I don't normally like Time Magazine, but this post in Time's Swampland blog had me chuckling from the first paragraph.

The Story of Ron Paulís Presidential Candidacy as Told by His Supporters in Our Comments Section


Most people have hobbies: golf, model trains, restoring old cars, whatever. A year after Ron Paul announced his Republican presidential bid, I have concluded that his supporters must not do these things. They canít possibly have the time. While others are at rest or at play, Paulís supporters are on the Internet, googling his name and diving into the comments sections of news articles to register their opinions. Maybe itís a measure of their dedication or their web savvy, or both. I donít know. But they always show up, sometimes 500 or 600 in force or more. And since they often complain about the media giving their guy short shrift, I thought Iíd give them a chance to tell Paulís story, now that itís in its last chapter (http://swampland.time.com/2012/05/14/ron-paul-stops-active-campaigning-vows-continued-delegate-fight/). (There, the media just did it again.) What follows is a collection of comments, culled from TIMEís archive, that span the epoch of Ron Paul 2012.

Oh and Iím married and have to take care of our 3 pet bunnies. Oh right and I support ron paul because everyone else is MORE of a nut case. -Jaron DiTommaso

You trolls are still going after the irrelevant doctor? Shouldn't you guys be extolling the virtues of the Yankee progressive in magic underwear? I'll be supporting the good doctor as far as he goes, as I refuse to vote for a pro-abortion, pro-mandate, pro gay adoption "conservative" who doesn't think anyone should own "assault weapons."

I posted not to make fun of Paul, but rather the Ronulan-types who, as the blog mentions, swarm at the drop of a hat.

I mean, honestly...who couldn't find this fellow funny:
The fact that this article has more comments than the previous 6 combined just shows the fact that Ron Paul is winning, can win and will win. And journalists like Alex Altman will go in prison once things turn around. -SlickR

Article is pretty accurate. I don't know how funny it is, per se, but it's pretty accurate as to the roller coaster ride of the campaign so far and pointing out the media's clear bias against Paul in this election. I'd think it's a good thing to have such diverse groups of people supporting one candidate but I've come to accept that folks like you only respect movements where everybody thinks the same, looks the same, and acts the same.

Still waiting to hear why I should vote for Romney instead of voting against Obama. Didn't see that in the article anywhere. Leave it to the lefty media to continue to make fun of the supporters of the last conservative candidate standing against Romney....

No, you just can't stand the fact that everyone don't think, look and act like you do. That is the problem with RP supporters. You are intolerant of others that might have a different opinion, and go straight to attack mode when someone voices a different opinion. That is why you were not taken seriously. Once again his supporters are Paul's worst enemies. To bad your egos will not let you accept that, but it is the truth.

I know you can't stand the fact that it is "Majority Rules" in this country, but that is the way it is. I know it kills you that we just don't bow down and let you "enlightened" few rule the rest of us. Contrary to your wishes everyone gets to vote, even women, the unemployed, EVERYONE; we all get a say. That elitist mentality is what has turned main street against you. Just because you may have money does not mean you get to make the rules, and that just kills you.

To late, abortion is legal, gay marriage is a fact of life in several states, pot is legal in CA. These are just some of the things that I am against, but the majority were not. Now I have to live with the consequences. I truly believe that the loss of biblical morals is why this country is failing. We (as a country) have turned our backs on GOD, and now he is turning HIS on us. We wanted to do it our way and he let us, and we have made a mess of it. The majority voted GOD out, now we all will suffer.

In a previous thread, I opined that the nastiness against Ron Paul supporters will not make them decide that they need to "get on board" and vote Romney. I got a little nastiness directed my way, i.e. "I can't believe you just said that," etc. Let's face it: Romney needs Ron Paul supporters a lot more than they need him. So-called "mainstream conservatives" who like to have a lot of fun at the expense of Ron Paul and his supporters are doing everything they can to ensure that these guys won't vote Romney.

Before you say "Oh, whatever, Paul supporters would NEVER have voted Romney," that is a sweeping assumption that is incorrect and costly. Wonder if you are having too much fun roasting Paul to realize it.

What you define as " nasty " comments your way were deserved in the fact that you were scolding non Paul fans while all the while completely turning a blind eye to the constant crappola you Paul fans dish out to anyone who isn't a fanboy. And once again you are repeating that . It's irony in it's purest form and it all went over your head.

It's good to know that people would be wrong to assume that the vast majority of Paul fans won't vote for Romney and will support him in Nov. . I take it then that Romney will have your full support and in turn you will make every effort in trying to convince your fellow Paul fans to do likewise here and in person ?

Where did I say I was a Ron Paul fan? Where did I scold anybody, dish out "crappola," or show you that anything went over my head? You make a lot of unsupported assumptions. These are all political observations. It happens in many elections where the "winners" drive away the "losers" from sheer short-sightedness. Happens all the time and yet people, especially the GOP, don't learn from it. In that arena, Dems are ahead of us.

I don't particularly like Romney, although I won't campaign against him. Again, you assume that I am surrounded by Paul fans (my "fellow" fans). Paul knows he's not going to get elected. I don't have time to sit around inside the box you stuffed me into and live up to your expectations.

So do you deny being a Ron Paul fan ? Yes or no ? Do you deny scolding those that aren't Paul fans in the thread in question ? Yes or no ? Am guessing a stroll from posts made by you in the past may be telling. For starters posts you made on 4-18 and 5-12 on these matters.

