Palin: GOP better not marginalize Ron Paul and his supporters

Sarah Palin gave her analysis of the Iowa caucuses tonight, refusing to give any single candidate anything close to an endorsement. She also noted rather passionately though, that the GOP had better not marginalize Ron Paul and his supporters after tonight because their fiscal concerns are very legitimate and the GOP had better work with them.

She also noted her expectation that Bachmann will probably drop out in coming weeks, but also made sure to tell people to quit taking shots as this isn’t something personal against Bachmann, but simply her opinion.

I’d like to prove we don’t want what we say we want.
We say we want someone with integrity, honesty, will reduce the deficit, family values, unwavering, a “Reagan” republican.
First off Reagan was a “moderate”. It was said he has little chance to get the nomination not to mention win the office. Reagan also said there can be no peace if 1 person is dieing for the rest of us and there is no left or right, only up and down. The candidate we really want is being snowballed. Ron Paul. A “constitutional” candidate. A real “TEA party man.
See? You are discounting the one we really want and the one Obama fears. Since he’s been pushed aside and laughed at the Democrats believe they won’t need to face off with him. Ron Paul has strong minority support.
When will the GOP see this and wake up?

Jewish intellectual and political movements have done far more damage to the West and the United States than Islam has ever done. Marxism has killed 100 million people. Zionism, Neoconservatism, Freudian Psychoanalysis and Multiculturalism have inflicted more damage on Western Civilization that an Iranian nuke ever could. So why do we keep propping up this same Tribe who have nothing to do with America’s founding or ethnic heritage, even after our support for Israel has lead to the September 11th attacks and two wars since then, with all the resulting loss of life and massive debt accumulation that came with it? There are two scholarly books that will explain how and why Jewish group strategy has had such a profound impact on the West, and what lessons can be learned: The books are “The Culture of Critique: An Evolutionary Analysis of Jewish Involvement in Twentieth-Century Intellectual and Political Movements” and… Read more »

The globalists in this country have no allegiance to the United States. They could care less where they bilk their fortunes from. And their fortunes come from the manipulators in the power structure. Right now the money is changing hands in China. I’m waaaaayyy more worried about the elites in our own country militarily and financially selling us out to China and the global elite than I am about any phoney threat from Iran or terrorists. Top priority “should be” cleaning the scum out of our own DRAIN.

The best way to deal with Iran is to achieve energy independence and watch their economy implode. Fact. If we achieved energy independence it would also be much more politically acceptable to withdraw from the region. Nobody on here is discussing the real issue: we must deal with problems economically. Anything else is a lie used to expand government. Military expansion is the quickest historical route to massive/bigger government. Wow. I’m full of facts today.

Actually defending ourselves is best right here at home. Why be fighting overseas when we’re losing the war here at home? My plan is this: Dismantle the overseas war machine. Close the 700 military bases around the world. Let Japan, Germany, Greece and South Korea take the responsibility and expense for their own defense. The US is the top exporter of weapons in the world. We outsell the 2 exporter, Russia, by DOUBLE. Why is that? Because the world is an unsafe place or are we making it so? Bring our men and women home. For all our world-wide presense, for all our intervention and militarism, the United States has never been less safe or closer to collapse than it is right now. Free trade, non-intervention in soveriegn states. Trade and communication. If we’re attacked then wage a total war and not just one for money. You may not have… Read more »

Romney or Santorum need to actively consider Ron Paul as a possible Veep or as a high ranking member of their Cabinet and make the deal with him as soon as one of them is chosen as the GOP nominee in order to stave off the 3rd party thing and prevent a splitting of the vote.

Larry, there’s one inconvenient fact that occurred in the last couple of years that erodes the integrity of your case. You speak of Iranian leader hatred toward the US, but say nothing of the Green Revolution in Iran a year and a half ago. Those leaders, and an overwhelming majority of their followers, were begging for our support and help. Despite your claims, a large portion of Iranians are pro-West, and appreciative of America and what she adds to the world. And as far as our “policy of intervention” producing a never ending cycle of conflict is concerned, evil will always find places to occupy in this world- even when countries choose to ignore it.

This should be no surprise considering how far left of Obama, Paul is on everything other than the budget. Hell, I don’t think even Obama would consider Dennis Kucinich as his vice president, would you?

Ron Paul is even more vulnerable than Gingrich and Romney. His claim to be the campaign’s man of principle notwithstanding, he has been no more consistent on the issues than they. He claims the mantle of libertarianism, but has supported government price fixing. He pronounces himself the sworn enemy of overspending, but never fails to line up with his fellow congressmen at the earmark trough. The credibility gap caused by such hypocrisy is exacerbated by occasional bouts with insanity. “Dr. No” has, among other things, compared Ronald Reagan to Josef Stalin and associated with 9-11 “truthers.” And then there are those mysteriousracist newsletters. On a debate stage with the President, he will look and behave like everyone’s crazy old uncle. Obama’s henchmen won’t need to anything but watch and rub their hands together.

Ron Paul Fans! He has never authored a single bill that ever became law. He has never chaired or served as the ranking minority member of any important House committee.

Wrong Paul is a man who effectively walked across a snow-covered plain and left no footprints.

Paul is right on the need to cut government, and I certainly see why many would want to support him based on that. However, the other candidates can actually get it done, and he can not. Paul, like far too many legislators, has been more like the furniture in the building, than someobody accomplishing useful things. He’s had his chance.

