He's a doc. That knife is called a "scalpel".



These kind of interviews

are simply to get Paul's followers back on their side and act as though they are treating the Dr. with respect. They believe they have accomplished their mission by blocking any chance of him receiving the nomination and are now in damage control because they are aware of our numbers. You can expect the GOP to behave in the same calloused and cavalier fashion towards us once they are positive they have their poster boy for corporate welfare installed as the nominee. Too bad for them we realize you can't make friends with or trust a viper.

It's unfair that you group "them" all together

Your comment is a bit presumptuous and slightly conspiratorial. Unless you can somehow support such a bold claim, it's likely best to present it as your own opinion rather than fact. This particular show and Joe specifically has--to my knowledge--always been fair and respectful towards RP. Not to say some in the media aren't doing what you say, I just don't think it's entirely accurate to throw everyone into one category--specially if their past actions don't support the notion.

If I have in any way

insulted your delicate sensibilities regarding "Joe" you have my apologies. Of course it was presumptuous of me to even dream there might be a conspiracy to deny the Dr. his due. I, myself, am not a fan of "Joe's" and have only seen what I have of his show on the internet. The point of my post was to reflect upon how the media is now giving the Dr. much more air time as well as a begrudging respect now that he is mistakenly considered to be a has ran and not to degrade any ones choice of whom they deem worthy of listening to. In the future it might serve you well not to advise individuals on how to present a comment, if you have an issue with what I say, lay out your specific difference and let the chips fall where they may, but never assume you are in any position to lecture me upon the way I should address any issue.

Exactly, the establishment

Exactly, the establishment doesn't currently view us as a threat.

Have you ever noticed

you never see Mitt Romney on a Panel of live people discussing Federal Policy? he is either on Camera, or on a pre-recorded Interview. Ron Paul is the only one who can tackle spin questions in person with an Iron Fist!

His name is Edward Snowden

What is Capitalism?

Ron Paul!!!!!!!

I love you!!!!!!!!!!!

Also, Gov. stole his money for Social Security. He's just trying to get it back!

those people are

those people are jackals....laughing hyenas


Makes me all giddy!!

I love when Dr. Paul gets on a roll about liberty! He just keeps talking and talking and you can tell he's trying to fit as much in as possible. Then he starts using his hands and his voice gets a little louder. LOVE IT!! I love that he is so committed and passionate about the message.


I would have liked to hear this much support months ago to educate the American People.

You noticed they still cut him off (around 3:47 to about 3:59) when he began to speak about "the questionable way, who gets seated, you know in Nevada it is controversial". (as a state delegate I saw the horror)
Just before that they asked if Mitt Romney had asked him to speak at the convention. I'm new to all this still, is it already Mitt's place to say who is speaking at the convention???


Sorry, I actually loved this interview! GOD BLESS YOU RON PAUL!!!


Yes, I did notice how they cut him off at that point.

It was very disturbing to me how they MUST stick to their agenda and do everything they can possibly think of to NOT have people informed and aware of what's really going on in this country.

Dr. Paul held his ground throughout the bs going on all around him.

Excellent Interview It Made My Day

I Feel better just from watching this.I cant watch the news other than the weather channel anymore it makes me physically ill.


That little kid needs a

That little kid needs a spanking. How about that Ron has been paying into it his entire life? Lets compare how much social security Ron Paul has paid compared to everyone else at the table. that little shit was suggesting that RP is a hypocrite, yet he is about the only congressman who is not. Why didn't that jackass mention the pension fund that RP doesn't participate in or that he returns a portion of his budget to the treasury every year?


Then at the very end he says sorry lick a damn sissy! He ate that one and they all saw it. LOL

So question...

If Ron Paul is still in this thing to hopefully win it. Has he been looking into who would be his VP? And does anyone know who that might be? Wouldn't it need to be announced at the Tampa convention?

Sanctimonious Politico

LoL ... Ron handled the question like a true professional when he mentioned his use of other publicly funded programs like roads as well ... Remember, Ron, that these socialists don't want you to drive, either. Brilliant performance, Ron!

To Sanctimonious Politico: An OBJECTIVE look at the consequences of SS (poverty) and the state of roads throughout the US SHOULD, if you were HONEST, lead you to seriously consider VIABLE, i.e. market, solutions to these problems instead of government-funded and government-perpetuated ones. Ron simply promotes the former, i.e. market oriented solutions. Maybe, the WHOLE country might then have roads like Nashville in 1990 instead of patched potholes. Even better, WITHOUT governmental intervention in markets, roads probably wouldn't even be needed as we'd be FLYING cars.

Best interview of the season

Despite the women on the panel who came across as schoolgirls.

Dr. Paul really spelled out his positions well.

I don't think so. I thought

I don't think so. I thought the women were better than the men. They were also more respectful.

I Would Too

If I was in Ron's presence, I'd act like a silly schoolgirl too!


Ron Paul: "I don't want to end the Fed tomorrow, what I wanna do is have competition with the Fed and let the Fed self-destruct."

That was awesome. Got me even more giddy!

"I still pay social security

...I pay more into it than i get out"......yeah douchebag...what now. Maybe you should talk about how Dr. Paul refuses the congressional pension.

Hey is still paying more into

Hey is still paying more into social security then he gets paid out. There is nothing wrong with trying to recover some of your stolen money.

Yes, because opting out of

Yes, because opting out of $1,200 a month is going to save social security. What kind of example would that even be to young people? Yes, in order to make this screwed up system work, I want you all to pay into it your entire life, but then reject the benefits when you are in your late 70's and about to retire.

No, the system doesn't work. Allow us to opt out please.

Great interview btw Dr. Paul.

Still In Awe Of This Great Man...What A Leader!

There is no one better on Gods green earth than Ron Paul..No One! I loved it when he looked right into the camera while talking to barnacle.

I predict the Paul brigades will surprise and stun the GOP in Tampa.. The theme of the event will be individual liberty for each and everyone of us....BELIEVE IT!

I love it!

Barnacle....never heard that one before. How fitting!
