Ron Paul Campaign Declares War on GOP Establishment

I just received the following e-mail from John Tate, Ron Paul’s Campaign Manager:

“Last night you saw dueling examples of how much the establishment is scared of Ron Paul and his message of liberty.

Ron Paul will win the most delegates out of Maine.

In fact he will probably even win the “beauty contest” Straw Poll the media has already called for Mitt Romney – even before all the votes have been tallied.

HOW CAN THAT BE? you might be asking yourself.

Simple. The national political establishment and their pals in the national media will do ANYTHING to silence our message of liberty.

It’s up to you and me to stop them. So if you haven’t yet done so, please pledge to give as much as you can to Ron Paul’s February 14 Money Bomb.

You see, in Maine last night, you and I saw a perfect example of just how much the establishment fears Ron Paul.

In Washington County – where Ron Paul was incredibly strong – the caucus was delayed until next week just so the votes wouldn’t be reported by the national media today.

Of course, their excuse for the delay was “snow.”

That’s right. A prediction of 3-4 inches – that turned into nothing more than a dusting – was enough for a local GOP official to postpone the caucuses just so the results wouldn’t be reported tonight.

This is MAINE we’re talking about.

The GIRL SCOUTS had an event in Washington County that wasn’t canceled!

And just the votes of Washington County would have been enough to put us over the top.

This is an outrage. Perhaps you heard about it on the mainstream media news?

Probably not. In fact, if you were watching one major network, they cut off their telecast of Ron Paul’s speech right when he began mentioning the fact.

The truth is, there is no length to which the GOP establishment won’t go. There is nothing the mainstream media won’t do.

But they can’t stifle our message. And with your help, they will have to listen to it all the way to the GOP nominating convention in August.

Ron Paul told me this weekend – he is in it to stay and to WIN.

And we are bringing delegates with us to the fight. Lots of them.

In fact, while the national media continues to focus on Straw Polls, we’re racking up delegate after delegate…

…the folks who will ultimately decide who goes to Tampa, Florida to select our Republican nominee for President.

Are you with us??

If you are truly willing to keep standing and fighting beside Ron Paul until victory is ours. it will require a renewed commitment from every single supporter.

It will require attending your local caucus, convention and primary.

It will require doubling down on phone from home and volunteer efforts.

And it will require a massive Money Bomb this week of at least 5 Million dollars.

Going into Super Tuesday, Ron Paul has several tremendous opportunities to keep our momentum going.

But we must be able to count on you.

If you haven’t done so, please pledge to contribute to Ron Paul’s February 14 Money Bomb IMMEDIATELY.

For Liberty,

John Tate
Campaign Manager

  • Are you kidding?

    According to Obama he’s “created” 3 million jobs, and issued 3 million “guest worker” visas. These people brought their families, ten times as many people entered illegally. Product quality deteriorates, labor costs remain constant.

    Meanwhile, while Bill Gates campaigns for an unlimited number of worker visas, over 1/3 of long term unemployed Americans have 4 year degrees and better, and there has been a huge surge in completed suicide by Americans over 40. Right now fewer Americans under 25 have jobs and are developing critical experience than at any time since the US government started measuring employment.

    What illegal immigration has done to our infrastructure is appalling, yet the law openly encourages it and open discriminates against white people. Illegal Mexicans are #1, Orientals #2, Indians #3. These population bombs are displacing the middle class. Bill Gates lies.

    What are you going to do about it? I live in CA. Our lives depend on it. Now.

    This 3rd party/independent run stuff is just so much speculation and bullshit until the Doctor says otherwise. Eyes on the prize,people! We got the first win,the truth will out before super tuesday,the great man is going to give the GOP a nasty case of the truth. Try to get your local media on to the embarrassment Mitt must feel for having to rig the game to win in his backyard. It’s like learning 7 of his grandkids are voting for Ron Paul,and they’re the smart ones of the family! This “poll closed due to snowflake”horseshit needs to be called down,but spend a half hour on it and the next weeks on moving forward. This was too much shenanigans,too soon. The Party bigwigs and MSM are a hair away from full panic mode. Our hero’s tying them in knots and they’re running fresh out of ideas. Courage! We WON!

  • Thaddeus Kosciuszko

    Mr. Paul has long proven that his allegiance is to his ideas—individual rights, sound monetary policy and limited government—and not to the Republican Party.

    He has not degraded himself by making bad acquaintances; rather, he is endeavoring to change the gop with his principled and unwavering moral code of values.

    He will never give his soul to the Devil, just to win.

    Let’s do this!! I don’t want to have to dust off my “Don’t Blame Me, I Voted For Ron Paul” sticker!!

