But I think if they break the rules this time, it will be their last. I want to see them be stupid enough to do this. "go ahead, make our day"'.
I feel political change is coming.

Because 'this time' he wanted to show his son how to be on a winning team, so imo sold out the conscious vote. Bad example to set for your son. I would rather do all I could to defend this moment in time for my children than to say a couple years down the line "I am sorry".

Just a quick look and I can understand how he was a valiant warrior for liberty, life, family, friends and above all love.

en.wikipedia.org...

If Ron Paul had been elected sooner he would not have died far removed from his closest loved ones and friends. Again apologies.

"True'r words were never spoken"

If you or any others wish to read the truth behind Pat's legacy and his death, may I suggest two books:
"Where men win glory" by John Krauker , as well as "Boots on the ground by dusk" by his mother Mary Tillman

I find it incredible Ron Paul doesn't understand how big his online support is, worldwide. Out of any politician anywhere, he owns the internet and no one else.

Let's go Dr. Paul, make a 3rd party run, whatcha got to lose?


A bunch of dough.

If he had been given a fair deal during the process I would agree with you.

He has much more support than you think.

I was talking to another delegate last night about this. He could run as the VP on the Libertarian ticket and Johnson could just resign after the election. He's on all 50 ballots,

He spent all day yesterday putting up signs for GOP candidates, and didn't talk to one person who was for Romney, not one.

Yeah that will be a winning combination. Listen Ron Paul is not going to be elected President. He does however have the potential as a third party candidate to hurt one of the other candidates in the election. Which one would it be?

We live in exciting times indeed.

Something is brewing.

Do you really think that repeating that same old drivel will convince me?

I'm done letting other people decide my candidate for me, this one is all mine.

I noticed a post early in the thread bringing up the possibility that it was too late for him to go 3rd party. The only response to that post was a mention of Paul going Green party being a good idea.

So I will ask this question a different way - under what circumstances is Paul still able to actually get on the ballot? I believe it is a state-by-state thing, but I'm not familiar with election law in terms of ballot eligibility and timing.

I always figured Paul's real run would be as an Independent - but heard somewhere its too late to get on the ballot that way. So any ATS election law/ballot requirement experts out there who can clarify?

Edit to Add: It was actually the first reply post

Third Party registration is still open in Alabama, Arizona, Mississippi, New Hampshire, North Dakota, and Rhode Island.

What party would RP be running on? Whatever it is they need to be on every ballot in all 50 states, I believe only the Libertarian party has that.

If he's willing I'm in!
Although I fear what will happen if he does,because we know he could very well win this election.The Republicans will go ape-sh*t if he runs third party.
What concerns me is how far will the establishment go to put their man Romney in office?
What will they do?

Nitezshe said that a man's duty is; to do only what he can actually do.

Dr. Paul said in the clip in Corporate's post that he wouldn't run third party.

Primus 2012 reviewed the situation pretty well
www.abovetopsecret.com...

Dr. Paul made alot of minds. Minds are the only way to humanize the future.

I do not understand your position at all. If you were not supporting RP for what he stood for...then why were you? ...Romney doesn't stand for anything that Ron did so...why cop an attitude if Ron feels compelled to continue to keep the Constitution and Liberty movement alive...you have me extremely confused. If he endorses Gary Johnson, that is a good thing. If Jim Gray steps aside and lets Ron have the Libertarian VP candidacy...that's a freaking awesome thing! How can you support the guy then and not now? Are you just trapped in the Republican thing or what?

It's pretty simple. I wanted Ron Paul with the best chance to win. I'm NOT going to vote LP again, as I have done so for the past 3 elections. I can vote principal all day long, and be marched into a g-damn freight car to a gas chamber, saying "Hey, at least I voted for Ron Paul", or I can at least try and slow the hell that is Obama.

Like the Libertarian Party, I was born in 1972. In my entire LIFETIME, I have ONE LESS electoral vote than the LP has received....TOTAL! Yes, they've only received ONE electoral vote in their entire history. SOURCE And you think that Ron Paul has a chance in hell? Seriously? And, don't give me this "If everyone feels the way you do, then he won't." crap. I'm tired of it, and spent the last 12 years voting LP, and look what we've got...Bush..then Obama. No thanks!

I would love Ron Paul to WIN, but he has about as much chance as you or I. So, that leaves Obama or Romney. I'd rather nail my "you know what" to a burning building than see another 4 years under Obama. You may agree, disagree, whatever, but that's my opinion. Perhaps if the LP could get more than 1% of the total vote, I may be more willing to take a chance again.
