The Ron and Rand Paul dog-and-pony Show

Attention, all Ron Paul supporters.
Did you get the news?
On Wednesday, June 6, Congressman Ron Paul gave up the race when he admitted he could not be the GOP presidential nominee given his delegate count. A day later, late Thursday night, Ron Paul’s son, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), endorsed Mitt Romney for president!

Rand (l) and Ron (r) Paul

Anthony Migchels of HenryMakow.com, June 10, 2012, calls it “The Ron & Rand Paul Betrayal”. Here are excerpts:
Rand Paul endorses Mitt Romney last Friday, just days after Romney was anointed at the Bilderberg Conference, elitists who started  financing Ron Paul with millions a few months ago.
The backlash among the libertarian community is intense.
Libertarian leaders all over the place are denouncing him. Adam Kokesh is clearly hurting badly here. On Prison Planet, arguably the most influential pro Paul outlet, the headlines are all about Rand Paul’s betrayal. Mike Adams still cannot believe it and wonders if Paul Jr. is getting in to demolish the system from the inside. This YouTube video asks its viewers to vote to show how they feel and 90% dislike the news. Rand Paul’s Facebook page is being inundated with messages of thousands of disgruntled supporters.
It’s so bad one wonders whether the Pauls have miscalculated. And let there be no doubt, they have been calculating. Even to an outsider like myself, who never cared for either one, it looks like the most cynical, blatant and utterly ruthless sell out ever.

Consider this.
In March Time Magazine quoted a Ron Paul adviser as saying, ‘If you’re talking about putting Rand on the ticket, of course that would be worth delivering our people to Romney’. (go to 3:40 for the quote).
Lew Rockwell has declared that the whole Paul campaign was never about winning. I wonder what millions of his followers (and donors)  think about that?
According to Rockwell, it was all about educating people on the wonders of Austrian Economics, not about winning elections. This probably explains why Paul Sr. never ran as an independent, but preferred losing primaries.
After working for years on Paul’s campaign, Rockwell is now saying one shouldn’t vote and shouldn’t be involved in partisan politics. Now, how disingenuous is that?

I supported Ron Paul and this situation makes me sick to my stomach. I still won’t vote for Romney, not that it makes any difference. My state ALWAYS goes for the Democrat in presidential campaigns.

There’s hope here LTG…I read yesterday that even Oregon might be swinging away from Skippy! I know it’s a longshot in our state yet one can only hope…
At least we’ll hopefully get a repub as our gov!

lowtechgrannie, I cannot tell you who to vote for but a conservative nonvoter is a vote FOR Mr. Soetero. Every vote matters.

Not in my state. Even the Republicans are Democrat-lite.

You cannot look to evil people to do good things. You cannot look to an evil political system and then expect something good. You cannot look at bad religion and expect anything good. Once they are under oath, they will always gravitate toward evil; evil will not divide against itself. The Tea Party folks got punked by Marco Rubio and Rand Paul. In fact, most “Paytriots” are back-stabbing bastards. They are like that because the political and religious systems are just plain evil. If you don’t believe me, all you have to do is to look at it for what… Read more »

Hah…knocked down and bitch-slapped by reality/betrayal once
more. That’ll teach me to be too much a part of this world (as in
being in the world but not part of this world) The GOP will have
to lose this one without me…I couldn’t in good conscience vote
for a mexican-american NWO flip-flopper than I could for mcCaine,
not that My vote isn’t token where I live anyway….it’s summer and
I’m putting the boat in and going for a sail.

I am giving Rand Paul a pass on this one. I don’t like some of Mittens RINOmney’s policies and certain past actions as governor any more than any other true conservative, but we didn’t get a true conservative to run against the Dear Ruler, so we have to play the hand we are dealt. I know I have often said, “No more RINOs!,” but we no-longer have the luxury of waiting until 2016 and hope we finally get a true conservative candidate. Romney has his faults, but unlike the Dear Ruler, one of those faults isn’t that he hates America.… Read more »

Come on…I’ve heard this excuse all my life. I keep waiting, and waiting, for a good leader and I’m 65 years old and I don’t have very many years left to watch this nonsense. If you really love God, your family, and your friends and neighbors, do not vote for any of these knuckleheads. Now is the time to man up and tell them to shove it. They can take their communist government and stick it where the sun don’t shine. Don’t vote, because if you do, then you are a part of the problem. Mitt the Magic underwear…a man… Read more »

Doing the same thing over and over again and getting the same results is just plain insanity. This crap has been done for years and years. I’m thinking you’d be sick of it by now. But no, you must like getting screwed like that. You must like being lied to 24/7. You must like your over 50% tax rate from your “income.”. So you go out and vote for Mitt the Magic Underwear; someone who thinks he can be a god. Wow! Defeatism isn’t the point. The political system is crooked and it will never work under these circumstances. It’s… Read more »

Dang Steve its been a while since I heard you pick up the “stick of truth” and use it on someone. Seriously though your right there are to many “my guy did not when so I’m staying home” attitude these days. Hell my guy (and gal) for that matter did not win but I sure as hell is not “staying home”. We have a choice now whether we like it or not between the “witch” or the “devil”. I understand that everyone has a right to vote or not to I GET IT! but to stay home and allow this… Read more »

Doc, First of all, when you register to vote, you have to swear or affirm under the penalty of perjury This puts the whole process on the darkside as God has instructed mankind not to swear any oaths. That’s number one. https://verydumbgovernment.blogspot.com/2010/02/stop-swearing-oaths.html So, let’s assume you registered to vote, so now you’re on the darkside. How are you going to get anything good out of it. Most of us want good things to be in our lives, but our participation in such a process is an exercise in religious idolatry. The whole political and legal process is idolatry. How does… Read more »

Ross Perot did that way back when and they threatened his family. The problem is that everyone sits back and doesn’t help. When the fox gets one of the sheeple, they just go bababa….. It really is pathetic.

You must be a communist. Nazi? Oh, you must be a mind numbed statist.
Your manners need a little work. Neither one of us said anything offensive, just calling it the way it is, if you can’t observe reality for what it is then you’ll flounder in your own delusion.
People like you would watch your friends and family be raped by the feds, and then expect everyone to sing the Star Spangled Banner.

Bravo to Dr. Eowyn and Steve! I have read so much idiotic, illogical, nonsensical garbage from these people that it makes me sick. If you are so stupid so as not to vote, then you are a true and unadulterated stupid idiot! As a matter of fact, with that a priori position of not voting, you have lost your right to bitch and complain. Grow up and be men!
