Making America Great…Or Poorer? Dissecting The State Of The Union Speech

How did President Trump do last night? Lots of appeal to emotion. Lots of people to point to in the balcony to illustrate his points. But what about the meat of the speech underneath the decoration? Infrastructure spending? More militarism and military spending? Nukes?

Ron, what's wrong with officially bringing the private sector in for gov't projects, bringing it out into the light of day , if they are already controlling gov't contracts via K st bribery?

The fat guy doesn't get it. The girls were killed by illegal, criminal thugs, hence the need for border security.

To support the troops truly everyone should be fighting to keep them away from illegal invasions and wars they don’t need to be in. That’s how to support the troops and use the money saved from all these illegal wars to fix American infrastructure.

Love The Knowledge, Wisdom & Patriotic Passion! Just a Little Too Much Hm-Ha Analytics! Most People I Run Into Including Families Are Too Busy Just Trying To Survive Paycheck To Paycheck Therefore, They Just Want The Summary of The Information, Who To Contact For Positive Active Change Whether It's Congress Men/Women, Senators, Governors, Mayors, To Affect The Change Needed, Etc!?!

Trump has multiplied the swamp, lied about promises and is spending just like the Democrat he is in his DNA.  Remember Trump on the campaign trail saying that "Americans pay too much in Taxes" and how "I am going to get rid of Gun free school zones the first week I am in office" two of Trump's hundreds of lies.  Trump is more of a Democrat than Hillary could ever be and he is showing his real deficit spending loving colors without shame.  The truth is that Deficit spending is going on the shoulder of our children and Grand children. … Read more »

All sounds good BUT remember politicians /presidents are in many cases just puppets. The bankers/elitists are the real puppeteers. And also we see some of the facts – we do not know all the facts. Easy to have opinions and nothing wrong with it – but to make the changes is another thing. We are seeing now a the little glimpse of the deep corruption in FBI / DOJ / CIA etc etc. Look at the corruption being discovered in departments…. billions just not accounted for from previous administrations. So tell me how Ron Paul would have made this better… Read more »

Trump is placating the American people. What is really happening isnt even in the news. US threatens China because they are a reserve currency and beginning to make deals that threatens our living standard, which China is free to do. So we have a live drill in Hawaii and a week later show the world our defenses dont work, with failed interceptor missile launches. This is a set up, Trump continues central bank wars and will bring America to it's knees as the Bible says, "In one hour"

I'm glad I trust in Jesus-God to intervene when needed in ways we don't and can't.

The president talked about the mexican gang members who killed those unfortunate kids….but what about the kids in the middle east killed by american bombs and sanctions..? If you compare the amercan miltary to mexican gangsters…what conclusions can you draw..? Also the guy who was shot and made a great recovery…what does that say about the state of the union..? Too many guns in society…? or you should learn to duck quicker..?

Lol don't worry Ron.. When Trump's 12/21/17 EO kicks into effect just how many trillions you think will be scooped up?..

CEO's dropping like flies the world over??? January declared human rights/trafficking awareness Month???… Connect the dots Ron.. Your barking up the wrong tree.. Hope you change your tune abit when the memo's get released.. When you can see the real chess game playing out like

Mr. Paul and Daniel: Both of you are doing fantastic job. Alas, how many Americans (even 1%) are capavble of understanding, let alone digesting all excellent  points you are making one after another all along? No hope.

Ron Paul, you've been talking up a storm of abolishing the 100% ILLEGAL Federal Reserve Bank…put it like this…take ALL the wealth of Warren Buffett, Malcolm Forbes, Bill Gates, The Trump Foundation, The Clinton Foundation, George Soros, Oprah Winfrey AD NAUSEOUS…and COMBINE ALL OF IT and it won't be even a sliver of the toenail of even ONE, frikken' ONE Rotshchild Criminal Banker…why? They print MONEY (monopoly money) out of thin air and euphemistically call it "FRACTIONAL RESERVE BANKING" The US CONSTITUTION and the ILLEGAL Federal Reserve Bank: Article 1, Section 8, Clause 5 clearly states: CONGRESS SHALL HAVE THE… Read more »

I have to respectfully disagree just on principal. Obama spent years ripping our military to pieces, and decimating its core leadership. It desperately needs to be upgraded and rebuilt. I wouldn't be surprised if Trump can finally get military spending under control as well. Admittedly, military spending is probably still one of our biggest expenses, but it is one of the most important. The second protects the first, and our military might protects the whole ball of wax.

We are definitely getting poorer Dr. Paul.

No doubt about it..

The only people that have their heads above water, are people employed by the state, or government.

It's simply not a sustainable system.

Dr. Paul has consistently shown himself to be a libertarian who isn't fooled by Trump's feh bravado. If only prominent libertarians such as Tom Woods and Jeff Deist would do the same. Trump has shown himself to be just another authoritarian statist and there is no indication he'll grow out of this mindset while occupying the Executive Office. It's time for all principled libertarians to acknowledge this. Treat Trump the way they would any mainstream party politico.

Clearly we are on a path of a bubble and debt, but just to get immigration fixed we had to elect Trump !! This is because Jewish American Lobby's control our country!! I voted for Trump but for immigration and trade

I appreciate the commentary on the State of the Union but am disappointed that Dr. Paul and his side kick don't realize that "Guatamano" references in the speech; refer to those who will be imprisoned for treasonous activity during Obama administration. We're talking FBI heads, judges (I hope), Clintons (we pray), Podesta child trafficking cartel etc. Ron Paul you have done so much for this country but you're not in the loop regarding cleaning the swamp of evil swamp creatures that will be rounded up and tried by military tribunal, likely at Guatamano. I may be ahead of my time,… Read more »

Bruce Lee went around to the different schools and noticed everyone doing martial arts different. He asked why do you do that to the Teacher and they replied because that is how I was taught. Where ever Bruce went people were doing it wrong and only a select few could do it right and that was passes on to only those who could pass a test.  We live in a world of experts but everyone is doing it wrong. Why would you then seek their advice in matter? This is the great conflict.

The glorification of the military is what scares me the most about Trump. I like the man in many other ways but I find this particular thing truly frightening.

dr Paul, with all respect, and i appreciate some of your views, your babble in the other hand is why you are not president material and could not ever lead the movement Trump is heading – its always nice to sit on the sideline desecting every word and comment Trump makes. give some clear solutions to the problems you keep talking about? Did you ever thought of reaching out to Trump and working with him? I guess not.
