Never Support Romney? What If RP is VP?

In the wake of Rand Paul's endorsement, I lot of people are loudly affirming that "We Will NEVER Support our Avowed Enemy, Romney!"

But what if he offeres, and RP accepts, the Vice Presidency?

Clearly his intention would be to garner our votes, then marginalize RP.
RP would count on that, and if he accepted, it would be with the attention of maneuvering around
their embargo to gain a potentially HUGE soap box.

This seems to me the smart, and likely, if risky, chess move for both Romney and Paul, and if they make it, what would we do?

For myself, I don't know - but... never say never. I'd be awfully tempted to bite the bullet. And this is what politics is made of. Yes, even Dr. Paul plays the game to some extent - he must - and so, perhaps would we, in that position...

I really wonder what everyone thinks...

NOOOOO!!

Given the smarmy pack of neo-cons that Romany surrounds himself with, as VP, Paul would not only have to go along with the neo-con agenda, he’d have to support it!! GROSS!! It would be a full-on catastrophe for the liberty movement!!

So no, I wouldn’t vote for Romney if Paul was the VP. In fact, I’d do everything in my power to see Romney lose!

Never!

Romney thugs cheated, arrested and beat up Ron Paul supporters.

ummmmmmmmmmm....

No.

Mitt Mitt Mitt

Just give it up dude no one wants to vote for you, the tv kool aid fed sheeple even only go along with you being forced down their throats because they think you aren't Obama. here we know better.

he won't be...

so, it's dumb to even speculate. He won't even endorse. Being vp means you endorse the leadership, not run roughshod over the platform and put bunny ears on the leader from behind.

Only one accident away

from the presidency? Would only take one truly fed up RP supporter with more concern for his children's future than his own life. Romney would never risk that.

I would WRITE IN Ron Paul for PRESIDENT

If its fixed so that mitts win and he had ron as the VP then so be it but I would not support a mitt romney just in hopes of having Ron Paul attempt to change / fix something as VP.

The people need to change as in all of us Americans as to what the role of government should be, just like Ron has told us many times before.

I do not think that the President OR the Vice President should have any power over the people and I honestly see Ron honoring that and leaving us alone BUT what pull could he really have as the Veep?

Anyone with knowledge as to what a VP can actually do. I just see everything Ron attempts to pass (can vps pass anything?) anything would just get railroaded in senate / congress anyways.

I am voting for Ron Paul but like I said, if mitt is gunna win and thinks that having Ron will help his odds then so be it BUT I think mitt needs to worry more about overtaking the minority and christian votes that Obama is going to have a strong lead on AND having ron as vp will not secure EITHER.

He will odds are snag up Marco R. or Chris C. to get the votes he is after OR someone with the HUCK bible belt behind him. Who knows maybe he will get himself CHUCK NORRIS to further get the bible backers OR even that one kid from growing pains Kirk Cameron who does the christian movies now.

American politics is just getting depressing is what I am realizing. We will get to the point of that movie "idiocracy" real soon it seems. Brawndo anyone? I heard its got electrolytes.

HELL NO!

I would rather vote Democrat than establishment Republican but Gary Johnson is still a real choice if Ron Paul doesn't get through. I would rather have a group collapse the financial system on services to the people than wars abroad. that is why i hope dems get the house back lol.

THAT'S

ludicrous. RP will never hook up with a neo-con. He can't even endorse him let alone run as VP. Why go there anyway? Is this a romney poll again?

Keepin' it real.

This has been discussed already

on this earlier thread.

It'll never happen. Reality is that neocons still control the GOP.

Hypothetical

I am going to wait for the Nomination, it is likely to be a waste of time to even think about this.

-I won't learn anything.

I have a question?

Hasn't this been posted at least 50 times with the same results? Thank you for your reply on the other thread Paul. Seriously, They are phylisophical analyzation in the least man. Cracker Jacks!

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

Hahaha.

It does seem odd that the same kind of question keeps coming back.

Is is a serious question, I don't think so. Was it asked seriously, I can't guess.

Here's a theme song given to my by spouse.

Yes I think CSN is a mainstay

Do you remember Sabbath? They were very opinionated about war as we know it. These kids do not have a clue to what we were about in the day man. I think they need to show their elders a little respect!,Lol.

Ozzie was wearing a bright yellow jumpsuit when

I saw Sabbath in Flint in 1972 at IMA. "I am Ironman" was on the hitlist.

