Glenn Beck said this morning on his radio show that if Newt Gingrich is the nominee and Ron Paul runs third party, he’d consider voting for Ron Paul over Newt Gingrich, and he hates Ron Paul’s policies on the Middle East:

This is suicide and it doesn’t get any simpler this: voting third party on our side for whomever guarantees Obama a victory. That’s it. And if Newt’s the nominee and Beck wants to go that road, then I tell him what I tell others: enjoy the hell that will be a second Obama term.

I’ve made my position clear about Newt. He’s not my guy, but if he’s the nominee, I’ll run to the polls to vote for him and I’d encourage all of you to do the same.

  • AMEN SCOOP!

    • Amen? Both Newt and Obama love big government. I’d rather have Obama destroy the nation than Newt. If Obama gets reelected, at least we might get a real candidate in 2016.

      • When talking about issues Newt has sometimes has some strange ideas, but his record in office is clearly conservative. I can only conclude that you would like to see Obama finish destroying the country.

        • His favorite president is big government Teddy Roosevelt. He praises huge “national greatness” federal spending boondoggles (rail, canals, NASA). He’s championed goofball techno-mystics and called for a world governing body to help people deal with all the confusing technology that surrounds us. He lobbied for FANNIE (despite his lies). He’s an enviro-nutjob. He supports expanding medicare. He’s a protectionist who supports huge ethanol subsidies. He’s an imperialist who giggles at the thought of launching new wars. If that’s what it means to be “clearly conservative”, then Obama is George Washington.

          • You must have been sleeping for the past decade. I would guess your an obama lover anyway. Newt is a better choice than the commie-pinko bed-wetting socialist obumble.

                  Losing battle, Jim, first, RP has no chance of getting the GOP nomination, and if he goes third party, he has no chance of winning the election. All that will do is guarantee another 4 years for Obamanation to “finish the job.” You guys rant about RP’s stand on constitutional principles, yet what part of “We the People” doesn’t RP understand. He may have the best of intentions, but he is blind to what he is doing, driving his personal agenda over the good of the nation.

                • Well said Moose. If RP “loves” America so much, why would he put himself in a position to siphon votes away for a candidate who can beat O’Bama? RP stands NO CHANCE of winning the presidency.

                • That statement is insane! Who gives a damn if somebody can beat Obama if he isn’t better for the country than Obama is? I have always been a good little republican drone and voted for the republican candidate. NO MORE! I will vote my conscience. I would rather have total freedom than just a “Little more freedom than I had before”. Newt has a despicable voting record in many regards, which is well known to all. When it all goes to hell either under Obama or the new republican “savior” that will just keep up the status quo. I will say I voted my damn conscience for a man who did more with the constitution then wipe his ass with it!

                  Sadly it seems the GOP has found THEIR candidate.
                  Same thing happened with McCain.
                  Totally ignored the people and shoved McCain down our throats.

                  All the talk of taking back our country our White-house no more RINOS?
                  Where have all those people gone?

                  We had people backing anyone that was not a born and bred Politician.
                  Now we have people claiming better than the OTHER guy..
                  Better than the Other Guy lost a seat in DC ..but on principal it was the right move.
                  Sent Shivers through the GOP..

                  Sadly the GOP is getting comfy all over again.. What Have they done but whine, we got the BEST we could get.. BUDGET cuts?!?! and our House Leader is pulling compromise or golfing with Obama?
                  Is that what Newt voters want just another passive, go along, pat each others backs, Congress Senate and President ?

                  Grow some and get behind Dr. Paul.. all your getting is the truth from him and ” lip service” from egotists..

                  Turned my stomach to read he took out a *new contract, promised fidelity to his latest wife.. that is what you want leading America? His mate is none of my concern, however, once a cheater always a cheater. ..

                  Instead of town halls he is holding books signings. Shows me right off he is in it for the MONEY and I can imagine will attempt to take his side arm on Better vacations then Moochelle got..

                  Wake up people either we are serious enough to stop the same old or we get back in line, serfs for the GOP. Stay the same course and relive the nightmare over and again.

                  Ron Paul or we gain nothing..

                  Newt a bigger ego then Obama and mark my words he will attempt to out due EVERYTHING O did. Starting with the vacations, the bracelet, the designers and imagine how many assistants his “Callista” will need..

                  I really don’t care about Newt’s private life and neither should anyone. So he cheated on the wives, maybe they deserved it. You only read the what the media wants you to read. As for RP, he is unelectable. He has some good ideas but he is a nut job. He is an isolationist and in the world I live in that can’t be the US position. I am an ABOIST! All that is happening is the same as last presidential election. The Driveby Media is giving us the choice it wants on the ballots so that BerrackO wins and finishes destroying our way of life. Remember, BerrackO has gone against ALL that is American and has gone against all of our staunch allies. Remember when he sent back the bust of Winston Churchill. This man is out to destroy the US. If Newt is elected, I will vote for Newt. If RP is elected I will vote for RP. If Bachman is elected I will vote for Bachman. It’s not a Democrat/Republican thing. It’s saving our country from socialism/communism. BerrackO IS a COMMIE.

                • I like your approach. You say who you like but also say that you will support others as well if needed to beat Obama. I have considered Newt also and feel he could debate Obama very well and the polls show this. At this point I am backing Ron Paul but will also do what needs to be done in November. But my fight will not stop there because my goal is limited government, fiscal responsibility, and free markets so I will have to keep going for more change and to take out more incumbents in 2014. If this is all of our goals then we will all ultimately win in the end.

                  Are you totally insane? Any of the Republican candidates would be better for the country than Obama, the Marxist, who is committed to the destruction of the country. Ron Paul doesn’t stand a chance of being elected President, either as a Republican party candidate, or as a third party candidate.

                • Our original patriots said “Give me liberty or give me death” I say “Give me a moral and good president. Who’s highest value is the constitution or give me none”! No In between, no compromise. If the presidential nominee does not support my values he does not get my vote. Every patriot on earth should agree with that reasoning. If you do not, you are committing mental fraud, and reasoning abortion! Never again will I vote any other way, EVER! You are probably right. Ron Paul probably doesn’t have a chance. Since he represents my ideals though, I would be a sell out not to cast my vote for the man. People who vote just to get somebody out of office need to examine seriously the ramifications of voting that way. Maybe they will oust the bad guy. To often though you get something even worse, because instead of voting for the man who you agree with. You vote for the one you think can win. If you oust a tyrant you better be DAMN sure you have something better to replace him with otherwise you end up with Egypt,Iran,Libya, the list goes on and on. You may be right that “Any republican candidate will be better than Obama”. You know what buddy, Cat shit might taste better than dog shit to! I choose to eat neither and go with the steak!

                  I totally agree, but I think RP has a better chance than people give him credit. I have had it with holding my nose when I cast my ballot as I believe have many in the electorate! Give it a month or so. Newt’s campaign will implode and when that happens, Ron Paul will pick up most of his supporters. Worst case scenario, the Marxist in Chief wins in 2012. The Republicans will pick up the Senate and retain the House i.e Obama’s agenda is halted!

                • Hey Deduce, I totally agree with you. If RP breaks out and the crap stops, they will not be able to stop him and it will be a land side from that point. This is what they are trying to prevent.

                  Oh, and if someone wants to say I am wrong then stop the negative untrue attacks and watch what happens. Dare you.

                  I’ll agree with you in one area, that we have to get back to Constitutional government,as interpreted by the Founders. Both parties have only given lip service to that document, their primary focus being power and privilege and the retention of same.
                  I too am tired of voting for the lesser of two evils, but we are at a tipping point in this country, and the primary focus needs to be getting Obama out of office in 2012. Once that is accomplished, we need to get rid of the establishment Republicans, replacing them with candidates dedicated to the downsizing of the federal government and dedicated to the Constitution.

                • Why do you have to be so negative about Ron Paul when he is actually doing pretty well. He is statistically tied with Santorum, and Mitt where they have 7 delegates each. Why not just talk positive about the person you support because that will not win over me to support your guy if you are attacking mine.

                • Anonymous

                  You sound exactly like a friend of mine who helped Clinton win by voting his conscience for Ross Perot. Ron Paul is the new Ross Perot and will be remembered in the history books exactly like Perot and Nader are. Worthless idiots who helped the wrong guy become president. If you are a conservative (which most Paul supporters are not) then you couldn’t stand by and watch Obama win another 4 years. Most of Paul’s support comes from college age kids who believe he will legalize all drugs and cut back the military and get us out of the war zones. Anyone who believes this is an idiot and anyone who wants these things is a libertarian fool.

                • Your friend didn’t help Clinton win! Bush did. Maybe Bush should have dropped out of the race and let Perot run solo so the vote wasn’t split OHHHHH that’s right. It is only bad if a third party splits the vote not the republican right? If republicans think the vote shouldn’t get split maybe the republican candidate should drop out and let the third party candidate run solo against opposition. Then third party supporters could tell republicans to “Hold your nose and vote for our guy” You are right. Most Paul supporters do want drugs legalized and history tells us [impossible to even debate by the way] that prohibiting products people want especially addictive ones leads to crime,fraud, gangs, and federal spending! Remember Copone? You are also right that we want our troops we pay for back home to protect us here which by the way is the only thing the Constitution authorizes! [again inarguable point, it is simply true.] These guys are not “worthless” they are patriot constitutionalists. How do you know his ideas are wrong or won’t work? Can you tell me where in the last hundred years we have tried them to know? Libertarians are what conservatives claim to be and what liberals wish they could be!

                  Ron Paul 2012

                • Obama is better than NONE of the GOP candidates – criminal actions, socialist/communist endorsements, least transparent of any POTUS ever, spends MILLIONS to hide personal records, Both he and wife lost their law licenses, a law he had just signed required him to fire 4 czars – he refused to follow that law, highest welfare, highest unemployment, largest deficit in just 3 years, worst political cronyism, only Christian belief is GOD D*** America, criminal associations would not allow him or wife to accept employment in the FBI, He passed 2800+ page ObamaCare and we are STILL learning the price we will have to pay for that, endorsed by Hamas, Unions, SEIU, worked as attorney for ACORN before he lost his license and ACORN was disqualified for fed funds so they split into 4 different differently named groups so Obama could re-fund them, etc., etc., etc.

                • I agree with you 100% but the fact remains that the GOP has been relying on just what you state for a very long time. I really believe that this election will split the republican party and give obama his unearned victory. Just like when Ross Perot split the vote with GH Bush giving Clinton the victory, Paul or another conservative candidate will emerge as a 3rd party candidate. Many people will vote for the 3rd party inspite of giving the win to obama. It will be a matter of principle to the many disgruntled conservatives who are tired of having their vote taken for granted by the republican establishment. I believe that is just what the democrat party and the media have been planning. obama can not win by running on his record one on one. His record is one of monumental failure.

                  That messes up the status-quo, and we just cannot have that!

                • First off I have been on many blogs and the attacks against Ron Paul are just terrible and untrue. It is okay to make your pick but I could not even say I was an RP supporter and then have any kind of dialog with anyone about why I like my guy and who I may also consider without attacks everywhere. Kind of seems like 2007-2008 where in the end I also worked for McCain but yet I was to blame for him losing. If your message sucks and you do not want to limit government, and you lose, it is you and your candidates fault for not working to get the votes. But if you choose to push away votes do not blame them for your loss!

                • RP? Is Ross Perot running again? Look what happened the last that twit …. Oh, not Ross Perot. Ron Paul, you say? Well, that’s different then. Only not very much.

                • He is wiser than anyone who calls themselves ‘conservative’ yet supports big government Newt. Newt and Obama are the same. Look at Newt’s history. If you have to hold your nose while voting for a scumbag, then everyone loses.

                  Of course, somehow republicans have come to believe that “Peace, Freedom and Prosperity” are nut job ideals. Go figure.

                  How about people who call themselves conservative and vote for a man who would weaken the country by legalizing drugs, allowing illegal aliens to come here in droves, and wants to weaken our military even more than the liberals do? That’s what Ron Paul will do if he has his way (which he won’t because the house and senate will thankfully stop his crazy ideas). He’s a libertarian so why doesn’t he run as one? He is crazy and will only help libtards like you make us suffer through 4 more years of Obama.

                • Obviously you do not understand his foreign policy or his stand on any of the other issues you have mentioned. But not fare for the Newt attacks either. Really we all should focus on limited government, fiscal responsibility, and free markets. If we can do this and work together we will be better off and have a higher chance of succeeding. Remember this, the elite in the GOP want Romney and I do not like someone making my choice for me. Personally I think Ron Paul sends a bigger message to the GOP but either way we have to get past this hurdle if we are to ever get a go at Barrack. One thing I do want to say in RPs defense though, there is no candidate who will have the power of all branches and will not be able to get hardly crap done so to think one person like Ron Paul will weaken this country is just ludicrous. But again you were just returning the favor for the Newt attack which was not fair either.

                • It is talk like this that pushes people away. You do this and then later when you lose you blame us when the blame really just comes back to people like you who turn off people like us. Last I looked RP was doing very well and you may not like that but it is for that reason you should stop with the negative attacks because you have no idea how many people you are pushing away and you will then lose.

                • This is probably the worst election regarding choices for conservatives that has come along in many years. I thought the 2008 election was the pits but this fiasco takes the cake hands down. I predict another obama victory thanks to the republican establishment. The 2012 election will forever doom the GOP to a third party status as a true conservative party will be established and will flourish in time for 2016. It is imperative that the Tea Party takes control and begins in ernest to develope candidates for 2016. What they have done this year is unforgivable. Good bye and good riddence to the GOP.

                • If Ron Paul was for real, wouldn’t he, at least, question the Constitutionality of Obama’s birth? He said NOTHING! And then voted for confirmation of the election results in early 2009, because his election results were in that vote as well. Also, I agree with Moose.

                  It is a mystery why we are debating about either Romney or Newt with all their baggage when we have Bachmann, who is clean of scandle, articulate, extremely knowledgable of foreign issues due to her position of the Securty Committee, a genuine conservative with a track record of not buckling under fire. Plus, she would trump the first partially-Black president with a fully-Woman candidate to bring in the woman vote to counter Obama’s black base. Add a Hispanic VP and the Democrats would watch two of their bases dissolve before their eyes. Michelle is like a like a wide-open football reciever franticly waving inside the goal zone, while the quarterback is focusing on two other recievers completely covered by the opposition. Come on!! Wake up!! And if you think she can’t win because she is a Woman, you are part of the problem, not the solution.

                • Newt is intelligent, but he is a ‘liberal’ who supported a single payer mandate, climate change legislation (along with 400 other co sponsored bills with Pelosi), the forming of the unconstitutional department of education, the irresponsible loans from Freddie and fannie (in fact, while Ron Paul warned of the danger caused by these loans, Newt attacked him). Newt has been a friend to lobbyists and special interests (even bragged about it). His spending and domestic policy match Obama’s quite nicely.

                • Both labeled as crazy because they believe in Peace and Freedom? I’m in. I support peace and freedom.

                  I also support cutting government size and scope. Are you a loony like me or do you want papa government to let you keep suckling from their teet while they protect you from ‘evil’ and yourself?

                Ron Paul has more in common with Obama than Newt does. Both Paul and Obama hate America. They both abuse the constitution for their own gain. They both hate the military and want to weaken it. They both such at foreign affairs and they are both bat crap crazy.

              You mean that same Newt who gave us Department of Education in 1979?
              That same Newt who took 1.8 Million in bribes from Freddie Mac looting the tax payer?
              That same Newt who took 37 Million in bribes from medical lobbyists to push ObamaCare?
              That same Newt who gave us Fairness Doctrine, so we would be forced to listen to Rachel Maddow and Olbmermann?
              That same Newt who gave us gun control, so when Obama and Newt invade and burn our house we are totally helpless?

              Newt is the greatest enemy of America. Newt will bury us.

              • The Fairness Doctrine was a policy of the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC), introduced in 1949, that required the holders of broadcast licenses to both present controversial issues of public importance and to do so in a manner that was, in the Commission’s view, honest, equitable and balanced. The FCC decided to eliminate the Doctrine in 1987, and in August 2011 the FCC formally removed the language that implemented the Doctrine

              • Just a life tip for you Sanjay, if you want anyone to actually take you seriously and not just laugh at you like a funny clown try being factual. I know that is tough for you liberals, but give it a try you might find that people pay you more notice.

              • angelccorr

                @Sanyay, JIMMY CARTER created the Department of Education, and the Fariness Doctrine was created long before Newt was ever in politics! Newt was against Obama care and consulted for Freddie Mac.
                It is terrible to try and destroy someone’s character with lies.

            • An “Obama lover” criticises big government, federal spending, Fannie, environmentalism, entitlement expansion, protectionism, and an interventionist foreign policy? Have you ever once turned your brain on, Bob? Newt is just as much a commie-pinko bed-wetting socialist as Obama.

            • Notice, no substance in your response. No rebuttal to the facts, just an emotional appeal to support the “home team”. Thinking is dead – and with Newt, so will be conservatism.

            • Uhhh and who is the one who has been sleeping there Bobo. Newt is just another slimeball like obama and pelosi look at his record you twit.

            • Yes, ANY GOP candidate is orders of magnitude better than Obama. You can vote your heart in 2016 if Obama has not already become our dictator, but in 2012, if you want a chance to beat Obama, you MUST vote, and you MUST vote for the GOP primary winner – anything else re-elects Obama!

          • No – it’s even worse, Gingrich’s favorite president is the OTHER Roosevelt – FDR. Gingrich is fascinated with social engineering – and not the “right wing” kind either.

              You guys are such retards. I don’t know how many times Newt has said that Renaldus Magnus is his favorite president. You don’t listen to him so you just suck up the leftist talking points as if they were gospel. How pathetic.

              • Ronald Reagan was a deficit spender. Of course Newt like him.

                Ouch, did I just hurt your feelings? Ronald gives you ‘conservatives’ tingles just like Obama does Chris Matthews – but Ronald started the trend of government growth and spending. If you like big spenders, like Reagan, then Newt (or Obama, same difference) is your guy!

                For me? I like small government, peace and freedom. Which is why I don’t support Newt. (Or Obama)

Sorry Newt is a much better choice than Obama, no matter what false dichotomies the Obamabots dream up!!

              Really, is that all you’ve got?

          • I have voted republican for nearly 20 years and will only cast my vote for Ron Paul. Newt is a joke candidate. there are so many things that I disagree with him and romney that I can’t even begin to name them. Ron Paul 2012

            • You do that. Then sit back and enjoy 4 more years of O’Bama. I only hope I get the chance to ‘thank you’ personally. Idiots like you shouldn’t have the right to vote.

              • Do you hate Obama, or his policies? I think his policies are the problem, not his unlikable personality.

                Now Obama supports healthcare mandate (so does Newt)
                Obama thinks government can save the world (so does Newt)
                Obama loves special interests and lobbyists (so does Newt)
                Obama thinks medicare needs expansion, not reformation (so does Newt)
                Obama thinks we need to be in 4 wars (Newt also! Plus Newt supports one more, so make it 5!)
                Obama supports social engineering through freddie and fannie and subsidies (you guesed it, so does Newt!)
                Obama has a character problem (Newt might even beat Obama here. 300k paid due to ethics violations. REPUBLICAN senators on the ethics probe have vocalized their inability to support Newt because of what they know relating to the ethics probe. And that is his professional life… his private life is just as bad.)

                So you can get rid of the annoying Obama and replace him with the marshmellow man (Newt). He will look different and sound different, but he won’t act different.

                Of course, you will think you saved the world (and the country) by voting in another corporate shill who loves lobbyists, big government and corruption.

                And yet those who support the only consistent candidate who has fought Newt’s unconstitutional bills and programs for 30 years are ‘crazy’ and ‘don’t deserve to vote’

                The fact that the Republican party has labeled peace and freedom as ‘fringe’ is the reason the Republican party needs to die.

The time of those who have brought us trillions in debt, wars we don’t need, and assholes that would rather tow the party line then do the right thing is OVER! Even if Paul doesn’t win his the election his ideology has already changed the political landscape and FOR THE BETTER! You can’t convince us that the millions toiling in prison for smoking a plant is right, you can’t convince us going to war with two countries when the terrorists never came from those countries is right, you can’t convince us that swapping one constitutionally destructive tyrant for another is right, and most of all you can NEVER convince us that fifty years of policing the world has been a good idea! We have proof, and history on our side! How many times must this man be proven right in Iran we got a dictator, in Libya genocide, in Egypt the Muslim brotherhood, in Iraq an insurgency lying dormant, in Afghanistan Al-Qaeda is stronger than ever! Oh how history has proven Ron Paul right! He said the economy would tank as long as our money was controlled by a paper system allowed to create bubbles through inflation and deflation, pop them, and rape us all! It’s happening NOW! You are living through it! How much more do you people need? You seriously want to consider trading this man for NEWT GINGRICH? Get a hold of yourselves!

        • “Finish destroying the country”? You mean, trying to undo what your party did to the country from 2000-2008? Come on, that’s just biased. What has Obama done to destroy the country? Get us out of Iraq and end that black whole of spending. Find and kill Bin Laden? Approve and execute the strategy in Libya that ended up perfectly? Try and pass health care legislation for poor people? Stave off a depression and at least show some job growth? Watch the Dow Jones basically double since he took office?

          You had your 8 years of plundering and warmongering. We get another 4 to try and undo the damage.

          Halliburton Rules!

          • You forgot to mention that he also cured cancer and made broccoli taste like cheeseburgers.

            • Naw…I don’t like cheeseburgers ’cause I’m a card-carrying liberal vegetarian! Ha ha…seriously, not a huge Obama fan, but I am liberal. But to accuse Obama of destroying the country and then propose to “fix” it by repeating the same policies and philosophies that the right espoused for 8 years of foreign and domestic policy disasters is just not fair.

              • Anonymous

                And where was the break from those policies with the current administration?

                The Bush administration increased the regulatory state at the fastest pace since Nixon.

                Did the GSE’s Freddie and Fannie get torn down with Obama? Did the idea of public-private partnerships go away with the new administration?

                Did the Federal Reserve get stipped of the power to create credit bubbles by artificially lowering the interest rates? Can it still monetize govt. and banker debt with us getting the inflation tax? Did the FED get stripped of the power to centrally plan the economy.

                Has the foreign policy changed?

                Has spending been reduced? Bush increased the size of govt. faster than any administration since LBJ. Obama has just tripled-down on what his predecessors were doing.

                The parties keep the same basic system in place.

                Ron Paul is advocating something different. You are too caught up into the false D/R paradigm to think straight. The party establishments are nearly identical. They just argue at the margins. The core remains the same.

