Rand Paul’s Romney endorsement

It’s, how shall we say…

It’s going over like a hot turd in the punch bowl.

Here’s a compilation of shit people on the internet are saying, with the Ron Paul campaign issuing one, two, three separate blog posts on our rootin’ tootin’ internet tubes trying their best to tell everyone the punch is still fine. There’s more smatterings of Rand Paul in other releases.

Their blog’s main page tell the story well enough as a visual:

Of course with clockwork predictability, an angry internet mob has formed and are now dropping additional turds in the punchbowl as they switch parties to the official Gary Johnson individual served libertarian weed and snacks party (The GOP could be stomping on Obama’s nuts over the war on freedom, but everyone high in the ranks of party life is too much of a professionalism pussy to acknowledge these wars are over when We the people say they are, but I digress). You fuckers still over at that popped collar debauchery lovin’ GOP party can quote me on that.

The punch is of course the GOP party, and the turd is… well let’s say replacing the turds isn’t what’s going to get this country out of it’s corporate überhomeland mode super wartime fun games xbox financial meltdown any time soon. The technocrats already have their starbucks residential compounds built in plain sight. It’s called La Jolla.

Okay, enough of my shit, on with the turd fiesta a bunch of other people plopped.

The Libertarian Party pretty much calls him a traitor in their headline:

Rand Paul Betrays His Father’s Principles, Endorses Mitt Romney
Why Ron Paul Supporters Need the Libertarian Party

When Dr. Rand Paul ran for U.S. Senate in Kentucky, many of his fund-raising appeals were sent to the donors and supporters of his father, Congressman Ron Paul. They were designed to convince Ron’s supporters that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. That Rand was, like his legendary father, a steadfast champion of liberty.

But no true libertarian, no true friend of liberty, and no true blue Tea Partier could possibly even consider, much less actually endorse or approve of, the Father of Obamacare, Big Government tax and spender, Republican Mitt Romney.

Especially the son of Ron Paul, who has no excuse.

Especially a medical doctor, who has even fewer excuses.

Earlier this year, Rand Paul showed his willingness to sell out his supporters when he called higher federal government spending a “spending cut” – Orwellian language used routinely by Big Government Democratic and Republican politicians.

Sorry, Senator Paul. An increase is an increase, whether it’s a big increase or a really, really big increase in federal government spending.

Rand Paul had a list of excuses for his endorsement of Mitt Romney for president. For example, he claims that Romney will support auditing the Federal Reserve, oppose SOPA legislation which impairs Internet freedom, allow construction of the Keystone Pipeline, and support the REINS Act which would require Congress to vote on major new regulations.

But as Sherlock Holmes would note, it’s the dog that didn’t bark that proves Rand Paul made a devil’s deal with Big Government Mitt Romney.

If you can’t get what they’re implying, it’s that Rand Paul sees money on the line for his own perpetual campaign interests (after all, Washington is the place where every day is election day) if he doesn’t play ball. Old man Ron isn’t going to live forever and by golly this is a career.

NEXT PAGE: neutral expert analysis or whatever…

  1. Atta boy. I like your style. Put it front and center. Tell it like it is. Don’t be afraid to use those scary evil forbidden ‘curse words’ to drive the point home. Well done. I can’t wait to see the counter arguments from those in the ‘liberty movement’ defaulting to compromise — like golden boy Rand. Too funny. Short of some serious concessions by ‘Team Romney’ someone better start polishing their stethoscope. Too funny. It really is.

    ”Ron Paul supporters believe they rule the internet. Maybe they do, and maybe they don’t.”

    Rand Paul

    (Well, something like that)


    1. Rand Paul will benefit from the rules of incumbency, I doubt one endorsement would be enough to throw off his chances of getting re-elected. With Ron Paul retiring from Congress he’s got that political machinery all to himself.

      The timing should have been closer to the election (post convention, duh) if he wanted this to go smoother rather than looking like a fleeing rat from his dad’s sinking campaign.

      1. Yeah, I’d have to side with your assessment. The ‘polished stethoscope’ conjecture was basically tongue in cheek. Rand is known as a ‘Tea Party’ senator. Although Ron sometimes get the credit as father of the movement it appears to have been once again hijacked by the neocon faction of the republican party with a twist. It’s not difficult to sell the idea of middle eastern intervention and perpetual unconstitutional ‘police actions’ to indoctrinated Christians. Nuff said. Shrug…

  2. Rand Paul decided to sell out early, and avoid the rush.

    Still, Rand is one of the better Senators, but that is a low bar.

    It is clear that Ron Paul will not win the Republican nomination for President, so it is time for Ron Paul activists to start moving to the campaign of Gary Johnson, Libertarian for President.

    I guess we can thank the eye doctor for helping people to see that the Ron Paul campaign is about to end.

  3. Rand Paul is a sellout. Its a strategic sellout, but its one that wont soon be forgotten.

    In other news, this overshadows Ron Paul officially calling it quits on the campaign trail. 

  4. I will never support Rand. Ron and Gary Johnson own it to the Libertarian Movement to team up and avenge both his son and the GOP Establishment. If we get B.O. in the outcome then so be it ! as history mostly shows, we probably have to suffer much more as a nation to awaken the sheeple !
