I think Romney, Rand and Ron have struck a deal. Heres why...

Rand had a secret meeting with Romney on wednesday according to an article today:

http://www.politico.com/blogs/burns-haberman/2012/05/romney-...

This is significant because that same day he went on T.V. basically saying he would support Romney as the nominee and praising him as a guy who could turn the economy around:

I have read several articles lately that says Romney and his staff are worried that Rand will run against Romney for the nomination in 2016 if he wins this year. Added to the fact that Romney and Ron are known to be on friendly terms, I believe a deal has been struck. Those that believe Ron is above such things are fooling themselves. A deal can made without Ron disregarding his principles. I deal can be made by someone who is desperate (Romney) and is willing to compromise with the other person. If Romney does not get over this voter antipathy from many Conservatives, tea partiers, and the growing libertarian wing of the party by election day. Which he won't, then he will probably lose. Thus Romney is willing to do anything to win it and knows Rand can give him that edge.

Rand Paul will probably become V.P. and Ron will likely become Treasury Secretary. Romney will agree to many thing like an audit of the Fed, Fort Knox, etc. and a decrease in military and defense spending among many other things. The appointing of Ron Paul approved individuals to important government posts etc. If Romney does not go along with many of these things then he knows he will not win reelection in 2016 and that Rand could run against him He's literally already a slave to us guys. We will in many ways own him for 4 or 5 years if I am right.

Also for those that don't think the Vice Presidential spot is an important position are not being truthful. They can vote when the vote is tied in the senate and can preside over the senate and in practice can influence votes that come onto the floor and delay bills that are unfavorable to them. They also enjoy a high profile and if they run for President after serving as V.P. they always get a lot of votes due to name recognition. Thus if Rand's V.P. he can likely be a frontrunner for the Republican nomination for the presidency in the years to come. And then we could finally have a libertarian in the White House!

Aren't we just a bit off-topic here?

We are in the middle of a process. I just don't see how this kind of speculation helps us stay focused. I do admit, however, it is a theory not without possibility or logic.

What is the gospel of liberty? It is the greatest compromise. Each gains more than must be granted. The gain is those liberties most precious - yours. What it is you must grant is often difficult,you must trust the other fellow with his.

Having a name like

Having a name like mittromneyisaweasle really makes you look like a troll. Most people here aren't haters, most of us are inspired by liberty. And those of us that are haters hate on people a little more important than some puppet candidate. It makes it seem like you are a romney troll and the name is a pathetic use of reverse psycology.

I will be voting for Rand, whether it be for VP or President!

Patience Grasshopper, for your time will come. We are slowly but surely taking over the local Republican Party control, and in the coming elections will determine the direction of the Party. If, and when Rand runs for Prez or is Romney's VP I am very open to voting for him. Rand is doing great work in the Senate and I have called his office to say just how much I appreciate his efforts. If Romney selects Rand Paul as his VP, he will get enough Ron Paul supporters to vote for him to beat Obama. We are in a war for Liberty, and 2012 is but a battle. We have come a long long way as a movement and to expect to have all of your ideals satisfied in one election is expecting too much, imo. If Rand is to be Romney's VP, I would expect the Republican platform to have enough of our Liberty issues on it to satisfy Ron Paul at this time. Besides, Ron Paul is not going anywhere after this election, and will still influence the outcome of Republican Party Politics for a long time to come.

It matters NOT. The R3VOLution will be for Napolitano2016

Obama beats Romney/Rand 2012, why? Because the R3VOLution will not wait until 2020, Rand VP or not. Rand will have shot a bullet in his foot with any Romney alliance. He already fails to inspire with sanctions on Iran, with meetings with Bill Krystal, etc.

The battle in 2016 inside the GOP will be this group of warmongers....Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, Marc Rubio.

The R3VOLution will be all in for Judge Andrew "Napolitano2016". The wonderful thing is that the Judge Andrew Napolitano can inspire. He is very eloquent and principled and most of all, passionate. He can beat Bush, Christie, Rubia and even Rand on any debate stage.

I persoanlly think that the Judge is next best thing to Ron Paul

but does he have any interest in running for President?

I have never heard one way or the other. Its a BIG DEAL.

Napolitano is...

...a most excellent choice after Ron and is already well known! I can see his future campaign slogan "here comes the judge!"...LOL! I also know Ron verbally said he was top on his list for VP, so that even meant Ron wanted him to be next in line!

