He's merely casting a net to catch fish

I didn't support Romney. Fact is, no one on my committee supported Romney.. not even the neocons.. No one voted for Romney in the primary, so we all became equals by the general election. I honestly believe, it was one reason many neocons got out. They saw what was going on and while they may not have agreed with Ron Paul, they didn't agree with the GOP leadership even more.

I think Ron Paul saw all this coming.. it's why he ran, not to win. I don't believe he ran to win because he KNEW he didn't have the seats.. but his message would call people to the seats, and it did. And folks like Rove are very worried.. When I met him at the CA GOP convention, I could tell he was worried.. the floor was full of rEVOLutionairies.. they were the action, the juice.. the tea party was pissed and rebelling while the rEVOLution was full of energy and life, their booth always had people, while the others went from selling things, to giving away what they had, and no one was quick to pick yp the freebees.

People here like to talk about principle, but I don't think they understand what principle is.. you see principle means that you do what you say you are going to do, even when it's not what you want to do.

I got signatures from people I KNOW, neighbors, associates, to get that seat, to get Ron Paul the nomination.. I had to sign those loyalty oaths.. I didn't want to join the GOP. I didn't want to sign loyalty oaths. I wanted Ron Paul to get the nomination and I did what I didn't want to do to help him.. and as I watched the whole thing go to hell.. I was on the hook. Ron Paul is waxing about "The Golden Rule" and doing to others what you want them to do to you.. and you better believe, If Ron Paul won the nomination I would want the Neos to keep their loyalty oaths.. so how could I not?

Didn't matter what I WANTED.. It mattered that I kept my word, my oaths. That is principle. Now we're in, and the hard part is over.. no more broken bones, no more censorship, no more silencers.. it's a different inside fight.. "Who is going to the biggest GOP party in decades in 2016?"

I really don't care what GJ or the Dems or who any party runs for pres, and for what reason.. it doesn't matter at all. What matters is that we get Rand the nomination.. it will be a good fight. I'm looking forward to it..

Now don't get me wrong.. I don't expect most here on DP to be interested.. we will probably be parting ways by then. MN and others will have their candidates, and it WON'T BE RAND. I got that message LOUD AND CLEAR, and I'm fine with it.
