“There just really aren't any, are there? The answer is always, "Oh well that's bad, but I'm still voting for him." Makes you wonder how much they'll tolerate before they wake up.”

Please check this out REX 84 / fema camps was planned by Oliver North. The excuses they were created has changed several times. Now this was during the Reagan/Bush era. Iran Contra scandel later we learned the CIA was smuggling drugs into the US while Ronnie and Nancy had the Just say no to Drugs campaign going. These funds help support a revolution and helped build these camps. I did a lot of research about Iran when this information came to light, Please check out http://paulitics.yuku.com/topic/30/Iran-to-war-or-not-to-war-that-is-the-question You will see Papa Bush has had this game plan in action for sometime and carter clinton and Obama all have been playing this game of his. Also please note this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iDbnHrkT7Gg and see what americans are being told is not what it the truth .... go figure eh?
Now cxould the NDAA being signed now as a form of protection when americans find out and go after the government so they can lock up ticked off americans?”
“I'm curious...do you actually believe in the right of citizens to due process? If you do, then you might care to know that a certain candidate took a break from campaigning to introduce legislation to undo the NDAA bill Obama signed into law. If defending citizens' rights to have a trial in court (as per the constitution) represents an 'abysmal Congressional record' then I have to wonder what type of record you think is 'successful'. Or are you one of the folks who believes the more laws we write, the better off we are?”

“That you believe RP has a chance only shows that you're not paying attention... as for his policy ideas: they'd be a disaster.”
“I'm curious: as an Obama supporter (and I assume voter in 2008), how do you feel about his adoption of Bush's foreign policy? Maybe you could try to explain to me why the man you voted into office decided to sign away your right to due process on New Years with the NDAA. I've talked to A LOT of your compadres, and believe me, they're having a hard time playing the apologetics game. I'm anxiously awaiting what you have to say about these two issues.”

“NDAA should be repealed...This is not a policy I can support, but at the same time, it will not change my support for the President. There is not one candidate who's policies are perfect. If there is one,let me know....”
“Saying he's against taxation is not accurate at all. He has taken no such position. He's against the income tax, but not the indirect taxes that were present pre-1913. He favors the right of States to implement direct taxes, such as those on incomes.”
“Here's the full quote from the newsletter. "Given the inefficiencies of what D.C. laughingly calls the criminal justice system, I think it's safe to assume that 95% of Blacks in that city are semi-criminal or entirely criminal."
Does that sound like a racist comment, or one that is trying to expose the racism inherent in the system? Do your own research before you flippantly disavow someone like that. Ron Paul understands the inherent racism of the drug laws and wants to change them. That's much more progressive than even Obama, who has completely backed down on his promises to reform our drug policies.”
“HERE IS WHAT RON PAUL'S NEWSLETTER ACTUALLY SAID:
"Given the inefficiencies of what D.C. laughingly calls the 'criminal justice system', I think we can safely assume that 95% of the black males in that city are semi-criminal or entirely criminal."
He's talking about the racism of the criminal justice system and the drug laws, which, if you actually knew anything about Paul, you would have already understood. When HuffPost and other journalists take the second half of that sentence and leave out the first, you have to wonder if they're deliberately disparaging him or just too stupid to do research and read the entirety of the sentence.”
“Oh I see. When I typed this comment, I forgot I was on Huffington Post, where people don't generally like the pro-life stance. That's why it's 'indefensible.'
Yeah, I agree. I've always been more or less pro-life from a scientific point of view, but I think it's a states issue, and I don't think the mother should ever be prosecuted. I think if a state were to make abortions illegal, they should just keep doctors from doing it. That nonsense up in Minnesota or wherever it was (don't remember) where they proposed a state law that would require criminal investigations of miscarriages is a good example of an ideology gone way way overboard.”
“Can you please expand on Paul's position on reproductive rights being 'indefensible'? I'm very familiar with Paul's positions, and I don't recall ever seeing anything that stood out. Am I missing something huge here?”

“I agree, it's one thing to be pro-life when you have spent your life as an OB-GYN and another to be one cause your religion says it's evil.”