              • “But to accuse Obama of destroying the country and then propose to “fix” it by repeating the same policies and philosophies that the right espoused for 8 years of foreign and domestic policy disasters is just not fair.”

                dude please do some real research, I’m honestly not trying to be condescending or rude, Bin Laden is a product of the C.I.A, no conspiracy theory, conspiracy FACT, it is WELL documented and not even concidered a secret the ties and relationship between our gov’t and the Bin Laden family. And thats just ONE area to research about your gov’t, start there and just go down the rabbit hole…when you come back up THEN we can talk…

                  But I have a really difficult time believing that a cover-up would not be exposed in this age of information and technology. There is not irrefutable evidence that 9/11 was an inside job, although I would not put it past the former peeps to pull something off like that.

            Out of Iraq? We’ve got a military base there the size of the vatican. The U.S. govt. needs 17,000 private contractors there permanently. That’s in addition to thousands of enlisted men.

            Checked out Afghanistan lately. The number of troops has went up. There are covert wars in Pakistan and Yemen. Obama invaded Libya. It’s chaos there now. A U.S. drone was just captured by the Iranians. Have you noticed the U.S. government’s saber rattling with Iran of late?

            The U.S. military budget is at an all-time high.

            The health care legislation just takes us further down the socialist/corporatist road we’ve been on. We haven’t had a free market in health care in 50-years. We don’t need more govt. there. Bush expanded Medicare at the fastest pace since its inception. Obama is just doubling-down on Bush.

            The monetary system (Federal Reserve, fiat paper currency, planned interest rates) is still in place. It only benefits gov.t and finance. Foreign policy stays the same.

            Same unconstitutional govt. dept.’s are in place.

            It’s the same old same old. Nothing of substance has changed.

            I’ll be voting for Ron Paul. He’s offering a real choice.

            • Good points.

              Like I said, not Obama’s biggest fan, although I will probably vote for him. My problem is that Obama is not liberal enough…hasn’t gone far enough! Yup, I said it.

              I am against interventionism. I am for more government regulation of corrupt corporations and I am for less regressive taxes. I am for more spending on education and against more military spending. I am in favor of gay marriage, 420 legalization, great dark beer, loud Gibson guitars through Marshall amps, and hot chicks.

              Ron Paul and I don’t agree on too much, except for the non-interventionist military policy.

                Too bad Obama renewed Patriot Act.

                Paul is against all corporate welfare. Obama picks and chooses. Paul is against mandates, subsidies, and public-private partnerships. Those are all corporatist measures.

                Too bad that he doesn’t understand that the Federal Reserve is nothing more than a state-sanctioned banking cartel that is the source of the booms/busts and inflation. Inflation is a hidden tax. The people who get the new FED funny money first, i.e. finance, govt. contractors, subsidized areas, are the ones who get its full purchasing power before prices have risen to convey the increased supply of currency.

                Everyone else gets the new currency after prices have risen. Wages never catch up. The more dollar debasement/inflation, the greater the transfer or purchasing power/wealth.

                Paul is also much better than Obama on civil liberties. Obama has ramped up the war on drugs.

                The party establishments are taking the people for a ride. It’s a mock war. The parties only vigorously debate along a narrow band of “acceptable” establishment thought. There is no choice with Clinton, Bush, Obama, Newt, Romney, et al.

                Ron Paul is a break from all of this.

                Our monetary system is going down. That’s what is going on. Paul is the only who understands what is going on. That’s why he was able to predict everything that happened with the banks, Freddie/Fannie, stimulus, TARP, etc.

              • Do you know what Obama has done over the past three years? Basd on “I am against interventionism. I am for more government regulation of corrupt corporations and I am for less regressive taxes. I am for more spending on education and against more military spending. I am in favor of gay marriage, 420 legalization, great dark beer, loud Gibson guitars through Marshall amps, and hot chicks.” I don’t know how you can say you will probably vote for Obama. Apparently you are NOT “against interventionism. I am for more government regulation of corrupt corporations and I am for less regressive taxes. I am for more spending on education and against more military spending. I am in favor of gay marriage, 420 legalization, great dark beer, loud Gibson guitars through Marshall amps, and hot chicks.”

                  Bush increased federal govt. spending by three-fold. Result? The D.C. schools spend more per pupil than any other school system in the country. Result?

                  It’s not the money. It’s the system. There has to be more diversity. The federal govt. forces a one-size-fits-all system down everyone’s throat. That means there is no point of reference. How do you know if what you are doing is good when you can’t compare it to anything else?

                  Private schools, vouchers, home-schooling, or even community cooperative schools seem the best bet to me.

                  Also, govt. subsidization of higher education has pushed cost into the stratosphere. Colleges just set tuition high enough to capture all the subsidies. If costs were has high as they are now without the subsidies, no one could afford it. Colleges would be forced to make administrative cuts in order to lower prices. They certainly wouldn’t stand for no butts in the seats. There would be a tuition sale.

                  It’s my position that whatever govt. touches it destroys. Govt. is force. I prefer cooperation, civil society, and the market.

                  Look what happened when govt. wanted everyone to have a home. Freddie/Fannie were created to ostensibly lower housing costs. They did the exact opposite in conjuction with Federal Reserve’s cheap currency/artificially low interest rate policy.

                Ryan…have you heard of “regulatory capture”? Firms like Monsanto can strongly influence the USDA, firms like Goldman Sachs strongly influence and guide the SEC. Firms like Merck and GSK staff and employee and wink promise good jobs to the FDA decision makers in order to guide the decisions in ways they want? makes sense right? so when you argue for “more regulation” what really happens is you give Lockheed Martin, GS, GSK, Merck, GE and Monsanto MORE power…that is why they gladly support mainstream democrats and republicans… they take useful idiots that support more regulations and use that power to hurt the medium and small sized businesess…so to people who watch american business closely it was no surprise to see what Obama has done, he is VERY VERY similar to George W Bush if you support Obama then it is baiscally the same as supporting Cheney and you are dumb if you don’t think about this more and look into Ron Paul or someone else who actually wants to decrease the abilitiy of the corrupt companies to destroy individualism. You keep voting for democrats or mainstream republicans and your children will live in a George Orwell type world and you won’t be abel to afford dark beer and a good guitar and you will probably be in prison because the democrats are horrible ont he drug war issues as well. prison population is still rising with obama…Ron Paul wants to END THE DRUG WAR…MERCK AND GLAX SMITH KLINE AND ANHEISER BUSCH DON’t

                  BAM!!! Bullseye!

              • Ron supports gay marriage and supports 420 legalization. He is pro freedom. If you’re not hurting anyone, you aren’t limited with your freedoms.

                If you want regulation of corrupt corporations, why don’t you want regulation against corrupt government?

                Maybe you should continue to educate yourself about the issues because once you actually understand whats going on, youll realize you agree with Ron more than you think.

                  Except Ron Paul doesn’t favor freedom for women, gays and others under oppressive Islamist policies overseas. He could care less about fighting Islamism. How can we have freedom, if Islamist imperialists are forcing our wives/girlfriends to wear ugly black burqas from head to toe. Hey Ron, fighting for freedom includes fighting against Islamism; the biggest threat we face today against preserving our personal freedoms.

                • Let them fight their own revolution for change. We had to! There are literally no Islamist/Muslims in the United States that have ever made your wife/girlfriend do anything, ever! Terrorism is not a country, or a people it is a tactic. Terrorists are criminals and nothing more. Just like crazy assholes that shoot up schools, or kill their wives. This is a law enforcement issue, not a military one. I would much rather have my tax paid soldiers here at home watching my back then overseas getting shot trying to police the world.

                • Chris Mallory

                  And how exactly is any “islamist imperialist” going to make any woman other than his wife or daughter wear a burqa?
                  All we have to do is have a sane immigration policy and Islam is no threat to us. First we need a mortorium on all immigration for 20 years. We need to remove all non citizens from our shores and tell all dual citizens they have a choice America or their other country, this includes dual Israeli/American citizens.

                Ron Paul absolutely sucks on foreign policy. His economic views are great. But his foreign policy is an utter disaster. He’s a 50%-er. He gets 100% of the equation right; and the other 50% (foreign policy) 100% wrong.

                The only legitimate function of government is national defense. We need to eliminate all other government programs.

          What is conservative about Newt?

          His support of a health care mandate?
          His support of federal government control over global warming?
          His support (and vote in creation of) the Department of Education?
          Supporting Fannie and Freddie?
          Support the Medicare Drug program?

          Where are the truly conservative ideas from Newt?
          Now if you said his record in office was clearly REPUBLICAN I would agree. He will support the same idea coming from a Republican that he will reject if it comes from a Democrat.

          I like Newt, always have but a conservative he is not. America needs a conservative at least as radical as Obama was Progressive.

          Obama achieved a 50+ year Progressive dream, in federal health care. Can our nominee achieve the 50+ year conservative dream of a federal government firmly behind the confines of the Constitution (which means ending everything from Social Security to Food Stamps)?

        • Anonymous

          Better check that record. He is for the Federal Reserve centrally planning the economy. How is that free market?

          He voted for Brady Bill.

          He was in favor of TARP.

          He has never proposed eliminating the income tax.

          He voted for the Dept. of Education.

          He called the GSE’s (Freddie/Fannie) excellent models in an interview with Freddie officers in April 2007.

          Go ask Joe Scarbrough to Tom Coburn about Newt.

          Newt issues fiery rhetoric about limited government, but in the end he always makes peace with the other statists.

          Newt and Romney hi-jack the language of free markets and liberty in the service of advancing big government.

          The Financial Times had it right today when they wrote, “Newt is a stupid person’s idea of what a smart person should sound like.”

            Ron Paul is another Neville Chamberlain with the same appeasement philosophy. Chamberlain thought appeasing the Nazis would keep a war from happening. The rest is history and Chamberlain gave the Nazis enough time and cooperation for them to build their war machine.
            How can Glenn Beck support Ron Paul when Glenn supports Israel? The Israelis have bent over backward with the Palestinians by returning land, giving monetary support, medical care, etc.. Yet, the Palestinians have said there is no peace until Israel and the Jews are gone! If Ron Paul were to become president, He would appease the terrorist like Chamberlain appeased the Nazis. We would be in a world war in no time.
            Glenn says he hates Ron Paul’s foreign policy, yet he would risk the whole world for opposing Newt Gingrich. In 2008 Beck also supported the bail-outs. He now says if you oppose Obama and support Newt Gingrich, you must be a racist! Beck is the one that is starting to sound progressive with that statement.

            • for one thing, saying israel is great to palestinians is absurd. totally silly…….ben guirrion said, “we stole their land, i wouldn’t trust negotiating with us. can you blame them.” go google it. you are mixed up…..now run along little moron drone. run-a-long…and youtube this…..NYPD POLICE TRANSMISSION MURAL VAN MOSSAD. get a hold of your self, you’re spewing insanity…..watch the youtube vid. my friend, a colonal in the military was said to have started a campaign over this. the first guy that tried disappeared.

Alliances should be mutually beneficial not one sided like our alliance [which we don’t even have a treaty for] with Israel. So tell me why my hard earned tax dollars should go to a nation that can support itself? Why do I have to pay? Or Bob? Or Bill? Or Fred? Or Joe? Should we pay them our money in foreign aid just because they exist? The Israeli’s can feed themselves, protect themselves, [finest military in the whole region] and wipe their own asses without the United States standing next to them with a roll of toilet paper! Ron Paul got this one exactly right. He is not appeasing anybody he just doesn’t fall for bullshit propaganda that a thinking man can easily see through.

Just the way I talk, nobody is trying to silence or sensor you. I apologize if it offended you. Now instead of whining that somebody told you to shut up “Boo Hoo” how bout you defend your ridiculous position’s Mr. Sensitivity! Also if the only reason you don’t support a candidate on his positions is because you don’t like supporters, you should not be giving anybody lectures on maturity!

[Did I get it right now?] If you feel insulted when somebody calls you sensitive then stop being so sensitive! Now lets try to start this over and have a real conversation. Above is my position on Israel can you provide ANY facts or even well thought out opinions on why I am wrong? Or do you want to keep trying to make the case that I am a hypocrite because I said the words “shut up” in a sentence and that somehow I have magical powers, and internet authority, to sensor you with these words, therefore, since I believe in free speech as a libertarian I am a hypocrite. If we are all done with that now, maybe you can go ahead and start producing some facts please.

          George, it’s his RECORD we object to. It is clearly NOT CONSERVATIVE.

        • his record is clearly criminal Ron Paul a far more conservative, moral and trustworthy candidate…..duh

        • “but his record in office is clearly conservative.”

          Yeah like cosponsoring 418 bills with Nancy Pelosi…

        • His record is far from clearly conservative and his moral record is zero. You apparently know nothing about Newt. Do some research.

          are you ignorant or just plain STUPID George?!

          Gingrich has NOT ONE conservative bone in his reptilian-like body! He is FOR healthcare mandates. He is FOR overseas spending. He is FOR big government!

        We cannot afford another four years of Obama. Obama loves big government too, hates capitalism, put in a healthcare bill that will destroy the healthcare system, and does not like this country that much. I don’t see how anyone can vote for him for anything unless they are a liberal, leftist, socialist, marxist.

        • Anonymous

          I agree. That means we can’t afford to hand him a second term with the election of Barack H. Gingrich or Barack H. Romney. There are fraternal triplets. They are all progressives. Republicans are getting taken for a ride…again.

          Ron Paul can win!!! I’ve seen poll after poll with him matched against Obama. He absolutely kills Obama in the independents.

          Obama is going down regardless of who the nominee is because price inflation is about to go ballistic. The M2 money supply figures are up 30% year over year. That’s a lot of monetary debasement. Double-digit price inflation is here by the summer. No one gets re-elected in that environment.

          What we’ve got to make sure of is that we don’t send another progressive to take his place. Gary Johnson or Ron Paul are both good choices.

          • The republican money is so scared right now…like this article… The Right Scoop?

            And why should any pro-defenser, Reaganite, anti-Islamist voter support Ron Paul? Third Party or in the GOP? What does Ron Paul have to offer those of us who see Islam as the greatest threat to our liberties today? Absolutely nothing! He doesn’t even acknowledge Islamo-Fascism exists. Hell, every week at some campaign event the guy flirts with 9/11 Trutherism; just last week suggesting Bush was “gleeful” over the attacks.

              Those with a connected cerebral cortex don’t see a religion as the greatest threat to our liberties. Probably because going broke and becoming a police state are of far greater consequence.

        The nation will not be the only thing destroyed by 2016. For every retiring supreme court justice, Obama will get to stack the court with radicals who will set policy in this country for centuries! Forget Christmas, it won’t be a federal holiday anymore. And homosexuals and illegals? They will rule the roost. As for Ron Paul, get serious! Newt is the lesser of the evils, and better than the candidate the Repubs put up last time (McCain) or the also rans the might have been the nominess (Palin, anyone?).

        • No way 8 years of Newt is better than 4 years of Obama + 8 years of a actual conservative who supports limited government. Newt is the consummate scum bag. Last thing we need is a republican controlled congress willing to support Newt’s new boondoggles simply because he has an R by his name. Congress will check Obama’s power until we get a real candidate in 2016. Anyone but Newt.

          Ah, the lesser of two evils.

      • If you really think Newt is for big gov’t, I strongly suggest that you review his record. He is one of the most powerful Conservative leaders the country has ever seen. He passed the Contract with America through vicious liberal opposition. He is the only person to have balanced the budget, also through vicious liberal opposition. Want further proof, look at there the money is now. Lobbyists are pouring money into Obama and Romney, but not a penny for Newt. If he is so in the pocket of big money, why is he being so viciously attacked now? Lots of name calling, very little of substance. The few attacks of substance have been knocked out of the park by Newt’s answers in the debates. I admit, taking money from Freddie/Fanny not great, but hey, he was in private practice at the time and who is he to say no to a million bucks for basically giving them advice. The system is completely corrupt, I don’t doubt that he would fix the system if given the chance.

          Newt loves public-private partnerships. He is a statist.

          He supported TARP.

        To Ed and your 189 supporters — Obama got elected 3 years ago and this is what conservatives have to choose from now, Gingrich (a disgusting, adulterous fraud and frequent liberal running on the OWS platform) and Romney (a liberal running as a conservative).

        I think your strategy has a prominent flaw, you nitwit.

    • The only way to get to the GOP to put up a conservative candidate is to credibly commit not to vote for centrists. Otherwise, as base voters they assume you will vote for them no matter what and have the incentive to put up someone only marginally more right wing than Obama. If the base voters vocally endorse the GOP candidate no matter what, every four years the GOP will get another middle of the road socialist.

    If Newt Gingrich becomes the choice there’s no doubt that there will be a second (even more ruinous) Obama term. Do you even realize that Newt Gingrich will just continue Obama’s policies with hardly a change and, in some instances, probably make them worse. Such as Obamacare (which is a hard policy to make worse than it already is) But ‘both sides of the fence’ player Gingrich will find a way.

        • tiamoaz58

          You must be losing your mind Aline Thompson. I’ve listened to Newt’s speeches for three years online, and anyone can go to You Tube, and listen to his speeches that he’s given, even before he decided to run, and if you think he wants to make gov. larger than you haven’t been paying attn. Even in the debates he said otherwise. He said he would do away with the EPA, and put in a MUCH smaller institution that would allow the states to stop being so heavily regulated, and instead, help them to be freed up! He’s for our own energy in every way. He would do away with Freddie & Fannie. He even states that he would do away with the entire 9th circuit court! He said Jefferson did away with whole courts who became rogue. He said you can’t fix them…and you have to do what Jefferson did…just abolish them. He DOES want the Fed audited. Where do you get this stuff? Have you even paid one bit of attention? He wants to take down the unions from FORCING people to belong to them! He wants to privatize PART of SS for those under 55 the way they have in Galveston, TX, and Chile…which is EXACTLY what Herman Cain wanted…and he cited the same thing Newt did, and quoted Newt many times! He’s not for No Child Left Behind, but abolishing the Dept. of Education, and putting schools back in the STATES HANDS. He’s ALL FOR THE 10TH AMENDMENT. When they asked Romney what was different between him & Newt the other night on the debate he could only think of two things…and one of them was mining rocks on the moon (what’s so odd about that? Kennedy said he wanted to send a man TO the moon, and they laughed at him too! Newt wants kids to get interested in NASA again…not close it down like Obama has!) And then Romney said that he didn’t want to take away child labor laws. Newt went on to explain that he didn’t want to take them away… and the Romney was misstating his position. He wants kids to be able to learn to work in their schools like many of us did in our younger years. What’s happened to Americans expecting kids to deliver papers? Work in school cafeterias? I did… many did! We learned how to make money and save it. He’s not talking about YOUNG children, but teens. Maybe that’s what’s wrong with Occupy…..they think they don’t have to WORK for anything, and everything is just given to them! And they can’t play soccer anymore or gym, or they might get a boo-boo! They have money for hamburger, but watch 90210 and want steak! NEWT is NOT a progressive, and anyone who says so hasn’t watched him for about ten years now. He was scored the other day on the regular media as a 93% conservative in the congress! Obama was the lowest…as were many other RINOS! You have your FACTS wrong. Why post if you don’t pay attention?

              • “Neocon” has been a go-to sobriquet for Paulistinians since the last presidential election. It’s the name they chose to demean conservatives of bad odor to them in their bot-like march for their quirky icon. Short for neoconservative, the word actually means what it says, New Conservatives, thus the name-calling is non-sequitur from the start. When snarky Paulbrats call me “neocon,” I remind them that actually, I am a paleocon, and that, in fact, THEY are the neocons. Cons, indeed.

                • Anonymous

                  Paleo-cons are almost extinct. Its such a backwards and unproductive view of the world that got replaced by the ability to read books and become educated.

                  The literal meaning of “neo-con” is not entirely “new conservative.” It more closely means a new way of looking at old ideas. If you wanted to look at the root of each part of the word, the literal meanings would be redundant, and in turn just mean gibberish.

                  The movement of neo-conserativism has its foundation in the beliefs in using a powerful federal government, especially by financial and military means, as a conduit for enforcing populist conservative ideas.

                  Of course what happens when ideologues that believe in using the military and the economy to affect change are then placed in charge of both the economy AND the military is what we’ve seen since 2001, with multiple financially unsustainable wars with no real goal in mind.

                  Given where this country is now, financially, militarily and economically … neo-con isn’t much of a badge of honor, its a symbol of what helped ripped this nation apart.

                  In either case, I wouldn’t brag to many people that you’re either a paleo-con or a neo-con. It’s like saying you either don’t think women should have the right to vote, or you think that war is good for the economy. In either case, you’re children will laugh at you as a nostalgic old fool.

                  In my book, on the federal level, liberals are about as retarded as conservatives. Keep that on a state level, or better yet, the most local government possible.

                  Personally, I believe in a rock solid contract; and the one I believe the most in is, “The Constitution of the United States.”

                  It’s a brilliantly written piece. Give it a read. You won’t find anything in there about liberals or conservatives.

                  I believe in the marketplace of ideas, and I don’t want your warped version of ideology or philosophy inflicted on me anymore than I care to inflict mine onto others. I’d rather have 50 different states with 50 different ways of creating policy instead of the jack-holes in California telling people in New Hampshire they can’t eat trans-fats or smoke cigarettes in their own houses. Likewise, I don’t need the Bible-thumpers in po-dunk Arkansas telling Illinoisans that they’ll burn in Hell for drinking fermented grape juice and therefore go back to prohibition.

                  I don’t need a rockhead conservative or liberal telling me how to live my life. I’ve served in the military, earned my way through to a masters degree, pay my taxes and make a solid living. I’ll challenge most loud-mouth political fanatics to do the same.

                  Yes, you’re right. I shouldn’t have accused you of being a liberal, because liberals claim to have a social conscience. With you “libertarians”, it’s all about you, and no one else. I also served in the military (U.S.M.C… you?), earned a masters degree, pay my taxes, and also make a very good living. Whoop-de-do. Do I think that makes me special? But with you “libertarians”, EVERYTHING about you is “special”. Your ideas, your so-called “intellect”. You (collectively) like to delude yourselves into thinking that you’re so superior to the rest of us. But, in fact, you’re so “broadminded” as to actually being quite “mean” and selfish. Your “thinking” will not prevail in this presidential election anymore than it has in others. It would be nice if you cared more about our country and less about your own personal so-called “freedoms”.

                  82nd Airborne, infantry; then later a combat medic in the Reserves.

                  And compared to most of the lunatic crap I read on here, yeah, its definitely special and I hold my work in high esteem. You should take a little bit more pride in yourself.

                  You sound like Perry – “if you say that we should not educate children who have come into our state for no other reason than they’ve been brought there by no fault of their own, I don’t think you have a heart. ”

                  Cry me a river.

                  If you want to help out, donate to a church or a charity, but don’t purposely create legislation and policy that hamstrings one group of successful people in favor of another that isn’t even here legally. That frame of mind leads to dangerous paths, including policies like affirmative action. In the end, it creates more oppression and poverty then it solves.

