Ugh! Paul lost to Romney in every county in TX

Ugh! Paul lost to Romney in every county in TX. How can Texans do this to their own? Quite ironic that Romney clinches the GOP nomination on Paul's home turf. This is really sad for Texans. They are a bunch of sheeple. The Tea Partiers supported Paul this time but they are really irrelevant and insignificant nowadays.

"Mitt Romney Wins Texas Primary, Clinches GOP Presidential Nomination"

you actually believe the diebold machines???

You trust your government? seriously ,even Dr Paul knows that voting fraud via electronic voting is so bad, that competing in those states is foolhardy. The establishment choose who wins via the electronic machines...not the people.

If there were no caucuses in this nation.. all semblance of freedom would be dead(at least in electing a president)

It would be wiser for you and anyone you know to actually attempt to get voters to the polls in S.Dakota!!!
go here for details....

Democrat(s) for Paul.

Yesterday, there was at least one individual who chose the Democratic ballot, but wanted to vote for Ron Paul, and couldn't. This is in district 85 of Montgomery County, where about 450 people came out to vote, so I don't know if this was widespread around Texas or not.

Ya'll DON'T be dogging the

Ya'll DON'T be dogging the Lone Star State! Our Ron Paul numbers here are big as Texas as we're all very much awake. We are doing what we need to do. The revolution may not be televised but we are living it everyday - just like the rest of you.

Now if you EXCUSE US we're going to keep on truckin'... straight to Tampa!

Here is some truth

out of North Texas, I was an election official and I can verify that the majority of the 300+ people who voted in the primary were 50+ years old. It was like a steady stream of nursing home ready folks were voting. I saw the ballots afterwards and while counting them Romney did get the majority of votes. My take on this was the older folks have been brainwashed by the MSM and their other brainwashed GOP friends to get behind Romney cause they don't want another 4 years of that Obama. And that's why I love all Ron Paul people, they have a brain and aren't brainwashed! Keep up all the hard work folks and keep getting delegates for Tampa. It's not over!

Im 50+

And many of my friends are 50+ years old. We are ALL Ron Paul supporters. Just because you see us walking into vote does not in any way indicate a vote for Romney. The liberty message is just not for the young....But it is the young peoples responsibility to make it happen. We "Old Folks" will help you as much as we can. Its your world now. Get involved. What you should be seeing is a flood of young people anxious to vote. But instead us old fogies are the ones that show up. Get The Message Out There Young People.

No matter where you go...there you are.

At my county convention most people were over 35

Mostly in their 40s and 50s. Did not see hardly any 20 something people. I live in one of the highest Paul favorable counties--Travis county.


Really 69 percent in Texas? Who's buying this shit? because I have a bridge for sale in Brooklyn. RP2012 I Hate The GOP Fraudmiesters

9/11 was an inside job .....time to get some answers..RP 2012

23.5% in Austin.. nice !

23.5% in Austin.. nice !

We did well in TX

Paul more than doubled his proportion of the vote from 2008, and increased his total number of votes from 66k to 170k. We won 18 delegates.

Yet people are (as always) ranting about voter fraud. Never mind that there's no evidence whatsoever (as usual), the only evidence you need is that Paul didn't win, right? You just knew he would win (despite all evidence to the contrary), and since he didn't meet your crazy expectations, well then the only explanation is massive voter fraud.


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

We COULD have done reasonably well...

But apparently there was no serious effort to verify the vote. Getting less than 15% in your home state is a DISGRACE even with blatant fraud, as a real campaign team would have worked to make sure it was exposed.

"Truth is an absolute defense to the charge of paranoia."

I see

you mean to tell me Romney kicked our ass in Pauls congressional district? You mean to tell me Ron Pauls supporters will vote for him for congress, but only a small fraction of that would vote in the primary. Do you mean to tell me that Romney who lost to Paul in 08 in Texas now suddenly got 4x as many votes as Paul? You are the one that is absurd. This was blatantly stolen from the American people. There is no way in hell RP has only 10% of the vote in Texas, no way.

No, you don't

"you mean to tell me Romney kicked our ass in Pauls congressional district?"

...you mean to tell me there was voter fraud in that district? Ok, show me the evidence.

"Do you mean to tell me that Romney who lost to Paul in 08 in Texas now suddenly got 4x as many votes as Paul?"

The majority of the electorate is unprincipled and ignorant, and they vote for the media-anointed candidate. In 08, that was McCain, this year it was Romney. TX is no different than the any other State, Mitt always pulls that part of the electorate, because he's always been the media favorite, the "inevitable" nominee, since before Iowa. It is no surprise that Mitt, who is out in the lead, with the perception that everyone else dropped out, won TX by a huge majority.

