    Are You Prepared to Vote For ‘More of the Same’ to Stop Obama?

    We have not been alone in suggesting that the nomination of any Republican candidate other than Ron Paul would essentially amount to a second term for President Obama.

    One of the key reasons for why Ron Paul has consistently won over 20% or more of Republican voters during the primaries is because he is considered to be unlike any other candidate out there – a rebel, a true maverick. For Paul supporters, the thought of having a President Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum or Newt Gingrich is no different than having another four years of President Obama. These views are shared by millions of Americans who see no difference between the tax and spend initiatives, foreign policy, and liberty restricting legislation supported by republicans and democrats alike over the last three decades.

    As such, these millions of Americans, many of whom were involved in the original grass roots Tea Party movement prior to its annexation by the broader Republican Party, refuse to be tricked again by a politician who talks a big game with promises of limited government, tax cuts, spending cuts, and a return to Constitutional values, but fails to deliver anything but more of the same once they are elected.

    This presents quite a conundrum for Republican Party candidates and the prospect of removing President Obama from office come November. Ron Paul supporters, many of whom have adamantly refused to vote for anyone but Paul for President, have unequivocally and en masse put the establishment on notice: Either you join us and make Paul the nominee, or Obama wins in November because we’re staying home on election day.

    In a recent Ulsterman Report interview, a long-time DC operative and Obama administration insider shares his insights on the matter. Among other things, Insider argues that Romney, Santorum and Gingrich are nothing like Obama, and that rather than focusing on destroying the credibility of republican primary candidates, the focus needs to shift, fully and completely, on removing President Obama from the White House.

    I’ve read the comments by people sayin’ they are conservative.  If Romney gets the nomination…or if Gingrich gets the nomination…or if Santorum gets the nomination…whoever gets the f-cking nomination – they are sayin’ they won’t vote for them because “they’re just like Obama.”  Really?  Is that right?  BULLSH-T.  There ain’t nobody “just like Obama” people.  Believe me.  You ain’t got a f-cking clue if that’s what you really think.

    This country ain’t seen anybody reach the White House like Obama.  Or more importantly – the people around Obama.  The ones supporting and pushing Obama.  Giving him the agenda, the words, the whole f-cking plan.  So shut the hell up about not voting for the Republican because they are “just like Obama.”  That kind of talk is comin’ from somebody who either is dumb as f-ck or is working for the campaign.  The Obama campaign.  And they are crawling all over your stupid Facebook thing.  And leaving comments on your stories.  I warned you about that.  There’s gonna be more of it.  A lot more.  You hear somebody saying they won’t support the Republican because they are ”just like Obama” – you ignore that sh-t.  It  ain’t worth your time.

    Any of these Republicans – ANY OF THEM, are a hell of an improvement over Barack Obama.  If it’s Santorum, or Romney, or Gingrich, or Paul…you fall in line and you support that candidate and you vote Obama the f-ck out.  That’s the goal.  That’s your motivation.  PERIOD.  Because if you don’t do that…if you give this administration four more years…I’ve already said enough on that, right?

    It’s never going back…the country…this version of America is finished and I got no real idea as to how different it’s gonna be.  We won’t recognize it – I know that.  I was talking to a fella last week about the Senate…plans to take the Senate.  Republicans.  As a stop-gap, right?  You know what he told me?  Looked me straight in the eye and said – “It won’t matter.  He has pushed executive authority so far already…it won’t matter.  Give him a couple more Supreme Court nominees…it won’t matter.  If he gets the White House again…IT WON’T MATTER.”

    Source: The Ulsterman Report: Read the complete interview

    While reports have emerged over the last couple of days that Mitt Romney and Ron Paul may have formed a partnership against the other candidates, potentially setting up a Romney/Paul ticket for November, there are serious doubts that Obama can be beaten without the full backing of every conservative, republican and independent in the country.

    It seems that Ron Paul’s often marginalized supporters will be the ones responsible for determining who the next President of the United States will be.

    Primary results and the latest polling suggest that Paul will not be the republican nominee this year, which means either Romney, Santorum or Gingrich will be going head to head with Obama.

    In that situation, at the eleventh hour, will Paul supporters remain steadfastly opposed to voting for another candidate, and by doing so handing the election to Obama? Or, will the prospect of four more years of a President who has lived up to at least one campaign promise – that he will fundamentally change America – be enough to drive them to the polls in support of any republican with a heartbeat?

    The answer to this question will be the single determining factor in this year’s Presidential election.

      • Agreed. But look at this way. When you look at all the foul, morally corrupt candidates up against Obama, it’s like the powers that be are putting the worst against him to ensure that he wins. And sadly, Paul has basically been black listed.

          “Anybody but odrama”?

          With that attitude you’re going to get the same shit, all over again, just a different texture and aroma.

          You’re telling us that Gingrich, Santorum and Romney aren’t in the same pockets that own Obama?

          Until you and all the masses realize “they” are no different, then it makes me wonder, are you really cognizant of what is taking place right before your very eyes?

            Look I hear you and I know. Dr. Paul is not going to be the winner. With all the tricks the GOP is pulling (Ballot counts, and such). It’s all rigged!!!! I just know one thing for sure, and that is I know what we have in there currently will get even bolder and more blatant than he is now. Maybe, (wishful thinking, you know hope)that it will not be any worse. Who ever from the GOP will try to win over the public (ease the masses fear) by overturng some of the things this POS has put into place. The world is about to change and soon!! I think a GOP candidate will slow down the machine and give me more time to prep if anything. I hate Mittens, I hate Gingwinch, and i hate Insanetorem! But I REALLLY REALLY REALLY without a shadow of a doubt, Hate Barry!!! You do not want to see a second term of Barry. Hear that loud and clear! You think he is bold now? Unless you are fully prepped, which I am not. YOU DO NOT WANT BARRY TO HAVE A SECOND TERM!!!!! He might just go ahead and declare himself as King before the next election any way. You might not even have a chance to vote, and if he had his way you wouldn’t. If he can drop this nation to it’s knees before election time, well thats a game changer and he suceeded! To sum it up I will stick to my original qoute from above ANYBODY BUT ODRAMA!!!!!!!!!

            Gingrich, Santorum and Romney are indeed politicians but they are not even close to as bad as Obama. Obama has already done numerous things that are likely to destroy this country. Probably his runaway deficits will hit us first. While I agree we need someone far better then the current crop of candidates the simple fact is there isn’t going to be someone capable and willing to correct all the mistakes and crimes of Obama and return us to a constitutional Democratic republic. Until we find that kind of leader we need someone, anyone who will at least save us from a total collapse that Obama is setting us up for. So yes I will vote for anyone but Obama.

            “The difference between the Republicans and the Democrats, is that it will take the Republicans a week longer to accept communism.”- Mike Reagan

            If Gingrich, Romney, or God-forbid, Santorum are installed, we may as well hit the reset button anyway.

            We are beyond “taking back our country”. There are too many parasites, and they are outbreeding the producers. Divorce is the only solution. They can be pushed to the other section and revel in their socialist utopia for its entire short life.

          Paul is by far the best on economic issues but will never stand a chance. Libertarians don’t have chance until they recognize that morality is tied to liberty and all issues are social issues.

            @buz614,

            Them’s fighting words! Ok, so you believe that libertarians will never succeed until they realize morality is tied to liberty? I believe that anyone who believes that morality and social issues should be a key part of libertarian philosophy is not yet ready to be a libertarian.

            Who, in your mind, decides what is moral? If you pose that question to ten people, you will get ten different answers. Senator Santorum seems to think he is best qualified to decide what we do in our bedrooms. The ass-clown-in-chief has a different view of morality that finds expression in taking from my wallet to pay for what someone else is doing in their bedroom. Her Highness Princess Pelosi defines morality as taking from my wallet to give to someone else to destroy the results from what they did in their bedroom. I, and my fellow libertarians find great danger in attempting to legislate morality and make decisions for others that are best left for themselves to decide. I believe in live and let live, in eliminating the criminality of victimless crime, and in giving the responsibility to the individual, along with the consequences, to choose how they will live their life.

            The America the founders lived in was no stranger to immoralality as defined by the likes of Sen. Santorum. Prostitution was common, and brothels did not have to be hidden. Many of the founders grew hemp and undoubtedly partook in the (gasp!) smoking of it. George Washington was the largest distiller of whiskey in the colonial states, and gambling was a common pastime of many citizens at the time. With all this immorality going on, the Founders did not feel the need to include an amendment stating how often one must go to church, or outlawing prostitution, or even authorizing a Cabinet level agency to go after the growers and users of hemp. If they, with all of their wisdom could live and let live, then why are we not able to follow their example? I will give you a hint; those advocating laws in support of morality do not have morality as their goal when they do so.

            @ Moon

            I seem to have hit a nerve.  You are correct that I am not yet ready to be a libertarian. I am not at all trying to stir anyone to anger but only point out where Libertarianism strays from most of the remaining Americans who revere the Constitution and would love to see a return to constitutionally limited government. The following is from Joseph Farah of WND found at the link referenced. It expresses my sentiments so well that I will cut and paste and move on to other things for the afternoon.

