Is Ron Paul Romney's Lackey?
Ron's got some different ideas. No one is taking him seriously as a legitimate candidate. But he seems to be laying the groundwork to change the Republican party. So kudos to him for what he's out there doing.
But is he simply in the race to do Romney's dirty work? And why?
Paul doesn't seem to attack Romney, but he goes hard after every one of his challengers. First Perry, then Newt, and now Santorum.
Good for Santorum for calling it out. But what's really going on here?
Does Paul want to be Romney's VP?
Does he want something for his son?
Paul seems honest. Seems genuine. Seems consistent. But I have to agree with the sentiment that something strange is going on here.
Curious if anyone has any ideas? I haven't heard an explanation that makes sense.
Maybe he's doing it for Obama? Because no one I know likes Romney. Seems like he'd be the candidate to get trounced by Obama.
Paul shares flights with Romney, and they have worked together to coordinate campaign events. In Michigan, where he barely campaigned, he ran ads attacking, not front-runner Romney, but rather Santorum. Strange behavior if you're serious about becoming President.
Then there's his criticism of opponents regarding earmarks. Come to find out, Paul was one of the biggest earmarkers out there...see http://ricochet.com/main-feed/Ron-Paul-s-Earmarks. He would routinely load a bunch of earmarks for his home district into a bill he knew was going to pass, then he'd vote AGAINST the bill to come off looking like a fiscal conservative.
I had once considered voting for him, but I discovered, as more and more people are, that the Ron Paul revolution is a fraud.
Ron Paul is doing a very good job of getting delegates away from both Romeny and Santorum. THing that the media isn't putting out there is that Ron Paul is winning a huge percentage of UNBOUND delegates. So when it comes time to count them up, even though Romney won the state, Paul won the delegates. He's pushing for a brokered convention, and he has been from the start, because he knows he can't compete with Goldman Sachs (or however you spell it). If it's Romeny vs. Obama, then the true winner will be Goldman Sachs (since they're the major backer of both).
This is correct. Media won't advise you of the real events going on and the actuall grassroots activism that the Ron Paul campaign is getting. I have much faith going forward of a brokard convention... Not saying it WILL happen but we are certainly doing are best to get those delagates, because, after all, they are what matter in this nomination process for the Republican ticket.

There's an awesome video floating around YouTube about how CNN refused to shwo their own polls for who was the favorite (it had thousands of votes) and it showed Ron Paul had 78% of the votes on that poll. CNN instead showed ANOTHER poll (with a total of 54 votes), and it showed Mitt Romney crushing everyone and Ron Paul had 0% of the votes. Our system is becoming more and more corrupt and it's sad that most people refuse to look into the actual facts. they look at the stupid box to get their information and the VAST MAJORITY of it is wrong. CNN keeps pushing how many delegates Romney has down everyone's throats to get people to stop voting for Paul. Problem is that NO ONE has an actual count of delegates, just projections. Ron Paul has stolen many of these delegates right out from under the other candidates. AND he didn't have to do it FRAUDUANTELY like Romney.
I agree with you about the information gathed by the masses being off base. Ron Paul supporters are loyal and the fact that they are filling up so many delegate spots will make it very interesting come august if a brokered convention is reached. Keep your mind open and keep on seeking truth brotha(or sister).
