Campaign Over

The e-mail from Dr. Paul was his way of letting us down easy. They are no longer playing to win. Also, reading between the lines of what Carol Paul said earlier, she is no longer in a winning mode.

In fact, I will go so far as to say that based on what I have read it sounds as if Dr. Paul never really had an idea that he wanted to win. I don't think he ever saw himself in the White House.

I take it as a signal to stop writing articles about GOP corruption, or pointing out Romney's flaws. They want to shift entirely to policy and platform from here on out.

What I still don't understand is why the campaign was so hostile to Gingrich and Santorum and not Romney. They could have knocked Romney out cold when he was reeling and taken their chances against Newt or Santorum and won! The only conclusion is that Ron wanted Romney to win.

It has been an inspiring several months but it is over. Time to move on to the next phase of the Revolution.

Romney attends Bilderberg....

...while Rand praises him in a 5-minute FOX NEWS segment a week ago.

While Carol tells us how friendly she has become with Ann, and how the Paul grandchildren like and play with the Romney children on the "campaign trail."

While the campaign refuses to run ONE SINGLE ATTACK AD that would have brought Romney down after it was just the two of them-- when the contrast between the choice, Paul/Romney, could have led to massive victories everywhere.

While Rome burns...we build a "movement"...

I am truly sorry to sound so negative here, but we do not have time for this. The Republic is hanging by a thread--and THE REPUBLIC CAN NOT SURVIVE four years of bankster/Bilderberger ROMNEY!

Go ahead and down vote until your hearts content.

Kudos for this thread, Kevin. We'd better figure out what happened here, and SOON. I do not have the answers, just pointing out the very disturbing facts.

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

Well, maybe for you Newbie

Yes, Oh member of the Revolution for all of 5 months.

It is not about one campaign - it is the message. Ron Paul said it many times, the message is powerful. It is our duty to spread the message because once you have knowledge of tyranny, it is your duty to spread the truth to the ignorant and try to save them. Honestly, I knew it was a very long shot from the beginning, even with occasional bouts of hope.

The truth is, the sheeple are not ready. Not even my close friends are ready. Not even my family is ready. The American Enlightenment requires an awakening, a resistance to the divine rule of kings. Once awake you can never return to sleep. So....since you are awake, might as well do something. Right?

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain

Of course it is about the message

And that makes my point. Nobody is working harder that me to spread the message of liberty and personal responsibility. Paul seems to be saying that it is time to shift our focus entirely to that end and forget about the prospects of winning this election. I'm in for that.

From my perspective I wish the campaign was more aggressive in going after the win AND spreading the message. Lately I have been feeling like a lot of us are fighting while the campaign is telling us to cool our jets. Dr. Paul reinforced that yesterday.

Hey w..ait a second

i thought the campaign was already over?
Mc Lister: What the fu** happened to the Remnant I used to know? Where's the spirit? Where's the guts, huh?
"Ooh, we're afraid to go with you Mc Lister, we might get in trouble." Well just kiss my ass from now on! Not me!
I'm not gonna take this. Wormer, he's a dead man! Marmalard, dead!

Dead!

500??

Texas convention doesn't even vote for Delegates until Friday.

We will for sure add to the total! +143

Or is his number including what he projects to win.

Change the course of history...

that is what he set out to do, and what he has done. 10-15% of the american population supported the american revolutionaries. It's no coincidence that we get the same numbers across the nation.

I think some observations are right, especially about Romney. While he is scum, he is less scum than any of the other candidates, and also the only candidate that has a snowballs chance in defeating Obamney. I will never vote for him, but can you imagine had Gingrich been the nominee? Santorum? Bachman? Cain? It brings a bit of vomit to my throat to think of it.

