    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Republican Rep. Ron Paul of Texas called on voters to back a third-party candidate for president Wednesday, rejecting his party's nominee and offering equally harsh words for the Democratic candidate.

    Paul, who unsuccessfully sought the Republican presidential nomination this year, told supporters at the National Press Club in Washington that he is not endorsing GOP nominee Sen. John McCain or Democratic nominee Sen. Barack Obama.

    Instead, Paul will give his seal of approval to four candidates: Green Party nominee Cynthia McKinney, Libertarian Party nominee Bob Barr, independent candidate Ralph Nader and Constitution Party candidate Chuck Baldwin.

    Full Story here:
  2. I love Ron Paul, he puts the "crazy" in "Holy fuck he's batshit crazy!"
  3. Yet voting for McCain or Obama is considered sane.

  4. Neither of them even appears on the same graph of craziness as Ron Paul. Apart from ranting that he's going to get rid of the Federal Reserve, the IRS, the income tax (all of which would slam the country right into bankruptcy), he's also on record saying things like "The notion of a rigid separation between church and state has no basis in either the text of the Constitution or the writings of our Founding Fathers."

    Oh, and there's also his racist newsletters which he refused to release, but frankly that's the least crazy thing he's done.
  5. A person who never had a chance, backing four others who have no chance. Strange indeed...
  6. Indeed a very strange move...
    As a rule - supporting the larger green supporters might seem sound, but they seem to really have pushed the envelope on the US population with a coloured female candidate...

    More of a statement than any real impact on outcomes.

    Ron Paul's economic views are in line with many libertarians, while his religious views are --- well, religious.

    Having religion mixed with the state is not exactly what minarchists should be promoting. He is somewhat contradictory there...
  7. You obviously never read anything written by the founding fathers.

    Ron Paul hits the nail on the head when it comes to the primary problems of these nation. Meanwhile, sheeple like you just can't handle the truth or bother to educate yourself, hence you gravitate toward the political theatre that Obama & McCain put on, while they discuss insignificant issues and ignore the real problems.

    Oh and in case you have not gotten the memo, USA is bankrupt and has been for a while. Technically it went BK back when Nixon went off the gold standard.
  8. Well I'll let that idiot Thomas Jefferson put you in your place: "The clergy, by getting themselves established by law and ingrafted into the machine of government, have been a very formidable engine against the civil and religious rights of man (Letter to J. Moor, 1800)."

    Now, Ron Paul, (R - nutcase): "The notion of a rigid separation between church and state has no basis in either the text of the Constitution or the writings of our Founding Fathers."

    In fact, Jefferson even writes about the separation between church and state in his letter to the Danbury Baptists.

    So if you think Ron Paul is right, then you sir are well on your way to a nice white room and a jacket with long sleeves.

    Really? They're ignoring real problems such as military spending and health care? Perhaps I could suggest you read both their sites. Ron Paul has the mindless, simplistic answers which he gets to by simple scapegoating.

    Wow, that's stunningly simplistic. You, sir, are a fine Ron Paul supporter.
  9. Do you even realize you are taking the whole quote out of context? Try reading his whole speech, if you have the attention span:

    The First Amendment Protects Religious Speech
    by Rep. Ron Paul, MD
    Ron Paul in the US House of Representatives, April 2, 2003

    Look it up. His point that religious rights are embedded in the first amendment. While you are a perfect example of media controlled sheep.

    No, I will be chilling, while you will be in a shantytown, wondering why you amazing choice to vote for one of the puppets has failed you.

    Try watching the Republican primary debates and see how quickly EVERY candidate avoided any real question regarding fiscal state of US and the dollar. Did you even see McCain when Ron Paul asked him a real economic question? He did not even know what to say because a) he is a retard b) his team & admin has no plans to care about the economy.

    As for Obama, lol, it's called a centralized economy.

    No, it's the truth, which you are afraid to face. Try going back in history to see the headlines & heavy debate which followed. The fact was that US could no longer honor gold redemptions by the foreign banks, hence, it defaulted.

    The nation is bankrupt, states & municipalities are in deficits and have problems selling their bonds, the federal has to raise debt ceilings on a regular basis, the people are drowning in debt. The last act of the play has begun, it's just a matter of watching it unfold.
  10. You are right and your detractors wrong. Look at the tape. Every market in the world is melting down and Gold is up over fifty dollars an ounce.
