Why is Ron Paul splintering votes in the Republican Presidential Candidacy run? Ron Paul is not just an innocent bystander so strongly convicted that he believes he’ll be the next Presidential Candidate for 2012. There is a behind the scenes strategy that is very likely is a pay back against Newt Gingrich.
When Newt was Speaker of the House, he didn’t support Ron Paul’s run for Congress and Ron Paul decided it was payback time. In 1996 the Republican Party wined and dined Greg Laughlin a Democrat encouraging him to change parties. At the same time Paul was making a comeback thinking he’d be running against Greg Laughlin (Democrat.)
Laughlin switched from Democrat to Republican and of course Newt and the Republican Party backed Laughlin. Paul was irate about two things: (1) The Republicans backed Laughlin who had switched parties; (2) Newt was a strong supporter of Laughlin (New Republican convert.) But what Ron Paul hasn’t shared with anyone – Ron, much like Laughlin switched parties too going from a Republican to Libertarian. Switching parties isn’t a crime Ron!
“Paybacks are hell,” and Ron Paul is delighting in the fact that he along with Mitt Romney gave Gingrich a good dunking in Iowa and New Hampshire.
The ads in Iowa were of vile, vicious, non-factual information against a fellow Candidate. Paul and Romney spent millions in Iowa attacking Newt – in fact most Iowans couldn’t flip on the TV or radio without hearing or seeing the smear tactics against Newt.
Neither Romney nor Paul lost any sleep over their behavior in Iowa or New Hampshire, because together they derailed Newt or so they thought until the Republican Debates January 16, 2012.
Ron Paul is somewhat like Obama, what you see isn’t really what you get. Ron seems to have a fettish for the Liberals. Here are some of the reasons the Liberals are playing footsey with Paul. He’d definitely end the war on drugs and decriminalize marijuana. He’s anti-war and has promised to shut down military prisons like Gitmo.
Paul and Barney Frank co-authored an article for Huffington Post presenting a task force that would recommend a trillion dollars in tax cuts from our Military. Here’s the article July 6, 2010 on Huff Post and David Horowitz.
Paul strokes the backs of the Wall Street Protestors referring to their destructive and dangerous protests as a peaceful assembly allowing protestors to shout their grievances to the Government.
Anyway you shake it, Ron Paul is Mitt Romney’s best friend and so far has insured that none of the other Presidential Candidates can take over the lead; Paul knows what he’s doing – the question is what are his real motives?
