Ron Paul Still Going Strong

March 22, 2012 by  

Ron Paul Still Going Strong
SCREENSHOT
Ron Paul appeared on Jay Leno’s “Tonight Show” on Tuesday.

Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul is continuing to battle the establishment and moving along through the primary season despite efforts to quiet his message of liberty.

A recent Business Insider report says Paul’s strategy of sweeping up delegates is paying off. The candidate appears to have taken a majority of delegates in Missouri, despite having lost the State’s nonbinding primary to Rick Santorum.

“We did do real well in Missouri,” Paul campaign adviser Jesse Benton said. “Some county conventions are still going on, but we’ve got good turnout. Anecdotal evidence shows we won multiple caucuses, and it looks like we’re going to pick up the majority of delegates.”

Paul has reportedly taken third place in the Illinois primary. During his appearance on “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” on Tuesday, Paul said he is counting on a brokered convention to gain some extra delegates from Mitt Romney.

“The second go-round, they’re not committed to him,” Paul said. “Then they can vote their conscience. Then I believe we’ll get a lot of those votes.”

During his appearance on Leno’s show, Paul explained his views on abortion, discussed allegations that he and Romney had formed an alliance, and blasted the other three GOP Presidential candidates for using Secret Service protection, calling it a form of welfare.

“You know, you’re having the taxpayers pay to take care of somebody and I’m an ordinary citizen,” Paul said. “I would think I should pay for my own protection and it costs, I think, more than $50,000 a day to protect those individuals. It’s a lot of money.”

Paul was also in the news earlier in the day Tuesday when he blasted Representative Paul Ryan and House Republicans for a budget proposal released this week in a campaign statement.

From the statement:

What is really disappointing is that the GOP budget assumes that the federal government should continue to do everything, or at least almost everything, it is currently doing. We will never have a balanced federal budget, low taxes, economic prosperity, and individual liberty unless Congress stops trying to run the world, run the economy, and run our lives.

If Republicans really want to win in November, they will have to draw a clear distinction between themselves and Obama’s disastrous agenda. And producing a budget that does not seriously address our nation’s debt crisis will not distinguish them at all in the eyes of the American people.

While the GOP proposal is similar to budget proposals released by other Republican Presidential candidates, Paul previously released a plan that promises $1 trillion in cuts in Federal spending in his first year if elected.

    I hope and pray for an upset. Nothing would please me more than to see Paul take the nomination right out from under all the others, and to see the stunned look on the MSM’s face when he won it.

    Go Ron!

    • Larry B

      There will be no upset. Newt and Paul both need to get out of the race. Neither of them has a chance at the nomination. I supported Newt, but he isn’t going to win, and Paul won’t either. The main objective is to get rid of Obama before he takes the country down.

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

        I disagree with you. I don’t think they should get out at all. They should keep fighting and keep taking votes from Rick the War-Machine Santorum and Moderate Mitt Rominator. If Paul and Newt get out, then Romney will win by a landslide, and I’d prefer that Mitt not win at all. I don’t want Mitt or Santorum anywhere near that office. They both scare the crap out of me; one for being practically a democrat, and the other for being an outright warmongering RINO.

        An upset is entirely possible in consideration of the delegate race going on behind the scenes that none of us hear about on the news. Unknown by many is the fact that Ron Paul is picking up a vast number of delegates. He has more of a fighting chance than most people realize. And Paul has also won a number of primaries/caucuses that the MSM has reported as being wins for Romney, such as the Virgin Islands and Maine.

        I don’t hate Newt as a contender, or as a possible president. While I wouldn’t choose him as my candidate, I won’t lose sleep over voting for the man if he’s my only option besides Obama.

      • kkflash

        Larry B, you’ve obviously lost sight of both the problem and the solution. The main objective is NOT to get rid of Obama, but to shrink the size of government and its growing list of unconstitutional activities. Getting rid of Obama is a means to an end, but that alone will not move us any closer to regaining our personal liberties and rights. We must replace Obama with a person who understands the problem, and not one candidate in this presidential race, save Ron Paul, qualifies on that criteria. People who believe in restoring this nation to its constitutional principles must stop believing the MSM BS that Ron Paul is unelectable. If you change your goal from reducing government to defeating Obama, you’re playing right into the hands of those trying to maintain the status quo. THEY will simply replace Obama with another big government shill with a different name, different party, and the same old plan – to take control of everything they can get their hands on in the name of “fairness” and “equality”. Stop being part of the problem, and become part of the solution. If Ron Paul doesn’t get the Republican nomination (that’s likely), we can still get him on the presidential ballot at

        Not exactly a stellar performance.

      • chuck

        Larry, what makes you so smart? It sounds like you only want to vote for a “winner” instead of your conscience. How can you know who the winner is before he’s elected? Guys like you should stay away from the pols, stop listening to the MSM. You know RP is the only candidate TELLING THE TRUTH; how could you vote for a liar just because you think “your” guy is going to lose? Is that how you treat your favorite ball club? A vote for anyone but Paul is a vote to put the same scum back in office. These thieves are lower than whale s..t, and must be stopped before the whole country is eating out of the gutters
        (or not at all). Newt is just that, a newt, cut from the same cloth as all the other freeloaders (bottom feeders).

