Ron Paul should have been President.
Trump is my President (1 year ago)
It was one of the VERY FIRST THINGS TRUMP DID. If your too stupid to understand that The president can not outright FIRE elected officials. He CAN and DID however impose term limits on them via executive order. MOST congressman will be ineligible to run in this very next election (Congress has elections every 2 years) Senators serve 6 year terms, BUT 3/4 of the current sitting senators are up for re-election on this very next election cycle, or at least they would have been. But not anymore because about 490 of the 535 in the house are ALL already past the term limit. Meaning ineligible to run for public office again. They wont even be a choice to vote on, on the ticket. Mark my words 90% of current congress and senate will be GONE (Meaning Swamp will be Drained) BEFORE the 2020 presidential election.

It is so unfair... The republican Ron Paul being as he said "hesitant" and bashful toward the 2016 republican elected president. The respected mister Ron Paul wants an Amsterdam America, when obviously knows near to nothing about Amsterdam. The public wants fairy tales from him, and he is not delivering anything else but utopic and unmotivational speeches. Why would any decision factors would even think twice about this no doubt inteligent but misplaced political guru? He was not truely invested in anything, with the convenient excuse: I am only one person, I cannot do more than that!

Will not happen with Mutt Rmoney as Secretary of state! (get Gowdy, Rand or somebody)
Many of his picks are Wall Street bankers, billionaires, and same Washington politicians. Very skeptical that we will have good changes needed like lower tax, efficient government, reduce deficit, build/invest modern infrastructure(rail, high speed trains), renewable energy,low/zero college, reduce war spending, climate, clean up Wall Street too big to fail(and bailouts by tax money), tax reform, promote worker cooperatives, prosecute Wall Street criminals, audit the fed etc.

mark jones (1 year ago)
Trump has already proved that he is better at this than Ron Paul. Can you say, sore loser? The FBI exposed the shadow government on the seventh floor to the world, the people in control of Hillary's investigation. Trump knows enough and what he doesn't know, people like General Flynn and others know. He doesn't need Ron Paul, the guy who's butt hurt because Trump put Jr. out of the primary's. Ron Paul is Clinton lite. He is going to be on the sidelines criticizes everything Trump does.

Don't worry Ron, when he throws the plunger over the drain, you'll see how the crap goes down. Since everyone else lost their careers, I could care less who loses their's over on the Hill....let em work over at McDonald's, it's a good experience.

Mr. Ron Paul is a straight guy. I like Ron of his sincerity and experience. But I believe the swamp can be drained as much as Mr. President-Elect will do.

Ron Paul would definitely be assassinated if he ever had the opportunity to end the Federal Reserve. JFK tried to do that with Bill # 11110 and we see where that got him yup their not ever gonna cede that kinda power over to many hands involved it's easier to simply eliminate the threat..

Draining the swamp has to come from the top. If Trump is on the hunt for swampees , he should be effective. There is no one above him to squash his efforts.

He can fire and hire and if we remove the Zionists out of the military we will drain the swamp and Trump is Commander in Chief you Ron should become Secretary of State we do not need to do anything for the military. Get rid of the Fed and create our own currency.

Jack Hyatt Trump announced that he will no longer press Hillary's case...Just think about it! It's not the President's responsibility to pressure Hillary or any suspect. Nor does the President investigate crimes; doesn't interrigate suspects either..Crimes are the responsibility of the FBI and the AG, of the State Dept.Their duties are investigation, interrigation and indictment of any person that has committed a crime and will be charged quilty. Congress does their oversite investigation. Head if The FBI provides his recommendation to the AG. If The suspect is found quilty the case is passed to the President for indictment. The president reviews, approves and signs the indictment.. Viola! President doesn't handle an entire case. Of course that makes Trump correct 👍. He therefore made the following announcement. Trump will no longer press Hillary Clinton

hes playing them at their own game,as he wont do anything until hes in office, and evan then I expect the decision would be up to the chief prosecutor, so he is being honest, just economical with the truth.

Ron Paul's  "swamp"  was full of money therefore that's why he and the others wanted to drain it.    Trump doesn't need to line his pockets over the next 4 years for his  "retirement"  fund which is fundamental to how politicians have viewed the swamp.

dude all these people being negative and trump isnt even president yet

This is the best opportunity we have had in years to get some of the corruption out of Washington, and Ron Paul wants to squeal about "if he can do it completely"....... I never thought I'd say this.... But he needs to retire..... This is part of the problem with conservatives and libertarians. Liberals will accept any candidate, no matter how corrupt, so long as he moves one of their regressive balls backwards for them. Conservatives will eat their own if they disagree on one of 100 items.

