Plus they are anti-semites! Boo to you, Crazy wRONg PAUL... you're a threat to our exceptionalism and national security, Mr. Unelectable. DERPMURICA! DERPMURICA! DERPMURICA!" -- A. Neocon

to hear a politician actually

to hear a politician actually speak the truth these days is just weird - but wonderful.

Sometimes I Think

When I hear Dr. Paul speak, sometimes I think he's the wisest of all others living today.

www.standardexcellence.net - Bringing you Oklahoma, Texas and national news & opinion that matters for liberty.

Thank you Congressman Paul for speaking for me.

Dr. Paul is one of the very few members of our government who speaks for what I believe.

The rest of them use our military might to KILL in my name.

All for the war-profiteers and their own selfish agandas.

Dr. Paul will be sadly missed in the halls of congress.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

Listen If You Have Not

....and then compare:


I did. Please do not let others destroy the legacy that some of us hope will be the blueprint for a more sane, humane and civil future.

Dr. Ron Paul has fought on the floor for what he believes. He will never stop fighting. It is the fight and how he fights it that defines the man.


Paul Supporters and The memo most of us did not receive

Please read: http://www.dailypaul.com/245368/paul-supporters-and-the-memo...

Kind of a parody on how we are supposed to conduct ourselves in social media.

Bump so we can discuss. This may help people focus as we get closer to Tampa.

Truth is treason in an empire of lies

President Paul!

see tagline...

"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

Bump for American Freedom!


Ron Paul...

‎"Ludwig Von Mises noted that government interventions always produce consequences at odds with their intended effect ... thus government typically seeks additional intervention in order to correct the perversities caused by earlier interventions." - The Revolution: A Manifesto

When the American spirit was in its youth, the language of America was different: Liberty, sir, was the primary object. - Patrick Henry


Next to Jesus and my parents, Ron Paul has influenced my life more than any other person.

Dr. Paul

speaks with irrefutable logic. I don't understand how anyone, in good conscience, could rebuke his speech or would even want to. And with his words, once again proves that the god king can bleed.

Hello, my name is Andrew Ryan and I'm here to ask you a question: is a man not entitled to the sweat of his brow?

Ron Paul is a Grunt's best friend.

and the only sane man between us and Armageddon.

Our government's empire building agenda reminds me of this verse from Isaiah 28:15

Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves.

Conscience does not exist if not exercised

Fantastic, powerful speech!

For Obama's sake

it would be a good political move for him and put him even more ahead of Romney.

I agree Obama

asking Ron to be his VP would put him way ahead of Mitt.

OHH- you meant withdrawing from Afghanatan - my bad.


I salute you, Ron Paul.

Dr. Paul, it is a privilege to hear you speak. You are a hero, an honorable man, who has stood alone against the tide of greed and corruption engulfing America and the world. All I know about economics and politics comes from you. I will never forget the lessons you have taught.

I think the entertainment

industry is missing a big bet here!
All they have to do is supply the troops with helmet cams any time they are going into battle. Pipe the feeds to everyone's tv so they all can enjoy the blood and gore along with the death and destruction.

"Oh LOOK that little b*st*rd blew into little pieces!" -
"Hey! Did you see that woman with the baby getting hit with 50 caliber rounds? GREAT!"

After all, shouldn't the American people get something back for all the money they are spending?

Thats in the works...

They are working out a public/private partnership with Hollywood where the government allocates a fraction of the military budget to Hollywood who in turn provides the American citizens with free real-time audio/video feed. The deal should be done by late summer. The service will be called Democracy LIVE! The following channels will be available:

Boots on the ground
Special Ops PLUS
Water Games
Birds Eye View
The Death Games
Enemy COMBATant!
SCARZ On Demand
Random Drone Cam - Iraq
Random Drone Cam - Afghan
Random Drone Cam - Libya
Random Drone Cam - iRan
Random Drone Cam - Syria
Random Drone Cam - USA EAST
Random Drone Cam - USA WEST

They will also have a few interactive channels where civilians can take control of drones. They will only have 1 channel at launch due to concerns over potential lawsuits if they release the service here in the US. Also the drone network over the USA will not be fully implemented until 2013, but they promised great things to come... Currently they are looking for beta testers in New Mexico where they are testing/surveilling on civilian cars. To ensure safety the US airforce is standing by.

The service is pending for interactive control in the Middle East at this time:

YouRDone - Middle East

And don't forget

the blood curteling screams from those who are not lucky enough to die that quick easy death they protray in movies.


I have heard a lot of damn good speeches from Dr. Paul... This one by far is the best one... Dr. Paul, thank you for never giving up... As a veteran, I completely agree with you and so do a lot of my veteran buddies.... Thank you sir

Our modern day Thomas

Our modern day Thomas Jefferson. He isn't the best orator, same as Mr. Jefferson, but he has one of the best brains in American history and is a fantastic writer.

And I second he should do a tour of the country during the election to instill some real ideas.

When these speeches are made

Does anyone even listen? The house floor looks empty most of the time, and after they finish speaking Congressmen hardly ever retort.

we do

He makes them for his constituents and for the public record. So, when people do care to look they will see someone/he did stand up and say something. Let it not be said we did nothing. Thank you to the gentleman from Texas.

I certainly agree with Dr.

I certainly agree with Dr. Paul, I just hope that those who heard it were actually listening. Time will tell.

The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men and women to not support Ron Paul!

save your breath Dr Paul

they wont listen to you.

It is us The People they will soon be listening to!

Ron Paul is the only one left with a soul in this body, ...

and it shows! What will these Congressmen do in January when they will not have Ron Paul to show them their hypocrisy?
