They were ready. They were determined, proud. But by Tuesday, what NPR described as a " raucous crowd of nearly 10,000 " Ron Paul supporters "who nearly filled the Sun Dome arena in Tampa," on the Sunday preceding the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., had dwindled to only hundreds.

these guys, who are the bravest and the wisest were there. You know Tampa is something like the axis of evil, where these republicans sit. Maybe Ron Paul did not want to unleash riots or something alike, it would give nothing and many people could be arrested or even something worse could happen. It is even not blame of these criminal republicans that he has lost, it is blame of morons, who have voted for this Romney.

Use it to our advantage. Our message of freedom rings home to many people. Equal protection and rights of the people. Not politicians making a career spending others money promoting one business over another or one group of people over . This is what the general welfare clause was about, limited innumerated laws, equally applied to everyone. We have to keep on talking to others, spreading the message of freedom, constitutionalism, and equality to everyone. We will win if we press on. If Romney does the typical GOP things, we might be able to challenge him in the next primary. And once people get a taste of freedom, the other parties will be on the way out.
Thank all you Libertarians for the ideas freely discussed and debated

No Romney supporter here, but Obama is far worse than Romey and his followers are far more scary.

"“The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.
The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.
The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their president.”
