Those who would sacrifice essential liberty to get a moments safety, deserve neither.

But the question is, what do you consider liberty, and how does that differ from my opinion.

Thus, democracy.

I agree with this definition of liberty, with one stipulation ... As long as you intentionally harm none.


Quote:
From Merriam - Liberty #1 - the quality or state of being free: a : the power to do as one pleases : freedom from physical restraint c : freedom from arbitrary or despotic control : the positive enjoyment of various social, political, or economic rights and privileges : the power of choice
Do you disagree?

Typical, if you do not back Paul you hate Freedom, the Constitution, are a warmonger, hate the Nation and in general are not smart enough to vote, yes, THAT is the Typcal RP supporter mindset. And they wonder why others are turned off by his IDEAS and his FANS.

Benjamin Franklin said it best.

Do people really think our Founding Fathers were clueless and outdated? We need to learn a lesson or two from them.

All one needs to do is read your posts and those of your ilk to realize that.
I could care less who anyone supports, don't elevate yourself.

Why don't you vote in the poll?

Ron Paul is the Constitution guy. Are you denying that?

You want to tell me Obama has the same passion as Ron Paul does? What about other GOP candidates?

Nobody has more respect for our Constitution than Ron Paul. How do I know? Look at his track record. It speaks for itself.

Typical BIG gubberment person who hates liberty and proves it every time he posts.

Someone asked why you didn't vote, i think thats obvious, because you would prefer to sacrifice liberty for security ... We know you would.

The POLL itself has nothing to do with Dr. Paul, and the OP specifically states that if you believe your candidate is a better Representative of liberty then Paul than please explain yourself, something which you failed to do. We all know you are an Obamabot, so if you think Obama better represents liberty then explain why, but of course we know you will not, because you cannot.

Isn't there a quote there that needs to be given proper credit?
