    Logicisyourfriend, you are missing the point. There is nothing wrong about protesting against speech you disagree with. Indeed, our country was founded on the very idea that we had the right to seditious speech. There is even nothing wrong with expressing to an art museum or other venue that you don’t want them to include certain works and not supporting them with your patronage and donations. You also have the right, indeed the obligation, to protest strongly and object when taxpayer money is spent to support “art” like this (the main argument over this particular piece of “art” originally is that government funds were involved.). REFUSING TO PAY FOR SOMETHING YOU FIND OFFENSIVE IS NOT CENSORSHIP. No one called the police and said that this speech was against the law and the artist/exhibitor should be arrested or even asked for a law to be passed to stop it. Would I support a law to stop the TAXPAYER funding of this? Absolutely, but that NOT censorship. The left has repeatedly yelled censorship when attempts are made to stop funding their “art” that is offensive to millions. In contrast, in Muslim nations with sharia and blasphemy laws, all kinds of speech is against the law and harshly punished. That is censorship. It is very sad and unfortunate that the left abuses this word because this will have consequences in the long run. Words and truth matter.

    A vote for Ron Johnson is a vote for Obama. And as for Ron Paul not being allowed to say any darned thing he wants at the convention to nominate Romney, well it would make no sense to allow him to speak if he’s not going to help unify the party. That is the ENTIRE POINT of any party convention – to unify the party. Ron Paul people never intended on unifying – I know – I talked to plenty of them. It was Ron Paul or no one for them in the Republican Party. He and even his different ideas would be welcome at the convention if he was dedicated to unity, but he never was and never will be.

    Thanks for nothing, Ron Paul.

    You really don’t understand politics if you think this. The two party system, as flawed as it is, has helped to ensure our freedom. Look at parliamentarian systems around the world. Ultimately, individuals align with one another to form ideological pseudo-parties to push their world view forward and to gain and keep power. When this doesn’t happen, they have to dissolve and start again because they can’t get anything done at all. Chaos ensues. People in both parties have widely varying viewpoints, but they come together in order to actually get something done.

    Thank you!!!!!!!!!!! Four more years of executive orders and Obamacare will put the death knell in freedom. We have to win – please Ron Paul people – wake up!!!! We need your energy and help to defeat Democrats!!!

    I wonder if JustAngry will share his or her age and who he or she voted for in the last Presidential election. These people are totally toxic. Many, if not most of them, are not Republicans and hate Romney more than they hate Obama. They were never going to vote Republican if Ron Paul was not the nominee. Ron Paul is all about Ron Paul and these suckers buy his schtick hook, line and sinker. They claim to care about freedom, but don’t want to stop BHO who is DAILY stripping our freedoms with executive orders, through his czars and appointees, and through dependence and debt. BHO people stay up nights thinking of ways to strip our freedom. Romney-Ryan will not do this. If you want libertarianism to have any chance in the future, we have to get rid of BHO and elect those who will repeal Obamacare. This needs to be the number one focus. If you think Romney is as bad as Obama, you are just deluded. I am 100% sure these people are planning something dubious at the GOP convention to try and destroy Romney.

    Scorpion, I believe you are off base here. The government takes these kids for 180 days a year and provides very little meaningful discipline and NO moral training whatsoever. The values they do teach are not based on any moral authority. Instead, they are told everything is relative and right and wrong is whatever you “feel” it is. Self-esteem and feelings reign as supreme values. So bullying is “wrong”, but sex out of wedlock is not unless it is “unprotected”. The list could go on and on related to what modern day society deems right and wrong, but when you take away the Creator’s standard, you just have invented human standards. Humanists have to reject God’s standards because there are too many things they don’t like, but it should not surprise us when kids choose to indulge their twisted nature. Add to that that the rest of the time, they are under media influence that tells them anything goes and worse. If you have a teen, you know that even if you ban almost all media like we do, our perverted culture slides through. It used to be that schools, churches, neighborhoods, organizations, etc., backed up what parents taught. Now, almost any parent will tell you, we are under seize. Short of completely withdrawing from the culture and moving somewhere remote to live off the land, your kids are hugely influenced by this rotten culture. I’m not totally excusing the parents, but it affects even good parents who try really hard to raise decent kids.

    Yes, according to Paul supporters who chased someone with a camera and uploaded it to Youtube, Romney “cheated”. Youtube – the ultimate source of truth. I would not put it past the Paul supporters to have created the fake slate and filmed the entire thing as part of their propaganda campaign. Their tactics are not on the up and up. But for those of you who don’t know what you are talking about, this was NOT an actual ballot. It was just a list of delegates Paul people were supposed to vote for. So if Romney people did do this (again, no proof of this other than Paul supporters claiming this), it was not an actual ballot. Where the cheating occurred is on the Paul side. They registered several illegal delegates. This is how they won. Of course, the bumbling Republicans who were not at all prepared for the Paul campaign to overwhelm the system allowed them to do it, so Paul supporters are able to claim the high ground, but the result is totally invalid.

    Your picture and your handle are very ironic. The blind devotion to a single man reminds me of voters 4 years ago, but with someone who promised hope and change. I definitely get the impression from meeting many Paul supporters that they will relish an Obama win if they get the credit for it. As I said in another post, they claim to not like Obama, but the DESPISE Romney. There is no negotiating with these people. Romney better acknowledge and fight a TWO FRONT WAR: Obama and Paul.

    I was at the Maine Convention. They won because they overwhelmed the system and had illegals delegates voting. Even then, they barely won, but Maine is a winner take all state at the convention for delegates. The majority of Republicans in Maine favor Romney, but Maine is sending Paul delegates to Tampa unless the legal challenge can stop it. Many actual Republicans left because it became clear the results were completely invalid. Terrible system. The misinformation by the Paul supporters about the event is relentless. Many, if not most of his followers are cult-like and are definitely NOT Republicans. Most of them don’t even know what voting district they are in. They claim to not like Obama, but they DESPISE Romney. There is NO negotiating with these people. Romney should meet with Rand and Ron Paul ASAP. If Paul is cagey and won’t say what he wants, Romney needs to understand he has a TWO FRONT WAR – one against Obama and one against Paul. If he wants any chance of winning, he must stop these people. They will do ANYTHING to stop Romney, including reelect Obama. They are drunk on their power, and a real “Lord of the Flies” atmosphere surrounds them. I hope to heck Romney challenges the Maine results. It was definitely invalid. Of course, the hapless Republicans in Maine could have been better prepared for battle. The Paul people have been at war with the Republican party in Maine since last winter (actually before).
