Ron Paul, a presidential candidate Americans need to hear from because he tells the truth and because over his many terms as a (L) Rep. from Texas, he's the ONE person in Congress who has not once failed to protect our Constitution. Listen to Paul

"Ron Paul before the Iraq war. Wise man see. Fools Rush In"

The videos posted at are of a Bill Moyers interview with Ron Paul before the Iraqi invasion, with Paul telling the truths Americans so desperately needed to hear and listen to then, the same truths more and more Americans are now tragically realizing. Well, there was a "light" in 2002, and that light is still twinkling in that vast ocean of deceit called "our government" just waiting for us to take notice. That light is Ron Paul.

Paul is the kind of brain we need in the White House.

Paul is the kind of mentality and dignity we need representing the U.S. to the world.

Paul is the man who's spent his life protecting the people of the United States- me and you - first by serving as a flight surgeon for the U.S. Air Force in the 60's, then by serving years in the House of Representative voting "NO" to every congressional assault against the one great thing this nation has going for her: The U.S. Constitution. Liberty.

Brief Overview of Congressman Paulís Record:

He has never voted to raise taxes.
He has never voted for an unbalanced budget.
He has never voted for a federal restriction on gun ownership.
He has never voted to raise congressional pay.
He has never taken a government-paid junket.
He has never voted to increase the power of the executive branch.

He voted against the Patriot Act.
He voted against regulating the Internet.
He voted against the Iraq war.

He does not participate in the lucrative congressional pension program.
He returns a portion of his annual congressional office budget to the U.S. treasury every year.

Congressman Paul introduces numerous pieces of substantive legislation each year, probably more than any single member of Congress.


You don't have to vote for Ron Paul for president, but you do need to hear - and share - what he is saying before you vote for anyone because Ron Paul provides us with the living breathing example of what the Constitutional role of government was meant to be - and what we have 200+ years later is not even in the same ball park.

Without a return to Constitutional Law what becomes of The United States will be what becomes of any nation who's leaders practice imperial hubris - collapse, failure. Without a return to Constitutional Law "The Rise and Fall of the American Empire" will become required reading in the schools "the people" will eventually build again - after the fall.

I've become a huge Dennis Kucinich man, but I've had enormous respect for Dr.Paul for many years. He NEVER votes "yes" on an unconstitutional bill, and has earned the nickname "Dr.No"! Sadly, Dr.Paul doesn't have a chance at the nomination, but his candidacy has raised the level of debate in this campaign, taking it to places it needs to be, and places it's never been before. He is a genuinely good man.....probably TOO good to be President....he's not corrupt enough!
Thank you, Katii, my friend!
noted happily!

Thank you, Tim, m'friend :)

I'm a big Kucinich fan myself. He's truly for the people, and he's in synch with my own views and opinions. Add to that he'd bring the first breath of beautiful, youthful, activist First Lady to the White House we've never seen the likes of before. I think she'd be able to inspire millions of women around the world, our own beautiful 'Princess' who's married to a man who adores her... Add to that Kucinich is a vegan, which means he "gets it" and he becomes a real choice - but I don't think Kucinich can say he's never voted against the Constitution. I don't think he has any desire to curb federal spending for any meaningful effect, but I haven't learned his position on that yet (I'll go do that when I get done). I haven't heard Kucinich say he'd get rid of the unconstitutional IRS, Paul has. Kucinich hasn't addressed the great American rip-off called The Federal Reserve, Paul has. Kucinich hasn't talked about our all but completely devalued dollar, Paul has. These are important issues to me.

Nothing would make me happier than to have a Paul the Libertarian/Kucinich the Democrat presidential ticket to vote for in 2008, short of that I'll take both of them being nominated to their respective parties - that would be a win! win! for the people.

And if we're SMART little voters, regardless of our affiliations, issues or favorites, we'll work hard to make sure BOTH KUCINICH AND PAUL, DO get nominated and not pit one against the other or disparage one in favor of the other - at least not until it's time for us to 'vote' 15 months from now ;)

I can really imagine this: One or the other is nominated by their party (or both are), and then Paul or Kucinich invite the other to be his running mate and Vice President. And who says they can't? I would love to see the 'looks on their faces' when they dropped that bomb on the DNC and RNC :D

Oh, Katii, if THAT were to
happen, people in the DNC
and RNC would soil themselves!
Paul/Kucinich...or vice-versa.
Oh my Goddess, now THERE'S a
dream ticket if I've ever heard
one! As Gordon Lightfoot said,
"If dreams could make wishes come true"

Win or lose, his goals are those of the People.

Tim, wishes do come true - when you believe they will ... haven't you noticed? ;)

I said nearly those exact words just the other day, to a man driving a van painted up with "Ron Paul 2008" & "It's not about politics, it's about freedom!" We Kucinich supporters have much in common with those supporting Ron Paul. We are both working to get real people, not corporate cronies, into the White House, by taking democracy out of the hands of the media, and putting it back in the hands of the people, where it belongs.

The goal of returning democracy to the people is bigger than one presidency, more lasting than one election. It is a goal that unites us, and invokes feelings of respect and appreciation for others who are 'fighting the good fight'.

Ron Paul is clearly the choice if Americans want to preserve their own money, what liberties they have left, and if they want to get back the freedoms they've already lost.

Americans need to be demanding the media give coverage to Ron Paul.
