Yes it is style over substance. Has been for a long time. Just the other day a local newscaster commented on how good looking either Santorum or Huntsman was (can't remember now). I was so disgusted that a newscaster would say something like that.

So there you go. If you aren't good looking don't run. I am all for Ron Paul. I don't intend to spend time with the president so I really don't care what they look like. Apparently there are those that do care. Maybe they fantasize I don't know.

Exactly, unfortunately voters go for the person they like, the person who entertains them, is funny or interesting or handsome.
If a person of substance, honour and truth does not have these characteristics, forget about it.

EX: Mitt Romney- He's handsome and speaks well about crap that people want to hear.

Ron Paul- He's old and speaks well about truth that people who crave truth want to hear.

For whom do the sheople vote for?


A lot of Americans out there are uninformed voters.
In Canada that is 41% uninformed voters.
These people get all their info from TV, they could not bother to find it on the internet.

Ron Paul as Prez?
They won't allow it. It's obvious they (TPTB) are trying to prevent it.

Hence why we need to spread Ron Paul 2012 posters, bumper stickers..I actually plan on buying several large sheets of paper and writing "Ron Paul 2012 Taking Back Our Freedoms" and putting them up in public places. Also educating a person on him will help a substantial amount. If everyone reading this gets another to vote Ron Paul then that's another hundred or so votes.

Looking at this from the other side of the pond, I can't see how anyone wouldn't vote for Ron, but I also know, he cannot ever win. Too many powerful people will be effected, and they will make sure he doesn't make it

I believe Ron would be the best thing to happen to America for a very very long time. If he makes it, the world will have a much better view of Americans.

Ron Paul has my vote.

But I have to tell you something that does make me laugh a little.

In ancient greece, there always was debate about political types, meaning governments.
Although we know greece as a sort of cradle of democracy, this was not performed by them without advisement.
Aristotle put it on paper. He's probably the only scholarly person that did.

They actually, and generally, thought that the best form of government was a benevolent monarchy. And as they filter through the various types, such as an Oligarchy, an Aristocracy and the like, it might suprise you to discover that Democracy was next to last on the list with only a Dictatorship below it.

The concern was that a democracy could easily slip into a dictatorship. It was thought that over time as all the rights and complaints and conflicting laws would be created to ease this burden or placate that complaint that eventually anarchy would ensue which would set the stage for the dictatorship.

So here's the part that makes me snicker... It may be placed in Aristotle's Politics, and probably is, but the statement is made that the sign of the dictator would come from the dictator himself. He would be the one who would "guarantee and restore" the rights. (similar words) or straighten things out.

That is exactly what Mr. Paul has done.

It does not mean that somehow he will be our dictator as I think we already know better than that. It is an interesting anecdote to me.

People call Ron Paul a madman.

I know where Ron Paul is coming from, and I do too believe he is "the only voice of sanity left".
