Great Article - The REAL Reason Romney Lost - this guy really gets it.

The utter failure of the Republican Party to embrace and acknowledge the millions of people that Ron Paul had energized over the last five years not only cost Mitt Romney the election, it may very well hinder the growth of the GOP. This is the result of a political party bent on preserving the status quo and adhering to its very principles.

The Republican Party had an opportunity to bring into its fold a generation of a well-organized grass roots effort. It had an opportunity to appeal to millions of independent, unaffiliated and libertarian leaning Americans who did one of three things, vote for Gary Johnson, write in Ron Paul or not vote at all.

I Wrote In RON PAUL too..

I Wrote In RON PAUL too.. with Pleasure, Conviction and with a Good Conscience. For the 1st time Not voting for the lesser of two evils.

I was a part of the non-voter

I was a part of the non-voter crowd who rejected the status quo. The GOP could have had my vote if they backed Ron Paul. F*** you GOP!!!

Compare the 2008 and the 2012

Compare the 2008 and the 2012 exit polls. you will find that like a good Shepard, Obama knew who his sheep were and that he could again count on their vote.

I Personally Figured Romney Would Lose

because that was the plan they came up with at Bilderberg 4 years ago when they appointed Obama. Romney was just there to be a place holder for the illusion of choice in the "election" and to keep Ron Paul out but they wanted Obama all along because he is the perfect puppet. Why change anything when you have someone doing your bidding just fine?

skippy

How do you know? Where did

How do you know? Where did you get the info? I really thought romney was going to win because of wall st donations (but clearly I was wrong) so I'm trying to figure out where the people that were right got and how they deciphered their info.

How Did I Know?

Well, I just KNEW because that's how they do things. If you understand how the elite work and think then you know what their moves are going to be. I didn't get my info anywhere. I just know how the machine runs. It's like knowing how to handle dogs or horses or whatever. A good dog trainer just KNOWS what a dog is thinking and KNOWS what to expect. KNOW your enemy! You have to watch them and learn. It's that simple. Observation!

skippy

I predicted what would

Happen to any of my friends who asked. Romney had the money but not the grassroots support. He was just a block move to keep Dr. Paul from winning the nomination fairly, with all the buy outs at the top and cheating at the conventions. I just watched all the GOP conventions that I could that were Ustreamed and linked here and could see all the establishment hacks fighting the grassroots. It happened all over the country. What a sham! I've heard some RP supporters on the radio that said they voted for Obama just b/c of Romney's aggressive foreign policy & a lot of conservatives just stayed home, wrote in RP or voted third party.

Puzzle

I don't understand this sentence:

This is the result of a political party bent on preserving the status quo and adhering to its very principles.

What principles?

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

Good article

Thanks for posting

Lincoln, the first Republican President destroyed the Republic

Lincoln fought emancipation, and only freed the slaves in the Confederate States to gain military advantage.

It is fitting the Lincoln's Memorial is a giant jail cell on the Mall in DC.

The Republican Party can claim little glory from it'ts past and fewer victories for liberty.

Maybe there is hope for the future.

I agree 100 percent. It galls

I agree 100 percent. It galls the hell out of me when I see revisionist historians glorifying Lincoln in books and movies. Only those of us that take the time to look at the Congressional Records know the truth. Lincoln was one of the most racist politicians in the country. The masses have been brainwashed and do not know the difference. He and his supporters flipped the power arrangement between the States and the Federal government -- the tenth Amendment has no teeth and cannot be enforced by the States. The original powers of the Constitution no longer exist.

Yep, Another Fine Example

of how the public endroctrination centers (ministry of truth) fogs reality to the advantage of the rats in charge. Great way to keep racism going too.

skippy

Lincoln was a Scoundrel

^True.

"It is fitting the Lincoln's Memorial is a giant jail cell on the Mall in DC."

Never really thought about it like that. :D I usually just considered his memorial an object of worship to millions of Wilsonians and liberals. But now it's sorta funny.

The startling truth:

THE GOP IS MORE AFRAID OF RON PAUL THAN BARACK OBAMA.

Romney lost to Paul, not Obama

Very good article!

so

true

Not bad

Simple, honest, and minus the usual digs.

The GOP would

rather have obummer than Ron Paul They have a good thing goin and obummer is their partner...Ron would spoil their party. Plus, all the power brokers in Washington have been purchased. No republicon or democrap wants to end up like Kennedy. The stakes are really high. Too high.

A-Ha!

...the millions of people that Ron Paul had energized over the last five years...

I knew there were more of us than the MSM purported!

Ron Paul - The Revolution

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

Many more.

My family and I know so many people who although not active, don't wear RP hats, T's, no signs, bumper stickers or talk about him, would have voted for Ron. Not much out there to be aware of other than the HUGE crowds and of course "the choir". Amazing how many, just I, have talked with who were disappointed RP wasn't elected in Tampa. Some were the ones I spoke about Paul and they were unreceptive, calling him a nut job. I pointed out the term is a giveaway as to where they got their news. TV news is a dinosaur in today's world, go to The Daily Paul. I think you're right, there are far more of us out there then we think, millions!

There's only one Party in the US.

Two representatives of that Party are selected for us to choose from, and everything remains the same. Ron Paul finally spoke up after the election and said that his true supporters just didn't vote. Sorry Dr Paul, but there were other candidates and issues on the ballot, so I had to vote. Nov. 6, 2012 was a very sad day in America. I always wondered why people in countries with dictators and communists with only one choice on the ballot, still vote to retain that person in elections, now we know.

If you see something, say something, the government is listening.
Silence isn't golden, it's yellow.

Reince Priebus and Mitt Romney should be required to have this

tattooed on their chests, backwards as to be read in a mirror. So that every morning when they get up and look in the mirror they are reminded of the truth.

If Romney couldn't cooperate with the Liberty Republicans, why would we expect him to cooperate with Democrats?

And now they're betraying the

And now they're betraying the Tea-Party on immigration and taxes as well...