            “Libertarians make a fundamental mistake about the nature of man. Man is not inherently good. Man can only learn to govern himself when he understands there is a higher accountability – a higher authority. Ideally, that higher authority is not the government, but God. Government can only demand good behavior through force. But when individuals understand they are accountable to God, and that He requires certain kinds of behavior as defined in the Ten Commandments and the totality of scripture, there is a chance for man to maximize his freedom here on earth.

            Freedom can only be experienced and maximized, though, when it is accompanied by personal responsibility. Personal responsibility cannot be legislated. It cannot be forced. It cannot be coerced. Libertarians generally understand this, but too few of them comprehend a laissez faire society can only be built in a culture of morality, righteousness and compassion.

            Libertarians who expect to build such a society through politics alone make a fundamental error. In a sense, they are utopian dreamers like the socialists, ignoring the importance of human nature in shaping communities and nations.

            I don’t want to be too hard on the libertarians, because of all the political activists in America, they may have the best concept of limited constitutional government. That’s a big start, but it’s only a start. We cannot ignore the flaws in their positions. We cannot ignore the fact that they don’t have a complete picture. We cannot ignore that a libertarian society devoid of God and a biblical worldview would quickly deteriorate into chaos and violence.

            Would this country be better off with more libertarians? Absolutely. Do they have all the answers? Not even close.

            The truth is there’s more to life than politics. Much more.

            Here’s the way the father of our country and, as some have described him, “the father of freedom,” George Washington put it in his inaugural address:

            The foundations of our national policy will be laid in the pure and immutable principles of private morality, and the preeminence of free government be exemplified by all the attributes which can win the affections of its citizens, and command the respect of the world. I dwell on this prospect with every satisfaction which an ardent love for my country can inspire: since there is no truth more thoroughly established, than that there exists in the economy and course of nature, an indissoluble union between virtue and happiness; between duty and advantage; between the genuine maxims of an honest and magnanimous policy, and the solid rewards of public prosperity and felicity: since we ought to be no less persuaded that the propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the external rules of order and right, which Heaven itself has ordained: and since the preservation of the sacred fire of liberty, and the destiny of the republican model of government, are justly considered as deeply, perhaps as finally, staked on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American People.

            When the libertarians add such a provision to their national platform, let me know. I’ll be happy to consider the new label.”

            For more on where I and many would be libertarians simply cannot reconcile see the rest of the article:

            I hope that soon we can somehow unify in order to be able to stand together in fighting the Islamic fascist, international elitist, and pinko commies that are seeking to destroy our way of life.

            God bless.

      • Agreed. Plus a Romney/Paul ticket would at least get Dr. Paul into the equation. And you know he will be a squeaky wheel unlike Biden.

        While you get more of the same with Romney – you will get a more responsible government with its’ money.

        • Assuming voting made a difference, the parasite class will come out in droves to oppose Dr Paul. I know some here worship him and he may even be exactly what USA needs to survive, but if the parasites think anyone is going to mess with the “gimmes”, enough of them will make the effort to vote. They will even be ferried to the polls.

          Bullshit. Ron Paul will not play second fiddle to that fake non-conservative billionaire gameshow host called Romney. What good will that do the country? Ron Paul won’t be able to do anything as VP.

          The truth is – Ron Paul IS the front runner, and they’ve been lying, committing ‘irregularities’ at all the caucuses, losing ‘trucks with votes’ in them, overlooking entire counties in Maine, you name it.

          This country is headed for revolution, as I’m sure most people on this website are already well aware.

          I’m voting for Ron Paul or I’m writing him in but IT DOES NOT MATTER who wins if it’s not him. We all get what we deserve – a police state run by the next Hitler, I’m not kidding. The Constitution is dead. Bush shot it up, Obama is working hard at finishing the job.

          GIVE UP LEFT vs RIGHT, PEOPLE!!!! Both parties are lying scum selling us all up the river of war, death, imprisonment, and destruction.

          Agreed Survivor Mike, it gives me some HOPE over the last few days to see Romney and Paul cozying up to each other. I am a supporter of SOME of Ron Paul’s ideas, but not all of them which I won’t get into here. However I think if he becomes VP, some of his ideals will bleed through. He brings balance to the office and he wont sit there and do little to nothing. I feel the worst item in all of this is there is no clear front runner, none of them I can truly back 100%. That being said, I’d vote for Bill Clinton before I would Mr. Obama, maybe even Jimmy Carter, maybe not.

        Anybody but Obama? Really? I believe the current options with the exception of Dr Paul are just a reaffirmation of the status quo and TPTB equivilent of “good cop, bad cop”. At the end of the day they are all working to destroy the country either through active, conscious intent in the case of the current assclown-in-chief, by the inability to form a consistent conviction in the case of “Mittens’, and by actively working to impose religious theocracy and intrude government into every aspect of the lives of individuals in the case of Sans-Scrotum.

        What good does replacing Obama do if the replacement fundamentally believes in the supremecy of government over the sovereignty of the individual? Now I despise Obama as much as the next person and I would love to see him join the ranks of the unemployed – my problem with voting for Romney or Santorum is they will do just enough to buy more time for the powerful and the well-connected to continue to loot the wealth of the world as they tighten the screws on the police state formerly known as America, and when the powerful have finished dumping their positions in fiat they will pull the rug out from under the rest of us. Obama is a socialist who is working to rapidly collapse the system in order to bring on the workers paradise.

        I would propose that those of us who love liberty would do better to ignore the election if Dr Paul is not the nominee because if he is not the nominee it will not matter which monkey sits in the Oval Office because at that point the system WILL collapse, and it should be in our interest to bring it to a conclusion rapidly instead of a long, dwindling twilight of our country during which we are forced to use up our stockpiled resources, our metals, and our youth while we are waiting for the end to finally come.

        I have always felt that it is a shame that the voters who voted for Franklin Roosevelt at the beginning of the expansion of the federal government and the creation of the entitlement class, never faced the consequences of their vote. Those who voted for Lyndon Johnson and the expansion of the entitlement class never faced the consequences of their vote either. The Bible in Exodus mentions the sins of the father being visited down to the third and fourth generations. The country we are inhabiting today is the proof of this; the debt and loss of liberty, empire and endless wars to enrich the wealthy and the powerful, the mortgaging of the future of generations unborn to satisfy the spoiled whims of ungrateful Boomers, all is proof that we are bearing the consequences from the failings of our parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents. For once I would like to see those who foolishly indulge their present desires by stealing from those yet unborn face in full the consequences of their stupidity. If Obama’s voters face the consequences of their vote, if they are forced to die of starvation when all the food is gone, when they see their wives and daughters gang-raped by police thugs in FEMA camps, and when they are worked to death in some slave labor colony then it will only be right because they will have brought upon themselves the day of reckoning which they had hoped to shift to their grandchildren.

          Hello MHM,

          A very passionate comment/post!!!

          Your third paragraph says what many have said not only now but before in other stories Mac has put up.

          The fourth pragraph brings to light a concept many may not have thought about.

          Thank you MHM. Look forward to your future posts.(MM)

            I would love to always be a tenessee farm girl.
            I want Paul to get the nomination, but lets be realistic,
            They (TPTB) will do everything that they can including lie and cheat to keep him off of the ballott. We need hom to start bringing this cart around and headed into the right direction before our country totally goes down the toilet. But , with that said, We Can Not Afford Another Term of BO!
            Our choices are extremely limited. We can only vote for who they put on the ballott. If we are to be rid of Obama, we have to vote for whomever they offer us. It is what it is and yelling at each other does not change this fact. I will vote republican for the election. I can pray that it will be Paul, but we all know that is not gonna happen.
            The only thing we can do is prep, prep, prep. Keep our families and friends as safe as possible or move out of the country. Frankly, I love America and refuse to leave the home that I love. There is not another place on thes planet that is better. I agree that “anyone but Obama” is all we can do for this election. Support Paul and pray that he does not give up! Pray very hard on this one.
            Stack the preps high and deep. learn all of the skills that you can. Band with other like minded people. Buy books to learn how to do things and protect them as reference manuals for when we no longer have the luxury of electricity and the internet. Buy seeds and learn how to grow what you need. foood and medicinal plants.
            This is no game. our lives may very well depend on it!
            I have every intention of seeing my kids and grandkids live! survive! and try to make our broken country great again. We need to teach skills, honor, morals,and hard work to the young ones in our lives. Playstations,and xboxes will not save thier asses in hardtimes. Teach them problem solving. Teach them how to fix things in a non traditional way. teach them to survive. this is not a short term thing. Our once great nation is in trouble. we put it there along with the greedy and the politions. Now we have to fix it!
            Love American and do what is needed to move in the right direction. a direction that would make your granddad and greatgranddad proud. or get the hell out!
            Each American has to be part of the solution, not add to the problem.
            I pray that it is not too late to make America great again.
            God Bless us and God Bless America

            Tn,

            If, as you say, “We can only vote for who they put on the ballot”, and “It is what it is.”, then you must realize, the fix is in. And your “vote” is not even real, and means nothing. That means you have accepted Joseph Stalin’s terms of how elections are conducted.

