Click through Drudge link to get him in the habit of covering Ron again: www.drudgereport.com

Washington Times: Rep. Ron Paul, whose maverick presidential bids shook the GOP, said in the wake of this week's elections that the country has already veered over the fiscal cliff and he sees no chance of righting ship in a country where too many people are dependent on government.

"We're so far gone. We're over the cliff," the Texas Republican told Bloomberg Television's "In the Loop" program. "We cannot get enough people in Congress in the next 5-10 years who will do wise things." The video can be seen at http://www.bloomberg.com/video/ron-paul-on-fiscal-cliff-and-....

Mr. Paul, who is retiring after 12 terms in the House, said voters on Tuesday rejected Mitt Romney because he had opposed the government bailout of General Motors and Chrysler.

"The people in the Midwest voted against him: 'Oh, we have to be taken care of!' So that vote was sort of like what we are laughing at in Greece," Mr. Paul said.

I stopped reading drudge since

the day I realized that he was following the same pattern as the talk radio mouths. Ignoring the liberty movement by only running articles that excluded mentioning our existence. Ignoring Ron Paul's victories and true primary numbers that didn't reflect what the RNC wanted, etc. not reporting vote fraud of the gop, etc. Since about 1997, I had drudge as a home page and would look at it constantly. It was tough to stop going there, but I changed my habit and news sources. I don't miss it any more and am much more informed. It is just another "establishment only" news source and a continuum of the rediculous color sports. (red vs blue) Drudge report ignores most of what I've learned over the past several years. I won't be going back there again.

The media talks as if the two

The media talks as if the two major parties are diametrically opposed and will find a way to perfectly meet in the middle for the good of all. But the reality is it's a bunch of socialists arguing with communists. All they're arguing about is what govt should take control of next.

Just what I was thinking

Everything he said there has been what I've been thinking. Thank you, Ron Paul!

Could someone clarify a U S "fiscal cliff"?

What does that look like? What does that mean?

When the media says it they mean a legislative deadline after

which automatic spending cuts would happen that they declare dire. When Ron Paul says it he means past a tipping point of no return when there aren't enough soon enough waking up to our financial predicament to actually do something about it while it can be done.

Integrity means having to say things that people don't want to hear & especially to say things that the regime doesnt want to hear -RonPaul

I knew he wasn't done yet!

I knew he wasn't done yet! He's just getting started!

I think Ron Paul is preparing an epic "Good Bye Congress" speech

Should be plenty of red meat and wisdom in there for those of us who are still paying attention.

Yes At A Recent Speech He Acknowledged That He Has Been

Should be a great one.

Liberal media says we need to

Liberal media says we need to move further toward the middle to appeal to the changing demographics. Why not just become democrats?
We need not pander to the changing demography. We need to teach them. Education is the key and Liberty is the teacher.

celebrating the election

"They closed Market and Castro street and throngs came out.
Two thousand dead without trial, or even indictment, and they come out.
Bradley Manning still rotting, and they come out.
Every email and phone call stored for retrieval for seven years, and they come out.
Medical marijuana clinics still raided , and they come out reveling.
Sixteen trillion in debt, and 22 percent unemployment, and they come out.

"I can understand relief that Mittens lost, but happiness.
Very disturbing.
I wonder if there were similar throngs in Berlin and Dusseldorf after the socialist victories in the early twenties?"
–Phil Berg

Go away...

and stay there!

When Fascism goes to sleep, it checks under the bed for Ron Paul!

There is Something That Can Be Done

RP accurately observed that nothing can be done to stop falling over the fiscal cliff.

In any case, the most valuable thing that can be done at this point is to educate minds. It is time to start making everyone feel guilty for their sheeple tendencies. As George Wallace used to say "It is time to stop pussyfooting around". Preachers, parents, and liberty seekers need to teach everyone in their circle the following as it applies to government...

Thou Shalt Not Steal.

Thou Shalt Not Murder.

Everyone must be a good steward of the gifts that were bestowed on them.

Government is never exempt from the morality that is required of individuals.

George Wallace also said

All those years ago, "There's not a dime's worth of difference between the two parties."

Thank you

Live Exodus 20. Thou shall not covet other's land, property..
Thou shall not bear false witness. America has lost God, the very foundations of her beginnings. Reject 501 c 3, reject pledges to Isreal, honor the oath of your offices. This is the only way out in this world. Resistance to tyranny is obedience to God. No one said that would be easy, but this life is a test. This country has lost it's moral compass. Be careful what you approve of for others - drones will come here too. Latest poll (probably fake): 1/3 of Americans apporove of body cavity searches in order to fly. Oh! It might be real - they might be thinking a dentist will be there to give them some free services.

So many people still say

and expect it, "God Bless America" and I say, why should He, have you looked at America lately? Rather, II Chronicles 7:14, "..my people who are called by my Name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land." This is my belief.

We are in another war for our Independence.



We must be

in free fall over that cliff. We will soon hit the bottom.

Drudge blew it...

...by becoming the "Romney Report" last spring and shutting Ron Paul out. After Tuesday's debacle, he has a lot to make up for.

get into the comments

on the washington times article through the drudge link it's getting lively

Whoops! I forgot, I am kicked

Whoops! I forgot, I am kicked off of the Washington times.


Nice. I want my "kicked off the Washington times Badge" too.

I love a lively comments

I love a lively comments section!

Economics isn't very

Economics isn't very complicated, and its scary how out of touch these people are... If you spend more than you bring in, then you will run out of money... If you spend money you don't have, then you will be in debt! THERE'S NO WAY AROUND IT!

And farther down, another indication that this country is

too far gone:
Poll: Nearly One Third Of Americans Would Accept ‘TSA Body Cavity Search’ in Order to Fly


What the hell happened?

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

Help me understand

Why did Ron Paul say the Romeny did not support the bail out of GM? Didn't Romney say he supported it? and flip flopped as usual?

The Headline For Romney's Op-Ed Was

"Let Detroit Go Bankrupt."

So even though Romney favored the federal government backstopping the bankruptcy to keep GM from going under, the headline (which he didn't write) dogged him.

Dr. Paul's point was that the one thing that Romney was at least halfway right about--opposing a full-fledged bailout--is what dogged him in the election -- a very bad sign for the country.

I see

When something is in writing it is easier to read it wrong and not get the point of certain statements. Thanks for clarifying
