Election Day: The Ron Paul Factor

We stand less than forty-eight hours from the election of the next President of the United States. The two major candidates are Democratic incumbent Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney. The key figure in this race could very well be one that is not even in the race and is retiring from Congress.

Congressman Ron Paul, the representative from Texas who led a revolution of libertarians and constitutionalists within the political mainstream. This year has been a well-documented battle of these political revolutionaries against the entrenched establishment. Kicked down and brushed aside, the Ron Paul people have now proven to be a force of influence and will be an interesting storyline to follow Tuesday night.

Conflict still remains as to whether or not many will vote for former New Mexico governor and Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson or write in Congressman Paul himself, but one thing remains certain: Mitt Romney is not on the short list.

wrong spot

Check out this email I rcvd this am

What a laugh I had knowing out there somewhere, a foolish group of people, searching for any way to sway Ron Paul supporters, came up with this idiot to sell their snake-oil.


Good luck at trying to make it through this stupidity.

Thanks for the laugh.

I needed it.

My question.

Given his assertion that he wants to do everything he can to promote conservative principles whom did he support as Republican nominee during the primary cycle?

Somehow I doubt that it was Ron Paul. In which case he is not as he asserts doing everything in his power to advance the cause of conservatism in America. By this he said he means Limited Government. Personal Freedom. Personal Responsibility. There has been no candidate who personifies these qualities more than Ron Paul so if he did not vote for him in his State primary then he is just another hypocrite who abandoned his principles. I wonder who he did vote for.

Unbelievable - did you see this at the bottom of their site:

"Why do we provide this service? First, because we love you, dear viewer. Second (and much more importantly), because we want to make oodles and oodles of money and eventually take over the world."

I couldn't make it even half way through

His voice made my skin crawl. He's the very definition of the word sycophant.


I couldn't do it.

Insult Indeed

"After all of this, it is an insult to expect a Mitt Romney vote out of a single Ron Paul supporter. If the loss in the contest had been fair, it would be a different story. The Republican unity line might actually be a fair weapon against internal dissent. This was not the case, however."
