An angry post about leaving the party.

I wrote the post while extremely angry. I have no idea how to delete a post, so after much consideration, I decided just to edit it out of existence.

Romney is a bully, a liar, a thief, an empty suit, who will win only by deception. He fits in well with the old established Republicans who are a warmongering, prejudiced, self righteous band of hypocrites. But we are the future and even though I'm angry at the treatment Dr Paul and his delegates have received from the RNC, I'm proud to be a part of such a wonderful group of patriots, who call themselves Republicans. Thanks for taking the time to comment to my previous rant. Whether you stay in the Republican Party, as Ron Paul suggests we do, or go support another, we are all on the same team for liberty in the rEVOLution. Each of us will spread the message across America and the world.

Romney gave his acceptance speech tonight. It was all platitudes. No issues, no suggestions of how to fix anything. We will succeed because we are exceptional and we deserve to be rich and prosperous, he said. Total BS, after what has been done around the world in the name of America, I hope that we don't reap our just rewards. He had a look of evil in his eyes. He has made it very clear that he does not want my vote anyway.

I left in 88

How anybody can be a republican after the 8 years of Bush's congress running the country into the ground and transfering 80% of the countries wealth from the people to the banksters is beyond me. Not a fan of Clinton either -his record on civil liberties was abyssmal.

Government is supposed to protect our freedom, our property, our privacy, not invade it. Ron Paul 2007

They say it's always darkest

just before dawn. But.

I can't find the silver lining just now, and I'm looking pretty hard.

We face an even tougher environment than Dr. Paul faced 30+ years ago. Our enemies include the media, many among the wealthy, the corrupt establishment politicians, and even multinational corporations.

Against such odds, how can we prevail?

It'll just prove to the

It'll just prove to the establishment that Ron Paul supporters weren't republicans anyway, A self-fulfilling prophecy, and their tactics got rid of us... Not good. Like Ron Paul said, we will become the tent!! Theirs a reason why RP ran as a republican all these years. because he is a republican, at least one of the historical sence, trying to restore the party, and knowing 3rd party tickets aren't effective.

Sorry ol' top

6 decades of sh&t but now your disgusted? Maybe its ok to retire. Us Ron Paul Republicans are not at all like the party of ol. We are the new republican party. Today showed an even stronger need for our neccessity here.
Just think of how many important seats we have replaced along this journey, and will replace with the guiding endorsements of Dr. Paul and others. We will continue to seek them out and vote them out. We must. We Will. You rest now..

Did any of you REALLY think

Did any of you REALLY think it would just take 4 years to turn this around? it may take 10 more years...

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

Don't really have an

Don't really have an affiliation to a party, just to liberty-minded politicians.

I'm gone

The Republican party proved today that the party bosses roots are dug SO DEEPLY, that not even obvious vote manipulation can be stopped. Romney was their guy. Nothing could stop it. Nothing and nobody would stop it.

I will not be a part of this party. I'm not tied to the name "Republican." All you guys dedicated to reforming the Republican Party.... WHY?!?! It's a name. Pave the path in a new party. Pioneer a new trail. It's what the Founders did. It's what I'm doing.

"When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation."

I'm dissolving political bands with the Republican Party.

I keep my friends close

and my enemies closer. The best way to get revenge on the GOP establishment, is to stay in the party, support new faces and real change and never donate money. In the general election, vote 3rd party. Leaving the party might make you feel good, but then you're no longer a threat, and the only way to get the attention of the status quo is to be a threat (and we have their attention).

But as you said.. continue

But as you said.. continue supporting GOP candidates. Because, that IS what they want you to do. Stay in the party, not have a voice and vote for the people they tell you to vote for.

Don't just threaten it.. do

Don't just threaten it.. do it. And then post pics for everyone to see as I did:

We need you brother

Don't give up. After all this progress -- nothing the libertarian movement has ever done politically has even come close -- we cannot let them win. Let's build on what we've won. Stick with us. Don't be a summer soldier!

Not me

Flight or fight.

I'm in the good fight.

Occupy the GOP committee meetings. FIGHT.. this is no time to run away, that's what they want you to do.

Amen to that, Granger!

Ron Paul is My Congressman

He's the one who best represents me.

That said, I would like to invite anyone who can't stomach their local GOP to join the LP (if there is a group near you).

The way the GOP operates is not new; it has only been exposed so clearly because we now have the Internet and because of the Ron Paul campaign. I gave up being in one of the dominant parties a long time ago.

If you are in a state or region where the freedom fighters made inroads in the GOP or where they were welcomed, you might want to stay there, but feel free to use Gary Johnson as a protest vote.

