Ron Paul Should Leave The GOP Tomorrow!

After the move by the GOP to give the RNC incredible influence on who future nominees are, why doesn't Ron Paul simply give Rand his knife back and eject himself from the GOP?

I would not mind Ron running, just to teach the GOP a lesson. They wanna get dirty? Okay, we got dirty.

Ron's already announced he won't run for re-election in his district anyway. He's running to promote ideas, and a national ticket with Napolitano would smack the GOP right upside their head.

AND, he stands a better chance of getting in debates than he who shall not be named.

This is hardball politics. This is what happens. Ron accomplished more than anyone ever could have imagined. This wouldn't have been even possible had Ron been in a 3rd party.


It's amazing to me that all these people want Ron to leave the GOP when most of them would never have even heard of Ron if he hadn't been running as a Republican. Leaving the GOP would be a huge step backwards.

Disappearance is not an accomplishment

Ron Paul accomplished nothing in the 2012 Campaign cycle, unless you call voluntary disappearance, going away quietly, and being manhandled by Election Fraud and the RNC....an "accomplishment" (which of course it isn't).

Ron Paul's whole 2012 Campaign can be summed-up in two words: Never mind...

He accomplished far more back in 2007-2008, when he built-up a large movement totally from scratch, and embarassed and knocked the frontrunner (Rudy Guilliani) right out of the race.

If Ron Paul wanted to expose the Establishment, then he would do as the poster suggested and run 3rd-Party with his 7000-8000 sized crowds following him around. But Ron Paul seems to be under the misguided idea that nafarious criminals and Banksters (with hundreds of years of corrupt history), will suddendly become angels if you are just polite to them, and give-in to all their demands.

No longer a fighter, Ron Paul has made himself into a political irrelevency.
It was not that way only a few months ago.

What did he accomplish?

What did he accomplish? One thing I can think of is that now I know just how corrupt the party is. I guess he did reveal that to us. I no longer understand his obsession with staying in the GOP. Let Rand go and play the political whore and back Romney, while the old man goes on one last Presidential run with a national campaign that's designed to do just a few things - EDUCATE PEOPLE, BUG THE TWO PARTIES and HURT THE GOP.

The statement move would be

The statement move would be an organized liberty delegate walkout during Romney's acceptance speech. Those walking out would symbolize the end of the liberty wing of the GOP and the beginning of the new liberty party.

But is this the right move? Leave, or stay and fight?

I left the GOP

After 35 years registered R, I mailed in my change of party yesterday. I registered Libertarian. I am embarrassed to be associated with these war criminals and enemies of the constitution. No more.


Welcome to the Libertarian Party! I'm glad to see people realizing that few good apples can not un-rot the basket full of rotten ones. There's no purification for the stinking swamps of the establishment. Welcome to the frontier. Welcome to where the fight is.

In Liberty!

Good on ya! Welcome to the

Good on ya! Welcome to the LP. I hope there are plenty more that follow suit.

I'm in!!

I'm just waiting for the next Republican local meeting so I can let every neocon in that room have it. Here's is my denouncing being party of a criminal group, take your district captain position and shove it up your ass!

In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.

Dude, why?

He's going to win the nomination on Monday. Paul/Palin- never thought I'd say it, but she could force the brokered convention. She'll bring the snoozers/sheeple onboard the Paul train. If the delegates can't get the job done on Monday, I sadly feel there is no hope this election. There is just too much corruption. Hang on just three more days.

I have not had a RP house meeting yet...

but I plan to have a coffee station set up for RP supporters, a bar with hard liquor set up for RP supporters since 2008, and a heroin station set up for followers of RP since before 2008. (j/k) You are battle weary. I send a big hug to you and other long time followers. I appreciate all the work you've done. The videos and posts you've made have helped spread the word more than you know. Two more days now.

Dude, he only has 4 states now

Its over! it does not matter what Palin "has cooking". Ron Paul only has the pularity of the delegates in 4 states now. I wish it was not so but the RNC has made it that way.
All I wanted was the system I was taught in school, a fair playing field, my the best man/woman win. But what happened over the 8-9 months is nothing less that defrauding the american people. My faith in the system is gone.

three more days

and then lose your faith. OR not.

Ron Paul supports the

Ron Paul supports the Republican Party platform. There's nothing in the platform that attacks civil liberties and supports NDAA and PATRIOT. The platform talks about limited government. Why should he leave a party which has a platform supporting almost all of his views? It's not his fault that most of the politicians are RINOs.

the only reason that i even take the time to answer this thread

is because i recognize the poster's name as an original daily pauler.

fatlibertarian - don't be fooled.

the strategy the entire time has been to retake the GOP.

do you think your eye color changes when you register republican?

does your DNA changes when you register republican?

help us take back this country you puss.

help us take back the GOP and bring it back to its' roots.

Why take it back when we need

Why take it back when we need to destroy it?

Everything both party stands for needs to be under assault. This election should be a referendum on everything the two major parties have done to get us to where we are today. Bailouts, Stimulus, Massive Debt, Continual War, Escalating Violence at home, Police State tactics and Government regulations gone wild. No, we should be running to destroy the two party paradigm. We need our own TV and NEWS networks to run our own MONOPOLY ON DEBATES. Ron's idea to over-take the GOP has only succeeded in making the party worse. The new rule changes mean the elites in the party will have enormous control going forward.

My soul cannot take being a registered Republican any longer. This party is as evil as the Democrats and I just can't/won't do it any longer. The day they have a candidate I trust and support, I'll vote for him/her. But I will not be affiliated directly with this SHIT party any longer.

They can rot in hell, along with the Democrats for all I care.

Fat Libertarian,

I salute you!!!

In Liberty!

The Presidential debates are

The Presidential debates are as rigged now as conventions. It is not an open forum for discussion of differences between the candidates. The dems and repubs have had a lock on them since the League of Women Voters quit sponsering and moderating them due to ethical reasons (ie the two parties lack of ethics not the League's!).

The two parties now generate a contract between them for each debate. Both candidates review and approve in advance, the questions, answers and if the answer can de rebutted and if a third party can participate! Even the audience's Town Hall questions are reviewed and approved for content prior to being read by the person in the audience.

Sadly, it's a travesty.

If my need to be RIGHT is greater than my desire for TRUTH, then I will not recognize it when it arrives ~ Libertybelle


I have left. Those who still think the devil will honor his deal making is a fool. Hang with the deceiver and change it from the inside out DID NOT WORK. This is Not an election, It is an appointment brought to you by the International Banksters.
Compromise with the devil is not an option for me.

I'll be going back to the LP

I'll be going back to the LP Monday and staying put. The GOP can suck my grand ol p_ _ _ s.

I doubt they will let Ron

I highly doubt they will let Ron Paul in the debates. They won't even let him in the RNC. Ross Perot was the last one, he appeared to be a threat, so they changed the rules after that election so no 3rd party candidates can be in the National Debates.
