Ron Paul Going Full Force to Republican National Convention (Video)

Via RT:

Ron Paul is the candidate that continues to be ignored by the mainstream media, but he is still in the game. The Texas congressman and his supporters continue to push towards the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida, but many doubt Paul’s delegate strategy will give him the GOP nod. So what can we expect from Paul at the RNC? Brian Doherty, senior editor at Reason.com, joins us with more on Paul’s new strategy heading to the RNC.

    So? Who cares? Even if he got elected, which he won’t, he couldn’t change shit if he wanted to. The president isn’t some Lord High Marshall who’s decrees are divine law(even though that’s what libertarians want property owners to become). Presidents can only get away with shit if others in the government/military are cooperating with them. Everyone who was all excited about Obama made the same error in judgement(although it looks like bammers was lying the whole time anyway).

      The most important property you own is yourself. I still think Ron Paul is a corporate plot to sell orthopedic shoes. Besides, if voting mattered it would be outlawed. Whoever gets elected next will merely represent the fourth term for W anyways.There is still plenty of corporate welfare to give out, and plenty of undeclared wars to start. After all we are Amoreicans, we keep the world free by bombing it back to the stoneage. Let freedom ring bitches!

        You can’t own yourself, because you and your self can’t be separated. 
        Besides, humanity was largely better off in the stone age. At least back then you didn’t have worry about nuclear warfare.

        • sam23sirius

          Nah, back then you just had to worry about big ass tigers, or getting an abscessed tooth. And if you don’t own you who does? 

          • Apathy

            No one does. Stop conceptualizing things as property in the first place.

          • sam23sirius

            If you have a birth certificate someone owns you.

          • Apathy

            That’s idiotic.

          • sam23sirius

            The government began assigning a dollar amount to each citizen in 1862. Lincoln offered 6 percent interest bearing-bonds to states who freed slaves on a “per head” basis. Our current system of debt-based currency relies on a steady stream of fresh new chattels to back it. If you have a birth certificate you are chattel property. Meet your strawman.

            So Obama is a free man!

            Ha ha ha. That is the advantage of being born in a Disney Imagineer lab.

      “Presidents can only get away with shit if others in the government/military are cooperating with them” Most of the generals and soldiers acknowledge that these wars are non-sensible and non-winnable…they simply claim (like mindless zombies) that they are “following orders”. So if Paul were to call them home asap, then me thinks they would be more than happy to oblige such an order! But then there are those who have vested financial interests in the wars…and they would presumably do everything they could to try and stop those orders from ever being carried out (or even issued in the first place…) Paul would – in theory – be pitting the military against the industrial-complex. And I would LOVE to see what would happen as a direct result :-)

      Also, most voters – including Refugs and Demotards – seem to agree that all drugs should be legalized. No President has ever dared to utter those words, so just imagine the profound impact of Paul sitting down for a “fireside chat” in which he explicitly underlines why legalization is absolutely necessary in order to save billions of dollars and millions of lives. And the chats could have guest stars: police officers from LEAP (Law Enforcement Against Prohibition) as well as leaders from other countries who have already implemented such laws. And perhaps most importantly of all: freeing every inmate whose only “crime” was a non-violent drug-related offense. Think about the number of families (particularly amongst communities which are comprised largely of racial minorities) who this would impact! If the general public knew that the White House was eager and willing to back up their vote on this particular issue, then it could easily garner an unprecedented amount of support at the polls and it could become the law of the land within months.

    Ron Paul would make headway for improving the country for We the people than any other president in the last 100years.   He could do a lot without the endorsement of other politicians.   First, sign executive order for the USA to print it’s own money, pay off the fed or tell them to take a hike, either way it would put us on the right track.   Let states decided, take MMJ off the feds list, make it legal for adults, end the lie of the drug war.   there is a lot he could do single handed.

      You are a fool. Nothing but a fool.

