“What happened to the Republican Party that I joined?”

Oklahoma state Rep. Doug Cox tells Salon why his Republican colleagues' policies are "discriminatory against women."

KRISTI KIRK (PATRIOTS AND PAULIES POLITICS & NEWS) – While I can appreciate his motives, I can’t help feeling Dr. Cox is a hypocrite for lambasting the GOP over being anti-choice when he is such an ardent supporter of Obamacare.

“What happened to the Republican Party that felt that the government has no business being in an exam room, standing between me and my patient?” Cox asked in his letter/op ed addressing Republican colleagues. “Where did the party go that felt some decisions in a woman’s life should be made not by legislators and government, but rather by the women, her conscience, her doctor and her God?”

Has he read the healthcare law? (http://www.hhs.gov/healthcare/rights/law/)

5 Signs You're Really a Libertarian Republican | PATRIOTS AND PAULIES

Libertarian + Republican = Republitarian (aka Libertarian Republican)

KRISTI KIRK (PATRIOTS AND PAULIES POLITICS & NEWS) – Whatd’ya get when you cross a Libertarian with a Republican? A “liberty Republican?” Or a “Libertarian Republican” perhaps?  I prefer, “Republitarian.” But then I think the elephant-porcupine hybrid makes a ‘cute mascot.’ 

According to the Washington Times, in polite circles, Republicans who borrow a few pages from the Libertarian Party playbook are called “Libertarian leaning” Republicanswhich a new poll reveals is now about 41% of the GOP voter base (or closer to 80 percent if you include Republican-leaning Independents.)

Yes, you read it correctly.

Republicans in record numbers are leaning more toward the ideals and principles of Libertarianism — and if you are a fiscally conservative Republican with a moderate social conscience, chances are you’re one of them!

Write In Ron Paul - Give an Angel Its Wings

“Every time a voter writes in Ron Paul, an angel gets its wings.”

Suddenly, Ron Paul Supporters Are Relevant

Relevant Ron Paul Supporters

When All Else Fails Blame the Paulbots

Andreatta Geerdes

(COMMUNITIES.WASHINGTONTIMES.COM) — Suddenly, Ron Paul’s supporters are relevant. You remember Ron Paul — that old Republican guy who ran for president. His non-interventionist foreign policy ideas were considered kooky during the Republican debates but have since landed him interviews on Fox.

He is the guy who barely cracked 10 percent in the primaries but managed to attract tens of thousands of people, from all walks of life, to his rallies during the primary season. People lined up to hear Paul speak about free-market economics and Constitutional government.

Yet his lively supporters were dismissed as “Paulbots” and “Paultards.”

But if Breitbart.com, Glennbeck.com and others are correct, the Republican nominee, Mitt Romney, may have difficulty defeating Barack Obama if the Paulies don’t fall in line and vote for Mitt.

If Ron Paul Were President… Would Anything Really Change?

What Would Really Happen If Ron Paul Were To Be Elected President?

Ron Paul at the 2007 National Right to Life Co...

President Paul?  (Wikipedia)

by Bill Sardi

(LewRockwell.com) So what would really happen if Ron Paul were as elected President?

President Paul would immediately push for $1 trillion cut in federal spending (per year, not the $3 trillion that Democrats proposed over 10 years with half of that from increased taxes.)

President Paul would have the authority as commander-and-chief to withdraw troops from overseas, within limits of treaty commitments which must be honored (US supplies defense for Saudi Arabia, many other nations.) To the extent possible, the US would cease being the world’s policeman and plunderer of foreign economies (Iraq, Libya). The US would cease being a war economy. President Paul would also push to…

Ron Paul, Nebraska and Our Stupid Media

Jack Hunter's Paultical Ticker on PATRIOTS AND PAULIES (Politics & News)

PAULTICAL TICKER with Jack Hunter (RONPAUL2012.COM) – I keep reading these stories about what happened in Nebraska yesterday, where phrases like “Ron Paul’s last stand” and reporters saying things like “it’s all over for Ron Paul” are used liberally.

This is stupid. These reports are stupid. They may be accurate in the immediate technical electoral sense, but are wholly inaccurate in the much more pertinent and larger sense when reporting on anything concerning Ron Paul and his very large, vocal and influential movement.

Mitt Romney's Top Political Campaign Contributors

PATRIOTS AND PAULIES (Politics & NEWS) – In essence, political candidates “are” the donations they keep. The top contributors to Mitt Romney’s campaign? Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse Group and Morgan Stanley.

KRISTI KIRK (PATRIOTS AND PAULIES POLITICS & NEWS) – Okay class, this is an easy one. There’s no doubt that the wishes of political campaign contributors ultimately influence public policy. In essence, political candidates “are” the donations they keep. With that in mind, which GOP presidential hopeful would you rather elect to office?

Ron Paul Ads Rack Up More YouTube Views Than The Other GOP Candidates Combined

From James Trent (Google Plus)

Are all super PAC ads created equal? Not according to Google Politics & Elections  who looked at YouTube viewer counts last March and found that Super PAC sponsored YouTube ads supporting Congressman Ron Raul are viewed more than YouTube content posted by super PACs (independent expenditure-only political action committees) for all the other GOP Presidential hopefuls combined.

A vote for Mitt Romney is a guaranteed vote and support to reelect Obama both which in turn, are votes for The Banksters and Wall Street Big-Money.

From the East Came the Feared Paulies

From the East came the feared Paulies. The villagers were frightened as rumors told of great changes.  What could they do as they only outnumbered the Paulies by over one hundred to one?

It Takes A Village

JAKE SEZ (THEPATRIOTSCORNER.COM) – There was once a village with the name of Establishment.  In the village of Establishment lived the rulers of a great republic.  The people in Establishment considered themselves rulers because they got to make the rules that everyone else in the republic had to follow. Everyone except that the rulers of Establishment.  They were usually exempt from many of the laws that the others had to follow.
