My thoughts on Ron Pauls silenceSubmitted by Peggy R on Tue, 06/12/2012 - 09:15
We're all wondering were Ron Paul is. Why isn't he saying anything?
Maybe his silence is louder than words. We heard Ron Pauls speech at the Texas Convention. In his own words (I'm paraphrasing here) They want me to talk about unity. How about uniting around the Constitution.
Then comes his Texas straight Talk on 6/11/12. I'll just post the last paragraph.
The CBO report was alarming to most simply because they know neither party will take the steps necessary to avoid eventual fiscal calamity. Instead, despite their rhetoric, both parties want to maintain the fantasy that “deficits don’t matter.” But the CBO report, combined with what is happening in Greece and the European Union, should finally make the undeniable case that economic realities apply even to industrialized first world economies. We must take concrete steps today to avoid having America become the next Greece.
Also this link to Ron on the Kudrow report 5/8/12 regarding endorsing Romney
Why is Ron so silent. If he was going to throw in the towel and endorse Romney why not come out and just say it. What is he waiting for?
We all know that the Ron Paul supporters have an unwavering faith in him. Have we ever asked the question how much faith does Ron have in us?
Why doesn't Ron come out and make a statement about Rand? My guess is he won't. Ron Paul supporters played a huge part in Rand's win in Kentucky. What if Ron's silence is about watching whether the grass roots will get behind Rand and vote for Romney?
We all know this is his last campaign. If he is not the nominee than he will not be running for Congress again. What would he have to lose by just endorsing Romney? Its not like he would lose our vote in any future elections.
I do not believe for one minute Rand did not discuss his endorsement of Romney with his father. I also don't believe that Ron did not offer some advice on his decision. If Ron was going to throw his weight behind Rand's endorsement he would have already done it.
So again why this silence? My gut tells me he is watching the reaction from the grassroots. What if Ron is waiting to see if we will embrace this decision. Why do you think we have been inundated with Romney trolls dressed in Rand suits on the Daily Paul. I mean just look at these posts. The Daily Paul is being flooded with them.
The ironic thing about all of this is we are all waiting for Ron to make a decision on this when in fact he is waiting on us.
