ooh, i know: because it just happened! (even cnn gives it the "breaking" label)

What did Romney promise/give him?

I hope he promised to give the VP nod to Rand. A Rand/Biden debate would be nearly as awesome as the Palin/Biden debate.

Really? Because sanity was booted from the GOP primary very early on.
 
2012-05-14 03:33:21 PM
Aw. Someone should go to that other thread about the RON PAUL supporter convention chaos and let them know they can stop gleefully masturbating.

I'd do it, but I just don't have the heart.

BECAUSE THERE IS NO RON PAUL TAG

...sounds like he's given up on taking the nomination, but not on hijacking the platform.

Full press release statement sans remix in here.

I am amazed at how many card carrying Libertarians here in Texas are so dedicated to Paul at the expense of Johnson.
 
2012-05-14 04:17:09 PM
I've already heard from some die-hard Paul loonies that he never intended to win.
 
2012-05-14 04:17:23 PM
Planning campaign strategy with white supremacists? Check.
Platform includes legal possibility of racial discrimination based on states laws? Check.
Platform includes more government control if you happen to have a vagina? Check.

VOTE RON PAUL, because *LIBERTY*

He's still going to be the nominee. That's what the media doesn't want you to know.
 
2012-05-14 04:17:57 PM
why this guy is so popular is a mystery to me.

MaudlinMutantMollusk: I didn't know they had volcanoes in Texas


Exactly. It's the last place anyone would look.

This. He didn't endorse Romney, and expressly encouraged his supporters to keep angling for delegates for the convention. He just said "I don't have the money to actively campaign anymore."
 
2012-05-14 04:18:27 PM
MU-HAHAHAHA!!
It's all part of the plan!
RON PAUL!
 
2012-05-14 04:18:50 PM
I'm hoping that Santorum and Paul both try to shake things up at the convention...do it for the lulz.
 
2012-05-14 04:19:01 PM
So they have all the graduation signs up in people's yards around here, Kids name and school, we were driving out of the development, kids wanted to know where Ron Paul was graduating from since no school was listed..

Told them he went to Crazy High...

Ron...... paul............ !.....

GONE PAUL

/well, hopefully
 
2012-05-14 04:19:44 PM
An announcement from Rep. Ron Paul indicates that the Republican presidential candidate will no longer actively campaign for the GOP nomination, but will continue to work to secure delegates at upcoming Republican state conventions.
 
2012-05-14 04:19:48 PM
Ron Paul is the gold standard on the Republican side.

And by gold standard, I mean an outdated notion that doesn't work well and isn't coming back anytime soon.
 
2012-05-14 04:19:49 PM
When they say his campaign had $1.8 mil on hand on April 1st does that mean his campaign wasn't in debt? Or can you have "cash on hand" but still be in debt (like me).

Not that I'd vote for Ron Paul but I find it interesting that Newt was bouncing $500 checks and Dr. Paul would appear to be practicing what he preaches.
 
2012-05-14 04:20:00 PM
I kinda forgot he was still running.

Romney won't nominate a guy that is on record as saying he wouldn't vote for the Civil Rights Act, plus has video recording of one of his supporters stomping on some woman.

2012-05-14 04:22:06 PM
It seems to me like campaigning is actually a way to launder money, why else would these guys have stayed in for so long with no chance to win?

As a Libertarian, myself; I hate to say it . . . but a vote for the Libertarian Presidential candidate is a vote wasted.

1. Change my affiliation to R before primary
2. Vote RONPAUL in primary next month.
3. Change back to independent day after.
4. Watch convention
5. Vote for Johnson in general.

Same outcome as if I had done nothing; president secures second term.

Underground lairs in Texas? Isn't that kinda risky with their aversion to indoor plumbing?

RON PAUL: `Who filled my hidey-hole with crap?'

paygun: I've already heard from some die-hard Paul loonies that he never intended to win.


Enlighten us as to what you have learned about Paul's actual intent.
 
2012-05-14 04:24:52 PM
Maybe he'll run as a third party candidate now.

2012-05-14 04:25:04 PM
I'd love to laugh in some Ron Paul supporters faces right now.

and then ask them if they have any weed to sell me, because... you know...

His whole platform was "Ruin America's economy but let people grow dope." Are we really surprised?
 
2012-05-14 04:25:49 PM
Aww.

Now I have a sad.

Can I have a Gary Johnson T-shirt please?
 
2012-05-14 04:26:31 PM
They really needed to slow jam this news.
 
2012-05-14 04:26:47 PM

Apparently Ron was unable to rise above Fiat currency.

why people support endless wars, the tsa, patriot act, ndaa, sopa, drug wars, erasure of the 4th amendment, etc etc is a mystery to me.
