  • The system has determined that the November election is only between Romney and Obama. The best you can do with your vote is use it to oust the worst of the two. Obama is a Socialist which is the worst possible for the economy. Romney has a talent for sorting out the finances of failing corporations and might be able to at least keep America Inc. afloat and in production. Obama has achieved nothing diplomatically on the foreign affairs front. Romney is a proven negotiator even with odds initially stacked against him. A lot of his sabre-rattling is establishing his first negotiating position. He also lets slip a streak of his Libertarian views now and then. e.g. He’s pro-life but won’t do anything about it. He knows he has to hide his libertarian instincts in order to get elected.

    Voting for either Barack or Mitt would be legitimizing further the corruption that seems to have no end in the aim to destroy Americans’ Freedoms and Prosperity!

    If Barack or Mitt win — Free America ENDS in 2012!

    VOTE for Garry Johnson — or face the dire consequences of failing to do so — TIME TO WAKE UP AMERICA!

    (Would love to write-in Dr. Ron Paul — but ALL indications are that such write-in votes for Ron Paul will be screened and then thrown out — that’s how much the Establishment fears the Good Doctor!)


  • Brad

    Anybody but Mitt Romney

    • RC Andrews

      Anybody but the Crooks and that Brad would be anyone but the democrat running and the republican running.

      After all the problems we face is a DIRECT result of the Two Party Rigged Circus and their Clown-Posse.

  • Sergio Tkaczevski

    Ron Paul should not endorse any of these candidate for President. Ron Paul is the most electable candidate to run for President. He is real champion of the consitution. Ron Paul deserve to be President. He is very consistent. He is very honest and always saying the truth. I am ready to support Ron Paul.

  • Another Ron

    In my opinion and because of his stand on illegal immigration, Obama is a traitor. Romney, on the other hand is in the pockets of the military-industrial complex and will sap what little national treasury that’s left by pouring it down a hole in the sand in the middle east. Maybe his solution to the unemployment situation is to create a huge army and send them to the middle east. Above all, members of the established political parties cannot be trusted as most, if not all, are corrupted by the influence of money and in particular, the Senate. We need to have a man who can return the structure of out government to what it was when created. The 17th amendment to the Constitution does not allow it to be and is the cause of corruption in the Senate.

  • French Canadian

    If it wouldn’t be for RAND, Ron Paul would have endorsed Gary Jonhson a long time ago.

    You may not agree 100% with Gary Jonhson, but you have to agree at least for 90% of his positions.

    With Obama and Romney, you agree 0%. So the choice is very easy. Vote Gary Johnson. A write-in for Paul, won’t even be noticed. Only you will know, nobody else.

    Give your country a chance, vote Jonhson and show the world you want freedom, not slavery.

  • Richard

    Ron Paul cannot be elected President. Only one of two people can. Everyone should think very hard before throwing their vote away.

    • Dave Fernandez

      lol “throwing you vote away”. Another retard who doesn’t know what he’s even saying. You’re supposed to vote for who you want to win, not for who is popular.

      • Tom

        Unfortunatley Richard is exactly correct. And Dave, your child-like ad hominem attack only shows how small minded and petty you are. The race is between Romney and Obama, no matter how unfair or broken the system is, that is the fact. So a vote for Gary Johnson (or anyone other than Obama or Romney) is indeed throwing your vote away. More specifically, a vote for Gary Johhnson is tantamount to a vote for Obama. As much as you would like to tout your simple minded philosphies, they still do not change reality. It is probably best for people like you to just not vote at all, since a vote based on ignorance is worse than no vote at all.

        • Ryan


          Based on another comment you made here about ‘3rd grade math skills’; what happens when everyone that talks about ‘wasting votes’ decides to overcome their fear and vote for a third party candidate like Gary Johnson? Simple, he wins the presidency. The establishment wins when WE the People give into the fear propaganda and vote in the ‘lesser of two evils’ which are, in fact, both sponsored by, and working for, the industrial war machine.

          Think about what kind of light you would shine if you had faith in the goodness of humankind… Believe. 🙂

          Gary Johnson 2012!

  • Kraig


    I feel that we should be pushing hard to get Ron Paul as a write-in in all 50 states as hands down he is a leaps above any and all of the picks mentioned. I still feel that we as free people sell yourself short if we vote for anyone else.

    God Bless Ron Paul for many years of service to your country,


  • Joseph Hill

    Mr. Ron Paul, Thank you for your track record in congress voting for all the issues that would better serve the American People and against the issues that would hurt the American people.
    Since there are far more corrupt congressman and senators and far more corrupt news media networks, unfortunately it seems, the truth, high moral standards, biblical based facts and anything having to do with good, will always and forever be surpressed.
    There will be a day, in the not so far future, when all those who practiced, perpetrated and followed evil will be made to answer to one that they will not be able to escape from. Their consequenses, loss of eternal life. Hell fire will be their reward. Please support Gov. Mitt Romney. We must replace Obama.

  • Lois

    The enemy within this nation has infiltrated all our institutions.

    The white man is the backbone, brains of these United States, but the enemy are doing everything to steal our wealth, our people, destroy this Judeo/Christian nation.

    Why can’t white people have their own nations? They can’t because the world will always follow us into our nations. God warned there will be those that will want to steal from us. I believe in segregation.

