Ron Paul’s Stealth Campaign

Ron Paul’s Stealth Campaign
UPI
The Ron Paul ground game is working.

Were a big government progressive or media darling candidate siphoning delegates away from the front runner as Congressman Ron Paul is siphoning delegates from Mitt Romney, the mainstream media would be giving the story wall-to-wall coverage. As it is, only those who search for the truth via alternative media outlets have any clue as to what is going on behind the scenes.

Paul’s organization efforts are paying off. His supporters are securing delegates that the media assumed were going to Romney. And many of Rick Santorum’s delegates are migrating into the Paul camp as well. The MSM’s delegate count is a lie. The Paul ground game is working as Paul tries to deny Romney the 1,144 delegates needed to win the nomination and to force a brokered convention.

We have begun reminding voters of President Barack Obama’s Marxist background and his Marxist associates. We will continue to do this, because there is no question his policies are bad news for a free and prosperous country.

But Romney is little better—think of the difference between traveling down the road at 100 mph (Obama) or 75 mph (Romney). Romney’s a big government statist. That he’s running as a Republican makes him even more insidious than Obama because Romney’s a chameleon who attempts to cloak himself in the veil of conservatism (much like George W. Bush did).

And Romney has no respect for the voting process. While Paul and his supporters are using the Republican Party’s own rules to put Paul supporters in the delegate seats and officer positions at local party organizations, Romney supporters are lying, handing out fake ballots, portraying themselves as Paul supporters, changing the rules–and often making up new rules as they go–in an effort to game the system. In other words, the Romney camp is doing exactly what it has accused the Paul camp of doing.

Romney has deceived a lot of people who don’t pay attention into thinking that he is a conservative. His campaign spokesman used rare candor when he compared Romney’s primary campaign to an Etch A Sketch. He made it clear that once Romney secures the nomination he will jog to the center. That’s the same ground Obama will try and occupy once he gets his arms back around his base. But in the end, remember that both Romney and Obama are controlled by the banksters.

I often hear it said and see it written that a vote for Paul is a vote for Obama, and that nothing matters beyond defeating Obama. Nothing could be further from the truth.

What is true is that a vote for Obama or a vote for Romney is a vote for more government spending, more foreign wars, more Federal Reserve money printing, less individual wealth and, ultimately, a complete collapse of the system.

There are two choices in this election: serfdom or freedom. Voting for Romney or Obama is a vote for serfdom.

Don’t let anyone tell you that you should support Romney over Paul simply to bring the GOP together and/or to defeat Obama, especially if your State is yet to hold its primary vote or caucus. Your choice of who to vote for is yours and yours alone. You should vote for the candidate who best represents your views of what America should be. If you let someone else sway you to vote contrary to your conscience in order to satisfy his sense of expediency or because of some fallacious argument, you have betrayed your own values.

Remember the words of Samuel Adams who wrote:

Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote that he is not making a present or a compliment to please an individual — or at least that he ought not so to do; but that he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country.

And remember: Whether Paul is able to pull off an upset and secure the nomination or not, Ron Paul is winning. He’s laying the groundwork for a much more conservative Republican Party in the future. And he’s spreading an exciting conservative message to thousands of supporters—young and old—who will be in a position to reshape the GOP in coming elections.

If you value liberty, send a message to the GOP: no Paul, no vote.
