Glenn Beck is on fire today!

Holy crap.. I don't think they will let him go on much longer.. He's ripping on everyone. I think I have a man-crush on him.

Did anyone see the very end

Did anyone see the very end of his show last night? Chuck Norris was on and said he was going to line all the congressmen up and walk down theline with "Ron Paul." Ron will tell him which ones are corrupt and he will karate chop them. Seems like Norris is trying to drop RP's name as much as possible. I thought that was cool, then...

I watched Fox's Special Report on next and they named every CPAC speaker and person on the ballot EXCEPT Ron Paul. I hate them.

Actions speak louder than

Actions speak louder than words. Glenn Beck's actions over the past year shows me that he understands the virtues of free-market economics fairly well and since he shares very similar views to Ron Paul, I consider him an ally. However, that doesn't mean that Mr. Beck (or anyone in the entire world) could go back upon their idealism as anything is possible so it's not bad to want to feel guarded.

Nonetheless, I believe the statements that Glenn Beck is a "traitor" is a bit harsh and I am fully aware that Mr Beck made some ridiculous comments made about the November 5th money bomb and equating Ron Paul supporters as terrorists. I actually wrote Mr. Beck a couple nice letters (not denouncing him, but rather providing him the message of liberty) and I can see a change in him as he realized that there are very few Congressmen like Ron Paul who stands upon principle and follows his word.

In any case, please cease in calling Glenn Beck a "traitor" for I find him 95% the same on nearly all the issues as we agree upon and I think it's irresponsible to use that language upon people who are speaking the truth.

Also, the biggest rift between Glenn Beck and Ron Paul was the war issue. I attempted to communicate in my letters to Mr. Beck that Ron Paul isn't saying that we should just cut and run, but rather he's talking about the economics of war and that we are literally broke as a nation and will have to soon decide if we can manage an empire around the world or continue to spread ourselves thin until our economy collapses and we no longer have a choice.

The only difference betwen Rush Limbaugh and

Ron Paul is the war. That is a huge difference. That is what makes them Fascists. Don't you see that war is a racket and a tool to make govenment bigger and more intrusive? That is what makes them Neocons. That means Beck is still a neocon. Like I said, be careful.

Ron Paul or Glenn Beck?

Ron Paul is a OBGYN, 11th term congressman, I see a big dif tween Rush and Ron, but Rush and Beck? I AGREE.

I hope others heed your honest warning about anyone who has air time in MSM.. matter of fact, I just saw where FCC no longer has to give balance time to "the other side of the story".

Media is all about money and the media execs KNOW, Ron Paul won the election. No one had the support as Ron Paul. The trick for media is to profit off (the misery), not buy it.

You need to be careful here

You need to be careful here when you label anyone in support of the Iraq war as a Fascist. I think most people are either ignorant or unwilling to admit they are wrong. I was in that boat up until a couple years ago. When I first heard about Ron Paul, he was a breath of fresh air, but I had serious disagreements with him regarding the war. I supported the war in Iraq wholeheartedly as we were "defending freedom" and taking the battle against terrorism to them.

However, as I began to listen to what Ron Paul had to say, my heart was softened and I began to see that I had been utterly deceived. Now I believe that the war in Iraq was a tremendous tragedy on multiple levels. I am no longer for a strong military overseas. In short, I have made a 180 turn on this issue.

I was not a fascist when I held these views. I honestly thought that we were doing good, but the truth truly set me free. Just because someone holds that view does not mean their selfish. Sometimes it takes time for people to adjust to a different world view. Even though I was somewhat primed for it (for a variety of reasons), it took me several months before I was comfortable with Ron Paul's position. Even now I have occasional doubts, but they are growing fewer and further between as time goes on.

We need to be patient and show mercy to those with whom we disagree. We need to give them the opportunity to learn, grow and change. We may find that in the end, they will be the greatest allies we could ever want -- if we give them the space to try.

I hear you. I have the same

I hear you. I have the same story except I had a horrible feeling about the war but I just couldn't put my finger on it. When GWB said they attack us because we are rich and free, I thought, boy that sounds weird. So, I never heard of RP until a May 2007 debate, and it was like a ton of bricks hit me in the face, but in a good way. The truth shall set you free.

But I agree with you, I wasn't a fascist. You need to be patient and gentle because people have egos. They'll come around.

All I am saying is be careful !

