    Then maybe he can speak at their convention.

    You won't find any reference to Paul's position that we should drastically cut military spending as Romney has pledged to increase military spending. It will be interesting to see what the Paul supporters think of this RNC tactic.

    bunk. Ron Paul gave his spot to his son to his son could say "unconstitutional" repeated to pass the crown to him. Nearly all evangelists try to pass off to one of their sons.

    They didn't not allow him to speak. They invited him too.

    I think it goes deeper than that. This guy hasn't been campaigning for president in months because he had some secret delegate strategy which is why he kept accepting donations I guess. Remember he also never went after Romney like the other candidates and withdrew from one debate in which it would have been himself and Romney one on one. I think at some point the supporters need to call bull**** on his campaign. I feel bad for the Paul supporters because they seem to genuinely believe in him and they are going to have hard time accepting the reality. I find it almost amazing people can believe in a politician as much as they seem to. They remind of the Kath Bates character in in the movie "Primary Colors" which Billy Bob's character described as having a case of galloping TB(True Believerism). However, there is quite a bit of circumstantial evidence that he was Romney's wingman and not really running for president all along. That may not be fair but when you stop campaigning but don't stop accepting donations and are paying a boat load of your relatives with those campaign contributions I call bull****.

    However, there is a battle raging between the NeoCons and Paul supporters. They will either find a REAL concensus or the party will explode. Limbaugh is not a complete idiot. He knows that too much resistance will only destroy the GOP and leave the field open for the Democrats. He is such a knee jerk reactionary against Democrats that that probably terrifies him.

    eyeroll. Ron Paul never wanted a personalit cult. He loves his country and knows that we must try to find peace or we will destroy ourselves. He cannot win. He knows that. He is too old. He has said over and over that he hopes to be the trailblazer, the seed capital, the scout, etc. Leave and find some other idol if you need one.

    Stop being so closed minded. Read your bible. Read another. Read another. Read Rand. Read Steinbeck. Contrast and compare. If you are too lazy then take my word for it or pipe down. They all say the same things just in different ways.

    You seem to be close to the truth and maybe you are on it and I am just not understanding you.

    The Democrats lost their nerve for removing their baggage after Lieberman. Lieberman is a somewhat moderate authoritarian. He is not a Liberal (think Nolan chart). The true left should take Ron Paul's lead. Citizens United is providing us with more power to take out the garbage. Feingold was actually a good guy, just horribly wrong on free speech. But I would take him over Lieberman any day.

    What should have been learned from the housing bubble...

    Repair your own house and you will live happily. Stop blaming the neighbors for your property values. Homes are not a good investment anyway. They either rot or maintenance becomes too costly. They are a good temporary shelter.

    This is a metaphor.

    I have no clue what you are saying other than trailblazer which he's not. A trailblazer was Perot who punched the donkeys and elephants right in the face with a third party run. If he wanted to get his message out he would run third party instead he transferred quite a bit of money from donors to his family which is far from trailblazing.

    FYI. I don't believe in idols and if I did I damn sure wouldn't find it in the bible or the political class.

    It is quite clear you don't understand. You are among the willfully ignorant. You are an authoratarian. You never understood Ron Paul.

    Where is Ross Perot? He did have some positive impact on the budget woes, but everything else he represented is dying, dead or gone. Fortress America is not the solution. We are not going to go back to the 1950s. It would destroy us. Go ahead move to hinterlands and die. Do you not know why your regions grow poorer by the day. You are engaged in a conspiracy against yourself.

    Ron Paul is a trailblazer and he is the best hope for this country. He is a libertarian consensus builder. He tolerates your support while clearly indicating that you are a repulsive thinker. He has learned his lessons from associating too closely with you. But he needs his useful idiots too.

    The irony is that poorest migrants will be forced to follow you because that is the only place they can afford the cost of living. You are going extinct and you are all too old and warn out to d o anyhting about it. You can try to whip your children into a frenzy, but that will burn them out before they are of much use. Your best children will roll their eyes and escape you.
