He won't have the whole place cheering for him, unless he decides to no talk about foreign policy at all.

There isn't a candidate alive that will have the whole place cheering for him, so what's your point?

If Paul spoke at the convention (which the RNC would never dare allow) he would have the vast majority on their feet cheering. More than any other politician could hope for.

Why don't you just admit that you were absolutely terrified at the thought of Ron Paul being the nominee because he would have made mincemeat out of your man Barry? You've made that quite obvious by the fact that your only purpose here on ATS is to troll the Paul threads.

“Asked if this is a dropout, Paul’s campaign manager Jesse Benton said ‘Absolutely not! We are focusing our efforts squarely on winning delegates and party leadership positions at state conventions.”

It shows he wasn't serious in the first place. Just like last time, Paul bails on all his supporters. He could just as well have kept campaigning for delegates in states where they have not yet been chosen. If we were to believe the Paul supporters, "this election is much closer than you can possibly imagine."


What happened to all those "unbound" stealth delegates?

What happened to "Ron Paul math"?

What happened to all the Paul Bots calling the rest of us idiots and delusional for pointing out the obvious?

Here ya go, Paul Guys. After all your hard work your Great Leader has abandoned you.

Ron Paul didn't abandon anyone, it's actually less sensational than that. He ran out of money.

Regardless, I'm still voting for Ron Paul.

How the hell did he run out of money when you sheep keep on providing him with heaps? Don't you remember how he had $20 million, then restarted his money donation and asked for more? He doesn't want to be president quite clearly.

Dear Outkast Searcher,

I hope my post finds you well, but when I saw this pic on my facebook I immediately thought of you and had to post it. So here is to you friend!

I wish more Ron Paul supporters lived in reality. It discredits his image.....

Oh my, how people jump on something like this.
I really like Ron Paul, but am not as strong a supporter as some on this board. Yet, I can still see the forest from the trees here though. Or rather "I'm not wasting more money on this" from "I don't want to compete anymore". It's reasons like this that I don't think he will win. Not because he's unelectable, but because people are so easily disheartened about his chances. Seems like so many are on the edge of their seats, waiting for that "I KNEW it was to good to be true!" moment. I seriously worry for the world to come, but what more to do than deal with it, one elected douche US president after another. Hopefully the world will survive it.

If I'm not mistaken, he was asking for somewhere around 650 000 in more donations just last week on YouTube (not public video, but linked to privately to his supporters, link somewhere here from last few days). My guess is he just couldn't come up with enough. Costs money to be an underdog, no matter who you are

The real delegate count has Romney with only 322 actual delegates and Ron Paul with 120. There are over 1600 delegates still up for grabs at state conventions. It makes sense for Ron Paul to concentrate on the real race which is the delegate election process at the state convention level.

Alot can happen between now and August. The liberty movement isn't ending, just moving to the next phase. The media is trying desperately to discourage Ron Paul supporters, but in reality, the media is helping Ron Paul by lulling to sleep the Romney supporters, who now will forget to show up at state conventions because they think it's all a wrap.

This is like a chess game. Ron Paul looks like he just gave up one of his bishops, which he did. But he's really just setting up Mr. Bain Capital for checkmate.

And they wish you all lived in reality lol see how that the very least with Paul you get something different....all his non supporters usually bark about how bad his policies are for America. Well prove it...elect him see what happens. We having been doing it yall way for 50 or so years and they f***ed it up the whole way. Give Paul people a chance the worst they can do is finish off America instead of yall dragging this death out.

the premature celebrating here has been pretty funny, this is about the allocation of resources, bottom line is Dr.Paul is heading straight to the convention!

My thoughts exactly
In fact I think Ron is about to go for the jugular
They have underestimated him every step of the way and I believe hes far from finished

Ron Paul supporters should now unite with the OWS

Yeah sure, we should all join the Obama lovefest...

Only united can we take down the Banking Cartel.

I'm all for that, but according to OWS "taking down the banking cartel" apparently means socialism, which is what TPTB are already working towards. No thanks.

