Ron Paul: Focus on Policy, Not Personality

The New American: Ron Paul’s sound advice may not be echoing off the walls of Congress anymore, but he continues to share it in interviews and opinion articles.

The latest example of the latter was published January 15 on thedailybell.com. In his take on President Obama’s choices for secretary of defense and director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), Dr. Paul suggests that Americans should pay more attention to the policies than to the personalities.

“There is widespread belief that either or both of these nominees will have an immediate and profound effect on US policy,” Paul says. “However, this belief is really just a mistaken over-emphasis on personnel over policy. We should not forget that cabinet secretaries serve the president, and not the other way around.”

Ron Paul doesn't know what

Ron Paul doesn't know what he's talking about.

Focus on policy when the USA has been seized by Zionist terrorists on 9/11?

Focus on policy when the government is HOAXING staged shootings like Sandy Hook?

His own son, instead of challenging these Zionist Jewish extremists, is being lulled and copted by them.

You guys are never going to get traction until you admit YOU WERE WRONG about 9/11 and that 9/11 was an inside job orchestrated by the neo-cons with considerable help from the US government.

After you admit you were wrong about 911, you should apologize to the rest of us for dragging the truth down and (unknowingly) acting as useful idiots of the conspirators.

Then you can start focusing on REAL POLICY like "a new 9/11 investigation".

Go on - downvote, laugh, ignore, rationalise it all away. At the end of the day, that's the only path out of this whether you agree with it or not.

As always RP is right. :)

Great new video series Contains RP explaining the principles of Secession.



Protect your assets and profit from the greatest wealth transfer in history.

since we are talking about the bell here is something to see

Over the last few weeks, indeed since his victory at the polls, I have been listening to President Obama's speeches quite regularly. I wasn't surprised one bit at his ready exploitation of the Connecticut school shooting. As one of his hacks, Rahm Emanuel, said a few months ago, "You never want a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that, it's an opportunity to do things that you think you could not do before." And more government control of the lives of American citizens is, as I can figure it, the priority of this president. He believes we are a tribe that he rules and whatever chance he finds he will use to make sure everyone does what he envisions is the proper thing to do. Give up your weapons; let the feds be the sole armed group in the country! Treat all wealth as public, collective and basically abolish private property rights, mostly by way of the constant increase of taxation. Don't respect anyone's right to use and dispose of resources; assume full authority over these and set the priorities for what to do with them.

Just want what seems to be missing, Truth and Justice for ALL
What is fraud except creating “value” from nothing and passing it off as something?


'In 2011, two Predator drones fired Hellfire missiles that killed three American citizens in Yemen: Anwar al-Awlaki; his 16-year-old son, Abdulraham al-Awlaki; and Samir Khan. Notably, none of these three men was ever charged with or tried for any crime.'

I am willing to bet 90% of Americans are completely unaware of this.

'Peace is a powerful message.' Ron Paul


...it's always been about character, integrity, trustworthiness, and statesmanship....hasn't it?

It's been that for me!

Our dear Ron Paul did communicate to me through his many speeches etc. that..."...one of the benefits of living in a free society is....being able to seek[to add]virtue and excellence....and this should be a personal goal(for all of us)...."

Once again, Ron Paul is two steps ahead of the game....calling for patient endurance...almost like it's 1766, not 1776; get it?

Alex Jones would have us storm the Capitol steps in anger, and keep bullhorning at the World Trade Center site or at Bilderbergers....he provokes/expresses anger....right-wing Judeo-Christian lobbyis hypocrites and paid actors on Clear Channel and FoxNews will continue fueling outrage about marriage equality and Christian expression being suppressed in both our society and especially in our military.

We're being primed to explode; and Ron is saying replacing players with men of integrity is still the GOAL over time, and through the momentum we're still building; as our outrage is justified....we can win this....if we don't "lose it"!

Thanks for posting, Michael

I think this is a philosophy the entire world could benefit from following. I think many in this community would do well to follow this advice as well...
