I hope Iowans have the snowballs ready.

Ron stamered a bit, but overall he held his ground.


10 MILLION !!!!

"No army can stop an idea whose time has come"


The ONLY PLOY of FOX NEWS was the Iranian potential attacks. And, HOW STUPID DO THEY THINK WE ARE?

Eventually, Americans are going to wake up & realize this PERSISTENT PROMOTION AD NAUSEUM OF WARMONGERING is really all about the WAR MONEY MACHINE, and nothing more than that.

When they put 2 & 2 together~~~~WAR MACHINE & MONEY, they will "get it".

A WAR MONEY MACHINE TV AD would connect the dots & the REAL REASON we are in these undeclared, endless wars. And, top this ad off with a couple excellent video clips of our Veterans who KNOW & say what's really going on & how they want to come home~~~put that ONE SOLDIER on the beginning of the war clip we did with our boys on it.

You know where it is~~~send this idea to HEADQUARTERS....NOW


I feel like we were about to score the game winning touchdown and just fumbled.
We all know what Ron's trying to say on Iran but he needs a different message for the general public. He needs to keep it short... "I am against war and will do everything in my power to avoid a war and loss of life whenever possible. But rest assured if it becomes the only option I will come to congress and the American people with the justification for war and with a declaration of war use the full force of the US military to win the war quickly and come back home."

Oh sorry you don't like an

Oh sorry you don't like an intelligent truthful and correct answer.

Sorry you don't have the patience to watch a country drive itself off the cliff even when Ron Paul is yelling and screaming "There's a cliff up ahead!"

You can't stop a freight train from the outside. But when the train crashes and enough people get hurt they sometimes learn what they did wrong.

That's as good as it gets.

If we're lucky... really lucky, our hard work and sacrifice will pay off.

But the risk that it won't doesn't completely go away because people are arrogant and they have to find out for themselves that their way is going over the cliff.

That wasn't it

I like Ron BECAUSE of his anti-war stance. I like Ron Paul because he DOESN'T want to go to war with Iran. The reason why Ron didn't do as well as in the last debate is because he brought back the puckering of the lips forward and looking like a spoiled brat look. He brought the pissed off look back.

Ron HAS to smile more. Believe it or not, most of you guys were fooled into thinking Ron had some sort of magic after December 4rth but little did you realize that Ron just started to smile.

Tonight, he stopped smiling until the end. Maybe it's Fox news that does it to him.

Sean Effin Weasel Hannity

that interview was the worst, what a jerk eh. I hope Sean's dirty weasel demagoging motivated everyone here at the DP to donate more and campaign harder.

Should have heard his radio show today

When I heard him bash Ron Paul on his show today I decided to add another hundred dollars to my donation tomorrow. I'm fuming!

I hope, if these pandering demogoues DO start WWIII,

that they survive long enough to be caught by angry mobs carrying skinning knives.

Iran talking points...

Some things to consider:
-The claim in this report (search for the word "ongoing" on pages 8 and 10), that Iran's nuclear weapons program was suspended in 2003, but may "still be ongoing," is based on zero evidence. Most likely it's something that the CIA, Pentagon and/or Mossad added.

-Don't forget the big 4:
1) Iran-member of Nuclear NPT and Nuclear Program safeguarded by IAEA
2) Cannot enrich U-235 beyond 20%, less than 90+% required for Nuclear weapon
3) Has no delivery vehicle (missile or aircraft) that could reach the United States
4) 2007 NIE which states that Iran suspended its weapons program is still valid.

If you could simplify it even further that might help. Some Republicans have a hard time understanding any of that.

Add to the list

Iran has two powerful allies in Russia and China. They could give us enough rope to hang ourselves and then move in with their forces and weaponry... hello!

Where is money going to come from to fight another trillion dollar war? - China?

There are over 300,000 Jews living and worshiping in Iran

Thank you

I appreciate your input, Mike. I think I will print out this report and take it with me on rounds in my FL neighborhood for my neocon neighbors.

IAEA report

Wow this was a great debate!

