    The RNC was rigged, and horrible things were done for Romney.

    But don't kid yourself, the crap would have happened if Ron Paul were a Democrat.

    If you're still a member of the GOP, I can't be your friend anymore.

    Every future GOP caucus and primary is a waste of time and effort.

    The RNC rigging was of such a dramatic quantity that I had to come back.

    I have been warning you all about this, but no one cared.

    Have a good life.

      I'm a registered Independent and can only say now that the convention is over that it is time for Ron Paul's supporters to stop whining.  Paul has run for President as many times as Biden has.  It wasn't going to happen.  What needs to happen now is for the nation to unite and kick Obama to the curb where he belongs.  Four more years of his socialism and we'll be toast.

      Political zealotry is nice but at this point not needed.  A vote for a third party candidate is like voting for Obama.  That's factual because the numbers just aren't there.  Stop your belly aching and think like an American.

        Replacing Obama with an almost equally bad Republican is even more redundant than voting for somebody who can't win. Those who do vote for Romney for this reason don't fully understand the truly bi-partisan nature of statism in the united states and its implications.

        Voting Ron Paul or Gary Johnson in great numbers would at least demonstrate dissent. What you're saying by voting Romney is "more of the same please".

          Good luck on HubPages, Innersmiff. I'm pretty much done with it.

          For what it's worth, I'm voting Gary Johnson in November.

          For Liberty!

        Romney is a sack of crap and should be left out to rot like the rest of this country's refuse.

      Hi Evan. Nice to see you back here amid the fray.

      I just wanted to toss in a personal opinion. Political discussions are not battlegrounds. They are expressions of different viewpoints. Perhaps the saddest aspect of US politics is that too many Americans with different political viewpoints can’t still be friends.

      Peace, brother.

        When intelligent people on HubPages have been exposed to irrefutable evidence of a police state and still focus on popular media-prepared talking points instead of what we can do about it, libertarians get frustrated. I don't hold it against Evan for wanting to break away from that.

    Evan do you think that only the Republican party is establishment? Really?
    I am with the Frog in that Ron Paul was NOT EVER going to be nominated or elected.
    That isn't as much an establishment thing as a case of he has too many issues with voters.
    People aren't going to be comfortable with his legalization of heroin and personally I find his stance on 9/11 to be something I can't get around. He would not talk of it while he was campaigning as he knew the trouble it would bring him.
    Fact of the matter is I really have not liked our choices until the Republicans did the smart thing and got Paul Ryan. At least there is someone out of the four actually thinking about solutions.
    The Democrats hate and fear him because they know that he knows what he is talking about.

      Did you watch the videos?

      No?

      Yeah. That's why I gave up on HubPages.

    Ron Paul's epic attempt at the presidency has created an actual civil war in the Republican Party.

    It is NOT being talked about in the media.

    I'm sorry to hear of your frustration, Evan, but welcome to reality. I was a year older than you are now when I broke away from the two-party system, and started voting my conscience rather than the lesser of two evils.

    Rodney Dangerfield said in an interview that when he was young, he had dreams of changing the world. Now that he is older, he still dreams of changing the world; he just knows now that he is not going to be able to change it.

    As we watch the parties argue over which one truly is the lesser of two evils for this election, we might reflect on Einstein's statement that human stupidity truly is more vast than the universe.
