Allegedly, the Great Demigod Ron Paul is going to make yet another futile run for the GOP nomination for POTUS. His followers will slobber, drool all over themselves, and be their usual vile, nasty, lying, cheating selves. Those of us who oppose their stalwart leader will once again be subjected to yet another season of harassment, intimidation, and attempted manipulation.
Ron Paul makes libertarians look bad. His followers make libertarians look bad.
This is a man who would not have approved of the elimination of OBL. He doesn’t approve of fighting the war on terror, but, he does flirt around with white supremacists.
Maybe Ron Paul’s vision of America and The Pink Flamingo’s version of America aren’t quite the same. It makes a person wonder about his followers.
For months The Pink Flamingo has been telling you that Ron Paul Bots are moving around, manipulating state primaries to get their little (losing) libertarian candidates nominated as Republicans. Well, want proof?
“…Libertarian hero Ron Paul stands to benefit from a little-known phenomenon stirring in New Hampshire: Fans of hands-off government are migrating en masse to the state where license plates boast the motto “Live Free or Die”—and where, coincidentally, the presidential primary season kicks off.
The “Free State Project,” as it’s called, makes a strong case against conspiracy theorists who are eager to point out that Paul supporters are “stacking” the critical voting state. But for a campaign notorious for loading any event featuring a presidential straw poll, will the advantage invite political scrutiny?…Today, nearly 1,000 Americans have moved to New Hampshire, and almost 10,000 more have pledged to do so within the next five years. If the movement succeeds, 20,000 people will soon be living in a Granite State community focused on libertarian, small-government principles…
“A lot of people who follow the rabbit hole of liberty have already lost their friends and family to begin with, because they’re willfully ignorant of something we believe very strongly in,” he said. “And what we’re creating is an individualist, intentional community, and I point out the individualist part because we’re not a commune or a cult or anything; people can live wherever they want.”
Now the project seems to have found its stride. Currently, 12 Republican members of the New Hampshire Legislature hail from the movement (state law requires a minimum two-year residency to run). The first free stater elected, former state Rep. Joel Winters, was a Democrat….”.
Thanks to FOX, Glenn Beck, and the over the top losertarian bloggers on line, there is this strange precept that Ron Paul is the man of the hour, calling the shots, and setting the state to wipe the floor with Obama.
Those who believe this have a rich fantasy.
Monday, on FOX, Neil Bortz made the remark that maybe it is time to fold the Republican Party if they can’t find a viable candidate.
Neil Bortz is a libertarian. Libertarians are doing their best to destroy the GOP. The Pink Flamingo keeps telling you this is the tea party agenda, a third party – Libertarian – and the destruction of the GOP.
“...The increase in Republican support for a third party since 2008 could be an outgrowth of the Tea Party movement, which is closely aligned with the GOP. The poll, which also assessed Americans’ orientation toward the movement, finds 60% of those who identify themselves as Tea Party supporters in favor of a third party, compared with 44% of Tea Party opponents. The opinions of those who say they are neither supporters nor opponents fall in between those of the two groups….”
Did he just reveal that the game plan is to destroy the GOP so that the libertarians can take over. He admitted that they do not want the social agenda, simply financial.
It is all about that duplicitous tea party.
If you look at the list of those who have announced for POTUS, they are all pandering to the extremely small libertarian minority. It is all about libertarians, who don’t want a social agenda, which makes their latest demand to reinstate DADT that much more puzzling.
Would someone please explain to The Pink Flamingo, who apparently is not quite with it, what the heck is going on here?
When it appears that Ron Paul may be driving the issue, then the the GOP is in serious trouble. Juan Williams thinks he could win. Williams is wrong. Ron Paul will ensure nothing but Barack Obama’s reelection.
“...Here’s a news bulletin — it is becoming increasingly clear that we are living in a time when Republican politics are being shaped by a 75-year-old, 12-term Texas congressman with a son in the Senate. And incredibly, it is no longer out of the realm of possibility that this outcast of the GOP establishment may win the party’s presidential nomination.
If you have not been paying attention, it is time to look around and realize that we are living in the political age of Rep. Ron Paul.
A CNN/Opinion Research poll released late last week shows Paul faring the best against President Obama of any potential Republican candidate. He trails the president by only 7 points, 52-45 percent, in a head-to-head matchup. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee trails by 8 points, with former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney down 11 points to Obama….”
I don’t know about you, but The Pink Flamingo is a bit disappointed in the way this crock of a poll is being presented:
“…Who does best against Obama? Paul. The congressman from Texas, who also ran as a libertarian candidate for president in 1988 and who is well liked by many in the tea party movement, trails the president by only seven points (52 to 45 percent) in a hypothetical general election showdown. Huckabee trails by eight points, with Romney down 11 points to Obama…The CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll was conducted April 29-May 1, with 1,034 adult Americans questioned by telephone….”
There is NO way one can even begin to extrapolate that Ron Paul is driving the issues for the GOP. Look at his numbers. It’s a crock.

“...The problem with Ron Paul is not his age but his thinking that has not quite jelled. But his unvarnished despair with anything governmental — the DEA and FDA certainly would not like the legalization of all drugs because that would put them out of business — is encouraging.
Ron Paul’s power is that he will not be the nominee but rather he will shape the nominee. A platform plank calling for the legalization of marijuana might cause the party to implode — or it might just blow up Democrats….”
We have one of two things going on here. Either the GOP is in ruins, are some of the more normal, viable candidates see the handwriting on the wall and are assuming Barack Obama is unbeatable.
“...It’s not just dissatisfaction with the field — Tim Pawlenty, Rick Santorum, Herman Cain, Ron Paul, and Gary Johnson — that took part in the first GOP debate on Thursday night. Even if the other would-be candidates — Mike Huckabee , Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Mitch Daniels, Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, Jon Huntsman, and Donald Trump — had all been onstage with the others Thursday, there still would have been plenty of unhappiness among South Carolina’s political professionals, activists, and ordinary people who just follow politics. Seeing each candidate as flawed, they focus on the unattainables — Chris Christie, Paul Ryan, Marco Rubio — who they believe might bring a fresh face and new hope to the GOP….”
According to Gallup, it’s all about the third parties, but if you read the internals of the poll, it’s a crock. This is a poll of “adults” and NOT registered voters.
There is such a problem with this poll. Just check out RCP’s recent numbers and you can tell the Gallup numbers are wrong.
Want more proof these people are out to destroy and take over the GOP?
“…Google your State Republican Party to find information about when and where your local GOP meets. Become a precinct committeeman/committeewoman, and drag your friends along to do the same. As a precinct committeewoman/man it is your responsibility to educate/keep informed the republican voters in your precinct, doesn’t that sound like just a little bit of fun? It is!
Once you are a committeeman/woman, you have a right to vote on local party business and this includes electing officers. Next time county elections come up, run yourself and your friends for chairwoman/man, secretary, treasurer, etc. First we take the Counties, then the States.
If we all get involved now, we won’t have the delegate problems we had in 2008.
Also, seek out the potential liberty Republican candidates in your local races, convince them to run and help them, or run yourself – Ron Paul needs more allies in elected office!
Ron Paul already ran third party once before, the result was almost no attention and a whopping 1% of the vote. Contrast his 1998 performance with 2008 and there is no comparison. With the lessons learned from past efforts and the momentum thats building – I truly believe we could be participants to something truly historic.
WE are the Republican Party!…”
