These Ron Paul dipships think they are the only ones who understand the founders' brilliance, but fail to see the wisdom in party politics.
Let's face facts, Ron Paul supporters only care about the cult of personality called Ron Paul, not the founding documents.
But Ron Paul happily swallows whatever the Republican campaign ejaculates into his campaign!
Ron Paul said, “Before I endorse Romney I will need to see that he’s a nut...like me.”
Coming from the creep who blamed us for 9-11-01, who cares
I have to say, people that cannot see the differences between the two (Romney and Obama) are simply morons with no brail cells left.
Romney on the other had will almost assuredly get to replace Kennedy ans Scalia and given his record in Massachusetts he will appoint liberals shifting the balance of the court to liberal for 40 years into the future.
As to only choosing between two candidates in the General election I just don't buy that argument. If the GOP looses this election because they did not nominate a conservative at the top of the ticket then something may change but if they get away with nominating ever more liberal candidates each time around then only more liberals will be elected and whether they have a R or D behind their name will make no difference..
Ron Paul thinks radical islam is only angry because of our foreign policy and not the inherent evil of their religion. That makes Ron Paul unqualified to be a dog catcher.
I guess "Dr Paul" makes more money as a politician than as an MD.
For a smart many he sure is stupid!
Talk about losing touch with reality.
Hard to believe you don’t see any difference between the communist and the republican. A communist by the way who supports marxist and islamic terrorists, and has the full support of the looney liberals who don’t give a rat’s ass about anything you stand for. Why are you even here?
Because this is a Conservative not a Republican site.
If the owner chooses to make this a Republican site then I would not be here.
May you should take your concerns that there are Conservatives here and not just Republicans up with the owner...
I always have thought that this little gollum was insane. This does nothing to change my opinion of the little man.
This is the great thing about you Ron Paul supporters.
Once we pin you down with the facts, you always resort back to your emotion based drivel. The Paul crowd, and the Left, share that character flaw. You assume emotion based drivel screamed at volume make up for a complete lack of reason and fact.
The veneer of reason the Paul crowd affects is about a millimeter thick.
What’s with the sunglasses? You going for the Clancy look?
I'm certainly no fan of Paul, but it should be pointed out that the Republican nominee thinks there is no connection between Islam and jihadism.
The problem is the media and the punditry have created a false narrative. Conservatives have bought it. Voters have been told that there is a clear choice. On one side is a Democratic party that believes government should take extraordinary measures to stimulate the economy and alleviate the effects of unregulated greed among the big Wall Street banks. On the other side is a Republican party offering radical free market policies that would cut government spending to the bone and take us back to gilded age of robber barons and sweatshops.
The portrayal of the Democrats is for the most part accurate. They really do believe that government should act despite the fact that every time such policies have been enacted they have failed. One only has to compare the responses to the depression of 1920 and 1929. One resulted in a quick recovery, the other lead to fifteen years of stagnation that was only relieved by the demobilization at the end of World War II and the explosion of prosperity in the 1950s brought about by the reduction of federal economic management.
It is the image of the Republicans that bothers me. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are being portrayed as champions of free markets. Nothing could be further than the truth. Ryan's proposed budget has been criticized as “drastic.” The truth is even Fox News recognizes that Ryan's budget plan doesn't actually slash the budget. Even the “cuts” are pushed out years from now, when Ryan and company are long gone. In reality, the Republicans wouldn't know a real budget cutting plan if it bit them on the anal sphincter, and would not vote for it if they saw it. Further, there is NOTHING “free market” about Mitt Romney. He is pro-big business, corporatist and state union with business, but “free market” is nothing that even comes close. I said six years ago that Romney would NEVER get the nomination of Republicans,as he was a socialist. He still is. Hasn't moved. The republican party has. The so called “conservatives” show what the libertarians have said all along. You have no principles when it comes to seizing power and will sell out anything. You are just statist power freaks, like the left. The only thing Romney has going for is that he is not Obama. This will result in a victory which winds up being an unmitigated disaster for those who think they are “saving the country.”
