      You are the product that gave us Bush and Obummer. Probably a Bluehair that never reads a persons Voting Record.

      Your about to be steam rolled by the Ron Paul Revolution to the likes of you have never seen. You will be outcast by Friends and Family as a traitor and ignorant. You will suffer the lasting effect from the fact you were on the outside complaining while your Countrymen sotod to be recognized as trying to right the wrongs and fight the Corruption and stop the Country from being financially destroyed.

      You will forever be kown as a COWARD among men and Patriots.

      Lead or get out of the way, little man

    Trump can run for vice president, and his ego can run for the presidency.

      I totally agree with Rep.Ron Paul. Isolationism is a great idea whose time has come. Only an ignoramus would disagree!!!

    Carol was just talking about Ron Paul and how he had introduced x amount of bills into Congress and only got 1 passed.. A poor record and how could he possibly get elected president ?? Probably the same way someone who only had served 3 yrs. can...

      Who is 'Carol"?
      And in my book, Ron Paul's ideas and philosophy being unpopular with his foolish colleagues Congress is a badge of integrity and intellectual soundness. Yes, yes MSF7, congress has been such a well oiled machine of wisdom and integrity that one would hope a presidential candidate would fit right in with those fine upstanding and brilliant lawmakers. LOL!

    Paul and Trump, the circus is alive and well. This whole "birther" thing is out of control, ridiculous. Simple logic says, that if a presidential candidate had something like 'that" in his/her past, it is 100% certain that the opposing party would "dig" it out well before anyone got elected. Trump=Paul=Clown.

    So, who's footing the bill for Rep. Paul's "presidential exploratory committee"? Jeez what a nightmare. But it does sort of make sense since Paul is a Texan... 😉

      You're equating Ron Paul with Trump? Obviously you haven't listened to a single interview with Ron Paul. Heck, check out his interview on the View the other day, they even asked him the birth certificate question.

      Actually, Ron Paul already has more money than any other declared candidate in his election fund. Where did he get these donations? Big Business?.. No. Special Interest PACs?... No. The GOP?... Good Lord, NO! He got it from individuals, small donation after small donation.
      What exactly do you have against his ideas? He is no "Birther". And you really need to check your credulity a bit. People in Obama's own party started the whole birther issue. .. and they were stopped cold by courts deciding they had no standing.
      So tell us, what is so bad about Ron Paul? We look forward to discussing issues.

    The Republican Party owes a great deal to Ron Paul. If it wasn't for him, the party wouldn't have half as many members under the age of 45. It's nice to think we might have the chance to vote for someone who answers questions honestly, and actually follows through on what he says.
