That rule change at the GOP convention was more about the Ron Paul supporters going against who they were sent to represent to get Paul on the ticket. Don't believe me.. now he's stomping off with his toys demanding to be on the libratarian ticket. There are those out there that are willing to subvert their own party's rules to get THEIR man on the ticket, not to follow the will of the people they represent. THAT is what is scary, ladies and gentlemen. The fact that it happened in the GOP is telling. 1) that there are MANY factions under the GOP umbrella, which is not necessarily a bad thing; 2) there are those that are watching what is being said and done and go to lengths to maintain "order", which is a double edge sword.

Ron Paul has no intention of being on the Libertarian ticket. He hasn't demanded a darn thing. But, you go ahead and keep spreading lies to justify whatever your party wants to do.

LOL, yup, just as I thought mad because your man didn't get voted on the ticket. Look, I'm one of those "whishy whashy independents", and not too happy with ANY of the candidates, Paul included. If YOU as a Paul supporter can tell me any Bill, just one, that Ron Paul has sponsered and had at least one vote for I'll take another look at him. If not, then he's just another "all talk" politician that is little better than "present".

Stupid premise itsa. There's one that just went to Senate. But do your own homework. And what does being mad have to do with you spreading baseless rumors either through ignorance or intentionally?

HR 459, Audit the Fed. Passed the House with a 327-98 vote. Harry Reid has vowed never to bring it up for a vote in the Senate. Now, I ask you, if Harry Reid refuses to bring the bill up for a vote in the Senate and effectively prevents the Fed from being audited, will you call that Ron Paul's failure to get it done?

Ron Paul introduced HR 1146, a bill to end U.S. participation in the UN. It went nowhere. Is that Ron Paul's fault, or the fault of gutless politicians who refuse to take bold steps to secure U.S. sovereignty?

One honest man can only do so much in a corrupt Congress.

HR 3217, A proposed ammendment to eliminate birthright citizenship in cases where the parents are neither U.S. citizens nor owe allegiance to the U.S. This would end the anchor baby phenomenon, remove a major incentive for illegals to come to across the border to give birth and prevent the parents from getting onto welfare roles by virtue of their "citizen" baby. Dr. Paul wrote the bill and brought it before Congress, but they would not let it out of committee. But, it was Dr. Paul who was voting "present" and not the Congress, right?

Like I said stupid premise. And you said, "at least one vote". You didn't mention the Senate. But this is all semantics. Criticizing the (virtually) only principled constitution following congressman for what he hasn't accomplished by way of bills passed is ignorance on display. I'm curious. Do you believe that the majority of bills passed are constitutional and have an overall positive influence on the principles of sound money, individual liberty and true rule of law? I don't. The best accomplishment now would be to undue most of their prior accomplishments.

Thx hiim for two very good examples of bills that should have been a no brainer for any true patriot.

Those are just a few from dozens Dr. Paul has introduced. It seriously boggles my mind that the one guy who actually writes bills to do the things conservatives say they want done is the guy who is villified the most by those same conservatives.
By now you certainly know that the Democrats have been suffering from a self-inflicted injury since their convention began in Charlotte on Tuesday. For the first time in many presidential election years, the word God was omitted from their platform. The platform also failed to acknowledge Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Both of these breaks from Democrat Party tradition were reportedly ordered by Obama.

Then … another self-inflicted injury. According to reports, Obama ordered that God and Jerusalem be put back into the platform. That should be easy enough … just introduce an amendment and have the convention...
