Governor Romney, that raises the question,
if you were president of the United States, would you need to go to Congress to get authorization
to take military action against Iran’s nuclear facilities? You sit down with your attorneys and tell
you want you have to do, but obviously the president of the United States has to do what’s
in the best interest of the United States to protect us against a potential threat.
The president did that as he was planning on moving into Iraq and received the authorization
of Congress… Did he need it? You know, we’re going to let the lawyers sort
out what he needed to do and what he didn’t need to do. But, certainly, what you want
to do is to have the agreement of all the people — leadership of our government as
well as our friends around the world where those circumstances are available. But the key thing here is to make sure we
don’t have to use military action against Iran. That’s what you hope to be able to do
and that’s why we’re going to put a lot tougher sanctions on Iran — economic sanctions, credit
sanctions. We’re also going to have to get serious about
treating Ahmadinejad like the rogue and bafoon that he is. And it was outrageous for the
United Nations to invite him to come to this country. It was outrageous for Columbia to
invite him to speak at their university. This is a person denied the Holocaust, a person
who has spoken about genocide, is seeking the means to carry it out. And it is unacceptable
to this country to allow that individual to have he control of launching a nuclear weapon. And so we will take the action necessary to
keep that from happening. And I think each person on the stage, certainly
in my case, I would make sure that we would take the action necessary to keep Iran from
having a nuclear weapon. I guess I want to get to the basic constitutional
view here of you gentlemen Congressman Paul, do you believe the president
needs authorization of Congress to attack strategic targets in Iran, nuclear facilities? Absolutely. This idea of going and talking
to attorneys totally baffles me. Why don’t we just open up the Constitution and read
it? You’re not allowed to go to war without a declaration of war. Now, as far as fleeting enemies go, yes. If
there’s an imminent attack on us. We’ve never had that happen in 220 years. The thought that the Iranians could pose an
imminent attack on the United States is preposterous. There’s no way. This is just… (CROSSTALK) This is — this is just war propaganda, continued
war propaganda, preparing this nation to go to war and spread this war not only in Iraq,
but into Iran, unconstitutionally. It is a road to disaster for us as a nation. It’s
a road to our financial disaster if we don’t read the Constitution once in a while. (APPLAUSE)

    Not sure why they're clapping yet didn't vote for the guy, CLEARLY he was warning us… yet nobody listened.

  • sfiorare Post author

    ron paul said the constitution says only gold and silver can be legal tender

    it doesn't say that

    if you come back with something out of section 10 powers prohibited of states, i'll know you're a complete idiot

  • sfiorare Post author

    The wisdom a man speaks does not die with the passage of time.

  • TheCashistrash Post author

    and you are a neo-con fascist the people who follow Ron Paul and people like him are people that are awake to what is going on in our society and realize people like you are the problem. what you morons don't realize is all the excessive spending and waste will come back one day and affect everyone including the elite. There is no point in being able to fight 4 ongoing wars when our economy is crumbling. that money should be used in a better way building our economy.

  • sfiorare Post author

    you really have to be an idiot to think i'm a neo-con

    and what country produces more goods & services than the usa?

  • sfiorare Post author

    the point is that you can't speak for him

  • HandyMan101 Post author

    I don't need to.

    I read books. You know.. Quotes from the man himself?

    see it has nothing to do with race anymore when we have a black man in office and a republican candidate that exposes the USA for what it is.

    I would say to you that resolution is totally unconstitutional in the first place so it doesn't apply!

    Possibly even less far unless we're giving his name similar weight as it has held historically.

  • Brendan Beckett Post author

    Well, that thing about fucking his slaves would be a bit of a scandal, so I don't think political theory would even come into play.

  • Luke Cage Post author

    You are a fucking nobody, kissing Robmey's corrupt ass but lecturing Ron Paul Anything that is repugnant to the Constitution is never a law and invalid on the face of it. Just like the Patriot Act, NDAA etc.

  • Luke Cage Post author

    LMAO these scum today are not democrats, they're socialist, communist fascist criminals. JFK wouldn't recognize the Libtard Party today just as there are no true conservatives left, just neo-cons.

  • Luke Cage Post author

    It never had anything to do w/ "race". Also, there is no such thing as "race", just ethnicities. We are ALL the human race. Fascism has a half black face now but hes oppressing blacks just as much as anyone else. Its about power and control. Obumma's real color is green, the color of Bankster money.

  • Ben Post author

    Mitt was the Mel Kuyper of politics.

