Ron Paul’s Victory

Clearly Ron Paul won tonight by coming in last. He had the most votes, but the Zionists have denied him his actual victory.

    “I’m sure any hanging chads will be counted for Ron Paul.”

    Now that they are mostly using electronic machines, I’ll assume they would be electric shocks, which would seem appropriate.

    McCain vs Romney. Erick, isn’t it time you decided which candidate to support ? There is life after Fred…. God, I wish Thompson were a better campaigner….

    Huckabee supporters were pissed about Mitt and McCain not even mentioning him!

    At least Rudy and Huckabee mentioned him.

    All Ron Paul supporters are invited to join the Huckabee Campaign ( if you want ) ! You will be welcomed with open arms!

    HA Erick!

    Rugby gotcha!

    hehehehehehehehehehe…….. forget the White House dinners…..

    Icarus – good idea putting the bankers in with gators….but then which party eats?

    So far Ron Paul has raised $3.7 million this month. McCain had to stop campaigning in Florida to hurry up to NY for a fund raiser.

    Ron Paul’s ideas have been around since the dawn of the REPUBLIC. We have him to remind us of them and exactly how badly the GOP has betrayed us all.

    The sound of collapsing financial markets will focus even greater attention on the fact that he has been right all along.

    The rest, especially McCain, don’t have a clue.

    So has syphallis, but I don’t think either are something I would recommend to fix this country’s problems.

    Ic –

    Hair of the dog that bit you is an equally ancient remedy, but do the two disastrous parties HAVE TO try it when I am trying to retire?

    BTW, “Sy – Phallis” is really a super duper Freudian slip.

  8. StevePerkins says:

    Funny that Paul isn’t worth mentioning when he’s in double-digits, beating Guiliani and Thompson in votes, and leading the front-runners in fundraising… but DOES warrant a post when he finally places last in some state. Even more funny that the one-note you keep coming up with to trumpet is that some anti-Semite wackos spammed your other silly echo-chamber of a blog.

    Still, at the end of the day, at least WE’RE endorsing a candidate who’s actually (gasp!) in the race. I’m sure that vote for Fred next week will really send a message, or something.

    Steve,

    You really hit the mark. I think Ron Paul as a candidate would have meant a 30% vote total in the General Election, but at least he worked for the nomination, rather than Lazy Fred who couldn’t even muster the energy to anounce properly, much less campaign.

    Erick and his friends at Redstate made every excuse for his feigned indecision and hailed the brilliance of his every mistake until the ground collapsed beneath them and it could no longer be denied. Just because you can read a script that makes you sound like Reagan II, doesn’t make you the Gipper.

    People voting for Fred in the GA primary will at least not have their poor judgement influence the outcome, they won’t even be counted.

    Erik
    At least my guy is still there. I went to the Spaulding Gop meeting a couple of weeks ago. We showed up witha bunch of Paul supporters. We were about 60% of the people at the meeting. The guy in charge was excited that so many people had come to a GOP meeting he had never had that many people show up before. Last night the Griffin Ron Paul campaigneers showed up and stuffed letters and made phone calls to get out the vote. Fred’s people were at home watching reruns of Law and Order and dreaming of watch could have been , what should a been, while we continue to raise money, run tv ads here in Georgia and put out thousands of yard signs and look at all the billboards and newspaper ads the grassroots supporters have paid for.
    But Erik you are not bitter are you 🙂

    This truly is entertaining. Ron Paul supporters making fun of someone for backing a candidate who has no chance of winning…can anyone else see the irony?

    If you had to have a candidate with a serious shot at winning in order to participate in political discussion… then the entire Republican Party would have to shut up for the next 4 years. For the sake of keeping things interesting, I say we ignore that requirement if it ever existed.

  13. Jace Walden says:

    The difference between a Ron Paul supporter and a Fred Thompson supporter is that going into this election we knew our candidate had no shot of winning. Fred Thompson supporters didn’t.

    It’s kind of funny to see the Hunter supporters, the Thompson supporters, and soon the Giuliani supports all having to jump ship and find the next best “conservative choice hands down”, because their first choices turned out to be flops.

    Any time you guys are ready to relent, I have a tin foil hat waiting for you!

  14. Bill Simon says:

    Jace,

    Without “hope”, a man has nothing. We hoped Fred would light a fire under himself.

    I know, for you, “hope” is a right-brain construct, and has no place in politics.

  15. IndyInjun says:

    Bill S.

