They did?

all those decades as a Libertarian and Indy, and all I recall at this point, was wanting to destroy the two major parties.

I thought Ron Paul was brilliant for inviting us to join the GOP. You're saying Ron Paul was doing nothing new. Man!!

LOL Amazing.. Life is amazing.. I never, none of the heros I worked with, ever tried to "infiltrait" our ideas into the major parties. Maybe now that more Ron Paul Republicans (I understand you do not agree with Ron Paul C4L and anyone who useds that term) are are board it will? And why not?

May I ask you, sincerely, what is conservative about destroying the major parties?


No, Ron Paul NEVER "invited Libertarians to join the GOP." IN THE VERY VIDEO ABOVE, he explains the EXTREMELY DAMAGING MONOPOLY of the leftist republican/democrat (same thing) party. He has also SUPPORTED THIRD PARTY VOICES IN THE PAST, like Baldwin, Nader and McKinney. He has ALSO REFUSED TO ENDORSE the republican party "nominee" in 08 ans 12.

The "infiltration" has been tried OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER... only to FAIL MISERABLY EVERY TIME. The Reagan Revolution, the Contract With America, Christian Coalition, Compassionate Conservatives, Tea Party Tsunamis, etc, etc... WHATEVER IT'S CALLED, IT FAILS!

I'm sorry to inform you, but "conserving" is simply NO LONGER AN OPTION. The leftist democrat/republican (same thing) party HAS DESTROYED OUR REPUBLIC. There's simply NOTHING LEFT TO "CONSERVE!" This is a sobering reality America MUST UNDERSTAND.

HOWEVER, to RESTORE Constitutional Liberty, the LEFTIST democrat/republican (same thing) party WHO DESTROYED IT, MUST be discarded.

I only joined the GOP a little over a year ago

And my experience disagrees with your theory.

PS "Ooopsy" is so gay. You may have the right to be queer, but I have a right to ask you from not talking like that to me. I'm not interested in a sexual relationship with a gay man.. so please stop this ooopsy stuff with me. Be queer,, be proud, just leave me out of your queer world. THANK YOU


is designed to be insulting. It's the way you communicate with a child. If you'll notice, I sometimes resort to an "oooopsy-dooopsy," when the conversation gets really infantile. I'm a little puzzled as to how child-like communication = homosexuality. Not unexpected though... I suppose you're using the same calculations that resulted in your "infiltration" = Constitutional republican party, right? I think you need your instruments completely re-calibrated.

But congratulations on your year! When you have a few DECADES of getting kicked in the face by the republican party... then we'll talk about the wisdom of "infiltration" strategies.

I'm listen now and haven't gotten to this point

As a former Nader volunteer for opening debates and ballots.. the GP split back in Y2K.. GPUSA and GP International.. Greens are totally controlled by the Democrats.. just like LP is controlled by the GOP and why third parties are always fronting major party candidates who will wear their buttons.


they are a changin'.

The leftist republican party is finished. They ONLY THING they can do now, is siphon support away from the Constitution Party and the Libertarian Party... clearing the runway for democrat win after win after win... just like 2012 and 2008. America is beginning to see, THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT THE LEFTIST REPUBLICAN PARTY WANTS!!!!!!

Brother Winston Smith

The r3VOLution is NOT republiCAN.

I'm so happy the leftist republican party is FINISHED

May the rightest republican party prevail!

Good luck...

slinging your righteous devils, cement gardens, flying pigs, swimming hotdogs, gasoline-filled fire extinguishers, salt water drinking fountains, sand houses, metal ice cube trays for the oven and other SNAKE OILS.

But America is beginning to SEE, that the venders of these "products" are SHYSTERS.

Brother Winston Smith

Yes! We have grown this much, r3VOLution will continue to grow.

Thank you for pointing that out :-)

Twitter question:

"Rep. Paul will you work to reform election laws to make ballots more accessible to third parties?"

Ron Paul:
"Boy, I have always done that, and I always will work on trying to reform it."

