Rand Paul Book Signing in New York City (AKA Vote For Romney Rally)Submitted by RonPauloholic on Mon, 09/10/2012 - 01:12
I just got back from a Rand Paul book signing and rally in New York City at Rebel NYC. The speakers were Jack Hunter, Peter Schiff, Doug Stafford, Dan Halloran and obviously Rand Paul.
What was unfortunate about this event, is that each speaker essentially put forth the idea that we should hold our nose and vote for Romney. They basically said, "Gary Johnson is a great guy.....BUT he's not going to win, therefore, we need to support Romney to get Obama out of office"
This is the same old line that we must vote for the lesser of two evils because the sky is going to fall if the current guy remains in office and Romney MIGHT be slightly better. In fact, Schiff just about literally said this...he said that he doesn't know what Romney will do when in office but at least his "rhetoric is a little better."
It was pretty disheartening as I sat and listened to each speaker make this point, but what most concerns me is that I truly believe that the establishment is trying to infiltrate the freedom movement through Rand Paul and they are using the name of Ron Paul to do just that.
I'm not sure why Rand Paul is doing this, perhaps he was promised a cabinet position? Perhaps he thinks this is good strategy? I don't know.
All I know is that we are not going to defeat the establishment by endorsing them and the sick feeling I got while sitting through these speeches about liberty and freedom while at the same time they were subtly telling us to vote for Romney will not go away any time soon.
