Hannity / Politico: Rand Paul Endorses Mitt Romney

Politico reports:

The endorsement came in an appearance on "Hannity," a little less than 24 hours after the elder Paul acknowledged in an email that his delegate total is "not enough to win the nomination."

Romney embraced the endorsement in a press release, calling Rand Paul a "leading voice in the effort to scale back the size and reach of government and promote liberty."

Official Press Release on Mitt

Mitt Romney today made the following statement on receiving the endorsement of Sen. Rand Paul:

“I am honored to have earned the endorsement of Rand Paul. Senator Paul has been a leading voice in the effort to scale back the size and reach of government and promote liberty. Over the past three and half years, President Obama has made government more and more of a presence in our lives, and Americans can’t afford four more years of the same failed policies. As President, I will reform the federal government and make it smaller, simpler, and smarter. I am grateful for Senator Paul’s support and look forward to working with him to get America back on the right track.”

It's not about Rand, it's about the idea - Ron Paul Revolution

Rand Paul or the Ron Paul campaign is irrelevant. It's about Ron Paul's message that count. Like what Ron Paul said "No Army can stop an idea whose idea has come."

Win delegates, win the GOP convention, and win the election. Do it to your country, do it to your children and future generations, do it to those people who were screwed by bankster, do it to those people who died because of these unjustifiable wars, do it to those innocent people who will suffer or die because of neo-con aggression. For God sake, do it because you are awaken and already know the truth!

This Ron Paul Revolution, the message of liberty, must not be defeated. Our world is in the critical crossroad, a road where people has liberty or a road towards where people are shackled with tyranny. America is a great experiment where true liberty exist but gradually surreptitiously degraded. Ron Paul Revolution awaken and galvanize liberty minded in restoring that idea.

This moment of history is in the making. This living generations has a great responsibility to carry the burden in fighting for liberty, not just because of its good fruits it will bring to the future generations, but the responsibility to fight for liberty give us purpose and fulfillment. Promoting the cause of Ron Paul Revolution is simply the right thing to do, simply we are free, and no Army can take that away from us.

Truth is treason in the empire of lies - Ron Paul

If Dr. Paul wins-bankers-est. political int. lose everything...

Just as it seems the good Doctor can win – instead, he practically concedes; and Rand endorses Mitt! It’s getting to seem surreal.

Does anyone give credence to rumors that their family has been threatened by goons hired by the bankers, that they may have had grand children or other family members kidnapped or that they’ve been warned that if Dr, Paul’s delegates refuse to be railroaded out of their rights and stand up to the established interests that Tampa will become a bloodbath that will be used to tar the liberty movement as violent and crazy extremists for generations to come?

It seems as if my worst, most paranoid, fears are becoming reality.

Someone... please tell me that I'm imagining things.

strange times indeed

These really are weird times.

You are not alone

In my darkest moments I have these same fears. I have worried about Dr. Paul's safety and that of his family since 2007. It is my worst fear.

Now I actually am less fearful that they will harm him or his close family bc of the unrest that it may cause. But I am more fearful that some of the other things you mentioned may become or already are reality.

I at least would not think

that Ron Paul would be capable of the speech in Texas if some of his family members would be kidnapped. That I just can't believe.
I think we should imagining things, but the positive ones.
I believe the people can beat the establishment if they really decide to do so, nobody can stop them if they will not let themselves be divided and conquered. Liberty is idea, Ron Paul is just a messenger, and I think very good and extremely consistent messenger, but it is up to the people to make it real. I mean really real, not just an imagination.

Thanks for the morale booster

Thanks for the morale booster - when the inexplicable happens, it's hard to keep my imagination from running wild.



The Bilderbergers Betray Again, Oh What's Next?

