That's the secret.... Ron Paul is ALWAYS angry.

Did you make legalization of pot one of your main planks?!?! Have you demanded the return of the gold standard? Have you promised to return all troops to US soil?

If you didn't answer hell yes to all of these question you pissed off all 123 Ron Paul supports that will vote in November

I have a buddy who is a huge Paul supporter. He went to Paul's rally in Florida, he donates time and money to his campaign, he ruins nights at the bar with his endless political talk. If you joke around about Paul you get lectured for 20 minutes.

I can understand where Team Romney is coming from.

It's interesting what they're doing in Tampa. Shows that Romney will do anything to get what he feels he deserves.

Actually, I believe Romney, for once. RONPAUL supporters are freaking unhinged.

The lady they had announce the Minnesota votes during the roll call was funny. Something along the lines of "Minnesota, where we have fair elections, casts the majority of its votes for Rep. Ron Paul!"

They just finished rollcall at the RNC. The official vote counters tallied the votes for Romney, and refused to acknowledge when states read out votes for other candidates. There was a very faint "RON PAUL" after every instance of the vote counter not reading back Paul's votes.

Have they always done roll call this early or could this be because of something could have happened that would have screwed up the delegate counts?

There's a way to not piss off crazy old people? What do they do, pass out liquor and valium?
 
2012-08-28 06:27:27 PM  
I'm still not really clear on how appointing your own delegates works. So we've got a random state that votes a delegate to the convention, and they're bound by their state's rules, which in some cases is "Vote for this guy, but if he doesn't get a majority, use your best instincts." So Paul's campaign subverted the process in order to stack its own friendlies in there. With the rule change, would the primary take place normally in a state, but they don't bother sending a delegate because Romney will just choose whoever he wants?

Furthermore, is it the delegates who determine party platforms and priorities? I can see why they'd be angry if every four years, whichever dope is next in line gets to kick all the grassroots people in the face and create whatever platform he wants.

"Party rules, honestly, that's not the campaign," Beth Myers, wholed Romney's VP search, told an audience in Tampa Tuesday.

Does Ann know that Mitt has other women 'wholing' him? I'm not even sure where the Mittster would get the equipment, sex toys are illegal in his other "home state" of Utah.

Fortunately wingnuts like Paul and his demented followers will never by accepted by mainstream public opinion. When this little draft-dodging coward finally retires both parties can get down to the serious business of defending America and our staunch ally (I think you know who) and prevent Iran from using their huge arsenal of WMDs to pollute all of our precious bodily fluids.

I was a delegate for Ron Paul because I wanted to see more state-level driven innovations towards governance. What President Obama did by granting waivers to the welfare reform regulations so that states could try what suits them best is a strong step in the right direction. The fact that the Romney campaign took a good idea, or at least what I think is a good idea, and shat on it to smear Obama has pretty much sealed my vote for Obama. Just because he's a politician doesn't mean he can't be better than that.

Writes Travis Holte: "The Ron Paulians chanted, 'Seat them now!' after getting steamrolled on certification of the Maine delegates. The creep Repubs chanted 'USA, USA' over them."

UPDATE from Travis: "So far Alaska and Arizona have given Paul 9 and 3 votes respectively. The big story is the roll taker. She's completely ignoring the Paul votes, only repeating those of Romeny."

UPDATE from Travis:

Massachusetts: 41 Romney, 0 Paul. ???
Maine: 10 Paul, 14 Romney.
Louisiana: 12 Paul, 32 Romney, 2 Santorum

Iowa: 22 Ron Paul, 6 Romney. Lot's of cheers for Paul. The roll taker only repeats the Romney total.

Hawaii: 17 Romney, 3 Paul

Georgia gives 72 to Romney, then the microphone gets tuned off for the Paul total. Overheard is someone on stage saying "Good job with the mic." Turns out Paul got 3.

From another thread:

I Said: I like the "U-S-A" chants.

