Ron Paul says he will not join other candidates in boycotting Nevada caucus

Ron Paul said Thursday that he would not be boycotting other Republican candidates in potentially boycotting the Nevada caucus if it interfered with New Hampshire's "first in the nation" primary status.

"This talk of boycotts doesn't serve the electoral process any more than the states' jockeying for position and primacy," Paul said in a statement. "New Hampshire deserves its rightful place as the first primary in the nation, but we will fight to preserve that place without depriving Nevada or Iowa voters of their say in the 2012 nomination process."

They are playing politics.

It's my belief they were told, because they are the lower republibots on the totem pole, to do so in hopes of getting Dr.Paul to sacrifice his position there.

They play on the fact that Dr.Paul wants to believe they aren't the scum of the earth and would whore their own mothers out to the elite for a power seat.

Let's Win Nevada!

We need to step up efforts to win Nevada. I'm currently in Iowa (from California) and had an amazing turn out to a meet-up I hosted in Ames last night. We can win Iowa, and get 2nd in NH. If we work at it we might be able to get 1st in Nevada. Let's step up efforts in early primary states as they are trying to push them forward (in order to undermine Paul? Maybe...).

If you got time, no job, or just feel like being a savage, fly out to an early primary state, find some places to stay on couchsurfing.org, and get some supporters together through meet-up, or connect with the official campaign, and start getting some work done.

Find out what the campaign needs, or just get jiggy with it and go door to door, attend events with hand outs, go to the Occupy Protests with free DVDs, walk around campuses handing out info, whatever.

superb activism Jack, thanks for your

inspiring, take-charge work!

Frantic Stage!

Charlie's Angel is correct (a post below)in saying that the comments under the article say it all. The Powers are frantic and now trying to change the rules to bring the Primaries forward so that Ron's message will not be heard any longer because his numbers are growing exponentially. We are truly witnessing a paradigm shift in this country, something it has not seen since its beginning. The "Black this Out" money bomb is going to be extremely important. It is wonderfully amazing to see the beginning of the end for the Power structure that has been in control for so long. I am waiting for the day when the MSM is completely shut down and truth again prevails.

"SHOCK THE WORLD NEVADA"

Ron Paul finished 2nd in Nevada in 2008. Tens of thousands of Paul supporters sit on the sidelines from 2008 who claim there is no chance. A "flash knockdown" by Ron Paul in Nevada would shock the world and rock the establishment.

We'll kick in a $1,000 for billboards in Nevada if anyone has an interest in this project, let's move on it. We can drive a hard bargain on advertising these days.

Let's plant the seed now and give people time to think, they are already upset. I've put a mock up of the billboard on my site, www.2012frontrunners.com

So when Newt said he will sit out any states that

precede NH, does he mean he will not appear on the ballot in those states?

You want to get a lift.....read the comments under the article....the MEDIA WHORES won't be able to deny Dr. Paul's message much longer.....PEOPLE ARE PISSED...EXCUSE MY LANGUAGE AND WE'RE NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE!!!

I think this is good, and a great response by Ron. He didn't alienate NH which is arguably more important but made the point that NV should have the same amount of voice as everyone else. I agree.

What shenanigans are these

What shenanigans are these RINO THUGS up to now???

So glad to hear this....I

So glad to hear this....I live in Nevada.....GO DR. PAUL!

Are you going to caucus in

Are you going to caucus in NV?

There is going to be a rocking state GOP convention for delegates! Hope you can make it by being registered R and going to your local caucus.

Yes I want to....I am

Yes I want to....I am involved at headquarters....taking my cue from them!

My Guess Is

If an establishment candidate wins, then he or she will get all the delegates; if Ron Paul wins, then he'll get half of the delegates.

This is the problem of joining to the only game in town that is rigged.

SO..I do not know what is

SO..I do not know what is happening but it is like last time when Florida did the same thing. If you have a primary before 2/1/12 then your state LOSES HALF its delegates. Personally, I have never understood how any resident of a state that decided to do this should put up with it for ANY reason. There IS no reason for losing half your delegates.

This is the first I even

This is the first I even heard of this..man they will just try anything..

Nevada

was one of our best showings last time around, and that was even with the Sue Lowden fiasco and everything, and we still nearly pulled off a win in that state.

Nevada is RP territory. It would be ludicrous to boycott that state. Maybe that's why the other candidates are going to boycott it, because they know they'll lose to Ron there anyway.

I thought the EXACT same thing

Ron Paul could win Nevada handily. This is insanity.

I'm sure the folks who boycott are afraid of

the New Hampshire voters. By boycotting they stroke the NH egos, and hope to be rewarded for it.

By refusing to ignore Nevada, candidates risk the ire of an insulted NH.

My guess is that NH's long-time status as a leading indicator makes it more valueable in shaping the race, regardless of the electoral votes.

My opinion, anyway.

I'm voting for Peace.

Is this a game?

Or is it the survival of our nation! I'm embarrassed to be a Republican with the shenanigans they pull. ME first! Mine! Mine! Sounds like a preschool playground.
