    The US, in its own decline, is showing this same self-destructive tendency. The worse things get, the greater the inclination of the citizenry to say, “Carry on, everything’s fine.”

Ron Paul Recants The GOP, Just Says No To Keynesians

Tyler Durden's picture


As we anticipate more demand-rigging, pump-priming, can-kicking experiments from Bernanke today, Ron Paul just came out with his latest stream of truthiness (via Bloomberg):


Indeed, what is the opposite of 'between a rock and a hard place' when deciding on just who will provide 'change' in November.

Rights mean you have a right to your life. You have a right to your liberty, and you should have a right to keep the fruits of your labor [abolish IRS]....I, in a way, don’t like to use those terms: gay rights, women’s rights, minority rights, religious rights. There’s only one type of right. It’s the right to your liberty.”    - Ron Paul

Down with Rom-Bama and the hostile buyout of the USA!  Just like a target of a takeover, they've pumped up the debt and pushed the imbalanced nation to the cliff's edge.  And when it crashes, they will get first dibs on the choicest salvage!

Why won't RP just endorse Gary Johnson? Otherwise some of us will choose to vote Libertarian, some of us will choose to write in Ron Paul. I'd rather see Johnson get 10% of the vote than see a lot of people trying to choose between Kang and Kodos, others writing in, and others voting Libertarian. It would certainly be a more unified message to TPTB.

America IRS is collect tax for pay Interest Debt to Banks. Function of Treasury. Treasury is heirarchy of Secret Service. Secret Service is 1) monitor counterfeicy, 2) protect president monitor presidency. POTUS and general election candidate is under Secret Service protection monitoring.

Federal Reserve Secret Service is more powerful, more scary, more ruthless than NKGB!

I like Ron and Rand but I am skeptical.  Ron had Romney's back against Santorum.  romney let Ron Paul stay at Romney's mansion on Lake Winnepesakee, NH during the NH primary.  Ron Paul was buddies with Romney all through the primaries.

We also know Newt was brought in by Adelson to also cover Romney's back.   Santorum would have beaten Romney if Newt was not there.  Ron Paul would have been the best choice or Rand but Santorum was better than Romney.

HOT: Ron Paul Left Tampa Yesterday Posted by Lew Rockwell on August 29, 2012 10:49 AM

Ron, Carol, and one of their granddaughters left the GOP snake pit yesterday afternoon, but the State was not yet through with them. At the little airport in Clearwater, 8 TSA agents descended on them and ordered them not to board their private plane. First, the pilots, the airplane, and the passengers would have to be screened in great detail, because Romney might be nearby. After a long examination of the pilots and their credentials, the agents said they had to check the plane for explosives. One of the pilots noted that the plane, full of aviation fuel, was already a bomb. Then Carol Paul, who has a pacemaker, refused to be screened, and an aide started taking video of the whole rotten process. At that point, the TSA backed down and let them through, to Texas and freedom

Good for him for leaving.

Ron Paul is the product of a gentler age......and I do mean that in the best of ways.   To quote Reagon, "I didn't leave the party.   The party left me."

No, it makes sense.  There was a Taft-ian wing of the party that was anti-intervention.  Things just aren't bad enough where the average voter has made the connection between an interventionist foreign policy and our domestic issues.  That time will come, however.

There is at least a modicum of hope for the Stupid Party.  There's nothing left but turning America into Chicago for the Evil Party.

All true. But I have to point out that there is nothing left of the Taftian wing. The only thing left in the Stupid Party is a bunch of post-neocon pawns. The central irony, IMO, is that the supporters of this party have the ability to fool themselves into believing that these guys are going to do something different - this time.

At least with the Demican party, the useful idiot crew believes (and receives) loot from the rest of us (which is of course what they want).

Calling the GOP "stupid party" would involve that there is a form of intelligence at play. I would say that's true for no more than 10% of the GOP base. The rest is Zombie Party. Listen to Bill O'Reilley, boo the golden rule, be very very afraid of terrorism happening in your backyard, and vote like you are told to.

Good luck IF you can write in.  HAVE YOU CHECKED YOUR BALLOT?

Here in Texas, unless at least one third party candidate gets on the November Ballet as a write-in, it is over, Texans will be unable to write in Ron Paul. Per county voting officials.

Make no mistake, no write-in, no vote by me.  I WAS 60 on July 26, 1952, and I have voted every general election since I could first vote at 20 years old (overseas absentee twice)

No write-in for the only man that has any idea of the constitution or sound money, and I am out of here quickly.

Dude, you're old. Really old.


Just teasing. But I will note that when I wrote in a presidential candidate in PA in 1992 I later found out that it wasn't counted because the presidential ballot must contain a vote for president and vice president. They've always got something up their sleeve.

So write in Ron Paul with Gary Johnson as veep.  Then they would theoretically have to count it.  The more likely outcome is that your vote would be used to line the bottom of a bird cage, but at least you followed their protocol.

There can be no grand tally of those who write in Paul if everyone writes in a different VEEP. So even if it was counted it would never be reported.

@LawsofPhysics: I agree: "Write in Ron Paul, sleep well."

My mom, a lifelong Democrat, told me some months ago that Ron Paul was the only candidate that made sense to her.

Instead of normally cancelling out each other's vote, this election we have promised each other to write in Ron Paul.

Maybe an "adopt-a-liberal" program like this could sweep the nation :-)

If the Bamster wins because of it, then so be it; I'm prepared largely because of ZH.
