I completely AGREE!

We should welcome ALL Santorum supporters, and Romney supporters, and ALL others.., maybe ESPECIALLY past Obama supporters.
Ron Paul is the only decent man in this, so let's show them all some decency, too.

We had SOME proof, but RNC does not care about Rules n Laws- they just break and then change 'em to suit whomever (not PAUL).

Let Bygones bey Bygones

Granted, there has been some minor hostilities towards each other in support of our rival candidates. Let not any of us take this to heart, it's really not much different than talking smack to my friends during a card game. I don't think an apology is necessary, nor is any grudge justified.

Supporters of both candidates battle the ugly giant known as goldmann sachs, who support both Romeny and Obama. Yes, the "evil" banking cartel which has usurped power in our country and has so much influence on the national media to get their way. Both Santorum and Paul people are the one's wise enough to see the outrage of this and make a stand.

It's unfortunate that Santorum has dropped, with regards to the brokered convention. Even more unfortunate and upsetting is that Santorum's drop from the race is associated with the health of his child. All rhetoric aside, lets all wish Rick the best and give him credit for having done so well. Definately give Santorum folks the credit they deserve in standing against the machine as we have also done.

Any Santorum supporter wanting to learn more about Paul is more than welcomed by me. Keep in mind, it was only weeks ago that I discovered the dailypaul. I am officially a Paul supporter now and only wish I had learned the truth about our candidate earlier, and that I had been able to do more to help the cause. The need to stop Romeny and Obama, the banker boys....is paramount.

Restore America!! We the People!!

I think Santorum was returning to be a true Republican....

I think Santorum got used by Democrats so much he was tired of it, and is returning to being a real Republican not a lying democratic friend of Pelosi.

And so he stands to block Romney by whatever means necessary - Romney is a Democrat and everyone saw him on stage, and I think with the roots returning here Santorum & Paul will stand against it.

And I doubt Santorum will give anymore lip service to Obama or Romney that ship has sailed.

It is time for all Republicans to *cease* doing any favors for the Democrats, infiltrators or otherwise, and START FIGHTING THEM TO GET OUR GOVERNMENT BACK TO CONSTITUTIONAL SIZE ONCE & FOR ALL!!

The Democrats will never concede that the Federal Government needs to get smaller, but Republicans can finally get their guts back & force the issue so we can put a stop to treason & chase those cowards back into the Dems.

I'll gladly take Santorum's

I'll gladly take Santorum's voters. Welcome, but no hitting the snooze button around here. But I can't lie, I'm thrilled he is out. The guy is just plain scary... I don't think anybody's views could be more contradicting to RP's. And he called our guy "dangerous?"...

welcome

Welcome, Santorum supporters!

As noted all around the Daily Paul website (several months ago as well), we all have compassion for Bella and hope & pray that her health improves quickly. Her father's political perspective in no way changes our sympathy for the family situation.

My first thought to try to influence you to become a Ron Paul supporter is to remind you that Ron Paul has consistently polled as being TIED or even WINNING the vote against Obama.
Ron Paul has strong support from Independents & Youth, and if Romney were to be the nominee instead of Ron Paul, their votes would switch over to Obama (not Romney) in a national election.

Also, in the unlikely event Romney were to win against Obama, what would be the difference? Romney's record shows he is a liberal, a statist, a socialist ... just like Obama.

A Romney presidency would mirror an Obama presidency.

And Romney is no friend of "we the people", but rather he is supported by billion-dollar corporations (& bailout recipients) such as Goldman Sachs & JP Morgan - the SAME ones supporting Obama.

The only true conservative in the race is Ron Paul, champion of Individual Liberty and the US Constitution.

Dear Santorum supporters

I pray that Santorum's daughter will be OK.

I hope now it will be easier to see the light and wake up to the fact that this nation needs Ron Paul.

Welcome.

