Dissapointed, But I'll still be going to Tampa..

Hey Everyone,

Im hoping for a little Liberty loving 'cheer me up'.

I want to be excited about Tampa, Paulfest, the rally he's having, breakfest with Paul and all of that.... but man, it just sucks that this campaign gave up on us. I've been waiting four years for this. I put so much into this as I'm sure all of you have. It just boggles my mind how the campaign and Ron Paul just dropped Me and all the grass roots like a sack of rotten potatoes.

Dr. Paul changed my life and for that I'm grateful. But how can I support someone's effort, whether Dr. Paul or anyone else, when he himself doesn't want my support? Not only doesn't he want it, but fights against it.

I'll be going to Tampa, but not because of Ron Paul... I'll be going because of you. You and all the other Liberty Loving Peaceful Patriots out there that are tired of living in a system that is based on death and destruction. I'll be going to meet all of you!

I cant describe the emotional roller coaster I've been on since '08. Thats when I first learned about Dr. Paul and awoke to the Truth. Somedays I felt like I was the only sane one in an evil and insane world. Other days I would question how I could be the only one who cared about peace and love, while everyone around me just kept living their lives.

It was you guys that always kept me going, It was knowing that they're still human beings out there that care about Individual liberty, peace and prosperity. That there kept me motivated. So even though Dr. Paul gave up, even though he put a halt to his campaign and the effort of the Grass Roots, I'll be going to Tampa because of you. You all were always there!

Your pinning too much hope on

Your pinning too much hope on election results. There are trillions of dollars at stake for the presidency, so I think it is unreasonable to think the powers that be would ever allow Ron Paul to be president. But I don't think the goal of our movement should be about election results. To me, it's all about expanding the base of libertarians in this country. In that regard, this campaign, as well as the one four years ago, has been a fantastic success. The libertarian movement has never seen the growth we've had over these last four years ever before.

There are going to be thousands of libertarians gathering together to celebrate our growth and our philosophy next weekend. I can't think of anything better than an event like P.A.U.L Fest to get fired up about the trials yet to come. I can't wait to be surrounded with like minded people while listening to fantastic speeches from some of the biggest names in the liberty movement.

Just booked my flight today, soo excited I can't sleep. Check it out: http://www.dailypaul.com/249498/flights-booked-c4rp-canada-g...

I'm going there to meet folks like you and experience the magnificence of the people and historic opportunity to show the world - we care.

Ron sparked an idea, this I am forever grateful.

My personal will and the grassroots keep me going.

See you next Saturday and Sunday in Tampa!

Remember, Doug Wead tried to tell us to remember just how much power they do have. He had to play possum to stay in it. It was never likely, but it is not over until the delegates vote.

It's not over after the delegates vote

We still have committee seats and our mission.


Love, Cheer, Thanks, and Encouragement...

..To you and the other RP Delegates and Supporters.

I'm grateful and appreciative for all you're doing.


Just REMEMBER and Re-ENERGIZE! Hang in there!

Good Luck! and Be Safe!

Thank you for all your optimism and everything you're doing to help the delegates.

I believe Ron Paul sold his silence...

Ron Paul is being quiet, and in return the GOP promises to pass his audit the FED bill. Unfortunately, his chips will be spent...and they will shoot it down in congress.

I wonder what assurance they could've possibly given him?


He spends 30 years not making any backroom deals, and now all of a sudden it's time?

I keep waiting for Ron Paul to drop the bomb,

to say he quit, to throw his support for Rmoney, to lie, to cheat, to steal like all the other politicians...but he hadn't. Until then, my moto is still "NO ONE but Ron Paul!", not Rand, not Jesse, not anyone else but Ron Paul. Honestly, a year ago, I never thought the R3volution would have progressed the far and touched so many people all over the world, myself included.

What happens during the convention depends on our collective intention. We will prevail if we believe it. See you all in Tampa where Dr. Paul will be nominated as the Republican candidate to challenge and win the white house!

Tampa or bust! Get there however way you can.

So you think Ron Paul is a

So you think Ron Paul is a loser? I say go to Tampa and do what Ron has asked you to do... Have a good time... The votes have not been counted... It isn't over!

Thank you, Peaceful!

