My homeboy, Ron Paul,

was going ham! I love how he so quickly responded, "No to the second." ha! Stannis Baratheon approves.

I'll have me a cup of Honest

I'll have me a cup of Honest Ron, please: We need two parties. lol.

Ron Paul--

my friend in liberty.

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

Good one, on third parties!

NO to the second! Heh Heh

Honest Ron could EASILY RUN 2016! He mops the floor with anybody that tries to tell him he's wrong. Like as BOSS.

Do you think that America will be awake by 2016? I think there is a real chance. Hope to GOD, that we get yet, another chance.

Honest Ron 2016

In Liberty

If Romney gets in,

it will be hard to convince anyone to vote for another Republican option in 2016 vs. Romney, no matter how terrible Romney's presidency. I mean, look, Obama is still the Democratic option, even though he's not a legal citizen and even with his track record of ramming all those unconstitutional plans through AND not bringing our Troops home!

If Obama gets in 2012, they'll be a lot of Republican competition in 2016 - and by popular neo-cons, probably like Paul Ryan and Scott Walker and the infamous Rick Santorum.

Ron Paul may need to switch to running Independent towards the end of the Republican primaries. Stay with them to get the message out, and then switch so we can vote en-mass for him against the two-party (one-party) system. Do you think the Libertarians and Constitutional parties will join us to vote independent for Ron Paul?

Not-so-conservative facts about Romney & Republicans

My most fervent hope is that Ron Paul continues to be our senior statesman at large as a frequent guest on the liberal news shows. It doesn't seem that his commentary is welcome on the "conservative" talk shows. Perhaps that is because the good Doctor presents some very not-so-conservative facts about Romney and the Republican Party that conservative talk show hosts Levin, Hannity, O'Reilly, et al. don't want made public.

Dr.Paul makes the observation that in lieu of a third party, a second party is what is needed most.

It only takes one to KEEP AMERICANS FREE. Know your duties & rights as a juror. Stop the unconstitutional conviction of innocents in federal custody. The Fully Informed Jury CALL 1-800-TEL-JURY www.fija.org IMMEDIATELY if not sooner. It's that important.

I guess this was a popular post..

I noticed 217 up votes and 220 people signed in..

RP answered "No" to endorsing Romney as if he had the reflexes of a 20 year old!

Participate in America's future- Research Ron Paul- Truth will Prevail! You too, will be proud one day, to be able to say: "I was a Ron Paul supporter."

Loved it when I heard our good Dr. shooting that, in a 1/4 second ... BAM !

Thank you , Dr. Paul

How does a human justify voting for someone with lower moral standards than they hold for themselves?
"OK, God,m I know this guy would sell his mother for a few bucks, but he's better than the guy who has gay love affairs, right? So you understand if I turn over responsibility for my life to this bankster pimp, it was the best I could do..."
I don't see it happening this time, but we will ONLY get political reform when we abandon the current scam - participation is tacit approval. Boycott the rigged elections, refuse to acknowledge the unlawfully elected government, and then the people might see something change.

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

The lesser...

The lesser of two evils is still evil.

Freedom is my Worship Word!

they still think it is a game

miss the entire point---I would be excited about the future of the nation if he were our nominee.

That's the man I know and love

Consistently honest and right on the money.

"Will you support Rommney?" Give it a break, will ya?

Though I suppose Ron Paul does continue to make news standing out as an anomaly of integrity in a world submerged in political compromise.

He is a modern day Horatio at the bridge, fighting to preserve our liberty.

Ron Paul-mastered, as usual.

**sorry, couldn't help :P

Did you Hear the Guy Laughing in the Background?

Did you hear the guy in the background laughing at Ron's response to the endorsement question? They knew the answer they were going to get before they even asked him.

I love how they always phrase

I love how they always phrase that question "Are you ready to endorse Mitt Romney?" like it's some kind of inevitable conclusion and he just has to get prepared. Yeah right. XD

Whew, thank you for posting this

After the "debate" tonight it was nice to clean the palate with a little Ron Paul.

love it

that is what I miss and am going to miss when he leaves congress - hopefully he will continue to speak at various events. This is a great clip - thank you for posting. I loved every second.
Ron Paul is and always will be "the man".

Yes, he will continue to speak, and I think he will continue to

be interviewed just as now.


LOL it would be nice to have

LOL it would be nice to have a second party. The republcrats have done a horrible job.

Ha ha ha!

He wasn't even going to spend more than 2 seconds on that answer! F that, it is not important. Dispense of it! Let's talk about something meaningful!!!

"Why don't we get a SECOND party?!!!"

Once again the good Doctor speaks the truth about the one-party system in american politics.

"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 rejects Romney

The Real Thing rejects the puppet. Ron Paul has class. Romney is an ass.


Because An ass is a donkey, which symbolizes Democrats, LOL!

"Truth is Treason in an Empire that lies" - Ron Paul

Educate the masses, and win in the end.

Debbie's picture

Of course he bluntly refuses to back him!

"What we need is a second party." Hahaha!! How true!
