RARE! Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul Rockin' an AR15! No Really! From 1989.

Just when you thought our favorite septuagenarian couldn't get any more cool-er, he makes (made) an ad with an AR15, in hand! Paul 2nd Amendment 1989:

Is the right to firearms really essential? Doctor and Congressman Ron Paul reminds us that freedom to defend yourself is natural and proper.

** Well... except for the "the 2nd Amendment gives us that right" portion, which we all know that Dr. Paul understands the nuances of Bill of Rights (it doesn't 'give' or grant ANYTHING, as testified in his numerous subsequent public videos, it merely codifies and guarantees pre-existent innate natural rights), it's a sweet little ad!

Exercise your right of self-defense!

Exercising and defending freedom can go a long way to liberate it.

Wow! What an excellent find.

Wow! What an excellent find. Especially considering that neocon Bill Krystol and others on Fox are now calling rifles WMDs and calling for gun control. I'm afraid the teaocons' heads will explode from cognitive dissonance. Oh what am I saying, their heads are impenetrable.

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

Anyone have a pic of this??

Curly hair

We can see where Rand gets some of his curls. Ron has them too.

I do prefer to see him speak spontaneously though.

LOL as 'silly' as it may seem, THAT was exactly the

first thought that popped into my head, too! Not the 'out of place' fact that 'hey, isn't that Dr. Paul with an AR??' LOL

yup, until this video, had no idea how curly Doc's do was. oh god, now we're totally nerding out on RP trivia. LoL. Anyone planning a R3VOL board game, for posterity?

WOW!! What A Find!!..........Bump This Puppy Up!! .....Plus +1

Where the devil did you get this from..I have never , ever seen this one before..

yup, tried staying away from RP 'crack'

but fell back on the 'R3VOL-needle' of daily YouTube-ing "Ron Paul" latest vids. LOL

I was actually looking of a full length video on Dr. Paul's recent... suppose on the 3rd of March, or yesterday's speech at George Washington University, and ran across this vid.

wonder if his new speaking tour management company have a 'no videotaping!' policy at his speeches...perhaps why vids are lacking. though, that never stopped us before;O)

For all the glory. It makes me feel bad he has repeated himself so long and we've still lost all that we have. He said all that about the patriot act and the NDAA too. Why country, why?

he HAD to have been one of the few 'politicians'

who actually made a public presence holding the 'evil blackrifle' before it was ever cool, or vilified!

always ahead of time!!!

AWESOME Find! RP even has a

AWESOME Find! RP even has a Tom Jefferson quote :) What was the "Free to Choose Network?

*Wisconsin Constitution* Article I, Section 25 "The people have the right to keep and bear arms for security,defense,hunting,recreation or any other law-abiding purpose"

I have to check who funds the org.

but as I understand it, it's based on Milton Friedman's 1980 book/PBS miniseries of the same title:

Thank you

If you ever go back to 1989, would you mind finding me and letting me know that I should flatten my hair down or else I may come to regret the style (and record of it) someday? ;)
