    The Libertarians might feel betrayed by this and the conspiracy theorists now think Rand is an NWO/Illuminati/Jesuit/Jewish/whatever else puppet. Still, it was the rational thing to do, even if Mitt Romney did win a majority of delegates, Ron Paul is far behind and cannot hope to catch up.

    I'm pretty sure he was planning to do this for awhile.

    Whatever shall we do. He's totally 1/2 a percent less likely to lose now.

    Ron Paul isn't campaigning anymore. He said it himself. He had Rand's Endorsement when he was a candidate. This is was bound to happen. In time Ron Paul will also endorse Mitt Romney. We really don't need a thread for this.

    I say rand Paul is being realistic. People like Alex Jones who attack him for this are retards. Sure he wanted his dad to win but right now Romney is the only viable alternative to Obama and he sees this.

    Alex Jones is an idiot. A conspiracy crazed idiot.

    As for Rand, you have to also remember he has a shot at VP. Doesn't look to good to not endorse your "running mate" does it?

    The rational thing to do would be to endorse someone who you agree with, not the person who is winning.

    But he agrees with Romney more than he does Obama. And that's how it's going to be in the end.

    If he thinks the benefits of Romney outweigh the negatives then he should endorse him, but if he doesn't, he shouldn't.
    What?

    By the end I meant the presidential election in November, when it will be Obama vs Romney. Sorry for my vagueness there. Unless of course you think that Ron Paul is somehow going to pull it out and win the nomination?

    Considering that the Libertarians believe that Romney is a corporatist-puppet , I can imagine this is a big blow to them. I guess it is kind of like when the CPUSA endorsed Obama. So you guys said that Alex Jones is basically calling rand/ron fakes/puppets now?

    Oh, I get you. I don't really pay attention to politics right now, but no, I don't think Ron Paul is going to win.

    Unless you are delusional like @crocve is, then you should know Ron Paul will not win.

    No this guy is straight up bonkers. He thinks Perry is a homosexual & that there is a huge presidential conspiracy in which none of our votes count, etc.
