Mitt Romney's public appearance was greeted by Ron Paul supporters
today, according to tweets and photos from the scene. This is pretty
much the norm these days — but for he fact that today's event was held
in Gdansk, Poland.

Poland is one of many countries outside the
U.S. that, despite never having Paul on any ballots, have Ron Paul
contingents. The main website, RonPaul.pl,
includes information about Ron Paul's campaign, primary dates, even the
current time in Texas, where Paul is from. The banner: "Kim jest Ron
Paul?" ("Who is Ron Paul?")

The group has garnered 2,000 likes on
Facebook. Today won't be the last we see of them: tomorrow, when Romney
will be in Warsaw, there will be a planned demonstration outside his event.

Other international Paulite factions include Germans for Ron Paul,
South Africans 4 Ron Paul Revolution, Australians for Ron Paul, France
for Ron Paul 2012, and Serbia for Ron Paul.

According to Polish
politics reporter Michal Kolanko, the banner was made by supporters of
Kongres Nowej Prawicy (Congress of the New Right), which Kolanko
described as a "libertarian/right wing party led by eccentric Janusz

"These guys are extremely vocal on the internet
(as ron paul fans) and not that numerous during elections. KNP in the
last parliamentary elections (October 2011) got 1,06%," Kolanko said in
an email.

    One of the Polish newspapers says: "Romney's officials were trying to hide the Ron Paul supporters' banner with umbrellas". I wasn't there but now I can see they are holding the umbrellas really high.

    Ron Paul: A true leader for the world
    I have seen many posts on the internet from other countries that are giving a lot of support to Ron Paul. Many can't believe we are so blind as not to have him as the Republican candidate instead of a cookie cutter chosen by the RNC. It's Ron Paul or we all lose and this may be the last chance for the US to make a comeback.

    More and more people from all over the world are waking up to the fact that the NWO types (and their seat of power, the U. N.) are trying to control EVERY ONE and EVERY THING. Just as our Founders generation spread the word of Liberty 230 years ago, today, those People are hearing those words of Liberty from Ron Paul, and they are responding. Thank you Poland!

    Ron Paul isn't running for president; Romney is. Let's play with the cards we were dealt.

    I had no idea Ron Paul had this kind of worldwide support.
    Never saw that before.

    Ron Paul had this kind of support in foreign countries even before the previous election. It is just not something that the MSM wants you to know. Just look at how much they have censored him here in the USA.

    I love this. The Age of Technology connects people from all corners of the earth. We can now interact with citizens of other countries and we find that we share common miseries that transcend shore lines and deserts... and those miseries come from government edicts. We are part of a global community and even Chinese are getting whiff of that. The Russians protested Putin's re-election loudly and got much support from as far away as Central America villages, which has seen its share of oppression.

    Great post, rodmatheny.

    I'm fine with you voting Green or true Conservative party too. Just don't waste your vote on another Goldman Suks crook for 4 years.

  • Farnsworth Defendn... 2012/08/01 23:31:48
    pass, I'm not wasting my vote and assisting Obama back into the WH
  • Defendn... Farnsworth 2012/08/01 23:48:19
    Great! Hope you´re not wasting your vote to get another Goldman Suks crook with the same policies in there also.

  • Farnsworth Defendn... 2012/08/02 00:12:34
    I'm voting to rid us of Obama.
  • Defendn... Farnsworth 2012/08/02 16:27:42
    And help a new crook in office?
  • Farnsworth Defendn... 2012/08/02 17:29:27
    meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

    anyone is better than Obama
  • rdmatheny Defendn... 2012/08/02 19:03:08
    You can't reason with these wacko O'Romney supporters. They're nuts and delusional.

    Guess you're right, his last two sentences sum it up.
  • Powa69Haus Farnsworth 2012/07/30 22:01:03
    That makes less sense than american Ron Paul supporters helping Obama win, We were NEVER going to vote for Obomney and they CANT. Idiot.

  • Farnsworth Dr. John 2012/07/31 02:12:24
    Paul supporters are the real Obama supporters. I'm not wasting my vote on a person who has zero chance of removing Obama.

    Don't care for Mitt, but he's a has a heck of a lot better chance to get rid of Obama......

    and please spare me all the Paul talking points, I have heard them all and believe none of it.
  • Dr. John Farnsworth 2012/08/01 07:08:48
    Dr. John
    Well, it IS a lot easier to go along with the crowd, to toe the party and the MSM line than to back the person who the party and the MSM tells you not to back.
    It is easier that way. And if Romney doesn't win you can just blame it on someone else.

  • Farnsworth Dr. John 2012/08/01 11:26:40
    you can resolve it anyway you want to get through the night, but in a close election the 2 or 3% the dynamic duo pulls will be enough to throw the election to Obama.

    save any further talking points, heard them all. Same only song and dance.
  • Dr. John Farnsworth 2012/08/01 21:31:34
    Dr. John
    I will vote for what is right and NOT who someone else tells me to vote for. You will vote for who the RNC tells you to vote for. Just like stuck-in-the-rut democrats will vote for who the DNC tells then to vote for.
    If the "few" votes that Paul gets make that much difference, then my guess is Romney is not all that popular and the RNC and the the MSN are full of crap, just like the brainwashed stuck-in-the-rut republican voters.
  • Farnsworth Dr. John 2012/08/01 23:33:13
    we are stuck in a rut, I don't like that I have no choice but to vote for Romney. But Obama has to go
  • Dr. John Farnsworth 2012/08/02 06:21:45
    Dr. John
    We all have a choice. Yours is the MSM/NWO choice. Mine is the NOT the MSM/NWO choice. If you can sleep with your choice, fine, that's all well and good, more power to ya. I know that I can sleep with mine.
  • Ev Rom Farnsworth 2012/07/30 23:56:19

    Yes because Republicans were too stupid to pick the best candidate, the man who could beat Obama.
  • Farnsworth Ev Rom 2012/07/31 02:13:35
    I agree with part of your statement.

    Paul has ZERO chance of removing Obama, he does however have a good chance of becoming head dog catcher.

    If the Obomney puppet dares to show one of his two sided faces in the Netherlands, I'm gonna try and get a rotten tomato where it belongs ;-)

    Ron Paul: A true leader for the world
    an international phenomenon-

    now i wonder why???

    what could paul represent...
    that so appeals to folks???

    liberty from govt-

    the very thing other nations used to respect about us-

    take note...
    rp is an outsider...
    in the realm of U.S.govt...
    while he has the respect of freedom lovers worldwide-
    how curiously odd-
    other peoples used to feel so...
    about our leaders-

    my...how our leadership has fallen...

    do you think our country's media...
    had anything to do with his reputation in america???
