Santorum rips Ron Paul for Romney alliance, denies Specter’s claim of no deal

On Friday’s broadcast of Laura Ingraham’s radio show, Rick Santorum defended his claim that his endorsement of moderate Sen. Arlen Specter in 2004 stemmed from a conversation the two had about supporting President Bush’s Supreme Court nominees.

Specter had appeared on MSNBC earlier in the day and denied that he and Santorum had discussed Bush’s nominees prior to the 2004 election.

“We never had any such conversation,” Specter told the network’s Chuck Todd. “It would be improper to make a commitment on a vote before I knew who the nominee was and whether I thought the nominee was qualified. I’ve got a very strong reputation and a record behind that did not make deals like that.”

Santorum, however, told Ingraham that wasn’t the case and cited the confirmations of Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts and Associate Justice Samuel Alito as proof.

      You’ve been told Lies about Dr Paul and now you repeat them. He is the only candidate with Libertarian Roots who wants to reinstate the Constitution and all of our rights for All Men and Women. While every other candidate both left and right have positions that continue to chip away at the rights guaranteed by the US Constitution. A vote for Ron Paul is a Vote for limiting the tyranny of government. Ron Paul is the exact opposite of a Nazi . . . How about doing a little research next time!

      • bob jones

        Absolutely right Robert. The corrupt GOP establishment have shown again that they will do whatever they have to in order to discredit Paul. They make up a phony Ron Paul VP story to make it look like he approves of the globalist Romney, which couldn’t be further from the truth. This is tame compared to how they have stolen through voter fraud virtually every GOP primary so far fromPaul. Very telling that in state after state the GOP chairman resigns in disgrace immediately after their primary due to massive voter fraud, yet results are allowed to stand and criminal charges are never filed. We are not playing your corrupt games anymore GOP. Ron Paul 2012.

          Isn’t the story about Paul teaming up with Romney? Isn’t Romney the GOP establishment’s candidate. Doesn’t that mean Paul is teaming up with the GOP establishment to help Romney? How stupid is it to then say that Paul is at odds with the establishment? Dumb dumb dumb.

          Lies, propagandas, and deceptions is what makes any selection so difficult when character assassination is applied. I have supported Ron Paul because of his fierce defense of the United States Constitution and limited government. However, if there is any truth about Mitt Romney being selected by him as U.S. Vice President, he can forget about his chances of becoming America’s United States President.

          On the other hand, it would behoove Ron Paul to publicly declare the VP selection as false, and to assure his status as potential Candidate for the U.S. Presidency, he may as well announce his true selection for his U.S. Vice President right now. We are being told so many lies that puts us in a position to select someone else altogether that is not involved in critizism of one another, and stick to the tyranny and dictatorship that is over-running our nation by a foreign-born Muslim communist agent dictator Mr. Barack Hussein Obama II. A foreign-born agent that cannot possibly prove his birth in America and its territories, and this qualifies him as a “Saboteur” punishable by death.

            Well your wrong Master Sargent Correa. You really need to watch the things that Ron Paul said in speeches from the Senate floor, not the things that are coming out of his mouth now. His view changes depending which way the political wind is blowing. He has made statements that would put the United Nation in control of the US and that can never happen. Please don’t be a mind numb robot. You can easily pull up this mans speeches and see for your self. His foreign policy and defense policy mirror that of Obama. This man’s claim to fame is shutting down the fed and handing our counties security over to the UN. He sides with the conspiracy theorist. I’m sure if you really take the time to list all the core values you have and compare them to Ron Paul you will see you have nothing in common with this man. On too many issues he is further left of Obama. Ron Paul can be Quoted as saying the U.S. created the terrorist and that is an out right lie. Remember what happened when Reagan became President… The Iranian terrorist government could give back the hostages fast enough knowing what Reagan would do. Ron Paul on the other hand would just simply let the terrorist do what ever they want in the world. That is his policy.

            NO WAY Dr. Paul would have Mitt Romney in ANY part of his Administration. Ron Paul has mentioned Judge Andrew Napolitano as a POSSIBLE VP choice, but has made no official commitment thus far! (WHAT a great team they would make! ~ Personally, I would like to see Judge Napolitano on our U.S. Supreme Court in order to bring back some SANITY in USSC rulings that affect ALL of us!!!

            Congressman Ron Paul was against and far superior to Mitt Romney’s comments on Wednesday’s Arizona debate on about every question they had to respond to, and he was better than the other two candidates. He is the only one who understands we cannot stir up wars and continue wars and bankrupt our nation the way the Soviet Union was bankrupted before it fell. There is no truth to this rumor of an alliance with Mitt Romney.

          • wnettles

            The fact that the title of the article, “Santorum rips Ron Paul for Romney alliance, denies Specter’s claim of no deal”, and, the fact that there was absolutely no mention of Ron Paul anywhere in the article, should give you all some clues that the entire article is a propaganda piece. Ron Paul is the only candidate that FULLY SUPPORTS and PROMOTES the return of our country to a Constitutional government, of, by, and for, THE PEOPLE. Tyranny is the enemy of RON PAUL, not his rivals for the office of President. They are just the method being attempted to minimalize him. Do not fall for their bogus lies and deceptions. Know them for what they are, evil. RESTORE AMERICA NOW. Vote RON PAUL for President of the United States of America. Stand up, be AMERICAN!!!

          I would say if you have any way to watch the debate over again that you should. Ron Paul did not slam Romeny at all. In Florida he did not slam Romeny but went after Newt, now in Arizona he said nothing about Romeny but slammed Santorum. He slams anyone that goes up against Romeny Paul supporters need to wake up. I like what Ron Paul has to say most of the time but if hes going to stick up for the republican version of Obama I cannot support him. His rhetoric does not match up to what he’s says he wants to do. But what really disturbed me is that he and his son claim to fight for life but he said the ABORTION PILL WAS JUST BIRTH CONTROL

          Way to go Santorum! Rip someone for something they didn’t do after you were ripped for a bunch of things you did do.

          I heard Ron Paul’s adviser (Doug Weed) say, “If you keep telling lies about me, I am going to have to start telling the truth about you.” This is what Ron Paul has done.

          What kind of morals do you have if you are supposedly against abortion, but compromise your morals and “take one for the team” murdering thousands of innocent lives to be a “team player”? Santorum, you are a FAKE!!! There is no excuse for this.

            Some of you may remember that “Communism” has plagued the United States of America since the early 1920s with the help of our own judges in our own U.S. Courts. Allow me to pass-on and quote the following: “Let’s take a look at Law and Order in America. In 1957, on what has become known as ‘Black Monday’, the U.S. Supreme Court cut down some of the activities of the FBI, the House on UnAmerican Activities Committee, and other investigative agencies which further weakened this country against the very real dangers of Communism. Our Courts have seriously weakened America from within.”

            Wait! It gets worst as I continue to quote the following: “While our Beloved America continues to sin, to rot, to decay, to crumble…. Communism marches on. Listen to this paper on ‘Communist rule for Revolution’ which was obtained by the Armed Forces in Dusseldorf in May of 1919. (14) (A) ‘Corrupt the Young. Get them away from religion. (B) Get control of all means of publicity and thereby: 1. Get people’s mind off their government by focusing their attention on athletics, sexy books and plays, and other trivalities. 2. Divide the people into hostile groups by constantly harping on controversial matters of no importance. 3. Destroy the people’s faith in their national leaders by holding the latter up to contempt and ridicule. 4. Always preach true democracy but seize power as fast as ruthlessly as possible. 5. By encouraging government extravagance, destroy its credit, produce fear of inflation with rising prices and general discontent. 6. Foment unnecessary strikes in vital industries, encourage civil disorders, and foster a lenient attitude on the part of the government toward such disorders. 7. By specious argument cause the breakdown of the old moral virtues: honesty, sobriety, continence, faith in the pledged word, ruggedness.

            (C) Cause the registration of all firearms on some pretext with the view of confiscation of them and leaving the population helpless.”

            You never thought it could happen in America, did you? But it has! I watched Communism in America grow like a cancer. And we can’t say we weren’t warned by prominent leaders; people heard them, but they didn’t listen. I did! Now we have the foreign-born Muslim communist agent dictator Mr. Barack Hussein Obama II putting the last nail on America’s coffin.

            Here is a drug related reality check for you. Enjoy. I apologize for the length. Fact is sometimes it takes more than a two minute attention span to impart a concept of idea.

            In order to solve a problem. You must first define it. Unfortunately the world and indeed the medical profession at large finds treating the symptoms more profitable and less hassle. The war on drugs is big business and sadly enough the very people that propagate it are those whose lively hoods depend on it. Take away all the stupid fear mongering statements like. “End the drug war and we will have more addicts” and such. You then can use rationale to solve the problem. Everyone that reads the next statement take a big breath and think for five minutes before replying. Spend the WHOLE five minutes. Think about ALL the aspects of it.

            “YOU CAN NOT SELL ME SOMETHING I CAN GET ACROSS THE STREET FOR FREE”

            It would cost the American tax payer pennies on the dollar to not only produce, grow, and buy from farmers, and big pharma all the pot, cocaine, meth, heroin and etc. To not only supply and distribute for FREE all our current addicts needs. But also bring those numbers to almost zero over a five year time span.

            Imagine if you will. An addict walks into a wellfare office. As he or she is filling out an application and release of liability waver. Said addict notices two doorways. One has a smily face. The other a skull and crossbones. Behind door number one. Treatment. Door number two. The addicts drug of chioce. For Free! For the short term it has to be that way. Your have to remove the monetary incentive to end the mayhem. There is no other way.

            Only the parent’s that have lost children caught in the crossfire’s of turf wars and other related events will understand the real depth and true cost of our current failed attempt at prohabition. It does not work.

            The adrenaline junky vice cops, prison guards and related company’s, and all the other people who make their living from the war on drugs will not like this plan. Our US govt. and all it’s related agency’s and their employees will not like this plan. Needless to say. The drug cartels and all their underlings will have to find jobs as well. Their are solutions to the unemployment problems that ending prohabition would create. And in the long run bring addiction to almost zero.

            Food for thought. Ask any addict or recovering addict this one simple question. “Is there ANYTHING that ANYONE could do that would or could prevent you from getting your drug of choice?” The answer will always be “NO”. The monkey when in control rules the roost.That being the case. Prohabition is insanity in action.

            If we spent the money’s we currantly spend on the drug war. On prevention at grade school playground level by offering vice cops and other effected professionals the option of trading in their cop uniforms for say cubscout uniforms. And they provide positive role models and mentering services. Only those people bent on self destruction would be left to deal with. And that is on them. <—sounds cold hearted. I know but, You must look at the flip side of that. If I don't like my life that bad. It is MY choice to either fix my problems or bail out. Not the govenments. When Ron Paul say's people need to take responsibility for themselves. These are some of the things that go along with personal liberty.

            Darn. Looks like drug dealers are going to need day jobs. Gee I wonder what happened to all the drive by killings says the morticians. My business is down for some reason. The locksmiths and home security company’s are lamenting too since home invasions and theft seems to have dropped dramatically.

            Bummer all the street walkers have dis-appeared. Latest study shows STD's are down 48 percent. Recent University study shows fewer husbands bringing HIV/AIDS home to unsuspecting wives.

            This Just in. New nationwide study shows that 3 years after the war on drugs was ended. Drug Rehab centers, 28 day lockdown hospitals and clinics are reporting that the addict rehab success rates have increased from 4.9 percent to over 72 percent. Their studies and in depth investigations show that people that had NOT been forced by addiction to steal from family, con friends out of money, break promise's, And most striking of all. Were the success rates of addicts of both genders that had not needed to resort to prostitution to feed their addictions. It turns out that overall, people that have not caused others harm suffered less loss of self esteem and feelings of guilt and worthlessness,and were able to work all the steps required in a 12 step program such as AA and NA. Study says getting past the step that requires the recovering addict to do whatever necessary to make amends and or right the harm they created while in their addiction. Other benefits are fewer family breakups, lowered applications for welfare and child protection agency services. Police report drop in spousal abuse charges. They suggest the reason can be related to households that have only one addicted member and fights over finances for drug cash outlays. Police also stated the gang related shooting dropped almost to zero. Turf wars have gone the way of the Edsel.

            Also it should be noted that employee health insurance costs to employers also dropped substancially do to the large decrease of the 28 day in house programs that cost a thousand bucks a day on average.

            Poor old gun dealers can’t understand where all their business went. Seems like people just don’t care about personal protection as much as they use to they say. Looks like major layoffs are taking place at most emergency rooms in large metro area’s. People are scratching their heads. They just don’t get it. Police and fire depts. downsizing nationwide. This just in. The FDA and DEPT. Of JUSTICE in a joint study have concluded that welfare fraud is down by 73 percent, and food stamps are actually being spent on food for the children. Over heard a pawn shop owner and a collection agent talking the other day. The collection agent is job hunting. For some unknown reason. People are paying their bills. The pawn shop owner is worried about paying his store rent. And so on and so on. By now you must be getting the idea. Use the WHOLE five minutes. Commercial prisons, law enforcement, the judicial system, military, coast guard, rehab centers, first responders of all ilk. EVERYBODY is dependent on the war on drugs in one way or another.

            Keeping children away from drugs that are under the legal age of accountability. IS the resposibility of parents, With help from aware and alert schools, local business and if needed. Local laws and or state law enactments.