            “It is enough to say there was an election. Those who cast the ballots decide nothing. Those who count the ballots decide everything.” -Joseph Stalin

            Why then, do you presume “voting” for “anyone but Obama”, will change anything? All BO is doing, is his masters’ bidding, and in large measure following up what GWB started. This is likely the last chance to “vote” for a real candidate who actually cares about the US Constitution. All the preps in the world will not help you, if this country descends into tyranny.

            Ma’am,

            Voting is a sham given to us by those with power to provide the illusion we actually choose our leaders. When you vote, you give legitimacy to the outcome of that election and provide TPTB the illusion that they actually rule by the consent of the governed. That is precisely why Ron Paul is so marginalized by both parties and the media. He represents a true choice, one that is outside of their control, and as such, he is an existential threat to those who pull the strings of our “elected” representatives. I will vote in this election for Ron Paul if he is the candidate even if he has no chance of winning. I will write his name in if he is not the candidate. I will do these things because I believe in what Ron Paul represents; he is the last gasp for freedom in the police state being built before our eyes. None of the other candidates represents such a threat to TPTB precisely because they are all part of the same beast. I repeat – if the occupant of the Oval Office is anyone other than Dr Paul, it does not matter because the system WILL collapse and I would rather have the collapse happen sooner rather than later. I want it to collapse so those in this generation responsible for electing our warden experience the full consequences of their stupidity in their lifetime. I do this because I will not be responsible for mortgaging the future of my son. I want him to have those opportunities which I will purchase at the expense of my blood and treasure because it is the right thing to do. Our decline as a nation began when we started deferring the consequences of our profligacy onto the shoulders of future generations and if we do not wish our descendents to curse our existence, then it will fall to us to stop passing the buck and do what is necessary to correct it.

            This statement excludes Dr. Ron Paul, who isn’t going to get the nomination anyway. Americans, and Republicans especially, really don’t want to support any one of the other three nitwits running.

            I’m wondering about a “Brokered Convention” and the Republicans drafting a centrist, someone like Jeb Bush. If they keep fighting and bickering amongst themselves for very much longer, then they waste valuable time that could be better spent promoting a candidate in a national effort.

            Obama is being held up as a Boogeyman for the republicans. George “W” Bush was a disaster, and would have been much worse if Obama had come first. We are on a very slippery slope, and each successive president has been worse than his predecessor for as long as I can remember (since Reagan, at least).

            It simply does not matter who is president, with the exception of Ron Paul, or some other outsider. The best we can hope for is to get the disaster over with so we can start again.

            That was what we decided for California. We voted for Jerry Brown in an attempt to finish off the state.

          The errosion of our nation has been going on for generations and to each puppet the credit for their part. I’d also like to send out a big pile of smelly steaming poo to all of the members of Congress and the Senate for the roles they have played in erosion of our nation.

          The only way we are going to see anything resembling the America Land of the Free that we all desire is if Ron Paul is running the show. It seems we will be writing in his name yet again, as if it somehow matters and the elections aren’t rigged from start to finish.

        Sorry, Obama isn’t the problem, it’s the immoral system and it’s masters. Obama is just the figurehead, changing the face of a fascist government isn’t going to change the outcome. What will changes that everyone who opposes the current direction will suddenly be ok with it once “their” guy is running the show. Just like Obama supporters were anti Bush policies, until they got the figurehead position, then suddenly those same disagreeable policies were just and good. The only way to derail this this train wreck is at the ballot box, by NOT voting. Displaying our loss of confidence in the system by refusing to participate is the only way to enact change. Can you imagine if they had an election and no one came? Or just 10% voted? That is a clear vote of no confidence. Of course the alternative is to vote, thus,legitimizing these criminals. Then your only choices will be resist by exercising your 2nd amendment rights, or capitulate and shut the f up. The founding fathers understood this w/out fancy degrees and 24/7 cable tv.

        We then trade a big zero for a slightly smaller zero. That slightly smaller zero attacks different parts of the Constitution. When the public is fed up with that they swing back to the other party that goes after other parts of the Constitution.

        Due to the above we loose gradually and therefore continuously. Gradualism is their strategy and it’s predicated upon settling for movement in the wrong direction sacrificing direction for velocity.

            I think the Republicans may have already lost the election. the current candidates have their own group of supporters but they are not pulling in the independents and the swing voters. These voters are also losing faith in Obama but the Republicans have not created a compelling alternative.
            Obama has been manipulating the media and building his standing while the Republicans squabble among themselves. Just like four years ago, Obama is building a strong foundation while the challengers are tied up in busywork.
            I just suspect that, barring any major unexpected change, the election has already been decided by the PTB.
            I know my vote doesn’t count- my state always goes Republican. I will vote for Ron Paul even if he is a write in.

      • I’ve always done it that way. But, after this last election my eyes were opened. I fully believe that if John McCain had won, we’d be in EVEN WORSE SHAPE than we are now. The explanation for this is complex but it has to do with trust and redirection and political skill. No, Obama was the “better” choice. My fellow faux-conservatives scream at me for saying this, but I do.

        Obama was the best over the republiCON choice this time for all the wrong reasons but mainly it boils down to this:

        Do you want an unskilled muslim American hater that no one trusts in the white house? Or would you prefer and highly skilled, highly experienced NWO proponent that has the same ideas that KNOWS how to get them done in the white house?

        I rest my case. In my opinion Obama will be a better choice than Romney or Gingrich. My jury is still out on Santorum. He’s a shapeshifter. The devil you know is better than the devil you don’t.

        Just vote for Ron Paul. The guy will not go back on his principles. He never has.

So, you think that Obama’s staff is more damaging that McCain’s would have been? …and, say, Romney’s would be better than Obama’s? Probably true but I think the overall downward spiral would have been the same. Maybe just not as fast.

            We don’t need a pause or a slow down. We need a reversal. A reversal back to constitutional principals. A slow down lulls the sheople to sleep and then the spiral continues. While its better, its also insidious in that it makes us think things are getting better.

            I’m still stuck on the issue that a Romney admin would be socialist lite and would be much more skilled. Even if they were 10% as bad as Team Obama they are 1000% more effective so you’d get 100% of the socialist, fascist, government expansionism.

            Ron Paul is about the only chance for any change of destiny. Many things though, and Dr. Paul knows this to be true, cannot be sustained and are, in fact, destined to die off. He’s the only candidate actually saying anything close to reality.

            Happy lifeboat building farmgirl! All the best to you and to all who champion the causes of freedom and sustainability…. meaning REAL freedom from the matrix of the juvenile political game playing. Freedom isn’t thinking outside the box; freedom means questioning the box itself.

        Hate to break it to everyone, but Obama will get re-elected. Not that I’m voting for guy, it’s just the reality of the situation. So plan accordingly. On the plus side, things will be similar to if one of the republicans were to be elected, so no great loss. Stop believing these lying thieves and think about it. Has liberty increased or decreased each year, regardless of the party in power? Has govt debt and corruption decreased or increased over time? Has govt intrusion into our lives increased or decreased? I’m not talking the last 5 or 10 yrs, but past 50, or even 90 years. It is trending steadily worse (and unfortunately accelerating under Obama, but each new regime wants to step on the gas with regards to trampling our freedoms) for our liberty as time goes on. There is no righting this ship, because both parties hate liberty and by extension, the Constitution. Government (really their sponsors, corporations, unions, banks) wins, we lose. It don’t matter if it’s a donkey or an elephant, it still hurts when they kick you in the nuts, repeatedly.

        There is only one republican candidate that is not a crook and a liar. Will he be a puppet like most of the rest of the criminal bastard theives? I hope not. He sure looks different IN EVERY WAY.

        I’m hard core Ron Paul. Come hell or high water, he gets my vote. I’ll carve it into the back of the damned voting machine and flll the grooves with my own blood if they won’t let me write it in. I’m tired of these mealy mouthed criminal bastards. Can we just elect ONE HONEST MAN to the position? Please? Just one?

        So far, there is no alternative to Obama but one. The other candidates are nothing but Obama Lite. If thats the way you want it, punch that pin or that button but if you don’t just vote for Ron Paul. He can’t save us but he can make it hurt a whole lot less.

        • I wrote in Ron Paul last time, and I will of course do it again. I do not expect him to win, nor do I see this fact as any more a waste of a vote than trying to parse the lesser of two evils from two very comparable choices.

          So Ron Paul write-in it is — but bring your own pen! Last time around, when I asked for materials for a write-in, I was handed a pencil. The apparatchiks working the polls seemed genuinely surprised (as one would expect good Kool-Aid drinkers to be) when I insisted they locate a pen.

