This is the Result When You Try to Ignore the Ron Paul Movement

You lose the election, end up pumping your own gas and looking like this.

"Mitt Romney at my local gas station [in La Jolla, California]... he looks tired and washed up," wrote Redditor/photographer mkb95.

  2. Ha! Another flip flop. Romney is clearly for legalizing a variety of currently illegal drugs.

  4. That is because his ideas are tired and washed up.

    I take great glee that Romney will forever be known as a LOSER LOSER LOSER.

    Good riddance Mitt. And good riddance GOP.

    1. Did you just step off the banana boat carrying in the new souls? What do ideas have to do with politics? It's not like its 4th century BC Athens here, and you may have the excuse of not being thoroughly jaded by the latest tyrant to promise free shit for the masses who back him.

  7. give the guy a break. frankly I'd rather be filling my own gas tank and recovering from a year and a half spouting horseshit while the winner is still on that treadmill.

  8. That reminds me, where is Rudy Giuliani these days?

  9. I have more respect for him now. He probably is an ok guy outside of politics.

  10. Many of the Ron Paul Supporters wrote his name in on their ballot. There must be millions of those votes. Is there any link where one could find the actual count? Or is keeping this a secret part of the agenda.

    2. 'sticks and stones will break my bones' and I sure

    3. Dude, I didn't vote for him either. But I also don't resort to insensitive religious insults on internet forums.

    4. 'Insensitive'? Dude grow a pair, the way the
      Romney and Republican Establishment treated Ron Paul and other candidates...all bets are off!
      And yes he must change his 'magical underwear'!
      Begone with you Satan!

    5. You sound like a real champ. How is it okay to insult the Mormon religion because "Romney and the Republican Establishment" treated Ron Paul poorly? You do realize those are two distinct entities? And you do realize that there are Democrat Mormons, Republican Mormons, and Libertarian Mormons, right? In fact, you happen to be insulting one of the libertarian variety right now. Don't be ignorant.

  12. Actually kind of feel bad for the guy, especially the way that the Repukeicans have tossed him under the bus multiple times in the last two weeks.

    I'm sure the same asshats who are watching the tires roll over Romney now are the same asshats who would have their lips planted firmly on Mitt's posterior had he won.

  13. ya'll keep thinking that he lost because of the RP crowd.. keep living in that false fact. If I were him, I would move to Switzerland and give up my american citizenship. or singapore

    1. The numbers of swing state Ron Paul voters in the primaries surpassed the vote totals he needed to win in that particular state from Virginia, Nevada, New Hampshire, Colorado, and others.

      Go cry neocon and keep telling yourself that you just need to have a non-white candidate to run as a republican to win from now on.

      Or you can jump on the liberty bandwaggon, but I doubt you can enjoy such a ride you silly statist.

    2. Somewhere on this site a few days ago a poster linked to the total Ron Paul primary votes and it was several million. I didn't even vote, and I'm sure many other RP supporters didn't either.

      Ron would've beaten 0bama by a landslide, but it would've destroyed the GOP. Phyrric victory much?

    3. I'm not a neocon, but I'm also NOT a conspiracy theorist wacko!.. I vote with my feet. I am an Austrian, in economics, so I supported and voted for RP on the primaries.

      It was one of RP's phrases that told me everything I needed to know. There are still people in this countries that want welfare and warfare; until that changes we will keep electing the same candidates.

      Also, as Huerta de Soto says, "if you see a society where politicias and people dislike or hate the rich class and penalizes them, then that is a society destined to poverty".

    4. Paul received over 2 million votes in the GOP primaries and had more primary votes in Ohio, VA, FL, and NH than the margin that Romney lost by in those states. That doesn't even include all of the non-GOP Paul supporters who refused to join the GOP to participate in the primary.

    5. Exactly. I should clarify that I didn't even vote in the primary. I saw the "writing on the wall" w/r/t how things were going to go. If Dr Paul had won the primaries prior to my state primary, I was going to fly back for the singular purpose of voting for him, but after the shenanigans I knew it was just a waste of money. My parents and brother did vote for him, and have sloooooooowly become libertarians due to his campaigns. Family dinners are much more pleasant now- I'm actually looking forward to Thanksgiving since 3/4 or more of the family members attending have become R

    6. Should read- have become Ron Paul fans. He has changed the nature of the political game more than we realize today.

  14. I'm just glad to see that CA hasn't outlawed self serve pumps. I went to NJ for the first time over the summer(New Brunswick) and they wouldn't let me pump my own gas. So then I tried to tip the guy who served me and they wouldn't let me do that either. So I went inside the station convenient store to buy a 12 pack and the State doesn't allow the store to sell beer. I'll never go back.

  16. It is a tragic thing when a true statesman like Mitt Romney isn't the president of choice. It really proves
    what a nation of spineless free-loaders we have become. Still, the difference between those who voted for Mitt and those who did not was a nit. We will soon look back in amazement wondering what Barak accomplished to make our nation better. JRH

    1. Really? Statist Man perhaps, but not statesman. He was a joke, with virtually no differential from 0bama.

  17. He looks like Will Ferrell in Anchorman after the "Go EFF yourself, San Diego" incident.

  22. How about just leaving Romney alone? The juvenile posting does nothing to enhance this fine site. BTW, why are there so many non-economics postings? Please don't try to be a Business Insider crappy blog.

    1. The reflections look pretty good. The amount of fuzziness seems consistant between the automobile and Romney.

      Besides, if you're going to go to the trouble to make a good photoshop, why would you pick a gas station?

  26. mitt had no "ideas" only positions. He was a political fraud and the worst parts of american greed personified. The re-election of obama is the best thing for this country right now. The people who hated him enough to elect this clown known as to replace him will keep paying attention.

    Besides when this country's economy goes down in flames I'd rather have obama as the public face instead of a private equity scam artist... I mean "capitalist" like romney, so that the socialists and the communists won't have a leg to stand on with their cries of "Evil Romney and Evil Capitalism".

    1. Exactly. Ron Paul probably could have educated the masses about why the economy was dying, but even then it would have been difficult. When the country is in even worse shape (providing we don't experience Weimar hyperinflation) 4 years from now the Socialists will have no one to blame.
