Ron's comments on 'private' vs. 'public' use of drones

are spot on! It's one thing to protect your property, but the government is far more likely to invade someone's privacy or deny rights than anyone else.

"Hence, naturally enough, my symbol for Hell is something like the bureaucracy of a police state or the office of a thoroughly nasty business concern." ~~C.S. Lewis

Is it just me or is Ron Paul once again setting the highest standard of excellence in showing just how evil the people who are running this country into poverty are, with that reference to "ranchers" keeping track of their "cattle"?

Nudge, nudge, wink, wink.


when did

mustache get a radio show? and who the hell gave it to him?!

Thanks for the post..

I could not be more proud to support Ron. Jussayin.

Real leaders understand humility. Ron has that principle to a fault.

What a lucky country we have been to raise leaders like him. While the rest cheerlead the erosion of our rights, we have had the best teacher prove to us why our rights are inalienable.

Jefferson, Washington, Adams and Madison would be proud. Hamilton can find a short plank on a long walk.

In my entire lifetime I do not believe I have ever met anyone that understood the principles of Liberty better than Ron. I write this, having been raised by a proper Concord woman in a family of wealth.

I only saw my Nana get angry twice. One of those times was over the rights of the victims. The reason why I support the message of Liberty so much is because I believe it is the best and fairest way to level the playing field for everyone.

Dr. Paul.. thx man. I was raised in the philosophy you espouse. Thank you so much for sacrificing reputation, time and energy. It is my hope that these grassroots realize what is in front of them.

Dr. Paul is Libertarian to a fault. He never sought power or fame. Lest, his actions and votes. I pray that Rand wont screw us. Honest.

Its my personal belief that if the grassroots delivers in 14 that we can rally behind a pledge from Rand, based on principle.. that does not offer much gunpowder to the other side. (Notice that Maddow has been silent? Usually a vocal critic of Rand..)

If the grassroots truly understood the ease of their poweer.. it would be a cake walk.

'Peace is a powerful message.' Ron Paul

Rand fillabustered based on political principle

Like many of us, Rand is new in the GOP.. not as new as me, he's been a republican his whole life, me two years, but he's only held office for two years.. since 07 Rand supported Ron, then ran his own campaign and won, and is now using political principle to continue to win. Many here think of principle with moral ir ethical, religious values.. politics is more a chess board of both, like entering a labyrinth, or a pin ball machine.. and Rand is doing well.. this is exciting, and definatly not a cake walk.

What grassroots needs to understand, is that there is floor space at the conventions and people are looking for things to buy, especially if it's patriotic, local, and they have some time to watch a movie, or sign a petition.. the conventions are a great place to network, and as Ron Paul republicans advance within the party, this is about growing the Liberty movment within the party.. sell bumper stickers, videos.. Everything that P.A.U.L. fest did, the GOP can do for the Liberty movement. We're lucky to have Rand, but we need more than just Rand because for every Rand we have millions who HATE Rand, even among the Liberty Movement.

Ron's point about McCain/Graham is a good one:

"John McCain and Lindsay Graham get more Sunday talk show time than the rest of the GOP combined. They are the mouthpieces of the establishment (neo-cons)."

Take those two clowns out, and the neo-cons are done.

Rand's success is probably going to net Ron Paul a lot of positive interviews. Probably more than he had when he was running, ironically.
Ah, the idiocy of MSM.

Even Gerry Rivers (Geraldo)

gave Dr. Ron Paul a chance to speak and share his feelings about Rand's fillibuster without interrupting. About time we got some extended press coverage.


I miss Dr. Paul lately

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain

Ron Paul: "Bradly Manning I

Ron Paul: "Bradly Manning I think is going to go down in history as sending us a strong message, I hope we have enough sense to quit torturing him, he was tortured he didn't have a quick trial"

Geraldo didn't sound too happy with that answer.

Geraldo didn't sound too happy with that answer

I noted the same thing. But then again, Geraldo is part of the establishment - why should we expect anything different? But at least he gave "the man" the opportunity to speak.

Dr. Paul also said Manning

is effectively being charged with treason when what he did was an act of civil disobedience.

That was nice.

He had a good reply on Manning.
I don't know that nukes were the best analogy. Maybe we could ask some folks from Fukushima if nuclear power is wonderful.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Thats the problem

with nuclear power, where is a safe place for reactors? Hurricanes, floods, tsunami, earthquakes, landslides, tornadoes, and that doesn't include human error. I guess for as many nuclear facilities there are in the world disasters are pretty infrequent but it sure sucks if your in the fallout zone of one when things don't go as planned.

The bold effort the present bank had made to control the government ... are but premonitions of the fate that await the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution or the establishment of another like it-Andrew Jackson

Hey thanks!
