Ron Paul on Colbert Report








The fact that Ron Paul is hated by Republicans and Democrats yet loved by Independents shows America that the two-party system is broken.

We need a third party. The Constitutionalist Party. Limited government. Limited taxes. Limited spending. Personal freedom. Just as the founders intended.

Folks, the Democrats suck. The Republicans suck. And we're stuck with two bought and paid for parties that, well, pretty much suck.

Now look around at the mess they've caused, and ask yourself:

Isn't it time for a change?

Perhaps the Great Housing Crash will be the start of that change. At least something good will have come of it.

Is it time for a change? Yes.

It is time for a change with a man who thinks we should negotiate with Al Qaeda, wants to take us back to 1930s isolationism?

No.

Oh and hauspocalypsenow, if you want an antiiwar, anti-american candidate no need to register republican. Every one of the Democunts running holds Ron Paul's views of blame America first.

Dude is going to shut down all the government agencies. Yeah right.

I suppose Big Business will just take care of those things. That'll work real well.

Colbert made a fool of him.

People like Colbert remind me that America is like the Platte River -- a mile wide and an inch deep.

People think he is an entertaining crazy man, like Ross Perot. Hence his popularity on talk shows like Colbert, Daily Show etc. Nobody in their right mind will vote for him though. You people need to take a break from blogs, it is seriously warping your minds on what is real and what isn't. Ron Paul will get about 1/2 a % of the vote. He is the 2008 version of Dennis Kucinich, a weird, funny looking, funny sounding Congressman with some really out there views. A sideshow freak. He will be about as succesfull as Dennis Kucinich was as far as getting the nomination.

So simple, we get out of Iraq, make friends with Osama, close the borders, eliminate the IRS, get rid of the military and all will be well.

It says a lot about he mental immaturity of bloggers that he is so popular. And you wonder why nobody takes you people seriously.

Good show and the RP folks were in full force at the show campaigning.

RJ said...

RP supporters - Keep asking those who support party hacks like Giuliani or Hillary, or any of the bought and paid for front runners for that matter, what they are going to do about our $60 trillion debt. You know, the one that is going to cause this country to financially self destruct. Nobody has answered that question. Nobody wants to answer that question because there is no answer to that question that doesn't require guts and honesty. RP has plenty of both.

We already have such a party, the Libertarian Party that Paul ran for president on in 1988. It gets a whole 1 to 2 percent of the vote. I'm afraid it will take a total fiscal collapse of the country to change things, and then it will probably change for the worse, with people such as Comrade Hillary, or worse, taking over.

Dale said...

I think that the housing crash is going to provide a big boost to Paul's campaign. He's the only one who really understands WHY it happened and how to prevent it from happening again in the future.

Here's a YouTube link to his arrival at the Colbert Report studios on Tuesday. Seeing HUNDREDS of supporters greeting him with signs and shouts made me smile from ear to ear!

One word for Ron Paul: FANTASTIC! Imagine a candidate with the quaint idea of actually following the Constitution and the rule of law.

SPECTRE of Deflation said...

Anyone who loves the Constitution and the rule of law should make a donation to Ron Paul. GO RON GO!!

I would love a third party that sticks to what the founders envisioned. However, the problem with implementing this is that the "handout crowd" would use this period of divide to elect a Hillary or Obama nightmare. Face it, we're no longer a country of rugged individualists who cherish liberty. Instead, we've become dependent on the government to give us everything we need, just like the socialists wanted. It will take a substantial economic disaser to wake up the citizenry of this country...

cradle2grave said...

Fat stupid lazy Americans don't want freedom. they want a nanny state to take care of all their whims and needs. A chicken in every pot, a car in every garage and a plasma tv in every room. The masses will be happy.

z said...

I have voted for exactly one R/D in my 13 years of voting. The rest go to Libertarians and if they are not in the race then no one.
I will not register R to vote for Ron Paul, but should he somehow win the primary he will be the second major party candidate I vote for.

Anonymous said...

Libertarian is the third largest political party in the US, and I have yet to vote for anyone who held office.

I just might change to Republicrat to get Ron Paul on the ballot though.

rcochran said...

We already have a Constitution Party. They're a bunch of wack jobs, nowhere near Ron Paul's league.

Ron Paul is a pure conservative, far from today's neocon Republicans, far from the Dems, what a GOOD Libertarian should be. If the Republican party were to become what they've many times claimed to be, then Ron Paul would be the purest and best Republican ever.

Anonymous said...

I heard that Ron Paul will be on the Stephanie Miller show Monday. Should be interesting.

Anonymous said...

Both major parties are owned by corporate interests and don't represent the people anymore. That is fascism.

Keep supporting Ron Paul and support freedom.

Actually my wife and I will be doing the same.

I am actually on registering as a Republican to vote for Ron Paul. The libertarian party already exists, so we can just vote for them in teh future. I voted for Badnarik in 2004. I am more libertarian when it comes to national issues vs local issues btw. I wonder if any other people are like that.

RiperDurian said...

