A plea from inside the Santorum camp: Work with Ron Paul

This is from a Rick Santorum coordinator in Washington State.  I edited it down because of length.  In this District they captured 17/18 Santorum/Paul Delegates and 17/18 Santorum/Paul Alternates.  Mitt Romney got zero.

The statement of the Rick Santorum coordinator:

What was done in Pierce County started the idea of both Paul and Santorum’s camps coming together.  It was an act by the people to overrule the establishment, the money, the same old solutions to problems, by the same old people that helped create those problems in the first place.

We as ordinary citizens took it upon ourselves to come together as one in unity for a common goal to make our voices heard. We put aside party and put our country first. We listened to each other as we came to a common ground on issues with mutual respect that fostered trust amongst us.

We actually accomplished in one afternoon what we as citizens ask of our leaders to do when they represent us in our nation’s capitol. In this country where checks and balances are so often a thing of the past, we common people came together as one to say No! We want something better for America’s future. In a very real sense, what we have in delegates is a check that balances the power of votes that are bought through the power of ten second sound bites we call commercials. Surely such a thing has to strike fear in the establishment so heavily vested in backing Romney.

The delegate system can be used as a reward to those willing to get off the couch and actually try and make a difference through grass roots efforts where they are free to make any alliances they choose. This is a far better use of delegates than rewarding those that just watch the television and simply show up to vote.

How big was Romney’s grass roots campaign again? Well, in the 25th District caucus he had ONE guy holding a political sign, virtually no political signs were seen about the community, and he had no representative speaker. So much for the claim to being “organized.” Depending on how delegate votes are used it can say we must do more as citizens than just showing up to vote. This is not the time for ordinary people to be sitting back and letting somebody else dictate to them what this country’s future will look like or if they’ll continue to keep the freedoms so many fought so hard to get and protect for us. Each individual must take bold steps and take action to preserve the gifts given us. At some point, and it might as well be now, people are going to reign back power from party leaders, unite and actually make something like a Paul/Santorum unity slate work. As I see it, it’s the only way to balance power, restore it back to the people and take it away from big money.

Those against such an alliance, especially elected state delegates, might want to address future problems and complaints concerning government to the person in the mirror. I fail to see the logic in people not trusting such an arrangement that both Paul and Santorum’s people have agreed to, yet they’ll trust the same people running the party for years that have helped bring us to this junction in history.

Case (s) in point with the current establishment: Why has the Republican Congress sat by idle as Obama used our military in Libya without their consent? Why has Attorney General Eric Holder not been brought up on charges by the judiciary committee?  Any actions on their part has been pure window dressing and indicative of future responses. What will it take for them to act and at what point will it be too late for all of us? THIS, is what is meant by the term “establishment,” and by and large the same ones endorsing Romney.

Personally, I trust the common Joe more than those behind the scenes that have attempted to buy, and in some cases, outright steal this nomination. Some may feel the “back room” deal between the Paul and Santorum camps, that was made right out in the open corridors of the convention, may be divisive, underhanded or cause disruption at the state convention.

Good!!! Given the Romney camp record in several states it was about time to put a stop to their practices.

Many lessons can be learned from the 25th District where Romney got the big goose egg. We need to embrace the energized supporters of Paul. We need to stop treating them like 2nd class citizens with off the wall ideals and give them props for the amazing accomplishments they’ve made in the grass roots arena.

What I found in talking with many of them is they are very intelligent independent thinkers that have a genuine love for their country. We must let their voices be heard. They’ve earned it and whether you agree or disagree with them, they’re here to stay. I’d rather have them on our side than the alternative.

I came away from the convention with a totally new perspective on things.  I’d like to hope I made some lifelong friends in the process.

We citizens of the 25th District stopped Romney cold and said, “not in our house!”

You as state delegates, right now, have the opportunity to make perhaps one of the biggest contributions to our nation’s history. It’s a precious gift and awesome responsibility that few get to experience. Nobody can predict the future, but we can learn from the past. We know that in 1976 we failed to nominate a conservative Ronald Reagan and got a Jimmy Carter and all accompanying pitfalls.

We’re repeating history putting forth Romney and you as common patriots have the power in your votes to put a stop to it. Now is the time to put country first and for leaders to step up and rise to the occasion. Now is the time to return the power back to the people. Years from now, what story will you tell your kids and grand kids?

    Why is there a Obama for American advertisement on a Ron Paul page?

    • Doug Wead says:

      What page? Send me the link please. That’s one of the reasons I don’t allow ads on my pages. You can’t control who advertises. Ha. Obama is smart. Ron Paul voters can read. They don’t just watch television news.

    • tex2 says:

      Because he has the money.

      • tex3 says:

        Wasnt that our money?

      • tex2 says:

        No, it was his contributors’ money. Barry is taking our money and using it ti make our government bigger and expand socialism.

      • His contributors (also Romney’s) use the government to steal it from us to make our government bigger as part of whatever the Endgame is. It is a bi-partisan screw-job.

      • tex2 says:

        Yes, it’s another conspiracy. LOL

        Look, we have problems, but RP isn’t the answer. The answer as far as I’m concerned is term limits for Congress, 12 years maximum, and you can’t do 12 in one and then 12 more in the other. So if you want to stop spinning your wheels with RP and supporting REAL change, let’s do something productive.

      • Oh, that’s right…. Amway is behind all of the world’s evil. Duly noted. Well, when you look at PNAC, Operation Endgame and Agenda 21… then add in how a Republican can pass The Patriot Act and then a Democrat can pass the NDAA. it becomes very obvious something is going on that does not benefit the citizens of the US of A. Yeah, it’s all an accident, though. “It’s cuz they hate us for our freedom! We need to get rid of our freedom to be safe! Cave dwellers are coming! Arrrrgh!”

      • Again, I don’t disagree with you completely on term limits. What do you propose? Let’s make it happen. Which Goldman-Sachs candidate should we hope gets selected for us? Tell us. Don’t Bogart the knowledge.

      • tex2 says:

        I think the Tea Party is the best place to propose this change, in the form of a Constitutional Amendment. Therefore, there is no candidate involved, Goldman-Sachs or anyone else with sacks of gold. Is that Bogart-less enough for you?

      • tex2 says:

        Oh, that’s right…. Amway is behind all of the world’s evil. —> I never said that, you flaming IDIOT. LOL

        Duly noted. —> Likewise, I’m sure. LOL

        Well, when you look at PNAC, —> This organization no longer exists, and hasn’t for over half a decade. LOL

        Operation Endgame —> This is obvious a pitiful failure compared to its goals. LOL

        and Agenda 21…—> Another failure when compared to its goals. LOL

        then add in how a Republican can pass The Patriot Act —> Passed by both R & Ds, is designed and largely HAS protected us from another terrorist attack, and has an expiration date. Is it a little scary with the wrong administration in place? Yes, but not as scary as a weekly 9/11 type event, and I believe there are plenty of good people that would prevent widespread abuse. LOL

        and then a Democrat can pass the NDAA. —> Also passed by R & Ds, and I’ve already commented on not liking some of the provisions.

        it becomes very obvious something is going on that does not benefit the citizens of the US of A. —> Yes, mainly Paulites scaring up conspiracy theories and looking like nutjobs to the other 90-95% of us. LOL

        Yeah, it’s all an accident, though. “It’s cuz they hate us for our freedom! We need to get rid of our freedom to be safe! Cave dwellers are coming! Arrrrgh!” —> I already covered that fallacy as well. You don’t read very well for comprehension very well, do you? And you wanted to be my SEO? LOL

      • It doesn’t matter if the organization doesn’t exist anymore, the PNAC document alone is a red flag. You think Rand Corp is hearts and flowers? You don’t know much about the other things (Agenda 21 and OEG), so we’ll leave those for now. You’ll go to any lengths to maintain your doublethink. so there’s no point in debating you. But I do know that Amway is a reputable retailer and to think less is a conspiracy theory, you tinfoil-hat-wearing freak. LOL

      • tex2 says:

        It doesn’t matter if the organization doesn’t exist anymore, the PNAC document alone is a red flag. –> No comment necessary. LOL

        You think Rand Corp is hearts and flowers? —> You mean it isn’t? LOL

        You don’t know much about the other things (Agenda 21 and OEG), so we’ll leave those for now. —> How do you know how much I know about those? LOL

        You’ll go to any lengths to maintain your doublethink. so there’s no point in debating you. —> You’ll go to any lengths to maintain your conspiracy theories, so there’s a point debating you, revealing your stupidity! LOL

        But I do know that Amway is a reputable retailer and to think less is a conspiracy theory, you tinfoil-hat-wearing freak. LOL —> Then you can explain why India regulates the tool prices and the UK allows zero profit on the tools. LOL

      • I’m sure you got all the answers, dude. After all, one of the benefits of losing a ton of money to Amway is omnipotence.

      • tex2 says:

        I never claimed either one, but thanks for the stupid comment. LOL

      • RON PAUL LOSES, GOP LOSES says:

        tex2, looks like your man rick santorum dropped out; left you out; allllll your ENDLESS typing was futile; —> Where did I support only Santorum? I could be happy with any of the last 4 EXCEPT Ron Paul. LOL

        see RON PAUL AND HIS SUPPORTERS WILL NEVER GIVE UP; i guess u will vote for mittens romney out of _____ what? why? —> Because he doesn’t put the country in extreme danger, as Ron Paul would do. LOL

      • tex2 says:

        tex2 the future of the gop RON PAULS REVOLUTION; —> Your “REVOLUTION” has been going on since 1988, and just fizzled out for the third time. The GOP will NEVER go for a bunch of druggie and “freedom at any cost” nutjobs.

        we are organizing to stay in politics locally for the future; you just don’t see it; –> I see, the GOP saw it and dealt with it. LOL

      He it makes money for Dr. Paul, more powert to them. Is anyone here really going to be swayed by it?

    I’m not sure I understand this article… so in order to stop Romney we had to support Santorum? NO WAY!

    • annebeck58 says:

      Send me an email or a DM in twitter– I will explain it to you!

    • tex2 says:

      And you wonder why Ron Paul has accomplished so little….

      • @tex2 Ive only read but 2 of your comments from above,{two too many} one regarding the Patriot act and 9/11 my dear-grow a spine with some backbone first of all! I swear with the whole rhetoric of “for our safety” 9/11 was with the help of our Govts ignorance and negligence. Attacking Iran with the lies of WMD, is just fine and dandy? Ron Paul and limiting Congress terms is true and in need of, which Ron Paul has petitioned to do. That’s why he’s so Dangerous, only not to the Citizens but those perveting othe offices of our Federal buidlings So, how tightening the grip on regular citizens improves their job? Adding more offices/depts to their already insubordinate and dereliction ones they already have is real progress as per the way you see it? ‘HOW IS THE PATRIOT ABLE TO READ AND ACKNOWLEDGE A MEMO FROM BINLADEN OF IMMINENT ATTACK COMING THAT SAT ON WHOSE DESK THAT AUG. OF 2001? SO, lolololol that you wuss..

      • annebeck58 says:

        Hahaha.. lololol this, you wusss; HILARIOUS!

        Personally, I won’t be bothered by the troll. It convinced me to respond, yesterday, by omitting it’s usual rants and insanely maniacal “laughter”, but never again. Who needs it?
        Sad, though, that it cannot and will not comprehend that what has been proffered by both MSM and GOVT is so ridiculous, most children see it’s a huge farce and.or fairy-tale. Yet, #2 can’t see that? Of course, it is NOT a Texan, and is hardly an American- it has nothing to say but will copy and paste- from here and from other blogs- then adds, “lol”. Some people don’t see it has nothing to say though it so obviously and completely lacks the intellect required to form sentences.
        Were the idiot in the US, same idiot would be placed in the ESL class, obviously.

      • annebeck58 says:

        Hey, again, Lynn.
        Ignore the troll. It’s not American and does not comprehend future tense. it needs some ESL classes (and bet it has no idea what that means), But,watch; that idiot will copy and paste every part of you (and my) comments and will simply add: LOL.
        I hope it chokes on its’ next “LOL” and it will be a Palestinian ambulance that is sent out to render assitance.

        The FREAK is not American. it is SIX hours ahead of the US, in time (thoug it says it has its’ OWN clock– and does not go by GMT? what a TOOL). It has no vote and really has ZERO say in OUR elections. What an obnoxious idiot.

      • tex2 says:

        You need to read more, or you’ll stay stupid. LOL

        We didn’t attack Iran, you IDIOT. LOL

        And when we attacked Iraq, it was based on more than just the WMD, and many other countries’ intelligence organizations agreed with our assessment. You’re so powerfully stupid it’s funny. LOL

        A letter of a general attack is not actionable. LOL

        How’s THAT, you wuss…LOL

      • DT says:

        George Galloway Educates tex2 back when Bush was President

      • annebeck58 says:

        Actually, DT; tex2 should be pronounced: text-ewww. It’s not a TEXAN, though it has appropriated and abused the flag of the good state of Texas. Yes, we do have more than our fair share of dolts, here, such as Perrry and the Bushes, but i highly doubt the imbicile, text-ewwww has the slightest thing to do with Texas! It posted, the other day (evening), and pointed out its’ recent post from ~4:30am, yet it had not even hit midnight, in Texas or anywhere within the USA.
        This tool likes for people to believe it’s American, and Texan, but don’t believe it. In fact, don’t believe (or read or pay any mind to) whatever that lunkhead has to say.
        Love George, though; I’ve been listening to him since I first realized Israhell is an apartheid state. Sadly, for me, it took Cast-lead Ops for me to open my eyes to that truth. And, between George Galloway and Jewish Voice for Peace (as well as other Jewish family and friends), I got my head right as far as the Bastard-State is concerned.
        Now, if only we could vote-IN intelligent people, to U.S. Congress and White-house, who don’t talk only beccause AIPAC’s (the Ape_Pac’s) hands are up their rear-ends, the US should be well on the way to recovery!

        Hey, again, Lynn. —> This is tex2, I don’t respond to Anne, but I will write you a message on an open forum. LOL

        Ignore the troll. —> Ignore the nutcase, she’s a small minority in Texas, and we can all thank God for that. Thank you, God. LOL

        It’s not American and does not comprehend future tense. —> She likes to refer to me as “it” and that the 90-95% of voters who do not vote for Ron “Independent Paul (RIP) are not American, idiots, etc., but all she is doing is looking in her mirror. LOL

        it needs some ESL classes (and bet it has no idea what that means), —> I know what ESL stands for, and it’s unfortunate we can’t send Anne back to her original country, but sadly she is an American IDIOT. LOL

        But,watch; that idiot will copy and paste every part of you (and my) comments and will simply add: LOL. —> LOL LOL

        what a TOOL). It has no vote and really has ZERO say in OUR elections. What an obnoxious idiot. —> I’ll be voting for the WINNER in November, which will most probably be Mitt Romney! LOL

      • tex2 says:

        By the way, I’ll talk with Anne or anybody else on the phone, to prove how stupid they are and to prove I am who I say I am, but she’s probably too scared and stupid to take me up on it. LOL

    • tex2 says:

      I can explain it right here. Keep Romney from getting a majority of the delegates, and try to win a brokered convention. There’s your “top secret” plan, for all to see. LOL

      • See, he’s not such a bad guy after all. I’m sure that was actually helpful to her and some people who don’t understand the delegate process.

      • annebeck58 says:

        Michael; what the tool does not get is that’s not ALL of it.
        Duh!== him.her.

      • Regardless, his comment was actually helpful. Let’s try and be peaceful. I’m hoping there’s a truce here.

      • tex2 says:

        I didn’t say it was ALL of it. But it is, by far, the most important part of it. Another few aspects are:

        1. Note how the dynamic was Santorum reaching out to RP, as Santorum has a history of reaching out to others to get something done. Ron Paul doesn’t do that, he just sits there with his arms, legs, and eyes crossed, holding his breath. I doubt RP is even capable of reaching out. LOL

        2. Santorum doesn’t have to “plea” to RP, and I’m not even sure it is a good idea to even offer to work with RP, it may cause more people to question Santorum’s sanity, and therefore lower, rather than it does increase, his overall support. LOL

        3. This story is pure conjecture, we don’t know if it is true or made up by Doug Wead in order to create news. Notice how Doug didn’t post the actual email date/source, plus he “edited” to shorten it. Did he take out salient parts that would change the entire meaning of the communication? He’s done it before, I doubt he would hesitate to do it again. LOL

      • tex2 says:

        And of course I’m not a bad guy, just a seasoned blogger who knows cyber bullies when he sees them, and knows how to handle them and put them in their rightful places. LOL

      • I’ve got bad news for you tex, Ron Paul will reach out again in 2012 just like he did in 2008 when he held that press conference and united The Greens, Ralph Nader, the Constitution Party, and the Libertarians behind his 4 most important policy positions (foreign affairs/militarism, privacy/civil liberties, federal reserve, and balanced budget).

        But his time its going to be 1 fustion ticket: Libertarian Judge Nap/Green Ralph Nader with Ron Paul’s full endorsement.

        Sorry to disappoint you and Lockheed/Martin by reminding you that Ron Paul is going to keep reaching out.

      • tex2 says:

        I think it’s too late for him to budge. He’s spent too many decades fixed and frozen in his self imposed straightjacket array of “freedom at any cost” mantra. To change now would drive a lot of his sycophant supporters to another fringe group, such as the Green Party or Libertarian Party. The only thing keeping them in the “grownups” Republican Party is Ron Paul.

