Who cares?

The damage is done. I'm sure the Neocons are very pleased with Rand.

Another lameAss apoligists for something we all know isn't right

we might as well start listening to Rush, Hannity, Levin, O'Reilly, Beck and the rest of the ilk if start compromising and rationalizing our support of people who went against what we stand for and believe!! I wish Rand the best of luck but he left my camp for good with this move!!

Another show that is

Another show that is defending the indefensible. It's like all the liberty leaders are defending this. It is no different than Rush Limbaugh or someone else defending their leaders. It's just sounds a little different, but it's the same strategy.

It kind of sickens me actually.

What these idiots on talk radio don't seem to understand is HOW rand endorsed Romney. It wasn't just the endorsement - yes, we knew Rand was going to endorse. Doh!

The problem with the endorsement is that Rand really kissed Romney's ass, and even told lies - like dealing with the Fed and scaling down the wars. These are things Romney has publicly stated, over and over, that he has no interest in injecting into his campaign.

And there is no difference between politics and principle, although this is the "talking point" that is being spread around by Jack Hunter and others to deal with the damage.

People, let me say this loud and clear so you get it:

YOU DON'T ENDORSE HITLER TO (MAYBE) ONE DAY BECOME PRESIDENT TO STOP TYRANNY. IT DOES NOT WORK!!!

If our leaders in the movement wanted to kill the movement itself, they succeeded. I have no interest in being apart of this.

Totally Right!

You are spot on. Screw these so called patriots in the media that are siding with Rand. They TOO have been bought out seemingly. NOW WE CULL THE REAL PAULERS FROM THE FAKE! Maybe it's good that this happened so we could see who is left standing when the dust settles!

skippy

They can't kill it cause it'san idea!! The R3VOJution in us!Hell

even the logo came from us! Ron Paul learned all he knows from freedom fighters before him, and if someone really needs a leader then they aren't worthy of the movement!! Were sure to have lots of future fights on our horizons but some day these Ideas will completely change the world we've known to the one that all true RP supporters have seen!! JCM

I agree Ginger that no Paul

I agree Ginger that no Paul delegate will change their vote to Romney, but are you concerned that they(delegates) may not show up to the convention? That is my concern. I just can't wrap my mind around why Rand would endorse before the convention. Like you said, all the shenanigans the establishment/Romney was playing at the state conventions was turning their own supporters off, and they were coming over to your table. Isn't that a good thing? I would think we want them to continue to show their asses. It was showing who and what they really are! Please help me to understand.

Boy the Trolls are out Thick Today!

Hi there Romney paid trolls trying to sound so "mature and intelligent" unlike us REAL Daily Paulers who only listen to Alex Jones. You are NOT FOOLING anyone with your stupid "Oh you need to be wise like Rand and go root for Romney" crap! True Paul supporters will NEVER NEVER NEVER vote for that criminal OR Rand either now that he has fallen from grace! He needs to go back to medicine! Daily Paulers are on to you so get lost!

skippy

Alex Jones? Seriously? Not a

Alex Jones? Seriously? Not a very reliable person to listen to. As I've discussed numerous times on these forums, Alex skews the truth, does not use logic, avoids asking questions that would lead his conclusions to different outcomes, etc. I pitty the people that only listen to him. It's just as bad as the average republican following romney blindly, but from a different part of the spectrum.

Some of us daily paulers actually try and get real facts, and use logic and reason. We make up our minds rather than be fed by a figurehead who tells us (or yells in a microphone) what to do and how to think.

Apparently You didn't read what I said after my last post.

You didn't read it or you would have seen where I was just quoting the douchebags statements saying we only listen to Alex. (Dixie whatever) Read my followup before you post.

skippy

And One More Thing

We don't just listen to Alex. We listen to numerous people and read numerous articles which you obviously don't or you would be with us instead of working against us. You have to live in this world under the rats too! Do you think they will treat you any better than they will us? Think again!

skippy

Notice the difference in the conversation

when mature, intelligent adults discuss this and when the Alex Jones minions and kiddies on here try to objectively discuss Rand's endorsement. I'm sorry Alex, but, it IS time to play nice with the country club Republicans so we can stab them in the back in four years. If you can't defeat the RINOs and Neocons head-on, you join them and sabotage them from within.

To become backstabbers

and carry it on to do it also to the USA public in 4 years time.. Cause once you learn the treat of Backstabbing, it is just something that becomes part of you and you just cannot stop.

And remember

"Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. "

Or put it in another way:

"Unlimited power is apt to corrupt the minds of those who possess it"

Would you like to give Romney with Rand "Unlimited power". Don't think so.

