Romney has chased off any hope of Paul supporters. Gary Johnson might now be the only hope of defeating Obama in the General. Romney cannot win!

From the YouTube description:


“I want to make sure that when the Republican Party loses, terribly
to, in my opinion, the worst president in history, I want [them to know]
it’s because they systematically shut out the most intelligent, most
youthful and active voting bloc in American history,” said Ron Paul
voter Mike Timoney.


Timoney’s statement accurately reflected the mood at PAULfest, a
celebration held by Congressman Ron Paul’s supporters at the Tampa
Fairgrounds on the weekend before the 2012 Republican National
Convention. With controversy surrounding the seating of GOP delegates in
several state conventions, many who caucused for Paul feel
disenfranchised by the actions of the GOP and vow to turn against the
party this election.


While certain attendees went so far as to call Mitt Romney a
“monster,” most of Paul’s youthful supporters exhibited more frustration
and disappointment than anger.


“[The GOP] made it clear yesterday that they see us more as a
nuisance than as potential allies,” said John Jones, one of 10 Ron
Paul-supporting Maine delegates that the RNC stripped of their delegate
status on Friday.


Libertarian Presidential Candidate Gary Johnson was a headlining
speaker at the event, which was in part sponsored by the Libertarian
Party.


“The frustration, I think, can get focused in a way that can impact
this election,” said Johnson. “And that would be, voting for me.”


Many Paul supporters at the event expressed support for Johnson’s
campaign, and even those who didn’t vowed not to vote for Romney.


“There’s no way I could support someone like him,” said Kenosha
Fisch, an Oklahoma delegate who lost her seat in a bitter power
struggle.


About 3:45 minutes.

    I think it is time we overhaul the party process and do away with parties all together. Totally open elections.

    No, because Romney is being positioned by the bankers to be their new puppet. Once someone has been selected by them its pretty much a foregone conclusion as far as "elections" go. The campaign donations don't lie.

    The republicans deserve to lose their party to the younger smarter generation who will be getting older and more active as the old arm chair republicans die off. Thank Christ !

    Ron Paul may just manage to see Romney elected with a slight majority. The slightness of it will be noted by the electorate. If a party doesn't feel strongly about their own candidate, why should the electorate? I find it amusing that Ann Coulter is livid at Akin (and no doubt Paul too) when last year she said if Romney is chosen, the repubs will lose to Obama. The republican party is in disarray and the people will be wary of the lack of confidence.

    The GOP can only blame itself for the lack of confidence. When you change rules in the middle of an election cycle to favor one candidate, it sends of a smell of deceit and corruption. Something that most are wanting to vote out of the WH.

    I may vote for Ofraud. The conservatives, repubs and neocons who support this NWO thug ORomney need a wake up call and 4 more of Ofraud may be just the ticket. Then again, they are so stupid they will still think another election will save them. Looks like only starvation in fema camps will awaken them.

    DON'T vote for O'Fraud, you will be compromising yourself.

    I am writing RON PAUL in. I will not play their game. At least if I end up in a FEMA Camp or drop dead after the elections, I know I stood true till the end and supported a man who is the real deal.

    Either one of them will achieve the same results. But I get your point.