        “The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.”Your projected label is not an objective truth; it is merely your opinion. Many would disagree with you and call you the fool for giving in to apathy and mocking those whose spirits are still alive and seem to be stronger than your own. Even if the situation seems hopeless and the outcome you do not wish for seems more likely, why not charge toward it, uncaring, with your sword drawn, rather than whimpering and running away with your tail between your legs? It may be that those who press on are fools, but at least they gave it their all and did not turn and run away in the face of seemingly overwhelming opposition.

    Thank you for posting this video.  I always watch the video clips posted here and was listening to this clip thinking… I know that voice…  It’s Abby Martin from Media Roots!  I had no idea she was so young and looks like a model with brains.  Best wishes to her in this new career path.  Also, I think RT does some great work because I never hear/see any other TV media out covering the topics they cover. 

  • Titancheerleader12

    I believe their actually may be a chance RP can win the nomination at the RNC.  He has amassed quite a large number of delegates (the media says otherwise but the hard numbers tell an entirely different narrative) and delegates are allowed to abstain or vote for whatever candidate they choose.  There is no such thing as a bound delegate so hypothetically Romney could win 100% of the popular vote of any state and deleagtes from that state could still vote for Paul.  The delegate process was an ingenious check to ensure that the best candidate was nominated, regardless of money or popularity.  Since the media largely ignores RP the general public is noty privy to his message.  If they were you would not see Romney winning the popular vote.  Since the media blackouts RP’s successes and grassroots support the delegate process allows him to level the playing field because his supporters are much more passionate. 

    Ron Paul is the only candidate that would decrease the size of the government and return it to its constitutuional form.  This means things we have done for 20, 30, 50 or 100 years may have to change.  Just because things have been one way for awhile in no way makes them right or Constitutional.  I look forward to seeing the federal gov. reigned in and their power stripped and rightfully returned to the states.  I look forward to no entering unecessasy wars and doing so ONLY with a declaration of war from Congress.  So many things that RP believes in he can accomplish single handidly.  We need a man with his principle and conviction in office.

      Okay we got it.  You are the deconstructionist.  I assume you are trying to be clever.  Now let me as an “elder” here explain to you that you are not clever…I am.  Now that I have displayed my disapproval you can stop.  I know you were just trying to impress someone to fit in somewhere.  (I hope that he doesn’t notice the projection.)

         I am going to type out a very lengthy and intelligent post that will number in total of over one thousand words.  Let me lay the law down.  First I believe that consciousness seems to be nothing more than massive amounts of information that can be stored and accessed and does not require the physical mind to meet that criteria.  This could simply be achieved within a much smaller space such as in quantum function.  We know that all information is preserved and that energy (the stuff of fundamental brain function) works on the quantum level.  As long as no real quantum physicist reads this post those statements will hold.  Intrinsically to the nature of preservation of information within the temporal dimension, there would necessarily be consciousness.  For anyone to reject that idea would be to deny reality.  The problem with that idea is that the consciousness would have to make declarations internally and would have to have some sort of desire in order to by definition be consciousness.  This would mean that there is some sort of transcendent authority which holds the right to establish right and wrong.  Lucky for us we claim to not know it and that this entity has never revealed it to us.  We also claim that we are technically part of it and our reality is indeed not so.

        Thus in society today there seems to be vestiges of those who refuse to accept the lack of revelation.  This desire for knowledge inherent to homo sapiens has led them to fabricate convenient replacements throughout the eons.  Today we seem to be burdened by these vestiges of primal craving.  But our view of reality not being reality cannot persist in the light of contemporary scientific data.  We have found ourselves a bit iconoclastic in the west as well as emerging technocrats.  We in fact are satisfying our technocratic tendencies on this site as we speak (or type) but we are typing a Noetic world view which states that none of this is real.  Indeed we have slipped so far down the rabbit hole that we have created slavish paradigms within slavish paradigms, all of which we state are illusions forcing us to collapse our wave functions in unison with those who know not the slightest of our truth claims.  One this level we operate on the subconscious level of truth in science and require absolute proof, while on the other deny any truth and demand the absolute truth that no truth is absolute.  We must change our frequencies by which our strings vibrate all the while ignorant to the dubious state of string theory and its wheel chair progress amongst its competitors.  Perhaps we can ignorantly mix in some m theory and call it all compatible.  Those leading scientists in the application of these sciences reject it…we know, but they are not enlightened as we are.  For the transcendence of homo sapiens to the next state of being does not require the complicated algorithms to be understood, just implemented.  Thus with one side we worship the leading scientist with out technocratic lust while on the other we reject there strict adherence to religiously, nay obligation and oath to believe only in the data, testable, repeatable, observable and verifiable.  Just food for thought.  Please give me likes.

