WND Names Ron Paul 'Man of the Decade'

"WASHINGTON – Honoring one of the most inspiring and principled political careers in contemporary American politics, culminating in an extraordinary “farewell address” upon his recent announced retirement from the House of Representatives, WND has named U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, as its “Man of the Decade.”

In addition to his primary focus of keeping government within the confines of the Constitution, Paul’s legacy will prominently feature his unwavering dedication to audit – and ultimately abolish – the Federal Reserve in a decades-long effort to restore America’s economy and monetary system to sound, constitutional principles.

He took no prisoners and abided by no political party dictates while trying to push America back to the ideas of its Founding Fathers regarding privacy, responsibility, limited government and freedom."

Nice article, but like the

Nice article, but like the Farah piece of disingenuous comedy a couple of weeks ago: too little way too late. Actually, after the way Farah and WND treated Dr. Paul, I wish them nothing but ill will. They are a good part of the blame why we still have non-Constitutionalist in the WH (as would also been the case had the Mormon Corporatist "won" the selection).

It's a great day to be FREE!

Well, remember....

Even the Rebloodlicans say that "Ron Paul was right about taxes"... whilst jettisoning Amash and others who follow Ron Paul's principled tax policy. But raise your hand if you're surprised in the least...

I believe that

I believe that congressman(statesman) Ron Paul is the one man our founders would have accepted in the fold and considered him a true patriot. Apparently too few know the difference between a statesman and a politician.

Aren't these usually presented at the end of a decade?

Nitpicking a bit, but aren't these types of accolades presented at the numeric end of the decade e.g., 2019/2020?

I figure they should have done it in 2010 and knew it.

I sure knew it!!

When all I see is 3 letters and nothing actually telling me what the 3 letters even stand for. I really couldn't give 2 shits what this means.

I might not be Alfred Nobel, but

I award him the "mdefarge Peace Prize," too. He's just a tad more deserving, I'd say, than President Obama, who received "the other one."

Best part of the article

WND’s “Man of the Decade” award is designated for the man who has, over many years, done the most to represent goodness, perseverance, manliness and character. The recipient should be someone prominent enough to have had an impact on wider American and global opinion. Their successes and failures for the year are to be weighed and considered.

There were no runners-up considered in the category.

Now THAT is cool! And I didn't notice it!

Thank you!

Yep. Absolutely the very best part!

Too bad the sheeple on that site didn't want a man like that to be the President of the United States of America. After all, we've got to support our so called "friends" and "allies" on the other side of the globe and that man would have put an end to that, if they gave him that chance.

This is good to see but

I will never forget the article written by Farah in 2008 where he said Ron Paul was NOT a good candidate because he had no real political leadership experience. He considered a Senator or Governor to be the only qualifications for POTUS.

I sent an e-mail refuting his claims - pointing out that Lincoln was a lowly Representative - never got a response and never visited that website again.

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.

Setting a good example is a far better way to spread ideals than through force of arms. Ron Paul

I name him man of the millenium.

I can't think of anyone else who has had such a profound influence in my life, in making me the man I am today.

Thank you for waking me up Dr.Ron Paul.

Wow

WND. I thought this was a typo originally. Congrats to REP.

Bump for Front Page....

not that I can access the Front Page, like several others, I can't get to it. So, pardon me if it's already there.

prodigal son?

My guess is the neighbor has to get busy with family and that includes dealing with her ex, so you actually have some time to post..

Welcome home.

yup

As all of you good people know. Dr Paul will be vindicated in the end. He is a Great Man with a message that is beyond him. The last 5 years will go down in history. The effects that Dr Paul has had will be lasting and much bigger than Obama and Romney combined. The minds and hearts he's turned on will far outlast all the criminal efforts and the constitution will be restored. LA county recently almost completely took over the GOP. We are going around the country as predicted, county by county and taking over. As I said before, the liberty movement will continue to march to the constitution and to our president. Dr Ron Paul.

THIS is a good sign.

This actually surprises me, and I believe it to be a good sign. WND can no longer afford to marginalize the winning team.

What other politician even comes close to him...

... when it comes to inspiration. Ron Paul deserves it. I cannot think of any other modern person who has started such a great movement as him.

I so agree.

But it WOULD have been nice if they had made this clear during the election....

I agree with

your comment. Are they just learning about him now? Where were they during the election? Although I agree that he deserves the recognition, it seems kind of disingenuous of WND to do this now...when he is no longer running for office. Their recognition and support are about 12 months too late!

Now it's practical

to court the Paulians. Unprincipled Neocon creeps.

Yes Denise...Sadly, they are...

..."a day late and a dollar short".

But congrats to our hero Dr Paul, God Bless Him!

BTW: Has anybody heard anything about GJ lately? ;)
