RAW Footage: Romney Supporter Admits Being Paid to Support Romney



“Fake Support: Romney Campaign Pays People to Support Candidate.”

Which pill do you choose? The red pill? Or the blue pill? The color blue on the shirts of South Florida Romney “supporters” may correlate with the pill they chose to take, as was evident with one individual who, on camera, stated he was paid to wear the Romney shirt and create the impression at the voting location that there was significant support there.

The YouTube video (found here: http://www.youtube.com/wa... ) clearly shows a Romney supporter claiming that he was registered with the government as unemployed, and at some point was given the offer to become active for the “cause”.

Dr.Ron Paul's 2002 Predictions

This is absolutely

This is absolutely ridiculous. We just need to keep educating people. At least Ron Paul doesn't have to buy any support, that's for sure!

looks like romney really does have a record of creating jobs.

the one guy said he likes gingrich. maybe they will be wearing gingrich T-shirts next week, this is if newton has enough money to pay them.



This MUST go viral.

"Alas! I believe in the virtue of birds. And it only takes a feather for me to die laughing."

It is

Up to everyone as an individual not to "sell their soul"

looks like a scene from idiocracy

only instead of laughing I am crying

A true flower can not blossom without sunlight and a true man can not live without love.

The Big Picture for Ron Paul - A Game Over for his Opponents

The last place finish in SC mobilized me to create a new weapon for Ron Paul.

I wrote an article comparing Ron Paul to the other candidates and presenting his positions on issues I find most important:


It could be a very effective tool. A piece of literature to share and print. A lot of talking points can be extracted as well.

Hoping for Newt

Hope that Newt, in his "scorched earth" campaign, nails it Mitt... That is before he utters the magic sentence that combines "blacks", "janitors" and "food stamps" which produced his "surge" with the South Carolina family-value Christians.

Really ??!!

And we're going after dictators to spread democracy ??
this is disgusting ...

We need to change what we call them

They are not supporters of Romney.
They are supported by Romney...

Romney is the only *supporter* in his campaign...

thanks for posting this. I've

thanks for posting this.

I've shared with my friends and family... it's important to see this kind of stuff.

The slogan press on has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race. No person was ever honored for what he received. Honor has been the reward for what he gave.

Come on guys,

They're just taking the jobs Americans don't want.

I can tell you with 100% certainty that the candidate who got 20 tea party leaders behind him in NH was NOT Mitt Romney, but Ron Paul.

Romney essentially bought the election here in NH, garnering endorsements from 15 people he ‘helped’, including the person you saw on FOX.. (She has been repeatedly asked if Romney paid off her campaign debt, and refuses to answer. What can we assume from her silence?)

She had no business going on FOX to declare that NH's tea party supported Romney as she is NOT our spokesperson.

Reminds me of the many Scientology protestors that were paid

Perception matters enough to pay for it.

perception indeed

Can you document any such payments? Or is that just something you have been told -- and, who told you? Sounds like something Scientology, Inc. would say.

What is begun in anger, ends in shame.

No worries

I'm not Scientology...I dislike all religions orgs equally.

However, this video reminded me of a video of some Scientology protestors caught admitting they were paid.

This technique isn't new:

This has been going on since Elvis and the Beatles, and probably before, what we need to emphasize is that Ron Paul supporters are never paid, they are out there in support of a core belief. Someone put up a video of the Ron pauls Supporters missing work for the fight of Liberty, and then lets show this video, so we don sound like the "Crazy Uncle in the Basement, babbling about the unsustainability of multitple wars." which I by the way, is much how my family feels about me right now. I am glad to have some people here at this site, that understand what we are doing.

Love of God , Love of Country, Love of family, Love of Life, Love of Liberty. I would take a bullet for this man.

Send it all of the news stations

Try some of 'em anyway.


Clean up the sound a little would be helpful.

that is really . . .


*shaking my head*

Why am I not surprised, though?

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Gee, happy freaking Monday,

Gee, happy freaking Monday, people. This makes my stomach hurt.

I guess

This makes Romney the Green candidate.

I've heard this about Picket sign holders, in front of Walmart

being paid by unions. So dirty politicians are probably not much different.

The really frightening thing

is the picture of Romney at the end of the video. Someone please give him a pitchfork and expose the horns!

There are no politicians or bankers in foxholes.

Question now is...

Does RP campaign practice this as well? I'm assuming RP does not, for both financial and ethical reasons, but someone who knows for a fact should speak up here. If the big money candidates pay people to show support, and RP campaign does not, then I believe this would be pretty powerful to mention in the debates in front of everyone, would it not?

By claiming there is no conspiracy, you prove to those who believe in the conspiracy that you are part of the conspiracy.

People from the saint

People from the saint petersburg meetup heard a romney supporter say he was being payed. this week

They were all over the voting places here last time around.

I went up to them and starting asking questions about Mitt. Brought up his mandatory medical plan and other issues, they were tight lipped and wouldn't talk. They are all show and no go. They sure looked nice though, dressed in sharp duds and young and impressionable.

They looked like an army of mitts in his famous photo with money stuffed in his suit and holding it out for others to see.

I wonder if this time around they will answer any questions.

You folks must be new to the

You folks must be new to the rodeo.

This is STANDARD PROCEDURE. People standing in front of a polling place handing out candidate materials for major candidates of the major parties are almost always paid. The term for the money is "Street Money."