      • RON PAUL LOSES, GOP LOSES says:

        i love your insults when like “STUPID” “STRAIGHTJACKET” AND MORE
        BOY, YOUR CANDIDATE LOSING IS REALLY HURTING YOUR FRAGILE EGO HUH?
        mittens not looking too good even with all the bankster backing and all the establishment media huh? hahaha
        what do you mean “freedom at any cost”; ahhhhh, let me see first we had THE PATRIOT ACT; NOW THE ASSASSINATION OF AMERICANS W/O CHARGE OR TRIAL; NDAA – INDEFINITE IMPRISONMENT OF AMERICANS W/O CHARGE OR TRIAL; 30,000 DRONES SPYING ON AMERICANS; SCAMERAS EVERYWHERE; TSA HIGH SCHOOL FLUNKIES STRIP SEARCHING AMERICANS; SUPREME COURT SAYING STRIP SEARCHES OK FOR SIMPLE TRAFFIC VIOLATIONS …
        HOW ABOUT YOU TEX2 ARE THE STUPID STRAIGHJACKET WEARING MORON? NEXT THING U KNOW HE WILL SAY I AM COMMITTING ONLINE BULLYING; WAH, WAH, WAH – GO CRY TO SOMEBODY ELSE TEX2
        THIS IS NO FREEDOM AT ALL

        ONLY RON PAUL IS AGAINST ALL THE ABOVE
        PLEASE VOTE FOR RON PAUL EVERYBODY

      • I don’t think it’s a “freedom at any cost” mantra. Most of us just don’t see how bombing innocent women and children in foreign lands makes us any friends. Sure, we’re kooks, I’ll admit it.

      • annebeck58 says:

        Oh, but, that (bombing innocents, murdering people on the other side of the world, warring with or on people who have no desire to injure us) is Obama’s effort of “peace at any cost”. It’s the same with all Dem and all Rep establishment, yet so many fools don’t get that.
        This is not a bit of difference between all of the “establishment”, and not a lick of sense between all of them. Someone, here, has bought into it, completely- so responding to the bully of the “internetS” is futile.
        I know, Michael, you wanted me to give the idiot a chance, but (s)he’s proven to not have it in (him)herself to take that chance to hear or learn a thing.
        I’d just rather not exert a bit of energy in that direction.
        Back to the facts of Ron Paul’s slate:
        It’s not “freedom at any cost”. It’s the American Constitution, at ALL costs. If we don’t follow our constitution and don’t force our representatives (haha– yes, they represent OUR wants and desires, don’t they?) in DC to follow it and allow them to continue to ignore our entire system, we will fail. We are well on our way down that path of failure and it is well past time we changed that. The only possible game-changer is Ron Paul.
        Anyone who won’t see that Ron Paul wants to help US take our country back just does not get it and is not interested in “getting it”. For that and due to the level of harassment toward all who’ve responded, here, I’m not going to be bothered with any more of it. The tool is not serious and is simply “here” to irritate everyone else. I won’t play that game.
        Besides, I am fairly sure, based on hundreds of statements, the fool is supporting Obama, or maybe Mitt- and what the heck IS the difference?

        I don’t think it’s a “freedom at any cost” mantra. —> Then you’re going to have to tell RP a better way of describing it, because what he’s saying now isn’t cutting it. LOL

        Most of us just don’t see how bombing innocent women and children in foreign lands makes us any friends. —> You have absolutely NO IDEA how extremely careful we are about being very confident collateral damage is minimized. Our terms of engagement put us at risk and have resulted in deaths and severe injuries. It doesn’t help the terrorists use women and children as human shields. If we wanted to indiscriminately bomb Iraq or Afghanistan, the wars would have been over LONG ago.

        Sure, we’re kooks, I’ll admit it. —> And I’ll agree. LOL

      • I offer to help you and you’re going to go back to this?

      • tex2 says:

        Oh, but, that (bombing innocents, murdering people on the other side of the world, warring with or on people who have no desire to injure us) is Obama’s effort of “peace at any cost”. It’s the same with all Dem and all Rep establishment, yet so many fools don’t get that. —> See above. Paulites are hopelessly and permanently ignorant. LOL

        This is not a bit of difference between all of the “establishment”, and not a lick of sense between all of them. Someone, here, has bought into it, completely- so responding to the bully of the “internetS” is futile. —> Yes, there are HUGE differences, they just aren’t so different that they are total wingnut dingbat nimrod RP sycophants. LOl

        I know, Michael, you wanted me to give the idiot a chance, but (s)he’s proven to not have it in (him)herself to take that chance to hear or learn a thing. —> You CAN’T teach me anything, I understand your position and disagree with it. LOL

        I’d just rather not exert a bit of energy in that direction. —> But you just have!!! LOL

        Back to the facts of Ron Paul’s slate:
        It’s not “freedom at any cost”. It’s the American Constitution, at ALL costs. If we don’t follow our constitution and don’t force our representatives (haha– yes, they represent OUR wants and desires, don’t they?) in DC to follow it and allow them to continue to ignore our entire system, we will fail. We are well on our way down that path of failure and it is well past time we changed that. The only possible game-changer is Ron Paul. —> Which part of the Constitution are we not following with the Iraq/Afghanistan wars? That Congress didn’t declare war? Ever hear of the CONGRESS approved War Powers Act? Read much? LOL

        Anyone who won’t see that Ron Paul wants to help US take our country back just does not get it and is not interested in “getting it”. —> Not the way he wants to do it. LOL

        For that and due to the level of harassment toward all who’ve responded, here, I’m not going to be bothered with any more of it. The tool is not serious and is simply “here” to irritate everyone else. I won’t play that game. —> This is a game, it’s called knowledge vs. stupidity. LOL

        Besides, I am fairly sure, based on hundreds of statements, the fool is supporting Obama, or maybe Mitt- and what the heck IS the difference? —> Actually, neither one, but you had actually READ my posts for comprehension, you would know that. LOL

      • tex3 says:

        Wow. tex2 must not have seen the veterans march, but im sure tex2 will have another bogus arguement of why the veterans are wrong about the wars too. I guess OUR own military is wrong too. Are they “paulbots” tex2?

      • tex2 says:

        There’s plenty of people like you I can use. I’m not going to compromise my views for that. You should understand that as an RP supporter, even respect me for it. LOL

      • Nobody asked you to. You can have your views and engage in a healthy debate, but the gleeful name-calling is ridiculous at best. You’re not helping your cause, whatever that may be, and if you think you are, you’re living a delusion. You’re clearly a smart guy, why not be civil? More people would listen to you if you were.

      • “It’s the same with all Dem and all Rep establishment, yet so many fools don’t get that. This is not a bit of difference between all of the “establishment”, and not a lick of sense between all of them.”

        Many of us agree with you on this.

      • tex2 says:

        i love your insults when like “STUPID” “STRAIGHTJACKET” AND MORE —> Good. I’ll keep using them. And more. LOL

        BOY, YOUR CANDIDATE LOSING IS REALLY HURTING YOUR FRAGILE EGO HUH? —> No. Unlike you, my ego has nothing to do with my candidate winning or losing. LOL

        mittens not looking too good even with all the bankster backing and all the establishment media huh? hahaha —> He’s looking a LOT better than RP, but then again, so is Santorum and Gingrich. LOL

        what do you mean “freedom at any cost”; ahhhhh, let me see first we had THE PATRIOT ACT; NOW THE ASSASSINATION OF AMERICANS W/O CHARGE OR TRIAL; —> I don’t agree with all provisions of either law, but I disagree more with RP’s radical stance. However, the Patriot Act must be renewed in less than 4 years, and I would rather kill a traitor with a missile than put our people in extremely risky harm’s way trying to capture or kill him from the ground. LOL

        NDAA – INDEFINITE IMPRISONMENT OF AMERICANS W/O CHARGE OR TRIAL; 30,000 DRONES SPYING ON AMERICANS; SCAMERAS EVERYWHERE; TSA HIGH SCHOOL FLUNKIES STRIP SEARCHING AMERICANS; SUPREME COURT SAYING STRIP SEARCHES OK FOR SIMPLE TRAFFIC VIOLATIONS …
        HOW ABOUT YOU TEX2 ARE THE STUPID STRAIGHJACKET WEARING MORON? NEXT THING U KNOW HE WILL SAY I AM COMMITTING ONLINE BULLYING; WAH, WAH, WAH – GO CRY TO SOMEBODY ELSE TEX2 —> No, I wouldn’t say you are bullying, but you ARE helping make ALL RP sycophant supports look like the kooky nimrods they are! LOL
        THIS IS NO FREEDOM AT ALL —> This is insight for all. LOL

        ONLY RON PAUL IS AGAINST ALL THE ABOVE
        PLEASE VOTE FOR RON PAUL EVERYBODY —> If you support RP, I’m sure you have good answers for these issues:

        Why Ron Paul would NOT be a good president:
        1. He is old, mousey, whiny, grumpy, skinny, etc. Do not underestimate the importance of these factors, as a very large number of voters are not familiar with the issues, and vote for vanity. Sad but true. It does no good to have good ideas when you don’t have the presidential image, and Ron has neither.
        2. He has been in Congress for 2 decades and doesn’t have a single bill to his name. We elected someone president with zero accomplishments in 2008, why would we want to do that again? How can you expect him to be able to lead the country when he can’t lead a single bill to fruition after 20 years?
        3. He even voted against his own bill to audit the Federal Reserve, because he didn’t get every single detail he wanted. He is so stubbornly rigid he simply takes his toys and goes home if he doesn’t get every little detail he wants.
        4. Many of his domestic policies are admirable, but how does he expect to implement them when he will have to work with Congress to get many of them turned into a reality? Will he simply hold his breath until Congress lets him get his way, because he has zero track record of using any other tactic to be successful?
        5. Most of his foreign policies are dangerous. If we pull out of foreign countries, the vacuum WILL be filled by Russia, China, etc. Once you lose your toehold, it is VERY difficult to expand military operations if the need arises. Think about how hard it would have been for the U.S. to fight Hitler if England had fallen. For example, if China decides they don’t want to allow free flow of oil, we would have no recourse, as it takes years, if not decades, to develop independent energy sources. He is simply naive to the point of being a traitor to his own country. Also, we need forward positioned military presence to fight the global war on terror. It isn’t being fought only in Iraq and Afghanistan, there are operations literally around the world preventing future 9/11 type attacks that simply cannot be fought by guarding our own borders, 9/11 should have taught us that. We must therefore disrupt the terrorist cells wherever they are, so they cannot organize, plan, recruit, train, equip, and attack again. To not do this would be suicidal.
        For the above and other reasons, Ron gets the pot smoking and “freedom at any cost” crowd, and that’s all he will ever get. LOL

      • And if you can get someone else to help you, you should do that. I normally get $500 per hour for consulting, so if you want to pay me, cool. If not, go to someone else. Or, be a good guy and stop the constant cut/paste straw man spamming and I’ll help you.

      • tex2 says:

        I learned a LONG time ago to only be civil with people who are civil with me.

      • tex2 says:

        Veterans are free to have their own opinions, even stupid ones, like supporting RP. LOL

        If you think this march means most veterans support RP, you’re sadly mistaken, just like you are about a variety of other issues RP supports. LOL

        You must have missed (or ignored) my previous post: http://www.businessweek.com/news/2012-01-20/republicans-who-didn-t-serve-in-military-draw-veteran-support.html LOL

      • tex3 says:

        well tex2, you have your opinion, and even tho it is not shared by many here, you are entitled to it. However, you only discredit yourself with some of the more childish responses you have given here.
        As mere humans, when we as individuals, hold strong opinions, we often fail to understand the ability of another to hold conflicting opinions. We can however, keep the conversation civil. I accept that you dont care for Paul, thats fine with me, so why cant you accept that people here want Paul to be our president?
        I dont see you changing any minds here.

        (tip: try to use different copy and paste) LOL

      • tex2 says:

        I’m sure I can find someone else. I plan to pay based on the results, not a per hourly rate. LOL

        As mere humans, when we as individuals, hold strong opinions, we often fail to understand the ability of another to hold conflicting opinions. —> That’s because you refuse to consider the facts. LOL

        We can however, keep the conversation civil. —> I doubt it, it’s not just you. LOL

        I accept that you dont care for Paul, thats fine with me, so why cant you accept that people here want Paul to be our president? —> I accept it, and I criticize it. LOL

        I dont see you changing any minds here. —> Perhaps not of those who post, but most people don’t post, they just read. LOL

        I doubt you have convinced anyone of anything other than tex3 is an IDIOT and RP is bad news. LOL

      • tex3 says:

        i like That Paul wont budge one inch, so do a lot of us. Do you have anything intelligent to say? LOL

      • tex2 says:

        There’s a HUGE difference between betting on a lottery ticket and having a solid plan, with significant factual information, to stop a multi-million person, multi-10s of billions of dollars, multi-decade scam. But if you don’t know the difference, you’re playing in a much lower league. LOL

      • tex2 says:

        i like That Paul wont budge one inch, so do a lot of us. Do you have anything intelligent to say? LOL —> Yes, I also like that RP won’t budge one inch, so stay at your 5-10% voting results. LOL

      • If that much money is on the line and you’ve got a slam dunk way to crush Amway, why wouldn’t they just have you whacked?

      • tex3 says:

        Well ive read tex2 reasons why (s)he doesnt support Paul.
        Im going to stick with Paul.

      • tex2 says:

        If that much money is on the line and you’ve got a slam dunk way to crush Amway, why wouldn’t they just have you whacked? —> No comment. LOL

      • tex2 says:

        Stick with Paul? What a surprise! LOL

      • tex3 says:

        No surprise to stick with Paul, just look at the level of intellect, in the only arguement against him: yours. What a joke. I dont think youve helped your cause here, you only have made an a$$ out of yourself here. LOL

      • tex2 says:

        No surprise to stick with Paul, just look at the level of intellect, in the only arguement against him: yours. —> That’s EXACTLY what I was looking at, your low level of intellect. LOL

        What a joke. —> Yes, your low level of intellect is a joke, and not the funny kind. LOL

        I dont think youve helped your cause here, you only have made an a$$ out of yourself here. LOL —> I don’t think you think. LOL

      Sorry, Wendy= this is actually a response to Michael.
      Michael; I noticed you said the idiot should write a book. Problem with that is this: The dummy is (continually) copying and pasting others’ words, including text from others’ books (and word outside of this site). So, how does one write a book when one ONLY plagerizes, and then writes, “LOL”? Would the book be named, “LOL from tx2″? – or what?
      It is not as intelligent as you give it credit for.. It’s ridiculous and in the hundred(s) of “responses”, it has made exactly ZERO points. Would you buy a book from that punk?
      I would not.

      (Thanks, Wendy– couldn’t respond, directly, to Michael in this portion of the thread!)

      • tex2 says:

        Sorry, Wendy= this is actually a response to Michael. —> Yes, Anne doesn’t think I’m going to respond. LOL

        Michael; I noticed you said the idiot should write a book. —> I already had plans to write a book, perhaps a whole series. LOL

        Problem with that is this: The dummy is (continually) copying and pasting others’ words, including text from others’ books (and word outside of this site). —> I also ask questions, most of which have gone unanswered. LOL

        So, how does one write a book when one ONLY plagerizes, and then writes, “LOL”? —> Because it’s untrue. LOL

        Would the book be named, “LOL from tx2″? – or what? –> How about “Anne Beck is the STUPIDEST Person on the Planet?” LOL

        It is not as intelligent as you give it credit for.. It’s ridiculous and in the hundred(s) of “responses”, it has made exactly ZERO points. —> Wrong again, but at least you are consistent for an RP supporter, consistently WRONG. LOL

        Would you buy a book from that punk? —> Probably not, he’s about as stupid as you are. LOL

        I would not. —> I know, see above. LOL

        (Thanks, Wendy– couldn’t respond, directly, to Michael in this portion of the thread!) —> You’re welcome. LOL

  4. I think the gist here is that the Santorum supporters are realizing the meaning behind “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” … but maybe I’m over simplifying it.

    • annebeck58 says:

      Yes, I see that, too. However, the more astute Paul supporter sees that, and then some!
      Brokered convention? Here we come!

    • tex2 says:

      The question is whether the RP supporters will realize that.

      • tex3 says:

        We look forward to it. ; )

      • tex2 says:

        I’ll be the one NOT holding my breath. LOL

      • tex3 says:

        good for you tex2. The thought of a brokered convention makes me LOL at MSM.That will be a surprise for the sheep.
        I guess MSM is failing at sheilding the sheeple, if there is a brokered convention, well i guess tex2 will never admit to being wrong, but it will show it. ha ha ha
        LOL

      • tex2 says:

        The thought of a brokered convention is a very remote thought. LOL

    • One would hope so. I’m sure Anne could write a helpful post for the Daily Paul. (hint… hint).
      :-)

      • annebeck58 says:

        I might, Michael. The one positive thing about posting on the Daily Paul is this: one must pay a fee to post there, whether a column or blog ,or a response, and that does help keep the riff-raff away. It’s why I appreciate the site.
        We also see (and are able to) post a lot of information regarding the lies and scams of party-usuals, long before anyone else has it. It’s why i chose Daily Paul for my first blogs.
        I’ll consider it, Michael, though I’ve been busy with other things, too. Nice to work with my SIL, today; spent the majority of the day working-out some car-troubles and finishing a full tune-up. Tiring, but, satisfying too!

        I’d be happy to post here more often were the foolish imp not about.

      • tex2 says:

        So much for free speech on RP’s site. Sounds like the opposite of what he talks about….just like other politicians! LOL

        But it is a free country, so if that’s how RP wants to raise his money, go for it! LOL

        You should worry much less about the lies, scams, and conspiracies, and much more about RP’s nutty positions. LOL

        Of course you would happier here without me present, ignorance is bliss, and I make you think and doubt yourself. LOL

      • You’re really good at reframing things, dude, You should write a book about that… I know people who would buy it.

        Anyways, it’s not Ron Paul’s site. It’s run by a 3rd party supporter.

      • tex2 says:

        Maybe that will be my second book. LOL

        Who cares whether it’s a 3rd party site owner, the money goes to RP, right?

