The visionary: Ron Paul
Question: Considering all spheres of endeavor, who would you nominate as Leader of the Year in 2010? Why?
Congressman Ron Paul should be named Leader for 2010. Congressman Paul is a man of character. He does not retreat from his opinion in the face of hostile opposition and corporate-controlled media's "ignore strategy," unlike the rest of the so-called leaders of both major parties. In April 2007, when Fox News hosted the Republican debate held in Florida, there was an effort to assemble an anti-Ron Paul crowd and twice he was booed for his non-interventionist foreign policy. This is a sharp contrast to the feelings of the majority of Americans, who want an end to militarism and who want to bring the troops home from Iraq.
Furthermore, bringing the troops home should not be seen as a retreat or surrender as some have suggested. Despite hostile crowds, Paul was able to make his points and perform well, and won the Fox post-debate poll. As a leader, Congressman Paul is well researched and versed in an array of issues, while also having an incredible grasp of the U.S. Constitution and its impact on economics, government and war. This understanding serves as a baseline for everything he advocates. He handily beat all Republican candidates three years ago in the debates--as a matter of fact, he embarrassed them.

Heard some TV Christmas greetings from the military. The greetings were coming from some 175?? countries. Now isn’t that a crock? Time to throw our world policeman badge on the ground and return to our borders.
"Maybe if I stand here long enough, someone will tell me what this sign means."
I like Ron Paul, he is my Congressman. He is pretty much right on most issues but occationly he’s way way wrong. As much as I like Ron Paul I don’t think he has the executive experience or the leadership skills needed to be president of the USA.
“Ron Paul: A Fudge-Packer in Every Foxhole!”
The guy is a frigging truther. I can’t support a fool like him. I also can’t support libertarians. The only thing I agree with them on is their support of gun rights. Other than that they are for open borders, gay marrage, abortion on demand, legalization of all drugs. They are more liberal than liberals.
I think we need Ron Paul no one else is interested in exposing the truth about the Fed.
Panic at the Princeton Club
The pervert Paul intentionally distorts the positions of the Founders in order to appease and give support to Islamic dictators and terrorists. He is a Code Pink type 100%. Besides his anti-American foreign policy positions he then goes on to vote for an un-Constitutional attack on our military based upon his perverted moral belief that homosexuality should be treated equal to heterosexuality.
But we thought it only fair to give him his due and explain what is going on. I'm talking about Texas congressman and former presidential candidate, Ron Paul.
Congressman, the rap is that you're a porker, that that a lot of pork, $73 million-plus, went to your district. Is that true?
REP. RON PAUL, R-TEXAS: Well, it might be.
But I think you're missing the whole point. I have never voted for an earmark. I voted against all appropriation bills. So, this whole thing about earmarks is totally misunderstood.
Earmarks is the responsibility of the Congress. We should earmark even more. We should earmark every penny. So, that's the principle that we have to follow and the and the responsibility of the Congress. The whole idea that you vote against an earmark, you don't save a penny. That just goes to the administration and they get to allocate the funds.
PaleoPaulie, meanwhile, apparently imagines himself living in the 1700s when he would no doubt have wanted to patch things up between the colonists and George III to avoid all that expensive, well, bloodshed, don't you know? Had he lived in later times, he would have gladly surrendered to the Brits in 1812, to the Kaiser in WWI, to Hitler/Tojo in WWII, to Uncle Ho in Vietnam, to the communists any old time at all and later to the Islamofascist lunatics. He is as anti-American as any of them and a liar on earmarks, right-to-life, marriage, and all the issues that really count other than military where he actually has the nerve to tell his despicable views against our nation and its military.
Didn’t cheat? Is that why he voted for Piglosi’s tax hike bill or the repeal of DADT? Is that why he cheered the hacker Assange on and encouraged him to continue his criminal acts?
cheat should be retreat.
need to stop freeping on my phone.
He just loves his redistribution doesn't he?
I wish PaleoPaulie well in his upcoming hearings on the Fed so long as he musters the uncharacteristic discipline to stick to the subject and that he be promptly and permanently severed from public life and attention thereafter as a lifetime achievement award for his almost unrelieved track record of being an eccentric libertoonian anti-American fool. His vote for fudgepacking in the military is only his latest crime against sanity and morality. Somehow, one has confidence that it won't be his last.
The major is obviously a delusional idiot and hopefully enjoys permanent residence at a nice rest home segregated from normal Americans who do not share his delusions.
