Professor Paul

I like the tone RP took when talking about the other Republican candidates. He sounded as if they were schoolboys who really didn't understand the problem. I know he could go too far with this, but at the same time he might just be able to get away with it because he is older. And, I think a lot of people might like the fact that someone is scolding these politicians. I don't think this tone will work with Obama, but it might work with the Republican nominees.

I think a slightly gentler tone talking about

Obama as a young, poorly-informed economic naif could play very well and is entirely appropriate. On foreign policy it's a different issue. A harder line can be taken and people will accept it due to its clear moral connotations. The morality of economics is less clear to most people; there the ineptness of other candidates is key.

I'm going to get fired from my job

I'm going to get fired from my job if Dr. Paul doesn't stop doing television shows this week. Between watching the clips and coming back here to see if there are new ones, I'm getting absolutely no work done.

If he can continue at this pace, we won't have to raise any money to campaign. He can just get free TV.

No Offense but...

that was one of the best and most transparent replies I have ever evidenced here. lol Now get back to work :)


you too

Ha, I know. It used to be my lunch hour was enough to read/watch everything. But it is definitely now overflowing into my work time. Gotta love it though!

Screw the Federal Reserve, like they screwed us. End the Fed!

Competing currencies would certainly be better. Most anything is better than a Congressionally approved Banking monopoly!

Free includes debt-free!


This was fun

These guys can blather on all day and haven't got a clue what it's all about. So they get RP on, and he gets going on the dynamics of financial policy..... and they are left speechless. I may be laughing all morning!

The main person that

The main person that interviewed him sounded like she had no idea what he was talking about.

Additionally, I think the fed issue, among other issues, will separate Paul from the neocons.