Ron Paul is right. Unless the establishment tries to use Trump like a puppet, the establishment will not allow Trump to move far. And if he does, then they will try to get rid of him... just like John Kennedy.

The big words are self destruct the economy that can happen before Trump drains the swamp, its heart breaking thats how is has to happen, or first get rid of the Fed,reserve, bring back all our troops, cut military spending limit government cut departments and cut the income tax
Paul Smit (1 year ago)
He better start drain his own corrupt swamp, Donald Trump is heading to the White House with numerous private lawsuits. The president-elect has been party to some 4,000 lawsuits over the last 30 years and is currently facing 75 active lawsuits.
Paul Smit (1 year ago)
Trump's proposed tax cuts for the wealthy will not stimulate growth; have not done the Bush tax cuts (the growth is not inhibited by high taxes for the rich, but by the lack of purchasing power of the middle class). Tax cuts will probably contribute to a higher budget deficit and an accelerated increase in the national debt. President Trump will Congress and former President Obama this blame.
Canteenboy117 (1 year ago)
Paul Smit I think Obama will go down as the worst president of all time economically speaking. He increased the debt more than any president in history, which is really sad because he came after that piece of shit George Bush. America couldn't roll with Obama's or Hillary's plans any longer. We will still have debt problems, but just another politician in the White House, to me, was unacceptable. And don't try to bring up any of the standard, he's racist, sexist. I do not care, I am worried about the debt. I will tell you I'm damn wrong if Trump doesn't nothing about the debt, I just know Hillary wouldn't have done anything about it. If Obama was able to be president for 25 years total, the debt would exponentially increase and the government couldn't even lie about being able to play it off eventually. Inflation would run rampant and America would be a shell of itself for a long ass time, maybe forever. If you aren't from America, which I don't think you are, don't worry about our elections. All you will ever hear from our mainstream media is about how Hillary was so great and it's such a tragedy she lost! It's fucking laughable.
Paul Smit (1 year ago)
I do not trust him. I personally think that Hilary has a better plan for America. Remember that Obama could have done more, but he has always worked against the Republicans. They have blocked many of his plans. You are blinded by empty promises and lies. He mixes his lies almost always with truth or with anything resembling truth. A strange way of doing business.The Democrats should never spend money as they are in power, but when the Republicans are in power they hrow money with no problems. So they are the good guys, and the Democrats Always have to fix there spilling of TAX dollars when they are in power. Trump wil make his inperium great again and don't give a fuck abouth annybody else. It's all abouth Trump & Trump alone. He will not be serving four years by coruptie and conflict of interest, and it will all be fine promises.There comes a time when you will regret that you did not choose Hillary. it was the way forward, instead of backward with Trump & his swamp. He say what you want to hear, not what he thinks himself and his real plan. Beware of whats coming with this monster. May God keep you safe from what will come.Donald Trump Building Team of Deplorable Racists

How to become bitcoin trader? Exactly like Bitcoin, multiple digital currencies exist in the marketplace. So if you prefer to buy a few other currencies which aren`t available on Indian Exchange than you can utilize Bittrex. All you have to do is locate an exchange that you favor. Cryptocurrency exchanges have a massive potential to modify peoples minds and opinions concerning cryptocurrencies generally speaking and their application in actual life. So even in the event the exchange is attacked, its still true that you have your money. Furthermore, the exchanges prepare each and every industry for Bitcoin expansion. Existing stock exchanges will also compete to be able to fulfill the users configuration requirements. Sooner or later later on, the prices will grow more equal, meeting somewhere in the middleyour profit is equivalent to the quantity of convergence. No matter how far it is from Kijun, it is likely to return and test that level at some point. The amount of bitcoin is perpetually changing. In the US, it is 1000 USD. Whats even better, seek the services of a seasoned lawyer or at least ask for an in depth consultation. So youve read the newspaper about the meteoric growth of crypto currencies including Bitcoin or Ripple. Then coming up with 1000s of exchange rates simply to go out and get groceries is nearly impossible. Many cities around the world provide a bitcoin ATM where you are able to trade cash for bitcoin. The cryptocurrency world isn`t efficient.
