Hi MinnesotaMary

Was born and raised in MN myself. Mary, see my post below titles "for war?"

Greetings from MN...

Freempg! I know that Sarah Palin does not agree with Ron Paul on foreign policy in the Middle East. She drank the Neocon/Dispensationalist Kool-Aid along with Michelle Bachmann a long time ago. There's no changing her mind.

Minnesota Mary

Interesting angle

You don't understand us. You are making the first step, but please, understand us. We know far, far more about Palin than you do. You say noting negative about Palin while criticism abounds in the Ron Paul camp, about Ron Paul himself.

That's the problem with the other supporters of the other candidates, you see them as infallible, you literally put them up on a pedestal.

You cite what they SAY ... but never what they have DONE.

How many elections has Ron Paul won to the U.S. House of representatives, do you know that fact?

How many breakfasts with Bernanke has Ron Paul had? What powerful financial committee does Congressman Dr. Ron Paul chair?

And we could try to inform you, we could point you to some really nutty, really crazy videos of some things that Palin has said, and done, which are just crazy as hell. And you know this, yet, you revel in this "Madonna on a Pedestal" kind of vapid, empty rhetoric which idolizes a person who quite literally, has never stepped foot into the Washinton D.C. political slaughterhouse.

She won a "Beauty Pageant", she flip-flops one day to be supportive of Ron Paul when it serves her interests and the next day support Herman Cain, or Romney, or whoever seems to be gaining some power, all to serve ... herself.

Congressman Dr. Ron Paul is a PHYSICIAN, a deliverer of over 4,000 babies. He's a self made man, a wealthy man who earned very penny while giving back to the community in very, very real ways.

Sarah QUIT her job as governor, she's a quitter. And we could go on and on, but you won't listen.

Can you imagine Adam Kokesh and his contingent of veterans and active duty U.S. military FOLLOWING Palin at the MARCH on the RNC in Tampa?

And you want HER to be COMMANDER IN CHIEF of the Armed Forces at a time of tremendous peril and global crisis and uncertainty?

Congressman Dr. Ron Paul is a VETERAN, an OFFICER and a GENTLEMAN. He was stationed in AFGHANISTAN during his honorable service in the U.S. military.

Sarah Palin ... throw an M16 into her hands, put a helmet on her head, put some boots on her, a parachute, push her out of the plane, she'd be passed out before she hit the sand.

Palin is a WARMONGER who wants other people's sons and daughter's to DIE, for her blood lust and war lust. She's a war mongering NEO-CON. Nuff' said.

COME ON ... you are here, in the heart of Ron Paul territory, you are here for a REASON, and it's not to idolize and worship, your ... Madonna. It's pathetic and we have real, honest concern for you and your ... delusion of grandeur. We honestly are very worried about Americans like you.

RON PAUL 2012!!!

I'm sure that Dr. Paul can find a job for Palin when he is president but he'll only be able to pay her slightly less than what the average American makes each year, so ... she wouldn't take the job.

You do know Ron Paul will only take about 40K as salary for the presidency, you do know he's pledged that right?

Wait, what DO you actually know about CONGRESSMAN DOCTOR Ron Paul ... ??? hmmmm ???

Thank you

I'm 59 yrs old and probably knew more about Ron Paul when you were in diapers. What you clearly don't get is Dr. Paul won't have the staying power to contest Romney or even hold him from acclimation in the first round. I was proposing a strategy for consideration. And please don't talk for "we" as you clearly don't represent the Paul supporters I know, one being my best, trusted friend for over 40 yrs.

Your "knowledge" of Governor Palin is pablum fed to fools by the same clowns that loathe Dr Paul. I am a man of principle, and I seek out politicians of the same. I suggest you read up on Palin and not be so arrogantly dismissive. You come off as shallow and uniformed. Further note, her son is in his second term of duty in Afghanistan. Romney's five sons didn't serve a day, nor did their father. And please, before another condescending lecture, I well know of Dr Paul's service in the Air Force. Who would be a better commander in chief? Take a look at her visit to troops in Kuwait during her service as Governor. I am well aware of Dr Paul's support among our military. You may need to brush up on Palin's.

Dr Paul referred to Palin as "a very wise woman," but I'm sure you knew that, right? Palin will be around a lot longer than Dr Paul who is in the twilight of his career.

I'm getting old and won't be around much longer. I've seen election cycle after election cycle with the county I love spiraling down the drain. If you are willing to accept Romney or Obama as your president while being smug and dismissive about an alternative in the same mold as Ron Paul, then you are a fool and deserve no better future than you are going to get.

I'm 48 years old.

When I was in diapers you were picking your zits and hoping the girl in math class would look at you.

Come on man, STRAW MAN, Personality ATTACKS, WEAKNESS, lack of logic, irrational.

