    This is exactly why we are Ron Paul supporters. We don’t tuck our tail between our legs when things get tough and you shouldn’t have either. UNLESS WE STAND AND NOT WAIVER, NOTHING WILL EVER CHANGE. DON’T FALL BACK ASLEEP! KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN AND DON’T LOSE SIGHT OF OUR GOAL!

    It is not going to happen! Ron Paul supporters will not vote for Mitt Romney. If republicans want a republican president than they need to get the GOP to nominate Ron Paul. Bottom line is we will vote for Ron Paul, we are going to send our message to the world that we are through being dictated to.

    Their A10 pilots often shoot up innocent civilians and forces on their side. Clinton tried to change the gun laws and they really went after him.

    Sorry i was confusing you with another Brit. Ihave had friends killed in action and I respect guns but as I have pointed out to our American friends why are there blue on blue casualties by Americans on Brits in Iraq and Afghanistan but not the other way too gungho and lacking the discipline of our forces who are the best in the world. When you come from a hunting gun owning culture youre too trigger happy and the politicians are too crooked to change the culture because its their 2 amendment

    Sorry I was not a soldier. I would have joined the RAF if I could but my astigmatism and colour blindness precluded becoming a pilot. Gun control is a huge problem in the USA,. The latest carnage at the Batman film was carried out by a crazy who legally owned his gun and had stockpiled a huge pile of ammunition. I hate guns

    Watching the GB footie atm, but I lived in the US and one of my kids was boen there but it is a corrupt society and Im sorry if this upsets my US friends but I knew people who got away with serious crime because of their connections and it goes straight to the top. Why do you think they dont want any gun control. You and I were trained soldiers but I know people in Florida who clean their guns when they are drunk. They shoot racoons with semi automatic weapons and they are in the sheriffs dept

    I am very anti the extreme right wing, the right wing in America frighten me. They are so extreme and some of their ideas are bordering on the insane. CapserCee one of my principal targets thinks that the world is 6000 years old that Hitler was a socialist and that Britain is the most unhealthy country in the world. He also believes Obama is a Marxist. People like that need to be shown up for what he is.

    You know nothing. Libertarianism hasn’t gone anywhere because it’s trying to play by their rules, and yet is STILL gets blacked out. Why? Because a two party system is the easiest to manipulate. When you allow more parties to become mainstream, it becomes harder to control. Ron Paul’s method has attracted an increasing number of people who are becoming more educated on “how the world works”, and they’re making their voices heard. Soon, they won’t be able to silence it. That’s success in my book.

    Rand made good points as to why he did this. This endorsement of Romney is going to make the GOP and Republican Party trust him, thus giving him a clear shot at becoming president in 2016. The media won’t ignore Rand like Ron. Technically Ron still has a chance to get the nomination, but realistically it wont happen. I guarantee if Ron had endorsed McCain in 2008, then he would definitely be president at this point. But Ron has morals, and he knows that McCain was full of shit.

    It is easier for you or I to run for prime minister than an ordinary joe in the US to run for president. There has to be a representative of the Lords in the cabinet but he or she has no portfolio responsibility and is forbidden by tradition to influence policy.The Minister without portfolio is often a peer as well. In the US the Secretary of State is always appointed and never an elected individual. I am not party political. I have a degree in politics so my interest is constitutional.

    I agree you have some points remember I did say in theory anyone can run, Currently we have 2 ministers from the Lords. The Tories are anti reform and are dragging our country down the tubes.

    Damned sellout.
    To the people who think Rand is “playing the system” or using strategy to infiltrate the party with a liberty agenda, you’re a bunch of fools. Getting played for suckers yet again, conned into “voting against Obama,” or whoever the “other” candidate/party is. You should know better by now.

    We dont have a Constitution but we enact laws very quickly and can repeal them very quickly without the bagagge of 18th c thinking. “Anyone can run for President” laugh must be born in the USA not naturalized. You must be mega rich to fund a campaign. We very rarely appoint ministers from the Lords.The US system is not collaborative like ours hence filibustering. The US is a 2 party state. What other modern democracies us the US model? Philipines and some Latin American states. Our model well ?