          By all means, write in Dr. Paul but don’t lose sight of the fact that Dr. Paul or not, the train has left the station and is barreling toward us. Make up your mind on voting and get back to focusing on your personal and community preps, and do what you can to chip away at the problem: use cash, kill debt, convert FRNs to PMs, don’t fund television, use credit unions too reduce the amount of $$ banks have on deposit; if you get a ticket, pay a lawyer to get you a reduction – even if you wind up paying a bit more – rather than funding government through fines; make legitimate tax-deductible donations to your local CSA, etc. In short, to the extent you can, flow the minimum legally required amount of your earnings toward government and/or big banking/financial houses.

          best,

            Hilter’s Nazi Germany signed a non-agression pact with Stalin’s Soviet Union in the summer of 1939. It was labeled the Ribbontrop-Molotov Pact.

            When Hitler invaded the Soviet Union Stalin asked for military aid from the West. Stalin was provided military arms by the U.S. via ship convoys.

            Later FDR at the Potsdam and Yalta Conferences provided even more assistance and set the stage for the Russian take over of Eastern Europe and finally allowing them to take East Germany and Berlin.

            The biggest disgrace was Stalin’s insistence that refugees from Eastern Europe countries who made it to the West would be returned to Stalin’s control. So I will let you determine if we helped Stalin or not. (MM)

    13. I think the whole thing is one giant show. I think that no matter who is in the White House, you’ll be lucky to keep your house. That whatever person, even Ron Paul gets in, the debt will not disappear and the total credit and derivatives number of almost 800 trillion, isn’t going anywhere except up, up and to the moon, until finally we get a massive crash. I think the presidency has become so irrelevant that no matter who wins this dog and pony show, we’ll still end up with the same corporate oligarchs pulling the strings behind the scenes. So, Obama, Romney or Paul, makes little difference, we’re screwed because we drove off the cliff a long time ago.

      While I really would like to see what Ron Paul can do, I know better than to hold my breath for any positive returns until we get the crash that has been building since 1971. Thumbs me down, cry all you like, but deep down inside, you know what I say is the truth. The house of cards is stacked too high and the winds of change are blowing at the foundation.

        JoeRepublic -Since our country is in a “state of emergency” since time imemorable, IF Ron Paul were made president, he could, by executive order, eliminate just about anything he wanted within our country’s structure.

        I believe this would include all of the pointless legislation, alphabet agencies etc. that he sees fit. If this is true, he could also tell the Fed to pound Quick-Cret up their fanny and vacate the premise. He could also tell them to take their so-called debt and shove it in with the Quick-Crete.

        • Sure, he could do all those things. However, consider the repercussions of such a dramatic action.

          1) Every alphabet agency dismissed = a few million unemployed added to the already unemployed.

          2) Abolition of the Fed in a day = No paper to transact with and will grind the economy to a halt in a day. Not to mention our credit around the globe would be over as well. We’re heading this direction anyway. Maybe it’s like taking off a band-aid; better to rip it off quickly than to peel it slowly and agonize over it.

          3) Undoing every tyrannical act, perfect, I can see no harm coming from that, but others may want to argue that point. Especially those that get off on controlling others. There are plenty of them.

          So, while I agree with getting rid of all the alphabet soup and eliminating the Federal Reserve Cartel, these things cannot be done overnight. They were not installed in a day and you cannot dismantle them in a day either.

          Also, no matter what a hypothetical Ron Paul presidency does or does not, we’re still heading off the cliff. In my view, there is nothing anyone can do to prevent the inevitable crash. All we can do is let the crash happen and rebuild this country on our founding principles. With Ron Paul as president, this would be a lot easier, but I don’t count on him becoming president. Without him, I think DC will end up becoming irrelevant in the near future post collapse.

          When the collapse finally gets here we will be at a crossroad unlike any other in human history. The human race will either wake up completely and reject tyranny, or the sheep will demand more of it. So I don’t look at fixing a broken system, I look toward what happens when it comes flying apart. This will be a dangerous time of radical ideas. A time when either great leaders rise to the occasion or the most wretched tyrants seize control.

            You make reasonable points. I would add that Ron Paul ahs introduced legislation to abolish the Fed within one year’s time, so that they can wind donw their affairs. Meanwhile, the reserve board can be arrested and prevented from causing problems during the wind down time.

            If you shut down the Fed and the IRS, there is no more need for federal income tax. You would immediately infuse the economy with over half a trillion dollars and people would spend like crazy with all that extra cash. They would buy a new whatever, demand would go way up, prompting the need for more supply, including laborers. Those people laid off from the cushy alphabet agency jobs would get new jobs in the private sector.

            In a way, I’m for letting it crash as well, provided it is a controlled crash and we call the shots. However, this is not my expectation.

            JoeRepublic -Your points are well taken and the likely path our nation is headed for regardless. The system is broken and indeed, will eventually come apart. If an establishment puppet continues to get in the seat of power, they may continue to find ways to kick the can down the road while the average american suffers for their desperate attempt to stay in control and maintain all power.

            I would rather rip off the band-aid, let the crash happen and hope we don’t end up going to way of the Roman Empire. I believe if we had a leader or many leaders who are like Ron Paul to rise to the occasion the transition would be hard, but not as hard or chaotic as if those who currently stand at the podium are there.

            You make valid points. I just want my freedom. During this collapse it will be nice to be able to survive without having to worry about an additional danger of getting shipped to a FEMA camp or federal prison.

        The Presidency ,and Congress,has always been a dog and pony show for the ill informed and ever faithful expecting a better life from the false promises issued by their respective candidates on both sides.. .

        The agenda ,Continuance of Agenda,remains in place always.. and always has been..period.irrespective of who wins.

        Although I highly regard Ron Paul as a lone voice in the wilderness..I am surprised he’s even allowed to speak the truth as he does..after-all..he’s completely marginalized in the debates and by all the MSM as a fringe candidate..and likely so by his so called colleagues in Congress..

        Perhaps he’s a token for all us Constitutionalists to hang on to a false sense of hope in a government so corrupted to the core.

        I will vote for Ron Paul in a futile attempt to believe that my vote does count…if nothing more than my way of protest..

    14. This is an off topic post. Sorry Mac, just felt the conviction.

      Many of you have hammered me for my very beligerent position on our armed forces. Justified or not, I NEVER knocked the common soldier. Just the opposite! While our military is used as a tool for the powers that be in illegal and treasonous actions, our individual soldiers are the most honorable fighting force on planet earth. They comprise the most powerful military in the world and I would like to say once and for all, that they do a really admirable job wherever they go. Its the top thatt I have a problem with, not the forces themselves. In tune with that, I’d like to pass on a bit of info.

      To all the veterans that visit this site I just want to say that while I bitch and complain about the userous taxes I have to pay, your pension and your benefits make it a little less of a bitter pill. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for what you did, what you’re doing and what you will do. -NR

      Now read this, a weep a little and be disgusted a little. At least you should.

      WITH REGRET…

      We idolized and memorialized Whitney Houston, yet looked the other way concerning her well known substance abuse and tumultuous life with singer Bobby Brown.

      Charlie Sheen is 45 and his story is all over the news because he is a substance abuser, an adulterer, sexually promiscuous and obnoxious.

      Lindsay Lohan is 24 and her story is all over the news because she is a celebrity drug addict and thief.

      Something as frivolous as Kim Kardashian’s stupid wedding [and
      short-lived marriage] was shoved down our throats,

      While……..

      I’ve put a lot of thought into this lately.

      This is not simply a Clinton vs any Republican. Or Kennedy vs any Republican.

      We are talking about removing the most radical President in US History from office. A man, an administration and political backers (including the media) who are intent on destroying any semblance of life that is American. Intent on destroying our healthcare system. Intent on destroying our religion. Intent on destroying successful American’s morale & desire to work hard. Intent on doing things “his” way and ignoring Congress.

      So for this year, yes, I’m afraid I will have to vote for the lesser of two evils. Because the evil that is in place is very, very, very bad. We are not dealing with a normal Democrat here folks.

      I will vote for Ron Paul in the primary. If he is not the Republican nominee, I’m afraid I’ll have to vote for whoever is. And honestly, I think even Ron Paul knows that it would not be smart to run as a 3rd party this year. I don’t think he’ll do it. Eradicating the mad marxist should be our goal.

You guys think it doesn’t matter if it’s a re-run republican or the marxist-in-chief? Three more Elena Kagans and you can kiss the second amendment good-bye. If you like your guns, please read the liberal dissents in the Heller case… It’s enough to make your blood boil, and hopefully enough for you to hold your nose and pull the damn lever for whatever-republican-wins. Obama MUST not be re-elected.

        Societies don’t change over night. While I agree that Ron Paul is the best candidate for the presidency, the simple truth is he’s not going to be the republican nominee. But what he IS doing is making libertarian ideology more mainstream. That’s GREAT. If the Republic survives the next decade (a big if), maybe the momentum will continue to shift toward small government libertarianism? I hope so.

        There could never have been a Ronald Reagan presidency without Barry Goldwater.

      This war is going to be a ‘real’ war, no pulled punches, no playing, is you REALLY ready for this? It will break us, therefore we had better win – and be willing to reap the benefits of winning.

