Ron Paul: A New Beginning

America is over $16 trillion in debt. The “official” unemployment rate still hovers around 8%.

Our federal government claims the right to spy on American citizens, indefinitely detain them, and even assassinate them without trial.

Domestic drones fly over the country for civilian surveillance.

Twelve million fewer Americans voted in 2012 than in 2008, yet political pundits scratch their heads.

It’s not hard to see why, though.

To go along with endorsing a never-ending policy of bailouts, “stimulus packages,” and foreign military adventurism, the establishment of neither major party questions the assaults on Americans’ liberties I’ve named above.

As my campaign showed, the American people are fed up. Many realized heading into Tuesday that regardless of who won the presidential election, the status quo would be the real victor.

GOP leadership is now questioning why they didn’t perform better.

They’re looking at demographic changes in the United States and implying minorities can only be brought into the party by loudly advocating for abandoning what little remains of their limited government platform and endorsing more statist policies.

My presidential campaign proved that standing for freedom brings people together.

Liberty is popular – regardless of race, religion, or creed.

As long as the GOP establishment continues to not only reject the liberty message, but actively drive away the young, diverse coalition that supports those principles, it will see results similar to Tuesday’s outcome.

A renewed respect for liberty is the only way forward for the Republican Party and for our country.

I urge all my Republican colleagues to join the liberty movement in fighting for a brighter future.

Looks more like the end to me.


At least the People's House of Congress isn't going to commit suicide anytime soon. I'll remind you the newly elected el Presidente's budget got zero votes last their's really no hope coming from there.

Staying informed, paying off debt, saving cash, buying physical gold & silver, eating a healthy diet and getting fit is the best way to maintain freedom and liberty.

The masses of clueless, obese debt slaves are already lost.

Bobola said it right.  His list of liberty doesn't include forms of self-destruction.  Self-destructive practices eventually lead to servitude.

The question is therefore, when does smoking pot become self-destructive?

Another way to think about it might be, why would anyone prefer anything less than perfect clarity and resolution.

Mr Paul..   Call Cozine before your committee.. And arrest him on the spot.


Until then..  Go fuck yourself.'s picture

If you guys are feeling especially militant then why not go the vigilante route? No balls?

Precious's picture

The world isn't changed by one-off, futile acts of violence.  Those who win, win minds.'s picture

So your fantasy in which Ron Paul singlehandedly wrestles Corzine to the floor of the House (and he could do it) is not really such a good idea after all?

Precious's picture

There is nothing vigilante about Congress arresting Corzine.  Do you know the definition of vigilante?  Do you understand Federal congressional powers?'s picture

So now it's not Paul's fault alone as implied above. It's the fault of Congress which would never support him in such an action. You're thinking a little more clearly now.'s picture

Can you refute the argument with an argument or can you only deploy derogatory adjectives?

Precious's picture

"Burp."  Does that answer your question, you disingenuous, fallacious, dipshit.

It's a bit late to be arguing don't ya think?...I'd be digging seret holes for your metal by now, if I were you....certainly not discussing who's right and who's wrong, that's a game for the ignorant.

Anyone can re-upload this video on Youtube, my account was terminated.

Some in the loser Romney camp are calling us "Paulqaeda".  I like that.  It's a combination English/Aribic word.

Paul Qaeda = Paul Base

The man certainly has a way of drawing attention to the issues, unlike a candidate who will remain as nameless. Imagine how engaging this election might have been with Ron on the stage. Oh, well....

As far as I am concerned you should STFU about Ron Paul. You blew the horn all over the place for the man but didn't have the balls to go to the booth and write his name down. You don't stand for Liberty, you stand for the convenient, and as soon as it wasn't convenient for you you bailed. On this topic I think you should fuck off.'s picture

Did Ron Paul write in Ron Paul?

fuu's picture

Did Ron Paul go vote for things other than himself even though he wasn't on the ballot? Did he vote for amendments, state races, etc? You didn't. You stayed home, and told other people to stay home.'s picture

Provide a citation in which I told people to stay home. If you can't do it you're a liar.

fuu's picture

"I could walk half a block and be the only one in line. No muss, no fuss, no waiting. But I won't. What would be the point?"

"Everybody knows that  the "none of the above button" is rebranded from time to time with names such as "Nader," "Buchanan," "Baldwin" or "Johnson." If I bothered to vote (which I won't) I would look for that button."

"The Ron Paul people who have infiltrated the complacency of everyday life are the ones who can make a difference. Rule yourself wisely and lead by example."'s picture

In none of those quotes did I tell others not to vote. Looks like you get to wear the liar tag.

Wormtongue, have you been caught bullshiting again?'s picture

Of course not. It's just the DTs. You should be used to it by now.

fuu does not lie.

fuu is clearly showing that the ways of Mordor are filled with lies and deceit.

or is the majority of our political agenda not based on stating a meaningless "fact" that in truth disguises the actual meaning?

your statements would only lead to not voting if followed by the masses.

therefore while possibly you did not state so "directly" your verbage was equal to such.

therefore, fuu did not lie.'s picture

But I never told others not to vote and he said I did. That is by definition a lie, even in Hobbiton.

And do you think that is all just a coincidence?  I don't.

Many agendas are threatened by the message of liberty.


Cathartes Aura's picture

"Liberty" is such a fine word, truly.

". . .and to the Republic for which it stands,

with LIBERTY and JUSTICE for all."


me?  I'm not content to use the word without accurate, complete descriptions of who is included.

and I'd like anyone ELSE who liberally uses the word to describe who gets "liberty" and who is exempt, and why.

if that's an "agenda" - then you can apply your label.  or your anonymous downVOTE.

not directed at anyONE in particular, just a statement reply.

NidStyles's picture

Who said anything about the Liberty written there? Liberty doesn't need to be defined to mean what it means, hence it being in the dictionary.


Your argument seems more focused on fairness and "equality" than anything. You would prefer everyone be a slave over everyone being free.

Cathartes Aura's picture

nice try voter.

it was deep sarcasm, but it grabbed a downvote, so I'm workin' the room  *nods*

example A:  You would prefer everyone be a slave over everyone being free.

Describe the scene in which Ron Paul arrests Corzine. Flesh out the role of each player on the stage. If you think it through you'll find that yours is the disingenuous argument.
