Hey, Pawnstorm -

I agree with you about what scumbags the Republican party
establishment are - but I hope that you would vote for the
best Liberty oriented candidates whatever their affiliation
(or lack thereof).

As for writing in Dr. Paul, you might as well save the gas
or the postage stamp - it's essentially meaningless except
for whatever it does for your own satisfaction.

Personally, I think a vote for Gary Johnson would be more
meaningful, YMMV...


RON PAUL IS A REPUBLICAN IN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY.. you care not to be associated with that?

Why would freedom loving

Why would freedom loving people want to be associated with the GOP any more than the DNC? Durning the GOP convention all I see are rinos rinos rinos. Why would we want to be part of that? Yes we agree with 65% of the GOP talking points maybe but they are just talking points, they don't actually mean anything.

IT's funny you think its insulting to say "you dont want to be associated with the gop."

Ask Ron Paul.

I'm KNOWN as a Ron Paul Republican and I joined this party last year for RON PAUL.

Granger - YOU know what I'm taling about.

You said you're voting for Romney so you have no credibility with me anyway.

WHY are you even on this site?

Judging from your past postings, you are no Ron Paul supporter at heart.

I don't know what you are.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

Why are you here?

I'm FORCED to vote Romney, not FOR Romney,.,. I'm voting FOR my committee seat so I can hold the GOP accountable in MY county. What are you doing? Running away?

You have credibility with me, YOU ARE A COWARD!

YOU are NO Ron Paul supporter.. YOU DID NOTHING he asked you to do.

Run to Obama LOSER!

You're a troll Granger who has been bashing Paul supporters...

...on this site over and over.

Apparently you think the only other candidate is Obama.

Have you ever noticed there are plenty of other parties out there who are a lot more principled than the republicans?

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

You are an OBAMA Plant pawnstorm12

You have been working against Ron Paul RepubliCANs and our rEVOLution in the GOP FOR OBAMA since you came here, feeding doubt, spreading apathy, trying to team up with anyone and everyone who isn't a RepubliCAN.

There are 36 registered third parties in the USA, I worked with 7 of them for Nader on ballot access and open debates, so I am very well aware of other parties, who leads them, and why.

I admit I refused to join the GOP in 07 FOR Ron Paul. I admit, I tried to FORCE Ron Paul to run LP or go Indy. I failed. So when Ron Paul ran for president 2012, I made a commitment to Ron Paul.. if I have any loyalty, it's to and FOR Ron Paul. He asked me to join the GOP. I DID. He asked me to get a committee seat. I did! He asked me to become a national delegate and I did. He's asked all of us to stick with the rEVOLution in the RepubliCAN Party and I AM.

I AM A RepubliCAN and I AM principled and I will hold my committee to the Constitution and I will have them charged with treason if they refuse.


Either join or run away.

And yes, Obama needs to be removed and it's up to us to help Romney do that, and so I will.. but I will also be holding MY committee accountable because that's my job, and when The Granger LOVES someone, like I LOVE Ron Paul.. you don't mess with The Granger.

They didn't want me on the committee.. I got it anyway. tptb FORCED Romney on us to give us a reason to run away. I WON'T.

I'm going to remain FIGHTING for this Republic to be restored to Constitutional government just like Ron Paul asked me to do.

And what will you do... make excuses? Become yoda moth with cliches of consciousness and principle, because to you, that does not mean sticking with Ron Paul after he's been robbed? You gonna support someone who also robbed him of his message and name?

Yes you will,,, because you're not a Ron Paul supporter, if you really were, you would be a Ron Paul RepubliCAN and saying WE ARE THE FUTURE, not trying to sell me another party for losers.

You are a Troll. Just because

You are a Troll. Just because people won't vote for the progressive Romney doesn't mean they are Obama supporters. Again go reread Atlas.

You are not fighting for the Republic, you are a traitor. How many debt ceiling increases has the GOP lead House managed to STOP? How many?

The Granger is an @ssclown pure and simple. You keep saying they forced Romney on you, thus you are already making excuses. Can you articulate EXACTLY what Romney will do differently than Obama?

No One in the rEVOLution is voting FOR Romney

We are voting FOR Ron Paul Republicans to have the power to STOP Obama!

It's NOT about Romney.

Did Obama keep his campaign promises? NO Why.. Hillary Clinton has the committee seats.

Will Romney keep his campaign promises? NO Because Ron Paul Republicans will Force him to abide by the constitution.

Why can't you get it? Becasue you focus on THE PRESIDENT and NOT all the people who are elected, like Ron Paul Republican in committee seats.

You are letting US down.. Romney isn't running to win.. he's running for Obama to win.

one question


Christians should not be warmongers! http://www.lewrockwell.com/vance/vance87.html

What every delegate needed to know about Dr.Ron Paul was

right there in that 4 minute video. There is enough right there for anybody who is not brainwashed and delusional to know He is THE ONLY QUALIFIED CANDIDATE available at this time in history to be The P.O.T.U.S. He has the uncompartmentalized and integrated intellect to oversee the Re-constitution of our republic. We are so fortunate to have been taught by his wisdom and example. If that video had been shown before the vote things might have been different, but again, so much mind-bending has been going on since 1913.

With all due respect, I will no longer be a voting prostitute for Constitution rejecting harlots.

That just pisses me off (2)

That just pisses me off beyond words. They have the nerve to play a tribute like that after treating the greatest modern statesman in America like a piece of trash for so long. I could kick someones ass right now.

