WOW! THANK YOU FOR THIS VIDEO!!!

This is a GREAT video. Keep up the good work for LIBERTY!!

Good video, except...

...for the message of discrediting two proven warriors for Liberty.

Other than that one small detail, great video.

Seriously, keep making the videos (for Liberty) but just think through your criticism better than the average KKK member who vilifies anybody who doesn't think just like himself.

The Pharisees of Jesus' day had some kind words for those who strayed from their definition of what was right. What? Heal people on the Sabbath Day? How dare you...you heretic!

"Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees" is a warning that applies here, to those who would set themselves up as a light. Let's stay humble and appreciative of those soldiers who fight the good fight.

"It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a rEVOLution before tomorrow morning." - Henry Ford

Now that's an interesting concept

I didn't know you could still be a "proven warrior for Liberty" while you turn your back on Liberty.

Listen, I don't care if you live 99 years of your life, fighting for liberty. If, on the last year or day of your life, you turn your back on what you have fought for, according to the Scriptures anyway, you will have undone everything you have built.

Wake up people! Rand, Mack and Ryan are liberty trashers. NDAA, PATRIOT ACT, wall St Bailouts, and MORE WARS, NORE money printing.....etc, etc.

That, whether you like it or not, is a sell out. I don't care if it is Jefferson, Madison...anyone who turns his back on FREEDOM and casts his vote for bondage, is an ENEMY. Period.

Seems like

the filmmaker said it like it is. Ron Paul was tolerant and allowed others their choices, but he never wavered from his own principles for any reason. He was consistently true to the constitution. He did not endorse anyone who did not adhere to the principles of the constitution upon which this country is founded.

Rand Paul, Paul Ryan, and Richard Mack have endorsed an unprincipled Romney, and their endorsement creates confusion, because it makes Romney look good. In truth Romney is as dangerous as Obama and will follow the same agenda, and worse!

I guess in a life and death matter you might compromise your principles. But if the reason is POLITICS, then NO WAY can it be justified.

Reasons not to compromise #101 and 102

After the RNC treatment of the Paul delegates. And the RNC rules fiasco affecting not only the Liberty people but even standard tea party types, I don't see how anyone can vote for Romney let alone endorse him with a straight face.

And for the the pro-lifers among us consider

http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/the_conversi...

It is time line of Romney's twists and turns on this issue.

Vickie

About compromise.

I would compromise if the life of someone I love is threatened. Would not do it for profit, fame, and certainly not for politics.

This started when Rand ran

This started when Rand ran for office.... He promised the people of his District that he would support the Republican that would be Nominated in 2012.

That was his mistake.... a blind promise.... He felt he would not get elected if he would not pledge to do so. (right or wrong he did it).

If this is such an issue now it should have been the day he made that promise. If Ron Paul won we would have no problem with Rand's promise.

Interesting to think about how it all could have and in the end just how it did play out. I'm going to imagine no one wanted Ron to win more than Rand.

Ironic Sheriff mack once refused to give out tickets...

- as he considered it unconstitutional. Now he supports a man who gets such a kick out of abusing power he dressed up as a cop and pulled people over whilst at college...

This film maker uses a low

This film maker uses a low and vile form of persuasion to try to coerce people to think his way, by ridiculing two patriots (Mack and Rand) who have chosen a different strategy from what he thinks is right. Name calling, ridiculing, is a low class, juvenile way of debating. You're trying to cause people to think less of two champions of Liberty by calling them "enemies."

Ron Paul doesn't name call. He sticks to principles. Surely this example of Ron's has not escaped your attention?

So Mack and Rand Paul have chosen a different strategy from you. Is that evil?

Do you REALLY think their goal is different from yours or other "patriots"? I'll assume you care about Liberty. I'll assume you have good intentions. Why not assume good about Rand and Richard?

The shirtless kid in the video (your son), should he expect such intolerance from his Daddy as soon as he ventures off his Daddy's path of what the Dad thinks is the best WAY to do things, or heaven forbid, if the son decides to adopt different values than his father. What would the father do? What would your intolerance dictate that you do?

