of that happening.
Wow, we agree on something. Lol.

Is it right that 1 man, the President, should force the entire population to do something that he thinks is right? As a previous poster mentioned, LBJ bypassed "the elected people to represent us and speak for us" to usher in this nightmare known as integration. Kindly quote where I said that it's in the Constitution that every important matter comes to a vote, or else please retract your spurious and hyperbolic assertion, thanks.
<quoted text>
The need for Affirmitive Action for blacks is as good as indicator as any that we are not all the same. We spend billions of $ every year in an attempt to do the impossible. Equal opportunity certainly doe not mean "equal outcome." What really irks me is this money could be much better spent repairing things at home, like re-building the nation's infrastructure, and funding medical breakthroughs. There is nothing more laughable then the people who mistakenly beleive that "we are all the same." During the Jim Crow era, any black-on-whatever crime was far less common, because they were actually punished for it. Our system has turned 'crime' into a leisurely stay in an all-exclusive hotel with fitness facilities and any food you can think up an excuse for.
60 years of forced integration has created more racial strife and hatred then the Jim Crow era ever did, not to mention it also set back blacks 400 years. Non-white people usually prefer to live amongst themselves, but white people are not allowed to; they are called racist by the left when they begin to gather amongst themselves, yet Chinatown and the Bronx can have 99% non-whites and be perfectly fine. It really must be a burden to be so facetious! Segregation is the way most people prefer to live, now their are a few exceptions of course, but for the most part it is in par. "Birds of a feather flock together."
<quoted text>
Your point being? Ron Paul neither associates with them or supports them. Obama has lambasted Bain Capital, yet in 2008 and in 2011 he recieved campaign donations from them. So it's okay if Obama keeps their money, but Ron Paul should give money back from people who he doesn't support? Hypocritical much? In 2008 the New Black Panther party had their symbol and endorsement on Obama's web page. How would the left react if a white nationalist party had their endorsement on Ron Paul's webpage? It must be hard being this much of a hypocrite!

Again..you referred to me when I haven't even started to debate with you on this issue in a while. You were speaking to Lorax. This has been the third incident where you mistakenly assume it's CNP just because I'm against prohibition. I've made my position well know..(so has science) Prohibition does not, will not, and will never work. At least I have the mental faculty to recognize not to debate you over and over on the same point, while hoping you will change your mind.

I'll just take your apology (which will be due) and continue. We just disagree in certain social issues.

Your right, this thing gets stranger and stranger every month. The one thing that bothers me most is that some folks are in a real tissy about the Constitution not being follow for the last umpteen years and yet will toss their vote away on a known loser who didn't have a snowballs chance of ever winning.
So the bottom line is, what will they do now, not vote, or vote for the Republicans, or maybe the dipsy doodle party or the Dem's that have trampled all over the Constitution. If they vote, it's not who they really wanted.
Every day I'm reminded how short life really is. A old pal, I've known for 30+ years, just had to get a pacemaker. Guys I served with seem to be dropping like flys.

Well, Ron Paul is MUCH MORE than just a candidate for President of the United States. He is in the forefront battling for the heart and soul of America.

Against who???? Against a GLOBALIST OLIGARCHY who has created Global Chaos and Wars to further their agenda AND, being GLOBALISTS, have worked to undermine democracy and destroy the middle-class in the US.

The power of the Oligarchy is their ability to create a FALSE NARRITIVE thru their control of the MSM, Academia and Hollywood AND much of their funding comes from taking money from the Federal Reserve.

The UN was created by them and does their bidding. Now, of course they will make sure Paul does not become President; BUT Paul, and other Americans, can still be victorious in CRITICAL ISSUES involving Internet Freedom and exposing the Federal Reserve's financial dealings.

From one in their INNER CIRCLE, a simple explanation.

David Rockefeller

"Some even believe we (the Rockefeller family) are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global, political and economic structure--one world if you will. If that is the charge, I stand guilty, and am proud of it."

Memoirs, p 405

PS: You are correct about BOTH parties----as the GLOBALISTS have their underlings in the Republican and Democtaric Party. Also, there are Republicans and Democrats not under their control.

