This article will make your blood boil: "Ron Paul supporters are not Republicans and they should not attend the GOP convention"

....The GOP Convention is a Republican Convention. It is a Mitt Romney Convention.

It is not a Ron Paul or Libertarian Convention.

Therefore, it is perfectly acceptable at this point to ban Ron Paul supporters from the GOP Convention.

That's right. An outright ban on their presence is the only way to prevent the event from turning into a debacle. There is no legitimate reason at this point for them to be there.

I'm not surprised

by this. I just wrote a comment in this post
that the so-called Paulfest people made a huge mistake by inviting GJ. OPTICS, PEOPLE!!! Doesn't anyone understand OPTICS??
If you think the neocons can understand how anyone supporting a Republican can suddenly jump ship for a Libertarian candidate, you are truly naive.
I'm not happy with the GOP, either - I'm actually quite disgusted with them - but Ron Paul has been urging us to get ourselves to BE the GOP so we can reverse its destructive course. He, better than any of us, understands that America will remain a 2-party system for a very, very long time (if America survives) and we have the power to effect that change. Dr Paul has worked tirelessly for over 30 years and never becomes discouraged. He believes in his message, and so do I.

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.

I agree

I am no longer a Republican after being a Republican all my life and Im nearly sixty now Up your GOP im done with your liars theives and warmongers, but I am a Individual who gets to choose. Unless the Republican party has become some top down BUSH dictatorship.


A Republican is a person

A Republican is a person registered to vote as a Republican. A Libertarian is someone registered to vote as a Libertarian. But they're counting on their idiot readers to believe otherwise. They want their base to think that Ron Paul supporters are just LP double agents... or something.


Do Not Read the Article

This douchebag, Eric Golub, writes about Ron Paul all the time. He constantly lies about him and bashes him. Know why? It's the only thing he can write about that gets any page views. Washington Times Communities pays folks to write if their articles get views. This douchebag's articles go to the top of Google searches about Ron Paul every time and we click on the link and fall for it. We're paying this guy to trash Dr. Paul!!! Stop it now!!! Don't click on the link. Instead, sign up to write for Washington Times Communities and write positive articles about our cause.

I agree...

Do NOT click the link. And if the poster of this thread has respect for Dr. Pauls campaign, he would REMOVE the link and erase the entire thread altogether...LL, It's one thing to create a thread a couple weeks ago (which according to some longtime users here, seems to be something you've done in the past trying to garner attention) stating "this might be my last time posting on the dailypaul", and then to start posting pro Gary Johnson threads almost every day since then, but what your doing with these types of threads, I have a very bad gut feeling about what your intentions are. You should be ashamed of yourself, as you are intentionally trying to "stir a pot"..You're disregard for the candidacy of Dr. Paul is becoming VERY annoying, and I must say, I'm VERY glad that you are no longer a moderator for the DailyPaul. I can only imagine why you lost the privelege.

De criminalize Liberty!

no point in reading

After a little time at this, I have learned to just completely ignore any media outlets. Let them die the slow death. Even non-paul people are getting it. Just because people are not supporting ron paul to the fullest doesn't mean they are dumb. There is a swell of people that are fed up with mainstream anything...I love it.

Trampling on the First Ammendment sir-

Mitt Romney is not a republican, sir. Mitt Romney is the auther of the marxist healthcare mandate - Obomba Care. Yeah, unemployment went down in your state alright. That's because there was a mass exodus. The population went down. We're waiting to hear your comments on that Thursday if you can come out of hiding. I guess you want that 8.5 billion dollar ponzi scheme problem to blow up in September or October. This article reeks of tyranny. Screw you.

Interesting how

the article states that we "are not Republican", when Mitt Romney and the rest of the neo cons aren't Republican! I thought Republicans believed in small government and fiscal responsibility. The neo "conservatives" are the ones who "took over" the party with their liberal agenda.


Zionist Fake Jew.....say no more

The following junk says it

The following junk says it all:




Immoral funding of Military Industrial Complex by Federal Reserve and US taxation system must stop!!!! End illegal/unconstitutional wars! Preserve US currency!

This author needs professional help in my opinion, however,

if you open the link below it appears that others can write an editorial. Okay, instead of spinning our wheels on the DP, why not write a great rebuttal! Or write about the Mass. situation or the Oregon situation, etc.... There are wonderful writers here, so why not put forth a well thought out editorial that will really turn things around. I believe it can be done.



Hahaha, no fight, no get. Lay

Hahaha, no fight, no get. Lay down and take it and get more to lay down for. Simple as that. This should come as no surprise.

Not Surprising..Given Roger Stone

...(has been compared to a Carl Rove) may well be helping orchestrate the Gary Johnson campaign. Do some internet reading and a lot becomes clear.

Reminds me of years ago when my Mom worked for the 7-11 Sanford Corp. conglomerate. There was a real problem with 7-11s getting robbed. So they hired (once he got out of jail) one of the most successful 7-11 robbers to tell them how not to get robbed. He said robbing a 7-11 was like taking candy from a baby. They may scream...but it is easy to get the candy.