Think about your gross intolerance. "For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again" (Matthew 7).

I think it's much wiser to be inclusive of folks. Ron Paul says Liberty is for everybody, Dems, Repubs, sinners, saints, Independents, white, black, smart, dumb, tall, short, etc. You apparently disagree in that you want to call verifiable patriots "enemies of the Constitution".

Perhaps your tent might be a little small, ever think of that?

But nice video. I was impressed with it (except for the main message of arrogantly attacking Mack and Rand because they are employing a different strategy from you), but offer my humble feedback for your consideration.

I suggest you apologize. That would be the right, humble thing to do.

"It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a rEVOLution before tomorrow morning." - Henry Ford

It isn't a juvenile way of debating

...it's called humor, and it is very effective sometimes. You should try it.

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

-C. S. Lewis

This wasn't humor.

What are you talking about?

Where was the attempt at humor in calling two notable patriots "enemies of the Constitution"?

This wasn't humor, but a serious attack.

"It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a rEVOLution before tomorrow morning." - Henry Ford

sad about Mack--

verdict still out on Rand (though I admit keen disappointment with him at times)--

Ryan?

He's not in the same game as the other two--

for Mack and Rand there is, still, maybe, hope--

for Ryan; he's been stamped and mailed--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Play Politics Who? Rand Paul?

His Dad NEVER played politics. Never succumed to constituent pressure or party loyalty. No Senator I knew Ron Paul and You are no Ron Paul. This is a learning game but you would think he learned from his father. I was born in 1950 and the word Democracy has been pounded into my head since I was a child. We need to make our children and Grandchildren know the difference between a democracy and a republic. That is the root of the problem. The dumbing down of Americans is not new it was here in the 50's. I am a victim of it as well.

Outstanding work Brian!

Outstanding work Brian!

song question

who sings that song and what is its name... more important where can i find it.

Zero Constitutional tolerance in voting.

If you want change we need to never support any candidate unless the candidate is 100% Constitutional. Issues are important, but being 100% Constitutional is manditory. Then we will be a political force and the sheep will follow.

They should be married to the Constitution!

If I was faithful to my wife 99% of the time and only cheated on her once... She would dump my sorry ass.

Right on, what a great video

How you live your life is a matter of principles. Look at the role models we have today to look up to!

douche bag

stupid attitude,not the right way to talk and act if you want to be taken seriously.

Say's the guy who called him a...

"Douche bag" no hard feelings just pointing out that it seems hypocritical...

We have to throw Mack and Rand in with Romney now

The liberty movement cannot afford to trust anyone that even shows one shred of a lack of principle or there is no way we will EVER de-centralize the federal government. It's just that simple. If you portray ANY lack of integrity you have to be gone. In praxeology there is one very clear and repeating theme and that is that power corrupts, period. We have to be represented by individuals that will maintain their allegiance to giving the powers, which they inherit through election, back to the individual because to deny yourself power is one of the most rare and selfless acts in all of recorded human history. If an individual is so weak that he/she cannot resist giving into endorsing a candidate like Romney when the establishment ramps up pressure on them then there is no way that we can count on that individual when it matters.

We have to use the republican primary as a corruption litmus test. One of the best things that came out of this election is the fact that we now know exactly what side anyone that ever spoke about liberty and the constitution in the last few years is on, and the sides are: those who endorsed Ron Paul and everyone else. That's a huge tool for us.

I think we need to be vigilant.

But think we need to take into account that Rand maybe holding his nose, trying to make the future GOP platform closer to his Tea party stand point. He's opposed to the TSA opposed to the NDA, opposed to the Fed he's with us on so much which is why I doubt he supports Romney at all inside. And is just playing politics trying to further his ideas to get them into the GOP mainstream. It's different than if he were to "vote against his principles, to preserve them" I don't think he'd do that. I think he see's the impossibility of that

If he succeeds in doing so it would be a lot easier for us to become the GOP, as the GOP wouldn't be trying to keep us the liberty moment out...