"It is not only the slave or serf who is ameliorated in becoming free... the master himself did not gain less in every point of view,... for absolute power corrupts the best natures."

http://www.phrases.org.uk/meanings/absolute-power-corrupts-a...

"And remember, a half-truth is far more dangerous then a complete lie, because the complete lie is going to be discovered sooner or later - just a little intelligence is needed. But the half-truth is very dangerous, even intelligent people, very intellige

Good point.

But I must say that those of you who are "mature" and "intelligent" enough to see the wisdom of Rand endorsing Romney ought to have joined the Romney camp long ago yourselves, since that is so clearly the right thing to do. I look forward to you following Rand's lead, and hopefully heading over to the Romney forum, doing your work over there. Good luck.

We children here will continue our straightforward approach to truth and liberty.

Well said. Hopefully these

Well said. Hopefully these kids you speak of will put down their Kleenex soon and put their thinking caps on!!

A nation of sheep breeds a government of wolves.

IF YOU WERE TO ASK RON, WHAT WOULD HE REQUEST OF YOU?

So ask yourself, what DON'T "The Powers That Be" want you to do? Then lets do that, do this:

- Publicly Blog and Speak Support for Rand Paul.

- Publicly Blog and Speak Support for Ron Paul.

- Say HELL NO to Mitt Flip flopp'n Romney, HELL NO!

- Let these bastards know that it is RON PAUL or you ain't going to waste your gas in November.

How do you now separate Rand

How do you now separate Rand from the "powers that be" if they are in bed together?

They are not in bed together, Rand is giving them lip-service.

The same kind of lip service these insiders have given us for years.

Wise up and do what Ron Paul would have you do!

.

in bed together.....lip service......

childish laughter!

Lip service is

Lip service is foreplay.
They're in bed together.

"Wise up and do what Ron Paul would have you do!"

Wisdom is not doing what someone tells you to do.
Wisdom is doing what's right.
I don't take orders from Ron Paul and you shouldn't either.
You may find yourself doing the same things Ron does, like spreading the message of REAL freedom, but do it because it's right not because you are a drone.
BTW, his son is not doing what Ron Paul would have you do by endorsing Mittens.
Unless you actually believe Ron Paul would endorse Mittens?

This is an excellent and insightful interview...

Both Robert Scott Bell and Tom Mullen make very useful, relevant, and reasonable observations. I realize it is difficult to listen to reason when you are angry, but it is time to do so. Love the t-shirt slogan, "Keep calm and carry Ron". Peace.

Sweet Liberty

Susie 4 Liberty's picture

REgardless, :"don't matter"

I don't want to hear from Rand noh moh...

Susie 4 Liberty

and never did want to hear from him to start with.

Knowing that he was running for senate in a taken over sabataged tea party. Its like attacking a crippled victim. Now he does the same to his own dad. No morality thats the problem from the start. Tax is theft.

sovereign

Why

One of two reasons...

1. They held a gun to his head (off camera)

2. He is a total idiot

Not one other reason for it.. Period

.

Because no one of normal intelligence could willingly disagree with you on strategy?

The establishment is trying to divide us

As long as we maintain our decentralize model and we all become leaders in one way, shape or form, it will be almost impossible for them to destroy our movement. Keep fighting at every level, local, state and Federal and we will win. All they have to do to defeat us, is to eliminate our will to fight, we win by just keep fighting and slowly but surely like the tortoise get the positions in power and mechanism to remove the neo cons from the party. Let Adam Kokesh, Alex Jones, Jesse Benton, Rand Paul and other do whatever the hell they want to do. If they think that divisive talk and endorsements are good for them, then good for them. We do what we think we have to do.

Good Call

that is exactly what they do...Divide and Conquer. If we stand together and start getting all the sub groups like "gay rights" or whatever to stand with everyone instead of pushing their own rights. We will Win!

Do the odds determine our

Do the odds determine our course of action? This is not an assessment of investment risk we are looking at.

Know what we are up against but know who we are and know what we have:

My support for Ron Paul goes far beyond the message of liberty. I support him because is not a lesser of evils. He represents the need for the world to vote on principle against all odds. He represents what it means to vote for what is right now matter what.

Enough!

I'm so sick of talking about Rand! I'm sure he has rationalized his actions to himself and he will have to live with the consequences. He is, after all, only human...sadly, just another "politician" :(

However, I was INSPIRED to learn about history, the constitution, monetary policy, the Federal Reserve, non interventionism, not dictating morality, and most important: that we can't expect our government to solve all our problems...all from Dr Ron Paul. I don't regret donating money or being a part of the r3volution as I feel that I have gained so much!! Ron Paul has not endorsed Romney. Ron's speech at the Texas convention was AMAZING!! Ron has honesty and integrity. Personally, I just want to focus on what's right w/our movement...you know, positive energy:)
