The Best of Ron Paul Video


There are a lot of people that don't agree with Paul. Although, this is a stupid issue and they have every right to build their mosque, Gingrich's comments were NOT out of place, not matter what Ron Paul says.

Very well

done interview from our next President. One of the rare times on MSM that Ron's been given the time to answer the question. Ron Paul way too honest to be a Republican.

9/11 was an inside job .....time to get some answers..RP 2012

Isnt there anything else going on today? primaries ??

I dont agree with Ron on this issue. I see the property rights point. But thats like saying a woman walking around half naked at 3 am in a dark alley has rights not to be attacked, but its a stupid decision. If they build a mosque there then they do so at their own risk. People are pissed up there and I dont think it stands much of a chance to last without getting burnt down by some pissed off new yorker. But yeah you go ahead and build that mosque. Its your right to do so. Its also that womans right to walk wherever she wants but when she gets beat up and raped you cant look at her and say she made a wise decision.


It is rare, but I disagree with Dr. Paul on two points:

  1. While there may be the legal right to build a mosque at that location, it is not wise at this time. The simple reason is the great hurt and anger in New York and across our nation that will exist for many years. While the government - New York City, the State of New York, or the U.S. - may guarantee the right of the owners to build a mosque, the government could also censure the project.

  2. The term "Islamophobia" is derogatory in my estimation, as it infers an irrational fear of Islam. Though Christians have committed atrocities in the name of Jesus Christ or the Church, their actions contradict the very teachings of Jesus Christ and the Apostles. In contrast, the violence of so-called Islamic "radicals" is the logical outworking of Mohammed's teachings and actions. There is, and should be, an healthy fear of Islam -- as well as a healthy fear of any belief system that threatens liberty by force.

The "inconvenient truth" is that libertarian ideals require greater wisdom to implement. Unfortunately, it seems that our federal government does not possess great wisdom. It seems to either overreact or under react to these situations.

I do agree with Ron Paul that our foreign policy has brought us many problems.

I don't believe your first

I don't believe your first point is applicable. That location in NYC is private property, and whether or not building something there is "wise" is not something Ron Paul, as a congressman, is concerned about. It is not the business of the federal government what is built on private property. For Ron Paul to say anything different than what he did would be in direct opposition to the libertarian philosophy. A true libertarian does not make the mistake of getting into whether or not building a place of worship is "wise". That is completely beside the point.


Well said.

Ron Paul for president.

Well spoken.

Much better then last night

If you give Ron Paul respect, he'll engage any conversation as long as he is given time to explain the issues and not be badgered incessently like that neoturd did on AC360.

Real eyes realize real lies

We want our country back

Every year is a year for Ron Paul!

I'm not much into this 'apology game'--

not sure if that's an exact quote--

this is why I like Dr. Paul.

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--