You are an encouragement for the rest of us. I was a delegate from Hawaii to the Libertarian Party's National Convention in Seattle in 1987 where we gathered to choose a candidate for the upcoming Presidential Election in 1988. That was the first time I voted for Ron Paul to be a Presidential Candidate. I heard Ron Paul speak back then, was in the same room with him, and recognized authenticity when I saw it. We don't know what is going on within the campaign, and I certainly agree it looks confusing, but the politics of Liberty is very different than Politics As Usual. I believe each of us is supposed to do whatever we can at our position to promote Love and Liberty, and trust that God sees that we really mean it. It is an encouragement to me that you exist and others exist who are awake and get that words are not just platitudes. We really value Liberty and the Peace that comes with it. Now 25 years later, I am traveling to Tampa as a Delegate to do whatever I can to get Ron Paul Nominated as the Presidential Candidate for the Republican Party in 2012! I am looking forward to meeting you and all the others who refuse to give up!

blah blah blah

Will someone please call this crybaby a Waaaambulance. Really man who needs you? Stay home and nurse your vagina back to health. We can't afford your drama here or in Tampa.

It is interesting that you claim to be a hardcore supporter for 4 years yet you have given up on Paul a week before the convention. Not to mention you have only been a member here for two months.. and in those two months have posted nothing but divisive garbage.

I call troll.

They tried to bury us, they didn't know we were seeds. -mexican proverb

The campaign did not give up on us.

Ron Paul is forcing us to take our country back ourselves. It is our responsibility to participate in politics at all levels, local, state and fed.

If we have learned anything, it is that each and every one of us must learn from the bottom up, as the way our country was founded.

The campaign has limited and specific functions to worry about. Everything else is up to us.

See you in Tampa.

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

Ron Paul is forcing us to take our country back ourselves?

Um.. How? By leading us to think he was in it to win it, then dropping everything after Texas State convention...? Maybe your right but it's still a bait and switch.. Still a grimy tactic if you ask me.


By inviting us to take seats that we were NEVER going to be invited to take by the GOP or Democratic Party, by establishing a campaign that is facing a corruption that needs far more than grassroots to take, and by giving us books, messages, information how to work within and goals, such as ending the fed, repealing entitlements and taxes and sticking to the Constitution.

Ron Paul can't do it by himself. He needs people who are committed and willing to make huge sacrifices, stick with the program despite all odds, trust him, and do what he asked us to ALL do.

The grimy tactic is saying I LOVE YOU RON PAUL and not doing what he asked us to do, but switch to the first candidate who talks like Ron Paul but does not give you anything to actually accomplish the goals.

Agreed... on to Tampa....

Agreed... on to Tampa....

My sentiments exactly. I do

My sentiments exactly. I do hope we find out eventually why he made this decision, but regardless of that he has changed my life forever. I am now aware, awake, and armed with knowledge to fight for the cause of liberty because of this great man. If I could be in Tampa to support the cause I would. And if this event is video streamed live which I'm sure it will, I will be watching and chanting "President Paul" with the rest of you!

I know there is a lot to be

I know there is a lot to be frustrated with...after all everything important in the world is circling the toilet bowl. But we should be happy - no completely over joyed - that RPs message has taken hold and has a very large audience and a lot of support. It used to be that that we all thought we were alone against goliath. Now we know there are millions of us out there and that should give everyone strength.

I bet Ron Paul is overjoyed too...I'm sure its very validating to have inspired so many to his life's pursuits toward changing the philosophy of the country back toward its roots...after 30 lonely years of preaching to an empty chamber.

Romney won't win against Obama and nobody will really remember him (how many know much about his father who ran for president and his mom who ran for Senate? And I don't mean you die-hard wonks, but regular couch potatoes who watch fox and msnbc) But Ron Paul will be long remembered so long as we keep on with his mission to spread the philosophy and go after his policies like the Fed.

Very well said, Victoria

Thank you.

Keep your chin up and smile!

Keep your chin up and smile! Well that's what my grandma always said :)...Seriously thank you for everything you've done and I too understand the roller coaster!

It is easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled. – Mark Twain
Real patriotism is a willingness to challenge the government when it's wrong. - Ron Paul

I hear you, Peaceful.

I understand everything you're saying and I know how you're feeling, but don’t despair. We are only days away from the Convention and we need to be optimistic as we head for Tampa. This isn't over and anything can still happen.

Hang in there, Patriot!

National Delegate, Hawaii

Hey PA

I hear ya. I am sending some liberty lovin' your way. I figure, if only you, EBs, Ron Paul, and I make it to Tampa we will have a blast.

See ya there!

I understand just how you feel

All you can do is go full-steam-ahead regardless of what the campaign really wants from you. For the fact is, this is for you, your family, and country.

What in the world are you talking about dude?

What in the world are you talking about dude? Of course Ron Paul wants your support, it is you who needs to figure out what in fact constitutes support.