      • Arby Justice Wilder

        So you are for Obama mini me Romney? Get with the program oust all the establishment snakes. If we don’t get Ron Paul this country is DONE, DONE and DONE!

      • Connie Pafford

        Larry, Follow the money. Romney’s #1 campaign contributor is Goldman-Sachs. One of Obama’s top campaign contributors is?……Goldman-Sachs. Both support socialized healthcare. Both support the NDAA (unconstitutionally using the military to arrest and imprison American citizens indefinitely with no due process). Romney admitted he supported it in a debate! Both Obama’s and Romney’s economoic advisers are “Keynesian” economists. They will both pursue central economic planning until they collapse the dollar. In the Declaration of Independence, it says it is our DUTY to right the wrongs if our government is being despotic. Obama and Romney have little differences. Santorum, Gingrich, Romney, AND Obama all support continuing unconstitutional wars. We are at the doorstep of a massive economic catastrophe and NONE of the other candidates support “We the People” in this. To simply “rally around the leader” just to “beat Obama” is foolish when the one you are rallying behind is no different.

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

        Vigilant, those are the MSM reported numbers, provided by the same people that said Romney won Maine and the Virgin Islands. He’s landed delegates the news isn’t reporting. So many, in fact, that as per a previous article on this site, the activism is pissing off Republican establishment folks. He’s also won majority delegates in a few states (can’t remember them off the top of my head, but I can provide them if need be).

        I wouldn’t believe everything you read. Paul has more than 50 delegates.

      • Randy Cantu

        Alex Frasier seems to know the score. Dr Paul’s people get their hands “dirty” and are devoted. Vigilant: you rely on MSM for your figures. You quote delegate counts. Those “delegates” haven’t even been elected yet. You need to research the subject and get educated on the political process. Many are going to be “shocked and awed” in August. Dr Paul is the only candidate, who if he wins in November, will not be in the “debt” of the “Banksters and Elites” trying to rule “the whole of the Earth”. LIBERTY! PEACE! Dr Ron Paul 2012!!

      • Mark in LA

        Romney can’t beat Obama and neither can Santorum or Gingrich. Only Paul has a unique message that will steal votes from Obama’s base. Without that, Obama wins. Joe sixpack won’t vote for Romney once all the job destroying deals made at Bain become common knowledge.

        Given the crappy way Paul was treated by the RNC and AIPAC shills, distorting his message, I doubt Paul voters will vote for the any Republican.

          Let’s see. Some of Obama’s largest contributors were Goldman Sach, JP Morgan, etc. Mitt Romney’s largest contributors are Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, etc. Obama likes the Fed. Mitt Romney likes the Fed. Obama gave us Obamacare. Romney gave us Romneycare. Obama broke his word on immediate withdrawal from Iraq. Obama broke his word on civil liberties and the rule of law. Romney broke his word on abortion, gun control, etc. Don’t see any real difference there. Besides, Michael, the same public opinion polling agencies show Ron Paul doing as well against Obama as Romney. If Romney gets the nomination and Ron Paul runs as an independent, Romney and Obama will split the same insincere and ignorant people who support them now and Ron Paul will win the election.

      • robert

        ron paul is winning big time,but you won,t see it on any of the bought and paid for media,but we the people by me,haven,t listened to the media radio,tv,newspapers,and any polls either,because they are all bought and paid for by the ovomit/lucifer/devil/hitler,and his band of treasonous traders,so let the media ignore him,and some bloggers bad mouth him,it doesn,t matter to we the people we are all voting for ron paul,and he is winning big time,but you won,t see that in the main media,so let the media black ron paul out,means nothing to we the people,god bless ron paul,sheriff joe,and all american veterans and all american citizens.semper fi

        Who the hell is crazy enough to vote in another Obama clone? And, that is exactly what Romney and Satorum are. Big government elitists. Sorry, but Ron Paul is the only solution to solving our problems. He needs to stay in the race ’til the end.

        What a defeatist ! America all the way huh ?… Ron Paul or bust !!!

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1136016259 Dean Da Costa

        Larry,

        Given the voting records and rhetoric of all the GOP candidates the only one who is actually different and who can actually beat Obama is Ron Paul. I am glad to see you have figured out what a loser Newt is. He voted in favor of practically every tax increase and every expansion of government and virtually every thing the socialists wanted when he was in congress. Newt is a bald faced liar with regards to his budget accomplishments. Just check his record on factcheck.org. If you are looking for a leader who will give us an actual change from the political status quo only Paul is actually different. Now concerning the delegate counts… the media has it really really wrong. First off the media apportions the delegates in the non winner takes all states incorrectly. NOT all delegates in those states are awarded so the numbers are skewed. Next, any delegates that are in fact bound to a candidate that has dropped out are FREE the media in many instances have awarded those delegates to either Mitt or Rick and that too is untrue. In all but one state so far the delegates are actually chosen AFTER the straw polls. That is the actual people that are delegates do not get chosen until the county conventions and state conventions. In these county conventions Ron Paul is often the ONLY candidate that has delegates and supporters even show up so he is the ONLY one getting delegates. In other counties Ron Paul supporters outnumber the others by as much as 30 to 1 so again Ron Paul gains more delegates. An upset is not at all unlikely. The real trick is to keep ALL the candidates in the race and to keep all of them SHORT of the 1144 needed delegates until after the first vote at the national convention.

