    What a legend! I have the highest respect for this great man. The only sane voice in American politics has left the building.

    Banned by the media - lobbyists, military industrial complex, AIPAC and Banks mafia weren't happy with him.

    He retired from Congress, and is now on a speaking tour of college campuses to engage young people directly. He is continuing his work quite diligently.

    His views resonate with a lot of Americans, particularly young folk.

    Ron Paul is a kook and his son Rand Paul is not that far behind.

    The US media did not 'ban' him. As much as I despise the current US media as an institution, the fact that he is in speaking demand mean the system works: That he is free to speak and to prosyletize to anyone who want to see/hear him.

    Paul is easy to agree with -- on principled grounds. However, it is necessary for politicians to compromise at the practical and pragmatic level in order to maintain the country. When pressed often for details on how he can be the country's maintenance man, so to speak, he has none. He is one of those who demand instantaneous change and refuses to budge. Conservatives and Republicans generally stay away from him -- rightly. The conservative magazine National Review have no problems telling its readers on how often Paul is wrong on everything from economics to foreign affairs -- with details.

    And on and on...

    This is not counting the Pauls' under the table relationships with racists. Even the closet Klansman Pat Buchanan is more evident than the Pauls about race.

    Even Dr. Paul is a white nationalist, i do still respect him nonetheless, the white nationalists who only want to preserve their own race got nothing wrong with it.

    It is absolutely normal to keep a bunch of freeloaders like you away from their women.

    It takes all sorts of opinions, views and associations to lend variety to the US political landscape.

    Yes, some of what he says makes sense. Ron Paul's contribution is that he provokes questions and thoughts on the best way to move forward while keeping in mind the basic principles that he champions so well.

    Most of his thinking are impractical and he was impractical. What he wanted was relinquish everything that US has painstaking build for two centuries for what is now called US of A.

    His thinking is useful in reminding people of the basics. That, in and of itself, does serve a useful purpose.
