Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan made a pitch to Ron Paul supporters during a rally in Lima, Ohio, on Monday when asked why libertarians should support the Romney-Ryan ticket.
"For those of us who would have voted in the primaries for, say, Ron Paul, why should we vote for you and not, say, libertarians or Vermin Supreme and the Pony Party or something like that?" a man from the audience asked during the question and answer session.
"Do you want Barack Obama to be re-elected?" Ryan asked. "Then don't vote for Ron Paul."

You gotta love Paul Ryan begging for Ron Paul voters to come crawling back after he just helped subvert the democratic process in his own party a mere month ago in Tampa.

Talk about taking their votes for granted. I think they just thought they could completely screw Ron Paul out of a fair shake in competing for the nomination and everyone would just be too stupid to notice.

As an Obama supporter, I am the opposite. Go ahead, vote Ron Paul-You have my full support.

It just blows my mind what people will believe. How does voting for someone else count towards the other guy? Why would it count for Obama and not Romney?
These politicians spill nonsense and people just lap it up not willing to even think that it doesn't make sense. If I was to vote for Ron Paul or even Gary Johnson then that is a vote for them. Not anyone else. There is no splitting the vote.

We need a third party, maybe we even need 5 or more party systems. Deciding between the lesser of two evils just isn't getting it.

I just thought about this. With the way Romney is running his campaign, how easy would it be for the RNC to blame a Romney loss on Ron Paul and Gary Johnson supporters? Great way to prevent more people from waking up is to fuel hatred and contempt for the ones that are awake.

I'd rather not vote at all.

Then don't vote, and if you are in fact not planning to vote, then stay out of political forums...........doesn't make any sense to have an opinion on politics if you aren't planning on doing anything with your opionion!

I am an Indy/Lean Dem voter.

Obama v Romney - I vote Obama.

Obama v Paul - I vote Paul.

The GOP has thrown away/doesn't want to win this election. (IMO)

I won't vote for Ron Paul.

I'll vote for Gary Johnson!

Take that Ryan and Mittens!

Johnson is polling at 3.5-6% in Ohio recently.. the highest a Libertarian has ever gotten is 1.5%

Actually not voting is a political statement and anyone expressing themselves that way, has as much right to express their opinion as you do.

Dear Ryan: If you're the alternative, then yes, I want Obama to stay in and Romney to stay the hell out. Don't tell me how to vote.

Don't presume to tell anybody that they aren't entitled to an opinion based on how they exorcise (or not) their right to have their say in the democratic process. SMH, the arrogance of some people never ceases to amaze me.

I will write in RON PAUL in bold caps and black out the other ass clowns with a sharpie.

I don't particularly want Obama to get re-elected and am not going to vote for him. Worse, I really don't want to see Romney get elected. I am not planning on voting for him either.

The Republican Party screwed-up big time with the way they treated Ron Paul, showing their true colors. They and the media continually said Ron Paul was not a threat, so why make the effort to marginalize him? They marginalize themselves. I hope Romney gets his butt reamed with sandpaper this November.

Gary Johnson likely has my support this season.

For those saying they will write in Paul ... you know write ins are not counted right?

Just vote for Johnson.

A vote for Ron Paul is a vote for Obama rather obvious:

Every vote that takes away from Romney will keep Obama in office,.

Come people the Ross Perot and Ralph Nader effect,.

Every vote that is taken from Romney is also taken from Obama. How does that keep Obama in office?

Gee, I would have guessed the GOP might have thought about that before convention time. Oooops!

I watched the RNC and I thought it was so great when delegates proudly announced their votes for Ron Paul, it was truly inspiring to see so many stand up to the two party system.

I do agree with others who posted previously though........the choice of two evils right now.
