Ron Paul gets endorsement from five members of Romney’s family? What do you think about this?

Texas Rep. Ron Paul on Monday announced that five distant relatives of rival Mitt Romney’s family are endorsing his Republican presidential campaign.

A news release from the Paul campaign boasts of having the support of Ty Romney, Travis Romney, Chad Romney, Jared Romney and Troy Romney. Three of the Romneys — who live in Idaho — will speak on Paul’s behalf during the state’s caucuses on Tuesday.

“I support Ron Paul because he defends the Constitution, loves America and understands what it means to be an American, including the right to live your life any way you want as long as you respect others,” said chiropractor Travis Romney, a second cousin once removed from Mitt Romney.

This isn’t the first time a family member of one of Paul’s rivals announced support for the libertarian-leaning candidate from Texas. Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum’s nephew, John Garver, penned a column for The Daily Caller endorsing Paul.

    Look at the top comment by a user with a long history of anti-semitism.

    At what point do the decent Ron Paul supporters expel the communists and Jew-haters from your ranks?

    Probably never.

    This is why Ron Paul had a disastrous super Tuesday.

    This is the premier libertarian online magazine admitting the Ron Paul movement is over.

    Who cares? If you look hard enough, your could probably find a couple of distant relatives that still support John Huntsman. There may even be a democrat in the family.

    Republicans who aren't ready to throw in with the rest of us libertarians should see Paul as a moderate position by comparison to Gary Johnson, and the only true republican running.
  • FanOreilly 2012/03/07 00:58:18
    Code Pink commie scum LOVES RON PAUL!

    Do you see the scum-bags that support Ron Paul?

    Dump that loser.
  • Odinsown FanOreilly 2012/03/07 01:51:57
    I don't agree with a lot of what club pink says, but being anti war, anti imperial, and pro peace doesn't seem a reason to hate a candidate.
  • FanOreilly Odinsown 2012/03/07 03:24:49

    You share talking points with commies.
  • Odinsown FanOreilly 2012/03/07 03:32:12
    And thousands of libertarians, and free market economists, and tens of thousands of American troops. Being anti war doesn't make you a commie, or non patriotic, it just means I want my friends to die old and in bed versus at the end of an AK 47 in some unjust not needed war.
  • FanOreilly Odinsown 2012/03/07 03:33:51
    Being a commie makes you a commie.

    The choice is not between peace and war it is between which war you will fight.

    Nice company you keep.
  • Odinsown FanOreilly 2012/03/07 04:00:20
    So am I a commie? Or do I just hang out with them? And why do we have to fight a war at all? Why isn't peace an option? Why can't we let other nations govern themselves?
  • FanOreilly Odinsown 2012/03/07 14:17:54 (edited)
    I don't know if you are a commie.

    Try to keep up:

    You wrote: "Being anti war doesn't make you a commie"

    Straw man, I never said you were a commie so I wrote: "Being a commie makes you a commie."

    Clear now?

    Awww shucks, Wally hurted ma feelings.
  • Odinsown FanOreilly 2012/03/07 14:31:09
    Ah ok. Well that is true being a commie does make you a commie.
  • FanOreilly Odinsown 2012/03/07 14:33:23

    Sadly some people do not see the point I am making.

    I never called Ron Paul a white supremacist but clearly they support him.

    So you need to decide why you are following a man supported by white supremacists and communists.

    I can tell you why.. I dont follow him, but support his message, and platform. Because he is for REAL spending cuts, and is a TRUE fiscal conservative, something you RINOs have forgotten all about.
  • FanOreilly Deeno (... 2012/03/07 14:37:18

    You follow Ron Paul like a disciple.

    Ron Paul is a pork-lover so you can keep telling lies about fiscal conservatism all you want.

    RINO? LOL! I haven't changed in 40 years. You little hipsters have.
  • Deeno (... FanOreilly 2012/03/07 14:55:31
    Deeno (AKA Freedomwatcher)

    You follow Bill O'Reilly like a disciple

    O'reilly is a War lover and muslim gneocide supporter so you can keep hiding like the lib you are

    Yes you are a RINO, you love big government and big government spending.

    Has Ron Paul ever voted for deficit spending or an unbalanced budget? You can't answer and I bet you won't, you will just dodge like the good little programmed lib you are.
  • FanOreilly Deeno (... 2012/03/07 15:33:19
    >War lover and muslim gneocide supporter

    How the lies continue.

    You are not helping your candidate.
  • Odinsown FanOreilly 2012/03/07 14:44:03
    The fact that they both support different aspects of pauls campaign is an interesting point. He hasn't put forward any communist or racist policy or legislation though, that says to me that they must agree with his policies on a level separate from theory own politics. Being racist doesn't mean you don't believe in free markets, or sensible foreign policy, or any other of pauls policies, it just means you are an ignorant bastard who happens to support something that makes sense. I can't speak for them, but maybe the antiwar left, and the racist far right like his smile? Oh and I support Gary Johnson for president.
  • FanOreilly Odinsown 2012/03/07 14:46:21
    There is something fundamentally wrong with Ron Paul.

    I support 75% of his policies but the 25% I disagree with is a deal-breaker.
  • Odinsown FanOreilly 2012/03/07 14:47:53
    Ok, so I know you disagree with his foreign policy, fair enough not everyone will agree on how best to make us safe. What else don't you like?
  • FanOreilly Odinsown 2012/03/07 15:18:11
    I agree with non-interventionism to the extent that we do not poke our nose in other people's business but allowing Iran to get nukes is suicidal and rooted in a hope that Iranians kill Israelis.

    I agree with the smallest government possible but claiming to support small government while lobbying for pork is hypocrisy.

    I agree with individual liberty but if you don't defend the right of the unborn to live then you are not really pro-life are you?
  • Odinsown FanOreilly 2012/03/07 15:31:53
    So I don't agree with you on Iran, but when did he start lobbying for pork? I don't touch the abortion issue.
