The Cain meltdown really accelerated the past few days, so in future polls Newt will probably grab a large portion of those fleeing the Cain Train, and maybe some of the undecided. Ron's definitely top tier.
It makes you wonder about American's ability to judge character and competence in a potential president when you see Cain still doing as well as he supposedly is. Cain and Paul are like night and day when it comes to knowledge and competence and integrity. Yet they are supposedly even in the polls. If the truth shall set you free, a lot of Americans backing Cain and Gingrich for that matter (with all his assorted baggage and connection to banksters) are still in prison.

The GOP WILL not pick Paul, but that is your right to cling to your hope until they take that hope away.
If you think about it, our current policy is FAR MORE ISOLATIONIST than what Ron Paul advocates (or what President Bush advocated when he first ran for President). Currently we are just attacking any country President Obama's spirit moves him to attack. Doing that doesn't exactly "endear" us to those countries or other countries seeing us do it. It has been that way for a long time too but it just hasn't been so IN YOUR FACE like it is now.

It isn't too hard to imagine that we might become a lot better liked if we didn't act like such bullies and instead just traded with other countries and didn't take the liberty to occupy them and bomb their civilians. I don't see how any thinking person could justify that the bully approach that we've been using makes us any better off in any way shape or form.

Dangit. Can't rep you yet. This is one of those times I dislike the rep thingie limit on CD. I get it, but I don't always like it because posts go without the recognition they deserve.

Isn't it interesting that a concept that seems to be common-sense is so hard to understand for alot of people? It's mind-blowing. When I finished up rp's book I literally said outloud..."THIS WHOLE BOOK IS JUST COMMON SENSE"

My generation only knows big government..which is why, for me even, rp's beliefs are still hard to grasp even though I support him all the way.

Right, and they've fooled you just as thoroughly. You're the one who keeps popping off about Ron and his "isolationist" beliefs.

That's because he/she doesn't actually understand what isolationism is, like probably most of the people who say that about Dr. Paul. They just parrot what they have heard others say and do not have any actual understanding when it comes to the difference between isolationism and non-interventionism.

Lets let the Good Dr., congressman Ron Paul, explain the basic differences between the three foreign policy philosophies of Isolationism, interventionism, and non-interventionism ...

Isolationism vs Non-Interventionism: Ron paul Explains - YouTube


In 2 days they will insist that they didn't see that, right from the guy they will call an isolationist again.

Keep that one bookmarked!
I have started doing that for all the misinformation flying about Dr. Ron Paul.

Your post above shows your ignorance where the good Dr. is concerned ... Dr. Paul is a man of character and principles, i doubt that he would accept an offer for VP or even a cabinet position from any of the present candidates should they win the election. However, i could stand corrected should he be offered the position as secretary of state, but we all know that isn't going to happen.