Yes I am glad he is saying what he is. It is great to have someone in the MSM saying these things. But remember, remember, remember, remember, how Rush Limbaugh started out. He was mister consevative and everyone loved him, then he morphed into a neocon taking millions of conservatives with him and he destroyed the true conservative movement. He singlehandedly did more to destroy freedom in this country than anyone by hyjacking the movement and turning it into Fascism. He is the best friend the colectivists have. Do not forget where these people get their paychecks. It just makes me sick to hear so many people on this site making a diety out of Beck. All I am saying is, don't trust him. You will get stabed in the back eventually and it will set freedom back for decades if you identify the freedom movement with him. Watch out. Don't set anyone on a pedistal unless they are totally proven like our beloved Dr.Paul.

wow

I really just started this thread to tell people to turn on fox. Next time I'll try to record it. He was just ranting and raving about every single person spending money on pork projects. He was just complaining and ranting. I thought he was gonna blow a gasket.

Normally I don't watch Fox, but Glenn has changed recently and seems to think a lot more like I do now. He is now #1 for his time slot (5pm EST) from what I've heard. I am glad people are watching. I still can't stand that joke morning show Faux & Friends or pretty much any other Fox News show.

I say give Glenn a break and try watching him sometime. I've even written him and told him that I think he's doing great and I love his new show. I've found that I agree with him on most things and I am sure he's still trying to cater a little to the Fox base, so I take that with a grain of salt. 95% Glenn is right on the money.

I don't even agree with Ron Paul on everything, but I am willing to look over those little things because he is the closest politician to my views. Part of being a libertarian is having the freedom to have your own views and I'm just happy to have someone in the House that represents us.

Glenn Beck has given Dr. Paul a fairly decent amount of airtime to share his talking points and has treated him with respect, I don't have a problem with him.

You guys kill me

You guys kill me sometimes..."Watch out for this guy." "He talked bad about Ron Paul." "He's a traitor."
Is it not possible for someone to see the light? There is no changing huh?
The guy..whether or not if it is sincere..is spreading our message..Run with it..Don't dismiss it..Everytime someone said something against Dr.Paul we would write in or call in or something..Is anybody going to write in and say Hell Yeah Good job!! Or hey..better late than never...People bitch when everybody is against us and then bitch when we have someone with us...good luck guys..we're not going to get anywhere that way...He's had Dr. Paul on numerous times now..I think he's seen the error of his ways...You don't have to like him...But you can still use the hell out of him..I say to everybody.."I'm nice to everybody, even people that I don't like, because you never know when someone can come in handy.." It's better to have people working for you than against you..utilize any resource you may come in contact with..even if you don't like them...

Some Ron Pauler's Fear Success

And you've made an excellent point. We are going to find ourselves persuading people who used to be hopelessly lost. Why condemn it? Welcome it. We don't have to "trust" them -- just keep spreading the message, as RP himself would say.

Be very careful of Beck

He is the MSM. He shafted us during the election. Maybe he has grown but I think more likely he is being used by the NWO to gain our trust going into the next election cycle and then misdirect the movement. That is a very common tactic of the NWO. Don't fall for it!

Be careful of everyone!

Let's just distrust eveyone that ever said a negative thing about Ron Paul. That should greatly increase our chances of getting things done. NOT! if we do that then we basically only have ourselves right now. Yes peopela re waking up but they are not going to change overnight and we are going to have to work with them.

Glenn Beck and Lou Dobbs are the best there is in the MSM right now. I don't agree with them on everything but who does agree with everyone. But it amazes me that all we can do is sit back and complain about them or be sucpicous of their motives.

You're here for one day and

You're here for one day and you make a comment like this? I don't completely hew to the belief that you should gain credibility before barking at others in a forum, but in this case I'll make an exception.

Thank You

Oh Thank you for making an exception for my freedom of speech. I have visited this site often but never commented. Every Message board I go to either here or on C4L someone always has to bring up this distrust factor and I am sick of it, it gets nothing done. I voted for Ron Paul and Chuck Baldwin, does that gain your acceptance or do I need to prove more. My goodness, want to talk about freedom and liberty but then point out in your mind they have not earned the right!

Why just the other day here in KY before Rands announcement there was discussion of do we support Bunning. We don't agree with him on everything but he is not horrible. Then someone made the comment he said bad stuff about Ron Paul. We have to get over that or we will not be able to work with anyone and get anything done.

Agreed

This guy is not as honest as he would like us to believe.
Watch him embarrass himself while arguing with a supporter for the legalization of pot while claiming he's a libertarian. He's a total dick to the guy.

The Guy was an idiot

Glenn was trying to prove that the guys was an idiot, he knew what he was going to say.

