when the grinch finally got his ballroom halfway filled...

did you see it?

EVERY guy in the crowd had a suit on!

are you kidding me?

check it out...its freaking hilarious...you can't get the picture now so, imagine that?

also, its being reported that of the 20 million dollars his campaign has spent, only 21k, thats 21,000 came from the "people"

the other 20 million 979,000 came from superpac millionaires...i guess thats why all the suits!

so, just who is voting for this guy?
certainly no one is donating to his campaign!

this people of this country are being lied to

its 'cos I owe ya, my young friend...
Rockin' the FREE world in Tennessee since 1957!
9/11 Truth.

Can you substantiate any of this?

I would REALLY love to send this information out to my mailing list, if true.

LOL - relax

its all part of the plan.

LOL - relax?

Laugh out loud - relax? You say that it is all part of the plan. I want to know who's plan it was to get our asses kicked from one end of this giant country to the other end of this giant country. If this was/is our plan, we are in serious need of a new General.

The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men and women to not support Ron Paul!

Look What We are Up Against and How Well We are Doing

Look what we are up against and how well we are doing since 4 years ago. We have more RP delegates going to the county and state conventions than we had four years ago. Ron is getting more votes and more people are waking up. We up against a multi-billion media empire against a twenty million campaign. People a packing the house where ever Ron Paul is speaking. It may have to catastrophic event to wake people up when the economy goes south or the dollar crashes, wonder what the hell happen.

We are young

We will take back this country. Don't worry.

I believe you...

you will take back this country due to the wildfires Dr. Paul has set across this country. There is no way the corruption will continue much longer. I am not young, but I sure hope I'm around to see it happen. This is no longer the America I was brought up in and it is not the America I want my children and grandchildren to inherit. Having worked with many younger people in this campaign, I have a tremendous admiration and respect for your strengths, your talents and you vision. Mostly here I want to say thank you...all of you...and thank you Dr. Paul for being the catalyst which began a movement. We believe in you, too, and we won't worry.

There is no taking this

country back without a physical fight! we either take this now in a brokered convention or obama will be president forever or this country will be bankrupted and financially bowed to china and all other nations while our revolution either fights or dies through genocide...you think obama was bad this time...wait until next term if RP doesnt win...NDAA x 1000 = death

RP's support has essentially

RP's support has essentially doubled since '08. Take that and then consider that another doubling in 4 years would be all it would take to elect a Liberty government at the Federal level.

Of course, RP will not be in it next go around, sadly. But things are changing. Doubling in size every 4 years is a huge growth rate for any significantly different political movement.

Ron Paul is not the end of the Liberty movement. He is the beginning of it.

I was at the 1988 Libertarian Convention...

where Ron Paul first ran for President on the Libertarian ticket. I had previously written the following essay trying to persuade my fellow citizens why they should support Libertarianism. Please read, and comment, and explain to me why these opinions are nutty, outside the pale, and never to be discussed. Please, I am serious. I have been waiting for twenty-six years for someone to explain what is so objectionable about Trust between human beings....

I Trust You
Originally written December 11, 1986

I trust you to be the most competent person to run your own life. I presume you can judge for yourself whether or not you should partake in recreational drugs, gamble with your paycheck, hire a prostitute, or engage in any other personal non-violent activity. If you find that any of these are manageable vacations for you, then no harm is done. If you find instead that vice is becoming your entire lifestyle, then the most important advice that I, or anyone, can give you, is to point out that you, and you alone, are responsible for the consequences of your actions. Vice does not have volition. You do. If you wish to accept the aid of others, who voluntarily offer it, no one can criticize. If, instead, you continue to engage in self-destructive activities, until you forfeit your life, I will grieve for the lost opportunity of your life, while recognizing that you had to be free to make your own mistakes. To assume that the mere offer of temptation is the same as offering aggression implies that you cannot be expected to behave responsibly in the face of such temptation. That may be your honest self-assessment, but it will never be my presumption about you. Would you want it to be?

