Tácticas de Romney em Massachussets

O desespero tem destas coisas. Aparentemente a plataforma é para manter na convenção a todo o custo.

Ron Paul venceu Nevada e Maine?

Como podem ler no site do Washington Post, Ron Paul elegeu 22 dos 25 delegados a Tampa.

Na 1ª ronda terão de votar de acordo com o resultado de Fevereiro (Romney 50%, Paul 19%), mas se houver mais rondas podem votar em quem quiserem. E claro, podem ajudar a alterar algum ponto no programa Republicano.

No Maine, Ron Paul conseguiu os 15 delegados em disputa, mas a campanha do Romney ainda está a tentar alterar esse resultado.

Ron Paul na lista dos 100 Mais Influentes da Time

E com um bom texto a condizer:

Why does Congressman Ron Paul draw such large and enthusiastic audiences even though he has no chance of winning the Republican nomination? Because people like a politician without marbles in his mouth.

Paul does not censor himself. He comes across as sincere, earnest and independent of his party’s fat cats. In the debates, only he called out the American Empire’s meddling in the business of countless nations around the world. He assails the Pentagon’s bloated budgets and has worked with liberal Democrat Barney Frank to shrink the military-industrial complex. He wants to end our boomeranging wars.

Paul, 76, draws a distinction between libertarian conservatives and those corporatist conservatives entrenching a corporate state in which Big Business merges with Big Government. That’s why he is against bailouts. His defense of privacy and civil liberties and his opposition to the war on drugs endear him to people beyond his libertarian base. They even include some progressives who cannot abide his views against health, safety and economic regulations or his denunciation of the Federal Reserve’s fiat money and social-welfare programs like Medicare.

Ron Paul na UCLA

Pode ter perdido a nomeação para o Partido Republicano, mas Ron Paul continua a liderar a revolução liberal nos EUA, para tristeza de muitos que perguntam quando vai isto parar. A resposta? Não vai.

Como escreveu Tom Woods,

Here’s Ron Paul at UCLA. (Click on the image to get the full effect.) None of the others, who are just more of the same Dole/McCain/Bush nothingness, can generate this kind of interest. When they are long forgotten, Ron Paul’s legacy will live on. Who else inspires Americans to read the great economists and political philosophers, and to question the regime’s sacred orthodoxies?
