    Time for a reality check for those out there who have been drinking to much of the State Propaganda koolaid.

    Senator Menendez was wanting to put Russia on the State Sponsor of Terror list and said.

    "The Kremlin continues to attack our democracy, support a war criminal in Syria, and violate Ukraine’s sovereignty.”


    Ron Paul's response:
    What say you ?

    I'll bet Ron Paul isn't flavour of the month in the Washington DC corridors of power? :roflol:

    That would make his rhetoric even more forceful then, wouldn't it? He appears to be a highly intelligent guy who isn't afraid to tell it like it is, and maybe Wx could do with more like him.

    Ron Paul has never not been the voice of reason.

    Ron Paul was always the voice of reason. But idiots from the Senate and Congress can't think logically. They only listen to the voice of the dollar.

    Like Trump, the establishment is afraid of him and ran smear campaigns on him when he ran for president.

    Ron Paul is an idiot. That’s why he didn’t become the president - when you please conspiracy freaks and throw wild ideas about multiple currencies that’s what you get.

    As usual all you have is ignorant name calling when you come across information that conflicts with the State Propaganda Koolaid bubble in which you live.

    It is not like it is some big secret that we meddle in the democratic processes of other nations - one of the reasons "Russiagate" is such nonsense but hey, don't let reality stop you from drinking the Liberal Koolaid.

    No doubt about that. But he is popular with a lot of Americans, including this one. He is perhaps the only Senator that is not a member of the swamp.

    Ron Paul is too sensible to be taken seriously by the blood thirsty warmongers inside the beltway.

    Don't give the idiots that excuse -
    Those "seemingly" idiotic are bought and paid for.



    We all know this is bipartisan corruption
    yet continue to play "their game" Red vs Blue
    as if Red & Blue were truly different.
    Maybe Red gets the even addresses on Wall St.
    And Blue get the odd addresses on Wall St.



    Amazingly Ron Paul, M.D. and to a lesser extent Rand Paul, M.D.
    cut through the jingoistic claims and reveal a truth so simple and less convoluted.
    What a shame people don't listen.
    Of course the Pauls are not favored by the Wall St. media. aka LSM.
    Similar to Bernie Sanders. Censorship by choosing a 3 day old repeated Hillary story over a current Sanders' story happened! Thus Ron Paul, M.D.'s message was similarly censored and too much editing makes him look foolish should they mention him.


    A few years ago I started to get friends to listen to Ron Paul, M.D.
    when they could and 100% were amazed that "kook" they were
    expecting was so clearly expressed, "right on".
    I remember the same with Peace Candidate Senator Eugene McCarthy, (not to be confused with "Joe")
    He also spoke to the need to stop the idea of, "Gilding the Ghettos" that doesn't make jobs.

    New sanctions on Russia were announced this week, this time because of the Skripal case, on the same day that Rand Paul gave Putin a letter from Trump calling for better relations between the two countries.

    Who's driving the damn boat???

    Oh come now, Obama & Hillary and theirs are on the same, "Sanctions We Must" mantra
    regarding Russia. A continuation of the misguided containment policies against the old USSR.

    It is a bipartisan diversion from what really matters.
    The diversion, pointing a finger at Russia while pocketing personal wealth
    and voting as the money masters require. It matters when it comes to all those, "Tax Reform" occurrences


    BTW has :flagus: :salute: "taken out" anyone on foreign soil lately?
    Since bin Laden. Really. Anyone know of any strange incidences over there?

    Ron Paul is basically the modern version of Thomas Jefferson, which is why he's hated by partisans on both sides of the political establishment.

    If a graduate of Duke Medical School and a surgeon in the Air Force is an idiot, then what does that make you?

    Basically every position he took.

    You have something against the free market? You prefer Soviet Communism, I take it?

    Great that you used the disgraced Robert Menendez as your source.

    Recall all the stories he was put on trial for corruption? Definitely true.

    https://www.nytimes.com/2015/04/02/...-menendez-indicted-on-corruption-charges.html

    So now that Paul explained the mystery surrounding the names called to the Russians, the debate is why did you use a man who was charged with serious crimes?
