I'm so glad we'er past racial bias and now have the truth.

    Don't think for a second that they don't have the same problem.

    Everyone - regardless of race, gender, color, sex, socio-economic background, education, or any infinite other number of qualifiers - is discriminated against. This is a fact of human life. Thankfully, a highly integrated and interdependent society frowns upon this behavior.

    Without hijacking this thread, the premise is that when Nixon closed the gold window in '71 he effectively declared bankruptcy for the U.S. government. At this point in time, the dollar was no longer backed by any scarce commodity and was simply declared valuable by virtue of being the legal tender fiat currency of the United States. Up until this point the overall debt levels were limited by physical assets backing up the IOUs. Now we simply declare an IOU as allegedly real money which it most certainly is not.

    That's not correct. As long as the money can purchase real tangible products i.e. gold, silver, timber, land, corporations, buildings, etc., then if functions as money. As confidence is lowered in the money, it takes more money to buy the same asset. That is why the Fed Heads, Treasury, Banks, etc., all always pumping "confidence" through the "Mighty Wurlitzer." It is a confidence game. Try that with your own money.

He supports the second amendment and as a gun owner I feel is a strong factor considering Obama and Romney's voting record towards gun control. He would bring the troops home and pull our troops out of every other country. We should not be policing the world especially with our economic crisis going on now. He is the only honest politician in the race. He stands for freedom and isn't a puppet for the large corporations as is Gingrich, Romney and Obama. I don't know about you, but I enjoy freedom and it is slowly being stripped of us. As for Santorum, he is a religious fanatic that would create world war 3. Who do you support and why?
    Oh great. Someone who actually support Paul's foreign policy. What an excitement

Why is it ok for us to do it, but if the people of a country go to another country and attempt to make it communist its not ok? Very hypocritical. The golden rule makes complete sense. If Iran had military bases over here we would be doing the same thing they are. As for his his electability, the caucuses being held are very fishy. Announcing winners before the votes are counted. Trying to steal Paul's votes. Turning the lights out as they collect the ballots instead of doing a public vote such as they have in the past. He has the most support of any other candidate including Obama from active duty military. I would say him not being electable is bs. Time for the media to give us the news not make their own.



    This makes no sense. I though your suppose to vote for who you thought would be the best president not against a party just because you don't like them?



    I'm just going to pray you are kidding about the 90% 60% standards.
    Great, a media conspiracy, then an approval of Paul's foreign policy.
    I can't understand how people in one country would want every other country to have the same chances as one's own. One should want what's best for that person's country, not just whine how other countries can't spread influence

    So how do you differ between those two? I am actually a nationalist.
    Tell me how wanting to give other countries an equal chance is being a patriot

    Are you naive enough to think that Ron Paul would not have an IOU to the Republican Machine that would get him elected? Do you actually think Politicians don't have to serve their benefactors. The Repubs represent the 1%. To quote Bill Maher roughly, " if you're poor and vote Republican, you're stupid." Seems clear to me. Paul's war policies, gold policies, and overall common sense ring clearly in my ears, but he'd be forced to change those stances by the Party Machine. You know, our politicians are bought and sold, and that includes Obama.

    I'm proud of the ideals which my country represents; I would not be a patriot if my country were any other. One of those ideals is a belief in human (not American) dignity, which war is destructive of. A war of true self-defense is the only circumstance where I will support the United States in wartime.