Shamus, I was so struck by your post that...

I copied and pasted it into a word document.

If everyone truly believed what you wrote, we could turn this country around TOMORROW. And I don't mean just spouting liberty quotes, but truly espousing what you have clearly laid out.

I don't know the author of the quote or even the exact quote itself, but it goes something like, "give me five good men who care nothing for bribery, trickery, prestige or personal power but, whose only intent is to see to it that justice be done, honor be exalted and truth be told, and I shall shake the world to its very core."

Mack and Rand Paul have, in reality, diluted the pure water of liberty, by giving a nod to indefinite imprisonment of my family and yours. I care not the length of that man's service if, at the end of the trail he turns to those who follow and says "I NOW support the enemy of your rights and freedoms.

Wake up TRUE PATRIOTS! The REVOLUTION is just getting started!!

Peace in PRINCIPLE...always!

email me Shamus. I want to learn more from you.

When injustice becomes Law; Revolution becomes DUTY!!

Rand Paul and Sheriff Mack deserve critisism

For their careless endorsements. But, lumping them in with Obama, Romney, and Ryan as violators of our Constitution is unfair.

Yes, the endorsements are sickening, but Paul and Mack are not even close to Obama, Romney and Ryan. They are clearly on our side, even if they made the mistake of endorsing Romney.

While an endorsement does tarnish their character, it doesn't wipe out everything else they've done in defense of our Constitution.

I'm torn between liking the video and questioning it's overall message.

I want to encourage you to please think about what you said,

You said, "Paul and Mack are not even close to Obama, Romney and Ryan." They SUPPORT Obama, Romney and Ryan. The only difference between Romney and Obama is that, one puppet is on one hand and the other is one another hand. But the same master controls them. The same financial backers back them. Do you think that there is no reason for that. Do you think Goldman sacks is pumping money into Romney's campaign because they think he's a good guy?

By supporting Romney, Mack supports, NDAA 2012 (American Imprisonment Act), the Patriot Act (strip the 4th amendment act), Bailouts (Plunder the Rest of American's Hard-Earned Wage Act), MORE WARS, etc. etc. etc.

Do you really think you can have a man support a Freedom-taking, Right-trampling, banker-backed Pawn in a moment of carelessness? That would be like me explaining to my wife why I didn't stop the intruder from raping her by saying, well honey I thought it best to just support him at the time. I guess I was just being careless. NO NO NO!!! I, without hesitation, would lay my life down for her. Why? Because PROTECTION of my family is a FIRE that NEVER GOES OUT!!!

It is the same with freedom. When are we going to wake up and call a spade a spade. Look, I didn't make Mack and Rand Paul say what they said. They said it on their own. I'm not going to call a spade a diamond because someone promises me a Ferrari and a Condo in Malibu. A spade is a spade. Period.

Mack and Paul SOLD out! And without repentance, there is no return.

Please think about it. We are solders for TRUTH. I do not want Rand or Mack in my foxhole. They are ENEMIES!!

Peace on Principle...always!

When injustice becomes Law; Revolution becomes DUTY!!

I'm guessing you are young and haven't thought things through.

Am I right?

Listen, please try to listen. The ONLY criticism this film maker and you have of Mack/Rand is that they endorsed Romney.

Never mind the LIFETIME of service in defending the Constitution and standing by Ron Paul, and DOING (I'm screaming this word so you can hear me) their patriotic duty of supporting Liberty.

What can you say about your own service???????????????????????????????

You've probably done 1/1000 of what they've done. It's very hard for me to be respectful to you, but I'm trying very hard.