                  On top of that, you might want to go look in a mirror. The things you’re writing, about being mean and selfish and caring more about my country than my own personal freedoms – that’s utilitarianism, the foundations of liberalism. And, its the exact premise that Bush used to push forward The Patriot Act, create “Homeland Security” and the TSA that strip-searches grandmas. Its also the excuse given throughout every single moment of history when a dictator wanted more power.

                  See, you might not realize this but there are two school of thoughts in our political system that pretty much divide equally down liberal and conservative lines.

                  Liberals believe in creating policy that says whats good for the whole is good for the individual.

                  Conservatives believe in creating policy that says whats good for the individual is good for the whole.

                  Our Bill of Rights, whether you like it or not, was written on the principles of protecting the individual rights, and that’s where being a libertarian steps in. It prevents the religious zealots from forcing us to subscribe to their religious beliefs, and it prevents the environmental whackos from having us all convert to expensive solar energy.

                  So I don’t care one bit about whether you want to be a liberal or conservative in your home state, but you have absolutely no right whatsoever to use the federal government to push me into a corner.

                  Now my point in the earlier post was that I’m not hurting anyone, and in fact I think I’m a pretty darn good contributor to our society. I placed the good of the country over myself at the highest stakes possible by putting my ass on the line multiple times.

                  The “social consciousness” that you advocate are actually just your set of bias and they place more importance of your own ideologies over my own, so you can go stuff it. That’s the sort of tripe that is ruining our country because it lets lemmings like you elect corrupt politicians because he promises you everything under the sun and a free pass straight to Heaven, all you gotta do is vote for him.

                  Once he’s in office, its the same old thing all over again. But worse, because the one thing a narcissistic morally bankrupt with access to the largest military in the world needs is justification for any perceived provocation.

                  On the other hand, for the first time in many of our lifetimes there is a candidate running for office who is promising not more, but in fact less.

                  Wait, what?

                  Right. He’s saying that these excessive entitlements, wars our friends and families are dying in, and the financial system thats in place will no longer be tolerated. We must return to a federal system that provides a minimum of framework and intervention in our lives. And in doing so – by protecting the rights of the individual – we will be capable of spurning innovation and entrepreneurship.

                  Yeah, in second though… that’s just a terrible idea. I mean, who would want to be free?

                  What’s Newt promising? Another way to spend money? The creation of yet another bureaucratic regime? In other words… more and more federal government? More and more spending? More and more war?

                  Awesome. Seriously. Talk about a guy who is willing to put his country above himself.

                  Yeah, the 82nd used to be a good outfit. Congratulations.

                  So, now you’re calling ME a liberal. Even a “bleeding heart” one, at that. All I can do is laugh.

                  I’ve debated both “liberals” and “conservatives” online, but whenever I’ve tried to discuss politics with a “libertarian”, I soon wind up feeling like I’ve fallen down a metaphoric “rabbit hole” in an “Alice In Wonderland” world of libertarian sophistry.

                  So, again I’ll remind you that Ron Paul will NOT win the nomination (with good reason) and leave it to you rather than continue to waste my time trying to have a sensible dialogue with a rabid libertarian.

                  Have a good day.

                  I’m only repeating what you said for yourself.

                  Yeah, I think that the vast majority of “conservatives” have no qualms with increasing the size of government and intrusion into our lives so long as it fits within their preconceived ideologies. All the while completely disregarding the part about increasing_the_size_of_government_and_intrusion_into_our_lives.

                  So if you’re having problems having a conversation with libertarians, it might be because of your obvious problem with rationalizing inconsistencies within how you view your own political ideology.

                  Can’t have it both ways Bubba, pick a side.

                  Anyhow, I used to a tee-totaling conservative back in the day. I couldn’t get enough of Oliver North, G. Gordon Liddy, Rush Limbaugh … and man, I thought Newt Gingrich was just the guy I wanted to be president one day when he made the “Contract with America.”

                  Finally, someone would return moral virtues the executive branch and we could toss out the Clinton opportunists.

                  Fast forward 17 years and the only that’s managed to happen is exchanging one worthless politician for another. And here we are, setting the stage for it happen again.

                  And Newt, he road the wave of that initial popularity and became one of the nastiest narcissists in government. He betrayed the trust I had in him, as did many of the established republicans and conservatives, and it became quite apparent to me that the only way to fix our federal government is to prevent anymore hostile takeovers.

                  And that’s where you and I stand apart.

                  Do you see any shred of inconsistency in stating the Ron Paul doesn’t stand a chance so don’t vote for him, thereby placing your vote with someone that only stands a chance because Ron Paul doesn’t?

                  I’m not budging on that issue. I’m voting with my moral convictions, not for the Republican or Democrat party, not for liberals or conservatives, but the most honest man to run for president in who knows how long. The only one who has a 30+ year record to back up what he says so I know he isn’t just changing his tune for whatever the latest populist movement is.

                  I hope your conscious is clear.

                  “The larger the mob, the harder the test. In small areas, before small electorates, a first-rate man occasionally fights his way through, carrying even the mob with him by force of his personality. But when the field is nationwide, and the fight must be waged chiefly at second and third hand, and the force of personality cannot so readily make itself felt, then all the odds are on the man who is, intrinsically, the most devious and mediocre—the man who can most easily adeptly disperse the notion that his mind is a virtual vacuum. The Presidency tends, year by year, to go to such men. As democracy is perfected, the office represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. We move toward a lofty ideal. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.”

                  This is not true. He never supported Cap and Trade and testified against it the same day that Al Gore testified for it. (Lord Monckton was not allowed to testify and Newt testified in his place. If you don’t know who Lord Monckton is, check out his videos against global warming on You Tube). Newt supports clean air but he believes the science for climate change is not settled and more research is needed, but he has clearly stated he would not support any policy that would adversely effect our economy.

                  Don’t be swayed by 30 second sound bites, headlines, and the criticisms of Democrats and Republicans that want to sway you. DO THE RESEARCH and get the full story before you decide who you want to vote for.

                  If Newt Gingrich is the Republican nominee then I will vote for him. In fact, anybody on the Republican side would be a million times better then having O’Bamma win a second term.

                  Everything O’Bamma does is to help him win a second term even if it hurts the American People. His phony Jobs bill was worthless and he knows it. He put it out there knowing that it would not pass and then he could use it in his campaign against the Republicans. He is not approving the oil pipeline from Canada so he will not make his loony environmentalist friends mad at him. The pipeline would bring millions of gallons of oil into this country which would bring the price of oil down for all of us. It would also create thousands of new jobs for unemployed Americans. America will be doomed if we do not elect a Republican President and take over the Senate and Congress this time.

                  It would also make us much less dependent on purchasing oil from countries in the middle east and elsewhere who hate us and want to do us harm if they could.

              I think people have already forgotten that Ron Paul is the godfather of the Tea Party.

              Somehow it turned from a politically-agnostic, grassroots movement challenging the expansion and intrusion of big government into our lives, into some neo-con/religious-zealot conservative platform policy machine.

              In other words, it got usurped by every scumbag opportunist politician. Now the #occupy movement has more credibility DESPITE the alliance with Cindy Sheehans and Acorn nut jobs.

              Stop voting for or against “the party” when it clearly hasn’t had your vote in mind for the past 55+ years and start questioning what you value.

                Wrong. Ron Paul is not the godfather of the Tea Party. If anyone founded the Tea Party it was Eric Odom, and the Chicago-area Libertarian Party who held the very first protest. (There was a New York group that held a dump soda in the river protest too, that could be called the founders of the movement.)

                  Are you smoking crack?!?!

                  Ron Paul held the first Tea Party rally in 2007 and it became the foundation of his platform in his 2008 bid for the presidency. His theme of reducing the size of government, repealing the overly broad intrusion into our lives, in addition to the dire need for financial reform became the pivotal issues of his campaign.

                  Google search for, “Ron Paul’s tea party for dollars,” published on December 16, 2007 in the Boston Globe. It is the first recorded publication of the movement… Eric Odom is not in attendance.

                  What you’re referring to occurred in 2009 as a response to an utterly unrelated and separate event. Eric Odom – A NEW MEDIA STRATEGIST – adopted “Tea Party” in response to his little shindig with the Chicago Mercantile Exchange.

                  Every single principle on which the Tea Party grew upon were 100 percent libertarian in nature. As the movement gained traction, conservatives concerned with runaway spending of the government, latched on to many of the principles, especially because they were disenfranchised with their elected representatives. In other words, the ideas became, “good bedfellows.”

                  Unfortunately, the Tea Party movement also attracted a lot of conservatives with ideological baggage in addition to opportunistic politicians looking to make a name for themselves. After hijacking the entire movement and turning it into the pile of crap it exists as today, I would agree that the Tea Party currently looks nothing like what the Tea Party of 2007, 2008 or early 2009 looked like.

                  Nonetheless, Ron Paul remains the “intellectual godfather” of the movement. This isn’t really up for debate. Google away my friend; you haven’t a leg to stand on.

                  First of all, your facts are dead wrong. If you don’t believe me, go look it up. Its cited all over the web by journalists, academics and political pundits. The specific event that started it all was in Boston, Dec. 16, 2007. Verbatim, read, “Ron Paul is the intellectual godfather of the Tea Party movement.”

                  Secondly, republican and democrat is a form of representation, and liberal and conservative is a form of policy making. Paul can be a libertarian and a republican – which he is. There are also liberal republicans and conservative democrats.

                  It never ceases to amaze me that we have citizens in this country that can barely understand recent history or how our government functions.

                  Class dismissed.

                • As far as history goes, Ron Paul ran for president as a Libertarian. It is actually a party and joined the Republican party only because he knows he will get no attention as a Libertarian, so it is you who do not know history. And dude, I don’t need to read anything to know who started the Tea Party movement. I am an investor who watches CNBC every day. I saw Rick Santelli and heard his words. Shortly thereafter Tea Parties sprang up all around the country. This was after Obama, who was President at the time, not in 2007, announced his first mortgage bailout to people who could not afford the houses they bought. Do not think to lecture me about how our government works and history, my friend. Your arrogance is not backed up by your facts.

              Ron Paul has been running for president since 1988. He’s 76 years old. That’s older than Reagan was when he won his second term. The American people will not elect Ron Paul.

                He hasn’t run on abolishing the Fed, though that is probably preferrable to him. He wants transparency which would result in the demise of the Fed by the people.

                Not running on the gold standard. Rather, he is championing competition in currency. The FRN would die a slow death.

                Ron Paul will win Iowa and will be on his way to the nomination.

                Get over it.

            THANK YOU!!! I am so glad there is somebody out there who is paying attention and not judging Newt on things that happened fifteen years ago! He has come a long way and has inspired and wonderful ideas of where he wants to take America.

            I think he is the Winston Churchill of our day – the right man at the right time in history. Not perfect, not even trusted by many (as with Churchill)… But these are not normal times. America is on the brink of destruction and if Obama gets a second term without the constraints of a future election, we will not recognize our country when he is finished with us. Churchill had changed parties, was considered to be erratic and unpredictable, and was not even well-liked, but when Britain was facing Hitler, they knew he was the right man for the job.

            Newt is a brilliant man and consummate politician who knows how to make the right things happen in Washington DC. He understands history and he will show Obama up for the “know nothing” that he is. Newt is uniquely qualified to teach Americans about conservatism, which is vital because too many Americans have forgotten what America is all about, or believe the leftist/liberal lies. Fixing our economy is not enough – we need new ideas and radical changes to restore our national character and return to our Constitutional Republic – and only Newt will do that.

            Glad you are out there and speaking up. Your voice is important!!!

            Newt is our Barack!

        • The President has no control of monetary policy and your claims that big government will not be arrested has no basis in fact whatsoever. The push for reform that led Bill Clinton to proclaim the era of big government over was led by Newt. As a back bencher in the Congress he was to the right of Ronald Reagan. I like Beck and listen to him every day, but he is not God and is not infallible. He is just plane wrong on Newt. Beck is stuck on his own anti-progressive template, pure and simple. He would have accused Reagan of being a progressive. Has he asked Bachmann if she’s going to end Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid? Government does not get any more progressive than that. I’ll bet you she would say no. Does that make her progressive? Is he progressive for supporting her? He goes too far with this.

            “The President has no control of monetary policy and your claims that big government will not be arrested has no basis in fact whatsoever.”

            Right, the executive branch does not have control over the federal reserve except when appointing individuals to the Board of Governors, but to say the president is powerless is laughable.

            The executive branch is enormously powerful, and with it comes intense political and corporate persuasion. The president doesn’t NEED to control the federal reserve, he has the sole discretion to otherwise command and distribute the largest aspects of government, and thereby redistribute assets that in effect influence economic policy.

            • Yes, like I said, the President does not have control of monetary policy. What you describe is fiscal policy.

              • Anonymous

                Well!

                Then I stand corrected.

                Grumble.

                Howeverrrrrrrrrrrrrr … this isn’t a cut and dry matter.

                The powers of the presidency to intervene in the Fed are prevented. My point is that the national agenda is largely set through influence of the executive branch, and while no – the president cannot directly intervene in the Fed – he can effectively whip his party, if it has a majority, to intervene through legislation.

                Ergo, if A = B and B = C then A = C.

                So while you are *technically* correct, there is more than one way to skin a cat.

                • What a lovely non sequitur…my point is there are a whole lot of economic prognosticators out there who don’t really understand economics or our political structure and you’re pretty high on the list with your comments.

                • Anonymous

                  Likewise Robert, you’ve exposed yourself pretty well for the fool you are.

                  Let me ask you this, who appoints the chairman?

                  If you answered with “the president of the United States,” you win one gold star.

                  Next, who pushed for passage of The Banking Act of 1935?

                  If you answered with, “the president of the United States,” you win another gold star.

                  Finally, when a political party controls both the legislative and the executive branch, who has indirect control over the fed? If you answered, “the president of the United States,” you won a third gold star and a free pizza party!!!

                  Ergo: If A (the president) = B (congress), and if B (congress) = C (monetary restraint and oversight of the Fed), then A (the president) = C (monetary restraint and oversight of the Fed).

                  I’ll just close with a quote from Richard Timberlake, retired professor of economics at the University of Georgia in an encyclopedia entry titled, “The Federal Reserve,”

                  “Can The Fed, as an ‘independent’ central bank maintain price stability contrary to the wishes of an executive branch that seeks to use its fiscal powers to manage the federal government’s burgeoning long-term debt?”

                  Thanks for playing Robert.

                • Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we lived in a world without politics and government? This is basically what you argue, which I would argue makes you more of an anarchist than a libertarian. Perhaps you should join the OWS people. I can be conservative without wanting to close down the Fed. The idea that it makes me a fool is quite silly…I think you would feel much better about yourself if you had a sense of humor.

        The parties may not be exactly the same, but they agree on a lot.

        They both like foreign wars, they both like government meddling in healthcare, they like bailouts, they like our monetary system and the Federal Reserve, they like debt… I can go on, but hopefully you get the point.

        • tiamoaz58

          Newt does not like gov’t meddling in healthcare & explained that years ago ALL the CONSERVATIVES were looking for a way to make those who refused to get healthcare get something so that the rest of the people didn’t have to pay for them. Pay attention! Then he said when Hillarycare came around, and they saw the MANDATE she tried to put in, they moved away from a mandate, and realized that it wasn’t the way to go. They were all trying to work out a problem with all the illegals coming in as well, and using up all the ER and hospital monies. No one had ever dealt with it before. Romney did the same in order to make it fair for those who had healthcare not to have to pay out so much for those who not couldn’t get it, but WOULDN’T! What’s with you people? People can’t WORK OUT PROBLEMS anymore, and if a person has a LOGICAL change of mind it’s ALWAYS called flip-flopping? Can’t people change and grow? Glenn Beck said HE did! But it’s not okay for others to? Hypocrites!

          • You’re insane. Newt supports the mandate. He supported expanding medicare. He called Paul Ryan’s plan “right wing social engineering”. He’s big government through and through.

            • Anonymous

              Newt called Paul Ryan’s plan right wing engineering because he believes is it just as wrong for conservatives to force policies on the American people as it was for Obama to do it. He likes aspects of Ryan’s plan but said it must be presented in a way that the American people have as many personal choices as possible. Newt has tremendous respect for the citizenry and that has been missing from government for a very long time!

                No disrespect intended but several of the Gingrich supporters posting here remind me of the Obama supporters in the last election. Specifically, they refuse to admit the man has failings, those they do acknowledge they excuse, and they obviously believe every word the man utters sans researching his past record, including the negative remarks made about him by lifelong, well-respected Conservatives who worked with Gingrich.

                We are all desperately seeking someone who will defeat Obama. In our desperation we must not replace Obama the “D” with an “R” clone – Gingrich.

                • Sorry, but every candidate has failings. I think it is more accurate to say that some Beck supporters – not me though I like Beck – believe Beck has no failings. Everyone has failings and there is no perfect candidate. That is no reason to vote for Ron Paul…who also is not a perfect candidate. If I have to choose between imperfection, I’ll take Newt, the man who stopped Hillarycare, led us to welfare reform, led on Reagan tax cuts and tax reform and toppled the Democrats 40 year control of Congress.

              • Sure respect for the citizenry? Supporting a bill that could give the death penalty or 2 ounces of marijuana? Are you kidding, he is a big government, nanny state scumbag FRAUD.

            What is wrong with us? well we have been following republican politics for 30+ years and we have finally learned the signs that someone is lying and actually going to incease the size and power of government. Bush lied and raised taxes, Bush 2 lied and did not engage in a humble foreign policy…he also expanded all the other parts of the government…it became clear that republicans who write big government articles for the CFR are just lying when they say they are for small government. Gingrich has a long history of supporting growing government power and expenditures. If you don’t know about then you need to read and research in other places besides the Gingrich campaign site.

            • And Ron Paul has a long history of stuffing bills with the pork he knows will pass with his no vote as well as supporting legalization of drugs and advocating a foreign policy that will invite terrorism in our streets.

                So, instead of the taxpayers having the taxes sent back to their district they should leave it in the hands of the executive branch to be wasted? That is easily the weakest argument on this page, and shows a complete ignorance of how the system works.

          The party elite also agree that taxing carbon dioxide would be good for big government and bad for the people. That is why Pelosi and Gingrich supprot carbon tax and trade.

        Good luck nailing Gingrich down to any concrete stance. Unless you’re saying that Gingrich is against “Obamacare” for say only a given few months.

        He supports (or has recently supported) an individual mandate.

        He’s called for the death penalty against marijuana users (a civil rights violation if I’ve ever heard one)

        If you honestly see any substantive difference between him and the rest of the morally an intellectually bankrupt pols in both parties, I suggest you broaden your political horizons a little.

            While I do not agree with Newt on many topics, facts are facts. He did NOT advocate death penalty for users, but for convicted drug smugglers who import a commercial amount of drugs. Here is a source: http://2012.republican-candidates.org/Gingrich/Marijuana.php
            While they should be punished, I think the death penalty might be a little too much.

              For eight years I worked in a private psych hospital specializing in substance abuse. If you witnessed the death and destruction, turmoil and frustration drug-addicted patients and their families endure you would demand the death penalty for drugs dealers.

              82% of drugs come across the Mexican border – a border past and current administrations refuse seal and so it goes on. Romney’s position on illegal immigration and the borders is the primary reason I support his candidacy.

        Newt supported the individual mandate before it was not cool for Republicans to not support it.

        • The “individual mandate” is not the problem with Obamacare — it is the fact that Obamacare is a gov’t run program that is the problem. Newt has never been in favor of a gov’t takeover of health care, he has been a staunch opponent of it. In the context of a private solution, an individual mandate could actually be helpful, and it could be done in a Constitutional manner (via tax incentives rather than just a mandate). Newt’s main problem is that he is honestly working on real solutions, and this sometimes does not translate well into sound bites. If you really want to fix health care, Newt is the man.

          • Individual mandates are a CONSTITUTIONAL problem and an individual LIBERTY problem. I can tell you’re a GOP hack who’ll vote for any one that wears the label. I despise big government Republicans as much as big government Democrats.

      • Marc Matthews; did you not hear Newts own words on Glenn Beck last week? He might not support the immediate form of obamacare but hes made no attempts at hiding his own healthcare agenda that includes big government. Not to mention what moral compass will he run this country by since hes clearly shown no problems w having affairs and leaving his wife while shes at least very ill if not terminal. Can you imagine him at a conference with the middle east after his palestinian invention comment? Ron Paul might not have the nomination but as an individual im very impressed with his ethics. And I feel like thats what Glenns getting at. Its not a mans policies its what are his ethics? I could tell you anything you want to hear but my life’s actions show what I really am. The founding Fathers were not perfect but they had integrity and their policies came from their code of ethics. I think all glenn is saying is vote according to your ethics and he would rather vote a losing vote but vote w conviction than hold your hands over your eyes and vote for a bullshit nominee just because he’s a Republican

        • Ron Paul would fail to effectively defend the country.

He doesn’t articulate as well as he should, but he’s not a smooth B.S.er like the majority of the other candidates. He doesn’t want to give aid to other countries as we do now, he doesn’t support the U.N. he doesn’t want to meddle in other countries buisness, but he will stand up to defend our country from any who would cause harm, but will not be suckered into wordly squabbles to take action against those that spew oratory threats.

          You are really not paying attention if you believe the story about Newt’s first marriage. His daughter by that marriage was so fed up with the lies she recently wrote and article to set the record straight. Her MOTHER asked for the divorce before she went into the hospital and she was never terminal and is still very much alive. Be careful what you believe if you care about the truth.

          As for the Palestinians being an “invented people”… that is true. ALL residents of the land the British labeled “Palestine” were considered Palestinians until Israel became a state in 1948. When the state of Israel was created many residents of the land began to identify themselves as Israelis (this includes Jews, Christians, and Muslims.) There never was a distinct Arab Palestinian people until Arafat felt it was politically expedient to promote it. Of course, those who are anti-Semites, and those who oppose Israel will never admit to this fact – but Newt is telling the truth about history without regard to the political correctness of our culture. We need a president who is not afraid to speak the TRUTH! You can be sure, if it was not for Arab oil, we would not be pandering to the Arabs. Newt has a plan to become energy independent using our own resources so he is not interested in pandering.

          Obama invests in drilling for oil in Brazil and tells them we will be their best customer…. and refuses to approve the Canadian pipeline that would create hundreds of thousands of good-paying jobs for Americans and lessen our dependence on foreign oil…. yet he insists he will not rest (except for 80 rounds of golf) until Americans have jobs? What a liar!!! He has done nothing to create jobs in this country unless it is for his campaign bundlers and union folks who pay dues that end up in Democrat campaign coffers.

          Wake up people!!! A president who speaks the truth without concern for political correctness would be refreshing! That’s the kind of CHANGE I can believe in!

