Never give up the good fight. The GOP can be restored. America can be restored, That's why Ron Paul hasn't given up on his party or his country.

duh? for the same reasons Progressives, Socialists and Communists RUN as Dems... TO GET ELECTED.
Libertarians, like RP, run as Reps to get elected. how many 'fringe' candidates EVER beat an R or D? the American voter is conditioned to vote for one of the big two.
Obama is no more a REAL Dem than McCain or Bush are REAL Reps.
voters need to wake up to the fact BOTH maj Parties are NOT their parents' Parties. hell, look at the grief RP (and others!) get for even mentioning 'follow the Constitution'!! bring up the Founding Fathers and u are automatically labeled a racist! point out that ANY entitlement program, even SS/Medicare, are NOT authorized as any of the limited powers granted to the Feds, and u are a hater!
IF u wanted to get elected National Dog Catcher, u would need to PICK one of the two, R or D, to run as, period.

You won't listen to President Obama's own words, but you're gullible enough to swallow every word of www.westernjournalism.com , a right-wing ,nutcase conspiracy-mongering group headed by idiot-in-chief Floyd G. Brown-- top dirty-tricks and political liar in the republican party. Yes, you are a certifiable insane person. lol
obviously YOU don't listen to ALL of his words... or, u are of the same political mindset as Obama.
do u agree that our Constitution is 'flawed', HIS word?
do u also believe in 'redistribution', HIS word?
would YOU appoint self-avowed Communists (Jones) to your Admin, HE did?
would you make a stupid, and obviously racist, statement such as "I don't know exactly what the cops did BUT I'm sure their actions were wrong." (NOT an exact quote, I'm sure), like HE did?
if YOU were the supposedly smartest man EVER to be Pres, would you hide ur academic records, like HIM? and, WHY?
IF you, as Pres, were NOT a PRO 'Nanny State' Progressive Socialist, but a tax 'fairness' freak, during ur first year in office WITH A MAJORITY CONGRESS, would you forego Income Tax Reform in favor of National Health Care, like HE did?
u had better keep ur blinders on... u are really going to need them if this Progressive SCUM (Socialist, Communist, Un-American Mole, or Marxist) IS re-elected.

higgans, "do u agree that our Constitution is 'flawed', HIS word?" Of course it is. The US Constitution was written by men at a certain period in our history as a nation and does anyone believe humans are perfect?

"do u also believe in 'redistribution', HIS word?" Everyone does who knows that any economic system is a human-devised machine for the distribution of goods and services to a society. Our own capitalist system is one that has been based on a infinite-growth model of development that is counter-productive to our limited needs and welfare.

"would YOU appoint self-avowed Communists (Jones) to your Admin," You must believe in an arbitrary , select use of the US Constitution Equal Protection Clause in 14th Amendment.

"I don't know exactly what the cops,.." Two Words. Beer Summit. A Obama/Biden success, it defused the conflict , and the outcome was that Officer Crowley and Professor Gates are good friends now. It's the farthest thing from 'racism ' that one can imagine--actually the opposite of 'racism'.

really? well, if it is flawed, what say we get busy amending it. or, do u prefer the going around it method?
nice play on the word, redistributution, and ploy. sorry, redistribution in the context used means like in the communist manner: take a little (or LOT) from those with more and give it to those with less (with no regard as to who earned what).
a Communist is by definition UN-American in pol philosophy. how does some one do a Fed govt job the American way if he/she doesn't even believe in said American way? that's like asking a duck to lay chicken eggs. now, if u think a duck and a chicken are the same simply because they both have lots in common???
methinks the beer summit was damage control... after letting the racist remark slip out. u can spin it for ur consumption however u want BUT, don't piss on my leg and try to tell me it's raining, ok?
oh, and nice of u to use that 'flawed' doc to bolster ur argument...

Ron Paul is running as a Republican because he is what the Republican party used to be. In one of his books, he talks about how he is from the Old Republican party. He also is smart enough to know that he has to run for president in one of the two major parties in order to win. If he ran as a Libertarian, he would not be getting the media coverage, he would not be in the debates, he would not be one of the four remaining candidates. He wants to convert the party back to what it used to be before the neocons took over which is why he talks about no wars, no militarism, no military empire. You are lying that he would not cut military spending. All he talks about is closing some of our 900 bases around the world down and no more wars and the cost of these wars. You are lying that he wants to end SS and Medicare. His plan to cut five federal departments to cut spending by one trillion dollars closes down five agencies, it does not touch SS and Medicare. You are lying that he has been bought by anyone. He is trying to get a really important message of stop running up debt and about the role of the federal reserve and about Kenysian economics out to the people. You don't know anything about anything, obviously. People blame Ron Paul for the problems with SS and Medicare. He has nothing to do with it. Santorum wants to end those programs now, not on people under 55, on everyone right now. Cain's tax plan ended SS and Medicare. Romney is for Paul Ryan's plan to make Medicare into vouchers. Paul is the ONLY one saying he would cut military spending instead of cutting SS and Medicare. I think people blame him for things he never said because he is the Libertarian, he is for cutting government spending so people blame all the things that need cuts on him somehow. He has nothing to do with the debt in SS and Medicare, and he is the only one saying he would cut militarism and keep those programs going for those who are on them.

@higgans, "really? well, if it is flawed, what say we get busy amending it. " We have been 'amending it' for the last 200 years since the original document was passed by the United States. Where have you been?

"a Communist is by definition UN-American in pol philosophy." Not exactly; civic exclusion is anti-pluralist and anti-American. There were communists elected to many important local and state positions throughout our midwest states during the Populist Revolt during America's Gilded Age .

@Pamela,"If he ran as a Libertarian" Imagine if Ron Paul had run as an 'Old Liberal' like Hubert H. Humphrey and Alben Barkley. "My friends, to those who say that we are rushing this issue of civil rights, I say to them we are 172 years late. To those who say that this civil-rights program is an infringement on states’ rights, I say this: The time has arrived in America for the Democratic Party to get out of the shadow of states' rights and to walk forthrightly into the bright sunshine of human rights. People -- human beings -- this is the issue of the 20th century. People of all kinds -- all sorts of people -- and these people are looking to America for leadership, and they’re looking to America for precept and example."~from Hubert H. Humphrey's 1948 'minority report' Address to the Democratic National Convention.
