    His support here in NH is far far more visible than any of the Bush rump swabs!! I think he will surprise in a very big way. Go Ron Go!

    I saw him on Tucker today. You know what'll happen though, he'll get bumped from the debates soon with the hosts saying he doesn't have enough support, or cuz they want to concentrate their time to legitmate contenders. He's the establishments worst nightmare. Someone who's honest, and wants to shrink government. I wish he'd have run for governor of Texas so more people would know about him. I don't think some of his positions are realistic, but he is a fiscal conservative and I love that about him.

    He does push the envelope, but we need people to push the envelope more. I'm sick and tired of down-the-middle cowards with their finger in the wind. His proposal to eliminate the IRS might get him killed, though, if he were elected.

    That and his stance on eliminating the Dept. of Education. His views make him unelectable. I like a good portion of what he says, but he comes across as crazy to virtually every member of the 30-40% I always talk about. You know, the public retard factor people. :D

    sorry Flea... you wouldn't like a guy like Ron Paul... he's not "For privatization: 9000%" ... nor is he for policing the world for the benefit of corportate profit...

    Ron Paul might shake up the political "establishment" and his views of smaller gov't and less regulation are refreshing.. this may be viewed as a sign that people want something different.

    He'll shake it up no more than Ross Perot did. There are too many stupid people in this country that just don't get it. Plus, it's almost too late. On top of the high amount of retards we grow, we've already become to dependent a society. As has been the design. :mad:

    I think that's exactly what his draw is. I don't agree with a some of what he says (mostly his foreign policy) but I love him for just singing a different political song.

    Policing the world for the benefit of corporate profit is not one thing I agree with.
    Let's review Ron Paul on the Issues:
    Tax
    Way to much of my money is taken out of my paycheck every other week.

    Illegal Immigration and Boarder Security
    The ONLY right way to go about this whole situation. Secure the border and make it illegal to hire illegals. Make it so they can't get medical care, welfare, or any other benefit they come here for. Eliminate anchor babies.

    Privacy
    Another make sense topic in which he is dead on.

    American Independence and sovereignty
    This is not an issue I am particularly interested in, but I do agree with him

    Property Rights
    Agreed.

    Health Freedom
    Wow! He's right!

    The war in Iraq / Foreign policy
    While the war seemingly was pushed onto us with false information and the area is now more dangerous/unstable - we can't just give it up now.

    Life
    He has a way with words :cool:

    The 2nd amendment
    Stricter punishments for people who violate gun rules.

    Social Security
    Agree

    Home Schooling
    I like the idea of public schools... but at the rate the school system is falling, I'm thinking home schooling will be a decision I will consider when I have children.


    Sounds like he is pretty much for privatization as well.

    do you even know what the term privatization refers to, as it relates to basic services and foreign policy? i'm guessing you don't, because you've shown basically nothing here that suggests Ron Paul is for "privatization 9000%"

    how ironic you would say that... i'll take this lame response as evidence you really don't know a thing about what privatization means, nor what it's doing to western culture...

    He is the one smart guy running who is not bought by the elite or lobbyists.

    Not gonna lie, I've donated to his campaign.

    hell... even if the american people elected a potential hero like Ron Paul, some power circle within the illuminati wouldn't allow him to survive...

    i mean, who are we kidding?

    ... the Fed, a private bank, runs this country...
