An Ordinary Man Who Went To Congress To Speak The Truth

Growing up in the 50's and 60's, there were many more men and women who were brave, wholesome. We have lost our nobility and our modesty.

We need to restore our nation while we can. Time is running out on america.

The brave must come forth and speak to one another in away that awakens the soul..

Just look at just what only one man has done. Imagine a nation of Ron Paul's..

Just imagine..


"A tireless minority, keen on setting brush fires in the minds of man" ~ Samuel Adams, Founder of the Sons of Liberty

Ron Paul : The father of the second great american rEVOLution


Nobody but Ron Paul for president!
Nobody speaks the truth and explains the truth and puts the pieces of the puzzle together like this guy, and nobody in our government cares more about the truth than Ron Paul...NOBODY!

" In Thee O Lord do I put my trust " ~ Psalm 31:1~

Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul, giving the Congressional House Floor

legitimacy, again, and again, and again, and again x X^nth power.

hey wait a minute... is that actually a 'good' thing?

'stop' it Dr. Paul! lol

hm. why does this septuagenarian TX country doc make so much sense?

I wonder... .o)

Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul WILL be the POTUS come Jan 2013, dang it!

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


there's heroes and there's legends. Heroes get remembered, but legends never die.

Paul “lawn gnome” Krugman

Paul “lawn gnome” Krugman is one of those “geniuses” that truly believes a great world war would solve all our economic problems. Of course he wants you to do all the fighting and dying to prove him right. I think this is Obama's way of getting into Iran because a war is his only hope he has of saving his one term bacon. As usual payoffs and graft will win over the down to earth logic and wisdom of Ron Paul. We are toast.

The only true statesman of our times.

Honored to be among his supporters.
He stands tall in the midst of his contemporaries.

Doesn't it make you happy to know that

that's our man - not only speaking sense but coming from a positive place: a desire for peace.

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
~ John Muir

words of wisdom. future

words of wisdom.

future generations will hear these words and maybe better understand why things are as they are

Both sides have logic, but Ron Paul wins.

Our government has its own logic for wars.
- Endless wars in stagnated corporatism is another venue of employment. Monopolies, military brass, government clerks, subcontractors and their trade unions just LOVE it.
- Supporting our empire via threats of war ensures that our foreign friends and foes will take our paper money as gold.
- Executive power, Pentagon & CIA experience power rash designing something that produces tangible results (rather than printing welfare checks and giving subsidies.)

Now, in addition to morality, Ron Paul has logic too:
- Our wars do not help local warring parties, since our goal is domination.
- We have no money, we are in deep debt.
- Growing government & Pentagon further distorts capital allocation & economy.

There are two prime reasons government is trying so hard to go

to war with Syria.

First, if poll results are anything like they were in Libya, Obama's popularity will skyrocket just in time for the November elections.

Second, there are a lot of madatory tax increases and massive military cuts of some $500 billion scheduled to start on January 1, 2013. These were contingency moves only to be put into effect as a last resort and various trade group (incuding those you mention) are looking for ANY EXCUSE to get out of them. The logic is "How can we cut back as required with a brand new war?"

THESE are the reasons.

Washington doesn't give a damn about humanitarian ANYTHING or especially Syrian peasants.

Grand Slam!

Speech from the Congressional Home Run Slugger...

"I, __________, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic."


There is no duration defined in the Oath


Thank you Dr. Paul for speaking up for peace.

Instead of a standing ovation for that position,

his speech fell on deaf ears in that room.

I don't think there is ever anybody there

There seems to be about six people there whenever a congressman talks, just the ones who are required to

Currently consuming: Gatto: "Underground history of education..", FDR; Wii U; NEP Football

And these guys & women get paid and

get top of the line health care at our expense to do what? Line their pockets with lobbiest money and vote against the will of the people they were supposedly elected to represent? Not listen to reason, much less the people, and go and live the high life with their masters instead of doing their jobs? Nice work, if you can get it and be able to live with yourself. Unfortunately, they can.

Ron Paul speaking for peace is a thing of beauty!
No one comes close to RP.
Stay out of other countries - mind our own business.
Can we steal the nomination somehow? Can we take it by force just as the GOP has stolen from us and taken away from us?

I trust President Paul as a Leader.

Nonetheless, the leadership in Syria has committed gross crimes against Syria citizens individual and property rights.

I would suggest that President Paul call the shots on how to handle the Syrian issue as well as Iran and all the Foreign Affairs which involved the United States.

fearless brave joyful peaceful loving grateful, compassionate

What is freedom? Freedom is the right to choose; the right to create for
yourself the alternative of choice. Without the responsibility and exercise
of choice a man is not a man but a member, an instrument, a thing.

The rebels are financed and armed

by US-NATO. It is all part of the NWO agenda to destabilize the Middle East, to gain control of the governments and their rich oil reserves. China is also among those to be De-stabilized in the (near?)future

You need to ask yourself who

You need to ask yourself who the rebels are.