           I am an adult with a decent amount of intelligence.  The problem is that I have the emotional maturity of a five year old.  What that means is that I must have the last word at all costs.

    HERE IS WHAT WASHINGTON (Obama) DON’T WANT YOU TO KNOW !!!!!!

    How would you like to totally pay off the National Debt without costing the American People one penny?

    How would you like to Abolish the Internal Revenue Service?

    THIS IS VERY, VERY SIMPLE and EASY !!!

    REMEMBER ONE THING; KEEP YOUR EYE ON THE MONEY SUPPLY.

    If the money supply goes up you create INFLATION and prices goes up.

    If the money supply goes down you create DEFLATION and prices goes down.

    If the money supply remains CONSTANT. Prices tend to trend lower.

    1) First we Abolish the Federal Reserve established in 1913..

    2) Then we Abolish the Internal Revenue Service established in 1913 along with the Federal Reserve, which serves as the collection arm of the Federal Reserve to pay itself Annual Interest for money we borrowed from ourself.

    3) Then We take “fractional reserve banking system” away from all banks and go back to “100% reserve banking system”.

    4) Presently the Federal Reserve allows all banks to legally print $10 new Dollars for every dollar they hold on deposit (this is really counterfeiting). This increases bank profits and the Money Supply by a factor of tenfold for every new dollar printed by the Treasury Department and also causes Inflation.

    5) This year the Federal Government will borrow and print $1.5 Trillion Dollars.

    Eventually this money ends up deposited in a bank. The Banks just like a magician are allowed to take that $1.5 Trillion Dollars and turn it into $15 Trillion Dollars, this will Increase the Money Supply by total of $15 Trillion Dollars.

    Wait a minute!!! Ain’t that the same amount we need to pay off the entire Federal National Debt?

    We must take “Fractional Reserve Banking System” (this should be called CONTERFITING ) away from the banks and force them to use “100 % Reserve Banking System”.

    Then tell the Treasury Department to print up $15 Trillion Dollars of non-interest bearing Treasury notes (dollars) and buy back all the Interest bearing Bonds (Our Total National Debt).

    This will not increase the Money Supply by even one penny because we will destroy all the interest bearing Bonds we just purchased.

    WOW.. we  just paid off the entire $15 trillion dollar National Debt by printing non-bearing interest Treasury notes (dollars) and did not cost the American people one penny.

    We totally eliminated the National Debt, eliminated annual interest payments on the National Debt, eliminated paying Federal Income Taxes and created a positive surplus of $2.6 Trillion dollar in the Social Security trust fund,

    Every time I go through the calculations I think of other benefits.

    Some National Debt Facts:

    •    Social Security trust fund is $2.6 trillion in the black (IOU’s).
    •    Social Security trust fund in 2010 ran a $68 billion surplus.
    •    Only $1.2 trillion is owed to China.
    •    $10 trillion is owed to American people.

    When we pay-off the National Debt as I have suggested we automatically create a Positive Social Security Trust Fund of $2.6 trillion dollars that I suggest we separate this Trust Fund from the General Account.

    Presently we are paying about $400 Billion Dollars every year interest on the National Debt (money we borrowed from ourself). But, if interest rates starts going up because of Hyper-Inflation and that’s exactly what the Price of Gold is telling us right now. This interest we are paying on the National Debt could easily grow to an amount larger than the total Federal Gross Income tax receipts.

