I can't believe how brainwashed people are.

How can people be so fooled into thinking it is are duty and responsibility to be around the world keeping everyone safe? Its gotten to a point where they hear it enough from everyone that they just believe it, and don't question it anymore. There is nothing that our wars and occupation and random bases everywhere have done for the safety of the United States and our citizens. As Ron keeps saying there is a difference between national defense and militarism, could you just imagine if we brought all that money back here? We really would be untouchable, and that is national defense. Isolationist labeling is ridiculous. I hate when people label something because it might have a similarity to another ideology or belief. Oh you have a tiny black mustache, you must be a nazi, and hate jewish people. Sadly our compulsory education just keep brainwashing the youth to follow, not teaching them real history. Oh, wow that was a good rant, I needed to get some of that out. Thanks for reading. Go Ron Paul 2012.

O'reilly doesn't apparently doesn't get the guest concept.

It involves letting the guest talk.

O'reilly will still be spouting the neo con agenda as the empire collapses into bankruptcy from the perpetual wars for perpetual peace.

How safe will we be then?

What a buffoon.

That A*sh*le needs to be brought down a peg or two!

Smug, ignorant, jerk that O'Reilly is, I hope I live to see his face rubbed in the dirt! He just kept talking over Stossel without letting him get a word in edgewise.

On the plus side, I liked the answers Stossel gave (when he was able to squeeze in a few words).

A pox on the house of Fox!

I hope so

Not anything there to save.

We were attacked by Afghanistan!?


If men are good, you don't need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don't dare have one.

I want to play the clip

over and over again where orielly called stonsel nutty for agreeing with ron paul. I know a lot of people that think stonsel is the only smart talking head so if they see the paul bashers bashing him they may start to think there is something to ron paul.

Nobody wins on BO

Nobody does too well, IMO, on Bill O, not because BO has an ounce of integrity or intelligence or salient worldview, but because of that wholesale rotten style of clipping off people, making some broad counter claim and ending each exchange to give himself the last word, the name calling (nutty, pinheads) on and on.

In fact, I can barely sit through any interview he does. I don't even know how he's economically viable, I don't understand what large audience likes to listen to this style of one-sided interviewing, dismissal, and quiet anger.


And poor Stossel. I love him, and his views are perfect, but I always wonder if he HAS to use that huge pantomime style as if he were constantly explaining things to very young children. Is that the only reason he's allowed on TV all these years? Is he actually showing us how we all have to speak? (I ask this half-seriously)

And, to other commenters' points, the 9/11 attacks were not 1) from Afghanistan, and 2) not from another government. It was a dozen Saudi Arabians with boxcutters and flight school (per the news).

Our wars are like revenge-plot-goes-wrong movies (a la Fargo, A simple plan, before the devil knows your dead) where we kill 6,000 Americans to avenge the death of 3,000.

ABOLISH THE DEPT. OF ED TOO?! O'Reilly must be right -- such radical, nutty ideas could never be popular!

Wait a minute. Didn't Reagan have those same radical ideas when he ran for President? Oh, yes, he did, come to think of it.


"We were attacked from Afghanistan."

-----Uhhhhh, when did this happen? Is Fox seriously trying to sell that lie again? More of the alleged terrorists were from Saudi Arabia than from Afghanistan so I guess we were ultra-attacked from Saudi Arabi. But if you actually said that then our military response in Afghanistan wouldn't make much sense would it Bill?

The Republican Party is

The Republican Party is destroying itself by not acknowledging the power of our ideas.

Only the acceptance of the truth can defeat systemic evil.

My thoughts, exactly. Totally

My thoughts, exactly. Totally out of touch with what a true republican wants. And that is after they sent out MILLIONS of surveys, too.

I Thought Stossel did great...

Stossel barely had a chance to speak, but he kept his cool and maturity.

He made BO look terrible. He was basically telling BO that he agreed with all of those positions he criticized about Ron Paul, and BET 1000 dollars on air that he thinks Ron Paul will win at least 1 primary. I thought that was great!

I would rather Ron Paul be fought than ignored!

"First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win."

This interview made me want

This interview made me want to puke.

They both put words into Ron Paul's mouth.

Screw the news.

Stossel is normally good,

Stossel is normally good, woefully unprepared in this piece. Must be ready to whip out the 700 military bases stat, and so much more. Dept of Education, Bill, so you support the doubling of its budget? Why, where are the results? You believe throwing govt money to govt schools is a good reason to borrow everyday from China and burden those same kids with higher taxes and less opportunity in the future?

