President Paul

Yes Yes Yes Yes Nobody can put the Truth out to the American people like Ron Paul! Anyone who can't see this is totally ignorant.






Out of the FKN Park...haha

is the front runner. He's smart honest and has more integrity in his pinkie finger than all these Jokers combined. Next Newt is going to tell us that he bikes 15 miles a day and jogs 2 miles each morning. RP 2012

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

For sure...

I was thinking about "debate" formats too! This was a good style, but more interaction between the candidates would be nice. I was thinking if each candidate had a certain amount of minutes of speaking time (10-15 min) that counted down while they speak. So they could take as long as they want to answer questions, or as short as they want to use their time on a better subject. So two candidates couldn't keep calling each other out on purpose to hog up all the air time! Then you randomly draw legitimate question cards out of a hat or something. And everyone gets the same amount of time and number of questions!

The TeeVee show

I saw the first part of it on the TeeVee this AM, and sat through Perry, Santorum (Santorum???), and Bachman plagiarizing what The Good Doctor has trying to tell us for thirty years, and by the time he finally came on, I was half-soporific and missed his best material. Thanks for the link!

But after about 15 minutes of telling me what I already know, I kind of found his dissertation on the economy a little soporific itself.

Freedom is my Worship Word!

We keep talking to ourselves.

There's only 10 comments on the youtube video :(

Ha Ha Ha. Michele B says,

Ha Ha Ha. Michele B says, "We need more manufacturing jobs. Steve Jobs recently said, before his death..." Really, before his death? Not after? She's so goofy.

If you walk blindly through life, you will run into a lot of walls.


Wow - $300,000 in 1 day - THAT'S A JOKE/NOT A STORY!


insane cain supporter

a chairman cain supporter posting a comment on that site says dr. paul is an obama clone. how can anyone be that confused??



And it was from 3 people. What a man for the people!


More and

more my comments "out on the web" never make it through. A comment I left there is pending approval. I'll check later...
Anybody else noticing the same thing?

Ron Paul 2012...and beyond

Did you post a URL?

I've noticed on many sites if you post a URL (website address) it gets auto flagged for review. (could be a nasty?)

Try breaking them up, or short versions ronpaul2012dotcom or ronpaul2012.com vs http://www.ronpaul2012.com

Or re-post without a URL and see if it goes through.
Just say check his website, or google this...

Unfortunately not

Don't count out Federal Reserve Chairman Herman Cain just yet. According to the article you link to "Since October 1, the campaign has raised $5 million at a rate of $1.5 million a week reports the Daily Caller."

That's 200k a day, nothing to laugh at. Hope it fizzles soon. 1,5m a week + millions of dollars worth of free media exposure = a real threat.

I'm not so confident the latest scandals is not some sort of trick. Watch out, he might bounce back all of a sudden.

We need to increase the flow of funds coming in to doctor Paul, and even more importantly, phone from home!

Is there a compilation of

Is there a compilation of Paul speaking, I don't really care for the banter in between.

Skip to 54:00

They speak with each candidate individually. No banter.


Newt calling to abolish the Dept of Energy and dramatically reform dept of interior?
Someone has been reading Ron Paul's Restore America Now plan...

bigmikedude's picture

I noticed that about Newt

Every time I hear him talk, he has lifted (thieved) another of Ron Paul's ideas.

The guy is a platform thief. Like he goes home and studies everyone's platforms and then pockets an idea out one, mostly Ron's, and the next time he is speaking, puts it across like it was his idea.

The guy is like a Remora.


is taking from Paul.

Nobody is really listening to Newton

Check out 2:26 in. :) That's probably what happened to Paul's event in DC too where the news media was going on about how 600 people left after Dr.Paul spoke lol

Who wants to listen to the other candidates crap when we know they are full of crap. :)

Did Rick Perry lift another

answer from Dr. Paul?

He doesn't want the Washington in the energy business? Government shouldn't be picking winners and losers?


Hear, O Israel: YHUH our God YHUH one. And thou shalt love YHUH thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.

My thoughts exactly

Perry is parroting Paul's [states rights] and [no federal energy subsidies] talking points. Sighhhh. Well at least its being talked about by more than one person now.

Santorum was also sounding a lot more Paul-like today.

Ron Paul was awesome as always.

I absolutely loved the part when Paul suggested Ben Bernanke announce his resignation and the crowd erupted in applause.

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

No Cain?

Interesting... very interesting. I thought he was a the big guy from the business sector.

The Chairman of Pizza and Mittens were AWOL

They apparently had better things to do then have a serious forum discussion with the business community. Both of them claim to be the business gurus.

Thomas M. Gallion

take a look at the comments

on the youtube page. only one so far. let Iowa know who won

15% Corp Tax? --- Ron Paul's Plan? Say what?

Newt 12.5% corp tax with no repatriation of monies

Santorum 20% corp tax with Reinvest strings attached repatriations of monies.

Perry 20% corp tax with? reinvest strings attached of repatriation of monies.

Did I hear that right?

Yes, please BUY this wonderful libertarian BOOK! We all must know the History of Freedom! Buy it today!

"The System of Liberty: Themes in the History of Classical Liberalism" ...by author George Smith --
Buy it Here: http://www.amazon.com/dp/05211820

I believe he said

"as a very modest START" 15%, with zero tax on repatriation of money. He doesn't claim he can do everything right away because he is a realist as compared to a politician.
