Dr. Paul is taking all of us for a ride! For the liberty movement, it will be a great ride!

Why all the media-hype today about Dr. Paul "admitting himself" that he will not be the nominee?

Do they doubt what they have been spreading for the last 1 year: That Romney "will" be the nominee?

Why is the RNC still fighting the Ron Paul delegates in every state?

Why is the Ron Paul fest being blocked?

Why waste all the time and resources trying to derail a train that you are convinced will never make it first to the station?

In his last email, Dr. Paul hinted to something like the liberty movement will have around 500 delegates on the floor in Tampa, but that doesn't mean he is conceding! There are still delegates to be selected and that number can still grow! Does Romney really have the 1140 needed?

In my humble opinion, Dr. Paul is up to something.

Call me delisuonal, but I am still looking for President Ron Paul in the White house in this election cycle.

Dude, wake up. It is over.

Dude, wake up. It is over. Lew Rockwell even addressed this idea as being delusional. The campaign gave up at Iowa and ever since then has been luring the supporters along to donate money. Yeah, the message spread some but other than that we got duped.

Ron B.

On the ride of my life!

I don't know I'd say Dr Paul is "up to something", but we do know that a LOT of so-called Romney delegates are PAUL-First'ers. For this, we can only wait and see what happens in TAMPA.

I hope everyone has made plans and run for local offices, or we need to leave the GOP, en masse, and let them suicide themselves. Myself, i am now precinct-chair, which may seem like a low-position, but it has to start somewhere. IF I feel I am fought at every turn, I may decide to let them kill themselves.

We had SOME proof, but RNC does not care about Rules n Laws- they just break and then change 'em to suit whomever (not PAUL).

Dr. Paul In The House

I cannot wait to see what happens at the convention! We want Dr. Paul in the House!


Hang in There

I doubt there is one among us at Daily Paul that doesn't understand the enormity of the challenge of moving the American people from their current views to a new political approach. I am actually overwhelmed with what Ron Paul has accomplished in the past year. I've said many times here in different comments that I'm with Dr. Paul all the way to the convention and beyond that. Yes, I think there will be a "beyond." I don't always understand exactly what's happening but I have complete trust that the man knows what he's doing and I'm not ever derailed in my support over this or that. Hang in there, it will be worth it.

beyond that--

Yes, there can be life in the party, beyond the convention. But, it will only happen (the change of the party) IF we all get involved and essentially take it over. If we're shut down and shut up by the regular GOP (which we should have NO problem overruling), then we'll have to deal with it.
Thing is, those of us who've learned from Dr Paul will not be bowing to their whims, and if it's truly impossible? We will have to leave them; in the DUST.

Everyone must decide what is most important to themselves. If we really care about America, we will find someone else to take Dr Paul's place, and we ALL need to get behind this next person. We must also work to change this party, as if we do not, it will not be relevant. They accept us as we are or they are done.

Ron Paul will be the VP

Take this as a good thing. Don't be like whiny children who cry when they get cookies when they wanted cake.

Ron Paul as VP will be HUGE for the liberty movement.


exactly is being nominated as VP (which is basically a powerless, do-nothing role in the cabinet) a HUGE benefit for the Liberty movement?

Whats next now

I keep hearing ron paul talks about how he cant win due to not enough delegates but what im hearing here i dont know what to believe

John 3:16

Comes to mind in a way. Not that Rand is a sacrifice but that he 'is' sacrificing. He didnt have to do what he did today. He knew he would be scorned Im sure.

Mathew 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

Thanks to Ron paul and liberty movement

I now know what it is like the bipolar. I am happy, sad, anxious, nervous and depressed all nearly at the same time. :) lol

I understand

I have been on fire for this, I get my DP hit at lunch, anytime I have a moment to get any breaking news. It just means so much to me, and I know to everyone here. I can't help but be emotional about it. I surf this wave also....

me three ... and feeling stronger today

after feeling sick and terrible last night, I'm back up this morning with a fire in my heart for Liberty and Ron Paul !

I realized that without his clarion call (speeches) I feel in the dark. I have to get over this need to have a leader; but for now... I look to Ron for infused faith in the movement.

