I like how the video preview has the embarrassing spelling error!
We thought that was a nice touch, haha.

Ron Paul for President!
well I like part of Ron Paul's ideas
some of the things he suggests are a bit cuckoo and require bypassing the congress to enact which I doubt would happen
but overall he's an honest guy and stands out from the dems and reps
some of the things he suggests are a bit cuckoo
This comment is cuckoo.
and require bypassing the congress to enact
Which he articulates clearly whenever asked (and sometimes when he's not). Nobody voting for Ron Paul should expect him to act unilaterally to fulfill his goals. He won't. Therefore, either fill Congress with more Ron Pauls or continue to suffer the consequences.

I'll gladly "suffer the consequences"!
"and require bypassing the congress to enact"
Nixon's closing of the gold window was by executive fiat, wasn't it? If true, then re-opening it could presumably be done by Ron Paul via executive fiat, as well.
And for a lot of what he wants, he doesn't need a majority (or super majority) in both houses, he just needs enough support to keep his vetoes from being overridden. I.e., greater than 1/3rd support in one house of Congress or the other. He'll easily have that.
If he successfully vetoes every unconstitutional spending bill, he will almost single-handedly cut spending down to constitutional limits. The actual shape of future spending will be determined by Congress (as it should be), but he could be the one to set the overall limit and eliminate all unconstitutional specific aspects.
Since the Supreme Court has given up on telling Congress that its bad laws are unconstitutional, the President has to step up and veto them, instead. I believe Ron Paul would.