      Who are you going to appoint to lead this war, compare this to WWI or WWII, this ain’t going to be fun and games, the homeland will suffer, there will be a draft, kids from 18 to 27 or so, unwilling going to fight on another continent for what?

            While I can see the logic on the one hand about more time to prep with a slower descent into the inevitable, on the other how do we neglect an opportunity to alter the way society thinks by making it OK to vote for a non-formulaic candidate such as Dr. Paul, who does not conform to the “R/D” routine?

            Obviously, I’m all for prepping, but if we’re not also being the change we want to see we’re not prepping to build something better than what we’ve been saddled with to this point.

          • But, what if the slow train to hell looks like a slow train to heaven? …and the conductor says, with an eveil smile, “All Aboard! Departing to heavens gate in 7 minutes!” when, in reality, the engine is on the wrong end of the train. So, you step on, not knowing. You then, confident in your decision, fall asleep. when you wake up, its too late.

            The RP trains says we’re going to tell but they’re going to give you a backpack with water and a firesuit. They also won’t throw you out into the flames. You know your going to hell, regardless but at least you’ll have a little better position.

            All trains lead to hell from here. Its just that the RON PAUL train doesn’t have conductors that will throw you under the wheels on the way.

            I believe that anything other than a Ron Paul win worse for this country, in the end, than Obama.

            I agree with your points, but, like I said, falling asleep on the Romney Line just means you get there well rested but you still have no defense and it gives the police state more time to position itself to dominate.

      Here’s how it’s gonna go down. Months more of the ongoing mud-slinging by the Republicans, and people are going to be even sicker of it than they are now. Meanwhile all o’drama (lol) has to do is sit there and be a nice guy. The repubs eventually settle down on Mitt Romney (who in the world names their son Mitt? What the hell is that all about?) who is the most bland, cardboard cutout of a man they can get. Obama wins by a fair margin, and we settle in for 4 more years of rule by Obama, which is the same as it’d be under Mitt, “The Newt”, Senor Butt-Juice, etc.

      The only real change would indeed be for Ron Paul to get elected, except that it would mean the death of the military-industrial complex Eisenhower warned us of, and they won’t go quietly. If RP got even close to being elected, I have a feeling the old boy would have a stroke, or an accident on that bicycle of his.

      If we could get someone in who would take us partway where RP would, and then another guy who’d take us further, and over the space of several presidencies, get where RP would try to in one go, we’d have a chance. But it doesn’t work that way. In fact looking back over time, whether they have an R or a D in front of their name, the growth of government has been steady, bigger and bigger all the time. The trend of starting and continuing world conflict has been steady. An Empire’s gotta grow, and an Empire’s gotta eat.

            Jackie,

            I am convinced that the two parties are actually ONE party and you are correct they really don’t care if Barry remains in office. Way too many things like not challenging his “Natural Born” status and appointing Boehner was the biggest slap in the face of the TEA party which has essentially given the Republican party a second chance at life.

            To further bolster that opinion examine how Ron Paul has spent approximately 40 years being adherent to constitutional and pro-freedom values yet he regularly finds himself in direct opposition to the ideas of the political class of his own party. Therefore it is imperative to that establishment that Paul not be allowed to win the presidency. The political establishment does not want the American people to hear Dr. Paul let alone win, hence the blatant ignoring him on stage and on the news.

            When the establishment has a governor of a state tell the media “if Dr. Paul wins my state ignore the results and watch who places second” that should embarrass the entire country, the world is watching!

            When you hear spokespeople for the ‘GOP’ say that Ron Paul can’t win, what they are saying is not that he doesn’t have a chance of winning it is simply that he cannot be allowed to win – like read as fearful and terrified “he CAN’T win” or we lose power!!!

          Just a super pac that supplies toys to the CIA, and apparently Paul’s political platform is the same as that of one of the Koch brothers back in the 70s.

          • I don’t have tv and support any LSM liars, but online videos and online headlines presented a racist newsletter a few years ago that slipped by mediator Congressman Paul and was mailed…OMG!!!! OMG!!! OMG!!!(insert sarc icon here)
            Is this the best they got??? Just saying.
            No affairs? No pork barrel projects to family and friends? No insider trading?? No salary-enhanced appointments to friends and family?? No delivering of mixed-race babies of wives in distress and just ‘forgetting’ to send the delivery bill to papa??

      • Oh, so one guy that supports Ron Paul is a dirty bastard so that makes Ron Paul a dirty bastard too?

        Wow! You have a vivid imagination.

        …and a SuperPAC that doesn’t coordinate with the campaign?

        Like all the dirt that people manufacture about Ron Paul:

        FAILFAILFAILFAILFAILFAILFAILFAILFAILFAILFAILFAILFAILFAILFAILFAIL

        Sorry, people do what they want and support who they want. Try to smear Ron Paul because a few of his supporters are “unsavory” won’t work. Jerimiah Write, Bernadene Dorn and a host of other criminals that OPENLY SUPPORTED and have DIALOG with the current president doesn’t seem to be a problem. But this does?

        F A I L. Sorry, weak, very very weak. Guilt by association fails.

        Look at Ron Paul’s voting record and why he voted that way and why he always votes the SAME WAY. Consistency is golden. Ron Paul is golden. He’ll do what he says unlike that last few presidents and most of the congress.

    36. Dang, RP brothers and sisters! I could have sat this one out!

      …again, I’m tired of this bullshit. No more “stategic voting”.

      In fact, I’m damned near to the point that if we get a “Mitt” or a “Newt” I may just vote for Obama just to piss karma off. Honestly, if I’m going to vote for the “lesser of two evils” then that is what I would have to do.

      But, like I said in an earlier post, if the only way I can write Ron Paul in is to carve his name into the voting booth table and fill the grooves with my own blood, I WILL DO IT!

      Write him in. Insist on it.

      Its take no prisoners and stare down the torpedoes time. This country has got to go the Ron Paul way or its going headlong into tyranny. If its impossible to go up, then we’ve gotta push it all down as fast and as hard as we can. We’ve got to get to the bottom so we can rebuild it. It can’t stay where its at. We are devolving into tyranny.

      You can yell at me all you want. If Ron Paul goes third party I’ll vote for him just the same.

      I admire and respect Ron Paul greatly, although I wish he was a little younger and could convey his thoughts a little better. I mean the man is so smart and full of good ideas and insight he sometimes stumbles over his words a little bit and to his haters it makes him look like a mumbler. But hey, nobodys perfect right? This whole Fakestream media report about a Romney/Paul alliance is nothing but a bunch of horseshit. Ron Paul would never sell out and I don’t know why the fuck Rand would even consider being Butt Romney’s VP. His daddy taught him better than that. I cant stand that MF’er Santorium. Does anyone else notice during the last debate how Santorium kinda rolled his eyes and had that smug fuckin look on his face when Ron was talking? I hate arrogant pricks like that! Nope if Ronny boy dont get the win Im writin him in!!! And if he sells out (which he wont the Paul name will be forever tarnished!!!

      The apathy and fatalism I’m seeing from some people on here is really disappointing. Actually it’s more than disappointing – it’s infuriating! This is a time to be passionate about a cause, not sighing deeply and saying, “Yeah, well, we’re screwed.”

      Some of you need to give your heads a big resounding shake – you are talking like quitters, like the deed is already done, boohoo….there’s nothing we can do.

      STAND THE F*&K UP AND BE PASSIONATE ABOUT YOUR RIGHTS!!!!
      Fight for them. Be the squeaky wheel. Boisterously insist on being heard.

      To back down now is to die.

      It’s not over until we all give up, and I know most of us here aren’t ready to do that.

      The negativity and the ACCEPTANCE of the way things are – those characteristics make you just as bad as the enemy.

      You folks that say there’s nothing you can do – you need to take a stand or get outta the way. You need to stop naysaying the people who are fighting for their own rights as well as YOURS. If you aren’t part of the solution you’re part of the problem.

      Why would I vote for mit? He’s a bag of shit from taxechuettes (home of the drunken boot leggin’ kennedys), closet anti-gun, supported obama care.

      Newt? Another bag of shit. Supported NAFTA. Wonder where all those manufacturing jobs went? Idea man behind “contract with America” (FAILED). Closet globalist. Part of the good ol’ boy republicans. Acts like he has new ideas but tows the party line.

      My take on the democrats and republicans: Democrats are not democrats, they are bomb throwing Bolsheviks, whittling away at the US. Democrats want to make communism succeed at any cost and show the world they can make it work. History shows that it did not and will not, look at the USSR. Democrats are rabid on tearing apart the Constitution, by hook or crook. They do not care. Good democrats are ones that no longer vote and have been placed 6 foot under.

      Republicans: they “used” to fight for the American Dream but now strictly support multinational corporations. Republicans went where the money is, deep pockets of corporations. Republicans compromise with the communists day in and day out. There is NO compromise with these pigs. Compromising and letting the reds have their way without a fight is not strong leadership to me. Republicans attempt to be the good sheriff riding the white horse with high moral values and fortitude. Give it up, shoot “bad bob” in the back and get it over with. Taking the moral high road is not doing them any favors.