"This was blatantly stolen from the American people."

How? By what method? Did they count votes that didn't exist, or not count votes that did exist? Who? Where? When? How many? Where's your evidence? ...or maybe you're just speculating with no evidence at all.

"There is no way in hell RP has only 10% of the vote in Texas, no way."

...and you base this claim on what? Polls that showed Paul doing better in TX? Anything at all...or just more baseless speculation?

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

Forget trying to

get through, the people that believe it's all legit are never going to accept that cheating is going on right in front of their nose even with proof. I live in TX, there is no way Romney really won, nobody here likes him.


"even with proof"

...such as?

"I live in TX, there is no way Romney really won, nobody here likes him."

What proportion of the Republican electorate in TX do you know personally?

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

Jacky, we live in Austin where lots of people like him, but

in the rest of the state, they don't care much for him. They don't hate him, they just think his ideas are strange. And they also think he dropped out.

And even IF Ron Paul gets the nomination ...

THEN we have to deal with the entire democratic CRIMINAL MACHINE, which, I hate to tell you, is in EXECUTIVE control of the entire nation.

We come through these political battles, seeing the corruption of OUR OWN PARTY!

And then we will face a BILLION+ dollar democratic party, filled with people who idolize a man who blows the arms and legs off of children, women and men with drone bombs, (U.S. Citizens abroad as well), and GROWS SMACK in AFGHANISTAN.

All of them, ALL OF THEM, except for a very, very few, are not corrupt, not misguided, not misled ... they are VICIOUS FILTHY CRIMINALS. CRIMINALS.

Criminals do NOT listen to a voice, no matter how loud, and say to themselves, "we better give them their freedom, it's the right thing to do" ...


We are engaged with VICIOUS CRIMINALS that run our government. People who want to, and think about, dropping bombs on other human beings, blowing their bodies apart, and then TORTURING those that survive, THAT is your government.

BREATH it in, taste it, feel it, GET REAL.

If Ron Paul gets the nomination, then we fight the most well organized, most well funded, CRIMINAL political organization in the history of the United States, the democratic party at this point in its development.

It's all fantasy at some point. REVOLUTION or tyranny, in small, managed, sweetly administered doses.

YOU are the psychopath

Calling people criminals and wanting to hurt, physically, without evidence is the very definition of criminal and psychopath, paultard.

9 counties

I still want to know about the 9 counties with 100% of the precincts reporting and no results at all. Were these the Ron Paul counties?

70% needed, 71.4% obtained

What a coincidence, Romney needed 70% of the vote to assure the Main Stream media could publish their fake delegate count and he got it, in a state Ron Paul BEAT him in 2008, in Ron Paul's HOME state, where Ron Paul got a small fraction of the vote in his own district, where he got over 100,000 in the last election ...

Where primarily, electronic voting machines are used in Texas for this primary.

Where Debra Medina, relatively unknown compared to Congressman Dr. Ron Paul got 19% of the primary vote in the governor's race.

The PROBLEM is that Texas, just like the majority of Americans, are filled with pride in that they are unable to accept the fact that the "geek" culture of computing, which the majority of conservatives and older conservatives not only do not understand, but in many circumstances shun, and fear ... that the computer culture has afforded the opportunity to STEAL the VOTE with rigged computers.

And the biggest problem is that nobody wants to admit the ONLY solution, is revolution.

Those in power, who rig the vote on the computers and the machines are CRIMINALS, who in the 1800's and early 1900's would have literally, been strung up by their necks and hung in the town square, literally.

You know the solution, there is only one course of action because the ENTIRE government system is filled with criminals. Just like the years that preceded any major revolution in any nation, people walked around in a daze, mumbling and griping about corruption, doing relatively nothing, while the wealthy class controlled their government with bribes, blackmail, and threats of violence.

We've seen all of this. Stalin, Trotsky, Lenin, Mao Ze Dong, Hitler, etc ..., etc ...

There is only ONE solution. Live under the boot of increasing tyranny or revolution. It's really simple, it's not complex, it's not up for debate.

Wake up, open your eyes, lock and load, revolution will set you free, anything else is simply increasing tyranny.

We are giving it our best shot this year, following rules, grassroots upheaval, etc ... and it ain't shit.

We are in a battle with CRIMINAL PSYCHOPATHS, the wealthiest people on the face of the planet who MURDER and TORTURE and STEAL entire nations.

Revolution, just think about that word, revolution, think about the history of mankind and you will see, it's a choice, revolution, or live under the increasing boot of tyranny while the masters enjoy ever increasing wealth.

I could say this in German, in Spanish, in Mandarin, and they would be EXACTLY the same words their revolutionaries, good and bad, spoke before us. VERBATIM.

