Tyler Durden's picture

Representative Ron Paul gets his opportunity to say farewell - providing a compendium of reality and liberty for all that choose to listen.. He begins: "My goals in 1976 were the same as they are today: to promote peace and prosperity by a strict adherence to the principles of individual liberty" and goes on..."economic ignorance is common place, as the failed policies of Keynesianism are continually promoted"... "psychopathic totalitarians endorse government initiatives to change our world" - live webcast

Ron Paul should never have been allowed to run as a presidential candidate. His extreme views on economics and foreign policy made a mockery of the presidential race. His embarrassing senile interjections during the debates were cringe worthy and detracted from the serious nature of the topics that were discussed. His clownish presence in the presidential race and in American politics has left a stain on our democratic process and has undermined our sense of national pride. Mr has legitimized a group of extreme right-wingers and conspiracy theorists that should never have received any media attention. Insane ideas like abolishing the Federal Reserve Bank or ending the war on terror have now become mainstreamed, emboldening ignorant libertarians youths to disrupt the political discourse of this country with radical and alarming ideas that threaten core American values. I hope for the sake of decency and morality that Ron Paul retires from political discourse for good so that he can no longer undermine the professionalism and integrity of our political process.

MDB, I guess you weren't watching TPTB-media, Ron Paul did not run for president.  Instead we were allowed the very significant choice between more of the same and more of the same.  Americans considered this issue deeply and decided on more of the same.

See the linked graphs for an explanation.

Ron Paul should have been the GOP presidential candidate. His common sense views on economics and foreign policy make a mockery of the power brokers in DC.  His interjections during the debates were spot-on.  His presence in the presidential race and in American politics has left a lasting impression on our flawed democratic process and has been (hopefully) gotten the attention of the uninformed masses.  Mr. Paul has fired up the libertarians who understand the real need for change in this country.  Unfortunately he garners little media attention because the 99% uninformed who are glued to their massive flat screen TV's are fed a constant barrage of idiotic programming that is rapidly sapping any semblance of intelligence in the masses who are glued to electronic screens.  Non-mainstream ideas like abolishing the Federal Reserve Bank or ending the war on terror have now become commom-place in the libertarian youth movement which will hopefully disrupt the political discourse of this country and get the 99% uninformed off their couches and away from their bags of fast food long enough to actually do something constructive to save what we have before the ruling classes own everything.  I hope for the sake of decency and morality that Ron Paul inflames the need for political discourse in the youth in this country so that real change can begin befor its too late.  

What he reallly meant to say..........

How emblematic that, at the exact same time as this, Obama's was having his first press conference of his new term.

The sun is setting. Sad day.

The American people didn't have the intelligence to listen to him, they were watching the Kardashians or some...

bobola.. +1

how can anyone listen to Ron Paul next to the other candidates and not immediately share his libertarian passion and frustration with the status quo.

"Insane ideas like abolishing the Federal Reserve Bank or ending the war on terror have now become mainstreamed" I assume this is sarcastic?

Insane ideas like creating a Federal Reserve Bank or starting wars everywhere have now become mainstreamed, emboldening ignorant generations to disrupt the political discourse of this country with radical and alarming ideas that threaten the core American values of individual Liberty and peaceful commerce with all nations.

MDB, maybe I am one of the few that really appreciates your very dry sense of humour!

don't think you own "decency and morality" over Ron Paul...  Your cause is to destroy liberty and hiding behind those two as your position is PRICELESS...

Chumbawamba, don't blame Ron for what was Karl Rove's masterpiece.

Karl Rove is a failure in every language.  Let the world know.

Did Karl Rove ever lose a presidential election?


I didn't think so ...

UN Agenda 21 ICLEI Sustainability Government Offices are located in almost every county in the USA. How is it that you can say this is a conspiracy theory? Or is your IQ just too low to comprehend this fact?

Find your local UN ICLEI office hear, pay them a visit, and get some video proving they exist;

More one-world government stuff.




The 'Birchers' (not birthers) were WAY ahead of you on this.


You're just another example of the latest in a line of un-educated (or minimally educated), self-styled conspiracy theorists looking for attention and fame ...


There used to be a name for that ... oh yeah: 'attention whore'. It seems to have fallen out of use lately though ... probably not PC enough.

I've tried arguing with some local ICLEI types.  You can't.  They're nuts. 

Why is it so difficult for sleepers to grasp that environmentalism is merely another vehicle for manipulation?  That "Global Warming" is just another False Flag?

They use psychological mind control on people to get what they want. Carefully chosen words and phrases are used to get you to do things that brings harm to you.

It’s a form of psychological manipulation, hidden meanings and hidden agendas contained within simple words and phrases. Many UN program agendas are labeled with comforting sounding names to get us to do what they want, especially when it’s not really good for us. In Agenda 21, the words “Climate Change”, "Sustainable Development", and "Smart Growth" are mind tricks.

The words “Climate Change”, are simply a Dialectic Mind Freek Magic Trick Word Game they’re Playing on us.

dialectic (Merriam-Webster)
1: logic 1a(1)

2: a: discussion and reasoning by dialogue as a method of intellectual investigation; specifically : the Socratic techniques of exposing false beliefs and eliciting truth

3: the logic of fallacy

4: a: the Hegelian process of change in which a concept or its realization passes over into and is preserved and fulfilled by its opposite; also : the critical investigation of this process

b: (1) usually plural but singular or plural in construction : development through the stages of thesis, antithesis, and synthesis in accordance with the laws of dialectical materialism (2) : the investigation of this process (3) : the theoretical application of this process especially in the social sciences

5: usually plural but singular or plural in construction

a: any systematic reasoning, exposition, or argument that juxtaposes opposed or contradictory ideas and usually seeks to resolve their conflict

b: an intellectual exchange of ideas

6: the dialectical tension or opposition between two interacting forces or elements