      We’re tired of both parties scamming We The People. The American people have been ponzied and scammed to the point that a french style revolution is looking better and better every day. Throw the bums out by elections? Sounds great, until you start figuring out how much their retirement packages cost us. And then they come back as lobbyists for government contracts for big corporations.

      No, I’m done with both parties. They are not representing We The People’s interests anymore, they simply throw out the scraps and tell the little people that’s the best they can do. It’s because their deep pocket handlers are telling them to do that.

      My vote for Ron Paul is handing both parties a big “F*CK YOU!”. No more “you should vote for Mr. X because he’s a republican and that’s all we got to defeat the left”. This excuse no longer works. You keep throwing bags of shit out there and telling us it tastes like ice cream. It’s all or none, I refuse to take 50-60-70% anymore.

If you have a problem with drugs then don’t use them. If you like militarized police forces, SWAT teams kicking in doors at the wrong address in the middle of the night and shooting homeowners attempting to defend their families, and like having to produce ID and give address info just to be allowed to purchase Sudafed and cough syrup, then keep up your bashing of decriminalizing narcotics. As for me, I will choose liberty with all of its messiness and explicit personal responsibility over the tyranny of a police state put in place “for our own good”.

        As for your other objection concerning Iran, I submit to you the story of King Canute of England. You may not know this story as I suspect you had a public school education. I had one too but they were not able to kill my curiousity and love of history. Now King Canute commanded the waves to retreat while his courtiers and noblemen watched. In some retellings he even grabbed a broom and attempted to sweep back the sea. The point of his doing so was to show his followers that even a great king had limits to his power. The point we should take from the story is that even a imperial power like the United States has limits to its power. Do you suppose that we will be able to keep Iran from aquiring nukes in perpetuity? How about other countries? Will we forever be forced to increase our imperial overreach into every corner of the planet and stomp our jackboot into the face of every last person in every country to “ensure” our security?

        You want to know what would happen when Iran aquires nukes? Make no mistake, they will with or without the leadership of Dr Paul. With our provocations they certainly could not be blamed for wanting to strike at us or our surrogates. We have a long history of interference in Iran going back to the 1950s and the push to aquire nukes is as much about keeping us from doing to them what we did to Iraq and Afghanistan on either side of their country. If we had no history of interference and they nuked us out of the blue, you can be assured that a Paul administration would come down on those responsible with the full might of our country until every last fundamentalist mullah had assumed room temperature. A vote for anyone other than Ron Paul is a vote for further provocation around the world and an eventual nuclear attack on the US.

        Holland has all drugs (hard included) decriminalized. Not legalized, just decriminalized. They have one of the lowest crime rates in the world. Something to think about when “war on drugs” in shoved down your throat.

        “A vote for Ron Paul is a vote for a nuclear attack on the US”. Are you repeating after Rush or Ann? Or after Faux News maybe? Do some research and form your own unbiased opinion. Don’t just blindly believe everything you hear on TV and radio.

      I dont think they do
      they buy who and what they need regardless of political party affiliation
      they’ve donated tens of millions to Obama,who supposedly hates big business (stock market at 13,000,companies making record breaking profits)
      and they done the same for the Republicans

      Quotation by Carroll Quigley, historian for the CFR.

      “The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to the doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can ‘throw the rascals out’ at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy.”

      Now comes an anonymous person called “Ulsterman” who tells us that we must vote Republican to get rid of a Democrat. Mac Slavo, why are you posting this garbage from this mouthpiece for the “two” party cartel?

      I don’t give a rat’s a__ whether it’s Obama or Romney or Santorum in 2012. If Ron Paul’s not on the Republican ballot, then I’ll vote for a third party candidate. The Republican Party can go DIE.

      I have been lurking in the shadows of SHTF for over a year ~ reading, learning, often thinking that blood might just actually start shooting out of my eyes.
      With this political post I paused, gave it a good thinkin’ and in my humble opinion ~ what the heck has happened. This has become such a machine that we are debating ‘who is / what ticket is’ electable. How voting for Dr. Paul based purely on the fact that he represents what I desire, as a citizen of the USofA, to be my president has been degraded to mean nothing. This because the machine churned on, we become constipated on what we have been ‘told’ will fix IT ~ else you will live with the consequences. The very privilege of voting has become vote buying because of obscene amount of $$$ and political influence has the voter casting doubt on why he even goes to the poll. We are in sad, sad shape, folks. I am sickened to have my choice be “do I participate in the mockery” while my one wee voice says “I will vote for who will be represent me” because that what VOTING is for; and if the rest of the sheeple screw us to the wall then at least I know my vote was mine – not based on what might get us out of this unfixable mess. The debate is good until it becomes no debate, just a pre-programed decision.
      And the crowd goes wild without knowing the ‘fix’ has been baked in. Personally, I’m just gonna keep prepping. It is really the only thing I CAN control.

      • Weevoice, thanks for joining the conversation… I’m with you – all we can do at this point is prepare for the worst. Even if Ron Paul was elected President I believe we have passed the point of no return. That, and Paul’s ideas would completely turn this system on its head, and the transition would not be pretty.

          Kind of like how it was for many of our ancestors, the boat ride across the ocean and the accommodations on shore weren’t pretty,… but it was often better than where they came from and once they got settled in things became great. People need to focus on that imho. Otherwise, why prep?

            Maybe I didn’t word that one just right? What I meant was, the day after the federal war against some drugs is ended and lives are no longer ended due to the support of the fascists,… and families are no longer torn apart for victimless crimes, that day will be glorious, more so than any fireworks display I’ve ever seen.

            If some states want to continue the pointless bloodshed and spending time tearing apart bits of society in their state, that’s on their end,… but not everyone will go along with the same old, same old and some states will be nice to live in.

            When the troops come home and are reunited with their families and the war drum stops,… that too will be a pretty thing to behold.

            Clark: If you are alluding to “illegal immigration” as being a “victim less”” crime, tearing families apart, you are wrong.

            Illegal Immigration is not a victim less crime (as the statistics of crimes committed by illegals show) and it is a strategy by the PTB to undermine the Sovereignty of America, replace the US Constitution with the North American Union under the UN, and LEGALLY implement Agenda 21.

            One cannot support either illegal immigration or the managed trade of the GB’s and be either a Patriot or a believer in personal liberty.

            Both are strategies of the NWO designed to destroy America and the personal liberty that the US Constitution champions.

            They are anathema to individual freedom.

            “… men and women who will claw and save for a coyote, and ride that godawful train, at dead serious risk of being raped, robbed, tortured and beaten into medical curiosities left beside the tracks, who will cross into a hostile country whose language they do not know, and live in constant fear of being caught, all to feed their families and just maybe give them a better life in a better place – I think they deserve other than utter contempt.”

      Speak to your candidates strengths but more importantly look for common ground where together you can direct a collective focus on President Obama, his policies, his cabinet, administration and politics.

      No matter which one of these four men get the nomination, it is important to remember that we will ALL need to lock arms and support the Nominee. This is one election where sitting out in protest, or poisoning the well; does nothing but ensure your own demise.

Obama was selected to dismantle the USA through collapse of the currency, the economy and any remnants of the Constitution. His first term was only a preview; the second term will be the finish of what we know as America. The difference in America between 2008 and 2016 will be astounding! We already see the parasites feasting on the rotting corpse with the banksters, the war dogs and security culture.

      My consideration is the USSC as the next POTUS will get the chance to replace probably 3 Judges and this could severely damage the 2nd Amendment – lets not forget how closely we almost lost the right of gun ownership – just 1 (one!) vote. Obama will make sure the Supreme Court hears another 2A case if he’s still in the WH – after he’s stacked the Court with anti-2A Judges.

      Apart from all this, we have concluded it does not matter at all who wins, the FINANCIAL trajectory that America is on is TERMINAL – there is no saving it.

            Well sir…notice I used the word “FORCED”…which, in the context of this debate, implies that the goobermint must either kill or disarm myself & the millions of Americans who possess (light) weapons, courage, a deep commitment/love of the Constitution & faith in their Creator.

            I command no army, no heavy weaponry, no armor…I have no SF A-team or Ranger back-up…nor close air support of any kind. In short…I’m “shit out of luck” when the balloon goes up!
            But then again…so were the people of Afghanistan…& they’ve managed to fight NATO’s “gizmo-weaponry equipped” military to a stand still.

            I’m +50 & quite aware that I’m not a physical match for a 20 something Marine rifleman…nor are my skill-sets on par w/ a young Army/Marine (+1km) sniper….

            Yet, I can still sprint 200yds…I can put one in their chest @ 700 & I’m intelligent enough to understand my priority target is the guy w/ a scoped rifle & his spotter….and the second priority is the OIC(officer in command)!

            There are 100s of thousands of middle aged men(+40 & up) in this country, who know how to…”do things, make stuff & read between the lines”….they understand that in an insurgency scenario, you never attack the enemy’s strength head-on.