I pray for folks who are throwing away the baby with the dirty bath water. Is that what the FIRE inside you says to do about your family? The shirtless kid in the video, should he expect such intolerance from his Daddy as soon as he ventures off his Daddy's path of what the Dad thinks is the best WAY to do things, or heaven forbid, if the son decides to adopt different values than his father. What would the father do? What would your intolerance dictate that you do? Think about your gross intolerance. "For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again" (Matthew 7). Speaking of PRINCIPLES, apply that one to YOURSELF. And perhaps start repenting.

You really think that Rand/Richard would not agree with your analogy of stopping the rapist? You say you'd "lay down your life," well they have LIVED their lives trying to protect YOUR Liberty.

Where is your gratitude?

It's quite simple, their thinking. Is it really rocket science?

Look, I understand what you are saying, I'm not happy about those endorsements either. I do not agree. But have you thought about their MOTIVE?

What possibly might be their motive?

You brand these two patriots as "enemies of the Constitution". LOL. Based on an endorsement? Are you nuts? Or has youth not allowed you to see yet? "Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears, hear ye not?" (Mark 8:18).

Answer me this: what do you think their motive might be? If they are so-called "enemies", then you MUST answer they are trying to destroy our Constitution, our Liberty. Is that what you really think?

I hope you have the maturity to sit back and think honestly what their motives might be. BY THEIR FRUITS YE SHALL KNOW THEM. Look at their damn records, young Padowan, to get an idea of their virtue, or what makes them tick.

Are they perfect? No. Are you? No - I hope is your answer.

Why must people be an enemy if they don't think exactly like you?

This film maker and people like you are using a low and vile form of persuasion to try to coerce people to think YOUR way, if YOU THINK ABOUT IT (that's right, THINK), by ridiculing two patriots who have chosen a different strategy from what you think is right. Name calling, ridiculing, is a low class, juvenile way of debating. You're trying to cause people to think less of two champions of Liberty by calling them enemies.

Ron Paul doesn't name call. He sticks to principles. These two patriots embrace the same principles, which their life attests to.

So they have chosen a different strategy from you.

Do you REALLY think their goal is different from yours or other "patriots"? I assume you're not a troll, and care about Liberty. I'll assume you have good intentions. Why not assume good about Rand and Richard?

If you do that, then the debate becomes, "What is the best strategy?". And maybe, "Is it okay to have multiple strategies to accomplish the same goal?" Perhaps there's more than one way to get to the top of Mt. Fuji, as the Japanese like to say.

If you say there's only one strategy, don't you think that could be a little arrogant?

"Peace on Principle...always."

That's what you say, but then in your very post you make war on patriots who HAVE A TRACK RECORD of a life based on principle.

"It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a rEVOLution before tomorrow morning." - Henry Ford

Rand Paul and Sheriff Mack are your enemies?

Then you don't have very many allies. With enemies like yours, you don't need any friends.

I see Rand Paul as more of an undercover asset, fighting from the inside. He doesn't endorse anything Romney does, he just said he endorses him in order to gain advantage. When a spy doesn't pretend to go along with those he's actually against, he is realized and killed, or at a minimum never given any trust or responsibility that would matter.

Does it mean, if you endorse

Does it mean, if you endorse those who violate the constitution, that you too violate the consitution by proxy? Is it not the same as being an accessory to a crime?

I did not rape her (Lady Liberty) I just gave the guy who did a ride to her house when I knew what he intended to do.

If my need to be RIGHT is greater than my desire for TRUTH, then I will not recognize it when it arrives ~ Libertybelle

Your reasoning

makes sense to me, Libertybelle. In fact you are right on. Endorsing a CORRUPT man makes you an ACCOMPLICE to what he does in the future.

Ron Paul is unfailingly honest. You always know where you stand with him. And that is how it should be. Honest. Straight forward.

Compromise has eroded the foundations of America. What is left is a corrupt greedy system run by the wealthy elite. What a tangled web of deceit!

Just be honest! And avoid endorsing corrupt people!

Endorsing someone never makes one an accomplice to crime

If that were the case, Ron Paul would be a criminal for endorsing Ronald Reagan.

Think about it...
