I love This Man


"All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident."

Tell This

to RAND!


I wonder what he and his son

I wonder what he and his son talk about when they get together?


Posted the comment above before I read this. Nuff said.


It is Beyond Me

That anyone with a clean heart and a clear mind could refute One Word of this speech.

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. Martin Luther King Jr.

Yeah so we have one who is opposing sanctions

and we have another pushing for harder ones and then those that are backing the guys.

Yep, nothing wrong with that picture at all. :)

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution, inevitable.

Benjamin Franklin had the same problem

His son became a governor and moved to England, a Tory.

On twitter people were saying Ron will be making an announcement

in January. Does anyone know anything about that?

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

Amazing how Rand is so different from his father

Rand knows better but I think he is getting payoffs??? Hmmm maybe not long before Rand turns on the freedom movement.

Maybe Ron and Rand have different goals...

...Ron is (and has always been) trying to educate people, while Rand is trying to achieve political power. Maybe it's inappropriate to make comparisons between them?

Nah, it's much more likely that Rand totally sold out./sarc

"Alas! I believe in the virtue of birds. And it only takes a feather for me to die laughing."

yeah, Rand would be the first

yeah, Rand would be the first to sell out. Not like they have anything to offer...oh wait unlimited cash, power, women.

The White House opposed the most recent round of Iran sanctions:


surprising to say the least.

Obama less of a Hawk than Rand? Sad. Maybe we can chalk up Rand's opposition to Libya as blind partisanship.

Remember what dad said?

Has anyone sent this video to Rand? I would like to hear him speak to its content...
I can't seem to find an email address for him. Just the submission form on his senate website that I am sure resembles this senario;

“Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the government take care of him better take a closer look at the American Indian.” ― Henry Ford.

Mr. Consistent

All that Dr. Paul said is true today. Or as history has taught us will come true in regards to blow back. 11 votes out of 400+. I really do not have hope for this country until we destroy ourselves completely from the inside.
I do hope theres enough remaining to start over, by using the frame work of the founding fathers. At this point, it will be very difficult.

Have you checked out this video? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dYleC7l86ys&feature=plcp this video was told to me by my uncle in Nebraska.

There is a Republic site for every state in the union. Find yours.

Here is my state: http://www.republicfororegon.org/

The main site, http://www.republicfortheunitedstates.org/ is under maintenance right now.

I Agree With Congressman Paul

Most of the House and Senate are wolves in sheeps clothing. I wouldn't be a bit suprised if most of them are being blackmailed for committing crimes punishable by imprisonment. Many of them are gay and don't want that fact out...

If I had my way I would chop off the heads of most of the congress because they have blood on their hands. They, by their illegal and immoral legislation have destroyed millions of americans and foreigners.

I have no respect for the congress nor that puppet they call a president.

They will rue the day they started war with Iran and they will most certainly do that deed and soon.

Do you understand how many American-Iranians there are in this nation? What do you think they will do if we attack Iran?

This nation is on a suicide mission in many ways..

God help us all....Pray for peace and sanity..


Well said

I agree 100%

sanctions are a modern day siege

to say they aren't an act of war is madness. Rand's amendment is basically saying it's fine to starve them out but we should hold off catapulting the diseased cow carcasses for now.

he is no dr. no

more like dr. yes.

Rand Voted for an Act of War, without

Constitutionaly debating and voting for a Declaration of War, like he has stated he staunchly stands for, so he is just another politcal collectivist. Rand needs to determine 'really quickly' if he is going to hold up to his Constitutional Oath, if not, he should resign his seat. It's real simple Lovers of Rand, either you stand for the Constitution and vote that way, otherwise you are a hipocrytical fraud collectivist BS politician. There's really no debate to be made, period. Next, he's going to Israhell to kiss Nutsayahoo's azz, probably put a Yahmulka on, whale at the whaling wall, and come back a new born Zionist anti-Christian pro-Israhell pacifying warmongerer. Show me the last politician who made the journey to Israhell and didn't come back as a pro-Zionist apologist? If Rand wants to show he can be a 'real' leader, he will go meet with Hamas after meeting Nutsayahoo, and listen to both sides, and really see what hell the Palestinians go through, rather than a staged guided trip to Israel's wonderland tour! Of course, he doesn't have the nads to do that, nor would it be 'good' for his political asparations he is working.

"Rand needs to determine 'really quickly' if he is going to hold up to his Constitutional Oath..."

It seems to me that he's already made that decision!

Its no small wonder why his father has distanced himself from his "sell out" son! Has anyone noticed Ron standing by Rand? I haven't!

its 'cos I owe ya, my young friend...
Rockin' the FREE world in Tennessee since 1957!
9/11 Truth.

when Ron gave this speech,

when Ron gave this speech, sanctions were an act of war. But then Rand put an amendment in the sanctions and changed them; they are no longer an act of war.

try telling that...

to the starving iranian children who are affected by these sanctions!

"no longer an act of war"?

you should wake up and smell the folgers!

I'll take your saw

I painted it, here's your hammer.

Just open the box and see

Is that sarcasm?

I hope so. I would say a vote for Rand more closely approximates a vote fro Aaron Burr.
Not only are sanctions an act of war - regardless of how pretty the words declaring the sanction may be - they are a heinous attack on the INNOCENT RESIDENTS. I won't argue that any and all governments probably deserve to be cut off from all support, but the politicians will not suffer from these sanctions, the women and children will.
How far does this apple have to roll before you stop justifying blind support?

What does Ron Paul know, and we know, that Rand does not?

Are you listening to this, Rand? Please start listening to your father and real fast.
