    Here is video of Herman Cain being heckled by Ron Paul supporters as he tried to give a speech today in Alabama. Cain told them, “With all due respect, I’m going to give this speech today, thank you very much.” He was interrupted again, and told the Paul supporters, “Are you all going to let me do my speech or not?” He added: “All I’m asking for is the respect for me to give my comments and my speech. . . Just be respectful.”
  • Ron Paul is For Amnesty and Has a Terrible Record on Illegal Immigration

    08/28/2011 7:17:37 PM PDT · by mnehring · 86 replies
    Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) was first elected in 1976 but has never authored any legislation to stop illegal immigration. This has occurred despite the fact he represents Texas which has the nation’s longest border with Mexico. He is against the E-Verify program to stop employers from hiring illegal aliens. In fact, he is against all laws prohibiting employers from hiring illegal aliens. He opposes Arizona’s get tough policies and the deportation of people who are here illegally. If a state wants open borders that is fine with him. NumbersUSA gives him an “F” rating on immigration. When he ran for...

    The Hill, Washington, DC ^ | 2010-05-17 | Brent Budowsky
    Behind the scenes the insider Republican establishment is now in an uproar as the odds are high that Rand Paul wins the Republican nomination for senator from Kentucky. This would be a major embarrassment to Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and raises a big question about 2012: Why is Sarah Palin getting so much attention, and Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) so little, from the national media and pundit classes? Certain pundits appear strangely infatuated with Palin, but it seems to me that if Ron Paul runs for president in 2012, he could win a plurality of delegates in a multi-candidate field....

    I will freely admit that I did a bad, bad thing last week. Well, it wasn't a really "bad" thing unless you were one of those that fell for it I guess. What did I do that was so bad? I set up the Paulbots. Yes, evil rotten me, I know. When I wrote "Earmarking Our Way to Oblivion" I purposefully left out any mention of Ron Paul even though I knew he was just as dirty as all the rest. See, Mr. Paul's own earmark fetish was certainly no real secret to anyone paying attention and with enough desire...

    "If you analyze it I believe the very heart and soul of conservatism is libertarianism." — Ronald Reagan Nonconformist: of or characterized by behavior or views that do not conform to prevailing ideas or practices. Recently Fox's Glenn Beck offered citizens a quiz to pinpoint where they fall in their political beliefs. The Nolan Chart (www.nolanchart.com/survey.php) provides questions which when answered honestly will place the responder somewhere on the political spectrum depicting conservative-libertarian-liberal-statist-centrist sections. Citizens who consider themselves conservative might be surprised to find they're somewhere between conservative and libertarian. Commentators have had a difficult time labeling tea party citizens....

    Following months of heated public debate and aggressive closed-door negotiations, Congress finally cast a historic vote on healthcare late Sunday evening. It was truly a sad weekend on the House floor as we witnessed further dismantling of the Constitution, disregard of the will of the people, explosive expansion of the reach of government, unprecedented corporate favoritism, and the impending end of quality healthcare as we know it. Those in favor of this bill touted their good intentions of ensuring quality healthcare for all Americans, as if those of us against the bill are against good medical care. They cite fanciful...

    Washington Independent ^ | Friday March 5, 2010
    In the wake of his somewhat surprising — and very soft-peddled — victory in the CPAC straw poll, Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) is gearing up for a big showing at the next GOP cattle call. Paul’s Campaign for Liberty has purchased 800 tickets for the event, held next month in New Orleans, at a total cost of $92,000. If 800 Paul fans show up, would it be enough to win the event’s straw poll? Well, in 2006, Sen. Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) won the straw poll with a 36.9 percent plurality — of only 1,427 ballots. An email with some info...

    Whenever I post something negative about Ron Paul (which is just about every time I post about him), I get the NASTIEST comments and emails. He doesn't have a lot of supporters but those that do support him do so with a passion. That isn't particularly bothersome, after all people should have some passion. Problem is Ron Paul is a "drooling crazy " type. This guy must have of fallen out the crazy tree and hit every branch on the way down. Today while he questioned Fed Chair Ben Bernanke Paul turned on his Crazy overdrive and made some absolutely...

