Respect and love to all supporters!, May we unite under mankind!, Don't let fear rob you of your potential, one MLK, one JFK, and one Ron Paul was a true threat to them, because those men found their voice, NOT FEAR, find yours and we will win!!.

Though many need to realize that Ron Paul's message, is one that is threatened by the accumulation of tyranny, and ignorance, therefore one must be ready to pick up his/her gun in order for the ascension of liberty to live, there is a possibility that blood will be spilled, there already is, so some of us have many dreams and hopes that may need to be sacrificed in order for the human race to unite

Are you ready to have the most powerful entity on earth after you, harass you, threaten you, or even torture you, will you stay home in hiding, or be ready to die, WHEN YOU ACCEPT DEATH, YOU TRUE SELF EMERGES, YOU WILL LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST, we don't accept this message of liberty because Ron Paul said so, we accepted it because Liberty is the way of life, it holds no profit, or gains for the ESTABLISHMENT, its a threat to its existence, that's why this will be a fight worth dying for, I know fully well they could be watching what were saying, let them!, because if we hide, then we've already lost half the battle, Go forth and SPEAK!, and live like its the United States we dream of!

The point is well made,

We are in good company, if only we choose to stay there.

The reality of politics

Sometimes reality smacks you in the face, maybe that is what is going on... the hope we hold for Liberty and Freedom is just that without action. To think that we will in one bold move "fix" America is a utopian delusion. We have been working hard for many years to bring the message of Liberty to the people and have succeeded at a level never seen in our lifetimes, but this is not something that will resolve overnight. Politics is nasty and dirty, our candidate is not... that makes it difficult for political gain at all, the all or nothing approach will not result in all, it will more likely result in nothing... I trust Ron Paul to get us something for our efforts and I know his motivations are as mine. The prize is not the presidency, or some other favored office... the prize is the awakening to liberty in America and the acceptance of Freedom as an ideal. If anyone makes a "deal" it will be to advance the cause of Liberty, and that is a worthy goal.

I wasn't thrilled with the broadcast at the end

He mentions negotiating for policies and cabinet appts. What good would it do to negotiate w Romney at the convention since he's not even electable in the republican party much less the public at large?

GOP Covention

If Dr. Paul negotiates some position in Romneys Administration..there wont be a Romney Administration..It will be 4 more years of our glorious marxist ldr..and the end of America as we know it.

Ron Paul or none at all

I'm disappointed to learn HR107 originated from the Paul camp.

A "sense of congress" is more of the same weak response we've been getting from the repubs for decades. If there has been an impeachable offense, submit articles of impeachment.

Undo what Wilson did

It really does mean something though

It's like an opinion from the Supreme Court, set's precedent.

Would it be better to impeach outright? Sure, if that were possible, but this resolution is not just an empty gesture.

In his TST the main thing Dr. Paul said was to cut the funding.

Congress is fully responsible for that.


Does Obama deserve a second term?? My thoughts:


I'm really outspoken with my friends, but this is the first time I've made a video on political topics. May do more if I get a response.

"No physical quantity explains it's own existence, and no amount of time can consume an infinite series of events to bring you to the present, which means all of these somewhere have to be explained by one self-existent cause which is not physical."

Keep making videos...the more the better imo.

Unnoticed by most, a scorched earth attack is underway to intimidate and eliminate any and all opposition to the masterful marxist. Overwhelming that operation with numbers is a good way to fight. So, keep it up; your passion comes through well. My only critique would be to finish your sentences. Your voice trailed off a few times.

Undo what Wilson did

Listen closely to what this Senior Policy Advisor is saying

That Ron Paul will “negotiate for policy positions, cabinet positions, VP running mate in exchange for delegates who… support Ron Paul….”

Is this really what Ron Paul is planning to do on the advice of his “Senior Policy Adviser”?

And again I point out how Jesse Benton back in February 22 said on MSNBC “that there’s a chance [Ron Paul Supporters] might come [Romney's] way…” if Romney “talks” to them about this or “talks” to them about that. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fpSdRWGoR5k&feature=player_em...

If these are not the intentions of Ron Paul then there definitely is insubordination and shenanigans taking place from the senior staff within the campaign. If this truly is Ron Paul’s intention then everyone’s being hoodwinked into diverting all their energies for freedom towards driving the final nail into the coffin of liberty.

People who are waking up have got to stop behaving like the dumb sheep they once were and behave like seasoned warriors at war defending the republic.

Does Ron Paul know that Benton and Fein are making these comments to the press? And if he doesn't that means they are working for the establishment and are isolating him and his views from his supporters.

