What Was Your Favorite Ron Paul Moment?

My favorite Ron Paul moment occurred during the 2012 debate in South Carolina. In the midst of a heated debate with Newt Gingrich about foreign policy, Dr. Paul evoked the Golden Rule and said that we should treat other nations the way we would want to be treated. It is somewhat ironic that those in the heart of the Bible Belt booed him for that. Unfortunately, many of the churches there have been hijacked by the warvangelicals and their erroneous eschatology. The Ron Paul moment in South Carolina really demonstrated the fact that the good Doctor was not concerned with political expediency or catering to his audience. That Ron Paul moment continues to influence me.

Yep

I was literally standing in my living room applauding.

Still hate on Carl to this day for that question, but WOW did Ron Hank Aaron the [expletive] out of that one.

Me too..

I broke my television because of this moment. It was censored in re-broadcast. I have not had a television since. Fuck Fox News.

'Peace is a powerful message.' Ron Paul

Any time he says

"THIS WHOLE IDEA..." because you know whatever words follow are going to be a mind-blowing truth bomb! <3 "In my first week, I already got rid of the IRS, so in my SECOND week, I'd get rid of the inflation tax."

When Ron Paul said "Just come home."

That was great!

Yes, that was great!

This goes back to 2007 Ron Paul supporters vs. one Guiliani

To me this encapsulates everything that was awesome and, at times, problematic with a Ron Paul campaign. But I'm not complaining---this was a wake up call campaign...

Hands down this was my moment....

When he totally pointed out the flaw the neo-con philosophy. Fox News in typical fashion cut this answer from the debate rebroadcast.

The SC debate, when he put herion into everyone's mind.

Mine was a few hours before

that SC debate when I got to meet Ron Paul and shake his hand and tell him we (my family; husband and two teens standing next to me) were praying for him.

He said 'Thank you'.

Got a picture with him too. :-)

You found my favorite moment!

Thank you for this post! It's scary to see that many so called Christians boo their Savior's own words, however.

There are so many of them. I really liked the way he stood his ground against Gulianni about blowback in 2008.
