Ron Paul 2012!!!

 

http://www.ronpaul2012.com/

 

I've long since been a fan, but I have a sneaking suspicion that Ron will "pass of natural causes" very soon after winning Iowa and New Hampshire... God I pray I am wrong...

Too many sheeple don't know who he is and care much more about some white trash mother killing her daughter and getting away with it.  Much more imporatant things like Justin Beaver to worry about then the future of our country and how Ron Paul could save it.

5 years ago I would have agreed with you, but I can honestly say that over the past 4 months I have walked passed over 10 people just randomly speaking about Ron Paul (not agreeing with everything, but talking about his positions) on the street.  MSM may not report this, but just think of "Common Sense" during the times of the revolution.  There is a HUGE underground movement of ideas that have taken root, and I believe that the people are no longer easily fooled... Of course I live in a big city, so I don't know how the rural folk are...

Wanklord said this exact same thing (word for word!) back on June 23.  See his comment #1396503.

He has only a handful of pre-prepared comments, and cuts-and-pastes them.  I've already called him out on this before with another copied comment of his.

To everyone else...JUST IGNORE HIM.  He's likely only a bored teenager looking to get attention.

Wanklord, let me be the first to congratulate you on a truly magnificent troll. The avatar pic, the name, and the post all work hand-in-glove to make for a most succulent troll.

Well played, sir!

@wanker-just like robot trader, you have to troll ZH to participate in social interaction.

 

My suggestion to you is to leave your shitty little apartment, go to the store or the mall, and try talking to real humans for once.

We Americans are not all as brutish and ignorant as you and your flying monkeys believe.  You and your Illuminati Master Race look down on we "useless eaters".   You have benefited from hiding in the shadows, but now the truth is spreading.  

No the global nation-less "Illuminated" Oligarchy ruling the US are the brutes Mr. Weishaupt.  They are the ones who involve us in unending wars, undermine our currency, infect our banking institutions , silence any mass media that tries to tell us the truth, trick us with easy credit, corrupt our government, society, religions, and political system.   You know what is brutish? Torturing and  enslaving people for your own amusement.  Programming and abusing people from when they are really little to break their will and don't question orders when they are adults. Performing unmentionable acts on innocents, all in the name of some fraudulent "magick" religion.  Killing people just because they speak the truth or get in your way.  Those are the real brutes.

And that evil brutish empire will be overthrown, and one day we shall all be free.

Frog, I've seen some of this as well and would love to see/hear more. The problem is the mixing of wackjobs like Bachman in the same conversation.

Anyone who thinks they know exactly how this all plays out is full of bull. (and this is coming from someone who's been accumulating the un-edible relic, so you don't need to give me that advice).

GOV CHECK SENDING process is computerized and SO COMPLEX/HUGE

that Social Security checks MAY BE IMPACTED by default...

no way for GOV to guarantee which checks go and which do not...

If he was elected he'd unfairly get all the blame for the inevitable crack-up caused by the policies of two-party rule over the last 50 years. Perhaps it's best if another R/D shill is at the helm of the USS Titanic when it goes down.

Too true. Is there any scenario under which it might be saved? Possibly, possibly. Check out Jim Rickards here - http://vimeo.com/18160394 - It may be too late for even the gold standard, and TPTB may realize it means a diminution of their power, but at least it can be no worse than what we have.

The government houses the lowest forms of humans.  They take money to look the other way, or even to blatantly defile the American people.  I would love for them (and invite them) to live the life of a normal American for a week or two.

They are disgusting things.

Sorry for hi-jacking your thread, F&T. But I have a question:

If his brother Wayne is right and the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is only a corporation installed to process the bankruptcy of the United States of America, then Ron Paul would be nothing more than another corporate whore, wouldn't he?

Please refer to this video, starting at 0:30min: 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IlCs7u1ihws

 

But maybe they just don't talk to each other enough. Maybe Wayne hasn't had the chance to clear up the true nature of things with his brother because Ron is so busy running for POTUS in 20xx. Maybe Wayne is a psycho. Maybe I just don't know a shit. Maybe you are me...

(Anyone looked up the legal/ancient meaning of the word "administration"?)

Need to get another drink and wrap up more of this stinky stuff...

Cheers,

D&R
