Thread: Maine Legislator Turncoat

  1. #1

    Default Maine Legislator Turncoat

    Rep. Ryan Harmon, a supposed Ron Paul supporter who often speaks libertarian, sent out this e-mail this morning:

    Dear Friends,

    We are making incredible strides in our effort to restore liberty and fiscal responsibility to America. Over the past few months Dr. Paul has been an exemplary advocate for our shared commitment to the Constitution. I am sincerely grateful for his contributions and I am honored to have had the opportunity to support him.

    With the General Election in sight, I believe that we can best advance our shared ideals by uniting with our fellow Republicans to challenge Barack Obama. Mitt Romney is a proven leader in the movement to restore prosperity and freedom to America and there is no doubt in my mind that he will be a principled President.

    Friends, I urge you to join me in supporting Mitt Romney and voting for his slate of Delegates to the Republican National Convention. Now is the time for us to come together and unite as Conservatives.

    In Liberty,

    Ryan Harmon
    State Representative
    District #45
    Burnham, Freedom, Knox, Montville, Palermo, Thorndike, Troy, and Unity

    Multiple Paul supporters have e-mailed asking him if he got some sort of sweet deal and he claims that's not how he rolls.

    I'm completely dumbfounded. This blind-sided me hard, because I spoke to Ryan Harmon last winter and pulled him in with the Paul grassroots because he looked like the real deal. Ludwig von Mises profile picture, posts libertarian and Austrian quotes, and has taken some hell for his open support of Ron Paul.

    And now THIS?! What the hell...

    This is the strategy. Put on a Ron Paul mask, say Liberty a few times, then when we all need you the most stab the REAL defenders of LIBERTY supporters in the back.... He must go.

    In state that elects the likes of Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe is getting rid of him even possible?

    I really really HATE betrayers like this. Spread the word about his betrayal so that no liberty lover in ME will touch him with a bargepole in the future. Kick the motherfucker out of office. He has been bought off by Romney.

    The people most relevant to this man's political career will be voting in new party leadership in Maine this weekend and I highly doubt they will forget this.

    Most politicians are opportunists.

    They want to wink and nod in every direction so that everyone thinks he is on his own side.

    I'm sure he just took some short Mises course, and posted it on his website to make everyone happy in order to advance his career and to get bigger pensions, government salary, and to aspire to become a lobbyist to really cash in.

    Nah, it's just one man. It's just annoying because many people trusted him and he burned us.

    We won't forget. I hope he has his re-election in the bag, because he's not getting our help.

    This sucks. I know lots of people that live in his district. I'm actually shopping for a second house in that district right now.

    If he threw support to Romney AFTER the RNC and Romney was the nominee, I could let it pass. But this? While Ron has a chance to win a plurality of delegates in Maine? This is crap. If anyone wants to run against him, I'll help.
