GOP Establishment Continues Assault On Paul

GOP Establishment Continues Assault On Paul

The mainstream media began by pretending he didn’t exist; when that didn’t work, they began to say he has an unpopular message or tried to brand him as a racist. Now, they simply lie about GOP Presidential candidate Ron Paul’s success in the 2012 primary season.

Paul recently mused about the fact that he draws crowds of thousands of supporters and his fellow candidates routinely draw only a couple hundred at best.

“Quite frankly I don’t think the other candidates get crowds like this, and we get them constantly” Paul said, after an event in Missouri.

Paul said he has a hard time understanding how the crowds he draws — especially in comparison to those of his fellow candidates — don’t equate to popular vote victories. The candidate stopped short of alleging voting fraud on the part of the GOP because he said he had no proof.

The candidate secured his first caucus victory over the weekend, winning 29 percent of the popular vote among the people of the U.S. Virgin Islands. The media, however, claimed that Mitt Romney actually won the contest because he stands to come away with more delegates.

Curiously, the Paul campaign has pointed out that the popular vote does not always reflect the number of delegates obtained in each State that has already held a caucus or primary. Only when Paul won the popular vote in the territory did the media change how it reported the results.

The Republican Party of the U.S. Virgin Islands reported the results as 112 to Paul (29 percent), 101 to Romney (26 percent), 23 to Santorum (6 percent) and 18 to Gingrich (5 percent).

    Ron Paul’s success in the primaries? What success? His ignorant and potentially deadly foreign policy has overhadowed a pretty darn good domestic policy. If he can’t see this, he is just as bad as Barry. If he was truly concerned about the future of Amercia, he would already be dealing with Romney or Santorum on being appointed Sec of the Treasury. That way he could resolve his #1 concern. The Federal Reserve. But what does he do? Stays in the race because he is an inflexible idealogue.

        Why are Ron Paul supporters always so nasty when they talk to people? They lose their credibility when they do that.

        Please DB, feel free to enlighten our wooful ignorance! Otherwise this is simply an Alinsky rant!

        You wrote, “Why are Ron Paul supporters always so nasty when they talk to people? They lose their credibility when they do that.”

        Mike Austin wrote, “What success? His ignorant and potentially deadly foreign policy has overhadowed a pretty darn good domestic policy.”

        That’s why.

        No one who is for an alternate candidate talks about Paul with even an ounce of respect. From the get go they have called him a nutbag. He is accused of being ignorant when he’s not. They say he has no chance, when he had a very good chance if he had been dealt a fair hand like the other candidates. They call his foreign policy dangerous when the only thing he’s suggesting is peace.

        If you don’t care for a candidate, that’s fine. But if you go onto a public forum and criticize a good, honorable, and patriotic man for no reason other than that you don’t agree with him, don’t expect pleasant responses.

        • http://PersonalLibertyDigest Carrie

          I don’t believe Ron Paul is a bad man by any means but I think he’s your typical politician. He’s been one for years. Every Ron Paul follower I have had contact is always nasty if you disagree with them.

          • Mad Dog

            Really Carrie, “he’s [RP] been a typical politician for years” ??

            What did you think about the minority report he wrote in 1982 as part of the Congressional Committee to evaluate how Nixon’s decision to take us off the Gold standard was working. The committee voted against Ron Paul. Or should I say Ron Paul voted against the Political Machine. But now – 30 years later – GUESS who was right. Everything that Ron Paul predicted has come true – as we watch the FIAT currencies of the world destroying the western economies. Oh, and who’s got all the Gold now? China, India, Russia, basically all your BRICs.

            Carrie, do you know which legislator has voted AGAINST every congressional pay increase? That’s right – Ron Paul. Does that sound like your typical politician? Because guess what – every pay increased passed – so someones voting for them.

            Rather than bore all those who are familiar with Ron Paul’s record, Carrie, may I encourage YOU to investigate the role he has played to STOP Fannie and Freddie, to LIMIT the Federal Reserve, and eliminate the UNCONSTITUTIONAL federal government departments, to balance the national budget, …

            Please do your homework – be an informed voter. Lord knows we have enough ignorance on the other side of the isle.

        Looking at his voting record and even at his speeches, you could tell he is not any form of typical politician. He states his beliefs, he votes his beliefs. He does not compromise. His votes ALWAYS support Constitutional limits on government. These are the words and acts of a statesman not any kind of, let alone typical, politician.

        • Mad Dog

          @Vicki – you are absolutely correct. I find it hard to believe how many self-proclaimed conservative have such poor memories of Ron Paul’s Presidential Campaign in 2008. He was the ONLY candidate from either party that made the failing US economy his primary platform. All through 2007 and 2008, he spoke and wrote time after time that this country was going to experience an economic collapse in the next year or two. He did this EVEN THOUGH every poll indicated that the voters didn’t want to hear his pessimistic truth. And of course those polls were right – and the naive Americans voted for the “Candidate of HOPE”.

          Ron Paul tells the truth – even when it costs him politically, professionally and personally. That – my dear Carrie – is NOT your typical politician.

          Oh by the way – everything RP predicted in 2006 & 7 came true in 2008. For Christ’s sake America, what more do you want? Another $15 Trillion in debt?

      • http://www.ifonlyphotos.com Alex Frazier

        @ Carrie – I’m a Ron Paul supporter. I wasn’t nasty to you. I’m not often nasty to anyone. If I get ugly, it’s a reaction to an action. My personal pet peeve isn’t those who don’t like Ron Paul. My peeve is those who make decisions for me and my family by casting an uneducated vote. Because of the mindless devotion to party or principle, our country is on the verge of economic and social collapse. Our money is being inflated to the point that my utilities and groceries have doubled in the last ten years. My sons who are all driving age now had to be registered with the Selective Service before they were even 18 years old in order to have an ID card or learner’s permit (which means they are gearing up for a draft soon). The government is allowed to spy on me. If I carry a gun in the wrong state, I go to jail. If I say something in the wrong place to the wrong person, the government can come take me away indefinitely without so much as charging me. To board an airplane, I have to consent to having strangers check out my junk. I’m told what I can eat. I’m told what light bulbs I may or may not purchase. And I get an email virtually every other day letting me know about some new piece of legislation someone is trying to push through at either the state or federal level to restrict my rights even further, or to invade my life even further.

