    The thing is, it's so easy for Ron Paul to have great speeches because his whole campaign is based on common sense. I don't see why he isn't president right now. #RonPaul2016 #RonPaul2020

    1. Not proven one bit in fact shows bigger companies taking advantage of people
    2. DeRegulating has shown to cause risky banking and investments
    3. What your talking about is a Price War, Typically, the smaller, more marginal, firms cannot compete and must close. The remaining firms absorb the market share of those that have closed. The real losers then, are the marginal firms and their investors. In the long term, the consumer lose too. With fewer firms in the industry, prices tend to increase

    FREE BASIC ECONOMICS LESSON BECAUSE YOU NEED ONE.
    1. Free markets encourage fair competition.
    2. Regulations discourage competition.
    3. Competition increases quality (of products/services) while decreasing prices, thus benefiting consumers and rewarding companies who consumers choose, while punishing ones that don't deserve to be in business (companies which consumers DO NOT choose to buy from).
    NOTE: Bailing out failing companies is rewarding failure, and not a free market.

    Unless you VOTE for Gary Johnson — we won't have an Election, but puppet Selection!

    You want a prediction — here is an APODICTIC one:

    The American People LOOSE, regardless which one of these two puppets (Barack Hussein or Mormon Mitt) gets "elected"!

    Just Say NO to Rmoney — VOTE for ANYONE but Mormon Mitt!

    The Mormons stripped the richest man in the world, Howard Hughes, not only of his life, but his entire fortune (that is how the Mormons got financial power to jump start their cult)!

    Now another Mormon wants to do the same to our entire Nation!
    And his 5 Mormon Sons are waiting in line to finish US off!

    *Vote FOR Gary Johnson* — Do NOT vote for Mormon Mitt (or Barack Hussein) the lesser of two evils!

      Amazing that the people have been bamboozled into thinking that either Barack or Mitt are a solution — when both are AGAINST these principles upon which our Nation was built!

      PRINCIPLES we must stand by!

      “A government big enough to give you everything you need, is a government big enough to take away everything that you have….” Thomas Jefferson

      “They who would give up an essential liberty for temporary security, deserve neither liberty or security” BENJAMIN FRANKLIN

      “When liberty is taken away by force it can be restored by force. When it is relinquished voluntarily by default it can never be recovered.” DOROTHY THOMPSON

      “Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretence, raised in the United States. A military force, at the command of Congress, can execute no laws, but such as the people perceive to be just and constitutional; for they will possess the power, and jealousy will instantly inspire the inclination, to resist the execution of a law which appears to them unjust and oppressive.” —Noah Webster, An Examination of the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution (Philadelphia 1787).

      “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing” EDMUND BURKE

      “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.” ABRAHAM LINCOLN
      —————————————————————————–

      Voting for either anti-American — Barack the Kenyan or Mitt the Mexican Mormon — would only be legitimizing the further government corruption that seems to have no end!

      VOTE for Garry Johnson — who stands for these principles, and is on nearly all 50 States ballots (unlike my 1st choice, Ron Paul, who is NOT on ANY States ballots) or face the dire consequences of failing to do so — TIME TO WAKE UP AMERICA!

      VOTE GARY JOHNSON — the only REAL AMERICAN LEFT on the BALLOT!

    MITT ROMNEY... REALLY?

    http://progresshawk.posterous.com
    http://progresshawk.wordpress.com

    Well, the election is just days away and I am BAFFLED at how many independents have decided to support Mitt Romney. To those who are doing so because they believe he somehow represents free markets or capitalism more so than the president, I say mark my words: Mitt Romney is no more capitalist, and no less socialist than Barack Obama. I’ll say it again. ROMENY IS NO MORE CAPITALIST AND NO LESS SOCIALIST THAN OBAMA. He is a classic big government, neoconservative, Rockefeller republican, even if he claims not to be. Remember, George W. Bush ran on a small government, non-interventionist platform and he turned out to be fascist scum. American’s should have known better then, and we certainly ought to know better today.

    Mitt Romney is a man with offshore accounts, who makes more money in one hour than you and I will make in 1-2 years. He gets to pay 13% in taxes while the rest of us are stuck paying up to a third of our incomes, and won’t release any his prior tax returns, which would reveal all of his tax dodging activities in the Caribbean. He distanced himself from Bush during the campaign, with good reason (really, how bad was it if our own republican presidents and VPs aren’t even invited to the Republican National Convention one cycle ahead?), but he is a part of the same club, and he STOLE the primary election from Ron Paul, one of the only real conservatives left.