      • w1945

        Would you like to know the difference between the Democrat and Republican Party? The Democrats say you are going to hell, the Republicans still say you are going just slower. Romney is nothing more that Obama Lite. I am a delegate from GA to the National Convention. Newt is toast. He will in no way get 35% at the Convention. That assures me that I will become a free agent. When I do I vote RP. People need to understand that his is going on all across the US. We are trying to save this country from it’s self. Romney can not beat Obama and even if he did we would be no better off. This country is at the end of it’s ropes. It is now or never. We are not going to get a second chance.

      • http://www.facebook.com/warcraftsailer Bradley Flinn

        So the main objective is to replace Obama with a person who will do almost the exact same thing? Wow that sounds like a great plan that has no chance of failing us.

    • revnowwhilewecan

      I’m with you. I’m not sure about the “brokered convention” tho. It’s good in theory but the problem I have is that “brokers” charge a fee and the establishment is all to willing to pay. :( They call them brokers because after you deal with them, that’s what you are. BROKE!

      • Peter Mac Isaac

        Regardles of what happens, the big money and the controllers of MSM do not want Ron Paul in power. Therefore it matters not who votes , only who counts the votes. Should he be able to overcome the corruption in the press and his own party the US might still have a chance. Other than that it appears you folks are going down the tubes. I hope all of us Canadians don’t get sucked down with you.

    • Vigilant

      My, my, how the message changes when it works in Ron Paul’s favor!

      Under a headline, “GOP Establishment Continues Assault On Paul,” Mr. Rolley on March 15th laments the fact that Paul took the popular (non binding) vote in the Virgin Islands caucus, but lost the delegates to Mitt Romney.

      Mr. Rolley exclaimed, “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.”

      Oh, that terrible media, that had the audacity to report the truth about the caucus results! Yes, Virginia, Romney won the caucus because the VI caucus rules make popular votes non binding.

      Now today Mr. Rolley says, “A recent Business Insider report says Paul’s strategy of sweeping up delegates is paying off. The candidate appears to have taken a majority of delegates in Missouri, despite having lost the State’s nonbinding primary to Rick Santorum.”

      What? No headline proclaiming “GOP Establishment Assaults Rick Santorum?” It’s EXACTLY the same situation encountered in the VI caucuses, but what was bad is now good. Cognitive dissonance, Mr. Rolley?

      The biography posted below your article is, to be honest, somewhat questionable in light of today’s contribution. Will you respond to my observations, or are you “out of the office” again?

      • Arby Justice Wilder

        It is because the GOP is cheating Ron Paul in favour of their establishment boy Obama clone Mitt.

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

        Agreed Arby. The sentiment isn’t different because of hypocrisy. It’s different because it’s nice to see something on the news that isn’t deliberately geared to destroy Ron Paul’s campaign.

        Vig, I promise you … if Ron Paul had gotten a fair shake from the get go instead of the media black-outs, the constant false attacks against his platform, the deliberate misrepresentation, the media “non-electability” hype, all followed by mindless drones on the internet who repeat every negative thing they hear without checking it out, Ron Paul would likely be in the lead right now.

        Instead, we have a public who believes 1) he can’t win (because that’s the message the media put out there), 2) he is pro-choice (which he is not), 3) he’s an isolationist (when he’s actually a non-interventionist, which is dramatically different), 4) he doesn’t support Israel (when in fact he does, and in a more positive way than many other candidates), 5) he thinks 9/11 is America’s fault (though he blamed our government’s policies, not America or the American people, and his opinion is supported by the 9/11 Commission report), 6) he wants Iran to have a bomb (which he does not), 7) he wants to weaken our national defense (when what he wants to do is bring the soldiers home, which will strengthen our national defense), etc. The list of misinformation about him is as long as my arm, and it’s all propegated by the MSM and mindless robots on the internet who have no idea what they’re talking about.

        In the meantime, Romney and Santorum are everything the people despise. Yet they vote for them. Gingrich, who is the next best option to Paul (relative to our available choices), is also starting to be snubbed by the media. Nevertheless, Gingrich isn’t all that either. Paul wants to restore our Constitutional freedom, whereas the others either approve of, or would increase, the further loss of our individual liberty in the name of national security.

        It’s all crap. If the manipulation hadn’t been going on … if they had just given Paul a fair amount of coverage and reported the information on him accurately, he would be in the lead right now. I have no doubt about it. His message and platform, if you actually know what it is and understand it, is addictive and inspiring. It’s a popular message. It’s a message of freedom and prosperity. No one else meets that criteria.

      • Vigilant

        Alex Frazier, please understand I’m not here to take issue with you about Ron Paul, and you are to a large extent preaching to the choir. I like Paul and I do agree that his positions have been regularly misrepresented in the media..

        Please re-read my posting. My beef is with the shoddy journalistic practice of putting forward two diametrically opposed points of view solely to suit a political purpose.

