Skip to comments.Sarah Palin August 2012: Don't ignore Ron Paul or his supporters.

She warned the GOP back in August many times not to ignore Ron Paul or his supporters or some of the issues he advocated.
Looks like Sarah was right.
Between what they did to her and ron paul - looks like the republican party screwed the pooch.
Romney the Meek and Backstabber Rove
were in it for the money.
I think Gary Johnson represented Dr. Paul and his positions in 2012 . Gary overwhelmed us with his 1% of the popular vote. (And he’s a decent guy). And then Sarah could have won the nomination and made sure Dr. Paul’s positions were not overlooked. I didn’t find her on the ballot either this past November or during the primary process this past winter. She must have been deeply concerned to assure Dr. Paul’s positions were properly represented.
If you watch the clip - she is dead on correct and specifically wanred the GOP what would happen if they marginalized him.
She turned out to be dead on accurate w millions less turning out.
If Romney even some lip service to things like ending the police state / NDAA etc - Gary Johnson would not have even run.
Of course i voted for RR, but I will say on too many issues there was little difference between him and obama.
Hilarious how the Gimmidats know enough not to piss off thier coalition partners...but not GOPers.
A huge meme on Facebook was that there was absolutely no difference between Obama and Romney. This was perpetuated by Ron Paul and Gary Johnson fans. I saw numerous graphics posted on FB and it’s easy for them to go viral, thus spreading their message.
Which is exactly what the GOP did, heh.
Personally, I think if the GOP is going to reinvent itself it’ll have to go more in a Ron Paul direction in order to provide a meaningful contrast. Being Democrat-lite will no longer cut it.
Bingo - the left knows how to keep all their core constitueciences in the fold.
The GOP-e is never going to win by putting up generic type candidates any more.
Not all the votes have been counted.
Palin knows how to appeal to every day people and has good instincts politicially on issues.
What was done to her by the establishment and MSM is criminal.
>looks like the republican party screwed the pooch.”....
They screwed all of us, not just the pooch. The Repubs are a disgrace and need to all be replaced.
Palin was right and as usual the GOP refused to listen to her.
Frankly, I don’t know why she bothers addressing the GOP at all. They wrote her off long ago and she should reciprocate.
Ditto Ron and Rand Paul.
GOP = nobody home
He might make sense on the federal reserve but he is kind of a nut and many of his followers are insane.
watch this - hard to argue w it.
So again, where was she in this race?
In other words; pay attention to the kook fringe racist, America-blaming, dope pushing Ron Paul or his cult won’t respect you.
If I recall, the kook fringe racist, America-blaming, dope pushing Ron Paul teamed up with the Massachusetts RINO to undermine the conservatives during the primaries.
