The problem with Ron Paul in the Republican Party is that Christian Conservatives can't stand him because he believes in personal freedom - in which he allows people to do things that some consider immoral.
I wish him and every other person involved in auditing the federal reserve the best of luck.

Some don't like him because he says the Defence Force should only be used for defence..
I tend to agree with him..

I'm really feeling this guy. My concern is; If and when he is elected in the next election, will he really have the power to abolish many of these policies he votes against. Ultimately, is it really up to him? Great and valuable post. Thanks a million!edit on 13-2-2011 by sixneuproele because: typos
As Ron Paul talks about the failed drug war and personal choice, I feel it is important to drive certain points home so the average person "gets it". There is no crime if someone wants to jab a needle in their eyeball and poison their bodies. That simply does not have an effect on how I live my life and the choices I make. Many like to argue that with drugs comes crime because people steal or rob others to support their habit. Now that may or may not be fact, but we already have laws against robbing someone or stealing. Adding a drug charge does absolutely nothing.

I guess you're refering to TPTB's plan to reduce the world population. The Georgia Guidestones quote a figure of a world population of half a million people. But I'm thinking that number would be the people allowed to exist to supply the needs of the thousands of individuals worldwide who are 'members', so to speak, of TPTB.
Actually, it's half a billion people. Nobody has a clue who funded the Georgia Guidestones. It could have just been a wealthy eccentric who has nothing whatsoever to do with population control.
Either nature will wipe a good chunk of us out, or man will do it to his self. This planet's ecosystem's and many of our natural resources are far too out of whack to keep this party going on while keeping our numbers in such abundance.
Part of me really wants a revolution, like yesterday, lol. Another part of me empathizes with the role the ruling class must play to keep civilization afloat. Not to say that their intent is wholly benign, but overall I just think they're imperfect human beings like everyone else. It sucks being so damned torn between idealism and realism, lol.

It's not up to Ron Paul.
It's up to US the People.
Don't ever forget that. With Liberty comes Self-Responsibility.
