Excellent article. Well worth reading.

The Judge proves once again that he is a great leader. If Dr. Ron Paul decides not to run in 2016 I plan on supporting Judge Napalitano.

Thanks for posting this article.

Great article.

He always makes people think. Wish he was running 2016!

Help make it happen

Ron Paul and The Judge For President in 2016