          • It’s his bomb-throwing rhetoric that has earned him the nickname “Hand Grenade”. Gingrich is right that many children don’t have a work ethic, but the way he put it out there? C’mon. He sounds like some factory owner from a Dickens novel. Besides, it’s not the government’s role to raise children or instill values.

            His bomb-throwing bombast is great for when he’s running in a safe district as leader of the opposition or writing a sensational book. It is an utter failure when he is in a leadership position. And it will keep him out of office in a nationwide race.

              Perhaps you should read your Bible. The Palestinians are never mentioned in the Bible because they did not exist. Perhaps you are thinking of the Philistines? They are not the same people.

                Joel 3:1-4 For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem, I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land. And they have cast lots for my people; and have given a boy for an harlot, and sold a girl for wine, that they might drink. Yea, and what have ye to do with me, O Tyre, and Zidon, and all the coasts of Palestine? will ye render me a recompense? and if ye recompense me, swiftly and speedily will I return your recompense upon your own head;

                Now how can you have the coasts of Palestine but no Palestinians? Does that mean that they are a legitimate people of a country? NO. They were Arabs, and were never a nation. But they were Palistinans by region. Thats what I was referring to. But to say they were an invented people is grossly out of context. They did exsist, but were not nor ever were a recongizable nation, but were reffered to as Palastinians.

                  It all depends on what version you read… I have never read Palestine in this verse… but Philistia. There was no Palestine until the Roman Emperor Hadrian placed that name on the entire nation of Israel in 135 A.D. so you would be hard-pressed to have any valid reference to Palestine in the Old Testament.

                  Joel 3
                  The Nations Judged
                  1 [a]“In those days and at that time,
                  when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem,
                  2 I will gather all nations
                  and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat.[b]
                  There I will put them on trial
                  for what they did to my inheritance, my people Israel,
                  because they scattered my people among the nations
                  and divided up my land.
                  3 They cast lots for my people
                  and traded boys for prostitutes;
                  they sold girls for wine to drink.

                  4 “Now what have you against me, Tyre and Sidon and all you regions of Philistia? Are you repaying me for something I have done? If you are paying me back, I will swiftly and speedily return on your own heads what you have done.

        If you truly believe there is a difference in the Parties I would ask that you explain why it is that every election the candidates pledge to correct the errors of the current/past administration(s) yet every term ends the same way – the new man in the White House just picked up the baton from the last resident and continued down the same path.

        There may be difference in policy issues and the time frame to accomplish their goals; however, there is no difference in their common agenda or ultimate goal.

        Romney saying he doesn’t support mandated h/c when he knows that 66% of the populace doesn’t is one thing–Mandating it for 6.5 MILLION PEOPLE is another. You can squabble about state vs. federal, but it still PROVES that he has NO regard for personal liberties, and NO concept of limits upon governments. Period.
        During the first rounds of debates, Mitt Perry answered every issue with: Government should fix this, Government should do that, Government WILL start doing so-and-so. Idiots cannot understand the constitution. The faithless cannot comply with it, or their sworn oaths.
        Newt is a little trickier. He knew to SOUND like a constitutionalist, so, he answered gingerly–Still, when forced to put a fork into it, his ideas are Big Big government. Newt is smart, but he is venomous snake.

        Only Ron Paul will stop the growth of the police state. TSA is now on the highways. The congress, at Obama’s insistence (according to Carl Levin) passed legislation allowing a white house star chamber to put any American in a dungeon, until the end of hostilities, with no formal charges or legal representation, and with no review outside of the executive branch.

        When people question Newt about the erosion of basic liberties as a result of the admittedly endless ‘war on terror’, his response is usually, ‘Do you want to lose an American city?’ So the situation is clear, for him: security demands we sacrifice our rights. He’s even laughingly suggested that the government allow attacks to happen from time to time, just to remind people how dependent they are on their true god, government, for security. Obama is worse, the rest are basically the same. Paul/Johnson 2012.

        • Ron Paul has some good ideas when it comes to domestic policy, but what good is that if his foreign and military policy cause the country to be taken over by a foreign aggressor?

          • And which foreign aggressor has the ability to invade us? If we would stop invading countries that are not a threat to THIS country, or putting embargoes on country’s that we don’t like, mind our own business and quit trying to run the world, spreading “democracy at gunpoint, we wouldn’t have to be so concerned about a 1 in a million chance that somebody would attack us.

            Come now, Ron Paul is not going to allow our country to be taken over by foreign aggressors. Just because he is not into bullying other countries around, doesn’t mean that. He wants to leave others alone and be left alone. If they physically agressed the U.S. he would act, and through congress, not as it has been illegally done for the past 40 years or better. Only congress has the power to declare war, not the president, according to our constitution. Domestically? are you kidding? He wants our liberties back. You will see government shirnk in size drastically, many depts. done away with, TSA being one of them, FEMA another, dept. of education, along with tons of regulatory issues. Research his voting record, and look at his agenda. He wants liberty, he is a constitutionalist. Don’t be duped by media and the elite.

Do you really not see who’s robbing us. good grief.

        • I like Ron Paul, and I agree we have to keep a close watch on our liberties. I have noted how many have fallen under Obama. But I don’t think isolationism is the answer. We must cut the military and limit our overseas involvement, I think Newt would do that, but I think Ron Paul goes a little too far. History shows what happens when the US goes into an isolationist shell, and it is not pretty.

          • There is a big difference between isolationist and non-interventionist.

          • What makes you think Newt would cut any overseas involvement. He has been the most interventionist of all the candidates. He has at least 3 more conflicts he would like us to get into. He has NEVER said he would bring anyone home from anywhere, including Germany.

            Newt will never beat Obama because we Independents will not vote for a con man, huckster, charlatan, if he were a car salesman we would be calling him low life scum due to his past baggage. Ron Paul has some very good ideas, revisiting our failed free trade policies and renegotiating them into fair trade agreements. Our unemployment problem will never end until we bring back some of the industry that has left.I like his idea of closing all foreign military bases and bringing home all troops. If other countries want to pay for their security then they can hire American merc’s, we have trained plenty. Our men in uniform should no longer be the worlds policemen and lackeys for corporate. Ron Paul can never get the nomination in the Republican party, the hierarchy of the GOP will never let that happen. He must pull out and run on the Libertarian ticket because they are on the ballot in every state. He would pull those votes, Dem’s who are unhappy with Obama, most Independents, all his own Republican supporters and many Republicans who know Newt is a loser and all around bad guy. I would start donating money if he run on third party ticket, but it needs to become a real populist movement calling for one 6yr terms for all politicians thereby ending seniority and the corporate control of our representatives through K Street lobbyist.The representatives would then go to Washington vote the peoples will not special corporate interest. The time is right for a third party, I know hard core Republicans won’t like this but who gives a dam. They can’t get anything done because they have become obstructionist and their main game is to do nothing to make Obama look bad for 2012, dam the economy and the unemployed(it is a means to an end) but it is going to backfire.Unless Ron Paul runs a third party I and many others will vote Obama,sorry Newt just doesn’t get it. Standby and watch the biggest defeat in a long time with Newt and the GOP will lose the House.

        People who are still considering supporting anyone aside from RP are still asleep regarding the most important issue of the day. Even if they understand the depths of our financial straits, they don’t understand that it is debt based money, fiat money, that has created the situation. Every other candidate either doesn’t get it, or gets it and has other ends in mind. If the monetary system has always seemed confusing to you, I urge you to read this and pass it on to your friends and family. It impacts them every day of their lives.

        I think a good place to start is asking: Did your great-grandparents have to play the stock market to stay ahead of inflation? If they played the markets, it’s because they chose to do so, not because they had to. From 1796-1913, the purchasing power of a US dollar fluctuated between 93 cents and $2. So people could literally put their money under the mattress, and when they went to spend it later it would have all of its original purchasing power, or more. Fiat money is money with no intrinsic value, piece of paper backed only by faith and force. Not minted into coin or backed by gold or silver, but by dictate: “Let this be money.” Using it means everyone is captive to the inflation that always accompanies it. Everyone has to go all in, and the bankers end up picking up the chips and pocketing them each time the economy crashes due to all of their ‘hot’ money being mis-allocated into giant asset bubbles (savings and loan institutions, internet IPOs, then the housing bubble – each bigger and more damaging than the last because credit and money have expanded so much).

        The endless cycle of booms and busts won’t end so long as we use debt based money, the issuance of which is controlled by the bankers. One of the smartest people who have ever lived was named Mayer Rothschild. He was the world’s richest man, and his family’s fortune today arguably dwarfs total global GDP (look it up). He famously said that so long as he controlled the issuance of a nation’s money, he cared little who made its laws. Was the world’s wealthiest banker just talking garbage, or did he mean it? History suggest he meant it.

        It is the unlimited issuance of debt based money by central banks that makes both the welfare and warfare state possible. From the invasion of Vietnam and the inception of the ‘great society’ in 1965, it took only 6 years for the government to permanently wreck the dollar, removing it’s peg to gold in 1971. Until then, though it had gradually lost some purchasing power, dollars were still redeemable for gold in foreign exchange transactions – the dollar was still ‘good as gold’ to a large degree. And until then, the US held enough gold reserves to back the dollars that had been created. Now Ben Bernanke, the head of the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank, the institution which issues our money, says there is not enough gold _on the entire planet_ to back all the dollars (that’s at $1500+/oz, gold was $35/oz in 1971!). That says it all. All of those extra dollars dilute the value of every dollar you earn or save, and you never see any of it, unless you work in the financial system or are dependent on government for your sustenance. And all of those extra dollars have to be parked somewhere, to avoid being further eroded by inflation. Booms and busts wreck the middle class, and have helped to hollow out our economy.

        Ron Paul understands this issue. Until _this_ changes, the middle class will be treading water, at best, still captive to a system what relies upon ever-expanding credit and money supply to establish a facade of ‘solvency’ and ‘growth’.

      I’m beginning to think that Beck is even running ahead of his own ADHD. It grieves me because he has sure informed a lot of Americans about a lot of things, even though he has failed to give credit for some of the material he’s scoffed. Breitbart has pointed this out.

      But both Breitbart and Beck are super super egos. I like them both but I recognize that their egos do get in the way… but their egos drive them as well. And that’s a character weakness for sure, and can be unethical… in the case of Beck scoffing material that is not his. He’s taken from Horowitz and others without attribution. And Pamela Geller says that attribution is the currency of trade in the blogosphere. Even Beck’s book, Original Argument, does not belong to him… it was written by Joshua Charles, but you won’t find Charles’ name on the cover, just in the introduction. Beck talks a good game about ethics and humility… but there is no humility in publishing a book with his own name bigger than the title… yet the real author (translator actually) is relegated to a post introduction introduction.

      But I still like and appreciate Beck… what I don’t quite buy into is this perfection quest that is happening. A hero is dropped off the cliff in one day… if the hero says something stupid. I see a lot of Beck bashing… and to be sure, this comment from Beck about Newt/Obama is just baffling. Can Newt be called a progressive? Sure on some things… but we live in an all-or-nothing perfection seeking world… particularly in the blogosphere… and God help someone if they slip up. I really don’t know if there’s a maturity deficit, or an unwillingness to see that even our heros have flaws… and if the flaws show… then trash him.

      Anyway… that’s just my thoughts.

        My personal take on this is that Beck has received his marching orders from his church. The Powers-That-Be in the LDS church hierarchy have told Beck it’s okay to support Santorum or Bachmann because they don’t have a chance of winning. That leaves the Mormon Romney and Newt. Now who do *you* think they want? That’s why you’re hearing Beck say he’ll vote for Romney, or even Ron Paul third party, but not Newt.

        This has NOTHING to do with “progressive-ism” or “big government” because Romney is both in spades. It has everything to do with Beck’s “faith”.

        Just a note, in the early days of the LDS church there was a squad of Mormon goons called the “Destroying Angels”. You should Google it.

The consequences of both can be life destroying.

          • If you want a candidate with strong morals and faith then you want Ron Paul. unless Paul is nominated your choice will be between a Socialist(Obama) and a Fascist(Newt,Romney,Santorum,Perry,Bachman) none of the other candidates believe in the constitution or limited government they simply dont just look at their records. Newt wants the US to have the same drug policies as singapore which is death if caught with any kind or amount of drugs is that liberty? romney believes that the government whether state or federal can force us to purchase insurance. Bachman wants to amend the first amendment and make it a crime for americans to watch porn in their own homes is that liberty?Santorum is nothing but a bush lackey all he did while in politics was promote neoconservatism thats to politicians like him we were given the UNpatriotic act which strips us of the protection of the bill of rights is that liberty? Perry thinks government has the power to force people to get vaccinated is that liberty? Ron Paul is only saying what Thomas Jefferson said they both believe that people when left along by the government will prosper. they believe that all men are created equal and should be treated equally under the law. Pretty much everyone else in politics (like newt, mitt, rick) are believers in Alexander Hamilton who believed that wealthy since they had the land and the education should rule. He also believed in a private central bank like the bank of england that manipulates a fiat currency for its ow benefit. He also believed that we should have a large national debt he believed the bigger the debt the more stake the common man had in the government. Which philosophy leads to a free society? Rule by the rich and the elites for their own personal gain? Or rule by we the people with a republic with checks and balances to prevent mob rule? thats our choice its not a left or right issue its simply a question of do want to be ruled? or do you want to rule yourself?

            • The first duty of the Federal Government is to defend the country against foreign enemies. Ron Paul appears to have no interest in this, which should disqualify him in the minds of all Americans who love their country.

Just because he isn’t quick to send missles off to another country doesn’t mean he’s weak on defense. But we need a break from all the military hostilities to build or economic streght back, and then when it counts we can flex the military if need be.

We don’t even know what caused the failure of his marriages, after all marriage takes two, who knows to what extent there were issues beyond his “lack of character.” Especially given the “Star Wars Cantina” list of characters who are suddenly jumping on the “holier than thou” bandwagon. If the scumbags of our political world are so eager to shoot Newt down, heh, it makes me think even more of him. Reminds me of Reagan, the way they attack him.

            • Fool me once shame on you — fool me 3 times, shame on me.

              His lack of character was also noticed by his own party when they made him the only Speaker in history to be found guilty of ethics violations and fined him $300,000.

              It appears your elevator doesn’t run to the top, Newt is the epitome of a Washington insider, The guy is a con man, huckster, charlatan, look what he said about the other politicians in the Freddy Mac and then claimed he did no wrong(80 to 100 million from medical insurance, Freddy Mac) this guy is the lowest of the low. Funny the self righteous bible thumping religious fanatics are supporting this lowest of lows.You talk about scum bags who disagree with you , when you are supporting the best of the them. He will take the GOP to the worst defeat since Goldwater in 1964 and lose control of the House.

          Not even possible. The LDS church is in no way endorsing Romney. Many LDS I know are voting for Perry, Bachmann, Santorum and even Gingrich. Could Beck’s position have anything to do with Newt’s own policy flip-flops and adoption of progressive ideas to the left of Romney? Beck is a Bachmann supporter. That is who he is backing. I get the feeling he’d be fine with Santorum and Perry as well. What? Is the LDS church endorsing those three as well?

          Beck may not know that Ron Paul is not a rabid church goer. I support Ron on many things but disagree too much on some others. Newt is better choice that anybody else over there.

          • I’m not sure whether he goes to church or not, but Newt divorced several wives(one with cancer), and Newt’s a government money grubber. Ron Paul ran a successful medical practice as a career before becoming a congressman. He made sure that his practice refused all federal medicare money, and instead provided care for free to individuals that could not pay without medicare. He also made sure that his practice never performed abortions. This is a man of moral resolve, and faith. He’s also the only candidate that I have seen make convincing arguments about government using the Bible. Here’s the link of that: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=Wnj-5z9NJoY#t=148s

              Leviathan…that “cancer divorce” story is a fabrication perpetrated by Mother Jones years ago. The story was corrected and written about by Newt’s daughter with the woman in question. His wife is the one who filed for divorce, she was having a benign tumour removed and she is alive & well today. Newt kept quiet about the entire situation because she was a very private person but recently I heard him speak of this.

            • Newt divorced his second wife. His first wife divorced him. We are electing a President, not a religious leader. When Newt was in office, he had a solid conservative record. Ron Paul’s record is good on domestic policy, but he is a Libertarian and opposes taking the measures required to defend the country. With Cain out because he was slandered, Newt is the best of those left.

                This kind of thinking will give the Dem’s the House back and the GOP will suffer the largest defeat since Goldwater in 1964. As an Independent I will vote for Obama if Newt gets the nomination or any other Republican crazy except Romney, but I would vote for Ron Paul if he ran third party.

          Nah, the Mormons aren’t telling him what to do. No politician is spiritual enough to listen to any religious leader…at least in this country. They are driven solely by their own egos.
          And everyone except the mormons are aware of their history. But if you do read history you will see many fringe groups were started in this “enlightenment” period of America….Jehovah’s Witnesses, Seventh Day Adventists, Church of Science, Christian or whatever it’s called now, Church of Christ and later the Pentecostals to name a few….all of them far removed from historic Christianity. Years from now we may have a follower of L Ron Hubbard running.
          Beck has run off the deep end I think. He appears to be crying “the end of the world” and “stock up your food” just a bit too much, along with the conspiracy theories.
          One of the mormon “prophecies” is that America will fall and the leaders will come to Salt Lake City to ask them for help. Beck may be playing with that so who knows what is in his head. He has become a little man though, so I wouldn’t sweat him much.
          Besides, if he says he hates Newt, some people may come to like Newt to spite him.

              Those ads are everywhere because all they’ve gotten from his run is negative press. Those ads are a response to the effects of his run–exactly the opposite of what you suggest. This, of course, is the response you’d expect from a secular media and often cynical public. It would only get worse if Romney were elected. Not even that–he just has to win the GOP nomination for Obama to spend $1 billion to smear him.

          And Beck says he’s all for Israel, and Newt Gingrich is very much for Israel. He wants to do everything to protect them, and as a Christian, knows what’s going on, that this administration has allowed them to be encircled. How can Beck not see that? Even Charles Krauthammer has said that Newt is CORRECT in his history of there being no formal “palestinian” people. He said the other day on Bret Baier, “It shows he knows his history!” I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, “Glenn Beck says HE can change, and HE can seek redemption, and FORGIVENESS, and lay on the floor in a heap crying, and have young children and HAVE A CHANGE OF MINE (i.e., repent)….but he won’t allow Newt Gingrich to seek redemption; forgiveness; have a change of mind because he’s now a grandfather, and sees where these radicals are taking this country. He’s the only one talking about Obama being a socialist and radical, and has even called him a MARXIST. I don’t hear Romney saying that ONE TIME. When asked if Romney thought Obama was a socialist, he said, “Well…I don’t want to call him a SOCIALIST….but….” Wishy/washy… and yet Andy Stern has probably made 10 more trips to the WH within one week! I am discombobulated by Beck, because, I promise you….YOU TUBE any Gingrich speech from the past ten years, and you will THINK you’re listening to Beck! They sound exactly the same. In fact, if you watch THE FIVE today, they showed a commercial by the DNC all the way back to 1984 stating that Newt was a Tea Partier, and FOR SMALL GOV’T, well before the new tea party. They meant it as a “DOWNER” for him, but as they stated on The Five…it’s showing people that he’s NOT a progressive but a CONSERVATIVE! Even Bob Beckel calls him a CONSERVATIVE. Has Glenn Beck lost his mind??? Doesn’t he do IS homework? He says to go to the original sources…hasn’t he listened to any of his speeches since 1984? Apparently the DNC has! I’m disappointed in Beck.

          I agree with you bro, you are very right. I am privy to a document that was formulated in the mid 20th century. In it the LDS had a bunch of items /goals. Top on the list were the presidency, bunch of Governorships and an elite standing in the political class. I would like to see how many mormons are in political power, governors, senators etc. Beck was lifted to give them a voice in the media. The ploy is deep and many are unware of it. How do you think Romney has not gone lower than 20% of the electorate.
          Huntsman isto play the roles of a decoy and then understudy Romney. He is the next generation of presidential aspirant wether Romney fails or wins.
          I have been waiting to see how Beck would fall intothe plan and it is either very bad timing for what is happening or he has shown his true colour.
          Where is all the love he has been talking about, Vote for Ron Paul? What happen to restoring courage and all the Jews whom he has so recently began to (or allege) to love.
          Worst still, Mormonism hates Jews. They see them as a waste of time as God will only save a number of them.
          I am really worried now for whats going on, I am disappointed in Glenn.

        las1 – all I can say is I agree with you and believe you are dead right. I do a lot of reading myself and have too found that much of Beck’s material is somewhat plagiarized considering he tends to suggest that much of what he claims to have uncovered is actually the work of others including authors such as Ayn Rand, Horowitz, Goldberg, and even the Drudge Report. Every now and then he will suggest people read certain books etc, but personally think he does this to maintain credibility with those in his audience who are aware he does regurgitate others work habitually. I too, recognize his contributions but hope his intentions to pick a candidate for us, or destroy others could seriously backfire and provide a deathblow to our hopes of a constructive 2012 and beyond. There are no perfect candidates and we must realize that what has gotten us in this mess is allowing the political class to rig the system in their favor setting up a ruling class almost completely devoid of its citizenry. Whoever the front runner is, we must make sure this is a land slide election and keep voting these bums out election by election.

      • Spencer Collet

        I am going to start this off by saying I am NOT a Beck fan, but I believe that my reasons for not being one are summed up very well up here. Las, you hit the nail on the head when you talked about how these talking head pundits rattle off views of which they are not the intellectual owners. It actually makes for a less informed society rather than a more informed one.

        Glenn Beck, Bill O’Reilly, and the likes of Rachel Maddow and Al Sharpton on the left side of the equation, all boil down complex issues of policy into thirty second soundbites and titles like, “class warfare” and “1% vs. the 99%.” Seriously, it has gotten to a point where I was having lunch with a friend talking about tax reform. He said, we should have a balanced budget amendment and the 9-9-9 plan. Now putting the fact that you cannot possibly balance the budget(to the standards a balanced budget amendment would need) and do 9-9-9 at the same time, I asked him if he knew what those policies mean. He told me about how they would keep the US from becoming a socialist state, but then I asked him if he knew what socialism was, and he said, “yea, its like the old USSR and Cuba right now.” I was stunned. The labels that we attach to the policy debate in our country is absolutely making us more stupid for having done it. Socialism is what China has, socialism is what a lot of the eurozone crisis is about, socialism is not communism. By the same token, it is the labels we attach to our political debates that create this us vs. them atmosphere because we put oversimplified ideologies of Republicans and Democrats at odds with one another. I think this oversimplification occurs because the people relaying the nature of this us vs. them mentality don’t fully understand what it is they are actually reporting.

