Adam Kokesh is, like, a grillion times the man Rand is. The contrast between a real, sincere human being trying to communicate ideas and a politician reciting prepared banalities is very striking. I haven't seen a juxtaposition like that since the last republican debate I watched.

RE: I really think that Adam Kokesh makes some really good point

Well, no one knows the answer to this with certainty, but the consensus among the well-informed seems to be that Dr. Paul knows nothing of all this, being "protected" by Messrs. Olson, Benton, Wead, etc. This seems likely to me.

Nailed it.

Nailed it.

This was an endorsement....

... for Tom Woods, not a message to Dr Paul. If he wanted it to be a real message to Dr Paul there would be absolutely no need for this public video. This just put a huge load on Dr Pauls shoulders which at the moment is already probably overloaded. Way to go Tom, just add some cred to yourself without thinking about the emotional consequences you may have just inflicted. Dr Paul is a grown man. He doesn't need to be told how or who to be....

He has to do it like this

becuase Jesse Benton has cut off all contact from the outside to Ron Paul....

Tom Woods is a True Patriot

Jesse is an Enemy to us all!


You know this HOW??

Another assumption stated as fact. Really tired of this crap on the DP.

RE: Huh?

It is very typical of political campaigns that the candidates are careful not to take time or be distracted by following news sources, relying on their staffs to review and synthesize information for them.

Ron Paul uses an iPad.

And his grandchildren are on this site (not Benton). Do you not think they tell their grandparents what their reading? Think how they feel about the attack on Rand.

RE: Ron Paul uses an iPad

I don't know. I never had much routine contact with my grandparents, especially when they were busy, and I don't think my family was unusual. It seems to me that if the Doctor were aware that the grassroots base is demoralized and shrinking, he would address all this in some fashion or another, either defending Olson & Co. or neutralizing them. I can't think anyone at all in his place would just let the situation stand as it is.

Think about how bad I feel

When rand endorses a war mongering bankster shill.

A man who proudly proclaimed he would have supported the NDAA. A man who invented Obamacare. A man who is on the wrong side of every issue there is.

Let his grandchildren feel bad for Rand, not for me.

Tu ne cede malis sed contra audentior ito

Ron if you endorse Mitt Romney

I am abandoning you!

It will be my duty to call you out and expose you as a FRAUD.

You have taught me not to compromise.

You have taught me not to blindly pledge loyalty to someone or some party but to be True to myself and the principles of Liberty!

By Endorsing and campaigning for someone who represents the opposite of all the ideals you and your movement satnd for you will be compromising your principals! Your Principals will no longer be in Tact! and I will have to remove myself from You!

Rand Paul and Jack Hunter have joined the ranks of Jesse Benton and John Tate as enemys of the Republic!

Dont you do it!

I love you as a Human being but I have to stay True to what I believe in!

So you're threatening Dr. Paul?

I don't understand why people are so angry about all this? I highly doubt that Dr. Paul would endorse Romney, but if he did, does that one action really negate all the good he has done? Honest question.

Not at all

It would mean nothing. But the average IQ around here lately has been 34 so what can you do..

Holy Cow this is earth

Holy Cow this is earth shattering. What is going on.



I almost always agree with Tom Woods...

...but I don't totally agree with him here. He says "just be yourself, just be Ron Paul," but this sentiment was preceded by a minute and a half of Tom Woods more-or-less telling Dr. Paul what he should do. If you want Dr. Paul to "just be himself," then why the video? I think, whatever Dr. Paul does, endorsement of Romney or not, he's doing what HE believes is in the country's best interest. We might disagree with him on that, but his mind isn't ours to delegate. We've made surprising progress with this movement, Dr. Paul endorsing Romney might not sit well with a lot of people, but it certainly would not be the end of the movement, nor the world. It might be that first step toward a better future. Might.

"more orless tellingDr.Paul what he should do." Oh you mean like

Rand Paul, Jesse Benton, and Trygve Olson are doing????????????????? Or did give them the same message that you're giving us???????????

My point is...

...let's give Dr. Paul a break from all the complaining. The guy is doing and has done everything he can to bring a great change in this country, but I see no reason for his supporters to badger him with their opinions. It also shocks me how hostile people can be on this website specifically. Like the guy who commented under you: he's sarcastic, and angry. No need for that.

Badgering? Opinions?

Not to be too confrontational, but is it not the duty of the governed to be vigilant in holding those who seek to govern accountable? If Obama's grassroots were to have truly held his feet to the fire when he began to expand the GWOT, there might have been an anti-war revolution in this country. But no, they moaned and groaned and did jack squat about it. I see nothing wrong with persistent demands from individuals of their elected officials, and of their potential ones. If Ron has a problem with that attitude, though I doubt he does, it would be utterly contrary to the message he's preached for the last few decades. And that would be worse than a hundred Romney endorsements.

"The rich man writes the book of laws the poor man must defend, but the highest laws are written on the hearts of honest men."

I totally understand your point, however...

...my point isn't that it's wrong to give him your opinion, what I'm troubled by is the melodramatic, hyperbolic nature of many comments. Comments like "I'm going to abandon you if you don't do what I say," or "you're a FRAUD."

Did you miss something...like

Did you miss something...like isolation and pressure?


...I'm merely opining.

Brought tears to my eyes...

I love you Dr.Paul, period. Keep it real and don't listen to anyone but what is in your heart. You are a true hero and your legacy is set as such. Love always!

The snakes are at it again on Dr. Paul's Facebook page

Looks like Benton or one of the other snakes got access to Dr. Paul's Facebook page. "Ron" just posted this: https://www.facebook.com/ronpaul/posts/239698726141841

It's time for the good Doctor to clean house in his campaign, this just can't go on any longer.

Great video by Mr. Woods by the way. I really need that. I'm glad Dr. Paul still has at least some real friends left around him.

RE: The snakes are at it again on Dr. Paul's Facebook page

This Facebook article is awful, just terrible. It is a perfect illustration of Tom Woods' point. "Snakes" is the correct term in all respects. Thanks for posting this.

wow - if you read the comments it is very sad.


I don'tagree with everytningAlexJones says, buthe hasnever taken

Ron Paul to task in everything I've ever seen of this guys productions, and I must say that he has been a huge support of Ron Paul, and what the liberty movement has been doing. Of course some out there make a good point that he turn off a good few too, but in a free market there is going to be outlets like his in media, and in my opinion he is a net positive even though I too have been less than impressed with Alex from time to time. Having said this I've never ever seen him take Ron Paul to task or try to advise Ron Paul in the way he did in this video. He knows something doesn't add up too, and his worried about it like us http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UpoizaEBr98

But, Alex in that video gets a little mixed up

as he talks about Ron when he means, I think, Rand.

The mistake Alex makes is pre-judging and leaping to conclusions, when he just doesn't have the facts. He's assuming far too much.

However, I do agree Dr. Paul must come out and talk to his supporters, if not indirectly through a TV interview where they ask him if he's endorsing Romney now (which I doubt he will). Even his good friend, Lew Rockwell, doesn't believe he would do that.

He just needs to clarify his feelings about the Tampa convention and declare his support for the Americans who have put so much on the line for him. We are Americans first and foremost. We are disenchanted with the existing, corrupt government. We need him to stand up with us and see this through the convention to the bitter end, as his campaign was the one who was pushing all of us to be delegates. Then, he can retire, and that's ok.




Tom Woods 2016!

I have the utmost respect for this man. Through all the controversies that have happened throughout this campaign, it seems that Tom Woods has always been on the right side, he's been on our side!
