It was designed to fail, so that hillary and the establishment will 'come together' and come to the rescue by moving into single-payer.

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

I'm sorry

I think the best thing about Obama is by those who can now understand how many conservatives felt about Bush.

Top picture mentions Shappard Fairy, the artist, who got a job with Levi's as designer after his HOPE picture with Obama got him into the national gallery... my thoughts on that picture..
Ron Paul's 08 campaign was "Hope For America".. I've still got official campaign stuff hanging around to prove it.. and when the Obama campaign selected Fairy's art, that had HOPE, and the fact MSM was censoring Ron Paul, it was easy for Obama to "steal" Ron Paul's motto.. Obama was so obvious to me, I asked Obama supporters "Why are you voting Obama?" This is what they told me:

1. Cute
2. Good speaker
3. Mixed race/Black
4. NOT Hillary
6. Studied constitutional law
7. Nice family

I hoped to get a list of ten things.. like: No War, End war on drugs, but didn't get any issues.. and so I had no HOPE, started going to Church to get HOPE. Seriously.

I'm sorry about how Obama worked out too.

Around these parts:

8. He is going to restore WEATLH to the middle class.

9. He is going to end war.

10. He is going to prosecute banker and corporate thieves.

They wanted hillary, but in the end didn't care as long as it was a democrat. They now think that she is going to fix what obama didn't.

Granger, enjoy your up votes :-)

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

Pretty good

addition to the list.. I didn't get those.. but this is friom the 08 campaign. ANd yeah they wanted Hillary.. get ready 'cause here she comes...


Sad to say I voted for Obama in 2008

but not in 2012!

It really is the end. Just like what happened to GWB at the end. He's going to get boiled alive.

But the end only means a new beginning.

Thanks Daily Paul.


Should have your secret password revoked!

We all make mistakes

Sometimes you have to make the big one to find the right cause. I voted for Obama in '08 as well. Ron Paul got my vote in '12.

Hope(less) and Change ( Can you spare any? ).

Thanks to all the Americans that had the opportunity to once again vote for Ron Paul, but wanted Bush and Obama instead.

a Shout Out to all who voted for Mitt(ens) Romney

within the RNC when he so valiantly drummed out the Ron Paul delegates, thus stealing the nomination! (The same goes for former Ron Paul supporters who did not vote third party.) (for those who are not familiar with the 'color purple' at DP, anything this color is sarcastically stated)

You handed the election to Obama when you dissed Ron Paul, but that's what you intended all along, wasn't it?

Thank you

DP community can make and have all the issues it wants with me about my Romney vote, however, I petitoned and qualified, was elected and have a seat by local Republicans who want a Ron Paul Republican on the committee. That Romney vote kept my committee seat, and to me, that is more important that Ron Paul Republicans are in the seats.. so now we are in the seats. Now we have a liberty committee. Now we see the convention floors with Ron Paul books and LIBERTY on everything from posters to tee shirts spanning caucuses an candidates speaches.

While I didn't agree with GJ on much, why would I vote FOR GJ who I didn't agree with, lose my seat and then do what? Wait for the next selection? Come on.

So, I think in the big picture I did the right thing for my county and self, and sorry DP community thinks that even if all 500 Ron Paul national delegates (there are not that many) voted GJ and not Romney.. Ron Paul would have won.

((Hugs)) I apologize for coming off so judgementally,

To your own conscience you stand or fall. We all need to do what our conscience bids us do, and apparently I am the weaker sister on this issue. I have to admit, Obama's encroachments have done more to 'fire up the desire for liberty in a waking populace' than almost anything else could. I as well am thankful for grace and forgiveness, so you are forgiven. Am I?

I love you


You did what you did.

So did I.

I am thankful that forgiveness exists, we are both in valuable positions :-)

Thank you for forgiving me.


It might be what some of the people are doing on the Democrat side. Vote for Obama to hang on to a seat, then work from there.

I'm sure

The Clinton VS Obama Democrats was a huge fight here. At one point there was accusations of sign stealing, and the thought occured to me they might think it was Ron Paul, so I contacted the Obama campaign manager and told them that we didn't touch anyone's signs, and they told me, they know.. they know who did it and by what they said it was obvious it was Dem Vs Dem.. and that person was replaced when Obama became the Dem nominee.. I'm sure the fights for seats was hot and I'm sure there are bad feelings still between the Dems.

I have never voted for a winning presiential candidate and hopefully Rand will be that person. Meanwhile.. I sincerely feel bad for those who belieed in Obama.
