Ron Paul has sold out the liberty movement. I can not believe how we have been betrayed!Submitted by Neverquit on Sat, 01/16/2010 - 19:34
Those that believe this should be ashamed of acting like children. You fail to understand anything of how things work. I am going to attempt to explain it to all of you especially Brian Frank.
The biggest problem I see on a regular basis on this forum and other forums is the lack of understanding of how the republican party works and politics in general. If any of us really want to make a difference than take the time to understand the rules and strategy of the game you are attempting to play before you actually play it!
Ron Paul CAN NOT I repeat CAN NOT endorse anyone running against an incumbent republican. Ron Paul is a senior member of the house financial services committee if he endorses anyone other than the incumbent he could lose his seat on that committee that he has worked for to obtain his tenure! Is this what all of you complaining want?
Incumbent : Holding an indicated position, role, office, etc., currently
Tenure : The period or term of holding something
I can already see people saying; Ron Paul endorsed Chuck Baldwin for President against John Mccain so what you are saying is not true. WRONG! John Mccain was not an incumbent for he was running for President and was not an incumbent President he was only seeking to become President!
He has not sold out in any way, unless, you believe that his seat on this committee is not important enough to have a true voice of liberty sitting at that table speaking truth about our current financial system and our massive debt and spending that goes on in Washington! If you don't believe this is an important seat for our cause you would be dead wrong!
I am not going to go into great detail as to how this can happen to Ron Paul's seat because it is not my job to write a book report in an attempt to educate the ignorant, personal freedom comes with personal responsibility, so educate yourselves so you can understand how things work. I also don't want anyone taking my word for it, do the research and confirm it like you should with EVERY piece of information that someone claims is true, never assume anything EVER!
You also may not know what Ron Paul knows about this candidate he has encouraged you to support so, I would ask for a little latitude before you all start jumping to conclusions based on nothing factual!
Comments here are welcome and I may even answer some questions on this subject if I have the time, but please, as stated above, learn the rules of the game before you play the game or you are bound to lose every time you play!
In the mean time, you do not have to support anyone; however, I would suggest if you want liberty candidates that you look at and help the candidates and the people at www.retakecongress.com so we can all make real change that is so very needed in our constitutional republic.
