  • Ron Paul Keeps On Truckin', But to What End?

    Real Clear Politics ^ | 03/22/2012 | Scott Controy
    About halfway through his second quest for the Republican presidential nomination, Ron Paul has yet to win a single primary or caucus state. Whenever this inconvenient truth is mentioned to his campaign aides, their first point of rebuttal typically is that the Texas congressman won the popular vote in the U.S. Virgin Islands earlier this month. He did so by netting 112 votes in the presidential straw poll there, enough to best Mitt Romney’s haul of 101 islanders, although Romney still gained seven out of the territory’s nine delegates, making it something less than an impactful victory by just about...

    Comrades, another election is upon us in this cesspit of bourgeois excess known as these United States... although nothing 'unites' our class so much as our continual and universal exploitation at the hands of the ruling class. The recent spate of GOP debates, as well as tonight's Iowa caucus, shows us that we cannot remain neutral in this encounter. On the one hand, we have Barack Obama, the neo-liberal candidate whose alleged 'socialism' is merely an epithet employed by the enemies of economic freedom on the Right. Would that this were true! But no, Obama has proved himself time and...

    A profanity-laden, anti-Semitic voice message is helping the Houston Holocaust Museum raise money to save an important World War II artifact. That message on Braeden Howard's voice mail was left after his consulting company publicized the work they are doing with the museum. To restore a 37-foot fishing vessel, similar to those used to smuggle Jews out of Denmark during World War II.

  • Paul hesitant to back Romney if he wins Republican presidential race, cites foreign policy

    Washington Post ^ | 03/16/2012
    COLUMBIA, Mo. — Republican candidate Ron Paul refused Thursday to commit to backing Mitt Romney if the former Massachusetts governor becomes the party’s nominee for president. An anti-war candidate, Paul said he’d need more information about Romney’s international agenda to make that decision. “I’d talk to him and see what kind of a foreign policy he is going to have,” Paul, a congressman from Texas, told reporters at a rally two days before most of Missouri’s counties hold their Republican caucuses. “Mitt’s a friend and we talk a lot. We just disagree on the issues.” Paul has pursued a strategy...

    The Hill ^ | 03/16/2012 | Justin Sink
    Mitt Romney on Thursday denied that he has entered into talks with Ron Paul's campaign to secure his delegates in case the former Massachusetts governor falls short of the 1,144 needed to clinch the GOP nomination. While Romney remains the strong favorite to win the nomination outright, the proportional assignment of delegates in coming primary contests means that the he could fall short of the 1,144 threshold. In that case, signals from Paul to his delegates to support Romney could become crucial for whipping enough votes at the convention. Reports Thursday suggested that Paul and Romney had been discussing that...

    Supposedly Team Paul is engaged in "initial discussions" with Santorum and Gingrich too, but c'mon. Newt's chances at the nomination are only slightly higher than Paul's are and Santorum's hawkish social conservatism makes him a total nonstarter for libertarians. Just today, Reason editor Matt Welch published a column shivering at the thought that Team Sweater Vest might be back for another try in 2016. Romney’s the only game in town for the rEVOLution, just as he’s been since the debates started. (According to Time, one of Romney’s allies joked that Paul is their “deputy campaign manager.”)This is the right time...

    There is an interesting analysis article over at Real Clear Politics that lays out a scenario whereby the August Republican National Convention evolves into the worst nightmare imaginable for party officials – a brokered convention. Based on how Republican candidates for president have done so far with different demographics and regions of the country, Sean Trende predicts how the race for the Republican nomination may play out and lays out a scenario where a brokered Republican convention could take place. Now, it’s no secret that a brokered convention would be a catastrophe for Republican Party leaders use to grand coronations...

    A freshman state legislator joined a Republican field seeking a U.S. Senate seat Thursday, setting his sights on a robust Minnesota network for presidential candidate Ron Paul as a possible route to the party nomination. State Rep. Kurt Bills announced his campaign on a busy intersection in Rosemount, just up the street from a high school where he teaches an early morning economics course before heading to the state Capitol each day. The former city council member said he'd make the nation's debt and deficit the focus of his campaign, though he wouldn't offer hints of how he'd solve it....

    Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul reportedly won the U.S. Virgin Island caucuses Saturday, although it was reported rival Mitt Romney secured the victory. According to the U.S. Virgin Islands’ Republican Party results, Mr. Paul won with 29 percent of the votes, followed by Mr. Romney at 26 percent. Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum placed in third with six percent, followed by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich at three percent of the votes. In contrast, The Associated Press and several other major media outlets reported Mr. Romney as the winner of the Virgin Island caucuses, because he actually comes away from...

    The organizers also state their desire to take control of the local Republican organization and the Republican State Central Committee (RSCC). When speaking about the RSCC, the organizer stated that they wanted a majority on the committee so that they could dictate how the party spends its money, emphasizing that money should only go to candidates that adhere to the platform.
  • Fact Checker: Ron Paul’s misleading ad: Rick Santorum is ‘fake’ fiscal conservative

    Washington Post ^ | 02/23/2012 | Josh Hicks
    Santorum has arguably claimed the mantle of GOP front-runner by virtue of winning the most primaries and polling at or near the front of the pack in Michigan and Arizona, where the next contests take place. So his rivals are taking aim at his record, mainly by attacking his fiscal policies. Ron Paul has gone perhaps furthest in this regard with his latest ad, which suggests the former senator supports ruthless dictators and abortion services. The video only mentions spending, but it’s actually a two- or maybe three-for-one for all intents and purposes, since it questions the candidate’s social and...
  • It’s Time for Ron Paul to Drop Out

    It is time for Ron Paul to pack up his bags and go back to Texas. To the best of my knowledge, nobody in the media or blogosphere (which is technically part of the media) has called for Paul to exit the race. So, let me be the first. Get out! At various times, the media – in print and on air – and GOP establishment have called for the exit of Newt Gingrich, Rick Perry, and John Huntsman. Oddly, nobody has asked the same of Paul. Paul has already admitted that he probably won’t win any states or pick...

    Rush Limbaugh's insults and poor language towards a progressive poster child is still resonating. However, there isn't really a political debate occurring. Rather, it is simply emotional outrage masked as political discourse. This is exactly what's been wrong with the political system for the last 80 plus years: issues are no longer properly analyzed. The Statists have done their best to obfuscate the real debate because they have made every issue a personal attack. The real debate is whether you should work for yourself or you should work for the State. Do your rights flow from nature? Or are your...
