    Mr, Paul...here is a way to cut our debt. Let's take the money used for the health care for Congress a nd the Senate and use that money for infrastructure and jobs. It is our money and we pay for it and now we want it to go for jobs. Let them all see what teachers cops and firemen are living through. How about this Mr. Paul? Sounds as good as your plan even better.

      Why dont you ask that question to your respective congressperson? By the way, ron paul does not participate in any government funded healthcare program and does not participate in the government pension plan, why dont you read about his record you might be surprised or at the least make an informed opinion.

    Ron Paul, An American Citizen Vote For President ! We'll see but he's making honest sense. What are Ron Paul's solutions and how would he handle the economy differently ? Beam us in Scottie and take us to Occupy Wall Street and let us see these protests going on. Get us on the street with the camera's and start interviewing the people.Allow the American citizens to make up their own minds about what's going on.The poltician's opinion of what's going on with the protests ? We'll make up our own minds thank-you but so far very few camer's on the street interviewing. Where is the CNN Tent on the street for coverage ? Take us there to see !
    How much of that 60's old song,"Jumping Jack Gas....It's a blast " is going on ? Gather peacefully young Americans and behave yourself. Maybe the 70's generation needs to get out there wearing George Washington wigs and sunglasses to make sure these young American whippie snapper's are using their manners. That's why they call it the United States of America ! Cut ,Cap and Balance ! "Jobs Baby Jobs !":" Fair Tax Act ! Occupy Van Morrison and the Blues Brother's. and ask the Fire Department for a Fire Truck. Blast via fire truck speakers, "Everybody Needs Somebody to Love"....Go USA ! Grap your George Washington wig ! Get down there CNN !

    I have never had a nightmare about a "terrorist." What keeps me up at night is the fact that our civil liberties are fading away because politicians are auctioned to special interests like the military industrial complex. More than suicide bombers i fear the boot of the Federal Governments on my neck. Dr. Paul is 100% right.

    Counter-point on 2 issues :
    1) Current fiscal year deficit is $1.6 trillion. This new tax on the wealthy will be peanuts, comparitively speaking. The problem is not about government not taxing enough. The problem is with the levels of spending.
    2) Newt Gringrich is hopelessly misinformed about Constitution. In the case of Awlaki, president Obama's admin did not make any charges, there was no Trial. A U.S citizen does not become "enemy combatant" just because Obama says so.

    I strongly support Paul's position that further taxation on the wealthy is not the answer but removing tax benefits, entitlements, and bail-outs for the wealthy will generate more income for the government and level the playing field for the middle class and the poor. Also, reducing foreign aid and bringing home the troops are great ideas that Paul heavily promotes to re-ignite the economy. Paul 2012!