    Here is a video of the good doctor explaining the explaining what neoconservative republicans like Mitt Romney really are, and another that documents this establishment in the act of ROBBING HIM OF THE NOMINATION:

    Ron Paul on Neoconservatives: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ADINuxdKC4

    RNC destroying democracy – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IrYdBL7BFwE

    By the way, Romney’s family is also part owner of the company which builds our voting machines, but that’s paranoid, right? Look into it and decide for your self - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8OqPyjueYf4.

    While I don’t believe in punishing those who become wealthy through legitimate means, people like Mitt Romney are the scum of the earth. Yes, free loaders exist in our culture and our system both encourages and perpetuates it. But do you know how cartoonish your imagination has to be to believe that they make up 47% of the country, or that 40+ million people are uninsured and 20 million unemployed because they’re lazy, or that mass poverty comes from those who are living in it? He has also stated that as commander and chief he would consult his lawyers to reach his BUSINESS decisions regarding war. He has NO interest in bringing our sons and daughters home from any of our privatized wars. But what more could we expect from a regular Bilderberg Conference attendee? - http://rt.com/usa/news/euro-secret-bilderberg-meeting/

    Yes, foreign dictators are scum too, but Mitt won’t hesitate to get in bed with them, just like every Neocon before him has. Figures like Saddam Hussein always start out as our friend and we help them into power, usually because there’s an alternative figure who wants to give the country’s oil and resources to its own citizens without letting other countries interfere. Once we help overthrow and/or assassinate that person, we give our new friends weapons to maintain their power in exchange for cooperation, until they become too power hungry and we have to bomb and reoccupy the region to maintain OUR control – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8djvyXclCI.

    Thank you Ron Paul for not even flirting with the idea of an endorsement, and damn you Rand for encouraging the lesser of two evils mentality among independents. Mitt Romney does not represent free markets or capitalism, and why is it that people can accept socialism for the rich, when socialism for poor is supposed to be the most vile thing on the planet? We’ve seen how much Romney despises THAT kind of socialism (http://www.thedailyshow.com/watch/tue-september-18-2012/the-..., http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0dnZfV4R_qk), but what about the transfer of wealth from the poor to the rich? Why doesn’t that bother the free market fundamentalists? Aren’t these the same people who told me that socialism is socialism? What kind of socialism could possibly be worse? Canadian style healthcare? If we didn’t have socialism for the rich, we wouldn’t need socialism for the poor. One way or another you are voting for both- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WapolcyIQdQ.

    MY PREDICTION

    If Romney wins, people like me will be blamed. They’ll say, “See? You should have voted for Obama. Now we’re stuck in these wars indefinitely.” But if Obama wins those in power will still find some justification to keep us at war indefinitely WITH PUBLIC SUPPORT, even if that means conducting false flag terrorism at home or abroad. Of course we’ll have no way to prove this and the so-called anti-war movement will rise out of its slumber and begin protesting once again, because now it will be happening under a republican instead of a democrat. What an effective manipulation tool this corporate-owned two-party system has provided the machine…

    If you’re a progressive, please check out my essay: 24 Reasons for Liberals to Write In Ron Paul or Refuse To Vote In 2012 (www.progresshawk.wordpress.com). If you’re a conservative please get a grip and don’t even CONSIDER voting for anyone other than Ron Paul, or someone like him. If you want ANY HOPE for the word republican to have some credibility behind it again, take this opportunity to let the republican establishment self destruct, and resurrect itself with the grass-roots intellectual freedom and liberty supporters. Modern conservatism is too far got to fix from within and the same can be said about modern day liberalism as well.

    I leave you with some videos of Ron Paul intellectually pummeling Mitt Romney. Happy voting!

    P.S. Here is some important recent information COPIED FROM RONPAUL.COM:

    -Why Romney Doesn’t Need the Liberty Movement

    Mitt Romney’s political career is a testament to the fact that he would say and do anything to get elected. If he believed that gaining some of the votes of the 5+ million Ron Paul supporters in this country would have been worth the effort of reaching out to Ron Paul and the liberty movement, Romney would not have hesitated to have done so.

    But hesitate he did. And not just that… he went on to viciously and repeatedly spit in the collective faces of Ron Paul and his supporters.

    Does Romney believe that the morally bankrupt rallying cry “But we have to defeat Obama!” will be sufficient for the liberty movement to hold its nose and vote for Mitt?

