Mitt can't crack 70% in his own party even after being declared the "winner"

Stay positive, stay the course, the delegate plan is working.

Party

Mitt can't crack the party and never will..why can't he get it through his thick skull that the republican base doesn't like him or want him.. the high vote count for Romney on Apr 24 is only due to the consistent and obvious rigging of the voting machines. Only in Tampa will the tale be told with the delegate process and I pray Dr. Paul's plan is right on and Romney gets his a$$ handed to him in a basket. Then Dr. Paul can commence on tearing Obama apart and show the American people what their traitorous MSM has been covering up for the last 3 1/2 yrs.

Ron Paul or none at all

Never Loose Faith in Delegate Process

Being or becoming a delegate is best chance by far for Ron Paul getting the nomination. Zombie voters who just vote by being what their told and don't compare the candidates to make intelligent choice. I don't look at the popular votes as too much of a guide any more. I don't trust the voting process anymore seeing how much the establishment "cheats" at the Conventions to prevent anybody but their "anointed" candidate to face Barack Obama in the national elections to lose. Too many Republican voters are in the mindset "anybody but Obama" are willing to vote for a Republican version of Obama. Nothing changes. Ron Paul represent a real choice and real change to bring the country back to it roots by protecting the people Life, Liberty, Property, and the Pursuit of Happiness.

It's mind blowing how little

It's mind blowing how little it takes to garner the support of the average mindless American voter. They will change their vote based simply on a nonsensical "presidential sounding speech" or other devious reasons. One of the main lines I hear from Romney supporters is that he was a "business man" and therefore understands what it takes to be president. What a rediculous statement. And these people say this with a straight face.

I've no wobblies on RP's main strategy

I'm going to take these latest voting "results" with a huge pinch of salt. Clearly the Diebold machines have been throwing their wobblies again. I'll let the tech boys fiddle with the figures that might show this. Meanwhile - RP knew the votes would most likely turn out like this. He has a delegate strategy. I back RP and that strategy all the way to Tampa.

Truthbearer's picture

Tell it to...

I was proud to vote for Traficant in 2010

Traficant is like Ron Paul's abrasive, profane cousin who is the opposite of him but correct nonetheless.

I don't think it was a coincidence that I was born in his Congressional district in the same year he started serving and "woke up" while he was in prison.

Mitt's Not Going to Make It

Title says it all. After an epic shellacking over ObamaCare in 2010, for the GOP to sponsor Romney is folly. He will lose very, very badly and that will be the last we hear of him. He is not a bad guy, probably, but he is a joke candidate.

In some respect, I would actually prefer Obama, at this point. Just get the bankruptcy over with quickly and we can start afresh. I know it sounds un-American - but there is no point to string this out: Obama is the best and fastest and the most certain path to bankruptcy and we should embrace this outcome and move on.

Be careful what you wish for

Remember this people - you don't get to the top of the most powerful nation EVER without being smart. Period. Obama is NOT stupid - him and his people have a plan and that plan IS to bankrupt us - then the socialist tyranny takes place. Yes, there is a point to string it out - because as long as there is a little heat in the fire it is MUCH easier to get a fire going. Once cold -the fire of liberty will be damn near impossible to get back. You are NOT talking a few years. You are talking generations. The pieces are being put in place. As soon as they figure out how the hell to get all the guns out of people's hands - it is over. A second term president with nothing to lose and a radical agenda and the pieces in place - watch out. Look at the blatant violations of justice taking place now - what happens when he doesn't even need to care about re-election? This is a plot from both sides(since they are one) - McCain picking Palin was the WORST move ever - assuring failure. They then prop up the guy that LOST to that guy? Then they float a VP name that isn't even eligible to take the office. It is a grand plan being executed perfectly. If the GOP was really in it to win - they would have propped up Ron - knowing full well he would beat Obama(not just because we are fans - even the polls say so).
This is the master stroke of the master plan. Don't kid yourself for one second - if this economy collapses you are talking absolute tyranny. Research that once beautiful country of Yugoslavia and what the collapse of their monetary system caused. Living Hell. Then amplify that to the magnitude of our economy AND the race wars being stoked by the President.

well said

it's all part of the global elites master plan.

RON PAUL 2012................... or bust....really

Opposition to Tyranny is Obedience to God!

Good points here. But even if Obama wins again...

they have awakened the sleeping giant - and that is US! The RP supporters who have been energized and growing in numbers every day. If not for RP in this race, there would not be such a vocal and passionate opposition to the oppression and tyranny of the State. Never Give Up, Never Give In!

And we should ..

We should prepare for this. Every crisis, like this coming crisis, is an opportunity for liberty.

I think this is a valid point.

What you said is dirty Brooklyn Paul, but I have the same sentiments. I'm assuming that you are talking about preferring Obama over Romney, given that we have absolutely no other choice. If we know a dollar crisis is inevitable, and the issue is only a matter of when (Obama sooner and Romney slightly later) I would prefer that it happens as soon as possible.

I will probably get voted down too for this but I know exactly what you are saying.

