what is his point exactly? the only purpose he or his supporters could possibly be serving is that of some hidden, or hiding, interest.

He is old, his career specialty is partially naked women, not law enforcement, and he apparently intends to spend his time as President conducting controversial social experiments on American institutions and policies just after we've spent the last 11 years at war with an enemy that still hasn't been fully defined and exposed to the light.



70's, Physician MD and not a police officer, three decades in national political office also. If you consider restoring basic personal liberties as "controversial social experiments" then, well, sucks to be you. Thanks to government operations like Fast and Furious along with big bank money-laundering and assorted other scams that enemy has been variously exposed. The perpetrators are corrupted agents and agencies entrusted within our systems which shun illumination.


where is that interest...why is it still hiding and why doesn't it come out and fight in the light?


Good question.

from my experience and from what i've been seeing...the ones that expose the corruption and the ones responsible for it are one and the same.

but I don't know much about how life on earth works. so, you guys will probably suggest and expect me to believe that Ron Paul is authentically exposing the problem.

people should take care in talking about what they know for a fact and then propose a solution to the problem. it makes them look guilty to some.

Paul is neither exposing nor causing corruption. By removing prohibitions it is eliminating incentive to corrupt. Corruption comes from those buying and those granting exceptions to the laws. no law, no corruption. Liberty does not breed corruption it is the antidote for it.

You are correct in that those who support and pass harsh laws are responsible for corrupting the system.

Key word in your statement, naive....you actually believe that he's in this for the sole reason of polishing his ego? Regardless if he wins or loses, he has opened many eyes that were previously shut. I, for one, have been an avid supporter of his stance for well over 24 years, first voting for him as the Libertarian Candidate in 1988.

I do have to admit, your story changes as posters add their dialog. Hopefully, with a little luck, in time your shut eyes will open.

Peace

Ron Paul 2012

Open Eyes? Rhetoric doesn't work here.

the question was not about how you feel about him, but how, if at all, he is related to Gerald Ford; the last member of the lower house to become President.

You missed my comment regarding your story telling....I can and will comment on my opinion & feeling, it's all I have. And yes, your eyes are shut....like I stated before, I have followed this man for over 24 years. I believe I can make an educated opinion on the subject. More so, than a person claiming he is not of this world?

Still trying to understand where a sitting VPOTUS takes over for a resigning POTUS has anything to do with Ron Paul, as a Republican Candidate for POTUS. Even if your story, "of the great take over of the 70's", rings a few bells, I believe it started way before hand and not by the parties you've pointed out.

But, that is a topic for another conversation......

Peace

Ron Paul 2012

its not an attack on your loser candidate, its a question concerning how is he like Gerald Ford.

do you ever plan on answering the question? if not, please stop posting.

and if you had ever been to Lake Forest, Illinois...you'll immediately realize that its as close to Eden you'll ever see...the road from Chicago that you take to get to it is even named Eden's Expressway.

don't grow old being a hater.

Anything around or near Chicago is not for me....The great white north of Michigan is my Eden!

Now, back to your comments....did you not read my post? If you didn't understand it, I was saying I don't get your connection between them....They're in no way close to the same regarding politics, with the exception of the R next to their names. Your story of GF being the subject inserted into office, by shadow powers from the USSR & Iran, can't possibly be connected to the campaign of Ron Paul, just to much history/fact to the opposite of your claim. The only factors I see you comparing are the assumed level of popularity/political influence, which still has me wondering?????

Not old and certainly not a hater....

Peace

Ron Paul 2012

the connection is quite clear and simple...

...they are both men who's primary federal political career was in the Lower House of Congress, when they aspired to the White House...i'm not sure I can make this connection clearer.

they differ in that Ford was House Minority Leader...Ron Paul couldn't even get that job.

its odd for people in his position to become President or even aspire to the office.

a normal situation in abnormal times would be:

a Senator, Vice President or Cabinet Member becoming President.
a General becoming President.

a normal situation in a normal time:

a Governor becoming President.

for what possible reason could someone like Ron Paul think that America deserves him?