  • Jorge

    Ron Pauls campaigning about honesty and stand up for our principles, yet theyre getting screwed over by the same stablishment bs… Do something about Maine’s remaining 16%..,. Make it count!!!!!

  • French Canadian

    I’ll say it again:
    Ron Paul is America’s last hope!

    I could even add:
    Ron Paul is the World’s last hope.

    If he doesn’t win, we will all be doomed.

    • Thaddeus Kosciuszko

      Come on down…!

      We could use your help. 🙂

    Ron Paul better support Mitt maybe he can be US TREASURY ..even media always 95 % negative about Mitt they love real Pope liberal Big govt santorum whos had wife affair with abrotion doctor 40 years older than her because obama will eaten him alive ,TIME PAUL ATTACK SANTORUM about his record .
    SANTORUM IS THE MOST LIBERAL FISCAL RECORD ..Another lying politician he even lied on where he lived and was drawing 40 grand for schooling on his children. that Santorum voted to raise the nation’s debt limit five times, that Santorum voted against “right to work” laws, that he voted for No Child Left Behind, and that he voted for the Medicare Prescription Drug benefit.Research shows that all four substantive allegations against Santorum are true. Santorum did indeed vote to raise the debt limit five times. (Source: Senate Roll Call Vote #54, 2006; Senate Roll Call Vote #213, 2004; Senate Roll Call Vote #202, 2003; Senate Roll Call Vote #148, 2002; Senate Roll Call Vote #209. 1997)SANTORUM BIG GOVT LIBERAL.

  • Roorbeer1970

    I’m so tired of the Big Media now just talking About 2 Runners now.There Flip Flop, Too. Can’t people see that Santorum has tantrums, shakes his head, has no patience, unless he’s doing all the talking & Butting in at the Debates.Think they End those Debates. We all are sick of their childishness. We all have remember & who Said to save us 1 trillion dollars, not the other 3 but Ron Paul. It’s like they Think it’s a Game show on TV.Ron Paul is the Only 1 with any Sense, & Calm.They aren’t even checking Sant. out, just Voting for a new name.He thinks he’s going to go to Az. & Mi.& win them over. Think Not. He’s thinks, he another know it all. He’s the most religious one. Well, Ron Paul has 2 Brothers who are Minister’s. One lives in West Mi. We all know Big money backing their favorites. If we all can’t stand up, Say we won’t stand for this mess were in & Vote for Freedom, Liberty & a Big change.Then we will just be alot worse off.They are afraid of Ron Paul, B/C, he’s the only 1 of them that 100% right!

  • Why not stick around and stay in the debates and harrass them a little. Then when the primary is over go 3rd party. Or let Rand run in ’16? If they are determined to give us Romney vs. Obama, call them out on their hypocrisy and speak to the people. Run ads to the people, and make this movement to big to ignore… Remember the GOP is only half of the vote. Broaden the message and appeal to the whole country in ads and speak past the media. It worked for Reagan and he got two terms.

    • Edward Stephens

      The Revolution will continue to prosper long after this election. Paul in ’12, Paul in ’16. Stability in world food and energy prices, less famine, zero wars, ALL of it is within our grasp. Onward ho!

  • Speaking as someone who has supported Dr Paul, I think he should get out of the Primaries and publicly endorse Governor Gary Johnson who is vying for the LP nomination.

    Yes I know third parties have in the past had very little traction. However if you want to change the system better to have a Libertarian Party candidate in the Presidential debates. Johnson has more executive experience than Romney and Obama combined. He needs 15% in the polls to get into the debates, I believe now is the time for Dr Paul to throw his weight behind Johnson and try and change the system.

    Not looking to start a big war on here, just stating that there is a viable option for all of us who love liberty and freedom.

    • Libertarian777

      firstly, Ron Paul ran as the libertarian candidate back in 1988 i think it was, and hardly got anywhere.

      secondly, contrary to what the MSM is reporting Ron Paul has a significant number of delegates and has a real chance at getting the GOP nomination, so why throw it all away to support Gary Johnson. Next you’re going to say we should all support Bill Still.

      • Edward Stephens

        Or Nader.

  • Adam

    I would like both the dems and repubs to loose all power and credability in congress. the people and the constitution party or libertarians need to take over.

    • Thaddeus Kosciuszko

      If you tell them to turn off the TV, and look at the yeas and nays, they will see credibility.

  • freedom

    I will donate but I think that Ron Paul should leave the GOP, this is going too far, rigged caucuses, rigged primaries, biased media, etc… The US is no better now than Cuba or the communist Russia. So sad.

    Go on Paul, if you leave the GOP, you migh well win the election or at least fuck these bastards.