    • Tom

      You are delusional, and should be removed from the gene pool.

  • jim

    Look, Ron Paul would want make significant contributions being an advisor to Gary Johnson as President than his being interested in the whole job as President. He could probably pick and chose his way into various advisory positions w Gary J as President, and not have to put up w all the ruckus of actually being President. He’d have more time to traverse behind the scenes and move mountains that need to be gone. Just get Gary Johnson elected. Ron Paul will be happy to play a part in his administration. Get Gary Johnson elected first.

  • Paul Peterson

    My opinion is that those of you who are supporting Mitt Romney are not truly Ron Paul supporters and should not even be on this website. It appears to me that if you’re most interested in removing Pres. Obama, then you’re more Republican oriented than you are interested in electing Ron Paul. My desire is to elect Ron Paul and nobody else.

    • Tom

      The only problem with your reasoning is everybody (except you perhaps) knows that Ron has ZERO chance of getting elected. Gar Johnson has ZERO chance of getting elected. As painful as that is, it is the actual reality. So once you get a grip on reality, the situation becomes more clear. The vote is in essence picking the lesser of 2 evils. There is literally no other option at this late juncture in the process.

      • RageFury

        The only problem with your reasoning is, that line of thinking has led to today’s issues. Anyone with 3rd grade critical thinking skills understands that the Lessor of 2 evils is still evil. They also understand there is Zero difference between Obama and Romney. Under Obamney we get 4-8 years of more of the same. Nothing will change and the country will continue the nosedive into oblivion.

        Once your kind gets a grip and joins us in reality we might actually get some real change around here…

    Ps…add Chelene to the list of Great Governors like those in Arizona and New Mexico!

  • Leslie Webb

    Chances Romney will start a war in the Middle East– 100%. War is the enemy of liberty. Whatever you do, do not vote for Romney.

    • RC Andrews

      Hey Leslie we have been at war in the Middle East way before Iraq and are still at war, nonetheless.

      In fact The United States first established a “diplomatic” presence in Beirut in 1833 guess who was the sitting Puppet-in-Chief?

      Like I have said all of my voting life the problem with this country isn’t the people so much as it is our presidents are puppets to the European Power Brokers.

      Also don’t forget it was Alexander Hamilton who was in the back pockets of England Bankers and saddled us with England’s debt-money system.

      We need statesmen and women like Patrick Henry and Samuel Adams and we need a president with no strings attached save to those who TRULY understand what Freedom is and what Liberty stands for.

      Freedom means freedom FROM government and until we get back our individual liberty and banish the Collectivists Pigs from our country we will never know peace or prosperity for that matter.

  • Brandon B

    Mr. Paul you better run independent or third party you’ll have my vote for sure.

  • Brandon Parsons

    Ok. Here is the deal. To endorse/vote for anyone other than Romney at this point would be foolish. Everyone knows that Obama needs to be taken out of the White House. Every vote counts. Romney needs to win. This country is literally going to become socialist and our rights will be taken away one by one. Everything will change if Obama gets four more years and we can’t allow that. Romney will at least make some things better in my view.

    • Michael

      Romney is foolish for unilaterally declaring war against Iran to prop up his favorite monopoly bank that has brought the US into bankruptcy.

      • Tom

        You literally sound like some senile old man muttering to himself about nonsense. But yet you get all of these thumbs up. I am now questioning the mentality of the people on this web site. I have collected a massive set of data that proves, without a doubt, that the average american is about as smart as a bag of hammers.

        • Brandon

          From the looks of your contributions to this blog, you seem to fit right in that category! Please leave!

  • Kim in WI

    Africa for Africans, Asia for Asians, all White countries for EVERYBODY??

    According to international law, that’s White genocide!

    Anti-racist is a code word for anti-White.

    • Leo


      That is because we are the greatest country on Earth. Where else would you want everyone else to dream of going?

      Heck, most Americans want to live in the Midwest but can’t afford to move to where the air is pure and everyone speaks English!

      Have a great day.

        Hi Leo,

        Well, what is the excuse for flooding all other White countries with millions of non-White immigrants and forcing the White population to integrate with them? If we object, we can be threatened, harassed, fired from work, expelled from school, arrested, beaten or even killed.

        That is genocide. Anti-Whites are pushing it.

        Anti-racist is just a code word for anti-White!

    Let’s just skip all the anti-White PC, shall we?

    Get Obama out, take action locally to change the GOP. Although I like Gary Johnson, he isn’t Ron. And Obama is evil incarnate. Sorry but It has to be Mitt this time. If for nothing else, to stop Obama from appointing any supreme court judges.

    • Leo


      Yes, you are so right.
      I liked Santorum myself or even Palenty but we cannot afford Barack Hussein Obama to seat 1 or more Liberals to the Supreme Court.

      Senor Juan McAmnesty was a terrible choice for the GOP the last time around as most Veterans refused to vote for a Traitor who got on bended knee in San Diego and begged for the vote of “La Raza”.

      We must change the GOP one Governor at a time. We need more Governors like the Ladies from Arizona and New Mexico.
      They would make better Presidents than either Barack or Mitt.

      BHO = 18 letters in name or divided by 3 initials = 6 6 6 = ????????

      Ps….Chelene Nightingale for Governor of California, the next time around.