What you do not understand is this is a REVOLUTION. Does Sarah Palin endorse a REVOLUTION??? Do you???

Sarah Palin as COMMANDER IN CHIEF of the U.S. Armed Forces? HaHaHa !

Marilynn Monroe visited the Troops, Dr. Paul SERVED !!!

To suggest Sarah Palin could function as Commander in Chief of the U.S. Armed forces is NUTSO BINGO, there, that's a personal attack.

As to age, I am going to live until I'm 100, or more, and I'll be fighting this revolution every single minute of that time, until I'm dead and gone.

Sure, Dr. Paul respects Sarah, and sees her intelligence, but Dr. Paul rarely says anything bad about anybody, unless they are truly insane, fake, war mongering liars or flip-floppers.

Sarah Palin is a LATE COMER to the side of Ron Paul, the ONLY reason she has said ANYTHING about Ron Paul is that she covets the wake left behind in his coat tails.

Sarah is a opportunist politician, nothing more, nothing less.

Now, let's you and I and Sarah RUCK UP and move out to the front lines, I'll dig, you cover Sarah and I'll take fire. HUP!

Sir,

With all due respect, I was babysitting when YOU were in diapers. Look at the title of this forum "Daily Paul" NOT Daily Palan, nor Daily Romney. WE true Ron Paul supporters ABHOR WAR and WARMINGERS! Very simple and Can NOT BE COMPRISED so please move on to a site that is in more agreement with your positions. We have already "studied" ALL other candidates and their positions. They are ALL for war except Gary Johnson and beiieve me, if Sarah Palin (the fake tea party candidate), and Rand Paul, and so on and so on get a speaking spot at Tampa and Ron Paul does NOT, YOU WILL HEAR A CRY FROM THE PEOPLE THAT THE ENTIRE WORLD WILL HEAR!!

For War?

Please provide a link where Sarah Palin says she is "for war" or advocated anything other than what Ron Paul advocates with regards to Congressional approval as per the Constitution. Did you see my link in the first post above at the bottom where Palin is praising Paul for his stance on Libya?

Here you go

This is my last post to you....this is WHAT you are endorsing and this is the "Tip" of the iceberg. Sarah Palin wants to continue to use our military to fight "The War On Terror (which is unwinable as is the "War on Drugs) AND to use our military "To Spread Freedom and Democracy" to any country in the world that desires it. Google Sarah Palin+war and see for yourself....then Google Ron Paul+War ENJOY

Some dictators hate America & what we stand for

Q: Secretaries of State Baker, Kissinger, Powell, they have all advocated some level of engagement with enemies. Do you think these former secretaries of state are wrong on that?
PALIN: No and Dr. Henry Kissinger especially. I had a good conversation with him recently. And he shared with me his passion for diplomacy. And that’s what John McCain and I would engage in also. But with some of these dictators who hate America and hate what we stand for, with our freedoms, our democracy, our tolerance, our respect for women’s rights, those who would try to destroy what we stand for cannot be met with just sitting down on a presidential level as Barack Obama had said he would be willing to do. That is beyond bad judgment. That is dangerous

She further criticized him on April 26, demanding Obama "step up and justify our Libyan involvement, or Americans are going to demand you pull out." She continued, "Simply put, what are we doing there? You’ve put us in a strategic no man’s land. If Gaddafi’s got to go, then tell NATO our continued participation hinges on this: We strike hard and Gaddafi will be gone. If, as you and your spokesmen suggest, we’re not to tell Libya what to do when it comes to that country’s leadership, and if you can’t explain to Americans why we’re willing to protect Libyan resources and civilians but not Syria’s, Yemen’s, Bahrain’s, Egypt’s, Israel’s, etc., then there is no justification for U.S. human and fiscal resources to be spent."[198]

Afghanistan
Palin believes that "We can win in Afghanistan" and "we must do what it takes to prevail. The stakes are very high." She urged Obama to "devote the resources necessary in Afghanistan" and pledged to support him if he made the "right" decision.[173]
[edit]Iraq
Palin supported the Bush Administration's policies in Iraq, but was concerned that "dependence on foreign energy" may be obstructing efforts to "have an exit plan in place".

During the 2008 vice-presidential debate on October 2, 2008, Palin stated that "A leader like Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who is not sane or stable when he says things like that, is not one whom we can allow to acquire nuclear energy, nuclear weapons." She also further criticized Obama's proposal in 2007 to meet with Ahmadinejad without preconditions, stating that such an action "is downright dangerous because leaders like Ahmadinejad, who would seek to acquire nuclear weapons and wipe off the face of the Earth an ally like we have in Israel, should not be met with without preconditions and diplomatic efforts being undertaken first."[184]

Palin and her membership in the CFR
http://www.cfr.org/experts/world/sarah-palin/b14564

If in it, win it.

