Obama Signs NDAA Martial Law - YouTube

Yeah that is powerful stuff, i don't see how anyone can deny it anymore, it is so in our faces, and people just pretend like it isn't happening, or that it is necessary for our safety, and that is exactly the kind of thinking that started the third Reich ... You would think our older voters would realize that we were just fighting people in Germany for the same things we are doing now. And you would think especially the Jews would see this as a bad sign ... I guess they might think that they are not the target this time so it might not matter to them, but they would be very wrong.

How many of our fathers and grandfathers and uncles and brothers died to defend America and the world against this kind of Government? What is going on?

We're becoming the very thing that we fought against.

Everyone who supports Ron Paul, shout it from the rooftops! Donate a small amount of money to his campaign! He will accept a salary of less than $40,000 if he becomes president, a man of virtue and change! Keep up the momentum guys, don't let the usual suspects and the brain dead Obamazombies and Neocons discourage you. This is the time for a true revolution in this country. Let their anger and frustration fuel the fire, the powers that be, bankers, and the leeches of society are lamenting his meteoric rise.
I am very much aware of his platform, yes, I know he is a fiscal conservative and yes, I know he is socially a liberal, that is what makes him a libertarian. This has nothing to do with my remarks, constantly posting the above on here will not change many minds, if any. Remember people here are pretty much political junkies, most voters are not or are too busy making a living to spend hours on the computer each day. In fact I wonder what many of your bosses would say if they knew how you are spending your work hours?

This is pretty disturbing stuff. If more people knew what's really going on maybe we'd be able to change this. But from what I see, where I am, people are content doing nothing. Sitting at home, watching hours of tv, playing video games, sitting on the internet. And this is what's happening as they sedate themselves with those mind numbing habits. We are being robbed of our freedoms. And the majority is ok with that

Dr. Paul goes far beyond party lines, because he represent real American values and sensibilities that most politicians seem to have forgotten about, and in a time when it seems that nearly everyone in Washington is hell bent on selling we the people of this nation out.
Why does being a constitutionalists make no sense to you as a legitimate democratic position? Is it that you believe and admit that BIG government is contrary to the constitution?

Isn't it obvious that the fed. Government, like some giant parasite that has overgrown its host and thus jeopardizes it own existence, is not TOO BIG TO FAIL if we allow them to continue to do what they are doing up there in Washington?

It makes perfect sense, to people who have any sense.
Here's a couple of posts from some new members that prove you are wrong about that. You obviously do not realize or appreciate how powerful the internet is as a tool for change, and that is another thing that many people still haven't figured out that Dr. Paul has ...

From: Is it just a coincidence that the Paul supporters on here are mostly new to C-D ?
Being a strong constituionalist is not what most liberals stand for. You know this and so do most of us. Yes, there may be a few who change their midns from reading our comments on City Data, but they are few and far between.
And btw, thanks for sharing with us, people with any sense would back Paul. Last I heard there are people with sense that back various candidates or are you saying those who do not think the way you do are idiots?

Being a Canadian - I don't know a lot about Paul - but what I sense is that this man understands that reality is a must if the empire of America is to survive - You can only sustain a fraud for so long and then the house of cards comes tumbling down - what I see is that the American empire is heavliy dependant on deception to maintain the current status quo...reality and truth - will always trump corruption - it just takes time - Of course Paul is a threat...much like Jesus was a threat to the Roman empire..because he demanded real freedom and dignity for the populace..and I sense that Paul understands that America is a liar and a liar eventually falls and is revealed - Paul wants the old fashion return to FREEDOM - JUSTICE - and the re-taking of the moral high ground that was lost the moment - Cheney stated that torture was ecceptable..that was the downward turning point for America - that barbarism and the tossing away of rule of law became a trend...Paul is probably your only hope...BUT they will destroy him..because truth - is a dangerous thing to those that maintain power through deception.

Crooks will lead you to ruin - that is the natural effect in the long run - You can lie to the people most of the time but not forever - you run out of illusions..and reality always kicks in - It is a matter of time - Paul will do well no matter what - If elected or not - you will have a new spirit that will slowly desolve those that think they are entitled to keep power and wealth forever by any means...good luck and Merry Christmas.

Interesting that, on the NDAA, Ron Paul and Al Franken are in agreement. Strange bedfellows.
