Ron Paul: Ship Politicians Off To Mars!

Dr. Ron Paul made a quick appearance minutes after Tampa Debate to speak to a cheering crowd at a local Tampa Pub near by. Which other candidate would do that?

Dr. Paul does this quite often - Drops into a local RP club!

I'll never forget him stopping into a huge nightclub (3 levels) in downtown Minneapolis after his "Rally For the Republic" speech in Sept of 2008.

It was about 12:30 at night and we had heard he might come by but were losing hope due to the late hour.

We were wall to wall in there - hundreds of people - and Stevie Ray Vaughn's brother was playing guitar in his blues band.

Then loud roar went up from the crowd and we knew there was a Doctor in the house!

He wandered through the appreciative crowd and shook hands for about 20 minutes.

It was one of the coolest things I've witnessed.

What a night - Actually what a great 3 days that was!

Win or not, I sense another such similar event brewing.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

Shipping pols to Mars is too $$$..let's just put them into orbit

For all eternity...

Less tax dollars there.

Yes, ship them all to Mars

Mars was the Roman god of war, and Mars's moon - Phobos - in Greek, means "fear". So they should all feel right at home. Great choice Dr. Paul!

Can we please get RP a bullhorn for the next debate?

I forwarded this video to my "email list"....

Thank you for this video and post. I sent it on to my audience who is forced to listen to my opinion lol. I couched it in the following:


I am glad he dropped the “isolationist” bomb in the debate!

The real “isolationists” are the one that marginalize countries like Cuba 20 years after the Cold War has expired. The real “isolationists” are the ones who, like they did to Cuba, impoverish their poor even more with economic sanctions and isolation....such as well, for starters, Iran?

Wanna start a trade war with China? (Trump’s naïve position). Wanna keep isolating ourselves from the rest of the world with sanctions, fear, and 19th century racism and prejudice?

Then just keep up the sanctions. Keep up forcing other national sovereigns to do what WE want them to do...as opposed to honoring their wishes. And keep on invading them if they refuse to comply.

Wow. There are three (3) count them three warmongering “isolationists” (hypocrites) on the platform in Tampa.

Only one, just like he has proven to be not the racist....but the anti-racist....and is also the anti-isolationist.

Hmmm. Meanwhile...at a local pub in Tampa:


Talks about the “mission to Mars” nonsense questioning in the last debate....and turns it around to saying “we ought to send some of the politicians to Mars.”

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

Note this contrast....

Contrast Ron Paul's security who smile with the crowd and even shake hands...to that Brown-shirt "security" regime of Newt who shove people out of the way.

Says something, no?

And Ron Paul is a form of the Fifth Element (though not nearly as hot as the original one lol)...but he needs to be protected.

Is thinking. Florida, Illinois and California

Ron Paul should campaign in, Florida, Illinois and California the hardest.. I think those are blue states he would turn them into Ron Paul states easily with his anti war and personal freedom message, Hell he could turn all blue states into Ron Paul states. Those red states are probably the major problems for him because the NEO CONS Are fighting him tooth and nail so much!!! What do you all think???

I think California definitely should be a major focus!

I've been thinking for a while that Ron could actually win California. So I agree, California is a must! Illinois is a big state and holds promise as well if we work hard. Florida will be tough but the crowd seemed to like him in that last debate; and from the looks of it, there's lots of support in south Florida as well.


Florida is actually fairly evenly split down the middle, it goes either way: 2000: Bush, 2004: Bush, 2008: Obama, our senators are split (Bill Nelson (D), Marco Rubio (R)), same with our representatives. Florida is a border state, not a blue state.

What a great man!

It makes me sentimental watching this tiny giant of a man talking in a megaphone to an exciting crowd of people. Never been someone who worshipped anybody, but as of 2007 this man is my HERO.

In my country (Netherlands) nearly nobody knows about Ron Pauls existence. I keep talking about him, but people think I'm somewhat silly. They don't understand the importance of Pauls ideas for people in the EU, where we are heading towards acceptance of the same terrible laws that have been ruïning the liberty of the American people during the last couple of years. They don't understand why their money isn't buying them the same things as it used to be, or why elderly people nowadays have to work in their old age to make ends meet. They don't understand that the core of their worries lies in the systems that Ron Paul so passionately tries to defy.

All of you are truly part of a revolution, not only in political terms but also (or maybe primarily) deep in the hearts of people. I admire and envy you all, and I'll keep talking about Ron Paul and spreading his message untill they finally notice him down here. Good luck, and thanks for reading.


