    Really?
    That was 4 minutes of good commentary and I am not a RP supporter.
    That is the real heart of the matter is it not?
    The questions the Judge asks are legit.

    I am one of "those" Ron Paul supporters since 2005; not that I agree with Mr. Paul on all of his positions, I have a lot of respect for this individual.

    Still, the longer I live and the more I see going on, the more I notice things staying the same no matter who is in office.

    Wait, this is a political conversation, not related to firearms...

    The Judge is very very pro firearms, with the belief of Zero infringement towards every American.

    Basically this is the 5 minute version of the Howard Zinn Novel "A People's History of United States: 1492 to Present."

    And anyone who has been paying attention to the actual details can see that really we have a one party system which basically is trying to make a difference so people seemingly have something to attach to at the voting time.

    Just look at how many large companies give equal money to both parties. They cover their bases.

    I had to go pull my finger nails out with pliers after about 40 seconds of "what if"
    Did he ever get to any point?

    You really need to be a little more entertaining if you want to get your message out.Or enlightening,engaging?

    His rant during that episode is why he argubly got fired from Fox news. Their 'spin' is that his show didn't have the ratings even though his show was in their top 4 for ratings.

    He did have a point but you have to remove the "what if" from everything he said & see it for 'what is'.

    Not everybody is entertained by the same things, but I dont think the point was to be entertaining.
    His sarcasm 'what if' sharpened the point IMHO.
    The discussion is probably best served by what he said rather than how he said it.

    What if we found out that all these guys are being manipulated by big-money people behind the scenes and there ain't anything we can do about it all? Hmmmm......what a concept!

    What if he wasn't fired, but moved from the Fox Business Network, to the regular Fox News Channel?

    Which is what happened.


    Sorry, I just thought y'all might like another "what if?"

    He lost his own show where he could choose the topic & apply his own narration. He is now brought on as a guest commentator to the shows that present topics desired by that network & the host's that will follow suit. He'd be treated the same way by CNN or MSNBC.

    I saw a Ron Paul clip last week, they asked him who he would pick for VP and he said Judge Napolitano was at the top of his list. :thumbup: Might've been just dropping names but I like that ticket.

    Paul/Napolitano 2012. Works for me.

    MJBSKWIM & MinnasotORnewbie I think you missed the point. He got fired because he bashed having separate parties and saying that it actually limits our power as voters not expands it, and exploiting/grandstanding the drama between those parties is how fox gets viewers... They wouldn't have many viewers if everyone shred the opinions that brave man was saying, if a Governor/Senator was saying those things I bet you 100 bucks he would die of mysterious circumstances.