            The US Constitution and bill of rights says things like, "The pursuit of life liberty and happiness shall not be infringed.' It does not say It is the US federal governments duty to make sure you do not pursue life liberty and the freedom to be happy. The US Federal government does not have authority where personal choice of accountible aged citizens is concerned. People are accountible for their actions. See Driving under the influence for guidance.

            Finally People use drugs for a wide variety of reasons. In most cases when addiction occures. The root causes can be traced to the need to mask mental pian related to childhood abuse. Others dabble with part time use. And they get blind sided by the particular type of drug. Usually Opiates. Ask Rush. Stigma, legal issues add to the mix and we know its all downhill from there. Pot has many uses for both pain and recreational uses. Biggest complaint about it is there just never seems to be enough food to in the fridge to withstand the onslaught of munchee attacks.

            WHEN ALL IS SAID AND DONE. A FREE GROWN PERSON MAKES THE DECISION TO LIVE OR DIE. That is what our FOUNDING FATHERS and GOD had in mind. They were all overruled by a higher authority. OUR US FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.

          Now if you are talking about Chamberlain you are talking about Chomo the current POTUS.

          I do believe that Paul and Romney have some kind of a deal working because they don’t criticize each other and they are at the opposite ends of the GOP. I noticed this way back when the debates first began. Now Paul is running negative ads against Santorum in Michigan and Paul is not even on the Michigan primary ballot. What does that tell you. I believe the deal concerns RAND Paul and maybe a VP offer. Ron knows he is getting to old to have to wait another 8 years (should Romney be elected and re-elected) to get another shot at president, but his son Rand can, should he be vice president under Romney, Rand would have the best chance to be the GOP candidate.

            Seems I heard El Rushbo said the very thing re the Romney RAND Paul connection only yesterday. Does any of this really, I mean REALLY surprise anyone???? This is the type of deals ALL politicians make. Of course they will deny it but then that is what they do. They vote for things and then say well I was just going along with the bill so MY pet item ( pork)would be approved as well. Most of these people could not care less for the voters and citizens as they are only concerned with their free ride at the expense of all those of us who work and /or pay taxes. There is a thing called pride which is only found in real patriots. Pride has lost its meaning and is a forgotten word to those who continue to profit from other’s efforts and enjoy the benefits without doing one single thing FOR this country. This PC thing has ruined the USA and the world is laughing at us for it.Solution? there are many but a very simple one is to listen, really listen to the candidates and try to cut the crap from the claptrap and separate truth from the normal rhetoric then VOTE. At least then you can say you did something in an attempt to save our nation rather than do something TO it.

ALSO (again no for sure thing””””) but understand that the deal was made with Paul so he would not run a 3rd party against Romney.. I AM AGAINST THE ads that ROMNEY HAS RUN AGAINST the other candidates…..he accuses the others of things and when it is checked out ….SO IS ROMNEY…..!!!! i wish we had a down to earth regular guy or gal that is in our league……

            Texas 001, Your words of wisdom are so profound. I will admit in the beginning I supported Ron Paul, how ever once I started re watching the debates I said, dam how ignorant could I have been, this past week I stopped supporting him. I am a disable Vietnam veteran , and what Paul wants for us is to be_ _ _ _ _ _ _ nation helpless, and now that the back door has been open about his son becoming a VP only adds fuel to my thoughts. I had men die for this freedom we enjoy, the end of this country is over if obamasama, is re elected and the double Rom & Ron are joined together the end is in sight.

          Kansas Buffoona are you still spreading that same old crap? Paul is not an Isolationist, but you good sir are definitely a war mongering expansionist.

            kellys (she/he?), if you’re calling names, YOU may be the buffoon. ‘praypsalms’ is absolutely right. Something VERY fishy was smelling in Denmark, or, more appropriately, the last debate — especially that “fake” remark by Paul. He did sound childish (which Santorum should have called him on), especially for a former ‘soldier’, doctor, father, representative, etc., etc. Is that the kind of comment from a viable candidate for the presidency — unless he were either senile or in league with the ‘presidential looking’ (only) candidate.

            In my mind, Romney has joined Paul in my elimination process. This ‘gotcha’ game is something expected from Obama and crew but I thought ‘our’ candidates were adults and not so damn self-absorbed. Maybe the time has come to nominate a WOMAN to deal with the adult problems and let the boys play in the sandbox.

          Glad to see the Conservatives can actually unite. My concern, based on past elections, is that the Paul supporters will take their ball and go home if he doesn’t get the nomination. That’s Republican voter-pout, directly opposite to voter turn-out.

          Ron Paul sided with Romney because Santorum is now the front runner. If you paid any attention to the debates you would have noticed that who ever is leading the pack is the target of the other candidates. Who ever wins Michigan and Arizona will be the next target of their criticism. Politics is a dirty game and the politicians will do anything to make their opponent look bad.

        Robert , I agree with you, but that magazine thing with all the racist articles with Ron Paul’s name is looming in the background. That is the Nazi comment, and if Paul became the nominee it would be brought forward big time. In background now , but not if he advances.

        • Ed Orr

          Until the time arrives where Paul is one of the two front runners he is safe from his past Nazi comments in his newsletters. I can guarantee that the long knives WILL come out and cut him to pieces over his record. Remember also that he too is only a politician and not Saint Ron Paul for his work in the field of medicine.Those efforts should be applauded but NOT the basis for him to be president. Paul is no different than b.o with regards to the military and he still holds a very serious grudge for his being drafted (he said this in one of the recent debates and it is on tape!) into the military. I know, I know he says often that he receives more money from veterans than any other candidate but has never really proven so do not waste your breaths on that one to me.I took my service as a way of expressing my pride and patriotism, compare that with Paul’s mindset. The constitution is his Koran which to me points to extremism and again he mirrors b.o’s extremism in several ways.

          • Bob

            Please explain how the Constitution is extreme. If our government abided by the Constitution we wouldn’t have the problems we have now. Ron Paul did not resist being drafted into the military, he never applied for a deferment like other politicians have done. The Constitution should be resprcted and abided by all politicians, if that’s his koran, God bless him.

          • Ed Orr

            Dear Bob, you do not get the point (no surprise there) with what I have said re the constitution. IF it were to be followed to the letter and everything which has been done by every criminal politician for as long as this country was founded the court would be swamped for eons to right all that has been done contrary to the document. The constitution simply cannot be absolute like the Koran. If you cannot understand that simple point your Ron Paul blinders are so dense you are hopeless.

      • Dntmkmecmoverther

        @robert a L :Bob, if Dr. Paul is so intent on bringing back the Constitution, just what the hell was he doing for 20 friggin years in Congress??? Answer: not much. He’s just another panderer looking for a nice padded chair and a great retirement package. Screw him and the elephant he rides on. Newt is the answer not Paul.

        • Terry E

          It is sure reassuring to see the truth come out about Ron Paul finally!!! Anyone with IQ above 100 knows that Newt would make the best CEO of this nation. I have read, watched, listened to & studied him & his brilliance for over 30yrs & he IS the real deal. Romney is doing a good job of trying to buy the office & it is up to us to make sure he fails!!! BTW, it is Mitt that is making the deal with Ron Paul to position his son Rand for the VP slot. Ron Paul knows that he hasn’t a chance & has always known it but he sees himself as bringing something to the table. The only area where he has any clarity is his views on monetary policy & would make a pretty good Sec of the Treasury. Bottom line, the picks of the litter are Newt & Rick. Romney has no core beliefs & his past history of changing positions more often than a thousand dollar hooker is proof & Ron Paul is unelectable. Wake up people – this Nov when we go to the polls, keep in mind that this is the most critical election in the history of America, for if we fail we are doomed.

        • Pamela Harper

          Dntmkmecmoverther, I SO agree w/you. Newt knows more than the other three combined. He has a world of political knowledge & is not afraid to tell it like it is. I think he could beat O in landslide proportions. The GOP establishment does not like him because he could & would shake up the party they have had for too many years. Forgive him for his past infidelities & trust him to bring America back to what she should be!! Go Newt!!!!!

        Right on Spot Robert A L! Ignorance in the USA is alive and well, and the public education system, media and politicians of both parties make sure that most Americans remain ignorant and in the dark about things that truly matter and any body like Ron Paul who try and expose them, they tell lies about them and demonize them. This young Republican you were replying to is a case in point, but we cannot blame people for being ignorant. Being ignorant of the truth does not make one stupid, people can learn but they have to be educated and taught with Facts and Not Fabrications which is about all anybody ever hears on the TV, Radio and elsewhere these days. Even the so-called conservative Talk Radio and TV commentators keep trying to Brainwash citizens with their comments such as this: “Ron Paul has some good conservative Values, but he is Weak On Foreign Policy, and as well, he is Un-Electable.” This is their usual message and it is meant to Brainwash People because they believe that if they Repeat a Lie Long Enough, it becomes every body’s Belief and Reality. We have to make sure that we educate as many as possible to the truth. Just about everybody who goes to a Ron Paul function Know the Truth and that is why his supporters are so ardent.

      • Steve H

        Robert, Ron Paul is so far out that he hasn’t had a bill passed in over 20 years. No one will sponsor one of his bills and no one wants him on theirs. So wake up and smell the coffee, Ron Paul will have terrorists, with nukes, running around trying to figure out what to blow up first before he realizes that ignoring them didn’t work and killing them is the only solution.

        • Dan

          All of you people bashing Ron Paul leads me to believe you wouldn’t recognize a true Conservative if you tripped over one. If you were living back in the 1770’s they would refer to you as Tories. You would be of the majority who were supporting King George and criticizing George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and the framers of the Constitution who were in the minority. But the minority won and established this great country. And now we have you Tories in sheeps clothing trying to tear it down again. Shame on you! You will regret it some day, I promise you.

        • kellys

          They dont pass his legislation because it would not allow them to spend your money freely without restraint, it would also limit their control over you.

      • Stephen

        Ron Paul is nothing but a self-serving, self-interested, self-promoting fraud. He can say all these incredible things and no one will ever bother to go and fact check him because he will continue to be insignificant and on the fringe. The facts are: Ron Paul is a libertarian, NOT a conservative. Ron Paul is is pro-sodomite and will not bother to blink an eye if abortions were done at over 1 million a year right in front of him. So when 1 million plus people are brutally murdered in front of his face is pontificates like some irrelevant ivory tower accedemic about state and federal powers. The LIBERALtarian is neither pro-life nor pro-family. We don’t want his sort in office becauase so long as there is no check on the murder of babies and so long as there is no check on the government-sanction of sodomites as a protected minority there will be little blessing from God to America.

        Oh really? Why is Paul hand-in-glove with Romney in their own form of kaballah????? Paul knows he can’t win, so he’s playing the waiting game for his son Rand to get a prime piece of Romney’s administration should he walk away with the nomination by getting Paul’s ‘delegates in waiting’. Talk about blindness. You Paulites are to be pitied for following your own false messiah!

        • kellys

          And how do you know this, is it because thats what your candidate would do? Check Pauls record, do some research and please come back with some facts.

        • RonW

          Thinking Gal. You want the truth? or are you just here to make unfounded statements designed to people from having civil informative conversation’s. Let me give you an Idea what those that really care about Making sure America stays a sovereign nation state. This is just one of the many reasons why no stone will be left unturned in a concerted effort to make sure Ron Paul does not get his hands on that presidential ink pen.

          11. In 1963, President John F. Kennedy entered into an Agreement with President Soekarno to provide the funds to allow the United States Treasury to print its own currency, thus subverting the “right” to print the currency held by the Federal Reserve. The Agreement would have transferred some 59,000 tons of gold to underpin this currency. The problem with this was that the US domestic currency would have then been backed by gold which would have been a violation of international agreements meant to stabilize currencies. 11 days after signing this agreement, President Kennedy was assassinated. President Johnson then suspended EO11110 as issued by Kennedy and transferred the bullion to the Federal Reserve. DO YOU GET IT YET?

      • ALLAN

        I believe Paul is a good man with good intentions but to get America out of this Mess we are in ;;we need Santorum. With Santorum making the other candidates shake in their boots they are attempting to pull out all the verbal ammunition they can possibly conjure up. Doesn’t that make sense? The other candidates want the position of President and Santorum is gaining so much ground the campaign is now verbal wafare. America needs more than ever before a President that can work well with his peers in the Restoration Process for Our American Pride and Democracy

      • Sirwizard

        NAZI? Definitely not. The term ‘NAZI’, translated, means “National Socialist Worker’s Party”. The NAZI’s are National Socialists which is a form of Fascism. Obama is partly a practicing Fascist. Ron Paul is NOT a NAZI, but he is (or was) a racist as indicated by his own articles written in the not-too-distant past. Mormans racist? Well, I hope not any more. There are an entire two black faces in the Mormon Choir now. Would I support Romney or Paul? Not in the primaries. If one or both end up being the nominee, I will hold my nose and vote for them, but to be fair, I would vote for a carp before I’d vote for Obama. I absolutely will not live under any socialist form of government.

        • Bill Lee

          Paul didn’t write those articles in all likelihood. In fact, the newsletter included several other contributors. It will continue to be a PR problem, though, unfortunately.

      • Clod McGoo

        To Robert A L — A vote for Paul is a vote for Obama. Get you head out of the sand.

        • BH

          Um, just how is “a vote for Paul a vote for Obama”? If Ron was running as a third party candidate, yes, there would be truth to that. But a vote for Paul in the primaries is a vote for freedom and the Constitution; a vote for the most anti-Obama Republican candidate. Haven’t you noticed? The better Ron Paul does, the better his ideas are received, the more anti-liberal the other Republican candidates’ rhetoric becomes.

