Ron Paul did not win.

This is the kind of commentary you expect from sore losers.


Its like what adults say to little kids when they loose a game football. Its just to try and stop them sobbing.
Did you those guys at the convention sobbing and crying like babies.

This story is to comfort those poor guys. Its to try and help them cope. Grown men sobbing and crying at a political convention because their guy got squashed like a little bug.


using your analogy...it would be like ron paul was getting close to the goal line, and the refs came out and moved the goal line back another 50 yards
using your analogy again...if poor and middle class "brown others" vote too much for the democrats, simply make it harder for them to vote at all.

Really?!?

What is it with you guyz and Ron Paul?

You do know he's the antichrist don't you? Well if you didn't then I guess I'm letting you in on a little secret.

Ron Paul didn't win #! He never will.

You all need to move on and forget about that old fool.

Face reality folks the man is never going to be president. Just out of curiosity who do you think his running mate would be Santa Claus or The Easter Bunny?


The fact he supports limited foreign intervention(not an israeli robot) and wants to audit the Federal Reserve means he is miles better than the typical republican. Try hundreds of miles better. Of course you could get the same package with the libertarians but..........


The man was really brave and brought the corruption of politics to center stage. I don't have to agree 100% with his platform to be ethical enough to say what I read and hear. Get a grip!

Its a wonder that Ron Paul hasn't had an accident yet.

The older I become, the more that I suspect that democracy in the West is just smoke and mirrors.


Agreed, it seems abit to "wonderful" that he havent had a public scandal... its not like they have a hard time framing people... If he wins the 2012 presidential election, he has been the bad guy all along... PUT URE MONEY ON IT!

Sorry I'm an outsider, so forgive my ignorance, but why didn't Ron Paul run as an Independent. There is clearly a demand in America for a 3rd party, but RP ran under the Republican banner. Surely he must of known he could never take on the GOP establishment and gain the nomination. He did however, manage to get a lot of independents who would not normally join the Republicans to join up just to back his cause. So I wonder who really won here.


He ran as a Libertarian already back in the 90's. There just is not enough support to win. That is the honest truth, at least for now unless there is more massive revolt countrywide. There are enough left leaning Paulites they don't care if Obama wins a second term, as long as they can "vote their conscience". Well goody for them, hope they have job security.

Sadly I think he conceded so his son Rand could peruse his political career. If Ron were to run third party and Mittens lost, the entire GOP establishment would blame the Paul camp for four more years of O'bomb'em, and Rand would be run right out of D.C. Unfortunately Rand is not the man his father is, as seen by his endorsement of Mittens, and his camp foolishly believes they can change the system from the inside, when it's really the system that is changing them. Long live the Ron Paul revolution. He has done more to aide the cause of freedom than any other politician in recent history. Hopefully there's someone else who is willing to carry the torch.


Maybe it just means he is not a carbon copy of his Dad, and since his Dad hasn't officially stopped his bid how can Rand skip out on the RNC? I think Rand is quite savvy myself.


Although some of his ardent supporters hold out the possibility of a miracle in Tampa, Rep. Paul has told them to behave there, and he reportedly has a friendly personal relationship with Romney.
So for both Pauls, it makes sense that at some point, Rand Paul was going to have to ease toward the party establishment regarding the presidential race – whether or not his father ever endorses Romney.

Here’s how Sen. Paul put his Romney endorsement on Fox News the other night: “You know, my first choice had always been my father. I campaigned for him when I was 11 years old. He's still my first pick. But you know, now that the nominating process is over, I'm happy to announce that I'm going to be supporting Governor Romney.”

It makes a lot of sense politically.

I do understand why people are asking this question though, as many Tea Partiers wanted to know why Sarah Palin kept endorsing McCain after the election.

I am not surprised at all that the delegates failed to get Ron Paul nominated from the floor. I will be writing Mr. Paul in even if he isn't a write in candidate. People tell me it would throw my vote away and get President Obama back in. Well I stopped voting for the duopoly when I voted for Ross Perot when he was running against Bill Clinton. Mine has always been a protest vote.

When the President says we didn't build that he is actually right. It is through the approval of government whether we get to do it or not and if he becomes President again it will just get worse. He also states that people don't have to work to get food stamps and welfare. In my opinion he is correct. The only people who should get that stuff is those that can not work at all. They are out there but this government don't want to take the time to weed out those that can work. I know people on food stamps and they've never met a social worker or been to the office or even know where the place is. That is sad. I don't know what Ron or Rand Paul would do about that but them being President would sure beat Mr. Romney or Mr. Obama

You can bet your bottom dollar it is

"None are more hopelessly enslaved, than those who falsely believe they are free."

