Nobody can claim that the Ron Paul blackout isn't alive and well.

The media has blamed sunspots, the Washington Redskins opponent, American Idle and even Al Qaeida, for Romney's loss.

But never a mention of the Convention fight with Ron Paul, the adversarial State Conventions or Ron Paul's refusal to endorse Romney.

The media would rather blame sunspots than Ron Paul, because nobody has been ordered not to mention sunspots, like they have been ordered not to mention Ron Paul.

A lot of us (me included) were concerned that we would be BLAMED when Romney lost. But to BLAME us would require MENTIONING us. We should have realized we were safe, because they will NEVER mention us.

ya, talk about media's blackout on ron paul, jetguy

when you're not busy accusing ron paul supporters of being cultish

Yeah, they did blame us in 2008!

And we grew larger! Heaven forbid...lol.

Greta, where did you go?

Where did Greta Van Susteren go? I thought she was oh so interested in what Ron Paul people have to say. Greta, you haven't returned my calls. I feel like you don't love me anymore.

Yes, the head in the sand pundits

came up with all kinds of useless reasons for the defeat of Romney. I e-mailed the following to friends and family, then branched out to Human Events, Pat Buchanan. and The Washington Post (George Will):
"The GOP for many years presented a candidate, we republicans trusted them, voted and went back to sleep. Came Obama. We woke up. We favor limited government. Adherence to The Constitution. We watched and listened to Romney in the primary debates and again after he became the candidate. We were not impressed.He liked the NDAA. He was asked a question about Congress and said he would talk to the attorneys. Ron Paul told him to read The Constitution. He liked 2014 as the date for withdrawal from Afghanistan (that's Obama's date). The arrogant RNC also made a fatal mistake when they changed the rules and shut out Ron Paul and his delegates. Did they think they didn't need the Paul votes. After all most of them are republicans. As a consequence, Gary Johnson got 1,139,562 votes. Others, wrote in Ron Paul and many stayed home. Non Paul people voted Third Party or stayed at home in disgust. Time for the GOP to wake up.

We are in another war for our Independence.

Hit the nail on the head

I too was preparing for a lot of hate from others because of the way I voted. I was shocked that only one Facebook group came out with the hate. The answer of course is that no one wants to mention Ron Paul. If the GOP doesn't learn their lesson in 2016, they will become like the Whig Party.

Ron Paul Statesman Ron Paul stands firm on his platforms

With Ron Paul you always know where he stands.
With Mitt Romney you are never sure which Romney you will get.
I would like to thank Ron Paul for his many years of service and never backing down although many times he stood alone.

Standing firm

on wrong principles is no good.

Thus, people from collectivist dogmas (religious dogma in GOP and progressive dogma in DEM party) usually stick to their principles. But who will dance before American people then? Americans expect populism (somebody to blame and an easy fix) and free handouts?

...ignoring us is more important then giving us attention.

Prezactly!!!!!!!

"But to BLAME us would require MENTIONING us. We should have realized we were safe, because they will NEVER mention us."
Truer words were never spoken!

Yup, AGAIN, the leftist republican party...

has dipped BELOW predicted depths. Instead of using the ENGINEERED LOSS to smear the Liberty Movement... they are USING THE LOSS to push the republican party MORE TO THE LEFT - by LYING and "assessing" that their "right wing" leanings (an absolute lie) are too much for America! This allows them to AID the COMPULSORY UNCONSTITUTIONAL collectivism, amnesty, destruction of marriage, further annihilation of the Constitution and Bill of rights, etc, etc.

Until the republican party is FULLY AND WHOLLY REJECTED, nothing is going to change and the Central Government Planning boa is ONLY GOING TO TIGHTEN IT'S COIL - as the R's convince us "working within" the tightening coil is the "better strategy."

F the R's!

Brother Winston Smith

The r3VOLution is NOT republiCAN.

They blacked out what happened

To show it now only further discredits them.

They CAN'T mention it, even though everybody already knows. It's a funny scenario that leaves them looking like propagandist clowns.

I guess they have not realize yet that, "An idea whose time

has come cannot be stopped" And lucky us, we have 4 more years to educate those that the time is indeed, NOW! By 2016 the GOP will be thanking us.

There may not be a "United States" in 2016.

The way it's going, we may be disintegrated by then.

Heck, 15 states are wanting to secede!

I wish they could!

Exactly Right

and to mention Ron Paul would give us more credibility and with that more supporters. With more attention, there is more criticism of the feds financial scams and interventionist wars. The problem they are creating for themselves, as people figure it out, is a huge loss of credibility. I'm waiting for the jokes aimed at the MSM to come out, once they become the object of ridicule and humor its over for them.

Pushing for the next insider candidates

Marco Rubio is a nobody but he is Hispanic ! GOP groupthink - "we need him, we didn't get the Hispanic vote and he is under 60 yrs old". I am already tired of hearing this guy's name. Flavor of the minute.

Jeb Bush, the intelligent son - he has the Bush brand ! GOP groupthink - "We won with the Bush brand twice, we can do it again. Yeah, great idea". Sorry, it is a tarnished brand. Kinda antiquated... like Oldsmobile.

It is fun watching the death-throw convulsions and knee-jerk reactions. The establishment reeks with fear.
