Rand Paul: GOP Needs My Dad’s Followers

Kentucky GOP Sen. Rand Paul, a tea party favorite, said Monday that the party would do well to solicit supporters of his father, failed presidential candidate Ron Paul, if it wants to succeed in November.

The role of Rep. Paul’s followers and other libertarians in the Republican Party will represent a central focus of his speech to the convention Wednesday night, Rand Paul told Sean Hannity of Fox News, Politico reports.

“I think a big part of the libertarian Republicans or the Ron Paul Republicans is that I think they can help the Republican Party,” he said.

Rand, with the way the

Rand, with the way the establishment laughed at Ron Paul and his supporters today it doesn't seem like they need our votes. We'll take them somewhere else to ensure that the Republican doesn't take the office of President in 2012

No thank you Rand

I have 2 choices: Write in Dr.Ron Paul or sit at home and watch it burn. After everything I've witnessed this primary I guess it's all going to be up to how I feel that day.

November 6th 2012 I voted for Dr.Ron Paul

Rand is not Ron.

Keepin' it real.

Rand 2016 = downvotes

downvotes = threat for you

threat for you = good for me

Like someone said elegantly below

The GOP may need me.

I'll NEVER need them.

Or Rand.

The GOP doesn't need Ron

The GOP doesn't need Ron Paul's followers. It needs Ron Paul's ideas and principles. Then it will have no trouble getting his followers.

after the way our delegates

were treated for months and at the convention??????
after the way they continue to treat your father?????

uh, no way. We are individuals and we will think for ourselves - Romney will not get my vote.

Vote Third Party.


Rand... Buddy.... I hate to break it to you but this ship has sailed... We will now do everything in our power to make sure that criminal bastard mittens is NEVER elected....

Sorry, but you pricks deserve the country you get now...You had your chance....

It is time to shift our energies.

We had an enormous impact for Ron Paul and we were robbed and cheated of a fair election cycle, no different then any other election in the recent past.

Now we need to redirect in an important way. How you ask?

We use our internet strength's and capabilities to destroy the two party system by attacking both of them, thereby confusing the fuck out of the average voter.

Let's dish it back at these arrogant pricks!

Really, how cute, sorry can't help ya.

Because to me the GOP now stands for Grandpa's On Prozac.

Too Late Rand-o

The only way to 'solicit' me is to offer Ron Paul the candidacy. No one or nothing else would do. Or did you not get that memo?

Jeez give it up already. If you and your beloved GOP lose to Obama, don't be blaming us - we told you so, that Ron is the only one who could beat the Flyin' Hawaiian.

don't blame me

i woulda never picked mitt to run.

"The two weakest arguments for any issue on the House floor are moral and constitutional"

They may need me,

But I sure as S#I+ don't need them.

GOP needs my dads followers...

We know........

For Freedom!
The World is my country, all mankind is my brethren, to do good is my religion.


know that....

Rand, when you repent and return home we'll welcome you

with open arms and have a great feast.

Luke 15:11-32

Rand, are you serious?

Have you been in a coma the last few days?
How could anyone support these gangsters, liars, cheaters who have stolen our very vote and our voice for liberty?

What on earth are you smoking?

I am still praying, and will continue to pray to my heavenly Father to put this Mitt away ( and others ) as He has done over the years with so many very ungodly men who would not hear Him nor repent!

That wicked Naman comes to mind!

One thing is for sure, they have not gotten away with anything!

" In Thee O Lord do I put my trust " ~ Psalm 31:1~

Sleep in the bed

that you made, Randall.

It is not gonna happen, Rand.

You endorsed a criminal and a traitor. You can hang with him.

Rand, I love you and will support you and other

Future liberty candidates. I will not, however be a part of the party that so disrespected your father and all of the citizens who followed THEIr rules but were shut out anyway! I choose to not vote for the lesser of two evils. As a matter of fact, I am not convinced that Romney IS less evil.

~Your perception becomes your reality~

You can say that again

"I am not convinced that Romney IS less evil."

One more time

"I am not convinced that Romney IS less evil."

How does the power elite get

How does the power elite get people to vote for a non-entity, a fraud, a man they use to front for the cheats, liars, thieves, manipulators, and controllers that we never see? How do they do it? They do it by making us believe there is a difference between those two front men - there isn't. My description fits both Romney and Obama. The Republican Party is dead, they had one chance to wake up and they didn't.





Wisdom Strategies

The republican party needs to

The republican party needs to rot and die. I am ashamed to call myself a republican after everything they have done.

If we want to set our own rules, we need our own house!


Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

NEVER...Phuck Rand Paul and

NEVER...Phuck Rand Paul and the GOP!!

To us: Your vote counts! Vote! Us: Like it counted at those caucuses, right?

Sorry Rand

It just doesn't get cold enough for me to wear my A$$ for a hat.
In all fairness though, I'm sure that it must have gotten pretty cold for you.
As they say, live to fight another day...
