Support Ron Paul by Donating to Rand PAC

I believe we all should support Dr. Paul by supporting the causes of liberty. We are should donate to Rand PAC in the name on industrial hemp in Kentucky. If you wish to donate please go to: http://www.randpac.com/

I love it that this speech is still at the top of the home page

I'm watching it for my third time now. A few days ago I was watching it with a friend and he said near the end, laughing but serious, "I wish I had taken notes."

In my district, we have taken

In my district, we have taken the wheel and are leading our party into the direction of Liberty. We decided to instead of going more center to pander to the changing demographics, we are going to focus on teaching the demographics. We are starting here in our little district.
We've decided that we need to start with the basics, emphasizing the importance of American history and the Constitution.

I am in charge of social networking. I've created a Facebook page to focus on such things. Please check it out and give me a like! Help us go viral!


RON PAUL... love from South Africa

My friend, a Mitt supporter joked that Ron Paul has dementia, the sad thing is if I send this link by e-mail to him, he won't even click on it.

Ron Paul speaks great truth and remember he is a Christian and all the so called social conservative CHRISTIANS wanting to bomb Isreal's enemies instead of preaching the gospel to the Jews of Isreal rejected this man. Jesus was rejected and crucified at the cross for our sins, he shone light in the darkness and dare I say Ron Paul has. Although his was never a Chrsitian teaching, he LIVED OUT HIS Christianity. Thats why I think so many Gary Johnson voters still had their heart on Ron Paul.

Here's another rendering, a little less choppy :


Thanks to SilverCoinNews

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.

Thank you so much for your long life of service Dr Paul. You are a true statesman and I will always love you.

When and where is Ron Paul massive retirement party!

We need to show the world what we think of real heroes!


When he retires. I don't think he's done working for liberty, yet.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

wow...Ron Paul's speech still

wow...Ron Paul's speech still top news on DrudgeReport

a very thought provoking speech

I loved it. I think he has another book in him entitled "On Envy and Intolerance."

I miss you already Dr. Paul

He's not even gone and I miss him already. I feel like we have nothing stopping our corrupt government anymore. I know there are some we want to believe in, but I don't know if I will ever trust anyone like Dr. Paul. This sucks. I still have not watched this speech. I wish we could have been here for him 30 yrs. ago. Maybe things would be different by now.

Don't get down!

Be optimistic! I know that can be hard, but Ron is always optimistic about things. Also, while Ron will no longer be in congress he will still be working on getting the message out. He has said that he will still be going to campuses and trying to push the message of freedom. So in some ways his political career is coming to an end, and in other ways it's just beginning =)

I suggest you get in a better

I suggest you get in a better frame of mind before you listen to this speech. If you are down now, before hearing the farewell speech, you will likely fall into utter despair with an unsettling realization that a chapter is closing.

This is a very powerful, and historical address.

so it should be known to everyone everywhere!

Let's keep propagating this post ad infinitum... until we give everyone a chance to think about the content of this speech.

Ron Paul ... forever.

I agree with you

Last night I watched a movie called No Country For Old Men with Tommy Lee Jones.I got the message of the movie.This country has changed.Not for the better.I see now this country has become No Country for Moral Men.I pray Ron Paul is right about changing the next generation values.With the tentacles of Washington and public schools I am wary.

Money talks and dogs bark


He sold his house in L Jackson/Clute, does anyone know where the Pauls moved to?
I know they also had a beach house in Clear Lake area but not sure where they moved after they sold their main house last january..
anyone here know where they call home now??

"OH NO! He has a SON?" Neoconservatives and Liberals EVERYWHERE!

Rand Paul 2016


Lord Stannis Baratheon, First of His Name, King of the Andals, the Rhoynar and the First Men, Lord of the Seven Kingdoms and Protector of the Realm, would willingly withdraw his claim to the Iron Throne for Sir Ronald Ernest Paul!!! That's how amazing Ron Paul is!

No... but in all seriousness, thank you so much for all you have done, Dr. Paul. You are a true inspiration, and a man to be admired and emulated throughout time.

Love you

And Thank You for all your hard work, Dr. Paul. You are my hero and I aspire to be like you!

"you're a funny dude, but who gives a fuck about that? I don't care about someone's wit, I care about the courage of their heart and the honesty of their mind."

Thank you, Dr. Paul

You will be greatly missed while your contribution to freedom lives on and is immeasurable

Haven't watched yet but

bumping. Sad that one of the most rare people, totally honest and uncorruptable, is stepping down. It is now our turn to continue what he has fought for, for so long. Sad though.

Truthful farewell speech

A farewell speech and the beginning of big awakening, spreading Ron Paul's message of peace and liberty in the heart and mind of an individual, patiently and surely, until they open their eyes and eventually voluntarily join the cause of liberty.

Truth is treason in the empire of lies - Ron Paul

The Anti-federalist

Warned that the new constitution might be misinterpreted and worded too loosely.

Is Paul right?

I think we can all agree that Congress, and politics in general, will be more boring without Ron Paul. So...

POLL: Is Ron Paul correct that our constitution has failed?

Vote: http://www.wepolls.com/p/13223517

Yes, he is right. It was a

Yes, he is right. It was a bad idea from the beginning. Bring back the Articles!

"It is difficult to free fools from the chains they revere".

It's hard not to be a menace to society when half the population is happy on their knees. - unknown

Of course he's right...

...from 1861-65, the Constitution failed in to protect the rights of anyone, as it has failed to protect our rights today. In the aftermath of that bloody conquest of the Southern (and Northern) states by unfettered Federal tyranny, a mournful Yankee, Lysander Spooner, summed it up best:

“But whether the Constitution really be one thing, or another, this much is certain - that it has either authorized such a government as we have had, or has been powerless to prevent it. In either case it is unfit to exist.”

Hard words to those of us who revere the Constitution, but they are hard to argue with, given our tragic history.

Personally, I think a giant

Personally, I think a giant statue of Ron Paul with the words Dr. NO! inscribed at the bottom should be erected right within the congressional chamber where they vote. That way he could be a constant reminder to all present and future congresspeople of what to strive for.

after his performance in 2007 the people are changed forever

and soon there will be a point where D.C. will give in or give up to the Republic.. a civil war between democrats and republicans may ensue after we take over the GOP which is soon... I ask all of you liberty lovers to stand in grace like RP did and let the opposition wilt into adolescence until communism rears its violent head for the last time.

A true flower can not blossom without sunlight and a true man can not live without love.