Additonally, i can't help but think that there were dangers we may not know had he gotten the nomination, or even the presidency. No matter how bad we wanted it, those are bad bad people he was fighting. But guess what, now it's not just him. We have taken a sizable percentage of the republican party over. And if we keep the good fight we can win and take it over. Like Mrs. Paul said, you can't stop a freight train on a dime. I can still only hope that as we play a big part in shaping the platform, the delegation realizes Romney has no chance in hell in selling it. How could he? Maybe, just maybe Paul will be elected from the floor. I can pray for miracles. Jesus performed them all the time. But, what I can say is that what Ron Paul has accomplished in the face of all odds is a miracle in itself, and is largely due to the work of all of you. If you don't go away, nor will the spirit of Ron Paul and the spirit of this Revolution!

Rand Paul 2016

Yeah, rriiight

Stop writing articles pointing out the GOP corruption, swallow our medicine, move on and face the fact that Ron Paul wanted Rombama all along. What a crock. The Pauls may be a tad demoralized, and who can blame them? Who knows what veiled or even overt threats they have received or what kind of pressure he got to back off? Something has happened and it was because of his building momentum and huge crowds. Rombama can barely get a few hundred supporters to show up and how many of them are paid? It's so obvious Dr Paul has much more popular support and he is being cheated. They may cheat him and us but why lie down and make it easy for them? Why not make them show themselves for the corrupt fascists they are?
That ridiculous meme that Dr Paul never wanted to be in the White House is supposed to do what? Smear him as a liar?

I disagree wholeheartedly

This is a strategic move so that the "upset" at the convention is considered "extremely surprising"..seeing as how he "conceded" in an email a couple months prior....

Deftly played!

I hear no fat lady

Tampa is the destination it is the delegates that vote. The result of that vote will determine the nominee and nothing else. It's always darkest just before dawn. Get something to eat you will feel better you realy will.

Long live Ron Paul!

Wow....

We're sending possibly 500 or more delegates to the convention floor....

And in your estimation it's over??

Cowards galore on the DP of late

No One But Ron Paul 2012!

Ron Paul acted like a stalking horse for Mitt Romney


I agree on that point, based on Ron Paul's own transparent behavior (hard attacks on all the other candidates, and yet nothing but wimpy, say-nothing, non-challenge approach against Mitt Romney).

But NO I disagree: Any policy and platform "promises" are totally meaningless and irrelevant here.

Policy and platform "promises" mean nothing. When in all of history has either Political Party ever followed what was either said or not said in some meaningless "Platform document"?

None of these office holders even uphold the Law of The Land (The U.S. Constitution) much less any "Party Platform" trivia. This is just eye-candy to distract people, and has nothing whatsoever to do with how this sick Country is governed.

It is governed by The Bankers.
It is governed by The CFR.
It is governed by Wall Street.
It is governed by The Oil Corporations.
It is governed by The Insurance Companies.
It is governed by The Military Industial Complex.
It is governed by The CIA.
It is governed by The WTO.
It is governed by The Trilateral Commission.
It is governed by The Bilderberg Club.
It is governed by the U.S. Corporate Media.
It is governed by The Rothschilds, The Rockefellers, and The Robber Barons.

Policy and platform "promises" are NOT the next phase of the Revolution. They are worthless unenforcible cynical distractions.

We needed a candidate that would directly and relentlessly challenge Mitt Romney. We needed a fighter. We needed an Andrew Jackson.

We got a gutless quitter at the most critical hour instead.

Excellent

Well said!!!!

Patriots do not quit.

Patriots do not quit. Patriots do not vote for someone who is against the constitution. I am sorry my friend but you are a quitter and not a true paulite.

Freedom

read the mans words

He just told us it is over. I know it is painful. But he wants us to move on. I have not quit. Dr Paul is moving on.

I disagree

with you that the campaign is over. I disagree that Ron Paul doesn't want to win. All that aside, the reason why they were not hostile to Romney is to give the sheep the illusion of choice. "Here flock, you can have your choice between white Obama and black Obama". DUH lol

that did not work.

Romney is rising in polls relative to obama.

make sure

you collect your sub for posting this before next week.Don't think the MSM is going to stay silent when mitts Ponzi scheme partner is sentenced

Then he'll rise

because of the idiots who don't realize that Rombama and Obama are indistinguishable. What good is voting for a white Obama?