      • Why do you think that? Or are you just casting aspersions? The money goes to the site owner to keep it running.

      • tex2 says:

        How much money does it take to keep the site going?

      • I don’t run it, so I don’t know what the overhead is. I don’t know how much bandwidth it uses. I don’t know if has a staff of people. These are the known unknowns.

      • annebeck58 says:

        Well, if you look at Daily Paul, you can see he’s using a lot more BW than most of us. I only use the WP free site- so my blog has a lot less on it. I’m also the only writer, on my blog.
        I do like the DailyPaul because there’s SO MUCH to read. There is more honesty and more truth in regard to what the US feels about Paul and the media’s doings, the terrible actions perpetrated by both the MSM and the government. I do know that the man who runs DP does this as a full-time JOB. And, the fee is minimal enough to allow just about anyone to join, but enough to (as I said earlier) keep away the riff-raff and the TROLLS.
        If they want to pay to troll elsewhere, that’s their option. I know if these same tools try to mess with Ron Paul or his supporters, on the DP, with no basis in fact, and as has happened here (just disgusting and disappointing that Doug would allow it), same tools are booted- no question.
        That is not to say people are not entitled to post their opinions (even against Paul) on DP, just that the fee prevents a lot of it, and the editiing is swift. I appreciate THAT.
        I don’t know of one person who’s complained about not being allowed to post there, but all conversations are CIVIL, which we are not seeing here. This is why I refuse to acknowledge certain folk. It’s not worth my time or my thoughts. Trolls only hang about to be jerks… nothing more. Who needs that?

      • tex2 says:

        I don’t run it, so I don’t know what the overhead is. —> Then you therefore don’t know how much goes back to RP. LOL

        I don’t know how much bandwidth it uses. I don’t know if has a staff of people. These are the known unknowns. —> See above. LOL

      • tex2 says:

        RP only “honesty and truth.” LOL

        I’ve put plenty of facts in front of you RP sycophants, with hardly any meaningful retorts. LOL

        Of course nobody complains about not being able to post on the RP site, their complaint is immediately “edited.” LOL

        Why do you seem angry in your posts? Its just political debate.
        Remember, you come to this blog, where Paul is supported. So what is your point?

        You sound kind of young, and I dont think you have any influence on readers here. Obviously, you are under the impression that you do, so why dont you ask some of the other commenters here if they agree?

        Remember, try to sound intelligent, so that you might seem credible. LOL

      • Here are some estimated stats for this site from this past month…

        http://www.quantcast.com/dougwead.wordpress.com

        Approx. 23,732 People — most coming from The Daily Paul. I don’t think you’re winning many hearts and minds, tex2. LOL

        Since most people don’t post, you don’t know that, do you? LOL

        Perhaps they checked out some of the many facts I’ve posted and decided RP isn’t all he’s cracked (cocaine) up to be! LOL

      • tex3 says:

        try looking at the link, silly. your getting ahead of yourself–LOL

      • tex2 says:

        I already did. LOL

    • tex2 says:

      I’m sure she could write a post for the Daily Paul, but I doubt it would be very helpful. She’s already attacked Santorum personally and trying to paper that over would look very slimy and opportunist.

      • tex3 says:

        It didnt say that the Paul camp needs Santorum, its the other way around. I dont think Paul needs Santorum, in fact, I wish he would leave the GOP.

      • tex2 says:

        I know, I said RP needs Santorum more than Santorum needs RP. LOL

        I wish RP would leave the GOP as well. LOL

      • tex3 says:

        Yeah, but thats not what is happening, what you want to happen is not relevant to what is mentioned in the article above. Paul certainly does not need Santorum, LOL

        It doesnt matter what you say here, it wont affect what will happen in August. LOL

    Well, I completely get this and, though I think Santorum is a bit more than kooky, I agree it needs to be done. Yes, Romney is their “fave”; the establishment or mainstay-pick. And the problem with the party elders choosing Romney is this: He cannot win. He will not win against Obama, and don’t we all want Obama out when all’s said and done? I believe winning is the goal of all voters, and all delegates, though I am not sure it’s the goal of Washington D.C.insiders.
    I actually think Romney is the choice because he CANNOT win the national election. It feels like Reagan (second-term) part-deux. Who recalls the Democratic nominee from that year? Was he a winner? Would he have won regardless of whom he ran against in the national election? Nobody, no, and no.

    I will be posting my letter to the Texas GOP, on my blog; It basically points out my desire to work within the party for one reason; to ensure everyone has her or his say and nobody’s vote is suppressed by anyone, for any reason. I see this Santorum supporter as very astute in her assessment of most Paul supporters and delegates. We want truth, honesty, and above all transparency, in this election and in all elections. I feel we have not seen that in a very long time (again, in my opinion, since the first time Reagan ran) and it’s time that those who care about this country take back the party. If it’s the younger and newer members, so be it, but this has to be done.

    The GOP affiliates should accept the younger crowd. It’s how the party stays alive and stays relevant. If the “established” affiliates keep up with this game of pushing-out well reasoned and studied younger voters, they may as well give up their party, now. The joke has been, “Why is the GOP suicidal?” Sadly, I don’t see it as a joke, but am willing to work primarily to help them to see what it will take to keep themselves alive, or, I am willing to help a third party develop and take their place.
    I’d say the ball is in the hands of these people– though probably not for long.

    What the GOP has been working toward is their own demise, and I am glad someone sees it, besides me!

    • tex2 says:

      The difference with the Reagan analogy is Reagan was strong going into his second term, so nobody wanted to lose against him except the third string.

      • annebeck58 says:

        Okay- wow, No “LOL”, eh? NO usual put-down(S)?
        Yes, Reagan was strong going into his second term– but- he was a NEOCON, by then, and he did nothing in the second term that could be considered beneficial for the American people. He was not good for US/USA, and I feel his tenure kicked off many more abuses of power from pretty much every president to come. (Look up the Bushes, Clinton, Obama, if you like- each one has whittled away at our liberty.)
        Still, my point was; the Dems inserted a nominee who would lose against Reagan as, even back then (what I see as the turning-point of the GOP and the DEMS too), and we are looking at the GOP now doing same with Romney. There is no way Romney will win against Obama, and so, it looks like the GOP is willing to accept another defeat. Why else would they slight the only candidate who has bested Obama in so many polls?
        Does the GOP want to win? Or, do they simply want to continue down this awful path? In my opinion, Obama is a terrible president, and many agree with me, but Romney may be same or even worse.
        Romney cannot and will not take Dem or Indy votes away from anyone. Obama will have his “base” back; those who moved in the direction of Paul, ***without conviction, will vote Obama. I feel pretty sure this has been the plan from the outset.

        (**regarding this response to you; you now see, when you are not just terrible to me, I will reply to your posts. I may not agree with what you say, but I will happily respond when I am not being degraded and “laughed at”. Okay?)

        Yes, Reagan was strong going into his second term– but- he was a NEOCON, by then, and he did nothing in the second term that could be considered beneficial for the American people. —> The point was Reagan, unlike Barry, entered his second term in a strong position, not his particular politics. As far as his second term, from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ronald_Reagan Second term, 1985–1989
        Reagan was sworn in as president for the second time on January 20, 1985, in a private ceremony at the White House. Because January 20 fell on a Sunday, a public celebration was not held but took place in the Capitol Rotunda the following day. January 21 was one of the coldest days on record in Washington, D.C.; due to poor weather, inaugural celebrations were held inside the Capitol. In the coming weeks he shook up his staff somewhat, moving White House Chief of Staff James Baker to Secretary of the Treasury and naming Treasury Secretary Donald Regan, a former Merrill Lynch officer, Chief of Staff.[198][198]

        Ronald Reagan is sworn in for a second term as president in the Capitol Rotunda
        In 1985, Reagan visited a German military cemetery in Bitburg to lay a wreath with West German Chancellor Helmut Kohl. It was determined that the cemetery held the graves of forty-nine members of the Waffen-SS. Reagan issued a statement that called the Nazi soldiers buried in that cemetery as themselves “victims,” a designation which ignited a stir over whether Reagan had equated the SS men to victims of the Holocaust; Patrick J. Buchanan, Reagan’s Director of Communications, argued that the president did not equate the SS members with the actual Holocaust.[199] Now strongly urged to cancel the visit,[200] the president responded that it would be wrong to back down on a promise he had made to Chancellor Kohl. He ultimately attended the ceremony where two military generals laid a wreath.[201]
        The disintegration of the Space Shuttle Challenger on January 28, 1986 proved a pivotal moment in Reagan’s presidency. All seven astronauts aboard were killed.[202] On the night of the disaster, Reagan delivered a speech, written by Peggy Noonan, in which he said:
        The future doesn’t belong to the fainthearted; it belongs to the brave… We will never forget them, nor the last time we saw them, this morning, as they prepared for their journey and waved goodbye and ‘slipped the surly bonds of Earth’ to ‘touch the face of God.’[203]
        War on Drugs
        Main article: War on Drugs
        Midway into his second term, Reagan declared more militant policies in the War on Drugs. He said that “drugs were menacing our society” and promised to fight for drug-free schools and workplaces, expanded drug treatment, stronger law enforcement and drug interdiction efforts, and greater public awareness.[204][205]
        In 1986, Reagan signed a drug enforcement bill that budgeted $1.7 billion to fund the War on Drugs and specified a mandatory minimum penalty for drug offenses.[206] The bill was criticized for promoting significant racial disparities in the prison population[206] and critics also charged that the policies did little to reduce the availability of drugs on the street, while resulting in a great financial burden for America.[207] Defenders of the effort point to success in reducing rates of adolescent drug use.[208][209] First Lady Nancy Reagan made the War on Drugs her main priority by founding the “Just Say No” drug awareness campaign, which aimed to discourage children and teenagers from engaging in recreational drug use by offering various ways of saying “no”. Mrs. Reagan traveled to 65 cities in 33 states, raising awareness about the dangers of drugs including alcohol.[210]
        Libya bombing
        Main article: 1986 Bombing of Libya
        Relations between Libya and the U.S. under President Reagan were continually contentious, beginning with the Gulf of Sidra incident in 1981; by 1982, Gaddafi was considered by the CIA to be, along with USSR leader Leonid Brezhnev and Cuban leader Fidel Castro,[211] part of a group known as the “unholy trinity”[211] and was also labeled as “our international public enemy number one” by a CIA official.[211] These tensions were later revived in early April 1986, when a bomb exploded in a Berlin discothèque, resulting in the injury of 63 American military personnel and death of one serviceman.[212] Stating that there was “irrefutable proof” that Libya had directed the “terrorist bombing”, Reagan authorized the use of force against the country.[212] In the late evening of April 15, 1986, the U.S. launched a series of air strikes on ground targets in Libya.[212][213] The UK Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher allowed the US Air Force to use Britain’s air bases to launch the attack, on the justification that the UK was supporting America’s right to self-defense under Article 51 of the United Nations Charter.[213] The attack was designed to halt Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi’s “ability to export terrorism”, offering him “incentives and reasons to alter his criminal behavior”.[212] The president addressed the nation from the Oval Office after the attacks had commenced, stating, “When our citizens are attacked or abused anywhere in the world on the direct orders of hostile regimes, we will respond so long as I’m in this office.”[213] As early as 1981, Reagan had referred to Gaddafi as “the mad dog of the Middle East”[214] and considered him to be public enemy number one.[215]
        Immigration
        Reagan signed the Immigration Reform and Control Act in 1986. The act made it illegal to knowingly hire or recruit illegal immigrants, required employers to attest to their employees’ immigration status, and granted amnesty to approximately 3 million illegal immigrants who entered the United States prior to January 1, 1982, and had lived in the country continuously. Critics argue that the employer sanctions were without teeth and failed to stem illegal immigration.[216] Upon signing the act at a ceremony held beside the newly refurbished Statue of Liberty, Reagan said, “The legalization provisions in this act will go far to improve the lives of a class of individuals who now must hide in the shadows, without access to many of the benefits of a free and open society. Very soon many of these men and women will be able to step into the sunlight and, ultimately, if they choose, they may become Americans.”[217] Reagan also said, “The employer sanctions program is the keystone and major element. It will remove the incentive for illegal immigration by eliminating the job opportunities which draw illegal aliens here.”[217]
        Iran-Contra affair
        Main articles: Iran-Contra affair, Reagan administration scandals, and Nicaragua v. United States

        President Reagan receives the Tower Report in the Cabinet Room of the White House, 1987
        In 1986, a scandal shook the administration stemming from the use of proceeds from covert arms sales to Iran to fund the Contras in Nicaragua, which had been specifically outlawed by an act of Congress.[218][219] The Iran-Contra affair became the largest political scandal in the United States during the 1980s.[220] The International Court of Justice, whose jurisdiction to decide the case was disputed,[221] ruled that the U.S. had violated international law in Nicaragua due to its obligations not to intervene in the affairs of other states.[222]
        President Reagan professed ignorance of the plot’s existence. He appointed two Republicans and one Democrat (John Tower, Brent Scowcroft and Edmund Muskie, known as the “Tower Commission”) to investigate the scandal. The commission could not find direct evidence that Reagan had prior knowledge of the program, but criticized him heavily for his disengagement from managing his staff, making the diversion of funds possible.[223] A separate report by Congress concluded that “If the president did not know what his national security advisers were doing, he should have.”[223] Reagan’s popularity declined from 67% to 46% in less than a week, the greatest and quickest decline ever for a president.[224] The scandal resulted in fourteen indictments within Reagan’s staff, and eleven convictions.[225]
        Many Central Americans criticize Reagan for his support of the Contras, calling him an anti-communist zealot, blinded to human rights abuses, while others say he “saved Central America”.[226] Daniel Ortega, Sandinistan and current president of Nicaragua, said that he hoped God would forgive Reagan for his “dirty war against Nicaragua”.[226] In 1986 the USA was found guilty by the International Court of Justice (World Court) of war crimes against Nicaragua.[227]
        End of the Cold War
        See also: Cold War (1985–1991)

        Ronald Reagan speaks at the Berlin Wall’s Brandenburg Gate, challenging Gorbachev to “tear down this wall!”
        By the early 1980s, many people in the US perceived that the USSR military capabilities were gaining on that of the United States. Previously, the U.S. had relied on the qualitative superiority of its weapons to essentially frighten the Soviets, but the gap had been narrowed.[228] Although the Soviet Union did not accelerate military spending after President Reagan’s military buildup,[229] their large military expenses, in combination with collectivized agriculture and inefficient planned manufacturing, were a heavy burden for the Soviet economy.[230] At the same time, Saudi Arabia increased oil production,[231] which resulted in a drop of oil prices in 1985 to one-third of the previous level; oil was the main source of Soviet export revenues.[230] These factors gradually brought the Soviet economy to a stagnant state during Gorbachev’s tenure.[230]
        Reagan recognized the change in the direction of the Soviet leadership with Mikhail Gorbachev, and shifted to diplomacy, with a view to encourage the Soviet leader to pursue substantial arms agreements.[232] Reagan’s personal mission was to achieve “a world free of nuclear weapons,” which he regarded as “totally irrational, totally inhumane, good for nothing but killing, possibly destructive of life on earth and civilization.”[233][234][235] He was able to start discussions on nuclear disarmament with General Secretary Gorbachev.[235] Gorbachev and Reagan held four summit conferences between 1985 and 1988: the first in Geneva, Switzerland, the second in Reykjavík, Iceland, the third in Washington, D.C., and the fourth in Moscow.[236] Reagan believed that if he could persuade the Soviets to allow for more democracy and free speech, this would lead to reform and the end of Communism.[237]
        Speaking at the Berlin Wall on June 12, 1987, Reagan challenged Gorbachev to go further, saying:
        “ “General Secretary Gorbachev, if you seek peace, if you seek prosperity for the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, if you seek liberalization, come here to this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!” ”

        Gorbachev and Reagan sign the INF Treaty at the White House in 1987
        Prior to Gorbachev visiting Washington, D.C., for the third summit in 1987, the Soviet leader announced his intention to pursue significant arms agreements.[238] The timing of the announcement led Western diplomats to contend that Gorbachev was offering major concessions to the U.S. on the levels of conventional forces, nuclear weapons, and policy in Eastern Europe.[238] He and Reagan signed the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty at the White House, which eliminated an entire class of nuclear weapons.[239] The two leaders laid the framework for the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, or START I; Reagan insisted that the name of the treaty be changed from Strategic Arms Limitation Talks to Strategic Arms Reduction Talks.[234]
        When Reagan visited Moscow for the fourth summit in 1988, he was viewed as a celebrity by the Soviets. A journalist asked the president if he still considered the Soviet Union the evil empire. “No,” he replied, “I was talking about another time, another era.”[240] At Gorbachev’s request, Reagan gave a speech on free markets at the Moscow State University.[241] In his autobiography, An American Life, Reagan expressed his optimism about the new direction that they charted and his warm feelings for Gorbachev.[242] In November 1989, the Berlin Wall was torn down, the Cold War was officially declared over at a Malta Summit on December 3, 1989[243] and two years later, the Soviet Union collapsed.

        How much more powerfully STUPID can you be? LOL

        He was not good for US/USA, and I feel his tenure kicked off many more abuses of power from pretty much every president to come. (Look up the Bushes, Clinton, Obama, if you like- each one has whittled away at our liberty.) —> You “feel” he abused power, and you can’t name a single one? LOL

LOL

        There is no way Romney will win against Obama, and so, it looks like the GOP is willing to accept another defeat. –> Of course he can beat an incompetent, weak, socialist who has screwed up everything’s he’s touched! LOL

        Why else would they slight the only candidate who has bested Obama in so many polls? —> This is false, I’ve posted references before, try reading them for a change. LOL

        Does the GOP want to win? —> Of course we do, except the drugged out Paulites. LOL

        Or, do they simply want to continue down this awful path? —> No, except the drugged out Paulites. LOL

      TO Michael-
      You see, I did respond to the ONE (Sole, Only) half-way respectful comment of that half-witt, text-ewww. And, it “resplied” with it’s usual ridiculous and nasty non-responses.