    To the fellow Liberty lover “Chuck Ashley”, all is not lost my friend. The fight won’t be easy, but it is one worth fighting for. 2012 is the year for the good guys, don’t worry. I’d like for you to experience a small film, I watched over the weekend titled THE HUMAN HISTORY MOVIE. It’s available here,

    It is another example of information that is being suppressed. There is a deliberate reason why the message of Liberty, and Freedom, is purposefully ignored. It’s beyond politics, beyond religion, beyond freemasonry/occult/illuminati, beyond the New World Order. We have a duty to speak truth, and be guided by our own personal truths. The founders of this nation knew this, and did their best to craft the law of the land to thwart the unfortunate events that are all too prevalent today. You are being lied to, now lets do something about it. In whatever way we can, we must help one another. I think Martin Luther King said it best, “We have a moral obligation, to disobey unjust laws, because non-cooperation with evil is just as much a moral obligation as cooperation with good.”

    Watch the film, it may be a bit “cosmic”, and it may not even be true, but you will have to decide that for yourself.

    again, here it is:

  • Michael

    Chuck, and everyone else– do not think that just because the GOP will try to stomp out Dr. Paul any chance they can. This is not hardly a waste. If he were to get out of the GOP now that would be the dumbest move of all time because that is perfect reason for them to really ignore him. At least with the GOP they HAVE to acknowledge him for quite a while. Look at how much press other Presidential candidates are getting– NONE! This is why Mr. Paul needs to stay where he is and soak up the air waves so that, if he does need to switch, everyone will already be familiar with him and his message. We WILL spoil an election and if we all continue to support Ron Paul, no matter what, and keep getting people over to our side, he can win in a third party by getting more votes than Obama OR the GOP nominee (Romney, Obama Jr. who doesn’t stand a snowball’s chance in hell against Obama).

    Just do not give up and work a little harder now! We can do this 🙂

  • I wish the MoneyBomb was on the 16th! Unfortunately, I am broke until then.
    We stand beside you, Ron Paul, you have my vote!

  • Great to hear we’re fighting the good fight!

  • chuck ashley

    Hi John,
    While my wife & I are ARDENT Ron Paul supporters we’ve seen from Iowa to Nevada & my home state Mn & now Maine it has become Patently Obvious that the Nazi Party of America aka Republican Party will NEVER let Ron Paul win Anything Anytime! The will lie,cheat & steal their way to Tampa! While Ron Paul has amassed delegates the GOP will just wave their collective magic wands & presto chango the nominee will have ALL the delegates needed to win & Ron Paul & his supporters will be LOCKED OUT of the convention as we were in08-Bank on it! Ron Paul needs to Bolt from the GOP NOW! To continue to waste valuable money & time in this corrupt system is a Fools Errand, leave the GOP in the dust as they do NOT want us anyway & we don’t want Them or their Fascist system! If you are hoping to have Ron Paul get a keynote address in Tampa again you are fooling yourselves as even if they were to agree to it in some kind of delegate deal they will get the MSM to cut the feed or pre-empt him either way they Will NEVER let the message of Liberty to be heard again as it is Anathema to them! Ron Paul preaches Liberty & they want Tyranny & thus it is Madness & Folly to be playing within their Rigged Casino-esque Primary/Caucus game system!
    Ron Paul must leave the GOP now & take his money & supporters with him!

    • ScottyB123

      Chuck, the frustration you feel is palatable, we all feel it. Dr. Paul wouldn’t have gotten as far has he has without the GOP. The two party system has become flawed and corrupt, but it’s what we’ve got to work with…for now. Dr. Paul need to hang in there just a bit longer, until he can rack up enough delegates to force a brokered convention which is becoming more likely every day. Then we can break it off in the GOP the right way!

    • Are you kidding?

      They aren’t all Nazis. The same people who infiltrated the RNC infiltrated the DNC, so no matter who’s on top they warp the process to suit their agenda, which is definitely anti-American. I too think his affiliation with the GOP is a liability, and I hate to think I would vote for him over Obama, just to run those traitors out and get smacked again with the right hand of terrorists who turned 9/11 into a global crisis. Whether he’s in the GOP or not he’s going to have to resolve these organized criminals. It would help if he’s got some allies.
      If we don’t get them out of our government, the next war is going to be right here. Blue helmets against civilians, just like Iraq. After 6 decades of anti-American propaganda worldwide, what nations do you imagine are going to assist us? They’re aren’t coming to help, they’re coming to carve us up for the global elite.

  • Heavy stuff! John Tate is a stand up guy. It’s about time somebody starts busting some chops.