Somebody should go punch McConnel in his dick.

They think we are a bunch of worthless, indignant dumb a-- holes. They think we're a bunch of retarded sentimental baboons who will clap to somebody turning the lights off and on. They think we're mindless pieces of garbage who like to rub cake in our hair while drooling into our fat laps. There's no end to how stupid and powerless we are regarded.

This video, shown at this time and place, was a grand insult. It's a bully making you punch yourself in the face with your own hand while smirking about how stupid and weak you are.

I just can't wait until that Tuesday in November where I go to the town hall auditorium and get a fill-in-the-circle coupon from some 90 year old lady and I get to check off a name and put the coupon in a metal box and then pat myself on the back for being such an awesome coupon-filler-outer.

What utter trash. What comedy.

Where's Dennis Kucinich in the tribute?!?!?

He was as close if not closer to Dr. Paul that those other guys.
They had---Oh what's that word they throw about all the time about Republicans and Democrats need to agree on issues---Consensus! that's it! The had a consensus against military adventures to promote US Empire building.

Well, after hearing McCain's Pax America Manifest Density speech last night, we now know why. I'd bet dollars to donuts that 'ol John himself was on the video editing committee. Can't disrespect the military complex, y'know!

Why the negative votes?

Was I wrong to be upset that the tribute was only half of what the Good doctor stands for? That Dennis Kucinch should have been included to praise Dr. Paul's Anti-war stance? Don't tell me it's becasue I dissed John McCain!

No mention of FED or military in Paul tribute

Dr. Paul believes Republicans and Democrats are equally complicit in creating the national debt crisis. Most Americans agree with him. Independent Americans recognize that the Democratic Party is beholden to unions, lawyers, universities, minority special interests, and the other benefactors of government largess. They know Republicans are beholden to investment banks, religious groups, and the military industrial system. Big corporations are influencing both parties. Both parties are beholden to the corporate media and the Federal Reserve, the enablers of the crony capitalism that keeps the oligarchy in place.


This GOP is just like the pharisees . . .

They say "oh how wonderful were the prophets (Ron Paul, Goldwater, etc)of old", yet Jesus told them you Pharisees would have kill them.

Mat 23:27 (The MSG version) "You're hopeless, you religion scholars and Pharisees! Frauds! You're like manicured grave plots, grass clipped and the flowers bright, but six feet down it's all rotting bones and worm-eaten flesh."

Mat 23:5 Their lives are perpetual fashion shows, embroidered prayer shawls one day and flowery prayers the next.
Mat 23:6 They love to sit at the head table at church dinners, basking in the most prominent positions,
Mat 23:7 preening in the radiance of public flattery, receiving honorary degrees, and getting called 'Doctor' and 'Reverend

Nice...This is from the Message Bible (MSG) version


BTW: I don't subscribe to any of the Abrahamic history or super human stories, but I acknowledge wisdom when I see it...and, like nearly all religions, the Abrahamic religions has much wisdom in its text.

echo texashale65

"[Rand Paul] was able to espouse his father's general message about Liberty. He did it in a way that everyone could get on board with it. I think Rand is actually boiling the frog."

Snipped from youtube, texashale65 neglects to point out, however, Rand's omission of the Fe'ral Reserve from his comments.

Paul/Johnson 2012?

After watching that, why would anyone want anyone else as President?

That just pisses me off

That just pisses me off beyond words. They have the nerve to play a tribute like that after treating the greatest modern statesman in America like a piece of trash for so long. I could kick someones ass right now.

Truth before all else.....it is what will allow us to emerge with dignity and honor.

Though I am not a good christian

When it comes to Rand, I think what the Bible says is prescient:

Luke 9:49-50 KJV

...John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name; and we forbade him, because he followeth not with us.

And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not against us is for us.

The Bible also says

"Behold I am sending you out as sheep in the midst of wolves, so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves." - Matthew 10:16

When Rand stops fighting deficit spending, NDAA, TSA, military spending, the FED, etc. then we can bail on him but I think he still deserves a shot based on his policies and positions.

"Once you become knowledgeable, you have an obligation to do something about it."- Ron Paul

What a slap in the face

Hey here is this awesome guy who stands for what is right
oh yeah and...he'll never be president because we suck.

"Once you become knowledgeable, you have an obligation to do something about it."- Ron Paul

I thought the tribute was a

I thought the tribute was a sslap in the face after all they put the Paul movement through, eventually stealing the nomination from him! I'd much prefer this: a tribute to the RNC FRAUD!!
With a nice tribute to Ron Paul at the end...


Oh Boy!!!
I'm Speechless;-((
Nope one thought popping up, Last 2 brain cells fighting for control!!!!!
Here it comes!!!!!
RNC-Neo Cons SUCK Donkey???? oops lost my thought

PEACE, Liberty & Understanding

When Rand said that there was one man

Who could lead the nation out of their present predicament for one brief moment I thought he was going to say "my father Ron Paul".

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)

Great speech...

but ... did Rand mention at all the Federal Reserve issue? That was 15 minutes glossing on the SYMPTOMS, not the CAUSE !! :P

Thats What You Get

when you allow yourself to be edited by Neo-Cons. Notice The Ron Paul Tribute video failed to mention his anti war stance along with the Fed? The 2 major issues he has fought for his whole career..
