Time to TAKE ROMNEY DOWN once and for all!

What with Mitt Romney's juggernaut-like progress toward attaining 1144 delegates, and the knowledge that a contested convention won't be possible if he gets that many, I think we need a new strategy....we need to gather as much ammo and opposition against Romney and his campaign as we possibly can.

Create memes and spread them on Facebook (even share them with your Santorum-supporting friends, with whom you share a dislike of Romney), call media outlets, whatever it takes. Try to find the smoking gun; something that will make Republicans in future states extremely unlikely to vote for him, and something that will make those who already have voted for him regret doing so. As the ultimate insider, there has to be a scandal somewhere in this man's past that people don't know about yet, but should.

Another reason I think this is because Santorum would be very easy for Paul to beat head-to-head, whereas Romney would be much harder to beat in a two-man race (Virginia being a stark example). Finally, delegates already committed to Romney would be more likely to switch to Paul (anecdotal evidence on here suggesting that Romney supporters are the easiest to win over to our side) should Romney drop out or suffer a major scandal.

Romney may seem to be almost unstoppable right now, but I think we should try to stop him and should try to do it before Tampa, rather than waiting until he waltzes into the convention with 1100 delegates and hoping we can beat him then. There's a lot of stuff that seems unsavory about Romney and his team, that just a little bit of Breitbart or O'Keefe-style investigative journal could uncover. For instance, just to get the ball rolling:

-Walid Phares, Romney's "counterterrorism" and foreign policy advisor may actually be a terrorist himself: http://www.salon.com/2011/10/07/romneys_scary_middle_east_ad...

-Says "you can't learn" what makes America great from constitutional law:

-Opposes 2nd Amendment freedoms:

I'm sure there's a whole lot more out there waiting for those who have the time and energy to dig a whole lot deeper.

The Etch-A-Sketch comment portends doom for Romney

Romney will lose just based on the Etch A Sketch comment alone. Remember John Kerry's "I voted for the war before I voted against it" comment? The Etch A Sketch comment will be far more damaging.

From Chicago Sun Times:

"The episode, likely to dog Romney in the coming days, began when adviser Eric Fehrnstrom was asked on CNN if the extended primary fight might force Romney so far to the right that it would hurt him with moderate voters in the fall."

Fehrnstrom responded: “I think you hit a reset button for the fall campaign. Everything changes. It’s almost like an Etch A Sketch. You can kind of shake it up and restart all over again.”

A Good Start

Would be "The Romney Book"..a 200 page document from John McCain's 2008 campaign,aimed specifically at Romney. Appears useful..

How about this one?

I suggest you have one side with a thumbs down picture

Nice gif, but having the flip side thumbs up and the flop side thumbs down might make more of a statement.

It's too late. It's too late

It's too late. It's too late :-(

Woah Woah Woah hold up

Im all for taking down Romney but leave the anti-mormon stuff out of it.

Please remove the false and fallacious and down right ignorant link
"-could Brigham young be Mitt Romney's 'Jeremiah Wright'"

The guy in the video clearly does not know what he's talking about and has an obvious axe to grind against mormons. There's plenty of other things we can use to bring romney down without demonizing his religion of which many a Ron Paul supporter belongs to and which many of his supporters we're trying to flip belong to as well. It's not helpful.

Okay

Sorry...I got a little bit carried away in my enthusiasm to find anything usable against Romney, but you're right, it's best not to throw the baby out with the bathwater.

Join the Music Bomb! Be sure to invite all your friends so we can get Ron Paul's name to the top of the charts AND raise a lot of money for his campaign at the same time!

Yeah, if we are going to show

Yeah, if we are going to show the true colours of Mitt Romney, lets do it on his policies.

Leave the rest for Bill Maher.

Operation Take Down in effect.

The Ron Paul twitter presence has been doing this. We've all started to take him down with our tweets. Using hash tags and trends to inform the electorate this man is nothing more than a puppet in a suit being financed by Goldman&Sachs.

I've been telling my 'conservative' friends here if you love Obama vote for Mitt Romney, and they don't like that one bit. They both have the same policies (healthcare), both big government. Anyway, it's been helpful showing Obama = Romney.

-----------------------------------------------

Mitt Romney's Bain baggage gets heavier by the day....the tip of Bain Capital has revealed an iceburg that will destroy his campaign.

It's very simple - convey this message. Let conservatives KNOW that Mitt Romney OWNS talk radio and has them by the cajones.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

Very important fact!

Dr Paul Has...

No need to dish dirt. Dr. Paul has produced enough facts to discredit each of the Three Stooges by now. The problem isn't that we haven't already taken these steps. The problem is that Americans aren't paying attention or they're not voting on the issues.

Mass hypnosis.

That is how Romney became the front runner, and that is the only thing that will stop him now. Mass hypnosis is being used against the people all the time, in ways gross and subtle.

This is the article that got my posting privileges revoked:
http://bklim.newsvine.com/_news/2013/05/12/18212165-dr-stan-...

How so?

what are the subtle ways that mass hypnosis has been used to make him the frontrunner?

he also has been the frontrunner bec media and others prop up Romney by tearing down his conservtive rivals while not mentioning the specific offenses romeny committed. so when you tear someone down, people get a bad taste in their mouth about that candidate and end up turning towards the one not torn down but kept intact. people have not matured enough to realize they should find out on thier own about the candidate not torn down but protected by media - romney. but they don't do so.

and none of romney's rival have really ever tried to attack romney during a debate.

media is covering romney 24/7 so his image is imprinted in people's mind along with code words like electability.

people can move past hypnosis, but have chosen not to do so or don't know how or believe they are too smart for media tactics but get sucked right into it like everyonelse.

