We've been wounded.. What should we do?

All this chaos is really confusing to me. Yes, it's apparent that something (in the campaign) has changed. Maybe something/someone scared Dr. Paul. Threats? Him? His family? Who knows. It's all speculation and assumption, and means nothing.

There is much more going on than we know about. We more than likely will never know the whole story behind what is currently happening, but honestly, does it even really matter?

Just because your General has been wounded on the field, does that mean you quit fighting? No. You pick him up, throw him over your shoulder, shield him, and continue moving forward.

Ron Paul's current job is done. He has awaken many people --ENOUGH people-- and created a self-sustaining, non-violent, movement. A R3VOLUTION to be specific.

There is nothing more for him, nor his campaign to do besides wait for us to get him elected.

What should we do?
We should do the exact same thing we've been doing at state conventions with exception of now having MORE passion. It's time to change the future and rewrite history.

for some reason, i thought of this joke:

Once upon a time, there was an officer of the Royal
Navy named Captain Bravado who showed no fear when
facing his enemies. One day, while sailing the Seven
Seas, his lookout spotted a pirate ship approaching,
and the crew became frantic. Captain Bravado bellowed,
"Bring me my red shirt!"
The first mate quickly retrieved the captain's red
shirt, and while wearing the brightly colored frock,
the Captain led his crew into battle and defeated the
mighty pirates.
That evening, all the men sat around on deck
recounting the triumph of earlier. One of them asked
the Captain, "Sir, why did you call for your red shirt
before battle?"
The Captain replied, "If I were to be wounded in the
attack, the shirt would not show my blood. Thus, you
men would continue to fight, unafraid."
All of the men sat and marveled at the courage of such
a man. As dawn came the next morning, the
lookout spotted not one, not two, but TEN pirate ships
approaching. The crew stared in worshipful silence at
the Captain and waited for his usual orders.

Captain Bravado gazed with steely eyes upon the vast
armada arrayed against his ship, and without fear,
turned and calmly shouted, "Get me my brown pants."

great stuff!

There should be no confusion...

...the recent announcements made several simple points:

1. The campaign is no longer going to spend money on primaries, it is focusing entirely on wrapping up the caucus States.

-Ok, sounds like a good use of scarce resources to me.

2. The campaign is going all the way to Tampa with whatever delegates we can collect.

--We already knew this, good to hear.

3. Realize that the nomination, barring some unforeseen event, is no longer within our reach at this point.

--If you were paying attention to the delegate count, you already knew this.

4. So why continue if we can't win the nomination? To build the movement, and every delegate won and State party taken over helps with that effort.

--Everyone should have already known that this is a long-term project, not a one-time deal, and that taking over the GOP is almost as important as winning the nomination.

There is absolutely no reason for people to be freaking out.

"Alas! I believe in the virtue of birds. And it only takes a feather for me to die laughing."

"3. Realize that the

"3. Realize that the nomination, barring some unforeseen event, is no longer within our reach at this point."

We always knew this mathematically. However, I don't believe the GOP has ever been in a situation where the 1144 delegates were actually people who are for a candidate *other* than the one who achieved the 1144 total, AND those people were planning to abstain from voting. That alone was the game changer.

I believe this is what Ron Paul could possibly be concerned of. The possible chaos that *may* be caused and that isn't what he stands for.

Why is it either/or? Why can't the strategy be implemented with us focusing on not causing problems, while at the same time making a dignified stand that we do not agree with the 1144 winner respectfully?

Hr has made it pretty clear

Hr has made it pretty clear that he doesn't WANT to be nominated if it means disenfranchising millions of voters. Because that would not only mean a humiliating loss in November, but it would DESTROY the movement.

You see..unlike you, HE is not a complete idiot and knows that this is not about him. It never was. At NO point did he had delusions of sleeping in the White House come next January.

lol I love illogical logic.

Gosh I'm so glad

You joined one whole day ago, just to come here and troll.

The only reason they are disenfranchised is because

he has been blacked out! They would be very happy once conservative radio got behind him (which they would have to do to beat obama) and the straw votes would soon be forgotten. There would be no humiliating loss!

Two bad we couldn't have an actual popular vote of people who truly understand BOTH Romney and Ron Paul positions and THEN see where he actually stands.

You're not "going against the will" of the people when the majority of the people don't understand who and what they're voting for.

The only idiot in this situation is YOU

Thinking you are fooling anyone with your drivel. You've been here just over a day and have been busy attempting to sabotage moral. Go slither back under your rock.

Oh, and warn Mittwitt the Artificial to be careful in Tampa; the Florida sun is hot enough to melt wax and plastic.
