    [Funny granted his main support from educational institutes and our active military.

    I'm not gonna say our men on the front lines are college grads but .... to say they're uneducated is rather demeaning.]

    His main support isn't from educational institutions, but from students who are not yet educated. And active military on the front lines are usually are uneducated. The smart ones do their time, quit, and go to college on the GI Bill to become educated.

    Anti Bush-Obama-Romney:

    Not saying Mitt is perfect, and there's a lot he could improve on with holding on to the Constitution. Getting government out of education is one of many.

    To say Mitt and Barack are the same is a stretch. We can survive another four years with Mitt, but not BO.

    he'll be back to community organizing soon.

    Maybe he will feel safe enough after tonight to disavow Donald Trump. Here's hoping.

    There is a JOKE that says that both Barack Obama and Mitt Romney could both use the same bumper sticker slogan. That slogan is:

    "I am not Mitt Romney."

    Paul was never relevant. His fans are short-sighted and largely uneducated. Even if Paul's lunatic minions hijacked the RNC, do you ever think he could win the Presidency?

    They have such magical thinking! Idealists are either irrelevant or dangerous.

    How is Romney honest when he flip flops on on every position he ever held? Get past his campaign rhetoric and look at his track record before you throw your vote away on an unconcsitutional candidate like him or Obama.

    Choosing between Romney and Obama is like choosing between eating cyanide and battery acid. Not much difference between them . Both are deadly to the body. Romney and Obama are deadly to this repoublic.

    Congrats to Mitt for outlasting a field of second raters and Fox News wannabes. He also has my sympathy for tying himself closer to Trump, who must be the biggest ego on the planet.

    " After all, the man will definitely lose to Obama."

    Romney is set for life and will always be a man with greater integrity. It's America that will lose. Not Mitt.

    @Rapunzel, it's absolutely true that even if Mitt sweeps Texas, he *still* doesn't have the 1144 votes he needs. He's likely to get them eventually (possibly by the time Utah adds in their 40 as the last state on June 26th), but it's unfortunate the way the system has been gamed from the beginning with none of the mainstream news outlets being willing to post *actual* delegate counts as opposed to allegedly *probable* delegate counts. I'd put as much blame on our impatient media cycle as on lazy journalists, though.

    @John20000, it doesn't sound like you've read or heard much actual Paul rhetoric. *Of course* modern society and governance is 'give and take' -- Paul says so as often as the next reasonable guy. He simply reminds us that modern society and governance doesn't need to 'throw out the baby with the bath water' as it were. We can keep the 'Bill of Rights', the Golden Rule, and other important principles and still accomplish that give and take.

    It's worth giving him an actual listen. I'm grateful for his message.

    Ron Paul's message is not isolationist in any sense of the word. He supports true free trade between nations and dialogue with all. It is not he who is in favor of trade embargoes or sanctions. If he had his way, for instance, we'd open up relations with Cuba instead of continuing to fight the Cold War.
    I disagree that liberty can only be achieved by hermits. In fact, I think that the more free a people are allowed to be, the more they can engage each other in communities and voluntary associations of all kinds. Would you say that government is the only reason people talk to each or work together? I'd contend its the other way around. People working together and communicating in open dialog build societies which then decide which form of government they will choose. Liberty is not ignoring those around us. It is respecting their God-given rights to pursue their own course for their life and expecting that they respect ours. Liberty doesn't stifle dialog and communication. It encourages and improves it.

    Who cares if Romney is to claim the GOP nomination, that puts the cart before the horse, it's not up to him, it's up to the RNC in Tampa Florida.

    Mitt + The Donald = Vegas

    A veritable royal flush of Republicans will be in Las Vegas on Tuesday when presumptive presidential nominee Mitt Romney journeys to Nevada for a pair of private events, one at a local furniture manufacturer, the second at Donald Trump's opulent International Hotel and Tower for a fundraiser where tickets will fetch $2,500 to $10,000. Gleeful journalists pined for news that Mr. Romney would distance himself fromMr. Trump after the real estate kingpin recently reignited the birther issue surrounding President Obama's origins.

    I am all for liberty, but Paul's message is isolationist; that is, you can only have liberty if you are isolated from everyone else. Living in a community means some of your liberty has to be sacrificed for the liberty of others. It is give and take. Your rights end at my nose and my rights end at your nose, so to speak. It would be impossible for everyone to have unlimited liberty unless we were all hermits (even then it is still not possible).

    Maybe he figures he's got the thing locked up. Now he can bring the circus to town, starting with trump.

    This news article is assuming a whole lot. Let me point out that: 1)Dr. Paul is still in the race and 2)We don't truly know how many delegates Romney actually has until the voting begins in Tampa. ;) But, I know the MSM really wants to anoint Romney ASAP. After all, the man will definitely lose to Obama. Just remember: If you actually want a choice in this next election - between liberty or tyranny - Ron Paul is your man.
