now growing inevetibly into every facet of the GOP turning it ever so slowly into the GNP- Grand New Party of Liberty. The DNA(determined new agitators ) for liberty are infected and infecting others with the Constitutional Liberty message which once bitten, changes men and women in a way that they cannot be unchanged. May God grant us stamina and boldness to carry forward the message that gives Liberty and see once again the Golden Rule guiding hearts and minds throughout our land.
With all due respect, I will no longer be a voting prostitute for Constitution rejecting harlots.
This is the biggest crock of phewy. We need to compromise and publicly endorse a guy who holds views in direct opposition to the Liberty movement in order to procure its advancement? We need to publicly endorse a guy who sees no problem with the Federal Reserve who is not going to 'waste his time...going after it.' In Ron Paul I saw a man in the political arena for the first time in my life telling the truth and standing up for his convictions and I was willing and am willing to do anything to support him...but more importantly the message. The one exception to this 'do anything,' is that I will not compromise the very principles the movement promotes.
Mr. Hunter's assessment is really a smack in the face for those of us who spent time away from home and family at state conventions, who are out regularly trying to influence the local political processs, who study Dr. Paul's and the Founder's philosophies, who give of our own money to support the cause. In my state (Maine), we fought hard and delivered Dr. Paul all the delegates, alternates and electors. We did this without the pandering political compromise that Mr. Hunter blesses in this commentary.
I hope some new torchbearer's rise to the forefront. Dr. Ron Paul still has my vote even if his own son sells him out.
To quote Jack Hunter, from 2010:
"If Mitt Romney becomes the Republican's presidential nominee in 2012, then conservatives will need to find a new party."
gold = money
war = health of the state
liberty = prosperity
Do you have a link for that so that you will not be accused of being a you-know-what?
No wonder Jack likes Mitt.
He's a political consultant now. Then he was just a regular guy.
The comment is at the very end of the video, around 5:20
I find it funny when all us Paul people scramble around and worry about what rand paul said. It has to be a strategy because I have not read anything on here that suggests that one of us will support Romney through his endorsement.
We need to get an early start on 2016: Support Rand PAC 2016
There is plenty of good in Rand Paul and he has stood up for many pro-liberty bills. We should respect him and realize that if Washington was made up of politicians like him our country would not be where it is at today. Yes he is approaching it in a different way then Ron but ultimately I will let him approach his way of advancing the liberty movement in his own way.
I have disagreed with Rand on more issues that I have agreed and would never vote for him. This endorsement of Romney ensures he will never represent the liberty vote. I am absolutely fine with that. Give me the Judge or the Jesse instead...there should be no compromise on defending and restoring our constitutional rights.
Mitt Romney will be much more calculated and potentially destructive in his approach to Federal government.
Obama is a sloppy in terms of management.
A calculated self-interested "assault" on America - which Romney will without a doubt hand us, will be much less harmful than 4 more years of sloppy Socialistic tendencies that keep backfiring on our current President.
If I were to go the road less of two evils, I really think Obama is a safer bet.
It's too bad I don't think with less of two evils any more.
Would be fatigue. The media would keep distorting reality propping him up. And the people would tune them out, and possibly wake up. This is also when the most dangerous legislation gets passed in "lame duck" terms. I hate Romney, I hate Obama... either way we're screwed.
Rand was DEAD WRONG to endorse Mitt Romney
You can apply all perfume you want to a pig. In the end, it's still a pig.
Another apologist and defender of the indefensible...
Hunter has just been categorized as another one who has lost trust and willingly given up their 'liberty virginity'.
Sorry, Jack, you spread those legs and gave away principle to rationalize and justify that which is inexcusable. You cannot get it back now. So be it.
One either stands firm on liberty and integrity, or one does not. Past actions and wild-popularity do not allow excuses or re-dos.
It is what it is and so it goes...
what happened to jack's article about agreeing with rand on the endorsement? i no longer see it on the official campaign website. is there another place these are stored? i looked around and didn't see it anywhere. or maybe it actually did magically disappear.
Ron Paul can't and doesn't use a computer. There have been multiple articles and videos defending Rand's endorsement on Ron Paul's official website.
I turned off the glowing box programming 2 years ago.
