    "Attention wealthy voters: You don't like Romney, you just like tax-shelters."

    Here's what people are saying about Ron Paul where I live. He has the best idea about what needs to be done with the economy and to shrink the size of government. But he's social issue's scare me. Then I think to myself yeah freedom is a scary thing we want it for ourselves but we don't trust others with it. I've noticed even the most conservative freedom preaching people get a glazed look come over there face and start back stepping when you talk about what true freedom from government is. If you want government out of your life then your going to have to let go of the nosy neighbor syndrome and let people live there lives as they see fit. The other choice is to keep doing what we been doing and thinking the way we been thinking and will keep getting what we've been getting. I do disagree with Dr. Paul on something he said "freedom is popular". I say freedom scare's the crap out of the most people.

    ".....Barry Goldwater Jr. asks Ron Paul rally if America is better off now than it was in 1964..." ---...See, I told you so...This party just can not catch up with the current time...they cling to some past version of America...And they will never come into the 21 century....Its really quite sad.

    @MongoAPillager The Civil Rights Act of that year? Oh yeah, Barry Goldwater Jr.'s dad opposed it after he supported it in the Senate and he lost in landslide..a lot of Republican moderates defected to the Democrats in the fall election....

    @MongoAPillager That would depend on where you really stand on things like civil rights and civil liberties, and, as Sonny pointed out, which century you live in.

    No matter what you think of Ron Paul, the truth of the matter is, a vote for him will not win the election, it will however take votes away from Obama, unfortunately. No matter what you think of Obama, do you really want the very radical policies of Romney?

    With Ron, Social Security and Medicare commitments to older workers and retirees would be honored, while workers younger than 25 would be given the option to opt out of participating in these programs. Would you make enough money to get something, or will you when you get old have to move in with your kids, because the cost of living went up & you don't have enough money?!!
    People friends don't let friends vote Republican!
    Also Ron is on Social Security so if it's good for him it's not for you!

    "With Ron, Social Security and Medicare commitments to older workers and retirees would be honored, while workers younger than 25 would be given the option to opt out of participating in these programs. " And those are good things, don't you agree? Major changes have to be made to these programs, yet many retirees and upcoming retirees are counting on both of these programs. Young people already know they will not get the benefits current retirees are getting so they should be happy to opt out. If I was 25, I sure would. Can you tell us what the democrats have proposed to solve SS or medicare?

    @IMAQT If the government didn't want more money from them than god things would easy up on the kids a lot. There the ones who are going to pay anyway, we pay now, they pay later. Well seems we all pay. Personally I'd like to keep most of what I make. Since I've been alive and it's been awhile, I've seen the same political idea's be claimed by both party's just passed back and forth depending on the election year. But the one thing that stay's constant is both keep squeezing just a little bit more cash out of us every year. Were going to have tame this behavior just as we would in a child . Spare the rod spoil the child. We are responsible for what they do. They do it in our names remind them it's we the people.

    @truthsayer In you keep what you make then what kind of safety net will you get when you get old & the cost of living goes higher.
    Will you move in with your kids & have them feed you or be the many that goes on food stamps. The money you save just gets lost in real life! You can't stop from getting old! Ron is on SS now, but it's not good your us?

    There are criticisms which contend that Paul's position is disingenuous because he often requests earmarks for bills that he supposedly knows will pass no matter which way he votes. For example, during 2007, he requested about $400 million in earmarks in bills he voted against.
    ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Political_positi... )
    More of a note of why you need to vote, instead of being sick of all the hoopla
    you might have in your town. You do need to vote to keep these people out.
    In the words of Forrest Gump "stupid is as stupid does." Stupid votes these people in!

    I don't believe it is disingenuous to add earmarks on bills you vote against after all, if a thief takes your money, are you wrong to try and get some back? The bottom line..if all reps votes as does Dr Paul..there would be no earmarks or deficits.

    Loved the Ron Paul speech. He's not concerned what some Fluffer that dubs himself David Hume thinks. God forbid the young people try to have a voice.
    Ron was in prime form and honestly having watched the whole thing there wasn't a huge booing area about abortion. It showed a clip about how Dr. Paul feels about the issue. Which is a moot point because he doesn't feel the Federal Government should be involved, he feels it's a State matter.
    Methinks the author of the article is trying to make Ron look bad. Out of fear perhaps?
    The only part that made me wince was the music. John Popper was horrid and Aimee wasn't much better.
