WOW, so a Ron Paul supporter should continue to support Ron Paul even when he is no longer running for office/seeking support?


A Ron Paul supporter should support the candidate that actually holds Ron Paul's views. You know...Gary Johnson.


Ron Paul did make it a point to not endorse Romney, but he also said he wouldn't endorse Gary Johnson or anyone else (maybe looking out for his son's future presidential run).


That really was a pretty sad thing for Paul to do, not endorsing Gary Johnson. I was very disappointed by that.

I have been thinking about it for a long time, as he easily best represents my views. There are a couple problems though. I have never heard of this guy until just recently (1st Republican debate), and I have also come to notice that most of the people I know who support him are complete dickheads.

I think he didn't endorse Gary Johnson so that his son wouldn't get screwed over by the Republican Party. I'm more disappointed in Rand Paul than Ron. That being said, most Paulites I know (with some exceptions, e.g. Phattraitor) are voting for Gary Johnson. It's not like we're stupid. "Hmmm... who am I going to vote for? It has to be whomever Ron Paul endorsed. Wait, he didn't endorse anyone? Oh no! Whatever shall I do!"

Those are horrendous reasons to vote for Mitt Romney.

I did not list those as reasons to vote for Romney, I listed those as my thoughts and feelings about Gary Johnson.

Probably because he's a Republican. Ron Paul also happens to be a Republican.

Well, it's official now. It took our Commander in Chief 10 days to figure out we were hit by a terrorist attack in Libya, and he spent most of the time in those 10 days going on David Letterman, partying with Jay-z and Beyonce, hosting the WNBA champions (Minnesota Lynx 8-) ) hanging out in Vegas as well as attending 6 fundraisers, and all the while bitching at his opponent for being wrong..."the Middle East is on fire, but it's just a harmless protest over a video!!!!!"

Are we still asleep I asked? Aint no alarm clock that can wake up anything from this deep a slumber...

Links to what? The terrorist attack in Libya on September 11th? Or links that prove Obama was on Letterman? I would love nothing more than to provide links, but that is a lot of stuff the President has been very, VERY busy). Please state specifically which links you need more information about, and you shall receive with the most joyous of pleasures.

Links shows that "It took our Commander in Chief 10 days to figure out we were hit by a terrorist attack in Libya"

and then, why not provide support for 'since he was spending all this time doing other stuff, then [insert your relevant conclusion here].'

I've heard a bit of it, but I have not heard it being seriously bandied about that much. Which of his proposed policies are in question?