      Of course it did not comprehend what i said about Reagan (whom I did vote for in 1980, partly based on the stumping for Reagan by Ron Paul). Reagan appeared to be going into this for the RIGHT reasons, which is why Paul supported him. However, once in for about a year, Reagan completely turned his back on the people of this country- this is when my disenhantment began in regard to the GOP.

      And, as Reagan got only worse from there, in his second term, with “Star Wars”; when he went forward in creating enemies of the Russians, by destroying the USSR, etc.., I lost all faith in Republicans. I could not understand why I was even considering voting REP, ever.. because the NEO-CONS had taken over the party. It’s worse, today and since (esp) the Bushes, the party is completely unrecognizable from what they are supposed to be.

      However, since Ron Paul has come to the fore (especially this election season), i again have faith that the party can find their way back,, and I think we are a good part of what will change their minds and hearts.
      Anyone who responds with ridiculous and inanely MANIACAL “LOL’s”, along with cut-and-past trash from OTHER SITES, that has zero to do with the words I (as well as all others) have proffered, simply needs to be ignored.
      This especially includes trolls such as, “text-ewww”/
      I hope you now see, Michael, why I refuse to be bothered ever again with idiots and, especially, this troll. Anyone who feels (s)he must have the “last word”, when the words it uses is not its’ own, does not deserve my time or attention. it’s like dealing with toddlers.. one cannot pay their tantrums any mind, unless same would like for said tantrums to continue. Think of this little idiot as a 3-yr-old, attempting to “test you”, and ignore it. Or, feeding the troll WILL keep it here.. and, who wants that?

        Anyone who responds from the name Anne Beck is stupid. LOL

        I hope you see, Michael, Anne is actually writing to me, PRETENDING to be writing to you, because she knows I have exposed her stupidity. LOL

        Here’s some issues she simply can’t handle:

        Why Ron Paul would NOT be a good president:
        1. He is old, mousey, whiny, grumpy, skinny, etc. Do not underestimate the importance of these factors, as a very large number of voters are not familiar with the issues, and vote for vanity. Sad but true. It does no good to have good ideas when you don’t have the presidential image, and Ron has neither.
        2. He has been in Congress for 2 decades and doesn’t have a single bill to his name. We elected someone president with zero accomplishments in 2008, why would we want to do that again? How can you expect him to be able to lead the country when he can’t lead a single bill to fruition after 20 years?
        3. He even voted against his own bill to audit the Federal Reserve, because he didn’t get every single detail he wanted. He is so stubbornly rigid he simply takes his toys and goes home if he doesn’t get every little detail he wants.
        4. Many of his domestic policies are admirable, but how does he expect to implement them when he will have to work with Congress to get many of them turned into a reality? Will he simply hold his breath until Congress lets him get his way, because he has zero track record of using any other tactic to be successful?
        5. Most of his foreign policies are dangerous. If we pull out of foreign countries, the vacuum WILL be filled by Russia, China, etc. Once you lose your toehold, it is VERY difficult to expand military operations if the need arises. Think about how hard it would have been for the U.S. to fight Hitler if England had fallen. For example, if China decides they don’t want to allow free flow of oil, we would have no recourse, as it takes years, if not decades, to develop independent energy sources. He is simply naive to the point of being a traitor to his own country. Also, we need forward positioned military presence to fight the global war on terror. It isn’t being fought only in Iraq and Afghanistan, there are operations literally around the world preventing future 9/11 type attacks that simply cannot be fought by guarding our own borders, 9/11 should have taught us that. We must therefore disrupt the terrorist cells wherever they are, so they cannot organize, plan, recruit, train, equip, and attack again. To not do this would be suicidal.
        For the above and other reasons, Ron gets the pot smoking and “freedom at any cost” crowd, and that’s all he will ever get. LOL

    Ha ha, desperate Santorum! How many debates did we watch Santorum’s incredulous mocking expressions and then the vitriolic attacks launched on Dr. Paul after he expressed his foreign policy views and the Christian principle, “The Golden Rule”? Santorum, frothing at the mouth in anticipation of more war? Santorum, who see’s enemies and fears danger on every continent? Santorum, who has nothing but hatred for gays? Santorum, who believes sex is for procreation only and women shouldn’t use birth control?

    Nooooooooooo! No, to Santorum In any capacity! Noooooooooooo to any political alliance!

    Santorum, a man full of hate and fear is the POLAR OPPOSITE of Ron Paul not only in foreign policy and world military aggression but in adherence to the Constitution, civil rights, small government, his voting record and in CHARACTER, namely his failure to live up to the teachings of his Messiah Jesus Christ! After all, Santorum claims to be a Christian, but I would never know if he didn’t announce it endlessly! Deeds speak louder than words, Ron Paul doesn’t talk about his faith, he lives it, his policies are rooted in the Constitution and the teachings of Christ. Christ, who taught that the second most important commandment is to Love Your Neighbor As Yourself!

    Ron Paul already told the world what he thinks of Santorum, he is a FRAUD and Ron Paul never compromises his principles and neither do I! That’s exactly how we got where we are now!

    After this plea for an alliance with Ron Pauls’ supporters, Santorum’s supporters should clearly see how much a fraud their candidate is, surely Santorum must know and be behind this bid! It’s time for Santorum and Gingrich to quit and support Ron Paul, The ONLY Authentic Conservative, Constitutionalist and Christian Republican Candidate!

      He’s not nearly as desperate as Ron Paul, who is dead last! LOL

      Hatred for gays? Where’s your proof? LOL

      No birth control? NOW who has been listening to the MSM? LOL

      Yes, you got to 10% of the vote, made of of mostly potheads and “freedom at any cost” nimrods. LOL

      • Pat Disney says:

        One of the things I will talk about that no president has talked about before is the dangers of contraception in this country, the whole sexual libertine idea. Many in the Christian faith have said, ‘Well, that’s okay. Contraception’s okay.’ It’s not okay because it’s a license to do things in the sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be.
        [Sexual relationships] are supposed to be within marriage, they are supposed to be for purposes that are, yes, conjugal and unitive but also procreative. That’s the perfect way that a sexual union should happen. We take any part of that out, we diminish the act. And if you can take one part out that’s not for purposes of procreation, that’s not one of the reasons, then you diminish this very special bond between men and women, so why can’t you take other parts of that out? And all of a sudden, it becomes deconstructed to the point where it’s simply pleasure. And that’s certainly a part of it, and it’s an important part of it, don’t get me wrong, but there’s a lot of things we do for pleasure, and this is special, and it needs to be seen as special. -Rick Santorum. then on Feb. 12 “Meet the Press” Santorum: Well, I — what I’ve talked about it with respect is my Catholic faith, which, you know, I, I agree with the Catholic Church on the issue of contraception. But as you know, I mean, I — that’s, that’s a different position than I have with respect to public policy. You know, public policy, women should have access to contraception. I have no problem with that at all. The question is whether some religious organization should be forced to pay for something that they believe is a moral wrong, and the issue is — the answer to that is no. And under the Obama administration policy, they are continuing to be forced to do so. Flip flop much? Rick Santorum as president can do the same thing Obama did, hand picking supreme court justices for their views on abortion, contraception, homosexuality, et al. now, here is the real issue, when it comes to presidential power, all presidents are bound by the laws of the country. these being the bill of rights and the constitution. Bill of Rights
        Amendment I
        Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; . – (this includes the right to have no religion, this statement is designed to strip the leadership from the power to form a theocracy.) (you know like the extremist over in the middle east, the really dangerous people we have been attacking and bombing since the 1950’s) (the people with all the easy access oil reserves) ( P.S. LOL is not punctuation, it should only follow witty statements, and should be used sparingly. (unless of course you feel you really need it for “blogging”.)

      • Why would they walk right in and blow us up? Hell’s teeth, man., they can afford private jets now with all the money they’re making from the opium poppies our troops are helping them grow. It’s too bad they’re filthy rich now due to the high covert profits they rake in as a result of drugs being illegal here. But we have to keep them illegal, otherwise you would have no choice but to become a junkie. Ron Paul is simply a gateway drug to Freedom: FREEDOM IS SLAVERY, WAR IS PEACE, and IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.

      • I’ve seen the video a couple of times, it’s just Liberal spin. The Taliban burned the opium crops themselves in 2000. Prior to the tragic events of September 11, 2001, Afghanistan was hardly even a world player in growing poppy — now it’s increased its share of global opium production to more than 92%.

        However, according to the United Nations Drug Control Program (UNDCP), opium cultivation increased by 657 percent in 2002 after the US military invaded the country under the direction of then-President George W. Bush

        How does it get out of the country? We must be helping them do that too… that explains all the CIA drug planes that have crashed. Of course we’d never put the junk on the streets, we’re too moral for that.

        Sounds like blowing huge gaping holes in Ron Paul’s positions are the typical Neo-Con’s delusion of Grandeur. Neo-Cons defend the indefensible Status Quo which has been a huge influence in bankrupting the Nation. Neo-Cons defend their Movement which has hijacked the Morality of the Country with a snide smile on the face. Either way, the decent Freedom-Loving people know that “more-of-the-same” will lead to even more decay whereby the Country will have a difficult time surviving. Even Obama is a Neo-Con!

      • DT says:

        You’re more of a moron than you make yourself out to be on this Blog, LOL. Surely you don’t think that a Neo-Conservative is the same as a Constitutional Conservative just because “Conservative” is in the name. Do you? That’s like saying that the Democratic Party is for Democracy – or the Republican Party is for a Republic. LOL. We’ve all seen what both of these Parties do to make “null and void” the Constitution of the United States and to Govern AGAINST the Will of the People. Unless, of course, you’re a Neo-Con, LOL.

        Your views against Ron Paul automatically put you into the category of a Neo-Con by default. Why? Because you’re Blind. You REALLY believe there’s a difference between the 2 Parties. LOL. When you support either of Establishment Party’s views, you support “Empire America”. I guess you don’t really LISTEN to Ron Paul. Do you? And you probably don’t Pay Attention to what is going on around the World. You just like to get-your-rocks-off and ATTACK Ron Paul. LOL Why? Because he doesn’t “FIT” into your Neo-Con Empire America mold.

        You ATTACK him for “not getting anything done” while serving in Congress. LOL Only a “Blind” Neo-Con “deliberately” won’t give him credit for voting AGAINST every Bill that Raised Taxes while the “Establishments” SPENT us into $16 TRILLION in Debt (and growing). It’s the “Neo-Con” Way. Turn a “Blind-Eye” to Borrowing Money – Unbalanced Budgets – Deficit Spending – just as long as the Neo-Cons continue to build “Empire America”. It’s “Rah Rah” for the Republicans and the Democrats – even though the ship is sinking. It’s like the passengers of the Titanic saying to one another as they’re going down in the Atlantic – “Gee. Didn’t the Band sound Great”?

      • tex2 says:

        RP is only useful if he can get other conservatives to work together with him. He failed. He’s a failure. His 3 presidential campaigns were a failure. You support a failure. You are a failure. LOL

        Thus, the only conclusion that can be reached is that Constitutional “Conservatism” has been “hijacked” by the Neo-Conservative Movement – of which YOU are a Member.

      • tex2 says:

        The only conclusion that can be reached is that Ron Paul is a failed politician. He thought there was a clause in the Constitution that if he crossed his arms, legs, and eyes for 20 years, rather than building a coalition, he could get his way. That’s NOT how the Constitution was designed to work, and it doesn’t work that way. LOL

      Now, his delegates can saunter on over to the PAUL camp! I say, YES!! IF GOP wants a win (and they do; believe you, me) they will finally support Ron Paul. Otherwise, they are done.

        It was not getting enough votes and not enough money that got Santorum, not your slimy racist accusations. LOL

        I’m happy he’s gone from the perspective it SLAMS the nomination door in RP’s face, because he didn’t “get” the fact he wasn’t going to win, anyway. LOL

        Santorum’s delegates HATE Ron Paul, because RP beat up Santorum too much in the debates, and don’t forget Santorum’s rolling eyeballs during the debates whenever RP opened his mouth. Santorum has always said he would support the winner, not the whiner. You burned the bridges, as usual. LOL

        what i find funny: not only did John McCain lose to Obama,, but Romney lost to John McCain before that. but the GOP in their wisdom has decided that two time loser Romney should be the nominee. is anyone else thinking we are being set up for a second Obama term? by the GOP and media. meanwhile we have GOP couch potato’s who bathe in MSM rhetoric 24/7. those fools that believe the abortion/gays/birth control issues are the deal breakers. as it stands 3 of the 4 GOP candidates will continue the wars, continue the spending and continue the violations of constitutional rights. driving forward with the police state we now live in, only expanding it. and tex2, in your statement about Paul: Ron Paul doesn’t do that, he just sits there with his arms, legs, and eyes crossed, holding his breath. I doubt RP is even capable of reaching out. LOL…- this involves following constitutional law. meaning if it violates constitutional law , he will not vote in favor. (notice the NDAA, affordable healthcare act, Sopa, PIPA, patriot act, Ron Paul voted nay on all these bills,, because they violate the constitutional rights of Americans) so, in essence, if your senators/congressmen voted for these acts? they should be impeached and charged with treason. ::oath of office.

        are serious when you typed – internet ‘S’ —> Yes, it was a nod to W. LOL

        it will be a sad day at the convention for you especially when you thought you were on the wagon with the winner
        mitt romney will lose at the convention —> We’ll see. I’ll be sure to rub it in when RP doesn’t win, but I doubt you’ll respond. LOL

        the DNC already has vids on mittens ready to go if he were to win
        check it out: google ‘mitt v mitt’ ; establishment media is hush hush about it so they can unleash it on mittens —> Those ads have already been on TV, but can you imagine the nutjob videos Barry would use against RP? LOL I thought Romney wasn’t going to win at the convention, but now he does? LOL

        but as i said, mittens can’t win the south and this means he can’t win the general; the convention knows this and mittens will fall when the others stand up against the establishment at the convention
        look that up in wiki; —> Romney can win the south, particularly if he picks a good running mate, which does NOT include RP. LOL

        you won’t find it wise one on the “internetS” hahahaha —> Thanks for the entertainment. IDIOT. LOL

        again, johnny boy did not have the delegate process locked up; at the convention many things take place; johnny boy may have by what the media lies to the public, just as they are doing today; have you how the media awards delegates to mittens after an election and never subtracts the delegates after he loses delegates during the delegate process? this is what i mean; mittens is losing delegates as i type; yet, the media and fools like you keep saying mittens has a given number of delegates; now, if you believe this convention it will be locked by one candidate, then you need to stop typing and have fun reading your ignorant wiki for endless hours and not learning one damn thing; note: 2008 convention, ppl were surprised that RP got more delegates than polls showed; hmmmm, how did that happen? i guess those so called dumb RP supporters just got lucky; SEE YOU IN TAMPA BUDDY; WE RP SUPPORTERS WILL BE THERE STRONG

        USS Texas (CGN-39) She served during Operation Desert Storm as the ship for the anti-air warfare commander of the Nimitz Battle Group. Additionally, she served as a mother-ship for minesweeping operations off the coast of Kuwait, providing valuable logistic support for several minesweepers. She returned to San Francisco in August of that year. In April 1992, meanwhile, I was serving with the 1St. Infantry Div. 2nd bn 34th AR. maybe our views of what went on at that time were different, that’s understandable, seeing as you were almost shot at and never really saw any of the enemy. while was killing them and taking prisoners. you wouldn’t know much about cluster bombs or atom mines. and you sure as hell wouldn’t know what oil well fires smell like after you have sat in them for 2 weeks, until everything you own has been saturated with oil and sand. you speak of history as if you lived it. when in actuality you are nothing more than a troll. my Div. never liberated a single Kuwaiti, what we did when we got to Kuwait was set up a perimeter around the burning oil wells, and guarded them until the blowout crews from the U.S. showed up. as for collateral damage and war crimes? look up fallujah iraq. oh yeah, i forgot your not on a fishing trip. you will continue to believe what your told. but i must ask one question? do you know anything about depleted uranium? and if you do? explain to me why we still use it ? as almost every other nation in the world has banned it use as a WMD. yet, while everyone else is banning it, our gov. has been incorporating it in large bombs, not used as a aid to penetration, what is the reasoning for this? (btw, did you know Bush Sr. has warrants for war crimes? they are for the use of depleted uranium.)

      • tex2 says:

        I was on the ship in the Persian Gulf, while Iraq and Iran were at war, in the early 1980s. Just because I was smart enough not to be a ground pounder, that shouldn’t be held against me. LOL

        Just because you were a ground pounder doesn’t make you automatically right. LOL

        If you were killing the enemy and taking prisoners and guarding the oil fields, you were involved in liberating Kuwaitis.

        If you weren’t in Fallujah, you don’t have any more first hand knowledge than I do. LOL

        I know about depleted uranium. We use it because it works, mainly for its penetration capability and pyrophoric properties.

        According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Depleted_uranium, “most countries” consists of only 2: The military power houses of Belgium and Costa Rica. LOL

        They better hurry with Bush, he’ll be dead soon. LOL

  9. GoodSamaritan says:

    A scenario I would have never imagined until reading this article – President Paul and Vice President Santorum. My mind just fell off the cerebral cliff and the cognitive dissonance I’m experiencing on the way down will surely end in a grand mal seizure.

    Nevertheless, I can see a Paul/Santorum ticket absolutely crushing both Romney and then Obama. The ultimate non-Romney ticket that a majority of the country can unite behind? Hmm…

    I’m reminded of the differences between President Adams and his VP, Jefferson. In that case, though, Adams wanted a strong central government and Jefferson preferred more power in the states.