        I don’t blame this on the politicians. I blame it on the citizens. If I can’t buy an old style light bulb, it’s because irresponsible voters put a politician in office who had no Constitutional principles. If one of my kids comes home in a box after fighting to bring democracy to Iran, I don’t blame the politicians. I blame the voters. It is they who vote in the Rick Santorums while passionately declaring that Ron Paul is crazy because he wants to get out of these economy-wrecking, money-devouring, son/father/husband-killing, nation-antagonizing, liberty-destroying wars.

        So there is a reason for a Ron Paul supporter to get hot over the issue. And truth be told, it’s not because it’s Ron Paul. It’s because they grasp the truth of our situation. They know what’s happening, what it’s going to take to fix it, and they know what the candidates really stand for. Ron Paul is the only candidate. The others will drive us deeper into the hole of tyranny and ruin. So to hear someone speak out against what is truly one of our last hopes in our modern age is frustrating. Not only because of the ignorance, but because they are directly affecting our lives as well with their irresponsible vote.

      • stillsane

        Ron Paul is was and always has been a political hack. This is not about the establishment and Ron Paul. It is about America hearing this idiot open his antiAmerican mouth and being turned off completely by him. BTW is he going to keep his campaign funds for his own personal use again like he did in 08?

        • Mad Dog

          Stillsane,
          “Political Hack?”. Nice, the last vestige of an ignorant person – name calling. Listen, you’re entitled to your opinion about the man personally, and you’re entitled to your opinion about his positions on various governmental, legislative and economic issues. But history has already proven him to be “right” for the last quarter century. And in the future, historians will examine his position and prognostications of today, and deem that he was still right. Sadly, for you and billions of others, it will be too late.

    • castaway

      You are way off on Ron Paul. Where do you get your crazy ideas? Are you a war monger, and do you really believe policing the world makes us popular? Do you like giving billions away as foreign aid to muslims, like the brother hood, and the palistinians? What exactly do you not understand about a good plan to stop ticking people in other countries off?

      Do you want to have the U.N. and Nato for the government of the U.S.? The current administration will get us there in a hurry if elected for a second term.

      Do you hate or dislike the United States Constitution, and the Bill of RIghts? Ron Paul is the only one who gives a damn about either. Like the rest of us, he also wants to have a strong millitary, and that is impossible with it spread all over God’s creation. It is my belief that Paul will do the best things possible for you and I. At least he will listen to what you have to say, and disguss it like an adult, and not a politician.

      I Have sent letters, emails, and did some phone calling to my reps, and they won’t even begin to listen, as the shut out anything the public has to say. They will, and do exactly as they please, without regard to any of us. If you want more of the same garbage you will surely get it with the other candidates. Maybe you prefer Obama the dictator.

      Good greif man help us out here, and vote Ron Paul. We are about to get into a real serious war, which could lead to world war. Do you want that?

      • http://PersonalLibertyDigest Carrie

        I have thought the last two Republican candidates have been picked and not won. I think Romney will be picked. Personally, I like Newt. Ron Paul is not as conservative as you might think. He knows the constitution but I have never heard of him jumping up and down in the House and saying anything or doing anything to defend our constitution. Look at how Obama has attacked Libya without the consent of Congress. Why isn’t Ron Paul saying anything. He plays the same game they all play. He’s a professional politician like the rest of them. I like Newt because I think he would beat the pants off of Obama in the debates.

      • http://none realist

        You cannot get too emotional about how the direction of the nomination process is moving. Dr Paul has a large contingent that he has in all states because there are too many liberty supporters and the informed to ignore. Unfortunate, like many of us on this board, there is a very heavy Super Bowl mentality toward this process. “I will wait till all the debates are finished and after a clear winner is established, I will choose the one who emerges a clear winner.” This is a very dangerous philosophy and unfortunately, will be the way the country decides on the GOP top runner. Obviously Romney was next in line to lose to Obama and those in the minority who supported Ron Paul will be seen as weak enough to get behind the one who will lose to Obama. I don’t know about you, I was among those who supported Ross Perot against Clinton (bad choice) but this time, Ron Paul is a realistic choice and I believe that the truth be known, there are far more awake voter this year than ever before. This election, I choose liberty. This year more than ever, our country depends on it and we will not sustain another term of a super crooked politician and be a free sovereign again. This is our very last chance to take a stand for liberty. Go ahead and stay the course with tyranny, this country may still be worth fighting for if you will just validate your loyalty and conviction toward the principles of a true republic. May God help us from ourselves.

        • http://PersonalLibertyDigest Carrie

          I totally agree with you. I voted for Perot too and sorry I did. I will stand behind the nominee and vote accordingly.

      • Ted Crawford

        ” Are you a war monger” NO! However I’m well aware from History and life experience that a proactive approch to things garners much better results than the reactive one that Paul supports! Even our Founders understood this. Artical one, Section eight, Clause eleven provides for the Congress to “grant Letters of Marque”! Given the means of National Defense of that time, that was clearly a proactive response!
        Static defenses failed in WWII, even in Iraq, everywhere they have been tried in modern times.To simply sit here and wait for them to come is an unresistable invitation for them to do just that!

      • Mad Dog

        @ Carrie: Your statements about Ron Paul being like all the other politicians … and not standing up for the Constitution when he’s on the House floor etc. – Demonstrates to all of us that you really DON’T know Ron Paul. Please, do your homework. You are always allowed to disagree – but you should first know what you’re talking about.