Flip=flopping

There is youtube of his flip-flop on issues - spread those! There are some issues relative to Mormon faith and race, but I don't know if he can be identified with that faction of Mormons - I don't know if there are factions either.

i remember

not so long ago there was a story of wrong doing by his administration while he was governer. Apparently files were destroyed. Does anyone else remember this? I'll have to research when i have time.

We have to pull a few million on this.

The only way we can counter romneys ad campaign is to have a better one..

The couch potatoes are the people voting for him

What a HILARIOUS thing to say

What a HILARIOUS thing to say when it is Ron Paulians who are mostly unemployed or who delvier SANDWICHES for a living (In other words...that don't contribute to society AT ALL) Whereas the majority of ROmney supporters have ACTUAL jobs that matter to the world and that would be missed.

Who is more likely to be a couch potato? The one who knows that his life is worthless (you) or hte oe who knows he contributes to society?

What A Bizarre Comment

The real question is who is more likely to be a semi-literate hack for a bought and paid for political ringer hired to lose to Obama.

And in case you don't know, Romney made his millions as a corporate vulture/scavenger, dismembering the carcasses of companies solely for profit and for the production of nothing else.

We care about liberty and freedom. What do you stand for?

Really Troll

First I own my own business and you?

I work about 80 hours per week and about 15 of that is promoting Ron Paul and working on another Ron Paul Project.

Second I was a breakfast with DR Paul a few weeks ago and there were people from every spectrum Rich Poor old and Young.

Almost all of my clients are private business owners who support Ron Paul.

Maybe more Romney Supporters work full time but they are less informed about what is really going on.

I would rather have 2 million Ron Paul Supporters donating $5 per week than 10 thousand rich sheeple who will not look into what is really going on

Scared much?

Are you really so afraid that a few unemployed and sandwich delivering Ron Paul supporters will have such a detrimental effect on your candidate that you spend precious time making such a comment on the DailyPaul?
The fact that you are here, and taking the time to make derogatory comments shows us all this is the EXACTLY the tactic we should employ.

Do us all a favor, and in the midst of your next rage induced rant on here, take a moment to READ what you wrote. It is far too easy to identify trolls due their lack of spelling and infantile grammar.

Oh, and for the record, every job has significance. If it didn't, it wouldn't exist in a free market.

"Always vote your principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost." -John Quincy Adams.

Five Issues

1. Why is Goldman Sachs donating to your campaign? Why, Governor? Explain to us why they would do this?

2. Wants to keep the Federal Reserve as is.

3. Draft dodging.

4. Why haven't your sons enlisted? Will you promise to put your youngest son on the front lines in Syria or Iran?

5. Support of TARP bailouts. Indicates not only corruption but also a lack of understanding of Austrian economics, the school of economics that has been proven right time and again.

Draft dodging is neither a crime nor a disgrace. Like "cheating" death or "cheating" on your taxes, it can be an honorable act of self preservation. Slick Willard's crime is not staying out of the military (I wish more would follow that particular lead) but promoting more unnecessary and illegal international imbroglii. The Good Doctor and I both served in the Air Force (he was drafted, I volunteered) and we agree that conscription is slavery.

Nor is the father of sons their owner, and he therefore has no more right to send his sons to foreign misadventures than he has to send mine.

These would be GREAT...to make YOU look stupid. I think Michael Moore proved how fuckiung stupid it is to suggest that a politician should be able ot FORCE their kid to join the military. As for TARP...well...let me explain this to you, little ignorant child...without TARP, the defecitg would be HIGHER than it is now. Becuase the bailouts were paid back WITH interest already.

Since you are obviously a fucking WORTHLESS embarrassment to your family, let me explain...most government project...yes...even ones that Grampa Simpson Ron
Paul has votes yes on...are not expected to pay for themselves in 25-30 YEARTS. The bailouts were paid back in less than TWO.

Trolol

yeah, the whole picketing the

yeah, the whole picketing the sit-in demonstrations while he was attending Stanford left a very sour impression in my mind about Romney, considering that he was exempt from the draft. Seemed like he was more concerned about being able to attend his classes then the lives that his fellow students were about to put on the line.

http://stanfordreview.org/article/mitt-romney-at-stanford-in...

No way in hell I'd ever want a leader like that.

I agree - I have a library of 40 to 50

anti Romney topics and perhaps 30 peripheral issues.
I was putting it all together when a dumbass named Clint interupted me.
I will get on it again.

First subject is socialist Romneycare.
50% paid for by non Ma tax payers and stll underfunded.
Do the people in XXXXXX like paying other people's bills? (fill in State).

Second subject is Romney's record as Gov. 47th out of 50.
65% disapproval rating on leaving.

He's as clean as a whistle....Though something must be done...

He is actively working to deceive Paul campaign staff and even Gingrich campaign staff, with his silver-tongue and this is terrible.

We need to keep these people as figure heads of the R3volution no matter what, not be sucked up into a Romney machine.
It is high time to end this.

If Paul is reluctant to criticize, than do his job for him and find everything that would stick. His health care support with Bain Capital, that's a real good start....

Find what sticks, and put it all over the media & alternative media for as long as possible. Period. Take the gloves off.
