As Usual

This man makes me remember why I am here on Daily PAUL!!!!!!!!

If only the world would wake up!

Then, the world would be a better place to live...

I really like the fact that

I really like the fact that five out of the six members of Congress who voted against sanctions on Iran were Republicans.

As Usual, Ron Paul Speaks The Truth

Spoken like a boss...love the spiffy new suit too...looking sharp Dr. Paul!

“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.”

O'Reilly vs Stossal

last night about Iran. O'Reilly showed a picture of Dr. Paul and played a tiny part of something he said about leaving Iran alone. Stossal told O'Reilly that wasn't fair not playing Paul's full comment and preceded to say why the Dr is correct. It went back and forth but of course O'Reilly knows it all and thinks the US should starve the Iranians into compliance.

Whoa! That was too much common sense!

Obsession, he called it. Never thought of it like that but that's what it is alright.

Speeches like this make me want to open my FB account back up.

Also, I wonder who Kucinich will be voting for?

This even more cements my

This even more cements my belief in Ron Paul or none at all in 2012.

God bless this man.

Awesome speech

What will we do without him (and Kucinich) in Congress?

He's the man.

There will be a descency

i apologize for the change of subject

But the sanctions came up in the environmental class I'm attending today. I tried to tell them that countries were still buying their oil and gave turkey as an example by trading for gold, but the instructor insisted that no one is buying. Could someone guide me in the correct direction with recent sources backing up the claim of who is really buying Iran's oil?

filter method

go to rt.com and presstv.com and debkafile.com and mclatchydc.com. these are all websites that cut through the bs. now of course each one has an agenda but i leave it up to you to "filter" for the truth. i read a lot of articles about india buying oil in gold. put gold gold and oil in the search boxes of these websites. sounds like your instructor is a tool

internet search

using the key words iran india gold will give you a plethora of facts to educate your instructor. Be prepared to receive a failing or poor grade unless you are really clever in how you deliver the truth!

ha...there is no pass or fail

It is more like a conference on a much smaller scale.

This GUY

Paul will move you to tears. He gets it.

It Just Clicked

When I was watching the video, it hit me like a ton of bricks. What threat does Iran developing nuclear energy pose to us? And what reason do we have to believe they would use it on us in the first place?

So thankful to Dr. Paul for inspiring us and teaching us. He is truly like a voice crying in the wilderness. Except instead of announcing the Messiah, he is more like Jeremiah announcing certain destruction.

Iran or Israel? Dr. Paul is Keeping it Real.

Dr. Paul is still my hero. As he said in his speech, we should be more concerned over countries that are a nuclear power, but refuse to join the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (AKA ISRAEL) than over a third world country like Iran that is not a threat to our national security. Let's be honest here, who is really a bigger threat to the peace of the Middle East and the world, Iran or a trigger happy nuclear Israel?

"To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize." Voltaire

Biggest threat is Israel with more than 300 nukes...

and I dare them to set one off--they won't; they use it like a shield and shoves us in front to take the bullet; they want us to take Iran out, to push the button and fire ours off. They have their paid Israeli operative/minions in Congress (follow/review how the large % of the Jewish Congressperson voted for the straight facts) pulling our finger back against the trigger. We are the sacrificial goat and I say this backed by the empirical voting data readily available for validation. To what end would a war with Iran bring the us/U.S.--NOTHING--ABSOLUTELY ZERO; in the whole wide world, Israel is the only benefactor at the cost of American lives, blood, money, liberty, and reputation.

I am thankful that Russia and China are against this insane itch and hope they continue to back sanity over Israel's bull. Isn't it ironic that these two communist countries' disagreement with our government is actually working to protect us from our sacrificial role?!!!

Congresspersons swore allegiance to this country--no other--The next time some schmuck (like Schumer, Libermann, Bloomberg, etc.) says "I'm for Israel" on his political stage remind him is on U.S. soil and he should be for NO OTHER COUNTRY than the United States of America!!!--After you remind him of his betrayal go vote for the other person to give him a taste of his own medicine and to hit home the POINT--U.S. government must SUPPORT THIS COUNTRY FIRST AT ALL TIMES!!!

I say: if you can't make it better, don't make it worst!

Agree!

Definitely! We can not serve two masters. This government needs to stop looking the other way when it comes to Israel and their illegal nukes. In a war with Iran, our men and women would be the ones on the front line, not Israel because we all know they are so special that their children don't deserve to die, but ours do.

"To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize." Voltaire

my thoughts exactly

Its crazy how the biggest proponents of bombing Iran have an illegal stash of nuclear weapons themselves, along wiith the most aggresive foreign policy second only to ours.

Thanks, Dr. Paul for standing up!

Ron Paul has a history of being very wary of–what he calls–the “inevitable consequences” of sanctions against nations. As far back as 1998, Congressman Paul opposed president Clinton’s Iraq Liberation Act (calling for sanctions on Iraq) predicting that it would lead to war.

Ron Paul

Is the only man with a plan who can stop Uncle Sam having a war with Iran.

Ron Paul once again proving

Ron Paul once again proving he's the boss. First he addresses congress, then he does an interview with CNBC, and then an interview with faux business, wow, the stamina of this man is icredible. That's why I don't understand why certain people are trying to shove Gary Johnson in our face when the Doctor is out in full force spreading the message of Liberty. Ron Paul 2012 and no one else!

Ron Paul 2012 !

Believe me, he may retire from congress, but he ain't goin' away...Don't forget, you can't be President AND a Rep at the same time anyway...The country cannot afford to lose a man of his stature, probably one of the GREATEST statesmen since the 'Founding Fathers'.

Hopefully people will wake up to the hapless Mitt and the incompentent and dangerous Obama, ARE YOU FREAKIN' KIDDING ME??? It reminds me of Dickens...'May I Please Have Another, Sir?', while getting a beating...

The word to remember is Perserverence...we ain't going anywhere either, the Ron Paul movement has already changed the paradigm and there's no going back now !

I wrote to Vanity Fair asking for...

and write up on Paul and to put him on their cover...

I encourage everyone to do this and to do this for other publications and talk shows too.

But for now, can EVERYONE on this site push this endeavor to flood Vanity Fair with thousands of requests for a Ron Paul cover feature?!

Use the below letter to Vanity Fair's editor to submit request for a Ron Paul cover feature...

I say: if you can't make it better, don't make it worst!

I am impressed

I hope the people and the congress get it. What else can be said about all these wars based on lies.

love it

classic Ron Paul.
a hero.

Why don't they declare war?

Blockades, sanctions, these are acts of war. Why doesn't the Congress just declare war? We can say that our interests are threatened because they don't have a central bank! They're not under the thumb of European Banksters. Like the crooks in Congress want them to be. And besides, our oil is under their sand.
We are run by a Congress full of pussys let's all get together (NATO)and gang up on somebody smaller than us! It's just ridiculous! I think we need to pass a law that all of the children or grandchildren of people in Congress need to be on the front line of any war they declare or any action like this they take, without exception.
I'm sure if we did peace would break out all over the world.
