Ron Paul Will Not Endorse Romney Because He Rightly Thinks America is a One Party System

Ron Paul is the most consistent politician in D.C.

After all, the congressman from Texas has been saying it for months: he will NOT be endorsing GOP nominee Mitt Romney. Yet, the media still won't accept it.

CNBC's Larry Kudlow asked him in May. CNN's Wolf Blitzer brought it up in June. Fox's Neil Cavuto tried again in August. And then, on Thursday, CNBC's Jackie Deangelis popped the question once more: "Are you ready to endorse Mitt Romney?"

Paul's answer to everyone? "No."

But this time, he cleared up his endorsement with an explanation as to why he won't favor either candidate ... and it was pretty blunt.

First, Paul called out both President Obama and Romney as, essentially, puppets of the Fed. "There are people who are very, very powerful that are able to make sure their interests are protected – whether it's the people who run the Federal Reserve and bail out banks and bail out European banks and international situations," he explained. "Right now, they have their two guys there."

He then slammed the two candidates, saying they're part of the same mold. "Why does Obama not attack Romney for being the Goldman Sachs candidate? It's because they both are within the establishment where they need the Federal Reserve and the lender of last resort to make sure that you can take all the risks in the world, but don't sweat it because government will be there and the fed will be there and they're going to get bailed out," he argued.

Again, thank you Ron Paul

The only person in this whole confused country who can put his finger on what the problem is and communicate that problem to those who are lucky enough to be able to hear what he has to say.

He has been the only one giving me hope in my lifetime. I turned 62 yesterday, I cannot believe how old I am getting. I have been working on changing foreign policy since I was in high school. I will keep trying to change things, and it's great to have a few million people who feel the same way also working on this.

Getting the internet really helped. Do not let them take that away.

I believe the major problems started in the early 1900's, with the fed and the IRS. Those are the major obstacles I've noticed in my life. Also the draft, do not let them restart the draft. The draft is really bad, even though I am shocked at how many people enlist to go to these horrible, endless wars.

The Queen of England has no real power.

She is a figurehead who's only real position is to remind the British people of the powerful monarchy they once had. Still they go through the motions of succession to the throne as they did in days of old.

Real power lies elsewhere, primarily in the banks and corporations.

The President of the United States is much like the Queen of England in that he is a figurehead or a puppet, who's only real duty is to remind the people of the democracy we once had.

We still go through the motions of having elections every four years, and sometimes another family gets to move into the White House following one of those elections.

But real power lies elsewhere, primarily in the banks and corporations.

Four years ago I held my nose and voted for McCain.

I am ashamed of the compromise I made in making that vote. No more or less ashamed than I would have been had I voted for Obama though.

THIS year my vote goes for neither offering of the War Party. I will not be supporting our one party, with two principal candidate system. No matter how those two candidates act like they really ARE different on nonsense issues only from each other.

Excellent, Ron.

You truly understand what a treasured quality integrity is. It's amazing how many others will so willingly toss integrity out the window for perceived momentary advantages (that never materialize). Personally I will NEVER, EVER, EVER vote or support anyone who endorsed leftists like Romney or Obama. Ever.

Brother Winston Smith

The r3VOLution is NOT republiCAN.

Ron has no reason to endorse Romney

He['s leaving congress, unconcerned what his committee would think if he didn't endorse Romney.. he is free. But those of us who he is leaving behind, Rand, C4L, those who are established in the GOP to materialize his message, he will have connections with them and speaking engagements, but he can vote for anyone he wants. We have loyaty oaths,, and we are going to stick with the loyalty oath because we all signed a loyalty to the constitution, and we aill hold them to that, as they held us to Romney. We will not fade away. We Are The Future. We are winning.

Oooops... a few corrections are warranted...

"He['s leaving congress, unconcerned what his committee would think if he didn't endorse Romney.. he is free."
OOOOPSY...
Ron Paul's REJECTION of McCain and endorsement of the CONSTITUTION PARTY'S Chuck Baldwin in 08 shatters this "theory" (BS).

"But those of us who he is leaving behind, Rand, C4L, those who are established in the GOP"
OOOOPSY...
We are AGAIN trying to FALSELY meld Constitutional Ron with REPUBLICAN Rand - to CO-OPT the Liberty Movement for the LEFTIST GOP.