Either way, whether these views represent Ron Paul or not.. this is very serious stuff. I just hope that the majority of RP supporters are not like some of the ones I see here on DP behaving like a bunch of grateful sheep by kissing CNN Cafferty's butt for saying something any person with common decency would say and should of said 10 years ago.

You are very right...

on that people need to consider all the information put out by media, advisors, etc.. and not just assume everything is so good and that Paul will win the nomination.


This is Not The Moon

You are limited to the cards that are in your hand.

If you trust Doctor Paul to become your President, then you should surely trust him to make the best possible decisions at the convention.

Be assured - he knows what we want - probably better than most of us.

I heard it differently.

Listen carefully. Bruce did NOT say that it is RON PAUL, per se, who would "negotiate for policy positions, cabinet positions, VP running mate in exchange for delegates." I think he was saying, in general, that the convention will be in such disarray that THAT is what to expect as the GOP is scrambling to select a ticket. I think it was more of a realistic "predictive" sort of comment on what will happen.

The fact is, we really don't know what the good doctor has up his sleeve, but I know he is as smart as a fox. I trust him to use the GOP's confusion and desperation to his advantage in some way that I'm just not smart enough to see at the moment.
Bruce was correct in saying this will be the most exciting convention we've seen in 100 years.

I've got my popcorn ready. ;)

No... you read carefully. Here's his exact quote:

"There’s a fair amount of room to negotiate for policy positions of one sort or another even cabinet positions, vice presidential running mate in exchange for certain delegates that are controlled or have voiced support for Ron Paul and the other candidates."

This can not be interpreted in any other way than it reads. A seat at the establishment GOP table in exchange for "certain delegates that are controlled or have voiced support for Ron Paul and the other candidates."

You're right. In his view it was a "realistic 'predictive' sort of comment."

Or shall I say it in clear terms instead of the mumbled-jumbled "sort of this and sort of that" way: A realistic prediction of what WILL happen.

There was no link provided to "read" anything.

All I see is a link for listening. Even your comment, which I responded to, reads "Listen closely to what this Senior Policy Adviser is saying." So, that's what I did, and my response was simply that I heard something that didn't sound so definitive.

In reading it, yes, I agree that it is hard to interpret it any other way. And that is very disturbing.

My apology

I typed out what he said word for word to give it more clarity... it seems when it's read... it is, as you say, "very disturbing."

No chance of getting a seat at GOP estab table...

Even Palin and true tea partiers have not been able to get a seat. Palin has been fighting and negotiating with gop establishment to get seats for tea partiers, but the gop estab has rejected her. Tea Party has many seats in congress, money, and Palin's name behind it along with vast conservative support of her, and she still could not achieve anything with gop.

i am not sure they will give paul or any libertarian-leaning person a seat when they discuss wars and other things.


"not sure they will give paul a a seat"

It's not about whether or not they will offer Paul a seat... it's about whether or not Paul will accept the offer of a seat.

If he does he's on his own. He'll lose the most important support he needs. He'd be better off just retiring going back home with his wife because unlike the solitude and independence he had as a congressman, in a cabinet position he'll be like a sheep among wolves... they will tear him to pieces.

BRAVO to Bruce Fein! As a volunteer at Ron Paul's 2008...

..."Rally for the Republic" in Minneapolis, I was assigned to escort Mr. Fein to the stage for a speech.

He read John Quincy Adam's 1821 speech on American foreign policy during its first nearly half century of existence.

If ONLY the United States had followed the principles laid forth by Quincy Adams in that great speech:

"But she goes not abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She is the champian and vindicator only of her own."

"She well knows, that by once enlisting under other banners than her own, were they even banners of foreign independence, she would involve herself, beyond the power of extrication in all the wars of interest and intrigue, of individual avarice, envy and ambition, which assume the colors and usurp the standard of freedom."

Sadly we didn't follow those ideals.

So here we are - hated by millions around the world.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

stop funding the wars

This resolution seems redundant to what is already spelled out in the Constitution. A more productive move would be to go ahead and draw up articles of impeachment. Even that probably would not affect Obama or Panetta, though, since, even assuming clear sailing through impeachment hearings in the House and a trial in the Senate, by the time it was over, so would their term in office and, meanwhile, we'd be a year or more into these wars with thousands more dead, billions more spent, and a new list of enemy nations.

The House has the power of the purse and as soon as they decide to cut off the funding, the wars stop. Is there any reason they couldn't do it today?

At the end of the interview

Bruce Fein talked about delegates and collaboration with other candidates. I can't imagine Dr. Paul holding any position other than President of the U.S., nor can I imagine any of the other 3 candidates being his V.P. or being appointed any position in his administration. I hope Fein realizes that we want Paul or no one at all.

They arent going to realize

They arent going to realize it until its too late.


Impeach? Yes!
