[I think] Mitt Romney will offer Ron Paul Treasury Secretary...

Is this enough? Would you vote for Romney if you knew Ron Paul would be his Treasury Secretary?

Here's why it is likely to happen:

in exchange for what? An endorsement? I don't see that happening, even if Mitt publicly declared that he is now 100% committed to following the Constitution that'd just be more promises... Promises ain't what we need, words are wind. If Mitt really has a change of heart he'd endorse Paul and offer to run as Paul's VP. That would be a concrete action that would actually be worth something...

What is becoming blatantly apparent is, Ron Paul is the clear winner and all these gatherings prove it. The slime stream media whore liars and dis-/mis-information propagandists have done all they can to promote the false front of romney's popularity. It is all just another smoke and mirrors presentation like the man behind the curtain running the Wizard scam on Dorthy. Everyone sees and knows that Ron Paul is the clear winner and America's clear and obvious choice for president.

See the facebook numbers compared on this screen shot:


See the numbers here in the gatherings. If romney is so popular and the "clear" winner, where are all his supporters?


The propaganda false fronts and fake numbers produced by the vote rigging machines and perpetuated fraud is barely holding up as the corrupted old guard gop is slowing being uncovered as the slimy dirty deeds done dirt cheap cheaters they are, and being replaced with real honest Rule of Law conservative small govt constitutional republicans.

And we see the Chicken Noodle Media continue the hoax of presenting a pig with lip stick. Pretty easy to do when the same globalists that support romney own all the media. The populace is so gullible, they swallow the lies and dis/mis-information hook, line, and sinker. The truth is empowering. Lies are disempowering.

They do not have the numbers of people and they know it, yet the scam to portend willard romney as the "clear" winner hoax goes on. Not unnoticed by the masses of awakening Americans, this sorry scam is so easy to see and very in the faces of a growing angry population that is tired of these lies and deceptions.

No more Chicken Noodle Media propaganda and hoaxes!


I think Romney

Is much more likely to squat and shix monkeys than he is to let Ron Paul near any kind of cabinet position.

I think RP will tell him

I think RP will tell him where to go

Treasury Secretary or not,

Treasury Secretary or not, Dr. Paul would still need to endorse Romney in order to have a chance of securing my vote. Romney is going to need to EARN it.


So your a Progressive for Romney?

I will never vote for this incumbent.

I will never vote for Mitt, Rick, Newt, Michelle,...

You want Dr. Paul to take orders from Mitt?

I don't.

Free includes debt-free!

That would be interesting

one day this order, the next day that order...wtf. Worst kind of leader - one from whom you don't get clear direction.

And mitt's handlers would work to discredit Paul

bad all around

Free includes debt-free!

I too would Rather just see him retire.

it is not like he has not done enough for us.
We need to start an annual Liberty festival in his honor.


How about we just use the Fourth of July?

A day to rededicate ourselves to liberty and building a land of the free.

Free includes debt-free!

and [I think]...

No matter what happens, Paulites will vote for Ron Paul in November. Even if they have to write-in his name.

And Ron Paul should offer Romney to be Sec. of Education

and then totally de-fund that dept.

Nice one!

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

I was going to say something

I was going to say something like Ron Paul should offer Mitt the position of "Water Boy", but your suggestion is better.

BS and So what...

Sorry for the negativity, but I am tired of these posts regarding what Romney will do...It is illegal to offer posts prior to your own election although "speculation" is always a possiblity. In any case, so what I don't think he would take it anyhow.

I am looking forward to what the Romney campaign suggests will already be an embarassing fact at the convention. Fact, we are more than they know. Fact, nothing is written in stone at this point, so stop these ridiculous posts. About as useful as a turd in the punchbowl.

I agree

go back to the romney camp


Why would RP take a minority post as an officer on a sinking ship? You think the Treasury Secretary has any independence and sway? In terms of hard money vs fiat money, Keynsianism vs Austrian economics? No. They are just a figurehead in one of many puppet posts

"I am Troll fighter, number one"



Please move to Off Topic

Garbage like this cluttering the active forum topics is unbelievable.

