Rand Paul: Why I Endorsed Romney

798 Responses




Rand Paul appeared on the Peter Schiff Show today to explain why he endorsed Mitt Romney, how he came to respect many of his fellow senators even though he doesn’t agree with them on all the issues, and what he is doing to advance the cause of liberty.

Later, Rand Paul joined Daily Paul Radio with Kurt Wallace to discuss his endorsement of Mitt Romney and to answer the questions submitted by the Daily Paul community.

    Throw back at Rand Paul ten times more extremely. He doesn't have the real thing inside him.

    Oh, my Obama shrine? Well it's going pretty good so far but tbh I'm just not diggin that the slaves used silver to make his life size replica cause I told those idiots to our budget was low, and now I'm broke with a replica that looks too white!!! P.S: I never used the word 'retarded' in the comment you replied to; I'm not white, I'm from Iran; I voted for Ron Paul in the AZ primaries (though guilty of voting for Obama in 2008); Even Ron Paul isn't running for president anymore. I'm pro-liberty.

    Hey you're right. There R 'rules' that U must betray your own people & help the bankster jews ram America down the drain, & if U don't follow those 'rules', U will have 2 go in the penalty box & lose some game points ~ oh boo hoo. I guess we'll all have 2 go along with the 'rules' then & help Obama & Romney ram America down the toilet =) YAY! It's OK, 'cuz there R 'rules' ROFL!!

    Go on with your suicide rants, troll.

    Neither Rand Paul nor his father Ron Paul make the rules that they have to abide by in the political arena. They only follow the rules so that they can hopefully stay in the game long enough to achieve their goals. Had Rand not come out in support of Romney, if & when Rand ever wanted to run for president himself...they would have surely said no & not supported his nomination because he didn't support theirs in the past. Sorry, but I never heard of George Galloway. Thanks for commenting back~: )

    Rand Paul supports Romney because he is an evil person, a scammer, like Romney. That's reality, & his father is not much better. They only TALK about freedom & such. It's just a baby sitting act, like that George Galloway guy who rants how evil NATO is all day, then comes out in support of the destruction of Syria & murder of it's leaders.

    (O_o) Ron Paul made a "Do or Die" bit for the 2012 presidency & didn't want his followers thinking even for 1 second that he was just going to drop out at the last minute & support someone else. He backed himself into a corner to where he couldn't back anyone, so he did the next best thing by telling his son that there wasn't any chance of his winning it, knowing that he would make the right move for them both, he could keep his word & stay in political favor with his party...checkmate! : )

    You're a coward, sir. The reason we supported your father with our heart, soul, money and at the cost of losing friends- was BECAUSE he did not play with words to justify any corrupt behavior and he stayed pure. What you're doing is assimilating into the life of a politician, you do not earn our trust, and you will NEVER have our trust. I don't care about your record, Rand, you FAILED! You didnt have to endorse Mitt Romney

    Rand Paul lost all his influence when he endorsed Romney. Both parties have been concerned about both Pauls the past few years because their popularity has grown the past few years. But now Ron Paul retires and Rand Paul loses many or most of his strongest supporters. By losing his most loyal and most vocal supporters, Rand Paul loses the backbone that worried the 2 parties. Rand Paul worries neither party now and lost all his influence.

    What Rand is indirectly saying is he's looking to influence Romney into moving towards the liberty movement. I think its a great idea!!! I don't trust Romney but anything Rand and others can do to set themselves up for bigger successes in the house, I support it. The best thing about voting to get Obama out is we have chance to influence Romney into actually doing the right thing. Obama will never budge, Romney will.

    Honestly, given the amount of retarded rhetoric I've been seeing from self-proclaimed RP supporters about Rand Paul endorsing Mitt Romney, I was honestly thinking I need to move the hell out of America. You just gave me hope Mr. Plumber Joe ^^

    There are more likes because people actually know the meaning behind the endorsement. I was angry at first then I found the truth. Do yourself a favor and ACTUALLY watch and listen to the video..

    Maybe Rand is trying to infiltrate the Romney campaign?
    Maybe he's trying to give the Republican Party one last chance?

    Rand endorses Romney's campaign - does that mean he's committed to voting for him?

    I am very diappoited that here are not as many dislikes as the endorsement itselft, what the hell. How can you positively vode this? There is no explaination it's a bad move and i really really hope he suffers from it. I am sorry for ron paul, and he should be very angry with his son, its a sab in the back! No vague wannabe explaination will change that.

    (O_o) Shucks, I'm no wiz kid when it comes to politics, more like a Plumber Joe, but even I understand why Senator Rand Paul came out in support of the ex-governor of Massachusetts bid for the 2012 presidency. As long as you know & abide by the rules, you can play the political game. We can all stand around holding hands while singing Kumbaya & have a good cry about it, or we can put on a stiff upper lip & reposition our game pieces in preparation for our next BIG move in 2016!~: )

    I'm not buying this scripted speech...romney is a traitor to the constitution, period, and supporting him is just passing the torch from obama, with the same ideals.Ron Paul2012

    Whos says Rand trusts romney? Rand trys to do things according to the rules even if the other side is cheating.. but like he said we have a lot of liberty lovers as delegates right now so if Ron Paul does not get the nomination we can still strongly influence the platform Romney runs on but lol i doubt he will follow..point is everyone does not need to get soooo butt hurt over this endorsement, he had his reasons and he also has a position to hold among a large grp of corruption. thats tough

    Rand and Ron are two different people in the end and just because Rand endorsed who he believes to be the republican nominee like he said he was going to do doesnt mean he turned his back on his father who he has obviously helped a lot and like i said b4 i am a ron paul supporter to the end but i was ticked when i heard the endorsement but i didnt just shut out any of the reasons why just so i could hate the man for it. I took the time to find vids like this to help understand why Rand did this.