The guy said leagalize so we can tax and regulate it. Is that what we really need more of in this country Taxes and Regulation.

If you are a libertarian you don't want tax and regulate something just so you can do it without being caught that's caveing into the system.

Glenn takes stupid people like this and makes them look silly for it does not help the cause to have a straight up dope head that essentially wants to go off prohibition just so he can be put back on it slowly by the government. If you want to present this argument make it about freedom of choice in this country to take responsibility for yourself.

The guy sucked at presenting the argument.

I disagree.

I saw that interview, and I was very impressed with the guy. He was able to present his argument, amidst the childish I-think-I'm-a-comedian remarks of Glenn Beck.

Legalizing marijuana is a very controversial issue, and what this guy was trying to do was coax others to reconsider the ban by sweetening the deal for its opponents. His solution was pretty lame, but what's lamer? Legalizing and taxing/regulating marijuana (I think that this is what Dr. Paul has even recommended), OR continuing the War on Drugs which has already resulted in hundreds of thousands of Americans being sent to prisons, and thousands of deaths in Mexico's gangland violence?

The ethical thing to do would be to allow for this compromise, and then hope that it'll extend into other areas of the drug war ending all of the silly laws on prohibition. People are dying NOW. Pick your battles.

There are some times when I really agree with Glenn Beck... but then there are other times when I just can't stand him. This was one of those times. He's just so fake sometimes. It was very reminiscent of the interview with Ron Paul and Bill Maher, when after Dr. Paul gave a VERY impressive argument for state's rights and legalizing marijuana, Bill Maher diminished the effect of the speech by adding "Sure, whatever, Stoner." What hypocrites...

Good points

This point here is what he should of tried to emphasize more.

"continuing the War on Drugs which has already resulted in hundreds of thousands of Americans being sent to prisons, and thousands of deaths in Mexico's gangland violence?"

You get people to see the human cost of the bad law then maybe they will accept the concept of a few high people. He did not do that well.

Glenn has a reputation of a sreious interviewer being comedic, Bill Maher has a repution of a comedian trying to be serious. I don't really think either are disengenous it's just their nature to be a wise a$$. Maher's show is meant to be a little funny so of course he is going to try and get laughs too.

We don't have a Democracy in America, we have a "Chuck-tatorship".

I thought that was funny.

NOW

We already lost the presidential election. Our sights now are on the future... the next steps to take to get things right. Whether or not they covered or supported him or us before doesn't matter. Most of us weren't supporters more than a couple years ago, Dr. Paul has been doing this for 30 years. We need the message, and I'll take Fox, Norris, or anyone else promoting the message and convincing people of the right side of things.

Lots of people are going to have to "flip flop" for us to win... Those of you who try to keep the "flip floppers" out... have no vision of what it will take to win... We will have to change MOST people's minds....

Everyone gets a fresh start every day with me

But until I hear Beck (or even the doctor) manage to spit out "ROTHSCHILD" I am not impressed.
TRUTH. We need truth. People are going to have to take some risks, risk careers, credibility, reputations, etc, but the truth has to be told.

Truth exists, and it deserves to be cherished.

Exactly. I didn't

Exactly. I didn't understand or even knew about the message of liberty until October 2007...

So we can't hold it against people for taking a little longer than us to catch on. This is an educational revolution. I'm still learning new things till this day about our history and the workings of free-market Austrian economics, so I can't hold anything against anybody.

you gotta take the good with the bad

First, why are you watching

First, why are you watching FauxNews?

Second, why are you watching the blow-hard Glenn Beck?

Third, why in the heck would you come on to the site and post a comment like that without any sort of link or article to back it up?

Glenn Beck has been really

Glenn Beck has been really good and had some excellent guests. Just check out youtube for examples. Obviously this doesnt mean that you should go watch Hannity and O'Reilly

Ventura 2012

First, It's "Fox News,"

not "Faux News."

Second, Fox has given more coverage to Dr. Paul and others will similar ideas than any other network.

Third, no comment.

The really good joke about "Faux News"...

Is that the word "faux" is pronounced "foe".

Not "fox".

If I walk into a room full of people who are educated, and drawl, "Hey y'all, I think somebody committed a major social FOX PAW", they will snicker at me under their breath and say "Who is this idiot from Texas?"

They put him on Fox now as a control. It marginalizes him and tucks him away from the majority of Americans. Everyone knows FAUX is a biased news station and only those that truly believe there is a right and left system watch that garbage.

It's a CONTROL to place him where a broader audience can still think of him as "kooky". Same for Peter Schiff.
