Fascist Soup reports:

“I made an agreement to support all the republican incumbents in Texas.”


Ron Paul supporters be aware that you now need to review the candidates Ron endorses closely to ensure they are not neo-con trash.

I give Ron Paul credit for this though, no other politician on the planet would openly admit to making a deal to support incumbents that they disagreed with. So I have to give him a token point for being openly honest about his actions.

That said, liberty minded individuals need to closely review his endorsements and not take for granted that they support freedom and limited government.

I have to say, one of my stalwart reasons for support of Ron Paul is his supposed view of anti interventionalism and anti Empire.

Has he been maneuvered?

I do not know what to think anymore about anyone in government.

If you are going to dance with a devil then you have to know what music is being played.
Thats the only way I can say it.
Hate the game not the player is another way of saying it.
Ron Paul is good at what he does....he can't beat them without being one of them...those are the rules.

Well honestly, Ron Paul fills a market niche in politics. He appeals to a certain part of the electorate and makes them feel warm and fuzzy about themselves...

But he is still part of the system. If he ever became a real threat to the system, the media beast would shut him down.

Remember how he was lampooned during the primaries and framed as a lunatic? Something like that.

Sir, I think that is a blessing in disguise.

You should not trust anyone in government, ever, for any reason.

This serves as a wake up call for people who may have fallen into that trap.

I agree with you as the level government has reached, it is only expected to do the best you can do. Everyone makes their mistakes, just too many people in power make the most. I still give credit to Ron Paul as I believe he is still and will always be in the the interest of the people. I can't even say a quarter of that about anyone in power right now. Just goes to show who we have running the show.

I believe Ron Paul is one of the good guys.
He has always been against the Federal Reserve and is for less government.
But in todays political climate he might have to get his hands dirtier then he might want to.
Hey at least he is trying tho.

Yeah I agree.

It is important we don't fall into the trap of letting others do our thinking for us.

Ron Paul has done more to wake people up to the ideals of liberty than any other politician in America since the 1850s. But we should not excuse his actions.

We need to recognize that putting trust in government officials without doing research of our own is a dangerous thing.

I have always said it, Ron Paul is just another scum politician ..

And this has proven that ..

But of course the blind sheep that support this idiot will make any nonsense excuse ....

Unbelievable .. Hypocrisy at its best ..

.. And they call Obama supporters sheep ... they should take a good look in the mirror ..

Yeah, excusing his actions is wrong.

But the difference between Ron Paul supporters and Obama supporters is that they recognize when their man does wrong.

You floor me.

Still pushing the big government agenda I see.

Still want that Euro-socialism here in America? Move to the EU, they have exactly what you want. Now if there was a country, with a conservative government with liberal social values and a gold based monetary system somewhere in the world, I would be there in a second.

Why have you not moved?

You know I'm a fierce Ron Paul supporter and operate a blog that promotes his ideals constantly.

I am the first one in here to let you know when he does wrong.

Obama, McCain, Bush, and other supporters would never create a post openly pointing out when their candidate lies or back-stabs them.

They go along with it like everything is fine.

Exactly what you just said. I saw the title of the thread and said exactly how I felt on this.

Then we have the devout Dem and Repub backers making excuses instead of saying they disagree with the stance of their party or the politician.

It is like they are backing a frelling sport team or something.

Keep on em mnemeth, maybe we can wake some of the insane from their brainwashing.

Hold these politician's feet to the fire.

At least he tells the guy straight why he did it. It's because he made an agreement, probably because he doesn't want to lose his seat in Financial Services where he is able to question Bernanke and the Fed. Attorney.

You really think he wants a Neo-Con to win over someone who campaigned for him?

BTW he never asked anyone to go door to door for him. He always said if you do that it's your choice. That was a smart thing to say, otherwise you'd have people expecting him to take them to lunch for flying blimps he never asked for and such.

Ron Paul isn't going to save us, I agree... Think I will lose my respect over him for this? Not going to happen - He had support thrown at him that he never expected, money, everything... People respect Ron Paul for different reasons than people support Obama.

They support Obama because they feel he empowers them and will make their lives better. Karma in this case is a B... Ron Paul has a way of not making those sorts of promises, ever notice that? Obama will always be remembered as a huge disappointment because he set the expectations so high.

(Edit: On the other hand you have Ron Paul who had to wait 20 years thanklessly for his message to begin to really spread, Obama is an overnight success with very little substance)

you are so full of hate,,,,

is it not ron paul's own supporters who are calling him out,,,, and also calling out rand paul on afghanistan,,,,

how many democrats are crying how wrong parts of health care are,,,, and in the end they'll all vote for it,,,, not one will take a stand

where's the change??? he's bush lite,,,, you really thought he would change anything

you seem hateful at the fact your own party is corrupt,,,, as well as the gop,,,, and that others are taking a stand and trudging a new path

that's a heavy burden your carrying

i've seen your nasty,,,,,seemingly hatefilled reply in 10 threads or so now,,,, that must suck to carry that weight

is it the naivety you had that obama was gonna be a different kind of politician that has you spitting venom,,,, that you fell for his line of BS???

The mere fact Ron Paul stuck with the Republican party over all these years should have been evident enough. Ron Paul has said many things that have contradicted his party, and alot of the time he was the only man who had the balls to say it, but then again it doesnt change the fact that he had stuck with the party that had always been part of the issue

I agree with Avenginggecko that Ron Paul is probably just "playing the part" to bring in a segment of the population to the Republican party and his done a good job at that. Look at the loyal following and hardly anybody here questions the man. While alot of things his said were true, the fact of the matter is, regardless of the excuses, his stuck with the Republican party and has supported directly or indirectly other Republican candidates. This is why I often sigh at Ron Paulers when they criticize other voters as "being sheep for voting two party" when they themselves continue to do the same with Ron Paul.

If Ron Paul was as rebellious and different as he had argued he was, he would have remained independent, not gone for the "lesser two evils" as some put here. Ideals and values matter more than "convenience", unfortunately in Ron Pauls case, being part of the Republican party is a matter of convenience.

I understand its hard for many here to deal with the fact that he may be just another politician after all, but those are the facts. That doesnt mean that Ron Paul cant make an impact in the Republican party, but its looking grim, he continues to pander for convenience.

There are plenty of fresh candidates out there, not necessarily in washington DC as of yet. There should be a push for independents and third party now. I admit that many in the Democrats have dissappointed me here as well, and I have begun to realize part of the issue is the fact the two-party establishment has held power for too long now.

Have I swayed you at all from the darkside young Jedi?


SG, you did notice that many here point out Ron's problem here correct? And we are not either Repubs or Dems.

Welcome to the correct side young Jedi Master. Where there is no left/right, only rule of LAW.