    Romney is an intelligent and calculating man, so he must know that this will work only with a small percentage of the movement.

    This leaves only one possible conclusion:

    Romney already knows that he is going to win, and that he can do so without the liberty movement’s support.

    Rand Paul basically said the same thing just a couple of days ago: “My prediction, and of course I could be wrong, but my prediction is that this is going to be 1980. This is going to be an election that was projected to be very close, we have all these battleground states, but in the end Romney is going to pull away and he’s going to win by a bigger percentage than anyone predicts, because I think the polling is modeling on 2008 and not really factoring in an enormous wave of Election 2010, and I think that we’re still headed in that same direction.”

    If Rand’s assessment is correct and if Romney has victory in the bag, then there is no reason for Ron Paul supporters to vote for Romney just to get Obama out of office.

    More than 20,000 Ron Paul supporters have already pledged to cast a principled vote for Ron Paul even in the face of electoral defeat. That’s commendable and wonderful. Others are supporting Gary Johnson to help strengthen the largest third party. A few will still be voting for Romney because they hate Obama or believe that Romney is the lesser of two evils. And some Ron Paul supporters are even strategically rooting for Obama, saying that the inevitable backlash against a second term would lay the groundwork for a Ron Paul comeback in 2016.

    -Ron Paul is an official write in candidate in several states, but that’s entirely due to his supporters’ efforts. Ron Paul did not discourage these efforts but he stated very clearly that he is not actively participating.

    Ron Paul: “I get a lot of questions on that, a lot of phone calls and emails, and people sometimes want me to sign something, to fully endorse it as a legal matter. But I haven’t signed anything, so I neither encourage it nor discourage it, because of the frustration, because in some places they won’t count the votes. But if people feel totally exasperated and still want the satisfaction of doing something, there shouldn’t be anything wrong with it. But I don’t ever want to lead people to deception like, “Oh yea, if we have this write in campaign and all of a sudden major things will happen”. And that’s not true. If there is a write in campaign, those individuals that are doing it, the most important thing is to hold their feet to the fire and make them count them. But they don’t [count them]. Politics is not always a very clean business. That’s why it’s a lot easier to deal with philosophy than it is with politics. Politics is a tool but it’s not necessarily an end. The end is changing the philosophy. So if these campaigns one way or the other can get attention to serve the issues then I think it’s worthwhile.”

    -Ron Paul has not endorsed anyone and he did not reveal who he will be voting for, or if he is going to be voting at all.

    Ron Paul: “I haven’t decided yet, at least I have decided not to announce it, so I’m going to sort of sit tight for a little bit longer. [...] I haven’t announced support for Romney, that means it’s very unlikely, and I don’t think anybody thinks I’m going to vote for Obama. It’s back to that frustration level of not seeing a dramatic choice in the way the system works.”

    -Ron Paul said a few nice words about Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson, but they do not amount to an endorsement.

    Ron Paul: I think [Gary Johnson] is wonderful and I think he’s doing a good job, and people should look at him, and every individual should make up their own mind.

    -Ron Paul recently stated that Romney might be better on taxes and Obama might be better on foreign policy. But none of that can be construed as an endorsement.

    Ron Paul: Would Romney be better for America than Obama? I think not necessarily, no. (Applause) Is that a gentle no? (Laughter) And the reason I say a little bit is, maybe in some areas he might be a little better, and maybe in other areas Obama might be a little bit better. The odds of us expanding war and getting in more trouble is worse with Romney. When it comes to maybe hitting you with a higher tax, you’re a little bit better off with Romney.

    You are right, he doesn't have a record of compromising, and taking bribes, in order to push oppressive legislation through Congress. Both parties are working overtime to fleece Americans and plunder the rest of the globe.

    Ron Paul DOES have a long record of ignoring corrupt corporate lobbyists and being the lone "NO" vote on so many bills that violate our Constitution.

    That's real leadership. I don't want compromise from Ron Paul. I don't want any compromises when it comes to my liberty.

    I like his ideas for domestic policy. Problem is, he has no record of introducing a bill that has been passed in congress (that I know of), so I question his leadership ability to gain buy in to make his agenda into law. I would love to end the fed, but can he persuade congress to pass legislation that would kick-start the fed's unraveling? So far, he has not been able to.

We demand that you PaulTards vote for Honest Mitt Romney. Mitt Romney is very wealthy and a Mormon so you owe him your vote. Romney 2012!