The ticket was $6 about 4 hours pay. Ian Anderson is coming to the Fox in November to do "Thick as a brick". http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M9JEPeeohYs

In spite of all the bad mojo, there were those brave enough to question the manufactured consent. Things have gotten shinier, bigger but better? not so much.

I am in denial about oldtimer status. LOL

I will never forget Ozzie trying to work a microwave!,Lol.

That was funny as hell!,The man needs to go back in time for sure! Lol. Here are the lyrics to an antiwar song that came out long before about half of the DP was born. Same concert you went to, I went to on this end of the country Paul.

Luke's Wall / War Pigs

Generals gathered in their masses
Just like witches at black masses
Evil minds that plot destruction
Sorcerers of death's construction
In the fields the bodies burning
As the war machine keeps turning
Death and hatred to mankind
Poisoning their brainwashed minds, oh lord yeah!
Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to the poor
Time will tell them they are powered minds
Making war just for fun
Treating people just like pawns in chess
Wait 'till their Judgement Day comes, yeah!
Now in darkness, world stops turning
Ashes where their bodies burning
No more war pigs have the power
Hand of God has struck the hour
Day of Judgement, God is calling
Underneath the war pigs crawling
Begging mercy for their sins
Satan, laughing, spreads his wings
Oh, Lord yeah!

I'm pretty sure these were the Ronnie James Dios days?

Paranoid Album

It was an interesting concert. The auditorium was infested with red fireflies that moved among the crowd.

This year the kids are going to Ron Paul lectures and reading Mises and Rothbard. Maybe we weren't such bad parents after all?

I'll listen to War Pigs tomorrow.

Peace, Man

Free includes debt-free!

I see your War Pigs

And raise you with Steppenwolf's Monster

Once the religious, the hunted and weary
Chasing the promise of freedom and hope
Came to this country to build a new vision
Far from the reaches of Kingdom and pope

Like good Christians some would burn the witches
Later some got slaves to gather riches

But still from near and far to seek America
They came by thousands, to court the wild
But she just patiently smiled and bore a child
To be their spirit and guiding light

And once the ties with the crown had been broken
Westward in saddle and wagon it went
And till the railroad linked ocean to ocean
Many the lives which had come to an end

While we bullied, stole and bought a homeland
We began the slaughter of the red man

But still from near and far to seek America
They came by thousands to court the wild
But she just patiently smiled and bore a child
To be their spirit and guiding light

The Blue and Grey they stomped it
They kicked it just like a dog
And when the war was over
They stuffed it just like a hog

And though the past has its share of injustice
Kind was the spirit in many a way
But its protectors and friends have been sleeping
Now it's a monster and will not obey

The spirit was freedom and justice
And its keepers seemed generous and kind
Its leaders were supposed to serve the country
But now they won't pay it no mind
Cause the people grew fat and got lazy
Now their vote is a meaningless joke
They babble about law and order
But it's all just an echo of what they've been told

Yeah, there's a monster on the loose
It's got our heads into the noose
And it just sits there watchin'

The cities have turned into jungles
And corruption is stranglin' the land
The police force is watching the people
And the people just can't understand
We don't know how to mind our own business
'Cause the whole world's got to be just like us
Now we are fighting a war over there
No matter who's the winner we can't pay the cost

'Cause there's a monster on the loose
It's got our heads into the noose
And it just sits there watchin'

America, where are you now
Don't you care about your sons and daughters
Don't you know we need you now
We can't fight alone against the monster

America, where are you now
Don't you care about your sons and daughters
Don't you know we need you now
We can't fight alone against the monster

America...America...America...America...

I can't match that bet,lol. I had forgotten about this one, Wow, way to real.

Personally, I would hate it, but...

It would best one of the best things to happen for the Liberty Movement in 100 years.

So, yes, I would support Romney if Ron Paul was his VP (probably not Rand tho).

The stupidity of your posting..

goes beyond any possible response, save for what I have already written. Give it a Freaking rest.

To quote Jack Hunter, from

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

And that's it...

Veteran -Dad -Artist

I think it would be one of the great things ever to happen

in history if rp was vp. Hopefully the negative reaction to Rand's endorsement will make mitt go the extra yards.

People may say compromise/sell out etc but if Ron stops one war in the next four years and maybe changes some minds on his issues at least perhaps we'd be moving towards our objectives rather than heading into i don't know what.

NO

I still will not vote for him bc of what the GOP has done.. If RP doesnt get it, I will enjoy watching the GOP and their choice for NOM lose!
