Your comment makes me wonder why you chose that particular post to reply to. Was it his message to keep at it despite the odds? A glimmer of hope you felt you needed to dash? Or perhaps your humanitarian instincts that compel you to urge people to not throw their vote away on the candidate of their choice because you feel he does not have a chance of winning? How commendable.
If it is all as hopeless as you and your confréres wish to convey then why waste your time? Do you visit Gary Johnson threads to pass along the same message, or to Jill Stein suporters? What prompts you to preach your endless "no hope" sermon on Ron Paul threads, a fear that his people can somehow effect the outcome of this election? Or are there some reservations or concerns you have about restoring liberty and the Constitution to America?
Despite the odds against Ron Paul becoming President of the United States of America there is still a greater chance of that outcome than your posts being able to persuade enough people to prevent it. What is your real point, reason, or agenda for continually posting this drivel?

If we split the vote, Obama wins.

Haven't posted here in awhile; lots of new faces around! To the OP, and all other nay-sayers: In an infinite universe, anything is possible. Is it, though probable that Ron Paul will win? No. Does that matter one iota? No. To the Ron Paul supporters: Forgive my arrogance for speaking for anyone but myself, but I think the following clip sums up rather well just how we feel about the good doctor.
We will NEVER be on the wrong side, again.
All this talk of wasted votes....here's how I see it: If you vote your conscience - even if your conscience tells you to vote for Micky Mouse; if you vote your conscience then you have not ever wasted your vote. Period.
The only way to actually waste your vote, is to let anything other than your conscience determine how you vote.
