When the Mitt hits the fan, Paul libertarians--especially the young and idealistic--will NOT back Romney. He is, after all, a champion of everything repellent the US State does overseas and at home. He is a despicable statist, a junior oligarch, and a proponent of perpetual war, bank bailouts, torture, murder, camps, indefinite detention, kill lists, drones, the police state, redistribution, and the empire. I could go on.
Says John Hudson in the Atlantic. Note: I am getting deluged with comments, too.
Writes James Dunlap:
You guys really fought (and continue to fight) the the good fight on Ron Paul and the libertarian cause. Now I will fall back to another of your ideas: don't vote.
The Texas State Republican convention, which will feature a prayer rally for war, etc. and which stars Rick Santorum at its gala, puts Ron Paul into one of the many breakout session this afternoon, when few people will be there. (All the hoopla is tomorrow and Saturday.) Ron was barred from any general session. Is this dissing a preview of Tampa? No, because Ron will not be allowed to speak at all during that evil event.
Capitol Column wonders about the latest email from campaign headquarters.
Here's Politico's take on the latest email from campaign headquarters.
The truth about Ronnie is leaking out, much to the upset of the Republicans. But Murray Rothbard had the facts at the time. Reagan is the perfect Republican: talk a good game while serving the expanding, looting, killing State.

Well, of course, she does, since Ron does not want to commit genocide against the Persians, and is not dedicated to a foreign government. Oh, and note that the neocon terrorist Anders Breivik praised her as a dedicated anti-Muslimite. (Thanks to Daniel McAdams)
That's what Business Insider claims. It also alleges that the effort is based on an alliance with militant evangelicals. At least one is urging Rand to make a trip to their Mecca.

Politico: “[The RNC has] been fighting us all along,” said...an activist working to organize a three-day celebration of Paul’s libertarian ideals on the eve of the convention. “We’re Republicans. Do they want to alienate us, or do they want to bring us into the fold?”
In fact, the GOP hates and fears the Paulians. They would rather see their fellow corporatist Obama elected than Ron's ideas advance. As to entering the sheepfold under the staff of the shepherd Mitt, who would want to? Besides, it's not a fold--as bad as that is in any non-religious context--it's a hive. If you cannot be a mindless bee, happy to join the swarm, they do not want you.
