    @MarkedMan: I don’t like Al Sharpton or Sarah Palin but I do like Ron Paul.

    Top reasons I like Ron Paul.

    Legalize and reinstate Americans Constitution. Again. Ron Paul~

    20-years+ Experienced Congressman Doctor Ron Paul’s bill HR:459
    “Audit the Federal Reserve.” HAS passed congress by more then 2/3’rds.
    Objective: Stop the Federal Reserve from robbing us all globally further. Ron Paul~

    Quote Ron Paul: “The Constitution says gold and silver are currency.”
    We need to legalize the use of gold and silver as ‘a competitive currency’ to stop the FED and others from devaluing our dollar into oblivion.

    Non-intervention peace first military policies! Ron Paul~ Amen//

    Require Congressional approval for ALL wars. Ron Paul~ Amen//

    Ron Paul will also, Repeal the patriot act, indefinite military detention and/or murder of Citizens without a reason and without a trial. Amen//

    Ron Paul will also, Revoke Obamneys executive order signed 03-19-12 that states, the military has permission to seize our freed republic in any time of peace. Ron Paul~ Amen//

    Closing down all of, the illegal military occupations our republic has been forced to participate in, in the middle east. Including, and not limited to Afghanistan/Syria.
    While at the same time: OPENING the closed down military bases here so we can secure our borders properly and have more jobs at home. Ron Paul~ Amen//

    Void CISPA: Ron Paul~
    Federal Government spying. Illegal searches of private messages, e-mails etc.. CISPA pays companies like twitter, facebook, google, youtube and more to act as federal government spies seeking to censor and subjugate everything on the net, globally.

    Stop the Obama from using the 60,000 drone spy planes from invading the privacy of every day citizens like you and I. Ron Paul~

    Get social security out of the reach of the federal Government so they can’t spend it!!

    CONTINUE social security for all those enrolled.

    MOVE social security to private trust funds. Where the federal government cannot spend it.

    ADD opt out clause for first time employed, give same tax sheltered retirement savings accounts and let them invest it as they see fit. Ron Paul~

    Get the federal government out of education before no one can afford school or they force more deadly vaccines upon our students. Ron Paul~

    Parents are given valchers so their children can attend any school. Hooray!!! Ron Paul~

    Revoke the federal medical mandate and give that power back to the individual States so that the States can compete with each other for the best medical program! Ron Paul~

    Last but not least:::
    Ron Paul is human and can make mistakes form time to time.

    However, Ron Paul has the intestinal fortitude to admit when he is wrong and is honest about his mistakes.

    I believe, Ron Paul is the only Freed American Patriot left alive!
    Besides me that is.. -Smile-

    I am honored to be alive to witness the Ron Paul legacy of Freedom being born.

    ?May I have a moment of silence to mourn the loss of our freed republic please?

    Thank you for that brief moment.

    I would like to announce: GET THE OFF YOUR CHAIR!
    The party has just begin for the freed peoples of the Republic of the America’s to reclaim their Independence and freedoms for all, globally.

    @Live And Local radio NJ: You know, if you used just a little more bold and CAPS I’m sure that would convince more people to agree with you. Just saying…

    OK, OK, I’m feeding the trolls but isn’t attracting hits Paul-ites the point of posting about Paul in the first place?

  18. gVOR08 says:

    @MarkedMan: He’s got paragraphs. That’s something.

  19. Al says:

    I’m really kinda surprised that this is the first post to contain the word “sheeple.”

    If there is a time for REVOLUTION it is NOW! “LIBERTY” has been raped, left on the streets for dead and then raped some more, strangled and murdered_she’s DEAD_with her the REPUBLIC she dearly protected have been buried. Nothing short of a miracle can bring “LIBERTY” back to life and restore the REPUBLIC. But there is a voice that can summon her back just like Lazarus was called back from the grave by Jesus. When I listen the voice of the GOOD DOCTOR PAUL, I hear the voice with the POWER to bring back to life LIBERTY and RESTORE the REPUBLIC. Today more than ever we must rally behind Dr. Ron Paul and join the REVOLUTION if there must be HOPE for the AMERICAN and the WORLD. I cannot vote for Dr. Paul, I am a Filipino standing with the world joined hand in hand with the REVOLUTION.

  21. MarkedMan says:

    @dann rivera: OK, Doug, was this what you were going for? Because bringing this kind of stuff into the OTB community is the reason we can’t have anything nice.
