I Cannot Vote for Ron Paul

That is what Newt Gingrich said on CNN news when asked if Ron Paul does, by some divine miracle -gone bad- is the Republican presidential candidate.

Who could NOT agree with that? Newt is telling it like it is- reality - that Ron Paul is such a loony with ideas and concepts that would never attract sane voters who are middle roaders, whether Republican or Democratic. Ron Paul's has serious age issues and baggage issues about what others wrote for him 20 years ago in newsletters that are inflammatory at minimum. Even if you give him the benefit of the doubt about memory loss, it is still to dangerous to elect a loon like Ron Paul who has tried this before. His son, is totally a different issue and could be a presidential candidate in the future, he is much more rational and mainstream.

Ron Paul is just a spoiler in the election process, a waste of his money and time. He will NEVER be a serious candidate even if he wins the Iowa causcaus. Nobody takes him serious and even his friends privately agree with Newt Gingrich. Is Ron Paul serious? He is a joke among the Republican candidates no matter how serious he tries to come across.

In the end, the only real viable Republican candidates will be Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney and maybe Perry. Newt was simply voicing what most people think of Ron Paul. Sometimes, the truth is hard to face.

I have to say, I would and will vote for Ron Paul in a New York minute, and have sent him ALL of my online earnings this year, and I am definitely not crazy. To me, he represents the only opportunity we have to rescue ourselves from the morass in which the the self serving politicians from both sides of the fence have landed us. Read his books. They make a WORLD of sense!

Brett, Even if you are right, your money is still not well spent.That is the reality.

John Stewart and Bill Maher don't think that Ron Paul is unelectable or looney.

But don't take anyone's word for it. Do the research yourself, and by research I don't mean watch CNN.

Yes, I know there are diehard fans of him-just like before-this is no different.

I agree with you, Old Paul is an old retread which could turn out to be the un-imaginable, something even WORSE than what we have now!

No, you cannot trust CNN, or Yahoo ... but sadly, neither can you trust Fox, and many think they can. The BBC is an interesting read, though ... you just have to dig to learn what's really going on.

Well, IMO, he is just too fringe for me.

Congratulations, Perry! You believe everything your government tells you to. You make us all proud to be American. Now go back to sleep.

From a college campus perspective, I see plenty of support for Paul. That isn't to say I support him (separating too drastically into state-run versus federal-run system will lead to extreme internal issues).

I say, stop watching the news! It's all biased. Use the AP at best, read records and votes and look for the candidates explanations for voting in certain ways. The BBC is usually okay. News has a slant, because it has specific audiences to cater to. The larger the audience (hopefully), the less slanted news will be (again, hopefully).

yes, most news does have a spin on it, but it is not drastic, IMO. At the end of the day, the race will be between Romney v. Obama. Paul's popularity is is like a one hit wonder, we'll see.

Greeting Perrya,

You article is very interesting. I agree with the commenter that stated that the news is bias, however it is owned by the rich that seek to be richer by clouding the issues and speaking to our own bias. Ron Paul is clever in making money if someone is sending all of their money as one commenter acknowledged. The man is already rich why does he need other people's money which leads me to believe this person is confused or crazy. I can understand sending donations to help the campaign but all your money makes me wonder hard about the message that person received. It seems Ron may have a cult follower. It good to see that their are intelligent people are sharing quality information about the inappropriate republican villains trying to buy the presidency.

Please check out my latest hub: http://hubpages.com/politics/Bill-Maher-Love-him-o... and tell me what you think of Bill Maher

"Nobody takes him serious," you say? Who is this generality of "nobody?" And upon what do you base your idea of "loon?"

@Perrya, this is one of your weakest articles, and not because I disagree with you. I enjoy good debate, but this is lousy!

Who would you vote for if you had a choice between Hitler or Stalin? My latest hub explores this puzzle. And that's the choice being given to us by the Corporate Party media.

You know, it's hard to imagine how much the media distorts things until you've lived outside the country for a few years. I didn't believe what I'd heard before. I had bought into their lies too much.

If you review history carefully, you'll see some of the same things going on in America that happened in Germany during Hitler's rise to power. The most heinous is that of the destruction of the Constitution. Unlike Hitler's brash one-stroke elimination, we get to see it nibbled away, eroded by one president after another.


What's crazy about loving the Constitution? Romney, Gingrich and Obama would continue the shredding of our precious founding document. It's starting to look like Gulag America, Inc. I'm not so sure I ever want to return, if this keeps up.

What's crazy about wanting a government that lives within its means and stops spending our money like drunken pirates with a stolen credit card? Under both Bush and Obama, the national debt Balloon skyrocketed.

What's crazy about not wanting an international bully for a country -- an Evil Empire? What's crazy about wanting a strong military, but at home!?

Are you basing your "taking serious" comments on the Corporate Media? What a joke. During the 2nd caucus (Maine), Ron Paul was a close second, despite voting fraud! The media mentioned #1, #3 and #4, and this is only one of many examples of their "slant" on things.

And both Iowa and Maine were heavily fraudulent! Lost votes, ignored votes and changed votes. One precinct worker was so upset he filed an affidavit because the state leadership would not correct the votes they had changed. And the fraud didn't stop there. The "establishment" had one precinct chairman arrested (St. Charles, MO) because he was supporting Ron Paul. The official charge? Trespassing? So why didn't they arrest the other hundred or so delegates? Don't be an idiot, @Perrya. We're losing our precious land of the free and home of the brave, and you're bickering about nonsense.

Ballot stuffing by Romney supporters (caught on video), Romney supporter violence (some caught on video) and more shenanigans that make me embarrassed to be called "American."

