Maine Legislator Turncoat

Rep. Ryan Harmon, a supposed Ron Paul supporter who often speaks libertarian, sent out this e-mail this morning:

Dear Friends,

We are making incredible strides in our effort to restore liberty and fiscal responsibility to America. Over the past few months Dr. Paul has been an exemplary advocate for our shared commitment to the Constitution. I am sincerely grateful for his contributions and I am honored to have had the opportunity to support him.

With the General Election in sight, I believe that we can best advance our shared ideals by uniting with our fellow Republicans to challenge Barack Obama. Mitt Romney is a proven leader in the movement to restore prosperity and freedom to America and there is no doubt in my mind that he will be a principled President.

Friends, I urge you to join me in supporting Mitt Romney and voting for his slate of Delegates to the Republican National Convention. Now is the time for us to come together and unite as Conservatives.

In Liberty,

Ryan Harmon
State Representative
District #45
Burnham, Freedom, Knox, Montville, Palermo, Thorndike, Troy, and Unity
"Liberty lies in the hearts of men and women; when it dies there, no constitution, no law, no court can save it; no constitution, no law, no court can even do much to help it." - James Madison

Just called Ryan ans told him his email wording was faulty.

Romney is a flip-flop..If Ryan wanted a career in politics he might make another choice..

Just one last kick in the nuts, then a final deathblow

Of course he likes Romney...

...he's obviously a flip-flopper!

Don't pull a Harmon.....

When you pull a "Harmon" you lose all credibility, when you lose credibility you lose your career, when you lose your career you wife leaves you for a Ron Paul supporter.... After all freedom is popular....

Unbelievable... anybody checking on the rest?

Maine endorsements of Ron Paul according to wikipedia:

Aaron F. Libby, Maine State Representative[130]
Larry C Dunphy, Maine State Representative[130]
Jeffery A Gifford, Maine State Representative[130]
R. Ryan Harmon, Maine State Representative[130]
David D. Johnson, Maine State Representative[130]
Lance E. Harvell, Maine State Representative[130]
Michael D. McClellan, Maine State Representative[130]
Beth A. O Connor, Maine State Representative[130]
Heather W. Sirocki, Maine State Representative[130]
Paul Waterhouse, Maine State Representative[130]
Michael J. Willette, Maine State Representative[130]

From freedom watch Feb. 2 2012 where this list was sourced at 2:30:

Judge Napolitano said that State rep Aaron F Libby "not only endorsed Ron Paul but marshalled 10 of his fellow legislators to join him in Ron Paul's quest to take the republican nomination for president "

Rep Libby sounds legit and solid, but is he still? Are any of the rest? Before any others commit political suicide we should remind them that we will not accept any Romney endorsements from our elected representatives and will find their replacements if they feel differently.

You trying to fan flames?

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution, inevitable.

No, trying to make sure our support is solid,

make sure these officials are still aware Ron Paul is the race and winning Maine and to make sure that we're not supporting any other turncoats. Can anyone in Maine vouch for the rest of these endorsers? If they are your rep can you please contact them and reassure them that they should maintain their support for Dr. Paul?

Ron Paul supporters in Maine thanks for all your hard work! You're doing great work up there! Keep it up! Keep the pressure on!

I think most of them have been checked before.

That guy just slipped through the cracks I'm sure. You will have a few Judas's no matter what you do.

True, I hope you're right

and sorry about the downvotes above. It was a legitimate question and afforded me the opportunity to clarify my intentions as my original post might have come off a little witch hunty as opposed to being a call to action to make sure none of the others "slip through the cracks" whether they might be traitors, infiltrators, been bought off or whether they were just genuinely unaware that Ron still has a fighting chance and that its not over yet as may be the case. Here's an upvote for what its worth :)

No worries.

I'm very watchful myself. :)

Very fitting quote

for someone who has just let Liberty die inside himself if it ever had an ember to begin with.

Just found an email of his. He's from Maine BTW... Been sniffing Charlies ass most likely.