            You go after his weaknesses…you make him spread his resources thin…you overload his intel w/ false data…you deny him raw materials…you sabotage the infrastructure he deems strategic…..you force him into a “GREEN-ZONE” mentality/defensive mind-set……
            ….& above all, its imperative that you force HIM to become the primary recruiter for your cause!!!

            A revolution/civil war situation in the USA(should it ever occur), is not something that will be a month long affair…its duration will likely span years…w/ a corresponding death toll vastly exceeding all US wars to date….& the enemy knows this!
            Which explains their oft repeated mantras about…”population control”

            *********************************************************************************

            With regards to the current active duty military…..I have some serious reservations with their leadership(generals = starred cowards)….they did nothing when congress expanded the # of career(MOS’s) open to females…now we have them serving on Navy boomers & fast attack subs…& in Iraq, a few years back we had 7-8-10 KIA’d, captured & tortured/killed…..WTF man???
            IMO, women/females are to be protected, not used as cannon fodder!!!!!!

            Recently, the Joint Chiefs surrendered to the open & out of the closet “homo-sexual” brigade’s demands, to serve w/o retribution via the UCMJ……they abandoned their “men/troops” on a political battlefield…for the sake of their own careers!!!
            Such cowardice, does not inspire confidence to the rank & file grunts!

            The regime’s “command legislation” is designed to undermine & ultimately destroy the unit cohesion of America’s combat arms soldiers…..& still the generals have done nothing!!!

            Naturally, resistance is to be found at the E-5 to E-8 levels…your mid/senior NCOs….many are retiring/refusing to re-enlist.
            In reality, its an ideological purge, writ large….& the consequences bode ill, for this nation’s future!
            They’re politicizing the military, sir!

            ********************************************************************************

            I could go on for hours pontificating on this subject & analyzing its tangents…so for the sake of brevity, let me say this:…

            …I don’t expect to survive a confrontation w/ the goobermint. But I’ll do my level best to make it expensive for them, when they come for me!

            I am sick & tired of their shit. I understand “Joe Stack’s mindset & his motivation”, yet deplore his target selection abilities & modus operandii.
            I get the impression his effort was an impulsive decision, a (near) spur of the moment thing….he could have done a lot more damage w/ a little planning & there’s a bunch of smart folks here, who’ll agree w/ me in that regard.

            In the end Airborne71….should we find ourselves in a Rev #2 or Civil War-II scenario…

            I hope, that those Americans who refuse to resist tyranny will, at the very least…surrender their weapons, their ammo and their balls…………..

      But perhaps it’s what’s needed. Because I’m betting that if it happens, it won’t end up like the Russian Revolution. I’m betting there are enough freedom loving Americans left that we could bury these leftist tyrants once and for all and return to a free republic.

As to the military. Do the numbers, US forces and law enforcement combined are outgunned 300 to 1.

        Officers in the military that are “politically connected” would follow right or wrong orders, they’re in it for themselves and would be ruthless to attaining their goals. There is a small percentage that would not and split off or covertly assist.

      Fuck it, vote for Ron Paul. All this “you’re throwing away your vote and handing the election to the incumbent” shit is what we hear every time, and every time we get nothing but a clone of the last guy, but with a different name.

      If EVERYONE “threw their vote away” on Ron Paul, they wouldn’t be throwing their vote away, would they?

      So that’s what I’m going to do.

      Do you know why?

      Because all the other Republican candidates are ALSO Obama. Just like Obama is Bush. I am now 100% convinced of this.

      So voting for anyone other than Ron Paul definitely IS throwing my vote away.

      I’m hoping there are enough people just willing to stop thinking about all the fricking statistical angles and Paul’s “chances of winning” and just vote for him blind.

      Because rest assured, it will make zero, and I mean absolutely zero difference if Obama or Gingrich is in the White House.

      Zero.

      I mean if it wasn’t for Ron Paul I wouldn’t even vote. Why bother.

      So when they say a vote for Ron Paul is a vot for “more of the same” because it will dillute Republican votes, I say a vote for ANYONE except him is a vote for more of the same.

        DD; We, as a nation called America, are eluded to in the Bible. Not by direct name, but by God’s words and promises to the ten tribes of Israelites that were scattered around the world. If your ancestry goes back to western Europe, you are from that area that the ten tribes settled into after crossing the Caucasus Mountains and became later known as caucasians. The majority of early American settlers were predominately caucasian- Scotch-Irish,English,Dutch,etc.etc… the masses of other races came after the country was well established. That doesn’t make them any less American, so you liberal retards back off; I’m not a racist. We are all God’s children and creation. He said he would rejoin the “two sticks” again in the last days to become one again. God is still in control and these things must happen for a reason. America (not USA as in the government) is still the most blessed and free country in the world. Granted it is dwindeling fast, but it is because of the new generations of spoiled,Hollywood inspired,self-indulgent,liberal minded,lacking of spiritual truths peoples, that seek political correctness over common sense approaches, that have become the voting majority. It is a battle that goes back to the basic core of humanity, good (or what we presume to be good) over evil. Our leaders, as told in the word, will have the “minds of children” in the latter days. They are basically greed stricken and that is in itself evil. It doesn’t matter how many church doors they walk thru, it is how they negotiate and waste the taxpayers $$$ that makes them liars and frauds. Taxation without representation is what we have left.

      • When you say “too late” to what are you referring to?

        The spiral started with creation of the federal reserve. That was made possible 50 or so years earlier by the declaration of martial law that eventually led the to the corporatization of the government.

        It is never too late. It just take more pain and more will the longer it goes.

        I would like to rephrase your question as “What event would make you realize it is time to wake up?” instead.

        Since it is never too late, IMHO, all we have to do is wake up enough people and take the pain. People will die. People will hurt. People will be poor. But, in the end, people will be free. Unfortunately most people are not willing to sacrifice for freedom. They work themselves to death for a dollar but they won’t even read a few paragraphs for freedom. Its not a matter of if its too late, its a matter of misdirection and brainwashing.

        I will always fight for freedom. Its never to late to fight for freedom and liberty. Evil is always there. I wonder if the saints ever told God, “Oh, its too late to send Jesus. They’ve gone over the edge! They’re unredeemable!” I doubt it because they knew what God is capable of.

        I know what the American People are capable of. Given good information and incentive, it is never too late. Will get get those? I don’t know. I pray that they do.

            I see you feel passionate about this.
            I hope you agree that STDs and unwanted pregnancies (often leading to neglect and abuse of children) are two different things. And btw, birth control does not imply one should not use protection.
            Nobody here said that there should be no sex education or that morals should be cast aside.
            The problem is (and I am speaking from experience, as someone who actually counseled and treated STD patients): our society is very hypocritical nowadays. We expect “kids” to abstain from sex until marriage, yet, our TV feeds their hearts and minds with sex messages/images all day long. Look at the clothes sold for little girls, they are mini images of grown up clothes. The real values are being deliberately destroyed.
            There is no consistency in education (if one is even provided), they hear one thing and see another. There is often lack of communication at home, and certain school district (often the ones that have the highest teen pregnancy rates) do not allow any education on the subject. I can go on and on, this is a great subject and maybe one day there will be a topic where we can discuss it at length.
            For now I’ll just say this: dear parents, please talk to your teenagers, because if you don’t, they will get all kind of stupid (yes, stupid!) info from their peers and later end up in the clinic like where I used to work.
            If you don’t feel comfortable talking to them yourself (which is fine, it’s not for everyone), ask a friend or a relative that knows the teen and who the teen trusts to do the talking. The peer pressure is very strong and it is difficult for a teen to withstand it alone. The more knowledge they have about the way things “work”, the less are the chances that they will make a mistake.
            It is a wrong assumption that sex education CAUSES teens to have sex. OTOH, no education is proven by statistics to cause teen pregnancies and STD/HIV infections.
            Take care of your children.

    104. Has anyone looked up the definition of the word “romney”???

      BWAHAHAHAHAHA!

      Three words: “Defecate In Terror”

      In other words, to “scare the shit” out of someone will make them “romney”.

      Hey Mac, why did my other unauthorized polls get deleted?

    105. This is truly a sad article to read. You are encouraging people to discount Ron Paul and vote for *any* other candidate, when it is a FACT that Ron Paul appeals to Republicans, Democrats, AND Independents. RP can acquire votes from across the spectrum and is currently ranked in 2nd PLACE in delegate counts.

      If your readers abandon Ron Paul, “in this eleventh hour,” YOU are helping the establishment Neocons win.

      Santorum does NOT have a chance to win, and neither does Gingrich.

      If you want Obama defeated, you have to vote for Ron Paul. Do you know of any democrats that would vote for Santorum? Romney has the money to potentially win, but short of that, Ron Paul has the grassroots support to take the entire country, especially the Republican nomination. Perhaps you don’t realize that delegates are ultimately what matters, and we have taken over the primaries and county conventions in many states.

