Cuccinelli Campaigns With Scott Walker, Ron Paul


Poster comment: Cuccinelli has a record that shows support for individual rights and opposition to big federal government takeovers, including ObamaCare. His opponent is a dusch-bag. I'm trying to be brief, but I expect people who read this can just make a list of that that means, and yep, that's the guy. The Libertarian candidate is also polling quite well and possibly tipping the election in favor of the dusch.


In the final weekend of the campaign for Virginia Governor, Republican Ken Cuccinelli has announced rallies with Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker and former Congressman Ron Paul, among other Republicans. The Cuccinelli campaign has put its hopes for a come-from-behind victory in energizing base Republican and conservative voters. Walker and Paul both have unique appeal with voters Cuccinelli needs on Tuesday.

Walker will attend two rallies for Cuccinelli on Saturday, appearing in Spotslyvania and Woodbridge, two Northern Virginia suburbs were the Republican needs a strong vote. Ron Paul will attend an evening rally on Monday, the eve of the election in Richmond.

Libertarian candidate Richard Sarvis has unexpectedly polled strongly in the race, ....

McAuliffe under investigation

On Sunday, President Obama will travel to Northern Virginia to campaign for Democrat Terry McAuliffe. The Commonwealth Attorney for Loudon County, however, notes that the appearance may be a conflict of interest, given the federal investigations surrounding McAuliffe's business interests. ...


Correlation does not prove causality!

Ron is doing it for the money...

please let this be true.

Don't feed the pandas. Ever.

No he is not.

"My good friend Donna Holt put it best by saying; “Ken Cuccinelli has been the most pro-liberty legislator and Attorney General we have ever had in Virginia. He is the only one who has consistently worked with the Liberty movement and the only one who has the guts to stand up to Washington"

"Ken Cuccinelli has always stood for smaller government and limited government, he has consistently and unapologetically worked with the Liberty movement in Virginia. His stand against ObamaCare shows he is willing to stand up to Washington's continued abuses on our individual liberties.I am proud to endorse to Ken for Governor of Virginia." ~ Ron Paul.

It's sad to see Ron running around

With these 2 clowns, I hope they lose. Blow up both parties never vote for a facist republican or a communist democrat you just encourage the bastards.

Nice ad on top of the DP page

It says:

"Rand and Ron Paul Say Don't Throw Your Vote Away"

Does anyone else find this utterly ironic?

No he will not!

There is a big difference between making money for speaking your mind, and selling endorsements.

He endorsed Ken back in 2009... for free.

I am sure he is saying the same things in those $50,000 speeches, as he has been saying for free for years.

If Cuccinelli loses it will

If Cuccinelli loses it will be due to his snuggling up to the moral majority and his stern positions on the gay rights issues. He's losing thousands of liberty leaning young voters on these issues.

OK so ...

What you need to do is stop accepting the opposition's BS characterization of his positions and go find out what they actually are. He's responded systematically and in detail to all of them. Again, in summary, the trick is to find out what his positions actually are, not just assuming that the opposition is giving you accurate information about their opponent.

here he is, in his own words:


“Although it was the middle of winter, I finally realized that, within me, summer was inextinguishable.” — Albert Camus


No, you'd find his own words by reading his newsletter; not a hatchet piece in the Washington Times. I find it strange the level of general knowledge the people who post here have sometimes. This is the Daily Paul, set up in support of Ron Paul. The press did a hatchet job using his newsletter as well, taking some sarcastic remarks out of context written by someone else, and presenting them as evidence that Paul is a racist. They even called it the "racist newsletter."

Anyways ... at least you should be able to recognize that your link is not to his newletter. It's not a link to his thoughts in his own words.

Correlation does not prove causality!

Uh, hello?

Those are excerpts from Cuccinelli's blog. I didn't make any claims about the good doctor. Also, that was WaPo, not WaTimes.

“Although it was the middle of winter, I finally realized that, within me, summer was inextinguishable.” — Albert Camus

seriously ....

You can't be that stupid. You can't. I am being perfectly sincere about this. I really don't believe you can be that stupid. Read his blog. Come back and post his blog article. You'll have some chance of being taken seriously if you do. In the mean time, don't treat other people like they're this stupid.

Correlation does not prove causality!

