I "killed" the messenger last night

I received a call last night from the campaign requesting a donation of $1000.00. I agreed to donate on one condition. I told the individual in not so polite terms that the grand would be forth coming once I was assured that Jessie Benton was in no way involved in the campaign and that he has reimbursed the campaign all the monies he has extracted from it. I explained that I felt Benton was the individual most responsible for the campaign losing it's momentum and that he is a traitor to the cause. I kind of felt sorry for the guy on the other end of the line who didn't have a clue.

If we find

out there is a good reason to donate again, I will be happy to do so.

Quick question:

Does Ron Paul spew hate and verbal abuse?

Ron Paul - Intellectual hero

Dunno why people down-voted

Dunno why people down-voted this comment.

It's so easy to be a jerk when it's anonymous, isn't it? People need to not act like savages succumbing to every invitation to anger.

Good lord. Just be polite and

Good lord. Just be polite and say no. Seriously. You are acting like a child, blaming Benton and all about the whole campaign. Go read Aesopes sour grapes.


The blame game is for politicians.

When are people going to

wake up and realize this is a business? Good post OP and good for you. I received a call from C4L this morning. I saw this all along. Ron Paul did what he could and did good for this country. From here on out it will be business, business, business. Time to stop this crap.

Oh, and on the Benton thing. Im so tired of it. There was only one man in charge and that was RP. I will not blame him, but you dont get away with what Benton, et-all got away with, without the boss knowing. If you want to believe otherwise, then well, good luck to you, but even at the rally Benton was praised as a genius. Time for people to get a grip.

Why the hell are they still asking for money anyway???

The effing nomination is TODAY.

Legal fees. Other RP endorsed candidates.

There is only one that we know is going back to the Senate next year.

The House is up for grabs. We may end up with none in the House.

Those were my thoughts too.

I didn't think he was allowed to run for 3rd party because of the "sour grapes" rules in some states.


did you ever think maybe Ron is planning a third party run?
no you didnt.
do you ever think before you post or are you a loon 24/7?

"OH NO! He has a SON?" Neoconservatives and Liberals EVERYWHERE!

I don't think Ron Paul will plan a 3rd party run

To me, his most dedicated followers joined the GOP, took committee seats and ran for office in the GOP because that was the party he chose. In 07/08 I refused to join the GOP and the campaign marginalized me, didn't matter what my contributions were, what my experience was working on Indy and third party campaigns.. they didn't want to hear it or have anything to do with that.

I saw the same thing this election.

I really don't think Ron Paul is going to abandon those people who are now seated in the GOP. I actually got sick when I joined the GOP, that is how much I really didn't want to join the GOP.

He has been a Republican for 24 years. To invite those who didn't want to be Republican into HIS party, and then leave us.. He would make us victims of much riduclue and harrassment from within the GOP, the Democratic Party in our own communities.

I really don't believe he would set us up to be felled like that.

You are a rude rude person.

You need to apologize to Pawnstorm. Stop attacking people. We all have a right to our opinions. At least we are supposed to be supporting freedom and liberty and not constantly attacking each other. If there is a 3rd party run in the planning, they need to say so at the beginning of a call asking for even more money.

Thanks RP Revolutionist - If they were referring to me.

I did got a call from Campaign For Liberty today which I have no problem with.

I told them I already am a diehard Ron Paul fan and they were cool with that.

I do believe in donating to C4L, and to this site, but I have to wonder why the campaign would still be asking for money.

I heard recently they still had 2.5 mil in the bank and Dr. Paul is not running for any office anymore.

If indeed they have some special political thing in mind, then they should preface their call with it so we know what we are donating for.

By the way - I've donated hundreds of dollars to the campaign over the years so I have the right to wonder why they ended up with so much money when it could have been used to go after Romney until the end.

It seems to me the campaign pulled up the horse right near the end of the race.

already... Honestly... Enough....

"Qui audet adipiscitur"

It was a rather lengthey

recorded call with Dr. Paul leading in and an individual running for a senate seat following up who was the individual seeking funds. This was followed by a live individual who was the one I blasted.

There are no politicians or bankers in foxholes.

Legal fees, so that RP can fight for his delegates?

Third party won't happen. That why the Koch Brothers closed that door by financing GJ.