Hey GOP, where's my vote?

hello to all Santorum supporters

first, I want to say how truly sad I am to hear how Rick's daughter is doing health-wise- no matter who a person is politically, I dont wish physical harm of any kind on anyone- and I pray for a speedily recovery on her part, as well as the strength for the Santorum family to endure through this difficult time.

second, I woud like to welcome all Santorum supportes here at the Daily Paul. There are quite a few similarities between Ron Paul and Rick Santorum, and i personally think that you will be pleasantly surprised by the kindness and the geniuneness of Ron Paul's campaign. I only ask that before making your final decision, you look over Ron Paul's website on his issues as well as his faith, contact some of the people here and ask them about who they are and how they came to support Ron paul, what Ron Paul stands for, what our country was in the beginning, where our country is going, and what we as a people need to do in order to return our country to the way it was originally meant to be.

Do not be afraid to ask questions on here, most of us are harmless, loving, and respectful to one another and dont be intimidated by those who troll on here.

Once again, I welcome you all to the Daily Paul. I hope your enjoy your stay here :)

From reading Santorum's

From reading Santorum's Facebook Page it seems like he may isolate a lot of his supporters if he ends up endorsing Romney. What are the odds of him endorsing Romeny anyway?

What are the odds of him endorsing Romeny

IMV this depends on romnies position at start of convention

IF by then rommie is in high and tight he can offer santorium a choice of good position in the new admin if rommie wins in Nov

sanitorium needs a job that pays well

if we all see that Ron Paul is still highly viable,
which he will be !,
then I think sanitorium will release his delegates to Ron Paul with the respect that Ron Paul will give him some uplift in the new admin appointments which Ron Paul would do as he is so full of grace and humility he doesnt carry any grudge baggage.

what sanitorium will do isnt even in his plan yet
he has to wait it out just like we do
he has looked at the few choices he might have
he cant choose yet as the offers cant be made till August.

and his income source Foster Friess has endorsed rommie so there goes the millions PAC bucks.

`

Only the Binding delegates are in question

Santorum has 281 total delegates (according to the Associated Press count), 84 were won in five states that award their delegates in nonbinding contests . Iowa, Colorado, Minnesota, Washington state and North Dakota had already been free to vote for any candidate at the Convention .

The remaining 197 of Santorum’s delegates, according to the AP tally, are bound to Santorum so unless Santorum explicitly states that he is releasing them (and he may well decide not to) , those delegates are required to vote for Santorum at the Tampa convention this August .

Very easy problem to solve.

Share this link with former Santorum Supporters.

They will NOT vote for Romney. Guaranteed.

Stop feeding the propaganda machine. Turn off your TV.

Don't you mean "Scrotorum"?

Really? What about all of the gross comments about his daughter, calling him "Scrotorum", all of the disgusting pornography comments (not to mention calling his supporters "sheeple") just to name a few, from all of you childish perverted idiots who seem to be the vast majority on this site? One search through the history would show anyone who actually did make their way here what you really think. I can't see them staying very long.

If you were hoping for support coming our way, didn't you think that would come back to bite us?

A legitimate concern.

While the thumbs down indicate some don't appreciate the delivery used by this commenter, their remarks are still very much valid. As some suggest, these immaturities originate from a "minority" of DP users, a statement which just simply isn't true. Immaturity and perversion are interwoven themes in the comments on this site. So it is a valid assertion that a Santorum supporter using this site as a reference for judging if they can fit in with Ron Paul supporters could very easily be turned off to the movement without ever being exposed to Ron Paul's message.

Religious or not, (I'm not, and never have been), you must have to ignore the part of Ron Paul's message about the morality in society, and focus solely on abusing your 1st amendment right to free speech in order to feel just in defending the kind of behavior that, deny it all you want, is all over the place on this site.

Beyond the way in which the Daily Paul history regarding "Frothy" Santorum is likely to turn off his supporters, this pathetic attempt to pander to his support base is also likely to fall on deaf ears. I think just about anyone could see through the blatant ass-kissing going on here. Santorum was nothing like Ron Paul, any one who voted for Santorum's war and fear mongering platform is not going to jump over to Ron's anti-war platform.

