Ron Paul's Message to the GOP: Join the Liberty Movement! (via Facebook)

by Ron Paul | Facebook
November 9, 2012

America is over $16 trillion in debt. The "official" unemployment rate still hovers around 8%.

Our federal government claims the right to spy on American citizens, indefinitely detain them, and even assassinate them without trial.

Domestic drones fly over the country for civilian surveillance.

Twelve million fewer Americans voted in 2012 than in 2008, yet political pundits scratch their heads.

It's not hard to see why, though.

To go along with endorsing a never-ending policy of bailouts, "stimulus packages," and foreign military adventurism, the establishment of neither major party questions the assaults on Americans' liberties I’ve named above.

As my campaign showed, the American people are fed up. Many realized heading into Tuesday that regardless of who won the presidential election, the status quo would be the real victor.

GOP leadership is now questioning why they didn't perform better.

They're looking at demographic changes in the United States and implying minorities can only be brought into the party by loudly advocating for abandoning what little remains of their limited government platform and endorsing more statist policies.

My presidential campaign proved that standing for freedom brings people together.

Liberty is popular – regardless of race, religion, or creed.

As long as the GOP establishment continues to not only reject the liberty message, but actively drive away the young, diverse coalition that supports those principles, it will see results similar to Tuesday’s outcome.

A renewed respect for liberty is the only way forward for the Republican Party and for our country.

I urge all my Republican colleagues to join the liberty movement in fighting for a brighter future.

I've been going to various conservative websites and repeating the same thing. Surprisingly many are agreeing, but others just think that is they wrap their same old dance and song in a brown person people will vote for the status quo.

The Liberty message resonates

The Liberty message resonates with everyone all over the world! It is the key to the future of the Republican party.

'Peace is a powerful message.' Ron Paul

Freedom

will be missed more and more as the Obamanation digs deeper in...

When Fascism goes to sleep, it checks under the bed for Ron Paul!

Ron Paul 2016, rand is not

Ron Paul 2016, rand is not even an option for me. I doubt there are any other liberty candidates worth my time running in the gop in 2016. I just might leave the gop if ron paul is not running again. Then i can at least be involved in a NON-corrupt non-gop process and secure a worthy lp candidate at their convention.

asking me to vote for rand is like me voting for romney. IT WILL NEVER happen so if i do not hear ron paul is interested in 2016 or someone other then romney lovers running in 2016 in the gop. I might let the gop die in my area and leave. rand is not an option on the table now or in 2016 or ever.

sadly i think dp/rpf is gonna turn into a rand lovefest which i have no interest in being in or spending my time or money on. I vowed never to support any republican who supported or endorsed romney. I will not break my vow. looks like i will be supporting Ron Paul 2016 if he runs or i will put my time and money into a Gary Johnson 2016 run.

Ron Paul 2016

I'd vote for Justin Amash or

I'd vote for Justin Amash or Tom Davis, although they have not reached at main stage yet.

are you blind? you say you

are you blind? you say you will only vote for Ron and not Rand yet Rand is Probably Rons closest son, considering they share a apartment in washington and travel together. if Ron does not run in 2016 and endorses his son he clearly believes in his son to carry the torch. all of rands and rons ideas are calculated to the benefit for liberty and you do not have any clue what goes on behind the scene.

what part of i clearly vowed

what part of i clearly vowed never to support or vote for anyone that endorsed obamney! period rand denied my support when he endorsed romney!

Ron Paul 2016

vow all you want but how did

vow all you want but how did rand get less support from neocons for supporting romney? he didn't he gained support getting the sheeple neocons to believe he is with them, when in reality they are to dumb to look at his voting record to see he is really not. rand knows his supporters are not average sheeple and can see it for what it is, just a way to cozy up to them neocons on national tv and talk about how less you agree with romney than you can agree with him. keep spewing your hatred for rand when true ron and rand supporters do not make silly vows to not vote for the only man who is closest to ron in voting and son.

Good luck

on your quest to build up the LP party. By the time the LP gets more than 5% in any election except the PTA, the Ron Paul Revolution will have taken over the GOP, and hopefully we will lead the charge in dismantling political partys'.

i will vote for lp,republican

i will vote for lp,republican or whoever, but i will never support or vote for anyone that endorsed romney. end of story! I was lp before i joined the gop so do not try to educate me on the lp. I was a republican delegate in 2008,2012 and i will gladly support anyone that did not endorse romney in the gop. I will vote for Gary Johnson before i vote for dem or rand! I clearly hope a liberty candidate runs that did not endorse romney.

Anyone on fb that tries to sell me randromey, will be blocked or deleted.

Ron Paul 2016

The LP

doesn't even make sense, Ron Paul revolutionary's realize, just as Washington did, that political party's are the problem.

Dr. Paul is too much of..

...a gentleman to say, I TOLD YOU SO!...

Participate in America's future- Research Ron Paul- Truth will Prevail! You too, will be proud one day, to be able to say: "I was a Ron Paul supporter."

I agree with Dr Paul. The

I agree with Dr Paul. The RATpubliCONs do need the liberty movement if they plan on getting anywhere. But, the liberty movement doesn't need the RATpubliCONs to get where we want to go. The message of liberty is THAT popular. Let's just keep getting it out there.

I have talked with many

I have talked with many Blacks who know Obama is a puppet. They are not enamored with him but saw no alternative in the Republican party.

Obama launched a tremendous social media campaign. He appeared on Reddit twice answering questions directly with the people. He conducted a "Twitter Town Hall" from the White House. He had a Google Hang Out. The Black radio stations around here were praising Obama during every single commercial. Some of the Black churches were promoting him also.

Obama is the Technology president. Google's top executives advised him how to campaign with Technology. The Obama app had access to all materials you needed including a database of all the registered Democrats in the country. If you had any questions about the Obama presidency or wanted to make a side by side comparison to Romney...it was all at your fingertips.

Obama won the Social Media vote.

"As of press time, national exit polling shows that 19 percent of the electorate was between 18 and 29 and that Obama won this group by 24 points – in fact, Obama captured 60 percent of the youth vote."

There is the "peer pressure" factor of social media. "Facebook also had some numbers to report. According to the network, 9,682,443 (as of press time) of its users hit the I Voted app to log their engagement."

Obama was not that popular but he still got elected. Oh yea,I forgot about those "free" phones.

This is interesting. He probably was perceived by the non-

liberty movement folks as being a lot more "hip" than Romney. Too bad they couldn't see through that.

Ron Paul 2016. Its Never Too Late!

I would rather have an older person that is right than a younger person that is wrong.

Maybe by 2016 enough people will have figured it out, so many people that we cannot be swindled out of what is left of our liberties.

He says it was a joke, but we'll see . . . in the meantime, he

seems to be as involved or even more so than before. :))

Giant bump.

It's why no member of the liberty movement really resonates more with me than Ron Paul...

Liberty for all is a winning platform! If only the Republican party thought so as well.

12 million less voted!!!

Wow! I suspect that is just a pocket full of Paul supporters! Add up the supporters that did vote. Dr. Paul has more supporters than we know! The media has hid this so well that we don't even know the true count! And I wouldn't just add the ones from the primaries...we know about what they did there!

Thats

Dr.Paul, Amazing as always.

Big bump

But criminals in the GOP will never take that step.