Wow this was a great debate! Paul did really well. Of course the media elites are going to run and make Ron look like a super dove, but what's new with that? They've been doing this to Ron for awhile. Remember the legalize drug question at the first fox debate in SC? It was blown way out of proportion ,and Paul still manages to come out in the top three today. Sure, let the campaign run an ad on Paul's foreign policy, there is nothing wrong with that. However, even if they don't it's not like it matters. This is Ron Paul we're talking about. He THRIVES in controversy and rightly so by setting himself apart from the current GOP crop. He articulated well tonight, very well I thought, and even put Michelle in her place. Sure he didn't get the applause in the audience, but how many people were rooting at home and thinking, "Hmm this Ron guy really makes sense"? And here we were worried about newsletters....

The reason Ron Paul will WIN

The reason Ron Paul will WIN is because he has been BUCKING the ESTABLISHMENT for years and NOW AMERICA IS READY TO DO THE SAME......I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU ALL BUT I'M FED UP!!

Hannity continues to try and

Hannity continues to try and bring Paul down...good luck. Paul is up against a gigantic force. The third party threat is driving them crazy.

Ron with Hannity just now;

Ron with Hannity just now; saying Irananians acting in self defense; Principled to the core, because he certainly will lose votes for saying such things. His most controversial stand, foreign policy, requires his most pointed retorts, requires his best clarity, his best persuasiveness. This man, this American hero, is falling short on the challenge. Draining night. Not so draining that I won't whip out the credit card tomorrow though.

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.

He will lose votes?

No, he has my vote. I don't want a war with Iran.

Some people are never satisfied

I think this was his best. He came back at the stupid panel and came back at Bachmann. I don't think I've ever seen him so aggressive and taking extra time to finish his points, probably since the 1980's.

Fox News Poll - Who won the debate?

Vote at this Fox News Poll - wayin.com - Results will be announced on Hannity tonight


Hannity hisses and spits neocon poison at Paul...

...our hero restrains himself from betraying his complete contempt for this low down snake in the grass until perhaps the very last moment, when he broke a half smile and stuck the tip of his tongue out (as if his gag reflex had just kicked in).

URGENT: Go to wayin.com right

URGENT: Go to wayin.com right now and login and at the bottom click on the little photos and say ron paul won the debate.

However, my recommendation is to say you supported romney or gingcrap BEFORE the debate.

Hannity will have the results at the end.


will not let me vote, or verify my email


I'm also getting an error when I try to register :-/

The IAEA report

Bachman kept referencing an IAEA report on Iran...

Perhaps this is it. I haven't had a chance to look it over yet, but I'll throw it out there for those interested.


Is This Too Simple...

Here is my new comment to michell bachmann

Congressman Bachmann,

I have been a real fan of yours and I think you are a wonderful person and I completely admire your record and family commitments.

However, you understand not the dangers of foreign policy where we truly resort to REAL "isolationism”...and that is where we don't LISTEN to our enemies.

I went from a Donald Trump supporter to an avid Ron Paul supporter...and this time I will not waver.

Ron Paul's approach to foreign policy is not "dangerous" and I challenge you to be consistent to the Christian faith and consult the real thinkers of our faith such as St. Thomas Aquinas and St. Augustine and operate on the principles of a "just war"....to which Dr. Paul subscribes.

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

Nicely put.

Great job.

Maybe it was just me, but

did any one else notice that the applauses given after Dr. Paul's speeches were some-what attenuated? Didn't see that issue with any of the other candidates

I agree

I noticed the muffled applause when Dr. Paul spoke. I also heard muffled boos when bachman said he was wrong on his foreign policy. It sounded like 100's of people in the next building lol.

Ron Paul just won over...

... another 15% of the Democrats who are sick and tired of wars and can't stand the likes of Bachmann and Santorum. Don't underestimate the power of his anti-war stance among Democrats and Independents, as well as those who have suffered economic hardship. They link their hardship to the war spending. This outcome tonight will pay off huge. Now tomorrow we'll dump millions into campaign coffers.
