By now you’ve seen Ron Paul’s response to Lindsay Graham’s flippant response at a town hall meeting when Graham blurted out that he wouldn’t let Ron Paul “hijack the Republican Party”. Graham also said the GOP will not be “the party of angry white guys”.

He said he was going to “grow the party” yet he finished his comments with “if you don’t like it you can leave!” Yeah, that seems like a good way to grow the party Lindsey.

Paul is going about his business defending the Constitution and bringing the GOP to young American patriots through the Campaign For Liberty. Paul educates with his books like his most recent “End the Fed” and last year’s “The Revolution: A Manifesto“. Meanwhile neo-conservatives and strangers to logic like Graham attempt to grow the party by shouting down those that would support them if they had any principles at all.

It is this lack of integrity and principle on display right now. Graham is the worst of the lot. Integrity, honesty, and principle are the ideological fuel to grow the Republican Party. That is the fuel of Ron Paul. Utilizing the Lindsey Graham infested fuel has already been attempted and failed.

Last time I checked John McCain wasn’t the President of the U.S. Although he could certainly be described as an angry white guy. Hmmm… maybe that’s who Graham was talking about after all.

In case you haven’t seen it already, here is the full video of the Graham town hall:

And here is the response from Ron Paul on CNN and MSNBC yesterday:

    By the way, it seems to me that Lindsey Graham is to Conservatives as Eric Dondero is to Libertarians.

    More proof for a 3rd party option. We need a fiscally conservative party that protects personal freedom. Both parties want to take away civil liberties and controll the masses in their own way and both parties spend money on special interests like drunken sailors.

    Go Ron, Enough is enough….. Keep the torch of liberty burning!!!!

    It is just a shame America is too stupid to elect this man president. He has more integrity in his little finger than Obama has in his whole body.

    It's amusing to watch neocons reacting to RP. Think back to the presidential debates and recall how the other candidates would react when he spoke. No surprises here w/ Graham.

    We MUST insist Ron Paul run in the next election. he is, perhaps, the last real hope for this nation. I've given up on the GOP – the powers that be have no regard for the desires of the PEOPLE! They are busy serving their own interests.

    Did anyone else notice the comment Miss Lindsey said? "…this will be a center-right party…" WTF! So this guy thinks he can tell people how it's gonna be? What a tool!

    Miss Lindsey, YOUR FIRED!!!

    That's how I first noticed Ron Paul. He was making Giuliani cry in the debates, and I wanted to find out more about this man who didn't fit in with the good old boys.

    The Consitution Party would be a good 3rd party option.

    Perhaps, if you're not turned off by the overt references to Christianity all throughout the planks of the party's platform…
