Ron Paul Won’t Endorse Romney, Cites More of Same

October 14, 2012

By: Javier David,

Texas Republican congressman Ron Paul pointedly refused to endorse his party’s presidential contender, Mitt Romney, arguing that neither he nor President Barack Obama would make necessary cuts to public spending that would avert a fiscal catastrophe.

“No,” the iconoclastic Libertarian bluntly told CNBC’s “Futures Now,” when asked about whether he was prepared to endorse Romney. He accused both the former Massachusetts governor and the president of being captive to similar interests.

“Both within the establishment where they need the Federal Reserve as lender of last resort to make sure that you take all the risk in the world,” Paul said. He linked the Fed — his favorite foil — and the Washington political establishment together as part of a “one party system” that refuses to make necessary but difficult choices to cut spending.

“I’ve been in this business a long time and believe me there is essentially no difference from one administration to another no matter what the platforms,” said Paul, a former hopeful for the GOP nomination. “The foreign policy stays the same, the monetary policy stays the same, there’s no proposal for any real cuts and both parties support it.”

He cast some doubt that the looming fiscal cliff would have the economic impact many market observers are warning about, adding that Congress and the White House would likely find a way to delay the inevitable cuts in spending and tax hikes.

“They’re not going to allow all those terrible things to happen on January 1, but they’re not going to solve the problem either,” Paul said.

    Paul could so much to help put Obama out of office. However, he would rather grandstand and stand in the limelight…

    Many state they will waste their vote by writing in Ron Paul… In such a close reace a few votes could make the difference.

    The time to push your ideas Paul is after Obama is sent packing. Get with it or get out of the way….

    Gary Johnson, who is an American businessman, a former Governor of New Mexico, and the Libertarian Party nominee for President, would be a great bet for 2016 (but the push needs to start immediately after this election, no matter the outcome). We really have no choice right now then to take Romney, just to get Obuthead out. Joel Skousen has videos on youtube that every American should watch. He explains in detail what has been going on in this country, the one world order, and sustainable communities, and backs his theories and opinion with facts.

  • Lindsey says:

    Mr. Cordell is exactly right. However, I will vote for Romney because there are only two choices here. The choices are bad or terrible so I will vote for bad. I wish people would wake up! I will campaign in 2016 for Rand Paul or someone like him. Ron needs to retire and hand the mantle over to his son.

  • At last a politician that tells you the truth, that’s why the Republican Party blocked Ron Paul from being our Presidential candidate, he tells too much truth. I’ve watched our Presidents since 1936 when I was 9 years old and watched Roosevelt run for re-election, I’ve researched our history since 1908 to analyze what presidents do, to see and realize, WE are in TROUBLE. The quest to lead all of the world to a One World Government, with appointed leaders, not elected. The Trilateral Commission Bilderberg RICH leaders decide the future of our nation should scare evey citizen of this nation, but 90% of our citizens have surrendered because they see no change in our freedoms regardless of who leads this nation, so many don’t even bother to vote. The Republican Party just laughs at Ron Paul, who does he think he is, Change America, not the plan of the Republican or Democratic parties. Onwards to the New World Order, to remove religion from all nations, to total submission to Sustainable Communities, with Totalitarian control. So citizens watch those sports, and comedy programs, and let our leaders sell our nation to the United Nations, learn to live with less, and keep your mouth shut. Just follow orders, your nation has been sold, learn to live with less, this is what you have let our nation become, because it’s just too much trouble to get involved. You could have elected me, or Ron Paul to Restore not Change this nation. Good luck, you’ll need it. God bless America.
