I look at every Ron Paul rabid supporter as a net loss of one vote for the Democrats or a no show for the Republicans anyway.

if they actually listen to Ron Paul, they will be shocked that they are backing him.

He is really a small gov. guy. I’m not sure why he is still in the GOP, more libertarian, but he is the polar opposite of a socialist.

I’m sure that there are some anarchist types supporting him, too.

Paul is the enchanter of the disenchanted. Drag him through a college campus, and he's like a human lint roller, picking up cat-hair covered pamphleteers from all sides of the political spectrum.

Not surprising. A loser attracts losers.

Yes, I’m not getting through either.

Maybe I’ve been hacked.

I tried through Yahoo search, and I still can’t get through.

Your site is probably being attacked by the Soros funded left wing hate groups, and other hate groups and the Paulites.

Here’s what I wrote: Guess I struck a nerve....

Okay, Let’s Talk Conspiracy
By Bob Parks, Intel Radio Network

I’ve been writing columns for a few years now, so I’ve had the opportunity to see patterns when they look me square in the face and, based on my recent encounters with Ron Paul supporters, patterns have begun to emerge.

When you look at some of the pictures of Paul supporters, you see young and old alike, but you also see the peace signs, the word “love” reversed in the word “revolution”. What one clearly sees is a bunch of disenfranchised liberals who assume they’ve found a welcoming new home.

They’ve clearly identified with the anti-war message of Dr. Paul. Obviously, these people feel betrayed by the Democrats with whom they voted for in 2006 after being promised an end to the Iraq War. Democrats clearly have been unable to make good on their many promises. While that’s not news to real Republicans, the anti-war left has been left dismayed, betrayed, and rudderless.

Dr. Paul has the attention of the anti-war crowd, thus he’s attracted them into his camp, as they won’t trust a Democrat, at least for the foreseeable future.

I say they “assume” they’ve found a new home because these are the same people who’ve over the last few years have loudly and proudly called conservatives every name in the book. They’ve called us “racists”, “homophobes”, “bigots”, “hate mongers”, “sexists”, and more. They’ve called me an “uncle tom”, “wannabe white”, and that’s from white liberals. Look at what they did to Condoleezza Rice, and were damn proud of it.

However, now they’ve found a “man of principle” who just happens to be a… Republican.

Just because they now find certain conservative principles acceptable, doesn’t make any of them the real deal, and like elephants, Republicans never forget.

Paul’s supporters claim to embrace his message of smaller government. However, these are the same people who demanded federally funded student loans and free health care for illegal aliens. These are the same people who always advocate some new program for the poor and disenfranchised. And now, just because they’ve found religion, we’re to just open the door, forget about the years of slanderous shout downs, and say, “Welcome home?”

When certain candidates or a party realizes they are hemorrhaging support, the first thing they ask is “How do we get them back?” I’ve heard no Democrat presidential candidate attempt to lure the Paulies back home. Maybe… just maybe, that’s because they don’t want them back.

After all, would any of us open the door to people who occupy our offices, infiltrate our meetings, protest us in front of your workplaces, throw paint on our war dead memorials, and shout us during presentations in which we were invited? And now they expect us to say, “Welcome to the Republican Party” just because they now demand we listen to them and their candidate?

You’re damn right; there are sour grapes and deep suspicions here. I don’t trust these people for a minute.

In the many emails I’ve received from the Paulies, I’ve been talked down to like a child, had my intelligence questioned, cursed at, and all because I committed the mortal sin of not mentioning their candidate by name in a column where I was taking Republican presidential candidates to my own personal woodshed.

Their emails are all about their feelings. It’s all about “me”, “me”, “me”, and damn anyone who won’t hear THEM out.

Someone has to ask what the real motive is here.

Should Paul get the nomination and bring his supporters into our party, what kind of changes will they demand to bring from within? Will they demand political correctness be instituted? Will they attempt to stifle speech they don’t authorize? Will they shout us down? In fact, all the traits most of these people seem to have on display are those the Democrat Party seems to have no problem jettisoning.

And they’re jettisoning them right into the Republican Party.

That’s my conspiracy theory. I don’t think I’m that far off.

I found lots of images that allude to this statement.

This - by far - is my favorite:

Bob this reminds of all the so called republicans in 2000 2004 primaries backing McAinal.

A real rarity in this life, a conservative gay gave me a heads up on how the gays were registering Republican to vote in the primaries to defeat GW and donating a lot of money to him. It was a well planned and coordinated action to fake support for McAinal to cause GW to lose in the primaries.

Of course not. Then again, when have leftists ever been rational?

Ron Paul is pro-RKBA. Pro-property Rights. Anti-tax and anti-wealth re-distribution. He's anti-Roe V Wade/Pro-life. Pro-free market capitalism. Anti-entitlement programs. Anti-Nanny State and pro-individual responsibility.

If he supported the war, rebuked the Troofers and the Move-on crowd, and was a little more selective about who he takes cash from (the recent flap over Stormfront comes to mind), he'd be an excellent candidate.

As it is, he's given his detractors so much ammo to use against him that all the good points about him are completely over shadowed.

I work in Austin Texas and see the same people who had Howard Dean stickers manically plastered everywhere, now plastering Ron Paul 08’ eye pollution everywhere.

"What one clearly sees is a bunch of disenfranchised liberals.."

Or you could be wrong.

If you are trying to discredit Establishment Republicans, don't compare them to Ron Paul 08' supporters. It makes the Establishment Republicans look totally sane and rational.