      • Mike56

        Robert the (Ron Paul) may not be an NAZI but he is anti American anarchist. Ron Paul does not like any conservative. Let’s start with why the magazine of the Libertarian movement not embraces Ron Paul. Next how many conservatives does Ron Paul like? He has attacked every one of the conservatives in this race since day one. Him and his partner Mitt Romney.
        As for my claim of Ron Paul is an anti American anarchist look at this link from the American Thinker. http://t.co/Zszj7CWw
        Ron Paul is no debater and he is defiantly not the next great white hope. In the debate he is asked why Rick Santorum is a fake; Ron Paul’s answerer is “because he is” ranks up there with Ron Paul is an idiot “because he is”. It has no foundation and which to stand. It is ONLY a ad hominem attack that MR. PAUL is good at.
        When you go out and do a little NON PARTISIEN research on Ron Paul you will find out that most of the stuff is true. Surch Ron Paul at Reason Magazine. They are far from being anti liberation.

The GOP is IMO crooked in that they are trying to get their candidate in office, not the one the people want, just like they have done for years. It’s about time the people stood up and put the man in that can beat obama, and that is only Gingrich of the three. That my friends, is exactly why they don’t want Gingrich, because they are afraid he will clean up their mess in D.C.

        • RonW

          Lady you are correct. And they only one that can do that if you had not noticed. RON PAUL is targeted on purpose by everybody for one reason. They Can’t OWN him. And that has everybody you don’t want in the OVAL OFFICE pulling their own hair out by the roots. Listen up. This is not about race or abortion or immigration, or taxes, or any of that stuff that distracts us from what is really going on people. This is about Divide and conquer distraction at it finest. This is about ANGRY bankers that want us to get on board with their plans to turn IRAN into rubble. Iran like Iraq and Libya commited a cardinal no no. The refused to accept US FEDERAL RESERVE NOTES in exchange for Their OIL EXPORTS. You don’t mess with the FED and THUG”S money. Just ask Saddam, Qaddafi, John and Bobby Kennedy When you should you get the opportunity. Our wonderful FED and FRIENDS have no Problem spilling our children’s blood for their purposes. Get a grip. The only person to throw down the gauntlet where that ONGOING CRIMINAL ACTIVITY against the American people is Ron Paul. And many here seem to be too uninformed about what is really at stake here that they make snide distorted remark’s about the only ALPHA DOG in the American political pack. Wake up and understand these people play for keeps. This is not some fairy tale. This is 2012 America and indeed the world. If those of you that spend so much time here on this site liking the sound of your own voice took the time to do a youtube search of RON PAUL and then read the comment boxes you would find that people from ALL over the world are hoping and praying that we Americans get it right and Elect Ron Paul. What happen’s here has worldwide ramifications. People out side the US get UNFILTERED news. I’ve been oversea’s and that is reality. America matters. The US GOVERNMENT on the other hand is seen abroad for exactly what it is. The IRON FIST of the GLOBAL OLD MONEY BANKERS. So put aside your stupid notions that ANYTHING is MORE IMPORTANT than ENDING THE FED and the strangle hold it has over AMERICA. And in case any of you have not noticed. RON PAUL is the ONLY person in AMERICA openly calling for THE ENDING OF THE FED. Dammit all of you get a grip. A brave man’s life is on the line for YOU.@#$%^&*(

          • RonW

            Here let me lay a little more wisdom on you people. 11. In 1963, President John F. Kennedy entered into an Agreement with President Soekarno to provide the funds to allow the United States Treasury to print its own currency, thus subverting the “right” to print the currency held by the Federal Reserve.

          • RonW

            EXACTLY WHERE IS ALL THAT GOLD NOW?

          • RonW

            The Green Hilton Agreement was not implemented until 1968 when Soekarno fell from office and when Global Trade made it imperative that the world have a Global Currency. As the Gold had been transferred to the US Treasury in 1968, a series of Bonds known as Kennedy Bonds were issued in order to honor the terms of the Green Hilton Agreement made between Kennedy and Soekarno, the 1968 terms of the gold delivery to the United States being different than made in 1934. When after 30 years, interest had not been paid as promised, a reissue of the bonds in an increased number were issued as commemorative notes and were accepted by the owners of the Gold, the Dragon Family.

      • Bill Lee

        I love Ron Paul’s record and conservative stance except in two key areas: 1/ trumping states rights above Biblical moral law and 2/ expecting rogue Terrorist states to behave with nukes at their disposal. Let’s say we have California and Nevada choose to legalize prostitution, drugs, gay marriage anything they want ala Ron Paul. 1a. The midwest wants nothing to do with all that and the next federal government that wants to exert control like Lincoln did to preserve the union will start another civil war probably siding with vice rather than virtue. 2a. We become isolationist and allow another Nazi regime, I’m thinking theocracy now to take over Europe and we have world war III. Anything wrong with this one that you can see? Ron Paul is so idealistic that he can’t see through the application of his ideals to the disaster waiting to happen. This is why I’m supporting Newt. He’s the ONLY other small government candidate that has the brains, ideas, tongue and experience to eviscerate Obama and take us through the minefield that’s ahead of us.

        Robert AL when you tell others to do there home work my question to you is have you done yours? http://www.christianworldview.net/2012/what-is-wrong-with-libertarianism/ there is not much difference between socialism and libertarianism. If we hear something and like what we hear we want to believe it,that does not make it right or true. The truth is Paul has not passed one thing he has put to vote, and how is he going to free everyone men and women if he cann’t get a thing done in 25 years. He has brought home the money for his state ever ask how maybe you should look into that. As for Romney his not much better then Obama just all the attack adds should tell you the kind of person he is. Obama has been lieing but his supporters don’t believe it eather

      • OB1

        You are correct.
        Time to face the facts. What the GOP fears most is what America needs most.

        Neither Santorum nor Gingrich can win the Nomination for one simple reason. Neither of them can collect enough delegates to win the Nomination.

        Neither man can be the nominee because neither one was able to get on enough states’ ballots to make a difference. (564 delegates that Newt can’t win ), Same with Santorum (over 700 delegates he can’t win ). And the media as well as the GOP is praying to god that the American people continue to remain ignorant of this fact for as long as possible while they try to come up with a strategy that will bury Ron Paul before Romney is forced to face him on stage alone and the commentators are no longer able to marginalize Paul by giving all the questions to everyone but him.

        Ron Paul and Mitt Romney are the only two candidates that made it on the ballot in every state. Romney will not beat Obama, he’s too similar except he will raise taxes on anyone making 40k a year or less in favor of giving himself lower taxes. Independents are going to run to Obama if Romney is the alternative.

        It is a two man race between Ron Paul and Romney for the nomination.

        It is also a two man race between Ron Paul and Obama for the White House.

        It’s time Conservatives and people with any functioning brain cells in their heads started backing the only real candidate that will beat Obama and save America. And whether you like it or not, that candidate is, by default, Ron Paul.

        The facts can’t be twisted to point in any other direction. The Delegates decide who gets the nomination and you can’t get delegates if you aren’t on the ballots. It doesn’t matter how much money gets pumped into your campaign by special interest groups. The facts are the facts.

        Fact : Gingrich and Santorum cannot win the nomination no matter how much they get in ” popular ” votes.

        Fact : Romney will fail epically against Obama in a general election.

        Fact : Ron Paul will decimate Obama on his Foreign Policy stance alone. Add in his Economic and Defense policies ( All 3 of which were policies Obama ran on in 2008 and abandoned once he got in the White House so no one would be stupid enough to believe he’s going to follow them in his second term ) and you have an un-beatable candidate in the general election who the bulk of the American people will vote for when they finally get a chance to see the man unfiltered and unbiased by the media.

        America is broke and the average American is tired of hearing about another war on the horizon and seeing more dead soldiers coming home in coffins for no reason…all the while the freedoms they are dying to ” protect ” are being stripped away from us by our own government…one by one.

        Obama has 0 chance of beating Paul and Washington knows it. The GOP knows it. The corporations that own Washington know it too so they instruct the media outlets they own to hide it from you.

        But now you know. Gingrich and Santorum are mathematically incapable of winning the Nomination and Romney can’t beat Obama in the general election.

        Ron Paul is the only choice we have. It’s just nice that, for once, he’s the RIGHT choice and not just the ” lesser of two evils “

        • http://aol Meg

          OB1, I am sorry, but you are off base. Paul cannot win the nomination. He is too far left on foreign affairs. No real American wants war, but we have to stay prepared, because we have many enemies, who do not like us. All of you bashing Romney, are not aware of what he stands for. You are listening to too much untruth. He is the one that the Demos do not want to get the nomination. They know Romney will beat Obama. That is the fact.

          • BH

            1. You win the nomination by getting enough delegate votes, not by having a particular foreign policy. That you don’t like or don’t understand Paul’s foreign policy proposals does not change the math.

            Ron Paul is not proposing that the US should not be prepared for foreign aggression. Indeed, we have many enemies, who do not like us. But constant involvement in unwinnable undeclared wars around the world does not make us safer. Quite to the contrary, it makes us the primary target.

            Listen to Newt’s foreign policy proposals for the Middle East. They are essentially the same: We need to rethink our policies completely as our past policies have been counter-productive and contradictory (we set up dictators and later cut them down); and our Middle East policies should not be primarily military. Both Ron and Newt are students of history; the others are not.

            2. No, Romney IS the one the Democrats want to get the nomination. Reason is simple: they get a liberal no matter which is elected. Proof of this? The main stream media, which is entirely liberal and supports the Democratic Party line, sided with Romney and declared him the presumptive winner even before the first primary was held.

          • Rene

            Meg, you are totally uninformed, you have been listening to the propaganda of the major media, it is very obvious that you are totally in the dark. Look at who has it right, RonW, and OB1, have stated truths about what has, and is going on. As well as Ann Wilson Kingsley. what most Christians (I am a Christian) don’t understand because their faith, though good, distorts their understanding of liberty, they fail to understand that God himself is the one that gives us the freedom of choice, and the constitution is the contract between the Federal Government, the States, and the People that guarantees that the government will not take away our God Given Rights. Most Christians want their freedom of choice guaranteed, but would have the government take away the same rights from someone they disagree with. Morality is not something that is between the government and a person, but between that person and their maker.

      • Ltpar

        Robert, while many of Ron Paul’s ideas are good, he does go postal on a few as well. As such, the country is simply not in bad enough shape yet to accept Pauls philosophy and he could not be elected President. However, that said, if by some quirk of fate Obama is re-elected the scenario changes dramatically. The country will hit rock bottom during the next Obama term. When that happens, America will need that tough philosophy to rebuild from ruin. Americans are spoiled, having had it too good for too long and we are now destined for the fall. Semper Fidelis.

      • Abigail Adams

        The problem with Dr. Paul is his nationally suicidal foreign policy. He believes that Iran is no threat and that they should have nukes, after all– we do! No. May that never be. No amount of domestic and financial improvement can override his positively deadly foreign policy. It won’t matter whether we have the Federal Reserve or not after Iran nukes us.

Paul is the anti establsihment candidate and has consistently been going after the establishment shill anti-romney who is polling highest. Newt is down so he leaves him alone pretty much. Once Santorum is down, he will focus on taking apart Romney on the issues, and it will be somewhat more gentlemanly since Romney acts in a gentlemanly way for the most part (but he is still Rombama) and Paul acts gentlemanly. So it will not likely get as charged as it has when Newt, or Sanitarium is polling high. That could change if they suddenly insert another “front runner” into the race like they did with Perry. In that case, I predict Paul will pick him apart as well, before taking aim on Romney.

      • Kansas Kahuna

        Dave….I’m going to paste a sentence from Texas001 comments, which should be ENOUGH PROOF to satisfy ANYONE, SANE AND INTELLIGENT ENOUGH TO SEE THE CONNECTION! I have followed Texas… comments and found them to be factual, and here is what he had to say… “Now Paul is running negative ads against Santorum in Michigan and Paul is not even on the Michigan primary ballot. ” Since I do not live in Michigan, nor have access to a ballot, I am assuming this is a true statement. If this is not enough truth for you, you better smoke some more grass and hibernate for a few months!

        • Kansas Kahuna

          Dave…further, after checking paul out on the net, going to give you the benefit of the doubt. Nowhere does it say who is on the ballot, other than Michigan’s primary is open to all voters, to vote for the candidate of their choice. This would mean that if your candidate is not on the ballot, you can write in a candidate of our choice. The only two that I find definitely on a MI ballot are Santorum and romney. If paul when through the formality of registering, he too would be on the ballot. I’m not wasting any more time on research!

          • kellys

            Buffoona, please do your research, as Martin Ridens said, Paul is on the ballot.

      • http://comcast.net Thinking Gal

        Again Dave, you’re blind. Why is Paul putting out all those anti-Santorum ads when he isn’t even in Michigan nor have any intention of doing so. If he wasn’t in Romney’s camp, he wouldn’t be spending the money trashing Santorum there. Methinks you Paulites are almost blaspheming, treating him like the messiah. There’s some kind of warped hold he has on you people and it ISN’T conservatism — not from the libertarian doctor.

      • ALLAN

        Sorry to burst your bubble but Santorum is not going down. America has become very alert and their assessment is a Huge Plus for Rick Santorum. It has been several decades since we have had a candidate for President with High Ideals;Knowledge,Wisdom; and Ethical Balance running for President. This is our chance for rectification of the disastrous programs that have come from Washington.