        Now I am an Obama supporter and would give Ron Paul a hard look as a third party candidate. I think to say that one side would benefit more from his third party candidacy is a grand assertion. Keep in mind Ron Paul appeals to the pro gay marriage pro abortion pro legal marijuana types just as much as his anti tax anti spending types. He thinks that the government cannot be large both in what they can tell you to do and what they can take from you. I think it is the polar two sided media we have, however, that keeps a legitimate third party candidate from a run and taking votes from both Republicans and Democrats because lets face it, they are both to blame. Nay lets face it we are all to blame. I am 21 and have only voted once, but to those of you that have voted in decades worth of elections quit the partisan rhetoric and realize that both Republicans and Democrats abused the system, they both profited from the un-regulated economy that got so out of control it crumbled, so let’s not give either one any ground and take them both out of office in 2012.

        • JenB

          If I contend that both parties are responsible for the problems we are facing, will you contend that the measures Obama is taking is only making the situation worse? Pitting the middle class and poor against the rich is not productive and history has proven that it is actually dangerous. Continuously spending money like it is running out of style is not working. Nothing he is doing is working. I will give him Bin Laden, but last I checked, offing OBL isn’t creating jobs. I could go on and on, but I rather not get carpel tunnel.

          To say that it is a grand assertion that a third party candidate would benefit one party over the other, is naive and shows that you really don’t know your history. It is said that history tends to repeat itself.

          This grand assertion has happened before. Ross Perot allowed Clinton to win with like 42% if I am not mistaken. (might be a point or two off on the %) The MAJORITY of the country voted against Clinton, yet, he still won. Basic math can show you that a candidate CAN win WITHOUT a majority of the population wanting that candidate as their President. If 30% went to Paul and 30% went to Romney and 40% went to Obama, 60% (a majority) of the country didn’t want Obama. That is why a third party run is not good.

          You are right in that republicans and democrats contributed to the problems of the U.S. What you must understand though is that the democrats have committed much more to the demise of the U.S. than the republicans. Why can I confidenty say this? It has to do with the ideology that each party holds to. Democrats almost always have a tax and spend agenda in regards to spending for social programs and taxing the hard working achievers. Many republicans do not have their minds operating correctly, but it is only in the republican party that you will find the right ideology that espouses conservatism. Liberalism, espoused heavily by the dem party, is the greatest enemy to the U.S. right now.

          It seems many past Obama supporters, probably homeless and with little hope of a job to CHANGE that.. are turning to Dr. Paul.. He is someone most of us can agree on.. and yes some issues are not what any conservative would feel good about but neither is most of what has gone on for many years now..
          The problem I see is you have for what 13 years politicians proclaiming I would never allow Iran to become a nuclear power.. well guess what?

      • If Newt wins the Republican nomination, and if Glenn Beck is to be consistent, then he will have to endorse Obama for a second term, or endorse a third party candidate, or endorse no one. During his railing against Newt the other morning it suddenly dawned on me that Glenn will most likely have to endorse Obama.

        Over and over again Glenn has made it plainly clear that he was glad that Obama won over McCain, because it would wake America up. McCain would continue the slow, incremental slide into socialism, while Obama would send us full-tilt into it, and Glenn has said on numerous occasions that this outcome was probably for the best, so that Americans would finally realize where we are heading.

        However, if Newt somehow manages to win the nomination, then obviously Glenn’s work is not yet done. Afterall, if even conservatives vote for Newt in large enough numbers to get him the nod, rather than them voting en masse for real conservatives like Bachman or Santorum, then something has gone wrong and conservatives are still asleep; certainly Americans in general must still be asleep to the truth then.

        And so, in a race between Obama and Newt, Glenn’s only consistent course of action would be to endorse Obama, or vote for a third-party candidate like Ron Paul, which would be the same thing. Four more years should be enough to finally wake America up, eh Glenn?

        • Voting third party is NOT the same as endorsing Obama. Not even close. When you vote your conscious (third party or otherwise), you are making a statement that you are a voter and you support that candidates beliefs/plans, etc.

          I think Beck was ABSOLUTELY right about McCain. (I voted for McCain-Palin only because of Palin). I would hope, if Newt gets the nomination, Beck will change his mind. But I’d much rather prefer Ron Paul got the nomination. I think it’s still quite possible he can pull it off… but probably not likely.

          Voting for Obama is voting for socialism. Voting third party may end up “helping” to elect Obama, but it’s not even close to endorsing or voting for him. So no, Glenn would not be consistent if he would endorse Obama. He might be consistent if he went third party.

          I haven’t ever voted for a candidate I truly liked since Ross Perot. I knew both Bushes were traitors and I was proven right both times. Bush II was the worst of all. Medicare Part D, No Child Left Behind and getting himself involved in wars he was too afraid to fight. (6 months surrounding Fallujah, WTF?). Bush was one of the WORST presidents ever. He is what gave us Obama.

          • You’re welcome to make your statement, as it everyone else, but at the end of the day, conservatives voting for a third party candidate this time around ensures Obama wins. Idealism is wondeful, but if your guy doesn’t get elected, only the other guy’s initiatives get put into law. Period. You say Bush was horrible; fine. But at least with him in there we had some influence on him, such as getting him to drop the amnesty plan he had in mind, and stopping him from nominated whats-her-name to the Supreme Court. I don’t see us having much sway over what Obama does. And that is a big difference, whether you liked Bush or not; we were his base of support, and so we had a say in how he governed. We have Nothing to use on Obama to get him to change his plans. We remove him through this election, or we don’t. Period.

    • Why is Paul a disaster? Please don’t give me the usual remarks that he’s crazy, a nut or a loon. I’d like to hear, in a meaningful way, how Paul is a disaster. Yes, we all know you don’t like his foreign policy, but that can’t be the only reason. Is one man’s foreign policy more important than the people of the US finding a job? Get the priorities in order and stop following the “I hate Ron Paul” talking points.

      • What good is a job if the country is destroyed? I don’t think you realize that wars happen all the time and the only reason that the US is still standing is because it is stronger than the rest. With Ron Paul, he’d do away with that. This is why Ron Paul is a certified nut job. He doesn’t understand what consequences the fall of Israel will mean to the Western world. He has no idea why the 9/11 attack happened on that date. He believes that if you play nice, people who have been brought up to hate everyone who is not like them will suddenly also play nice. This kind of gullibility is not only extreme in size, it is exactly what many Arab countries have been waiting for. In fact, they are counting on it and profiting from this from liberals to make the West believe whatever they want… and Ron Paul wants to deliver all of the liberal naiveté to them on a silver platter wrapped in a libertarian décor.

        So your priorities are really messed up. FATALLY messed up. The belief of utopia when people want to kill you regardless of what you do is the very definition of insane.

        Next time you ask yourself why people think Ron Paul is nuts, ask yourself this, “What good is my job if I’m dead?” Freedom and security go hand in hand. Ron Paul doesn’t understand that.

        • Insert Ben Franklin security vs liberty quote here. But seriously? We spend more on defense than the rest of the world combined. I think we can afford to scale back a little, especially when the boogyman is Iran. Yeah their leadership nuts, and scary things can happen there, but we really don’t need trillions upon trillions of dollars every year to deal with that problem. Besides, everyone else on planet Earth hates them too. That is including the Arabs. Iran is working very hard to get more Middle Eastern states to convert to a theocratic style of government, and the old order isn’t too happy about it. King Abdullah in particular doesn’t like it. State on State violence has been very rare since WWII. If you are seriously concerned about an armed invasion of the United States you are beyond delusional.

  • The last time we had a Republican president and a Republican congress we got Medicare Part D, the Patriot Act, the TSA, and No Child Left Behind. The only GOP candidates I trust not to repeat those mistakes are Ron Paul and Gary Johnson. The rest don’t even talk a good game to me.

    • THIS!!!! Thank you. I’m not convinced that Newt would be better. At least with Obama in there and a republican congress we have gridlock which is a hell of a lot better that what we had last time with a republican congress and president.

      • I need to like this a few hundred more times. If Newt or Romney are elected, they will co-opt the Republican Congress and we’ll end up only slightly less f-ed than if Obama won a second term. Ugh!

This is exactly why I stopped watching him on Fox (and didn’t join GBTV). Glenn is an excellent performer and informed on conservatism (not close at all to the level of the Great One, Mark Levin). Glenn will draw you in and then will backstab you when you least expect it.

I can take or leave him on a lot of stuff lately- and while he’s made quite a name for himself, but he’s totally lost me now. I’m not for Newt at all either, but third party? That’s crazy talk coming from someone who ought to know better.

    I might not understand everything about politics- It wasn’t that long that I had to ask what would happen if a third party (Sarah) would run, but I understood the ramifications of that.

      I’ve listened to him hawk gold for some time now, too. Now, I’ve bought gold over the last couple of years and made good money on it. But if the economies collapsed, as he says they will and you need gold to protect you, I can tell you that gold won’t help at all. With no governments around, what you need is barter material (TP, cigs, booze, etc) and plenty of lead! Gold would just be pretty doorstop material. He’s made good money preaching it, though.

      • I don’t have any gold, not much of the barter materials you speak of (lol) but we’re pretty good on lead and other assorted items 😉

        • Anonymous

          Hehe, lead is a very good start.

      • The old world economies are fixing to collapse, but there is enough wealth there that its not going to be an “every man for himself” type of deal. Besides its not like this is going to reach all places across the globe. South America is doing quite well at the moment especially Argentina and Brazil. The U.K. is taking steps to protect themselves from a collapsing EuroZone, and is taking steps to help their financial situation. Many Asian nations are looking to be big players in the coming decades. Youll have a place to redeem your gold. That said, I can’t believe how much it has gone up. Generally gold has a fairly stable purchasing power regardless of where it is in relation to the dollar. Right now it is way above that. I realize it is there to reflect the monetary base which is also sky high, but I can’t believe its gone this high already. I would probably sell. If indeed the monetary base becomes an inflation problem you should have time to buy the gold back, and you protect yourself from a huge loss if gold prices fall back to Earth.

        • Anonymous

          I’ve bought gold from $700 to $1000, with the intention to sell it at $2000. At $1900, it took a turn downward to where it is now (due to Soros’s money getting out), but if the Euro collapses, it will easily hit $2500. However, I believe all world markets will follow Europe, as they aren’t very smart about it. If gotten out early enough, I will have plenty of stocked up barter supplies. Just my humble opinion. Gold or money, they won’t mean much.

      Ron Paul is not anti – Israel. Israel, or any other country is not his main focus. His focus is the economy, cutting spending, auditing the federal reserve, and eventually ending the federal reserve, lowering taxes, and getting Big Brother to stop watching each and every one of our moves with bills like the patriot act, and agencies like the TSA and EPA. Israel and foreign affairs are on the bottom of his list of priorities at this time because of the dire economic state, see unemployment rate.

If you vote for Newt or Romney you’re voting for more of the same from Obama and Bush and the blood will be on your hands. Ron Paul as a third party will take votes from both sides because he supports the people, not his party.

    Seems Beck’s rating are down and he needs contraversy to boost them back up. Beck peaked on 8/28/2010.

  • Mitt Romney is a bad politician. Newt Gingrich is a dangerous man. If Gingrich were the nominee I’d vote for One-bama. Why? Because better to vote for the obvious evil than vote for an evil guy whose masquerading as a conservative. When One-bama destroys the country at least the Dems will take the blame. When Gingrich destroys the country the GOP and Tea Party will get the blame.

    Gingrich would be a Christmas present to the Progressives because they know he’ll jump into bed, or on the couch, with anybody who will increase his power and wealth.

    Here’s a clue for you all: Do you know why Newt did the spot with Nancy Pelosi on Global Warming? Because like all the other lobbyists in DC he was hopping to cash in on all the money to be spent funding carbon sequestration. Newt Gingrich can be bought and the price ain’t that high.

    It’s a moot point now because when Beck gets done exposing Newt he’ll be lucky to win Iowa.

    Did I mention that Newt was evil?

    BTW: I don’t think Beck would support Ron Paul.

            Romney’s conservative accomplishments? Piece of cake.

            In one term as Gov. of MA, Romney:

            –balanced the budget every year
            –turned a $3B dollar deficit into a $2B surplus, without raising taxes and while reforming healthcare, which, fools, has brought the premium of the average individual down
            –vetoed in-state tuition for illegal aliens
            –deputized state police officers to check for immigration papers at stops and arrest illegals
            –led the fight against gay marriage in Massachusetts
            –vetoed stem cell legislation to protect farming of the fetus (this marked his public announcement of being pro-life…and he wrote so in the Boston Globe in 2005…where the rubber met the road, when legislation hit his desk, Romney sided with the pro-life movement)

            All this, MJS, mind you, was accomplished with a state legislature that is 85% Democrat. There is more, but this should be enough to shut you up or at least make you open your mind and be honest in your attempts.

            One last: what is it that you have contributed to the conservative cause, MJS?

            • Anonymous

              Supported cap and trade styled measured in MA (the first state to do so)

              Anti-Second Amendment (furthered gun regulations)

              HE RAISED Taxes, er FEES IN THE STATE

              How many changes in his position has he had? Bottom line, he cannot be trusted and conservatives will not support him. I will stay home for Mitt.

              Yeah, because Romney is 85% Democrat, that’s how he did it.

              What have I contributed? I served my country in active duty overseas, contributed financially to veterans causes, relocated and worked on campaigns for the mid-terms in CHICAGO and I am standing by on the east coast for ANYBODY BUT ROMNEY to help their campaigns.

          Catholics, Protestants and Jews do not believe in the insane words of the Book of Mormon. The Mormon PR department has tried the “Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints” crap, and then they are attempting to tell people they are Christian to make them seem more mainstream. They are not and under no circumstances are they Christian. Simply putting “Christ” into a name, doesn’t make it so.

    Seems like Beck has moved into big head territory!

    What Paul has said about 9/11 and foreign policy should disqualify him for President in any sane persons eyes.

    I would much rather see Bachman over Newt, she is good in debates, was expousing conservative values when most of the others were still wallowing in leftist nuance. Also, having a good conservative woman POTUS candidate, would draw a lot of female votes.

    Santorum is just to far back in the pack, but would certainly support him if he could move up.

    Newt did balance the budget, and is good in debates.

    Perry I think flusters too easily and would probably lose in debates with O.

    Romney is just a rich northeast republican, which is the same as a right-leaning liberal.

      Denial does not make anyone stand on higher ground, his is entitled to his opinion.

      Do you actually believe we have not looked out for interests in the middle east , other than humanitarian?

  • Hyperbole on Glenns part. I highly doubt he would vote for Ron Paul. He continues to totally ignore Huntsman which is strange considering his relationship with Huntsman’s father. Huntsman is also the only one that wants to withdraw from Afghanistan like Glenn has advocated.

      Do you know whether or not Huntsman’s Dad believes in Darwinian Macro-evolution and manmade global-warming like his son does? Those are two great lies that taste great together, unless you’re running as a conservative. Then, they are just two more piles of soul-killing, hell-sending, money-wasting hoaxes.

      • In his book Jon Huntsman Sr. says that morally people in the past were better in their personal behavior but at the same time he has respect for the Youth who are more concerned with taking care of the Earth than his generation was. I do not know if he believes in global warming but he does think we should do more to combat pollution. Darwin was still a christian when he came out with his theory and it is not inconsistent with mormonism because we do not believe the Earth is only 6,000 years old. Instead we believe that the earth was created from already existing matter. This is consistent with the fact that it is impossible to create or destroy Matter.

          Who does believe the Earth is 6000 yrs old? The Holy Bible does not say how old it is. It does describe dinosaurs though…both land and sea dinos. Also, nothing is impossible with God Brian. he invented the laws of physics and every other scientific law.

          I heard Huntsman say with my own ears that he believes in both concepts, i.e., manmade global-warming and evolution. Whether that is at odds with the Mormanism or not, I do not know. I think the Morman Bible is 100% BS. Although there might be an edible biscuit somewhere in it, I still ouldn’t put it in my mouth.

          These three “beliefs” make Huntsman supremely gullible IMO.

          • The only place in the bible that could be said to talk about Dinosaurs is probably Revelations where it talks about a Dragon. I do not know of any other verses. Please enlighten me.

              The name dinosaur wasn’t around then. Only way they described them was to say dragon.

  • I really don’t understand Beck anymore. First, he blew the Ron Paul backed candidate for Texas Governor Debra Medina out of the race and now he wants to vote for Ron Paul. Glenn Beck is on a fast track to becoming a Legend in his own Mind!

    • He was helping Perry in that instance-Medina though very much not a true politican is a patriot and a strong believer in private property rights and seems to love the Constitution! That interview really opened my eyes to Beck!

    • Anonymous

      Thank you for reminding me of that. Beck opposed Medina after she was exposed as a “truther” while on his show. I understand Mr. Paul has not put any distance between himself and the “truthers”, if anything Mr. Paul has been willing to embrace the “truthers”, not so good.

  • Republicans see Gingrich, Romney as “Acceptable” Nominees (gallup poll)

    Candidates Acceptable / NOT Acceptable
    Gingrich —- 62% / 34%
    Romney —- 54% / 41%
    Perry —— 41% / 52%
    Bachmann– 37% / 56%
    Paul ——- 34% / 62%
    Huntsman– 28% / 58%
    Santorum — 27% / 62%

    Newt Gingrich (62%) and Mitt Romney (54%) are the only two candidates Republicans say would be acceptable presidential nominees from their party, emphasizing the degree to which the GOP race has narrowed down to these two men at this juncture. A majority of Republicans say each of the other six candidates measured would not be acceptable nominees.

      There is only one poll that I trust. It has a margin of error +/- value of 0. It’s nukeman’s vote and noone else. I haven’t seen any good citizens vote yet and no poll of 300-1000 hand-picked people is going to tell me which way the country is leaning. Sorry.

      • Well polls can change, we all know that, and I think Santorum’s not-acceptable rating should change after his strong debate performance last time

    Beck had a call in talker soon after his Newt interview. The guy made it clear he was a BIG Beck fan – had been to his shows, owned his books, subscribed to his network. But he voiced disappointment in Beck’s treatment of Newt and how Beck was derisively winking to his co-workers on air. Beck didnt’ wink once. But the callers point was Beck seemed to have a “whatever” sort of smirking attitude to Gingrich’s longer answers. But because Beck didn’t “wink”as the caller stated, Beck went on to deride the caller as disingenuous and dissembling. In short he treated this fan like crap. Not that I needed more to prove Beck is a bit of a poof. But his rude and condescending treatment of an earnest fan for a slight embellishment showed me that he’s not merely a poof. He’s a bit of a prick. An overly sensitive, conspiratorial prick at that.

    I wish all media outlets would allow presidential candidates into each debate with only one requirement; that they have held elective office at the state or federal level for at least one term. Exceptions can be made, but we shouldn’t go off of poll numbers and money raised to decide who gets in the debate.

    How else will we get good ideas to surface?

  • Voting for Newt would be to destory all of the work of 2010. It would teach the younger generation that Newt is a conservative. Truth be told, Obama being in office has been the best thing to wake up the conservative movement. Mitt has no principles and can be swayed by an organized conservative base. Newt, however, actually has leftist tendencies that he will doubtless follow.

    • If the media would have done their job you would see in black and white just how detrimental Obama is to this country and you wouldn’t be saying Newt is the same. Though not perfect Newt is far more acceptable than 4 more years of Obama.

          Exactly, they did the same thing to Governor Palin in 2008 and the libs are still doing it. I did not see anyone of the GOP come to her aid. Oh I forgot she is not a DC insider. I recall Rush saying the left will let you know who they fear. Governor Palin is not in the race and I’m sure the left is very relieved that Governor Palin is not in the race.
          I think they would be happy if it were Mitt or Newt. Governor Palin our country needs you, you have a proven record and are your own person, beholding to no one!!

    Voting for Paul over Newt would guarantee a win for the GOP. It is and has been known that many on the left would vote for Paul over Obama, but not Newt over Obama. Independents would also embrace Paul over Newt vs Obama. If the GOP can’t bring others over from the left and gather those in the middle they don’t stand a chance and that’s where Paul comes in b/c he is wanted by so many on both sides.

    I’ve posted this to Rshill7, but I’ll repeat it here as well.

    I’m beginning to think that Beck is even running ahead of his own ADHD. It grieves me because he has sure informed a lot of Americans about a lot of things, even though he has failed to give credit for some of the material he’s scoffed. Breitbart has pointed this out.

    But both Breitbart and Beck are super super egos. I like them both but I recognize that their egos do get in the way… but their egos drive them as well. And that’s a character weakness for sure, and can be unethical… in the case of Beck scoffing material that is not his. He’s taken from Horowitz and others without attribution. And Pamela Geller says that attribution is the currency of trade in the blogosphere. Even Beck’s book, Original Argument, does not belong to him… it was written by Joshua Charles, but you won’t find Charles’ name on the cover, just in the introduction. Beck talks a good game about ethics and humility… but there is no humility in publishing a book with his own name bigger than the title… yet the real author (translator actually) is relegated to a post introduction introduction.

    But I still like and appreciate Beck… what I don’t quite buy into is this perfection quest that is happening. A hero is dropped off the cliff in one day… if the hero says something stupid. I see a lot of Beck bashing… and to be sure, this comment from Beck about Newt/Obama is just baffling. Can Newt be called a progressive? Sure on some things… but we live in an all-or-nothing perfection seeking world… particularly in the blogosphere… and God help someone if they slip up. I really don’t know if there’s a maturity deficit, or an unwillingness to see that even our heros have flaws… and if the flaws show… then trash him.

    Anyway… that’s just my thoughts.

      I appreciate your point. But if I disagreed with it and decided to call you a homosexual for your stance, would I be justified to do so? NO, I would not. And if I came back tomorrow to further explain why I disagreed with you, without ever addressing the poorly placed homosexual remark, I would be wrong (VERY wrong). Let’s see what Beck says tonight.

      No offense, btw, to your sexual preference. None of my d… business.

            Oh now I see what your comment was about. Yeah… you’re absolutely right… totally agree. The race baiting thing from Beck was really baffling and was just sooo what the liberals do. Yeah… I’m going to sit on the web and see what Beck has to say… I sure hope he addresses it

            The fact that I like Beck a lot makes it difficult to explain his remarks… I hope he just had a hiccup in his circumspection meter.

            My other remarks were just addressing a broader problem I see a lot… namely that some people have a tendency to really dump on someone they previously held in high esteem, or pile on when the chips are down for someone. I see it with Newt, with Beck now, I saw it with Cain. There is a level of demonization going on as well against imperfect candidates… and talk of voting third party which imho is just nuts.

                Man… couldn’t agree more. I’d vote for an empty tuna can over Obama… does that make me a racist? I hope he does resolve it, because this could really wreck him big time and destroy any good will and credibility he has built up with conservatives.

  • carver donnelly

    People You do realize that at least one of the Supremes will probably retire during the next term? Do you think allowing Obama to place another liberal on the court is worth waking up conservatives by voting third party? Do you realize what is at stake? How can you entertain this notion?