    • tex2 says:

      Ever hear the expression of oil and water? Barry would have a field day with that combination. LOL

      Although I do like this statement from wiki: “Jefferson would leverage his position as vice-president to attack President Adams’ policies, and this would help him reach the White House in the following election.” LOL

    • annebeck58 says:

      Here’s the thing; and, I also went there– Paul.Santorum>> but thought much better of it. NO WAY would Paul take Santorum as his running-mate. Why would he?
      But, yes; it COULD Crush ROmNot… of course, almost anyone will crush mittems, especially in the South (and I include Texas in South). I do not see Santorum bringing a lot of votes to Paul, But, who knows? I’d have to hear it straight from Ron Paul’s mouth, though, in order to believe it would or could happen.

      • tex2 says:

        Here’s the thing; you’re an IDIOT. LOL

        Ron Paul wouldn’t take Santorum as his running mate because he doesn’t have a remote chance of being nominated. LOL

        Santorum would NEVER join RP. LOL

  10. Why do you end all of your statements with “LOL”…?

    • tex2 says:

      Dave, how have you been? LOL

      I don’t end all of my statements with “LOL,” just most of them. LOL

      The reason I end most of them with “LOL” is because I am literally LAUGHING OUT LOUD as I respond to idiotic posts. LOL

    • RON PAUL LOSES, GOP LOSES says:

      funny, you must WORK FULL TIME promoting YOUR CANDIDATE; THIS IS PROBABLY THE SECOND TIME I HAVE BEEN HERE; AND THE FIRST TIME REPLYING
      ODD, the article says
      1) RON PAUL NEVER WON A PRIMARY/CAUCUS
      WRONG – RON PAUL WON THE U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS
      2) THERE IS NO MEDIA BIAS AGAINST RON PAUL
      WRONG – VISIT http://WWW.WHATABOUTRON.COM
      LOOK, AMERICANS KNOW IT IS HAPPENING; THIS ARTICLE IS FOOLISHLY TRYING TO LIE TO AMERICANS; AND AMERICANS SEE THAT LIE
      3) THERE ARE NO CALLS FOR RON PAUL TO DROP OUT? REALLY? THEN YOU MUST VISIT http://WWW.DAILYPAUL.COM AND MORE; THE MEDIA ALWAYS ASKS RON PAUL IF HE WILL DROP OUT
      4) RON PAUL REJECTED IN SOME STATES? HOW IS GETTING MORE VOTES THAN 2008 REJECTED? APPEARS TO ME AND ALL WATCHING THAT MITT ROMNEY IS HAVING A BIT OF A PROBLEM GETTING SUPPORT IN THE SOUTH; HE LOST PERCENTAGE WISE IN MAINE AND NEVADA FROM 2008 PLUS SOME OTHERS; AND IT APPEARS MITT ROMNEY IS LOSING DELEGATES IN THOSE CAUCUS STATES

      AS FOR THE REST OF THE ARTICLE, IT IS JUST OPINIONS THAT ARE NOT GETTING THEIR CANDIDATE ELECTED
      IT’S SOLE PURPOSE IS TO ATTACK RON PAUL WITH LIES AS I HAVE SHOWN ABOVE
      REMINDER: THOSE ACTIVE SO CALLED “YELLING” RON PAUL FANS DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE; AND THE CONVENTION WILL CLEARLY SHOW THIS WHEN MITT ROMNEY SUPPORTERS CAVE; BUT, WHO WILL THEY CAVE FOR? RICK SANTORUM OR RON PAUL? I THINK YOU KNOW IT WILL BE RON PAUL
      1) RON PAUL SUPPORTERS ARE THE FUTURE OF THE GOP – YOUNG, INDEPENDENTS, EVEN SOME DEMS, AND MORE
      2) RON PAUL IN POLLS HAS SHOWN HE CAN BEAT OBAMA; RICKYYYY SANTORUM OR NEWT GINGRICH CANNOT

      YOU NEED ANY MORE ENLIGHTENING FULL TIME WORKER ON THE BLOGS? HEHE

      i must have missed it, it seems to be the media defending itself against the criticism for showing only “establishment chosen” candidates. Not impressive.

  11. Jack Blood says:

    Not only will I be Un-Supportive of this political scheme – but I would consider moving to Canada if Mr Santorum got anywhere near the WH. Dr Paul needs to move to a 3rd party NOW – get in the general debates (ala Ross Perot) and teach the GOP a lesson they will never forget! – And for any of you republicken’s out there that see this as a betrayal – so be it. We are NEVER going to “take over” the GOP (key word here is OLD) If the Paul campaign truly believes in Liberty, they will quit trying to arrange back room deals with those who would take that very liberty from we the people! … And create something that will lobby to “Decentralize and REPEAL” draconian laws, policy, and EO’s. – Obama will win most likely – but we are NOT giving up out here! With or Without the Pauls.

    • tex2 says:

      Do you need any help paying for your one-way ticket? LOL

      Where is he going to go? Gary Johnson already has the Libertarian Party pretty much sewed up. LOL

      He has to have more than 15% in the polls to get into the debates, he would be lucky to get half of that! LOL

      I don’t see it as betrayal, I see it as a non-Republican who SHOULD go to another party. LOL

      Sounds like the Tea Party, except they have rejected RP mainly because of his nutty foreign policy ideas. LOL

        This is exactly what I wanted to say, but I refused to be bothered by the troll. So, thank YOU!
        I just refuse to say much to the foolish tools, ever; it’s usually one response, one or two “SHUT UP”.s, and then I am done, and will say nothing further.
        Each and every one of your points would be what we all know. Of course, by we all, I am referring to the intelligent people who give a damn about this country. I could never include fake lil tex in that. Nor could i include Santorum or RomNOT, or the Grinch (though having him in is great for comic relief!)

      • annebeck58 says:

        Yes, Michael.
        Twiddle DUH_mmmmer’s “responses” are truly asinine. Not worth the read (or reply) because it spouts everything that’s already been called out for the BLATANT LIES they’ve been. Yet the TOOL goes on and on and on and on.. blah blah blah, BORING, too.

        None of her? or his? – (will just use word, IT, to describe whatever it is) postings make ANY Sense. Not one word that I’ve read, and granted; I did not read most of it, is trash. It makes no “holes” in ANYONE’s argument, yet it goes on. WHY??- why would that be?? I’m surely not too stupid to get it’s rationale for being here and being a TOOL of the MSM.
        I realize it’s only to keep us here, preventing us from speaking to more reasoned and intelligent people online, and I won’t play it’s stupid (proven to be completely and absolutely wrong, long ago; prolly when it was hardly a thought to it’s mother) game of “Debate”.
        What an IDIOT> like anyone who supports RON PAUL, because we GET IT, would ever move on over to the side of Smarmy LilRicky Satan, or Scummy RomNOT. Like we’d vote for anyone else, aside from RON PAUL?
        What an IDIOT this unAmerican NON_American TOOL IS. Surely, it’s not a Texan (unless it’s from the STUPID Perry camp).. I won’t deal with it, except to ignore the trash-can idiot..
        I will be elsewhere… It is far too ridiculous for words. And, I will not waste my words, at ALL.

        yes i read at the other sites as well, but the “evil” side of me likes to keep a sheep like tex2 scratching for a “good” comeback. Good comebacks need no namecalling,etc.
        On numerous occasions tex2 has been left “high and dry” with nothing better to say, other than to namecall in order to have any response. A quick review of tex2’s comments here demonstrate that—LOL

        I also enjoy posting my opinions in the comment sections of the MSM garbage tex2 pastes. Those comment sections are full of uninformed sheep. Its fun to shut them down, with the abundance of information available to the internet community.
        Coincidentally, they too like to cling to the usual MSM phrases in their arguement. You can always tell when youve gotten your point across, either as no more replies, or namecalling, and insults, much like little tex2.–LOL

        On a lighter note, i have been enjoying all the articles about the RP supporters getting delegates, much to the chagrine of the out dated “establishment”. Great stuff.

      • annebeck58 says:

        I find it very funny (and almost sad, the stupidity level) that most of the msm following herd have zero clue as to who can be delegates, who are the delegates this time, and what kind of power these (super-voters) delegates wield. They have no comprehension of what’s happening in this race, because the me-me-meeediaaah keeps them controlled, and they completely accept it, still.
        With all that is available online and considering how much time these fools spend online, how can they not grasp, yet, the truth? It almost makes me sad for them. Then it makes me sad for the country, because there are so many idiots in it, even today. I just hope the majority of them will not vote. After the Obama fiasco, I expect many of them will stay home, and the Paul supporters will be there., *national election!

    One thing the “newzz” does not get is this: the “straw polls” and the “beauty contests” really do NOT matter. So if the rallies are not translating into votes, it is because it doesn’t matter. On top of that, many Paul supporters are Independent voters and REFUSE to sign-on with the (disgusting) GOP Neocon Party- But, as long as these rallies translate into DELEGATES, we are fine.
    And, these rallies are translating into delegates, so all is good. Some don’t get that as they don’t and won’t comprehend that it’s not One-man-One-Vote. It’s delegates (SUPER VOTERS) who count. And, that’s all there is to it.. (well, there’s that AND the fact that Santorum cannot win because he could not get on the ballots in too many states. GOOD.)

      Im happy to say that i have seen numerous articles about Paul takeovers of the gop at many precincts. Altho the articles are sometimes referring to it as a “hijacking”, whatever you want to call it, it can only happen with a majority of delegates. Paul supporters now control the Iowa state GOP chair. So no matter what tex2, or any other MSM sheep says, we are looking good for August.
      Has there ever been a presidential candidate in such a perfect position for a third party run? Maybe that would end the GOP/DEM control on our polotics.

      • Let me see if I can guess what Tex2 will say:

        All the articles were written by RP supporters and posted on their own blogs that nobody reads. LOL

        Of course it’s hijacking, what else do you call a cult of rude RP supporters stealing delegates!? LOL

        RP should have dropped out yesterday! The tv says he has no chance! LOL

        If he runs 3rd party, he’ll just hand the election to Obama and go smoke weed with Snoop Dogg. LOL

      • annebeck58 says:

        I believe that’s a valid point– the third party positioning, though I do (kind of) hope he will take the GOP party back to what it used to be, fifty years ago.
        Still, if there is nothing to save, there; no there there, why not bring a third party to the fore via a Ron Paul win? It’s not like it would be impossible and Paul has already proven his campaign has the money and support to afford him a place on the debate-stage. The only thing that has thusfar prevented a 3rd party win, in my opinion, has been the lack of debate-stage time given to all 3rd party runners.
        I am sure the “two parties” would want to prevent this, and it may be a stupid circus while they black-out Ron Paul (still and again), but I think enough people are angry with the other “choices” being forced upon us, that they will vote Paul in the 2012 national election.
        Either he gets the GOP vote, and takes the White-house from there, or he takes it via an Indy vote. Either way, he has the support to win, handily.

        (Tell El Stupido/ La Stupida to stay away from my responses.)

      Yes, only RP sycophants understand how the delegate process works. LOL

      Ron Paul doesn’t matter. LOL

      The rallies translate into a very small number of delegates, so we are fine and all is good. LOL

      I know it’s delegates that count, and it’s easy to count RPs, because there are so few of them. LOL

      And, that’s all there is to it.. (well, there’s that AND the fact that RP cannot win because he is a nutjob. GOOD). LOL

      • tex3 says:

        so tell us where you found “real” delegate totals, because i know many states havent assigned them yet? LOL

      • tex2 says:

        I’ve already stated I spoke with the Texas GOP and they said the delegate totals are estimates, but the estimates have always been close, and they think they are this year as well. LOL

  14. Wendy Jones says:

    Ron Paul’s positive message defining and restoring liberty, personal responsibility, constitutional governing, the proper role of government and sound economic policies are equally as important as his nomination for President. His message has been heard, understood, vetted and is growing exponentially, not only in America, he is known and honored worldwide, either way it’s already a win.

    The older status quo neo-con Republicans were the audience you refer to. Their news is from MSM if at all, they believe the government is basically trustworthy, or some MSM outlet will let them know, they favor moral controls, big government, preemptive wars and they don’t like change. They are very afraid of the “terrorist’s” and gladly sacrifice freedom for security. They are going away by attrition.

    Young educated American voters, our future leaders, have taken to heart Dr. Pauls logic and vision of true conservative principles and support him above all the other statist candidates and they are the future. He has identified the fallacies of the left/right paradigm and they “get it”. He has ignited their interest and passion, they question and investigate status quo thought, talking heads and politicians. They read, think and seek out independent news sources, write articles, blogs, and create internet radio shows. They communicate through social networking sites and get to know the common citizens of the “terrorist” countries. They have learned that they share common human values, goals and activities. and that they don’t hate or fear one another. They are involved in learning the American political process and are actively participating in it in every capacity, another win for Ron Paul.

    Fear, breeds alienation and contempt for others. Why are you so scared? Why do you respond to opinions with attacks rather than a persuasive argument for your views?

    Where is your proof that terrrorist’s are lurking everywhere, waiting to walk in and blow us up? How many are there? Where exactly are they? Are you willing to put your life on the line to stop them? Are you willing to blow up an entire civilian population to kill a few of them? When will we know when it’s safe? How do you know they are not the minority? Is America better off now than before we went to Iraq and Afghanistan? Are we more safe? Are we more prosperous? Are we more free? Where are the WMD’s? Have you ever considered that most civilians in these countries just want to live their lives in peace and don’t support terrorist ideologies? How do you know that the majority of the common people in “terrorist” countries even know about 911?

    Where is your proof that the U.S. government and allies haven’t instigated resentment, anger and hatred by propping up false leaders, occupying, bombing, warring, covert activities, terrorizing and killing innocent citizens, destroying their homes, livelihood and hope for a decent life? Where is your proof that all this is not done to steal their resources, install plutocratic corporations, and reap the riches at their expense and ours? Can you prove preemptive attacks have been or will be good for America and Americans? Shall we police the world against terrorist’s until our country is bankrupt? Will you stand at the front lines when the shooting starts?

    Have you given birth to a child? Are you a doctor have you helped bring a baby into the world? Have you taken a life? Do you have as many years education as Dr. Paul has? Have you served in congress for twelve terms, returning to your job two days a week? Have you served in any capacity? Have you served in the military during times of war? Have you lived as many years as Ron Paul, are you as wise? When have you ever heard Ron Paul say he would observe “The Golden Rule” to the “extreme”? When have you ever heard him say he would NOT DEFEND the U.S.? Why are you afraid of freedom, dialogue, respect, and trade?

    Who do you support for President and why?

      How many are there? —> Are you really this stupid? If we knew how many there were, we would take them out. LOL

      When will we know when it’s safe? —> It will never be “safe.” It never has been, never will be. The question is how much effort we have to put into it to be safe enough. LOL

      How do you know they are not the minority? —> I never said they weren’t the minority. LOL

      Is America better off now than before we went to Iraq and Afghanistan? —> Yes.

      Are we more safe? —> Yes.

      Are we more prosperous? —> Compared to what? LOL

      Are we more free? —> Compared to being dead? Yes.

      Where are the WMD’s? —> Iran is building them, North Korea is building them.

      Have you ever considered that most civilians in these countries just want to live their lives in peace and don’t support terrorist ideologies? —> I already know that. The problem is their leaders. LOL

      How do you know that the majority of the common people in “terrorist” countries even know about 911? —> I’ll bet they do, and their information is probably inaccurate. LOL

      Where is your proof that the U.S. government and allies haven’t instigated resentment, anger and hatred by propping up false leaders, occupying, bombing, warring, covert activities, terrorizing and killing innocent citizens, destroying their homes, livelihood and hope for a decent life? —> We are acting essentially in a similar manner as after WWII, except that the hostilities haven’t ended.

      Where is your proof that all this is not done to steal their resources, install plutocratic corporations, and reap the riches at their expense and ours? —> It’s hard to prove a negative, where is YOUR proof that is what we ARE doing? LOL

      Can you prove preemptive attacks have been or will be good for America and Americans? —> Which preemptive attacks are you talking about? LOL

      Shall we police the world against terrorist’s until our country is bankrupt? —> I don’t recommend that. LOL

      Will you stand at the front lines when the shooting starts? —> I’ve done it before, I would be willing to do it again if necessary. How about YOU? LOL

      Have you given birth to a child? —> I can’t do that, I’m a guy. LOL

      Are you a doctor have you helped bring a baby into the world? —> No, I’m not a doctor. LOL

      Have you taken a life? —> No, but if that becomes necessary, I would.

      Do you have as many years education as Dr. Paul has? —> No. Does being a medical doctor automatically mean he’s more informed on national security matters? LOL

      Have you served in congress for twelve terms, returning to your job two days a week? —> No. Does being in Congress and never passing a law automatically mean he’s more informed on national security matters? LOL

      Have you served in any capacity? —> Yes. I was a naval officer on a nuclear powered surface warship, the USS Texas.

      Have you served in the military during times of war? —> If you count nearly being shot at while in the Persian Gulf, yes.

      Have you lived as many years as Ron Paul, are you as wise? —> No, and no. I am younger and wiser. LOL

      When have you ever heard Ron Paul say he would observe “The Golden Rule” to the “extreme”? —> Indirectly, yes. LOL

      Why are you afraid of freedom, dialogue, respect, and trade? —> I’m not. Why are you afraid of surviving? LOL

      Who do you support for President and why? —> Any Republican except RP, because none of them have nutty foreign policies, and RP against Barry, because I think Barry can do more damage to America in 4 years than Ron can. LOL

  17. Harlowe Thrombey says:

    I agree with you on Romney, but I just don’t see how and why you’d ever support Santorum: a man who has repeatedly voted to jail people who grow marijuana, even for cancer relief! Why is Santorum so cruel on this? He should have a heart-to-heart with both users of medical marijuana, as well as Rev. Pat Robertson, who has studied this issue very carefully.