I believe you can choose what charities are worthy of support by your own moral standards. If one person would aid an unwed mother by offering her a subsidized abortion, while another would offer to adopt her child, who has the right to insist that only one or the other is acceptable – that support for the one standard of compassion will be compelled upon everyone, while the other is criminalized. You, and you alone, know how much you can afford to share with others after seeing to your own needs, and the needs of your family. Further, you, and you alone, know best how you can help. Do you really believe that love can be scaled up in size by coercive charities? Is the value of charity in the wealth that is given, or in the thought with which the wealth is given? Are you only concerned with the food in a man’s belly without a second thought about his soul? Can you only offer the poor the affection and esteem one would give farm animals? Does coercive love beget genuine compassion, or its antithesis, apathy and guilt? Is not government charity to voluntary charity as rape is to consensual sex? Do you really believe that institutionalizing government in the role of Robin Hood is a good idea? Robin Hood was a thief! But, at least, he was a thief because he had to be. There was no private property in King Richard’s England because ALL property was owned in the King’s name alone! And remember, Robin Hood’s enemy was the Sheriff of Nottingham,… THE GOVERNMENT! You and I would have been called serfs back then. Why, in the name of love, would anyone want to bring that life back? Do you regard others as only fit to live as serfs? Is that all you want out of life for yourself and your family? Is the only measure of charity you care to be tested upon to be your willingness to vote yourself (and everyone else) higher taxes? What are you saying you believe about yourself?

Why shouldn’t everyone be free to accept any job offer at whatever wage is mutually agreeable between employee and employer? Should you not be presumed competent to decide for yourself what wage is fair? Is it exploitation to be offered a low wage, or is it exploitation to be compelled to accept no wage rather than a low one? Is the need for pride in gainful employment something only known by adults between the ages of eighteen and sixty five, or is productive activity something sought by us all, regardless of age, sex, disability, or the paternalistic good intentions of strangers?

I trust that you know best what is a fair business risk for you to assume. I certainly trust your economic rationality when looking out for your own self-interest more than I would trust that of an anonymous government bureaucrat. Am I wrong for placing such trust in you?

Should others tell you what standard of morality you will hold? Should strangers forcibly take your children and teach them what the strangers choose to teach? Not what you choose, but what strangers choose? Strangers do, you know. Should others tell you how many children you may have? Why not? Why do you object to one and not the other? What inalienable right do you invoke in one instance that does not apply in all instances?

I trust you to be willing to fight to defend yourself and whatever else you value as much as you value your life. I trust you not to fight in unjust causes. When someone resists the draft in America and another in Russia, is one a coward and the other brave? The greatest distrust that all reasonable people seem to have is the distrust of using force themselves. This is a natural and wholesome thing. But self-defense is also necessary. I am not stupid or willfully naïve. I am not suggesting that we all become Pollyannas and not defend ourselves from evil people. So long as people have free will, there will always be evil. No generation of men will be without it, ever. But how to administer the force necessary for self-defense? Vigilantism? Voluntary committees of citizens organized to suppress and punish crime when the processes of law appear inadequate? And without government, there can be no law, right? Government is law, isn’t it? What happens when mistakes are made? Doesn’t vigilantism mean lynch mobs in practice, inevitably bringing with it constant fear and mutual suspicion for everybody as a consequence?

So then, in honest self-doubt, reasonable men said, “Let us put force in one place, and then guard it by keeping it in one place. Let us call this place, Government.” But are we really safer for creating a monopoly and institutionalizing force? Could any mob be as dangerous as a society in which people say, I am not responsible, the government is!?

As bad as the abuse of force can be, what is far worse is the abdication of self-responsibility. Any time that force is used, these principles must be invoked to weigh the justice of the action:
1. Force may only be used in response to force. Need, compassion, utopia, or fine dreams are not sufficient reasons.
2. Force may only be used against an aggressor and not innocent bystanders. It is not enough for society to claim that it needs to regard everyone as guilty until proven innocent (which is precisely the premise of all regulatory government). It is not enough to be fair by leveling everyone with equal injustice (which is the method of all compassionate socialism).
3. Force should only be used to gain restitution and not vengeance from aggressors. How can the world be other than impoverished when it tries to reduce criminals to the same sorry state as their forgotten victims? How long can criminals continue their self-denial of responsibility if they are required to repair the damage they are responsible for inflicting?

We must always remember that it is not the pomp and ceremony of government that make it just. Justice does not lay in government, nor in law, but in principle alone. Force is not (nor can it ever be) a creative power. Force is impotent to make anything. Force, at best, can only protect creative processes. It can never be a substitute for the source of all productivity, the sovereign individual mind.

In all argument concerning the integrity of others, and ourselves, trust is an axiom, and it’s mine. But ultimately, trust is not something that I can prove for you. Trusting in yourself first, and then in others, is something that only you can do. I cannot do it for you. Neither can the government, or your parents, or even God. Do you hesitate because you want an omnipotent guarantee of your continued existence? If you are trying to insure your survival by chaining my life to your welfare, are you not saying, in effect, that you trust me to keep you alive because you do not trust yourself? What does this do to enhance your celebration of life? What does this do for me? What does this teach our children? Do you hesitate to trust because you believe that justice requires that no innocent individuals suffer through no fault of their own? Then there will be no end to your mistrust and suspicions because reality is indifferent to your beliefs about justice. There will always be misfortune and pain in the world. Utopia is not an option. It never was, and it never will be. Is it not probable that the maximum expression of good must always become evil, and that the minimum expression of evil is our best attainable good?

