ron paul is the only politician out there who cares about the public and the only one who knows what he is talking about.

Too bad the public is too chicken to vote for this guy. Oh wait, even if they did the votes would be changed so he loses, or he would be assassinated.

Yeah, too bad the election was media rigged from the start. The sheeple lose again. But you are right he would have been "eliminated".

Ron Paul won't give them their luxuries, he expects people to live within their means... unfortunately the other candidates say you should live with your luxuries and other people will pay for you to make your ends meet... Which one would the typical American go for? Its our society now that we have to resort to stealing from others, unfortunately we steal from those who succeed in life

I bought the audio book but I would recommend amazon's used book section for the best deal.

You know what else might make a lot sense to you? Libertarianism! (and I don't mean the Libertarian Party, necessarily) At the very basic level, everyone has the liberty to do as they please given they don't violate the liberties of others.

Just a suggestion, of course.

I'm not one of the Ron Paul brigade, and I don't think Ron Paul is electable.

However, I believe pretty much that he will prove to be hugely influential in the coming elections as the founder of a new movement within the Republican party. He's basically this generation's answer to Barry Goldwater.

Why? Because both the Republican and Democratic Party are reliant on heavy handed statism at this point. The Democrats want to give people personal freedom, but heavily regulate the economy. Meanwhile the Republicans want to limit human freedom, but loosen things up on the economic front. Ron Paul stands for limited government both in the personal and economic spheres of our life.

He's better than Goldwater on terms of social issues. He's against Roe V. Wade and understands what the first amendment actually says in regards to religion. Ron Paul and Alan Keyes are the only two candidates I could vote for. I'd pay to see their two great minds debate foreign policy and "free" trade. While both of them agree that entering war with Iraq was a bad move, I tend to side with Alan that we are obligated to finish what we started. To me, Ron doesn't seem like he has a grasp on just how dangerous the Islamic movement is. We have to be very careful of the conflicts we choose to get involved in, but the world is far too dangerous for a hands off non interventionist philosophy. WWII proved that. Paul could bring alot more to his camp if he wasn't so dovish in regards to radical Islam.
