No.. of course not.
Two days ago he himself said he would not be endorsing Mitt. He isn't going to say " I am not endorsing him" and then change his mind and do it. Why would he endorse anyone when he hasn't dropped out of the race?

That's absurd.
They are both the same, why not cast your vote for the only non evil and have a voice even if it's drown out.

By voting for the lesser of two evils you are shrinking the strenght of the message that is a huge block of people voting for Paul and throwing away your vote completely. Just another lemming over the hill not standing out in the least.

Doubt it. But if he does .. then that'll make him just like the rest of the poltiicians.
I'd be really disappointed in him if he does ...

Ron Paul doesn't have to endorse Romeny, he is doing enough by not running third party. He's brought new members in and he's not going to vote split.

Romeny will win hook or crook, that's just how it is.

He wont do it. Has hasnt supported an establishment candidate since Reagan (from what i remember) and I dont think he'll change his mind. He is still running with the few delegates that he has and wants to go to tampa to influence to GOP. Rand made a mistake by prematurely endorsing Witt Romney. Ron has more integrity than that. he wont endorse mitt.

Do you have a link to where he stated this? Or did you hear him say it? I would be interested to see what he said.

It's called the Ron Paul Revolution for a reason! He could care less about coming to the republican table to galvanize the party, Rand on the other hand is a young politician with stars in his eyes so he sold out!

What is stupid, is not doing everything in one's power to keep Obama from another term. Our Country can't take another 4 years of handouts to half the population, funded by the financially slipping other half. And being expected to fund an ever bloating government.

JMOHO....Des


Romney=Obama

Tell me how I'm wrong, then consider why you're voting for Romney to oust Obama.

I bet you don't even like Romney.

I'm with you on this. If Ron Paul can't stand behind his beliefs, than he loses all support from me. Romney and Paul are black and white. Supporting Romney will be just like every other party candidate supporting the status quo. People supported Paul because he stuck to his guns and pointed out flaws in his own republican party. For him to support the same things he was critical about is really two faced. We have enough two-faced politicians that tow the party line. He loses all credibility with me if he utters just a word of support for Romney.

No matter what happens, I think it's safe to say that the Rand Paul endorsement of Mitt Romney has completely split up the liberty movement. We are witnessing this happen in this very thread (I won't name names) and it's a sad thing to watch.

There is NO way Rand Paul wasn't aware this would happen if he and the RP campaign staff went in this direction and endorsed Romney. That fact alone is what bothers me the most. This endorsement stands against EVERYTHING this movement has been about, not compromising, and not licking the boot of the establishment, and Rons supporters know it and live by it. For this reason (Rand single handedly tearing apart his fathers movement), on top of the fact that Rand Paul has an obvious establishment agenda, I will never support him and most definately not Romney.

As for Ron Paul? It doesn't matter if even HALF (which they won't) of the liberty movement goes along with Rands endorsement, or a future Ron Paul endorsement of Romney. If Ron doesn't turn this whole thing around soon, everything he has worked for will be lost. That is the sad reality of it.

My decision is made. At least Romney has experience in the Business sector of my Country. Obama is nothing more than a voice piece for an a agenda driven concept that would have us in as deep a hole as a lot of European Nations now.

I'm 61 years old. I've been on both sides of the counter in the work force. Owner and employee. I've never in my long years on this planet, seen such a dire and depressed economy as we have now. Obama for some reason thinks I should keep working until I'm 100 to help fund his socialist projects. Screw that!

Des


I find this position laughably funny, especially since the president basically controls 0 % of the economy,as witnessed by bailouts and several attempts by government to " fix" things. Government has no control. The banks control the money supply. Paul is the only candidate looking to change the foreign policy. The only thing the president is capable of physically doing, is being the commander and chief. The economy can not be run from the oval office.

As far as commander and chief goes, Obama has 10 x's the grasp of Romney and Paul 10x's the grasp of obama. Mitt Romney may be a successful business man, but he is undoubtedly unqualified to be president.

The problem is the lingering fascist state we are becoming and some think a big business, big government puppet is the way to go, LOL. You are all #ing idiots.

I vote Obama with all things being equal at our current state, mitt Romney should have a big goose egg. He has zero chance of winning

Love your post and I agree with you 100%. That said, what I do what in the White house is someone who can cut spending and try to spend the money responsible. There's a lot of money to deal with and it's going to take more than one person to responsible control it. It's gotta start from the top and then works it way down. Who knows, maybe one day we can have Gov't with little to no corruption? Pipe dreams, I know, sad isn't it?

I 100% agree. They have already lost me. I didn't blindly support Dr Paul at any means necessary, meaning I would do exactly what I'm told just because the Paul's say to. I supported Paul's movement and ideals. When it comes to falling in line with the GOP the Paul's can kiss my ass. They cheated at conventions and literally stole delegates. They can kiss my ass and if Ron Paul endorses Romney it tells me he was in on the entire chirade and he can go # himself too.

This.

This constantly makes me chuckle.

This constantly makes me chuckle because it's an example of the sort of Paul 'fan' who clearly knows nothing about Ron or Rand.

"Selling out'? Rand's decision to support Romney is TOTALLY CONSISTENT with his voting record and politics. He's not a young version of his dad. Never has been.

You're just an example of the sort of ron paul 'fan' who doesnt really even follow politics, and likely supports paul because of a few pet issues.

Rand Paul was on Glenn Beck today and he said that him and his father are backing Romney. He said that Romney is for Auditing the Fed and has said that several times. Rand even said that most of his supporters are with him on his decision and its only a few that are angry. Then Glenn compared those that were angry as the fringe "don't believe we landed on the moon" people. It looks like the right is trying to hi-jack the Liberty Movement like they did the Tea Party. Beck has been talking up the Libertarian movement the last couple weeks. Rand Paul will be the figure head I guess.

Let's trust some speculation posted by known ATS Ron Paul trolls?

or....


Trust someone that is closest to Ron Paul's heart?


In the words of his own wife, Carol Paul: "Ron has never changed in 55 years that I've been married to him, well, the 60 years that I've known him"

She also mentions she hasn't talked to Rand for a while and that she didn't know about the endorsement.

>Trusted sources say Ron didn't even know Rand was going to make the endorsement until 30 minutes before it happened.<


Or trust one of Ron Paul's oldest friends for decades?

Lew Rockwell: Ron Paul will NOT Endorse Mitt Romney







Those of you who are jumping ship probably never even understood WHY you were apart of this movement in the first place. The trolls are having a mighty good time knowing their posts are irritating this movement, but little do they know, this only strengthens our movement because it weeds out the weak ones that cannot stomach movements or even hardships like this.

Not sold out. Just that he knows how to look and sound like a politician.
It's something that his father never learned to do, which is why the party shuns him so badly.

If I had on a tin foil hat this morning, I'd say this was a perfectly played game of divide and conquer. You build an opposition based upon principles that won't be pushed through, and then divide it between the people who'll take a little and the mythical promise of gradual acceptance and those who won't compromise at all.

I spent a lot of years working politics, but one thing I know is a disillusioned person who is an activist rarely comes back after the initial disappointment. So apathy grows once more.

In the most generous interpretation, I know a lot of people who are Paul supporters who are within the party, who have taken up local positions and who do want to change things. There's truth in that. But for as much as it may be the people who are closest to him and most around him, I'm also pretty certain they represent the minority of his support.
