Do you think having Libertarian/Constitution Party candidates is just plain stubborn of them at this point?Submitted by enjoiskaterguy on Mon, 05/23/2011 - 04:46
NOTE: This is all in context of the Primary election
I want your take on this.
Having Ron out there on the national airwaves almost every week day, getting on televised debates and having a huge following in the liberty movement, do you think, at this point in time, having the liberty-minded 3rd parties run their candidates against Dr. Paul really helps or hurts the liberty movement during the primaries?
Me personally, in terms of the primary elections, having the Libertarian Party and the Constitution Party not support Dr. Paul this time around and encourage people to not register Republican would just seem selfish and naive. The underlying message of liberty is the same amongst us all and as of RIGHT NOW, we have the best chance with Dr. Paul. I hope the liberty-minded 3rd parties can all come together and endorse Dr. Paul during this crucial election cycle, because if they don't, then all of what will happen is just the creation of a larger vote gap, in which case will all blow up in our faces again with another lose for liberty.
I hope organizations like LPAC, teh RLC and the Campaign for Liberty can all encourage us to get as many people Registered Republican ASAP so we can all come together under one banner and spread the message of freedom and liberty with the driving force that is Ron Paul. I hope you all will join in this effort, because it is an important effort; one that holds to our cause.
We can also encourage our Libertarian/Constitutional outlets like Reason Magazine,Infowars.com, Lew Rockwell.com, Republic Magazine and others to get this too.
