    No One Says it Like Ron Paul

    This message was posted today on Ron Paul's Facebook status. I didn't know whether to attribute it to one of his speeches, or to some social media manager he has hired, or from some fan, but the way it is written makes it seem like it is from his own words:


    "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."

    Note: The above message was originally posted in short, one line statements. I have edited them into paragraphs for the sake of readability on this forum.

    He is not wrong. Individual Liberty is the cornerstone of America. This collective crap is just that, crap. Personally Ron Paul gives me the creeps, but his mind appears sound. Yes, I should be blind when voting, but damn it, our president can't look like a rodent and get respect from the rest of the world. maybe his son will be the next up-and-comer.

    Our current president is a rat. Ron Paul is a decent person. Have you seen Odumbfuckinignorantasswipe's ears?

    Yes, but rumpled suits, disheveled hair (what's left) and that rodent face do not a president make. While it shouldn't play a part in an election, it does.

    I hate to admit that you have a point, but you do. Oh well. Socrates himself said he was ugly many times in Plato's dialogues, yet he forever changed the Western world.

    It's a recent phenomenon linked closely with television.
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    While it shouldn't be that way, like they say...it is what it is. Ron Paul could very well be the embodiment of Jefferson, but his outward appearance overshadows his mind. I like his thoughts, his concepts and personally embrace many of them, but that is as far as I can go because I know that standing next to world leaders, he looks like an aging waiter in a bad suit.

    I could see him fall after one of his speeches. Can't remember exactly what he said but he messed up.
    Yes, I would have voted for him regardless.
