We live in a bad time where American citizens don’t even have rights and that they can be killed. But the gentleman is trying to tell the truth about what’s going on, he is not defecting, there’s no signs of that happening. It’s a shame we’re in an age where people who tell the truth about what the government is doing gets into trouble.
Former Rep. Ron Paul • Offering a comment on Edward Snowden, the NSA whistleblower who is believed to be a major Paul supporter. Snowden’s civil liberties focus is very much in line with the former presidential candidate, whose son Rand has become a prominent senator. It’s been a while since Ron’s been in the news. The last time, he was trying to use the United Nations to seize the right to his namesake domain.

Respect for the principles of democracy; respect for the states to make decisions on matters that primarily affect the residents of those states; the chance to conserve scarce federal financial resources — these we believe are many strong reasons for you to defer to the state decisions.
Rep. Barney Frank and Rep. Ron Paul • In an open letter to President Obama, asking that his administration not interfere with recently passed ballot measures that legalized the recreational usage of marijuana in Washington and Colorado. The retiring House members have both long been advocates of reforming existing drug laws, and have repeatedly introduced federal decriminalization legislation in the past. The Department of Justice and Drug Enforcement Agency have remained relatively mum on the new laws, outside of signaling disapproval, though many expect to hear some word on the federal government’s stance in the days and weeks ahead. source

Yes, he can! After failing to win the hearts of Republican primary voters, former New Mexico GovernorGary Johnson will appear as the Libertarian Party’s presidential candidate on 47 states’ ballots this year. While we feel confident that Johnson won’t win the presidency, it’s not unfeasible that he could have an effect on the outcome. As Politico points out, 2008 Libertarian candidate Bob Barr received over 25,000 votes in North Carolina last cycle. John McCain lost the state by less than 15,000. (Photo credit: AP).

If you’re trying to win a presidential campaign and put on a show, you shouldn’t poke a sharp stick in the eye of conservative activists. That’s what happened.
Dudley Brown, Colorado GOP delegate • Speaking on a feud between Ron Paul supporters and the rules committee at the Republican National Convention. Basically, one of the key methods the Paul campaign used to try to stay relevant in the race was to try to elect more of their own supporters as delegates, after the conclusion of a state’s vote. If this seems strange, you might not be alone in thinking so – the allegiances of the delegates weren’t actually bound to the outcome of the vote. There’s two ways to look at this, which encapsulate the fight between Paul’s backers and the party writ large. The first is that voters likely do believe that their primary vote has an iron-clad impact on who their state votes to nominate, and that to do otherwise is less truly democratic. The other view, which Paul supporters are understandably motivated by, is that the newly approved rules (which would indeed bind delegates to the primary vote) will make it much harder for long-shot candidates like their own, in the midst of a two-party system that already leaves those odds in the near-impossible range. source (viafollow)

It wouldn’t be my speech. That would undo everything I’ve done in the last 30 years. I don’t fully endorse him for president.
Rep. Ron Paul • Explaining why, despite being given an opportunity to do so, he’s chosen to avoid speaking at the Republican National Convention. Paul would’ve been given the opportunity to speak as long as his words were a) vetted by Romney and b) in endorsement of the Republican nominee. No dice. Instead, Paul held an event of his own Sunday, bringing the true believers down to the University of South Florida to hear Paul’s final presidential campaign speech. This is likely Paul’s last big hurrah as an elected official — having just turned 77, he retires from Congress in January — but he leaves an army of supporters behind.

If they’re not willing to say that — that’s their prerogative — but clearly they’re not Mitt Romney delegates.
A national Republican Party leader • Discussing an issue with Republican delegates in Massachusetts — sixteen Ron Paul backers who defeated Mitt Romney’s picks — who were disqualified after failing to file affidavits pledging their support to Romney. The delegates say the affidavits were a ploy, and they were received the forms less than a week before the set deadline. Republican leaders are reportedly concerned that the Paul-supporting delegates may cause trouble at the Tampa convention next month. Paul has officially stopped campaigning, but his supporters hope to make their presence known at the convention.