        I challenge you to find another legislator who voted AGAINST every bailout (even those proposed by Bush), against TARP, against artificial economic stimuli, against Cash-For-Clunkers, against extending unemployment benefits, against EVERY extension to the National Debt, against every self-defeating vote to increase Minimum Wage, against every vote to supply Fannie and Freddie with more Billions in bad mortgage guarantees, … Carrie I could go on all day and I haven’t even started the things he voted for like AUDITING THE FED.

        Please give this fiscally conservative statesman another look. You may also want to dig a little deeper into Newt (is electability all you’re concerned about ???)

        • http://PersonalLibertyDigest Carrie

          He also voted against Pork but loves to take it for his district. I know him better than you think I do, I just don’t think he will make a good President and I don’t think he can beat Obama.

      • Mad Dog

        @Ted Crawford: you’re contradicting yourself. I too am I big proponent for being PROACTIVE, for not doing the same thing that the last 5 predecessors have done. For 40 years we have been trying the same-old worn-out foreign policy in the Middle East and Asia (Vietnam, Korea, Cambodia, Laos), for 40+ years we’ve been spending hundreds of Billions of dollars and tens of thousands of lives – and FOR WHAT? Nothing has changed!! The world’s terrorist problems just keep getting worse. Unrest in the M.E. just keeps getting worse. The tyranny of the Islamic nation keeps getting worse – and NOT just in the M.E. throughout most of Africa and Indonesia as well.

        Ted – the United States is BROKE. What part about that don’t you understand. We don’t have the money to defend ALL the other nations in the world – against each other. For every dollar we GIVE away to our enemies – we must first borrow 45 cents FROM OUR ENEMIES. Now doesn’t that sound like insanity? For every $1 we give to support Israel, we give their SWORN ENEMIES $7 – Doesn’t that sound like Insanity?

        So “yes” Ted, I’m all for some PROACTIVE changes … some proactive sanity.

      • stillsane

        Ron Paul is a national disgrace and will go down in history as such. Porkulus Paul is his nickname becauce of all the pork he brings home. Has a nice scam going, sticks the pork in the bill, then votes no when he know it will pass. Then the old fraud says, “I never voted for an earmark”. What a pathetic loser he is.

      • Bob in Boston

        StillSane – you obviously have no idea how earmarks work. The funds earmarked do not go back into the general fund if they aren’t given back to the constituents of that district, so it’s not like if Dr. Paul doesn’t spend them they will pay down the debt or something – they will just go to someone ELSE. Now considering earmarks are effectively just giving people some of their OWN money back, why in the world would someone like Dr. Paul want to give his constituent’s money to other people? That would make no sense at all!
        You should really learn a bit about the political process before you start commenting on things you don’t understand.
        Ron Paul is the ONLY person in the Congress who gives his whole congressional salary back to the Treasury, does not participate in the “golden parachute” congressional pension plan, doesn’t participate in the congressional healthcare plan, and actually gives BACK a large percentage of his office’s administrative budget every year. (I believe he gave back $100k in 2010 and $140k in 2011)

        You will never find a person in government MORE responsible with OUR money than Dr. Paul!

      • Bob in Boston

        He actually won the Virgin Islands yesterday too, but the MSM is reporting Romney won because Romney got more delegates somehow. That’s funny since if you actually count delegates in some of the other contests (like Iowa for example) I think you’ll find that FAR more Ron Paul supporters became delegates than Romney supporters, but they’re still saying Santorum and Romney won Iowa. I guess we’ll see once we get to the convention, but I can tell you this – people who think the delegate counts follow the popular vote are going to be surprised, and Romney beating Paul on delegates in the US Virgin Islands is going to pale in comparison to what happens here in the states!

    • Butch

      Mike, your stupidity is GLARING. Ron Paul’s foreign policy of taking care of America FIRST and to stop imposing our will around the world where we are NOT wanted, is arguably his BEST quality. What we’ve been doing, is NOT working. You’re so stupid you think bankrupting this nation over false enemies contrived by the CIA and MIC to make the war profiteers happy, is beyond ignorant. If your failed policy of p[olicing the world until we’re in financial ruin was actually working, maybe we wouldn’t be in a TEN YEAR WAR AND COUNTING. Even WWII didn’t last TEN YEARS!

No one wants us in these countries as if dozens of murdered US soldiers didn’t tell you that before. As soon as we leave, they will go back to what they WANT to do, which is THEIR business.

And please let us not forget his racist Antisemitic newsletters which he lies about even though his signature is on some of them.

        @Stillinsane: I am amazed at those idiots that don’t know the difference between Libertarians and Liberals. Furthermore, you have zero understanding about the Progressives. Do not confuse them with a political party, their motives are to do what’s ever necessary to weaken all political movements in this country and force us into a single New World Order. That’s sort of the opposite of “Liberty”, don’t you think Stillinsane? Liberals on the other hand do not necessary seek a single NWO, they are driven to create a more Socialist Culture; and then would likely seek a Communist Culture after that. You should also be careful about prejudicial grouping of Democrats or Republicans. Do you know what those two parties ORIGINALLY stood for? Do you know what they’re platforms are today? Quite honestly, the differences between these two main parties and their platforms today are relatively small. And that’s why this country has been going steadily down hill – regardless of which party is in control.

        Get to know, Ron Paul. You’ll discover that he is a true LIBERTARIAN, a true CONSTITUTIONALISTS, and he votes against either party if they deviate from THIS objective. I suppose to you, that looks like a Progressive; because they vote against either party when they deviate from THEIR objective. But know this, Stillinsane, Ron Paul’s objectives are the antithesis of the Progressives.