10-15 million more voters need to believe in non-interventionism (liberty) at home and abroad to change America. Minds changed on Syria. Minds changing on privacy. "Printing money" is part of the dialogue. Win minds through focus, strategy.

o'reiley the brainwasher. I

o'reiley the brainwasher. I think alex Jones is dead on, they say he cant win to try to get people not to vote for him

I like Stossel, but he

I like Stossel, but he dropped the ball a little here.

The first response that came to mind when O'Reilly suggested it's worthwhile keeping American soldiers in S. Korea in the event of a nuclear attack from N. Korea was "Besides being vaporized what would our soldiers do?"

Then like RP did to Hannity a few years ago when O'Reilly suggested it was a bad idea to abolish the IRS Stossel should have asked him "Do you like the IRS?" (Even Hannity said he didn't.)

Then when suggesting eliminating the Dept. of Ed. was a bad idea, well, that's yet another softball and Stossel didn't swing.

Then O'Reilly said he didn't want to take the Paul vs. Trump bet 'cause he didn't want to be rooting one way or the other when he's already doing that with the bet that was made.

Stossel could have made O'Reilly look real stupid real easily and didn't.

he is a pretty laid back guy.

he is a pretty laid back guy. He doesn't seem very enthused, which I guess is a characteristic of his. But it doesn't work to great in interviews. If O'reilly had challenged Judge Napalitano, O'Reilly wouldn't even had offered the bet.

Stossel's hands may be tied...corporately speaking

Don't make the top stooge at foxnews, look like the buffon he really is.

Watching that smarmy ignorant scumbag with that smirk on his face is not good for my health.



"We'll attack them before...

I don't want to spend anything."

O'Reilly is in fantasy land. There is no credibility in those back to back statements.

Let's buy Stossel a dinner...

... what a classy guy... nothing isolates more than illegal wars, invading other countries, imposing sanctions on countries, prohibiting US citizens to travel to certain countries... that is isolationism... nothing brings countries together like trade and Ron Paul wants us to trade with everyone... how stupid do you have to be to work at Fox... the IQ of a fruit fly?

"Mr.Stossel handled himself

"Mr.Stossel handled himself wisely here. Let us be reminded that the msm also predicted Rand Paul as a loser and noncontender until he beat the establishment representative."

...Rand and our gang just didn't beat the Establishment and all their cronies ... we smoked 'em by 25 points!

We fired back in the media war this time and likely got 5X's more positive coverage with the CPAC thing than the Gerbels crowd @ Fox got with the original smear tactic.

We took our lumps in '08, showed what we learned in 10 with Rand, and now we've grown our muscles. Bring it!

Bill...a real piece of geniune crap

I've seen things less filthy in public toilets

O'Reilly Poll "Does Ron Paul have a chance?"

Here is the link http://billoreilly.com/poll-center lets let him know


Stossel really missed out on the opportunity to call out O'Bile-y on this Faux news isolationist crap. Non interventionism is not isolationism. O'Bile-y even set him up when he said Dr. Paul is an isolationist on the global economy and Stossel whiffed. He also let him go when he said Dr. Paul would not respond to a country who attacked us first.
I love Stossel, but I had no idea he auditioned to play the part of Alan Colmes to get into Faux and i am really disappointed.


Ron Paul isn't trying to destroy the Republican Party...but he is trying to eradicate the NeoCons and their suicidal philosophy from the Republican Party. And...with help from all of us...yes we will destroy the RepubliCon Party and re-make it in our own image..just like God. Yes..that's right we are all Gods. Freedom Gods!

Well said!

Mr. Oreilly needs Mr. Stossel and Ron Paul on his show...

for ratings. This is nothing new or alarming. The msm has already showed their cards. They have started their tactics. We know what Mr. Oreilly is about. The msm wants to say a lie enough times in hopes that it will discourage people from listening to Ron Paul. However, it has already began to backfire. Each time Congressman Pauls name is mentioned his following increases. Because he shares the truth about freedom and his concerns for the people.
Mr.Stossel handled himself wisely here. Let us be reminded that the msm also predicted Rand Paul as a loser and noncontender until he beat the establishment representative.
The more ideas that Dr. Paul shares of freedom and the power the people trully have the more people listen.

Thanks Mr. Stossel for your stance. You handled Mr.Oreilly very well.

Continue the fight for freedom from Tyranny.
