Couldn't find this video here on ATS. A lot of posts but no video.

If it is...Apologies.

If it isn't..Have a look!

Ron keeps getting stronger, is starting to gain more MSM time and is now not just on the fringe. I believe he is getting to be more of a serious contender for the race. I just hope that he gets his foot in the door at least.

Interestingly enough, it's mentioned that he will be 77 yrs of age if he makes it to the house and the majority of his support is the younger generation. Go Ron!

One more note...Why isn't Freedom legal anyway? Who made it illegal? That is the real question here. And why is it even a necessity to legalize The Constitution?

It's about time we vote in a President that looks ahead 10 - 20 years for change and not just 4 years ahead when it's time to get re-elected.

Ron Paul is definitely the person who is looking out for our future. I too wanna "Legalize Freedom".

Nice video .... I love SOME of his Ideals, not all. However, I believe he'll be more honest than all of the other candidates, making him my favorite choice.

I love Ron Paul and yes i am a younger generation. i feel like his campaign slogan should have been obamas, because obama didn't make much of a change just more drama in my opinion.

I agree totally...

Sadly most of america doesnt even know we dont even follow it anymore... Mainly cause they dont even know what it says...

Dumbing down of america at its finest... Just pound it in our heads we are free, and 90% blindly follow it...




None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free. - Johann Wolfgang

Ron Paul is consistently winning many of the polls. The MSM is refusing to announce them but there are places all over facebook with people taking screen shots of the online polls. CNN recently posted fake polls on tv with only 54 votes but their main poll on their site had him as high as 81%.

In addition, Ron Paul has won the CPAC two years in a row and then recently won the RLC poll in New Orleans. He has a very high recognition and is gaining more support by the day. Including many key supporters in Iowa, and New Hampshire. I think 2012 will be his year.

The most important thing we can do is keep putting him out there. Learn all about him, his views, his beliefs. Read Liberty Defined and his other books. If we want to save this nation, we will have to do it on our own. The corrupt and corporate owned MSM certainly won't be assisting us. As they say, "The r3VOLution will not be televised."

He may want to legalize freedom but the problem is........

MOST of Amerika doesn't WANT it!!!!
If he wants to win the election he needs to promise Americans that he will keep us safe!
Amerikans want safety and security not freedom and liberty.

It's all about knowing what people want and he is offering something people just aren't in the market for.
What a shame.

Rather than address the points brought up, he goes on a blather about "Hurf I want to legalize freedom, durf durf I want to legalize the constitution! I can't understand why ANYONE would question any of my positions!"

This is why he doesn't really do too well in polls; He's essentially a fundamentalist, his ideas are all unquestionably right, not becuase htye actually are, but simply because they're his. Many of his acolytes arre the same way - it's not so much what's being said, as who's saying it.

Another problem he has?

"Economic liberty and personal liberty are one and the same!"

No, they're not, Mr. Paul At least not using your definition of "economic liberty" to mean zero restrictions on corporate power, no taxation and no "welfare state." Under this definition of "economic liberty" we instead find a hugely stratified class-based society, a wealthy elite (including the millionaire Ron Paul) and the poor non-elites (including most of Ron Paul's supporters). Poverty is directly detrimental to freedom and liberty, and Mr. Paul's economic policies are tried-and-tested to produce staggering amounts of poverty for the majority, by siphoning their collective wealth into the pockets of the very few.

What a wonderfully cogent argument and defense Ron Paul makes for freedom in that vid. MSM is having a harder and harder time sidelining him.

He seems All American to me--in that almost sacred sense of what it once might have meant and dast we dare believe might mean again?

What a great question, and gets to the very heart of government and what their purpose should be. It is imperative the people come to understand the profound difference between law and legality. A "license to kill" makes it "legal" for "James Bond" to kill people, it does not make it lawful. What is "legal" is not necessarily lawful.

Legality is a tool created by the priest class lawyer set to subjugate the people. Legalese is the utterance of a modern day mystical incantation, and has the same weight and force as any other mystic and their incantations. Law, on the other hand, is not of the mystical world, but of this real natural world.

We the People have allowed ourselves to confuse legislation with law, but this is not so. Legislation is not law, merely evidence of law. If it is law, it is self evidently so. If it requires explanation this is the first sign that legislation is not law.

Unalienable rights are law. Any legislation enacted in the pursuance of protecting a right, or rights is lawful legislation. Any legislation enacted that violates rights is unlawful. This is the simple aspect of legislation, however and unfortunately, government is not this simple. Not all legislation has to reflect law in order to be lawful. The Bill of Rights are acts of legislation rooted in law. The so called "illicit drug" acts are not rooted in law, and are arguably unlawful. Taxes are not rooted in law, but can be lawful, yet not always so.

Taxes are a necessary component of running a government, and for this reason legislating taxes, as long as they follow principles of Constitutional taxation, are lawful. Outside of the principles of Constitutional taxation, taxes can be, and all too often are, unlawful.

We do not need to "legalize freedom", we need to hold those who have declared freedom illegal accountable to the rule of law. There is no lawful authority that can make freedom "illegal", and such an act is itself, not just illegal, more importantly it is unlawful.

Nothing wrong with "legalizing" freedom. But Paul's problem is that he doesn't seem to want to do much to protect it from Muslim terrorists that want to destroy it.

Ron paul is just another puppet!

You all are treating Ron paul right now, as you treated Obama in 2008! You are treating him like some kind of "righteous savior" who will come and fix everything once he is elected!

So you elected your "righteous savior Obama" did he change anything? Did he fix anything? No, he did not.. He made things worse!

Do you really think ron paul is any different?

I really have a deep feeling in my gut that says Ron Paul will be elected, but the elite won't allow it and will force Obama back into office. I'm guessing another conspiracy theory at the end of the 2012 election

To be fair, most ATSers are treating Ron Paul like they treated Ron Paul in 2008. He was the anointed one back then, as well. Obama wasn't really much of a factor around here, since, well... Stormfront with Flying Saucers.

Obama came in saying, "I promise..." followed by outlandish claims he knew he couldn't fulfill. Comparing him to Ron Paul makes no sense. Ron Paul has consistently voted in favor with the Constitution for 30+ years. He is completely different in every single aspect.

One way he is different is that he has actually READ the Constitution. He has been one of the ONLY members of congress to oppose the elites and their banker friends. He stands against the Federal Reserve constantly and has often been the only one doing so.

Calling him a puppet is baseless and highly sensational. The only thing he has in common with Obama or any other politician is that he has to wear that title. Once you get past that, he's a whole different breed of person.
