    Interesting clip of Dr. Paul discussing the Government's claim that Wikileaks has put people's lives in danger. I agree with Dr. Paul. So far i've seen nothing that proves anyone's life has been put in danger over these leaks...Other than Assange's.

    I'm not a big fan of Assange. I've been against both wars, but this "wikileak" business doesn't sit right with me.

    Paul said that this is an attempt to clamp down on the internet.

    The government needs a monopoly over (dys)information as well as it's existing monopoly on the use of force to control citizens the way China does. Look at where we are going!

    Oh there is no doubt the Government will use this Wikileaks scandal as an excuse to seize more control of the Internet. This is already beginning to happen.

    Governments are always more dangerous than people revealing the truth

    I always enjoy listening to Ron Paul. He really does tell it like it is.

    Of course we are more dangerous.

    We can turn most countries into a wasteland with a single phone call from the Pres.

    We keep secrets for very very good reasons. And just b/c no one has gotten killed, yet, doesn't mean someone won't.

    Imagine wanting to get rid of the Taliban. All you have to do is rat them out to the Army. Now they won't, b/c they don't want to get revenge killed WHEN thier name gets out.

    Paul is not the end all be all of conservatives.

    Yes, indeed,

    Americans can not even defend their own freedom.

    1- there are over 2,400,000 inmates in US prisons;

    2- recently the federal government incinerated - alive - 90 individuals - 22 children in Waco, TX

    3- the feds mess around with our junk at all airports,

    4- etc, etc, etc

    Good points.

    Those are the reasons I was mad at Assange.
