I with every inch of my body believe Ron Paul WOULD have a chance winning as an Independent because he would get the majority of Independent vote and would get the less insane part of the Republican Party and the liberty section of the Democratic Party.

Independents never stood a chance in the past because they didn't have the infrastructure. Ron Paul is different, he has a huge grassroots movement that's developed over numerous years. Even Fox News ignores Ron Paul, so it's not like he could get any less media attention than he already does.
I often wonder why Dr. Paul feels it so important to align with the republican party. Could it be that he is a libertarian in name only?

No better fear marketer than the US govt imo. Also nothing wrong w/ knowing where funding and legal authority are going. I am sure some Japanese Americans wished they would have had better information. Luckily, information is everywhere.

An exquisite example of complete idiocy ...

For over 10 years we have been telling people about the move toward globalization and a global police state, how they would start destroying our rights one at a time here at home. You people laughed and said we were crazy and made tin foil hat comments, then they signed the patriot act and started opening concentration camps and torturing people, and next they started assassinating American citizens without charge or trial, and now they have signed the NDAA and have effectively repealed the 4th amendment along with posse comitatus and have declared the US a war zone are are putting unmanned drones in the skies to monitor and spy on American citizens ...

Just like Ron Paul telling the congress what would happen in 2002, and everyone said he was a quack and a fear monger and low and behold everything he said would happen came true and still, ignorant morons all over the country are continuing to mock us and pretend as if we haven't been right about EVERYTHING so far ... Some people on this forum are either so stupid that they must be impaired, utterly insane, or simply sold out enemies of the constitution and the American way. In truth there is likely nothing better that can happen than for the fools to get what they got coming ... I guess its about time for these morons to learn the hard way ... Its just so sad to watch it happen, and to have to see the innocent suffer in the process. You can lead a horse to water, but you cant make it drink.

You are, and I do still laugh. There are no FEMA camps, you can spend as much time watching Alex Jones youtube videos as you want, there just aren't any and your shrill hyper exaggeration about the impacts of all these other things you live in fear is just another symptom of you, not the system.

Run! hide! Fear! Tremble!

Good point, politicians have long played on fear to sway public opinion when it suits them.

But FEMA camps... come on that's hilarious. Maybe you can watch the chem trails overhead if you have an open cell.

Actually I don't find FEMA camps or chem trails hilarious, but hey, each to his own.

Okay, maybe you're right ... Maybe we are wrong and there is nothing to fear from your BIG government that you love so much. Then we have nothing to worry about and in the end you will have had a good laugh and though i may feel a little silly having believed in such things, i will be happier for it.

However, what if we are right? What if you are the one who is ignorant and deceived, and what if you end up in one of those FEMA camps you said never existed, like one of the Jews in the Holocaust who said it would never happen, would you be laughing then?

Somehow i don't think so ...

I think the people that say that don't really care. They obviously aren't willing to do any research because if they did, they'd see those reasons don't hold any water.
