Not. You can't join with evil and make it good... And as much as I supported Ron Paul, if he really does try to compromise to get on a vp ticket im withdrawing my support.


This is a very important point that a lot of otherwise RP supporters are missing (with the "well at least he could grab VP" crap).  There is no such thing as "a little evil" or "a little bad", especially when it comes to the concepts and principles of liberty.

You are either FOR the full measure of liberty, or you are for anything less than.  It really is that simple and illustrates just how horrible a vote for Santorum, Romney or Newt would be... regardless of who their picks for VP might be.

This "alliance" between Ron Paul and Mitt Romney was described in an article in The Washington Post, published on February 1, 2010:

For Romney and Paul, a strategic alliance between establishment and outsider
http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/for-paul-and-romney-a-strategic-alliance-between-outsider-and-establishment/2012/01/20/gIQAf8foiQ_story.html

By Amy Gardner, Published: February 1

RENO, NEV. — The remaining candidates in the winnowed Republican presidential field are attacking one another with abandon, each day bringing fresh headlines of accusations and outrage.

But Mitt Romney and Ron Paul haven’t laid a hand on each other.

They never do
.

Despite deep differences on a range of issues, Romney and Paul became friends in 2008, the last time both ran for president. So did their wives, Ann Romney and Carol Paul. The former Massachusetts governor compliments the Texas congressman during debates, praising Paul’s religious faith during the last one, in Jacksonville, Fla. Immediately afterward, as is often the case, the Pauls and the Romneys gravitated toward one another to say hello.

The Romney-Paul alliance is more than a curious connection. It is a strategic partnership: for Paul, an opportunity to gain a seat at the table if his long-shot bid for the presidency fails; for Romney, a chance to gain support from one of the most vibrant subgroups within the Republican Party.

“It would be very foolish for anybody in the Republican Party to dismiss a very real constituency,” said one senior GOP aide in Washington who is familiar with both camps. “Ron Paul plays a very valuable part in the process and brings a lot of voters toward the Republican Party and ultimately into the voting booth, and that’s something that can’t be ignored.”

To ensure that they are heard — not just now but after Election Day, too — Paul and his followers are working to gain a permanent foothold in the Republican Party nationwide. One state at a time, Paul’s supporters are seating themselves at county committee meetings, and standing for election as state officers and convention delegates, to make sure their candidate’s libertarian vision is taken into account. The goal is a lasting voice for an army of outsiders that has long felt ignored and sees the nation headed toward ruin if things don’t change.

That is just fine with the Romney campaign, which would be happy to bring Paul’s constituency — perhaps the most intense and loyal in the country — into the fold.

Romney’s aides are “quietly in touch with Ron Paul,” according to a Republican adviser who is in contact with the Romney campaign and spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss its internal thinking[/b][/color]. The two campaigns have coordinated on minor things, the adviser said — even small details, such as staggering the timing of each candidate’s appearance on television the night of the New Hampshire primary for maximum effect.

One advantage for Romney is that Paul’s presence in the race helps keep the GOP electorate fractured. But there is also a growing recognition that the congressman plans to stay in the contest over the long term — and that accommodating him and his supporters could help unify Republican voters in the general election against President Obama.

“Ron Paul wants a presence at the convention,” the adviser said — and Romney, if he is the nominee, would grant it.

Less likely are concessions on foreign policy, where Paul’s non-interventionist stand is at odds with that of Romney and most other Republicans.

========================

The Washington Post wants you to believe an anonymous person who CLAIMs a "strategic alliance" between Ron Paul and Mitt Romney.
Well, ok, if you want to believe the Washington Post, and an "anonymous" tipster... sounds like BS to me.

What's their strategy? How about "DIVIDE AND CONQUER" -- how about provocateuring the Ron Paul supporters into infighting?
THAT sounds more likely.

The fact that this has been ULTRA-REPEATED across mainstream media makes it more likely a NARRATIVE they've decided to push.

I agree that this is probably an establishment nwo trick.  That said there is nothing stopping Ron Paul from coming out now and setting the record straight.  He needs to do this and kill this fable now.

Why the hell does Ron Paul have to respond to the over 1,000 narratives Bilderberg dreams up in their Bohemian circle jerks? Every day their is another false narrative manufactured by Powell Tate, Renden, Lincoln, and Omnicom.

We need to develop better powers of observation IMO and we also need to stop any BS hero worshiping. It is the message that makes Ron Paul popular and the message is what we are supporting. And that is driving the noosphere analytics engineers fricking bonkers.

Their entire paradigm is based on attacking the character of a leader, they have no defense against a message whose time has come and they know it.

Anytime the Washington Post and the Huffington Post produce an obvious script that came right out of the CIA's handbook on psychological guerilla warfare, you know the purpose is to stop the message of liberty and the power of the constitution.

Big news? According to whom? Washington Post? The same Washington Post who thinks that the mass murder of over one million babies in illegal wars is NOT big news?

