    Ron Paul ” I was married ,had two kids and I went ” = K.O Punch
    Ron Paul ” Having deferments, and chicken necks and then putting out kids to war” = Windmill kick everyone on stage
    Ron Paul “Don’t interrupt me” in a soft voice= Making Santorum shut up =R.I.P Santorum 2012 campaign .

    • TheSwash.com January 7, 2012 - 11:45 PM

      Paul did throw some great KO punches tonight.

  • RichardTheRoman January 7, 2012 - 11:27 PM

    Once again, another win for Ron Paul! Wake up America!!

  • Pauly January 7, 2012 - 11:41 PM

    Ron paul is the only one who doesnt serve special interest. He is the only one who serves America and it’s peoples’ interest, solely.

    To those voting for Newt, I’m not trying to start a flame war but tell us why you think he won tonight.

  • frodo January 8, 2012 - 12:05 AM

    Newt won because he is the only candidate up there that knows HOW he is going to accomplish what he intends to do .(also that knows he is in the Republican primary not the Democratic)

    • TheSwash.com January 8, 2012 - 12:13 AM

      Frodo: Ron Paul also knows how he is going to accomplish what he intends to do. It’s all written down on this thing called the Constitution. Newt would rather ignore the Constitution and usher in a new age for America. In fact, Jack Hunter did a really good video about it.

  • “Newt” is the perfect name for a slimy lizard! January 8, 2012 - 12:07 AM

    CFR has a list of its members. Look who falls under “G”… I’m not surprised … Geithner and Gingrich are both there.

    Look for your other favorites in this very extensive list.


    This is an accurate gov listing..

  • Verybadkitten January 8, 2012 - 12:31 AM

    Poor Newt. But hey! He should have known better after that crazy tantrum he threw back in 2002 was it? I kind of feel sorry for him. You can tell he doesn’t want to be in this race but the establishment just doesn’t know who they can pit against Ron Paul – who of course, must be stopped! Hell, if I were war-mongering, back-room deal cutting criminal, stealing from hard working Americans, I’d be pushing everybody and anybody that can fool the people one more time! Let Newt Go you bastards! He doesn’t need the pain and humiliation.

  • jabberjaws January 8, 2012 - 12:53 AM

    Ron Paul supporters need to go on about someone and post their little clips to try and put someone down while trying to build Ron Paul support. The thing they do not realize is it makes him look as though he is a hate mongler and this does no good for anyone . Opinion of who won the debate tonight I would say goes to Obama. The questions were idiotic and nothing to do with being the next commander in chief. ABC should be ashamed of their performance tonight that it was that obvious what they were doing. So welecome Barack Obama the winner of the debate. Newt Gingrich delivered the best answers of what he could participate in after talking contraceptives for 15 to 20 minutes.

  • orrery January 8, 2012 - 1:14 AM

    Ron Paul is the only one that has put together a PDF file that shows his entire planned Budget. Gingrich is just there to appeal to a particular voter demographic in order to insure Delegates that he will eventually cede to Romney in the establishment’s battle against Paul.

    Newt has no appeal to Independents & Democrats and the GOP can not defeat Obama if it obsesses with shrinking the size of its party. Ron Paul brings in new fresh blood. Gingrich is simply, new boss – same as the old boss.

    I don’t understand why Huntsman isn’t polling better here. He really sounds very knowledgeable and I’ve been impressed with how he handles himself.

    • TheSwash.com January 8, 2012 - 1:19 AM

      Out of who’s up there, Huntsman is my number 2. I have no numbers 3-6.

  • RonPaulLover January 8, 2012 - 1:42 AM

    Of course Ron Paul won. We Ron Paul supporters like to post videos and clips to sway opinion and build support because we only wish to wake up those lost in the mainstream, and drowning. The reason we push so hard is because we don’t understand why some people refuse to see the truth we and others give them. Until America truly wakes up, we will keep pushing and pushing until we get change and freedom. DEAL WITH IT.

  • AUS4RP January 8, 2012 - 3:35 AM


    I’m in the outback of Australia, and even I can see who really won. The only honest man on the stage. RON PAUL.

  • graciousgrammy January 8, 2012 - 4:44 AM

    I think Dr Paul is the only candidate capable and worthy of becoming the President. I have been following him for awhile now his views and believes has not wavered.

  • mld January 8, 2012 - 4:59 AM

    Geesh, whoever said Paul was “fresh blood” has to be kidding. He’s been campaigning for president since the ’80′s…that’s over two decades. The only difference in him is that in the ’80′s he could explain himself well enough to tell people his platform. Now, he talks as if he knows everyone is filling in the missing explanations for him. Paul’s interests have repeatedly been Ron Paul, the professional presidential campaigner. If he was for what is best for America, he wouldn’t run around instructing his minions to only vote for him, which only results in letting Obama win. The other unbelievable line was calling Paul a Conservative. Yeah, he TALKS about the Constitution a lot, but wants to legalize drugs (and anything that brings no harm to others, because that’s where he draws his line…never mind that drugs harm the users and can cause the users to hurt others) and diminish our Defense to nothing, thinking that holding hands with countries dedicated to our destruction is a good plan.
    Ron Paul ONLY did well in Iowa, because the Occupy crowd was sent to vote for him. Obama wants to run against Romney or Paul, because he knows he can beat them.

    To think you are non-biased you may need to take a good hard look into the mirror. Perhaps you have fallen into the MSM trap like the others and can’t see the smartest man on the stage before you, the good Doctor Ronald Paul.

