Well according to the comments on that Website posted in regards to his contrived little article, the old adage “when it rains, it pours” is proven yet again true, as that self-obsessing twit is now one drenched fool.

The fact remains, the GOP is no longer representative of American fundaments; thus, Ron Paul is patriotically slamming down the politic-reset-button and we are all right there behind him as REPUBLICANS.

If Mr. Golub does not finding himself enjoying this new reality then he can go off and start his own party, the Golub’s Women for Ideological Jewish Bigots Party (GWIJBP for short).

He hardly invented the idea of banning Ron Paul supporters from GOP, I'm sure if they legally could, they would, not so much because they fear losing, but simply because some people don't like to hear dissenting voices. Eric wrote the article to prey on the reaction of Ron Paul supporters hoping to get some twitter hits so he can then say "HAHA, look at you internet kids who fell for my trap, I knew I'd get your reaction". He's has no power to do anything about the GOP convention, if anything, he's given a free plug to the "libertarian love fest", and I think he deserves a pat on the back. Remember, he's a satirist :)

No, I don't think he is kidding at all.

I did find various parts of it hilarious though. Such as this:


Again, the newer Libertarians are too conservative for the Democrats fiscally and far to the left of most Republicans on foreign policy.

Let's see, the establishment Republicans are following the leftist Democrat Woodrow Wilson's foreign policy of "spreading democracy around the world" at the point of a gun, and they believe that is not leftist? ROFLMAO. Uh, boys, it's you who are the leftists. We are here to return the Republican Party and the country back to its constitutional, non-interventionist roots.

The actual headline reads "Paul Supporters are Not Republicans and They Should Not Attend the GOP Convention

hxx p://communities.washingtontimes.com/neighborhood/tygrrrr-express/2012/jun/26/ron-paul-supporters-banned-gop-convention/


However, their event ends on August 26th. The GOP Convention begins on August 27th. The GOP Convention is a Republican Convention. It is a Mitt Romney Convention.

It is not a Ron Paul or Libertarian Convention.

Therefore, it is perfectly acceptable at this point to ban Ron Paul supporters from the GOP Convention.

That's right. An outright ban on their presence is the only way to prevent the event from turning into a debacle. There is no legitimate reason at this point for them to be there.

Conventions, for better or worse, are no longer nominating events. Nominees are chosen through the primaries. The conventions are coronations for the winners of the primaries. To the victor go the spoils.

Taking over the GOP in the manner that some Ron Paul supporters have done may be within the rules and legitimate, but it's also been very sneaky and a little dishonest.

It's really no different than if some Marxist Dems tried to infiltrate the GOP (or Santorum Repubs infiltrated the DNC) from the inside. The GOP is not who we are, and doing this the way it's been done is also not who we are... it's like saying "we can't beat you in an election, so we're going to take over and occupy your party." It's no different from the way the establishment GOP conducts foreign policy when you think about it.

So I'm not sure if you're familiar with the "gun in the room" metaphor....
but basically we're all in a room together, and there's a gun, and the state picks up the gun and puts it to our heads every day, on every topic.
And it says that if we don't do exactly what it says, it's going to pull the trigger. And the loved ones of the person who just had his skull emptied aren't even going to be able to collect the insurance money to bury him. While they're at it, they're probably going to confiscate any resources the dead man had.

This election is all just an argument over who gets to hold the gun.
So your arguments about infiltration and sneaking around don't hold any moral water.

I'm having a bit of an uneasy feeling over some of the statements I see.

In the "Arkansas disses Paul" thread we don't like how they say things about Paulites, but he is right that on the forums (internet) "They call us Rhino's" and say "They are going to take over the party and kick us out", but..then we blame them for being scared and trying to block us.

The golden rule needs to be applied here. Put yourself, just for a moment, in their place 30 years from now.

Are we trying to get out a message and convert others asking them to wake up? Wake up to what, "Us taking over and kicking them out" or "this is what real conservatism and constitutinality and liberty is all about"?

Are they correct in all of their fears? I'm not talking about those that are at the top and illegally preventing our delegates, I'm talking about those that "think" they are doing right and trying to go by the rules. In the video on the Arkansas thread, the guy said, "They are doing it right, but it's immoral".

It is really circular, because when they break our guys's fingers when he is elected rules chair and they don't like it, that kinda leads to an us against them mood... but I agree that 'take over' statements don't help us to be effective.