    • Carl Manning

      Mike, I was once an ignorant Neocon nutjob like yourself until I learned about Zionism and the Israeli Mossad’s connection with the false-flag event of 911. We had many dual Israeli/American citizens in the Bush administration who were actively involved in planning this act of mass murder to create the fictional Global War on Terror, so that the US could do Israel’s bidding and the Military Industrial Complex would have profits galore. There is numerous research online about 911 being a false-flag event. The MSM and the governemnt have been suppressing this truth for all the world to see. You fail to understand that Ron Paul would not give any foreign aid to both Israel and the Arabs. This current government and Bush’s government as well have been giving the Arabs much more money than they ever gave the Israelis UNCONSTITUTIONALLY I might add. This money always comes with strings; it’s BRIBERY MONEY. Israel has all the right to self-determination of any nation. She has ample resources to protect herself.

      Now, if you really want to have your mind blown, go to pilotsfor911truth.org and tell me why the commercial airline planes alleged to have been involved in the attacks were still communicating with dispatch via RGS (Remote Ground Stations) well after their supposed time of crash??? In addition, tell me why the plane that hit the South Tower, UAL175, was communicating via RGS’s at Middleton and Harrisburg, PA when it was allegedly hitting the South Tower at NYC??? Prepare to have an epiphany and WELCOME TO REALITY!

      A potentially good foreign policy? So you think taking out the secular dictatorship of Saddam Hussein and replacing it with one who now forces Sharia Law, murders all Christians and Jews and embraces the friendship of Iran as good? Do you consider supporting the presidency of Karzai in Afghanistan as good? Our military spent years training people to protect him, losing their lives and limbs, and now he sides with Pakistan over the U.S.? And supporting so many other dictators with American blood and money has bitten us on the backside over and over again… that is insanity to call that good! Were you high when you made that comment?

      • stillsane

        Taking out Saddam Hussein and and the bad replacement was strilctly on the part of Comrade Obummer and his thug regime. Comrade Obummer had no authority to do what he did. If we had a real president, God forbid, not Ron Paul, this would not have happened.

    • traderphil

      In my humble opinion, Your Existing Foreign Policies ARE the reason so many other countries HATE the USA ! It seems that the USA is Forever involving your military in countries they have no business in, really. Look who installed and ARMED(including chemical weapons) Saddam Hussein? The USA! Who initiated/developed the Taliban during the Afghanistan/Russia war? The US did. The USA now has PERMANENT military bases in over 130 other countries! Why are you still in Germany, for example? That war ended in 1945!!! And you COMPLAIN because you finally have a Presidential candidate who wants to get out of the unbelievably costly wars you have going on at all times? It seems to the rest of us , in many other countries watching, that the USA has a different agenda going on than they present. Ron Paul IS your only hope of getting your country back on track, in my opinion that is.

      The paulbots here go nuts when you tell them the truth. Google Henry Wallace. He was another Libertarian/Progressive in gov’t during the 40′s. Was opposed to us being in WWII. He ended up leaving in gov’t in disgrace, just like Paul.

All candidates except Ron Paul are the first. I choose small constitutional government & liberty. Ron Paul can’t guarantee it for us, but he is the only chance we have. Our country is so far gone, we won’t get another peaceful chance for liberty.

    • TIME

      Sorry to tell you Ted, that happened a long time ago, saddly now with open intel by way of the { internet } some within the mass’s are just figuring out there is a real problem.
      They still are not quite clear when the flat tire started, but they can see that all the changed motors have failed, so it really was just a flat tire no matter who spins it.

      It still can be fixed, { thats the good news. }

      The bad news is; that no matter what, you will loose it all – as in if we fix the problems, you will loose it all —- but we can restart and rebuild A nation with real Freedoms.

      If we loose, we will loose it all so by 2014 the people of America will be in the same condition as the people of any 10th world nation.
      As then all nations will be the same, only those within the 13 bloodlines will have it all,
      That means 100% TOTAL power over every aspect of your life.

      {The plan they have used is just beautiful, if you can appreciate the beauty of it}.

      They have turned everyone against each other, the old adage of; ” divide and conquer” has done them quite well.
      Hell the people of this nation are still beating each other up over being either a R or a D.
      Many of you can’t even grasp that Dr. Ron Paul is no differant than any of you, yet many of you still beat him up like he was the evil one.

      People – there is no differance at all within the confines of the City State of DC as to what party your in when they share the same goals, the only ones fooled by all the Political theater played out daily – is the average American who sit on their fat ass’s With mindless mantras like ” It can’t happen here.”

      Thus – the question is will Americans get angry enough to stop the very monster they have created as well fed for all these years?
      Your choice people, be free with your God given rights, or be slaves to men of lesser abilitys.

      Peace and Love

      • stillsane

        You are right the Democrats have been taken over by Communists and now they are infiltrating the Republican party, with the exception of a few. But don’t let Ron Paul fool you, he is a dangerous individual. He is really a Progressive/Libertarian who wanted to lend legitimacy to himself by becoming a Republican. He has held office for 25 lackluster lears because he freely violates Article 1 Section 8 of the Constitution by bringing home earmarks. Don’t get me wrong, most of them do it, it’s just that he lies about it. He puts the pork in the bill, and then votes no. Then has the temerity to say “I never voted for an earmark.” This is one of the things that I hold him in contempt for.

    • Mad Dog

      Ted, Castaway, Mike & TIME – all good posts. All correct or at least potentially correct to varying degrees. I could add much – but won’t at this point. I would like to:
      1) Invite any naysayers. Any one with a different, more positive prognosis. I think we all want to be wrong – so please, someone prove that we are.
      2) You are right, Castaway, but do NOT be too quick to pick up that gun. It is what they want. They have more soldiers, more weapons, bigger weapons, and unlimited ammunition. We will not win this “revolution” with guns. Look to other ‘weapons’; they exist and they are largely non-violent.

      • TIME

        Mad Dog,

        I agree with you 100% we can do far more with a “PEN” than any sword or gun!

        There are many of us who are far smarter than the pigs we now have in power, we can win!
        Again thats the really good news. But as I said – we all will loose what we think is what we need, but again “material thing”s are just that, things.

