Ron Paul 2012: Time to Run as an INDEPENDENT?Submitted by Treg on Fri, 10/01/2010 - 12:20
In the history of Presidential Races, a few in my lifetime have had an Independent in the mix.
The wonderful thing has been in the final months of the Presidential election, the Independent has been up there on the stage, debating one on two with the Democrat and the Republican.
When all eyes turn to the election in the final 3-4 months, having the national "choice" be between three candidates, the voting public reports time and again that they are happy to have 3 choices, rather than just 2.
With the voting public thoroughly dissatisfied with both Congress and the two major parties, more than any time in history, ... this just may be the year of the independent Presidential candidate. More then ever, a 3 choice might just be the voting public's way of saying to the two parties, "we reject you both! You both have screwed up!"
John Anderson tried it.
Ross Perot tried it.
Pat Buchanan tried it.
The question is... Will Ron Paul try it?
The GOP race is already set. It will be Romney.
The only question is for Sarah Palin. Does she want to run as VP again? Certainly Mike Huckabee wants the offer, but he won't get it until Sarah makes up her mind. And the GOP will not offer it to Sarah until she (and Glenn Beck) delivers the Tea Party to the GOP. Fox news has done its bit by giving both Huckabee and Palin their own TV shows. (Ron got nothing--throw him to the Fox business financial news on very late night and very Earlie Morning news casts and let those RP crazy whore the video to their friends on the web).
That is the only inside game going on; who is the VP?. Romney is the GOP choice and will get all the money, time and support. Michael Steele is under pressure from all sides because of this one single thing, he has not said privately that he backs Romney....so Steele may be gone and replaced with Newt/Huckabee/Palin, ie the one who fails to get the VP go-ahead.
Bechtel Corporation, the owner of the Republican Party (recall folks the party is private organization and is owned by someone) has met extensively with Romney, and he is as on board with "the war on terror" more than Bush Jr ever was. Huge Contracts for Bechtel and the rest? You betcha. As for Jim DeMint, Ron Paul, Newt Grinrich, and all others, they are the side show colors that will be used USED by the media to make Romney appear as the "reasonable & logical" choice. The recent Gallop poll of 908 republican voters and hundreds more like that will be used to TELL THE VOTERS who "their" choices are. For you young guys/gals under 40, I know it my be hard for you to see, but this is how it is.
So come 2012 the American Choices will be:
#1) Democrat Party -- Barack Obama/Biden
#2) Republican Party -- Mitt Romney/Palin or Huckabee
#3) Independent -- Ron Paul/ Gary Johnson
In peace & liberty,