I suppose sabotaging Ron's campaign is the latest revelation here. All in a week they "likely" give orders to corrupt police to break Ron Paul delegate supporters fingers and a prosthetic leg, and make a death threat, and then finally the big GAG - blackmail Ron's son into endorsing Romney I'm guessing... If I missed anything please reply. Gosh the dirty tricks just keep rolling in here... If I were Ron I would need another week just to suck it all in. All the while delegates keep getting even more fired up because we are hearing the news and are absolutely disgusted by the mischief. So I'm thinking that if they are successful to stop the supporters from nominating Dr. Paul for president, then I guess he'll just have more time to travel around and make speeches to inspire and recruit more liberty supporters while continuing to fill stadiums for the next uhhmmm how many years maybe?

We Can Still Win This! We Are NoT Done Yet!

Ron Paul...strength of will, strength of character..

Great congressman and my personal hero...

"Never let it be said that we did nothing, that no one cared"

There is no one on Gods green earth like Ron Paul, No one!

Dear Presidential Candidate, Congressman, Dr. Ron Paul,

Fire your entire staff and man-slap your son.

Another Good Interview With Penny Langford Freeman

Another Good Interview With Penny Langford Freeman

I am having

a hard time understanding all the down votes. I get it, Ron Paul or bust. Well, its going to be bust. Face the music people, Dr. Paul has a very slim chance of getting the nom, Now I am holding out for a harding moment, but not holding my breath. This is a political revolution people, man up. We and RAND, yes, RAND PAUL, have to continue to play politics and beat the machine at their game. Who here really thinks rand is not on our side? seriously?

Rand is not on our side

if he supports Romney.

The only thing that makes any sense is that Ron Paul -- as incredible as it sounds -- is going to be Vice President for Romney.

That Romney and Paul have a "bromance" going is not new news. Imagine if Romney and Paul have an agreement whereby Ron can speak his mind as Vice President and espouse libertarian and constitutional views while Romney serves the New World Order. Would we Ron Paul supporters accept that? Think about it. Would we be better off with a voice in the executive branch versus none at all?

it surely

looks like he is not on the side of his father when he endorses his rival. Simple. But who from us really knows what this strange endorsement move means in this game?

Ron Paul Betrayed : An Interview with Penny Langford Freeman

Penny Langford Freeman (Ron Paul Staffer from 1998 - 2007) Exposes Ron Paul's Inner Circle

Ron Will Soon Follow-

Rand talked to his father about this.

Ron Paul knows that this nation now has a choice between Mitt Romney and Obama.

Rand and Ron both know unless they want to ruin America more than it has been ruined, that the only choice here is Romney. It is hard for me to say that, imagine how hard it is for Rand and Ron.

We have to remember, we are in an attempt to change this country that will take 12 - 20 years.

The National Observer

I have been at this for 20 years

I was with Ross Perot in 1992. The national debt back then was $4 trillion . United We Stand America and the Reform party all went away.
We need to see this through to the end.

Ron Paul 2012

Tin Pan

I would add

that in my opinion Romney has no chance to win without picking Ron Paul as VP. There are too many Ron Paul supporters who will not vote for him if he doesn't. And even if he would somehow beat the Obama without them, he would without them surely not be able to beat the establishment ruining the country anyway. The corrupt show would continue. Romney or Obama are just two simmilar actors, it is the people and only the people, who are cappable to stop the looting.


Obamney is not a choice.

Reserving Judgement

I have felt sick all day about Rand's endorsement, but I am reserving judgement.

Ron Paul Got FUC_ED! Trygve Olson and Jesse Benton SUCK!!!

I will not have anything to do with Rand Paul, Jesse Benton, John Tate or Trygve Olson..

You people better WAKE UP!

This campaign has been gutted by TRYGVE OLSON..That Son - Of - A - Bit_h came here and told Jesse Benton what to do and say. That stupid fuc_king Benton has no freaking mind of his own..

Jesse Benton was brought in by Trygve Olson to be a GD Patsy for this failed presidential campaign..

Trygve Olson did a masterful job conning the Pauls's and that fat frigin Benton...

Never again will I put mu trust in this campaign...IT HAS BEEN EFFECTIVELY GUTTED!!


You know what....I'm done!!

I won't play politics or compromise my beliefs.

