"It's a good thing they didn't nominate Ron Paul. He would be doing a lot better than Romney."
Nice work, RNC!

"Rand Paul Aids Romney and Ryan in Ohio"
I propose an alliance between two of the "factions" of the Liberty Movement.
I am a Gary Johnson supporter. Why? I hope to register a large enough percentage of a protest vote for Johnson to send a message. And if by some miracle he gets in the debates, we can position ourselves to win.
However, those who are going to write in Ron Paul? I totally get it. You guys aren't compromising, you're voting for the best man for the job. You don't care what they think, you're voting your heart, through and through.
I am back once again, I think many of you have now realised I no longer make videos for Ron Paul, this does not however mean I have lost my passion and drive to create videos. I recently listen to an Alan Watts lecture and was instantly inspired to make a video for it, this was the end result. I really hope you enjoy thanks!
“I frankly think that crisis initiation is really tough,” said Patrick Clawson, who also heads the Washington Institute’s Iran Security Initiative, in response to a question about what would happen if negotiations with Tehran fail. “And it’s very hard for me to see how the United States … uh … President can get us to war with Iran.
"The only issue in this election contest between Pee Wee Herman and Captain Kangaroo is how to do nothing to disturb the fantasy that we can keep living the way we do. I am coming to detest Mr. Obama for the unforgivable feats of doing absolutely nothing to oppose, resist, or remedy the Supreme Court's Citizens United decision, and doing absolutely nothing to restore the rule-of-law in banking. Mr. Romney, at this point, can only be pitied as some kind of thought-experiment gone awry in an evil consumer product testing lab on a planet of oafs. His fecklessness has no modern analog. Next to Romney, Bob Dole looks Lincolnesque."

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) — One of the leading hawks on the Federal Reserve slammed the central bank’s new asset purchase program on Tuesday, saying that it wasn’t necessary, wouldn’t work and is risky.
“We are unlikely to see much benefit to growth or employment from further asset purchases,” said Charles Plosser, the president of the Philadelphia Fed Bank, in a speech to financial market trade groups in Philadelphia.
Many in the Republican establishment are now claiming the Ron Paul people will split the vote therefore giving the election to Obama.
I am a former Rush Limbaugh, Hannity, Fox, Republican until someone told me the trurh. Now it is sooo obvious. How could I ever have been fooled?
But I would like to know how many would consider themselves former Republicans and former Democrats.
Many of us already voted libertarian or third party.
Let us conduct our own informal poll to see what the percentage is?
The Examiner: When Ross Perot ran as a third-party candidate, he took just enough votes to guarantee a Bill Clinton presidency. Today, the Ron Paul supporters who refuse to vote for Mitt Romney because he’s not “pure” enough may well guarantee an Obama re-election.
Today’s polling tells us that the election is going to be close. While one can interpret the polling data and the sampling methods to show a variety of results, there can be no disputing that the outcome is far from pre-determined and decided.
QE3 has barely even started and some folks on Wall Street are already clamoring for QE4. In fact, as you will read below, one equity strategist at Morgan Stanley says that he would not be "surprised" if the Federal Reserve announced another new round of money printing by the end of the year. But this is what tends to happen when a financial system starts becoming addicted to easy money. There is always a deep hunger for another "hit" of "currency meth". Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke was probably hoping that QE3 would satisfy the wolves on Wall Street for a while.

"...it is truly backwards for Schlichter to implore libertarians to “support the Constitution” by casting a vote for the Republican Party. Here’s a better idea:
How about you start supporting the Constitution? And how about you actually make an effort to incorporate libertarians by, for starters, not dismissing them only until it becomes politically necessary to beg for their support?"
People like to say “a vote for anyone other than Romney, is a vote for Obama”. I’d like to say that a vote for Romney, is a vote against Rand Paul in 2016.
For those in the Liberty movement thinking of playing the “lesser of two evils” game, which tends to be the Rand Paul supporters of the Liberty movement, let me remind you that you’re hurting Rand’s chance at the White House. If Romney wins, Rand will not challenge Romney in 2016. He’s worked too hard to win favor with the party, to risk it all with a long shot mid-term challenge.
Which is the REAL threat?
