Wait to the first debate

And Obama brings up something that FOX and the talking heads never have, nor has Obama yet.. . . . . .Romney's actual record. He is more "liberal" than Obama in most things, there will be a lot of people staying home in November.

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

Correct - all of us get

Correct - all of us get worried and think Romney might actually win. I think if he wins we really lose. We lose worse than if Obama wins - and I am NOT saying that on the margin Obama will be better than Romney. I firmly believe that Romney will be SLIGHTLY better than Obama but nothing will really change so why bother.

As to who is better, it is

As to who is better, it is probably a wash. Romney has some incredibly scary foreign policy advisors.

Sadly, most conservatives

Sadly, most conservatives don't care. Romney can do no wrong for them...because as one of them says, "even pond scrum is better than Obama."

And they'll wonder next year how they had such an awful

candidate, no one will admit to voting for him in the primaries, they never liked him, the GOP screwed us, etc. etc. then in 2016 they'll line up and do it all over.

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

Honestly the GOP may want

Honestly the GOP may want Obama to win and if they do good for them, very well played. Mathamatically there is no wayout but to inflate. IT's simple math. Obviously we can cut but 50%+ of the population has been brainwashed and they still get to vote so realistically if a candidate like Ron Paul won they would get destroyed by the media and soon enough in the voting booths.

Sometimes people need to hit the true true bottom before they change.

RNC Conspiracy

I am really amazed at how the RNC is able to get away with that right in the public's eye. This is not an election; it is a coup.

Easy

The media won't report it, just like they ignored the obvious cheating in the primaries.

Thank You

To the governor of Maine.

Jesus H. Christ!

What next?

Why don't they just round up all of Paul's delegates and send them to F.E.M.A. camps..Now that would be more like it..

I'm done with the RNC, the GOP and political parties..Not one more "Efing dime for any of these snakes...

Pathetic, shameless cowards...This is so unbelievable..I have to pinch myself to see if i'm not dreaming..

I knew they were crooked, but this is one that is not in the book...

You know - I am not so sure

I would be against them rounding us up and putting us on a reservation - at least then I could live around like minded people and would be no more or less free than I am today.

Now about that project to get everyone to move to New Hampshire....

Winston Smith, here we come.

These past 2 elections have only driven home the fact that some of us are simply unable to grasp the self serving mentality of tribalistic political parties. If you believe in individual rights and reason, how is it possible to lie and cheat your way into power. Who among us wants the power to tell another what to do anyway. We think and live for ourselves, they should too. How do we understand those that boo the Golden Rule. How do we understand parties that push a Bob Barr, John McCain or heaven help us, Mittney Obama. Thank you Ron for the Last Hurrah, but I'm headed back to my Familiar backwater where I can spend my limited time pursuing my interests, living by my rules; to hell with theirs.

One of beauties of this site with no one responding to your comments, you can reconsider your position and edit. I've gone from furiously dispondent to hopelessly disappointed. Anyway, Dr Paul's message and effort have reminded me of a poem I used to read to my children.

Dark brown is the river,
Golden is the sand.
It flows along for ever,
With trees on either hand.

Green leaves a-floating,
Castles of the foam,
Boats of mine a-boating--
Where will all come home?

On goes the river
And out past the mill,
Away down the valley,
Away down the hill.

Away down the river,
A hundred 'miles' or more,
Other little children
Shall bring my boats ashore.
(RLS)

Good Luck with the boats Kids, they're yar. stay free.

They'd probably take our money/production but at least the conversation would be good.

Amen to that friend..

You know what, the NRC political tyranny is a reflection of the overt tyranny going on all over America..

The microcosm of the macrocosm...

If "The Romulan" can do this before he is elected, what will this sick "F" do when he is in the White House..

God help us all...The rider on the pale horse..

Yes, and what will the one

Yes, and what will the one that is there now do when umbridled by re-election concerns?

I cannot believe the filth, it makes me ill. I thought I woke up last year, but I think I am still waking up. How in the world are our elections controlled by parties and not by the people. It is a fraud and I have been living all my life.

the elections are controlled by 'parties' that are controled by

corporations that are controled by huge, unsatiable appetites for our tax money. It truly is a cancer on this country.

EFF them and EFF the video tribute

I am friggin distgusted. Take the RNC and take the tribute and shove it up your asses. IF the campaign had any balls they would tell the RNC to take the video and shove it - or replace the real one with a porn video since we are all getting - well you know.

So...

the will of the people be DAMNED!

When Fascism goes to sleep, it checks under the bed for Ron Paul!

CHARLES CRAGIN From May :

http://www.themainewire.com/2012/05/leader-ron-paul-conventi...

Background on the mortal neo-con enemey we're dealing with:

...talks broke down with the Republicans, and the GOP chose to run former judge and Republican stalwart Charles Cragin as chairman. Cragin had presided at several Maine GOP conventions, but Tweed said he did not know him personally.

“I said I’d run as chairman, and Republicans could run a vice-chairman,” Tweed said. “They weren’t willing to make a deal.”

Tweed beat out Cragin for a chairman in a virtual dead heat, winning with a four-vote victory, 1,114 to 1,118. Cragin, a Romney supporter, characterized the commotion at the convention as “bizarre,” predicting that the Maine delegation may not get seated at the national convention.

Complete joke

There is zero chance I vote for Romney and support these shenanigans. This isn't even an election... Our voices are being muffled by fat cats on a power trip.

im with ya friend, however

im with ya friend, however rhetorically speaking, violating constitutional law is no joke.

violating constitutional law

violating constitutional law goes on all the time!

Embarrass Mitt

I hope the RP delegates organize a flash mob or some sort of protest to embarrass the RNC and Mitt.

I hope someone is making a documentary of this entire 2012 election, and exposes all this corruption and BS.

RNC is a bloody joke!

RNC adopts a Stalinist approach to elections.

This is terrible news

You guys are an inspriation to me, and many other liberty minded patriots. We met Kirk Shelley the night of the caucus, and when he came in, it was to a standing ovation and thunderous applause. You guys really won big, and it took cheating and dishonesty to keep you guys and us out of it. Hopefully this will add to a growing local movement where we can punish the bad behavior like this. It is also great that your Governor stood up for you, not much chance of that happenning here in MA I'm afraid.
Ginger, thank you for the updates and for uncovering the rampant cheating. You guys can all hold your heads high. I am proud to stand alongside patriots such as yourself and the rest of the ME delegation. I look forward to strengthening our numbers and working with you guys in the future.

LePage skipping GOP convention, cites flap over delegates

Will the national media pick up this story?

Let me ask you a serious

Let me ask you a serious question:

Do you think there is any chance in hell CBC News could break story on Watergate fraud scandal that Romney campaign & RNC together have perpetrated?

I requested Ginger Taylor to look into approaching foreign media, since all American mainstream media are prostituted. Haven't heard back yet, but still holding out hope.

If it's the right Ginger she is an expert on election fraud

She has been witness to it more than one election.

Keepin' it real.

Zero chance

The media gave up investigative journalism a long time ago. We have to be thankful to the Ben Swanns because they are an endangered species.

I hope that was

a rhetorical question - the media is not media - it is now officially state owned propoganda.
