Jesus. God.

I scrolled down through to see if someone had the right answer

before posting this.

It sure does stink, can smell it from New Zealand,

but then, if you swim in the worlds largest sewage pond with the Military, oil, and government lobbyists,(puppet masters)and Big Banking, everything you do is bound to stink.
Sorry, wrong post replied to.


Judge Nap, Tom Woods, Peter Schiff are not running, probably ever

I vote Dr Paul

not because I think he will run, but because once he breaks free of congress, his message will be heard everywhere, and he will be free to speak his mind. I don't believe for a nano-second that Dr Paul will give up the fight for the American Citizens, to take back the US.
I truly believe that the best of Ron Paul is yet to come!

Nobody for President!

I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy much less those friends you listed.

When government has convinced everyone that it is our adversary and we have convinced each other that liberty is our friend, then we will have the President we deserve.

Free includes debt-free!

I still love that screen name :-)

Rand Paul / Justin Amash. r3VOLution.

Unless, of course, the good Doctor runs again :-)

Keep ignoring Tom Woods

ironic isnt it . . .

that a Ron Paul site is ignoring a liberty stalwart and Ron Paul supporter in favor of many other neocon names.

Kind of like the media did to RP himself huh?

I like Tom Woods

But he has said he's not interested in running for office.

Sums It Up Pretty Nicely...

You are the "Best Hope" for 2016

I absolutely mean that! Stop being a sheep.

Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

I've Got A Great Idea

...why don't we spend the next four years arguing about who would make the best President ...or which party to go to...instead of spreading the message of liberty.


Love your sarcsm, fonta! LOL

Apparently, that's what a few people on DP would like us to focus on and totally forget about the all important message. Are they just young and inexperienced or are they just trolls? The answer to that question, every time we see someone going off message to create diversion, is how all of us can help keep Patriots focused.

Don't lose patience, fonta. Educate the inexperienced and call out the trolls. This good fight is being waged on many fronts.

Absolutely Nonna

...And we have the PERFECT time for doing this! I find that very exciting and believe those who agree now have the opportunity and the tools to clean up the DP through education and "calling out" those who are transparently straying from the message. I even hope that this is in keeping with Michael's objectives with the site...ie work for liberty. If not, then it is a a big wide web with plenty of room for residency.

Many of us wish it was otherwise. Most of us wonder, given the system, just haw much a Ron Paul as President really could have done in the always unlikely chance that TPTB would have allowed him to be elected. And, while he WAS running for President sincerely...he KNEW he had to change minds if such a message COULD become President.

Now we work toward creating the atmosphere where that can happen or we all lie down in concert and fold or fight among ourselves providing fertile ground for any operative of any flavor.

My strong feeling is that the time had not come in 2008 or 2012...but the time HAS come now and the climate for such a paradigm shift is now. Every epic failure of government programs works with us and our message.

On the DP like minded people can join together RIGHT NOW, without the obvious roadblocks and perfect atmosphere for division that an election provides. Anyone here who is not for the message and can't stand behind anyone working for the message is against us not with us. Call them out. Educate them. Or, if need be silence them with logic and/or RP-like fatherly advice. Be Ron Paul-like in our demeanor may well be an important part of his legacy and our very salvation in building the base for a return to "we the people."


What's with all the neocons

What's with all the neocons on that poll?

Blessings )o(


Already working on it in my committee and so far his only competiton is Palin whose has people pouring into the committee to make sure we are not a factor.

Some people here don't want to hear that, Granger.

They block it out. Don't stop! We had better be aware of the ongoing games the controlled opposition is playing at every turn. So, don't stop. Don't ever stop!


Thank you. Heading off for Church and will be lifting you up in my prayers.

I am really dismayed at the lack of coverage about the Sandy rescue and clean up efforts. Could you post something about what is happening?

Thanks for the much needed prayers, my friend.

There are still some areas without power but, most have it now. As I commented elsewhere, the cleanup has been slow but, steady in NJ. A lot more food stores are open now and they have gotten fresh inventory. Rather than go into it on this thread or starting a new one, I would suggest using http://www.dailypaul.com/261546/ny-and-nj-are-at-the-breakin....

I did post another thread very recently that has links to two articles of interest. The first one is about a "new system of justice [that] is called Communitarian law and is the antithesis of Constitutional law as it champions community interests at the expense of individual liberties."

The second article is entitled, "The GOP: A post election soap opera" and is very much worth reading, too.

Check it out: http://www.dailypaul.com/262531/ten-easy-steps-to-steps-to-a...

None of the above.

The correct answer if the goal is to change the way our society is headed is number 6.

6. Global Thermonuclear War.

Can we please do this type of vote in the alternative vote?

It means nothing when you only get to vote on one. It means only slightly more when you only get to vote on five.

The alternative vote (one first choice, one second choice all the way out to the number of candidates) gives a perfect picture of what the people really want under the circumstances that they might need to compromise.


Arithmetic is not my strong suit. Can someone please explain how you can have a poll where the vote totals exceed 280%?


at some of the other names on this list. Sarah Palin? Santorum? Rick Perry? LOL

Rand Paul. In order to affect

Rand Paul. In order to affect change you first have to get elected which means you can't be viewed as some kind of radical by the sheeple and you can not be an outcast in your own party. Rand has positioned himself so he can be a real contender in 2016.
Ron Paul will be 80 years old. The man deserves some years of retirement. He can still give speeches and promote the ideas he believes in whenever he wants to.

ageist statement

My guess is Ron Paul will be ready and able, and pick Gary Johnson as his veep.

GJ or Mitt Romney. But that's not going to happen.