How can I say this? Well, Romney is going to win the WH, due to the horrific ineptitude, muddleheaded leftism, and general incompetence of the current resident. All the freepers are going to cheer and congratulate themselves that “disaster has been averted.” Hooray!
The problem is that the policies of Romney will only hasten the coming collapse. Perhaps the stupidest hope of conservatives is that they are “buying time” with Romney. FOOLS AND DUNDERHEADS!!! THERE IS NO TIME. The state of bankruptcy is HERE.... NOW. The next president is going to preside over an economic catastrophe that is going to make the great depression look like a happy picnic. There is no avoiding it. The worst is yet to come. There will be a collapse worse than 2008 and if Romney is President what the majority of the people will believe is that his “free market” plan did not work. All they will know is Romney's “radical capitalism” caused a disaster and the very idea of genuine free market solutions will be set back for decades, if not generations.
This is foolishness in the extreme.
You think you are saving us. In fact, you may be destroying a belief in free markets for generations.
Enjoy your victory, suckers.
Folks who talk about voting “the lesser of the two evils” need to learn to think past the next election. You are in fact voting for the GREATER of the two evils, no matter how much you protest to the contrary.
Dude, you're thinking is loopy. Even if the GOP had the nads to filibuster one attempted liberal replacement for Scalia, Thomas or Kennedy, they can't keep doing that for his whole term. And defeating one bad nominee doesn't guarantee the next attempts will be better. And the Supreme Court isn't the whole ball of wax either - there are all the circuit and appellate appointments too. You are taking an awful chance just assuming that Obama won't be able to replace a conservative judge. Additionally, Ginsburg will likely step down. That means there is at least a chance that Romney will be pressured by conservatives to nominate a conservative replacement that might shift the balance in our favor. Obama will replace Ginsburg with another leftist.
Maybe Ron Paul feels like the Freeper who posted this:
Who cares who wins. There is no alternative to corrupt governmant just a variation... The house and even Rayn just voted to give Obama every dime he wanted. Obama hasnt been the irresponsible one the republicans in the house are by feeding his communist plans with every stinking dime he wanted. They are culpable and cannot be trusted with our liberty anymore than the left.
I am convinced evil is evil and I will not support evil whether its an R or a D.
I'm out of this round. The country is dead either way.
There are plenty of similarities between Mitt Romney and President Obama. During Romney's term as governor in Massachusetts he did just what President Obama did - force everyone to buy health insurance. The Romney health reforms caused havoc for independent contractors and small businesses in MA. Now he says he's against Obamacare, lets hope he's telling the truth now.
However, as liberal as Romney is, he's less bad than Obama, and sitting out the election is of course a bad idea. One don't have to be "for" Romney, just against Obama.
There is no need for Ron Paul to endorse anybody, since for most voters hearing that Ron Paul endorses a candidate doesn't help the candidate. But we all know what Ron Paul thinks of the current administration's policies, and that may steer some of his supporters away from the Democrats.
Look at Romney's appointments while he was governor of Massachusetts. Liberals all..
I don't believe what any politician says I look at their record Romney appoints liberal judges..
The last time I heard the term "MAVERICK" was a week before the MSM's poster boy against Bush lost his bid for president........Two years of hearing "The Maverick John McCain" got to be pretty nauseous.......
Do we now have a new "MAVERICK" in our party?
F#@* all the Losertarians who come here to FR and spew their filth.
The crazy uncle speaks. Go back to the basement RP, nobody cares what you have to say. Your occutard followers will vote for you. Go hang out with them.
What we need to do is kick this fool out of the Republican party. He needs to go back to his own party.
well said. Wow. anyone that prefers Obama to Romney has no business posting at this site
I was always a bit confused as to how libertarians have come to be identified as conservatives over the years as they are a one legged stool by Reagan's definition
Pardon the joe Biden moment but
The differences are black & white.
There’s no comparison on issues, values, leadership, and moral values.
Paul will give his seal of approval to four candidates: Green Party nominee Cynthia McKinney, Libertarian Party nominee Bob Barr, independent candidate Ralph Nader and Constitution Party candidate Chuck Baldwin.
And alliances .....
And LRon has got his own endorsement .....
I am so glad this boil on the butt of the GOP has run his last race.