I've been a "decline to state" for a couple of decades but now I have registered as a Republican so I can vote for Ron Paul in the primary.

Is there anything you DON'T like about him? Come on wingnuts, no man is perfect. If you can't criticize him than you truly are in a cult.

gt said...

as much as i like the guy, the other poster is right, colbert made him look like a loony, and maybe he is.
getting rid of all those agencies. very unrealistic. heck it got me scared about my fed job. i guess DC will consist of only a white house and capitol. what companies will fill all those fed agencies? those 100k jobs just gone in jan 09? come on.
he needs to tone it down some.

Dear lord he looked like a total goober at the end. I'm all for lower taxes but this guy is certifiable.

I don't understanding wanting to get rid of NAFTA - where are you going to get your oil, water and electricity from?

glenngary said...

"I don't understanding wanting to get rid of NAFTA - where are you going to get your oil, water and electricity from?"

We sell to companies around the world and Canada and Mexico are a pain in the ass to deal with. It's easier to sell stuff to Taiwan, halfway around the world than to deal with the government pecksniffs in Ottawa or Mexico City. NAFTA is one-sided bullshit, and it has nothing to do with the "oil, water, and electricity". Give us another reason, numbnuts.

Huh? The U.S. is a purchaser of oil, water and electricity (and you call me numbnuts?) The U.S. purchases these items from Canada under NAFTA. If you think it is preferable for you to purchase these items from Taiwan, then you just go ahead....

RJ said...

Still no answer to the question.
What are the other candidates going to do about our $60 trillion debt? RP looked insane on Colbert? The sane man always looks insane to inmates in an asylum. The reason he wants to drastically cut so many government programs has to do with the fact that we are already insolvent according to the GAO and a very important report out of the St. Louis FED. If you people were even mildly informed you would know that the only reason the lights are on in DC is because of the $2.5 billion dollars in loans we acquire daily. I guess there is no hope. Not because RP is on the lunatic fringe. It's because lunatics are the mainstream.

Your a dick.
Clowns like you have been baggin' on Hp for two years now, "Keith is a wacko", "HP'ers are idiots", etc. Now, everyone is quoting Keith, the MSM is practically cutting and pasting HP. Guess what puke, we are right about Dr. Paul too. He may not win, but he will start the revolution. Eventually all of the pocket politicians will be gone, the constitution told me so.

Like everything else that affects Americans, we don't fix it till the ashes cool.

The "hand out crowd" will have no influence when there are no more handouts.
We will soon reach critical mass, unable to "fix it" and return to "normal", we will have no choice but to start over. Our job is to make sure we start over with the original framework.
Be patient, America will rise again.
Remember, FDR's New Deal was intended to be a temporary boost to recover from the Great Depression. I laugh at these absolute MORONS who come on here and defend the Status Quo, and infer that Dr. Paul is crazy for wanting to abolish unconstitutional temporary laws and illegal "departments" that were never intended by the founding fathers. Ask yourself, "how did we make it 160 years with out all these services?" "why is our country bankrupt after only 70 years of the New Deal?"

"One thing is sure. We have to do something. We have to do the best we know how at the moment... If it doesn't turn out right, we can modify it as we go along."
Franklin D. Roosevelt

I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men. - Woodrow Wilson

Same place we got it from before NAFTA, stooge.

Amazing to listen to these weaklings who can't fend for themselves.

For thousands of years man took responsibility for himself. In 75 years, since the new deal, we have become a nation of sniveling, frightened, Nancys.

Try growing a pair.

No oil, I'm chain sawin' some trees.
No water? I live two miles from the Merced river. Last I checked it didn't have a shut off valve in Canada or Mexico.
Electricity? I'm off grid. I could give a shit if you can't get power.
I got guns, gold, trees, a solar well, arable land, and a 300 foot mine shaft.

You have nothing without the Gov.?

What a sucker.

It's really interesting that there are Americans out there who think that people who respect the Constitution and wish it to be taken seriously again are "insane" or "tin foil hats".

FYI, the Constitution is the founding document of the United States of America.

It is not an "insane" document. And the people who respect it and want to follow it are not "insane".

Former Democrat

Perhaps you should be living somewhere else if you think the Constitution is a rag. We are the ONLY country that has such a document.

FYI: Following the Constitution is what made this country great. The farther we go away from it, the weaker we've become.

It's a sad state of affairs when support for getting back to the Constitution is thought of as "insane".

It's going to be painful for some, but if you need to register as a Republican to get Paul nominated, just do it. The stakes are too high not to.

To the poster who thinks Ron Paul could not be elected "small town sheriff":

Ahem.... he's already been elected to Congress, numerous times.

This race is being fought at the primary, not in 2008.

If Ron Paul were to get the Republican nomination, no Democrat would have a chance in the final election.

If you're on the fence, if you've never voted, if you hate Republicans, doesn't matter... if you like Ron Paul, please consider registering as a Republican to vote in the primary.

LOL!!!!!! I have to ask though, if you have absolutely no concern about your government or the other citizens of your country, why are you even part of this discussion?