Good grief, my nearsighted friend, you are one bombastic
and mouthy self-proclaimed expert in all things.
My clear intention in raising the question was to ask you
to name one country or culture that has been raised or
brought to a higher level level because of a decision to
make drugs readily available. You came up with a pathetic
example of the UK, which is in a clear state of decline and
will continue to be in decline.
Please forgive me for ignoring your crap about the War on
Drugs being racist. If you had an ounce of integrity you
would admit that the vast majority of criminal cases
resulting in guilty verdicts or pleas are the result of
pleas to a LESSER charge. Put simply, for foggy-headed
clowns, they chose to serve short sentences for marijuana
rather than chin up to more serious charges. I'm not in
favor of those easy-outs, bucko. I'm in favor of letting
marijuana become nothing more than tobacco.
You must be smoking some of that drug you would approve of. They can not and do not plea bargain to change the substance of the charge. They may plea bargain for lesser sentences but cocaine does not somehow turn to marijuana. My statements are based on several years of research and I have written several papers on the topic including one the resides in the second largest university in the country. So go peddle you double sided logic elsewhere and realize that your crusade is as hypocritical as it gets. And it is FACT that the war on drugs, regardless of its intentions or supposed implementation within our justice system does disproportionately incarcerate black men 18-35, thus becoming fully worthy of my claim that in is indeed INSTITUTIONAL RACISM. Continue to preach about the individual and protect the actions of the government - your are a statist.

You're absolutely correct my friend, the majority is not behind Paul NOW, mostly due to the media blackout- they are not recieving his message. But if by chance he became the nominee, the media would be forced to cover his rallies and speeches because obama cannot run against himself!

When people see on their tevee sets that this guy with 2 first names attracts 1000s of people at his rallies, and they hear his passion and common sense, they will ask themselves why they never heard of Ron Paul, and be mad as hell that they voted for Romney over Paul.

I'm certain almost every American agrees with Ron Paul on at least 1 issue, they just don't know it yet.

Nobody's worried about his support, as if he would get fair coverage, it's only common sense and the majority will flock to it like flies on shit!

I am praying to high heaven that Romney does not mess up his VP choice out the window like McWar did.

Charlie Christie, Marco Rubio and the win is in the bag...Bachmann, Palin or any other nutjob (besides Paul, he can have a cabinet seat..((hopefully head of state or economic affairs)) and we will win this thing.(overturn Obamacare!!!#1 priority) that and getting us OUT of war..(but hey..they are neoc0ons..what would the U.S be like without needless violent instigation and meddling of other countries internal affairs)

First, if the MSM, aka the LIARS(Liberal Intelligentsia And Rich Socialists) Club, took down Hillary on orders from the OLIGARCHY, then, certainly, they were not gonna let McCain/Palin defeat their Uncle Tom.

They will try to re-elect him, BUT with his failed Presidency so embarassing, it will be difficult.

As to Paul, he is a 180 degrees different on Mitt Romney in the foreign affairs arena so any cabinet post would have to be on the domestic side where there is some compatibility.

Zach baby, wake up and smell the coffee. Ron Paul is not going
to the the nominee of the Republican Party.

For years now we have been listening on the thread or forum about
how Ron Paul has been "blacked out" by the media. It may have
been so in 2008, but not in 2012. Put simply for the dogmatically
slow paleo-conservatives, Paul has offered nothing, presented
nothing, or said anything to capture the imaginations or hearts
of 90% of Americans.

Your guy, who you believe will correct the nation's course, has
never in his career been able to bring a bill of any significance
whatsoever through Congress about ANYTHING. That includes your
precious anti-Fed bill which will, as you know, be diluted down
to insignificance. He is, on the face of sheer statistics, one
of the most ineffective legislators in the history of Congress.
At the same time I believe I must acknowledge that momentous bill
acknowledging the prowess of a Kansas football team.

All of this is beside the point. Paul is not going to be the
nominee. Period. Done. Finished. It is over. To believe
anything other than this borders on insanity.

Now, you can be like any number of phonies who registered
REpublican (i.e. registered Paul) and seek some silly solace
in the Constitution Party or the Green Party or whatever,
but it only proves what the standard beaers of the party, for
good or ill, have been saying all along: You never were a
Republican from the start. You've been posing.

And hey, I'm all okay with that. I just insist that we
recognize it for what is has been from the start ... an
Alinsky styled attempt to gain control the Republican Party.
Sadly you are like many if not all on this thread who
confuse winning in the silly stuff translates to victory
in the real world.