Ron Paul, Keep us aflame with you speeches! You are not alone!

Everything has become so

Everything has become so bizarre that this also makes sense. I admit that the scenario is always playing out in my mind, regardless of the information I continue gathering. It is truly up to us. Only our belief and relentless efforts will force the changes we desire. We are up against a highly elite and deeply established system. Together, in time, we will rise above this. Failure is not an option.

Yes, yes!

I keep thinking there's going to be something big happen. I wouldn't be surprised if it did. I can't believe there will be nothing more for now. I will not give up! They are starting to be exposed to the light and like the liberty blood suckers they are I believe they are scared. We've got them on the run...

Bumpy ride

Getting dizzy like on a roller coaster, what is the strategy of having Rand go on Hannity doing a praise fest for romney and saying he will endorse him? I'm not great at this game. Anyone?

rand and romney

It made me think that Dr. Paul knew it was coming and that's why he emphasized, 'why unite when it's for the wrong reasons?' in his speech. I think he was condemning what rand was doing and giving a warning to us to not unite with romney's bunch.

No way...sorry. But the RP

No way...sorry. But the RP campaign has been meeting with the Romney campaign for some time. Ron's not talking about uniting around him - he even said unite around the Constitution. There is no way he is chastising Rand for endorsing Romney...no way. If you really believe Ron is warning us not to follow Rand's lead, I don't know what to say.

This whole thing lately has been to secure Rand's political future. And while Ron is still ranting against NDAA and indefinite detention, Romney proudly stated that he was all for it. Hey, I guess that's no big deal, not for Rand anyway. And there is no doubt that Rand is endorsing Romney with Ron's blessing. Rand even said, the nominee has been chosen...it's over.

Romney may give Rand a VP slot, or maybe something else. But it won't matter because Romney is firmly in the pocket of the globalists and has been a GHW Bush protege for decades. So we'll have Romney as president while the drones are flying. And there won't be anyone, not Ron Paul, and certainly not Rand, to stop it. We are now officially screwed. It will just be by a different faction than the Communist Obama faction.

So nothing changes.

I could agree on this

He never mentioned unity in the past. Now he mentioned it twice, even closed his speech with it. And he was very furious, like never before (or al least in last half a year)

"Taking us for a ride" is a euphemism for fooling

Every time I've seen "taking you for a ride," it's been used to describe someone getting led on and fooled.

okay, say we get the

okay, say we get the nomination.

do the electors in the elector collage still support paul?

They support

who won the state. If you win the state you get the electoral votes. Obama won in 2008 by hitting the states with the most electoral votes.

Friends, Republicans, countrymen, lend me your ears;

"I come to bury Ron Paul, not to praise him.
The evil that men do lives after them;
The good is oft interred with their bones;
So let it be with Dr. Paul. The noble media
Hath told you Congressman Paul was ambitious:
If it were so, it was a grievous fault;
And grievously hath Dr. Paul answer'd it.
Here, under leave of Romney and the rest, —
For Romney is an honorable man;
So are they all, all honorable men, —
Come I to speak in Ron Paul's funeral.
He was a friend, faithful and just:
But Romney says he was ambitious;
And Romney is an honorable man. . .
If you have tears, prepare to shed them now. "

Indeed! Alligator tears!
Beware Greeks bearing gifts.

No matter the outcome........

I will vote Ron Paul, no matter what the GOP outcome, I will write in Ron Paul, 3rd party vote, etc etc etc "NO Matter" A vote for anyone else is just the same as an Obama vote


White House or BUST!

Yes, I'll bet he has something up his sleeve :) WE CAN GET THIS DONE, folks! Its our chance to recover America in my lifetime and I'm not giving up!!



Hopefully you will give up when he loses and retires, and the political libertarian movement splinters. Never stop educating yourself. Ron Paul introduced you all to LRC, mises.org, and Rothbard for a reason. RP is the gateway to market anarchism! Give up trying to "control" america. Control is for statists. You ultimately won't be able to use the state (the anti-thesis of liberty) to secure your freedom. There are alternatives. RP got you started, now keep learning.