        Unfortunately this also applies to Ron Paul…

        So get ready for another 4 years of Obama or a Romney Admin that will suddenly turn against Conservative Values about 8weeks into 2013.

        DOESN’T EVERYONE REMEMBER WHAT HE DID IN MASS..?
        He’s RINO thru & thru and complete UNTRUSTWORTHY.

        We already see Romney now pushing Social Security back a few more years. This wont help SS from running out or the massive unfunded programs either. It just means many people will never be able to get back what they have put in for decades and have to work much longer their final years. And its going to get worse when you factor in high inflation, dollar decline and growing massive US debt.

        I was in Australia this January – guess how much 4gals of gas and a pack of cigarettes cost me? $50 AUD or 53 USD !!
        I could NOT afford to live there..!!

        Its also worth noting that gas in the UK hit $12/gal back in early 2008.

        I told family, co-workers and friends to buy gold more than 4 years ago. At $1773.60 it may still be a good asset to have. 1oz Silver Dollars are also good idea but these are over $39. See Apmex.com

        Dont believe the Media and Market hype – the Greece Deal is not set in stone yet, and the Market has been talking itself up for the last 2 weeks now and the BLS has been playing Unemployment “Fun With Numbers” bigtime. With an Iran event or Greece deal fails, Oil will go to $190, but gold may dip to $1580 for a week+ and then jump skywards as high oil will cause the US economy to crater taking the dollar will it. This is not the time to use the Strat Reserve as a band-aid either.

        Get ready for the Roller Coaster ride.. it wont be pretty.

        • How did ANY of that apply to Ron Paul, as well? You are talking about Romney, the white Obama.

          Ron Paul is a whole different caliber, my friend. Under RP, this country might…just *might*… survive and turn things around.

          I know we’ve been brainwashed A LOT about communism, but let’s not just repeat after McCarthy, but look at the definitions.

          Communism is a social, political and economic ideology that aims at the establishment of a classless, moneyless, stateless and socialist society structured upon common ownership of the means of production.

          Fascism is a radical authoritarian nationalist political ideology. Fascists seek rejuvenation of their nation based on commitment to an organic national community where its individuals are united together as one people in national identity by suprapersonal connections of ancestry, culture, and blood through a totalitarian single-party state that seeks the mass mobilization of a nation through discipline, indoctrination, physical education, and eugenics. Fascism seeks to purify the nation of foreign influences that are deemed to be causing degeneration of the nation or of not fitting into the national culture. Fascism promotes political violence and war, as forms of direct action that create national regeneration, spirit and vitality. Fascists commonly utilize paramilitary organizations for violence against opponents or to overthrow a political system. Fascism opposes multiple ideologies: conservatism, liberalism, and two major forms of socialism—communism and social democracy.
          Source: Wikipedia.

          And since fascism apposes communism they cannot coexist.

          Now please stop saying we have communism. You wish.

        Clark Kent,

        I share your fears and agree with your statement. Sitting home and not voting because your favorite candidate is not in the mix, is giving this country your stamp of approval for communism, socialism and total collapse of our freedoms and possibly the end of our future.

        A silent voice will never be heard. What will you tell your kids when their future is no longer in their hands?
        Well kids, don’t blame me, I didn’t vote.

        Your non vote is just the same as voting for what you don’t want. This does not make sense and regardless of how much you detest anyone but Ron Paul, no one in this race is as evil and diabolical and the Osama running this country now.
        With this kind of attitude, God help us all. (My vote doesn’t count anyhow), is an old lame excuse. Get out and vote like your life depended on it. You may be surprised when the ballots are counted. They want you to stay home, that is why they show their phony polls every day.
        I think this dangerous dictator is on his way out and I am going to help push him out of our white house, by voting for anyone but him.

        • I wholly disagree.

          My vote will not be given to anyone that does not deserve it. A Non-Vote IS a vote, in my books.

          And I will tell my kids and grandkids that I have spent the last 5 years of my life campaigning for and spreading the message of Dr. Ron Paul and individual freedom.

          My life will NOT be summed up by who I did or didn’t vote for, it will be graded upon my principles and integrity.

          And your vote DOESN’T count. Unless you are involved in your local delegate process, your popular vote means nothing. It’s the electoral college that chooses the President and when people say it’s rigged, or paid, what they are actually saying is that people like Romney have multi-million dollar delegate campaigns that are not publicized on television. He pays for people to be bussed into precinct meetings, county conventions, etc, in order to secure DELEGATES. That is all that matters, ultimately.

          So, I will be PROUDLY voting for Ron Paul and no other as a county convention delegate. I hope to go on to the National Convention and secure the spot for Ron Paul.

          I stick to my principles, and to what is right, instead of flip-flopping like Romney and some of the lovely commenters of this page.

            All or nothing attitude will get you nothing. Ron Paul can not be elected because he does not have enough support. What do you think Ron Paul would say about your attitude? Do you think he tells his Son not to vote because his vote won’t count?
            I stick to my principles and want my kids to know that I did what I could, by voting.
            You alone will not secure the spot for Ron Paul, not voting for the alternative against the current administration, is a vote for OBAMA.

            It is truly that simple.

        If my only choices are communism or fascism then yes, I would want them to grow up in a communist society.
        Before you argue, read my other post with definitions of both societies. Many here throw “communism” and “socialism” around without really understanding the meaning of those words.

        I have a feeling that many think Communism=former European Eastern block countries. Not so. They did not have communism. They had communist party. They we “BUILDING” communism but never succeeded.

        Sorry eeder, I won’t be seeing ya. I am not a saint by any means, nor have I claimed to be, but “ain’t” goin to hell for you or anyone else. Lived in HELL as a kid because of stupid,greedy and abusive parents. The Vietnam draft ended just months before my number came up, so I avoided that living hell. Many gave all and are still giving all for what they believe in; Freedom from dictators and terrorists. I salute them and appreciate their sacrifice, even if they really don’t know who they are fightin’ for. I am not alone in my priorities for freedom,life and survival. God,family,and country! Our country may get sucked down to the sewers along with the “evil” bastards that say they are a “government for and by the people”, but in the end (coming soon), we win if we stand for what is right, or as close to right as we have at hand. As bad as I hate the two-faced,lying,bilker of taxpayer $$$, Newter Grinch; I’ll cast my vote with dying hands for him,if thats all we got. So, call me f’in’ stupid if you like but I won’t make the same mistake I did in “08 by staying at home. Replacing the devil with another un-holy angel won’t get you a ticket to hell, and it just might save a few souls. Go RP and hope you get the nomination!

      Greeting Everyone!
      THE CHANGE is almost upon us and it looks like everyone’s arguing who’s the best choice for captain of the Titanic AFTER it struck the iceberg…..Personally,I don’t trust Mit,(far too shady a past,and he’s a baldfaced liar to boot).As for Dr.Paul,(I’ll give him at least a nod for his stance against “foreign adventures”!)he looks a bit old for the job(shades of Regan).Ol’ buddy Santorum(way too hung up on birth control and Satan)may love Jesus,but talks like a “home schooled” idiot who lies like old Scratch himself.Especially to deny his way out of the many tactless and unfounded statements he loves to make.This leaves us the current CIC,Mr.Obama.Didn’t exactly do the things he promised either,AND he is letting the Bankers off the hook!Dr.Paul looks like he’s is being railroaded out of the picture by TPTB.It won’t matter anyway,the whole thing is rigged with Debold pee-loaded voting machines.However,the economic tsunami we all expect is truly coming,on time and on target.If I were Obama,I’d LET Mitt win and let Mitt try to deal with the coming attractions.
      Just my thoughts…
      I’m sure everyone else has some too!!

The parasite class will always be there and they will do as they are told to get their checks, but we still have a constitution as weakened as it is.

      1. As much as I like the man, a write-in vote for Ron Paul is a vote for Obama.

      2. No one person has the answer. The next President will still have two houses in Congress to contend with in getting things done.

      3. It is in my opinion, too late to get out of this mess we are in. A major reset is headed our way.

      Holy cow, now somebody touched a nerve – over 400 comments. And I think the air needed to be cleared on this subject. There is really only two options on the horizon: conserve what you got (establishment), or liberally change it (anti-establishment). There is no lesser evil. Ron Paul is as liberal as Jesus was, and for nearly the same reasons – morals above political/religious laws. It’s not about how fast can we get to the collapse; it’s how fast we can get to recovery.

      An Observation:-

      I feel that the Nov event will be a pointless exercise too. But lets says only 100million bother to vote out of the usual 150million… Obama will get his 2nd term.

      When the US debt increases to all time impossible levels like $20trillion (2016?) and under-handed financial dealings become obvious and pointless too, then the USD tanks, inflation gets us by the throat and the folks that didnt vote get very pissy along with the ones that did. More so I dare say.

      You now have the flashpoint we are all afraid to speak of. Riots, heavy-handed govt crackdowns, NG in the streets and massive gov-media hype against everyone complaining. Basically you have a disenfrancised population that will make itself heard one way or another. And I would expect firearms to be confiscated along with gold assets.