        The MSM is guilty of this all the time. I cannot tolerate, however, when PLD, and Sam Rolley in particular, does it. This cognitive dissonance (or hypocrisy, whichever it is) of condemning the GOP on the one hand, then failing to do so when the results are favorable to Ron Paul in an identical situation (i.e., the Virgin Islands caucus vs. the Missouri caucus) is harmful to the Libertarian cause.

        I expect more integrity on the part of PLD’s contributors.

        No problem Vigilant. I was ranting more than anything else, not trying to insult you. I get aggravated by the constant anti-Paul rhetoric. Not because he’s my pick, or because I can’t get people to agree with me. I get aggravated because the people of this country are going to blindly elect a president who is going to be making decisions for me and for my family. I can’t decide what the people think. I can’t decide how the people are educated. I can’t decide anything about the people whatsoever. But they can decide for me which person is going to rule over my family, take our earnings, suppress our freedom, etc.

        So I do get annoyed of late when I hear constant negativity about Paul. Nevertheless, no ugliness was intended to you. You’ve always been a good poster on here. I don’t agree with you on every point, but you’ve never really been rude to me. My ugliness is reserved for jackoffs who pick at my grammar because they disagree with my point of view and have no argument of their own other than to insult me over innocuous crap.

        • http://robertfallin.wordpress.com robertfallin

          Vigilant’s comments about Ron Paul supporters complaining when the press reported that Romney won the Virgin Island’s misses the point (I suspect, intentionally). It is the press that continues to state that Ron Paul “hasn’t won ANY primaries or caucuses,” and that is patently untrue IF the press used the same standards EVERY time. Which is it, the “Beauty Contest” or the actual delegates? By the delegate standard, Ron Paul has one at least SIX, even including the proven fraud. By the other, Ron Paul has one at least one, and fraud is HIGHLY suspect in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Nevada, Washington, South Carolina, Alabama and Florida, at the very least. The fraud in these “Beauty Contests” might not have been enough to cheat Ron Paul out of first place (Iowa being the exception). However, it is enough to make Ron Paul appear a “fringe” candidate and I believe that was the intent..

We have been void of freedom for so long that we would not recognize it if it jumped up and slapped us square in the face. Ron Paul wants to restore our liberty and freedom. People need to stop saying he can’t and say he can. I honestly can not figure out what has become of this country. It’s like they want to pick a looser. Well Romney aka Obama Lite is a looser.

        They bind delegates so that they cannot participate in the republican convention. Nice try. Who do you work for kkflash? Hmm?

      • kkflash

        Todd, you are correct to say that making an accusation is not necessarily proof of ignorance regarding Americans Elect. It may, in fact, rather be nothing more than a willful lie to accuse the organization of promoting a globalist agenda. Since CP offered no proof of the unfounded accusation, I gave him/her the benefit of the doubt, and suggested ignorance of the facts as an explanation, rather than outright dishonesty. CP has only to provide some factual support for the unfounded accusation in order to prove me wrong. In the absence of that, I stand by my statement that CP knows little or nothing of Americans Elect, and is therefore ignorant in that regard.

        As to those suggesting Ron Paul’s Americans Elect candidacy should not be supported because it could rob Ron Paul of Republican delegates, I call that horse pucky. If you are a Republican delegate for Ron Paul, then I agree you should not disqualify yourself from representing Paul at the Republican conventions by registering as a member of Americans Elect. For the rest of you naysayers, don’t say you support Ron Paul if you’re not willing to do the least little thing in order to have him on the Presidential ballot.

    Romney is a liberal. After he gets the nomination, he’s inevitable, he will shake his Etch A Sketch and “away he goes.”

  • revnowwhilewecan

    The big lie in the media is that Paul supporters are “loud and unruley”. Patently misleading and blatently false. They show false polls to make him look weak but everywhere he goes people are heard because they are many, not because they are rude. He’s viral online not because of his “young pothead following” but because it’s (so far) unsensored and that’s where the real, trustworthy news is. Do you understand me you deaf, dumb and blind sheeple?? (joking…..kinda):)

    What the unenlightened fail to understand is that Ron Paul is not just a candidate, he’s the head of an awakening that this country is gravitating towards. A movement on the grandest of scales. Even if he doesn’t win, the movement will continue, more will wake up and we will evolve.

    • Vigilant

      I truly hope you’re right.

      • revnowwhilewecan

        I believe the real fight is in the trenches, on the MSM blogs. There’s so many misinformed that I feel like a few hours a week on getting the facts out actually does some good. I’ve only started in December but I feel like I was in the minority with my views on Paul and his policies and now, still a minority but quickly picking up the pace. I’m not one to keep banging my head against the wall if I feel like it’s doing no good, but more seem to be joining me in his positive critique rather than opposing views and just name calling. When you fight with the facts, I find I do well and others sometimes “get it” and hop on board. Still a lot of work but with the MSM spewing so much crap it seems as if more and more aren’t falling for it in the blogs and more people are getting their news from US rather than the lying medias. If you keep chirping the truth, the most biased and heavily influenced come around after a while. The beauty of instant news is that we continually expose the MSM while gaining significant credibility with our fellow bloggers. THAT MAKES US THE NEWS! People generally want to do good. It’s easy to talk with a bunch who shares your views. That’s why I like the trenches and I know a lot of you do as well. I’ll say it again. Let’s be the voice at the water coolers and breakrooms! GET IN THE TRENCHES!

