Ron Paul Discusses Today’s Election and What it Means for the Country

Ron Paul (the man who in a perfect world would’ve been elected president today) was interviewed on CNN’s American Morning show. He discussed the elections and what a new president will mean to our country.

Let’s just say it doesn’t look good no matter who of the two “evils” wins today.

Ron Paul: Without Bailouts a Bad Year; With Them a Bad Decade

Ron Paul gives a good overview of the real financial problems in the U.S. and the mistakes that are the bailouts in this interview on CNN with Wolf Blitzer.

“The bailout of Wall Street is sticking it to Main Street”:

McCain: “Did I Mention that I Was a POW?”

McCain was on Leno recently trying to get a little attention for himself in the midst of the DNC. When asked by Jay about the numerous houses he owns his response was basically this:

Never mind that I am part of the financial and political elite in this country. I am above questioning and I am exempt from criticism because I WAS A POW!!! Remember? A P-O-W!!! I mean, come on people. Oh, and by the way MY WIFE IS CURRENTLY IN GEORGIA. Yeah, THAT Georgia — as in the aggressive U.S. puppet state that attacked South Ossetia a couple weeks ago with the assistance and blessing of our government.

What McCain did not mention here is that his top foreign-policy advisor is the Neocon Randy Scheunemann, who is a paid agent of Georgia.

Pat Buchanan: “Come to Ron Paul’s convention”

Alright, this was hard for me to watch all the way through. I’m already tired of all the false promises, half truths, and complete lies spewed during the DNC and I’ve only watched about 5 minutes of the PBS coverage. The high-point in this video is where Pat Buchanan notes that the Ron Paul gathering in Minnesota is the only convention where one is likely to hear any accurate, relevant, critical commentary on the current administration. It doesn’t seem to be coming from the Democrats. (With the exception of Kucinich of course.)

McCain = Bush = No 1st Amendment?

It’s good to know that John McCain and his secret service are protecting us against 61 year-old librarians:

Ron Paul Teaches Neocons 101

This video is amazing. In this speech given on the House floor in July of 2003 Ron Paul exposes neocons and their agenda in a very clear, direct and undeniable way. Republicans are currently wondering why their party is imploding — well here you go.

Wake up all you Fox News, AIPAC, Rush Limbaugh, Rupert Murdoch, Sean Hannity, Bill O’Reilly, Laura Ingram, Bill Kristol, Irving Kristol, Christopher Hitchens, William F. Buckley, Leo Strauss, John Hagee, Patriot Act, Paul Wolfowitz, John McCain, Richard Pearl, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfield, etc followers.

Those people and organizations are frauds. Your Republican party and your “conservative” movement were hijacked years ago by the neoconservatives.

Military Personnel Give Antiwar Candidates Biggest Campaign Donations

Ron Paul Gets the Most Donations From Military Personnel and Their Spouses, Obama Second

Airforce Times is reporting that Ron Paul continues to lead all presidential candidates in campaign contributions from the military (as he has since 2007). This is not surprising given the way military personnel (along with the rest of the country) have been lied to and manipulated about the reasons for the Iraq war and about the war on terror in general.

Support the troops — bring them home!!!

From January 2007 through March of this year, service members or civilian employees of the military donated at least $766,000 to presidential candidates, according to data made available April 20 and provided by the Center for Responsive Politics, a nonprofit research group in Washington.

The analysis included donations of at least $200 made by individuals who listed their employer as one of the four branches of the military — Army, Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps — or the Coast Guard, National Guard, Army Air Force Exchange Service, armed forces or military.

These donors gave the largest amounts to Rep. Ron Paul, the long-shot Republican candidate from Texas who has acknowledged defeat in the nomination process but continues to campaign, and Sen. Barack Obama, the Democrat from Illinois.

During the reporting period, Paul — a former Air Force surgeon who broke with his party to vote against the Iraq war — received the most military contributions, with $201,271.

That’s significantly more than the presumptive Republican nominee, Sen. John McCain from Arizona, who received $132,133 from military donors, according to CRP.

Wolf Blitzer, Ron Paul, John McCain and “Book Bombs”

Ron Paul appeared on CNN today with Wolf Blitzer and was asked predictably (how many times have people asked this question now?) if and when he will support McCain, why he will NOT support McCain (hmm, perhaps because RON PAUL IS STILL RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT!!! — not to mention McCain is virtually the polar opposite of what Paul is and what he stands for) and why he is still running for president. I think Wolf might have missed the “why don’t you run third party?” question this time though.

But you’ve gotta love this interview. The media still doesn’t understand why Ron Paul refuses to play the game all of the other major candidates do/did. It’s fun to watch the perplexed, confused media try to make sense of someone with a solid moral and ideological foundation who actually follows his principles.

Real ID Irony

Hillary Clinton, John McCain, and Barack Obama all recently had their private, personal passport information accessed illegally. They also all support the implementation of the Real ID (read my previous post that documents their verbal and/or Congressional support of Real ID). I guess they like having their privacy breached so much that they want to make sure all of us can experience it.

Ron Paul on CNN: My Campaign Continues

Will not endorse McCain, will not drop out of race:

What’s This ‘Iraq War’ Charge on My Bill?

McCain Makes Cheney Look Like Gandhi

Some wisdom (and sanity) from Pat Buchanan about John McCain’s policies…

Ron Paul MSNBC Florida Debate 1.24.08

The other candidates and the MSM are just flat out scared of Dr. Paul now, hoping to avoid having to confront him or be confronted by him because they know they always lose. No more half-witted attempts to make him look bad, no more strange cackling while he speaks, just avoiding eye contact seems to be their plan.

Total Times
Romney: 21:11, during 13 times
McCain: 16:00, during 13 times
Giuliani: 13:50, during 11 times
Huckabee: 12:11, during nine times
Paul: 6:31, during six times

John McCain was very confused.

And then of course there’s the strange “man behind the curtain” whispering to Romney, apparently the brains of the operation.

Ron Paul is Strongest Opponent of Real ID

The Real ID basically amounts to an illegal threat to our privacy, security and identity. The national ID card, potentially a forced replacement of your driver’s license, would track your every move, make you more susceptible to identity theft, and likely decrease national security. John McCain, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Mike Huckabee, Mitt Romney and Rudy Giuliani want to help the HSD implement it.

[Ironically Hillary Clinton, John McCain, and Barack Obama each have had their private passport information accessed illegally by contractors working for the government.]

Real ID watchdog group The Visible Vote 08 has praised Ron Paul for his consistently strong opposition to the Real ID Act:

“(T)he strongest opponent of the Act among presidential candidates is Ron Paul, who has taken every opportunity to warn of the creation of a national ID card and the threat to individual privacy facing Americans as a result of enactment of Real ID… Ron Paul is the only presidential candidate who has consistently raised the issue of the Real ID Act in presidential debates this year.”

Visible Vote notes that Republican candidates John McCain, Mitt Romney and Rudy Giuliani all support the Real ID Act.

Why is there not a bigger outcry against the Real ID Act? Some of the details of the Act finally hit mainstream news this past week, but its definitely not a new piece of legislation.
