You and Ron Paul the Texas Troll claim to defend the Constitution...but really you want to "Change" the Constitution. Ron Paul is a fool.
Enjoyed checking your blog out... you didn't have near the comments you'd claimed. It is great that you are venting your conspiracy theories though.
Ron Paul has had TWENTY YEARS in Washington and has not done anything but make himself rich.
I've never heard so many foolish ideas come from someone who is running for President.
Too bad you have positioned yourself on the wrong side of history. Freedom is on the march.

"Changing" the Constitution is Constitutional. It is easy to defend the Constitution and change it too. The problem is how badly it has been ignored. Obviously that is what you endorse if you don't like at least my Amendment 35.

Now I have as many regular commentators as you. :)

Ever wondered how it is that our hours of service rules are never voted on? It's called "regulation without representation" and it happens with every single Department of the Federal Government.

Ron Paul has spent twenty years in Congress doing the right thing, representing his constituents, not his party or president. If we had more of him our Country would not be borrowing almost 3 billion dollars a day from China, Japan, and Saudi Arabia.

Freedom is on the march, and the face of freedom today is Ron Paul. It's too bad you have positioned yourself with the willing slaves.

"It is no accident that inflationary policies are generally advocated by those who want more government control The increased dependence of the individual upon government which inflation produces and the demand for more government action to which this leads may for the socialist be an argument in its favor All who wish to stop the drift toward increasing control should concentrate their efforts on monetary policies." -Nobel Prize winner Friedrich Von Hayek

Interesting site: I enjoyed your postings and please stay with the Ron Paul fight. If you are interested in more information regarding the 17th Amendment, please check out my weblog, Repeal the 17th Amendment. I have posted a number of scholarly articles on the right hand side of the page that provide the history and consequences of the amendment. Also I provide information about the US Senate and other involved in discussing the need to repeal the amendment.

Best regards,
