While the mainstream media touts mitt as the "inevitable nominee" for the GOP Ron Paul has just secured victory in 3 caucuss states as GOP constituincies struggle to find a candidate who's name does not rhyme with shmitt shomney. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EfS1x5RnZZQ
I find it sad that someone who agrees with the viewpoints of any candidate is pilloried and insulted by others in these columns. The forthcoming election is simply going to be a contest between who can deride and sully their opponents more than the other. Free speech this may be but to a lot of people it obscures the real issues affecting ordinary people. All their concerns and worries are buried in a tide of negativity instead of presenting reasoned and rational discussion. I am well aware that this post is whisting in the wind and that nothing will change but if you can be proud of your country why is it that you find that youreself ashamed of the current level of political discussion wherever you look?
I support Ron Paul, as an H.R.Rep.,. because he's the one person
with a comprehensive platform seeking to end the Prison Industrial
Complex, reign in the Corporatist Military Industrial Complex, end
the FRS & it's bogus Ponzi Scheme debt based currency. It's the
movement he's spawned in which all his supporters agree with this
platform that realy counts, not whether he's elected to the Oval Office
or not. For the first time in 100 years We the People ( at least those
possessing more grey matter than fits in a thimble ) finaly have taxation
WITH representation. It's precisely because so many people recognize
these essential problems need a redress of grievances that means
more advocates of his platform will follow in his footsteps. I've read
the libelous shit remarks of those who'll never have anything positive
or constructive to contribute. We tolerate that kind of negativity as
it's ignorant, and should be ignored as the noise pollution it realy is.
I support Sen. Rand Paul's online petitions supporting gun rights
not because I currently own firearms. In fact I don't. But simply as
I know right from wrong. I support any Constitutionalist candidate
for that same reason. Don't like it ? Well tough shit for you. I don't
express my opinions to gather popularity. I didn't do that in high
school, and I won't do it now. For those Ron Paul detractors who
never learned they can't discredit the message by attacking the
messenger, and are now gnashing their teeth. Here's a suggestion
to put your teeth to better use: BITE ME !!! Article voted up, American Standard.
I encourage everyone to listen to ron paul actually speak
people on here make multiple accounts and try to make ron paul look
this or that it really doesn't matter the movement is strong.

You poor lost soul. Whatever will you do the next 4 years without your icon to worship?Oh, that's right , that's what he's preparing his idiot spawn Rand for. An old fool replaced by his nutjob teabagging son. Give it a rest , neither Ron nor Rand will EVER be President. Never,ever,never,ever,never ,ever.
my icon to worship? yeah "my icon"= a free peaceful responsible america. its sad that you think that just because ron and rand are related they are the same person they openly have very different views on key issues.
They're both liberterrorists and neither one of them have any regard for the Civi Right's Act of 1964. That's all I need to know. Oh , and there is this little fact that neither one of them believe women have a right to control their own bodies. It's kinda important to 52% of the population.
EVERYONE PAY ATTENTION
A."this law unconstitutionally expanded federal power, thus reducing liberty. Furthermore, by prompting raced-based quotas, this law undermined efforts to achieve a color-blind society and increased racial strife. " THE ACT ITSELF IS RACIST
B.WHAT HE BELIEVES ABOUT ABORTION IS IRRELEVANT BECAUSE HE BELIEVES STATES SHOULD DECIDE ON A LOCAL LEVEL NOT THE BLANKET FEDERAL GOVERNMENT
What he believes about abortion IS relevant!!!!! Any policy by any politician leading to the removal of a woman's right to choose and control her own body is relevant to every woman in this country. Your idiotic state's right's argument is nothing but another straw man argument. I'll be damned if I want states determining what my rights as a citizen of the USA are instead of the federal government. What IS irrelevant is Ron Paul, he lost , get over it!
how old are you? ron paul is not trying to control women's bodies in fact he is the only one pushing the opposite including the current president a states right to choose is not in anyway a straw man. you obviously don't know how government works because if a state had a right to choose then the individual voice of said state would be amplified and those who disagree would be forced to take part or leave. please from one human to another do some more research because i think your misinformed about the guy he is actually the most honest guy i have ever seen in American politics.
But turn on Current, you'll find Chenk or one of the other pundits going after Romney, as if the Romney has a following.....
It's total SHIT...
First off, no one in their right mind is voting for Romney, even the other republicans have constantly been distancing themselves from him, Obama would walk all over him in an election, if those were the only choices, and that's EXACTLY why they want you to think, that Romney is the challenger....
Secondly, it's Current, not FoxNews.... You don't have to tell Current viewers Romney is shit for a candidate, your viewers know. If your shows ran on FoxNews and you were trying to rescue my senile grandpa from insanity I'd get it, but to just turn on your "Politically Direct" shows it's instant insult to all your viewers intelligence, and a serious distraction to fixate on Romney.
Ron Paul will hand it to them both, and the parts of the mainstream media that keep denying his popularity can just go ahead and count their credibility as non-existent.... The more shows fixate on Romney, the more people with functioning brains will turn them right back off, sad I kinda like Chenk....
I want my country back!
I want that 4 minutes of my life back!
I want to pay no taxes!
I want no minorities!
I want MOAR!
See you guys are a lot of the same, I make a post and your brilliant comeback in nothing more than " I know you are but what Am I?"
You know what I want? HUGE, gigantic parmesan cheese containers.
I was going to post this. That Rachel Maddow (one of the few MSM personalities I still respect) must be a real dingbat lacking any and all intellectual capacity for not realizing Ron Paul was never in the game.
