Ron Paul Bombshell: All US Elections Are Rigged

Ron Paul claims that all US elections are rigged, designed to pacify the American public

Ron Paul has told a national television station that he believes the entire American electoral system to be rigged, in order to keep independent thinkers from taking positions of power. 

The former Texas congressman said “I see elections as so much of a charade,” adding that elections are rigged and claiming that “so much deceit goes on“. reports:

Paul is no stranger to the twisted rules of the American presidential horse race. He ran for the highest office as a Libertarian in 1988, and in 2008 and 2012 as a Republican.

He arguably came closest to the nomination in 2012, when the GOP amended its party regulations to prevent the former Texas representative from stealing Mitt Romney’s thunder.

Rule 40(b) of “The Rules of the Republican Party” was changed so the Republican National Committee could “limit the visibility and power of libertarian-minded Texas Rep.

Ron Paul at the convention and thus present a unified front behind Mitt Romney, the presumptive nominee,” according to David Byler, an elections analyst at RealClearPolitics.

The rule requires that, in order to win the nomination, a candidate must have the support of a majority of delegates from eight states.

Although recent wins have tipped Sen. Ted Cruz past the cut off, the rule as written came close to helping Trump take the nomination. Paul warned that the GOP’s machinations to block Donald Trump are a sign of a corrupt, undemocratic system.

“I’ve worked on the assumption … for many, many decades, that whether there’s a Republican or a Democrat president, the people who want to keep the status quo seems to have their finger in the pot and can control things,” he said in the interview.

“They just get so nervous, though, if they have an independent thinker out there — whether it’s Sanders, or Trump or Ron Paul, they’re going to be very desperate to try to change things.”

Paul had nothing but scorn for Trump’s policies:

“He’s offering us nothing new, and he’s going backward in many ways.”

He suggested that the 2016 election is “a lot more entertainment than anything else” because none of the candidates “have answers” to modern political problems.

Even so, Paul interprets the success of these outsider candidates as a sign that “more people are discovering that the system is all rigged and voting is just pacification for the voters and it really doesn’t count.”

“I don’t think there’s an easy way out for the establishment or the parties,” he noted, explaining that Democrats and Republicans would both rather risk “further alienation of the people” than allow a candidate to succeed who could shake up the system.

Paul recalled his own 2012 encounter with Rule 40(b) as an important political lesson for both himself and the American people.

“I was upset about it but didn’t want to waste too much energy being angry because this is the way the system works,” he said. “It’s a rotten system.”

    Yeah, but it okay when he was in office being the beneficiary of the “system.” Folks like him always got crap to say when they leave office. If it’s that bad Ronnie, speak up while you’re IN office.

      Uh… you do realize that he spent his entire career calling out the government for their wrong doings… right? This isn’t new territory for him. He got into politics to try and fight the system…

      I’d say pick up a book, but you don’t even need to do that. Just search Ron Paul on youtube. You’ll find videos going back decades.

    But yet he was too weak to run 3rd party. His son too. Bitch about the system and then just roll over and walk away from the fight.

    • Stuart Holmberg

      they both still seem to be fighting

  • AlMart

    Mitt had no thunder to steal. It was the GOP’s operators that stole votes from Paul. A very dishonest article.

  • Thompson For Prez

    MKT Thompson For President… American Peoples Action Party. Rigged…that is an understatement. The parties bank role the candidates in Congress. If your not one of the boys your never heard from. The News Media chases the advertising money and could care who the candidates are. Its the Thriller in Manilar. And the people are given the right to vote for the hand picked clones that walk, talk, and tout only the party line. We are assured nothing will get done. There are over 250 signed up to run for President and you will not hear from any except the systems hand picked bull shit artists.
