Ron Paul must win...

It seems a lot of people in this forum don't actually care for much in-depth, educated, thought-provoking discussion...more often than not it seems they want to take their trivial, sarcastic, partisan shots at eachother more than anything else.

Any fool that would cast his or her vote based on a youtube video ought to stay home on election day.

I won't vote for RP because I have looked at his stands on various issues, and I don't agree with most of them. Some youtube video isn't going to change that.

Good lord, the man wanted to issue letters of Marquee and Reprisal to go after Al Qaeda. Might as well patch up the USS Constitution and send her over to deal with the Somalia pirates. It worked for Jefferson back in the 1800's, so its bound to work today.

I'm getting just a little sick of this "If you dont vote like I do or believe what I do, you are brainwashed" thing.

You to will be assimilated by the Paulbots. Resistance is futile. :)

I am legitimately curious as to what stances Ron Paul has that people do not agree with? I would assume anyone that subscribes to the ideals presented in the constitution would by default be a fan of Paul, but apparently that is a misjudgement. What is it about Ron Paul that you do not like?

The ones that say lets all just withdraw into our borders and pretend the world does not exist anymore.

The ones that are all for libertarian freedom well except abortion and other religious things I like

The ones that would completely demolish our economic backbone just to see what happens.

Hello old buddy, I am back for a bit to the inanity of this site.

Look at it in philosophical terms. Everything in nature has balance. As a society we get exactly the type of leaders we deserve. Our slovenly populace deserves people like George W and Obama. Take that to a microcosm level of the individual.. If they actually supported Ron Paul they would have to take a look in the mirror. Do you think they want to do that?

That might give you a little peace.

So you think being the world's policemen, and spending trillions of dollars on giant, permanent, military facilities throughout the world, while bombing the crap out of brown people and westernizing their middle eastern countries is an essential need for America? Excuse me if this sounds crazy, but spending trillions towards middle eastern dominance, corporate exploitation of their resources, and mass murder just doesn't sound like the most positive manner to focus money and attention on. Wouldnt you agree?

Ultimately Paul believes abortion is murder, which is questionable, however he believes this arena needs to be handled on the state level. He doesn't believe the federal government has any right to mandate ideals along these lines across the board. I myself am pro-choice, but i am under the belief that everyone constantly reincarnates over and over again anyways, so whether or not you get aborted really doesnt matter.

It kind of frustrates me when these issues are brought up because compared to the vast amount of actually significant issues there are to discuss, this is an overall trivial area. Don't get me wrong, these things are important and I believe Paul giving the decision making to the states is correct, however there are so many much more important issues out there.

I hear this a lot. And what i find extremely ironic about it, is that our status-quo Federal Reserve/European banking systems already have destroyed our economic backbone. Once the Federal Reserve took over the show in 1913, we've been consistently on the decline, especially so with the purchasing power of the dollar. It's now worth 4% of what it initially was. So to say that Ron Paul's constitutionally-based economic systems would destroy us is absurd, considering A) we were much more financially stable last time we ran these systems before the Federal Reserve took over, and B) the current system is a house of cards.

It is a misconception that Paul is a libertarian. He is actually very much a constitutionalist. Funny thing is that Paul is a doctor, but he understands the Constitution infinitely more than all the lawyers in Congress.

Proof is irrelevant to people that want to believe lies. See my previous post. The people will always choose Barrabus. That is just reality, whether we like it or not.

Just join a Ron Paul meetup and do what you can. It is pretty fun.

This is ultimately what I believe too, and it is a shame. For the life of me I could not understand why a lot of people have such a mental block towards anything that isnt considered conventional knowledge. You could spout off facts and examples all day long, but for some reason they seem unwilling or unable to compute the information. But yes, coming to terms with this knowledge and seeing the big picture thats going on means they must change themselves in a variety of ways. For this reason is why i feel people will crawl back into their docile cave of comfort, which is so easily reinforced since most of the public has fallen prey to the system.
