Ron Paul's supporter who stayed home or even voted for Obama deserves the next 4 years under Obama. The rest of us fought to stop the Obama Avalanche but some Ron Paul supporters would rather USA get destroyed than hold their nose and fight to stop Obama. Principled? I call it "Small-minded". Romney may not be the best candidate, but by letting Obama win, now USA will degrade by way of: 1. Obamacare is untouchable 2. Two Supreme court seats lost to lib judges 3. Blank check on liberal policies, now that O does not have to think about re-election. 4. Even more Liberal Tzars. The rest of us fought and lost. But at least we fought...

Those who voted to nominate a loser Romney are responsible for another 4 years of Obama.

The FACT that republicans refuse to accept.

It is the principled among us that you can count on to vote for freedom. You nominate a decent candidate, you can count on my vote.

Ya, that makes a lot of sense, you fight for a big govrnment progressive power junkie and it's our fault.

I don’t care what you think of Mitt Romney – it is intellectually dishonest to assert that Romney would have been one one-hundredth as bad for this country as Barack Obama. I myself was lukewarm toward Romney, but considering how unspeakably bad the alternative was, I sucked it up and voted for him. And if you did not do the same, then you are as much to blame for the horror story that is about to be visited upon us as that prattling jack@$$ in Ohio with her Obamaphone.

Don't blame me for your inability to see reality. Mitt *might* have slowed things down a little, maybe, but he wouldn't have changed course.

Romney, McCain, W. Bush, Bob Dole and George H.W. Bush.

How many times are you going to kick the football? Take the blinders off.

I know, a thousand points of light and all that......

In my experience with operating vehicles, slowing down is the first thing you do before changing course. This behemoth government has been growing out of control for – well, pick your benchmark; you could say 50, 80, or 100 years. Much as we’d like to, we’re not going to fix everything in one four-year term. Now, if there’s anything left after 2016, it’s going to be that much harder to fix.

The problem really is that republicans don't even want the same thing I want any more. They don't really want smaller government. They don't care about anyone obeying the Constitution. They just want the slow path to perdition.

I have all the evidence I could ever need that this is true. We have had candidates that would actually work on those issues and republicans rejected them.

Even with that being the case, if you screw up and nominate an actual conservative, you can count on my vote.

How much harder to fix? Every indication is that Mitt Romney loves big government just as much as Obama, just a different flavor.

So what do you get? Chocolate or vanilla.

Presidential candidate and long time Representative Ron Paul said goodbye yesterday on the House floor as he prepares to make his exit from Congress after 23 years. He explained his consistent views throughout the past two decades and berated Washington for refusing to change or make hard decisions when it comes to the future. 

As the father of what many characterize as the buoyant, bi-partisan New Liberty Movement, Paul shared “the plain truth” about Washington, America’s current national crisis and the greatest threats to the future.

Paul began by explaining his goals in 1976:...