    According to the old Tom Jones it without LOVE one has nothing at all.

    It is not a stretch to say that a great many Ron Paul supporters love the man while recognizing his flaws.

    Right now the folks you and I hoped would win are SOL, but the love of Dr. Paul means that he will be a growing influence on politics in this country. He might still be on the losing end of a lot of 400 – 3 votes, but he will no longer labor in obscurity.

    How many others in this race would thousands be willing to die for?

  16. jsm says:

    Number of Paul delegates: 6
    Number of Thompson delegates: 0 (zero)

    Actually, Thompson had 8 (eight) delegates before he left the race. So Paul has still yet to gain as many delegates as someone who is no longer running and has been called ‘lazy’ in this very thread. Boy, rugby really ‘got us’ didn’t he, Indy?

    So keep the ridicule coming, folks. I can laugh along. Seriously, though, I’m gonna stand and fight for every real conservative I can every time I can. I respect the views of Paul’s supporters. I just can’t swallow his foreign policy.

    Our entertainment-drunk society has no clue of the real consequences at stake in this election. I would venture to say that most people whooping and hollering at the campaign rallies know almost nothing about their candidate’s views and record past a few sound bytes. They just love the excitement. It will all be gone on January 21, 2009, and we’ll have to live with who we choose. I’m concerned already.

  17. IndyInjun says:

    jsm –

    I agree that RP’s total withdrawal from all things foreign is unrealistic given our 70% dependence on imported oil. However, the financial situation will necessitate large scale reduction in military spending and large scale withdrawal, as Dr. Paul asserts.

    We will be forcibly weaned from our foreign addictions for imported oil and MONEY, but the process will be brutal.

  18. jsm says:

    Tonight’s debate should get even more interesting as fewer candidates are available to take the focus off Paul. I wish he would hammer Romney’s mandatory insurance plan. If anyone on the platform knows how the healthcare system works…

  19. GOPeach says:

    McCain’s the candidate of AMNESTY for ILLEGAL aliens.

    McCain supports embryonic stem-cell research.

    McCain has said “I would not support repeal of Roe vs. Wade”.

    McCain opposed the Bush tax cuts, and refuses to sign the “No New Taxes” pledge.

    McCain supports legislation that would increase taxes on energy.

    McCain was the ring-leader of the Senate “Gang of 14” , which kept the then Senate Republican leadership from ending the ability of Democrats to filibuster Bush’s judicial nominees.

    McCain upports legislation to grant due-process rights to terrorists.

    McCain sponsored the inept legislation which restricts free-speech rights of those involved
    in the political process, (the McCain/Feingold bill)

    McCain called evangelical-conservatives an “evil influence” on the Republican Party.

    McCain – member of the Keating 5 that caused a bipartisan scandal during the S&L meltdown.

    McCain had a recall election ran against him by the conservatives in Arizona.

    McCain blocked the investigation into whether Viet Nam and the Soviets were still holding over 600 of our missing POWs in 1990

  20. Jace Walden says:

    The way the mainstream media has just been ignoring Huckabee and Giuliani reminds of of those old Commercials with Jordan and Bird playing Basketball and shunning Charles Barkley.

    McCain: “Off the floor, off the backboard, nothing but net”

    Romney: “Oooh…Good one. Okay, off the wall, off the floor, off the backboard, nothing but net.”

    McCain: “Hey, Mitt”

    Romney: “Yeah, John?”

    McCain: “Who the hell is this Mike Huckabee guy?”

    Romney: “I dunno. Never heard of him”

    McCain: “Apparently he did something good in Iowa and has never been heard from since”

    Romney: “I dunno. Like I said, I’ve never heard of him”

    McCain: “Just wondering…alright, off the door handle, off the floor, off the wall, off the back—”

    Giuliani: “Hey guys, can I play?”

    McCain & Romney: “No.”

  21. Rick Day says:

    Last night, over 60,000 people stood up and asked for an end to the runaway violation of our liberties. But contrary to the impression you may be getting from the mainstream media, no national delegates have yet been won in Florida. Those delegates will only be awarded between February 6 and April 30 at delegate selection caucuses, and many of those delegates will be supporters of Dr. Paul.

    This from the Ron Paul campaign.

    True or false?

    Discuss.

    I’ve already produced such a video, Bill. You can find it at finer stores everywhere… right in between the “Hotties for Huckabee” calendars and the “Girls Gone Wild for McCain and Romney” videos.