        ” Freedom is the most importantant gift that was ever given Human kind.”

        Will we let this beautful gigt slip through our hands due to the mindless sheep that only want an idol to lead them, or can we over come these Sheep?

        Keeping in mind the natural formula that; 80% sit back and do nothing, while the 20% are then are split into 10% will do the wrong thing, — {{10% will do the right thing.}}

        I pray that God gives all the strength to see the path of doing the positive thing, thus ensuring that the human condition may remain FREE.

        Peace and Love

        I’m a big Ron Paul supporter and believe he’s about the only chance this country has at getting back on the rails. Anyhoo, while the last thing we need to be looking at is armed insurrection and the probability of success (it may look pretty grim when you look at the stacked decks), but always remember, there have been successes with underdogs over the ages, even our own American Revolution was played with a stacked deck against what was the biggest empire of the world at the time. Hell, even the Afghanis kicked the crap outta the Russians with outdated ordnance. Never underestimate the capability of a determined few. Another example would be to look at our current problem in Afghanistan, a bunch of unorganized terrorists are giving us a real hard time, for all intents, I’d have to say we’re at a stalemate with those people, if it was so cut and dry, we would’ve been done a long time ago. Anyone can bomb whole city blocks and what not, but when an enemy starts playing by their own rules, then things get a little more sketchy for us. But with regard to determination, I’m sure most of us are not at that level that we would stare death in the face and just go to town on whatever we could get our hands on. Of course with the downward spiral that we’re going, some people may wanna ask themselves just what their breaking point is. Some famous quotes among the freedom lovers come to mind – Better to die on your feet than live on your knees….First the ballot box, then the jury box, then the ammo box. Of course we’re all probably targets now, especially the Ron Paul supporters and Libertarians, with the gov’t snoopers having their all prying eyes all over the place.

    The elitists and GOP fear Ron Paul and the awakened voters strongly support Paul. Thank goodness for the internet. Paul voters know the polls and media are rigged. This explains why the #1 best seller for the Christmas was Guns. The voters want to take back the freedom of this once great nation.

        Argument to ridicule. directly from Sau Alinsky’s “rules for radicals.

        http://www.crossroad.to/Quotes/communism/alinsky.htm

        Even the most simple examination of the time and therefor money spent to ridicule or demonize Ron Paul by both the GOP and the MSM shows that they fear his message. They would not spend that much money on a candidate that no one cares about.

        • Mad Dog

          I agree, Vicki, so what do you think: Is Stillinsane actually a Progressive? A progressive accusing Ron Paul of be a progressive – that’s rich. Or is Stillinsane just drunk on their kool-aid … brain washed by the MSM? Or is he really that ignorant?

    GOP voter fraud against Ron Paul 2012 – Clear Evidence
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JwYDQJT9Ha0&feature=related

    • http://ncrdbl1.wordpress.com ncrdbl1

      Ron Paul and his supporters are lifetime members of the tin foil hat society. With out paranoia he has no followers. The man is the lest qualified man in the race. His claims of voter fraud is a prime example of his paranoia. He can’t get the support he wants and in his mind it cannot be because he is seen as a joke, No, it has to be some kind of conspiracy.

      • http://gravatar.com/chiox198 chiox198

I don’t care how bad the final nominee is, and believe me I despise RINO ROMNEY AND RINO SANTORUM, we have got to the Obummer out of office and clean out the Congress.

    • http://gravatar.com/tony1691 Antonio

      If Paul’s policies were in place in the “19th century” preferably before 1913 we would still be using sound money and free from the ruling elite (federal reserve). However, Paul was not here then and nobody back then went by those policies (the constitution); so now we are using fake money and imaginary money(credit) and we are being ruled by private bankers. Yes, indeed it is time to put Paul’s policies in place now in the 21st century and abolish the federal reserve bank.

      • Mad Dog

        @Antonio: Excellent Historic Observations. Critically bad decisions were made in the past – and there is nothing we can do to change the past. But critical decisions are still being made every day. 100 years from now, historians will look back and say “why in the hell didn’t they listen to that guy … Ron Paul?”

        No – not really – the way things are going, there won’t be any accurate history books 100 years from now.

    • ChristyK

      Ron Paul predicted the real estate collapse. He predicted the out of control debt. He predicted the blow back from islamic nations. He predicted inflation and its effects on our lives. How is Ron Paul crazy? He is practically the only sane person in DC.

      • stillsane

        Blowback? LMAO. You and ostrich Paul have no understanding of the goals of Islam. They want world domination under Sharia Law. This would happen whether or not we went anywhere. You can thank Jimmy Carter for a lot of this insanity in the Middle East when he screwed the Shah back in 1979 and let these mullahs take control. Better read up on Islam and understand what their agenda is. If you think they won’t nuke us, you’re as foolish as that imbecile Paul

    Ron Paul has everything I want in a president. Speak softly and carry a big stick! Our constitution was meant to keep our government from becoming dictatorship or an Oligarchy, but it looks like were on the way there. The USA is so arrogant, just like the big bully in the school yard. We need to pull in our horns and start treating countries with respect. Contrary to belief, we are not the boss of the world.

  • Barney

    I don’t believe the current republican candidates can win the presidency without the support of Ron Paul backers. They are a dedicated bunch and will stay home unless somehow Ron is on the ticket.

    • http://PersonalLibertyDigest Carrie

      If that happens they have no one to blame but themselves if we are stuck with Obama for four more years. They might as well go to the booth and vote for Obama because the winner of the Republican nominee is going to need their votes.

      • ChristyK

        Originally, I thought I would eventually support the Republican candidate, even if it wasn’t Ron Paul, because Obama is so bad for our nation. Since giving it serious though, I have decided that I won’t vote for anyone other than Ron Paul because there is so little actual difference between all of the other candidates. Their differences are mostly style, not substance.

