Many "rational" Obama supporters/Liberals that have listened to Ron Paul agree with him on Foreign Policy, the drug war and the Bailouts. But two issues seem to stem out or scare them away. One is Universal Healthcare and the other is the Civil Rights Act of 1964 that Ron Paul said he would have voted against. In the following video from Adam Kokesh Kevin talks about how he agrees with Ron Paul on the Foreign Policy and war but disagrees with him on Property rights and Universal Healthcare,
"Federal prosecutors in California are threatening to shut down medical marijuana dispensaries throughout the state, sending letters to warn landlords to stop sales of the drug within 45 days or face the possibility that their property will be seized and they will be sent to prison."
"The stepped-up enforcement appears to be a major escalation in the Obama administration’s bid to rein in the explosive spread of medical marijuana outlets that was accelerated by the announcement that federal prosecutors would not target people using medical marijuana in states that allow it."
The rest of the article is a the following link:
HELENA — A gun group and medical marijuana advocates expressed outrage Tuesday over a new federal policy clarifying that it is illegal for medical marijuana cardholders to buy firearms and ammunition and for dealers to sell these products to them.
Gary Marbut, president of the Montana Shooting Sports Association, and Kate Cholewa and Chris Lindsey, board members of Montana Cannabis Industry Association, separately blasted the Sept. 21 letter sent by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives of the U.S. Justice Department to federally licensed firearms dealers.
Natural born rights vs. the right to healthcare - Dr. Yaron Brook (from 'Capitalism Awareness Week' series)Submitted by emazur on Tue, 09/27/2011 - 23:37
Today's messed up medical system is a result of 40 years of government interference in the process. Regulations, inflation, tax laws, federal mandates to provide care through corporate-run HMOs, interference in providing insurance, massive subsidies and licensing have all played a negative role in the delivery of medical care in the United States.
Yesterday Ron Paul's rebuttal was featured in USA today to their editorial in favor of healthcare mandates. This was in response to his answer in the debate last week that a 30 year old should be able to make his own decision whether or not to buy health insurance.

America got a perfect exposition of the great progressivist myth in the September 12 CNN/Tea Party Presidential debate. The great progressivist myth is this: If government doesn't do it, then it won't happen. If the government doesn't do it, it doesn't count. If a person is against government intervening, he therefore must favor the ends the liberal or progressive claims will happen without government intervention. In short, the great progressivist myth is that you either favor government intervention, or you are an awful person who wants some horrible consequence.
You guys have to check this out. I can't believe it. http://current.com/community/93456169_bi-partisan-congressio...
Here's my latest video on Ron Paul and the great progressive health care myth: If government doesn't do it, it doesn't count.
During the debate, I thought Ron Paul's response to Wolf Blitzer's stupid question was an absolute pwning. So here's the video.
Ron Paul and the Progressive Myth Part I

A good friend, Winston, is days away from flying to Southeast Asia to begin walking 5,000 miles. This yearlong hike will be an ongoing fundraiser for icsfoundation.org, a charity that provides free cleft surgeries in the developing world. Guess where he got the idea for his marketing catch phrase? "What is Smile Trek?" Rather than lobbying the government for your money, this man is taking action!
This is actually an older article but I got in some discussions on medicine and FDA on other forums and dug it out for that purpose. But then it occurred to me to also share it with Paulites - some of you may have missed this and it's good to know. It's a great example of how FDA drives up our medication costs (I know there are many others but this one is well documented)
"This is pretty messed up.
Even though this all happened back in '08, the story of Republican candidate Ron Paul's deceased campaign manager is being revisited all over the media right now, because of its pertinence to Paul's current views on health insurance.
As a reminder, Paul's campaign manager Kent Snyder passed away three years ago due to pneumonia, and the man didn't have health insurance at the time of his death.
