Tom Woods on the RNC Ron Paul "Tribute Video"

When we find out who negotiated this pathetic deal, maybe we ought to criticize this person, instead of pretending for the gazillionth time that it’s all part of a secret plan to win the nomination, and that those of us on the outside should keep our mouths shut, since we’re not privy to all the inside information, etc.

Amen to that!

There have been months of previously unreported, behind-the-scenes phone calls and meetings between Romney and Paul acolytes to try to build bridges and reach compromise agreements...

Paul campaign manager John Tate and campaign chairman Jesse Benton negotiated with Romney confidantes Ben Ginsberg and Ron Kaufman about how to handle the contested delegations...

So now we know who 'negotiated' this crummy deal.

gold = money
war = health of the state
liberty = prosperity

Allegory? Hahahah!

This is soooo comical!
As the delegates sit and watch the GOP-Edited-This-is-Ron-Paul-Video;

....They will be trying their hardest not to laugh aloud....
...There'll be snickers, hushed coughs, and smirks as they lay in wait to pounce upon the unsuspecting "Old Guard" with a floor nomination.

I remember the "propaganda-public-school-movies" I and my classmates had to "endure"......later on we'd be laughing hysterically at the attempt to foist such "fairytales" upon us.

This is right up there with:
"JUST SAY NO TO DRUGS"...Hahahahhahahahah!
This "article" is a riot!
Talk about making a mountain out of a molehill.

Thanks for a humorous morning.

Was there any more proof of

Was there any more proof of this 'RP Tribute Video' than just Rockwell's blog post? If there is I must have missed it.

what a joke

if this actually happens ...
and everyone isn't pissed about it - something is greatly wrong internally.

For the GOP to not allow Dr Paul to speak and think they are doing something special like this to accommidate all you RP supporters so you will vote for Romney.

This whole dishonest party is one giant charade.

Please have nothing to do with this.

when it is all said and done - vote third party.

So Tom...

You're telling me there is no Santa Claus?

toms right

Since Dr. Woods

Is now engaged in finger pointing, is it OK to now point out that he managed a complete failure of a PAC? Revolution PAC was a mess that raised a very sad small amount of funds and from what I heard through the grapevine - others under him misappropriated those funds.

Quit with the finger pointing Dr. Woods without knowing all of the facts, you should be above such conduct. Please talk to Dr. Paul (or whoever is involved) beforehand next time you feel the need.

Another former republican has joined the libertarian party.

Tom Woods

has been more consistent and steadfast in what he believes and stands for than any of the 'insiders' have. I think the facts speak for themselves....

"If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin."
Samuel Adams

So why the e-mails

asking for money to get the delegates to Tampa? So the delegates can influence the Republican platform...does anyone REALLY believe, with all the cheating and suterfuge, that RP delegates will have any influence at all?

I took off the rose colored glasses many years ago.

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.
Ron Paul - The Revolution

Setting a good example is a far better way to spread ideals than through force of arms. Ron Paul

FINALLY Time to endorse and support Gary Johnson

Really this has been apparent for months but the people here did not want to admit that the campaign gave up months ago.
Gary Johnson 2012-
and no I am not a GJ "troll" been here for almost a year and fully support Ron Paul and reality

Brilliant tactic by the RNC

Honor him with some Ken Burns effects shots of him with Reagan, some moving inspirational music, fade to black with "Service 1978-2012" and essentially declare that he is pushed off to retirement in a positive way.

Not sure if this is sad or so what for us. I can imagine regular ole neocons inciting his name in a decade the way Goldwater is bashed around.

DELEGATES.

Nominate Ron Paul from the floor.

isn't this a GIVEN at this point?

aren't we all going to attempt to nominate Ron Paul from the Floor? I mean I'm not hauling my butt to million degree heat and Confrontation Central to watch a smarmy "tribute" video. Sorry. That won't shut us down GOP - sorry.

Would hope it's a given.

:

Sad...

Folks, The more this plays out the more it becomes in your face obvious that they are going to use Ron Pauls Revolution and his idea's to make THEMSELVES look good/popular among the masses so they have a shot at winning the election.
I hope like hell you delegates take it to their ass at the convention because they are gonna do everything possible to make it look like the Revolution and Romney are United.
Please do not sit quietly while they do this garbage....

Bingo.

Bingo.

And what if it has, Shill?

Then are you going to change your tune?

allegory - ˈalɪg(ə)ri/ - noun - 1. a story, poem, or picture which can be interpreted to reveal a hidden meaning, typically a moral or political one.

That's Mr Schill to you.

I asked a simple question. Why not just answer it in the same straight forward manner in which I asked it and save the insinuations for someone interested in playing your childish games.

Ron Paul is the only

Ron Paul is the only statesman today, the only individual that could have sat with the Founders in the Continential Congress, the Confederation Congress and the Constitutional Convention. The rest of these bozos are so dumb and don't understand the basics of free government that the Founders would have laughed them out of the room if they tried to enter. These dimwits would make Alexander Hamilton look like an anarchist!

With this being understood, Ron Paul should be one of the main speakers at the convention. Any deal for less than this is truly idiotic. And I don't give a damn about instead getting Rand a big slot. It's time for Rand to stand on his own two feet.

Ron has not endorsed Romney

Ron has not endorsed Romney for president.

A vote for Ron Paul is a vote for Thomas Jefferson. A vote for Rand Paul is a vote for James Madison.

It sounds to me like Paul

It sounds to me like Paul 2012 has been 100% about the younger Paul "Rand". Even now the campaign is asking for a huge show of numbers in Tampa why? To secure Rands future?

If Ron is shut out of the convention I will Vote Obama... and all republican congress....

Not that a vote matters as we have all seen they flip it whatever way they see fit anyway.

For this reason, if I stll go

For this reason, if I stll go to Tampa, it will be to Paulfest not the official event. I'd love to hear Ron and Aimie Allen, but I cant' stand the thought of sitting on my hands as Rand talks up Romney.

I downvoted your comment...

only because you said you were going to vote for Obama.

nawww... don't do that. It is an option if you feel compelled

It is an option if you feel compelled to vote. The GOP needs to get a smackdown. I'm going to write in Ron Paul if all else fails because it is counted in my state. I voted tdd4ron back up.

You seem to be sleeping...

You seem to be sleeping... Have you not been around watching since Iowa? It doesn't matter who we vote for.. It only matters who counts the votes... Electronic machines don't count fair.

Then...

let's all vote for Johnson.

Why not see what that gets

Why not see what that gets you....

Who negotiated this?

One guess.

allegory - ˈalɪg(ə)ri/ - noun - 1. a story, poem, or picture which can be interpreted to reveal a hidden meaning, typically a moral or political one.

Judas Iscariot negotiated this entire thing...

Don't be surprised when Jesse Benton takes credit.