        If Obama wins, he will destroy our country, but I also believe that Romney/Santorum/Gingrich will do the same. If Obama destroys our nation (or gives it to the NWO elites), then socialism, big government, and the left will be blamed. We then have the opportunity to rebuild (with extreme difficulty though). If Romney/Santorum/Gingrich win, then capitalism and our consitution will be blamed and our nation will not be salvageable.

        I do believe that we are in for difficult times, no matter who is elected. Ron Paul is the only one willing to make the difficult (and many times unpopular) decisions necessary to save our nation. Even these choices (like massive spending cuts) will be difficult and will probably cause a severe, but relatively short, period of economic hardship. If we do not make these difficult decisions now, the crash will be so bad, that America, as we know it, will cease to exist and probably never come back. If we lose the freedom of a consitutuional America, the world will be much worse off. Freedom, worldwide, may cease.

      • r.p.

        Au contraire Ms. Carrie.
        You will only have yourself to blame. I support Dr. Paul because he represents the true conservative platform. Not “Obamitt Lite” or Newt Gitmirich status quo selections presented to us by the illustrious MSM. The reason they promote those two is because they are a sure win for Obama. If Dr. Paul doesn’t get the nomination and does not run on a third party ticket, I will have to look elsewhere because I will not support fraud and cronyism regardless of the party affiliation. You are entitled to your opinion, but don’t tell me I have to support yours or MSM’s choice as I don’t believe in collectivism. To me, that isn’t a choice, it’s as rank as communism or socialism..

      • Bob in Boston

        Or the better way to think about it is that you GOP establishment idiots gave us John McLame in 2008 and THAT got us Obama, so this time you should all vote for Ron Paul since polls show he’s the only one who can beat Obama. We held our noses and voted for your candidate back in 2008, now it’s your turn.

  • BigBadJohn

    I have said this before but think it needs repeating. I am a right leaning independent, I have voted republican and I have voted democrat.

    The polls show that most elections are decided by independents, there are so many democrats that will never vote republican and so many republicans that will never vote democrat. It is the people in the middle, the swing voters, that decide elections.

    I do will not vote for Obama, however, I also will not vote for Mitt or Newt. If Ron Paul gets the nomination, he will capture a huge percentage of independent voters, such as myself, and probably some of the centrist democrats. He is the ONLY GOP candidate that can beat Obama!

    Nominate and vote for Mitt or Newt and you just Put Obama back in office.

    • Carl Manning

      Just as Juan McShamnesty had no chance, it will be exactly the same if the GOP runs any of the usual Big Government, Neocon nutjobs, 911 dupes, and pathological liar suspects, Mitt Robomneycare, NeWTOn GATTingrich, or Rick SAINTorum. The stats the MSM Propaganda refuse to put out about the American Electorate would truly surprise most Americans if they were reported regularly. The fact of the matter is that every 4 years over the past three Presidential elections 5% of Dems and 5% of GOP diehard supporters have opened their eyes and become Independents. Now, according to that stat, that puts the approximate number of diehard Dem supporters for 2012 at 15%, diehard GOP supporters at 15%, and Independents at 70%. This is an excellent opportunity for a Third Party or Independent Ron Paul write-in or whatnot candidacy to take it all. Far too many of us have seen beyond the Left-Right, Tweedle Dee-Tweedle Dum illusion that the NWO-CFR-MSM-GOP Establishment Talk Radio crowd foster to create an illusion of difference and choice and republican government. There are much more of US than THEM now. As a Ron Paul (READ: CONSTITUTION, TRUTH, LIBERTY, & FISCAL SANITY) supporter, I will be writing his name in on the ballot even if he doesn’t go Independent if he or his son are abandoned on the GOP ticket because the nation cannot survive 4 more years of the NWO puppet parties owned by the nexus of the Wall Street/FED/CFR/MSM/”K” Street/District of Criminals Crime Syndicate. They’re all a bunch of despicable whores who haven’t represented the American People in YEARS!!!

    EDS RESPONCE!

      You hit the nail on its head

    • stillsane

      Speaking of Adolph Hitler, have you read any of whack job Paul’s newsletters?

      • ChristyK

        Have you?

        The only quotes that I have found are so short, that they are probably taken out of context. I could easily see someone saying the same things factually and not in a racially bigoted manner. If the whole context of the newsletters was really so condemning, I would think that someone would have published them in full to show how “crazy” Ron Paul is. Since the only quotes I can find anywhere are only a couple of words long, I feel confindent that they are taken out of context and are not the crazy bigoted letters than many parrot them to be.

        Many people also say the news letters are homophobic. I haven’t seen a single quote to support this and it makes no sense. My only significant disagreement with Dr Paul, is he is too supportive of homosexual marriage. In the long run, this is not a huge issue for me because I would rather have the government out of promoting homosexual marriage even if it isn’t promoting heterosexual marriage. What goes on in the privacy of ones home is not my business as long as you don’t take it out of your home and force me to condone it.

      • Bob in Boston

        All the supposedly racist material was written by James B. Powell – everyone has known that for a long time. Look it up troll.
        Dr. Paul wasn’t even the editor of that newsletter, he was the publisher, so it’s completely reasonable that he didn’t read every word of it, especially since that all happened while he was back running his medical practice.

Or kiss the Constitution Good Bye, or until the Rebellion starts, Bloodshed starts, and only then will the Constitution be restored. A fighting Constitutionalist who has God on his side, can always defeat the Socialist and Communist. A true Constitutionalist has no fear of death and will fight a raging bloody battle to obtain freedom again. Socialist and Communist are actually cowards and will flee at any site of danger to them. They have no conviction to die for their cause. They embrace no righteous principles.