THANK YOU DR. PAUL!!!!! Yes, I DETEST... ABSOLUTELY DETEST the leftist republican/democrat (same thing) party and am happy to hear of the continuing efforts to SMASH THEIR CORRUPT STRANGLEHOLD on American politics!

What has Government done to our money?

The fact

that RP does not mention Libertarian party makes me beileve he wants us to focus on GOP and his son. But the individual liberty movement would be weakened from a family clan. A father cannot clone himself. GOP will continue to be a collectivist dogma until it is cleaned from religious and that wont happen in decades. We will have in 2016 same situation as today.

Without boosting Libertarian Party, libertarians would not be able to offer a clear-cut alternative to independent voters. And intpendents equally despise collectivist dogmas - religious and progressive.

Also, the doctor does not understand why libertarian ideology does not sell well under good economy. He still panders "logic" to religious folks forgetting that Lord works in mysterious ways.

No. I think you may have clicked on the wrong video.

Paul CLEARLY EXPRESSES HIS CONTEMPT for the republican/democrat (same thing) party. He also CLEARLY ARTICULATES THE EVIL MONOPOLY the republican/democrat (same thing) party has over American politics. THIS IS NOT AN ENDORSEMENT OF, OR ANY DESIRE TO "focus on GOP and his (sellout) son."

I understand atheist propagandists will concoct FANTASIES about religion being the source of our nation's predicament, but actually America MUST REDISCOVER AND ACKNOWLEDGE THE GOD OF WHOM THIS REPUBLIC BELONGS. Our embarrassment of that God and our apprehension TO STAND FOR HIM... IS EXACTLY WHY WE ARE IN OUR CURRENT BROKEN STATE!

Some propagandists will actually (if you can believe it) go to such RIDICULOUS DEPTHS, as to bridge religion with some sort of collectivist dogma that damages Constitutional Liberty. It is a really laughable notion that begs the question... is love a "collectivist dogma?" Is friendship a "collectivist dogma?" Is integrity a "collectivist dogma?" Is faith a "collectivist dogma?"

Brother Winston Smith

The r3VOLution is NOT republiCAN.

Yes ,

Brother, it is collectivist.

You may have a personal relationship with your man in the sky and negotiate your own entry into Utopia (paradise) after death, but who will teach you the tricks of such an entry to be sure? Faith is not knowledge you can be sure about. You cannot use your own mind. To raise your expectations to achieve Utopia (paradise in the sky), you must turn to a collective dogma about trinity, grace and other things. Many first Christians were woshiping a single god for about 200 years until organized church enforced Trinity.


Typically, atheists who seek to RAM ATHEISM DOWN THE THROATS OF A NATION will (A) freely express their CONTEMPT for faith, by smearing it and trivializing it... and (B) INTENTIONALLY MIX "religion/faith" and "church" - two different things. The folks who have smashed the 1st Amendment (WITH the 1st Amendment) do the same.

But... all your deception aside... you failed to explain HOW faith in God is "collectivism" that threatens our Constitutional Republic. Nor have you explained how IDIOTICALLY-BLIND loyalty to a IRREPARABLY CORRUPT, LEFTIST, COLLECTIVIST Party like the republican party... is not "collectivism," BASED ON YOUR OWN WARPED DEFINITION.

Step 1. Resubmit to the Lord.
Step 2. FULLY AND WHOLLY REJECT the leftist republican/democrat (same thing) party.
Step 3. The Constitution Party.
Step 4. The Libertarian Party.
Step 5. State nullification.

they let him speak to the ignorant masses. Hope it sticks! This is the longest interview I have ever seen MSM allow him. I guess they don't consider him a threat anymore. THINK AGAIN!


First they laugh at you, then

First they laugh at you, then they ignore, then they join you

An incredible man!

Glad I'm lucky enough to be alive while he is. He woke me up and if I could eat dinner with anyone it would be Ron Paul!


He makes me proud too!

2 Chron 7:13-14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

I'm loving all these Ron Paul videos lately

I'm also loving the idea of infiltrating both parties. Mwahahaha

Thanks for posting!

This is going on my next Ron Paul T-Shirt...

Some much common sense in just one guy! I wonder why it's so difficult for people to understand.
