A couple of oddities (like using a picture of the Arab Spring to denote 'Islamic fundamentalists overthrowing moderate countries') but it's definitely pretty impressive no matter what your thoughts on the guy.

Sure, it's impressive, but I don't think he's consistently right, so it's hard not to chalk this up to some good luck on his behalf. But there are people who do seem to be keen observers who can read the writing on the wall. Perhaps he's one of them. At the same time, spouting rhetorical predictions doesn't necessarily make one a good political candidate, regardless of whether they come to pass.
Careful man, there's a beverage here!

Yeah I posted the same video not so long ago.

Ron Paul sure knows how the world works and he's not affraid to show it, unlike so many other politicians. Maybe he would not make the best president, but he's very intelligent, consistent, and I really think he honestly care about common weal.

But the medias hate him, so he'll always be disadvantaged on this point. But I trust our generation (speaking generally, I know where not all into the same generation), the "internet" generation, is going to change the way these things are done. News reporting is gonna change, a lot.

I think that a lot of people take unreasonable stances on him. You get the 'Paulites' who worship his every word and then those who will dismissively call him crazy without a second thought.

He's certainly not perfect, but as a spectator from across the Atlantic I think that he's an interesting character in America right now given the recent rise in relevance of many of the issues to which he has dedicated his life talking about.

It's not good luck, it's persistence.  I don't worship him but it seems like he actually says what he thinks instead of what a speechwriter put in front of him.  Wish more politicians were like that.