I hesitated to play this vid because it sounded like it would be programming propaganda.
I was correct and stopped it about 1 1/2 minutes into it.
This does not inspire me. Just like Rand's speeches do not inspire me. I just watched the video that Tom Woods posted. That was inspiring.
“With laws shall our land be built up, but with lawlessness laid waste.”
Tom Woods has a much better understanding of how the system is put together. And I really think he's a good guy. I really feel Jack Hunter betrayed all of us. And Rand, well, he said he would support the eventual nominee so a least he was honest all along. BUT he could at least have waited!
You don't have to like the endorsement, but you must acknowledge that Rand's aspirations would be finished without it.
All I know is that I want to hear from Ron Paul, NOT Jack Hunter.
I think, with all the hours, upon hours of work we have done and donating until it bloody hurt that we DESERVE to hear from Ron Paul, not Jack Hunter.
Sorry folks the more I think about how we are being treated, the more angry and hurt I feel.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not giving up on fighting for liberty. I'm just very disappointed.
I emailed Jack Hunter and expressed my feelings, for what it's worth.
"The Price Of Freedom Is Eternal Vigilance."
I don't know what you're about...I'm just as angry with the establishment as before the Rand thing. Sorry, if that changed for you; sorry, that you are bailing out. For us, we make the difference now. We will keep going--let our created unknown be the force against the two existing knowns: neither Mitt or Obama can be our next President. That's all you need to know and that how you should vote, period.
I say: if you can't make it better, don't make it worst!
It seems to me that almost unquestionably Dr. Paul knows nothing about what has been going on in the campaign the last couple of weeks: how his premature concession email has affected people (he may not even know that such a thing was sent over his signature); the weird "big announcement" UStream of Wead; the premature concession emails by Wead and Benton; the Alex Jones, Tom Woods, Adam Kokesh appeals; the way the grassroots have reacted to Rand's Romney endorsement; that the volunteer corps is horribly demoralized and in danger of melting away. It he were aware, he could not have given the speech he gave in Texas that is posted on this site. And even aside from that, I think almost anyone in his situation who knew what was going on would respond in some way: either defending Olson & Co., or neutralizing them. In my estimation, no one at all in his shoes would leave the situation as it is, and let the whole struggle fade in sadness and disillusion.
I think you meant to respond to some other post than mine. This isn't even on the same subject.
this note should do. I thought I saw a delete somewhere, if I find it, I'll fix it. Where is the delete on this? There use to be one.
The only way I have found for deleting a post, is to edit it, delete the content and subject line, and put an asterisk (*) alone in the text field. However, the edit function disappears after anyone has replied to your post, so it is too late on this one.
But you all need to clear the cob webs from you head.
Ron Paul DID NOT lose this election. It was stolen from him by the corrupt elites that control both the Democrats, and the Republicans.
The same corrupt elites that have chosen Romney to be the GOP nominee, that Rand Paul has chosen to jump into bed with. He is deluded into thinking he can make a deal with these people and still maintain his principals.
Rand chose to endorse Romney while his father is officially running for president. That was done for only one reason, that reason was to fracture and subvert this movement. I was done to try sway some of his fathers followers to vote for the sleazebag Romney.
Romney cannot win the presidency without a large % of the Ron Paul supporters votes.
Anyone that thinks Rand did this for any other reason than what was stated above needs to wake up.
I am going to make a prediction. My prediction is that this grassroots movement will be hit with another huge bomb before this is over.
Are we prepared to move this message of liberty forward even if Ron cannot win the nomination.
Are we going to compromise our principals? It is the one thing that unites us, it is the glue that holds us together.
All this fighting about the sabotage from Ron Paul's campaign, and Rand's back stab is really very healthy. It is a catharsis, and a metamorphosis and a natural part of the evolution of this movement.
We will lose many along the way. We have to come out of this without the need for a leader. That is what a true organic grassroots movement is.
The only people who are getting down voted these days are people defending Rand Paul, Jack Hunter and the Republican strategy. You know, the people closest to Ron Paul and the strategy he devised for taking back our Republic.
"Are we prepared to move this message of liberty forward even if Ron cannot win the nomination."
I don't know. I am. I never stopped.
