Ron Paul: The Election Shows “We’re So Far Gone, We’re Over the Cliff”

Ron Paul is the latest conservative to suggest Tuesday’s election shows the United States is too far gone.
Washington Times reported:

Rep. Ron Paul, whose maverick presidential bids shook the GOP, said in the wake of this week’s elections that the country has already veered over the fiscal cliff and he sees no chance of righting ship in a country where too many people are dependent on government.

“We’re so far gone. We’re over the cliff,” the Texas Republican told Bloomberg Television’s “In the Loop” program. “We cannot get enough people in Congress in the next 5-10 years who will do wise things.” The video can be seen at Bloomberg.

Mr. Paul, who is retiring after 12 terms in the House, said voters on Tuesday rejected Mitt Romney because he had opposed the government bailout of General Motors and Chrysler…

…”People do not want anything cut,” he said. “They want all the bailouts to come. They want the Fed to keep printing the money. And they don’t believe that we’ve gone off the cliff or are close to going off the cliff. They think we can patch it over, that we can somehow come up with some magic solution. But you can’t have a budgetary solution if you don’t change what the role of government should be.

    The GOP only has themselves to blame for letting a liberaltarian run in the primary. I doubt it’s a lesson learned considering the GOP establishment is hell bent on letting Communists take over the country without a fight.

    Paul is correct.

    All who voted for the obamster now are fluent in Greek. They will riot and burn if ANY cuts to their pig trough entitlements are even mentioned.

    We’ve gone over the cliff and have crashed and burned and all our glorious bureaucrats are having a bang-up time of it in the process.

  • Dale

    I agree that we’re over the cliff, we’re going to end up like Rhodesia did – ZIMBABWE. This country is unrecognizable beyond belief. The Conservatives are an even smaller minority than the Republicans are in this country. It will be IMPOSSIBLE to ever elect a Republican president ever again. It’s over folks, your country is gone.

    Ron Paul’s point is well taken, but I have to wonder how many Paulbots sat home on their ass effectively helping to re-elect the Obamination over spite?

  • Chris W.

    Well then you should have endorsed Romney.

    Romney’s hand can be forced into signing fiscally responsible legislation. Obama’s cannot.

    On second thought, retire now and go away forever Ron.

    It only means that GOP is not a viable player anymore – let them dick around with themselves and let’s organize around the only thing that still may unite us The Constitution on Anti Communist/Anti Muslim Fascist platform. We have nothing left to loose and nowhere else to go – No Pasaran!

    All of them. Paul who ran in the Republican primary wouldn’t even endorse Romney.

    They’re petulant children who want free drugs and the destruction of Israel, that’s all.

    Dr. Spaceman’s a what ?

    That’s the biggest laugh I’ve had in a long time.

    How many ego maniac libertarians sit these out?

  • raybojabo

    Thank God this two-faced gasbag is finally retiring. His Paulbots did more to derail conservatives than any Democrat because they worked from the inside out posing as Republicans. Go to Colorado or Washington and smoke your dope and join the other liberals.

    And NOW you all want to heed Dr. Paul’s warnings?!!!

    I was a delegate to the GOP convention. Had a conversation with a Paul delegate who faltly told me he was not voting for Romney or Scott Brown(he was from Massachussetts). Really pissed me off.

  • Look-Out

    OT–FOX just listed the most accurate POLLSTERS:

    #1 – PPP

    #2 – DAILY KOS

    Surprise, surprise…

    Obama benefited from time travel magic to move the Jimmy Carter effects of his policies beyond the 4 year span of his first term. He succeeded with such illusions as faking unemployment readings to project an appearance unemployment was slowly going down and a slow recovery poised to turn the corner at any moment.

    We never got Jimmy Carter inflation or interest rates either….No big stock market crashes…..NOW on 11/8 we have the Jimmy Carter misery index busting out all over . Gas rationing …The Carter system of odd even license plate numbers is now in place in NY and NJ. The full blown misery of Obamacare was also put off until after the election….

    Our timing was off in preaching about catastrophes to come….They have to hit for voters to act…. Romney’s campaign has at least positioned our party to benefit going forward as the Obamaland fantasy world collapses.

    Rasmussen did very, very poorly. They came in near the bottom.

    Btw, Nate Silver was awesome again this election, with a near perfect record. He predicted 49 of the 49 states that have been decided!

    Don’t mind telling you that I will never forgive a few people for not coming to the aid of their country by throwing their support AGAINST Obama by supporting Romney.

    Ron Paul……..Agree with about 90% of what you say but that 10% is an absolute killer. Anyone that could not find the decency to support ANY candidate against Obama is lower than dirt to me.

    Christie………be gone dirtbag. Rick Santorum……..never, ever could you convince me to vote for you after keeping on and on after you KNEW you were not going to win. I say you and Christie need to get together, throw a party, invite Ron, Nanny & Powell and then throw in a few Scoopers and you can continue to beat the crap out of Romney.
