The speaker in the video was displaying body language indicative of deception, so I didn’t watch more than about 15 seconds of it.

I know some very intelligent folks with like 4.0 college records that think Ron Paul is the answer, but this guy on the youtube vid is correct.

There is something scary about Paul.

I’m curious about Ron Paul, but not enough to watch a video of something that should have been written down, or at least made succinct.

Since you can’t see his full body or hands, how did you come to that conclusion? Just wondering.

Thanks! That would be me. Perhaps you’ve been watching too much Bill O’Reilly. What was it about my body language that was indicative of deception? Just curious.

Sure he’s a nut. But I would rather vote for someone who is wrong on foreign policy (but pro-life and conservative on fiscal issues) than an unmitigated and pathological liar who is wrong on MOST of the issues and cannot be trusted on anything he promises.

If you would like to defeat me on intellectual grounds, please do; however, stooping to personal attacks indicates that you apparently cannot.

Personal attack? No. Observation based upon your video. YOU rant about how ridicules it is for Ron Paul to be running, then make the statment that Ron Paul can win the general election. You contradict yourself, and profer a claim that is untrue. You’re a lunatic.

“YOU rant about how ridicules it is for Ron Paul to be running, then make the statment that Ron Paul can win the general election. You contradict yourself...”

OK sagacious one. I’m sorry if you don’t understand the basic statement that Ron Paul CANNOT WIN as a ERPUBLICAN because he has no chance of winning the nomination but COULD potentially win as an 3rd party candidate because he COULD possibly siphon enough votes from many different directions.

There are differences between the two contentions.

Your juvenile name calling is a Democrat propensity that is unworthy of this forum and unworthy of my attention. So I will say good night Soldierdad.

Me thinks you doth protest too much. But, that's not unusual with Paulbots. R-U-N Paul has a snowball's chance in Hell of winning, whether on the GOP or a turd party ticket. If you have to talk of "siphoning" votes, you've lost the argument from the start.

I strongly suggest you get back onto your meds. You're experiencing a heavy case of decompensation, with serious delusions.

If Ron Paul ran as an Independent, he would get my vote.

If that means I’m taking votes away from Mitt and obama ends up winning.....I could care less.

This nation will not change for the better with either of the two choices we have at the moment.

Hi, Scott, nice to meet you. I enjoyed your video, and I see some unfriendly comments both there and here.

Nothing wrong at all with speaking your mind, this is still a free country ...I think.

Personally, I don’t think Paul can win, because he lacks leadership qualities IMO. He kind of comes off as an old coot.

But I’m not sure anyone on the right can win to be perfectly honest. America just doesn’t seem to be producing strong conservative leadership, or strong anything for that matter. Seems like we are headed backwards into a dark ages or something.

I really, really fear an Obama second term. I think it would spell the end of America, so the best course of action I can come up with at this time is to vote for theperson most likely to defeat him, and that is you know who....blegh.

Not even sure we’ll get that far, or even if he does somehow win, I don’t think Obama will leave voluntarily anyway, in fact, I think we are screwed. I don’t know how the hell we got from Reagan to here, but here we are, God help us.

Anyhow, enjoyed it, take care, man.

What I have been able to discern about the Ron Paul campaign was that they are trying to build up political momentum & support over the long term. Consider also that a lot of young people are on board. This means that as they become adults the Paul campaign / anti-federal reserve / anti-war crowd will grow even larger. I see an eventual showdown between the big government advocates in power with these disillusioned but growing numbers of Paulbots while the rest of us will be caught in the middle. The huge numbers Paul attracts to his political rallies are frightening. This bodes for some rather interesting times in the coming political cycles... if Obama & the big government advocates have not totally finished off America before then.

Not only does Ron Paul look “serious” but all of his supporters are as well - that’s the real concern.

Slack off, sit down, and shut up. While you are sitting there in a s$%^-stew of your own making, try and think of another handle... Soldiers I have known and loved don't post as you do, even if drunk.

A fellow FReeper civilly answered a rather flippant and arrogant comment by you, and you come back with this? Begone.

"What was it about my body language that was indicative of deception? Just curious."

You put your hand over your mouth. It's a classic sign of deception. And just so you can see I'm not making it up, I've included a few body language links.

Hand over Mouth link 1

Hand over mouth link 2 w picture.

Still haven't watched the video, but can infer from the comments some of the content. Paul is a kook. Still, I'd rather have him as president than either of the two liberals. However Virgil Goode of the constitution party actually appears to be a good man, and is the way I intend to vote, unless the GOP somehow dumps Romney.

Give the poor schmuck some credit for finally mastering his webcam and editing software.

Otherwise, yeah.. he’s a loon with a dash of narcissism.

Oh, I don’t disagree.
I watched about 15 seconds and didn’t see anything but his face, so I was just wondering if further on you had seen something.
Very few people can control their body language, so many “feelings” are actually relieved.
Interesting links.

LOL. Sorry my nose itched. I know, when someone’s nose itches while they talk - it is a certain sign of conspiracy.

Civilly? Hardly! The sarcasm from HIS post to me was dripping off my screen. Shut up? Really? Wow! I don't think so. When I see someone who needs to be called out here on FR for being stupid, I will do just that. But, thanks for playing.

I noticed there that you made a huge assumption regarding my screen name. Figures. I'm not surprised in the least that someone who makes such an arrogant post to me in defense of the indefensible would at the same time make an "ass"umption. If you believe that there are NO soldiers who would call out the ignorance of the poster of this thread, then you can't know very many soldiers.

You are correct. He does bring his son dishonor by putting that on his tag line. His son would be better off if his father ceased linking him with the ignoble insolence in which he overtly enages.

I’ve got news for the two of you - my son, and most of those he serves with, knows R-U-N Paul for the coward that he is, and wouldn’t support R-U-N Paul were he running for Animal Control Officer. You two clowns can’t use my son in your obtuse attempt to support your crumbling position regarding R-U-N Paul. R-U-N Paul has a snowball’s chance in Hell of winning in any election for POTUS, whether running on a GOP ticket (which is ironic, since he’s not a Conservative), or an independent ticket. R-U-N Paul has risen to the top of his level of incompetence, and he will rise no further. Any spin the two of you can come up with can’t change the fact of this.

Question? Did you attend the same school of arrogance and narcissism that Obama attended????

That is quite a screed you got going for yourself... And I say yourself because, while it kept you out of the bottle while you cogitated on how to best bring forth this display of your mental processes, or lack thereof, it benefited no one else. However, it deserves posting again as an example of why one should not post in a fit of pique.

FYI, you son appears to be in the minority as a sizable portion of the armed forces like "R U N Paul." Secondly, post facts and comment on them, as opinions are like a**holes, everyone has one. Thanks for sharing yours and you can rest assured that I will give it all due consideration. Sincerely, can you now post the facts that cause this visceral hatred by you of Ron Paul? I have never contributed to the object of you hatred but again, sincerely, I am interested in why he arouses so much heated and negative opinion on such a paucity of facts.

You, like R-U-N Paul (who is NOT liked by a majority of the military, despite your lies), are old news. My opinion of R-U-N Paul comes from his blaming the U.S. for 9/11/01. My opinion of R-U-N Paul is rooted in the fact that R-U-N Paul would have the U.S. turn it’s back on Israel, our only true Ally in the ME. My opinion of R-U-N Paul is predicated on the fact that he’s for legalizing drugs. These issues are irreconcilable. Any moron who supports R-U-N Paul will be viewed in like manner. Goodbye.
