Ron Paul is only a distraction for the young people to have hope for the next election. Unfortunately, the next election will not happen because we will be in a state of emergency.

@pacmink21 I can understand that. I'll leave you to make your own decisions on the matter.

Ron Paul/Dennis Kucinich — I've been thinking that they would be the only ones who could actually win that Citizens MIGHT be able to trust. The secret society ties must be publicly severed and/or properly denounced as an influence over The Public Trust before they are to be really trusted.

Ron Paul will not win the republican nomination. His foreign policy outlook is holding him back.

RON PAUL in his age is not after his future, the future of America and its young people is what he is looking after.his policies are all relevant and acceptable, not extreme in human viewpoint…fear of GOD is the beginning of wisdom, the eyes of wisdom helps to see things more clearly.

Finally the American public is waking up, and recognizing Ron Paul as a person who really cares about this country and the rule of law. There are no questions regarding his views, no flip flopping, NO LYING, no dirty laundry, no hidden agendas, no puppet masters, other than the Constitution. Young people need to get behind Ron Paul with the same enthusiasm that got Obama elected. Real Change…

@igotjuice007 As Ron Paul has stated, we are the policemen of the world, and we're broke. He is not an isolationist, he's a non interventionalist. And I agree, our military should be in the US only for defense, not everywhere else. The criminals in government who put sanctions on countries are the isolationists. Our military is being used as mercenaries for globalist invasions and occupations.

@eldubless – Yep. Ron Paul is the real deal. A sincere twit with convictions. Of course, Charles Manson is also sincere and convicted. Sure, let's go "states rights" all the way, where I can piss in the river that runs into your state and burn dirty coal to pollute the air that goes over your state. Heck, let's have states rights on owning humans, or allowing women to vote. Dr. Paul needs young voters – the reasoning part of their brains don't mature until nearly thirty.

Didnt Obama make shit loads of lovely promises before he became president? Wonder how much of what Ron paul says is rubbish… He has some strange ideas on Abortion too.. The Proof will be in the Pudding i Guess.

@felinefree The difference is Obama's record absolutely pales in comparison to Paul's. 30 years of the same message usually gives people a sense of security.

Ron Paul is surging because he's right. If people read and/or understood the Constitution, they would not be surprised in the least that he's gaining ground.

@felinefree By strange ideas on abortion, do you mean a sincere respect for life, never flip flopping on the issue. According to the CONSTITUTION, the Federal Gov. has no right or moral grounds to impose these kind of amendments to the Constitution. Yes is strongly against abortion, but believes it is an issue amongst the states to decide. I.E. the people, instead of 9 people on the supreme court. Nothing this man says is rubbish, sir. A little research and you will wise up

@47f0 You sound like the talking heads in the media. Chris Wallace said if Ron Paul wins Iowa it wont count. Then I guess the people dont count or our whole system of elected officials dont count. Just another sheep who refuses to wake up to someone that speaks the truth. You might not agree, but wouldnt it be nice to actually have HONEST and OPEN discussions about issues that affect all of us directly?

@eldubless No need to patronize, im not against Ron Paul. Iv had a good look at his campaign website.Skepticism is our friend, it leaves room for expectations to be met. The ideas on abortion made me feel slightly uncomfortable.The choice really should b left with the expecting mother, i just thought it was an odd topic to campaign about,putting it up there with economic and foreign policies?perhaps it is a cultural thing as im from the Uk, our politicians wouldnt talk about that kind of thing.

@eldubless – Funny. You guys who scream "CONSTITUTION" in all caps, like shouting somehow validates your silly ideas, have no clue about the Constitution – or just want to destroy parts of it you don't like, like the 14th Amendment. No state, and this is made clear in the Declaration, may selectively restrict a citizen's rights – including the right to remove a lump of tissue from her body.

@eldubless – and you sound you don't have a single damned answer to any of the points I made. Just as your Lord, Dr. Paul does, you just wander off to something else whenever you stub your toes on an uncomfortable idea that can't be addressed by just making vague statements about the Constitution" and calling people sheep. Like that's "honest and open". However, since I'm a liberal, I promise – Dr. Paul is the Republican candidate I pray to win the primary.

eldubless

@47f0 Good, please keep praying for that. Your comparing charles manson to Ron Paul and calling him a twit? You have already shown your intelligence level. I dont need to address your issues. Pick up any book by Dr. Paul and it explains his stance on all the issues.

Well who cares if he supports abortion why shouldn't those baby's deserve to have life how would you feel if your mom killed you

@eldubless – Once again, you haven't bothered to refute any of my points. Weird – but typical Paul behavior. If I had any use at all for a book by Dr. Paul, it would be to prop up a short leg on my desk to keep it from wobbling. The Charles Manson comparison is completely valid – both men have sincere convictions, and deranged ideas that would harm society – and both men have the occasional right idea – even a blind squirrel stumbles across a nut now and then.

@felinefree I agree about the topic of abortion. Unfortunately candidates are pressed on this issue. The Republican party and our elections continue to be hijacked by abortion and gay rights issues. Both of which are personal issues.

@47f0 So you think the Constitution is a harm to society? Charles manson? haha. If you really care quit being lazy and do your own research. Im not going to do it for you.

@eldubless – Hmm. Who's the lazy one here? The one making up extravagant claims for their messiah (while producing zero supporting evidence) or…
.
The Constitution is a little like the Bible or the Qur'an – usually least understood, and most abused by the people who shout about it the loudest.
.
The fact is, all you've got is some simple-minded talking points that you've been too intellectually lazy to think through, let alone present a cogent argument for.