And I always agree. however, yelling to be heard over a mic when people are ignoring your rights under the rules is not rude imho. Booing should find a different outlet (Ron Paul would have been a better chant than booing Romney's son and would have been harder to spin when Josh broke the rules electioneering at the conventions -- but you have to have that planned in advance. I noted the 'USA' chants drowning out the 'RonPaul' chants at the end of the convention in Louisiana and thought that was a nice touch...)

I agree completely, I think everyone has a right to be heard, and I am in no way defending the improper handling of many of these conventions by those in power.

I have a problem with our vitrol online at times that gives "them" a group mentatlity toward us and promotes a group mentatlity in us toward "them".

I have read articles before where they say "everyone that is not awake is our enemy, until they awaken, because they aid the enemy". While that seems true on the surface, caution is needed. For instance, there is a difference in "join the military to help others and protect our country" and "Let's go kick some raghead ass".

Either way, once we get to the other side of this convention, we can move forward as constitutional conservatives and not be bogged down by the Ron Paul label. Not trying to disparage Ron in the least, he's accomplished his personal task in my eyes. We just have to carry the momentum forward and by the next state convention or two we could have reclaimed 25 state parties or more.

Well I'm bad at being concise, especially when pissed off by a moron, so it's a little long, but here is the comment I just left on that pile of manure:


Eric, judging by your decidedly un-Republican view of how elections are supposed to go, I wonder, are you one of the defendants in the lawsuit against the GOP, RNC, et. al., for all the myriad instances of assault, intimidation, cheating, and election fraud carried out by those mindless Romneybots who are so loyal to "party" and "unity" that they have completely forsaken every ounce of integrity they might've once had? I'm guessing you are. Because your attitude that the party insiders, not the people, choose the nominee, is exactly why so many insiders in the GOP are now on the receiving end of said lawsuit, and why so many of them will soon thereafter find themselves in Federal prison for their criminal behavior.

If there is anyone who should be banned from the convention, it is people like you who do not even know the meaning of the word "Republic" and instead think it is their place to dictate to everyone else what label they should wear and how they should vote. Your views are a joke, and a bad one at that. I would recommend you move to China, North Korea, or Iran, since you think a dictatorship is a better place to live than a democratic republic.

Lastly, since you are sorely confused about who is entitled to be a Republican and who isn't, I will leave you with the immortal words of Ronald Reagan: "If you analyze it I believe the very heart and soul of conservatism is libertarianism. I think conservatism is really a misnomer just as liberalism is a misnomer for the liberals–if we were back in the days of the Revolution, so-called conservatives today would be the Liberals and the liberals would be the Tories. The basis of conservatism is a desire for less government interference or less centralized authority or more individual freedom and this is a pretty general description also of what libertarianism is.

"Now, I can’t say that I will agree with all the things that the present group who call themselves Libertarians in the sense of a party say, because I think that like in any political movement there are shades, and there are libertarians who are almost over at the point of wanting no government at all or anarchy. I believe there are legitimate government functions. There is a legitimate need in an orderly society for some government to maintain freedom or we will have tyranny by individuals. The strongest man on the block will run the neighborhood. We have government to insure that we don’t each one of us have to carry a club to defend ourselves. But again, I stand on my statement that I think that libertarianism and conservatism are traveling the same path."

I suppose you think you are smarter than Ronald Reagan? In that second paragraph, the tyranny he describes sounds just like your article. Truly pitiful, Eric.

...By all means, the Republicans should kick out the libertarians, the constitutionalists, the nationalists, and the fiscally sane. I think it would be fantastic. It's long past time they joined a party genuinely devoted to freedom, the principles of the Founding Fathers, and the American national interest anyhow.

But what is it with neocons and their obsession with playing ideological police and kicking people out of organizations, movements, and political parties? Buckley did it, Lowry did it, and here this Golub is calling for it. It is increasingly apparent that permitting people who have ideologically "seen the light" at some point in their lives to assume positions of influence in their new party is a tremendously bad idea. If you were ever a Democrat, or worse, a Trotskyite or Socialist, that's great if you eventually came to your senses and moved rightward. But you should not be permitted any leadership position or provided a voice in the right-wing media. After all, why on Earth should anyone else on the Right, who was never dumb enough to fall for any left-wing nonsense in the first place, pay your belatedly sane opinion any attention whatsoever?

I'm an Independent. I could care less what the GOP or the Democrats want.

I'm sure Mr. Golub would say one must disavow any allegiance to the United States and redirect it to the great almighty Israel.