Will you support Romney in Nov with your vote ?

That's like the proverbial "when did you stop beating your wife" question. My post was an observation of political behavior. It could have applied to any candidate in any race, and it often does. It happened in my own election.

Yeah, I'm not anybody's mom so I don't "scold" people. I like some of Ron Paul's ideas but I'm guessing you do too. He's not going to get elected. So I'm a "fan" in that I wish he could clean up the Fed and Treasury. But again, doubtful.

Go ahead and cite my past posts. Doesn't change my observation.

The only point of derision is for RP fans in their fawning obesiance fail to acknowledge their Titanic has found its iceberg. Eventually they'll be swimming in icewater, then complain when their Carpathia shows up painted in the wrong color.

My problem with them is continuing to attempt to make some pointless stand now that the path for Romney is clear, and everything they do past the point this has been obvious only damages our brand and the one shot there is at booting BHO.

Truth: I don't like ANY candidate, in any party. PERIOD. They all suck.

BHO, however, is his own special brand of malignant cancer. A special danger. The only thing important to me now is ousting him. His record needs to be repudiated. His wrecking ball needs to be scrapped.

For all the problems Romney MAY have, they can be fixed. For that matter, its only speculation that he'd try to run the US the way he did MA and he has repudiated some of that. If he acts up, we can boot him in term 2. If he doesn't we can actually fix some stuff.

We will not, however, survive another term of BHO.

So, the RP folk need to stop rearranging the deck chairs on their sinking ship, or arguing over how much horsepower it was built with, or what was really cool on the menu in the grand dining room. None of it matters anymore.

There is a singular job ahead…get BHO…GONE. That's it. Thats all that matters. Nothing else is even remotely relevant, and by the time the convention ends, no one will even remember who RP is. All that effort will have been wasted. He's never been viable. He's had some good ideas, and some crackpot ones. But when he himself admits he won't get it done, its time to move on to something relevant.

Colorado does not have a presidential primary. We have a caucus system. So... my votes were spent on more local candidates. It seems that G29Reload and I agree on one thing: none of the presidential candidates are ideal.

It is a political observation I made, and you want to discredit it by getting into the weeds about my personal preferences. If you can prove me to be a Paul fan, then you can write off everything else I say. I'd rather discuss the merits of my observation.

Does this quote make you a Paul fan?

I tend to disagree here. Romney's proposals show no real will to cut spending as drastically as is necessary to avoid economic disaster. And the argument that people who want second terms won't act too crazy has pretty much been blown to pieces by Obama.

Your efforts to insult Ron Paul supporters by bookending your entire post with pejoratives isn't really helping your argument in a thread such as this.



Yes, getting Obama out should be one of the goals Republicans are focusing on at a national level. The other is retaking the Senate (and keeping the House). So why are they running craptastic candidates that have a low likelihood of doing this?

I am NOT VOTING for Obama, which I had already tried to make clear.

Colorado is a caucus state. I was elected as a delegate to my county assembly, which in turn elected me as a delegate to the state assembly. The nice thing about this is that I can vote for whomever I choose at the state level. The state GOP is already playing games as to who is going to be voted onto the national convention ballot. Romney supporters are all being put first, with no regard to which county they are from or alphabetical order. All other delegates are not only being put on there without noting who they support (i.e. Santorum, Gingrich etc.) but they are being marginalized by party officials. I don't like such shenanigans. I will likely vote Paul at the state (I am currently unpledged), where he won't win, and I won't pursue national.

We will see who the nominee will be. I think we all know, but there may yet be some surprises.

His economic ideas is what attracts thousands of young people to his rallies. The younger crowd has started to realize they are getting SCREWED on this system. They're going to be responsible for the debt that the system is accumulating. Paul is a voice for that displeasure. No one else gives any serious lip service to the debt other than RP.

I'd say this universal vote thing is a big part of this country's problem. With about half on some form of government assistance and millions more counting on the government for a paycheck, when will there ever be an impetus for smaller government?

Seriously, do you think Ron Paul supporters are rich people trying to make the rules? That's just funny. Don't you know we all live in our parents' basements?

Very nice basements, with cable TV and high speed Internet and big bongs and the latest videogames and electronic toys and air conditioning and little or no experience functioning outside in the real world, among the voters.:tinfoil:

oh ye fools of mittens... scared? say your scared!

Not sure I've seen anyone here singing the praises if Romney and attempting to deify the guy.

There is nothing to be afraid of though. Just be prepared for bad times. Regardless of who is president, they are coming. Even if it were a Ron/Rand ticket, and they won, things are still going to be interesting, in a bad way. These are the good old days. Still, why be afraid? Makes no sense.

All elitist snobs who want to rule over their fellow man live in their parents' basements.

The only point of derision is for RP fans in their fawning obesiance fail to acknowledge their Titanic has found its iceberg. Eventually they'll be swimming in icewater, then complain when their Carpathia shows up painted in the wrong color.
The analogy should really be would someone on a sinking ship as you call it, want to leave that sinking ship to climb aboard another sinking ship...or continue trying to repair the ship they are on so that it is no longer sinking?

Go team.. go..

Conservatism is dead. A cursory glance at GTPI and the GOP candidates is all you need to know.

I'm just going to sit back and enjoy the show.
