Why the HELL is Eugene Flynn trying to UNSEAT Ron Paul in his district??

UPDATE: I TONED DOWN MY MESSAGE A BIT. I checked the TX-LP website and it seems They do not endorse this moron's actions. I appologise to the TX LP. This is an individual act
Okay before I go sleep. Ill leave this question and hope for good answers by morning.
I noticed this last night & IM NOW SERIOUSLY PISSED & WILL FIND A HARD TIME SLEEPING SINCE I REMEMBERED THIS CRAP!
Why the heck is a libertarian candidate running against Ron Paul for his Congressional seat?
Why the Heck is he to unseat the only True Conservative from his seat while he made their party famous?(Yes before Ron Paul I never heard of this party & if it wasnt for him I probably never wouldve heard of it)
Even the Democrats arent doing that. They wont even bother.
Yes he has very little chance to win but you never know. Also its kind of a smack in the face of Ron Paul and his supporters.
Im really disgusted and sick to the stomach.
So now Chris Peden is gone and Ron Paul has to waste more money to campaign because of this turd whos trying to make fame like Peed In
Although most Libertarians support Ron Paul I just realized that "Some" Libertarians are their own worst enemy!

Eugene J. Flynn (L)

Internet Excerpt on why Flynn is running against the Good Doctor.
Want to know why?
Because Flynn wants To open the borders for Illegal Immigration and provide more jobs for Illegals.
What a douchebag dips***

According to the Libertarian Party of Texas, Flynn tried to run against Paul as a Libertarian in 2006, but party members chose not to nominate a candidate against the Lake Jackson Republican at their spring convention.

Wes Benedict, executive director of the Texas party, said in an e-mail that he expects to be blasted “over this,” meaning Flynn’s challenge…

Benedict quoted Flynn as saying: “I agree with Ron Paul about 80 percent of the time. The problem is the other 20 percent is the most important to me, that is, immigration. … Ron Paul offers no way to allow those illegally in the U.S. to get right with the law. Instead he wants to spend more and more money to create bigger bureaucracies to secure our borders to protect us from needed workers.”

Contacted by e-mail Thursday, Flynn said; “We need a guest worker program NOW! One way to help get it is to defeat the (immigration) restrictionists such as Ron Paul.” He noted that as the party’s nominee for chief justice of the Texas Supreme Court in 2002, he drew 80,185 votes, just under 2 percent, statewide.

It's his prerogative to run for the office if he wants to. If you live in that district, you can vote for RP or someone else as your conscience indicates.

Time for NotOverYet to go away

I've been following the posts on here for almost a year, and in recent months this "NotOverYet" character has crossed the line time and time again.

He constantly posts on tangential topics, distracts us from the mission at hand with inflammatory challenges, and violates the rules of this forum.

In this post alone, he has:

1. Made a fool of himself by making inaccurate charges he later had to correct.

2. Brought up a completely trivial topic. Who cares if a rogue Libertarian wants to challenge Paul? If, after getting all the facts, NotOverYet started a thread calling on us to condemn Flynn, it would be accurate but meaningless. So what? Paul isn't going to lose. He's not going to have to spend money or time on this challenger. The challenger probably won't even call Paul on the carpet or demand he debate, and he won't receive institutional support from the Texas LP. Ultimately, this is nothing more than a "paper candidate" looking to nudge Paul to one side on his pet issue (immigration).

3. NotOverYet continues to oboxious practice of "self-bumping." I oppose "bumping" (posts that add nothing to the discussion and are naked attempts to "bump" the thread higher on the active list so it gets more attention) period, but respect Michael Nystrom's reluctatnt tolerance of it. However, Nystrom's rules explicitly forbid bumping your own threads.

Time and time again, NotOverYet has proven himself to be one of a handful of posters here who are essentially spamming the forum to promote themselves. While he's not one of the ones promoting a website (::cough:: LionsForLambs and PoliticalLore ::cough::), he's worse in many ways.

I think it's time NotOverYet either changed his behavior or gets "bumped" off the site. His nonsensical, rule-violating diatribes add very little to the movement.

Finally !

Someone is with me on all this garbage.
With that being said, i think the subject matter actually is On Topic, but lacking execution. And the self-bumping....make it stop. It only makes this place that much more hectic and i am forced to chase REAL important info.

I Have Seen The Constitution

...And, yes, I have seen The Constitution

I know some LP folks in

I know some LP folks in Idaho get on the ballot just to preserve ballot access. They don't campaign etc. Just file and that's it.

how about a positive conspiracy theory?

Lets say this LP guy is a decent replacement for the good doctor. Now, if RP drops out so he can run.... well won't it be too late for the D's or the R's to get someone else on the ballot in that district, pretty much guaranteeing a win for the LP guy? hmmmm....

wow So you think they will vote for a guy calling for open borde

wow Ron Paul will drop out for this nice Open border gentelman?
why would he do that?
Ron Paul isnt even endorsing RP Republicans running against incumbent Republicans. It is called respect

I have been thinking bad thoughts

about suspicious going-ons at the Libertarian Party & this is another creepy one.

There are a lot of people who call themselves Libertarian who put out smear and hit pieces on Ron Paul. This includes the pro-Bob Barr ilk.

Don't let yourself be sucked in just because it's a 3rd party. It's all about integrity of the candidate -- and that would only apply to Ron Paul.

blakmira pls read my update. The TX-LP is innocent.

Its an individual act by a moronic libertarian