You speak the truth, Billboar

It is a revolution or nothing. Only a revolt against these super-criminals will win us our freedom.

Isn't it interesting that this revolution is so powerful that all the spies and saboteurs spend there time, here while, as always, we surely have no time for them.

I guess we

all have to spend some time on the survivalist forum now ;)

I just don't get the masses of people who just go on living like nothing is happening, like their whole world is not changing right in front of them. What is it going to take to finally get these ignorant people to give a sh*t? If not for themselves at least for their children or grandchildren, what is wrong with Americans???


The masses

We survivalists, we revolutionaries, have a fatal flaw in that we cannot or do not want to understand the masses. This is our flaw.

The masses are TERRIFIED. Criminals require that those they rule over be frightened, and in that they have done a superb job. In all areas of media, movies, video games, newspaper, magazines. Terror, War, Threat, Torture, aggression, etc ...

The entire thinking apparatus of the masses is TERROR. And they have won. The criminals are in control, the "masses" are terrified. It's done. They have left us with no solution except revolution.

And they will fill the skies with drones, bristling with the most advanced surgical homicidal killing grid you could ever imagine. It's being done RIGHT NOW.

Have lived in Texas my entire life

and have yet to meet a single Mitt Romney fan. The only way he gets those kind of numbers is if everyone thinks he's the only candidate.

I live right outside FT.Hood

The military here is 100% behind Ron Paul. Its very diverse area here. People from all over the world live here. I ask everyone I have the pleasure to talk to about the upcoming presidential election. Out of the hundred or so people Ive talked to I found 1...That's right ONE person that was a Romney supporter. His reason is that he thinks he is the one that can beat Obama. About 20% of the people Ive talked to said that they were going to support Obama, and half were voting for him because they think 4 years of Obama is better than 8 years of Romney. The rest are all Ron Paul Supporters. None new who Gary Johnson was????. So I call Shinanigans. Something stinks here in Texas.

No matter where you go...there you are.

Congradulation fellow Texans

Congradulations 70% of Texas voters. You made it clear, you want a millionare bankster as your president. Good job. The billionares who support them and are working hard to take your liberty and freedom, are proud of you this morning. *sarcasm off*
You all should be ashamed of yourselves turning your backs on a son of Texas. A vote for Romney is a vote for Obama, A vote for Obama is a vote for Romney. If you really want change you have to get away from these people.
I voted for Liberty and Freedom yesterday.....What did you do?

No matter where you go...there you are.


every Texan on this forum, myself included, gave our all to inform people to vote for Ron Paul, hell, we even went and raced our truck with "Vote May 29th" and RP Revolution all over it. So what I am saying is, you are discrediting the wrong people when you post this on here. You should be calling radio stations, writing to newspapers or networks to show your disgust for the way the primary turned out. I myself feel it was rigged, I personally have not met one Romney supporter. We own a business and 8 out of 10 people we meet like Ron Paul, the others don't know who he is.



You sir are absolutly right. Ive been voicing it here in central texas. I, in no way, was insulting my displeasure with the good Texans here at the Daily Paul. I was just voicing my disappointment in my fellow Texans in general. Im hoping the delegate count will renew my faith in my home state.

No matter where you go...there you are.

lindalsalisbury's picture

Goading Texans, Mr. ButchGood

does not illustrate your passion, Mr. 1 week and 6 days on the Daily Paul member.

Who are you to shame any Texan? I am sure there will be plenty of proud Texans on the floor in Tampa, along with Maine, Iowa, Nevada, Oklahoma ect. delegates? Were you around to shame all these other states? No!

Seems your pashion for liberty and freedom came just in time for you to run your mouth and bash Texans

Im allowed

I am a Texan and I am a little ashamed at the majority of status quo republicans here. All I hear here is, "we have to vote for Romney to get rid of Obama" (vote for the tick to get rid of the leech). This is what Im tired of hearing. Just because I havn't been responding to anything on these threads dosn't mean I havn't been following them for a very long time. But when my own embarasses me I have to say something. Not all of us are Republicrats. Some of us are true liberty fighters. Ive given Thousands to the cause, so don't you come here running your mouth telling me I cant scold the old school republican idiots here in texas. Im sure there will be plenty of my good nieghbors at the convention in tampa. I know. Ive seen them. Ive been to the rallies. Ive been a libertarian for ever. Ive never voted republican or democrat.Im also a vet who defended your liberty and freedom. The only thing Im new at is supporting a Republican. So dont you tell me my passion for liberty and freedom started 2 weeks ago because I didn't have a log in name and password. My passion started way befor this wonderful web site was even thought about.

No matter where you go...there you are.
