Posted on 04/27/2011 5:34:00 AM PDT by Freemarkets101
In an effort to tap the tea party voter base, Ron Paul announced Tuesday that he will be forming a presidential exploratory committee, offering up a second chance at the Republican presidential bid.
Congressman Paul formed a sort of "cult" following during the 2008 election, raising more than $35 million but falling short of wooing any caucasus or primaries.
But Paul claims the country has changed since 2008, with "literally millions of more people now concerned about things I talked about four years ago." This may be true, and so far Paul's views on high government spending and the Federal Reserve's irresponsible rate changes are, arguably, more critical than any other Republican candidate.
Maybe things will be different for Paul this time around. After all, his ideology follows the tea party initiative to a T, and back in 2008, this grassroots movement had yet to sprout.

Ron Paul’s chances have doubled.
From 1% to 2%.
The Paulbots are like followers of Scientology.
Ohhh.... good grief!!!!!
BWAHAAAAAAHAAAAAAA! Paul has a better chance this time around. The man who’s a Truther, blames America for the 9/11 attacks, and believes we shouldn’t defend ourselves militarily, has a better chance this election. Yeah, right. The man’s a kook. He’s also well into his 70’s. Give it up.
Ron Paul has no chance. The average voter is stupid!
Better chance of what ? Going to Shady Pines ? He’ll be 77 in 2012.
What is it that the pervert Paul thinks he has a better chance at? Dividing the votes of the right-wing in order to help Obama and the democrats?
I talked to two Paulbots at my work yesterday and they both are excited to support Paul. Then I asked them if they were worried that Paul would divide the vote and help Obama and they both admitted that worried them.
If Paul really care about the direction of the country then he would drop out and support a real conservative for the republican nomination.
He does not stand even a remote chance of being elected with anti-American rhetoric that blames America and appeases our enemies.
Surely this time Paultard strikes a paper match at the bottom of the ocean it will light right up.
How many times can that fail...
Minus the common sense and charm.
And movie stars.
Let’s get serious. He is going to be 76 in August. If McLame got the label of being someone’s grandfather, Paul is ancient!
They really are. I remember four years ago they were all wetting themselves and saying that Ron Paul was going to surprise everybody and win the GOP nomination.
Here they go with that same silliness again...
Gotta admit, though...the Paulbots can be quite entertaining. To a point.
Then they just get obnoxious.
What, you joined FReeREpublic today just to denigrate me? HA! I won’t even say welcome. Take your 77 year old wimp of a Truther and shove it, Paulbot. Your time around here will be short. But I’m betting on you being a truther retread.
Yep...smells like a retread Paultard troll.
Answer this: DID Ron Paul appear on Alex Jones ‘show’ or not?
RP...as much as I like him...is the political equivalent at the Presidential level, of a fart in the wind....
Oops! What happened, sevika, someone deleted your post. Oh, oh.
Whoa. This was an IBTZ that was short lived. sevika apparently is no more. I did a user search and came up with nothing, nada, zip. Kittens didn’t even have time to play...
There’s still k5kor.
I think you called it right off the bat.
Him got broke-ded.
Yeah, I must have. Never had a chance to say bye bye, either. Of course, I probably wouldn't have anyway...
I just checked its posts.
Apparently, there's an Obazombie among us.
It is thanking and prasing Bambi for bin Laden's demise.
No praise for Bush or Petraeus, but lots for Obie.
I dunno about you, but these folks that claim to have gotten divine inspiration from having mind-melded with Ron Paul’s pecker give me the creeps.
4 words for Emperor Zero:
I don’t believe anything that comes out of his mouth.
Yep, I just found some of his tripe myself. Pinged you on my response to him on a different thread. A troll for sure, and a little runt to boot the way he cusses. We don't need his type here.
You have to go to Aljazzer to hear Bush and Petraus mentioned....go figure! They reported Bushes statements and various other venues about Bush which were favorable .
I was at work reading along and saw k5’s thread get vaped.
I like how he curses and then ‘praises God’, that’s a nice touch.
His handler at DU must have taught him that one.
Yeah, they’re a funny lot for sure. Awful sure of themselves with little to back it up beyond blind allegiance. And, I’m being kind...
My wife and I said the same thing this morning. We want to see the body. Already, we've had fake photos aired. Supposedly the body has been dumped at sea. What's going on? Some of this just doesn't feel right. I want independent proof. I admit I haven't read all the threads, but color me skeptical for now.
Neither do I.
And just FYI - we heard about it first thing this morning our time. (Between 7 and 8 a.m.)
The initial reaction was elation.
Then, people started hearing about his hasty sea burial and the compound burning and troops here were expressing skepticism before FR came alive with it.
One young Army Captain said "Oh, if it turns out this was faked, Obama is finished."
So, at least from my perspective, there's a lot of questioning of what's being reported going on among the ranks.
Osama supposedly ate it last Monday morning, if so Obama’s statements last night about “This morning” would have to be pre-recorded.
And many of the press releases would also have to have been pre-written.
Not that the press hasn’t prewritten releases before.
We’ve spotted them posting articles with future dates and ‘future’ news on them before.
Usually to be flushed down the memory hole until it is convenient to rerelease.
As for disposition of the corpse, I don’t buy it either.
Especially since it takes awhile to do a DNA test, and they had to have waited for confirmation of the results before stating they got him.
Which points to him having bought it last Monday.
Yeah, we need a Che Guevera moment where the corpse is publicly displayed and confirmed as “the real deal.”
Too many questions, IMO, to blindly accept what we’re being told. Until the timeline can be worked out, and DNA can be confirmed, I’m not going to celebrate. I just don’t trust this administration. Period.
Agreed, I don’t trust zero further than I can bicycle joust him.
And since that is an impossibility, that means I don’t trust him at all -for those readers from mid Californistan.
Been out golfing since the am. Boy, am I pooped. And don’t ask about the score... :)
Any more scoop since I’ve been gone? I saw on another thread I was called to that that k5 fella may have been zotted. Is that true? That would be great.