"We have loyaty oaths,, and we are going to stick with the loyalty oath because we all signed a loyalty to the constitution"
OOOOPSY...
No, your loyalty lies with the REPUBLICANS, NOT the Constitution - as they are oil and water.

"We will not fade away. We Are The Future. We are winning."
OOOOPSY...
No, you've signed a "loyalty oath" to Romney. YOU LOSE!!!!!!!! Your REPUBLICAN PARTY IS THE PAST, IT IS THE PROBLEM, IT IS ANTI-CONSTITUTION, IT IS ANTI-AMERICA. To "win" requires you REJECT the republican party.

An oath to thugs and liars is no oath at all.

You keep on pretending though.

That's not WHO it was for

It was for myself, so happens some thugs and liars want to hold me to the oath I took, so I figure, ok, because it gives me the opportunity to blowback with the oath we all took to the constitution, eh?

Could you explain the power your committee has over Romney...

...that he would be subject to it should they decide to hold him accountable if he violated his oath to the Constitution.

file to impeach

based on breaking constitutional oath.

I've met the congressional candidate twice

Dan Roberts is a Liberty Candidate and deserves my support and vote and he's got it. Our Liberty candidates are struggling in loical electiuons against the Democrats.. but we will do our best with what we have.

My question wasn't whether you contact your rep/candidate.

Anyone can contact their rep.

You talk about voting Romney so your committee will be empowered to hold his feet to the fire. I am wanting to know what power your committee has that Romney would be subject to it. What authority does your committee have over him that he would be accountable to it?

It would not be only my committee

It would be many committees where Ron paul Republican and their allies who agree to keep our oaths to the constitution, that would be talking about what was unconstitutional and then writing what is constitutional, presenting it at state conventions, and then the national.. where the GOP will get the message, they have lost their way. It won't happen over night, but the process will happen Romney get's in office.

I believe it is a process to

enable a party to impeach it's own, as the oath we took

We hold Romney to this:

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution

A party does not have authority to impeach the President.

Q115."What is the impeachment process?"

A. The Constitution details impeachment in Article 1, Section 2, Article 1, Section 3, Article 2, Section 3, and Article 3, Section 2. The word "details," however, is a bit strong for what the Constitution provides. As with many things, the Constitution primarily gives us a skeleton of a process. The House brings charges for impeachment. The Senate holds a trial and votes to convict or acquit. The only way to remove a President, Vice President, or Article 3 judge is through impeachment. Impeachments are not tried by a jury. The rest of the process is left to the rules of Congress.

Granger, I think I've got enough now regarding your idea of "empowerment" by voting Romney. Thank you for your replies.

Sure sure.. keep telling yourself that.

As delusional as some of the things that come out of your mouth are, I can totally see how you'd believe that.

Nothing is farther than the Truth..One Party-Two Factions/Wings

Bringing in Third Parties would ACTUALLY make it two...them vs US!

YES!, this is EXACTLY why Ron

YES!, this is EXACTLY why Ron Paul will get my write in vote, EVEN if it doesn't count.

A MAN OF PRINCIPALS!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rand, are you paying attention to your father. Withdraw your endorsement.

No Johnson tie in?

Trying to get those DP numbers back up after someone noted that you've fallen from 100 to 3, I see.

Too early for an organic beer toast

None on hand anyway.
Out of organic coffee as well.
A simple thank you for posting the text will have to do.
I can view youtubes, but many can't or won't so I'm sticking my neck out and thaking you on their behalf.

I notice a distinct lack of our "vote for Romney" trolls

on this thread. Reality bites, huh fellas?

Maybe because those so called "vote for Romney" trolls as you

call them are nothing like that at all and instead are Ron Paul supporters and since this is about Ron Paul (The shining light mac daddy of all Statesmen) and not a "I love Gitmo Johnson" thread.. Nobody is saying much.

Been saying this forever...

so much so I am sick of hearing myself.

But it is so not embraced by the majority of people...the general mindset is like a sports competition...gotta pick the winning team.

Sad.

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.
Ron Paul - The Revolution

Setting a good example is a far better way to spread ideals than through force of arms. Ron Paul

agreed

CNN is the leading entity in brainwashing the nation.
And they talk about the two Goldman Sachs candidates 24/7.

What a lame circus!