I will not vote the flip flopping Goldman Sachs puppet Romney or Obama. No to Obamney. I'll write in RP. No more lesser of two evils.

Got home after midnight from the Texas convention.

And I will be there first thing in the morning. For our country and RON PAUL.

But I will never, ever support Rand Paul for anything!!! I'd vote for Romney first.

And I will never vote for Romney. Goodbye.

Trygve Olson and Jesse Benton F__cked Us!.... Sabotaged

They sabotaged the campaign for liberty. Olson is running the whole fu#king shooting match. Benton, the idiot in law never even heard of Ron Paul before 2007.

Rand's role is to get behind his father and help us unite. PERIOD!!

Romney is not going to give Rand Paul squat! Rand, you screwed your father, you son - of - a bit_h!

Why the hell did Ron Paul hire Olson and Benton. Olson worked for Rand in Kentucky. Now he is fuc__ing Ron Paul..

I say fire Benton and Olson...Right away!

Your campaign has be sabotaged...Dr. Paul

"We're in this to win!!"... No one but Paul!

Yes, but think about how unbelievable it would be to win this

thing despite any blundering by the campaign. Investigated first-hand the consequences of that blundering, which culled votes. But so what? The blunders of the Gingrich, Santorum, and even Romney campaigns are far worse, with Romney repeatedly violating election laws.

Did you see that resoundingly inspiring speech by the good doctor? You can be he knows the whole score better than any of us.

When Hannity put inordinate pressure on the doctor in his interview with him in 2008--about "Islamophobia" and more--the doctor fired off at the end, "Wait a minute, we were the ones who sold that poison gas to Saddam Hussein" that was used to gas the Kurds and Iranians.

Play this out with Dr. Paul and forget about the rest. Elmavini, you are one of our best assets.

Now, let's focus on proving the election rigging. Let's focus on the legal challenges, for the wounded, abused, brutalized, and for our delegates. We have so many enemies within but so what. Dr. Paul and his wife are our friends. Let's fight for them to the bloody end.

Let us not lose faith! We are the revolution! Here is why!

First off I understand the anger. I understand how you feel. That said, it is we who started the movement, not Rand Paul. As far as I am concerned Rand can say whatever he wants but that does not change a thing. Did WE sell out? No. Do WE believe in Freedom? Yes. Are WE gathering delegates for Rand? No. If the Paul's are afraid or got threatened trust me we can raise a security force the likes of which has never been seen to protect them. They just need to ask and we will be there. Simply put, the GOP tools who oppose us are weak and they are few, WE are many. Remember that! Our time has come and they fear us. And it is that fear which will destroy them because they fear the unknown and what could happen. They do not trust themselves because we have moles on the inside and rightly so. They know the soldiers have turned on them and support the movement of the return to Freedom and Liberty. Why be concerned? This is our time! Embrace it and get the delegates for the remaining States good people! Let's do this!!!NOW!!!

the establishment is feeling very vulnerable

I like how to phrased your comment, "they fear the unknown and what could happen." i.e. LIBERTY/REALITY! I think that we the liberty movement are also feeling vulnerable and afraid of the unknown and what could happen since this latest developement (Rand Paul's liberty). I've been pondering this all day then I listened to Alex's rant then the Rockwell and Hunter interviews. After that I watched Ron's Texas speech. I have taken a deep breath and feel better.

I am fascinated by the free market of ideas displayed on the Daily Paul. I think we will be able to keep the movement from capsizing regardless of the offical campaign. We all just love liberty too much to give up. I think we should put every last bit of energy into the final stretch of this race and go to Tampa and rock the convention with our amazing love and energy. I pray that the grassroots festival is very successful and upstages the coronation of Romney. Don't forget that this summer will probably have some very dramatic economic developments as well which would only make Dr. Paul's message that much more pertinent.

I just have to say this about Rand's announcement, WHY HANNITY? As if Romney isn't nauseating enough. I swear I can see a gleam of evil in Sean's eyes.