If you're truly interested in America, you'll do a more in-depth investigation, excluding entirely the Corporate Party media. YouTube might be a good place to start. You get all kinds there, but there's enough truth to shake your world. Try WXIX Fox19, "Reality Check" with Ben Swann, out of Ohio. His coverage of the GOP process is a blistering indictment of this corrupt process.

And why would the "establishment" have it in for Ron Paul? They're afraid he might shine too bright a light on their evil.

The door on liberty is closing. The elite 1% would just as soon see you and the rest of the 99% as slaves. We're almost there. The year, 1913, started the ball rolling with its debt-based currency and a private "Fed" bank which only made the situation worse by manipulating the currency into successive waves of boom and bust, letting the insiders snatch up valuable property in the wake of the carnage.

And the elite have used the Problem-Reaction-Solution tool to lead the lambs to slaughter time-and-time-again, starting with WWI. It's called "false flag" operation, and if you check out Operation Northwoods (1960s), your blood should chill at the fact that our top military leaders even suggested killing innocent Americans so that we could have justification to go to war with Cuba.

And 9/11? Don't even think for a second that the "Conspiracy Theory" of George W. Bush has even a shred of truth in it. The Bush family had far more motive behind 9/11 than the CIA's Al Qaeda ever had. Two Bush family members ran the security company which oversaw the World Trade Center. Bush Sr. was having a meeting with the Bin Laden family and Saudi royals on 9/11. And steel-frame buildings do not collapse at free-fall speeds without controlled demolition. When did terrorists have weeks of unfettered access to all 3 buildings?

The bottom line? We're being played for suckers! Could this be the types of things talked about at the recent Bilderberger meeting in Chantilly, Virginia? One eyewitness who happened to sneak into the ultra-secret meeting of industry moguls, top bankers and world government leaders and overheard a couple of these top guys talking about taking Ron Paul out of action (assassination). They're scared. Their Corporate Media avoidance and downplaying and slandering of Ron Paul hasn't worked well enough. It may be time for another JFK maneuver. Their secrets (the type of thing JFK warned us about) are being exposed.

Ron Paul, 2012! Help legalize the Constitution!

Wow, very long winded. But, America spoke. No to Paul.

All the people who were tricked by Ron Paul have been TAGGED for arrest!

You have shown yourselves to be a threat to the cabal and therefore must be eliminated!

Any FOOL who thinks there are real elections in the USA is out of touch with reality!

There have been no real elections in the US for decades.

The Bush/Clinton Cabal run this joint and Obama is their last puppet to bring this nation to ruin as they hand it over to their masters from Russia and China.

We are about to go into WWIII and we are going to lose.

Expect an EMP attack on the US and a few weeks after troops from Russia and China will come in and take control.

It is over dumbasses. There will be no (fake) election as Obama is the last President the USA will ever see as a nation.

All the Ron Paul thing was for was to take the money from anyone who is in opposition to the cabal and to ID anyone who will be a threat to the coming masters.

If you are tagged as a Ron Paul supporter in any way you are now tagged as a threat to the cabal and will be hunted down like dogs to be killed by the troops from Russia and China.

All of that will happen as all of our troops are tied up in the middle east and Korea fighting WWIII and the cabal leaders..Bushes..Clintons..amd their minions will all be safe in ther south american compounds while we are all slaughtered. (population reduction)

It is over.

Best of luck to everyone.

There is not much time left before they shut down the net and we lose the grid...so whatever money you Ron Paul terrorist have left...you may wana buy some food and preps.

I'm tagging myself as a Ron Paul supporter, just in spite of your bullshit.

Choke on your own bullshit, troll.

Bullshit IS bullshit, but Paul did nothing for the Republicans or his own party. He reminds me of Pat Paulson, a comic, who ran for president long ago.

Carl 4 years ago

Actually, the Ron Paul patriots are going to join forces with china and russia and usurp the cabal.

your incorrect assumption is that china would side with THEM.

the cabla is EVERYONES enemy. In fact, I think the time is short for THEM.

Now, everyone seems to have at least some awareness of their agenda, they cannot hide anymore.

9/11 fucked them.... it woke everyone up.

And here I bet they thought 9/11 was a WIN for them; thinking it brought the NWO

think again assholes.

9/11 actually is resulting in the collapse of elitist faith based institutions.

At a typical campaign fund-raising event in New Hampshire last week, one of our covert operatives was able to capture a picture of Congressman and Presidential hopeful Ron Paul actually cooking a baby with his Reptilian heat-vision. The child's mother, a devout Mason like Paul, said she had reared the boy to the delectable age of 3 years and had hoped to meet Paul so he could have the honor of cooking, and later eating, the child.

Dr. Paul, who is destined for failure in this year's Republican primary elections in spite of a massive army of obedient followers (both Human and Robot) on the Internets, tries to cook at least one small child this way at every fundraiser. As you can see in the picture, Paul supporters accept this sort of behavior as normal.

Speaking calmly as he roasted the boy, whose name has been withheld, Dr. Paul said, "I particularly like white children -- their souls are more full of light than the smudgy ones."

Heat-Vision is only one of the Reptilian magic tricks Dr. Paul likes to entertain guests with. His favorite unholy power is his ability to take orphans and other wards of the state, pass them through a special wine press, and turn them into campaign contributions. "That's gotten a lot easier since the advent of the Internet," Paul says, "Before the Internet, nobody would believe anyone would actually contribute monetarily to my campaigns -- but with millions of people now shouting my name on every message board, I don't have to come up with any convincing lies anymore to explain all the extra cash!"

You want the truth! You cannot handel the truth. Paul is the only candidate that tells the truth. The US gov is $222 trillion in debt (unfunded liability). Romney, Bush, McCain none of the choices we have had told the truth.

You will be more accepting once the great default of our government starts. I wish you well but you must unlearn much of what you think is correct.