        • Rickoff

          Those of you who think Santorum would be good for America need to review his record, and here it is. During his time in the Senate, Santorum voted to:
          *** Approve the unconstitutional Patriot Act, and its reauthorization
          *** Give millions of taxpayer dollars to Planned Parenthood;
          *** Raise the debt ceiling five times;
          *** DOUBLE the size of the Department of Education through the budget-busting and unconstitutional “No Child Left Behind” bill;
          *** Start a brand new, unfunded entitlement, Medicare Part D, the largest expansion of entitlement spending since President Lyndon Johnson – creating $16 TRILLION in unfunded liabilities;
          *** Stand with senators like Barbara Boxer and Frank Lautenberg to pass massive new federal gun control schemes and regulations;
          *** Keep workers under Big Labor’s thumb by voting against a National Right to Work law;
          *** Send $25 million in taxpayer dollars to North Korea;
          *** Pass Sarbanes-Oxley, which imposed dramatic new job-killing accounting regulations on businesses.
          *** Exempt IRS union representatives from criminal ethics laws.
          *** Go against creating independent Board of Governors to investigate IRS abuses.
          *** Approve Sonia Sotomayor appointment as Circuit Judge.
          *** Make it illegal to sell a gun without a secure storage or safety device.
          *** Make Medicare part B premium subsidies a new entitlement.

          Santorum also made these votes:

          *** Voted against paying off the national debt ($5.6 trillion at the time) within 30 years.
          *** Voted to give $18 billion to the IMF.
          *** Voted to raid Social Security instead of using surpluses to pay down the debt.
          *** Voted against transferring $20 million from Americorps to veterans.
          *** Voted to allow Market Access Program funds to go to foreign companies.
          *** Voted to increase taxes by$2.3 billion to pay for an Amtrak trust fund.
          *** Voted twice for Internet taxes.
          *** Voted to allow gas tax revenues to be used to subsidize Amtrak.
          *** Voted to strike marriage penalty tax relief
          *** Voted to allow illegal immigrants to receive the earned income credit before becoming citizens
          *** Voted twice for a Congressional pay raise.
          *** Voted to impose a uniform Federal mandate on states to force them to allow convicted rapists, arsonists, drug kingpins, and all other ex-convicts to vote in Federal elections.
          *** Voted for Federal funding for anti-gun education programs in schools.
          *** Voted for a Schumer amendment to make the debts of pro-life demonstrators not dischargable in bankruptcy.
          *** Voted against repealing the Clinton 4.3 cent gas tax increase.
          *** Voted against requiring Congressional authorization for military action in Bosnia.
          *** Voted to increase spending for the Department of Education by $3.1 billion.
          *** Voted against a 10% cut in the budget for National Endowment for the Arts.
          *** Voted for taxpayer funding of the National Endowment for the Arts. And yes, this is the same NEA that became infamous for their funding of a “visual arts” competition in which “artist” Andres Serrano won first prize for his entry, “Piss Christ,” which was a photograph of a crucifix submerged in a container of what Serrano said was his own urine. Serrano received $15,000 from the NEA for this. That was 1987, and it makes one wonder why the NEA is still around. Probably because of folks like Rick Santorum who vote to fund it and keep it going.

          Santorum is also the “Lobbyists’ Best Friend”.
          He was rated #1 in Lobbyist Cash for 2006

          NDAA
          “In January 2011, Senator Santorum was asked if he would have signed the 2012 NDAA if he were President. Acknowledging that the legislation granted the President the right to arrest and detain US citizens, Senator Santorum then stated that indeed he would have signed the legislation..”

          I would have to say that Santorum’s horrendous record only indicates that if elected President he would promote and encourage more of the same out of control, unconstitutional, and fiscally irresponsible big government agenda which he supported while in Congress, and we simply can’t afford that any more than we can afford 4 more years of Obama.

      Ron Paul is not a racist, this was made obvious by the man who said that he was at the hospital with his wife at a time when racism much much more of a public mentality and no one would help them except for Ron Paul. Ron Paul does not use drugs, his push for drug legalization is due to the fact that the government has no right to tell citizens what they can or cannot put in their own bodies. It is amazing to me how ignorant people are to the teachings of the Founders, who by the way are the only reason any of us have the rights we have. And we are rapidly losing more and more rights each day. Ron Paul is the only candidate who has consistently taken the Constitutional position on every single vote in his record. He has never flip flopped, he has never sold out the American people, and he is the only one who has an understanding of American history. And for all the people who are gonna say that I must be a drug user for supporting Paul, that could not be any further from the truth. We are all supposedly concerned about government spending and yet we incarcerate people for simply using drugs, which many of our politicians do, except that they are above the law. The fact of the matter is that no other candidate comes close to the amount of military and veteran support as Ron Paul does. What does that tell you? Well maybe the military and veterans, like myself who has served in our wars realizes that they are not to stop “terrorists” which coincidentally was also a term used to blanket describe veterans by our administration, but actually a profiteering scam cooked up by corrupt politicians and the “media”. Romney will not beat Obama, nor will Santorum. Ron Paul is the only hope and that is why he has been slandered and has not been given coverage for his accomplishments. And Ron Paul has also been a victim of obvious voter fraud and rigged elections.

    • ardis

      There is no evidence Romney and Paul have brokered a deal.

      Bachmann rarely attacked Romney and the same tripe rumers were conjured up by the “Anybody But RomneyBots” & the MSM targeting her.

      Paul has made no secret that he has more in common with Romney (“I can talk to him”) than with “Fakes” Big Gov’t Santorum & Gingrich who he clearly has no use for.

      This is typical “Anybody But RomneyBot” hypocrisy. The same twerps who were gun-ho when they thought Gingrich and Santorum were conspiring to form an alliance against Romney are now blubbering over rumors concocted by Talk Radio & the MSM that they are about to get a dose of their own medicine. Boo hoo.

      Apparently, their crybaby supporters think Beltway hacks Santorum & Gingrich aren’t man enough to win their own battles so just to make it fair they need three against one to take on Romney.

      Even Team Obama knows who the GOP losers are in the GOP primary which is why they are spending millions in attack ads targeting Romney–NOT Santorum or Gingrich. Only the Anybody But RomneyBots are out of the loop. i.e., A-Grade lemmings.

Wake up and understand these people play for keeps. This is not some fairy tale. This is 2012 America and indeed the world. If those of you that spend so much time here on this site liking the sound of your own voice took the time to do a youtube search of RON PAUL and then read the comment boxes you would find that people from ALL over the world are hoping and praying that we Americans get it right and Elect Ron Paul. What happen’s here has worldwide ramifications. People out side the US get UNFILTERED news. I’ve been oversea’s and that is reality. America matters. The US GOVERNMENT on the other hand is seen abroad for exactly what it is. The IRON FIST of the GLOBAL OLD MONEY BANKERS. So put aside your stupid notions that ANYTHING is MORE IMPORTANT than ENDING THE FED and the strangle hold it has over AMERICA. And in case any of you have not noticed.

    And, no wonder Ron Paul doesn’t like Santorum. When you call another candidate “disgusting” as Santorum did during the Iowa caucuses.

    Ron Paul called out Santorum on his anti-gun rights and Planned Parenthood votes and Santorum didn’t like that very much. Kind of hard to call yourself a “courageous” conservative with votes like that, as well as votes for increasing the debt ceiling five times, The Bridge to Nowhere, No Child Left Behind, and voting against Right To Work legislation, too.

    And now Santorum is whining about being ganged up on by Romney and Paul. Hey, Rick. Your record is out there and everyone needs to know about it. And, you’re in the Big League now. Man up.

    • Texas001

      Romney’s record as governor of Mass is much more liberal leaning than Santorum’s congressional record. Romney was pro-choice, pro-gun control, began obamacare with federal money, believed in global warming, etc etc. Now he says he has reversed all those liberal progressive ideas and is a real conservative BUT Santorum (in Romney’s way of thinking) is not allowed to admit he made mistakes, as he has, and is older and wiser. As far as the Specter deal is concerned, Specter held a position on the judiciary committee (chairman) that required his efforts to get conservative candidates for the Supreme Court thru the Senate. Specter was a democrat long before he changed parties and goes back to the day he missed a Senate vote that allowed Al Gore to cast a deciding vote to raise the tax on gasoline and gave us a huge tax hike under Slick Willie. Specter is a snake alright but we know that for a long time.

      • OB1

        Really? Only Michelle Bachman and Ron Paul returned their support letters for upholding our 2nd amendment rights. Period. Santorum’s record on this issue:
        In the 90s, he voted to support the Lautenberg Gun Ban, which stripped law-abiding gun owners of their Second Amendment rights for life, simply because they spanked their children or did nothing more than grab a spouses wrist.
        He voted for a bill in 1999 disguised as an attempt to increase penalties on drug traffickers with guns… but it also included a provision to require federal background checks at gun shows.

        And then he voted with gun-controlling Democrats Dianne Fienstein and Frank Lautenberg to mandate locks on handguns in 2005. But worst of all, Rick Santorum has a storied history of bailing out anti-gun Republicans facing reelection. Rick Santorum came to anti-gun Arlen Specter’s defense in 2004 when he was down in the polls against pro-gun Republican Pat Toomey. Specter won and continued to push for gun control during his years in the Senate.
        He also supported and openly campaigned for anti-gun New Jersey governor, Christine Todd Whitman. The evidence is clear. Not only is Rick Santorum refusing to reveal where he stands on important Second Amendment issues, he has a long record of supporting anti-gun legislation and politicians.
        Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich have anti-gun records that rival Santorum’s record.
        All have refused to return their National Association for Gun Rights Presidential Surveys., except Ron Paul and Michelle Bachman.

      Joe…He’s here with us! Seeing Reagan in the form of Newt is far too complicated for many small minded GOP voters…A case of can’t see the trees for the forest! Newt is the closest you will ever get to a Ronald Reagan, and if elected, he may in two term not only equal, but slightly edge out President Reagan!

      • Martin Ridens

        News flash. The proposals Gingrich has put out will raise our national debt by 7 trillion dollars. Read that carefully, 7 trillion dollars, more than any other candidate, by far. Reagan increased the national debt but he was doing it to bankrupt the soviets and it worked. Gingrich is nothing like the man who said, “Government is not the solution to our problem, government IS our problem.” There is ONLY one candidate who remotely sounds like the first man I ever voted for and Ron Paul’s plan would reduce the debt by 2.2 trillion dollars. the only candidate who’s plan actually reduces our debt. And here is the link for the budget numbers.

        Ron Paul 2012 – The R3volution

        • kellys

          Thank you Martin, Newt is a neocon and not a Conservative at all, he has done nothing but spend our money and enrich himself while doing it. He might as well be a democrat, the same holds true for Romney and Santorum.

      • kellys

        Its not complicated, it is simplistically stupid. Newt is a RINO, the flip side of the liberal coin.

  • ?!? RandallT

    Santorum is guilty of wearing his religion on his french cuffs w/platinum links paid for by the kick-backs from his shady participation from ‘politics as usual’ past as a RINO.

    Paul is correct; Santorum is a (‘world class’) fake and not even presidential timber, at all.

    it is a pathetic field to choose from, once again, we are faced with an ultimatum of the ‘most conservative’ of the 3+1 Floogies. Go phigure. Oh so sad & oh so unfortunately very real.

  • Randall T Miller

    Santorum is a ‘sellout’ big time for sale fake. Paul is a Romney pawn-puppet. Perhaps Newt just might make it!? Time shall tell and soon too. What a revolting development this is, right Riley?

  • J.M.R.

    i don’t trust ricky boy or romney

    • Kansas Kahuna

      J.M.R…. Neither do most rational, sane, Republicans, Independants, or Blue Dog Dems. Same goes for paul…what few good domestic agenda talking points he possesses, are far out numbered by his insane foreign policy recommendations, and his domestic agenda of drug legalization and the removal of God from our currency, coinage, and the halls of justice. Let us also not forget his 9-11 conspiricy theory! This man is dangerous! If you liked Jimmy the peanut farmer Carter, you will absolutely love rp, he will give you that thrill running up your leg!

      • Kansas Kahuna

        Do not take the preceding comments to be against Santorum, just romney and his side kick paul. With that said, believe me, that duo is no Poncho & Cisco!

        • RonW

          You must be Ben Bernanke here incognito. It shows by just how much you fear Ron Paul. Is it time for you to go change you diaper yet? Only the FED and Thugs fear Ron Paul as much as you seem to.

      • David R

        So, KK, let me ask – since none of these guys is perfect, not even Newt – if someone other that Newt receives the nomination, who you voting for? The Obamanation? I would vote for a stinking piece of insole from a pair of tennis shoes at the dump before making that vote. So by all means, let them debate and punch and wail on each other, but at the end of the day, ANY of these guys representing the GOP had better get more votes that Obama the Destroyer, or in four more years, you won’t even recognize this country or the Constitution or our freedoms, and the WON’T be coming back any time soon regardless of who is elected later.

      • Martin Ridens

        Did you watch the last debate? Ron Paul would blow Iran off the face of the earth IF, (read that last word very carefully and then STFU) IF congress voted to go to war against them. None of this garbage we’ve gotten since WWII where congress “authorizes” a war by paying for it. Make them worthless, pandering, snotty, dirtbags in congress vote a declaration of war and then you would see what an appeaser Ron Paul is. He will execute any war congress declares decisively and then bring our brave children and loved ones home. Stop lying to people, you look like an idiot and it makes me mad.

