Well, I don't want more laws...but that one is damn tempting!

We should present a bill..

that says any time countries declare war on each other, the presidents/leaders/prime ministers need to go fight in a ring. We will see if Obama or Romney have the balls to do that!


If the war declarers (people who make the orders to send troops into foreign nations) were required to send a family member into battle, maybe they would think a little deeper about whether it is worth it.

Great speech

Nice suit

How did the vote turn out?

edit, I got it; The vote was 421-6 Wednesday. The Senate is expected to back the legislation later this week and send it to President Barack Obama for his signature.

Someone needs to put persian subtitles for Iranians

Spoken like a true statesman and a doctor.

Gosh, after Dr. Ron Paul & Dennis Kucinich depart from Congress will there be ANYBODY left worth listening?

Yes, Justin Amash, The great congressman from Michigan

We need alot more, but Justin is the real deal...


don't PEOPLE WAKE UP? Before I started following Ron Paul and reading REAL history, I admit I didn't pay attention and didn't really care that we were going around the world punking all the "evil doers". But even then, I knew what we were doing was wrong. Now, after 9/11, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and Syria it just baffles me how ANYONE can not see though all the lies. There is only 1 country that is a threat to other nations and unfortunantly it's my country. HOW DARE the bastards in Washington destroy the good name of America by continuing to brutalize other nations and their people. HOW DARE they do this crap in MY name!

Each American should be sent a bill every month to pay for the militarism both here and abroad. If someone wants to keep agressing against foreign nations that are no threat to us and if people are so scared of "terrorists" here at home, they can pay the bill. If you think it's illegal, immoral, and fiscally irresponsible to keep up our insane foreign policy and if you think the DHS, TSA, and the Government is the biggest threat we face here at home...WE SHOULD NOT BE FORCED TO FUND THIS B U L L S H I T!

IN MY VIEW DR PAUL IS THE GREATEST AMERICAN EVER! I know that may sound like a stretch but NO ONE in the histroy of this country has stood up to such a massive combination of money power and military might.


It never ceases to amaze me

It never ceases to amaze me how I will get half way through a comment (or post) that brings a lump in my throat, and I look to the top and see who posted and find go213mph in red...again...

keep tellin' the truth, man...keep telli'n the truth...

Thanks for the kind words Libertybelle :)

When I see Dr Paul speaking, especially in clips like the one posted above, it just makes me want to go to the ends of the earth for that man. At his age to be continuing to fight so hard to spread the message of liberty is proof that what he is doing is completely selfless.

I've learned so much from President Paul. I have a 21 year old daughter and I'm doing all I can to spread the message of liberty and freedom for her and future generations...All because of Ron Paul.

I've never admired anyone like I do Dr Ron Paul. He's my hero. The things I post and the comments I make are based largely on the teachings, books, and suggestions of Dr Paul. Regardless of what happens next month...RP WILL be MY President. President Paul!

You're Welcome!

He is so worthy of our admiration. Like you, I can think of very few that have so inspired me!

9/11 Truth.

he's kind of getting better

he's kind of getting better at his speech giving lately.. i know he admitted he wished he was a better speaker.. his message is so strong it'd be good if he's brushing up his skills before the convention

Ron Paul has ALWAYS been a very powerful and effective speaker

His speeches are so focused, concise and clear. He makes that look easy, but writers and english students know -it is not always easy. Ron Paul can speak in front of a crowd for 45 minutes w/o notes. Most congressmen have to read what is written for them. And the "presumed" nominee has to use a teleprompter. How fake.

I will never tire

of Ron Paul's moral logic. He will be missed on the House floor.

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.
Ron Paul - The Revolution

Setting a good example is a far better way to spread ideals than through force of arms. Ron Paul

Ron Pauls speech laid the

Ron Pauls speech laid the facts and yet this bill will pass congress.

For over 60 years America has been invading/attacking Iran. The "obsession" that Dr Paul references is out of control.

Great & Powerfull speech