Besides

At least with Obama it's only 4 more years for sure. This from an old Republican that never voted for a Democrat.

More of the same or worse

4 more years with the garbage we have or 8 yrs of the garbage that thinks he is the nominee.
How about many years of constitutionalists instead. If it comes down to Romney or Obama, I am pretty sure Obama will win.

martial law

..and he will declare martial law..or there will be a false flag event{Chicago)..then martial law or some other excuse.. I believe this will be an attempt to disarm us..that will be the straw ...

Ron Paul or none at all

Get a load of this crack...

MANCHESTER, N.H. -- Mitt Romney implicitly accepted the Republican presidential nomination Tuesday night, leaving behind the intraparty fighting that at times sullied his candidacy and vowing to defeat President Obama with a pledge to restore both the economy and Americans’ belief in the future.

Say what?

Implicitly?

What are they trying to imply? My implicity meter isn't working.

You are REALLY pushing it

You are REALLY pushing it with this one. In what is still a 3 man race, getting 60% is very good. No matter how much you want to claim it isn't, it is.

Obama wasn't getting 60% in a TWO man race at this point in 2008.

And it certainly is better than getting 13%

The comparison to Obama is

The comparison to Obama is correct. Not sure why this was voted down so much.

To me

All you just said is that 13% of 300,000,000 care about liberty..The number is rising.

Sam Adams said something about a tireless...

minority.....

Who gained

a bigger percentage over the previous primary?

Mitt's crack is the $ from the central banks that keep his empty

campaign alive, even though he is simply running for POTUS. Puppet of the US.

EXCUSE ME

But you left out his absolute best State,Missouri,where just a short time ago,he won 147 delegates,and 147 alternates in St. Charles county alone,not to mention what he got in the rest of the state.I don't get it.i read the above info right here at DP.why is it that i'm the only one who ever mentions Missouri in these discussions? Are we just ignoring Missouri now?

I HOOKED THIS COMMENT TO THE WRONG COMMENT

and i can't seem to re move it.sorry

Seriously, dude...you have

Seriously, dude...you have have optimism...but you are just too far gone for it to be called optimism. Before tonight, the chances of an open convention were about 0.0000001% and the chances of Ron Paul winning were 0.000000001%. After tonight, they dropped to about 0.000000000000001%.

I seriously would like you to answer this question....After seeing Pennsylvania's results..a state that Santorum was winning before he dropped out, and seeing that Romney picked up AT LEAST half of Santorum's voters, and seeing today's Texas poll that showed the same thing...how on earth do you think that Ron Paul will overcome the THIRTY point deficit he faced in California BEFORE Santorum dropped out?

The ONLY way to keep Romney under 1144 BOUND delegates (not even counting ANY unbound states and super delegates) at this point is for him to lose California AND lose Texas by a big margin. And after tonight, it is very unlikely that EITHER will happen.

You are acting like someone who is going to Vegas and laying your hopes of paying this month's mortgage on hitting the pass line in craps 20 times in a row. And you are convinced it wil happen.

You refuse to accept that you SEVERELY misinterpreted why people were voting for Santorum..still thinking that every vote for was a vote against Romney, and therfore would go straight to Paul. Tonight showed that was not even close to true.

In a two man race, look for every remaining state to be like Virginia AT BEST. And therefore Romney to sweep the rest of the delegates...putting him WAY out of reach of any misguided and futile abstaining strategy

You Hit The Nail On The Head

Hi all,

I've been a Ron Paul supporter since early 2007 and I just want to say I think ManOrti has made a valid point here, whether or not we want to accept it. But, since it is a valid point, it is something that we should all consider. If we fool ourselves into thinking Romney is doing worse than he really is, we will hurt our chances at picking up delegates because people will start slacking off.

At this point, if we want to go to a brokered convention, our only option is to keep Romney from getting to 1,144 delegates. This will be difficult to do, so we should not delude ourselves into thinking it won't be. Romney picked up 120+ more bound delegates today, which puts his bound delegate total at a bit over 700. Even if we assume he gets 0 delegates from the RNC people (extremely unlikely) and 0 delegates from all of the caucuses (extremely unlikely), we will still have a very hard time keeping him from reaching 1,144. If one uses the current poll numbers in the remaining states, it becomes absolutely clear that, like ManOrti said, Romney will win the nomination. We need him to not win Indiana, California, and New Jersey. If he wins all of those, it's game over. I did some calculations, and with the assumptions above, I get that Romney will be about 80 delegates short if he doesn't win Indiana, but wins California and New Jersey (I'm using a conservative average of the most recent polling numbers from Real Clear Politics, e.g., he only gets 25% of the vote in Texas). It should be very clear to everyone that we still have a lot of work to do and a lot of donations to make.

Here are Ron's best states - notice a pattern?

Maine
North Dakota
Minnesota
Washington
Vermont
Rhode Island
Alaska
New Hampshire
Iowa
Hawaii
Nevada
Idaho

The upcoming states, except for Oregon and Montana, don't fit the pattern of small, northern, independent-minded states. These are southern, border, plains or heavily-urbanized states.