      • RonW

        I would suggest you get outside this stupid article and click your WORLD NEWS BUTTON. If you would just how accurate RON PAUL’s predictions of 12 years ago were. In the meantime here is the real skinny on this Romney Paul deal nonsense. Peace out

  • John Galt

    I like Santorum and all he stands for. But the only electable ticket that can beat Obama is going to be Romney-Rubio. Romney to snag the independents, Rubio to garner the large electoral vote of Florida and the huge Hispanic vote.

    • EnoughStupidity

      If Romney wins …he does have enough money to bail us out. HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

    • Windrinker

      Only a “nutcase” would want another “unqualified candidate” in the White House. What!
      You haven’t had enough of the illegal foreigner!

      What is wrong with a born-and-bred AMERICAN President these days! The people of this country seem to have “lost it!” People are too worried about PC and have been indoctrinated so well they don’t even realize it.

      The majority can’t think for themselves, they “parrot what they hear..” No deductive reasoning, no skill at taking facts and coming up with their own conclusion. Most Americans can’t understand what they read and they are without common sense!

      Americans don’t understand that if they want someone to “do good things” for America, 99 times out of 100, that person has to be American…..with no loyalty to another country. Foreigners come here to take what you have for themselves, or send it back to their “real country.” There is no love for America when these people break our laws. They want our money….no discussion about it!

      Just because some foreign women come here illegally to drop their kids at this particular geographical-site, doesn’t make them Americans. It makes them greedy, illegal criminals, and they are treated as such in every other country, today. This was not the intent of our founders, and if anyone knew history or were honest they would know that. It is about a “liberal agenda!”

      Yes, I am on a rant this morning……Where has American Patriotism gone….we are about to be overcome with foreigners by their shear numbers …so much so that our politicians are catering to them INSTEAD of true Americans! People you are losing your grip on your own country! Or should I say…you are willingly giving it up to usurpers, “johnny-come-late-lies” that want to reap benefits of YOUR labors.

      • Windrinker

        And, let me add, that the republican party appears to be just another bunch of criminals, without integrity and unwilling to do anything to save this country. .All we have to judge their candidates by, if they are politicians, is their records. If they are not politicians, all we have to judge them by is how they have led their lives, their morality, their success, and do their friends and business associates respect them (not what the MSM or the party leaders think.)

        And, i don’t know if it really makes a difference who the republican candidate will be or what they say. None of them are talking about the problems in this country! And right now, none of them would win IF there even was an election.. The best thing would be to “purge Washington!” We need all NEW players.

        • David Stovall

          I agree, win the Senate and White House. Critical. Can’t agree that Republicans are as bad as Obama. See Rev. Wright “chickens come home to roost” sermon with the Obama congregation jumping and shouting with hate for America. Obama felt comfortable in that hate filled environment. No Republican I know is in that category.

          • Windrinker

            Well, David, I agree that Wright’s church is filled with extreme “hated for America.” The illegal foreigner is counting on that to help him destroy our country. . I didn’t mean to compare republicans to that kind of “in-your-face hatred “but they have not been our friends. And, for all they have done, and have not done, they might as well be going to Wright’s church. It seems the agenda has been pretty much the same, just delivered differently.

      • D Fowler

        Good rant Windrinker and very true.

  • Balto2

    I don;t trust any of them…. the only one I could see at the debates was Newt who did not get into a frey and gave knowledgable answers. Newt is the best choice…. yes he is from the Washngton experienced, but he also knows foreign diplomacy and what our homeland needs and wants. He is the closest to Ronald Reagan that we will ever find again and we need to look past his personal life and what he can and will do for this country that he truly loves. I find in my thoughts, when people squabble like they have in the debates when in office, they will do the same and nothing will be accomplished. Newt has proven that he is a statesman and above all the crap that is going on between Ron Paul and Mitt against Rick…. Newt is not a shark like the other three.

    • rebel

      Balto, you need to do more research on old newt boy. He’s part of the good ‘ol boys gang in DC, he’s a part of the NWO.
      Best you go look at the CFR(Counsel on Foreign Relations) rouster, you will find newty boy’s name on it. Thats all newt boy is, a “sweet” talker, he’s had lots of practice an schooling from the CFR, he’s even told what to say and how to say it.
      If you don’t have a clue to who or what the CFR is, it is the Illuminati. The CFR has created ALL wars since 1942…

      • D Fowler

        A couple of points to consider! Obama is not a published member of the CFR but remains a viable threat to our country. George Soros is however. Search: http://www.mega.nu:8080/ampp/roundtable/CFRA-Elist.html
        Granted we do not have a published list of the Chicago CFR branch, the only known branch outside of New York.

        The CFR are powerful beyond belief and do plan on forming a one world order (anyone that denies this objective had better learn to read the CFR’s own publications)…but they are patient having chipped away at our freedoms and undermined our economic system over many years. Obama is in a rush to collapse this country which makes me believe this may be more a racist/communist agenda, but I may be wrong. Many believe as I do that the CFR has total influence in determining who the next president will be. If this is the case, then all the media, money and power would be behind Newt…it is not, which can only make you wonder why he doesn’t receive their support. Is he perhaps because he is an unreliable rebel whom they cannot control? We may never know.

        As to wars I will make one point. There has been a war on planet earth everyday since recorded history, except for 21 days where no mention in writing was made. Most historians agree that there was war during these 21 days but no one put it to paper. If you dig deep into the CFR manifesto you will discover that part of the one world order objective is to stop all wars. Unfortunately, their utopia would also include sever population control that could only be achieved through genocide, the likes of which mankind has never witnessed.

        To make a very long story short, I am less afraid of known members of the CFR like the Bush’s, Clintons and Newt, than I am of those such as Obama, who lurk under rocks like vipers spewing their venom to kill us today. Follow the money and media and you will find the real CFR candidate.

    • Kansas Kahuna

      Balto2…AMEN! Your comments are on the mark. Lets see how many sensible people there are on Nov. 6th. We can and will see the light of day after making Newt the GOP choice. He will be the only one that can save this nation from disaster and complete destruction. God help us all if he does not represent us!

      • RonW

        Sorry KK but Newt is a nonstarter. He and Obama Democrats would spend more time in bed together than the FED would Allow. The merger into The one world government would take on a speed that they could not control as it would not give them enough time to make sure the outcome would be the one they want. They work under the s.o.p. “Leave nothing to chance’ Because chance is UNPREDICTABLE. They don’t like that. Ask Jamie Diamon

    • Windrinker

      Are you kidding!

      There is no bigger Washington insider than Newtie! Sure he can make some snappy comebacks, but he is “playing to you.” Newtie is for Agenda 21 and amnesty to all illegals.
      He will sell you down the river as soon as the first opportunity comes around.

      • http://COWBOYBYTE SQUEAK

        Windrinker, That is BULL, Newt balanced the budget 4 years in a row, create jobs, worked with both sides in order to get things done, etc… now you tell everyone on this page that this administration has done ANY of this..It is people like you, Democrats, Liberals, Socialists, Obama also some Republicans that are scared to death of Newt, they all know he will clean house & will beat Obama in the debates… You, Sir, need to get your facts straight !!

    And Ricky, dontcha know Ron Paul is the last person in the world who would do a backroom deal? You probably did plenty of backroom deals and that’s why you’re now finger pointing at Ron Paul, but remember… you may have one finger pointing at Paul, but there are four other fingers pointing right back at you. What a pathetic excuse for a man you are.

    • Truth Teller

      Then why has Paul done a backroom deal? It’s obvious he’s in cahoots with Romney. Besides, if he won’t make any deals, he’ll suck as bad as the current dictator!

          • Neville

            Paul has come out against Romney plenty of times – have you not seen his “Three of a Kind” ad? How about when asked if he could support Romney as the nominee and he said “I can’t see doing that”? How about when he openly questioned whether Romney was involved in the shenanigans in Maine? What does it take to convince you?

            Here is that I suspect is the truth. Paul, smarter with his money than most, is egging Romney on when he sees a vulnerability in the others (Perry, Gingrich, Santorum), and letting Romney with all his millions take them down with his (Romney’s) attach machine. Paul doesn’t have to spend his own money when Romney is doing just fine on his own. I say it’s brilliant.

    • paulz

      the only one that has NOT been bought and paid for by the international banking cartel is Ron Paul…is he perfect? No, but the other 3 probably have sold their souls to the international financiers along with their partner Obama. Ron Paul stands as the only voice of reason and common sense and the only man on that stage who i see as a man of principle, even if it makes him unpopular with some of those who may be uninformed.

      • David Stovall

        I repeat from above, if Ron Paul is the candidate, that magazine of his with all the racist comments , will be brought forward and will crush his chances. Add in his unpopular stance on Iran and Israel. I love him but that baggage is much worse than Newt’ s’. He is 100 times better than Obama, but he would still lose.

      • praypsalms1o9v8

        paulz…..ron paul may not sell his soul for a deal…..but he has lost some votes for going a long with romney….romney does not want paul to run a 3rd party……RAND …has said….i “d be honored to be his V.P……….every one is foolish to think that their candidate is perfect……doesn”t happen………we each must weed out the flaws and go with what we can go with…….it is just this kind of world……but please do not try to tell us how your candidate is great….you have just accepted what you can deal with…..

        When considering all the accolades Paul’s followers beat their steady drums and gums about he will win in a landslide.

Do you not feel like you are singing in the forrest and there is nobody to hear the music?

  • Politicalpony

    I’ve just got to laugh at this. Because Santorum makes this claim, it must be true. Is this the best any of them have on Ron Paul? This and there mis-interpretation on foreign policy? The real problem that the Media and the GOP have with Ron Paul is, if he wins, all the corruption stops! He opens the can of worms and all the theft is exposed. There will be no reason for most of Washington to remain. The sucking of money from the people is over. The Military Economic Complex, the EPA, FDA, The list goes on and on. Then we have all the Grants, and Ear Marks, should I go on? Pay off to companies such as Solyndra. They blow our money away in so many different ways, it might take 20 years to uncover and discover it all. I believe our biggest immediate threat is within not outside of our border. I would far rather be at war with a foreign nation than a government that was once the peoples but might now be fundamentally changed into something other than. Thoughtful and honest assessment can bring one to only one conclusion. Of the 4 GOP Candidates, there is truly only one man that will deliver us back to the Constitution.

    • RiverFred

      RP may be the best man for honesty and our constitution but his foreign affairs disposition sucks, how can you possibly vote for someone who thinks it is OK for Iran to go nuclear?

Thats is all the leftwing is .Third world mentalaty. Have we evolved above that way of thinking just to revert back to thirteenth centry thinking like the muslems think. They have been fighting this “war” for ever and untill we pound them back into that centry like they did before ,there will be violence……thats all I got to say about that…..

  • Bill

    Santorum has a lot of trouble with the truth. He also claims to be a conservative which the record shows that he is not. He often voted with the Kennedy liberals, favored several debt ceiling increases, raised taxes, voted millions to Planned Parenthood and the Dept. of Education. He favors gun control, backed Justice Sotomayor, voted against the Right to Work Act, and campaigned for turncoat ArlenSpecter. He is now preaching his strange religious values to the voters. His views on women’s issues are antiquated.

    “Wats up wit dat?” Nothing in the article supports or even talks about the headline, so-called support for Romney by Ron Paul. It only talks about some kind of dispute between Specter and Santorum. But who in their right mind would believe Specter over Santorum?

    Ya Spectre has a STRONG reputaion allright, as being a two-faced turncoat liberal RINO piece of crap.

  • Texas001

    “It would be improper to make a commitment on a vote before I knew who the nominee was” said Specter, the snake. The democrats, as Specter is now and has always been, start digging up dirt on any conservative Supreme Court nominee even before their names are announced. But if the nominee is a liberal the democrats close their eyes and vote FOR them, even if they are Mickey Mouse. Yep, Specter is a liar pure and simple and now is trying to be ethical, even after being “retired”.

  • Jerry D. Johnson

    Ron Paul is not only dangerous, he is mentally unbalanced. His ideas on defense and foreign policy would spell the end of the United States if they were ever implemented. Paul is completely off his rocker. Anyway, it is doubtful that Paul himself believes in the nutty philosophy he espouses. Otherwise, why would he team up with Mitt Romney. It is obvious by his demeanor and cumulative verbal assaults that he has sold out to Romney. He doesn’t even believe in his own nonsense. His behind the scenes deal with Romney probably involves his son Rand becoming the Vice Presidential candidate. As steeped in ignorance as he is, Paul knows his own campaign is destined to fail. Yet he continues to spout his gibberish to uphold his unholy bargain with Romney, and to hurt the two other legitimate candidates. How can anyone have respect for this sleazy old man. His only real constituency is on the funny farm.

    If you have been tuned into these debates and haven’t picked up on the hands off approach that Mitt and Paul have toward each other I am not sure what you have been watching. Every time someone makes a run at Mitt, Ron Paul is there to attack. I don’t know what kind of a deal they have struck but there is really no doubt that Ron Paul is carrying Mitt’s water.

  • Allen

    Ron Paul actually won Maine by slightly over 200 votes.
    But the GOP establishment declared Romney the winner with only 90% of the vote counted.

    The GOP establishment also knew that Santorum won Iowa much sooner than when it was finally reported.

