Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

Ron Paul Won - Now It's On Them

I had to share this great piece by Robin Koermer of Blue Republicans. The points he makes ring so true.
In all fields of human endeavor, winning by cheating is losing.
In a competition, when someone cheats, he gets disqualified. The disqualification does not make the runner-up the winner. Rather, it reveals that the man who appeared to be the runner-up had in fact been the winner all along.
In the race for the GOP nomination for President, therefore, Ron Paul won.
As the New York Times wrote yesterday,
Delegates from Nevada tried to nominate Mr. Paul from the floor, submitting petitions from their own state as well as Minnesota, Maine, Iowa, Oregon, Alaska and the Virgin Islands. That should have done the trick: Rules require signatures from just five states. But the party changed the rules on the spot. Henceforth, delegates must gather petitions from eight states.
When Mr. Romney and the RNC cheat so blatantly, they make the game no longer about politics: they make themselves ineligible for the vote of anyone who cares about his own morality, his own honesty or his own integrity – regardless of his politics. And from a purely practical standpoint, they invite Americans to ask if they want to live in a nation governed with the same contempt for those who don’t toe the party line as has been displayed both in Tampa and throughout the primary process.
But as a Ron Paul supporter, I can’t remember feeling so invigorated and empowered in my cause.

Oh, and GET THIS from Lew Rockwell

Ron, Carol, and one of their granddaughters left the GOP snake pit yesterday afternoon, but the State was not yet through with them. At the little airport in Clearwater, 8 TSA agents descended on them and ordered them not to board their private plane. First, the pilots, the airplane, and the passengers would have to be screened in great detail, because Romney might be nearby. After a long examination of the pilots and their credentials, the agents said they had to check the plane for explosives. One of the pilots noted that the plane, full of aviation fuel, was already a bomb. Then Carol Paul, who has a pacemaker, refused to be screened, and an aide started taking video of the whole rotten process. At that point, the TSA backed down and let them through, to Texas and freedom.
That TSA surprise screening was probably the finger the Elite gave Ron for not having the audacity to show up. You guys do know that his name was attempted to be put in delegation by six states, but the RNC broke its own rules again  on the spot and wouldn't allow it. This is thuggery that would make Rahm Emmanuel and Axelrod proud. Keep voting for the lesser of two evils, ya'll --eventually you will vote us all into a concentration camp.


  1. There is no excuse for what happened. The Big Party branch of the GOP is more concerned with staying on their agenda than taking the time to go through the process of nominating a candidate, which is the purpose of the convention. The end result--Romney as nominee--would have been the same. The GOP had the opportunity to give the tea party/libertarian/small government branch of the party a platform and to be inclusive. Instead, they have angered a very important group whose support they desperately need.

    1. There are millions of dollars paying for the agenda to turn the United States into a captive, command economy. That's what Mitt gets paid to do, and what so many conservatives just don't get. A man that put in state-run health care in his own state will have no qualms about doing it nation-wide. The small government branch of the party is garbage to them. How do you "deal" with people who think you are garbage? Some say we'll just have to hold Mitt's feet to the fire. Well, how you are going to do that when they just changed the rules to give him power over who the nominating delegates are next time around?

  2. Obama or Romney - same revolving door of the CFR just the Republican wing of the Nazi Party. DOA.

    1. When you realize that there's nothing left to loose, that is a kind of freedom, so says Janis Joplin.

  3. Why the hell would Pope Ron Paul even attend the convention of a party he despises? What a fraud.

    1. Ron Paul used the rules in place to take them as far as he could go. The fraud is the blatant theft of votes which have been thoroughly documented in over a dozen states. Your loaded sentence is full of it. He loves liberty and these commie tools in both parties don't. It's just that simple.
