YouTube Video of Ron Paul’s Triumph in the GOP Debate

Here is a link to Ron Paul’s triumph in the Republican party presidential debate.

It is so refreshing to have a principled, honest champion of freedom running for president with one of the major parties.

Ron Paul will be in the South Carolina candidates’ debate on May 15.  I expect he will make the leading contenders once again look craven and contemptuous of the values of the American people.

Paul’s presidential campaign website is here.

    You’re so right…too bad MSNBC talking heads ignored it and said Rudy was the front runner…and Dick Morris, that idiot, claimed it was McCain who has literally no support in NH..
    Ron is the second highest fundraiser in NH!
    These guys can’t even get contributions.

    I hope you’re right, sir. While there is virtually zero probability that he will win the nominee, I do hope that he creates a large stir. This will, at the very least, educate some people to ideas of freedom and liberty. (Doesn’t it say something that I have to say that? People have to be educated to what freedom and liberty is all about in today’s day and age. Hmm…)

    It is a joy to see how much anxiety Ron Paul’s success has always sparked among Establishment talking heads.

    These rascals got a lot more sweating ahead of them.

    It is interesting to note the contrast between the media reactions to Mike Gravel after the Dem’s debate and Dr. Paul after the GOP debate. Gravel was marginalized as an old scary kook. Ron Paul was simply ignored by many.

    ABC News left Paul off of an online poll and MSNBC does not have a candidate’s page on Paul (even though they have pages for undeclared candidates).

    Apparently, certain media types can’t see Dr. Paul – as if he is the invisible man. You would think that they would at least see his suit standing on the stage. After all, I was able to see a few empty suits standing on the stage next to him.

    I could clearly see one scary old kook at the GOP debate – McCain. The craziest thing is that there is an emerging meme among some circles that the winner of the GOP debate was Fred Thompson and I didn’t even see his empty suit standing on stage.

    Is it possible that the invisible candidate Fred Thompson was there with no clothes on?

    Paul and Kucinich are both constantly derided as “crazy” but among the candidates- those two are on public record as having the foresight to see what a disaster Iraq would be.

    I wish we had more crazies like those two.

    Looking at the disconnect between the results of public polling about who “won” last thursday’s debate and the breezy pronouncements of the media hacks, one really wonders how this public has gotten such an appetite for watching most of our media prognosticators.
    Then again, cognitive dissonance is the new pastime. The vaunted N.Y. Times simply mentioned Paul as one of the “also-rans”…which may be true but his comments were a breath of fresh air amongst the typical platitudes or war-industry hysteria.

    Is Paul in the CNN and Fox debates? I heard he was declined participation?

    I trust Mr. Paul has a sense of humor because he has spent so much time in the Congress. Because humor seems to be one of the last remaining ways to penetrate the prevailing iron curtain of cognitive dissonance surrounding the Public, Mr. Paul should hire a good comic writer and , like Reagan, Kennedy, and others, use humor to really lay these rascals out. Some ignoramus dismissed Paul because he looked like “My Favorite Martian” in comparison to Slick Mitt, the Big Money Mormon Matinee Idol…..well, the best comedians are usually a little , ahem, physiologically challenged and so again, comedy will work wonders……… We don’t need a Henny Youngman or Rodney Dangerfield or Don Rickles in the White House but a candidate for Chief Executive who can display a sharp sense of humor, to augment his earnest command of the issues will find themselves steadily rising in the polls and getting alot of attention.

    Watching McCain smirk as Mr. Paul summarized the authentic conservative record from Ike to Taft was entirely illuminating. So was hearing that crank Hunter reply that the “best” of America was, of all things “precision armaments that can take-out Zarqawi’s safe house in Iraq”.
    By in large, the Republican slate goes from the insane to certifiably insane.

    You’re right Jim, it is a relief and gratifying to see a prepared candidate like Mr. Paul speak to the traditions of the Republic and actually gain notice. A few months will tell whether this is an aberation or a refreshing change. In the meantime, I’ve been extolling his virtues literally right and left….

    Of course I will never find a candidate that agrees with me on everything, but how does a libertarian argue for more border controls? Ron Paul doesn’t seem to like immigrants much.
