“I can tell you that both Ron and Rand will have an important role in the convention and their supporters and ideals will be well represented,” said Jesse Benton, who managed Ron Paul’s presidential campaign.

An initial list of GOP convention speakers doesn’t include either Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) or his son, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.)

    First of all you are wrong!

    I took a screen shot of the headline I answered

    (click to enlarge)
    Liberty  Truth  Ron Paul

    Ron Paul is not a "Former Candidate" unless you are referring to the Republican party's grave mistake of election 2008.

    Ron Paul is currently a presidential candidate for election 2012. The only problem we have as a country is letting the main stream media elect our leaders for us.

    Why did they "black out" the "Campaign for Liberty" when they were clearly gaining more support than douche bag Romney?

    You didn't see this on TV did you?

    leaders black campaign liberty gaining support douche bag romney tv

    You didn't see this either.

    I hope Ron Paul pulls off a coup at the convention. Romney and Obama are both puppets of the NWO and the bankers, they offer no solutions to the problems we face as a country, they are both BS artists.

    Ron Paul tells you the truth and has the solutions. He can "lead by example" and wants America to do the same.

    Liberty  Truth  Ron Paul

    I take things with a grain of salt, from all sources until I can look into them. Some things are proven with evidence and others are made likely by a collection of circumstantial evidence, logical pattern, etc. I don't make a habit of dismissing things offhand just because of the source, but I do apply heavier filters to some.

    If I find someone to be a blatant and disgusting liar who has an obvious agenda, I would seek a different source of information. I haven't found that to be true of Alex Jones though. I believe he has an arrogant streak, is a poser at times, is rambunctious and explodes in insane tirades, but I've found some of his info to be useful and true, and I have to give him credit for going on television and yelling about Infowars.com while Barbara Walters looked like she had just laid an egg.

    LOL, well, I agree in part, but I don't think he's just in it for the money. I certainly don't trust him entirely, but have found Edit: (some)stories presented by him to be true and useful knowledge. I think the real credit goes to those who work under him though. His delusions of grandeur that he's some kind of leader of a patriot movement or something is the saddest part.

    I know, most of the world wants freedom. Does that somehow negate the message of the video?

    I'm also not a big fan of Alex Jones, he bores the hell out of me. However I did like the Obama Deception.

    Well so does Michael Moore, you have to expect that when it comes to hardcore left or right people. They're only presenting facts they themselves agree with or bending the truth or flat out lying. It would be refreshing for a documentary maker that was non-biased to cover a lot of this kind of stuff. We'd see it's a much bigger mix of events and not so black and white, right or wrong probably.

    Probably so, I don't question what happens in Moore's films as much as Jones. However a while back Moore did get caught misrepresenting a hospital for the film "Sicko" I believe it was called, he showed a clean hospital running off of social health care or whatever and the actual hospital was much more nastier than he showed in the film. i don't recall the specifics though, but there is still manipulation to some degree it seems. But probably not as much as Jone's films.

    This may be the report... of course fox news, so who knows how legit this even is.

    At the very least he should be acknowledged. Whether or not he should be "featured" depends on whether he is willing to give a speech to unify the party with his supporters. If Ron Paul could swing even two percentage points of the vote it could mean the difference between four more years of our national nightmare and the chance to recover from it. It's up to Ron Paul.

    If you really believe that stuff that Paul is pushing you would not support anyone running sans gary johnson.

    He should get all his college-age followers to storm the convention and declare him the nominee. I would actually tune in for that.

    He should be running against Obama instead of that gigantic douche Romney who basically wants to alienate any moderate considering voting for him.