    • Connie Pafford

      I agree. Whoever knew that 5 years ago, the movement would be stronger than ever? I even have some liberal friends that are waking up to the corruption and lies. Now that’s saying something.

    Newt has been speaking out strongly for the constitution; always quoting verbatim large portions of it and discussing it at length. He has also spoken about the Northwest Ordinance; especially Article the 3rd (look it up) that speaks of Religion, Morality and Knowledge (in that order) in our schools. He has Reagan values ( Michael Reagan also says so ), is strong in his convictions, has learned from past mistakes, (go to WIKIPEDIA for the truth) and is a History Professor (who has also advised our military generals).
    He gives generously to charities, has written books, produced films, and has learned how to smile more; adding touches of humor (giving time to present alternate scenarios-rather than acting rashly or prematurely).
    A strong USA is energy INDEPENDENT (not dependent on middle east/unstable areas driving up prices of oil), has a sound dollar, and a strong national defense with their military and solid presence in the space race. IE: Charles Lindbergh flew non-stop to paris, france for the $25,000 Orteig prize; something similiar could be used as incentives.
    Restore our freedoms under the constitution!!!

    • Mark in LA

      Yes Newt does have Reagan values. He is for an amnesty for illegal aliens. He is for flooding America with low wage guest workers. He is for more free-trade agreements to give companies protection when they move factories overseas. He is for more laws like the Patriot Act and NDAA to make sure the government can spy on us all day long. He is for endless deficits. He supports rich people never paying taxes and endless wars paid for with borrowed money.

    • Todd

      Nonsense! Newt has written about the need to remove the U.S. Constitution and replace it with a more modern version. He may quote the Constitution and he may even parrot some of Paul’s stances, but he isn’t trustworthy! He is a CFR Neocon who is willing to destroy the basic liberties of individuals to push his collectivist agenda.

    • RPismypresident

      If Newt is so Constitutional, why did he try to install internal passports on the American people back in 1998? This internal passport was to be disguised as a national driver’s license. Without the passport, Americans would not have been able to cross a state line, transact business or rent a home. We can thank Ron Paul and Bob Barr for putting a stop to it.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1062984119 Robert Fallin

      If Newt is so “pro-Constitution,” why did he propose locking up “activist federal judges,” the NDAA and the Patriot Act. Newt also claims to be pro-life, but neither he nor Santorum co-sponsored Ron Paul’s legislation to remove abortion from federal court jurisdiction.

    • w1945

    All of you Ron Paul backers hold the key to November. You must convince Paul to run as a third party candidate and make clear to the GOP that the Paul backers will NOT back off and vote for Mitt.

    You will then hold all the power in your hands. If the Paul backers will not give in then you may convince the GOP that the only way to unseat Obama will be by voting for the third party choice.

    • Vigilant

      ” If the Paul backers will not give in then you may convince the GOP that the only way to unseat Obama will be by voting for the third party choice.”

      Are you a Democrat plant? The precise way to defeat Obama is to actively AVOID a third party. It may be more than a coincidence that Ross Perot and Ron Paul have the same initials.

      • kkflash

        The question is “Do you want to defeat Obama, or do you want to actually change government in a meaningful way?” Replacing Obama with Mitt, Newt or Santorum will have all the effect of a fart in a hurricane when it comes to reducing the size and reach of government.

      • Todd

        Paul will be able to attract large swaths of the democrat vote. Obama was the peace candidate, but who started numerous wars and probably Syria and Iran before election day which will push even more to Paul. Romney would defeat himself and more and more people will see through the charade that is the two party system. Paul would have a real chance to win.

        Todd says, “Paul will be able to attract large swaths of the democrat vote.”

        I have no doubt of that. But I think that whatever he gained in that vote would be more than offset by the Republicans who are afraid of seeing Iran get nuclear weapons.

        Re: http://pewresearch.org/pubs/2221/iran-nuclear-weapons-syria-intervention-israel-afghanistan-troop-withdrawal?src=prc-newsletter

        “In dealing with Iran, more Americans say their greater concern is that the United States will wait too long to take action, rather than it will take action too quickly (54% to 34%).

        The survey also finds that a plurality of the public (46%) says that U.S. support for Israel is about right; 22% say the U.S. is too supportive of Israel and a comparable percentage (20%) say it is not supportive enough. Republicans are more likely than Democrats or independents to say that the U.S. is not supportive enough of Israel.”

        So only 22% of both Dems and Repubs agree with Dr. Paul. Right or wrong, it’s a voter position that would take a Herculean effort to overcome.

        I happen to agree with Dr. Paul’s position on this, i.e, that Israel has every right to defend its sovereign interests in the face of a possible Iranian attack. I do not agree with him insofar as the proposition that Iran has a right to obtain nukes.