      The Republican establishment doing a real good job on Ron Paul? I heard this nutcase in the debates. I knew he was dangerous when he opened his mouth about Iran having nukes and started attacking the USA. The establishment doesn’t have to do anything to Dr. Dementia, he opens his mouth and does it to himself. BTW Mike Huckabee had a forum for all the candidates 2 weeks ago. It was not a debate, just an opportunity for the candidates to address the people about their individual ideas. Paul declined. He was asked to attend repeatedly and repeatedly declined. So who is not giving this ildiot news coverage? Go read another spy novel they have better conspiracy plots in them than you paulbots have.

In my neighborhood i only have one neighbor that lives directly across the street from me who believes and is aware of the upcoming crash and we have vowed to take care of one another, but all the rest have the “aint gonna happen here” attitude and refuse to unite. What are we supposed to do with heirloom seeds if we do not really have a place to grow things? Your advice/knowledge will be greatly appreciated. :)

        • Mad Dog

          Antonio – at the very least, a couple of tins of seeds could have bartering value. They will also be good for 5 or more years; who knows where you’ll be then. Otherwise, are you in an appt or a house? Do you own? Can you build a small greenhouse on the south side? Attach it to the house if necessary? Enlarge a south facing window and create an indoor greenhouse or solarium. Put a skylight on the south side of the roof? Come on, if folks can grow cannabis in their basements, why not tomatoes in your attic? Look into “Square Foot Gardening” or even Aquaponics.

          There has to be other like-minded in Fort Worth; expand your net and try to get involved with a resilient community.

IF YOU END UP NOT LIKING THE CANDIDATE, AND WRITING IN ANOTHER NAME, IT WILL BE LIKE ROSS POIROT AND THE VOTE WILL SPLIT THE REPULICAN VOTE AND THEN WE ARE BACK WITH OBAMA. IS THAT WHAT YOU REALLY WANT TO DO? IF THAT IS YOUR ANSWER TO CHANGING OUT THE PRESIDENT WE HAVE NOW, I CAN ASURE YOU IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN. WE HAVE TO GET BEHIND THE MAN THAT WINS THE REPUBLICAN PARTY AND GET HIM ELECTED, WEATHER HE’S OUR FIRST CHOICE OR NOT. THE REPUBLICANS HAVE A RECORD OF NOT GETTING OUT TO THE POLES. SO WHAT EVER HAPPEN, IS EACH AMERICANS FAULT. AND IF YOU CHOOSE TO SIT ON YOUR BUTTS AND NOT GET OUR VOTE IN TO GET OBAMA OUT, THEN WE WILL ALL BE IN BONDAGE WORSE THEN YOU CAN EVER IMAGINE AND MAY LOOSE OUR VERY LIVES WITH OBAMA CARE.

    The GOP assaults Ron Paul because they don’t want to go back to the Constitution’s limits. It’s just that simple.

      Actually they are progressive worlders too.
      Won’t audit the fed.
      Because gubment is their god,just like the rest of the gubment lovin’liberal progressive losers who come on this site to spout their hatred of decency and good taste.
      Just check spillstain’s posts for one second and you can tell that his problem is obvious.
      He cant see through the walls of his colon,so if something worthwhile came along he would have to have sunshine piped in to him,before he could even tell where he was.

      So some folks would like to see the slight of hand stop.
      But they would rather elect someone who looks pretty so when that person is having them,they can at least look back and see a pretty face.
      I seriously hope they have invested(much like spillstain has)in some petroleum based lubricants so it’ll go in easy.
      it’ll all make for a good laugh when its done,like imagining spillstain posting a thought rather than just farting on the keyboard.
      Cheers!

    Maybe what Pauls people need to do is to start a online petition that says “We the undersigned pledge that we will vote for Ron Paul if he is the Republican party nominee.” “We further pledge that if Paul is not the nominee then will will either not vote or vote for a third party candidate.” Once a few hundred thousand people signed the petition the Republican Party would quickly see what side of the bread was buttered.

      They already tell the world what you are espousing. Guess what the world doesn’t give a damn. Ron Paul a traitor you can believe in. LMAO

    We are in an era where I wonder if any voting results can be trusted?

  • tncdel

    Romney should appoint Ron Paul as his Secretary of the Treasury with power over the Federal Reserve and also given power to orchestrate the Romney administration’s policy on government spending.

    Ron Paul has his areas of expertise, but he doesn’t belong in the White House. He’s too soft on Islam and illegal aliens.

  • stillsane

    Last Sunday Mike Huckabee had a forum on Fox at night. All the presidential candidates were invited on to individually express their views. This was not a debate. The only one that refused was whack job Paul. He was repeatedly invited and repeatedly declined. He wasn’t ignored. He chose to not make himself available. So please take the conspiracy theories about this antiAmerican Progressive and put them where the sun don’t shine.

        Why are you so angry? I tell the truth and you curse me? He was invited to speak about his plans and goals and declined. So keep telling me about conspiracies about this hack politician.

  • Elzie Lavery

    Ron Paul is an honest man. He speaks his peace, whether you like it or not is up to you. I can’t believe how many people support the concept of continuous wars everywhere. Do they feel life is worth that little? If we had a military draft, which is how it should be, I wonder when it’s their/their family’s blood spilling for people who dislike us to end up with just another dictator who is by our choosing rather than the populace of the people we are presumably “defending”, that they would then be hawks????? I disagree with the drug policy he has, being that each state can make their own laws……but it certainly has merit. Maybe if just several states made legal the sale of dope, it could get those losers out of the other states, and overall as a nation we may well be better off. Maybe we need a period of prohibition as well, those choices being made by each state. George Washington in his final days had a whiskey still business…..but remember he was not God, but he had great faith in God, for sure. And yes, Jesus drank wine at the last supper…..look at the rsults of that dinner. I am a prohibition advocate, but feel it should be only temporary….if such an event could occur. I doubt it ever would again in this country, we have too many alcoholics who need their fix just as a heroin junky needs his. Alcohol is a poison, same as the other drugs. We as a nation to acknowledge this in our souls.