Thats what happens when people stop thinking with their heads and start letting their wish list become their reality.
We can only hope the little roach gets stepped on in the near future. Rand needs to learn from this. He is not bigger than his supporters and he is relevant only so long as his message is coherent.
My next choice is to stay home...NOT going to happen, cast my vote for someone other than Obama and Romney...NOT going to happen, vote Obama..Not in this lifetime OR any other, or vote for Romney..yeah, I can and will do that.
I’m not a purist .. I’m not close-minded..I want the best for my country. Paul is acting like the kid that takes his ball and goes home..and so are SOME of his supporters.
This is the old “paint ‘em all with a broad brush” crap. Just because I like the fiscal policies that Paul put forth, I can’t justify staying home or voting for Paul. How does that change the mess we’re in?
I guess I just want to make it clear that there are plenty of people that had their eye on Palin, Paul and others that are indeed voting for Mr. Romney.
I’ll also go as far as saying that I really had to hold my nose and vote for McCain last time around. The only reason that I could do it at all was because of Palin. I don’t have that negative feeling with the Romney/Ryan ticket.
Just wanted to vent a wee bit.
As Herman Cain says, "C. Edmund Wright's sharp wit has been a must-read on the web for years, and now you must read this book!"

If I were Mitt, I’d be greatly relieved. LOL
My first reaction upon reading the headline what "What a jackass!" - which is exactly what Judge Napolitano said today about Biden. We agree.
Cong. Paul is leaving public life.
He won't be missed...
You are correct, sir.
Isn’t Ron Paul part of the reason Romney is the nominee? And now he has the nerve not to endorse him.
Ron Paul likes Obama stance against Israel too much. Maybe Pres. Hussein can invite Iranian press tv to interview him as Ron Paul did.
Ron, yuh big dummy! The ain’t the same! Romney’s the white guy with the sane VP.
Further proof that Paul is mentally deficient.
Paul exhibits the same kind of political xenophobia that made Birchers conclude Eisenhower was a communist. He might have some legitimate points to make about spending and a few other areas, but overall he comes off as a nut.
No need for me to add anything, you pretty much laid down the landscape.
Is reassuring Obamas re-election the best scenario for the USA?
Voting is a civic duty is it not? How does throwing a tantrum and taking your ball and going home because you didnt get your way beneficial to the country? I thought that part of being an adult or a good citizen was sometimes having to make decisions out of less than perfect options.
Yes, I have heard all of the arguments. NO MORE!! blah, blah blah. Or the better one, someone Romney will make things worse and then it will get blamed on the GOP.
Those are all strawman arguments. One, I do not think that Romney could be worse than Zero. I definitely didnt support him in the primaries. But if given the choice between him and Zero, I choose Romney. At least with him there is a snowballs chance of getting something done to fix this mess, even more so with a GOP House and Senate. With Zero, there is no chance, no matter who controls the House and Senate. Not to mention the fact the we WILL lose the SCOTUS for a generation or two. And we know that Romney is a US citizen and does not hate this country. And to think that he and Obama are the same in their views of how to run an economy and their qualifications is ignorant at best.
Obviously, we all needed to support our candidate in the primaries. But in the general election, we MUST be rid of Obama. If not, we can all pat ourselves on the back and gloat about how principled we are as the country we love circles the drain.
Besides, I do not know why sitting out the election because the right candidate (whatever that is)was not nominated is considered the only position of principle. My position is also one of principle, defeat Obama. When I vote against Obama, I will be doing so with just as much principle as the person who withholds their vote because they didnt get their way.
This is nothing personal towards you, it is just so frustrating to see this sentiment so prevalent on this site. Do you think the average voter thinks this way? They will vote one way or the other. If true blue Conservatives wont support the GOP candidate, why should they? In the end, politics is the art of the possible.
You have to hand it to liberals and Fabian Socialists for one thing. They understand incrementalism. They seem to be smart enough to understand that in the real world you usually dont get everything that you want in one fell swoop. Why cant Conservatives understand this?
Does Ron Paul endorse anyone but himself and his “traitorous” son who obviously has a slightly different world-view?
No essential difference. Not voting for Romney. Like RP.
