too bad

the congress kritters relection campaigns are all funded by the 70 billion dollars coming out of afghanistan

Do you all think the taliban have opium refining capabilites ? nope that's certain high level congress people that own and run dry cleaning companies , the chemicals those companies import are used in the heroin production process.

no one wanted to hear his "case" because of the corrupt powers that be.

colin powell hates himself to this very day and thats a fact.
go along to get along to get rich , that should be the american motto/tagline.

kucinich

You might disagree with Kucinich on abortion and health care. The proper role of government is to withdraw from the public sector and allow for the people to govern the market including allowing for competition in currency. Like RP kucinich is against war and understands that the Fed must be abolished or at least audited. No leader is perfect. Kucinich is the best we can get from the Democrats. He would be worth supporting if he was the only consistent anti-war/police state candidate. By the way how is abortion a Federal issue?

So Well Stated

The Iraqis deserve justice as much as you and I.

Hitler and the Nazis ordered the killing or millions of innocent people and they were hung.

Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, etc. ordered the killing of millions of innocent people and ..............

it's obvious that obama has continued where bush left off. and .............. it's obvious that romney will do the exactly same. and .............. it's obvious that both parties are the doupoly of the nwo, which will stop at nothing to perpetuate their goal(s).

and .............. it should be obvious to everyone by now that I will write-in Dr. Ron Paul. and .............. I hope that Dennis will do the same.

"It was obvious at the time"

so true, Dennis. so true.

Bummer...

I still wish we could have campaigned for an independent Paul/Kucinich ticket in 2012. I think we could have gotten more traction.

yes, a broad coalition

would have and would go a long way.

The Democrats

The Dems did to Kucinich what the Republicans did to Ron Paul during the 2008 democratic primaries. He, as well as Ron Paul, are the last honest men in congress. Kucinich may have many, many things we disagree with as Libertarians, but he is honest about them and doesn't talk like most other Dems, and has been consistent like Ron Paul. I think that is why Kucinich and Paul are friends, cause they are similar in personality, and have a common enemy, the war mongering, Goldman Sachs owned politicians.

Yes And They Are Steadfast On Three Issues

War, civil liberties, and the Federal Reserve. I have no problem understanding their friendship.

Kucinich may be a socialist when it comes to issues of social welfare, but he stands up for the Bill Of Rights like few others in U.S. government.

Kucinich

is heavily pro-abortion from what I heard from various Pastors.

I am surprised he is against war?

How can RP being an adamant pro-life OBGYN and having seen what he has seen even stand to talk to the guy who is 180 degrees from RP on the most important issue ...that is the question of life itself?

Perhaps RP's medical training allows for such discussions with Kucinich. It is to my understanding Dennis had a tough upbringing, I thought this might of influenced his views more positively.

Without life...there is no hope.

Donvino is a troll

How can you call yourself a Ron Paul supporter, Why are you trying to make this about the abortion issue. We have both sides here on this site. We also have heroes here who are both atheists (like Jesse Ventura) and god fearing people as well. We all want our freedom and we want freedom for every body in the world. That includes the people of Iraq the people of Syria, and the people in Iran too. Get the hell out of here.

This time don't give us Barabbus!

IDK

...gee RP seems to be very much pro-life.

If I am a troll for being pro-life, so be it. I will consider the moniker in this case a badge of honor.

Kucinich is for Obamacare and most likely tons of other unconstitutional regulations and then states publicly he is for the Constitution and openly displays it to argue his points? wtf?

I do not recall mentioning anything about the 'Darwin' thumping Ventura or his God-less-ness in this thread.

donvino

By This Reckoning...

You'd have to wonder how Dr. Paul could stand to talk to Murray Rothbard.

Rothbard: "Bipartisan: both parties acting in concert to put both of their hands in your pocket."

I don't know

I always thought the question of life was more important than economic and monetary theory..perhaps I was mistaken.

Many abortion and sterilization loving nations in history always seem to be the most militaristic. I wonder why?

donvino

Duped by whom, you ask?

I seem to remember Bibi's testimony before Congress in 2002 saying Iraq was most definitely pursuing a nuclear weapon and nuclear holocaust was imminent. Seems he was wrong about Iraq, now we must believe him about Iran.

I like congressman Kucinich

I like congressman Kucinich.

But the one thing I've always found amazing :

how come he still hasn't left his party and joined Ron Paul, by now ?!

It is just mind boggling to me almost every time he has something to say.

He is closer to Ron Paul than a Romney or Ryan could ever be.

Seriously.

A Paul/Kucinich Libertarian Ticket

It would have been unstoppable. Probably would have even turned Vermont & Montana into swing states.

It's Entirely Possible That...

...Al Qaeda and OBL had nothing to do w/ the war on terror either.

That sent me watching

That sent me watching different videos from 2002; Bush's praise of the House for the vote, Hillary's plea for the Senate to vote for it; a series of interviews with iraqi civilians a few weeks before the war...powerful stuff.

This made me cry.

Normal people, like you and me.

We killed these people.
We killed their women.
We killed their children.

Christ...what the f*** have we done?

How we could justify such a savage invasion?

I am literally sobbing right now thinking about all the children in this video smiling and laughing and wondering if any of them were killed. I can't live in this nation anymore. This is unjust.

Always Remember

Democrats like Kucinich are not our enemy.

Rothbard: "Bipartisan: both parties acting in concert to put both of their hands in your pocket."

Ron Paul is a "do" gooder

If you see an honorable person who needs help, it is within your means and you choose to help, then by all means give a helping hand.

Dennis, on the other hand, is a well meaning "do gooder". when he sees another human in need, he demands that everyone should disregard the person's previous actions and beliefs, forget about our primary obligations to ourselves and loved ones, and sacrifice to give the needy person aid.

Dennis is by far and away my favorite Democrat and his sincerity and honesty are beyond reproach== but his philosophy of forced charity is a contradiction of terms and flat out wrong.

I do not like to call those who disagree with me my enemy, but if the actions they pursue and the philosophy they promote deny my freedom and that of my children and children's children, then at the very least, they are not my friend.

I'll take my Liberty, it's not yours to give.
