Wow, really? You sure have bought the propaganda hook line and sinker. People like you are exactly the reason the government has been able to take our freedom little by little. You let them.



Really? I understand how putting a Democrat in the White House would help cause this erosion of freedoms, but are you suggesting electing the GOP absolutely puts a stop to this? They are both just opposite bookends propping-up the same old stories. They are both mostly corporate tools.

Now and then you can find someone above all that and from either party.

Even if Ron Paul isn't listed on the ballot, there is a space where you can write in who you want to be president, and that's where I will be writing his name in.

So you're voting for Obama then?

I will vote for Ron Paul, so please add that option OP.
I will write his name in if need be, or scream it from the voting booth.
Piss on all the others, they are all the same.
Period.

I'll probably be voting for Newt!

Second line (and don't try to "educate me" about RP.) It's not going to work so save your breath. I'm answering the OP's question, not debating with paulites on this thread!

"Pretty Clear"?

Was there an announcement from the GOP or someone?

What did I miss?

Not at all, if the voting system takes my vote and illegally attributes it to Obama, well there's nothing I personally can do about it, however my vote will still remain with Paul. I've always hated the fact that instead of a majority rules vote we have that ridiculous system called the "electoral college"...which should have been done away with long ago. Our system should be he who gets the most votes from the people wins. Period.

I (at this time) will have to go with (d) other; why?....because I am undecided....I may not be fully decided until voting day.

Why do you think it is clear to everyone that (Ron Paul) won't win....he still has a chance...how?

The (write-in) vote. In history other candidate have won...with (write-in) votes.

a) Vote Republican (Newt or Mitt)
b) Vote Obama
c) Don't Vote
d) Something else (please explain)

Can we just try and have a little poll, without too much arguing (for a few hours at least :lol
?

FTR: I'm voting "b".


A and B cancel each other out since they're essentially the same.

C is an option not to give A or B any more votes.

D is "Mickey Mouse" for all we know

I pick E...Ron Paul.

Answer; Obama. As a former member of and very active with the Republican party, I now am a recovering Republican. I've always voted for the person not the party. I have never felt either major party agreed with all my positions on issues, policy or style, but long ago the GOP came close. So now I like to think I'm a sober independent (small ï"intentional). The Republicans are so far to the right it disgusts me. And frankly ideology aside, they just can't seem to put any candidates forward, (RP excluded and Huntsman before he dropped out) who have a brain, but are hypocrites, religious fanatics, or lying egomaniacs. (I do agree with many of Ron Paul's positions but not all, specifically when it comes to foreign affairs. Head stuck deep in the sand on that one)

Given that the Republican Congress stated from the get go their ONLY issue (since they have done nothing unless you take the issue they made over gays getting married. Christ, we have REAL issues to worry about) is to get rid of Obama. The 2010 Congressional election brought us the biggest bunch of clueless, idiotic ideologues in my 52 year life time.

RP has 0 chance getting the Republican nod, which is much better than his chances as a third party candidate.

This mindset permeates your thread, and is probably why you have 1 flag and little support. Your intentions are transparent. This is not a poll, just a hit piece on Ron Paul.

No, Romney or Gingrich would continue the erosion, just in a different way. I will be writing in Ron Paul if he does not get the nomination. If he is really concerned for this country, he will in fact run as a third-party candidate. A Dem/GOP matchup without Ron Paul would be a charade at best.

What bothers me is that people still believe what they hear on TV and defend Obama like he is some kind of savior.

Recovering Republican? That's like saying you're a recovering alcoholic but you're now a user of heroin.

Get your mind out of the theatre it is mired in and see the truth.

Neither party has our best interests in mind. Ron Paul is being suppressed because he is right. No one in either party wants him elected because everyone else has been chosen for the job, no matter who wins. Paul is a threat to the power structure and THAT is why we should vote for him.

Ohhh you didn't; snap!

Do you actually think I give a # about flags?

As for it being an attack on RP, it's not, but let me be clear, RP is by far the most dangerous person, to Democracy and the American way of live, running. He'd happily replace democracy with an unelected Cabal of business leaders. I'm with Chomsky, (US) Libertarianism is a basically pro-tyranny of the rich over everyone else.

Its like saying your all free from the protection the government offers, which means he strong would eat the weak. That's the opposite of what the constitution is about.

You start a thread discounting Ron Paul and give ATS users a choice of Romney, Gingrich or Obama. And then snark at Ron Paul with no evidence of your assertions through the thread.

The other poster is right, THIS is why you only have 1 flag.

He may not, but you have no verifiable evidence he doesn't presently. If you're going to make a thread based on your opinion and then make the 'rules' of your stupid 'poll' based on that opinion...what do you expect?

A respectful tone from people?

LOL Get outta here