I don't think it matters if they did

The delegates will decide who the nominee will be. Nothing Ron Paul can do about that.

Id be ok with this.

Id be ok with this.

It's not out of the realm of possibility.

Many presidents have chosen VP's for political reasons. Kennedy hated LBJ. Reagan hated Bush. Nixon picked Agnew because he was a nobody. I won't go into a full history lesson, but remember 4 years ago, McCain didn't know who Palin was until a week before the announcement, but they wanted to excite the base and thought they could pull in the women's vote.

Without us, Romney doesn't win...why wouldn't he put Rand on the ticket?

John Adams

You believe too much of the fairy tale of politics

Much of it is fabricated. For one thing, McCain and Palin teamed up to be pathetic so that Barry Soetoro wouldn't have much of a challenge. In other words, they were set up to fail.

I agree

The establishment isn't going to let Ron paul win, but they might let Rand have the VP in the contest, and those of us who joined the GOP will have the opportunity to further take control of the party, despite the purists among us, who will be the biggest losers.. greatest hearts, greatest morals even, but failing to understand we do not have the FORCE to take the party.

Compromising with crooks is

Compromising with crooks is always a bad idea.

I cannot totally recall...

...but isn't that what Reagan did(compromise) and that is what caused Paul(after endorsing Reagan)to jump out of the GOP for a time?

I don't agree

I was trained that if an armed person said, "Hand over your purse", I would hand it over in hopes I would save my life. It may be a bad idea, but seems to me the only other optiion is being shot and having the purse taken?

We are being robbed, so how do we save our life and prepare to fight for another day/way?

Ignore the troll in the room....

take a hike...you are a transparent troll trying create dissent among the Patriots.

Love of God , Love of Country, Love of family, Love of Life, Love of Liberty. I would take a bullet for this man.

Your theory is based that

Your theory is based that there is an election in the united states. Romney is just an image of an opponent. He and anybody who knows the game knows that he will "lose".

I see you are new, so i'm not going to vote you down

Romney cannot step out of the matrix and support Ron Pauls positions, you have to know why he is the MSM and establishments candidate. If he took those positions the establishment and the media would tun on him like a stick poked wolverine. He is their candidate, that's why he has got as far as he has. Did you ever wonder why Obama never followed through with his promises, even those that he said we could "take to the bank"? There is more going on here than any of us realize.

You have it backwards

The MSM is on Mitt Robme's side, just as the Establishment is, because they were given the orders to support Robme from their masters above.

Presidents have been appointed for decades.

He has supported every other

He has supported every other available position, why is it so implausible that he finally supports the right position?

Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.
John Adams

It is possible

I would not totally discount it. Its possible that Romney could do a 180 and become supportive of the liberty movement, but if he did the blowback from the establishment would cost him their support and re-election or worse. Romney is a consensus builder, if any situation arises he will look to his advisers. He even answered a question during one of the debates regarding going to war, he said he would confer with his attorneys. Ron Paul will look to the constitution.

i'm sure the headline reflects

the dreams of both of romney's supporters.

"The two weakest arguments for any issue on the House floor are moral and constitutional"
Ron Paul

bob suck my blankety blank blank.

Look at me..........

I am a weasle and a troll. I want to stir debate for my employers that will distract you from tearing down the establishment.

I am so creative with my post. I got paid $8 to come up with it.

don't know how to spell weasel, even if I am one. :)

just stopping by to say....

go hither into blue yonder, web poking troll.

It's the CRFB Report Rand and it refutes your belief

that Romney can do anything positive with the economy. He'll sink it faster than the Hindenberg fell out of the sky.

Independent mathematical proof that all candidates except Ron Paul collapse the dollar.

NEVER going to

NEVER going to happen.....O'ROMNEY is a puppet and George Bush Sr. will never in a MILLION years allow this! I do hope ROMNEY and his cronies are all hauled off to jail before the convention so we don't have to go through 4 more years of BO!!!

The *only* deal I can imagine

The *only* deal I can imagine is that Romney knows he will lose in 2012, so Rand will come "to the rescue" in 2016 after Obama's failure, guaranteeing his win.

I actually like this idea.

I actually like this idea. Ron and Rand are trying to save the republic. If that means they have to do so by unconventional means, I think that they should. We all know that a critical point in the world economy is fast approaching and the faster we do something, the better of everyone will be.