Whenever republicans are lost and scared and don't know what to do, they just seem to scream "U-S-A, U-S-A" as loud as they can in the hopes that the very words will fix things.

As a conservative, I don't give a hot turd if Romney pissed off the delusional Paulians or NOT. Ron Paul is a threat to our nation-- it seems that Ron Paul, in his own words, believes that the United States can be "friends" with Muslim extremists. He says that he believes that they aren't really a threat if we leave those poor misunderstood Islamofacists alone. Ron Paul is living back in the 1920′s Isolationist movement with NO thought as to WHY we cannot adapt ourselves to that position in an age of nuclear tipped missles! Wake up Paulinians, utopia does not exist this side of heaven!

I have a buddy who is a huge Paul supporter. He went to Paul's rally in Florida, he donates time and money to his campaign, he ruins nights at the bar with his endless political talk. If you joke around about Paul you get lectured for 20 minutes.

Lost Thought 00: jigger: Starting the smallest and simplest of businesses these days is ridiculously expensive due to compliance costs. So you run to the government for a loan or grant.

I guess that depends on the specific industry. I don't think either party is discussing eliminating business regulation in general, though


True. Also large organizations will soak local and state governments for welfare just because they can.

I'd say that decorum is important in a nationally televised event. I refer to the president as simply "Obama"or "Bush" or whatever here on fark, but if I were on television I'd say President whatever out of respect for the office and the institution. If we don't want this country to dissolve into partisanship we need to at least agree to respect election outcomes.

I think courtesy and respect are important. The last thing you want to be is ill-mannered.

I prefer Obama over Romney, because at least Obama has resisted IMMENSE pressure from the Xionist Lobby to attack Iran - though he HAS caved to pressure to apply sanctions that have cost us - US Consumers - BILLION$ of dollar$ in the form of higher fuel prices and all areas that are otherwise affected by said costs (everything).

Romney, OTOH, has flatly stated that he will let Israel dictate his foreign policy. Clearly the Zionist crowd believes him (Sheldon Adelson is betting on it) and so do I.

So IMO, a vote for Romney is a vote for WWIII and high-speed national suicide, whereas a vote for Obama is a vote for the continued slow-motion suicide of the nation.


Both sides are bad so VOTE!!!

Ron Paul is a threat to our nation-- it seems that Ron Paul, in his own words, believes that the United States can be "friends" with Muslim extremists. He says that he believes that they aren't really a threat if we leave those poor misunderstood Islamofacists alone. Ron Paul is living back in the 1920′s Isolationist movement with NO thought as to WHY we cannot adapt ourselves to that position in an age of nuclear tipped missles! Wake up Paulinians, utopia does not exist this side of heaven!

Are you intentionally mis-stating his ideas or just that dense and reactionary? I can't tell but let me help you out.

- We can stop doing the things that piss them off (invading muslim lands "for their own good". Building Military bases in their lands "for their own good and to protect our freedoms". Blanket support of Israel no matter what (and Israel is right most of the time).

- Cut foreign aid as it just props up corrupt regimes
- Stop telling others how to live and run their nations
- Solve our own human rights issues here rather than NO YOU! for our foreign policy views.

so on and so forth.

be rational and dispassionate.

It's Mitt Romney who has a problem with the American Dream. He and his cohorts are on top, and they plan to stay there. Your hope of achieving your dreams, or in getting ahead at all, is in direct conflict with their goal to stay on top of you. Their arrogance was clearly on display today in shutting Ron Paul out. Makes me ashamed. I've voted Republican ever since Ronald Reagan's second term. How can I vote Republican when they're so goddamn shameless, they blatantly nominate a veritable poster child for corporate greed, outsourcing, and social stratification for President? Nearly everything they're ragging on Obama for was either started by Bush, or Romney was complicit in it.

What's funny is what they are describing is actually a symptom of being brainwashed, not a cure from it. The best way to brainwash anyone is to make them believe their reality is entirely a social construction, and that everyone suffers from this until they "wake up". Then you lose your friends, and begin to further build your own reality remote from any of the checks and balances a healthy social life gives you.