    Mr. Santorum also supported the Neocon scam that got us involved in Iraq (along with most Republicans and Democrats of course at the time).

    Mr. Santorum also talks about gay politics way too much. His opinions are authoritarian. Ron Paul NEVER talks about gay politics, except when questioned. And when questioned, he says “the government should be out of the marriage business entirely and leave it up to the churches and civil contracts”.

    Mr. Santorum also does not understand the Constitution and he does not understand human self-government. The proof is in his support of laws against sodomy. Many people across America, in the privacy of their bedrooms, commit what is called sodomy, with a consenting partner, usually their wife or husband, but obviously in cases of fornication and homosexuality as well. But IT IS NOT THE GOVERNMENT’S ROLE TO BAN THINGS LIKE THAT. It results in police jailing harmless human beings due to the enforcing of such laws.

    Mr. Santorum is compassionate to the poor, but only a very narrow selection of the poor.

    I hope he widens compassion to include all those people he currently wastestime in inprisoning (the marijuana users and growers) and develops a more intellectual and scientifice, and less emotional and less traditional view on this subject.

    After that is done, he will have the cajones needed to be President of our United States of America.

      @tex2 — after reading your posts.

      Conclusions:

      1) Your constant LOLs display hysteria (the incessant laughter of the weak minded when faced with a subject that confounds them).

      2) A Sciolist — you surface-only ‘knowledge’ forces you to resort to sophism (weak ones that even Protagoras would be ashamed).

      3) An internet Hooligan — insulting others by name-calling (when you are unable to make a syllogism…which is nearly all of the time).

      “Ron Paul has 50 delegates” ?? Hahahaha. Yeah, not exactly the number:

      Everyone that’s not watched and subbed Ben Swann at FOX19 in Cincinnati truly should. I may have more information on certain races (Alaska and more in WA state) to pass on tohim, and am sure Ben will use it for another of his wonderful pieces based on REAL journalism.

      (–now tell the idiot to not bother me.)

      oh my! are you going to call us names? oh no!

        If you want me to, IDIOT. LOL

      • Surfisher says:

        @tex3 — why are you giving further internet ‘life’ by responding to this Court Jester?

        A troll such as the #2 is most likely a 300+lb, 30+ year-old, pimply “teenager” that lives in Mum’s basement. It’s only life consists of non-stop net postings, with short breaks crawling up the stairs to raid mom’s refrigerator.

        Why are you responding to your lesser #2 — you only give it the nourishment it needs to live on the internet. Cut it off — never directly respond to a troll (but once, putting it in its place) — with no-one responding to it’s trolling, it will be reduced to talking to itself (the function of a Court Jester…and that’s all this #2 is).

      • annebeck58 says:

        I completely agree, Surfisher!
        Little idjit’s sole purpose in life is to troll the “internets”, so (s)he can be heard. Problem is when dodo does this — repeatedly and incessantly– we are less likely to pay the words any mind. Why would we? The child does not and will never comprehend that.

        I do like that you called the little chit what it is= #2, though. Spot ON.

        I also know why TEX3 has been going at the twerp and why he chose the name and avatar; it is to prove what a troll little number-2 is., and to respond to the twit’s words, so we don’t HAVE TO. I left the child one response, and I refuse to go there again; it’s a waste of my time and thoughts, so why bother? If TEX3 wants to continue to take-on tex2, I say, fine.
        Someone needs to beam-up li’l Scotty, I suppose…, so let it be TEX3.

        Now I should get ready, ‘cuz the dummy that inhabits the net(s) will now try to “reply to me” with the usual nonsense. It’s all the punk has.

      • tex2 says:

        Yes, I agree. Just let me get the last word in! LOL

      • tex2 says:

        And whatever you do, don’t challenge the facts and logic I present. Facts are troublesome to RP. LOL

      I’m sure Barry will take care of that for you. LOL

    • annebeck58 says:

      Hi, Michael!
      Love this video and will be sharing it.
      RomNOT is so ridiculous, as is little Satan, and the Grinch may as well bow out (though I would say this should be his decision). Then again, Little Satan should ALSO bow out, after his RACIST commentary. How does someone use those terms, “Black people live.. off of. American taxpayer money”?? And, “Obama is.. NIG.. Uh, Uh.., ..blah blah blah”. HOW is that not news and how is that allowable? HOW can anyone vote for any of these tools, but the most racist person I’ve even known to run for anything?? One should never get away with what Ricky-doo-dah-dummy said, and (especially) should NOT be voted in as anyone’s nominee for ANYTHING.
      If li’l satan were to take this, don’t they GET that he’s given Anyone who cares about that stuff (and it’s a huge majority of the US that would never go along with that garbage), has all he needs to TAKE RACIST-SATAN DOWN.

  22. tex2 says:

    RP must have turned Santorum down, since Santorum just dropped out of the race! LOL

  23. KC Ted says:

    I see CNN saying it’s all over now, Romney is the man. What about Rick’s delegates? They are now all unbound. I read an article last night that said a couple states may reallocate delegates (from winner take all to proportional) which would have brought Rick much closer to Mitt (and Paul pick up a few more).

    So, where does CNN think those delegates will go? Do they “assume” they now belong to Mitt? If Paul got Rick’s delegates he would be mighty close to Mitt and that doesn’t count the caucus delegates that won’t be known until June or so. I would love to see reality shove this rhetoric right up their ass*ume

    • tex2 says:

      Most of Rick’s delegates will go to Romney. LOL

      The few delegates Santorum may have picked up would not have brought him “much closer” to Romney, just a little bit closer.

      RP beat up Santorum too much in the debates, and don’t forget Santorum’s rolling eyeballs during the debates whenever RP opened his mouth. Santorum has always said he would support the winner, not the whiner. You burned the bridges, as usual. LOL

    • annebeck58 says:

      Hey, Ted; well here’s what I know- Santorum’s delegates are now ALL unbound, and since Paul came in second in delegate count in many of these areas, would most likely be they WILL go to Paul.
      DO they really think the Bible belt will go with a MORMON? I don’t see it, as Paul IS Christian and holds a lot of the same values as these people. Also, delegates who went with Santorum as a way of creating peace AND ensuring RomNOT would not get them, will most likely go with Paul. Can you see them going to the GRINCH? I don’t.

      • tex2 says:

        Are you HIGH? You don’t have to answer that, I already know the answer. LOL

        Santorum’s delegates HATE Ron Paul, because RP beat up Santorum too much in the debates, and don’t forget Santorum’s rolling eyeballs during the debates whenever RP opened his mouth. Santorum has always said he would support the winner, not the whiner. You burned the bridges, as usual. LOL

        Santorum is supporting a Mormon, why wouldn’t they, especially if he requested they move to Romney? I would take a Mormon over a nutjob like RP any day. RP could get us killed, the worst Romney would do is baptize me. LOL

        Besides, we’ve had several Mormons in high level offices, and their religion didn’t get in the way of their governing, so it’s not as big of a deal as you would like it to be in your Paulite fantasyland. LOL

    • annebeck58 says:

      BTW: Ted,
      Ignore the TOOLS at CNN. Don’t believe any of their rhetoric, as it’s basically (totally) flawed. Have you ever seen ANY media source (S-Whores) completely BLACKOUT anyone running for POTUS>= especially one who’s doing so WELL?

      I say, again; BLACKOUT and BOYCOTT THE MSM and their sponsors. Let them know this= that you will not watch their lunacy, until they DO report something accurate and relevant on RON PAUL. Also, make SURE you let their advertisers KNOW– we will NOT support them as long as they support the BLACKOUT of Ron Paul.
      We have a lot more power than we ascribe to ourselves. HIT them where it really hurts– in the WALLET, and we will be doing the whole world a favor!

      Oh, and? RON PAUL 2012! HOT DANG!!

      • tex2 says:

        You really need to stay off of drugs for a few hours before you post. LOL

        Ron Paul has had much more exposure than he deserved, and even turned down several invitations. LOL

        All the MSM has to do is direct people to RP’s own site, THAT will scare them away! LOL

        Be sure to tell them about the “boycott,” the minimal decrease may not be noticeable otherwise. LOL

        Oh, and? LOL!!! HOT DANG!!!

    Can’t believe how much time you guys spend feeding trolls here. But it’s good practice for Phone from Home. Please get productive. The Goldwater Revolution took 16 yrs to get to the tipping point where Reagan was elected. What if it takes far less time for the R3VOLution to get someone into the Oval Office? AuH2O didn’t have the internet. Get involved locally. What if, 16 years from now, Justin Amash runs for president and can say, “I was one of the few in 2012 who supported Ron Paul in his run for president (as Ron Paul can say about his support of Reagan)?

    • annebeck58 says:

      Hey, Linda.
      Yes, I actually did reply to the punk, yesterday. Normally, I do not, and I do try to convince others to ignore IT, too. But, I received a response which was not full of put-downs and contained not even one of it’s usual “LOL”s.. so I gave in.
      But, of course, the idiot followed up with it’s usual crap. For that, I AM done. I will not, regardless of what the dolt says, respond again.
      (as Lil W would say; fool me once, shame on me.. fool me twice; well, you shouldn’t fool me twice..)

      It spends so much time online, though; i wonder if it’s fate will be the same as the kid who had a heart-attack (and died) from a blood-clot, after sitting at the computer for days on end? Would be a reasonable fate for this tool of the NEOCON Establishment. Too bad, for it, it does not get any of this. Oh well…

      And Ron Paul trashed Reagan, so Justin Amash will probably do the same to RP once he comes down off his “freedom at any cost” induced high! LOL

  26. VT Paul says:

    I don’t know about this Texan ad. If possible I would edit it and take out the knock against Santorum (and Newt – make a more direct appeal to Evangelicals, add in Paul’s pro-life or pro-homeschool stands).

    It might be expensive to do – but not as expensive as alienating the Santourm supporters. We need at least 66% of Santorum supporters to vote for either Ron Paul or Newt to stop Romney from getting 50% If all the future Santorum voters go to Romney we’re sunk, Romney will close the deal and get his 1144 before we get a second shot with unbound delegates.

    Not even Romney is messing around with knocks against Santorum, we all saw him pull his negative ads in PA. We can’t afford to lose because we don’t make the corrections that the other campaign has made.

    • annebeck58 says:

      Perhaps you should send that trequest to RevPac? Their ads are GREAT. (I am not giving you a hard time, just a suggestion.)
      And, as a Texan; the voice (overly-drawled twang) kind of put me off. It sounded a bit forced, if my ears are to be counted, here.
      I think many Texans do not speak like that. And, I live in Texas– it’s the kind of voice we “put on” when making fun of certain other Texans. Maybe it’s a bit too “Bush-y”?

    • tex2 says:

      RP won’t get nearly 66% of Santorum voters, I doubt he’ll get 6%. LOL

      Of course he’s not spending money against someone who withdrew. LOL

    • tex2 says:

      I would be a LOT more concerned about the WORDS Ron Paul spews than the accent. LOL

    • annebeck58 says:

      Paul- I think you’re right. The ad does not need to keep running when antorusm is not a part of the equation.
      I still don’t like the twangy-Texan voice. I’d appreciate someone more like Kinky Friedman (he has the perfect voice for this) or some other Texan who doesn’t need to put the voice on just to sound LIKE a Texan. Besides, I think Kinky digs Ron Paul, so would do this for him..

      That’s my main gripe. Most Texans do not sound like that- and the speaker also, obviously, doesn’t sound like it, either– without playing at it.

      • annebeck58 says:

        (as you may have guessed)
        This (spelling of lil ricky’s name) is what happens when trying to do too much at once, while typing quickly.
        Oh well. WHO cares what the sweater-vested racists name is? Who cares if it’s misspelled?
        I still say- GO TO KINKY for a Texas voice!

      • tex2 says:

        You only THINK Santorum is not part of the equation. He has LOTS of delegates and LOTS of influence, especially with social conservatives. LOL

        Kinky for VP! He’s a RIOT! That would lock up the nomination for RP! LOL

        But Kinky already made his pick, and for some very important and serious reasons: http://articles.businessinsider.com/2011-08-25/politics/29976529_1_jewish-cowboy-kinky-friedman-rick-perry LOL

      • annebeck58 says:

        And, for the TOOLS who don’t get it- KINKY FRIEDMAN is an Actor and SPEAKER- He does a LOT of advertising voice-overs. Nobody has suggested Kinky should be veep to anyone, yet the more foolish child will go there?
        Doug; would you PLEASE tell this idiot where to go– and I mean, away from here? Really, the utter and complete stupidity and trolling by the fool is enough to make people not wish to bother– here, at ALL.

  27. Bob Saxton says:

    Mr. Wead, thank you for posting fragments of what I wrote that came to be “A plea from inside the Santorum camp: Work with Ron Paul” that has inspired a few people to post their opinions. I am not the state coordinator, but I am the person who wrote it. — Bob Saxton, Citizen of the 25th District.

    As one simply helping the Santorum campaign and who was one of the more vocal in attempting to to persuade the Santorum people of the 25th district to take the deal and trust the Paul People when they came to us with the proposed unity slate, I am now left without a candidate that I can get behind. I had hoped that by coming here and reading some of the posts I’d get some sense of direction on how to proceed personally in this race to restore America’s freedoms. — I have. I wish the Paul Campaign and their supporters the best in their future endeavors. As I said in my original writing “I’d like to think I’ve made some lifelong friends” during the process of negotiations at our county convention. Perhaps someday those paths will cross again where it’s neccesary for an alliance to occur. But, after further examination, mainly through blogs such as this it’s best for me to put my energies into other candidates at local levels and leave the remainder of the presidential race for others to squabble over. After all, all politics is local.

    Again, thank you and good luck to you and your supporters.
    Bob Saxton

    • tex2 says:

      As I said above, Doug “edited” the story to turn it upside down. RIP (Ron “Independent” Paul) approached Santorum, not the other way around, as the headline and doctored story states.

      In the end, there was far too little in common and came very much too late in the campaign. Frankly, I’m shocked that RIP reached out to ANYONE, let alone Santorum, who he personally hammered in the debates. If anyone, I would have thought RIP would have reached out to Newt, who actually paid RIP some compliments during the debates, but Newt’s delegate count wasn’t high enough. Let the record show RIP caved on staying true to his ideals. LOL

    MAC I did. It was written on April 3rd and sent on the 4th and redistributed to both camps where I gave permission for those people that read it to do as they please. Yes, I am a Santorum supporter.

    • tex2 says:

      Then you agree Doug totally mischaracterized (I call this lying, but that’s just me – LOL) that the “plea” started in the Santorum camp?

      Can you post the document here?

      • Bob Saxton says:

        Tex, Mr Weads had my permission to do with as he wanted. At the time I wrote it, it was intened for both camps. Such a deal would’ve been and was a tactical stroke of genius that in my opinion had the essense of the partnership continued would’ve forced a brokered convention. That is if practical minds would’ve prevailed along with Santorum staying in the race. Both camps had the ability to leverage upon each others numbers. When the deal was explained to me at the Pierce County caucus by the Santorum attorney, then followed up by the district rep, then a local attorney (who happened to be a delegate), I saw the practical sense in such a partnership. Essentially it was a win win situation for both camps. What I do know is Romney’s people screwed over Pauls people in another district within the convention. When I heard about this, I thought all the better for such a deal to take place. Now whether Paul came to Santorum or vice versa after the Romney incident I don’t know for certain, but it was portrayed to me and others as though Paul came to us. It doesn’t make any difference. As far as Mr Weads title to this blog it makes no difference to me as I wrote it intended for both camps. I am not sure if you heard the video of the Romney guys little speech or not, I did and didn’t like it. It’s plain wrong to suppress anothers like he did. We bitch and moan about the democrats and their shady practices regarding voting and we’ve got Romneys people acting like they did. So with all of this being said, I’d have to say it wasn’t Pauls or Santorums camps that came up with the idea …. it really was a response to Romney’s actions …therefore HE ought to get credit for the idea :-) I don’t agree with all of Dr. Pauls ideas as far as running the country, but that doesn’t give me or any other person the right to try and shaft him or his people in the process, such as Romney did. It’s just wrong and not an isolated incident either. As far as wanting a full copy of what I wrote you’re welcome to it and can write me at HandyMan67@mail.com and I’d be happy to send it to you. As I said before, I wish the Paul campaign the best in the future and am one that sees him and his supporters as an asset to the country and not a bunch of nuts as some would feel.

  31. tex2 says:

    Here’s the letter in its entirety, I’ll provide my take on it soon, as I have a number of issues with it. LOL

    Subject: RE: Important Word of Encouragement
    Date: Wed, 4 Apr 2012 02:57:33 -0700

    I don’t speak with any authority of sorts, but this is my two cents on the alliance Who knows it might be helpful to those that might be against such a thing.

    I wanted to pass on my best to all of those going onto to represent us at the state convention. A recent article in the Tacoma News Tribune lead me to think about several things. I guess to sum up my rather large email is to put forth my two cents to those that might be having second thoughts about a Paul/Santorum alliance. Some food for thought about what it all means. Fair warning, I am not completely kind in my thoughts of the current Republican leadership, but then I am an American first. Feel free to use any of this as you wish.

    Those that know me know I am not one to mince words or keep silent about how I feel, especially when it comes to my country. So, in that we have no Republican nominee at the moment, and therefore to my knowledge, I am not violating Reagan’s 11th commandment I have some average Joe comments to the article “Santorum, Paul camps forge partnership” ran on April 1st 2012 where I believe there’s more to the story.

