    If you don’t realize how both parties represent practically the same policies on anything that counts (Fed, spending, wars…), you have some waking up to do.

    As a side note, the Green Party’s equivalent to Tea Party would be PETA. Not sure how much influence these extremists have among the Greens, though.

    Yep, Hillary got a lot of flak for talking about how the creation of Al Qaeda is the result of US activities (particularly the CIA) during the Gulf War. People interpreted that as “America brought the terrorist war on itself” and forgot to face the truth. Being frank to the public has its own price, and old Paul didn’t take that into consideration. I can only hope people are more concerned about the truth, with this election having a record-breaking number of fact-checkings being published.

    Believe me, I don’t believe those Occupy Wallstreet guys are the rational ones either. None of those fucking fools think about what they were doing that stunt. I do think, however, those fools aren’t having much influence among the Democrats, otherwise we would’ve seen them pulling suppression on voters instead of running against that in court.

    Oh, I know, the old fool wants a lot of things to be solved at the state level, not federal level. Some makes sense like same-sex marriage, some doesn’t like education. He has a point about cutting military spending since it’s a colossal waste of money, and Republicans should have been known for keep the flow of budget from being leaked out like a broken dam. Cutting welfare though, is where Paul is an old fool. Too little to gain and too much support to lose, not worth it.

    I’m not disagreeing with you. The biggest message I have for you is that if you took that entire paragraph you typed and replaced “Tea Party” with “Occupy Wallstreet” and replaced “Republican” with “Democrat” you’d have an accurate portrayal of the Democratic Party. I don’t think the Tea Party folk have as much support as you think they do, however.

    The Tea Party is having enormous power among the Republic Party. They are here to stay. Anybody who thinks they aren’t representing that party right now must be blind or living in denial. I have seen Republicans rational enough to be disappointed by their own Party. Apparently those few guys aren’t gaining any traction and the current Republic Party is what we have. The few rational Republicans? They will never live down the fact that they and the Tea Party are on the same side.

    That being said… we need to leave the mainstream politics behind when we look at Ronald Paul. He’s not catering to either political party. He’s not like Rick Santorum. I’m from PA, so I know how much of a dumbass he can be when he opens his mouth. The only things I hear when he speaks are “I’m Republican… look at me.” There are Democrats that do the exact same thing and her name is Hillary. Do you see what I’m laying down?

    He wants to end welfare, end foreign aid to struggling nations, remove all of our military bases, kick out the federal reserve and end the current dollar as we know it in favor of gold bars or paper receipts for gold bars, and he wants to get the Federal Government out of our schools. Most leftist people wouldn’t go for that. The political parties of today are just one side calling the other racist rednecks or fascists, and the redneck side calling the others hippie communists.

    Republican doesn’t equal tea party. I think you’re prejudice against Republicans. Also, do you really know what Ron Paul stands for? If you look at his ideals, they match pretty closely the way the Republican party used to be. He wants to steer the Republican party back in that direction. If you look at the other polar opposite, you’ll have Democrats and liberals. Their ideals don’t match Ron’s very closesly aside from drug legalization.

    I don’t care with whom, any part is better than the Tea Party right now. Pick one, take a random roll. Let those Tea Party members stagnant, they are beyond tolerable at this point.

    Persuading conservative Tea Party members? Easier said than done.
    Disassociating himself from them? Just as easily as said.

    And associate with whom I wonder? Third party candidates don’t tend to get far. The best way is to try to persuade the people of a current party to a different way of thinking.

    The party chose Romney to be their representative. They have to live with their choice.
    If Ron Paul knows any better, he would disassociate himself with those people.

    I think Gary Johnson and Ron Paul were trying to cover more ground by doing it that way, because Gary Johnson was already on the Libertarian ticket.

    It’s got to change. You know? We all need to stop electing idiot children into office. And I agree, they need to be more concerned with running the country rather than a “he said, she said” contest.

    It’s quite funny because in Australia we have a similar issue between our political leaders. Our Prime Minister, Julia Gillard and the opposition leader Tony Abbott are in a childish, almost schoolyard banter with each other constantly… it legitimately feels as though they think that verbally slighting each other is more important that running the country.

    When watching the US Presidential debates, it feels the same way… however, Ron Paul being an absolute exception to the fact.

    Look at Ron Paul’s face when he’s asked if Romney won it fair and square. You can clearly see frustration, and he lied when he said he had no reason to think that he cheated. He even had to ask for the guy to repeat the question.

    Gary Johnson 2012! The reason us Ron Paul fans must vote for Gary Johnson is because in order to make liberty candidates electable, we need to establish our own party, or Libertarian party, where we care about the Liberties our founding gave us. More votes for the Libertarian party allows more funding. More funding creates more media exposure as well as greater credibility to our liberty movement. Vote Libertarian to support Ron Paul’s beliefs and shift away from the bi-partisan dictatorship!

    why isn’t Ron Paul member of the Libertarian party? Being with the Republicans is just a disadvantage for him…

    Ron Paul makes the best sense. How can we continue to try and save the world when we are suffering at home. But yet once again another dem/rep party where you have no choice but to vote for who they choose. I would vote for a rep as long as they were for my personal freedom. Romney is so ready to fight wars and attack but he hasnt served or doesnt even know what its like to have someone serve or serve himself.

    There can only be one candidate from each party, Ron Paul lost to romney, which is a shame. I would have voted for Paul (I did in the primary) but I couldn’t vote for romney.