      Elzie, I’d like you to consider a few things. One of the things Ron Paul does very well is look at things the way they really are – “outside the box” you might say. He knew 30 years ago that our fiat-currency based economic system would eventually implode. He knew 20 years ago that the actions (and probably the intentions) of the Fed Reserve was to further destabilize our economy and deflate our currency. And he knew 10 years ago that Fannie and Freddie would bring our housing and mortgage industry to the brink of collapse.

      So you’re right to acknowledge him and his theories about the failing foreign and military policies over the last 40 years. They too have been failing. They’ve cost us Trillions of dollars and tens of thousands of lives. Elzie, I don’t think anyone wants war – no one wants all this killing – I think they all want the best way to obtain peace. The the old way is failing – it’s time to try something new. Ron Paul has a new approach that has actually worked for other foreign countries.

      So – Elzie – You might want to consider Ron Paul’s plans to allow States to determine which drugs should be legal. First consider that Prohibition was tried once before and it failed miserably and it would fail miserably again. Think about it, if we can’t prevent people from using and abusing illegal drugs like pot, coke, meth, etc. – what makes you think we can prevent people for using alcohol. It just isn’t going to happen – especially in a country that is trying desperately to hang on to its freedoms and personal liberties.

      Secondly, are you joking about Jesus drinking wine at the Last Supper? He drank wine everyday of his life, as did everyone else. You see, they didn’t have refrigerators, and preservatives, and tight sealing bottles and cans. Fruit juice would go bad very fast back then, even the water was unsafe to drink most of the time. A very low-alcohol-level wine was they only way they had for preserving beverages. But you see – that’s the difference between “use” and “abuse”.

      But, Elzie, are you going to stop with alcohol and narcotics? How about prescription drugs? Did you know that more people are addicted to legal Rx drugs than illegal street drugs. More people die from overdosing with legal Rx drugs than with illegal drugs.

      Here’s the deal – just like our failing wars in the Middle East – our war on drugs is also failing. We spend Billions of dollars while the Mexican drug lords, street mobs, gangs and pushers get rich. It’s time to try something new. It’s time to control the quality of street drugs, control distribution, control pricing, control taxes – i.e. make the system as safe and as profitble as possibe; allowing those that are going to use anyway to do so safely. And if a State chooses to be DRY so be it; now there will be a safe place for you and I and Ron Paul to live. Right now, there is no safe place. Most violent crimes are drug and alcohol related. Elzie, there is only one way for you and I to escape those crimes AND preserve American Freedoms at the same time.

      Think about it. Ron Paul hasn’t been wrong about very many things (I’m not aware of one). If you have any doubts, I would give Ron Paul the benefit of that doubt.

      • Elzie Lavery

        I could have expounded or extrapolated to a substantial degree as you have to me but I chose not to, for the sake of brevity. Ultra-long blogs are not beneficial, I feel, because the nature of the readers in that of a soundbite.Congrats for being such a strong Paul supporter as am I. I am thinking about hosting a radio show once a week soon, prior to the election here in SW Pa., promoting ron paul in a heavily democratic area. I will be offending many people, because this whole place is loaded with virtually nothing but government programs and retirees. These people have no concept of the whole system breaking down, they just keep their lazy hands out for the mailman every month. reality will have them in souplines…..probably always at the back of the line, as they are sheep, and the agressive young will simply push them back till they fall over and are trampled. These are the people who feel they are priviliged because they are the entitled. Should be an interesting thing while I am on talk radio. Have you noticed a Bush is the gov. of florida, where most of the prescription drugs come from? I find that more than a coincidence, you know????? Best of luck in all you do. Elzie

        • Mad Dog

          Good luck with that radio spot. Whatever we hope to accomplish must begin with re-education. I’m not optimistic about our chances of educating enough people soon enough to reverse the overwhelming trends of calamity – but I commend you for trying.

  • Earl, QUEENS, NY

    You write about the GOP establishment attacking Ron Paul?? LOL!! I suspect the opposite may be true, and the GOP may be strongly in favor of the 2 worst candidates this year. E.g., in states like Virginia, only Romney and MoRon Paul were allowed on the GOP primary ballot. The former is a RINO, and the latter is a McGovern-like nincompoop and crackpot. The sad part is that the GOP’s real assaults seem to be on the true conservatives who we really need to turn this country around back in the right direction. Also laughable is Mad Dog’s comment about hundreds of $billions spent for over 40 years. Well, thanks to Obama, the democraps and 3 RINOs in the Senate, we now have a failed $800+ billion stimulus/porkulus bill in budget baselines for years to come. And what do we have to show for it?? A never ending recession, the longest period of unemployment over 8% since the Great Depression, and trillions added to national debt which our kids and grandchildren will be stuck with. Mad Dog is right that “….the United States is BROKE”. However, the Constitution does call for military and defense spending. It DOES NOT call for all the waste that’s in the phony porkulus bill. You people are free to praise Ron Paul as much as you like, but I don’t believe any pro-Paul propaganda. I just can’t decide who’s worse between the old fool Ron ‘Wrong’ Paul and the RINO Mitt Obam-ney.

  • Windy

    I feel sorry for Ron Paul. He works hard, tells the truth always, has a great platform. He is being sabotaged by the GOP bigwigs in a systematic way. I feel even more sorry for our country and the fascist trend of the last 13 years. Of all the candidates RP is the only one who would get the country back to where it resembled the republic that the founders had envisioned a couple hundred years ago. The other candidates, including Obama, will allow the new world order B.S. agenda to continue unabated.

    • Mad Dog

      I agree Windy. Between the two major parties, the media, and the Fed Res, Ron Paul’s name will NEVER be on the ballot in November. Nor will the puppet masters behind the NWO ever allow ANY Libertarian on the Presidential ballot – including Rand Paul. And I would wager that Obama is EVEN deeper in bed with the NWO than Santorum; Romney I’m not sure about; but the evil NWO-prize would have to go to the Bushes.
