I have seen that crap so many

I have seen that crap so many times liberals seem to love to call not taxing a business as a subsidy. Because liberals believe all the money is the governments so by allowing a business to actually keep some of it, it is a subsidy. This is the trend many democrats are using to justify tax increases by calling them removing of subsidies instead of what they are, tax increases. Need to correct them every time on this and not let them get away with spreading this false crap everytime, and it isn't just Bashar, the President and on many commentary sections I see it spewed.

For real, some, if not, many

For real, some, if not, many may not agree with me but I have been in the medical billing field and Medicare, Medicaid is a subsidy. The beneficiaries are the gov't, and big pharma. The docs are stuck with crappy claim payments and process so, you in turn get crappy care.
You still have to pay into it, and there is still a deductible, co-pay, and script fees you are all responsible for. Just seems bogus when you get the same thing paying a monthly fee for private insurance. Now, we are stuck with no choice of either being robbed and belonging to the system or being robbed and belonging to the system. Told you not much of a choice, did I mention they give you the crappiest care and only approve generics(which have been proven to not be as good as the original rx even though both aren't good at all).

The question at the bottom of the screen:

Will Ron Paul supporters back Romney or Santorum?

Did anyone else throw-up a bit in their mouths when they read that?

The propaganda machine keeps rolling along...

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.

Setting a good example is a far better way to spread ideals than through force of arms. Ron Paul

my face got white hot in an instant, and beads of sweat developed around the entire crown of my head... literally. I had to recompose myself just to return to my work. it's sickening.

Also there's a link on Drudge to CNN's tally of the delegates pledged thus far to each candidate. of course, RP is listed as last, and is also not listed as securing the majority of delegates in any state thus far. Yes, they are obviously scared, but they are also filled with such hubris that it shields them from a considerable amount of criticism that is levied their way.

I hate to say it, but the MSM is incredibly effective at controlling perceptions of the masses. Most people have all but forgotten there are still four candidates in the GOP hunt. smh

Yes, but, if they are doing

Yes, but, if they are doing that they must really be scared!

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

accent ?

what's with these British accent hosts ?

Dr.Ron Paul's 2002 Predictions

It impresses the most gullible

...and the more it sounds like the BBC the more authoritative it feels - ironically so, because the BBC is the most subtle, deceitful channel in the world.

Not very photogenic, but he

Not very photogenic, but he sounds like a great guy! I'm surprised I've never heard of this guy before. As for this Bashir idiot, he needs to park his agenda in his dressing room. That wasn't hard to see through!

As long as he is honest...who

As long as he is honest...who cares what he looks like.

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

It wasn't hard to see through at all :)

I guess Bashir is a rookie, unlike Johnson, clearly.

Lets show Tim some love

By liking him on facebook.


He only has a meager 700 people who like his page at the moment. Lets show him the benefits of joining the cause of liberty.

Politicians are reading the writing on the wall

Expect more to start jumping ship over to our side.


Tim Johnson calls it like it is GOOD job Tim. However its only Ron Paul or no one at all for me.

Bashir didn't miss a single opportunity...

Bashir didn't miss a single opportunity to smear republicans and capitalism, and the congressman didn't miss a single opportunity to fail to correct the record and claim a nuanced non-comitment.

The interview was basically like this:

Bashir: Republicans are rapists, aren't they. Why do you like rape so much?
Johnson: Well Bashir, I don't always join the Republicans when they do that, and besides, it depends on who they are raping. So I reserve the right to participate or not.
Bashir: That makes sense, you certainly have kept your distance from those rapists.
Johnson: Ron Paul isn't a rapist like all those rapists.
Bashir: Indeed, Republicans are rapists aren't they.
Johnson: I said all politicians.
Bashir: Indeed all Republican politicians.
Johnson: Thanks Bashir.

"Ron Paul Has More Integrity In His Little Finger Than All The

other candidates put together." ~ Congressman Tim Johnson

Tim Johnson is my new best friend....Ha!

No, he said " Ron Paul has more integrity in his little finger

than all the rest of the POLITICIANS have in their entire body" (not just the candidates or the the republicans). So true.

They misspelled Illinois

Pathetic media.

Ignore the media's lies and propaganda.

It was a reference to the

It was a reference to the Sufjan Stevens album... Either a hipster or a rare devout Christian (who's aware Sufjan is a christian artist) snuck that in there and my guess with it being MSNBC, is on hipster.


I'm thinkin' ...

... it was intentional.

Believe me, I love media failure as much as the next guy, so this is one of the hardest posts I've ever made here.


Work for pay, pay for freedom
Fuck 'em all, we don't need 'em

Is It Spelled Ill Annoy?


Wow, they found the only Illinois pol who isn't corrupt

Going to go share the love, throw some fiat FRNs in Tim's campaign coffer.

Changing the subject--what's up with that hokey graphic, "WILL RON PAUL SUPPORTERS BACK ROMNEY OR SANTORUM?" Really, at this point, what part of Ron Paul, period don't they understand?

Take back the GOP and Restore America Now.

i really dislike martin

i really dislike martin bashir. i've seen plenty of his interviews and it's always the same:
democrats = good
republicans = bad

to be honest i'm really tired of the false left-right paradigm - hegelian dialectic

"My theories explain, but cannot slow the decline of a great civilization. I set out to be a reformer, but only became the historian of decline."
- Ludwig Von Mises

I am surprised the Judge

I am surprised the Judge never had this guy on Freedom Watch, at least not that I saw.

The only answer I thought he was a little weak on was the one about oil companies. He tried to answer by saying the whole tax code needs re-writing. The stupid politicians pass special tax breaks for businesses like accelerated depreciation, because they want to meddle in the free market. Then they bash the oil companies and say the breaks are subsidies.

He should just say he wants equally low taxes on everyone. Lets give the breaks to everyone instead of raising taxes on oil companies. As if the oil companies are just going to pay more in taxes and keep prices the same. Who do they think really pays the taxes? Eliminate the corporate tax.

Good comment

Corporations don't pay tax, people do.

Another boring, clueless, useless "journalist."

At least the Congressman was interesting and knowledgeable.

Alrighty then!! Adding "Tim Johnson" to my list

of kick ass human beings!  Done and done. :)

RON PAUL 2012!! Also: there is a Money Bomb this Friday!! Be sure to at least "Buy the good Doctor a beer!" ... donate FRIDAY at RonPaul2012.com!!

Tim Johnson

Is the congressman of my district. I had no idea he endorsed Ron Paul.

Youth for Paul RP2012 campaign rally in which

Dr. Paul spoke to record 5000+ audience at U of IL Urbana-Champaign is where Tim 'outed' himself as a Dr. Paul supporter, where he introduced Dr. Paul on to stage.

Here's RevolutionPAC (based in IL) full coverage of the entire event: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t9LwDa0bY98

Predictions in due Time...

"Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it's realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy." - Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul

Oh ya.

I had heard he was there. I wish I could have made it over to Champaign for that...

"Ron Paul has more integrity in his little finger than all of us other politicians "