  • Joe Smith Post author

    Need to know what was a deal among with M Romney, J Bush, and John Ramsey who is JBRamsey's father… How many children has been sacrificed?

  • ghostsade3 Post author

    This is so goddamned true. People might be like "How do you know he wouldn't change his beliefs to adopt to our modern world and our modern political landscape?" Bullshit, that man (Thomas Jefferson) was a principled believer in as little government as possible.

  • EminemLilWayne50Cent Post author

    Ron Paul is their next target.. the gov is going to kill that man. Every second, we are near the truth, Ron Paul knows what he is talking about and it is governments next target!

  • devsun2 Post author

    The 'wipe Israel of the map' is a misquote widely used by the warmongering mainstream media.The proper translation is 'Remove the current Israeli administration from the pages of time',which is more akin to saying that a particular administration ought to be changed,rather than genocide.For example,saying you want the current establishment US government out of office is not the same as calling for the genocide of the american people.Sadly,our wars have nothing to do with moral compulsion at all.

  • ghostsade3 Post author

    I think it does matter who exactly has nukes. Russia is no longer the main nuclear concern (though they have a TON of WMDs just floating around, free for anyone to take them), they are no longer our ideological enemies. A theocracy, particularly an Islamic theocracy that believes in conquering the world for the faith, should not be trusted to not use nukes were they to have it. That is not to say that Iran is currently an irrational Islamic theocracy. We should worry about them, but not as much.

  • ghostsade3 Post author

    No way. I hope you are trolling, Ron Paul has been speaking against the government for years, as have dozens of other prominent public figures…there is no conspiracy, and even if there is a huge government conspiracy, the time one is justified in believing in it is when there is extraordinary evidence, and not before…

  • ghostsade3 Post author

    Doesn't want to wage genocide against Israel, Hezbollah does not have mushroom clouds on it's flags, Hitchens saw it once when he was in Lebanon I believe, it doesn't make it their official flag, also, yes, not all interventions are unjustified, but there has to be a STRONG justification to warrant our invasion of any country, we are not supposed to be this careless police nation that just does what it wants because it is the sole superpower in the world. Sanctions have caused deaths of children

  • EminemLilWayne50Cent Post author

    I'm not trolling, i'm just an explorer! I hope one day the justice will come and all that lies and hiding stuff that US has brought up will turn the a living hell, i seriously hate US (not the people) their political system! And ofcourse some people, because theyre dumb to realize what is going on in their country. Like before they said, burn down cuba, look at them now.. they atleast have health ensurance and care about people, but US doesnt!! They care about competing, stealing and killing!!!!

  • EminemLilWayne50Cent Post author

    To check a broken leg in US costs up to 5-7000 doller and medical drugs and vacination cost over 3-5000. In cuba is like 50 cents, just realize what theyre doing to people in America. This may be a little bit of topic but its similar! AMERICANSSS need to protest and stand up for freedom!! Heil Martin Luther King, he was the only one who cared about people! i think its enough to say something more!

  • ghostsade3 Post author

    Lol you are so wrong. I hope you're joking.

  • EminemLilWayne50Cent Post author

    no actaully, i recommend you to watch a documentar film about health care in america (health ensurance) "SiCKO"

  • EminemLilWayne50Cent Post author

    Watch the documentary "SiCKO". I recommend you!

  • EminemLilWayne50Cent Post author

    and then you will realize how shit country is america!

  • Ben Post author

    Everyone just look up Obama calls Howard Stern. Let that lighten the mood.

  • Droogie128 Post author

    It isn't about moderacy, conservative, liberal, etc. It's just about looking at a problem and approaching it from an objective and rational standpoint. These words are usually used as propaganda to demonize anyone with an opposing view. They're the most misused words in our vocabulary.

    White countries are being blended out of existence by a flood of 3rd world immigration & government FORCED integration

    No white neighborhoods, schools, cities – everything "white" is viewed as suspicious

    Catchy slogans like "diversity" & "multiculturalism" in reality mean "there must be FEWER whites"

    Non-white countries are NEVER targeted by these trojan horses; ONLY white countries are

    Instead of bombs & bullets, it's a clever, insidious genocide of white people thru social engineering

  • attackfighter Post author

    When is the last time a politician actually read something? As far as I'm concerned I see all of these pictures of Obama and George Bush drinking alcohol and smoking pot in their younger years, but not a single picture of them reading a book. It is true: frat boys run America.