      I expect one to go before Obama leaves (whether it be through (forced)retirement or unexpected death?!?). Doesn’t matter if he leaves in 2012 or 2016, he will do something to cause one of the conservative justices to go. With a bench full of left-leaning justices, the laws will be skewed for decades to come.

      By forced, I mean Chicago style.

    Beck also made a strong argument that while Romney has been Progressive at the State level, Grinchich is a proven Progressive at the Federal level and he still is and will be as President.

    Beck also said vote for the BEST candidate in the Primary. He warned that it is the political class and media who sets the fear narritive of “we need some who can beat Obama”.

    He also pointed out that the media is being silent on all of Newt’s Big Government Insider baggage until the general election. In other words is he really as “electable” as we are being spoon fed by the media?

    I will not vote for a Progressive. If it takes an independent thIrd party run to take back the Republican Party, will support it.

    Progressives have destroyed America. I will not vote for one because he wears an elephant suit and is not as radical a Progressive as Obama.

    I’m sorry guys, but I cannot get excited about either Romney or Gingrich. And I have to conclude that if Gingrich got the nomination that he would indeed give the VP nod to Romney. They’re interchangable no matter what. I’m sick of settling for someone who I know is totally against us. Ron Paul is not the answer either. We are all just so frustrated that we have no one who carries our ‘REAL’ message of Conservatism, that we end up fighting each other over who is the WORST candidate, not the BEST.

    WE’RE SCREWED EITHER WAY.

    This is another indication that Glenn needs to keep his comments about the candidates to himself and encourage people in their own communities to get involved with caring for one another and not look to the government, etc. Most of the people who watch Glenn are not Zombies and they take good information and use it. But they also think for themselves. Glenn did not open my eyes in 2007 my eyes were opened to the dishonest MSM and I went looking for more information and stumbled across Beck while he was still on CNN. I learned a lot from Beck and hopefully he will get back to not sticking his nose in the political candidates and educate the youth and others on all the history they have missed because of the Progessives trying to rewrite history. I try not to have knee jerk reactions to one or two statements that people make but look at the big picture. Newt is a complicated candidate. Remember that he balanced the budget under Clinton and that is a Tea Party position, he voted against the tax increase that Bush one got passed. A balanced budget in it’s self would limit the size of government. That too is a Tea Party position. Newt believes in the second amendment and is a strong supporter of Israel. This information about him is enough to make him way to the right of OBAMA. So Beck is absolutely wrong on Newt. I am still a Perry supporter and I will not change that support until another candidate has won the R nomination. Perry has a proven record. Beck is wrong to encourage a third party candidate this go round. Ron Paul cannot win unless he gets the R nomination and I do not think that will happen. If Ron wanted to be an Independent he should have left the R party a long time ago.

    Who does believe the Earth is 6000 yrs old? The Holy Bible does not say how old it is. It does describe dinosaurs though…both land and sea dinos. Also, nothing is impossible with God Brian. he invented the laws of physics and every other scientific law.

    I heard Huntsman say with my own ears that he believes in both concepts, i.e., manmade global-warming and evolution. Whether that is at odds with the Mormanism or not, I do not know. I think the Morman Bible is 100% BS. Although there might be an edible biscuit somewhere in it, I still ouldn’t put it in my mouth.

    These three “beliefs” make Huntsman supremely gullible IMO.

  • I really don’t understand Glenn Beck anymore. I used to think he had pretty good ideas on values and principles and what is the best course of action for the USA but not anymore. Glenn’s idea of ”tear the house down to save it” is an absolutely insane position to take.

    I mean really think about it. If you don’t get the nominee you want you are going to run and vote thrid party which would guarantee another 4 years of Obama the man you want to remove in the first place??? Get real Glenn because that makes you sound like a cry baby throwing a temper tantrum. You know that a vote for a third party will ensure Obama another 4 more years to completly destroy any hope of restoring the USA domestic eceonomy and foreign policy credability in the world.

    Why the self destruction??

    First you say if Newt was the nominee you would want to vote for Ron Paul third party. Then you say you are really a Rick Santorum supporter and not a Bachmann supporter after you gave such glowing praise on Bachmann and sofball ”i love you” questions in your interview with her.

    If that is the truth (you are a Santorum supporter) then explain to me why you have given multiply interviews with Bachmann over the past 3 months and yet the last time you interviewed Santorum was way back in July over 5 months ago!!! Your arguement is just a weak as your ”guilt by association” arguement about Newt being a progressive just because Newt liked early TR. Reagan liked FDR…same arguement??

    Oh but lets go one better. Rick Santorum, your ”choice” as you claim which I do not believe, said he learned his conservative ideals from Newt and Newt’s ideas on Conservatism made him (Rick Santorum) the Consistant Conservative he is today. THOSE ARE RICK SANTORUM’S OWN WORDS!!! Therefore, by your definition, Rick Santorum must be a Progressive as well. Don’t believe me….listen to the end of the last debate and you will hear Rick Santorum say those very words!!!

    Rick Santorum is a great Conservative Candidate but Newt Gingrich is also a great Conservative Candidate and the two that I think are the best ones as the nominee for the Republican Nomination. I think a Gingrich/Santorum or Santorum/Gingrich would be a slam dunk Reagan scale landslide victory. But under your thoughts you would be voting Ron ‘crazyman” Paul third party and doom us to Obama for another 4 years.

    Glenn, if I may call you Glenn, you have totally lost any credibility with your positions over the past two weeks. (first, obvious bais interviews with candiates over Bachmann ”lovefest”, smearing Newt, and now vote against the Party) You have made weak arguements with insane positions that are irresponsible and insulting to tea party members, Conservatives, and now Republicans in general. As I see it, the only one in this arguement that is definitely not conservative is you.

    To me is seems obvious that something in your life is not going right. You look tired and you are making critical mistakes in your judgement and your positions are not rational. You have become a hypocrite because you preach ”malice toward no one” then you engage in malace now even against the Republican party by advocations of I will vote against the party.

    Glenn, seek help, grow up, clean the fog from your eyes and take off the bais blinders. Look at the whole picture and what would happen with another 4 years of Obama. The nation cannot afford it! You actions are playing right into the hands of our enemies because all you are doing is creating anarchy in the party. I respectfully ask you….PLEASE STOP!

    • your suffering under the delusion that Obama is different that George bush and the republicans are different than the democrats. the average people who belong to these parties do have different view but the establishment of both parties want more welfare more warfare more debt more spending and more government wake up for god sake OPEN YOUR EYES AND SEE

      • what your are trying to say makes no sense. look at my post and read it again. the whole thing not just the first sentence. And yes my arguement is sound because it is based in fact not guilt by association. if anyone needs to open their eyes….it is YOU!

    Glenn is trying to save face and be consistent here. But its not working. With all the shouting he does about standing up for Israel you’d think Ron would be the last guy he’d say he could bring himself to voting for. He just doesn’t make any sense at the moment. To save any credibility he has remaining with the Right, Glenn should recant and admit he has gone overboard with this Newt thing. Otherwise, he should get lost! I always thought it’d be something over-the-top he would say that would end his career as a credible political pundit and social harbinger and I always thought that ‘over-the-top something’ would be something said against the overwhelmingly left-dominated media, but I think I just might have been wrong; it looks as if he’s destroying his credibility within conservative movement and not with the left (not that the left would admit he had any with them anyway). What a shame. Lord Acton’s oft quoted maxim seems to have been proven true once again: “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” Glenn has let the influence he wields with his fans on the right get to his head.

    I guess you also wouldn’t have voted for Reagan seeing his past was politically/personally pure.

        So what you’re saying is that over a 40 year span he’s had a handful of non-conservative positions that outweigh creating the first Republican majority in the House in 5 decades, etc? Also, a lot of the things you’re saying are assertions, especially his “push for global warming legislation,” in which he testified against it. You can find it online or in congressional records. Co-sponsoring bills with Pelosi 418 times? How many of those involve post office names? His ethics charges were eventually thrown out. NAFTA is conservative, free trade, he didn’t support TARP, he like Paul Ryan, said they’d support TARP over nothing because doing nothing would have been disastrous and increased the power of Obama.

        He’s made mistakes over his career, no doubt, but he’s been willing to say when he’s done so and learned from them, which is much better than Obama or even Romney,

    This whole thread reminds of how the left turned on Beck at CNN when he moved from Bush criticism Obama criticism.

  • Professor Why

    And with this, he’s lost me as a listener. So, he claims both Romney and Gingrich are progressives, yet he’d vote for Romney (caveat being if he “had a gun to his head”)… However, if it was Gingrich, he’d be more likely to vote for Ron Paul third-party… He CLAIMS he’s against progressives, yet he’d vote for Romney, who he claimed was a progressive…

    Couple this with his previous statement that it’d have to be about race (in his opinion) if Tea Partiers voted for Gingrich in the primaries and got him the nomination, and I’m done with Beck. As I’ve stated repeatedly, ANY of these candidates is better than the idiot that’s residing in the White House at the moment. I haven’t settled on any of the candidates yet because, frankly, I think they all stink. But I’d still hold my nose and vote for ANY of them in the general election over the Marxist-in-Chief.

  • Beck is correct about Newt. It would be a tough call between voting third party for Paul or GOP for Gingrich. But there’s no question as to which one is more conservative, and it’s not Newt.

    Gingrich has the added disadvantage of being a poor general election candidate. Newt’s personally ugly baggage that the GOP primary voters are willing to look past will define him in the minds of the average general election voter. He would be a colossal mistake as the GOP nominee.

    I also agree with Beck that, of the field, Santorum is the best candidate.

    • So you think social conservatives willing to look past Newt’s ugly baggage will nominate him, but center-right to center-left people, who tend to focus more on economic and fiscal policy, are going to be turned off by his failed marriages a decade after it became news?

      • if it is a choice between a full blown depression with 4 more years of Obama and economic recovery under Newt…you bet your butt they will vote!!!

    • Chocula….your logic just like Glenn Becks is so messed up…. it is sad.

  • Paul also seems to understand when to play the long game. He knows he’s helped change the course of the country. Running third party and assuring an Obama victory basically destroys everything he’s helped do over the last 4 years and probably hurts his son’s chances of rising to the stage to pick up where his dad left off.

    I agree with the guy who said it’s a Mormon thing. I remember 4 years ago when he was pretty much off the air to go and run around with Romney. I don’t believe a word he says about not knowing who to vote for, etc…. He knows a Bachman or Santorum surge is pretty much out because of the time involved. Who else would benefit other than Romney? He’s a complete sell out and just like a Muslim is able to lie to further the cause, I bet he’s gotten permission from the higherups in SLC. I agree with Breitbart, He’s dead to me.

  • The post on here are ridiculous. Ask this how did Obama win against McCain? Independents would be the answer. Which candidate will pull the most or if any? Ron Paul will. He also pulls Disenfranchised Democrats, Gold Bugs, Real Conservatives, Anti-War crowd, Libertarians, and Republican votes. Wow he beats Obama! Then we can have real cuts 1 Trillion the first year and balance the Budget in 3 Years. Sound money is a real nice thing too. Audit these to BIG Government Agencies. Everyone’s on the whole war thing though, If you think like that then the terrorist won.

      Obama won because he is a big fat liar and too many people believed him. It also helped a tremendous amount that the MSM covered for him and were cheerleaders for his campaign. They may have well been part of his campaign. For all practical purposes they were. That history cannot repeat itself. We know exactly who he is now.

      No it wouldn’t it doesn’t neuter him now. When he doesn’t get his way, like the EPA, he does it by Czars or executive order.

      Huh, keep it simple. Beck would rather have Paul as president than Gingrich.

  • If Ron Paul is not the nominee, Barak Obama will get another term, its just that simple. Ron Paul has a solid core of 20% even if people refuse to acknowledge that. Those supporters will not support Romney or Gingrich, or Bachmann or Santorum or any other status quo types. Period! The GOP cannot, will not win without Ron Paul support. If Ron Paul gets the GOP nomination, he will wipe the floor with Obama, and it will be a landslide, the likes of what Reagan did to Mondale.

    Take a look at this video. Molotov does a great job of explaining Ron Paul’s position of foreign policy. Unfortunately, Ron Paul is so intelligent, that he talks right over the heads of most people. Since they cant comprehend most of what he says, they think it is better to just think him a kook. Molotov does it much more layman. Take a look.

      My biggest problem with RP are his supporters, like you. You would rather give Obama a 2nd term than vote for GOP candidate.

      What does that say about you?

      • Last time we had a GOP favorite for president and a republican congress we got Medicare Part D, the Patriot Act, the TSA, and No Child Left Behind. All of this “anybody but Obama” talk is nonsense because the republican party has plenty of big government types.

        It says you don’t understand his point, that Newt and Mitt are no different than Obama. Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again. Perhaps you forget that before your duty to your party is your duty to America.

        Electing Newt is like an Obama 2nd and potentially 3rd term. Stop the corrupt carrousel of moral-less, power hungry suits. Elect someone who wants to return power to the People. Elect Ron Paul.

    wow, guys. I am voting for the nominee, effin’ period. The paulistas need not apply. Sorry folks, I’m not lookin’ forward to that ole crazy uncle or the soros cloan.

    Where the hell are good conservatives like Sara or Fred, dammit!! Fred is the major disappointment. Whatever happnd to, your Country needs you!

    We are undone if bam gets 4 more, regardless. Gridlock my arse.

    U guys better get you feces together!

  • Keep voting for the lessor of evils Republicans and you wonder why you keep getting evil? Less evil is still evil.

  • I agree, Paul is the right candidate with no baggage, no chance of cheating on his wife, a constant, and consistent candidate. Dr. No is the ideal candidate, though it will split the party just like Perot did and give it to Obozo.

    It’s now Ron Paul’s turn to rise to the top and the socialist media won’t have any dirt to expose.

  • I disagree with Ron Paul on foreign policy too, but I agree with him on everything else. Furthermore, I trust him not to flip-flop, so on the vast majority that we agree upon I am sure he would defend (2nd Amendment, actually cutting the budget, going after the Fed, etc.) Our economy has one more chance at recovery, and only Ron Paul will do it.

    Vote Ron Paul!

  • Anonymous

    I disagree…This is exactly the kind of thinking that has kept us enslaved to the one-party system (1-party with the illusion of 2-party). “We can’t let THEM win, so sure I’ll vote for a creep that doesn’t stand for what I stand for, just as long as THEY don’t win” We should not vote for a PARTY, but for a man/woman who is virtuous, honest, upright, and represents the kind of ideas and values that we hold dear. I may no agree with everything Ron Paul says, I do believe that he fits the list I just gave better than ANYONE from either party that I have seen in years, so I don’t care who wins the Republican primary, I will vote for Ron Paul.

    • “We can’t let THEM win, so sure I’ll vote for a creep that doesn’t stand for what I stand for, just as long as THEY don’t win”

      More like, “A choice between a Marxist agitator, a Chamberlain-esque libertarian appeaser, and a semi-conservative who nevertheless opposes Marixism, and who recognizes Iran for the state sponsor of terrorism that it is, really is no choice at all.”

      Thanks to the first kind of “leader,” we have radical Muslim factions spreading into positions of power that had previously held them at bay. Presumably, based on what he’s said about Iran (for example), the second kind of “leader” would be just fine with that, i.e. having adherents to radical Islam in the highest seats of control and influence in a politically and economically critical region of the world. After all, if we just extend an olive branch and leave the Middle East, then maybe they’ll denounce the edicts of their own religion and see America in a whole new light, right after they finish torching Israel.

      To people who aspire to intellectual steadfastness and ideological purity, I can see the appeal of Ron Paul. Like leftists, they’re sure that their way is the One True Way, despite the many historical and contemporary examples of the failures of socialism and giving a demonstrably despotic regime the benefit of the doubt.

  • If enough people vote for a third party, the third party can win. Voting for the lesser of two evils has our great country on the verge of collapse. We need a real reformer to cleanse Washington of these dirty traitors that become wealthy at our expense. We can just as easily say “if Paul runs as a third party and we don’t vote for Paul, we are giving the election to the same establishment.” Wake up America and prove that you are individuals, free from media manipulation ,before every ounce of individuality is taking from us by force.”

  • Anonymous

    I used to feel the same way as Beck. All the candidates are a joke (especially Gingrich who is the most dangerous). Even though I didn’t agree with Ron Paul’s foreign policy, we’re going to be broke and unable to defend ourselves anyway with the course we’re on.

    But something happens when you commit to supporting someone. You actually listen closely to what they’re saying. Ron Paul’s foreign policy is not crazy at all and would actually keep us SAFER. Even before 9/11 we’ve been intervening in these Middle East dustbowls, which is equivalent to poking a hornets nest. We need to stop poking the hornet’s nest, get out of there, and stop being the policemen of the world. We can’t afford it anymore anyway! This is a pure conservative position.

  • Anonymous

    You presume that Ron Paul would only split the republican vote, which is flatly untrue. Every poll shows that at the most, 20% of voters consider themselves liberals, these are the only people who will vote for Obama no matter what. Ron Paul easily appeals to a LOT of democrat and former democrat voters who do not identify themselves as such. As a 3rd party candidate he will draw heavily from both sides. Look at any poll, congress is LOATHED, only two parties in there, and Ron Paul is pointing out the obvious escape from the circular trap they created for the American voter.

      • you forgot this one too.

        OH NO!…..Gingrich and Pelosi co-sponsored a bill authorizing an award for Mother Teresa..

        Since you have blasted soo much so fast lets just take a look some that are just STUPID!

        First, many of your points are in fact trivial…. for example:
        05/17/2011 – He has an outstanding debt to Tiffany’s Jewelry of between $250K – $500K. …..SO WHAT! Its his money…are you saying he cannot spend his money??
        06/09/2011 – His own campaign staff resigned en masse.
        That’s right….his campaign at the time was running out of money and count not pay for staff.

        Some are miss-truths
        10/07/2011 – He said he’d ignore the Supreme Court if need be. —in fact Newt stated he would follow the constitution in asserting he would follow the path laid down by Thomas Jefferson as to overrulling the Supreme Court if it overstepped its authority. So are you saying obeying the Constitution is bad??

        03/25/2011 – He plans to sign as many as 200 executive orders on his first day as president.—-finish the sentence….and it is within the first 2 hours he said because these orders would FIRE the Unconstitutional Czars and resend up to 40% of all the executive orders signed by Obama. WHAT IS WRONG WITH THAT???

        Lastly, many are just lies and distortions.
        for example:

        12/08/2008 – He was paid $300,000 by Freddie Mac to halt Congress from bringing necessary reform. That is false. He was hired to give consulting advise as to how to interpret Dodd-Frank and he told them it was crazy and causing a bubble and showed them ways to stop insolvence. In other words he was giving advise as to how not to create the bubble and stop the housing market from imploding. They did not follow his advice and look what happened…the housing market collapsed.

        or
        05/15/2011 – He backed Obama’s individual mandate; “All of us have a responsibility to help pay for health care.” That is a lie and distortion of the truth. He is against ObamaCare and has committed to repealing it.

        04/17/2008 – Made a commercial with Nancy Pelosi on Climate Change. Yep…he did that but it was to promote that Conservatives are for making a better planet and it is not just owned by the DemocRATic. Also, it must be noted Gingrich has always been against Cap and Trade which is the cover for climate change legislation.

        Overall, you have just cut and pasted smear from some website and did not research the total facts. I am sure I could destroy most all your points but since you are an obvious Paulbot you are not worth the time.

        So as I said before, get your facts straight.

        • LOL you think the housing market collapsed because nobody listened to Newt coming out in 2008 with advice he probably copied from Ron Paul? The bubble was forming since 2001 and was predicted by Ron Paul at that time. LOL, housing bubble collapsed in Dec 2008, what a damn joke.

          • no. my point is even Newt advised against it.

        • Gingrich is a lying, immoral, sovereignty shredding piece of CFR trash. You can try to deny it and twist the facts, but it’s oh so obvious. He will not win in Iowa or New Hampshire, and he sure as hell isn’t going to win the nomination.

          Here, debunk his voting record. *chuckles*

          http://speakup-usa.com/?p=2445

    • Dude….get your facts straight. your half truths are false and misleading. what ever kooky website you cut and pasted from is distorting the truth.

      P.S. this is the second post you have made saying the same thing. please stop with the cut and paste smear.

      • what about his post was misleading? any specifics?

  • Beck has lost it, makes you wonder if he wants Obama to have another term so he has something to speak about the next 4 years with this garbage he is spewing lately. Not even sure what to say.

    Beck lost me.

  • A tree is known by it’s fruit. What has Newt done? What has Ron Paul done? Which one is actually Republican?

  • comicalcupcake

    I can see why he would do that. I plan to do the same. If Republicans are just as bad as the Democrats, who is there left to vote for? What good does it do to have a Republican president? A Gingrich presidency would do more harm to the party than a second Obama term. Harm to the party is harm to the country if there is nobody left to stand for what is good. And if everyone voted for those who they truly thought were the best, rather than those who they thought had a chance of winning, we would get good guys and gals in office more often.

    That’s because, Glenn, you’re not thinking past your “third-party” folly. Obama will finish off this country by appointing more leftists on the Supreme Court and the district and appeals courts where the left likes to play. The courts are where leftist policies go to live or die. Apparently by suggesting a run by a for-sure loser spoiler (John Anderson, Ross Perot anyone?) Obama will get his wish.

  • Although I’m a hardcore conservative, I’ve never had much use for Glenn Beck — not because I’ve never liked him, but because he’s never offered me anything that I wasn’t already getting from my go-to intellectuals and media folks (Sowell, Friedman, Limbaugh, Levin, Coulter, Krauthammer, O’Reilly, et al.).

    After this, he is on my radar as a dangerous loose cannon. If he’s playing with the idea of going third party, fine, more power to him, but stating so publicly at a time like this is just alarmingly dangerous. Talk about your consternation.

    Shut your pie hole, Glenn!

    PJ Fusco on the News (PJFusco dot com) has a piece today entitled “Drivel, More Drivel, Obamadrivel.” If Glenn Beck, who I like most of the time, can read that article and come away wanting a third party candidate so as to virtually guarantee another four years of this disaster, then he should be tarred and feathered.

    Obama: corrupt warmed over version of Bush.
    Gingrich: corrupt warmed over version of Bush.
    Ron Paul: principled conservative dedicated to putting America AND its constitution back on the track.

    If Paul runs third party, I’m voting for Paul on the third party ticket! This is a no brainer. The reason some other posters say they would hold their nose and vote for Gingrich is because they know the average American voter doesn’t know squat about current affairs and American interests. All they know is what political gang they identify with. Sad. Either vote for Ron Paul or get ready for another four years of the Obama-nation.

