And a couple of other things its very interesting. He also comments on Herman Cains approach and rhetoric of blame yourself.



Ron Paul has always been able to break down a lot of the problems we have in a sensible manner. 2012 or bust right?

How can anybody hear this man speak and not immediately want to vote for him? He's the most sensible, genuine politician alive

lol how tacky of Wolf to ask who he would back if hes not the nominee!

Other than that, fantastic interview and Ron displays his eloquent ideas and manner. He did mention that entitlements are not in his playbook, and that pretty much says what he thinks about some of the demands of OWS, but he still seems to understand their anger at the Establishment.
I am hoping for a miracle...

Yeah, and you know what the sad thing is? If RP just LOOKED like Romney, he'd probably get the nomination- but only after the entire RNC was fired- cause RP is WAY too anti-establishment.

This country is encased in plastic. Plastic makeup, plastic people, plastic politicians. A matrix of EPIC FAIL due to pure greed.


Just history repeating itself. Another empire on the way down. And out. The worst part about history repeating itself? Everyone is to blame, and no one intends to make any course corrections. Except for the dear old Dr. Paul. May the Gods bless his soul. He tried.

I differ with some of the things he says. I fully support and see hope for change from OWS...

... but even when I disagree I find myself liking Ron Paul's methodological thinking.

He is absolutely the only one running that I can vote for with a clear conscience.

Good to see. Huge chunk of air time as well. What is it with other politicians, Newt in this case, not having a clue what is in the constitution, yet acting as if they're an expert? Getting into an argument with Ron Paul of all people, over the constitution is not a good strategy.

One of the differences between Ron and other politicians, is that he often talks freely about how not only does the government abuse its power and not follow the rule of law, but also how it effects, and will effect each one of us as our civil liberties disappear if it isn't put to a stop. No other politicians seem concerned, nor would I believe them if they said they were.

It's funny, with all the Ron Paul supporters on ATS, more people seem to parrot the likes of Glenn Beck and Herman Cain than they do Ron Paul.

You could be a Ron Paul fan. And for that alone be on this list , Ron.

This was a refreshing interview, and Ron Paul was able to clearly give some of his positions. One being that a Direct Democracy is not a good system.
Did you OWS supporters HEAR that? The Wall street protesters have been talking about Democracy this and Democracy that, and Paul says its just not the solution. He also mentions Keynesian philosophy too, because more and more that is the economic model we have been following. So when the OWS ppl say down with Capitalism, what they should be saying is down with Keynesian econ, because that's where this philosophy of spending us out of recessionso and depressions come from. The idea is to create more flow. When a recession hits, ppl hang on to their case, and that's why Bush said to go shopping, he wanted the American ppl to keep the flow going and not freeze up. He of course was ridiculed heavily by Americans, and especially Progs, but what did Obama do when he got in? QE 1 and 2 and now he wants GE3. Quantitative easing equals Stimulus of econ which equals Keynesian flow.
Everybody got that?
Maybe the OWS still want the downfall of Capitalism, but Keynesian doesn't seem to distinguish whether it's State spending or private sector.

Maybe Keynesian econ is a good tool for the NWO, because it sidesteps the traditional socialist/capitalist labels. Both Dems and Repubs can use Keynesian econ to their hearts delight, and the Fed just prints the money.

Ron paul "So i am not so anxious to say, yeah, its all your fault, if you want to be rich you can be rich."

Instantly the quote appears on the Developing Story bar: Paul: "if you want to be rich, you can be rich"

WTF CNN?!?!? How can the take what he said out of context and make it sound like Dr. Paul agrees with Cain? He said the exact opposite of what they quoted him as saying. If that doesn't prove once and for all that the main stream media is pure propaganda then nothing will.

So why won't Paul tell the truth about 911?. I don't trust him and neither should you. In 2008 you no doubt thought Obama was fantastic too.

Nope. Never supported Obama. Nice try though.. You'd have to be an idiot for the blatant media obsession over him not to raise suspicion. And I'm even from Chicago.. so I got a lot of $sh.it from friends for not being excited about his election.

You really think it'd be smart for Ron Paul to publicly question 9/11? Are you kidding me? Given his history of speaking out against the elite (and yes, he does have a history of doing so, naming names even, which no other major politician currently in office does), it's safe to say Ronnie has his questions and suspicions about 9/11.. but to make it known would be absolute political suicide. He's already attacked for his version of the Official Story, condemning our foreign policy. People already say he "blames America", and I'm sure he'll lose a spit ton of votes because of it. You should be happy he doesn't come out seeking 'truth' for 9/11.

I'm done with responding to the idiots who keep saying Ron Paul is no different than candidate Obama was.. It only exposes your lack of knowledge and research

That's why he's got my vote. I also think that income taxes should be greatly reduced for everyone across the board and sales tax be a flat tax for all states, the states getting a portion and a portion going to the federal government and I strongly agree government spending should be reduced greatly. Take home all our troops and close all our bases in other countries and tariff imports out the yin yang including those so called "American" companies making their products overseas and shipping them here. Make it less profitable to outsource, basically! I like Ron Paul for 2012, I fear if he doesn't get the nomination things will turn very bad very fast, and God forbid that Obama gets a second term, We can all say bye bye to justice then!

Because he'd be killed if he did.
Or dissappear.
Come on that'd be too easy to take him completely out of the equation if he did that. But if he got the the election and became President He may just do exactly that.
