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.
