screw these guys and screw the RNC

They have no interest in our ideas. They have no interest in REAL change.

Notice they blew off the Fed question near the end.

I think that is a harbinger of how much respect the RNC will give RP and his issues in the future.................. Despite the big-tent rhetoric.

Looking back on the RNC, and the money spent to influence

Delegates: The Delegate Reception, (compliments of the U.S. Taxpayer) was SOooo lavish to the point of being almost obscene! I was appalled to think of all the food that must have gone to waste. I have never seen such an extravagant display of hors d'oeuvres! Free drinks, huge roasts or ham, beef etc. and desserts beyond the imagination of the taxpayers whose money was confiscated to pay for it! This reception was planned by the Republican Party, the party of conservative (?) values and fiscal responsibility!
Remembering this, and Mike Duncan's comments as to the 'respect' he afforded the Ron Paul delegates I have come to this conclusion:
Yes, we were wined and dined as were ALL the delegates--but the 'security' measures Duncan's minions put in place to spy and control us were despicable!

Duncan, you lying sack of green monkey dung!---

How dare you lie like that!

Your people at the RNC treated us like Dirt.

Duncan was so obviously lying

I cannot believe for a second that people who know ANYTHING about the RNC would believe a word he said.

Michael Steele

I like him.

He was the keynote speaker at our Alaska State GOP convention last winter.

RP2012!

He spoke badly of Ron Paul

He spoke badly of Ron Paul on Fox News. Steele said he shouldn't be allowed in the debates during the primary.
I looked, but couldn't find the youtube.

He never said that

He only offered commentary that he thought RP was "done" after an early debate.

How does that equate to not allowing RP in the debates?????

Heck, many of us could have sworn John McCain was "done" in mid to late 2007.

the best of the lot

I've heard him for a couple of hours when he took over for a talk show host and seemed to be self-effacing, had a good sense of humor, and seemed real. I must admit, I liked him as well.

Michael Steele

Here's the clip you were looking for...

And yeah he sits in for former drug czar neocon shill Bill Bennett. He sucks, are you really surprised that all the canidates for RNC chair are scum???

Ha

Hollywood is great, isn't it? How did they get those empty suits to move around like that with no one in them.
Damn-it you morons...Buy a clue!!!

This is so sad. They are

This is so sad. They are perverting our movement for their personal political gain...the exact opposite of what it's supposedly about.

Also, there is an interesting flip side to this. In other words, Paul is, ironically, Republican for political reasons. Granted he may associate with the label in reference to a past identity but that's past. I'm not saying he shouldn't stick to his guns. He absolutely should. It's just interesting to see all these politicians want to use him and us. And they can't say, "Come on, look this is a bogus question. Ron Paul and his supporters are a different animal. The question is moot." If they did that, they wouldn't get the job of politician. Vote for me: I don't do candor; I pander.

Not one of these Sonsabitches...

mentioned the Constitution. Not one of these Sonsabitches realize that it wasn't the man, it was the message. None of them deserve the chairmanship.

That's the spirit

Pocketed one and all.

"There can be only one permanent revolution - a moral one: The regeneration of the inner man."
—Tolstoy

"The body is but a vessel for the soul,
A puppet which bends to the soul's tyranny.
And lo, the body is not eternal,
For it must feed on the flesh of others,
Lest it return to the dust whence it came.
Therefore the soul deceives and despises."

yessir

its not the man its the message... they just dont get it.

only one person came close to the situation

The gentleman who said, the Republican party can no longer be a social club. That person would be my pick from the bunch. I think he articulated correctly the gear shift needed to continue the party. I hope he makes it.

LivingTheDream

That "gentleman"

is Ken Blackwell, who basically instituted "Jim Crow" techniques to make sure Ohio went to Bush instead of Kerry in 2004. Now, I didn't give a crap either way who won the 2004 presidential election, but I do care about the elections being run freely and fairly. Ken Blackwell is a traitor to his race and a piece of sleeze.

OH WOW!!

Nice article.... I mean alot of people must have seen this ...vs very few may have seen the Cspan debate....

thanks

The correct answer should have been...

"We have done Ron Paul a great disservice by not having him involved in the reformation of the Republican Party. He should have been on this stage with us right now, helping to guide the future of this party. Instead, we excluded him. We are doomed to more failure unless we have him involved in reforming the Republican Party. We need to put him in a powerful leadership position if we are going to survive."

Register as Republican and Vote for Ron Paul

icky fed summation

~

I think that *icky fed* remark...

...hey, a new term has been coined here...

...was the the final big diss...the punctuation mark for their whole exchange...oh, dose naive Won Paw suppawtuhs...if dey can hang wit da grownups for awhile dey'll get ovah dis teething stage.

Typical

As usual, these people in the debate care nothing for the country, it is all about the party first. The big tent mentality is the problem. They don't care about the ideas or the best interest of the country; they care about growing the party. I am insulted that they believe Ron Paul supporters are carried away by his charisma. They saw the power of a cult of personality, ala Obama supporters and are eager to cash in on that power. They don't realize that Ron Paul supporters care for his ideas, that there are people who believe that principles matter, especially where it concerns individual liberty, like the framers of our Constitution envisioned. Not the perverted form of government that we have at this time. The Framers understood the inherent corruption of government, the seduction of power.

The main reason that the Republicans had there asses handed to them is that there is no discernible difference between the two parties. Both attempt to purchase votes by offering hope and promises of handouts for those who have no idea what a bum deal they are getting, by allowing the government to do for them, what they will not do for themselves. I believe that Ben Franklin said, "Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."

Another quote I like is from George Washington in regards to party politics. "However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion."

I had to rant. I don’t think people understand or even care about the erosion of our society, and that it is by design.

Erghh!!!!!!!!!! It's

Erghh!!!!!!!!!! It's possible Ben may have written that phrase but it so annoys me because it's so overused and not definitive he wrote that. It is documented he did write:

"Sell not virtue to purchase wealth, nor Liberty to purchase power"

It's in Poor Richards.

Your right!!!!!!!!!!!

I still like the quote, in the future, I will make sure to not reference Franklin. Good catch!

The quote is taken from, "A Historical Review of the Constitution and Government of Pennsylvania," first published anonymously in London in 1759. The quote is an excerpt from a letter written in 1755 from the Assembly to the Governor of Pennsylvania.

Benjamin Franklin did publish the edition printed in Philadelphia in 1812, and most likely the original, but denied writing any part of it. The quote however may have originated from Franklin, but was excerpted for the book by the author.

A very similar quote is also sometimes attributed to Thomas Jefferson. However the website for the Jefferson Library makes it clear that Jefferson was quoting Franklin.

OH GOODY!

A LIST EXCHANGE!

i would like to know, specifically...

just what part of Ron Paul's platform that each one of these "suits" disagree with...

they each made it a point to say they didn't agree with RP on everything...ok, what do you NOT agree with?

O Captain, My Captain, rise up and hear the bells!

first hunch?

that they'd disagree with his foreign policy...these schmucks are so entrenched in military-industrial lobby it will make your head spin. and if that is true, then their statements about the fed being "icky" are patently false because we wouldn't be able to continue our empire without the fed.

so, basically, these crooks disagree with the two main positions that drive the interest in Ron Paul's message.
