Prepare: get food, gold, silver and bitcoin, anything of limited supply.

Mary Williams

Yes Mr Paul, please do a video about bitcoin, the decentralized limited supply currency that gives freedom to all people and takes power away from central banks.


14 views is right liberty should be taken away its too dangerous with ISIS around. We need to be looked after by the government. Bigger Gov better Gov

The Graham shit pissed me off so much. Like a little bit of words are gonna overwrite hundreds of thousands of muslim deaths. Insanity


Thanks Dr. Paul, great information as usual

Hey cars kill a lot of people let's ban cars. Personally I think Trump is a Hillary false flag candidate, destroying republicans' chances for the WH. They probably wouldn't have a chance this time anyway with the gaggle of clowns that are running, but like everyone else with a brain and access to information I shudder at the thought of another Clinton presidency. I can't take Trump seriously with statements like that, if he were REALLY running he wouldn't say those things. Kabuki theater beyond the already made for tv drama that is American politics.


Ron paul is the only one who can make America great again, never better Said.

Trump is right that the internet is being used for evil . The internet was created by govt so at its core its flawed. The internet lets anyone post almost anything they want. The free market would have filters. A good analogy is a bookstore. Everything is vetted. There are no cyberbullies or massive amounts of porn or spam at bookstores because its based on private property. The internet is based on what govt wants, people power, which is communism.

I suggest that some of you read "Animal Farm" by George Orwell. Perhaps you will get the picture.

Is it unconstitutional to not allow muslims into america?


Why is it a natural consequence of libertarianism that it "brings people together automatically" "and it's unifying"? (4:48)

Wow. These two really need to wake up. First Trump said close down immigration and visiting until CONGRESS can figure out what is going on. That is not a restriction of liberty. The USA is not obgliated to let anyone come. plus, no one knows what is going on. So I now ask libertarians, how many people must die in america because you allowed a terrorist in because you refuse to figure out what to do about it. Libertarians say non-intervention. Great, because of non intervention, 20% of any people in syria will be violent pyschos trying to kill us,… Read more »

You started out by twisting his words and then used them for your own agenda. #Trump2016

Trump, sanders, or Clinton?
I'm going with trump.

Try as they might, they will never trump up a convincing case against Islam


I heard about Trump's internet control comments. To be honest, those comments concerned me far more than the Muslim comments. I have been concerned about him since he made the comment that Oprah Winfrey would make a great vice president. She backed Obama all the way. It seemed like a suspicious thing for a Republican presidential candidate to say. I have also been shown an interview he did with People magazine in 1998 in which he said that if he would run for president, it would be as a Republican. He stated that he could pull one over on them,… Read more »

Thank you Dr. Paul! I find the support for Trump to be worrisome in that he advocates government control over what needs to remain essentially free from control. He supports the Patriot Act. He supports the NDAA, NSA spying ….so what else does he think ought to be done? Outlawing free speech? What would he do to his political enemies? Trump is a dangerous person who uses fear and hatred to win support for his campaign. A true charlatan if ever there was one and who become a dictator, and a tyrant once in office. One other thing that I… Read more »

of course he couldn't be elected for pres. he makes to much sense!!


Well done, Dr. Paul! Scorecard: How Many Rights Have Americans REALLY Lost? How Many Constitutional Freedoms Do We Still Have?

Preface: While a lot of people talk about the loss of our Constitutional liberties, people usually speak in a vague, generalized manner … or focus on only one issue and ignore the rest.


It's the oldest trick in the book, dating back to Roman times; creating the enemies you need.

If a Muslim can not enter the country, therefore is not an American citizen therefore no liberties are infringed upon. I hate to bring up a simple and clear truth that the "libertarians" will not embrace.


Libertarianism > Authoritarianism

Only by rejecting authoritarian demagogues and fleeing to the principles of libertarianism can we be great again, because it was with those principles that the United States was founded, and improved, upon.

Trump's comments remind me of FDR's actions against Japanese-Americans during WWII.
