Romney vote is equal to

A war with Iran sooner, but other than that; how is Romney any different than Obama? Either way war with Iran is on the burner. Plus it doesn't matter which of these two clowns wins; the selection has been made by those who control the country. The only thing we don't know is how many votes the two will receive.

Good for her!

Not everyone can afford to sit back and be a hermit. We've got to live in this country and most sensible people aren't interested in living in this country four more years with Barrack Obama as president.

One Bean, or a Mountain of Beans...

Willard the rat Romney will NEVER get my vote, EVER!!!

Mmm Hmm

Continue reading below for variations on shock and acceptance. And there's got to be at least one comment claiming strategic victory for liberty; double agent style perhaps.


think you know soooo much about politics. SHE CANT ENDORSE anyone but Romney while she is in the Republican party....ITS AGAINST THE RULES TO ENDORSE ANYONE ELSE WHO IS NOT THE NOMINEE! I know you guys hate to hear that but GET OVER IT!

Politics today is no different than WWE... ITS FAKE!!!

What is Capitalism?

She had the option of...

...keeping her big fat trap shut.

But nooooooo.

I am sure she had no option...

...in keeping her trap closed - it's the way the RNC rolls baby. Threaten, coerce and intimidate.

Preparation through education is less costly than learning through tragedy

And therefore cowards should cow?

That makes no sense. Ignore them, work on something else, disappear for a few month, oh just plain tell them to stick it. I've done all of the above many times.

Its called politics

Seriously people an Endorsement means NOTHING! Enjoy the show.

I've been involved far longer than you have.

I get politics. And in politics, those who splurge their endorsements all over are known as whores and sellouts.

Keeping it to yourself is far more often more powerful than others knowing you will sell yourself out for peanuts.

Bravo Ms. Bean! God bless you.

What the Republican Party did to the Maine delegation was absolutely disgraceful and we won't forget it when we take over the party and they are in the minority. But, until then, we need to do what is best for this country. And Mitt Romney, despite his flaws will be a lot better for this country than Barrack Obama and will put in policies that we agree with.


“do what is best for this country” I DON'T THINK SO! What Romney WILL DO is install his War Cabinet with ultra-right-wing neocon radicals so they can continue an even more aggressive interventionist ‘bomb, bomb Iran’ policy, run up the deficit and broaden the police state. No thanks, I'M WRITING IN RON PAUL.

Another one spends their political capital on a loser.

Did she also pledge to blindly endorse the republican nominee no matter who it was? Putting a political party above one's country is dangerous and totally unnecessary. These people either have puppet strings, or they run on batteries.


Spineless piece of ****.

Maybe someone gave her the big hunker and she went...

Hell no, can't trust anyone.

Sigh, I am over 30 and I bet I m just as much for liberty as you

She obviously does not need money.

What is she being offered by the GOP? Any thoughts?

Sorry Linda, you have lost my endorsement (forever)!

It's sad you feel that way.

Just because a principled, classically liberal individual endorses of vote for someone who is neither does not mean that individual was bribed. Some people are pragmatist. I want to do away with the income tax too. But, until we get rid of it, wouldn't it be better to lower the brackets rather than increase them like Obama wants to do? I want to get rid of the Fed too. But, until we can do that, wouldn't it be better to get a Republican Senate majority leader in who will bring Ron Paul's Audit the Fed bill up for a vote rather than let Harry Reid ignore it for the next four years?

Yeah I'd Like a BLT sandwich

Yeah I'd Like a BLT sandwich too but until that happens I will hold my nose and eat the shit sandwich rather then the shit sandwich with moldy cheese...

And that brilliant strategy is what has brought us to the brink of disaster. So yeah keep doing the same bullshit over and over and expecting different results... Sigh!

Yes. Politics

only works for politicians. Their supporters fight over crumbs. Wake up, sheep. Realize you are free men.

Like Rombama is

any better. You clearly do not understand that they are both puppets of the elites, both support the same programs and wars, and both have the same bankster contributors (owners).

Anyone who thinks either of these clowns is better than the other is an idiot. Obamas a commie/fascist, but he's not the one who lied, cheated and blackmailed Ron Paul.
That was YOUR man, Rombama.

She has made a practical business decision.

Unfortunately, US business is largely about short term gain. Like Rand, Linda feels she is better off working with the established order; and, when things go south, she expects the established order to protect her and her wealth to cover her anywhere the established order can not.

I hope everyone has learned

I hope everyone has learned by now not to give money to "liberty" pac's. Including C4L et al, that milks the Ron Paul name but managed by Tate/Benton and the like.

Keep your money. Do what you think will advance the cause. Because when you centralize funds and effort, almost always it's someone unscrupulous who rises to take the reigns. Just like gov't.


I only donated to Ron Paul's campaign. And I have unsubscribed to C4L and Rand Paul e-mails. Screw them. We are duped.