          If the Ron Paul campaign can’t get it together by Pennsylvania, Santorum and Gingrich may drop out and Romney WILL have a “clear path to the nomination.” I don’t put my “eggs in one basket.” I home Americans Elect gets enough subscribers to draft Ron Paul and I hope both the Constitution and Libertarians draft Ron Paul, ensuring he is on the ballot in all 50 states. If this happened, “Obamney” would split the bankster/neocon vote and Paul would win the election.

      • kkflash

        Vigilant, in what way am I “taking on” “major PLD contributors”? Since I know you blog here regularly, you must know that I too post here on a regular basis, and am an avid supporter of Ron Paul’s candidacy, both as a Republican nominee, or barring that, as a third party candidate. (I have a Ron Paul bumper sticker on my car for God’s sake!)

        Your commentary toward my posts today seem terribly misplaced.

      • Vigilant

        kkflash,

        My apologies if I misunderstood you or you misunderstood me. The thrust of my comments on this particular thread has been along the lines that Dr. Paul has a slim chance of winning. To me, that is a view that means I’ve got both feet on the ground, a view that’s borne out by the “Vegas odds,” and a view shared by major contributors (not commenters) to this site.

    • Pete

      To all on here regarding Paul and others…
      A third party would throw it all back to where you all say you don’t want it to go.
      We don’t need marijuana or any of those o.k.’d…that just brings in more of what one see’s walking the streets now. More not working…..mind in the clouds, so to speak. I am not condemming the person but, what it will do to them. It leads to other worse things.

      We need to not think of ourselves as better then other countries, but actually be better in
      our Faith in God – owner of all and still in charge….remember people wanted Him out, now see what it is like when He steps aside….we need to repent and ask Him back into each of our hearts, lives / Morals are slapping the face of our creator -who said no to such as what is going on / Patriotism – hating the country that is yours – leave it and find some place you think better-and leave American’s at peace who want to do what is right. God will judge those who don’t when He returns. We will all face HIm…..He is as close as the air you breathe if don’t know Him yet and in the Hearts of true believers. That is where it all lies, our relationship with our God.
      Our constitution but, under God. Have a Good Day – all
      seeking Him first and all else will fall in place.

      • kkflash

        You appear to suffer from a lack of understanding of Ron Paul’s positions. Yes, he supports the decriminalization of marijuana and some other drugs, but only because the data strongly suggests that the war on drugs has done no good whatsoever in terms of reducing their use. Paul recognizes that the money we’re spending to combat marijuana’s distribution is wasted, as is the billions spent incarcerating people who violate the unwarranted laws against its cultivation, use and distribution. The war on drugs has only gotten people hurt or killed, and the money we spend on it would be better spent to educate folks, especially the young, on the risks and dangers of recreational drug use.

        Advocating for personal liberty is not a conditional position that allows us to choose how someone else exercises their libertarian rights. You either believe each person has the right to choose how to live their life, or you don’t. If you believe government has the right and/or duty to legislate morality, then Ron Paul is not your man. If you believe that government is involved in a whole host of things they have no business regulating, and want to do something about it, then Ron Paul is your man indeed.

    • w1945

      I was elected as a GA delegate to the National Convention in Tampa. People are all the time asking me how I pulled that off especially since I did not even belong to the Republican party in my county. I tell them divine intervention. The good lord showed me how to slide in unter their radar by speaking from my heart. Funny but I had a guy to come up to me the other day, kowing that I was a delegate and a RP supporter, he jumped me with this. You Ron Paul supporters are going to put Obama right back into office. I was polite to him but my answer was, no, you are going to put Obama back into office by not getting on board. If Romney gets beat which he will, it will be Romney’s fault not Ron Paul’s fault. Bottom line it has nothing to do with Ron Paul but has everything to do with status quo. The people who do support RP would never support Romney, even if RP was not in the picture. The Republican party is between a rock and a hard place and they know it beyond a shadow of a doubt and to make matters worse they have not a clue as to what they can do about it. So what will they do. My guess is they would rather see Obama back in than see RP elected. Oh I know that is just crazy. Think so? You might want to give that some serious thought. They know beyond a doubt that they could jump behind RP and clean Obama’s clock. I know beyond a doubt that RP can clean Obamas clock. So why do they not do it? Becasue down deep they are no more than Obama Lite.

  • Victoria Jean Christine Bingham

    ANYONE running save RON PAUL will continue the policies of the Obama administration. Want a clue? The powers that run the US government ALSO run the media… look no further than 9/11 for that evidence.. and the mainstream MEDIA has an obvious blackout on Ron Paul. Why? The powers that be, are terrified of a RON PAUL Presidency. His plans to diminish the debt, reduce government, eliminate the illegal FED, the IRS, the EPA and so on, will thwart the heinous plans in place to destroy further American civil liberties in the name of the fictitious War on Terror. Has it escaped anyone’s notice yet, that in the name of fighting for Democracy elsewhere, it has been effectively eliminated right here? Our 1st Amendment Rights, 4th Amendment Rights and the 10th Amendment have already been eviscerated. RON PAUL is the only candidate that speaks logically and honestly about the status quo and how to fix it. He is the ONLY candidate that the venerable Ludwig Von Mises Institute of Economics named, “The ONLY seriously principled statesman”. He is the ONLY candidate being supported by 85% of the armed forces and veterans, and NOT by banking interests. Should he continue to run. A resounding YES. Regardless of who the GOP selects. We need Ron Paul or the nation that we knew, will finish the business of evolving into a police state.