Hahahaha. Cuchinelli supports

Hahahaha. Cuchinelli supports individual rights? That's funny. He's one of those nanny staters that want to ban everything because God said so.

You're easily fooled ...

He's responded to all the weird stereotypical white Christian Republican bashing offered by his opponent. Don't just accept the oppositions dishonest characterizations. That's just how they roll. Go find out for yourself.

Correlation does not prove causality!

I did find out for myself and

I did find out for myself and he's very open about opposing gay marraige. He's also doesn't believe in the right of movement, which is obvious by his talk on illegal immigration. He's linked to onerous healthcare regulations that have severely damaged parts of the healthcare industry related to reproduction, even parts not related to abortion. I put up with Rand's negatives because he's at least moderating his social stuff, but Cuchinelli is a full blown social con and restrictionist.


See, here's the thing. Not everything is supposed to be political. We have historically done pretty well by separating the politicians' personal and social views from political power. Individual rights involves doing that. Then you decide for yourself. As long as you and a sufficient number of other people don't get that, the decision will always be in the hands of the Political Class.

Double down on libertarian HURT THE GOP

As career partisan GOP hacks continue to jump on the band wagon and dilute us beyond flavor, the more I'll be supporting the clearest and purest ethics and I'd be DELIGHTED!


to lose the GOP every fight it gets into with a principled candidate, dem, rep or libertarian.

There is nothing strange about having a bar of soap in your right pocket, it's just what's happening.

I disagree that voting

I disagree that voting Libertarian hurts the GOP. If we show them that their backwordsness (new word that I made, lol) won't be tolerated by a large segment of voters, and they have to adapt by becoming more libertarian...I think that actually strengthens them.

ok then ...

Very important to help the Republican candidate win this one.

Employer Health Insurance Gone too

Obama defense of ObamaCare lately has been that it's only people with private coverage who are losing their insurance. Now, it's being reported that employer based coverage will be lost in Jan. 2014; estimate is up to 93 million policies will be canceled / changed.

That will surely cause

That will surely cause widespread rioting. I'd get prepared for such an eventuality.

You'd think so but,

then there's this from The Atlantic.

In the event there are "real"

In the event there are "real" cuts to public workers salaries or jobs, you'll see a lot more of the panic and mental imbalance come to the fore, just as was on display during the very brief, very fake "shutdown".

If someone could show me a

If someone could show me a legitimate discrepancy between the philosophical direction of democrats and republicans, then I would be grateful.
I am fully aware of the good guys like Rand Paul and Sara Palin and Ted Cruz.
However, we all know the Republicans and the media have long ago destroyed Sara. Ted and Rand won't take them much longer.

The next Republican primary will get Libertarians all excited as one of the good guys will appear to be doing well. Then, very slowly at first, that individual will start sliding under a massive behind the scenes political process attack. That attack will be combined with a full assault in/by the media.
Then one day you are riding in your car and suddenly reality sets in... the Republicans just nominated the next Mitt Romney/Mccain and the talk show host on the radio is saying: "go to the voting booth in November and vote for the lesser of two evils".
Game over.
That's why I am a member of the Libertarian party. I cannot continue to support the collectivist Republican party. I am opposed to socialism.

wait ...

You don't have Ron Paul on the list? Ron's campaigning for Ken Cuccinelli, which is what this thread is about.

As for the Republican Party generally; if you're here, perhaps you know about the ground war that's been going on to take the party away from the corrupt people who now own it. Not an easy deal, but the PaulBots made some headway.

Correlation does not prove causality!

Ron has made it pretty clear

Ron has made it pretty clear he is not running again so I didn't mention him. The point of this thread is that a notoriously Libertarian man is pushing a Republican over a Libertarian candidate.

As for re-claiming the Republican party... I think that's like trying to restore a cellphone that was left for months in a mud puddle. It's far easier to get a new one.
The ground war you speak of was raging for decades. The Progressives won the day in 2008 when G.W.B. started the process of nationalizing major U.S. corporations and said: “I’ve abandoned free market principles to save the free market system”.

The Libertarian party is a turn key operation. It is established in all 50 states and has an excellent platform in place. They are fielding tons of candidates and are light years ahead of any other third party.

don't make no sense

Can't imagine anyone supporting Libertarians who aren't libertarians. I can easily understand the logic of supporting libertarians who aren't Libertarians.