Yes it will get worse. Paulfest might be called StoneZone now. Mr. Ashman recently said that it was his understanding that when Gary flew to Houston to ask for Ron Paul's blessing, he practically threw him out. Ron Paul seldom gets angry. Makes you wonder what was said and what Ron Paul knows.

Is Stone in it to help Gary...or Romney? Does Gary even know Stone's real goals. One thing is for certain...every dirty trick imaginable is being used to pull Ron Paul supporters over to Gary and the real dirty politics are just beginning.


Republican Party Didn't Want Gary Johnson or Ron Paul

Gary Johnson has nothing to do with the Republican Party not wanting Ron Paul supporters to attend its convention. The Republican Party didn't want Gary Johnson either.

All of the above

And all above that too.

Can someone photoshop Eric's Picture...

It's missing something in his mouth.

Not the only thing missing...

What is missing from his mouth is nowhere as important as what is missing in the space between his ears!

Eric Golub has ISSUES--and I am not sure if they are only political ones!

For keeping it "clean"! ;-)

blood boil?


Just another POS that wants to dictate who we are and what we should do. Americans just dont understand freedom anymore.

LULZ If Romney loses vs Obama

LULZ If Romney loses vs Obama I think the neo-cons and redstaters will automatically blame Paulians, but why should they? They never welcomed us with open arms. Too bad the cheats couldn't play fair and too bad they refuse to embrace our very "conservative" platform. We have the most conservative platform because we are for the most reduction in spending, taxes, and government at all levels. I personally don’t care who wins between the two clones, either way I’ll have a good laugh at the supporters of the loser :-)

The comments section

...is absolutely priceless!

This one by Rosemary Malloy is great!

“Mitt Romney Resigns!”

“Mitt Romney announced today he will no
longer seek the Republican nomination. Instead, he pledged his full support to
Dr. Ron Paul, who he trusts implicitly to be the only viable candidate to
defeat Barrack Obama,” said a Romney spokesperson.

Mr. Romney’s spokesperson continued saying, ” Mr. Romney
is making the ultimate sacrifice, for the good of the Nation, so wants to be
remembered as the one that helped America be rid of Obama…as such Mr. Romney is
a true patriot…”.

Questioned as to the real reasons Mitt Romney quit — the
spokesperson said, “He only wants to be remembered as the Patriot that Saved
America… that is his only reason”….and “…none of the below were a factor in his
decision”…as claimed:

“That so many videos have been taped showing fraud on his
behalf that TV mini-series could be made running for weeks,

Or, that he can’t get 100 people to attend his meetings, while Ron Paul gathers
Real Americans in the several thousands,

Or, that he has broken rule #11 in collusion with the GOP, so he is about to be
removed from many states ballots,

Or, that his shadowy party in Nevada, is further grounds for his removal as a
GOP candidate,

Or, that he cannot garner enough delegates with all the cheating done on his
behalf so far,

Or, that All National Delegates are NOT bound according to rule #38, and US
election law, in Tampa,

Or, that his eventual loss to Ron Paul in Tampa will make him a national joke,

Or, that even if manages to CHEAT his way out of Tampa, his guaranteed loss to
Obama will make him an even Bigger Joke…”.

No, none of these are factors, according to Mitt Romney’s
spokesperson — “Mr. Romney quit the race today because he is a Patriot!”

And I agree, Mitt did the right thing — and we shall
build monuments and name schools after him!

November 6th 2012 I voted for Dr.Ron Paul
"We must remember, elections are short-term efforts. Revolutions are long-term projects." ~ Ron Paul

LOL, beautiful! I left two

LOL, beautiful! I left two comments in a row because I forgot something. But they don't compare to this work of genius!

Facebooked it and twittered!

RON PAUL 2012 * Restore America * Bring The Troops Home

submitted votes prior to convention

I suppose this is why Rmoney is trying to get signed affidavits from delegates?

"The delegates of all of the candidates can submit their votes any time between now and the convention. There is no need to do this on the convention floor."

"When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know Peace." - Jimi Hendrix

The guy has no idea

what he is talking about; traditional media spawned thinking with an immature attitude mainly focused on his own little ego. Such a dull thinker!

I am proud to be part of a movement comprised of intelligent impassioned people. There is hope as long as this movement keeps going. Thank God for evolution, and revolution.

Is this not true? Tell me if I am wrong.

Federal law allows each delegate to vote according to their conscience, and not because of some rule binding them to vote for "the nominee". It would appear that all candidates will start with zero votes and the delegates will vote for the nominee in Tampa. For now, there is no the nominee.

Ron Paul for President.

Yep.. I saw this yesterday

And my blood boiled.. We can vote for who they want and if we opt for other than your vote won’t count.. America has turned in to the United States of Socialist Republic America USSRA

Why? You knew this was coming.

Why, legalizeliberty? You knew this was coming. You and many here have pushing Gary Johnson's Fest on us for weeks.

Well, of course the media broke this now.

Top 3 articles on a yahoo search for Ron Paul, last 24 hours?

1. The Washington Times article, above.
2. "Ron Paul supporters will be targeted by Gary Johnson in Tampa"
3. "The Ron Paul movement is already breaking down"
