Ron Paul Supporters, Alive and Well in Ohio

By Juliet Eilperin
FINDLAY, Ohio -- Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tex.) may have largely receded from the national scene, but his adherents are still playing a role in the presidential election -- by interrupting political rallies.

As GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin addressed an enthusiastic crowd here, a lone protester started calling out "Ron Paul! Ron Paul!"

He continued shouting until nearby attendees began chanting, "John McCain! John McCain!"

For a few moments Palin continued speaking, as if unaware of the interruption. But just after the protester was taken out of the arena, the Alaska governor remarked from the stage, "If that was a protester they escorted out, they escorted him out a little bit early. I think that person would have learned a little bit..."

And then, cheers from the crowd drowned the candidate out.

Fight for The Constitution-Fight for your rights

We are fighting for "YOU"
Maybe you are unclear about what we are doing.
We (fighters for YOUR rights) are in this for the long haul.
We all know that more than likely Mr. Obama will be our next president.
We really do not care

We are planting seeds for the future.
That future may be realized in a decade ...
maybe a century ...
maybe a melliniem ...
We will not pick the time ...
It will pick us.

Keep seeking knowledge, if you do, I am sure you will see that freedom will
ultimately prevail. It is the only perfect system. The rest will eventually fail.

Fight for The Constitution-Fight for your rights

"E Pluribus Unum"
(meaning: out of many, comes one).

You Miss should get educated, you just got owned by an RP supporter!

Ha. What's hilarious is that 95% of these sheeple chanting "McCain McCain" didn't even support him in the primary. The most liberal republican Senator in all the land now has the un-wavoring support of people who claim to be "conservative". They love them some McCain right now b/c they've forgotten that his biggest allies are Ted Kennedy and the like. Heck, even Obama wasn't a sponsor of the Amnesty bill - McCain was. The phoney conservative republicans and their phoney conservative supporters deserve to lose.

"I think that person would have learned a little bit..."
That kind of arrogance from Gov. Palin and Sen. McCain (remember, "We'll miss you, Ron," at the Republican debate Ron paul was excluded from) will lose them the election.
They'll miss you in the White House, John. Not.

"They could have learned about the job of the Vice President! Ya see, the Vice President is in charge of the Senate..."

LOL @ "I think that person would have learned a little bit..."
I'll give you something to learn about - one of the prime causes of the first American Revolution: King George III of England outlawed the interest free, independent currency the Colonies were producing and using for themselves, in turn forcing them to borrow money from the central "Bank of England", at interest, immediately putting the Colonies into debt, and as Benjamin Franklin later wrote:
"The refusal of King George III to allow the Colonies to operate an honest money system, which freed the ordinary man from the clutches of the money manipulators, was probably the prime cause of the Revolution."

Sounds familiar?