November 6th 2012 I voted for Dr.Ron Paul
"We must remember, elections are short-term efforts. Revolutions are long-term projects." ~ Ron Paul

Ain't gonna happen.

Ain't gonna happen.

Won't happen but I'd support

Won't happen but I'd support it if RP had the power to propose the budget.

Team Mitt can only wish they could make Ron Paul such an offer

We'll see who's offering terms in August!!!

Down voted to create an all-time record on the DP!


Another Thank You

You have more than broke the tie. This post is now the number one most hated post in the history of the Daily Paul.

A true sign that all is not well with the establishment

is when you have multiple trolls on site spreading defeatist ideas. How many Paul trolls are lurking about in "Tricky Mitt's" sites? I find it absolutely hysterical that they are so ignorant of our cause that they would even dream of dissuading even one of us from our purpose. There is no such thing as an ex Paul supporter,wake up and dive in, the waters of freedom and liberty are fine. If you choose not to, Britain and Israel would surely welcome you. Go find your freedoms there and get out of the way of the serious patriots amongst us.

There are no politicians or bankers in foxholes.

I agree. Defeatism is a bunch of BS.

And you are correct. There is no such thing as an ex-Paul supporter.

The defeatist attitude....(some would use the euphimism "realist attitude')...helps define the reality...of future defeat.

If one has already resigned in defeat...and resigned to accepting half a sandwich...then half a sandwich is all one gets...or deserves.


Reagan Bush Bush Dole Bush Bush McCain that is my sorry ass presidential voting record and I am sorry the buck stops here...not this year...not EVER...will I vote again for some 'compromise' 'consensus' Establishment ticket.

The only way I would is you are going to have to use my cold lifeless body and finger to press the voting button.

It is Ron Paul or NO ONE AT ALL in 2012.

I'd like to thank everyone...

This post is now tied for the lead as the most unpopular post in Daily Paul history.

I just fixed that

it should not be the most unpopular of all :-)


Thanks Jefferson. Let the record show that you are the man who put it over the top.

If you really want to know

If you really want to know what would happen if Dr. Paul accepted a cabinet position inside Romney's administration, send Cathrine Austin Fitts an email and ask her... You'd get a great answer!

Hasn't anyone heard the

Hasn't anyone heard the expression, "Friends close but enemies nearer...."?

Romney and his people would bring Dr.Paul in, control him, and then send him packing after a couple years.

EVERY PRESIDENT DOES THIS! Obama did it, Bush did it, they all have one or two that they don't agree with that they need to bring in for votes and other reasons.

Unless it's a VP slot, Secretary of State, or Defense Secretay it doesn't mean squat! The only reason Treasury Secretary has been polarized over the past few years is because of the crisis. The Treasury is controlled by the Fed, not the other way around.

Let me break it down for you.

I wrote this post to demonstrate that the best that Ron Paul can expect from pursuing this delegate strategy is totally absurd. The fact that virtually everyone here agrees that Treasury Secretary is unacceptable demonstrates that this delegate strategy is for naught unless you are one of a handful of fully delusional idiots who thinks that this strategy will actually get him the nomination.

Time to demand that the campaign put his name on the general election before the GOP convention when it will be too late...here is the calendar:

I promise to publicly declare that I was wrong and the campaign was right if Ron Paul finishes first on any ballot at the convention in August, even if he finishes first by a plurality rather than a majority.

Furthermore, I challenge anyone here to declare with a straight face that he will finish first in the delegate count at the convention. Any takers?

Sorry to be mean about it but we are edging ever near a point of no return. A write-in campaign will not win in the general election. There is only one way for him to win: get his name on the general election ballot: get his name and that of a progressive running mate on the ballot in every state in the nation before the deadlines referred to in the link above make that impossible.
