Ron Paul Highlights in South Carolina Debate - 1/16/2012

Video Thanks to Joe Plummer


[Thanks drheyde!]

It's crunch time in South Carolina. Five Republican presidential candidates will face off in a Palmetto State debate on Monday night, just five days before the first-in-the-South primary. South Carolina's primary is critical -- the Palmetto State's winner has been the eventual GOP nominee in every contested race since 1980. Fox News' Bret Baier will co-moderate the debate in Myrtle Beach.

I bet it is going to be.

A Romney-Gingrich lovefest. I hope RP gets more time than in the last couple debates, but I expect he will be marginalized once again.

The media has been treating him as if he DIDN'T came in third and second, and that's how they will treat him tonight.

The best we can hope for is some blowback from local South Carolinians to what more and more people see as outright censorship of Ron Paul by the lamestream media. And of course some catchy oneliners from the good Docter as well.

Please show my questions some love -

Please give them a thumbs-up if you think they have merit...

Lately, the Chinese central bank has been buying large amounts of gold. They have stated that they will eventually back their currency with gold. What affect will this have on the U.S. dollar and what should be the reaction of the Federal Reserve?

What do you see as the end-game in our war on terror? Will the United States be able to eventually kill every potential terrorist or do you foresee a need for us to occupy portions of the Middle East and other foreign lands indefinitely?

Seems like some Americans

Seems like some Americans have short memories. I think if Dr. Paul keeps bringing up the fact that Romney supported bailouts when the majority of the people were extremely against them....might help. And then tying these bailouts to the dollar crisis we were heading towards. See again, saying just "dollar crisis" doesn't wake people up. They just go ho-hum and go about their business like it's nothing. They don't understand "dollar crisis". If they were to understand exactly what the "dollar crisis" means, it might wake up a few people. Most don't know. Completely oblivious to what's happening. I promise, there are still a lot of people who see higher prices and have no idea why. I hope Dr. Paul points out Romney's flaws because if Romney is actually pulling away, it gives a perception that he's the one that's going to win and they have to know about him. We can't afford to have another presidency with the same policies again. It will be devastating.

RP needs a little coaching on this point.

The point is that he needs to SELL his ideas more. The reason people don't understand the "dollar crisis" is because they don't understand how it will and IS impacting them.

RP should say:

* The reason your dollar is buying less food and gas, the reason prices are going up, is because the value of the dollar is going down. I predicted this. ONLY I have predicted this. The reason for this is that our central bank, the Fed, is destroying our currency. This is the KEY issue of our day. NONE of my fellow candidates on this stage agree with me.
* ONLY I have accurately predicted our current economic/dollar crisis.
* Everyone else on state, and including Obama, either didn't and couldn't predict our recession
* Would you rather elect somebody who didn't know it was coming, or DID?
* Or if they did know it was coming, they chose to deceive you.
* Would you rather have somebody who didn't know and did nothing to prevent it, or DID know and chose to deceive you?
* Or would you rather have somebody who KNOWS that the central bank is destroying our dollar, and who needs to have light shown on its secret dealings?
* Do you want the American dream back?
* Do you want to save America?
* If you still have hope, and want real change, vote for me, President Ron Paul. I will cut $1 trillion my first year!
* I have a record that you can see and judge for yourself. ONLY I have stood for principle. ONLY I am for fiscal responsibility. ONLY I am unwaveringly for the US Constitution and Liberty.

Doug Wead needs to write something like this out, and RP needs to learn a few sound bites.

He also needs to explain HOW the currency is destroyed...

It isn't enough to say the currency is being destroyed. It needs to be explained that because there is so much more money in circulation due to the wild money printing at the Federal Reserve Bank, the dollar buys less and less the more dollars there are in circulation.

We see this every time we buy groceries and see INFLATED prices higher than they were before. The prices have risen to try to keep up with the overabundance of money in circulation as the amount of goods and services stays relatively the same.

Ben Ben Bernanke and his friends have the advantage of using the freshly printed money with today's purchasing power. By the time it filters down to us prices have gone up 20% --- not to mention our incomes have stayed the same!

stream and chat

Hi DP, there is a stream and chat set up here


come on by , lots of undecided folks find their way there through search engines. So help wake them up !


time is 9 not 8pm est right????


I don't expect FOX to give him speaking time that is proportional to his standing in the race.

However, I do expect more people than ever to be listening to Ron Paul with an open mind tonight.

Each opportunity to speak tonight will be the most valuable that we have had to date. :)

Life, Liberty... and the Pursuit of Happiness.

Thanks Michael

With Huntsman out

That means they'll have more time to spread around to Romney, Newt, & Santorum. And just for laughs, Rick Perry.

And when they finally give the good Dr a chance to speak, he'll level them all and they'll have to cut to commercial!

give him 89 seconds

that would be enough to bet the rest :)

On him supporting a consumption tax

I would love him to say: We already have a big one, its called inflation. This tax needs to be cut by reigning in the Fed, cutting government spending, and ending imperialistic ventures overseas.