    Stop the under minding and hypocrisy you yourself are conducting. Perhaps the only real gauge for “who won the debate” question is the people. The people’s candidate is clear to all, which by reason you all seem to discount and/or discredit the man.

    Can you tell when the last time was we were blessed with an honest man of high integrity who really cares about the country and the people it belongs to? Answer that one! Yes, you may have to go back to JFK or Andrew Jackson even…but here you are (and not just you, all of the media fools that partake of this idiocy) with the one man who stands up to what a Real, through and through, honest, moral and in-check integrity Republican candidate who will not be bought and paid for by anyone…and yet you give him a “Grade B”? Well perhaps it’s time to graduate from the 3rd grade Jethro Bodine and realize that this is not only your future, but all of ours.

    I can assure that you I’ve taken the same oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America as did those in Washington, D.C. like Doctor Paul did as did the others. Have you lost your eyesight? Ron Paul is the only one that stage that actually holds those founding principles dear and with dignity as he fights the “machine” that has over taken the corrupt vacuum of the DC den of thieves.

    Shame on you, shame on ABC and shame anyone who cannot see the truth.

    I for one do not want to live under this tyranny and want our freedom and liberty back.

    MUST I REMIND YOU THAT THE NDAA APPLIES TO YOU AS WELL? That was the straw that broke the camels back and I immediately changed my mind about Ron Paull because he is the furthest from being waky that stage.

    Look it up, look it up and read it thoroughly because the NDAA may come knocking on your door some day in the not too distant future.

    Ron Paul, the only choice for sanity in this country. He’s the only choice for a true leader by example. WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT, I MEAN REALLY?

    as they say in the land of the quasi-free “GET WITH THE PROGRAM”

    Paul was his usual disjointed self. He won’t be going very far again for hopefully his last time.

  • DieselRunner January 8, 2012 - 8:09 AM

    Isolationism is not the way to go. Before you vote for that, throw away all of your friends and live alone. You’ll be suprised how much your allies bring into your life. At the current time, the United States does not manufacture nor produce enough to sustain Isolationism. Could it? Yes, I beleive given enough time to recover, it could. The country needs to be weened off of being dependant on other nations, not chopped off quickly.

  • GailMC January 8, 2012 - 9:48 AM

    Isolationism is not what Ron Paul recommends. He is a proponent of non-interventionism. Two different things. Trade and friendly relations with other nations is just fine, but invading other countries, especially on behalf of someone else, is not okay.
    Obama taught Constitutional law but has forgotten the lesson plan. NDAA is not Constitutional. Neither is the new bill before the House, to strip Americans of their citizenship. So, NDAA won’t apply to U.S. citizens? This new bill will handily take care of that! Wake up!!
    So, John Adams wrote the Constitution? Romney rewrites history! Wow! Put him in a debate with Obama-dear God!

  • jcruz January 8, 2012 - 9:52 AM

    @dieselrunner… You are way off base with your comment. Ron Paul is NOT an isolationist. He wants to trade will ALL other countries unlike any of the other candidates to include obama. Dr. Paul just doesnt want want to start any more wars around the world. We invaded Iraq claiming they had weapons of mass distruction and AL Queda, they did NOT!!! We went in to Afghanistan to chase down the 911 bombers, uh the majority of them came from Saudi Arabia…. We sold weapons and back both Osama Bin Laden and Sadam Hussein in the 1980′s when it suted our little pupose… As soon as we lost love with them what do we do, occupy and destroy them!!! The reason we don’t have manufacturing in our country is due to over taxing and regulationby the federal government and over inflated pricing of everything in this country!!! The printing of money and over spending has caused the value of our money to go down. Yes we could be almost completely independent of other countries but it would be a little painful in the begining. If we open up our energy supplies, bring home ALL of the troops NOW, cut federal spending significantly, close down unnecessary government agencies (IRS, Dept of Educ, FDA, etc). This would liquidate our national debt and boost the value of our currency. The over inflated prices of everything we buy would then go back down. With significantly less spending from the federal government there would be no need for income tax and significantly lower taxes for all. Less government regulation would allow manufacturing businesses to start and grow. More people in the US would have more jobs and money instead of the government and the rich 1% of this nation!!! Do some research man so you don’t embarrass yourself on here again trying to comment on things of which you have no clue…..

  • Nick January 8, 2012 - 12:31 PM

    RESTORE LIBERTY – RESTORE FREEDOM! Register to vote and select Ron Paul!!

  • willowthewisp January 8, 2012 - 12:34 PM

    These debates are produced to hypnotize the masses into buying the “annointed one”– the candidate the corporate elite has already nominated for president. PLEASE guys turn off the tv, cancel the newspaper subscription, learn who controls the commercial media and why, then study the issues from nonestablishment sources.
    Our freedoms are being stolen from us and there is only ONE candidate wanting to restore them. If you don’t understand this you have been successfully manipulated by the propoganda “journalists”. Ron Paul isn’t in this for himself, he’s in it for us. That is why he perseveres through the blackouts, smears and these ridiculous “debates.”
    Your brain cannot be stolen from you– use it and spread the message of freedom.
    Ron Paul 2012

  • Adam January 8, 2012 - 5:43 PM

    It cracks me up that people still seem to think that Dr. Paul is an isolationist. Dr. Paul wants to TALK and TRADE with other countries. President Obama and every other candidate in the debate last night, EXCEPT for Dr. Paul, would impose SANCTIONS on Iran. So ask yourself! Who’s the real isolationist?