I am not really sure why Tiger Woods apologized on worldwide television to golfers, his wife, his mother, to me, to you...to the entire world, for what appears a personal matter, but I tell you who needs to apologize publicly is Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke. He needs to apologize for his snarky, condescending attitude toward Congressman Ron Paul when Paul , 1. asked Bernanke about allegations that the Federal Reserve was involved in funneling money to Saddam Hussein, when Hussein was a favorite of the U.S., and 2....

    When Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina was censured by various GOP county committees in his own state recently, Graham dismissively blamed it on “Ron Paul people.” When Florida governor and U.S. Senate candidate Charlie Crist was defeated in a Republican straw poll by challenger Marco Rubio in December, Crist complained it was nothing more than “Ron Paul people” At this year’s 2010 Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, D.C/, there were plenty of “Ron Paul people,” enough to deliver the congressman a first-place victory in the annual CPAC straw poll, long considered a decent gauge of conservatives’ mindset. But...

    US News & World Report ^ | February 22, 2010 | Mary Kate Cary
    Over the weekend, Ron Paul won the CPAC straw poll for president. Many pundits immediately dismissed the win, for a lot of reasons. (The Atlantic did a roundup of all the "he's irrelevant" comments.) My take on Ron Paul is this: He says a lot of off-the-wall stuff, but his bottom line is that he's a limited-government libertarian. And he's not Mitt Romney, the establishment GOP choice. I think that's why he won. Joe Scarborough likes to say that if you look at where Ross Perot did well in 1992, those are the same places that tea party candidates are...

    For the most part, CPAC ran smoothly, but there's one thing they don't do well, and that's straw polls. In 2008 Romney stacked it by purchasing many, many CPAC tickets for his friends. I don't know how they did it previously, but this year voting was cut off at noon on Friday, before probably half of the attendees were credentialed. As a result, only about 25% of the attendees voted (2,500 out of 10,000), so those who like work for a living and could only come for the big events on Saturday, didn't get counted. But ALL the Ron Paul...

    Still, if the GOP is interested in actually doing something more glorious than its multi-year FUBAR when George W. Bush and the Republicans were fully in charge of the federal government, they'd do well to listen very closely to Dr. No. However rotten Obama and the Dems poll, the GOP should never think anyone believes them when they say they are the party of small government and, for god's sake, we're well past the sad-sack culture-war days of various Republican geniuses like Newt Gingrich (4 percent!) talk up flag-burning amendments (the First Amendment is not a suicide pact with square...

    WASHINGTON (AFP) – A straw poll of US conservative activists saw Texas congressman Ron Paul emerge as the preferred Republican presidential candidate to run against President Barack Obama in 2012. Some 31 percent of the more than 2,000 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) attendees who participated in the poll voted for the outspoken libertarian. Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, John McCain's running mate in 2008, came in third with 7.0 percent, some way behind former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney (22 percent), who had won the CPAC poll for the last three years. There were boos among the crowd as the...

    The Australian ^ | February 22, 2010 | Brad Norington, Washington correspondent
    SARAH Palin may be a darling of the political Right, but another outspoken critic of big government has emerged as the favourite of many mainstream US conservatives for the Republican Party's presidential candidate in 2012. Ron Paul, a Republican congressman from Texas known for his strong libertarian views, won the annual straw poll at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington yesterday with 31 per cent of the 2400 votes cast. Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney, who has topped the poll three times previously, finished second with 22 per cent. Ms Palin, the Republican vice- presidential candidate in 2008, came...

Well, technically it wasn't a primary, it was a straw poll held at CPAC, the huge conservative convention that's been going on the last few days. In the straw poll, Paul easily whipped second-place finisher Mitt Romney -- the former PE chief and liberal Massachusetts governor, who's trying to ride Scott Brown's coattails to a second chance at his party's Presidential nomination....
