Ron Paul wouldn't accept it.

For the same reason he voted no on giving a medal to Mother Teresa.

We are almost there

Ron Paul deserves it.

Ron Paul deserves this and many other awards, including Nobel Peace Prize.

However, I can not and will not sign the petition:

- Who would issue the award.

- obama himself has been awarded NPP (I know, different award), which makes it meaningless.

- I believe that Ron Paul is above and beyond what any award could ever signify.

Give the award to another club member. They are a dime a dozen and meaningless anymore.

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

Ap'paul'ling how many fall for schemes... and time passes!

From the white House collection of data and real names of future detainees, to the White House collection of names of supporters of Ron Paul, the blind seem to fall for these worthless time wasters by the thousands... of course out of respect for Dr. Paul.

Where are the tested by fire, the tried and true, the experienced Paul grassroots who understand the constitutional processes, and are wary of men who would 'know all' about your life, your property, your whereabouts?

One should no more signup for futile issues on the enemy's website than one should join the war to experience peace!

The White House has NO SAY in the matter of secession, just as they have no authority to abuse the people's money or money value by printing more for worthless medals... medals by the way which typically will never be awarded if any member of Congress had to pay from his own theft lined pocket!

Any petition to seek secession will only have meaning if addressed to the legislature of the State seeking such. If the people have not prepared the way by voting out the bums and replacing them with sound constitutionalists, such efforts to petition are not only hopeless, they are a complete distraction and waste of precious time and resources... the latter two being needed right now for the start of the Ron Paul 2016 campaign, against which the party, both parties, have already begun organizing in order to stave off a loss of their candy store the FED, most certainly to come under an even greater attack in the coming 4 years!

It is NOW time to focus efforts far more precisely than 2008 and 2012, on exactly what is needed to take over the process: sweep the party into compliance with the constitution, then sweep out of office the perpetrators of the greatest theft and frauds in history.. barring none!

Blindness permeates Congress, and the 'blind leaders of the blind' and corrupt public servants are... you guessed it, WE THE PEOPLE!

We have put them there... again, right back to the mud hole and mire from which they thought they would be cast! But much to their own shock, their bosses the grassroots, have instead, in spite of their own ranting and weeping and screaming, sent them all right back!

It is more bizarre than 1984... for we already read 1984, then proceeded to follow in it's footsteps!

Focus friends of Ron Paul. Forget the accolades. History will be replete with praise for the greatest congressman of all time no doubt.

We have no time to build castles in his name except they be of constitutional adherence and learning, to paint portraits of him except they be the picture of life, liberty, and free recourse to private property, and no time for medals, except they be the sound of sound money paid to industrious workers, stored in free banks, and once again clinking on the counter of an unencumbered marketplace!

War is too fearsome, theft to abominable, and life too precious, to waste time on anything else but the task at hand, a task of even greater magnitude than that we faced in 2007 or 2011!

It is time the grassroots nurtured their own growth and grew wings, and took flight for liberty! It is now that time. We are that generation still!

It should be further noted...

...that the current 5th most "popular" petition is "Outlaw offending prophets of major religions", with 36,943 signatures... Something which would clearly be unconstitutional. "Offending prophets" is covered by free speech.

Who are the people behind this nonsense?

Oh yes... we have been noting the 'DP age' of some...

of the petition pushers! No doubt innocence abounds but hand in hand with ignorance! Another 'favorite' is the paper ballot issue! Asking the Feds to interject themselves is another sign of constitutional blindness! That is a state issue!

A Federal government that big as to usurp such jurisdiction is the direct result of fraud 'non-hand-counted, elections! Asking them to trim their sails of tyranny is, well, why bother stating the obvious!

Hmm...Why wouldn't Ron Paul approve of this?

He was never against the medal, just the funding of it.

So following his example:

I hereby am offering up the first $100 dollars to fund it, I hope you all will join me

Educate and inform the whole mass of the people... They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty. -Thomas Jefferson

I'm in

I'll match your hundred.

Right, so creating a petition

Right, so creating a petition to fund it is ridiculous. Do it completely at the grassroots.

I would chip in. How are you

I would chip in. How are you going to do it? What type or kind of medal will it be? Can we get it done before the end of his term?


The good Dr. should receive a medal only through private contributions from the grass roots..... Anything else would be ironic and absurd

I tend to agree...

Ron Paul getting a medal from the Obama Administration? Ha, that is almost an insult! RP is a different caliber of man, second to none. But he deserves something extraordinarily special, indeed.

I Signed

Very proud to signed this petition. But I am very surprised, and concerned that this petition is not on the front page.

Ron Paul himself would not approve of this. He has always voted NO on the Congressional Medals and even voted NO on Rosa Parks receiving one.

Anyone promoting this idea is no true supporter and follower of Ron Paul.

Voted no on Mother Teresas metal also

However, as I understand it, it was because of the cost to the tax payer, not the intent to honor her. That being the case, we will pay for it voluntarily, I think he would be OK with that.

Thanks Adam- You beat me to it

I am sure Ron was against the California gmo labeling proposal that many here supported.
Liberty is not about using the government to get what you want at the expense of others- that's what all statists do
They use the foce of government to get what they want.

Your second signer, signed as Impeach O. Um..that's not helpful.

Come on people. You don't make up fictitious names to sign a petition. If you mean it, sign it.

I was gladly #6 to sign it...

we must get 25,000 + to make it happen..everyone should take the time and do this!

It's time! Rand Paul 2016!

"Truth, Justice, and the American Way!"

It should be noted...

...that the second most popular petition on the petitions.whitehouse.gov site says, "Recount the election!" (with 44,000+ signatures as of this post.

He would say no.

Ron Paul might be honored, but I suspect he would say no to such an award. The cost of the medal would be paid for by taxes, and his answer to the President and Congress is very well might be "it's not your's to give."

George Washington

did not seek the Presidency, yet Americans still rallied behind him to make him the 1st President under the Constitution. I see this as essentially the same thing.

No it's not

Because you want the government to pay to recognize our hero.

A better proposal is to design a 10 ounce custom designed silver medal for Ron and have it commissioned into production and presented to him.

We could do a limited run.

Everyone chips in say 75 dollars and they get a one ounce version of the coin.

The rest of the money covers the cost of design production and towards Ron's coin.

I think it should be funded voluntarily

We could all chip in. I would definitely be opposed to it if it were funded by government. But, to be honest, I don't actually expect the President to give it to Ron. I just want the President to have to respond to it, maybe get Ron's name back in the news.