The reason the Soviet state continues in power is that the Soviet citizen is sincerely frightened of others having more liberty. They know that their government is brutal, but they also know (that is, believe) it is better than their best-expected alternatives. Be very careful when you consider what you know. The German people, for centuries, had been among the most tolerant of the Jews, but even they could be loyal and obedient when told that all virtue is synonymous with obedience to authority. When people act only within the moral alternatives that others give them, they then make horror inevitable! The state is not our parent. Whether one is talking about Mother Russia, or the German Fatherland, or Uncle Sam, one is talking nonsense. Grow up, and be responsible for your own life, and for your own chosen values. You must not remain a child forever while leaving your own children with the debt of your folly.

I trust you to be the most competent person to run your own life. I am trusting my life on that fact. I am trusting your life to that fact. What other basis for social intercourse would you substitute? Why would you want to prove me wrong? When you believe that your fellow man is only fit for human society when living under the constant threat of initiatory force, aren’t you necessarily implying that he is just a stupid, incompetent, irresponsible, nigger slave, who is kept within bounds only by his fear of the whip and chain! Or is it that you are a willing slave whose real ambition is not freedom, but to own slaves of your own?

I am sorry, if I offend you. But the most powerful way to elicit responsible and productive effort in you is to let you know that that is the only way I ever intend to deal with you. I know you are capable of living up to my expectations. Why do you doubt yourself? I trust you. Rather than considering myself a Pollyanna, I believe that only by such trust can there be any sound hope for a better world and a brighter future. Trust is not something that large anonymous institutions can give to you by fiat. At first meeting, it is a premise between two individuals. Later, trust is usually recognized as deserved. When trust of someone is not deserved, act accordingly. But putting everyone in prison, gilded or otherwise, is not a way to build trust, either in yourself, in others, or in reality. I think you deserve better. I know I do. And most important of all, what kind of world do we want our children to inherit?

Yours in Liberty,
David R. Hunt
-- End of Essay --

Today's votes demonstate that the Republican Party's Primary voters do not value liberty as much as the illusion of state given security. Voters don't believe in magic,... they just believe in government. I am afraid that those my age are cannibals who feel safer in a world where we are taken care of because everyone is communally owed by everyone else. Where plutocrats can create wealth out of thin air without it being regarded as theft because ...?

I was born NT (http://www.dailypaul.com/183947/knowledge-of-psychological-d...) Self testing by Daily Paul readers shows than some 70% of us are NT personalities, which is only true of some 5% of the general population. Basically, we're born distrusting any authority higher than our own sovereign wills, while the 45% of the population, who are SJs, look to authority figures to think for them.

Also check out "The Declaration of Liberty" for a moment's thoughtful reflection on the world today.
(http://www.dailypaul.com/207362/the-declaration-of-liberty)

I am sorry to say, but Liberty will win only after all the alternatives have been repeatedly tried and failed. If someone said you could go to heaven, and you didn't have to die first, wouldn't you at least hope they were telling the truth? American today is a patient with a broken bone that has set wrong. The doctor needs to break the bone again, in order to reset it. The quacks are saying their snake oil will work without the pain of submitting to a painful cure. Are we talking about resisting brainwashing or courage to face the truth?

Fraud is happening

I do not believe for a minute Ron Paul is not winning most of these in landslides ... I am convinced it's rigged just like wrestling and boxing.

Just keep trucking along we will win in the end.

Even the states where the

Even the states where the campaign's internal polling confirmed the results were accurate?

Iv'e mentioned it many times...

It happened to me in 2008 primary when I voted for Ron. I saw it with my own eyes! The ticker tape said "unvoted ballot". I knew from that day the machines were all set up to what the "establishment" wanted. In the general election, it did it again, but this time it said "defective ballot". I voted for Chuck Baldwin in the general. It doesn't matter to the establishment if they get back Obama or Romney, they both answer to the same people. Caucus states are different. We see what happens there! Votes "mysteriously" disappear! I don't know how to explain it to you, but they already have planned who will be in office. We are just little pawns to them! However, counted or trashed, we vote because it still gives us a voice & they know we were there! Our voice is getting louder & Paul talks about what we already believed! He is our voice, and we must continue the message. If he can sacrifice what he does for his age, we can continue the message and make it grow!