    Romney wants everybody to quit. Quitting may be his solution when his back is up to the wall, but it’s not what we want from our leaders. Our country has it’s back up against the wall! We need principled fighters and not a pretty boy in a suit. We nominate Romney and it’s the equivalent of making him the starting quarterback because he simply looks good in the uniform. He’s a defensive coordinators dream. The mere fact he wins in the same places liberals do in the general election says a lot. We have a candidate in Romney that says he’s not a Washington insider, yet we can go online and see him in a closed door meeting telling supporters that you don’t get The Salt Lake City Olympics done as he did without knowing people in Washington. He used all those insider resources to collect monies and support from various agencies within government. OK fine, but for him to say he isn’t an insider is a straight up lie. People that get Washington insider endorsements like he does is clearly a Washington insider. He claims to be a conservative, yet hails from one of the most liberal states in the nation and who’s health care model is now being debated in the Supreme Court. There’s a lot of people that look at Romney and simply sees more of the same. What new dynamic does he bring to the table when our country is so desperate for a fundamental change in direction? His convictions are suspect with a laundry list of flip flopping that has to have the Obama camp salivating. Is he really the person we want debating Obama or do we want a guy that will street fight him? America still likes the underdog and he comes from well to do. People can argue he made his money on his own, he created jobs, he can get stuff done, but at what expense? Obama’s people are going to paint him as the king of corporate raiders. The pillar of dissolved industrial infrastructure that continues to kill our economy. As top heavy as he is in political contributions, you have to ask yourself what kinds of political payback will be repaid if elected? One only needs to follow the money to find the answers as we can with the financial supporters of Obama in 2008. When a guy has to outspend his opponents 10-1, or whatever it was, to win his own state there has to be some flaws in the genuine support coming from the hearts of voters. Romney clearly has not won the hearts of voters. He claims to have the organizational skills to win an election and I would hope he would after several years of hands on campaign experience. After six years of campaigning and throwing a tremendous amount of money at his goal, he still remains unsuccessful. The past three years shows us what on the job training in the executive branch does to a nation. In contrast, what both Paul and Santorum has been able to do in a short period of time with the resources allotted them clearly shows their ability to lead and lead quickly. What Romney has done is win the support of those that feel his money will come into play in the general election to compete against the Obama war chest of corrupt monies… follow the money. As a nation we must tread carefully and seem never to learn the pitfalls of money and it’s involvement in the political process. Santorum is right when he says that it’s better for a shorter race in the general election in that President Obama’s money can do less damage overall. For this to occur it’s imparitive we seek a brokered convention. And, speaking of money, does Romney intend on spending the way he does to win this nomination the same way he’d run the government if he wins? Will it be as negative in nature when our country is searching for a leader that can unite and not divide us at every turn as the incumbent has demonstrated the past three years? What’s his solution going to be when he has to make a decision regarding national security, “wait a minute guys let’s talk about this,” to people that will not listen to reason? How can he compete on the issue of health care? So, what was done in Pierce County that started the idea of of both Paul and Santorum’s camps coming together was an act by the people to over rule the establishment, the money, the same old solutions to problems by the same old people that helped create those problems in the first place. We as ordinary citizens took it upon ourselves to come together as one in unity for a common goal to make our voices heard. We put aside party and put our country first. We listened to each other as we came to a common ground on issues with mutual respect that fostered trust amongst us. We actually accomplished in one afternoon what we as citizens ask of our leaders to do when they represent us in our nations capitol. In this country where checks and balances are so often a thing of the past, we common people came together as one to say No! We want something better for America’s future. In a very real sense, what we have in delegates is a check that balances the power of votes that are bought through the power of ten second sound bites we call commercials. Surely such a thing has to strike fear in the establishment so heavily vested in backing Romney. The delegate system can be used as a reward to those willing to get off the couch and actually try and make a difference through grass roots efforts where they are free to make any alliances they choose. This is a far better use of delegates than rewarding those that just watch the television and simply show up to vote. How big was Romney’s grass roots campaign again? Well, in the 25th District caucus he had ONE guy holding a political sign, virtually no political signs were seen about the community, and he had no representative speaker. So much for the claim to being “organized.” Depending on how delegate votes are used it can say we must do more as citizens than just showing up to vote. This is not the time for ordinary people to be sitting back and letting somebody else dictate to them what this country’s future will look like or if they’ll continue to keep the freedoms so many fought so hard to get and protect for us. Each individual must take bold steps and take action to preserve the gifts given us. At some point, and it might as well be now, people are going to reign back power from party leaders, unite and actually make something like a Paul/Santorum unity slate work. As I see it, it’s the only way to balance power, restore it back to the people and take it away from big money. Those against such an alliance, especially elected state delegates, might want to address future problems and complaints concerning government to the person in the mirror. I fail to see the logic in people not trusting such an arrangement that both Paul and Santorum’s people have agreed to, yet they’ll trust the same people running the party for years that have helped bring us to this junction in history. Case (s) in point with the current establishment: Why has the Republican Congress sat by idle with regards to pursuing Obama’s long form birth certificate when it’s been found to be fraudulent by a sanctioned law enforcement agency? Why did they stand by as Obama allowed the use of our military in Libya without their consent? Why has Attorney General Eric Holder not been brought up on charges by the judiciary committee? Etc etc. Any actions on their part has been pure window dressing and indicative of future responses. What will it take for them to act and at what point will it be too late for all of us? THIS, is what is meant by the term “establishment,” and by and large the same ones endorsing Romney. Personally, I trust the common Joe more than those behind the scenes that have attempted to buy, and in some cases, outright steal this nomination. Some may feel the “back room” deal between the Paul and Santorum camps that was made right out in the open corridors of the convention may be divisive, underhanded or cause disruption at the state convention. Good!!! Given the Romney camp record in several states it was about time to put a stop to their practices. Many lessons can be learned from the 25th District where Romney got the big goose egg. We need to embrace the energized supporters of Paul. We need to stop treating them like 2nd class citizens with off the wall ideals and give them props for the amazing accomplishments they’ve made in the grass roots arena. What I found in talking with many of them is they are very intelligent independent thinkers that have a genuine love for their country. We must let their voices be heard. They’ve earned it and whether you agree or disagree with them, they’re here to stay. I’d rather have them on our side than the alternative. I came away from the convention with a totally new perspective on things and like to hope I made some lifelong friends in the process. We citizens of the 25th District stopped Romney cold and said, “not in our house!” You as state delegates, right now, have the opportunity to make perhaps one of the biggest contributions to our nations history. It’s a precious gift and awesome responsibility that few get to experience. Nobody can predict the future, but we can learn from the past. We know that in 1976 we failed to nominate a conservative Ronald Reagan and got a Jimmy Carter and all accompanying pitfalls. We’re repeating history putting forth Romney and you as common patriots have the power in your votes to put a stop to it. Now is the time to put country first and for leaders to step up and rise to the occasion. Now is the time to return the power back to the people. Years from now, what story will you tell your kids and grand kids?

      Subject: RE: Important Word of Encouragement
      Date: Wed, 4 Apr 2012 02:57:33 -0700 —> Okie dokie, let’s have a look, shall we? LOL

      First of all, Bob is a Santorum supporter, so you would expect him to support his guy, much like the RIPtilians support their guy. What matters is facts and logic, of which RIPtilians have virtually zero. LOL

      I don’t speak with any authority of sorts, but this is my two cents on the alliance Who knows it might be helpful to those that might be against such a thing. —> It actually caused quite a stir within the Santorum camp, and may have help lead Rick to his withdrawal. It should also be noted this alliance was in one local area within one state, and there are examples of RIP/Romney teaming up against Santorum in other localities, not that there’s anything wrong with that. LOL http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2012/03/19/romney-and-paul-team-up-try-and-snatch-santorum-s-missouri-delegates.html LOL

      I wanted to pass on my best to all of those going onto to represent us at the state convention. —> Okay, we need to have a little bit of a slobbering love affair before we nail Romney. LOL

      A recent article in the Tacoma News Tribune lead me to think about several things. —> This is good. Stimulus/response. LOL

      I guess to sum up my rather large email is to put forth my two cents to those that might be having second thoughts about a Paul/Santorum alliance. —> Turns out there were a lot of people rejecting this idea on the Santorum side. LOL

      Some food for thought about what it all means. —> “It” being a conservative teaming up with a known Libertarian. LOL

      Fair warning, I am not completely kind in my thoughts of the current Republican leadership, but then I am an American first. —> Me too, and me too. LOL

      Feel free to use any of this as you wish. —> I am, thanks. LOL

      Those that know me know I am not one to mince words or keep silent about how I feel, especially when it comes to my country. —> Roger THAT! LOL

      So, in that we have no Republican nominee at the moment, and therefore to my knowledge, I am not violating Reagan’s 11th commandment I have some average Joe comments to the article “Santorum, Paul camps forge partnership” ran on April 1st 2012 where I believe there’s more to the story. —> April Fool’s Day? LOL By the way, the 11th commandment was written FOR the primary season, so you are definitely violating it, but Reagan did as well, so all is forgiven. It doesn’t make sense to tie your hands behind your back while your opponent is pummeling you, just ask Gingrich. LOL

      Romney wants everybody to quit. —> Every candidate wants every other candidate to quit, even Santorum said that. LOL

      Quitting may be his solution when his back is up to the wall, but it’s not what we want from our leaders. —> I think he’s thinking more about political psychological warfare and having more money on hand for Barry. LOL

      Our country has it’s back up against the wall! —> Agreed. LOL

      We need principled fighters and not a pretty boy in a suit. —> I don’t think Barry is that pretty, but that’s just me. LOL

      We nominate Romney and it’s the equivalent of making him the starting quarterback because he simply looks good in the uniform. —> I think you are underestimating him. LOL

      He’s a defensive coordinators dream. —> Barry is the dream opponent, not Romney. LOL

      The mere fact he wins in the same places liberals do in the general election says a lot. —> It also says he should be able to beat Barry in the conservative places and have a landslide victory. LOL

      We have a candidate in Romney that says he’s not a Washington insider, yet we can go online and see him in a closed door meeting telling supporters that you don’t get The Salt Lake City Olympics done as he did without knowing people in Washington. —> Knowing insiders and BEING an insider are two different things. LOL

      He used all those insider resources to collect monies and support from various agencies within government. —> You mean he shouldn’t try to raise money to win? LOL

      OK fine, but for him to say he isn’t an insider is a straight up lie. —> Disagree, see above. LOL

      People that get Washington insider endorsements like he does is clearly a Washington insider. —> He’s my third pick as well, but now what? LOL

      He claims to be a conservative, yet hails from one of the most liberal states in the nation and who’s health care model is now being debated in the Supreme Court. —> A Republican being elected in a lib state is quite an accomplishment in my book. The model at the state level is significantly different than the national level, in terms of the 10th Amendment and the number of people impacted. LOL

      There’s a lot of people that look at Romney and simply sees more of the same. —> I’ll take more of Bush than Barry any day, and I wasn’t real hot on Bush, either. LOL

      What new dynamic does he bring to the table when our country is so desperate for a fundamental change in direction? —> We don’t really know, but we need to get rid of Barry. Period. LOL

      His convictions are suspect with a laundry list of flip flopping that has to have the Obama camp salivating. —> At least he’s flopping to the right, and Barry now has a record that can be attacked. Viciously. LOL

      Is he really the person we want debating Obama or do we want a guy that will street fight him? —> I think a rock could do a decent job against Barry. LOL

      America still likes the underdog and he comes from well to do. —> He also worked his way up, and wasn’t handed everything. LOL

      People can argue he made his money on his own, he created jobs, he can get stuff done, but at what expense? —> I don’t know, what expense? LOL

      Obama’s people are going to paint him as the king of corporate raiders. —> Of course they will, the Rs already did that as well. LOL

      The pillar of dissolved industrial infrastructure that continues to kill our economy. —> ??? LOL

      As top heavy as he is in political contributions, you have to ask yourself what kinds of political payback will be repaid if elected? —> Since he’s already rich, perhaps less than someone who isn’t.

      One only needs to follow the money to find the answers as we can with the financial supporters of Obama in 2008. —> Apples and oranges. I don’t think Romney can be compared and found to be identical to Barry in this regard. LOL

      When a guy has to outspend his opponents 10-1, or whatever it was, to win his own state there has to be some flaws in the genuine support coming from the hearts of voters. —> Agreed, but it isn’t Romney’s fault the other candidates DIDN’T raise much money. LOL

      Romney clearly has not won the hearts of voters. —> Agreed, he will have to emphasize Barry needs to go. LOL

      He claims to have the organizational skills to win an election and I would hope he would after several years of hands on campaign experience. —> Me, too. LOL

      After six years of campaigning and throwing a tremendous amount of money at his goal, he still remains unsuccessful. —> Looks like he’s doing pretty well to me. LOL

      The past three years shows us what on the job training in the executive branch does to a nation. —> That was my biggest beef with Barry, and thankfully Romney has executive and executive branch experience, both of which are a strength. LOL

      In contrast, what both Paul and Santorum has been able to do in a short period of time with the resources allotted them clearly shows their ability to lead and lead quickly. —> But neither has executive branch experience, a significant weakness that even YOU agree with, right? LOL

      What Romney has done is win the support of those that feel his money will come into play in the general election to compete against the Obama war chest of corrupt monies… follow the money. —> It includes those people, but not just those people. LOL

      As a nation we must tread carefully and seem never to learn the pitfalls of money and it’s involvement in the political process. —> You can thank McCain/Feingold for that! LOL

      Santorum is right when he says that it’s better for a shorter race in the general election in that President Obama’s money can do less damage overall. —> I agree with that. LOL

      For this to occur it’s imparitive we seek a brokered convention. —> With the recent events, it’s too late. Should have started that MUCH sooner, and include at least 3 other candidates. LOL

      And, speaking of money, does Romney intend on spending the way he does to win this nomination the same way he’d run the government if he wins? —> Hopefully we’ll find out, and hope the answer is no. LOL

      Will it be as negative in nature when our country is searching for a leader that can unite and not divide us at every turn as the incumbent has demonstrated the past three years? —> It will be extremely “negative” regardless of the R nominee. Barry MUST do this, as his record is TERRIBLE.

      What’s his solution going to be when he has to make a decision regarding national security, “wait a minute guys let’s talk about this,” to people that will not listen to reason? —> He has a lot of authority in that area, and I trust him a lot more to make the right decision than Barry or RIP.

      How can he compete on the issue of health care? —> By stating what I stated above. LOL

      So, what was done in Pierce County that started the idea of of both Paul and Santorum’s camps coming together was an act by the people to over rule the establishment, the money, the same old solutions to problems by the same old people that helped create those problems in the first place. —> Too little, too late.

      How big was Romney’s grass roots campaign again? —> Apprently, big enough. LOL

      Well, in the 25th District caucus he had ONE guy holding a political sign, virtually no political signs were seen about the community, and he had no representative speaker. —> Perhaps this area wasn’t a priority for him. A candidate can’t be everywhere all the time. LOL

      So much for the claim to being “organized.” —> I think you misunderstand the difference between being organized and being everywhere all the time. LOL

      Depending on how delegate votes are used it can say we must do more as citizens than just showing up to vote. —> Agreed, and it appears Romney learned that 4 years ago and the other candidates didn’t. LOL

      This is not the time for ordinary people to be sitting back and letting somebody else dictate to them what this country’s future will look like or if they’ll continue to keep the freedoms so many fought so hard to get and protect for us. —> Too little, too late. LOL

      Why did they stand by as Obama allowed the use of our military in Libya without their consent? —> Beats me. LOL

      Why has Attorney General Eric Holder not been brought up on charges by the judiciary committee? Etc etc. —> Beats me. LOL

      Any actions on their part has been pure window dressing and indicative of future responses. —> Agreed. LOL

      THIS, is what is meant by the term “establishment,” and by and large the same ones endorsing Romney. —> Agreed, I think the Tea Party should be supported, NOT RIP.

      Personally, I trust the common Joe more than those behind the scenes that have attempted to buy, and in some cases, outright steal this nomination. —> As long as “Joe” isn’t a lawyer, I agree. LOL

      Some may feel the “back room” deal between the Paul and Santorum camps that was made right out in the open corridors of the convention may be divisive, underhanded or cause disruption at the state convention. —> Too little, too late. LOL
      Good!!! —> But too little, too late. LOL

      Given the Romney camp record in several states it was about time to put a stop to their practices. —> And as mentioned above, the Santorum and RIP camps as well. LOL

      Many lessons can be learned from the 25th District where Romney got the big goose egg. —> No doubt. LOL

      We need to embrace the energized supporters of Paul. —> I suggest you embrace conservatism, not libertarians. LOL

      We need to stop treating them like 2nd class citizens with off the wall ideals and give them props for the amazing accomplishments they’ve made in the grass roots arena. —> I don’t agree. I think we should use their tactics to minimize them. LOL

      What I found in talking with many of them is they are very intelligent independent thinkers that have a genuine love for their country. —> Just read this blog, that hasn’t been my experience at all. LOL

      We must let their voices be heard. —> Agreed, I think this is the best weapon against them. LOL

      They’ve earned it and whether you agree or disagree with them, they’re here to stay. —> Let them stay, it will help educate others about REAL conservatism. LOL

      I’d rather have them on our side than the alternative. —> If you mean going 3rd party, I disagree. LOL

      I came away from the convention with a totally new perspective on things and like to hope I made some lifelong friends in the process. —> Good for you. Did you leave with your conservative ideas intact? LOL

      We citizens of the 25th District stopped Romney cold and said, “not in our house!” —> So what? That’s only one place and the nomination process is virtually over. LOL

      You as state delegates, right now, have the opportunity to make perhaps one of the biggest contributions to our nations history. —> Too little, too late. LOL

      It’s a precious gift and awesome responsibility that few get to experience. —> Agreed, but too little, too late. LOL

      Nobody can predict the future, but we can learn from the past. –> And Romney learned from 2008 and the others didn’t. LOL

      We know that in 1976 we failed to nominate a conservative Ronald Reagan and got a Jimmy Carter and all accompanying pitfalls. —> And we forgot when electing Barry. It seems like it has to happen once a generation because they weren’t there the previous time around. LOL

        Tex2,
        You know, I could argue and provide further comment to your narrative, but it’s pretty clear to me that your not here to provide any solutions. Especially when it’s too much to answer the question I asked you. LOL – Too little too late. Guess you’re too busy pointing out everybody elses take on things and that’s cool, be yourself. Your inactive response to my question only reveals more why I have respect for the vast majority of Paul’s supporters. I won’t bother explaining the sound reasoning for such and delay you any further. You’ve surely got bigger and better things to tend to in your quest for “excellence in blogging.” Reach for the stars and be the best little blogger you can be I say. Some of your remarks I agree with…but as you say ..too little too late.