The Constitution provides provisions for war for good reason. Palin and Paul agree that one should not be entered without following the Constitution. We also enter treaties which provide conditions under which we will help defend other nations. Are you a pacifist? If so, the discussion is pointless. You will have to be content while others fight for your freedom. That's not to say the phony wars we've engaged in lately, which have not been congressionally declared, including Viet Nam, are worth the hangnail of one American.

CFR

?

What you clearly don't get is Dr. Paul won't have the staying power to contest Romney or even hold him from acclimation in the first round.

Would you feel the same way if it were found by a court decision that is is unlawful to BIND delegates in a federal election?
What if RNC rules state the same thing and they have been binding delegates, illegally this whole time...
What would you say to that?
Just curious.

"OH NO! He has a SON?" Neoconservatives and Liberals EVERYWHERE!

Rand Paul 2016

covered that in first post

There is no need for a court decision. Precedent was set in 2008. Have a look at my first post in this string. I cover that. The delegates need only act on their free agency, let the GOP be forced into court contesting the precedent they themselves established and now in 2012 against their very own delegates. They will be exposed as the party of plutocrats and a laughingstock. The Democrats, of course, being no better and even far worse.

As such, a breakaway delegation will be like water on the wicked witch, if they can throw the water, maybe the GOPe machinery will melt and we will have a free for all. I hope so. The coalition between Paul delegates and disaffected conservatives led by Palin could very well accomplish this. First step, keep Romney from winning the first round, all else is meaningless. Palin has leased a large meeting space which holds thousands in the mall next door. I know of the Ron Paul Festival. An open convention is possible.

The problem is...

We don't just want a Republican nominee because that the Republicans will unite around (Palin wouldn't fill that anyways, IMO). We want a Republican nominee who CAN defeat Barack Obama. In polls, Ron Paul is the ONLY candidate who can actually defeat Obama, because he draws the support of Republicans, Independents and Democrats.

It's crazy to think Romney (who is a white-Obama) or Palin (who is not liked by many Democrats, and even Republicans) would draw the massive support that Ron Paul has. Most Ron Paul supporters would not vote for Palin, just as they could not vote for Romney. We are too principled to do something like that.

This is why the GOP is completely missing the boat by pushing for Mitt Romney to be the nominee. Do they not realize they are shooting themselves in the foot!

Good point

Point taken. Romney must be stopped in the first round or its game over. My fear is there are not enough delegates that will rally around Ron Paul for the fear of retrobution by the RINOs. There are strength in numbers. No man is an island. Paul an Palin are natural allies. Rest assured should Ron Paul win the nomination, I will vote for him. I will NEVER vote for Romney.

Umm

Ron Paul is still in the game. Here educate yourself.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8BS7AFqukV0&feature=youtu.be

Saw it

Bad choice of words on my part. I am all for Dr Paul's freedom message. I suggest you consider the core of the message "bring people together" and not for the wrong ideas. Palin is nowhere near anything like Romney, and has much in common with Dr Paul In fact, there is only one politician more villified that Dr Paul, and that's Sarah Palin. Ever wonder why?

Qfish gotcha'

Qfish makes a reply to you which really, really sinks your plan.

Congressman Dr. Paul draws INDEPENDENTS and DEMOCRATS to the ticket to support him as a candidate.

Palin DOES NOT have enough cross-over support into the other political spheres of the Electorate to amass a win over Barry Soetoro, argument finished.

Selecting Palin would be an Obama Win. Hillary would tear her to pieces in the campaign ad cycle, Palin would literally be torn to pieces by Hillary.

Hillary would specifically be assigned to destroying Palin and it would be easy.

Hillary CANNOT TOUCH Ron Paul, he's untouchable.

Hillary, really?

The insipid sociopath doormat Hillary Clinton would destroy Sarah Palin, the self-made woman that came out of nowhere from PTA, to City Council, to Mayor, to Chairman of the Oil and Gas Commission (which she busted of corruption, FBI perp walking people out of there), to taking on an incumbent Republican in the primary and winning, and then defeating an x democrat governor and winning on MERIT, then going on to achieve an 85% approval rating (speaking of crossover support), to damned near saving the fecklelss McCain campaign and has yet to buckle under to the most viscious enemies put against any politician, one of those enemies being Mittens Romney from even before the McCain/Palin campaign ended. Is this the person you think will be destroyed by the coattail-clinging, stand-by-your man Hillary? Laughable.

Oh, my fiend you highly underestimate this lady's intellect and

amazing looks!! If there ever was a presidential candidate for the sheeple of the United States it's reality show character Sarah Palin and her intellect, integrity, her awesome looks, and her constant God invoking demagoguery!! It's a match made in heaven for the mindless minions I talk to everyday!!