    If he was running as a Libertarian it would be different. He could be himself. But, there’s a reason Libertarians haven’t went anywhere. The system has swept them under the rug. In this country, you have to use the system to beat the system. If you try to go up against it head on like Ron Paul, you get blacked out. The system if far too embedded to go up against head on. You’re the one who is confused. You don’t know how the world works.

    You’re putting words in my mouth. When it comes to being president, Ron Paul failed. When it comes to shining light on the revolution, he succeeded.

    The game is getting votes. Votes get you into office. Getting into office offers a leadership role to a given agenda. If the liberty movement wants a liberty-minded president, that presidential candidate needs votes. Rand is trying to infiltrate the Republican Party and convert it. He can’t do that without playing the system.

    But they have amendments to their constitution. We do not have a written constitution. We also have appointed ministers who are peers. Anyone can in theory run for president. At least all of their senators & congressmen are elected. And they do not have the absurdity of the monarchy. As an aside as our country is in such a terrible mess due to Bush, Blair and most of all Thatcher I would like to see the best brains in all parties working together to sort it out trouble is that the only tory

    I disagree their system is not more democratic. First of all the President is is elected by a form of electoral college a system which is prone to not reflect actual voting. Secondly the President isnt as accountable to the Legislative as in parliamentary systems.Thirdly alot of people in the executive are appointed and not elected. Lastly while I admire the Bill of Rights the US Constitution is inflexible and I believe our method of adopting legislation through precedence and change is better

    I am fully aware that Blair was responsible for the lies on Iraq. Actually their system is far more democratic than ours we have as you say an unelected upper house and also a monarchy. I love America and I only goad as you put it right wing lunatics.

    You say that Ron Paul failed, and then you describe how Ron Paul succeeded. That and your belief that a candidate needs to play the game to get anywhere tells me that you are a very confused individual.

    Stop goading the Yanks mate you are making us Brits look bad. And on WMD it was Tony Blair who came up with that crock of shit so you scored a bit of an own goal on that one. Many Americans have a miopc view of the world and believe in their exceptionalism.I disagree with their undemocratic political system but we have a flawed system as well with an unelected upper house. Mitt Romney is a waste of space with the intellect of a fruit fly a very rich fruitfly.

    Every politician has an agenda. They need votes to further that agenda. Rand is closely tied to the liberty movement. His father isolated himself and went against the system head on. Sure enough, it failed. In order for the liberty movement to have a leader in the White House, the candidate needs to play the game in order to GET THERE. Ron put the spotlight on the revolution. Now, Rand is trying to do what’s necessary to gain the crucial leadership role. And that means ONE thing. V-O-T-E-S.

    Yeahh. It’s a shame that Rand will lose so many votes to the stupid Ron Paul supporters who are out there. If they could only see what he’s planning. His dad got the spotlight on the liberty movement with his noble campaign for the presidency. Now, Rand is going to harness that fire and play politics to WIN. You just have to trust that if Rand becomes president, he will serve the grass roots. I just imagine more and more Ron Paul endorsed congressmen winning, and being united with Rand in 2016.

    The FAUXNEWS story on how Rand was shown incriminating evidence about the things he thought were secret some sexual in nature. And how he loved his status as a puppet senator and didn’t want these things to come to light so he did what he was told and endorsed corporate raider mitt romney.

    Its called a CRIME, every American legaly able to vote can vote for any person they want. does not matter what party they are with.they can write in who they they think stands for America,its people and there interests. to go against your Rights is to go against The Constitution. remember they all take an Oath to protect and preserve the Constitution.

    Rand has shown himself adept at double-speak. How can he endorse a candidate who seems to represent everything that Rand supposedly opposes?

    Anonymous is people, and people are tired of the bullshit that they’re being fed by dishonest politicians, including yourself. Your father refused to endorse Mitt Romney on public television, and how could he not? He’s been speaking out against him the whole time, and unlike you, he’s not about to flip-flop to gain the support of his deluded followers.

    Wrong. If Rand had not supported Romney, he would have had the support of the steadily increasing number of voters who are tired of the status quo candidates who sell out their principles to advance their goals. Now, he is slumped together with those reprobates, and he will be cast aside in favor of someone who is more like his father. For Rand, the party is over.
