Ron Paul MUST run for Speaker of the HouseSubmitted by Bob-45 on Fri, 10/29/2010 - 08:05
Michelle Bachmann stated she would not vote for John Boehner if another acceptable candidate comes along. Tea Party candidates will comprise the vast majority of new GOP House members and Ron Paul has significant support in the Tea Party. Even those in the Tea Party who oppose Ron Paul would be loath to vote against him; as, Freshmen House members are the most vulnerable incumbents holding national office and the state of the US is likely to get considerably worse by 2012. Democrats livid at Pelosi may very well support Ron Paul for Speaker. After all, Ron Paul holds appeal across party and ideology lines; look at how he was treated on "The View" and "The Daily Show". Further, media hypocrites like Keith Olbermann and Rush Limbaugh could not continue to ignore Ron Paul if he were House Speaker. They and the Democrats would hope that worsening conditions could then be blamed on Dr. Paul, ending our movement. Perhaps more importantly, the GOP would be forced to embrace Dr. Paul or face third party status to a surging third party, such as the Libertarians. The LP has fielded MUCH better
Senate candidates this year than the GOP in many states.
Finally, Dr. Paul would prove, once and for all, he is serious about this movement succeeding, and would be in an even better position to run for president in 2012.
What's it going to be, Dr. Paul? Who are you, Thomas Jefferson, who bravely defied John Adams and the US Supreme Court, or Ronald Reagan, who talked a good story
but did not leave a single domestic accomplishment that promoted liberty.