~Tenth


this saying seems to mock the nieveta of the false believers! With what has happened to Ron Paul they can no longer deny that our country is anything but a democracy! Though they still will cling to their false feeling of security and inaction! Great saying by J. W. Goethe who lived at a time when USA was beginning to take shape!
Seems ironic to me; We escaped tyranny by fleeing the monarchy, coming here just to be tyrannized 2 centuries
later By a plutocracy with too many to blame!

As said by other posters, at the very least the clearly obvious corruption and farce pretending to be the RNC, should show the electorate beyond a shadow of doubt exactly what would be in store for themselves and the entire country of the USA should the fraudsters get their prefered liar/yes man elected...much more of the same, but with the stamp of approval from the voters, it would get much more brazen and shocking.

Ron Paul should still consider standing as an independent. If he decides that's not the way to go, he should poll the real Republicans in the party (not the con men and women who've hijacked the party control) and suggest a 'name change' for the Republican Party members to consider, effectively creating a third-party, but in really only reaffirming the founding principles and taking back control of the GOP...enter: The New Republican Party! The Grand New Party, for a Grander New America. The membership of the so-called GOP don't have to put up with electoral fraud, they simply join the New Republican Party, and vote for the man they really want - Ron Paul.

Whichever way the real Republicans and Ron Paul ultimately decide to go, it's obvious the Mafia has stolen control of the GOP. Actually that's not true, the Mafia wouldn't be so corrupt as to change the house rules if it looked like a gambler at one of their casinos was going to win a hand, the GOP do.

Folks, just remember that it's the "Liberal" Huffingtonpost that is publishing this.

The quality of reporting from the Left and Right is NOT equivalent.

It definitely isn't. See Faux News for an example.

Unfortunately I'm afraid you're right. I recently became aware of the fact that President Kennedy issued the executive order 11110 on June 4th, 1963. en.wikipedia.org...

This would of been a major blow to the Federal Reserve. Possibly eliminating it all together.
Not six months later was he assassinated. There is no doubt in mind the ones in control
of the FR had something to do with his murder.
Ron Paul and Kennedy share a lot of the same ideals.
Especially when it comes to their views on the Federal Reserve.
There is no way in hell the banking cartels that control the FR will ever hand over that power.
No matter what the costs are.
If you follow the FR's timeline you will see there were many strange things(I mean murder) that happened to people that opposed the FR.
TPTB are ruthless. Scary ruthless.

That the author was a Ron Paul fan isn't the point. That Huffington Post ran it is the point. It is nothing but another brick on the wall to split the Republican vote. Notice there is no write in campaigns against Obama? That was the point in un-spining the article.

I would have voted for Ron Paul, he had selected Peter Schiff for financial . I think Peter Schiff is the best around and he knows what has to be done to get this country on it's feet again. Now I am voting against Mitt Romney, Mitt just gives me a bad feeling.

It was obvious who was 'Chosen' at the very beginning, Mitt, he was all over the media constantly from day one.

Ron Paul won the intellectual vote, the vote of the people but he also proved that honesty and a good intentions do not fair well in politics, especially US politics where other facts are at play.

If Ron Paul can have a positive influence on a Romney office then that might be the lesser of two evils but as an outsider (from the UK) observing the US run for new leadership, it's quite obvious what games are being played and who is pulling the strings.

One good thing has come out of this, Ron Paul has proved that free thinking, intelligent and conscientious people do exist.

Great Post OP.

I think Ron Paul has done everyone a huge favor and most will miss it. Ron Paul knew he had no chance of getting the nomination on the Republican Ticket but he wanted to show all of us something.

He wanted to show all of us that your vote does "not" count. DemoCraps or RepubliRats both have no regard for their constituents. Rombama/Obamney = Same Turd Different Wrapper

Ron Paul has signaled to the Tea Party, Independents and truthfully to all, who will listen and see, that the 2nd Revolution is upon us. We Engage our Employees or we will be enslaved by them.

Ron will be known as the Father of the 2nd American Revolution.

I have had respect for ron paul ever since he stepped into the light . He has delivered lots of babies which makes him know how precious life is. It would have been nice for the US to have a truely good president, with REAL change to ALL there problems. But sadly that will never happen ,

Well the republicans did most of the ground work themselves.

Can someone tell me where else this article has been written? This is the only place I've heard about it. It's not on the news or in my newspaper. Don't get me wrong, I do believe this article and I also think the media will do anything they can to keep us in the dark.

Yeah it looks that way and that is bad news to the Republican moderates, who don't want a conservative in the white house, Ron Paul probably is going to run as a third party candidate and take away votes from from Mitt Romney. Allowing Obama to win, looks like rule changes shot the RNC in the foot
