This guy has a lot of nerve, telling lies about Dr. Paul and blatantly trying to steal RP supporters.

Not trying to start any rumors but I heard Mike Rivero of What Really Happened say that Sara Palin has closed her campaign website and has endorsed Ron Paul for the nomination of the GOP to run for President.
Anyone else heard anything on this?

Allen West claims to be a warrior politician.

I'd suggest he read the first and holiest book of military strategy before he goes off touting his understanding of warfare. It's obvious he doesn't understand Rule #1.

But I'll let him sink his own ship. Obviously he hasn't read the Constitution either.

But.....

there hasn't been a primary since he won in 2010. What is the author of the article talking about?

this was all set up. By

this was all set up. By inviting a homosexual republican group, it gave those who knew they could not win an excuse to not show up. They knew Ron was going to win and now the media can take the air out of Pauls sails.

and it'll get reported as

"Ron Paul, Flaming Success with Radical Gay Activists".

"Paul -- who won big in 2010,

"Paul -- who won big in 2010, and whose energetic core of supporters have proven a lot better at winning him beauty contests than primaries"

Isn't it just awful how Ron Paul *cheats* by having energetic supporters who believe in him---instead of winning the old-fashioned GOP way by buying votes, peddling influence, belonging to globalist thinktanks that favor him, and having the mainstream media play ball on his behalf..?