    I can’t imagine any scenario where Ron Paul would quietly forfeit the stage to claim a victory unless it would involve some sort of deal or agreement. And not saying one negative thing about Romney pretty much puts the icing n the cake.

    If you have a, “not real serious candidate,” on the stage during a debate where the time is proportional, who is also backing another candidate and attacking the other two, the debate becomes an unethical scam.

  • DH

    Specter is a rino and doesnt even belong in the republican party. I would not be surprised to find that all that he learns in republican circles gets reported back to his liberal democrat friends like a spy would do. His idea of a qualified supreme court judge is really questionable when viewing Obamas choices and his backing for them, the worst two appointments of any president in memory, socialists.

  • 9thID

    Just as many Americans were duped into voting for the Hoax & Chains mantra of Obama, it is a tragedy that some conservatives are of late being snookered with a similar tactic from Ron Paul. As history shows, Liber-als and Liber-tarians are two sides of the same coin of Libertinism/anarchism. Liber-alism leads to the tyranny of Collectivism and Liber-tarianism to the tyranny of Anarchy.

    Of the three major policy platforms, Social – Fiscal – National Security; Liber-als & Liber-tarians basically agree on Social & National Security policy. Their main disagreement is over Fiscal policy. Further proof of this is, recently Liberals like Jon Stewart, Barry Manilow, Marxist Oliver Stone-d, and Snoop Dog have all embraced Ron Paul. Ron Paul also votes with the likes of Barney Frank, Socialist Dennis Kucinich, et al. on Liberal issues. Paul also voted with Liber-als to force homosexuality upon our combat troops during a time of war, and joining with Bill Ayres, Code Pink, and Michael Moore in calling the gay WikiLeaks traitor Manning a “true hero and patriot”.

    The Liber-tarians, just like their Libertine cousins, resent our Judeo-Christian heritage and try to revise it & our Founders as being amoral, and our Constitution as the chaotic Articles of Confederation. However, once the façade is cleared away, many self-described Liber-tarians are actually exposed as secular humanists, agnostics, supremacists, or Dominionists.

    Murray Rothbard, the mentor of Ron Paul and Lew Rockwell, has been described as the Saul Alinsky of the Right. I disagree with the “Right” part of that statement, for as described above, Liber-tarians agree on more issues with Liber-als than Conservatives. Rothbardian Liber-tarianism, like Liberalism, springs from the well of anarchism. Murray Rothbard was a self-hating Jew and atheist like George Soros. This also explains Paul’s infamous “newsletters”, the movement’s attraction for anti-Semites of all sorts, and policy of appeasement towards jihadists.

    Ron Paul is also known as a “Voluntaryist” as shown by Paul’s own words on video. Internet search it today, as this is openly discussed by Liber-tarians online. Then checkout Paul’s “Lord of the Flies” vision for America on display at the annual Liber-tarian event called PorcFest: tinyurl (dot) com/7yqhozr

    We need a new American Revolution to restore Reaganesque conservatism, but not the French Revolution being called for by Ron Paul.

    “Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” – John Adams

    “Liberty may be endangered by the abuses of liberty as well as the abuses of power.” – James Madison

    “There is a natural and necessary progression from the extreme of anarchy to the extreme of tyranny; and that arbitrary power is most easily established on the ruins of Liberty abused to licentiousness.” – George Washington

    • liberty4all

      So sad you are so misinformed. Paul simply wants to follow the constitution.. call that whatever you will but he’s the last of the true statesmen that see how far we’ve gone off track & knows that by restoring our founders vision we can move forward as the country we once were and expose the corruption. Its insane to think we are doing ourselves justice by spreading our military so thin fighting corporate wars with no end. When & why did america become such warmongers? Is that “christian” to tell everyone else how to live. when we need to look at the spec in our own eye? Regan did not have a balanced budget & our debt rose… we need someone better who can restore our liberty, follow the rules, get government out of your business &our bedroom, reestablish a legit currancy and protect our country FIRST.

  • Love USA

    I am sorry that we have so limited choices on the Republican side.
    If, however, Obama gets reelected we lost our great great country.
    Obama seems to be sold to something that looks more and more
    like communism.
    And I understand that some people voted for this President and are
    trying to see the good that he did. (Not the ones he promised to make
    you vote him in.)
    Santorum, on the other hand can’t be chosen because he never did
    anything in his life other than being a LOBBYIST. Newt Gingrich
    is also a lobbyist. Both show their political records but not the true
    records. And don’t forget: there are 18,000 lobbyist in DC !
    I don’t necessarily care much for Dr. Paul but he is a beight man.
    Since President Reagan can’t participate and Donald Trump seems
    not interested we will need to accept Rumney as the best alternative.

    BECAUSE THE BANKS, THE WALL STREET, BUT BECAUSE THE

    I will vote for nobody BUT Ron Paul.
    He IS the ONLY candidate that can beat Obama.
    And he is also the only candidate that follows the constitution and upholds his oath of office.
    And he has been doing that for twelve terms in congress. That is quite a record.
    Support the troops…the troops support Ron Paul.
    So…support Ron Paul.
    Ron Paul or not at all.

    I wouldn’t buy an apple from Arlen Spector. I recall he said that he would never switch parties. Swore on it! Yet, we know what happened! Santorum is further tarnishing a dubious legacy. I have no doubt that he would have sided with liberal Democrats on those Supreme Court appointees. Santorum’s endorsement of “snarlin’ Arlen” likely saved both Roberts and Alito.

    I am gravely disappointed in Ron Paul. While his ideas on foreign policy scare me, I do respect them. And him! Until now! For him to get in bed with Mitt Romney blows all credibility. I hope the young people will see this an abandon him. They deserve better. Romney has proven throughout his career that he is interested in only the very wealthy, big banks and Wall street. He is not electable. A vote for him is essentially a vote for Obama.

  • DeMenace

    As a Ron Paul campaign volunteer, Santorum is mad that Paul joined forces with Romney!
    Ron Paul was Reagan’s campaign manager, and we had the best years of growth, and every enemy country in the world was afraid of Reagan! I’m not saying Reagan did not have his faults , but at least Dr. Paul knows what a strong country means! Romney and Paul have not attacked each other since the debates began! Romney came out and said he will make America strong again by doing what Reagan did, which the last 3 idiot presidents did not or currently doing! Rebuilding the MILITARY! China is doing now, what Reagan did to the Russians, outspending us militarily! China’s newest cruisers can wipe out half of our crumbling war ships, not counting the submarines that we do not know about! Americans better stop listening to the BULLSH*T coming out of Washington! Paul also believes in a STRONG America, and I agree that we need to stop fighting everybody else’s wars at the expense of our troops and our TAX DOLLARS…What is happening in Afghanistan is a prime example! Ask yourself this question; If you were president and Afghanistan’s military killed your soldiers and remember
    you are the COMMANDER in CHIEF of the Military….these are soldiers of Americans which you SWORE UNDER OATH to protect……WHAT WOULD YOU DO? The last thing I would is apologize to the Afghan government … what Obama did, was commit TREASON again, to those soldiers families and to the military and to AMERICA!
    Lastly Paul is far from racist, Blacks and Whites and Hispanics across this great country are supporting him! QUIT LISTENING TO OBAMA’s and his ANTI-AMERICAN regime about our TRUE HEROES! I don’t like Romney, but I like his Reagan stance on building up our military, which means getting people off OBAMAFARE and puttting Americans back to work!
    ROMNEY/PAUL 2012 RESTORE AMERICA! I could vote that ticket HOW ABOUT YOU?

  • Trevor Myers

    Ron Paul has not sided with Romney. He’s just trying to get it down to him and Romney. He thinks he can beat Romney after outlasting Santorum. Paul would most likely chose my gun of a choice the circuit Judge. That being Judge Andrew Napalitono. They’re playing you people.

  • Lou

    I will VOTE for MITT ROMNEY, however I do respect Ron Paul… both are honest…If you look back at the some of the first debates Paul did put Romney down….They are both men you can trust….WOW how different would that be…to have some one in the GOV who tells the truth. That will never come from Newt or Rick…both have been in Gov to long…I will VOTE for MITT ROMNEY

  • Dale Richardson

    While I agree that there was an alliance between Romney and Paul witj an unknown ‘shady’ deal (a trick of the left), I believe Santorum was not fully prepared for the debate. Knowing he was definitely going to be THE target by others, Santorum should have been ready to combat those fiery darts that were coming. However, I saw Gingrich coming accross as the ‘good guy’ in the the debate and it shows Romney will do ANYTHING to win. Romney’s past should be a warning as to his future. His true character (or lack of it) comes to the forefront at a ‘win at all cost’ mentality takes over. Romney will”Run with the rabbits and hunt with the hounds” which is the definite trait of a washington insider and he surrounds himself with ‘those types’ as well. The list of so-called conservatives is a glaring indictment of washington control as they and the nedia are determined to spoon feed our nominee. If we are really sick and tired of business as usual, Americans must shout with a loud voice our disdain for the Obama administration, the present candidates, and hold them ALL accountable for their cronie washingtonism. Are we not to be demanding freedom and liberty? Are we not fearful of ALL of these insiders taking away our liberty? It is past time that selfish, self-serving egotistical, fascists, marxists, communists, tyranical, anti-American, huminist, progressive, anti-Constitutional, minorities to step to the rear and true patriots come forward in support of our founding principals. On which side of the fence are you standing or ‘occupying’? We MUST embrace the values of leaders such as Washington, Madison, Lincoln, Jefferson, P.Henry, Reagan, B. & F. Graham, and other Christain leaders.

    @9thID: You seem to be confused regarding the fact that Our Founding Fathers evidenced both a political and religious philosophy. It is also readily apparent that you do not like the political philosophy of Our Founding Fathers, instead opting for that of Reagan. You seem to be unclear regarding the fact that religious men, in order to govern responsibly, must have a correspondingly responsible political philosophy. You are also apparently of the ilk, the same as Santroum, that believes morality can be legislated. Yet, during the time that Christians have been taking this stance, our nation’s morality fell into deplorable degradation. Libertarians niftily solve the social problems by not paying for vice and the consequences of vice, but then you are probably a Socialist Nanny State Republican, so you are actually for what you profess to be against. Just a word about Reagan, he did not extricate the U.S. from the World Bank and the IMF, even though those ties caused the 1970s-1980s Recession. We do not need more of that acute “lack” of fiscal and economic conservatism from our political leaders. It is killing our country.

    Santorum lied about Ron Paul in a debate when he called Ron Paul a liar for exposing the claim that Santorum was named among the most corrupt Senators in Washington in 2005-2006 by CREW http://www.citizensforethics.org/pages/category-results/c/rick-santorum. Now, Santorum is again lying about Ron Paul by claiming a Romney-Paul alliance. Ron Paul and Romney are on opposite ends of the political spectrum. Romney is the most Progressive Republican in the race, and Ron Paul is the most Conservative. Obviously, both Romney and Ron Paul are vying for the votes in the middle – the middle being Santorum and Gingrich voters. Since Ron Paul and Romney are at opposite ends of the political spectrum, they stand to gain nothing by attacking each other. Romney voters will not vote for Paul, unless Paul wins the Republican Nomination, and Ron Paul voters will not vote for another Republican candidate besides Ron Paul. Since Santorum lies so easily about Ron Paul, voters need to accept that his promises are completely hollow. Santorum will say anything to get elected, which is why much proven “honest” Ron Paul does not seem to like him. And, by the way, 9th ID, are you also going to tell us that lying is a desirable Christian habit? As an Evangelical Christian, I am opposed to your misrepresentation and dishonesty with regard to Ron Paul and Libertarianism.

    Ron Paul’s philosophy is Libertarianism, the political philosophy of Our Founding Fathers, and Ron Paul is a strict Constitutionalist. Ron Paul voters are Fiscal and Economic Conservatives who believe in a small Federal Government and State’s Rights. Ron Paul is also an Evangelical Christian.

    • Nancy

      Ron Paul is a LIBERAL.

      The U.S. doesn’t make a ntional policy to APPEASE terrorists and our enemies.

      If Ron Paul had lived at the time of our founders, we’d have a British accent and still under the crown.

      No, I don’t advocate ILLEGAL drugs made LEGAL. I don’t advocate LEGALIZING prostitution so we can TAX it.

      Ron Paul IS the “crazy uncle” we tolerate but he can’t possibly win and if he did this country would have NO MORALITY at all. Look what ILLEGAL DRUGS did to China? KNOW ANY HISTORY? Look up the opium war. When there is NO MORALITY as Ron Paul advocates, the country falls apart. Look at the Roman Empire …

      • BH

        Ten years ago, Portugal legalized recreational drugs.

        The use of such drugs has cut in half.

        Making them illegal just makes it a high markup business where it profits pushers to give away free samples to hook people, particularly the young. When they are legal, with appropriate controls, there is no one to profit by pushing the stuff. We can focus on programs to help those who are addicted, rather than throwing them in jail.

        There is simply no constitutional basis for drug prohibition on the federal level. It required an amendment to the Constitution to make recreational alcohol consumption illegal. Alcohol is a drug. By nearly any measure, among the worst. Why then was no constitutional amendment required to make (non-alcoholic) recreational drugs illegal? Simple. It would be required. It is just one more case of the Constitution being ignored.

        Libertarians are not in favor of drug abuse. Getting high to avoid reality directly conflicts with the kind of free society of rational and self-responsible individuals we advocate.