I find it hilarious too that people are now trying to push Ron's religious beliefs as a selling point to Santorum supporters, when they mock the concept of morality when one of their own supporters points it out. Oh the beautiful irony & hypocrisy of it all.

Stop feeding the propaganda machine. Turn off your TV.

But in the same way of

But in the same way of reasoning , Santorum supporters DID NOT support Romney's campaign and the Liberal Mainstream Media did make it a clear point that Ron Paul attacked Rick Santorum's platform more then he did Romney or Gingrich . So , a very interesting situation is here in place . Will Santorum supporters ' change ' their prespectives on a candidate like Ron Paul and support him , or will they like us Ron Paul supporters , simply not vote for anyone at all ?

I see most Santorum

I see most Santorum supporters going over to the Romney camp. I think Santorum will probably direct them over there at the convention once he finishes cutting a deal with Romney that is to his liking. Luckily, delegates for Santorum and Supporters of Santorum are 2 very different things. Many Santorum delegates already support Paul, and never actually supported Santorum in the first place, and that is what matters.

Assuming Ron Paul is the nominee, I think Santorum supporters (and most of the GOP) would vote for Ron Paul before voting for Obama, so we're still in excellent shape as far as the general election is concerned, it will just be a matter of defeating the goliath that is Goldman Sa... er... Romney.

As IKilledTheBank has stated, I must agree that the DP won't play any significant role in bringing Santorum voters into the fold, there is just too much "abuse of the 1st amendment" (we'll call it) going on around here that will not sit well with "socially-conservative" Santorum supporters. People can piss and moan about how stupid that is and how much they should embrace the constitutional right to disrespect women and be immature perverts, but I don't see any religious voter making concessions on those "values".

Stop feeding the propaganda machine. Turn off your TV.

Where did you ready ANY gross comments about

Bella Santorum? Everything I've read about that here has been asking for our prayers for the child. We didn't have to support the father to have our natural compassion for the child come out in full force very quickly.

Frankly, I find your comment to be deliberately twisted and highly offensive. The more I think about it, I am beginning to believe you are a Romney troll. YOU are the one who is guilty of stirring up trouble between Santorum and Paul supporters. You'd do well to rethink things before you post here.

Wrong daughter.

I was referring to comments made like this one "I'd like to spread some truth on his daughter."

So I'm a Santorum supporter AND a Romney troll. You guys really need to keep your accusations consistent.

Get a grip " IKilledtheBank "

Dynamics have changed, if you had not noticed. You don't always get what you want, you get what you need. In this case the Santorum supporters are much closer aligned to Ron Paul than Romney or Newt supporters are. The Santorum supporters were not immune to Romney games at caucuses/primaries, so they can hardly be expected to fall lock step behind such antics and side with Romney now. We all have pimples of sorts, I'm sure Santorum supporters think we have a few and visa versa, but in the end what matters is that Romney WILL NOT win against Obama,Ron Paul on the other hand can,so it in the best interest of Santorum and Ron Paul supporters to come together for a greater good and put some differences aside. In life everybody wants perfection, that's not a reality in politics,it's give and take while keeping core principles intact, with Santorum our principles are more intact than with Romney or Newt, I'm sure the Santorum supporters would see it that way from their perspective also. So lets put water under the bridge where it belongs and stop belaboring it to no end, lets move FORWARD. :)

Perspective

We opposed him while he was in the race. He's out now. I doubt you'll hear many disparaging comments about him any more - there isn't a reason for them.

The important thing to remember is that his supporters were just as passionate about their candidate as we are about ours - there are just fewer of them. If those people look at Dr. Paul's platform, I think they'll quickly realize how conservative he really is - and through the hindsight lens of 20/20, they'll come to realize how anti-conservative many of Santorum's policies really are. Sure, he's got the faith and family values, but he is very liberal in fiscal issues.