The 2nd amendment relates to the defense of the nation- by us- the militia, and has nothing to do with hunting or sporting purposes. It was second only to the right to free speech/assembly/religion, that the 2nd amendment guarantees. If someone is ‘hating’ in the military is those who have spent decades sending them to third world countries that we could Ban from the USA by denying them all a simple Visa, and putting all the trillions… Read more »

Ron Paul will dump the few friends we have left in the world faster than Obama, and then we will be totally alone when the madmen take over the rest.

“moral hazard”

every state and people has the god given right to choose their own path, and they have the god given obligation to PAY THE COSTS of their own choices.

The USA being dragged into guaranteeing their bad choices or indemnifying foreign nations no matter their actions, choices or decisions is not only contrary to all republican/conservatism prior to the Neocon infiltration from the democrat party in the late 1980″s, but it runs 180 degrees against the warnings of Washington and Jefferson to stay out of all entangling alliances.

If other nations want to perpetuate disputes, they should do so knowing their sons and families will pay the price if it goes to a war, and their cities will take the damage and loss.

MORAL HAZARD encourages smart people to settle disputes, instead of take their chances or drag out conflict.

Rick Santorum’s history of voting for reckless deficit spending and his desire to continue a foreign policy of violence initiation would bring us bankruptcy and blowback with mushrooms over our cities. If you support his bible wrapped in a flag dictatorship, then you hate all that America has ever meant.

GOP – thanks to FOX, Gingrich, and Santorum, already lost most Paul voters, and its impossible to re-capture them after the viciousness and hostility the Neocons directed upon them.

Good job Gingrich in permanently alienating that 10-12% of the Repub base last night especially when his idiot operatives danced around Ron Paul in a private speech for Paul supporters, Sticking Gingrich signs disrespectfully in front of Pauls address to his supporters..

Hope the GOP can win without any cross-over voters and zero independent voters, and minus the 10% of the core who are Paul supporters…

That leaves the GOP with ..um… maximum of 25% of potential votes?.. real smart idiots! Or maybe is just that like Bill Kristol’s famous comment, the Neocons are fakes, who can happily make common cause with the democrat leftist interventionists over the traditional right.
Obama is a better option for the Neocons than a traditional non-interventionist Conservative.

Hey Paulbots. In all the years he was in congress only 1 piece of legislation he wrote passed and that was about making something a landmark. Why is that? He wrote hundreds of bills. Think about it.

Generally speaking, people who are voting for Ron Paul want less federal intervention in the form of laws. Not more of it. We like him for the same reasons that most of DC hates him. Our nation would be a lot better off if more congressmen and women had that sort of record.

Why do people attack one person’s lack of accomplishments and then say it is OK that our current president had no history of note, and no accomplishments of note prior to voting for him? Seems that people want to point out facts only when it fits there arguments.

It’s a little late for the GOP to make nice…look no further than the mis-characterizations of Dr. Paul’s comments/ideas regarding foreign policy here. I am a retired USAF officer, a lifelong Republican and I have voted for every GOP candidate since Nixon, but I’ve had enough. Last election the best they could offer was John McCain, now it looks like Romney or Santorum. Thanks, but no thanks. Waste your vote on these knuckleheads if you’d like, but I’m sticking with Paul…even as a third party candidate.

Those who would back Ron Paul and nobody else should remember that ‘principles have consequences’. And while many of Paul’s absolutes are attractive, others would set us up as patsies, suckers, fall guys or worse.

If you’re still in love with principles, consider this: whoever we elect will swear, at his or her inaugural, to ‘protect and defend the Constitution’. So we should be looking for the candidate who can best operate according to that job description. Obama has bungled it. But Paul couldn’t discipline himself to the rules of the game, either.

Obviously… and a lack of principals has consequences. Just look at the lack of principals that Romney and Santorum have.

Yes that is true. There are things that I decided not to sell and it has cost me money. I chose not to sell such items because the government rules are so arcane. I feel it is better to be principled and a bit poorer than to be richer and less principled. You agree? Do you like Newts principals when he said about Mitt – You are a liar. Then Newt says but I would support him. So Newt is cool with a liar in the White House. Then you say Paul won’t be principled but in the past he has – 1–He has never voted to raise taxes. 2–He has never voted for an unbalanced budget. 3–He has never voted for a federal restriction on gun ownership. 4–He has never voted to raise congressional pay. 5–He has never taken a government-paid junket. 6–He has never voted to increase the… Read more »

I would not be so quick to toss out principle over electability. One will lead us back to prosperity and the other will continue down the road to ruin.

Maybe the Republican party has nothing in common with Ron Paul…and those Republicans will vote Democrat…before they vote Republican…so I say for all conservative or liberal republicans vote for OBAMA and get more of your issues resolved…

I don’t think you understand the issues RP supporters are raising if you think they can just turn and support an establishment Democrat anymore than an establishment Republican.

While Ron Paul does have the ability (unique among the current GOP candidates, I might ad) to draw lots of independents and even Democrats, the vast majority of his dedicated supporters would never consider voting for Obama. That is a very wrong misconception. In the 2008 election, voting for Obama instead of McCain would have been like shooting oneself in the left side of the head instead of the right side.

By the way, why was it good for Reagan to draw independents and Democrats, but if Ron Paul does the same thing it is bad? That’s how you win elections. I hope people one day refer to themselves as “Paul Democrats.”