      • annebeck58 says:

        Oh, Bob. We’ve all been there; we’ve all tried to explain our thoughts and post the words of Dr Paul, and have even reiterated your words, to this troll, yet has been to no avail.
        tex2 (read: text-eww) is really not here to argue any points. His (non-existent) points simply don’t hold water, so don’t expect that anything this troll says to be coherent or rational.
        It’s why we have, generally, stopped responding, whatsoever, to the infamous troll-er of the Doug Wead blogsite (as well as other Pro-Paul sites), any more. Trying to get this guy to comprehend any of this is akin to butting one’s head against a brick wall. It won’t get you anywhere and will leave you with quite a headache,

        I did enjoy your letter, and I did agree with quite a bit of it. The more rational Paul supporter will welcome ALL comers–ALL of the Santorum flock are surely welcome to debate, to ask questions, and to come to the side of the only conservative still in this race. I think all we ask of anyone questioning Ron Paul and our reasons for backing him is a bit of decency, We have not found same with this troll.
        We just have to get past all of the (spamming and ridiculous) repeated troll-posts by text-eww. It’s not too difficult, and if you do it for long enough, will become habit.
        Take care– and thanks, again, for your inspirational letter.

        Where did you say you worked again, Anne? http://now.msn.com/living/0414-women-working-study.aspx LOL

      • Bob Saxton says:

        Thank you Ann for your kind comments and you can always count on me being respectful. Yes, I am done with with what’s his name as well. I still haven’t got an answer to my question I posed earlier which is the norm for the common Romney supporter. I found Paul supporters to be very good people at our county convention. It lasted close to 15 hours so in between votes many of us engaged in some very constructive dialogue. I want Obama out of there, but I don’t see Romney having much chance defeating him. Even if Romney were to win I don’t see much change coming to Washington D.C. as a result. I think we need to do a major overhaul with regards to following the constitution and ending corruption. Romney may have a small effect on such things, but not much. I see more business as usual on the horizon either way. I think given the choice between Paul or Romney, I’d vote for Paul just out of principle. I realize this is a forum for presidential candidates, but we have also got to do something about that dysfunctional congress, more so in the senate. Question: Do you have any ideas on who Ron Paul would consider as a running mate?

        Thank you Ann for your kind comments and you can always count on me being respectful. –> What a sweet guy. Too bad you don’t consider the nasty things she said about Rick Santorum, and is probably snickering behind your back right now. LOL

        Question: Do you have any ideas on who Ron Paul would consider as a running mate? —> Two RIPtilians have suggested Dennis Kucinich and Ralph Nader, on this site. No, really. They did. LOL

    Dear, Doug — this is your HOME page, and all of us posting here are your guests. Don’t know about your tolerance level, but mine ends when an unwelcome guest tries to set my home on fire, in order to chase out all the welcomed people I’ve invited!

    No normal exchange can be held here — since the #2 quickly fills in all REPLY slots….so no-one else can respond sequentially to what was stated before. This is its main goal (secondary is its spittings of hatred to all that’s good)!

    The #2′s strategy is simply hitting the REPLY button (posting some vitriol), then another REPLY button — thus VIRTUALLY HIJACKING any thread from allowing others to directly respond to the original post.

    PUT a STOP to IT — send Doug the needed message/program to BAN/BLOCK this Shill from his blog!

      I second Surfishers request, please ban tex2 from your site!

      Tex 2 contributes nothing of value to the discussion and nearly every reply contains a vile insult intended to harass contributors and drive readers away.

      • tex2 says:

        Doug Wead

        I second my own request, please ban Surfisher and Wendy from your site! LOL

        Surfisher and Wendy contribute nothing of value to the discussion and nearly every reply contains a vile insult intended to harass contributors and drive readers away. LOL

        For instance, they won’t respond to these very germane issues:

        Why Ron Paul would NOT be a good president:
        1. He is old, mousey, whiny, grumpy, skinny, etc. Do not underestimate the importance of these factors, as a very large number of voters are not familiar with the issues, and vote for vanity. Sad but true. It does no good to have good ideas when you don’t have the presidential image, and Ron has neither.
        2. He has been in Congress for 2 decades and doesn’t have a single bill to his name. We elected someone president with zero accomplishments in 2008, why would we want to do that again? How can you expect him to be able to lead the country when he can’t lead a single bill to fruition after 20 years?
        3. He even voted against his own bill to audit the Federal Reserve, because he didn’t get every single detail he wanted. He is so stubbornly rigid he simply takes his toys and goes home if he doesn’t get every little detail he wants.
        4. Many of his domestic policies are admirable, but how does he expect to implement them when he will have to work with Congress to get many of them turned into a reality? Will he simply hold his breath until Congress lets him get his way, because he has zero track record of using any other tactic to be successful?
        5. Most of his foreign policies are dangerous. If we pull out of foreign countries, the vacuum WILL be filled by Russia, China, etc. Once you lose your toehold, it is VERY difficult to expand military operations if the need arises. Think about how hard it would have been for the U.S. to fight Hitler if England had fallen. For example, if China decides they don’t want to allow free flow of oil, we would have no recourse, as it takes years, if not decades, to develop independent energy sources. He is simply naive to the point of being a traitor to his own country. Also, we need forward positioned military presence to fight the global war on terror. It isn’t being fought only in Iraq and Afghanistan, there are operations literally around the world preventing future 9/11 type attacks that simply cannot be fought by guarding our own borders, 9/11 should have taught us that. We must therefore disrupt the terrorist cells wherever they are, so they cannot organize, plan, recruit, train, equip, and attack again. To not do this would be suicidal.
        For the above and other reasons, Ron gets the pot smoking and “freedom at any cost” crowd, and that’s all he will ever get. LOL

    • annebeck58 says:

      Wendy-
      I donated, I thought; I went to the site, yesterday, and I pledged.. but I did not see my money info come up (no request), which I thought could be due to them using my past info, from last times I donated.
      Would you know if I need to go back and actually enter my money info in order to ensure the funds ARE given to the Paul campaign? I’d hate for it to not go through but I have not received a note from my bank or paypal (not sure which I used last times to donate), saying they had received the request.
      I remember, when i hit, pledge;; it said I WOULD get a request from the campaign to follow through on my donation, but I haven’t seen that, either.
      Would anyone know what’s up? Thanks!

      • Wendy Jones says:

        Annebeck58

        Should you re-enter your donation? I would say yes and also check your bank account.

        I have always received a confirmation sent to my e-mail after submitting a donation.

      • annebeck58 says:

        Yes- my bank does not have any funds on hold, so I am assuming the donation did not go through. If it has, well; it will just be a bigger donation, which is okay by me, too!
        Thanks for your input.

      • Wendy Jones says:

        annebeck58

        “If it has, well; it will just be a bigger donation, which is okay by me, too! ”

      • annebeck58 says:

        Well, I finally got a receipt. I think this “pledge site” that someone else made up has people confused. The thing is like the RonPaul site (ronpaul2012.com) but, when you finish, it has NOT taken the cash you tried to donate.
        (or, I think that’s the case).
        People should leave well enough alone, don’t make up pledge sites, and just let us donate as we have ALL ALONG. I wonder how many others are waiting for receipts after having gone to that pledge site? Wonder how much cash has NOT made it to Ron Paul campaign for this email that went out to all past donors?

        *Btw: have you noticed nobody is bothering us? I think it’s finally been banned. YES, yay, and good.

      • tex2 says:

  35. Bob Saxton says:

    Tex2,
    The point of me coming on here was to gain some ideas on how or if I might find some way to continue contributing to the presidential race. I see a lot of shots taken at Paul and his people, but haven’t seen any substance put forth by you to provide any solutions on how to elect a solid conservative to office. I thought maybe you might be able to tell everybody here what things you have done boots on the ground where you live to achieve such goals. Please, enlighten us with your wisdom.

    I’ll go on record right here and say the Republican Party are a bunch of fools not to find a way to include Paul more. Why? Because boots on the ground, grass roots, and tactically speaking Paul’s people are sharp. As I see it, conservatives are probably going to get their hats handed to them in the general election. Why? Because they fail to recognize and adopt the right things Paul is and has been doing to win. As I wrote before, I’d rather have them on our side than the alternative. If Paul goes third party it’s going to get real interesting.

    • tex2 says:

      Bob,

      I have had problems with the Republican Party since at least 1992. The bottom line is there isn’t enough difference between the Rs and Ds to make much of a difference. However, this does not mean we should move to a Libertarian candidate.

      It’s too late to get a conservative this time around, we’ll have to influence Romney as much as we can and plan for 2016 and beyond. Meanwhile, we need more conservatives at every level, local, state, and federal. I think the Tea Party has a lot of good concepts, but the one thing we should do is get term limits for Congress, a total of 12 years is my suggestion. This should be the Tea Party’s rallying cry.

      If we can’t beat Barry in this climate, we need to start over. RIP hasn’t won anything, except for storming the caucuses with their people. That is NOT a difficult tactic to copy, but the general election doesn’t have caucuses.

      Below are my issues with Paul, how would you respond to them?

      Why Ron Paul would NOT be a good president:
      1. He is old, mousey, whiny, grumpy, skinny, etc. Do not underestimate the importance of these factors, as a very large number of voters are not familiar with the issues, and vote for vanity.

    • tex2 says:

      Dino-Conservatives (Dinocons) are FAR more dangerous. LOL

      Neo means new, or updated. LOL

      What is a Dinocon? Someone who thinks the world is similar to the 18th century, and therefore applies 18th century fixes to 21st century problems. LOL

      Our Founding Fathers would be appalled the Constitution was being applied in this manner by the Dinocons, as they wrote the Constitution to be a document that is flexible to changing conditions, but never fear, Neocons are here. LOL

      As an example, the 18th century world provided significant protection to America via the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. This is no longer true, with modern travel, weapon delivery systems, the internets, etc. LOL

      Dinocons think we can pull back our military to the border and stand guard over America. LOL

  38. Surfisher says:

    Dear Doug Wead,

    How can we have confidence that you are capable of managing Ron Paul’s campaign, when you are unable to manage your own blog?

    On any other Forum the destructive manipulations of “tex2″ would have been removed by a moderator, and the creature banned (regardless how many IP’s it uses, there are programs that can track and block them).

    On this, and even OTHER forums, I’ve read people saying that while they read your blog, they won’t post on it — since they don’t want to be verbally abused by the #2. Their take is: Why bother posting or replying here — the #2 is going to hijack the thread by peppering it with insults and non-sensical multi-replies….

    In the last 30 days, IT has posted more times than the combined total of all other posters (also, ITS total word count exceeds that of the rest)!

    Many good people are leaving your forum because of the above. Unless you take care of it, why should we stay?

    Are you paying attention to the people voting to BAN this waste-of-protoplasm?!

    So far the vote to BAN it from your site is:
    1) Surfisher
    2) Sharon Kuhn
    3) annebeck58
    4) christopher Deligate of Missouri

      Then watch Mitt the Joke:
      An EMPTY stadium with about a hundred sycophants only… mostly yawning.

      Then see the THOUSANDS of REAL AMERICANS and their genuineness on Ron Paul’s rallies!

      But the main media never shows this REALITY — so, are we to stand by and allow them to steal this Election away from us — when clearly the TRUE Americans have spoken?!

        Yes, Surfisher! I love that video– and will share it, again. with the me-me-media toolzzzzzz..; especially.
        Thanks for taking-on the ridiculous posting of the robotic idjit. I don’t know why Doug has not yet banned IT, but hope he will see these notes and will do so.
        I know I don’t post here as often as I was, and this is mainly because each and every post, here, is (ahem) “responded to” with the same drivel by the same jerk. Still, there’s a LOT to do, including telling the media we ARE blacking-out them, and boycotting all of their sponsors. For a short-list of sponsors, check out my wp blog. Remember, as blackout is well and good, but a boycott includes a list of DEMANDS– and such demands are sent to the interested parties. Simply not purchasing products of advertisers is not enough. Telling them we are doing this, and why we are doing this, is what will work. It’s the only thing that will get the MSM to finally REPORT on RON PAUL.

        annebeck58 — hi,
        I’m training it like Pavlov’s dog — by the time IT gets banned, IT will be reduced to just barking…!

         Here is another good one!

      Rmoney — “Staff, get me some internet trolls to spew forth hatred towards my opponents.”

      So they run this ad:

      “Looking for 300+lb pimply failures that live in mum’s basement.
      Must be hateful of all that’s good (since you hate yourself most because of the waste of protoplasm you’ve become); unable to crawl away from the computer, so mum gives you monthly sponge baths (also, occasionally removes the bedpan).
      Why post your venomous spittings for free, when we’ll pay you handsomely to be our Shill — a fistful of food stamps and a bottle of hooch each week!”

      That’s how the #2 got this “lucrative” job — why troll for free, when it can shill for so much more….

      (hope I didn’t misspell ANYTHING important….)

    • Surfisher says:

      Ron Paul MUST stay on course — keep up the uphill battle to win as many delegates as possible (that the GOP does not prevent him to do, by their obvious chicanery)!

      Ron Paul needs to take Rmoney to Tampa. Then, the PERFIDY of the GOP will be Nationally telecast (hundreds of thousands of Real Americans supporting the only Patriot (RP), vs a few hundred mousey sycophants for Mitt Grosny, will be hard to dismiss)!
      —————————————————————————

      The American People have long known that the Democrat Party cheats and lies — so they are used to their chicanery (the reason, many call them Democrooks).
      It is high time that they NOW see the GOP is no different — the Republicons fraud, cheating and strong-arming to “elect” Mitt Grosny, may finally have a televised exposure!
      ——————————————————————————–

      After the Tampa Convention — which will probably be the most memorable of spectacles this last 50 years — Ron Paul should take the best path that assures he’ll be part of the Presidential debates vs BO.

      Ron Paul MUST be part of the Presidential debates — so, people can judge the difference between a real Human and plastic sub-humans!
      —————————————————————————————

      It is not unprecedented for a candidate to be the standard bearer for more than one party (I think in 1896, William Jennings Bryan was the nominee of the Democrats, the Populist Party, and the Silver Republicans; and I believe in 1872, Horace Greeley was nominated by the Democrats and also by the Liberal-Republican Party).

      Doug Wead — hope you have similar strategy in mind!

    *Mitt Romney, American Parasite*

    (Mitt Grosny — Romney The Terrible (my prefered title))

    http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article31153.htm

    It explains how Bain Capital worked. They would buy SUCCESSFUL companies, with little down, borrowed huge amounts, saddling them with crushing debt, refused to continue equipment purchases or maintenance. Then they would pay themselves huge “management” fees.
    —————————————————–

    Some notable excerpts:

    “Romney is not a vulture capitalist, as Rick Perry says, since vultures eat dead carcasses,” notes Josh Kosman, who has written about the private equity business for 15 years. He’s “more of a parasitic capitalist, since he destroys profitable businesses.” (The host must be healthy enough to be force-fed all that debt, then slowly bled to death…until the parasites drain all the wealth for themselves).

    “When Bain was about to buy a company, its partners would hold a meeting. “He said that about half the time [they] would talk about cutting workers,” Kosman says. “They would never talk about adding workers. He said that job growth was never part of the plan.” That claim was buttressed by the Associated Press, which studied 45 companies bought by Bain during Romney’s first decade. It found that 4,000 workers lost their jobs. The real figure is likely thousands higher, since the analysis didn’t account for bankruptcies and factory and store closings.

    “The Armco plant closing involved more than the torching of 750 jobs, Morrow says. Contractors and suppliers collapsed. Workers’ children and widows lost health care and pension benefits. And while Bain received millions in tax breaks—paid for by the very people left holding the bag—Romney walked away millions richer.”

    Ron Paul to WIN — or America to End 2012

    Take your pick…there are no other options!
    —————————————————————
    Ron Paul must take Rmoney to Tampa — to expose the GOP’s perfidy — when hundreds of thousands of Real Americans will come to the Convention voluntarily, supporting Ron Paul, the ONLY REAL AMERICAN PATRIOT in this race (vs a few hundred BUSED Rmoney bullies pretending they are actual people)!

    If the Republican Convention cheats Ron Paul out of The Nomination — then, go Third Party!

    There MUST NOT be a way allowed, for Rmoney to “debate” BO one-on-one — since this will be a Clowns’ Show (two liars trying to out-lie each other…when they are one-and-the-same HUMAN TRASH)!

    Ron Paul MUST be part of the DEBATES — so, he can clearly show up THESE politically trained monkeys for what they are — The ULTIMATE Destroyers of the USA!
    ————————————————————–

    Elect Ron Paul as President, if you want to Save America — vote for anyone else, if you WANT to DESTROY the USA!

    Superb parody of a “debate” btw Rmoney and BO — SHARE IT!

    (Note the exquisite sardonic touch — only one person is watching the two clowns….LOL!)