The real fight will be in Congress, since that's the body that needs to grow a backbone and stop these out of control executives.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

I can't stomach the LP

We have 71 (seventy one) registered LP memebers in my county of 36K population. The closest LP committee is 3 hour drive, in another county, and meets only around election time to nominate. It's a JOKE, that's why they nominate Republican'ts like GJ (and why I can't stomach anymore of the LP nominating GOP for president.. and a guy who was running in the GOP...come on!)

Your job

is finished?

I'm a life long republican

I will stay in the party, but vote for Gary Johnson, that is of course if Ron Paul is not on the ballot somewhere. Ron Paul is still my president, and has been since 2008. His polite command is to turn the Republican party back to it's roots, so back to it's roots I must accomplish. Unless my president say's otherwise that is exactly what I will do.

Ron Paul is still my President

I was one of the first on the boat to change the party from within, but the stink of the accumulated shit in this boat is making me sick. Gotta get out of here for awhile. I need to puke.

Hey, I'm from Georgia

There is no worse stink then what we have at state level. Local level is a different story, they are nice well meaning very much asleep people. I guess it's just easier for me then it is for you.

If you want to make a

If you want to make a statement, sure you can leave the GOP. If you want to punish the GOP or actually CHANGE anything, then opting for a 3rd party is not the smartest thing to do. The GOP could care less if you leave the party. I think they would actually be glad, since they would have one less vote to be fraudulent about.

A 3rd party has no chance, cause the two party system has changed the rules in favour of themselves. You thought we've been treated unfairly? A 3rd party doesn't even have the chance to feel cheated, cause they aren't allowed into the race to begin with (no debates, etc.). Unless the election laws change, a 3rd party has no viable chance. And who gets to change those election laws? Right, the two parties currently in power.

This Wasn't True for Me

If I hadn't left the Democrat party (I was in California and they had more candidates to choose from in primaries) to register Libertarian, I would not have heard about Ron Paul last century (1995 or so), and participated in supporting his congressional races. Somebody has to keep the flame alive.

I sleep much better voting for Libertarian candidates, knowing that I voted for the best candidate. I feel much better supporting libertarian candidates (doesn't matter which party they're in).

My role in the LP is to make sure voters have the option to defend our liberties in every race. It's a good feeling and I know that I'm working with the "party of principle."

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

No.

Stay in the party.
If you leave now, it will undo much of what Ron has accomplished.

Become the tent.

BECOME the Republican party.

BECOME the Republican party. That's how we win. That's what Dr. Paul said we should do.

Blessings )o(

Become the Tent

Ron Paul did not say become the Republican Party. He said become the tent! Why do you think a big tent like the Liberty Tent has to have a GOP logo on it? Patriots come from all Parties.

Don't give up now.

Omaleta is making the establishment happy. They want us playing by ourselves in the powerless LP when we're making great strides in reforming the GOP.

Their cheating and stealing is pissing off the party regulars and grassroots who oppose corruption. It makes the establishment considerably weaker.

The Liberty Movement has taken over Nevada, Maine and Alaska State Parties and gaining influence in many others. We're putting a big check on the corruption. Yes, we've lost an important battle in 2012, but we're winning the war. We've got many great Liberty Candidates on the November ballot. We'll have more in 2014 and 2016.

Now is not the time to give up.

Don't let your ego get in the way of your power.

I also have thought about leaving BUT it's not the time yet. As soon as we leave we no long have the advantage of the threat. And one of the most important things I learned at Paulfest was the Ron Paul Inspired, libertarian minded people are actually taking over the the Grand Old Party in their towns, counties, districts and states.

What really scares the neocon party leaders is not us leaving the GOP but taking over and keeping the name. Investigate what the patriots did in Pahrump NV, and the states of NV & NH. We can beat them from the inside out.

The nomination process is just another battle in another campaign. It's not the war or the defining battle, that occurs in Nov.

I think we should wait until Ron Paul leaves the GOP and all leave at once. Now that is powerful. Even though we are registered as republicans we can vote any way we want. Don't let your ego get in the way of your power.

We are winning

Don't quit the party. Take it over, like Ron Paul said. "One day, we will become the tent!"

As of 35 minutes ago, I'm an Independant again.

I've also requested my account be deleted or banned from Daily Johnson. It's been real folks, but I'm done. LL....go fuck yourself.

I'm done. And the GOP knows

I'm done. And the GOP knows why. I will never vote again unless some kind of VIABLE THIRD PARTY is created!

America desperately NEEDS a new, "Independence Party!"
