Why is everyone so against Ron Paul making deals with Romney?Submitted by TylerLiberty on Sun, 06/03/2012 - 20:37
Ron Paul has said for years that winning to him is not necessarily winning elections. Winning to Ron is over ideology. If Ron Paul can persuade Romney to take Constitutional positions, we've won.
Do I want Ron Paul as president? YES! Just as much as everyone else here. But, I think Ron Paul (self-described pessimist on being elected) feels this is his chance to directly influence the establisment.
Am I wrong for putting trust in Ron and Rand for meeting secretly with people we ideologically disagree with? I think they have the Constitution and all of us in mind. Remember Rand's first speech on the Senate floor against compromising? I don't think he's sacrificing anything to get some of what he wants. I just hope when the two explain their positions they say, "now take a step back and understand why I take these positions." It's great to hear the opposition coming around and agreeing with us on current issues, but in the future there will be new issues. And we need them to stay in agreement with us.
Whether Ron Paul is hiding at Bilderberg, I could care less. I say talk to them. Influence them. Bring them to our ideology and logic. We won't win over their minds by yelling at them. Ron is right; we must be civil or our message goes unheard.
