Skip to comments.Voting for Ron Paul -- and Against the GOP Establishment
Posted on 01/03/2012 2:53:26 PM PST by stillafreemind
Maybe it's time for a GOP rebellion. Why should voters listen to the GOP or Rove when they helped us into this soup? Does anyone think Romney has the guts to cut a trillion dollars in spending? Would he or Gingrich demand a declaration of war before putting troops in harms way? Are either of them going to get back to the Constitution, or just give it timely lip service?

Think I should take popcorn 'cause the "chitchat" could be interesting. Will be interesting to see if any minds get changed before the vote.
Will there be free lessons in Farsi and Arabic?
Voting for Ron Paul -- and For Obama
I think your free mind has lost itself.
I believe Newt quotes the Constitution quite often and refers to the history of our country. I have no fear Newt will serve our country quite well and as intended by the founding fathers and the Constitution. GO NEWT!
I could really get behind a Paul/Napolitano ticket.You What?!?!
Yahoo-Obama beating the Leftist drum for RuPaul, the stalking horse.
Yawn. Sorry, I only vote for candidates with real eyebrows.
Voting for Ron Paul is like...voting for Ron Paul.
A free mind is a terrible thing to waste.
OK, say Iran is beginning to lob nukes at Israel, but didn’t declare war on the US. What Would Paul Do?
This doesn’t mean Janet Napolitano does it?
Yikes, a free mind, or a pot filled, smoked filled, dellusional mind. Get a grip, really?
He’s got the Bevis and Butthead vote locked up.
This doesnt mean Janet Napolitano does it?I can't imagine who else she's talking about, and it shows that Tomfeld is as much a barking moonbat as Paul.
If I could, I would vote for Paul in Iowa too. It will be nice to tell the establishment Republicans (many who are here at FR) that the Democratic party has a “big tent” too, have at it.
I see no other viable candidate in the GOP that will amount to any kind of change. Bachmann never ceases to shoot herself in the foot. Santorum, Gingrich, and Romney have proven over and over that they will take the path of least resistance, and nobody, I mean nobody, takes Perry or Huntsman serious.
Basically, if you are for the status quo, but you just want to put a big R in front it, vote for anyone but Paul. If you really want to shake it up, vote for Paul.
"Only a dope could write this"
We are doomed to Marxism, very sad, I'm glad I'm old.
I took it to mean Judge Napolitano.
“If I could, I would vote for Paul in Iowa too. It will be nice to tell the establishment Republicans (many who are here at FR) that the Democratic party has a big tent too, have at it.”
Guess what? If you think FR is loaded with ELITES....you are a libertarian. There. Feeeeel better now?
I don't like telling people what they are "for". But if you vote Romney, Santorum or Perry you will get status quo no matter what you are for. If you vote Newt you might get change, if you vote Paul you will make the ruling class heads explode.
But Paul needs to wise up about Islam and Iran or more then elite heads might be exploding.
I’m glad you’re old too.
Racist, jew hating, Iran friendly, pot smoking, trufer endorsing, liberal ideals need to kick the bucket.
BTW, I thought you put me on your “ignore” list?
I guess I just make too much sense for you to ignore, huh?
“But Paul needs to wise up about Islam and Iran or more then elite heads might be exploding.”
You couldn’t get odds on that in Vegas at any price.
Hey..if you like those two paragraphs..hop to it.
Ergo - dummy article. Obviously a lose-lose all the way around.
We're in the nomination process, and only a well known, well financed, very qualified conservative candidate has any hope of gaining the GOP nomination... that damned sure isn't Ron Paul.
'Conservatives' have cut their own throats by getting behind candidates that historically won't cut it with the general public - that has preferred former governors as presidential candidates. The few senators, and or members of the House that have been elected, have generated little enthusiasm, and won through dubious means or circumstances at the time.
Perry is the only conservative that ~might~ have a chance with the general public. Any other candidate will most likely lose the general election. History looms quite large behind that statement. But of course, voters aren't very smart these days, paying little attention to their forefathers or history itself.
According to NARAL Pro-Choice America...Paul voted "anti-choice" 93 times in the House, out of 106 opportunities.
Source Fox News today: Santorum, Paul Compete to Prove Pro-Life Credentials
Hmmm...So Ron Paul agreed with the pro-abortion industry 1/8th of the time, eh??? (13 out of 106, times...about 12.3%)
That's being "pro-life"????
That racist anti-national defense pro-dope isolationist nutcase has zero chance of getting the nomination but if he did, Obama would win all 57 states by a wide margin.
I would NOT vote for Paul under any conditions, EVER!
Oh, I like ‘em all right.
They show the sheer hypocritical lunacy of a Paul-tard.
One minute endorsing some of America’s most conservative citizens - then the next endorsing a liberal nut-case.
Wow, I can feel the love. Guess the no personal attacks rule is no longer in force. Sorry to tell ya, yeah I am be older but I am in very good shape, so hopefully you will have a long wait waiting for me to "kick the bucket".
Sad to see FR reduced to mindless, idiotic, personal attacks on Freeper that would just like to see a return to small constitutional government. When I joined this group it was dedicated to protecting and defending the Constitution of the USA. As a USMC vet I took an oath to do just that. An oath I intent to keep as best I can.
“Guess what, if you think those here supporting Romney..”
Figure we got lots of those here, do you?
Ask not for whom the Short Bus rolls...it rolls for thee.
I attended the Iowa cauces some years ago....Folks like yourself were generally seated in the back, WAAAAAY in the back.
He's the Dennis Kookcinich of the Republican Party.
I understand your position, kinda like cutting off you penis in protest of homosexual sex....neat.
“Being here much longer than you, I KNOW they are here.”
You’re BRAGGING about getting senile? OK...whatever floats your boat.
Or perhaps voting for someone who is not identical to their opponent?
Have it though, a vote for RomneySantorumGingrichObama is a vote for RomneySantorumGingrichObama..
Are you actually capable of making a point or only when mommy and daddy are watching your Internet time?
“Are you actually capable of making a point or only when mommy and daddy are watching your Internet time?”
Made my point. You didn’t like it, so I thought it was time to play with the geezer. You seemed to like it.
Uh huh... Anyway, back to sanity.. Go Paul 2012!!
Probably Judge Napolitano he’s been barking at the moon lately. From what I can tell, he’s Paulette.
Please, don’t feed the fool.
Your outrage is misplaced. "Those here"? Like the owner of this site and forum?
You think that Jim Robinson doesn't care about our Constitution?
You're for Ron Paul, which makes you just as stupid as the rest of his lunatic followers.
Why does crackpot Ron Paul trample the US Constitution? Sadly he must obviously think “provide for the common defence” means ignoring enemies and threats and being unprepared to defend US interests around the world.
“Uh huh... Anyway, back to sanity.. Go Paul 2012!!”
Uh huh. A libertarian.
Drink your prune juice and go take a nap.
Ignore that funny feeling in your tummy, it will pass.
Outraged PaulTARD, but aren't you all? LOL.