        Actual, the historical conservative position is rather anti-war. WWI, WWII, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War were led by liberal Democratic presidents. In each case, it was the Republicans in congress who (at least initially) questioned the wisdom of getting involved. War is the health of the state. Big government liberals are always pro war. And the neoconservative movement was started by liberals who switched to Republican in the face of young Democrats opposing the Vietnam war. True conservatives, true Constitutionalists, heed the Founding Father’s warnings about foreign entanglements.

      • jack

        The war on drugs has killed more people than drugs ever could have on their own. Look at the history of drug prohibition, you will find it had very little to do with public safety and a lot to do with racism. For instance cocaine was made illegal because people said it hyper-sexualized black men and they would rape white women. That’s a fact. Pot was made illegal originally in southern states to get rid of Mexican migrants, that is a fact as well. The government does not care that you are on drugs nearly as much as whose drugs you are on. Alcohol and tobacco are both legal, both do damage to your body, much more than marijuana in particular. Marijuana has many medical uses, as a matter of fact the US government still supplies it to certain citizens who were “grandfathered” in when it became illegal. It was first made illegal nationally through deception, in the way of a tax stamp, because it was considered by the supreme court that individuals had a right to put anything they wanted into their own bodies. That is the ultimate civil liberty. The government however was allowed to exact taxes on anything they wanted to, so they said in order to grow or possess marijuana you would be required to obtain a tax stamp. In order to obtain said stamp you had to bring a sample of your marijuana to Washington DC for examination. So in order to grow or possess it legally you had to break the law, a catch 22 that was later found unconstitutional by the supreme court.
        The bottom line is prohibiting something makes it impossible to regulate, so as a direct result of prohibition and the subsequent war on drugs our government has made it easier for children to obtain these same drugs. It is easier for a child to buy any illegal drug than it is for them to buy a beer or a cigarette. If on the other hand they were legal, the production and sale could be regulated much like tobacco and alcohol, making it much more difficult for children to get them. It is also immoral to incarcerate people whose only offense was using a drug, if they also committed a crime against someone else that should be punishable. Our prison system is over run with nonviolent drug offenders, and since a large part of the prison system has been privatized the companies that run them make a huge profit off of these people. They are publicly traded companies whose stock price is dependent on the prison population remaining high. That combined with the taking away of your ultimate liberty (your right to control of your own body) is immoral beyond comprehension.

  • BH

    All of the “not Romney” candidates have spent more effort attacking each other than attacking Romney. Paul is not unique in this. Republicans in general are wanting a candidate less liberal than shown by Romney’s record as governor. Each of the three want to be the “leading not Romney”, who would might gain the support on the second ballot of the other “not Romney” candidates.

    Look guys, there is nothing shady or underhanded if, in fact, Ron Paul has concluded (quite logically) that although he is doing much better in his run for President than in his past two attempts, that he simply isn’t going to make it this time either. He is amassing enough delegates to prevent anyone else from a clear majority on the first ballot. Which means that the Republican nominee will be determined by two of the four forming a coalition, with the one (of the two) with the greatest number of delegates becoming the Presidential nominee, and the other, if he wants the job, Vice Presidential nominee. That’s the most likely way for it to work.

    Thus Paul has a real shot at Vice President. And as a very long term supporter, I hope and pray that he will make it.

    To directly address the issue — it is doubtful that he has committed himself to be Romney’s running mate. Why would he do so at this early stage, when the final delegate count for each of the four is so up in the air?

    On the other hand, it is to his advantage for the other three to begin to recognize the advantages of Ron Paul as a running mate. Think about it. In recent history, nearly all VPs have had reputations (deserved or not) of being dumb or crazy or both. It helps protect the president from assassination if his VP would seem from the perspective of a potential enemy to be even less desirable. Candor — a Ron Paul strength — is also a plus for a VP. He can deliver a message that the president himself might not want to say, but needs said. He would be a counter-balance to liberal records and leanings of any of the other three.

  • Gregory K. Sloat

    There is NO Ron Paul – Mitt Romney alliance. NONE.

    This is a desperate attempt by the Santorum campaign to find something, anything, that will “stick” to Ron Paul, that is of a negative nature. Do you think after decades of the best Constitutional record in the country that the good Dr. is now, suddenly, going to risk it all for a some sad, sick pairing with “Obama-Lite”?

    He would lose his support, because what his political enemies don’t understand is that it is about the MESSAGE not the messenger. They will never understand, because they don’t understand Liberty. They are shills for the globalist agenda, and we see through their evil.

    It’s RON PAUL OR NOT AT ALL.

    We fix this country, now, at the ballot box, or we’ll be forced by the criminals who have taken over our government to do it the old-fashioned way, and nobody wants that (except the globalists behind the scenes controlling their little political hack puppets, who have no regard for any of us).

  • Nancy

    Calm down Rick. Just because someone DARES to LOOK at YOUR RECORD and criticize it doesn’t imply a CONSPIRACY between Ron and Mitt.

    Rick, take a DEEP breath and LISTEN. Your RECORD is atrocious. Others are just noting that. You are a compromised “fake” trying to peddle yourself as the knight in shinning armor. It’s NOT working when one examines what you actually DID versus what YOU say about yourself. I’m not a Ron Paul fan but HE WAS THERE and he doesn’t lie. YOU, Rick DO LIE.

    Rick, if you can’t “take the heat, get out of the kitchen”. Rick, if you can’t deal with Ron or Mitt, what are you going to do when Obama rips into to YOU? Cry? Throw a tantrum like Newt does? What? Switch to a canned speech on social values when the topic is YOUR RECORD? Many people LIKE your social views but your RECORD doesn’t endorse what you CLAIM to believe.

Obama simply ignores the Constitution and the rule of law whenever it inconveniences him, rules as a dictator, and has always been a follower of Marx.

        Ron Paul was a complete embarassment before a national TV audience during the last debate. To accuse your peer of being a complete fake in that high pitched voice that Paul has, goes beyond the pale in presidential politics. Paul is already thought of as a disaster by the majority of American voters….Why should we allow Paul to spread his silliness to the rest of the world.

        • BH

          I see. We should vote for President based on the pitch of the man’s voice. And telling the truth — calling a fake a fake — is an obvious disqualification. Understood.

        • jack

          …and you are completely wrong in saying that the majority of Americans think of Paul as a disaster. In nationwide polls Ron Paul does the best against Obama. The reason being he has enormous support with independents. Independents are the voting block that got Obama elected. True conservatives like Paul because of his strict following constitution and fiscal conservative history. Republicans , Democrats, and Independents get behind hi defense of liberty. Who is against Paul are the chicken hawks and war mongers who gain power and wealth from the military industrial complex fed by the endless cycle of war

  • Desert Girl

    I believe, at least according to a newscast that I heard, that Paul and Romney have a personal friendship that started on the campaign trail and that their wives have a friendship as well.

    Rick Santorum is a seasoned crybaby. His top advisor has put forth the conspiracy theory of Paul and Romney. They should be very careful doing these dishonest things because, as noted above, it makes Rick sound like a crybaby when things don’t go his way.

    Rich Santorum is a 1%er. Doesn’t anyone do their homework here? He lives in a $2 million home in Great Falls, VA. He scammed Penn Hills Township for $100,000 in “cyber education” for his kids (they aren’t home schooled); when he was caught he only paid back $55,000. He lost his state by 19 points in part because of his residence issue. He became very wealthy after leaving the Senate by way of his lobbying efforts. His voting record doesn’t indicate a conservative guy.

  • Jeff

    I think the alliance is bogus however, as screwed up as our Federal Government and its your job to make sure it gets fixed or you lose yours and you can pick only one person from this group to fix it who do you pick? Hands down you pick Romney because he has the tools/skills, knowledge and experience to give you the best shot at it. So Romney is a smart guy and will only surround himself with the best to address the problems. So who do you appoint Fed Chairman? My bet would be Ron Paul who better to do that. Oh and by the way I spent my first 35 years in the pro choice arena because I didn’t understand the issues at hand. Once I clearly understood the issues and what was really going on in the debate I also became pro-life better late than never. So I cannot blame Romney for changing or hold it against him. He truly governed from a pro life prospective.

    Santorum is not a fiscal or small government conservative “only social”. He is running around defending his support of Arlen Specter. The truth is Santorum spent his career in the Senate as a power broker cutting deals and the like. As a Tea Party conservative I can’t vote for this guy as that is the crap that is most wrong with Washington. Santorum is a social conservative for which I give him much kudos but he is also a big government Republican. Only the single issue abortion voters should be able to support this guy.

    Love Newt and his historical perspective on things but I he has spent as speaker and in the private sector as a power broker and deal maker. Morally is all wrong for our movement and he is running around making promises with more government spending. Can’t support that either.

    Ron Paul, god love him is on the mark on monetary policy, he and Romney are the only ones committed to smaller government and protection of the constitution. Then that’s were I divide with Ron as President.

    Does anyone else wonder why the Democratic National Committee is running negative ads against Romney in a Republican Primary $600,000 in Michigan and Nevada? Debbie Wasserman Schultz attacks only Romney on the talking head programs never heard her even mention any of the others. Hum seems to me they would rather see Santorum run against Obama.

    Guess my vote will be for Romney!!!

      I believe you are right, Lou; and, it surprises me that so few posters here are able to appreciate the wisdom in such a move. It just seems like the workings of an intelligent mind to me.

      Could it be really be that those who see it as a negative thing just want us to elect someone too ignorant to see how to improve things? Surely none of them doubt that Rand Paul would make and ideal VP. I happen to believe he would, and eventually an excellent president.

      Rand Paul is young enough and in sync enough with his father’s attitude towards the Constitution to actually accomplish much in that area by building on the work his father has done. I also believe that the father knows that he hasn’t the necessary time left to do what needs to be done and would be thrilled to see that noble cause shifted from his own shoulders to those of his worthy son.

      It would be an unbelievably rewarding thing to see the son carry on in the position fought for so long and nobly by his father. Now, that would be a saga worth watching unfold.

      I hope it happens. America needs it: And, hopefully enough Americans will come to appreciate that need to make it happen.

    Look for a Brokered Convention to Put JEB & probably that Gusano, Rubio, who wants wide-open Greaser Immigrants from all over Latrino America. If Ron Paul goes along you’ll know he is a fake.

These Traitors serve the Rockefellers/The Rothschilds/The Queen/The Mossad & Israel in Treasonous No-Win Wars.

  • Rocketman

    After reading again the lies and distortions that 9thI.D. is again pushing concerning Paul, I have come to the conclusion that he or she is an Obama plant trying to keep voters away from the one candidate that can beat Obama meaning Paul. I thought that some of you might like to know about the “conservative” Santorum. Santorum has……….
    1) Voted to give millions of dollars to Planned Parenthood.
    2) Voted to raise the debt ceiling FIVE times.
    3) Voted to double the size of the Dept. of Education (No child left behind bill)
    4) Voted for Medicare Part D. (additional 16 trillion in unfunded liabilities)
    5) Voted with Boxer and Lautenberg for new gun “control” legislation.
    6) Voted AGAINST National Right to Work legislation
    7) Voted to send 25 million taxpayer dollars to the North Koreans.
    8) Voted for Sarbanes-Oxley (job killing legislation)
    Santorum should be the LAST candidate that the Tea Party should consider, while Gingrich and Romney simply can’t be trusted to do what they say that they will do while they campaign.
    That leaves only Paul who is honest, has been consistant and has a plan to cut the size of the federal budget by a trillion dollars the first year and balance the budget by the third year of his administration. There is simply no comparison. Paul is the only one that offers real change from the dark path that this country is on. Ron Paul 2012.

    Ron Paul is a dissenter!! He has never authored, nor has he ever sponsored a piece of legislation that has gotten through congress. He bears out the saying that if you can do, then do. If you can’t do…teach. He espouses things being done that can never be done and only exist in his idealistic mind.

    • BH

      Yup. Ron Paul dissents against all legislation which is unconstitutional. Which is nearly all. He wants less involvement of the federal government in our lives, and thus has not proposed legislation to increase its involvement. He pretty much only proposes legislation to undo or oppose other legislation.

      There is at least one exception to the “Ron Paul has never sponsored a piece of legislation that has gotten through congress”. His “Audit the Fed” did pass, although watered down (not unusual for successful legislation), and as an attachment to other legislation (again, not unusual for successful legislation). Perfect example of where the problems lies, and it isn’t with Dr. Paul. We need a full audit of the Federal Reserve. Period. The American people support this. The problem lies with the other members of Congress and the President, not Ron Paul.

  • Wanda Z

    Let me see? Who do I believe? Arlen Specter, who is trying to clean up his little place in history or Rick Santorum who believes God has a special place in hell for him if he lies.

    Ron Paul and Mitten Romney are both racists!!! Read what Paul has said about Jews and about Israel. He really loves Muslims and should just move to Iran, Syria, Iraq or Somalia since he hates Jews so much. Romney is anti-black because he is a Mormon and Mormonism has always kept the blacks as their target. Until his “daddy” ran for president as a liberal left-wing/communist/socialist Eastern establishment elitist Republican the Mormon Church wouldn’t even allow a black man to be an elder in the church. They changed that for his daddy Georgey Porgey. When he was defeated for the nomination by a true conservative Barry Goldwater he pitched a hissy sissy fit on the convention floor, stomped out of the hall, refused to support Barry and gave millions of dollars to Lyndon Johnson’s campaign. Both Paul and Romney will ruin the Republican Party. Let them start their own Nationalist Socialist aka Nazi Party and use Hitler as their model. By the way, I have never voted for anyone but a Republican, but if they are the nominees I will vote American Constitution Party.

