Someone forgot to tell Congressman Ron Paul what he could & couldn’t think & say.

Via on Jul 18, 2011

My kind of Republican: non-intervention, get government interference out of our lives (including incompetent TSA & anti-gay rights bigotry)…freedom.

Republicans agree with Ron Paul, overall. Liberals agree with Ron Paul, overall.

“I don’t believe for a minute the TSA makes us safer and they consume a lot of money. It’s a false illusion that if you give up your freedoms you’re going to be safer.”

“Bring the troops home. Don’t incite those individuals who would like to be left alone and then they join the Taliban or Al Qaeda…they resent us bombing them and killing civilians and occupying their lands…we win a lot more with peaceful negotiations.”

If a liberal said that, he’d / she’d be strung up.

There are so many great quotes in this brief interview, I’ll just shut up and let you get to it:

    The world is a safer place because TSA found my glass diamond nail file and confiscated it with my travel dance hoop. Secure and unmanicured…

    Thank you very much for posting. I don't believe in the left-right wing paradigm. Even though he's Republican, I tend to agree with him a lot.

    THANK YOU WAYLON. UNLIKE THE MASS MURDERER BARACK OBAMA, THE CORPORATE PUPPET, RON PAUL IS THE ONLY CANDIDATE THAT REMOTELY PERSONIFIES YOGIC VALUES. THANK YOU FOR POSTING