    This is a very Powerful Monetary Tool and this gives you an idea of how the banks has been given this sweetheart deal by Congress back in 1913 which has allowed the Banks to literally rob the American people out of trillions of dollars. The Federal Reserve has already screwed the American People out of $150 Trillion Dollars since its inception.

    This will force all the American Banks to go back to a Fair Banking System of “one hundred percent reserve banking system”.

    What happens if we do NOTHING?

    The alternative is to let the Federal Reserve continue screwing the American people out of TRILLIONS of DOLLARS year after year?

    Do you understand what is going to happen when the Feds are forced to start increasing the interest rates to stop the coming Hyper-Inflation?

    Back in the 1980s Federal Reserve chairman Paul Volcker was forced to increase Interest rates because of run-away inflation and the Interest rates jump to around 20%. If that was to happen now we could easily see the Annual Interest Charged on our National Debt jump to around $2.8 Trillion Dollars a year. That my friend does not include the projected Annual Budget short fall of another $1.6 Trillion Dollars.

    This is exactly why the Price of Gold has increased from $300/oz. to $1,800/oz., a six fold increase. Gold is trying to tell everyone something but no one is listening as usual?

    We could end up paying more annual interest on the National Debt than the Internal Revenue Service collects in annual gross Income Tax receipts?

    That is called Absolute National Bankruptcy.

    The Federal Drug Administration (FDA) is just another privately owned organization setup by the Rockefeller Family to benefit all the large drug Companies and the Medical establishment. The Pharmaceutical Industry, AMA and FDA are Endangering Your Health for Profits.

    Please copy and post if you like this idea.

    HERE IS WHAT WASHINGTON (Obama) DON’T WANT YOU TO KNOW !!!!!!

    Here is how to create 13.68 million JOBS in the USA over night..

    Submitted by Harry Dingey on Thu, 03/22/2012 – 23:25. Permalink

    I retired after working thirty years as an Industrial Engineer at Rockwell International in Newark, Ohio.

    So, please trust me, these are Real International Trade numbers to back up everything I am saying.

    Did you know that America can create 13.68 Million good paying Jobs almost overnight by Pulling out of NAFTA and the WTO right now?

    But, most of our American Politicians are in the pocket of the Globalist and they will never let that happen without a bitter fight.

    Here is how to create 13.68 million jobs in the United States almost overnight:

    “Based on the U.S.Department of Commerce estimates that 22,800 jobs are created for every $1 billion in merchandise produced for Import or Export.”

    Go to the following location to check out this statement if you like.

    http://www.policyarchive.org/handle/10207/bitstreams/9621.pdf

    ==================================================

    Total USA Imports in 2011 = $ 1,900 billion.

    $ 1,900 billion X 22,800 = 43.320 million jobs lost to Imports from China, India, Japan & Mexico.

    ==================================================

    Total USA Exports in 2011 = $ 1,300 billion.

    $ 1,300 billion X 22,800 = 29.640 million jobs created from Exports.

    ==================================================

    If USA Pulls out of NAFTA and the WTO right now here is what the numbers say:

    USA could possibly lose 29.640 million Jobs from EXPORTS.

    However, I am sure many countries will still import some items from the USA because they are not available in other countries. That would of course create even more JOBS gained than I have estimated.

    The USA would absolutely create 43.320 million Jobs by closing the doors to NAFTA and the WTO and producing these items in the USA.

    So, 43.320 minus 29.640 = 13.68 million NET JOBS Absolutely GAINED.

    The Manufacturing JOB LOSS is increasing each and every year. I calculated this JOB LOSS in 2006 at 10 million JOBS LOST in 2006.

    My calculation means an ABSOLUTELY net gain of 13.68 million Jobs gained if the rest of the world did not buy one single penny of USA EXPORTS.

    SO MOTE IT BE….