  • The idea of Republicans getting mad about voting for anyone but whom they nominate is simply insulting. We have lived with the notion that Republicans have been conservatives and small government for generations, when in fact they were just Democrat-lite. The Republicans didn’t learn their lesson when they nominated McCain and we got stuck with Obama. It is true that another 4 years of Obama would destroy this country, but voting for 4 years of Gingrich or Romney is equally disturbing. I for one, will not throw my vote carelessly at any candidate just because the establishment tells me to. Nominate someone worth while and I’ll vote for him. Otherwise, I will look somewhere else. My principles are not compromising. Every American (Tea Partier or other) should have this mentality. Isn’t the approach Mike Savage taking what got us into this mess? Just a disgrace how Republicans think their constituents are just dumb Americans.

  • I wouldn’t vote for Newt if my life depended on it. I love my country too much.

  • The author claims that Newt will be better than Obama…yeah right. Both are big government progressives and Gingrich will not be a noticable improvement over Obama. Its not coincidence that they both talked about Theodore Roosevelt as their insipiration on the same day.

    I don’t think that his reasoning is wrong at all. If Newt gets the nomination Obama will be elected, no doubt. In that event I want my vote to mean something.

    In 2008 I was prepared to write in a vote rather than to vote for either Obama or McCain – who was bound to lose from the get go. When Palin was added to the ticket then I felt justified in voting Republican in an attempt to help make the vote less of a landslide. I still felt sick doing it.

    If Gingrich gets the nomination then we might as well forget about the Republican party and start a new party. If Republicans aren’t going to nominate a truly inspiring conservative with real ideas and a real track record then they better at least nominate someone who shares most of the same values, including the most important ones – and can win.

    Gingrich’s track record is spotty at best, regardless of what you try and talk yourselves into, and he has no chance to win.

    But I’m still not going to vote for Ron Paul.

  • Well, Glenn Beck has shoe assuring an Obama re-election.n what an arrogant jerk he really is.
    He preaches that we HAVE to get Obama out, not matter what, and yet will vote for Ron Paul, of all people instead of the Republican nominee, if it’s Newt., there bye assuring an Obama re-election.
    I’m afraid that Mr. Beck has over estimated his importance in the lives of most Americans.
    I don’t particularly care for Newt myself, but I believe that most Republicans will vote for whoever is the nominee to get Obama out.

    Too bad Beck stands on his “moral convictions”.
    I suspect that he will soon grow tired of Texas also, because Texans will get sick and tired of his “all about me” BS.

    “This is suicide and it doesn’t get any simpler this: voting third party on our side for whomever guarantees Obama a victory. That’s it.”

    Sir, you are likely correct on your first sentence. But there is more to it. In 2000, Al Gore would have won had it not been for Nader. As a result, the Democrats have swung far to the left.

    If Paul siphons off enough of the conservative vote to cause the Republicans to lose, you can bet the same situation will occur in 2016. Conservatives will have shown the Republican establishment that they can’t be taken for granted.

    I would add that right now, Obama is largely neutralized as the Republicans hold the house. If Republicans take the Senate too, Obama would be nothing more than a pathetic object lesson in why the left is bad.

    Paul has 16% of the primary vote, best case, right now. So in the general he’d have about . . . 8%. He’ll lose as a 3rd party candidate. He’ll probably help Obama get re-elected though.

    Paul should use his power to help the country not hurt it.

    Beck is being an idiot here.

      thats retard math.. Ron Paul has 20% right now.. If hes the nominee, unless republicans are going to vote for Obama, he’ll have 50%. Plus he picks up 5-10% of the democrats, and 10% of the 60% of people who dont vote.. so thats ron paul 60-70%

        Your grammar is atrocious. For example, a period has one dot, an ellipse has 3 dots. No punctuation mark has 2 dots. “He’s” has an apostrophe. “Republicans” is capitalized. Etc.

        Your logic is also flawed. Republicans could also choose to vote for the Republican nominee over a Paul third party run, or to not vote at all. You are just making up numbers and percents. Reagan didn’t get 60% for his re-election but you expect Ron Paul to get 60% to 70% with a third party run.

    Beck is a HUGE liability to conservatism. His #1 goal has ALWAYS been to promote the Mormon Church, not conservativism. Nothing wrong wtih his Mormonism, but he kept it under wraps for his first 2 years on radio. Beck’s end-game is to be the spokesman for a populast Mormon movement.

  • Ron Paul rises above the dogma of left vs. right because he knows that there is no difference between the left and the right. The majority of the people posting here refuse to understand that Gingrich (like Bush) is not significantly different than Obama. Just look at his record. We will be going down the same road as we did in 2008 with McCain. I’m not saying Gingrich will lose to Obama, but you can count on the endless spending, wars, and the status quo to continue.

    Anyone care to point out the differences between Obama, Gingrich, and Romney? I sure as hell can’t find any.

    They all agree on foreign policy – drop bombs first, damn the innocent, and deny that those actions actually create more enemies.

    They all agree on monetary policy – create money out of thin air, keep spending like drunken sailors, no real cuts of any kind.

    They all agree on civil liberties – MOAR PATRIOT ACT! MOAR TSA!

    They all agree that government belongs in your life as much as possible, as an extension of your family.

    What exactly is the difference? People keep saying “Anyone but Obama!”, but the so-called “mainstream, acceptable choices” offer nothing but more of the same.

    Ron Paul is the only candidate that will stick to the constitution (you remember, that supreme law of the land thingy we all learned about in school?). People are beaten over the head, day after day after day after day, that the only acceptable political positions must fall somewhere in between Joe Biden and Mitt Romney. Well, sorry, but that just seems like a mechanism for control.

    Dr. Ron Paul is the only clear, distinct candidate with substantive differences from ANY candidate running for the Presidency this term.

If there’s a person that’s capitalized and made a fortune on fear-mongering, it’s him. I’ll vote for Newt or Mitt or Mr. Ed if he gets the RNP nomination. I suggest everyone else do the same. Hopefully Ron Paul doesn’t pull a Ross Perot and hand the election to the socialists. It’s going to be hard enough, as it is, to win against the massive voter-fraud the left will commit.

    • As an Independent, Paul would get many many votes from the left with his stance on no nation building, closing most of our bases and ending the insane War on Drugs.

    • I think that is the same mentality that got us Obama, people were and still are sick of the GOP. Keep it up with all of the divisions based on political parties as if it matters. Newt, Romney, and Obama are all the same, more big government and wasteful spending.

    if he didn’t want Gingrich to get the nomination, he should have been nicer to Cain. I like Santorum, but I don’t think he can win the independents. I think Michelle Bachman plays political games too much. I don’t trust if she is saying something because it true or because it will benefit her campaign. Recently Ive been agreeing with Newt a whole bunch. I believe he is saying the truth.

  • Y’know, it never ceases to amaze me how some people work. First, Beck was whining about how much of a white-hating racist Obama is, which I do not deny. He’s not the only one that’s made mention of this, or some allegation, but Beck is the one that squawked the loudest. Ron Paul’s racism, however, he apparently doesn’t seem to care about. Neither does Sean Hannity, or even Mark Levin (and let’s not forget the fact that Rumpelstiltskin hates Jews as much as Obama does). I’m tired of their softball, paddy-cake bullcrap. He has no problem farting out over the airwaves how he’ll vote for this Storm Front lover, but has a problem with Gingrich taking the same route. I’m not Gingrich booster (I despise him, as much as I do McCain, or even Obama), but this is just a sack of crap. Mark Levin said, quite a while ago, that he’d had enough of Beck, because of his intention efforts to destroy the Republican electorate base through his “third” party horse sh*t. Surely, someone that’s as smart as Beck seems to think he is should know what effect splitting the vote will have in elections, yet he doesn’t seem to care. All he wants his his sorry liberaltarian party to take power, and damn what happens to anybody else. Screw Beck. I’ll never listen to his stupid show, ever again.

    So we should vote for a “republican” that supports progressive policy because we’re afraid of a “progressive” that supports fascism?

    Yeesh, some of these comments are just absurd. mascmen7 needs to be committed to a mental health facility. As a true Reagan conservative who worked for Reagan for 12 years, here is what will happen. If Gingrich gets the nomination he will lose big to Obama. If Romney wins the nomination, he will beat Obama. Gingrich has always been in it for Gingrich. He has no idea of “public service”. He is a fraud and any “conservative” that votes for him should be punished by having to watch MSNBC 24/7 until 2016. how can you newt supporters be so stupid? You really think we can erase the last 15 years from the collective memory? The MSM already is in lockstep with Obama. All they need is a Newt to remind voters that the man is a greedy, dishonest bastard. Shame on all of you for throwing away the opportunity to get rid of Obama. I detest you all.

    • and I detest people that detest me for thinking on my own. Me thinks YOU are an obama plant.

  • This perspective assumes that the GOP alternatives to Ron Paul are *real* conservatives or *real* republicans. That view is rejected by Ron Paul supporters and by the party itself. I can hardly imagine why a real conservative would bail ship onto a Gingrich or Romney candidacy where big spending will reign, the US will strengthen its entangling alliances and big corporations will continue to suck life out of the taxpayers.

    I think most Ron Paul supporters would not vote for the GOP candidate if it’s not Ron Paul because they see him as the only candidate that is actually sticking to conservative principles (or principles at all) and they’re most likely right.

    I don’t think the GOP deserves to win by sticking another corporate shill up there. I’ll gladly crash the GOP into the ground if it means sticking up for something real.

    The comparison of Ron Paul 3rd party involving Obama and any other GOP (selected fall guy), to Bush1-Clinton-Perot, is on its face = ridiculous. Why you might ask? The predominate majority of the country did not hate/fear Clinton! There is absolutely no comparison in this election, to the Perot assured Clinton parady. The mostly emotional, war mongering GOP voter will fall for this scam, sad as this is.

    Voting for party rather than principle is why we’re here with the candidates we have. Refusing to hold out for someone who actually represents your values is a terrible reason to throw principle aside. As if there is one iota of difference between the statist Gingrich and the statist Obama.

  • Much more information was disseminated by Beck the last few months that just this one video commentary. Gingrich continues to SPIN his positions with extensive babble while NOT answering hard questions. I heard the interview with Beck. I heard nothing but walk around responses. Gingrich’s recent history of coddling Nancy Pelosi and receiving large sums of money from Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac make me firmly believe he is nothing more than a Big Government phony. He’ll say anything to make money and create controversy to bring more attention to himself for profit. GINGRICH WAS ONE OF THE FIRST REPUBLICANS TO DECLARE… “THE ERA OF REAGAN IS OVER” documented here: http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2008/01/14/the_era_of_reagan_is_not_over Yet Gingrich calls himself a Reagan Conservative? Oh really?

  • Show me how Newt is really much different than Obama. Not in word but in deed and I’ll consider your point of view. My own investigation tells me that Newt and Obama are ideologically the same. If the gop puts another progressive up against Obama, they deserve to loose. Otherwise thay will never change.

  • AN APPEAL TO ALL AMERICANS

    When looking at the real economic numbers and the cost effect results of our foreign policy closely, one can only conclude that we have become a welfare/warfare state that has already entered into a Depression, while heading towards ever more endless wars, complete bankruptcy, and the collapse of an America which we have known for more than two centuries.

    There are far more of us than those who represent the special interest group financed establishment which continues to benefit from all of the above at the expense of average Americans. Most of us can at least sense that something is drastically wrong yet we remain on our path to self-destruction if we allow status quo politicians with status quo policies to continue on.

    Whether you are a member of the Tea Party, OWS, any other group, or simply a disenfranchised individual who sees little hope, please look up, learn about, and help Ron Paul become president anyway you can. The only way we lose is if we continue to remain divided.

    Had we voted Ron Paul into office in 2008 we would at this time be well on our way to recovering the American dream. Fortunately it looks like we have one more chance to get it right. It’s probably our last chance, however, because within four years of continued status quo leadership and policies we will find ourselves in the midst of a full scale Depression and all the turmoil that it brings.

    Even if you disagree with Ron Paul on a position or two please don’t let that stop you from supporting him. Even in such a situation consider if Ron Paul won’t get you 80% of what you want while getting the country back on track to recovery. At such time it will be easier to argue about the 20% that is missing than under present status quo leadership. If we were to all wait for a candidate that gives us 100% of what we want then we will remain divided and there will be no hope.

    During this critical time in history let’s come together as a country to show that we as a people can overcome the special interest group financed status quo candidates to support and vote Ron Paul into office in 2012 so that we and our children have a better future. Please pass this on to everyone you know.

Vote Paul in the Republican primaries or its over for any chance to beat Obama this election. That’s just a hard cold fact.

    If 2008, I wrote in my dog for president rather than vote for Obama or McCain. If any of the current GOP, other than Ron Paul, wins the nomination, I will do the same in 2012. I’ve been voting for a long time. I’m fed up with the phony left-right charade that is played out every four years, as government growth and intrusiveness continues to escalate no matter who is in the White House.

  • You did so much good while you were sober, too bad you’re back on the sauce.

  • Ron Paul isn’t “the lesser of two evils,” he isn’t an alternative to the lesser of two evils, he is one of the two evils–he and Obama.

    Any man who can look the camera in the eye and blame America for 9/11, any man who can look the camera in the eye and claim that Iran has a right to become a nuclear power, any man who can look the camera in the eye and say that if would be preferable for Israel to use its nuclear weapons against its enemies than for America to become entangled in the ME, is a greater threat to our economic and political survival than Obama.

    Any man who can draw moral equivalence between Israel and her surrounding neighbors is not only a nutjob, but a man without any moral compass. Which, by the way, has been apparent in his unwillingness to reject the support of groups like Stormfront and his refusal to reject the antisemitism that is so evident in some of his followers.

    Paul is ignorant, naive to the point of being dangerous, intellectually dishonest, hypocritical to an extent that makes his advertisement against Newt laughable.

    For Glenn Beck to straight-faced make the statement he has made tells me that he has finally reached the level of insanity he has long been headed towards. The crying, the histrionics, the self-aggrandizement; Beck has reached Obama’s level of narcissism and self-deception.

    No Thanks! Glenn. We can make our own minds up without your looney guidance. You and Paul are two loons of a kind.

    • I guess opening up any book on US foreign policy prior to the year 2001 is blaming America for 9/11 right?

    You republican ideologues are just dense. Ron Paul is the only candidate that can beat Obama. If Paul is not the nominee all his supporters will either not show up, write him in, or vote for a third party. The republican leadership is nothing but trash, they are no different than the democratic leadership. A large percentage of former republicans will not vote for any of these clowns. We are not the black population that will vote for their democratic masters no matter how little they do for the black population. We have asked for results for three decades and gotten nothing but lies. Now we have McCain the Nazi passing laws to destroy due process, Boener accepting an extension of the payroll tax cut. We are not republicans anymore. You will not get our votes. So either stop ignoring Paul and Johnson or accept Obama again. The choice is yours to make, a government that represents the people or Obama for four more years.

Newt is a big government, Chicago-style, enviro-mystic scum bag who will trade off a few of Obama’s interventionist policies for many of his own.

    Ron Paul is way down the list of Republican candidates I would vote for in a primary. But if Paul does win the nomination I would vote for Ron Paul over Obama. The same goes with any of the other republican candidates.

    Mr. Beck’s pushing a third party run by Ron Paul (or any other serious republican candidate) is an endorsement for Mr. Obama.

    I think Mr. Beck has “jumped the shark”.

  • Many of you keep talking about Ron Paul being a 3rd party candidate, but he’s now polling 2nd in Iowa as a republican. A few more weeks of people speaking up about Newt, then there’s time for Ron Paul to conceivably win Iowa.

    Shame on Beck. If he wants Romney just come out and say it but to encourage third party voting is a waste and makes him look like a lying petulant fool. After all his talk about Israel and solidarity to even entertain Ron Paul is embarrassing to say the least. And I agree about Santorum.

Wouldn’t that, in the process of defeating Newt the wife-cheater “they” don’t like, in fact get obama THE RADICAL MARXIST AGITATING CHARLATAN elected??!!! Who are these people dividing us now that we have a real chance of defeating the miserable destroyer???? I don’t get it. Newt might not be the epitome of marital virtues, but FOR GOD”S SAKE, our country and our future is in an historic life and death condition right now and we are trying to unify our cause, and divide up the enemies of our cause, and to elect the most conservative president we can muster after 4 years of obamanation and destruction of the very fiber of this country. D**m all those who are doing this wicked deed. They are NOT OF US. They are charlatans and they work for the enemy; they ARE the enemy.

    For those who think Ron Paul’s foreign policy is crazy- look up the donation $ from active members of the military. Ron Paul has received more than all the other candidates COMBINED. The members of the military I know have told me directly that all we are doing is throwing money away and accomplishing nothing in terms of promoting liberty and creating a climate of benevolence towards the US. And don’t tell me we need to be in the Middle East to secure our energy interests- who has more to lose than Saudi Arabia if they can’t figure out a way to ship oil to the US?

I happened to hear him asserting that he’d vote for Paul today on the radio and my tolerance for him has just vanished permanently. He has more than just jumped the shark – he has spun off into the stratosphere and totally lost whatever credibility he had. In his zeal for GOP purity, which likely only exists in his head, he risks another Obama term by backing Paul. Beck has become what he has decried in other people who dabble in fringe political beliefs. The goal remains to get Obama out of the White House via whomever is the GOP nominee and it’s obvious now that Beck has lost sight of the big picture.

  • Reuben Alarcon

    I hate to agree with guys like Jon Stewart and Bill Maher, but it has become apparent to me that Glenn Beck has become a joke and makes all “anti-liberals” look bad. I say “anti-liberal,” by the way, because I think he’s trying to pose as a conservative, though he calls himself a libertarian, which is basically a liberal with a lot more common sense, but nonetheless a liberal. Anyway, any grown man that considers himself relatively informed, but supports Ron Paul after hearing his stance on foreign affairs (10 years after 9/11) is foolish, narrow-minded, and no better than the idiots that were hypotized by the Pied Piper, Barrack Obama. Ron Paul is a Republican Jimmy Carter; a timid, soft, scholar that doesn’t like government; the only trait of his that I admire. A Ron Paul presidency would be a complete disaster; imagine Ron Paul negotiating with Ahmedinejad when he has his finger on the trigger of a nuclear weapon aimed at Israel or with Kim Jong-Il when he sends 250,000 troops down to Seoul and confiscates hundreds of billions of dollars in American assets and demands 5 Trillion dollars or he’ll launch a gas attack onto San Francisco. Gingrich is BY FAR, the best candidate in this field. The real all-stars ARE NOT RUNNING! GET OVER IT! Anyway, Gingrich was actually WAAAAAY too conservative and radical back in the 1990s for the Republican party at that time and THAT is why they rained that sh*t storm on him that ruined his reputation. I, for one, will not be played as a fool like you Ron Paul supporters. You guys are taking Obama’s bait. He cringes at the idea of running against that fat, old, white sledgehammer Newt Gingrich.

          You are totally wrong on Ron Paul’s platform.

          “I hate Israel” – wrong, he believes Israel should make it’s own decisions and not be our puppet. Cut aid to Israel’s enemies.

          “Let’s legalize drugs, prostitution, homosexual marriage” – wrong, he believes the Federal government had no jurisdiction and decisions such as these should be left to the states

          “9/11 was an inside job” – wrong, where do you get your information from? He’s never even come *close* to saying anything like that.

          “blame america first” – wrong, he simply understands that when we wage war, we may get retaliation. This concept is proven, common sense. His argument is that our foreign policy over the last few decades contributes to the hatred that motivates terrorists. If you disagree with that, go pick up any history textbook.

          Ron Paul’s war policy is a constitutional policy. If the congress declares war, go all in, finish the job, and come home. Don’t nation-build.

    If you are a Republican, Conservative or if you love America ……voting for Gingrich a man drom the Richard Nixon era (yes that’s true) will assure an Obama victory.

    Obama will be defeated if all Republicans will vote for Ron Paul (pro-constitution and pro-individual American liberty and prosperity).

  • Newt IS my guy, and I believe he’s the one who will beat Obama. Romney, I’m not a fan, and I’m quite familiar with him, him having been my governor. When I see the mainstream media apparently trying to protect Romney’s status as the eventual nominee, it only confirms my suspicians that the left is ready for Romney and will move to destroy him once he gets the nomination.

    Newt is fricken brilliant, and can talk off the top of his head on just about any subject under the son, unlike Romney who sticks to memorized talking points, and gets noticably uncomfortable when anyone presses him, even on matters that he should be entirely ready for. Newt has a history of enacting broad, historic change in Washington, and will do so again.

    Obviously Beck doesn’t speak for the republican party, but party insiders had better be cautious as to how they go about trying to dismantle Newt. Right now the objective is to get rid of Obama, but if the party continues to treat the Tea Party elements like a whacko fringe, they risk a conservative third party in 2014, especially if/when they put up another loser and get Obama reelected.

    • Gingrich wrote the foreword for the book “Creating a New Civilization: The Politics of the Third Wave” by Alvin and Heidi Toffler where he espouses world government and a vision for America as a post-industrial police state.

      FRAUD.

      Say NO to the Newt World Order.

      Support Ron Paul and help restore the Republic.

      • Garett, so you are against someone who says…“Society needs people who take care of the elderly and who know how to be compassionate and honest. Society needs people who work in hospitals. Society needs all kinds of skills that are not just cognitive; they’re emotional, they’re affectional. You can’t run the society on data and computers alone.” …..Toffler is also frequently cited as stating: “Tomorrow’s illiterate will not be the man who can’t read; he will be the man who has not learned how to learn.”

        Lastly, no, your assetrion that Toffler is advocating a police state is, in fact, not what Toffler is advocating. So get your facts straight!

        • The FACT is that it is all futurist garbage. My 5 year old could read that and explain it. Unfortunately you appear to suffer from invincible ignorance so I’ll move on.

          • apparently you are too shallow to have actually done any research.

            • So you deny he is a futurist or that its garbage? Newt and the Tofflers proudly confess it so I’ll assume its not the former.

    • puma_for_life

      When I considered myself a progressive, I had many of the same beliefs about foreign policy that he has. I would think he would get votes from progressives who agree with him on that stuff. I wish he didn’t come across as so looney at times as he is correct on many domestic issues. I have some friends who are former Dems (Hillary supporters) who really like Paul and will vote for him if he gets on the ballot.

    Sorry but Newt-Romney is not conservative. They waste so much time just explaining away the rather fuzzy inconsistencies records when there are conservative in this race that don’t have to. I just don’t see independents really getting behind either of these guys because they cant differentiate between each other let alone Obama.

    • Hey StupidVoter….does that mean your calling Rick Santorum a liar?

  • And now I see why even Fox News was considered too “liberal” for someone like Glen Beck. I’m wondering if it’s because Mitt Romney is a Mormon and that Gingrich became a Catholic (and Glen left Catholicism and became Mormon) if after all the supposed anti-Mormon attitudes, we’re seeing the ugly Anti-Catholic rhetoric come to light. For me, I’d be happy with any of the candidates on stage Saturday Night (including Ron Paul) over Obama.

