Contempt for title.

Notice how Schiefer calls him "Mister", that says it all. Bob is status quo, he's only interested in insulting a 12 term sitting congressman and physician and veteran.

Bob's only goal is to insult Congressman Dr. Ron Paul there is absolutely nothing else going on here.

political weather vane

Wow, did that end awkwardly for She-fer-brains, what a punk a$$hull he is to accusingly repeat the question, how fricken smarmy was that? Now he can't support Mitt because Romney is a political weather vane, he will point in what ever direction he thinks the wind is blowing and just etch-a-sketch what his past positions were. He may be a nice power lunch partner, but Romney is the polar opposite of RP who has not wavered in 30 years as opposed to Romney's constant waffling. That's the truth.

On foreign policy and a 3rd party run, RP says he has the backing of 75% of the American people. Do the GOP Neocons or the Democrats? NO!! If we get GOP nomination, we win, if we go 3rd party WE WIN! In your face Sheefer, BOOM!

"Death before surrender" R3VOLUTION 2012

Seems like the same old media questions!

1)Your not going to win so do you plan to drop out? 2)Are you going to run 3rd party? 3) Will you support Romney if he wins? Holy crap! They are still so scared of him! Kinda funny! Paul just inserts the truth and makes them all look ridiculous! What class, integrity, and style!

A better reply might be...

[Insert first name], is your hearing aid on? OR, are you getting forgetful? I just answered that question! let me run it by for you once more, slowly... watch my lips... got your pencil?

Why would I support someone besides myself in the general election, as the nominee? You mean you would expect me to vote for someone other than myself as the nominee?

Why would I choose someone completely polls apart from liberty, 180 degrees apart from the constitution, instead of say... Sen. Rand Paul, as my V.P.?

Get a life! Is this the best 'Face the Nation' can do for questions?

Yes. I posted here before on this subject

Front office of news network creates the questions, sometimes the journalist or pundit is involved, but sometimes not usually in a meeting before hand. The interview is like a scene played out by actor and interviewee. Sometimes in short interviews the interviewee gets question list. I used to work in TV news but moved to entertainment. Although news in America is just that entertainment.

Unfortunately you cannot be openly non - liberal or you won't stay employed too long. Unless you're Clint Eastwood.

"This isn't what the govern meant"

"Win the crowd and you will win your freedom"

It was on late here...

I'm broke, and so I get Over-the-Air TV; the show showed up here at 4 PM Pacific. I sat through a half-hour of Biden - the most notable part of his schpeil was how unctuously he weaseled out of the question, "What's the mission in Afghanistan?"

Dr. Paul, of course, was awesome, but after sitting through 15 minutes of Jabba the Newt, I wanted to go wash my hands or something.

By the way, has anyone, anywhere, ever stated, in, say, 25 words or less, what exactly the mission in Afghanistan IS?

Freedom is my Worship Word!

Jabba the Newt

I am cackling as I write this (or "LOL"). If "Jabba the Newt" is your coinage, thank you for creating it. If it is not, thank you for delivering it to me. In either event, I plan on stealing it forthwith.

Jabba the Newt

I think I coined it, but it's public domain now. Quote on!

Freedom is my Worship Word!

Mission in Afghanistan -

They won't admit it....
" to get military contractors as deep into the publics wallets as possible"

Read the gov. report on military war waste contracting, for support on that statement.

Listen to interview of Army Ranger Adam (re. Jerry Doyle 11/11/11), he was building Baskin Robbins ice cream stores while stationed there.

America makes weapons, tobacco, food, and entertainment. Weapons is first...the industrial military complex has us by the throat.

"This isn't what the govern meant"

"Win the crowd and you will win your freedom"

Thanks for this

I've suspected this for a long time, but I wonder if there's any "official" "mission statement" or anything, or if "they" are just weaseling us into Communism, which is my worst fear. Living in California now, I could probably get a prescription for cannabis - I was enlisted in the USAF during the "Vietnam Advisory Campaign," of which the ostensible purpose was to stop the tide of expanding Communism.

Now that the Communists have taken over Washington DC, I'm traumatized! Sort of a delayed-onset post-traumatic stress disorder.

As it is, I have to get my cannabis on the black market. )-;

Freedom is my Worship Word!

I wish

somebody would advise Bub Sheet-fer-brains that the proper salutation for Ron Paul is Dr. Ron Paul or Conressman Paul...not Mr. Paul. Just annoys me. Sorry.

No respect

Media has no respect for Dr. Paul. And lack of respect is contagious to the watchers. Media is elitists.

"This isn't what the govern meant"

"Win the crowd and you will win your freedom"

Ron Paul is a Blue Republican

And he is trying to save it from comma. GOP lose it's way. If they want to be relevant in the future they need to heed the sound arguments of the doctor it's the only way. Only liberty, freedom, sound money, sound foreign policy and balance the budget is the only way to restore America. This country is the beacon of freedom and liberty and we have the highest middle class and prosperity in the world. And we let it slipped away. Ron Paul or Nothing.

"When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. When the government fears the people, there is liberty."

Download Ron Paul Pamphlets Free!

Ron Paul pamphlets on Abortion, Israel and the Federal Reserve written from an evangelical perspective can be downloaded free from the attached web site. These pamphlets are very effective on Christians that really care to know the truth. Give them a try and tell other Ron Paul supporters!


The "evangelical" part is the part I fear and loathe the most about Dr. Paul's "supporters."

The Constitution, through the Bill of Rights, is supposed to guarantee freedom from religion: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion..."

You DO understand what "No Law" means, don't you?

God's Will is Free Will, and Free Will is God's Will, and I haven't yet heard of an Earthly religion that really embraces that Truth.

I'm voting for The Good Doctor anyway, because Freedom is my worship word, and Dr. Paul has already said that it's not the Federal Government's place to enforce his personal beliefs.

Freedom is my Worship Word!

You are right, but...

...think Still Believin is just trying to win over the Christian votes with that info. Believe me, where I go to church, it is full of neo-con people deceived by lies & they must be lead to Paul by morals & values first, so the pamplets are geared just for them only. They do not understand that without liberty they would not be allowed to even exist as a group! A lot of them are going for Santorum because they do not study facts. Faux news is a lower God to many of them. I say "become all things to all people in order that you may save some". What you say is true, just trying to tell you from a different perspective I guess. =)

Different perspectives...

Different perspectives are what Freedom is all about - I just don't want one or the other enforced with government arms.