        Vigilant, the link I provided shows that during the first 9 months of 2011, more than 83.5% of political contributions to Republican candidates by members of the military went to Ron Paul. If you want to quibble about the difference between that and 85%, you’re just being unnecessarily argumentative and nit-picky.

      • Vigilant

        “Vigilant, the link I provided shows that during the first 9 months of 2011, more than 83.5% of political contributions to Republican candidates by members of the military went to Ron Paul.”

        That may very well be, but the original statement was, “He is the ONLY candidate being supported by 85% of the armed forces and veterans,” and that’s a far cry from being the same thing. It’s not nit picking, it’s identifying an egregious error.

        Here’s what I said on the subject on February 23rd (http://personalliberty.com/2012/02/23/ron-paul-says-conservative-hawks-are-fiscal-hypocrites/)

        “The Ron Paul website claims to have received $263,739 from the military through the fourth quarter of last year. This is less than 1% of his total take, and certainly not a statistic worth touting if you equate dollars with votes.”

        “A more telling statistic would be to divide the number of contributors by the total personnel strength of the Armed Forces. Making a broad (and VERY generous) assumption that each contributing member sent in just $1.00 to Ron Paul, that would be 263,739 members out of a total of 2,278,616 regular and reserve personnel, or just 11.6%. That is definitely NOT what I would call “overwhelming support.”

    • RPismypresident

      Dennis, that is a myth perpetuated by the MSM. Ron Paul is a non-interventionist, not an isolationist. He advocates “the non-interventionist foreign policy recommended by our Founding Fathers. He points out that foreign intervention is very costly and creates ‘blowback.’ He advocates leading by example with peaceful engagement: diplomacy, free trade and free travel.

    Ron Paul is on the right track; his campaign is not. I love the man, but his loyalty to friends and family may be his downfall (and ours as well). He let the “racist newsletter” non-issue break his momentum before Iowa. That was an issue in 2008 and the campaign not have let it fester. The real source of the comments has a cushy job with FORBES magazine, but I saw no calls for this person to be fired from FORBES. Paul’s friend, Lew Rockwell, was editor of the newsletter. He should have stepped forward and taken some responsibility and the campaign should have arranged this. Further, myths about Ron Paul’s foreign policy should have been addressed BEFORE Iowa using testimonials from military and counterintelligence experts, not “feel good,” oh-so-clever ads such as the “Big Dogs” ad, that Santorum demolished with ONE sentence during one of the debates. Since Paul seems unwilling to fire his son-in-law, Jesse Benton or his media consultants, it appears it will be left to the grassroots and superPACs to take Romney down for his bankster contributors, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, et. al. You know, the guys who wrote “bad paper” during the subprime era, earning huge bonuses, crashed the market, got bailed out with taxpayer money, then gave themselves huge bonuses again.

  • Rafael

    Ron Paul is the signification of what I thought was the USA, not Obama and his socialism.

    Ron Paul is right when he wrote ” With gold standard, the fed could disappear. The banking industry like any other, subject to the profit-and-loss” and ” The financial industry would be forced to surrender its love for socialism (for losses not gains) and become honest again”.

    THE RON PAUL SUPPORTERS CREED

    Pay attention Republican voters.

    I am a Ron Paul supporter. This election season, no candidate will get my vote for the Office of President of the United States of America except for Ron Paul. There will be no exceptions. If he does not win the nomination, I will write his name on the ballot.

    No amount of slick talking, flip-flopping, wooing, cajoling, threatening, or condescending will persuade me to vote for any other contender for that office.

    You don’t want to admit it, but you know that the Republican Party cannot beat Obama without me, a Ron Paul supporter. It’s long past time you admit it.

    You and I have conflicting goals. I will only cast a vote for liberty, for peace, for small government, for fiscal sanity and respect for the Constitution of the United States and adherence to the oath of office of the Presidency. You however are content merely to vote for whatever Republican the GOP leadership and the media approve of.

    I will not move. I cannot be persuaded. You cannot win without me.

    I am not here to convince you that Ron Paul’s positions are superior. I am not here to convince you that his foreign policy is in line with traditional conservatism. I am not here to convince you that his understanding of economics put everyone else in Washington to shame. I am not even here to convince you that the positions of the other candidates are not materially different than Obama.

    No, I don’t need to do any of that. I only need to tell you that without me, you have lost. If you do not vote for Ron Paul in your Primary or Caucus, you are already defeated. If you fail to nominate Ron Paul to be the Republican candidate for President, Barack Hussein Obama will serve a second term.

    This is not blackmail. This is not a threat. This is a simple statement of fact.

    I stand firm and I will not accept anything less.

