Because he truly believes in Mitt.

Something strong in the kool-aid, I think.

Even now that it wouldn't matter and he had nothing to lose, he could have fought for the rules, fought for freedom, fought for his family, fought for the country, fought for the truth, and even helped to improve his chances of staying in the senate.

But nope, he stabs his dad (and the rest of us) in the back and then looks to Mitt and asks, "Was that good? Can I be in your party?"

If he were a cold, calculating politician, then he would have defended his dad for public opinion purposes alone. Who does he think voted for him in the first place?

Sadly, the only answer I can find is that he really believes in Mitt.

You Worked Hard And You Stole

the election and you deserve to be put in prison...Along with everyone else in our crooked, racketeering govt...


I believe that the actions committed and sanctioned by the Romney 2012 campaign are well within the realm of crime and felony. Assault and battery, wire fraud, federal elections fraud, unlawful detainment, abuse of the justice system...Nixon would be proud!

What A Suckup!!!!!


Without Corporations, We Politicians Couldnt Get Rich

from their bribes and we couldn't collect enough money for our re-election either...

Rand up now.


Were the lyrics to that song

..."I don't know where I'm going and I don't care...I'm back in the game"???

Hopefully I mis-heard it on my computer.

What a theme song for the RNC!!!!

Voting for the lesser of two evils is still voting for evil.

I thought that summed it up rather nicely as well.

We may have just nominated Obama's clone, but hey... We're back in the game! :-)

The GOP "has let us down again..and again...and again.

It's time to move on"-Mitch McConnell

Ron Paul video just shown at RNC

Too short,too limited in scope,too little,too late. Screw the RNC. Hopefully Rand can turn around and really give them something to think about. There is still hope if nothing else.

gee wasn't that nice

throw RP a little bone ... glad he didn't stay to see that.
I did like hear the Ron Paul chants when Mcconell came out -
most likely why they stuck him after the video and not Rand ....
out of respect and love - Rand may have allowed some of that to go on a bit ... but then again maybe not. Thank you Ron Paul for all you've done and all you do - for being BOLD in Non Intervention foreign policy. (note: the video stayed clear of his stance of such things which has always been the number one foundation to all else) Much love to you Dr. Paul.

Vote Third Party.

RNC Jerks

Why not have Rand speak after the tribute to Dr. Paul? Wouldn't that have made the most sense? They trot out McConnell who doesn't even mention Dr. Paul, but got right into his "we're here to elect Mitt Romney" shtick. By hook or crook, this was destined to be a coronation, and they have achieved that.

I'll watch Rand, just to see if he'll step up for the liberty movement or not. Then, thank heaven, I won't have to watch anymore of this RNC crap.

Vote Third Party. Better yet, let's run an Independent, free from all party chains.

"Mitt Ron, uuuh"

"Mitt Ron, uuuh"

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

Ha! Loved it.

Fiscal conservatism, that's all of his message they want. If Rand won't expand the message, I am done with him for good. Let's see if he was just pandering to us at the Rally with his anti-war rhetoric.

No quitting no fading away, okay?

Just want to say something. No quitting no fading away, okay? We've fought too hard to run and hide.

That doesn't mean you endorse the ticket. It means we continue to grow in influence and promote constitutional government at your local level. (mainly Republican, but whatever party/group you find yourself in). Ron Paul people now control the party structure in Iowa and 50% or so in several more. Run for office and continue to support Liberty Candidates! Who's in?

Your comment would fit very well here:


You might want to repeat it there, radiofriendly.

is there any reason for me to stay registered as a republican now?
should we schedule an unregistration bomb ? sort of like a money bomb, but get out of the party on the same day?

good idea

keep me posted, the only problem with that is if it would disqualify you from voting on other canidates, I guess that would not be untill the next primary cycle in which case you could just reregister.


I guess people who got into party positions would want to stay to have an influence.. but for the rest of us, what difference does it make?

I'm in!!!

And i've been a lifelong republican

Read this and see if you can

Read this and see if you can keep from crying:


It just makes me feel even more

Like his life has been threatened. Everything seems very very off right now.

more fuel

for blowback! The more they act like tirants and show their true colors, the more obvious it becomes, and the more join our side!

Didn't make me cry. But, I do need to go

check my blood pressure right after get down on my knees and pay homage to the porcelain god

Disgusting. Absolutely disgusting.

That too.

That too.

Nullify Romney like they did

Nullify Romney like they did maine. it is plainly obvious the rnc/romney,gop est didn't follow robert's rule of order. So clearly everything should be nullified just like in maine but in tampa!!

Ron Paul 2016

So.... I'm looking at the YouTube GOP convention site

and there is a clock ticking down FOUR hours 22 minutes.
Can I assume nothing is going to happen until about 6:00pm Eastern Time? Anyone,.... .anyone.... anyone????

Thomas Jefferson: “Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that His justice cannot sleep forever."

Viva La Revolucion!

That is correct.


Ron Paul convert from the Heart of Dixie

folks, the minute ,they

folks, the minute ,they ignored robert's rule of order and did not have a division or roll call vote on the yay vs nay vote. which i think we clearly won. by rules before or after . the convention in whole should be nullified at that point by rnc rules, everything past that point is nullified by rnc rules. yeah i know the answer to this. rules do not matter!

federal courts? romney shouldn't be the nominee unless the rnc ignores it own rules of robert's rules of order.

if it is possible for them to strip maine , we should be able to hire romney's ex lawyers and have romney stripped! sounds logical! if the rnc/gop/us gov/courts were not corrupt.

Do what they did to maine and do it to the rnc convention!!!!
