WIN CALIFORNIA MoneyBomb!!! (major help needed!)


We're having a bit of a rough start to our MoneyBomb but with some help I am sure we can make it a success :) PLEASE help us promote this and get it on the front page (of course donate as generously as you can). I don't know how to add a graphic to our post and make the graphic the link, I would greatly appreciate any help.

DP post on this: http://www.dailypaul.com/237042/california-moneybomb


Swann needs to get some basic facts ....

In Massachusetts supporters did not take '16 0f 19 delegate slots' but took between 16 and 19 of 27 delegate slots....

On June 12 the Mass. Republican State Committee will elect another 11 delegates from among the 80 state committee members (all are expected to be Romney supporters).

Swann is correct that the delegate numbers are not settled in many states (like Texas).

Illinois legislator gets it (video)

At times it feels like the movement is at a stand still
And like this video times when u know u have made a
Difference and people are hearing us


With this nomination process, we can just recycle old comments!

I still can't get over the irony

In Iraq, didn't we claim we wanted to ensure free and honest elections? Remember pictures like this - the purple thumbs? http://blogs.guardian.co.uk/news/archives/images/finger.jpg

Keepin' it real.

Sexy & Smart!

Thank you Ben for the real news!

Dutch news not so good either

I live over here and I don't watch the dutch news anymore, I guess they just believe what they are told like so many other European countries! I like the video from Spain where he talks about Ron Paul and why the Spanish media isn't reporting the truth! The only place I get my news is the DailyPaul, RT, SGTReport and a couple of other sites. Keep the faith!, more and more people are waking up! I have a feeling that this is beginning! The year that changes everything for good or bad especially for the USA!

Fear knocked on my door and Faith answered!

OT- You have one of the

OT- You have one of the classiest lines for a signature ever IMO. I'm tempted to adopt it: "Fear knocked on my door and Faith answered!" ... awesome. :)

Thanks! :)

Wish I could claim it as my own :) I either heard it somewhere, or read it in a book.

Fear knocked on my door and Faith answered!

Thank you, Press Secretary Ben Swann!! ;)

The Establishment has officially crossed the line of no return and has officially begun to destroy itself from within! This "news" changes nothing for the Revolution other than make Romney's followers more passive to the solid foundation laid by Ron Paul supporters. The MSM has gone along with lies that they cannot back out of now which is why they're just perpetuating it even further. Imagine what the 10-12 people who still watch MSM would think if they learned they've been had this whole time?

Get Ready to go down in the History Books friends!!! This is a fight of Good and Evil of Biblical proportions!

5/29/12 MA liberty caucus protest

The Massachusetts GOP held an allocation committee meeting last night to decertify the results from district 5. They were also supposed to rule on the controversial provisional ballots.

Count the votes Ma GOP, Count the votes


hey lib

go phuk your self and romney, too


you've got romney in your court,r emember paul is buddies

with romney. you don't realize it is a stupid, bad relationship, or think you deserve such relationships with romney.


romney won months ago,

when everyone but paul and newt dropped out, romney is official.

the gop and dnc are romney's party. they are not to paul. libertarian party is paul's party, and that is the only way he could win. you can't pretend to be something else on someonelse's platform and get away with it.

i am sure none of the former rivals have any qualms about dropping out, it was clear months ago that only romney would be the nominee. and i think each of the former rivals that dropped out was smart and have long since moved on with their lives and been productive.

i like ben swann, but he is heading the wrong way and not living in reality and when you kick the can down the road further to deal with the real issues, you lose.



You said;

libertarian party is paul's party, and that is the only way he could win. you can't pretend to be something else on someonelse's platform and get away with it.


Ron Paul's party is the REPUBLICAN PARTY.

He's the only true conservative in this race.

Get off the board!

Keepin' it real.

lib, you don't get it

Former rivals are “smart”? You mean like Santorum being nearly $2 million in debt and Gingrich’s over $4 million in debt.
Ron Paul on the other hand ZERO debt. We know who the smart one is. Contrary to the short-sighted thinking that presupposes
Dr. Paul should align with the Libertarian Party, the reality is his supporters are changing the face of the GOP party by taking party leadership positions one state at a time. Obviously you haven’t caught on to that yet, but in time you will as will the GOP establishment when Tampa rolls around. Ben Swann deserves the highest honesty in journalism award for his unbiased broadcasting and
bringing truth to politics in what would otherwise be a total MSM sham distortion of Ron Paul’s political ascendance and the positive, hopeful changes his Liberty movement is making within the GOP party.

you are not getting much of anything.

it is not about changing the gop party. you are talking out of both sides of your mouth out of fear of thinking for yourself. it is about changing estab, which means both parties which are essentially one virtually.

so you are a serial hypocrite (not newt) for acting like you are so clean yet complain, but won't do anything. paul doesn't even have a platform to run for office. you love the gop as it is, yet you complain of fraud and you give the official camapign money to do nothing.

some ideological successes, but fairly limited. and why only target republicans. why not go after democrats and tell them about the fed, etc.. but the problem is that you and the campaign dont' want to, perhaps because at the end of the day it is just a bit of educating you want to do and have fear to action or widespread dissent, which is what estab fears. what is going on now is what estab does not fear.

It's not all about Ron Paul

It's about you

So what you are implying here Lib is...

...that Paul isn't smart, should have moved on months ago, and isn't productive! You are a troll of the worst kind and obviously are not a Paul supporter. Usually I am very polite to people, but you can place your comment where the sun doesn't shine...TROLL!

lib = liberal = obama

Go Home


Thanks Ben

You are a lifeboat of truth in a sea of lies.

Spread this video like wildfire

I just send it to all my email contacts and facebook. If we do this now and reach enough people, it will be another nail in the coffin for Mittens, because other non Ron Paul Republicans are watching and this makes him look arrogant and low. Hit your fire for effect button.

I like this story. Those who

I like this story. Those who saw it may understand the massive number of Ron Paul write-ins, should Romney win the nomination at the convention.

Dutch national news

Hi guys,

This morning, the Dutch were informed by the national news that Romney is the republican candidate in november, that he got the delegates after winning Texas, and that there was no way he would not get the nomination after Ron Paul had left the race earlier this month.

This is our national news channel. It is paid for by my tax dollars. The least thing we could expect as citizens is that they portray things accurately, that they report facts not fiction.

As earlier, when I emailed them multiple times about their newscast about Ron Paul dropping out of the race, I just sent them another email, explaining the situation and pointing out their responsibility. They reacted at first to the other emails, and were being good sport, although I got no response to my last email. I hope they react to the message I just sent them. I linked this video as part of their education.

Let's see what happens, I hope they are still really independent, but I fear the worst. Well, at least I got if of my chest.

Lastly I want to say is that we are doing great, we could get the majority of Texas delegates as long as we show up. This is still far from over in my book. Keep the faith and keep up the good work everyone, keep spreading the message!

Have a good day.


Media bias

I think the problem is the world news bases much of what they report based on the American news.

It's the same thing in Canada, unless someone is really watching the process they would be under the impression that Romney is the official GOP candidate.


that Dutch Queen seems evil though


the 'media assassins'

Rob and Pieter, I also mailed

Rob and Pieter,

I also mailed various Dutch news agencies that they were not correct with this whole clinched nomination thing. Indeed, if only to get it of ones chest.

(The nomination news was *literally* what woke me up. Ugh. ;o)

I also suggested them to send reporters to Tampa to witness something historical. ;D :P

(And the more camera's are rolling there, the better! :))
