After the shameful treatment of Dr. Paul, there is no honor left in the Republican Party, nor is there any viable alternative with Democratic circles. I don't believe there are any parties out there to support the majority of Americans. There is only a corrupt policitical cabal, that is willing to hold onto power at expense. It is evident that the media, political, and financial elements wish to foster a toxic feudalism of contempt over the majority, and I don't believe the majority will buy into the Republicrat in shining armor is going to save us Bernais-control-the-masses mentaltiy will be enough this go round.

"Shameful treatment" of Dr. Paul? You mean the fact that the entire party didn't swoon and fall at the feet of the man, just because he had a head-in-the-sand foreign policy? Just because he wasn't concerned about the mullahs getting nuclear weapons? Silly us. Who were we to be concerned about a country whose leaders are on record as saying that they are going to destroy us and are actively trying to get the weapons to do it?
Sorry, pal, Dr. Paul shot himself in the foot when he announced that Iran wasn't a threat to America. If you want to leave the party because we didn't kiss his rear echelon, don't let the door hit you where the Good Lord split you!

I wish Paul supporters would give it a rest. A free people had the best opportunity to evaluate RP and he only garnered a small fraction of the vote. In fact, I could have voted for him had he been anything more than an entry line on the ballot by the time my state voted. As far as Romney being fit for the task and crystal ball gazing about it, who knows? At this point it sounds like sour grapes. If you get to say I told you so, then we will eat a little crow at your pleasure. Jowever, if you want to remain a viable part of the process, the time is come to close ranks. We do this again in four years and you get another turn, then. Now, vote Mitt Romney!

I hadn’t been to a Republican convention since the Reagan days in 1984.  Back then the whole experience seemed somehow smaller and more intimate.  Not that thousands of people crowding into an arena can be intimate, but you know what I mean.  I had been invited to be a guest in ‘84 because at the time I was appearing on the show “Dallas” and the PR folks thought it might make the Republicans seem a little more “hip” if a few Hollywood types showed up.  Of course I was awed by the spectacle and thrilled to be a part...