I think

we often lose sight of the rate of progress (which is still very good) but people are very slow to wake up. Let's face it, these are the same people who say "my kid wouldn't do that", "I'm not a bad driver", "I'm not fat", "I should have it payed off soon", etc, etc, etc. These people are slow to realize the truth because it hurts their eyes to look directly at it. What you're seeing right now is reality. The resistance to our ideas is real, the vote fraud is real, the distortion by the media is real but honestly none of it matters because it's all just a manifestation of the fact that they aren't ready yet. It is working, but we need to keep it going and continue to push on.

"Endless money forms the sinews of war." - Cicero, www.freedomshift.blogspot.com

So many of us feel this way.

So many of us feel this way. Can you imagine if the media had just offered 10% of the coverage they did the others how much bigger Paul's numbers would have been. I am convinced more than ever that the MSM is nothing but a bunch of CIA and communist hell bent on dumbing down Americans and destroying it from the inside out....no conspiracy theory!

"...the most memorable concern of mankind
is the guts it takes to
face the sunlight again."-Charles Bukowski

It's time

To get ready for write-in votes in November. What a horrible Super Tuesday. I wish there was somehow that we could bring Paul's message to a third-party, national effort. Might take years to bring it make it serious to the masses, but it would be fun to try.

Take heart.

The movement is only taking hold just now.

I mean...;look at me....McCain voter....never paid attention to Dr. Paul until about 5 or 6 months ago.

After that i am TOAST.

I will vote for no one else!

Ron Paul 2012.

I am also a new Ron Paul

I am also a new Ron Paul supporter. I've only been around for a few months, but I've written over 60 articles about Ron Paul and became a WA state delegate on Sat.

No one but President Paul 2012!

This is really irritating how

This is really irritating how Americans see Santorum as this all-righteous Christian. It's very sad to see how they are fed misinformation and take it at face value. The revolution is not only about exposing the Fed, ending the wars, cutting spending, etc. -- it's an INFORMATION revolution and we need push harder now than ever before.

BINGO! someone is fully awake!!

the tricky thing is not loosing your sh#t trying to wake up everyone else.
;-)

lol

"the tricky thing is not loosing your sh#t trying to wake up everyone else."

That is no joke!! I continue to hang by a thread!

"I have found that being rich is not about having the most but about needing the least"

I know, it sucks. But

I know, it sucks. But remember back one year ago, Paul was 50/50 on even running again. We've come along way. We have atleast doubled if not tripled our numbers from 2008. Too many people still get there info from the tele right now. Btw, I truly believe young people getting more info from the net than old people has the most impact on why we Paul does so much better with younger voters.

"Where liberty is, there is my country." -Benjamin Franklin

Sorry, but that kind of talk does me no good.

POS like DICK Santorum come along & get HUGE support, almost instantly. Same for Cain the lame. That liar Gingrinch shouldn't even breathe the word election & he gets more than Ron.

If I could easily move out of this country, my bags would be packed.

Is it not clear yet that our

Is it not clear yet that our country and it's electoral process has been dead for decades now?? The establishment has overplayed their hand. How can a man who is 2nd in overall fundraising, raised 3X as much money from active duty military personnel than all the other R candidates plus Obama combined, has the largest (by thousands) and rowdiest crowds at his rallies, and whose volunteers are the only ones that can be seen not win one state??

BECAUSE. THEY. DON'T. WANT. HIM. TO.

THEY OWN THIS PLACE AND YOU ARE THEIR SLAVE.

elections don't happen anymore. It's time to arrest the bankers and have open trials. Call me when you're ready.

Bingo

Here is someone that doesn't have one ounce of denial left. It's long overdue that the Bankers were run out of town.

This is not going to change trying to gain traction working within their rigged system. I have resigned myself to just supporting Ron to stay on the road and to educate the masses for as long as he is willing. When he decides he wants to walk away and spend what life he has left with his family in Peace. So be it!! He has certainly earned every bit of it.

“Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it’s realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy.”
― Ron Paul

My inner rage monkey has

My inner rage monkey has lapsed into a sad pathetic monkey sitting in the corner, picking grass, and rocking back and forth.

I'm so frustrated and upset I swear I'm about to break.

you know...I sort of did in '08.

I really thought that it was so obvious that people would WANT to vote for Ron Paul. I couldn't get over the fact that I hadn't personally saved the world via my campaigning for Ron Paul. I was everywhere. Involved in everything. Immersed in Ron Paul and sorta lost the thread to the "real world" that most people live in. (which all of us here know why THE MATRIX is such a great movie).

Just remember that more people in the US watch Dancing with the Stars than vote in any election. NICE HUH? Don't worry. Just start researching your options. Get more involved at the local level if you've got it in you. Move to another country - maybe? Hatch plans for SHTF. Regardless. The sun will rise tomorrow and life will go on. Spend time outside and just be thankful that you are here experiencing this historic time in Earth's history. How exciting!
