This video is very upsetting to me, let me make this clear Kurt Bills endorsing Mitt Romney will have exactly 0% impact on how he votes if he is elected to the senate. He will stand with Rand Paul & be a leading voice for Liberty in the senate. The part that makes me upset is that there can be 1 small detail about a candidate that some Ron Paul supporters don't like and they have to come out with videos like this one smearing the candidate. If we are unable to support candidates like Kurt Bills then we shouldn't even bother voting at all.
Ron Paul told to vote his conscience...to do what he had to do. In other words he told him that he should not look to him to tell him what to do. The rest of it, about Ron Paul saying that he wasn't going to win the nomination etc. Kurt Bills simply added of his own accord. I believe that was Kurt Bills' own assessment based on which he decided to endorse Romney even though he is a Ron Paul national delegate.
The reason he says he will endorse Romney is because he needs the money to beat his Democratic opponent in November and to pay his people because he has run out of money.
Listen to the conversation and you will hear the hesitation after he said that Ron Paul told him to vote his conscience...to do what he had to do. After that point it is all Kurt Bills' own beliefs and assumptions on show. I imagine that Rand Paul had a similar conversation with his dad before he endorsed Romney. Rand however did not say that his dad expected to lose.
This may appear to be a betrayal by Kurt but one thing he did emphasise was that he will vote for Romney in the November election and this is what he considers to be an endorsement. It does not mean he will vote for Romney at the Convention to which he is a national delegate. He has acted rationally because like many he is assuming that Romney will be the nominee. That remains to be seen in my view and I personally believe that Ron Paul will be nominated and go on to be elected President.

There will never be another person who has a voting record like Dr.Pauls.
but he also told us he was "in it to win it" and would fight all the way through Tampa.
