uhmm...Diebold. Did you forget.

so long as they control the media and the Diebolds, the winner will be whoever they want it to be.

True so if the "liberty"

True so if the "liberty" movement wants to do something productive we should attack this not Rand

Right so you think Rand

Right so you think Rand doesn't know that as well? =)

If he convinces the drones that he is one of them than MAYBE he can bypass the men behind the Wizard of Oz to let him control the party... This SHOULD be obvious

If only..

Watching this video tribute hurts because it brings back bad memories of Ron Paul ending his campaign just before Rand Paul endorsed Romney. I despise you Rand Paul and Jesse Benton!!



The mass-murdering pedophiles of the DC mafia can make spectacular short films.

I liked the decayed old scumbags with the extra yards of neck flesh weighing in. Gave it a cool scifi feel. Like having Star Wars characters discuss RP.

I like the way everyone in the movie says RP was right....about TAXES....man, I guess they forgot the many times he pointed out that DC is full of demented, shitt-eating morons. The backwoods neocons can stop scratching their heads now. It wasn't about mass-killing innocent people and ruining lives wholesale. It was all about maybe getting lower taxes some day. Yeah, good idea. Now let's bomb Iran.

Rand not the answer, more liberty minded people needed in Gov

I fully understand the dis-satisfactions expressed about Rand. It is not bias. It is guts feeling. Having said that, it is unfruitful to debate about him. The only comfort I have had this year is more liberty candidates did get into the local office. That's where the reward of our hard work lies. That's the only saving grace in my political involvement.

Sen. Tom Davis

could possibly carry the torch of liberty instead of Rand. Was pretty impressed with the speech at the Sun Dome and seems to have the conviction needed to run for President if he chooses to do so.

Template for Constitutional government.

~ He's not a politician.

~ He's a statesman.

~ They rarely come along in one's lifetime.

~ He has a soul -- unlike the rest.

~ Americans usually don't go for that.

~ They want celebrities, royalty and con-men.

~ Just look at history... and look at what we have before us now.

~ There will be consequences for us all going forward -- no matter which soul-less politician we choose now.

~ Romney will reward the Pentagon contractors who have bank-rolled him -- if elected.

~ Obama will finish off any Constitutional protections we have left.

~ Ironically the RNC just aired a video that is the template for Constitutional government.

~ Save it. One day we will need it to rebuild our fallen empire.

Nice little road to nowhere

the video starts with.

And Rand can shove it.

If Mittens wins it doesn't help Rand much...

Rand would have to wait til 2020 to run... we may be too busy panhandling by then. Best thing for Rand would be for Obama to win...not like it makes a difference anyways between TweedleDee or TweedleDum !!!!!

To Rand Paul: Marry Romney!

To Rand Paul: Marry Romney!

You were quick to endorse him.

Now that THE RON PAUL REVOLUTION made you a Senator, work on Legislation to allow TAX CREDITS FOR SAME SEX COUPLES, Capitalize on that and Marry Mitt Romney.

We will cheer you both.


And: NO.

I have read

the comments; agree with some but not with most. I heard Rand getting in as much of his father's beliefs as I think he would dare in a speech for someone else. I got a c from Matt Hawes and RP (taped of course) toward the end of Rands speech requesting support for End the Fed in the Senate-I will contribute, but I never heard Rand mention Romney, so it had to be at the very end and I bet he nearly choked on it.

We shouldn't expect Rand to be a carbon copy of his dad. He is an individual, but I don't think the apple fell far from the tree. RP said Rand is a better politician than he. I'm sure he will continue the fight for the Constitution.

I watched and he got really big applaud

when he talked about not giving up freedom for security.....the talking points.....got little or no applaud.He should have given more of his Fathers talking points and he would have had the room going crazy.....There are more Paulites there now that the Romney Campaign and the RNC have their true colors out in the open.The whole state of Texas stood behind the Maine delegation and the Rule changes the Romney lawyer pushed through the rules committee...and they were Romney supporters and they were furious. I think Rand was doing what I did when I voted for McCain in 2008.Holding my nose and voting ...a matter of fact I felt dirty when I left the voting booth on my way home I felt nauseated. I decided right then I would not vote for the lesser of two evils ever again....Rand is younger than me so maybe he will go hug the toilet tonight and come to the same conclusion.


He clearly and loudly

He clearly and loudly endorsed Romney it was sickening. The fact that Ron left town and didnt listen speaks volumes.

Say What

Ron left town before Rands speech? I thought he was there?

Now the biggest question is, Who will Ron endorse?


Did you see his face? He was so unenthusiastic.

Many Tweet Paul supporters march chanting..

"As Main goes,so goes the nation!" outside of main hall.

Maine is the way to go after

Maine is the way to go after all this, $%^$%^&#%&#%&*$%#!@#&*(*&$*(&((*&^%&^*(^&*(%&^%$@#%$^@,
whatever that means

What is the deal

with some of these speakers who speak to us like we're 5?

They are speaking to the mittwits left in

the hall. They can't use big words or talk about anything of substance. Their sheeple would fall asleep.

“It is the food which you furnish to your mind that determines the whole character of your life.”
―Emmet Fox

BINGO! Nonna...I think his

BINGO! Nonna...I think his approach may be to find some common ground and get their ear and continue to s l o w l y teach the message of Liberty to these sheep in little bites. I hope Rand can open some minds otherwise, his endorsement and seeming betrayal of the movement will all be for naught.

If my need to be RIGHT is greater than my desire for TRUTH, then I will not recognize it when it arrives ~ Libertybelle

This makes me angry.

It would've been a really nice tribute had they not treated Dr. Paul like absolute s*** and done everything possible to hide his existence. They think they can screw him over and then make it all okay with a 4-minute video? The RNC can go f*** themselves.

You're absolutely right and

You're absolutely right and the only silver lining is there are a whole bunch of deeply indoctrinated people there who heard a few GOOD things about Ron Paul and what he stands for... maybe for the first time...

They will not be able to unhear that message.

If my need to be RIGHT is greater than my desire for TRUTH, then I will not recognize it when it arrives ~ Libertybelle

That slap

in the face really stings.

And I'm proud to be an American

where at least I used to be free

Its the American Story,

charting your own path
forging new ways forward
not because it’s the easy way
but because it’s the right way
and for those with dedication
and Conviction
Sometimes that lonely path
Paves the way forward for MILLIONS

Ron Paul Thank You
for the path of Truth!

So where can I find the Rand Paul video

having a hard time here

What Rand's speech just told us

I think if someone asks you who you are going to vote for while at the RNC just lie and tell them Romney. I think that is what Rand's speech just told us.

The true response to this

The true response to this Tribute Video would be a Independent or a 3rd Party run and whatever critical GOP would say about RP during the last campaign months he could always just reply with this Tribute Video and say are you flip flopping again.

We paid over 30 million dollars for this video, we should get some use out of it.

I would so love to see RP go 3rd party as his final swan song. I know it won't happen, but one can dream.

He could EASILY say, "I didn't leave the GOP. The GOP left me."