Sorry, but this is about as big a news story as "Obama's telepromter breaks down again"

No one gives a crap about this distracting speculative nonsense when compared to the real issues that we should be discussing like "New evidence shows that Bilderberg's Fast and Furious false flag operation was behind the assassination of Judge Roll and the attempted assassination of Congresswoman Griffith. They were the ones hot on the fast and furious trail so Bilderberg scumbags executed them on American soil with the cooperation of Holder, Clinton, and all the other OK City treasonous pieces of shit exposed in "A Noble Lie"."

Lew Rockwell: Rhetoric is a political ruse to make Ron Paul appear as a sell out
http://www.prisonplanet.com/insider-says-talk-of-paul-romney-alliance-is-establishment-trick.html
Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet.com
Friday, February 24, 2012

Former Ron Paul staffer Lew Rockwell says that talk of an alliance between Mitt Romney and Ron Paul is an “establishment trick” to smear Paul by making him appear as a sell out. Rockwell, who served as Ron Paul’s congressional chief of staff from 1978 to 1982 and remains close to Paul and several campaign insiders, told the Alex Jones Show that rhetoric about a potential partnership wherein Ron Paul would be granted a VP slot was merely a political ruse to “make Ron Paul supporters like Romney”.  The controversy received fresh impetus earlier this week when Rick Santorum and his campaign manager claimed Paul and Romney were in cahoots to shoot down Santorum’s candidacy. The talking point has subsequently been pushed by the mainstream media, including a Washington Post article today that speculates on whether the alliance is genuine. Rockwell said that although Romney may be a pleasant person, his political positions are anathema to Ron Paul given the fact that he is a globalist, a big government advocate and a warmonger. “Just because he looks good in a suit doesn’t mean that he’s not one of the top creeps, otherwise he wouldn’t be supported by the Republican establishment and by the establishment in general, so no we don’t want anything to do with him except to oppose him,” said Rockwell.

“They would never let Ron Paul be Vice President…the idea that the regime would invite him into office is just science fiction,” said Rockwell, explaining that the only way for Paul to be on the Republican ticket would for for his supporters to vote him in. Rockwell explained that the motivation behind the rhetoric was founded in the establishment’s fear of Ron Paul gathering enough delegates to influence the Republican convention. “They want to diminish him, they want to smear him, this is smear number 185 and I’m sure they’ll be others to come, it’s just another trick, they’re not going to ask him to become vice president, it’s just not going to happen,” said Rockwell, adding that the risk of Ron Paul using the office of vice president to derail a Romney administration was too big a risk to take for the establishment. As we highlighted in our previous article, considerations of a political alliance with Romney, if they exist at all, are likely coming from misguided advisors within the Paul campaign and are not embraced by Paul himself.

Of course it's a distraction. I don't think anyone was disputing that.

The point of dispute was whether or not this particular distraction was "big news."

Alex himself said point blank it was, and that that's why -- despite it being a distraction from real issues -- he felt it necessary to spend a large portion of Thursday's show addressing it.

I think this assessment of the story's size was correct, and that Alex -- as well as Paul Joseph Watson in his recent article -- have handled this delicate issue perfectly so far.

Sorry if that offends anyone.

Yeah, all I see here is two things.

1) "Oh my god, he really is winning despite everything we've been doing to shoot him down! Quick, maybe we can co-op him!" *cue footage of the scene in Independence Day were they find out the nuke strike didn't stop the mothership, only with Ron Paul superimposed over it*

2) And at the same time, "Wait, we can just make up he's thinking about running as vice-pres for Dummy errr... Romney so this way we can shake the faith people have in him and turn some of the fence votes over to our side. It's genius! Muh-wah-hah-haaaaah!"

Not a whole lot of common ground for alliance with the other candidates

For as long as but a hundred of us remain alive, never will we on any conditions be brought under English rule. It is not for glory, nor riches, nor honours that we are fighting, but for freedom — for that alone, which no honest man gives up but with life itself.

No deals with Romney, and that is from Ron Paul himself.
And yet the same revolutionary beliefs for which our forebears fought are still at issue around the globe—the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state, but from the hand of God.

Will everyone please stop spreading the rumor that neocon false flag elite board member is begging the Ron Paul campaign to be his vice presidential choice when he wins the nomination!

I am sick of hearing about Mitt Romney realizing that he has zero future in politics so he is begging the only presidential contender with an ounce of sanity for a VP slot either for himself or any of his chickenhawk sons who continue to push the extermination of over 1 billion brown people while avoiding any actual military service themselves.

Stop spreading this rumor put out by the frothy Santorum because he is now exposed as the biggest fake on the planet.

I have had enough of this rumor about Mitt Romney trying desperately to be President Ron Paul's Vice President dang it!

That is just the thing, there is all kinds of evidence that this was false from the very start but some still chose to listen to the MSM presstitute spin.  It is you who had no evidence not me.  Did this really sound like anything Paul has done previously?  Can you really believe you can add two and two and get theree?  Nothing about this story added up from the beginning.