    • You’re no better than the libs who play the race the card every time somebody criticizes Obama.

  • newt is not perfect, but neither is obamney or the coward, Ron Paul. Newt isn’t everything I want in a candidate, but he’s a lot better than Mutt Romney or anyone else still in the race. Newt is NOT the establishment guy, but he would trounce Obama in any debate regarding any subject, and many minds are made up based on these debate performances.

  • Sorry for the double-post.

  • Newt Gingrich and Barack Obama are hardly any different when it comes to policy. Glenn Beck has suggested the only element that could motivate someone to vote for Gingrich over Obama is the candidate’s race, and I’m starting to believe that might be true. Gingrich supports a healthcare plan which is essentially Obamacare, raising taxes on the rich, cap and trade programs, amnesty for illegal immigrants, and the list goes on. Honestly, I can’t understand how you could even consider voting for this man if you call yourself a conservative.

    • Hey Dave (if that is your real name), repeating something over and over doesn’t make it any more true. Newt actively worked to stop Cap and Trade, and his position on immigration is not amnesty. The candidates who allude (they have no practical plan) that they will deport 10 million illegals during their first year in office will NEVER do anything that resembles such an exodus. They are lying by omission. The part they omit is the actual plan and army of ICE personnel required.

      • Maybe you’re right that misinformation is the real culprit in Gingrich’s popularity. For example, you state that Newt worked to stop cap and trade, when in fact he said as recently as 2007 in a PBS interview that he supports a cap and trade system. Hopefully as time goes on people will start to become informed on Newt’s positions and work to support a real conservative candidate in 2012.

    “If you’ve been Speaker of the House, you’re always an insider.”
    — Newt Gingrich in this hard hitting Ron Paul TV ad —

    http://youtu.be/hRdqGKA782A

  • The GOP has a Ron Paul problem that’s not going away. It’s suffered from idealogical creep that makes it no longer conservative. They abandoned the old right platform of “non-interventionism” and labeled it “isolationism”.

    They deserve whatever grief comes their way. I have no bad feelings about voting for a true conservative. Ron Paul or not at all-2012.

    • “non-interventionism” is what led to millions of dead, higher taxes, and the industrial military complex during WWII.

      Pres Bush, with his pro interventionism, would have had us across the Rhine and into Nazi Germany as soon as Hitler invaded Austria. War would have been over in one year.

      Keep touting your Neville Chamberlain policies…and just see if you don’t get another Nazi Germany.

      • You are referencing something that no longer is valid with the advent of the atomic bomb. And it wasn’t non intervention that lead to WW2, it was the global establishment that funded Hitler so he could build his blitzkreeg military. And it is the same establishment that is running the U.S right now. Nice try but your argument is flawed.

      • Actually, had the US not intervened in World War I, a peace deal would have been brokered by the powers involved that would have been much more fair to Germany, and the conditions that lead to Hitler’s rise would never have been present. Believe it or not, a little bit of history goes a long way in understanding how to implement a sensible foreign policy like Ron Paul advocates.

    • Jonathan Zaffke

      Isolationism? Isolationists do not trade with other countries. Isolationists do not allow their congress to declare war. Ron Paul simply wants to end the welfare state for foreign countries and ease up on the sanctions. His opposition to these wars is that congress did not approve of them. Ron Paul has stated that he would go to war if their was congressional approval. He is by no means, an isolationist. These are the facts.

      http://slander.revolutioni.st/isolationist.html

      DO some research, you guys claim to hold the truth, but you spread lies. I don’t understand it. What has happened to the GOP? What has happened to following the constitution? Ron Paul is here to protect our rights as human beings, to accept our own responsibility, to lessen the powers of the government. Freedom, peace, prosperity.

    I actually like Glenn Beck, but lately his outbursts and ranting about Newt is annoying and possibly damaging to our country. He needs to realize that it’s the candidate’s responsibility to get their name and message out there and do well in the polls and if they don’t, he shouldn’t be their vehicle to do it at this late in the gam., Especially by bashing and tearing down the other candidates just to pump up his choice. FYI…..I voted for Michelle Bachmann in the straw poll but she has since been very negative and spouting off several untruths regarding other candidates. Glenn and others……we need to get this man out of office and all you’re doing is encouraging 3rd party and/or voters to just stay home. There’s NO perfect candidate! Stop the garbage of dividing the party and let the primaries play out. When the chips fall I will enthusiastically support whomever the nominee is. Will you?…….or will you ensure BO’s 2nd term?

  • 3dollarbillcatcher

    Well, I was just wondering when Glenn Beck’s Mormon loyalty would expose itself. He’s been so quiet about any negatives on the part of Mitt Romney. Pay attention everyone. Glenn (God lives on Kolab with his sons Jesus and Lucifer) Beck is totally in the bag for Mitt Romney. I have observed as he mildly uses his TV show, radio show, and website to slowly help discredit all other candidates. He would pick Ron Paul. Really. Glenn called Ron Paul ‘The Sheriff of Crazy Town’. Ever heard any negatives at all like that regarding Mitt Romney from Glenn??? Not one. Just mild questions. Pay attention everyone. The war is not over truth versus lies. It’s over Truth versus “Almost Truth”. “Almost Truth” is home territory for Mr. Beck. Pay attention.

  • I’ve cancelled my GBTV and have turned Beck off my radio. A third party means 4 more years of Obama. Obama is the most destructive force in my lifetime. Glenn is a big baby …whaaaaaaaaa

  • Bunghole Stench

    I’m with you. I’m not a huge Beck listener, but now I know that he’s not a serious radio personality.

  • Envy? Guillotine these enviousness talking heads.Let Mr. Newt succeed for fail my his own merits, let the chips fail where they may.

  • I agree with your take completely, and I’d lose faith in Beck over something like this… Newt would be light years ahead of Obama.

  • To even state or consider that is lunacy, utter lunacy. The Chicago street punk must be removed from office. Not voting for the republican nominee would most certainly give us 4 more years of the human wrecking ball. 4 more years of our liberty and freedom being lost. 4 more years of misery and pain. 4 more years of the destruction of our Civil Society. The country doesn’t have 4 more years of survival with him at it’s helm.

    What 2012 comes down to is a referendum on Obama. Simple as that. Any of the candidates(excluding Ron Paul) would be a damn site better than the marxist disaster that currently occupies the Oval office. Both Newt and Mitt have warts, but I refuse to believe that the majority of Americans would pass on either of them and settle for what would be the epilogue of this Republic, 4 more years of BHO.

  • Another thing that Im personally disgusted with is the complete lack of respect directed at someone for what they think. Somehow you better watch out if you are on the fringes even amongst the conservative crowd. Calling people kooks and nut jobs is very immature and displays a small mind trying to act big and silence all who disagree. Which is actually tyranny. This country was founded on debate and ideas being thrown around until there was a enough consensus w all involved. If you read about that time when those men were framing the constitution you see spirited sometimes heated debate while maintaining respect for the individual. Years later many did mention personal struggles but no one was ever shouted down or completely degraded by their peers

  • More proof that the GOP better get behind Ron Paul. If they don’t……he will split the electorate. Like it or not. IF THE REPUBLICANS WANT TO BEAT BARACK OBAMA………..get behind Ron Paul. He will steal many Democratic and Independent votes in a 1 on 1 and that’s something none of the other candidates can capture.

    Beck is a psychologically disturbed, grandiose, destructive, flamboyant little ponce. He jumped out of a perfectly good religion (Catholic – I was raised that, but I’m now secularist) to become a Mormon — and talks about a spiritual revival being necessary for the nation to escape the current political threat posed by Obama’s regime. His utterly stupid third-party flirtations don’t surprise me. There are no melodramatic flourishes too ridiculous for this nut.

    Amen to that. Anyone voting third party will be aiding and abetting Obama. I don’t like Newt’s view on global warming and the fact he took money, our money, from
    Freddie Mac, but he is so much more conservative than Obama and knows the Constitution and respects it unlike our illustrious president. So if anyone out there is thinking of running or voting third party, you will be considered working for Obama.

  • You failed to mention that Romney is also like Obama. The three are minor shades of political grey….all three would do a good job of carrying on Bush’s 4th term.

  • Really, Glenn? You went to Israel to stand with them, now you’re ready to betray them with a vote for Paul? IF you do this, I will never trust you again. Never.

    You cannot separate a person from their world view. If Glenn Beck is willing to vote for Ron Paul then he will get Ron Paul’s policy on the middle east as well as his policy on other troubled areas of the world. The concern I have about people like Glenn Beck is that they are in search of the perfect solution and so they are seldom satisfied or right. Glenn Beck has moved from station to station and network to network and has become more and more fanatical in his view of the world. I watched and listened to him for years. However, I’ve dropped him because he no longer offers practical solutions to difficult problems. I’m a conservative, but not a religious conservative. I’m going to support whomever runs against Obama. The worst thing that can happen is for conservatives and independents to face the prospect of a three party Presidential election. Should this occur Obama might well win because the factions that support him will have no other place to go. This wouldn’t be true of Republicans and to a lesser degree independents. They will be divided between the Republican and third party. Glenn Beck doesn’t get my vote as a listener or viewer. He seems to have become the leader of a new TV evangelical movement that focuses on doom and who offers solutions that are as bad or worse than the problems. I’d rather win back American in steps rather than to support the politically suicidal positions offered by radical conservatism. I’m going to support Newt for the Republican nomination irrespective of his imperfections. Ron Paul, if elected President, would be the Obama of foreign affairs and the “can’t get it done” President on economic issues because neither the House nor the Senate will support him.

    One party practices socialism. The other doesn’t practice capitalism. Neither party practices humility or restraint. It is a measure of how far we have fallen that the only candidate who is a principled advocate for Constitutional government is labelled “radical” or “unelectable”. Both the Democrats and Republicans have had their chance. Time for divided government: Republican House, Republican Senate, President Ron Paul. With one vote you can put the fear of God in Obama, Bernacke, the Republican and Democratic leadership, the UN, NATO, Wall Street and K Street. Ron Paul need not run as a 3rd party candidate. The GOP can lose to Obama without his “help”.

  • Here is the deal folks. You RINOs think that you are going to slip in Romney/Gingrich and all of us libertarians/tea party people will hold our noses and vote form a continuation of the status quo.

    You are dead wrong.

    Glenn Beck won’t have to vote Ron Paul third party, because Ron Paul is the most electable Republican nominee against President Zero. And for anyone who votes for a treacherous RINO like Gingrich just because he has an (R) behind his name might as well be voting for Obama, who would destroy the Grinch in a general election! It’s about the principles, not the party. It’s about restoring American prosperity, liberty, the rule of law and the Constitution, all the things that made this country great.

    A vote for Gingrich is a vote for Obama. But a vote for Ron Paul means a conservative American Renaissance. Good on Glenn Beck for starting to realize that.

      It is good to be principled. It is much better to be a pragmatic. That is, if you want to get anything done.

    A 3rd party run by Paul would take a hefty chunk out of the GOP vote. Paul would win most independent voters. More than any of the present GOP nominees, Paul would easily siphon off the most disillusioned Dem voters. So if he does not get the GOP nomination, I hope Paul does run as a Libertarian where he will be on the ballot in all 50 states. To those of you who like establishment GOP’s “Socialism Lite”, stay with that. What do I care if you vote for Newt or Romney? It’s the same as voting for Obama. Same destination.

Regardless, Paul will end out-of-control spending in Washington, and every Republican can trust that.

Regarding Savage’s comment that Newt failed w Contract with America — sorry Savage, but were you not paying attention at the time? He passed it, over Clinton’s vetoes. It was a HUGE success. Even liberals have been forced to concede that Welfare reform was a run away smash hit. And he balanced the budget, doesn’t the man get any credit here? Come on folks lets be reasonable.

All you guys “that” don’t like Paul’s foreign policy, fine, strap on you damn boots and lets get you into the fight. PAUL NEVER SAID HE WOULD NOT DEFEND AMERICA, he simply wants us to mine our own damn business and I agree with him.

    and one more thing…me and the wife stopped watching the beckster a while back because it seemed he was really pushing his cult…not out right mind you but i see more and more advertisements on you-tube and the blaze by the Mormon religion (cult) so we decided to watch cartoons instead….

    Ron Paul can win as third party. It’s becoming more clear each and every day. Newt? Really? That’s the best the GOP can do? That’s sick.

  • LOL I knew that once Scoop posted something with Ron Paul’s name in the title the comment section would go crazy. I didn’t figure though being off for a half hour and the comments would jump from 30 to over 400 though. That didn’t take long!

        I always vote for who I think will be the best President, and in this case I think that’s Ron Paul. What happens after that is out of my control

  • Anonymous

    Well a third-party Ron Paul would guarrantee an Obama win. This country can’t stand another 4 years if Obama.

    • …and the country can’t stand a RINO, either.

      Vote Ron Paul, the only non-RINO, non-Marxist on the ticket.

      Actually, it would be the Republican party handing it to him. The nomination and presidency quite obviously belongs to Ron Paul. Don’t throw away your vote.

  • I can’t believe that so many people think that Newt could actually beat Obama. You have to be kidding me. He has changed his positions more times over the years than can be counted. He is a bigger progressive than Bush the younger ever was. Sure he sounds glib and smart now, but do some homework, learn some history. Ron Paul is who he is, no surprises. Maybe Glenn is just tired of being lied to. In which case, I agree. I wouldn’t trust Newt as far as I could pick him up and throw him.

    • Newt CAN beat Obama. I really can’t believe that so many people are so against Gingrich. The qualities to be SOTH don’t “enamor” one to either political persuasion…which explains why Coburn and some of the other Repubs don’t trust him…Newt literally had to beat the pulp out of them behind closed doors to get them to vote a certain way. Both sides of the aisle had the stuffing beat out of them by Newt back in the day. But that’s not the job of the POTUS. The Pres sets policy, submits a budget, protects the citizens, etc. That being written, Newt knows history MUCH better than anyone else in the campaign. How does one know where we need to go, if one is not familiar where we’ve been? Glenn is being a tad hypocritical here…on one hand he states that we need to change ourselves, and that NO politician can solve our country’s woes, but on the other hand wants to hand BO another term by voting 3rd Party? Gimmee a break, Glenn…stick to what you do best and DON’T try to tell me how to vote.

    This election is about principles and uncompromising values. If the GOP refuses to nominate RP, then it’s the GOP that is handing Obama a second term. That’s the bottom line, and millions of people across the US that support RP understand this.
    Wouldn’t be all that surprising though, seeing as the Neo-Con infiltration of the GOP has been working hand-in-fist with the Obama crew to implement late-stage Cloward-Piven.

      Another great reason RP isn’t going to get elected…ever. Shove your conspiracy [email protected]

        For anybody that thinks they these people are from the same elite you might want to reconsider after you do some research! I found it hard to believe to after months of research there is only one conclusion we have been run by the same elites and it is all an elusion! It is a shock I know, you can start by learning about the council on Foreigh relations! Here is a good video history of it! I am telling you the truth! We have been the number 1 target of propaganda for a long time, that’s why it doesn’t appear to be getting any better! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OA_CfSbhNrA

        Can’t wait to watch neo-con israeli firster subversives Mark Levin and Rush Limbaugh have aneurysms when Paul gets the nomination. They’ll probably back Obama to keep American tax dolalrs flowing to subsidize israeli healthcare and education.

  • To compare Obama to Newt is to be politically tone-deaf.
    Newt is NOT perfect. But he is also not the doddering old kook that is Ron Paul.
    I don’t see how Beck, who is clearly off his rocker lately, can support Ron Paul if he is against his foreign policy. Ron Paul’s foreign policy is as dangerous as Obama’s.
    At least Newt has governed and implemented major conservative change. He brought Clinton to the right with welfare reform etc. He would be infinitely better than Obama. To think otherwise is idiocy.

    • Jonathan Zaffke

      How is Ron Paul’s foreign policy dangerous?

      • His foreign policy is naive, inept and misguided. Isolationism might’ve worked when he was born, but not now.

        • Candy Raine

          How is Paul an isolationist?

          • He’s a libertarian, so by definition he is. Listen to his debate bullet points, if you don’t believe me.

    I didn’t realize that the rest of the Republican party is a bunch of duped fools until I read the comments here. Gingrich is a progressive. I for one will de-register Republican and switch to independent. The Republican party has been derailed by the press and DC insiders. I refuse to vote for another McCain after being boxed in to 1 candidate. I am only going to vote for CONSERVATIVES or not at all. That’s what Glenn is getting at. Give me conservative, or give me death! Ron Paul is way more conservative than Gingrich and my conscience would be more at ease with him than Gingrich. His point is that your front runners are too socialist, and I agree with Glenn and Savage!

  • Running outside the GOP would undermine Ron Paul’s entire career and derail the momentum in the GOP towards limited government that he has single-handedly guided for a decade. Anyone who would suggest or recommend such an idea cannot have a clue what Ron Paul’s message is. Instead, they would sacrifice everything Ron Paul has created in his lifetime to satisfy their own ego. Also, winning as an independent is useless. No one needs a president who is a lame duck from day one at a time when limiting government and cutting spending are the only viable paths to rescue our nation. The idea is shallow and self-centered and has nothing to do with Ron Paul or with the defense of liberty through limits on government that Ron Paul stands for. As always, Beck is an agent for the statists by totally obscuring the important, relevant impact or Ron Paul’s candidacy and focusing on the fantastic but pleasing to his ego nonsense of a 3rd party run. Talk about folks who need to wake up, Beck has missed Ron Paul’s point for at least 5 years now. He just hasn’t a clue.

  • Go Ron Paul… Dr. Paul could EASILY beat Obama folks. Nearly ALL independents would vote for Paul over Obama and a great deal of Democrats would as well because they are so disappointed with Obama’s lies…

    • In your dreams…

    • If ROn Paul could beat Obama so easily then why is he not winning in his own party??? Why…I will tell you why….He is a nutjob! His ideas on foreign policy are dangerous and naive. Ron Paul will get the USA into another war faster than lightning because his retreat isolationist views will only embolden the terrorists and give them staging grounds to attack mainland USA. That is why he will not win the nomination of his party nor the votes of the nation. Face the facts…read his own positions from his website…..

      RON PAUL’s FOREIGN POLICIES ARE DANGEROUS!

      • Candy Raine

        I wish I could agree with you krieger but it is you who is the nut job. Where are at Russia or China maybe? You don’t want to see a Paul victory do you? Your little stupid gravy train comes to its end doesn’t it. Go back to your one room shack and leave America alone.

        • so someone that says about terrorists ”if we leave them alone they will leave us alone” is that not crazy? naive? or just plain stupid??

          someone who states; ”if I am elected president I will bring all US troops home immediately” and he means all US troops from around the world and he does mean immediately.

          someone who states; ”if elected I will remove all foreign aid and stop all forms of international intelligence gathering” I will impose US Law and restrict US intelligence actions.

          someone who states; ”I think Iran should have nuclear weapons”

          And these ideas are not those of one who is not insane….

          Please rationalize that one for me because I think it is one of an insane nutjob to me.

          But I will be open minded….please tell me how you can rationalize those positions.

      • Did you ever have someone in your life that had a condescending superiority complex who was always telling you what you should and shouldn’t do while partaking in many of those same things and not applying their own advice to themselves? Remember the offense you felt with that person? I think thats whats happening here with us and foreign relations. Look at what America brings with it every where it goes. Hollywood, Mcdonalds , not to mention grave hypocrisy. Im not opposed to those things because i grew up with them. But what if Iran became occupier of America and began banning those things I grew up with because islam is a superior way or whatever and began pushing what they believe? We are not here to make sure that islam accepts those things that are extremely offensive to their religion. I have met many islamic women who wear their burka because they believe in what it means along with the along with islams view of women and cinema in their culture. Their hatred is much deeper than what the state run media gives you. Surely many in iran remember when we were empowering them, afghanistan and many other countries when our enemies were coming against them because we feared them having control over that region but now they aren’t allowed to have certain weapons just because we are afraid they will use them on us a hostile invader? Ask anyone alive from nagasaki or hiroshima if they are comfortable with the us having nuclear armament I suspect you might find some who are not so should the U.N. ban us from having them too since we have shown we are not afraid to use nuclear bombs to come out on top? That’s alot of what I hear when people think Iran should not have access because ahmidinajab has proven he’s not afraid to use them. SOOOO WHATTTTT? Neither are our government leaders. Just because its not on the news doesn’t mean its not true. Talk to a middle easterner and find out first hand what happens over there. Israel has historically been accepted as Gods chosen people on the foreign political front by America while forgetting that in their own writings( Judeo Christian) Ishmael the rejected son of abraham was blessed by god himself and promised to be a great nation of 12 brothers with a land inheritance that came with that. The land now known as israel has only been theirs for a blink in the eye of history so how come they got it over the palenstinians Come on think about it; look behind the policies and find out where they came from. Our foreign policy is rooted in the judeo christian manifest destiny that allowed us to walk around with big heads thinking we would liberate the poor red man and trounce right into the native american camps and deprive them of any means of protecting themselves, convert them to christianity and the superior white mans way, baptise them in rivers and then shoot them as they came out of the water and then take their pristine land and give the reservations in payment. I love America but when soldiers come home from Iraq and tell me they have no idea what the plan is over there other than to be a world police force I cannot agree with that. Go back and read Former Pres. Bush’s objectives for entering afghanistan and iraq. HAVE WE EVEN COME CLOSE? My research says no so why are we there?

        I have read and listened to Ron Paul’s foreign policies for years, and the only danger I have seen and heard from his policies is targeted toward the Islamists who hate Israel (and aggressors worldwide).

        Ron Paul has been one of the most pro-Israel U. S. congressman since the state of Israel was restored in 1947. He was one of only a few U. S. congressmen who supported the 1981 Israeli attack on Iraq’s nuclear facilities. He seeks to eliminate aid to Israel’s enemies (which currently is seven times the aid we give to Israel). And he is on the same page as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who this year told congress, “You don’t need to send American troops to defend Israel. We defend ourselves.” And he is on the same page as all true Zionists who believe in self-reliance and independence, and reject the “Big-Brother” mentality of so-called “Israel-lovers” and “protectors” in the U.S.

    Beck has jumped the shark! Whatever credibility you had left with me, Glenn, you’re losing very quickly. Ron Paul is a nut and Obama has been a disaster. Gingrich may be a progressive but he’s at least a progressive conservative and would make a far better president than either Obama or Paul.

    • Jonathan Zaffke

      Gingrich has no integrity. How is Paul a nut? Ron Paul may lack charisma, but he is a solid person who actually tells us what he believes instead of pandering to the vote and then flip flopping later on. We don’t need any more surprises.