Glad To Hear From You

..Does Jonas Fjeld still "rule" the folk-music scene?
I believe he's from Oslo, I have some recordings of him with Eric Andersen and the late great Rick Danko.
(Danko-Fjeld-Andersen; Ridin' the Blinds)
Thanks for spreading the word, you are obviously a "trail-blazer", and ahead of your time.
Not to worry...others will eventually join you.
Good Luck!

Ron Paul

I feel exactly as you do and I am in America. He is awesome and a very good and sincere man. I hope he does well in our election and I talk to many people daily about him to try and wake people up to the great Ron Paul. He is my hero as well and no matter what happens he always will be.


i am a youth pastor, so i come to ron paul from a very conservative side. the thought that gingrich is even thought of as someone to lead this country is ridiculous in my mind! stewart said it right: when gingrich started breaking the other commandments, it doesn't matter about the 11th. its just disgusting. we talk all the time about getting the older voters, and getting the young to actually come out more than 15-20%, but seriously...we need to show paul to evangelicals. if he ran a campaign more aimed at them, we could tie down the party easily. gingrich has had 3 wives (and possibly more than the affairs that we know of) romney is a mormon, which scares many many evangelicals, and santorum is just a joke. can we please figure out a way to prove to evangelicals that paul is the man to lead this country?!?!?

What is wrong with me

I must have a problem. All I do is watch Ron Paul videos and go back and forth between all the Ron Paul sites. I watch videos like this and I cry while watching. I've never been this passionate about anything in my life. I used to think it was crazy to see tween girls swooning over the Beatles or Bieber. Now I think I would probably faint in this man's presence.
I hope he comes to Chicago so I can shake his hand.

its called

RonPaulitis !! I've got it too !
there is only one cure for it, spread the message of Liberty and get Dr. Paul in the White house !

Dr.Ron Paul's 2002 Predictions

All I can say is ME TOO!

It is crazy to actually be actively engaged in a political campaign. It is crazy to have skin in the game! I have never felt so motivated and passionate about the political process. For me the past was just a series of talking heads all pushing in the same direction. And then ALONG CAME PAUL! He was absolutely right that once you awaken, you can never go back to the two party status quo. My deepest prayer is that can turn this country around from careening toward the NWO. I'm an engineer and built a career on the concept that "all the best solutions are the simplest". Well, to me THE CONSTITUTION is extremely simple. The ideas therein are timeless and priceless. We have a unique opportunity in this country that is paralleled by none other. It is time to dust off our liberty and exercise it! I will fight to the last breath to make sure that Dr. Paul is elected!

I never realized how much individual liberty I had lost until the day I tried to exercise it.

Couldn't Have Said It Better..

...Myself....Reading all these wonderful posts gives me a feeling of comraederie with all you people.
Guess I've got "the bug" too.
Ain't it GREAT!

He always keeps his word!

My wife and I (age 68) walked two miles to the Copper Top Pub to be near Ron Paul because he we trust him. Sadly, it took us to long to get there. Dr. Paul had come and gone. Thanks to Daily Paul we get to hear him after all!


Sorry you missed it. Thanks for your post. Just wished you could have seen him. I saw him in Ames at the Straw Poll. Drove from WI with my daughter. Best trip of my life!

Mars is too close...

...send them on the first interstellar trip to Alpha Centauri.

I have a passion for us getting to Mars, Robert Zubrin-style; but if the whole country goes off the cliff economically, of course that will put a major damper on things.

But it still is important for Dr. Paul to address how he would handle NASA...abolish it? Phase it out through attrition; keep parts of it related to national security interests? Some fleshing out of his ideas would be great, especially while he's in Florida.

I was thinking

that we put some of these politicians in a big ole cannon and fire it off toward the sun.

If we ship 'em off to Mars,

If we ship 'em off to Mars, we'd be polluting Mars! I think we need to ship them to the trash bin! ha ha

I officially want to die now.

I officially want to die now. I was supposed to be there but was really sick and somehow never in a million years thought that the good Doc would come to a pub past 11pm so I didn't go. I'm going to my hole now to die.

No No No, Florida_Patriot!

We need you. More importantly, Dr. Paul needs you. When you stop and think about it, the whole country needs you!

Keep on keepin' on!

awwww...feel bad for you.

awwww...feel bad for you. Maybe you'll get another chance! I had something similar happen. I first learned of Dr. Paul about a week or two after the big Tea Party day in 2007. He had just been to Nashville not long before to give a speech and I realized I was in Nashville that day!! (before I knew who he was).......I was bummed!! I've been looking for my opportunity ever since!

In 2007 I did go to San Antonio for a rally

then went to the Texas Straw Poll..It was an EYEOPENER..We had two / three buses of delegates locked out of the convention hall in Ft Worth..They were 10 minutes late..This is the world we live in ??????????????????????????????????????

Just one last kick in the nuts, then a final deathblow
