What seems very, extremely difficult for people to understand is that there is a convention coming up in just two weeks that will seal the Republican
nominee. Though it is quite unlikely Paul will get that nomination there are a number of things that can happen there, and afterward Paul can decide
to go on, call it quits, or take an independent run at the election.
I like Gary Johnson and probably have more in common with his views, and in the absence of Ron Paul he would likely be my pick. However, Paul is the
stronger candidate and would most certainly do better in an independent run, unstoppable if he could secure the Republican nomination. Liberty-minded
folk will have a new strategy and the whole election campaign for all parties will be shifting gears very soon.
Paul has been a threat to established authoritarian powers and you no doubt saw him being marginalized by the media during the primary season. Many
are still fearful of his popularity and what an independent run could do to the balance of main-ticket voters. For that reason you see the media
spotlighting third-party candidates, especially on ones that could splinter away some of Paul's supporters. Independent voters that have any hopes at
all of taking the election away from the R's and D's will have to get behind one candidate, the strongest one they have when that time comes,
otherwise they haven't a prayer. We can still have fun "getting the message out" but it will be Obamney who will be telling us how things are going to
Both of the major-party candidates are pranking us with their outlandishness now in the attempt to herd the strays into one or the other major camps.
So fearful of giving Obama another four years or of the havok Romney/Ryan can play that indie voters are joining one side or the other in hopes of
preventing their "worst nightmare" from capturing the Oval Office until the next elections. Either of them that are currently the prime pick for us
will carry out the Big Agenda as given them and with little ad lib on their parts.
Gary Johnson is a good man. By the first of the month let's talk about him some more. Perhaps by then we will know if he is the one to get behind and
send to D.C.