    Romney cannot beat Obama. If only 24% of the Republicans vote in a primary, and its the lowest turnout in 70 years, then Romney’s “victory” is a sham. I was at the events in Phoenix and Ron Pauls people (Democrats, Independents, and Republicans) lined over 2 city blocks. We estimated (by counting a significant section) over 1500 persons. Santorum had about 25. Romney had NONE. He’s buying the nomination with dirty tricks backed by the Republican establishment. They don’t think we notice. WRONG. Romney has a Mormon base to be sure, but at the end of the day Obama’s minions will have a field day with him. He can mimic Ron Paul or Reagan, but he’s no person of principle, moral strength, or vision. He’s simply an opportunist.

    I’m not voting for him. I would vote for Ron Paul in a heartbeat. If he’s not on the ballot, I’ll just write him in. I’ve been fooled by the alleged conservatives since Reagan, and it’s not going to happen again. Perhaps another 4 years of Obama will teach the Republicans that principle and fairness actually matter – at least to some of us!

    BTW I like Newt. He is the only person that could steal me away from a Ron Paul write in, if he got the nomination. I just don’t see it happening.

    • http://synch57.wordpress.com marguerite

      i hope and pray and believe he will win and like you said we can all just write him in; the candidates he is running against are truth takers not truth seekers and Dr. Paul is a real human being and the father of modern truth seekers; also have to mention Alex Jones for his stay with it power. we are entering a new millenium the dawning of the age of aquarius so i think Dr. Paul just might have the universe on his side this time. that old song “the dawning of the age of aquarius the words “jibe” with what Dr. Paul stands for:

      When the moon is in the Seventh House
      And Jupiter aligns with Mars
      Then peace will guide the planets
      And love will steer the stars

      This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius
      The Age of Aquarius
      Aquarius! Aquarius!

      Harmony and understanding
      Sympathy and trust abounding
      No more falsehoods or derisions
      Golden living dreams of visions
      Mystic crystal revelation
      And the mind’s true liberation
      Aquarius! Aquarius!

      When the moon is in the Seventh House
      And Jupiter aligns with Mars
      Then peace will guide the planets
      And love will steer the stars

    Considering all but Paul have been going up and down regularly, I wonder where Paul would be ranked if the total of the votes for each was shown. I suspect he’d be very close to the top.

        The only talent on display, in the case of Romney, Gingrich and Santorum is the “talent” to lie.

    Ron Paul is the only candidate worth voting for, even as a 3rd party , or a write in. Any way it goes, he gets my vote or I will not vote. Hell I will just vote for Øbama. Screw the GOP establishment and all of their dirty political trickery. I am done with them. . .

      Just vote for Ron Paul, no matter what. If BHO gets reelected, it will be the fault of the People who were mentally conditioned by the GOP Wholesale Brainwashing Machine. They will blae it on Ron Paul, but it will really be the Establishment’s fault. The Establishment will deny this, of course, but what else is new?

    Dr.Ron Paul 2012 !!!

  • Lindy Combs

    Dr. Paul must stay his course. God is able! but he has to stay the course.

    i believe, hope and pray Dr. Paul wins; the candidates he is running against are “TRUTH TAKERS” not a ‘TRUTH SEEKER” like Dr. Paul is. I am 54 and have never felt like being part of politics, except when i was too young to demonstrate; so i am getting the chance to fulfill a childhood dream a peaceful revolution for what is our rights as American citizens.

    We are entering a new millenium; the dawning of the age of aquarius so i think Dr. Paul just might have the universe on his side this time. The song from the 60′s paradies Dr. Paul becoming president and what the age of aquarius stands for:

    When the moon is in the Seventh House
    And Jupiter aligns with Mars
    Then peace will guide the planets
    And love will steer the stars

    This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius
    The Age of Aquarius
    Aquarius! Aquarius!

    Harmony and understanding
    Sympathy and trust abounding
    No more falsehoods or derisions
    Golden living dreams of visions
    Mystic crystal revelation
    And the mind’s true liberation
    Aquarius! Aquarius!

    When the moon is in the Seventh House
    And Jupiter aligns with Mars
    Then peace will guide the planets
    And love will steer the stars

    Go President Ron Paul we love you and we are going strong for him in montana ;

    Ron Paul is still going strong alright. I hope he can make it to the retirement home in Texas before he has the big one. Even if he has the big one, I’m sure he’s covered with good government healthcare, like Cheney. But the rest of us idiots should fight tooth and nail any “govment” health coverage by golly. It’s the Dick Cheney’s that should survive.

    Since Ron Paul didn’t want government to do anything anyway, we won’t miss Ron Paul.

      Well, George, since the last Congressional baseball game, Ron Paul hit it “out of the park” and scored the only such home run in the history of the game (look it up in Ripley’s) and regularly bikes 25 miles a day, he’ll likely live longer than you, which is probably a good thing.

    Another form of censorship, am retired USN vet living in spain, on line was trying to see the video of Ron Paul/ Leno interview via LP, guess what? message that reads ” contains contents from NBC Universal blocked on copyright grounds.” To me this is another mode of unwanted censorship. Shades of 1984.

    I love how so many say the most important thing is to get Obama out. What is the use of taking one MSM poster boy and replacing him with another, who might say he is different but in truth will be doing the same thing.
