With all the above, I just plain don't trust the guy.

I am guilty of this during last election. I just took the word of what the MSM put out there. It won't happen again. I am doing my homework. I suggest everyone else do the same.

I know you are trolling with this.. but if you are really basing your decisions on this you must be a kid and a misguided one at that.
First off, the first video you post is a lie (i know, sorry it's not as easy to tell when you aren't looking youtube in the eyes :@@ People are generally lying when they look to the LEFT not right.
They just made up those "facts."

Nice thread. Too bad none of it will get through to the Paulbots.
O-M-G!!! He's looking to the right!!! Even when asked a question like "are you electable" he looks to the right... a question that requires a simple statement and doesn't rely on facts or fiction, of course he wouldn't run if he didn't believe he had a chance at winning... how can you honestly believe such a response is lie? Your ignorance is blinding me. Ron Paul is one of the most consistent men on this planet. If that's the only "lies" you could find, from that one interview, then I would say he's a god damn saint compared to the other candidates. Why don't you try to do some "research" on them other candidates huh, and see how often they twist the truth?
A plane flight... they have no real evidence for anything else, and the one case they can supposedly prove was most likely an accident. He made a perhaps a few thousand from that at most... why the hell would he even bother?
2) Con Artist
Paul got paid twice for same expenses
What's with the question marks, aren't you sure of yourself? Perhaps when making claims like that you should back it up with something more than one damn image uploaded to image shack huh?
3) Campaign Fund fraud ???
5 million... HAHAHAHAHA... that's pocket change buddy!!! Take a look at Mitt's net worth. Even Obama is predicted to have a net worth of up to 15 million dollars. Ron Paul even said if he becomes the President he will take the average American wage... I highly doubt any other candidate would even consider such a thing. It goes to show he just wants to get in there to make a real difference, and "restore America now", rather than simply perpetuate the status quo.
4) Net Worth $5M+ a 1%er
How about releasing those tax records ?
That is by far the most ridiculous video I've ever seen. Everyone has slight slip ups in their speech every now and then, especially when they are in front of large crowds and under pressure trying to explain complicated issues in a hope that people might see why America is where it is. Why don't you try listening to what he has to say rather than listening to the small stutters he makes, and you'll see he thinks much more clearly than any of the other shills running for the Presidency.
5) Alzheimer's Disease ???
Are you still banging on with that crap? Why don't you join Fox News, I'm sure they would absolutely love you there. He didn't write those newsletters, he doesn't support those issues, and he has disavowed them so many times that people need to get the hell over it... that's all I have to say about this, because it has been discussed so many times, I'm simply getting tired of this nonsense.
6) Racist ???
7) Family Tree questionable
This is probably the most interesting and semi-legitimate point you've made so far. But this Peter Theil guy is the founder of PayPal, he's a serious venture capitalist and probably supports Ron Paul because he believes in a more pure unregulated free-market type of Capitalism, and he knows how much that will benefit entrepreneurs like himself. He also has more support from the military than all other candidates combined, but does that mean he supports invasion of other countries and undeclared wars? Or does it mean the military actually thinks his stance on foreign policy is correct?
8) Financial support $900K from Bildeberger Peter Theil
Seriously, if you think the guy is too old to be President you might want to go back to school and learn some real history son. He aint going to drop dead, this is by far the most stupid argument I have heard anyone make against Ron Paul so far. Why don't you check which other candidates refuse to release certain records. Obama took quite a while to release any version of his birth certificate, Romney refuses to release his tax records... and you're worried about a damn medical record?
9) Broken Promises
That isn't a point. Not that many of your other points are legitimate either.
10) Broken Trust
With all the above, I just plain don't trust