Ugly stick

Spoken like someone who is certainly ugly on the inside and no doubt on the outside, too.

something that I found odd...

Perry spoke, Santorum spoke, Paul spoke - all past or current candidates. But not one peep (video) of Mitt Romney "encouraging" and "inspiring" the Republican Party of Texas. I think the party leadership did not show Mitt Romney because they could not. Romney was in Texas last week, too. BUT NOT A WORD. Interesting.

Same thing happened with McCain in 2008, sort of

McCain did not dare step foot on Texas soil during our state convention in 2008. He did have a pre-recorded video which was shown during one of the general sessions back then. And was met with only mild clapping.

Texans have a tendency to call "bullshit" when they see it ... if they are being honest with themselves and are presented with the facts.

That is why such milquetoast candidates who purport to be presidential material shy away from potential embarrassment at such a large gathering ... the "boos" and "hisses" from the discontented in such a large group would make world headlines ... in a world where the media wasn't complicit in the deception, that is.

The fact that Dr. Paul had a breakout session of his own this year was a major step up from 2008. Dr. Paul's name was shut out of general session motions in 2008 by the chair having microphones cut whenever someone tried to acknowledge Dr. Paul's influencing a large influx of money and support into the R party.

The times, they are a changin'!

Can't think of any convention Mitt has attended

seems he always sends one of his sons. He knows most of the base finds him repugnant.

the talk is they didn't want booing....

The talk is that they did not mention Romney by name because they did not want a rowdy crowd of boos..

I guess

after Kay Bailey Hutchisons' breathing the words "Mitt Romney", any further mention was abandoned. Yea

This is indeed what happened

This is indeed what happened

IT SHOULD BE OBVIOUS THAT

IT SHOULD BE OBVIOUS THAT THERE ARE PEOPLE ON THIS PAGE TRYING TO DESTROY THE MOVEMENT! I POSTED THE VIDEO OF THE TEXAS STATE CONVENTION. LISTEN CLOSELY. THE WOMAN AT 4:35 POINTED OUT THAT IN THE CONVENTION RULES THAT NO DELEGATE CAN BE BOUND TO ANY CANDIDATE FOR RULE 39. A MOTION WAS PASSED TO AMEND RULE 38 WHICH SAID THEY WERE BOUND. THE AMENDMENT WAS CHANGED FOR THIS ELECTION AND IS FOR ALL ELECTIONS. RON PAUL 2012. DONT BE FOOLED. AN IDEA'S TIME HAS COME. THE OCCUPY MOVEMENT IS OVER AND PEOPLE ARE STARTING TO PAY MORE AND MORE ATTENTION TO THE ELECTION. DON'T BE FOOLED PEOPLE!

Actually, I don't think Rule

Actually, I don't think Rule No. 39 has anything to do with what this lady is talking about it. If you read Rule No. 39 in the national rules, which is what she is referring to, it says something along the lines of the following:

"If a majority of the delegates of any six (6)
states severally shall demand a roll call vote, the same
shall be taken of the states in the order hereinbefore
established."

So, Rule No. 39 has nothing to do with whether or not delegates are bound. If you read Rule No. 38, which is the rule the lady should have referred to, it says the following:

"No delegate or alternate delegate shall be
bound by any attempt of any state or Congressional
district to impose the unit rule."

Since Texas isn't trying to impose the unit rule on its delegates, I'm not sure what point you are trying to make.

Look, I've been a Ron Paul supporter for a long time now, but it is important that we speak the truth about the situation, that way our own supporters aren't mislead about what is happening (a lot of people became extremely discouraged in 2008 and did not put as much effort in this time as last).

TIME TO START CONVERTING ROMNEY SUPPORTERS!

RULE 38 STATES THAT ALL DELEGATES ARE UNBOUND IN THE NATIONAL RULES, RULE 39 SAYS AT THE NATIONAL CONVENTION IF 6 STATES WANT A ROLE CALL VOTE THEY WILL VOICE WHO THEY WANT IN OFFICE.

NATIONAL RULES OVERRIDE STATE RULES! RON PAUL WILL BE PRESIDENT THAT'S WHY HE HAS STOPPED SPENDING PEOPLES MONEY. IF HE WAS TO SPEND PEOPLES MONEY AND RAND PAUL ENDORSED MITT ROMNEY, THEN EVERYONE WOULD FEEL AS IF THEY WERE WORKING FOR MITT AND GETTING RAND INTO OFFICE.

IM TIRED OF FAKE PEOPLE COMING TO THIS THREAD JUST TO LIE AND DISTRACT PEOPLE FROM WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON. I DIDN'T HEAR ANYTHING FROM RON PAUL ABOUT ONLY 500 PEOPLE WHEN HE WAS SPEAKING IN TEXAS... DID YOU?
