Fact: His action of staying there was based on his principled stance that the message that he's been sending out is more important than not saying it however, you didn't know about that did you?

While I may not agree with some of his positions, Ron Paul has more honesty and personal integrity than everyone in this group.

So he was upset enough at the "tone" of the debate? Where was his outrage at the audience when they were cheering for people with no health insurance being left to die? Or when they booed a gay soldier asking about DADT?
09:23 PM on 10/22/2011
Where was he? He was saying that people have a responsibility to take care of themselves instead of thinking the govt has to take care of everybody cradle to grave. FEMA anyone? You pinkos will spin anything. There is no other Republican that defends the rights of gays better than Paul. Main reason why? Because of his belief that we dont get rights as groups, but rather, as individuals.

Regardless of his beliefs....the disrespect was there....regardless of how you feel about a certain situation. If he thought his fellow campaigners were embarrassing...then he should've equally felt embarrassed and ashamed that his fellow men and women felt it appropriate to cheer for people with no health insurance and thought the base recourse would be death.

It seems to me...he's no more human than the ones in his audience.

For me, it was more like the British House of Commons and the VERY lively back and forth they get into. However, they are generally more civil about it. We just have less practice in this kind of active dialogue, and our only model is the talking heads on Fox and CNN who yell at each other.

I thought Mitt was a snivler and Rick a bully. Would you want either of them talking to Putin?

That kind of a move can win a POTUS election; I'm glad Paul didn't think of acting upon his late-to-the-show indignation. His ideas for our nation are as scary as the rest of that GOPpy bunch.

Oh yea how are Ron Pauls ideas scarey?

What did Ron Paul expect. They're REPUBLICANS!! They applaud the death penalty, death by cancer and electrocution. They deride compassion and laugh at poverty and the handicapped.These are the people he wants to lead into the future. -- Why not start easy and train to be Satan himself before he tackles the top position in the Republican party?
09:05 PM on 10/22/2011
Didnt the Democrats applaud the assassination of Awlaki? Murder of Ghadaffi? Same stuff, really. I think it's wrong in both instances.
09:25 PM on 10/22/2011
Touche.. Seems war is just fine.. as long as a cool black dude is running the show. Im amazed at how shallow the entire Democrat party and supporters are. Had Dubya bombed Libya there would be pitchforks and screams of traitor.

Bunch of shameless hypocrites. It just had to be said...

Maybe Ron Paul and other Republicans need to offer some advise to Europe. After all, the only thing that unifies them is currency (Euro), small central government, mainly state rights. World economists are saying these features are a fault, which I thought was a libertarian dream. I mean Europe seems to be a living laboratory for their government philosphies.

id like that. i think Europe is kind of how the Founders wanted the USA to be but maybe not that small of a central government. power to the states and the people but their should be more of a role to the federal government than what europe has.
12:30 AM on 10/23/2011
Except you're wrong. They still have fiat currency, and the fact that they are failing because we blew up the housing bubble which much of their central banks were tied to.

Ron Pauls a doctor, an avid bike enthusiest, and healthyer then most. This whole age thing is a really lame argument.

Ron Paul's supporters will impact in 2012 more than any other political group. They have numbers and loyal support. This support is not likely to dwindle because RP’s straightedge lifestyle and straightforwardness leaves little in the closet to blemish his status. If RP doesn't win the GOP primary, his supporters will write in his name, consciously NOT vote or vote for Obama.

Here's the evidence. Ron Paul has the largest donor base of any GOP candidate, 110,000 people donated an average of $110 to his campaign. Active military members donated more to RP than all the other GOP candidates combined. The raised more money than all GOP candidates except Perry and Romney. In the past week he raised over 2.7 million. Poll numbers indicate 10% of registered republicans plan on voting for RP. Many more of RP's supporters are not included in the poll numbers because they are not registered republicans.

So what? Just read the comments on any article about RP. Plastic men Romney and Perry and Pizza/FED Man Cain ect. will not be supported by this significant portion of the population. This may result in the reelection of Obama if RP doesn't win GOP primary.

You are right, and I am one of those who has no interest in voting for any of the other candidates myself.

On the other hand I don't think OWS is coming out strongly as a pro-Obama movement due to a reasonable amount of libertarian impulse there so the GOP may still win with weak Obama showing.

I really can't say that I care too much. Obama is bad, Romney is not any better and we'll probably end up in a war with Iran regardless with the way the rhetoric is headed. Perhaps this is slightly more likely under an R, than a D, but on the positive side at least if it's an R we'll have an anti-war left again whereas they seem to care much less when they have Obama as president.

In any case it's all a mixed bag unless Ron Paul wins the nomination. It's going to be all out war if he does because this will be the first real battle between someone who is really for limited government against the establishment. I look forward to it as there is no way it won't be more educational for the people than what we have going on now.

It's really education that matters more than anything, because the only chance for liberty in the long run is if people decide that Ron's focus on voluntarism is right and ethical in comparison to that which we have now.

Yep, that includes me. Writin in Ron Paul no matter who wins the GOP nod. I couldn't care less if that means Obama wins. No difference between him and Romney.

Obama has been a big disappointment to me especially with regard to education and civil liberties. But Paul is anti choice, anti union, has no commitment to public ed, supports expansion of coal, nukes and drilling and has an isolationist foreign policy perspective. I could never consider voting for Paul.
04:51 PM on 10/22/2011
Wait until Obama takes the next step in his bill to the Senate which will likely be tax deductions and/or incentives for any business that hires a veteran and even more for those that hire disabled veterans. Of course this will come with a surtax on any monies a person makes over a million dollars. Republicans are terrified of Grover Norquist and people like the Koch Brothers who have threatened to primary them if they support a tax increase on the wealthy. It will be a bunch of cowards pitting themselves against America's heroes and my money will be on the Republicans being too scared to pass any people to help veterans.
06:12 PM on 10/22/2011
The austerity committee is moving toward cutting Veterans benefits as we speak.. So, much like the jobs fiasco.. One Day reject jobs stimulus and the next giveaway at least 500,000 jobs to South Korea and India, The 537 will reject the Veterans package and reduce Veterans Benefits days apart.

Senator Patty Murray is strongly pro veteran. I think they are talking about FUTURE pensions and bennies, but the details are still fuzzy. I hope current vets are protected.

This must be the new corporate controlled nominating process. There's never been anything quite like this before. Does anyone else notice? We haven't even gotten to the primaries yet. Who's pulling the strings? Can anyone see why people who possess true presidential characteristics would shun this entire imitation of democracy?

I remember the same disgusting activities that went on during the democratic nomination process just a few years ago. Those lively debates, especially those between Clinton and Obama make these GOP debates look tame in comparison.