People here said all those things about Santorum because he was a threat - not because they have any deep hatred for him. The threat has been removed, so now he is just a misguided member of the Republican establishment. He could be a great man, husband and father, and now, that's how he'll be portrayed. He is no longer the enemy, per se.

And, from what I've seen and experienced, the Santorum people have already started reaching out to us locally - hopefully, it is happening everywhere.

I think you missed the point...

of my comment completely.

Santorum's base is mostly very religious. The DP seems to be made up of mostly immature perverts. Not exactly a good combination. Any of them coming here and seeing all the immaturity aren't likely to stay and see what it is all about.

If they come to RP's message locally that is great, but I don't think we'll get them aboard with the DP.

Are you saying that it is okay to say all of those things before because now we can just shake it all up like an etch-a-scetch? I don't think Santorum supporters would feel the same way...

I really don't know what you've been reading here that leads you

to think that our membership "seems to be made up of mostly immature perverts." If you really think that, why did you join DP? Maybe you came to that conclusion because of some of the tasteless remarks made by a few from time to time.

Most of what I read here is thought provoking and encouraging.
I even get a good laugh, as some of the comments are great satire.

As a grandmother, I have noticed some immaturity displayed here and that is to be expected. But, I have also noticed that I am not alone. There are many more here, of all ages, who display intelligence and wisdom and strong faith.

Perhaps you need to read a lot more of the comments on other threads.

Believe it or not?

It started because one of the guys here made a comment about a "Ron Paul girl" being "Hot".

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

I never said anything about

I never said anything about the word "hot". That was someone else. I thought the general atmosphere was immature, as did others apparently. I've seen the same thing on many threads. But I say something and get called a santorum supporter, I have a stick up my a$$, I have my panties in a bunch, etc.

I really have to ask?

Why are you even here? It is clear that you do not advocate A "live and let live" direction of thought. It is also very clear you only approve of "Perfect religious ways". I have a feeling you do not understand or have a clue what freedom truly means.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

I'm just as free to call you

I'm just as free to call you an immature old pervert, so don't tell me I don't know what it means. BTW, I've never been religious.

You just described...

nevermind. You know who you just described, whether or not you intended to.

Sadly, your last sentence applies to far too many Americans. It seems to me that the Dept. of Ed., the MSM and TPTB have done a tremendous job in distorting the American spirit.

AMERICA NEEDS A DOCTOR! (Now, that allusion was intentional.)

There are some here who like

There are some here who like to stir-up trouble . I have come across them many times before , so the best thing to do is " Ignore " them . By continuely confronting them , you continuely encourage them .

Agreed.

It took me a few minutes to realize that's what I was dealing with and will not dignify with further replies.

However, you responded to my reply to ATrueBeliever. I think you meant to respond about the troll.

Again, perspective

I don't agree that the DP is made up of mostly immature perverts. There is a vocal minority in the comments that clearly need lessons in etiquette, but by and large, I feel like its a pretty good group.

The Santorum supporter that comes to DP needs a healthy dose of perspective if they start going through all the old posts about Santorum and reading the comments. Those posts and comments aren't, necessarily, indicative of people's true feelings. When faced with a threat people will lash out and say things that they wouldn't normally say - the anonymity of the internet compounds the issue.

The very religious Santorum supporters that come here need to look no further than http://www.ronpaul2012.com/the-issues/statement-of-faith/ to see that Ron Paul would be an excellent second choice for them, and the people on the DP are a great group of people who are trying their best to get their guy elected.

The off color remarks about Santorum were in the echo chamber of a website that is clearly pro-Ron Paul. If they can change their perspective from that of defending their guy to that of determining which candidate is best to become their new guy, they will be able to read those comments without becoming defensive and with the knowledge that those comments were made with the goal of strengthening our position while weakening the opponent's. Since he's no longer the opponent, the conversation will change - if they can understand that, they will be able to overlook all the negativity towards their former guy.