    • BH

      Ron Paul is not a racist. If you are referring to some material in the newsletter published in his name decades ago, he did not write the material, was not the editor, did not read it at the time, and has repeatedly made it clear that he finds the material offensive. The editor, unfortunately, included a few rants which should not have been published. The modern equivalent is the editors of this blog, who may sometimes leave material in which would be better removed.

      Are you aware of any statements made by Ron Paul himself which are racist? I’m not.

    I wouldn’t believe Arlen Specter if he told me it was day time, at 12:00 noon.
    Now, there is a man that was/is truly confused, Hell , He couldn’t even make up his mind which party to belong to, but eventually ended up where he belonged, UNEMPLOYED.
    He is the Prime example of what happens when a politician stays TOO long in office. Another good reason for term limits.

      To: Old Faithful Geyser

      I agree wholeheartedly with your statement. The big problem is; “We the People” would be ignored (as usual) by those that represent us, because once they get together, they would definitely disagree with term limits as it is realized they have a good thing going… it’s called greed by corruption.

      The really good thing for us is that we can still vote them out of Office after one term; only if we stay vigilant of what they are doing in the Congress and the Senate.

      Old Faithful , Agree, Term limits should be one of the questions asked of all the candidates if they would pass a bill when in office…sure would love to know what their answer would be ! I have been for term limits forever, they get too comfortable when they have all those years in office, they think about their own re- elections , they do too many unethical things , get more perks & pay raises’, etc ! They no longer are for the American people , only for their self gain !!

    Both parties have botts that go into articles like this and plants lies and (agitate). They would be crazy not to. But none the less they are lies. They put words in Ron Pauls mouth and twist everything he says while paying a good dollar to black him out and keep his actual words quiet. Why people cant read his words for themselves and compare them with his track record is beyond me. As far as Im concerned I have NOOOOO interest in anything the rest of the GOP or the dems have to say. They lie so easily and teach others to lie and pay others to lie. Im sick of them.

    Like me; don’t any of you ever get tired of listening to our leading U.S. Presidential Candidates squabble with each other instead of addressing the vital issues that are destroying America? Surely, there must be other America patriots qualified as Candidate for the Office of the United States President?

    Most importantly; and knowing full well that we can’t depend upon any member of the U.S. Senate to abide by Article I, Section 3 (6) of the United States Constitution, why isn’t there any other leading Representative talking about the immediate arrest of the foreign-born Muslim communist agent dictator Mr. Barack Hussein Obama II, so we can nullifiy all his evil doings upon this nation and its people, rather than wait for the coming election that really won’t clean up Washington, DC, and the immediate Impeachment of all Communists currently occupying both U.S. Houses? Who is there left in America for the U.S. Presidency that will run it with patriotic ruggedness?

    Ever since members of the American Communist Party realized they couldn’t possibly deceive the American people as “Communists,” they selected “Liberalism” in the early 1960s as concealment of their true identity to achieve their goal in the end. And they succeeded. Just look at where we are now.

    MSG Correa: I sent you a post regarding the Communist Rules for Revolution, but I was censored. I jhad read those rules back in 1960-62, and watched them become legislation through the years and upto tofay, and is why our country is in this mess. Cowboy Byte doesn’t like some of the truths I’m trying to pass on to the people. I’m sure glad there are people like you, Ann Kingsley, and Pepper, and others. We should support each other in our posts. Together we an be an Army.

    • MSGT JOHN CORREA

      To: Maynard Merrel

      I’m truly glad there are still many American patriots that will listen to the truth as I have stated in my recent letter to the House Speaker John A. Boehner with a courtesy copy of my letter to Senator John McCain, in which, I stated in the following caption; years after attending an American Communist Party meeting in 1947; I wrote Senator John McCain….

      “Would you like to know how the U.S. Congress and the U.S. Senate became infested with members of the American Communist Party? The late Director of the FBI J. Edgar Hoover knew of it. The late U.S. Senator Joseph R. McCarthy of Wisconsin knew of it. The late Premier Nikita S. Khrushev of the former Soviet Union knew of it. The former KGB Agent Yuri Bezmenov who defected to the United States knew of it. Most Americans heard them, but nobody listened. I did! Why? Because I cared for my country!”

      Most Americans never bothered to learn what their Representatives are doing in Congress or the Senate. And those same Representatives left our Constitution and our nation unguarded with the dereliction of their Oath of Office, and that disturbed me a great deal.

      Sir, as a fellow American patriot, I hope the information I provided above will help to motivate you and others to demand the immediate arrest of the foreign-born Muslim communist agent dictator Mr. Barack Hussein Obama II as a “Saboteur.”

    In the interest of full disclosure, you should know that I’m someone who refers to Paul as ‘Ron “Blame America First” Paul’. I don’t like him.

    Having said that, if I have to choose whom to believe, between Paul and Santorum, I’ll believe Paul every time. That’s because, Paul’s only remaining virtue is his honesty. Like Jimmy Carter, Paul is a total loon. But even I have to admit that he’s an honest loon. As crazy as some of his positions are, Ron “Blame America First” Paul believes what he says and says what he believes. I cannot remember any time when he was caught in a lie. Santorum, OTHO, has no such virtue.

    If Paul says it, I believe that he believes it. If Santorum says it, I have to look at motive, before deciding to believe it. If Paul and Santorum make contradicting statements, then I have to believe that Santorum is lying.

            Sir, I thank you for your support and understanding of the messages I post. Sometimes I make mistakes as no one is really perfect, except for Jesus Christ, and I don’t give a hoot for those who might be offended by his “Name.”

            I always attempt to make every effort to conduct my research prior to any statement for which I render. Sadly, my sister is a flaming liberal as well as my niece who is a journalist and who’s college education or rather ‘indoctrinated’ brain were buried in concreate block so nothing ever gets through but socialism.

            Have you ever come across any person who says; “It’s my ‘opinion’ and I’m entitled to my opinion!? I use to get that ‘opinion jazz’ from my sister most of the time until I wrote her the following…..

            “There are two types of people that form an opinion based on what they believe; some for which they express without knowledge or question, and others by questions and conclusive evidence. For example; those opinions that are based solely on ‘beliefs’ rather than ‘facts’ refer to the mental acceptance of an idea, often a doctrine such as political or religious ideologies. These are the followers or the dreamers that form an opinion without any substance to support their ‘opinion.’

            Then you have those persons that express their opinion based on knowledge and the absolute conclusion which are based upon research and evaluation of a subject or person that translate conclusive evidence of the facts and truth to one’s own mind. These are the conquerors of absolute knowledge or the fact finders that express their ‘opinion’ based upon truth – the function of a man or woman’s reasoning mind.

            It is always foolish to form an opinion without the benefit of research and conclusive evidence to support the ‘opinion.’ One would have to see with the ‘eye of the mind’ to understand the expression of ‘opinion’ rather than rely on the two eyes alone which can sometime deceive the thought process.”

            SQUEAK, my niece and my sister gave no response to the above because they really had no concept of what an opinion really is. Their minds were blocked by the ideologies of the Marxist doctrine. When my sister recently told me she doen’t care for America, I told her to leave our country. I haven’t heard from her since. I will not tolerate any behavior of treason against my country from neither friend nor family.

    You actually believe anything Specter has to say. If you recall, he switched from Republican to Demonut when it was apparent he was going to lose the Republican primary. I am from Texas and Ron Paul has passed no legislation of importance in all his years in the house. You Ron Paul supporters may want to do some research on Mr Paul. You can start with his statements in 1987 in regard to drug money since most of you want to go back years on your so called research on Santorum. We get a Christian that stands behind his words and you react like liberals in your worthless rhetoric.

      MSTG JOHN…I could not help myself from laughing about your sister, as I had the same problem with a niece & brother- in- law…It is okay for them to express their beliefs , their knowledge, & untruths, but do not tell them about your beliefs…. I would get info from them about the Liberal, Democrats LIES , as I would avoid sending them anything what views the Republicans have to avoid a family feud but when they kept sending, then I retaliated & that ended a friendly relationship for a while which they came to their sense from what this MAD MAN has done… Hope all will end well with your sister….

      I agree with your knowledgeable comments as I am never too old to learn , but never pretend to be the smartest person on any of these pages but try to get my information out there to help save this GREAT COUNTRY that WE LOVE SO MUCH !! God Bless America & All Men , Women In Harms Way !!

    Stop the presses…… A reliable source tells me Mr. Gingrich is going to ask Ms. Nancy Pelosi to be his running companion they look and work so well together. Mr. Santorum is going to announce Mr. Arlen Specter to be his running companion they have such strong ties that go way back when Mr. Specter was a closet republican at least the two have those things in common

    When all the dust clears from the primaries, the total objective will be to unite and blow this Marxist out of the saddle. The empty suit has been a disgrace to the office and those who are bidding, have to join forces to remove this apologist and one-man wrecking ball out of the highest office in the country. The choice will be over Santorum and Gingrich. Romney seems to spend without end and can’t seem to get out of 25 percent bracket and Paul is a no-where vote. Just remember that we have to turn the “welfare state” around and that means working together and booting the Marxist out.

  • Nanette

    I have been following ever debate, and it is “odd” that Paul and Romney went after Newt the same way they are going after Sanatorium, not each other. Truthfully, the only one that can really shake them up in Washington is Newt. Is true, the old established Rep. don’t like him, why? Because he never put up with their “business as usual” either! The hog wash printed about him was just that! All the charges brought against Newt was from the Democratic party which was all false charges. He did not have to pay a fine, he payed part of his defense cost, not all on the American tax payers. He was not forced to step down, because of charges! He really is the only one available with his track record that could really turn things around!

    • http://COWBOYBYTE SQUEAK

      Nanette, I agree with you … like I have said Washington, Socialist, Democrats, Republicans & Obama are scared of Newt because they know he is wise how Washington operates & he will clean house…Obama does not want Newt to win because he is the only one that will make him STUTTER in a debate !!

    The Saturday Evening Post Magazine came out with details of what happened that fateful day on November 22nd 1963 by the Grassy Mall in Dallas Texas to the best of my memory.
    I have the Articles in a scrapbook that I bought in a thrift store for close to nothing.
    It show a test by forensic folks that took the same bullet that the Warren Commission later
    and the Gov’t Stooge Arlen Specter that still all claim to this day that one majic bullet
    killed Kennedy; when the test bullet shot thru a cadaever in the same place was totally
    smashed up. This article even show a suspect with a white ball cap running from the
    grassy mall. I don’t trust Arlen Specter and I don’t trust Obama.
    And I do trust Rick Santorum. I heard on the radio today with Glenn Beck from a Call that there was 200 + people in the room when Arlen Specter promised to Santorum so we need a faith thing here if an electronic recording doesn’t turn up.
    Mr. Clinton wants Romney to run against as Obama’s campaign director Bill Clinton stated
    that and “That will split the Evangelical Vote because Morman’s Don’t believe Jesus
    is God and the Second Person in the Trinity” .. See Dr Walter Martin’s “Kingdom of the Cult”.

    Santorum rips Ron Paul for Mythical Romney Alliance… This ought to be good!!! lol

    Way to go Santorum! Rip someone for something they didn’t do after you were ripped for a bunch of things you did do. ;- P

    I heard Ron Paul’s adviser (Doug Weed) say, “If you keep telling lies about me, I am going to have to start telling the truth about you.” This is what Ron Paul has done.

    What kind of morals do you have if you are supposedly against abortion, but compromise your morals and “take one for the team” murdering thousands of innocent lives to be a “team player”? Santorum, you are a FAKE!!!

    My God! You have just described the truth about mankind’s good and bad behavior on earth.

    When my children were very young, I explained that it is very easy to be bum, but it takes real hard work to establish your worth and self esteem in life. What will you be worth; I asked of my children?

    As for drug use; in my days guys were taking drugs because they believed it was “cool’ and made you a man. Just like smoking cigarettes. They were wrong! Coming home from a date I ran across a junkie in the hallway when he offered me to take a pop. Naturally, I said; “No-way!” And he responded by saying; “You’re a punk if you don’t take a shot!” I said; No! You got it wrong! You’re the punk because you didn’t have the guts to say NO!

    With all the marijuana and heroin around my old neighborhood, I have never touched any of that filth, ever! I always treated my body like a temple and not like a garbage dump. Men and women must always take responsibility for their own actions, and not lean upon the federal government for their own failures in life. They had the same opportunity as I did as well as others who sought to improve themselves through hard work. I never took a single dime from any of my fellow-taxpayers. I have always earned my living the old fashion way…. I worked for it!

    The $250.00 dollars I received from the foreign-born Muslim communist dictator, I sent back to the U.S. Treasury Department. Like I said; I don’t steal money from my fellow-taxpayers.

    All of our candidates are good people willing to sacrifice their time and money to help us restore this country.

For those of you that are Liberal implants spewing Hate your words will not be find root in those of us seeking a real change, seeking the truth and want desperately to restore this great nation to the position it was founded on. We have no perfect candidate but we have many good people so why not talk about the candidate of your choice and explain what his good qualities are and how those qualities and values will help us restore our economy and our military strength to become the country we should be. Many of you are wasting our time and yours by trying to tear down one or the other with false propaganda and personal hate. Many of you are taking a stance against these misinformed people or deliberate liberal socialistic implants trying to disrupt this process but do not allow them to get a foot hold.
