You nor I can solve the world's problems

Most of the people on here are very intelligent individuals with brains capable of much more than mine. You guys know so much information, and are so informed that you have a solution for everything that comes up. However, I disagree.

You cannot solve the problem because saying that you know what is best for other people is not freedom. It is wrong for the Government to govern areas where they are not given consent, and it would be wrong for you guys to command your ideas also. Dr. Paul has many great ideas for solutions that he has never pursued because he does not believe in forcing others to our position.

"I want to use all my strength, to resist the notion that I can run your lives, or run the economy, or run the world. I want to use that strength to repeal and reject that notion, and stand up and defend the principles of liberty."

Remember the good doctor's words before you go trying to impose your will on others.

Good day friends.

I have been thinking

that the revolutionaries are doomed to become the establishment lately also. You are right, he who fights monsters...

It's sad to see this movement move towards hostility towards anyone with a different opinion, but I think in general as much as this group prides itself on not being "sheep" or being individualistic thinkers we are moving towards an elitist mentality that no one dare challenge without being subjected to vicious comments.

didn't you just contradict yourself

with the words in your post?
if no one can make any change then Ron Paul was wrong
but in that post he states a way
just asking

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

In a way I did

I also contradict myself saying I can't solve the problems, then saying we should restore the Constitution. Basically I'm trying to say is that I personally think we need to be more down to Earth and keep things simple. Dr. Paul attracted this following partly because he keeps things simple and explains them in a way simple people like me can understand as well as saying himself that he cannot run the world or economy. To me, the quote in the OP is the solution.

Good

Glad I am not the only one here who has noticed how many "experts" we have on everything.

For the defeatist topic...

Why reject Dr. Paul's sentiment

He means it, the only solution needed in my eyes is to restore the Constitution. Then let individuals solve all the problems once they are free to do so. I know you already know everything, how's that working for you??
