    I just post on 9/11 out of boredom but at same time try and keep an open mind. I don't know what to believe, but I find it fascinating how millions can be ignored with their convictions.

    What is happening to this country?

    Why is it so much to ask for a simple congressional look at all the compelling evidence....then this would shut up the truthers!

    Make sense? I don't see any major problem with a simple congressional evidence hearing to shut everyone up.

    I'm sure most the truthers would be happy to have some type of closure.

    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I understand what your saying but you have to put it in perspective.

    The government commits what I consider crimes everyday and more than 3000ish people are wronged by them every year.

    Why focus on that particular group if you feel that they did that?

    I'm not telling you to not to question it at all. I'm asking you to question everything they do. Focusing on one thing will get you no where.

    I find this statement quite ironic given your staunch support of an organization whose ideals originated from before the first century AD. Instead of making unsubstantiated blanket statements, why don't we try and find some specific issues we can discuss. I think that would make for a more stimulating debate, don't you?

    What was true then is true now, truth doesn't have an expiration date.

    Can you name something that is wrong with any of his positions on anything, other than appeals to the age of the notion?

    In the minds of classical conservatives, "New Deal" democrats, socialists, fascists, corporatists, elitists, and just plain pessimists, then yes he is going to come off as insane. When someone comes along speaking against facets of government dependent society, those who manipulate government for personal gain are going to do whatever possible limit their reach.

    Such entities employ lobbyists and seek political alliance with fellow "liberty leeches" aiming to confuse the populace. And many Americans frighten easily, especially when mega media figures are involved.

    What Ron Paul means to the mega rich is that they will have to be more competitive, AKA equal ability to fail.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    No, he's probably one of the smarter people to have run for President in this last cycle, especially on the GOP side.

    That said, he is a horrible politician.
