Article: Ron Paul Almost Took Over The Republican Party

Outstanding article in The Daily Bell about the deconstruction of the Ron Paul Revolution, and how he helped to educate the masses. The republican party is on the ropes. The tea party is dead (capital letters omitted intentionally).

Great article. It will be

Great article. It will be great when its message is common sense to the rest of the population. It's so odd to see "good" republicans this week shell shocked that a "true" conservative lost to Obama. The ones I know believe that Romney is actually different than Obama and would have saved the country. It's laughable.

I hear you..

I get to hear those same comments and I don't say too much because I want to talk to them about the way RP came up and how he was treated in the caucuses, the convention and everything in between - but I might as well be talking to them about a guy named Zirk from planet Gorgon - because they have no clue as to who RP is or that any suppression happened to his followers/voters/supporters at the hands of the Republicans or that dastardly Prince Riebus.

It's really frustrating!

That's funny. I sat down and

That's funny. I sat down and presented a few of the videos showing what happened to us in the delegate wars. This group of people actually made statements that they didn't see anything wrong or that they would need more information to make a judgement.

That was one of the best articles I have ever read.

It was. Except for the part about Ron Paul never intending to win. He certainly did, and could have.

it was a great article - I printed it out to share with others.

I noticed that line in there too about Ron Paul not wanting to win - it's something I've wondered about for the past few months (in retrospect).

Something didn't seem right in RP's campaign.


2012 isn't going to be remembered for the president America elected, History will remember Dr.Ron Paul. He has played a much much bigger part In America then he gets credit for.

Good opinion piece except

for his error in stating that Ron Paul didn't intend to win. This tells me the guy doesn't really know a thing about the good Dr.
In the comments section, someone challenges the author on that and this is the very weak reply given:
"Look, it's well known that his son-in-law and campaign manager didn't act effectively in the latter stages of the campaign. That's just one example. An evident and obvious one. Was it intentional? We're not inside his head ..."
Hmm. While in charge of Philadelphia, Benedict Arnold devised a scheme to enrich his ailing business by using military wagons and horses for transport while charging Philly merchants and when Gen Washington found out about it he didn't even want reprimand Arnold for it. Later, Arnold would dupe Washington by asking for an appointment at West Point where Arnold had made a deal with the British and Washington fell for it. So are we to say that Washington was intentionally trying to lose the War of Independance because he trusted Arnold? I think not.
That one sentence is a clear admission that the author knows nothing about Dr Paul the man. For those of us who actually listen to President Paul (he will always be my President), it is clear that he had all intentions of being America's President, but had no will to be America's 'leader' - that difference won't be lost on those who actually understand the greatest statesman of our time.

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.

Well done, stm.

Very well stated! We listened and we "got it". Ron Paul is the greatest statesman of our time.

Don't miss this

I haven't been this excited over an article written from the outside since I read Matt Taibbe's "The Great American Bubble Machine."

The Daily Bell writes:

"As the veil shrivels and smokes, one cannot look away. Once one begins to understand the truth about how the world works, there is no going back. The shock to the system is profound. It tends to take over one's life. The idea that every nook and cranny of one's consciousness has been controlled and "directed" is an overwhelming concept.

People who come to such conclusions find their lives have changed. It is physically and mentally impossible to ignore it. And it is difficult not to proselytize because the reality is so profound."

I could have cheered out loud. Someone outside gets it.

For sure.

Those paragraphs (especially the 1st one) sent tingles up my spine. Right on the money.


The tea party never went anywhere, let's hope it's the FAKE tea party that is dead. We need to keep up the good fight, education and stick together.

I'm glad they

get it but I never was one for the Monday morning quarter-back opinion.

"Of course, in this analysis, we should offer a further reality: Ron Paul is not insane. He likely didn't ever intend to win and sabotaged his own campaign in evident and obvious ways."

This is the word up on the streets. We were righter than even we wanted to be all along.

Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.

"Likely didn't intend to win"...?

Ron Paul always wins. High time we talk about the American Enterprise Institute who runs these elections and the GOP. And high time we talk about their cousins Project for a New American Century. We witnessed first hand just how deep their roots are - They even attended Ron Paul meetups a year before the election. They are a matrix that runs across the fabric of our lives: social media, Cable News, newspapers, subliminal messaging in cartoons, adult entertainment, change agents/indoctrination of our children in school system, churches. I recommend a very old, book, so well written is even more relevant than it was in 1978 (evergreen) is on Amazon for 1 penny:
"En Route to Global Occupation" by Gary H. Kah. Also my research shows that a roughly a(I'd have to go back an check) century ago the wealthy in Europe created Roundtables to protect their positions. They met in Paris and created NIEO - "New International Economic Order". The elite have taken control by infiltrating the jesuits and by further creating a network of Satanic worship through the Masonic Lodges. Those are the big boys who get all the contracts, wealth and power.

I disagree with this. Paul

I disagree with this. Paul did intend to win, but was realistic and knew the odds were very much against him. I see no evidence that he deliberately sabotaged his own campaign. He did make mistakes, among them a poor choice of campaign manager, but that is a far cry from trying to sabotage his own campaign.


Thats a perspective that is spot on!!!

'Peace is a powerful message.' Ron Paul


MUST read!

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

He still can.

His being in congress or not doesn't need to stop his inspiring others.

Integrity means having to say things that people don't want to hear & especially to say things that the regime doesnt want to hear -RonPaul

Bump !

good read....

"If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin."
Samuel Adams

I am so sorry to believe that

I am so sorry to believe that Ron Paul, my hero, my champion, my mentor simply rolled over before taking the challenge at least to the floor of the convention.

I don't believe that for a second.


Integrity means having to say things that people don't want to hear & especially to say things that the regime doesnt want to hear -RonPaul

What do you believe?

What do you believe?


are portions of that article that are utterly brilliant. Thanks

WOW! Just a GREAT Article!!!!

Goes hand in hand with my earlier post. I think we are on the verge of EXPLODING in the national consciousness. Poised and ready to change the social mood! Viva la Revolucion!

Unfortunately, the neo-con

Unfortunately, the neo-con element won't simply disappear. As a matter of fact, all I heard yesterday was the only way forward for the Republican Party was to be more inclusive of Hispanics! This is the logic in the GOP. These jackasses would've won had they embraced Paul supporters, which would've delivered the youth vote to them. What blind fools.

Yes, I also heard that

It's amazing how out of touch they are, or just maybe they are spinning the truth so more people don't figure it out.

According to 2000 census

According to 2000 census data, Hispanics currently represent the largest so-called "minority" group in the US.


This is obviously a trend they ignored at their own peril.
