This is what I sent to Carol Paul about Rand's statement. Do you think she'll respond?Submitted by ausscyn on Fri, 06/08/2012 - 01:11
Rand's announcement has shaken us all to the core. The posts on the dailypaul are mammoth in volume and emotion. NEVER have there been so many people on the site commenting. Unless Ron has something in mind, and the ability to explain what has happened, it's all over. I can't, and so can't many hundreds of other delegates, afford to go to Tampa if we aren't even going to try to fight for Ron. We have no interest in singing, "Happy Days are here again!" or some other stupid song for Romney while the confetti rains down on us. We are for peace, liberty & sound money, and Romney is anathema to those beliefs.
What is almost as hard to understand, is that Rand has thrown away his base. Rand would not have won in Kentucky without Ron's base. It will be interesting to see if Rand is ever elected again. The base is in shambles. If this was all done so that Rand can be Romney's VP, well what a waste of a senate seat. Romney still won't get RP supporter votes, even with Rand on the ticket. Gary Johnson put out a beautiful ad today on youtube.
I guess one good thing to come out of this is that Rand is just ducky with Hannity, unlike Ron. Rand didn't even have the presence of mind to say, "Invite my Dad to your show, he'll come on." Instead, he just let Hannity's nasty comment go by.
What an awful day for all of us,