Well, it's nice to know you paint a broad brush over an entire demographic from what a single person posts on Facebook. That's what astute people do.

Yes, because if Paulbots are known for anything, it's accepting that people can have other ideas without being 'brainwashed sheeple'.

physt: Corvus: physt: I work with a paultard who is a delegate from my state. Text book assburger...

What's funny about them is they know a little about stuff and they think they now it all. Once I was trying to explain to one I worked with how the economy is not a zero sum game and inflation happens even if your not "printing money".

Yea, this guy believes a lot of wacky stuff. He's super religious and doesn't trust main stream science. Plus, he loves to talk all day and has a real hard time ending conversations and he really freaks if someone changes the conversation.

I pretty much had to stop talking to him once he started to advocate against child labor laws. It was clear he didn't have any historical perspective whatsoever.



"A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines." - Ralph Waldo Emerson


I think this is the biggest problem with conservatives and libertarians, but libertarians even more so. They're so determined to be pure that they don't realize when they're throwing the baby out with the bathwater.

That's how we end up with a people that shriek for laissez faire Thunderdome capitalism and swear that a center-right very moderately Keynesian Democrat is a Marxist extremist.

They've got to be consistent and "true" to the faith. Any deviation from purity is utterly intolerable.

Regulations are bad and inefficient and the unfettered market is ALWAYS the best way to address problems, ALWAYS!!! So, even if some kids end up working in factories... so be it, because they must remain consistent.

Mitt Romney is a coward, too?

ourbigdumbmouth: It's interesting what they're doing in Tampa. Shows that Romney will do anything to get what he feels he deserves.


Romney was born with a silver foot in his mouth. The world owes him big time.

Too? Isn't cowardice one of Mitt Romney's defining characteristics?

It's funny how they say how all these problems people caused will be solved if we give people the option to do what they want.

Gunny Highway: The Stealth Hippopotamus: Did you make legalization of pot one of your main planks?!?! Have you demanded the return of the gold standard? Have you promised to return all troops to US soil?

If you didn't answer hell yes to all of these question you pissed off all 123 Ron Paul supports that will vote in November

I have a buddy who is a huge Paul supporter. He went to Paul's rally in Florida, he donates time and money to his campaign, he ruins nights at the bar with his endless political talk. If you joke around about Paul you get lectured for 20 minutes.

I can understand where Team Romney is coming from.


Huh. I also know a guy who's a RON PAUL supporter and does the exact same thing. He's also a 20-something. I guess this is relatively common. :-/

quizzical: ourbigdumbmouth: It's interesting what they're doing in Tampa. Shows that Romney will do anything to get what he feels he deserves.

They just finished rollcall at the RNC. The official vote counters tallied the votes for Romney, and refused to acknowledge when states read out votes for other candidates. There was a very faint "RON PAUL" after every instance of the vote counter not reading back Paul's votes.


From another article: "Later when Speaker John Boehner called a voice vote on the new rules process, Paul supporters' "nays" loudly bested the "ayes." Boehner nonetheless sided with the ayes,"

Now even votes mean nothing to the Power People. God help us. They're not even pretending anymore.

This makes me lose all respect for the Republican party. There are procedures and rules and processes. It's often called "the rule of law". Just because you think the Ron Paul delegates are nut jobs, if they followed the rules (bent though they may be) to get the convention, you must give them their due respect. Otherwise you're just a dictatorship.

Here's a test: How will the Republicans rule the country? Look at how they run their convention. Ignore and chant down people we don't agree with. Ignore the rules of order. Nice example.

The republic is dead, and has been since 1913.

Duke Phillips' Singing Bears: I watched the video. Why is shouting "USA! USA!" at the top of their lungs the standard issue Republican response for any kind of disagreement?

Yes, yes, keep stereotyping, it makes you look so intelligent. Ain't posting overly general comments on multitudes of people on the internet so easy and fun?
