If the republican party does drop Ron Paul I do hope he stays on the ballot as a write in for those of us who really thenk Ron Palu is the one to chnge the guard in government operations and savint this country from eternal misrepresentation and corruption.

The Romney camp should be listening to the Ron Paul supporters and his followers. We cannot tolerate a Romney inaction camp and Ron Paul is the only one who can defeat Obama by a resounding cu-de-gra end to his lies and hate Obama has for this country.

Why any ameircan would support Obama is incomprehensible, he represent the death of this nation.

A vote for Paul in the general election is a vote for Obama. Why can't Paul supporters see this? If Paul does go into the general as a third party or independent, he will have the same effect that Perot did in 1992, and will increase the chances of Obama winning just as Perot did for Clinton. Paulbots, please come to your senses. Romney may not be your favorite candidate, but at least look at the facts and see that he is far far better than 4 more years of Obama.

Sorry Ron Paul but you don't have a ghost of a chance. The Republican candidate has already been chosen.

Don't write off Ron Paul. He has more knowledge and integrity than all the others combined. The powers that be would like you to think that Romney is the nominee but that is not necessarily so. Ron Paul is a very viable candidate for the Republican nomination. If you have ever been to one of his gatherings, it is electrifying. I attended one in Washington with 1700 people in the room and that many more outside. He speaks the truth and the truth "tastes" good. If Ron Paul is not the Republican nominee then he will win the election as a "write in" candidate if necessary. Wake up.

I still do not understand why he ran as a republican in the first place, talk about sell out.

As far as I'm concerned, Ron Paul IS the ONLY candidate that can actually help America.

Does Mitt Romney understand the implications of allowing a private banking institution - the Federal Reserve - to manipulate our currency? Nope.

Has Mitt Romney served in the military? Nope. (But he did dodge the draft right?)

Does Mitt Romney understand the "Boom and Bust" cycle of the Federal Reserve and a central planned government? Nope.

Does Mitt Romney draw THOUSANDS to his speeches and rallies? Nope.

Look - America is waking up to the police state tyranny that is currently in place. Ron Paul is THE answer.

If you want to argue this, please do so. Dig DEEPER and REALLY educate yourself on the issues. We need more educated voters... and those who choose to vote for Robamney, they're just following the definition of INSANITY.

@chuckypita You say we need more educated voters. Well I am very educated and I have Google'd Ron Paul and here is what I have found out. He has not signed the National Organization of Marriage's pledge to defend the Defense of Marriage Act and pass a Constitutional Amendment to protect traditional marriage. He sponsored a bill to legalize marijuana, and his son Rand Paul has stated that his dad supports the legalization of prostitution. All three of these ideas are against the National Republican Party platform. Romney has signed the pledge, is against the legalization of marijuana and prostitution. Also Ron Paul wants a non-interventionist foreign policy and I believe that we need a strong military in this post 9-11 World to thwart attacks on and render assistance to our Allies when necessary. I will be casting my vote for Mitt Romney to be the next President of the United States.

When the people of a state vote for Romney as the GOP nominee but a few people know how to work the system to pick delegates who will ignore the vote and go their own way to elect Ron Paul, that reminds me of a dictatorship.
