Ron Paul 2016!

Are you with me?

First of all,

NO ONE is going to force Dr. Paul to run again. If he does, it will be of his own volition. Has he done enough already? Well, if you consider doing more for liberty than probably any human being in world history "enough," well then, yes, I think he has. And then some. And then some more.

That having been said, if he runs again in 2016, you betcher sweet patootie I'm behind him. 110%.

Rand is too compromising for my taste. He has yet to convince me.

Ron Paul 2016? HELL YEAH.

Old thread I know

You hit the nail on the head. I share this position on Ron Paul 2016 as well as on Rand.

The trouble with a tiny bit of compromising in the Senate, voting for sanctions and such, is multiplied when you become President. If you decide that you have to "strategically compromise", doing a tiny bit of evil for a large amount of good, then the temptations will be so much worse when your signature means so much more. How soon did we see that Reagan could throw out all of his principles and make no progress toward freedom? Now I'm not saying that Rand Paul is not an option at all, but I really don't see him as much better of a choice than, say, candidate George W Bush.

Let's support the cause of liberty, give credit where credit is due, and always be prepared.

Michael Nystrom's fists can punch through FUD.

My sentiments exactly

And either way, the Republican party is begining to swell with the likes of us, and if Ron runs, or if Rand convinces us to supprt him, we will be in a much better position from within the party to sway the nomination.

stop being ridiculous

Leave the man alone. He has done so much for this movement, let him retire in peace. Those of you hung up on Ron Paul really need to get over yourselves. It is time to move on.


Doesn't everyone already know that Ron Paul is "unelectable"?

OP, I'm with you. Ron Paul 2016! Of course, it's up to him, but it's perfectly fine for us to ask.

Michael Nystrom's fists can punch through FUD.

The best chance of our

The best chance of our lifetime exists with Rand Paul.

Prepare for Ron.

It doesn't matter if he runs, someone in the liberty movement be it Rand or whoever will run. We'll need to be prepared and ready to go when our time comes, so prepare anyway.

who is this "our" you speak of?

certainly not believers and messengers of the libertarian way of thinking.

Sad to see...

While I love Ron Paul to death, it's just so sad to see how so many people here depend on one man to provide them with liberty. Dr. Paul isn't going to run again and that boat has sailed twice already yet some still want to live the fantasy. Dr. Paul has been tremendously effective in spreading the message of Liberty, and he'll be covering a lot more ground by doing what he's already starting doing. Which is going across college campuses and planting that seed to people who will have a better reception to it.

If Ron Runs

I'll support him. I remember the discussion in 2008 about Ron Paul 2012, and everyone was saying that he would be too old. His age is a non-issue to me.

I'm not hung up on him, but he is, by a very very wide margin, the best for the job. I could say that others are good too, but Ron is my first choice, hands down.

Ron Paul Forever!

Ron Paul is and will be my President, Congressman, Senator, and Legislator. No matter what year at what time Ron Paul's stance and principles are for life. Ron Paul IS the Golden Standard for any politician.

His name is Edward Snowden

What is Capitalism?

I agree, he has set the gold standard


I'd sure support and vote for him if he ran. I don't think he plans to, though.

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

I love Ron Paul

And I would have given anything to have seen him as President. But, we need to accept that he lost the election. He's not going to run again. He'll be 81 years old in 2016, and even though we here know he is healthy and would still be perfectly capable as President, most people will not vote for someone that age. Also, he's retired. He's been fighting for us for 30 years. He deserves a rest now. We need to stop holding on to something that isn't going to happen and prepare for the next liberty candidate to run, which at this point looks like it will be Rand.

Yes, he did his

Yes, he did his it's our turn.

I wish...

Ron Paul would make permanent lifestyle changes. He can easily go 100+ years. Biggest killers for people his age are stroke/heart disease, cancer, COPD and pneumonia. (I just did a public lecture about it today). He can greatly decrease his odds by doing permanent lifestyle changes. Nat Geo did a great issue on what the longest living people on earth did to live the longest. There is short summary of habits on this short clip:
Another short clip about the topic: and another: and another:
Atherosclerosis or hardening of the arteries is reversible, see the proof positive in the following article (that is what Bill Clinton (yes, I think he was a very bad president, (we are talking about health right now!) saw that made him change his diet):

I honestly don't trust Rand, I am sorry. To me I see a lot of people in denial. Like a girlfriend/boyfriend relationship, in which you can see that the guy is abusive, has a drinking problem, yet the girl "in love" says "oh, don't worry, he will change!"...Yeah, right, you see the wreck of that marriage later on and kids floating around. That is what I see on Rand too many red flags (endorsement of Romney, CAMPAIGNING for him, his Israel stand, his Iran stand, not helping people elect Ron Paul from the floor of the convention, etc...) for my taste buds. If you want a candidate a la Ron Paul he is not the person. Even ancient wisdom say that being on both sides of the isle at the same time is not good.
Luke 16:13 "No servant is able to serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will stand by and be devoted to the one and despise the other" or Revelation 3:16.

Those are my 2 cents...

A good way to defend your freedoms:

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

No matter who runs

they will NEVER EVER EVER let a liberty loving guy get the nodd!

Haven't we learned anything these past 2 elections!

America gave up on God, now He has given us over to ourselves!

We are getting what we deserve as a very wicked, self loving, lustful, wasteful, ungrateful, ungodly nation!

No Jesus....No peace!

Know Jesus, Know peace!

totally true. Hang in there, be watchful and persevere until the end.

Rand Paul

is a 100% Neo-Con, status-quo sell out. Do not trust him.

Let Us Preserve What Is Left Of Our Republic Before We Talk

presidential politics between now and 2016.

They want our guns and if we are foolish enough to turm them in to the feds we're done for..

One day at a time gentlemen...please!

If election were open and free they would be illegal...

Yes, if Ron Paul were to run again, I would support him, of course.

Rand needs a bit more experience. Ron is still the man among boys..

Ron Paul president since 2008 and main 2nd term issues!

Yes! In the same time... :-)

Positive support for Ron Paul ideas! Support from the Restoration and Liberty Movement on

He should run on a ticket

He should run on a ticket with Judge Napolitano. I think if the Judge was running for president and RP as vice there would be a substantially better chance of success. You've got to remember that Dr. Paul does not really want to be president. He has stated this numerous times. His real goal of running was to change the national conversation and shed light on the current state of the union. I'd like to see the good doctor involved but I think that the ticket would look better with him as VP. The Judge will debate anyone and crush them. Dr. Paul won every debate but my opinion i that he is not agressive enough to call the others on their lies. The judge is the perfect blend of Ron Paul and Alex Jones.

"It does not take a majority to prevail, but an irate tireless few keen on setting the brushfire of freedom in the minds of men." - Samuel Adams

He's the one one I see around whom I actually want as president.

Of course I'd back him. I don't expect him to do it though, but I'd love it if he did.

Show me the money.

The money MUST be there. If a trust of some sort could be arranged and $$ collected now, then perhaps many more would join in and join the fight for a Constitutional government would begin. When Ron got large sums of money, it made news. Money talks. A trust collecting millions of dollars would be amazing. He also needs a VP with enormous eloquence to send the message with him. Someone who will show no fear and be younger. Put together an amazing cabinet. Show the people what they have to look forward to.
Just my opinion.

While I agree with your

While I agree with your statement about collecting money, it would be wise to assume that the media will simply block any sort of coverage the same way they did in 2012. With that said, there aren't many people left in the world who actually trust MSM anymore, so perhaps the key is to focus on getting the word out in cyberspace assuming the tweezerheads in government don't regulate that by law.