If you really knew anything about politics you would not be making such absurd comments.

You have no idea what socialism, communism, capitalism are. It is just the McCarthy propaganda you remember. Or you are really, really, really wealthy and I don't have to call you a moron. Which is it?

So you admit to being a socialist, or is it Communist? Good for you, and good luck with that.

And sorry buddy, but I know about politics all too well. I am too young to remember McCarthyism and old enough to have lived through the Cold War. I had a friend who defected from the Soviet Union, I had friends from other Communist countries also, and I learned more from them over the years than you can imagine, so don't pretend to know what I know.

Communism and Socialism by their very nature create an elitist minority that holds down the majority financially, socially, and intellectually. It's rife with abuses that would make Wall Street envious. Capitalism, even with all it's flaws, is still the best system we have. It encourages competition and innovation which is directly responsible for all the fancy gadgets that you depend on every day. There is no incentive to produce, let alone innovate in Socialism or Communism. If you knew anything about politics you'd know that. Why should you produce when everything you need will be provided by the government no matter what? Why should you innovate when any reward you reap will be taken by the government? The reality is that without the Capitalist system our technology would be stuck in the 1920's.

The bottom line is this: If you want Socialism, sit back, relax, and do nothing. Thanks to Obama we're halfway there and he and Romney are both working to achieve the same end.

I don't think that violence is going to solve anything at this point.

A peaceful protest won't either but you'll still get beaten up for it!

If you've been paying attention since 2001, our liberties have steadily eroded.

They could suspend the election and I wouldn't give a crap. I'm not voting for their spoon-fed yet bottom-feeding candidates.

I'm laughing hard at the things you're calling Obama because none of them fit him.

Where's the blame for Congress and the House? Both have done their share of selling-out the American people. If RP's supporters really want to make an impact, support candidates like RP at the state level that will help to take seats in the U.S House and U.S Senate.

The U.S House is chock full of traitors. I hope there are more sensible candidates waiting to take their places in November.

I know that Real Clear Politics has been questioned before on the subject of the delegate count by Fox's information spot, Reality Check, but here are the polling averages put up currently on the RCP website, on the subject of the race for the Republican nomination.

When one looks at numbers like this it is really hard to take Ron Paul's campaign seriously. His national numbers are good though, versus Obama (not shown here). Confusing situation.

These are the numbers, "in the Republican family".

Basically, what these numbers mean is that in an average of the results of quite a large number of polls, going back to January of last year, up to the present, Ron Paul is averaging 15% support among Republicans in the street as a choice for the Republican presidential nomination. He never gets much above 18% of "republican man in the street" support.

He is a man at odds with his party's grassroots.

Why does the bottom of the image say 2008, but everything else 2012? Did they forget to edit something or..? (sorry if this was mentioned already)

I thought the motto of ATS was "Deny Ignorance".

Yet we have a poster here who makes a patently FALSE statement that Ron Paul is ending 'active' campaigning and other chime in behind as if it is fact.

The Ron Paul campaign said no such thing. This headline is flat out dis/misinformation.

So when are we all going DENY the IGNORANCE which has been stated?

I just don't get it when I see fellow Americans bashing Ron Paul. Paul Is the only man who wants America to be what it was founded on. In my honest personal opinion, those that don't support Ron Paul's ideals are as Anti American as they come. But yeah I'm sure you love living in this Nanny police state,GMO,War,Torture,Death,Destruction,Anti-Freedom. Just wait until little modelesque Romney boy or Obama are in office - Kiss America goodbye' And I say that with confidence. Sad but true.

I am a little confused here. I know that all the MSM news is full of Horse hockey, but could someone explain something to me. When did CNN become like Fox news? Did they get bought by Murdoch in the middle of the night or something. They are fabricating stories and using opinions as facts just like FOX.

They try to swing stories to their liking and lie openly about Ron Paul and when caught they don't even deny it or even say anything about their false statements about him constantly. They have become just like FOX news now.

Disgraceful and sickening. These are not Americans as far as I am concerned.
