Billionaire Promises to Back any Republican Except Ron Paul


Walking self-contradiction and billionaire Sheldon Adelson promises to spend as much as 100 million dollars backing any GOP presidential candidate...

EXCEPT for Ron Paul.

Adelson's logic? "What scares me is the continuation of the socialist-style economy we’ve been experiencing for almost four years. That scares me because the redistribution of wealth is the path to more socialism, and to more of the government controlling people’s lives."

Maybe it's too harsh to call a guy like Adelson a politician buying crook.

Maybe the poor fellow has gone insane.

Ron Paul remains the only candidate for liberty and opposed to redistribution.

Translation: He will only support candidates that kiss Isreal's


And those are all the Republican candidates exept Ron Paul.

100 million to defeat Ron Paul!

I prefer to sum this lump as just that. We know the others are "the same," so does this dude.

I'd say our messenger is worth more than any of the named could afford.

Ron Paul...all the way...baby...2012!


Translation: I want to continue the course of redistribution that I enjoy so much hence my support of Newty, Rick and Mittens.

They tried to bury us, they didn't know we were seeds. -mexican proverb

What he meant to say

Is "I will give any GOP candidate except for Ron Paul 100 million in taxpayer bailout money in order to defeat Ron Paul. In return, I will get back 200 million after the elections." He then meant to say in his screed that followed: "I love socialism because it allows me to use the government to seize other people's money, and I have the money to control and influence government, whereas the average American does not."

This is what I heard...

My Billions of Dollars don't mean jack *$%# to Dr. Paul and
I realize I can not buy him...therefore, I will support any other politican.
Ron Paul has too many morals, too many scruples, and he can not be bought with money.
That's what I'm hearing...and I LOVE IT.

I think he's saying

a vote for Ron Paul is a vote for Obama.

Clearly, another misguided dolt who does not vote on principle but votes for who he thinks can win, within the context of his own limited grasp of politics (as a branch of philosophy) and chosen party affiliation.

The FED!

Adelson what do you think the Fed is doing?!

Redistributing the wealth. Ugh how did this guy get rich again?

"Once you become knowledgeable, you have an obligation to do something about it."- Ron Paul

Adelson exhibits no logic,

only a Zionist vision. Do you think that he really doesn't know that Israel is a purely socialist nation?

Sure he does, he just doesn't care......

I'll call 'em the crooks they are

billionaires feeding at the taxpayer trough maybe legal as well as war profiteering but it still ain't right. They're are afraid of an honest person like Ron Paul getting into office and exposing their cesspool of corruption. Just think how great it would be if free markets were allowed to exist. I know first hand that healthcare would cost 80% less and Medicare would still be running a huge surplus..

Government is supposed to protect our freedom, our property, our privacy, not invade it. Ron Paul 2007

At last a reason to keep fighting

Adelson is a sanctimonious piece of crap. Liberals often do an economic class warfare analysis about the middle class and say, "if people only voted in their economic self-interest they would vote for (healthcare, welfare,progressive taxation)". Well Adelson is the kind of billionaire a liberal would understand. Hes a gambling king so he knows his economic self interest. Newt is the long shot with the big payoff. Now he suspects his long shot lottery is not going to win and he needs to get his small payoff with Santorum or Romney. Why does he not like Ron Paul? Paul just offers equal rights and peace. Adelson has a problem with one or both of those.

His Name Should Be Changed

His name should be changed, based on that unbelievably stupid quote of his, to "Addlebrain."

"May future generations look back on our work and say that these were men and women who, in a moment of great crisis, stood up to their politicians, the opinion makers, and the establishment, and saved their country." Ron Paul

Adelson has a history of rigging the game; Email him :)


At an Adelson casino even the advertised give-aways are rigged.

Next time you go to Las Vegas, stay and play anywhere but at the Venetian.

If you'd like to tell Adelson and his casino what you think, email comments@venetian.com

He's afraid of socialism, so

He's afraid of socialism, so he will only support a socialist? How can someone that dumb become a billionaire? DISHONESTY

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

That's a good question

It's only possible thru the magic of a government controlled economy...which is why Adelson craves more of it.

HA-HA! Because Paul will take away his gravy train!

That is why the rich hate Paul so much. On Rachel Maddow last night she did a piece on how the rich people are coming out in droves to vote for Romney and that is how he has eked out of so many tight races---she forgot to mention election fraud.

Total BS

Adelson couldn't care less about the republican party or the United States.

He'll support the others because THEY will happily send American children in uniform off to die in Israels next wars.

Adeslon cares about Israel. That's it.

It's bastards like this who will cause me NOT to vote...

...for any republican candidate OTHER than Ron Paul.

The more pissed off I get, the more resolve I have not to give the establishment republicans the satisfaction of my vote.

As much as I don't want Obama for 4 more years, I won't play their game.

Ron Paul has been cheated, belittled and marginalized by the GOP, RNC and right-wing media.

I know it to be true.

My only defense is to NOT give the republican candidate my vote.

It's going to be Gary Johnson for me.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

A fool and his money are soon parted.


Adelson nixes Paul because

Adelson nixes Paul because Adelson does not subscribe to RP's take on what the US-Israel relationship should be.

he wants anyone to bomb iran for isreal

adelson is ashamed he wasnt in the isreali defense force. please go live in isreal and send your own kids to fight iran

The Proof is there...

the old energy is fading and those who embrace the old energy believe that they can stop the Ron Paul Revolution. Every second which passes this old energy gets weaker and weaker and the Ron Paul Evolution gets stronger and stronger.

They must think that Ron Paul igoingng away....ha ha ha ....Ron Paul will be around for hundreds of years and the old energy will be remembered like Hitler is.

I somehow recall how they made Jesus into a Super Star.
