I don't know who has seen this but usual, good ol' RP dishing out heapin' helpins' of common sense from the constitution kitchen. I just thought it was interesting to hear his position around this time.

If only we had heeded his deep insight on Iraq. And to think, Ron Paul was willing to impeach the president over a $200 million war- ha! That's chump-change to Bush and Obama. Not my video so I don't know about the Osama clip but I find it also to have some interesting points.

Nice find. By the way, Ron Paul didn't want to impeach Clinton because of the money spent, but because Clinton had no constitutional authority to order those bombings in the first place.

But I'm nit picking. The video is great because it is simple and clear in its point: messing with people's countries and killing their people will make them want to hurt you back. 9/11 Q.E.D.

So Ron Paul wanted to impeach Ronald Reagan for his involvement in Panama as well? Just askin'.

That's a good point. I would suggest that he is staunch to the point that yes he possibly would have. I might be wrong but I think I've read although they were friends, he differed with Reagan's foreign policy. Reagan glorification really makes me nauseous.

Good find. As for him not wanting Reagan impeached, give us all a link. Was Ron Paul in Congress at that time. In what context are you talking. I would think one of the items he could have been charged with is the authorization of importing drugs into the US.

And Reagan was an asshat also. He was the first to plunder the SS fund. No way to destroy our economy if we have Trillions in money collecting interest. That was one of the first steps to destroying our nation.

Fair point, for some reason I thought he was in national office during the Reagan years. My mistake.

And after a quick search, I can't find anything about panama, but he was nipping at Reagan's heels about Libya, Iran-Iraq, and Grenada, so I can imagine he had the same opinions regarding Panama.

So I still think he's crazy, but at least he's consistent with it. That could be a campaign slogan, I guess. "Ron Paul: The Crazy You Know"

Ron Paul left the Republican party and joined the Libertarian party because of Reagan's policies

I think he re-joined the Republican party to try to reform/revert it back to the days when it was more constitutional.

Nice vid. Ron Paul is my favorite Libertarian in Republican's clothing!

However, impeachment under the current government structure is completely out of context because the same politicians and bureaucrats that perpetuate the hoax would be in charge of the impeachment process...

It would simply be them cannibalizing each other and only exchanging one dictator for another...the whole system needs to be replaced and all of the career politicians need to be removed.
