Stop Perpetual Wars

you bunch of liars and cheaters - a most corrupt political party.
I will be switching to Indie after August.

Wish Ron Paul was running Independent.

there is no one worth voting for.

Vote Third Party.

UPDATE!

From my friend in the committee meeting:

"That is our 'repeal not replace' amendment they just adopted. I wrote it expecting it to fail."

We need to send kirby letters

Lets send Kirby letters thanking him for standing up to the neo-cons, that we support him, and not to give up hope! No matter how many times they ignore him.

Ron paul was ignored his whole career, but thats part of why we love him, he never gave up. Lets remind our representatives that we support them.

Well, they jumped on Kirby's

Well, they jumped on Kirby's and others fruitless appeals for smaller government explaining that if 30 states have adopted a marriage definition the federal platform must also reflect that. What good is it to stand for marriage and not force our principles on other people? I guess by the same token we cannot force our freedom principle on republicans who do not want it. It was good to hear the voice of truth but I have to stop watching for now, too discouraging.

A deal has been made? To be

A deal has been made? To be announced later today.

Have any of Ron Paul's Philosophies Been Accepted?

I caught the tail end of the platform discussions. The Second Amendment was accepted.

Do we have any Ron Paul delegates at the Platform meeting?

He's trying god bless him

He is doing great,

Any idea how many libertarian views have been seen favorable by the body. It seems like anytime Mr. Kerby suggests getting the Fed Gov out, they vote to keep the Fed Gov involved. Frustrating for Mr. Kerby and from my stand point as well.

ron paul candy bars

Did any one see that. Did they just start eating ron paul candy bars.

In case anyone wanted to voice your disgust...

Kris Kobach is running for Kansas Secretary of State. Kansas should know that Kobach would like to give more power to the FED and remove power from the state.

National eVerify just got adopted. What a crock!

There is tyranny here.

Colorado Sharkey's Amendment was right on.

It made absolute sense, took E-Verify to task, pointed out that a limited government and free market approach would work and would have freed time, money and taxes.

Kansas Kobach is an Idiot..

His statement "E-Verify is free and the cost is absorbed by the Federal Government" A cost to the Federal Government is never free...

An Updated Platform is Important

The GOP needs something current from which to deviate. What a useless expenditure of time and effort.

Ding ding ding

best comment of the day.

We are for smaller government

so we set up a new federal government program to force business owners to "e-verify" their employees.

These people just plain stink

How do you not pass that?

*May the only ones to touch your junk, be the ones you want to touch your junk.*

Easy.

You throw in all sorts of garbage that takes away more freedom and even your own property, then you can pass any piece of legislation just so you can find out what's in it! Pelosi 101.

Mr. Kirby from Nevada is awesome

They should all leave and let a man that understands liberty just write the platform.

So sad, looks like apart from

So sad, looks like apart from him the place is mostly filled with Enemies of the State. Crap like this is why young people in this country have been disgusted & disengaged from political process for so long.

The tide is turning, what an incredible feat Dr. Paul has achieved awakening young people. He has already won. What is the probability many young people would've even tuned into trash like this 4 or 8 years ago - to pay attention to what the hell goes on, on behalf of our names?

The tide is definitely turning. These anti-American fascist SCUM will be rendered an irrelevant 3rd or even 4th party soon. Dr. Paul's message has helped young people in this country to disengage from the Matrix and reject this bullshit.

Every fascist person in that Politburo room mostly speaks for 50+ year old sheep. As long as we don't have an official suspension of Constitution OR a military rule, it's inevitable for these filth to become irrelevant.

Sorry, my friend. Sheep come

in all ages. There are just as many young people are all to eager for government handouts and distribution of wealth. Not RP supporters but, there are many, many others of all ages who thrive on socialism in this country.

Can we please stop with the senior bashing now? Seriously. All you do with that is make people like me irritated and before too long, if it continues, some of us seniors might just walk away. Please stop it.

I don't speak in absolutes. I used the word "mostly" and it's well documented that it is true. No offence meant to you personally or older people who are awake.

They just voted down at least two good ideas of his.

Alright, I'm done watching my quota of neocon filth for the next 3 decades. Can't take this garbage anymore, tuning off...

Have to say: I have an AMAZING amount of respect for all our fellow patriot brothers & sisters who sat through countless hours of caucuses becoming delegates, county/district/state conventions interspersed within such neocon filth.

Furthermore, I have INFINITE amount of respect for the good doctor! How did he manage to be surrounded by even stronger dose of such filth for over 3 decades & stay clean?!?! (Minister in a whorehouse as Doug Wead once put it.) I simply cannot fathom how he managed to achieve such a feat.

We are for smaller government

So we set up and fund a new federal bureaucracy to monitor the constitutionality of federal laws. (Call it the Fox and Hen House Act of 2013.)

Edit: Hey hold the phone. Congress already set up an agency that purports to monitor the constitutionality of federal laws. It is called the federal court system.