He said one true thing

"Now is the time for us to come together and unite as Conservatives"

Yes Mr. Harmon in this you are correct.
We unite behind the only conservative candidate Dr. Ron Paul.

What's this guy's email?

Does anyone know this "Ryan Harmon" guy's e-mail address?

Let's let him know what we think about what he just said. (Reading that e-mail makes me very, very, very upset)

...we Stand!


So now we find out

there are "sleepers" in both camps.
No lose to the Revolution, this creep.

This Klown...

...speaks about liberty and supports the romulan nittney?

Un-flippin-believable and we now see that the romulans are also using the stealth delegates also. Here is the first to show his true colors and spots of the traitor he is. One can suspect there are more of these pretend to be Ron Paul supporters that will turncoat like this pile of carp did here using his title and position to promote this tripe. We really need to be vetting the Ron Paul delegates so this does not happen any more. Get them traitors out and replace them with alternates NOW, or it could come back to bite us on the backside later.

Never turn your back on a traitor!~

Imagine the irony of saying liberty and romney in the same paragraph. Kind of flies in the face of his resounding support for the NDAA, the patriot act, and his supportive perpetuation of the war based on lies.


And how about romney's investments in china? Why not invest in the USA?



And his flip-floppityness of the investing in Iranian Oil:


So this klown is not only pushing the communist supporting mit romney, but he must also be supporting Agenda 21 if he is pushing the romulan camp that all work for the UN bankster globalists.


Those folks in Maine are about to route out many of these romulans and take back the state for Ron Paul. No doubt there will be a new chairman elected that will support Ron Paul also. Hopefully, in the clean sweeping, this klown will be swept out also!

Go Maine...show us how you do it!!!


Unfortunately, he would have

Unfortunately, he would have been hard to detect. According to his bio, he even graduated from Mises University. If he is defeated by a landslide in the next election and shunned as a leper by all of us, however, that will send a very powerful message.

I emailed him. Bad Political

I emailed him. Bad Political Move.

Let's make it so!

Let's make it so!

What's the story on this guy?

What's the story on this guy? Was he ever really one of us? This guy needs to be targeted for defeat as soon as the state convention ends.

No he was NEVER really one of us

Looks like he says what he thinks will further his own personal agenda at the time, remind you of anyone we know? Hint: starts with "Mitt" and ends with "Romney"!

Dear Mr. Harmon,

Go F#$k yourself,

When a woman speaks...

...like this...she often reminds me of the Spirit of Betsy Ross and her dedication to the revolution then.


Give thanks, give thanks to all the women of the Ron Paul Peace and prosperity again in America Campaign.



From now on, let's make sure

From now on, let's make sure to describe future traitors as "Harmons."

Truthbearer's picture


...and catchy!

How to inadvertently make history?

Be a two faced traitor supporter of another two-faced traitor!


I like it.....

Just try and pull a "Harmon" and see what happens to your political career! LOL!

We shall, from here on out,

We shall, from here on out, identify all 'Ryan Harmons' in our midsts and defeat them.

This is really our first

This is really our first outright traitor this election season. His timing, for any hope of a future political career, could not have been worse.

Truthbearer's picture

Let it be...

...taken as no less than a warning shot across the bow that we saw coming. See the light shined on it to emphasize that this actually can happen as forethought and then give thanks that the Spirit roots out the evil before it can stab us in the back later.

What we ALL must embrace every day is the Creator and the Creation, God, is on our side and all that is good and real forms of love is also. Take that to the bank!...and then get your money out.


Paid Off

They buy votes why not pay for turn coats

Truthbearer's picture

Who could ever...

...forget this famous statement on the mittneycentral romulan hang out chat?

"04/14/12 10:12 PMJSmith: Have you not heard, this is why Romneys campaign is about to spend a lot (in other words bribe) to make sure the delegates are Romney supporters. McCain had to do the same last cycle"

Still a meaningful and powerful well emphasized truth that the corruption behind closed doors is off the hook.
