Weber has served in the Texas House of Representatives since

Why, he's the ONLY ONE still fighting Romney.
You remember Romney, doncha?
Ron Paul, the only one still slugging away - on the PRINCIPLE of the thing.
And who, exactly is Ron Paul?
The nutcase supported by fools and 9/11 truthers and Iran-loving idiots. Is this the worm you are referring to? To Ron Paul and all his supporters, I say “good-bye douches!”
You forgot to mention the pot heads. They've done so much to get Paul so far they deserve recognition.
I’m no Paul fan, but I voted fir him this week just to thumb Obama and Romney in the eye.
Its a quandary.
Paul was the only guy left that could throw the delegate count off and drag this thing to a Tampa convention.
Now we got Mitt
At this point I am tired of supporting the outliers to prove a point.
Ron Paul is an honorable man who served his country. People who call him Crazy or nuts seem to be war mongers that want to send our boys to their deaths. If they want to fight a worthless war with Iran they should send their kids not mine.....
And who, exactly is Ron Paul?
The guy whose supporters make the Free Republic He-Man Mitt-Haters Club look pretty normal by comparison.
Interesting that you seem to think that we are DEFINITELY headed for a “post-mortem” for this country. As far as I know the great majority of us here haven’t given up yet... and we WILL NEVER give up striving for true freedom, no matter what befalls this great nation.
As for your children - lucky for you the military is made up of VOLUNTEERS who give up their lives to protect idiots who fail to see that “non-intervention” isn’t going to work at this point in our world. [Jefferson was right in re: to entangling alliances, but that time is long past.]
There really are groups of people out there who could care less if the US is actively fighting a war or not. They want nothing more than to see us on our knees. We fought these same people back in WWII (which I’m guessing you aren’t aware of). AND, these people are now backed by countries that are our supposed “friends” as well (Russia and China) for example. If you believe that if we “leave them alone” they will in turn “leave us alone” then you haven’t been paying attention at ALL. Come join the real world instead of clinging to some idealistic view of the situations we face.
If you think the US is quickly descending into a “3rd world country”, pray tell in comparison to where? We are STILL the most free country in the world, despite the problems. We are STILL probably the ONLY country in the world that has a way to CORRECT the mistakes and raise ourselves up again, just like we did after the Depression.
As for Ron Paul himself, there are a great many things, particularly as it regards economics, that he is brilliant on. Foreign policy is decidedly not one of them.
Ron Paul does not have the public speaking ability to clearly convey his message - he’s great when writing, but gets tripped up talking. He doesn’t have a large following except in a VERY limited portion of our population - clearly not enough to affect a real challenge to Obama. Plus, there are the problems of HIS personal entangling alliances with Anti-Semites, and bigots. Nominating Paul would have assured an Obama victory, like it or not. I’m NOT a fan of Mitt Romney, but Paul wouldn’t have stood a chance.
Last, but not least by any stretch, if you’re really that convinced that the US is “gone” then why not move somewhere else where you’ll be more *proud*? Canada or Mexico are pretty close to California, ya know... In fact, why wait for the US to be a “3rd world country” when you could move to Mexico and actually learn EXACTLY what one really looks like... Depending on where you are in California, I suppose it might not look much different - what with your state being completely broke and all.
Romney is a stepping stone. We need to continue our battle to reinstate the US Constitution as the law of the land. A Romney win over Obama is a tiny victory but a victory non the less. Incremental people! Baby steps with rock solid focus on our goal will win the day. Will you please, all of you look at and realize this is a 50 year battle. Our short sighted view of political battles is killing us. We also must dig deep and sacrifice more dollars then we think we can afford. Like tithing folks. Do it on faith and do it like your grand children’s life depends on it. Our country is in peril.
Who is “we” ? The big gubmint RINO establishment coronated him, so let those imbeciles elect him over his tanner leftist brother in November (unless “we” can dump his sorry ass in Tampa). Until then, I’m voting Goode over evil.
“Our country is in peril.”
Yes, it certainly is - and I fear we won’t survive a second, unleashed term of BHO. Time is NOT on our side if that happens.
ABO, people! Obama is purposefully destroying America as fast as he can. And a second term where he has no worry about re-election would be unimaginable for most folks.
To the extent that he does that, all power to him. But if that results in him becoming the VP candidate, then it’s not worth it.
There is little that worries me more than the thought of an Obama second term.
Need to get behind Randy Weber. He was our State Representative for two terms and the cream of the crop. Strong business background, top true Conservative, honest, very available to his constituents, tireless, hard working and a man of his word. Harris served our area as City Council representative. A real do-nothing lawyer who, with Lampson, needs to be banished from the world of Texas politics once and for all.
I hope your kids understand Iran’s intentions better than you seem to.
CODE PINK Associations?
yes, we’re crazy to defend our nation, and ron paul is sane to call for legal hookers
lowering the age of consent for homosexual men to buggar little boys
legal drug use
arm the Iranians
yeah, that’s the sane guy
You Ronulans are completely insane
Excellent post #11. Well done.
He can solve them all!
Indeed.....yes he is. He is still running to throw the delegate count off. Or, at least, his minions are. They will be causing a ruckus at the convention.

What a Jerk Ron Paul is for blaming America for Sept 11th attacks!He acts like we are the problem really?
Muslim hatred and Muslim terrorism happens in every country Muslims immigrate to!Look at Thailand the Philippines they do not give Israel money or support Israel and they get attacked by Muslims & guess what they do not give money to Israel!Look at the Atrocity done by Muslims in Turkey/Ottoman Empire during World War 1 they Murdered 3 Million innocent Armenians in some estimates was as bad as the German Genocide of Jews!Every country the muslims go into they try to impose their horrible Sharia law!It is not Islamaphobia it is fact get your head out of the sand!You had a filmmaker Theo van Gogh who was murdered because he made a film about muslims!You had a Cartoonist a cartoonist who is threatened by death because he drew a cartoon of the Pedophile Sex Offender I mean their prophet Muhammed!How about the recent bombing in Africa in Nigeria of a Catholic Church those African countries do not throw out support for Israel or have military in the “Holy Lands” like senile Paul would have you believe!Ron Paul is full of you know what!Look at Sudan and Nigeria the Muslims kill innocent Christians and non Muslims by the thousands do they support or give money to Israel?NO!Ron Paul is a ignorant Senile old man!
Do we want endless wars or a War with Iran?Hell no!But they do not think like you and me!We do not war but Iran does The U.S. will do what it can to avoid it but if you got a leader like Ahmdinejad what can you do?

Thank god you are gone!You are not a honorable man you are a career politician and you need to go to the Retirement home and go away Ron Paul!Thank god you will be gone from politics soon!
The surrender monkey has never done a thing. That is anything that is of benefit to America. He has blamed America for every problem in the world, helped put perverts in the military and collected more earmarks than anybody running, but none of that has been a benefit to America.
Is that the one who claimed the Israelis made a concentration camp of Gaza?
Is that the one who apologized for terrorist bombers who killed Israeli men, women, and children?
Is that the one who allowed racist trash to be printed under his name, and then denied having any knowledge of it, just like Obama did with Jeremiah Wright?
Yep. That’s the one.
And for those who say he is a Tea Party guy and is honorable I ask,Would a Tea Party guy vote against Term limits?No of course not but he voted no on Term Limits!You call him a honorable man really?The man that says we deserved to be hit on Sept 11th!I call Mr. Paul an ignorant Butthole for statements like that!
