Don't Call it Corruption! It's Criminal!

When the Actors in the various GOP leadership go to jail, maybe then you'll understand. That's what the Lawsuit is going to do. Enough said.

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

Two Things Come To Mind .........

1. It's an affirmation is not an affidavit. The later is a statement of truth pertaining to facts. How can you sign a statement of truth about an event that has not yet taken place?? In calling it an affidavit this state GOP has legally shot itself in the foot. How can anybody sign it??

2. If Romney was a Massachusetts Governor - and Massachusetts now only has 10% or 11% Republican support - how on earth did he get elected? Or was his term in office so bad that it drove MA residents into the arms of the Democrats?

It's a one sided story

I want to hear the other side.

Impeach. Recall. Sue. Arrest. Jail.

Do not let this criminality stand unchallenged!

Flood Them With Mail

Maybe we should set up a campaign to flood the offices of those who are suppressing the voices of those we elect to represent us.

Billion dollar campaign, trillion dollar bailout, can you tell me what's the definition of a sellout?

Reason 1 not to endorse

This is reason 1 why Rand should never have endorsed Romney.He is ultimately responsible for this shenanigans.Before any endorsement there should have a demand to "call the dogs off" To endorse Romney while your supporters are being abused by his underlings is conscienceless.

WE'LL REMEMBER IN NOVEMBER!!!

EVERYONE - WRITE IN Ron Paul if for no other reason than to protest and punish the RNC for their misdeeds.

Then, after Obama wins again the rotted GOP and RNC will realize all the support they lost by doing things like this.

It was bad enough to make delegates pledge to vote for Romney. They did it here in Washington State too so I know it's coming from the RNC.

They have become as rotten and corrupt as any democrat around.

I will never give them the satisfaction of a Romney vote in November.

WRITE-IN RON PAUL 2012

Keep your head up, you took two steps foward and 1 step back, you are still 1 step ahead of them. Phuck the GOP establishment, you will be the Mass. GOP establishment in a few years. Great Job.!!@

Massachusetts is only 11% Republican according to

Swan, yet the 'party' (woo woo) is pushing out young members because they support... liberty.

That's adsurb.

Or maybe, just maybe

the R and the D don't mean shit.
It needs to be changed to R and S
Ruling class and servents.

Or maybe the NWO wants to eliminate the GOP

This is the final cut and then we will have ONE Party representing the USA at the UN?

But these fools clearly need to be reminded who is who!

The phrase "Public SERVANTS" needs to be brought back into mainstream use!

Tie their pay

To the district they "represent" withhold when necessary.

The Strategy

...from the beginning was to marginalize Ron Paul. Ignoring him would cause a sectarian reaction among his supporters thus re-enforcing the general public's perception of him as an extremist.

This proved easy to do. They did it time and time again and for the most part Paul supporters fell for it hook, line and sinker. Perhaps with his retirement, libertarians of all stripes can face up to the reality that they do not have the numbers to take over the GOP, much less win a presidential election. That may change 20 years from now but if libertarians are to gain any real power they have to change their alliance from one primarily with corporatists, militarists and cultural conservatives to one with progressives.

Until that awakening occurs, libertarians will continue to be marginalized. The sectarian libertarian strategy has proven to be a total failure. The convention will prove this beyond a shadow of a doubt. Admit that you need an alliance and that one with progressives is the only viable one for producing real results.

I'm not allying with ObamaCare proponents.

"Progressives" is code-word for subsidizing favored lifestyles and empowering a Leviathan in the form of the federal government to institute behavior modifying public programs that meddle in the marketplace, rewarding those who modify their behavior as their betters would have them do.

I have no interest in that. Were that the only route to success - I'm for failure!

No need

This country is done, the destruction from those you call progressives will turn those against their own cause and eventually will rot from within aka Europe.

You mean regressive?

The only progress I want to see is a regression toward that dead document known as the Constitution.

On issues that matter...

On issues that actually matter, (true) progressives have a lot more in common with libertarians than right wing (neoconned) bankster bootlickers ever will!

Ideally we should have both, but if I ever had to choose between personal liberty and economic liberty, the choice is obvious.

As long as I have full freedom of speech, I'll give the socialists all they want in debate. But take that away, and I could care less if you repeal every federal regulation and income tax. Slavery to the rich or slavery to the state is still slavery. I'll take neither.

Anytime that the progressives

are ready to drop their ludicrous economic positions, and start wising up, they are welcome to get on board.

BigT

Would you not agree that economics is not an exact science, an art as much as a science? With this inexactness comes also the possibility that there may be more than one way to skin a cat.

If this is true, do you not think that there might be some middle ground on economic issues that advance both libertarian and progressive economic causes simultaneously?

Take for example, tax policy. What if we were to develop a tax system which was both voluntary (the chief libertarian concern) and progressive (the chief progressive concern)? Would you be amenable to a coalition candidacy which advocated such a policy?

Would you not further agree that such a candidacy advocating such a compromise in policy (that did not compromise anyone's principles) would be more likely to gain more votes than one which advocated either viewpoint without consideration of the other?

Dumb the first time you said it...

...dumb on the repeat post. Libertarianism and Progressivism are incompatible.

Who do you think gave us:
1) The Federal Reserve (1913)
2) The Federal Income Tax (1913, 16th Amendment)
3) The Open Primary (State Legislation promoting Party Raiding)
4) An Elected Senate (1913, 17th Amendment)

That's right! PROGRESSIVES!

5) "Nation-Building", the Vietnam War, and
6) Deference to the United Nations

LIBERALS! (Truman, LBJ)

7) Price-Fixing

Technocrat Hoover and Keynesian Nixon

8) Medicaid and other "Great Society" measures that presage
   ObamaCare.
9) Capital Controls, Gold Confiscation, & Progressive Income Taxes

Socialists like FDR, and Opportunists like LBJ

BS`

and here is why, This is what the states are for, progressives and libertarians have alot in common at the state and local level. It is the federal level that we are at war.

Progressives Federalize everything, though!

Take the 19th Amendment. Am I for womens' suffrage? Of course! Many states were already instituting it, though. Likewise, if SCOTUS hadn't meddled, Oregon had already found a nice substitute to pre-17th Amendment State Legislative deadlock and democratic shortage that suited that state.

More substantively: Cooperative Federalism and Competitive Federalism are not the same thing. I don't care how progressive another state is so long as I don't have to foot the bill for all their social programs! If they're confronted with the costs of their social meddling, and they choose to bear it, let them. The minority there can flee to more fiscally responsible, economically viable, and independence-respecting states where investment is less a sunk cost just waiting for the parasites.

I agree completely

we need to take our progressive brotheren back, they are libertarians, they just don't know it yet.

robot999's picture

I pledge allegiance

to Obamney of the USSA, and to the socialism for which THEY stand, one dictator over US, unconstitutional, with big-government and high-taxes for all!

NOT!
