Love him or hate him. Nobody is more genuine and not afraid to look bad or crazy. I'm sure the framers of the US got the same look when they brought up idea of America while in England.

Special interests, lobbyists, not liberal enough, not conservative enough. They need to appeal to their base. They need to go after this group or that one.

We don't have leadership in the US. We have American Idle. If I can be idle enough for 4 years and if nobody is paying attention or if the media doesn't ask hard enough questions, maybe,just maybe, I can get re-elected again.

The serfs don't care if my pension and health care plan is infinitely better than their's. They only know a couple of parties.

I admit. I have some residual cyncism from my dad a Vietnam vet. Even while in high school and we go on about the corrupt system.

We need more Ron Paul's. Younger Ron Paul's. Not the extreme versions but the smart and open minded ones who understand human rights and wise spending and individual freedom.

Good night and good luck sir.

"The number one responsibility for each of us is to change ourselves with hope that others will follow," Paul said, urging an end to two motives that have hindered U.S. society: envy and intolerance.

"I have come to one firm conviction after these many years of trying to figure out the plain truth of things. The best chance for achieving peace and prosperity, for the maximum number of people worldwide, is to pursue the cause of liberty. If you find this to be a worthwhile message, spread it throughout the land."

I'll be rooting for his son to run in 2016, but it's a shame Rand has already compromised on a few issues to appease the Republican establishment. It'll be interesting to see how much his prior decisions will backfire in future campaigns from the die-hard Paulites.

"Employee rights are said to be valid when employers pressure employees into sexual activity," Paul wrote. "Why don't they quit once the so-called harassment starts? Obviously the morals of the harasser cannot be defended, but how can the harassee escape some responsibility for the problem? Seeking protection under civil rights legislation is hardly acceptable."

Ooh. a quote that i won't agree with but because Ron Paul said it, I have to agree because I started a post about him right?

Re read what I said. We don't need the extreme version of RP, and believe me, he has said some outlandish stuff. I'm talking about more folks in Congress who just don't tow the party line and stay on the govt teet.

Save yourself time can't. You won't find anyting shocking or edgy about RP that many of us here haven't already pointed out before. Use that time you would have spent cutting and pasting and go outside or play chess with a 85yr old dude and get some new perspective on life.

Perhaps call some friends over and enjoy mojitos and Let's Dance 4, it is proly at redbox right now.

so why would the media report more on RP than the others you speak of?

probably because he has a built-in base of dumb libertarians and white supremacists who will consume anything RONPAUL is a part of

so the media that is all about ratings and ad revenue is appealing to libertarians and white supremacy groups? which are larger than maybe the rotary club in #'s?
