How can people wonder of his stand on church and state when he wants to legalize the now illegal drugs. The church crowd would never endorse this!
Paul can never be compared to Obama. Obama was a "flash in the pan". He came from no where and pressed into service to be a candidate by big money solely on his ability to act to a teleprompter.
Paul has been saying these things for decades.

The question is this. Has he been a sleeper to take stage in these times just to, once again, derail any possibility of true liberty and justice returning to the American Citizen? Then, post election, keep the status quo with the banksters determining the direction and destiny of this nation and its populace.

If only we could create an ammendmant to the constitution that would allow the union of states to vote on the internet to immediately convene a hearing of impeachment when they lie to us ............including campaign lies that would give me warm and fuzzies.

Of course, it's very easy to say a lot of things that you know you will never have to back up. That's another problem Paul has. He can get out there and basically say whatever the hell he wants, because he knows his ideas are never going to actually be enacted. And so long as he brings home the bacon for his district (which he does; your tax dollars are funding shrimpers represented by mr. Paul) they're not going to boot him out.

I suspect that his game will change a hell of a lot if he's ever in a position where he has to actually back up his positions; a situation that he hasn't been in in thirty years.

Presidents come and go but do they ever really change anything?

If they have I sure as hell havn't noticed.

They get your attention with riveting rhetoric and claims that they will be the catalyst for a better tomorrow, but in the end they're just the catalyst for another 4 years of stagnancy.

This is why he doesn't really do too well in polls;


Heh heh, I think you might be thinking of the wrong candidate.

He may be "huffing and puffing" because he gets a little mad when idiots like Matt Lauer try to backhandedly portray him as a loon. People just don't seem to get this about Paul, he actually supports freedom and the Constitution, you know the things this country is based on, but NO other politicians do, so when you hear Ron Paul talk it may sound crazy, because he is the only one doing it!

People in this country are straight up cowards, that is the reason politicians are allowed to get away with so much of the BS they do, because people are COWARDS. They want a mommy and a daddy. The government is not supposed to be a mommy and daddy. You shouldn't have to hear about the government, or see about them. Pretty much their only role is to make sure no states violate the constitution or the rights of the citizens, and to defend our borders. That's about it.

Yet, because like I said, so many people are cowards they want more than that. They want someone to hold their hand through life, and if a candidate won't do that, they don't like them. Look at all those dummies that were talking about Obama "OH I don't have to pay my mortgage anymore!" " We got a brutha in the white house, we're going to be rich in a few months!"

Even conservatives and republicans are the same way. They are little wussies cowering in a fear of "terrorists" that wouldn't even be bothering with us in the first place if we hadn't been destroying their whole world for the last 30 years. They want someone to take away all their rights and freedoms and tell them "everything is going to be OK"

Ron Paul wants to run this country how it was meant to be run. Ensure freedoms and liberties of the people, defend it against REAL threats, and then LEAVE PEOPLE ALONE.

Hopefully more people will grow a pair and stop requiring their president to hold their hand through life before they vote for them.

Ron Paul doesn't want to "legalize freedom", he just wants complete freedom to the states. He wants a state like Texas or Alabama, with the kind of state governments they have in place at this moment, to establish their own religious and moral laws and thats that.

Where does Ron Paul stand on the rights of states to legalize racial segregation and ban interracial marriages? These are good hypothetical questions to pose to Paul. We already know where he stands on abortions and "states rights". Thank goodness this man is the fringe of the mainstream, he never gets any more than 4% in the elections and thankfully that's the case. Mind you though, if he got elected, it would be an opportunity for americans to learn about the other side of fascism, the one called "libertarianism".

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.


The simple act of ending the drug war would have vast implications for the U.S economy. The idea that people could collectively flip the bird at the government in all areas and do what they want would increase poverty? Do the little people need to be protected from corporations because they are too fricking stupid to not shop/buy from offending companies?

Your post brings up so many questions.

To 'Legalize Freedom' is bad if certain people want to "exercise freedom" that is NOT socially acceptable, such as bestiality, etc.

He believes it's none of your business to say what others can and cannot do. You wouldnt like him because he doesnt want to force people to do things they dont want to do. Maybe vote for the Mac Daddy or Newt, your choice.

Alot of people don't trust Dr. Paul, but little do these people know that I have put him through the most rigorous test of all. A few years back I had the chance of meeting him so I acted quick, did my "ritual", hopped on the bus, ate some cookies....ate my last cookie by the security guys by the door. Then I stood in line and waited till it was my turn to talk to him, upon doing so our eyes met and we both cracked into a smile, not only that we both had to try to not laugh as we made our small talk. He passed my test with flying colors.

Sorry to break it to you but it's too late for this country to be fixed via elections. Ron Paul isn't going to do it. He could be the best guy who ever lived, and either he won't get elected, or if he gets elected he will be coerced by the powerful elite OR taken out by those elite. Have you even paid attention to the magnitude of crimes against freedom and humanity that are happening right now? 9/11, TSA, Gulf Oil Spill, Fukushima, big handful of wars the American people don't want. Mr. Paul's gonna fix that? Does he and his family have some kind of invincibility? He'll need it.

I would never vote in this corrupt system. I welcome another 4 years of Obama. That lying rat is what we need. Let things keep festering and getting worse and worse, because it's the only way the people will finally revolt. The people have to revolt by the millions, there is no other way now. Vote for Paul if you want but stop wasting time arguing about it. Start getting people informed so they can get righteously angry.

He probably does, but doesnt he want to legalize most drugs ? i know he want to legalize heroin, I remember a news anchor questioning him on it, as if he knew it would be a good smear question to ask haha, Ron showed that little b*stard where to go haha.

Im from the UK so unfortunately wont have any hand in your elections, but all i know is if we had someone like Ron Paul running for Prime Minister, i would happily go meet him and converse, of course i would make sure my eyes are sufficiently red before i go on this adventure.

Hehe if Ron was too that would be extremely cool lol


But its more likely he just knew that you were straight away & of course being the gent he is, hes probably endevoured into such things, No doubt as soon as he got home where the cameras cant see, he relaxed with a nice doob, He will probably remember you, what a great thing to have achieved, make sure you go and see him again under the same circumstances if you get the opportunity

Ron Paul is a soundbites machine.

His supporters eat his soundbites all day long because that is what they want to hear.

He is loved for what he says not for what he does.
He is all talk and no action.

Man I love Ron Paul, but I'm so sick of the media always bringing up the legalizing drugs and prostitution trying to make him look bad. I also love how they try to throw trick questions at him or make him look bad and he immediately has a great/smart answer and pwns them. America needs to wake up! Ron Paul 2012!!!
