Classic Ron Paul: "Osama bin Laden was our good friend because he was a freedom fighter" 5/6/1999


More classics over at RonPaulClassics youtube channel:

These videos will be key, I think, in showing the consistency of Ron Paul.

Thanks RonPaulClassics! You have done a great service.

Gotta love when RP gets hot under the collar.

It's just thrilling.

My 20' homemade double sided Ron Paul banner is hanging in the basement waiting to fly over the interstate again. I'll have to do something about the 2008 part. Oh to hear the honks of approval and to see the thumbs up from strangers as they drive by...

Great Job Brutus

It would be interesting when you are assembling Ron Paul's speeches over the years to somehow mention the unintended consequences by not following his advice. It would be a lot of work but I think the Daily Paul could provide you with the needed volunteers. My favorite Ron Paul speech is, "Patriotism", Who are the real Patriots?

Wow!! I have never heard the doc kick ass like that! Still

as handsome as ever, and a lot more seasoned with campaigning and so much media work. I loved seeing this.


listen to that fire!

get em Ron!

i can't wait for the debates once he announces. he's gotta run... i'll donate just to see his debates.

I'm glad you guys like my youtube channel!

I plan to post all of the House floor speeches by Ron Paul that were recorded by C-SPAN on this channel. I created an overview thread for my channel on RPF (my nickname there is "leipo"). I will add the topic of discussion and a short quotation for each speech, and will provide links to the written text and to the complete House session video where the clip is taken from. It will take a few months, though, before i complete this task.

Here is the link to the thread (i will update it soon):

Thank you! This is fantastic!! You are doing a great service

to the Liberty movement and the good doc! This is a treasure trove.


If they had listened to him in 1999

and got us the hell out of Afghanistan, possibly 9/11 would not have happened, and everything else that we've gotten involved in since then. Good Lord, what does it take to wake these people in D.C. up???

Who Posted this? Brutus56?

You deserve a medal. Can we create a medal of honor for DP members that post stuff like this?

Hats off

Challenge Ron Paul -

This is ass-kicking. (4:40)

"Who wants to come down here & challenge me and say that I don't support our troops? I support our troops, I served in the military for 5 years..." - R. Paul

He is too cool.

I love this part....

“You talk about unintended consequences! What are the unintended consequences of supporting the KLA, who is supported by Osama Bin Laden? How absurd can it get?. Obama bin Laden was our ‘good friend’ because he was a ‘freedom fighter’ in Afghanistan and we gave him our weapons. But then we found he was not so friendly and we so arrested or captured a few of his men and he retaliated by bombing some of our Embassies [in Africa]. Of course then we retaliated by bombing innocent chemical plants that have nothing to do with it and innocent people in Afghanistan. So where are we now? We are back to supporting and asking should we give weapons to the [Muslim] KLA? I mean the whole thing is absurd. There is only one thing we should do and that is stop this funding and stop this war.”…

See,he promised

He promised to grow pretty purple flowers and when he did not he had to be removed so that we could do it ourselves.Very pretty flowers, Papaver somniferum.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.


I bookmarked RonPaulClassics youtube channel, too...

Ron Paul 2012...and beyond

holy crap!

I got chills watching this speech. I didn't read the date on this and thought he was talking about 9/11. Then when i realized this was a full 2 years before 9/11 even happened and its a completely different war is astounding. Why dont people wake up already to how truly great Dr. Paul is?

What a nice find, and a REALLY nice youtube channel.

Thnx for raising my awareness of it.

Wow, he has

really aged over the past 11-12 years.

Just one more negative in the campaign - he is 76, and he looks it. Compare how he looks here with his Patriot Act speech today.

R Harris

nah, face still looks the same, he just

stopped coloring his hair :)

Still as energetic as ever, hasn't slowed down. I had to practically skip/run to keep up with his pace at the End the Fed march in MN...he set a very strong pace across town, let me tell you, and I'm in pretty good shape!

Still handsome -

Dr. Paul is tall, tanned, & fit; Quite good-looking in person.

the amazing thing is how vibrant and

intellectually vigorous he is, far beyond any of the other seasoned congresscritters.

I don't care how old he looks

he is and always will be my president. I know because I wrote his name on my ballot with a big smiley face.

Many thanks,

to RonPaulClassics. Excellent Youtube channel and great archive of some of the best speeches ever given in the defense of truth, justice, and the American way(before the corporations bought our government).

Thanks for posting.

Wish we could trade todays problems for yesterdays

An air war in Yugoslavia vs. Iraq/Afghanistan/Pakistan/Yemen
An $8 billion supplemental vs. $100+ billion supplementals

I agree! RonPaulClassics

I agree!

RonPaulClassics youtube channel is great

I know your channel has many great videos on it, perhaps some of these videos will make their way to your site?

When I found that channel, I immediately watched every single video there. For example, I didn't know Pelosi and he argued in the 90s about abortion!
