Thread: RP IS paying attention to grassroots feedback

    Default RP IS paying attention to grassroots feedback

    His answer on Iran was excellent, He dropped all the "they can't even affod gasoline" line and got straight to the point. Iran isn't a threat but if they were he would go to congress for a declaration of war. Right ON!
    War; everything in the world wrong, evil and immoral combined into one and multiplied by millions.

    Yes, I thought that answer was excellent too.

    I have many friends in the libertarian movement who look down on those of us who get involved in political activity,
    he acknowledged, but "eventually, if you want to bring about changes what you have to do is participate in political
    action.
    -- Ron Paul


    "We do have some differences and our approaches will be different, but that makes him his own person. I mean why should he [Rand] be a clone and do everything and think just exactly as I have. I think it's an opportunity to be independent minded. We are about 99% the same on issues." "People Try To Drive Wedges Between Rand And Me." --Ron Paul

    It was a good answer, and The Daily Caller picked up on it..

    While Paul refused to rule out the possibility of war with Iran, he insisted a war would not be worthwhile and that the president should go to Congress before launching any military action.
    You can tell Ron was prepared well, and if given more time, he would have had more great moments. Onward to the next foreign policy debate.

    We sure wouldn't have these ten year fiascos that have been going on since WW2. And of course U.S. victory was never the goal or the purpose for the chickenhawks, it was and is perpetual war. As soon as Iraq started to wind down, the next target was being talked about and promoted. I swear there are some in the party (like McCain for instance) who think we MUST be involved in three wars or there is something wrong.

    That actually was a killer answer because he actually was on the side of the American people. Even with the bias I think RP did well with his answers. He flat out stood out with those answers. The American people Do NOT want to get dragged into another war.

    Yeah, the neocon desire is the constant 'presence' part MB was pushing for, regardless of conflicts. Nationbuilding.

    (clarification, I don't exactly classify MB as a neocon. I think she is useful to them, however.)

    My favorite part of the answer was the analogy of Iran war propaganda aligning with the Iraq war propaganda.

    That was my favorite part, too. Nothing carried more of a punch in that answer than that.

    He didn't rule out a strike, but said it he did, he'd go through Congress than get it down and over with. Pure gold.

    Ron Paul can slap down Bachmann or any other candidate in favor of torture by bringing up Ronald Reagan railing against torture and saying he stands with Reagan.

    I hear that a good deal of the staff of the campaign actually used to either write or lurk on RPF and DP.

    Dr. Ron Paul only surrounds himself with the best quality people.

    Ron rocked that answer. He said more in his 89 seconds than all those other buffoons combined.

    No one but Paul!

    He needs to hit hard on Obama. Pick a fight there. Esp on Obamacare. The old people eat it up.

    No, no one got less. I'm not sure about the exact times the other candidates got, though.

    CBS News Doesn’t Support the Troops

    That is, if gauging the amount of time CBS News allotted each candidate during the televised portion of last night’s Republican presidential debate compared to how much money our military donates to each candidate. This is not a scientific analysis—but it doesn’t exactly take a rocket scientist to figure out that Ron Paul got shafted on time last night (h/t RonPaulForums.com):

    CBS foreign policy debate and troop donation statistics:

    Paul – 1 question, 1 follow up, $113,739 from troops

    Perry – 5 questions, 2 follow ups, $7,325 from troops

    Gingrich – 5 questions, 1 follow up, $1,725 from troops

    Cain – 5 questions, 1 follow up, $9,518 from troops

    Romney – 4 questions, 1 follow up, $11,555 from troops

    Santorum – 3 questions, 2 follow ups, $750 from troops

    Bachmann – 3 questions, $7,182 from troops

    Huntsman – 2 questions, 1 follow up, $0 from troops
