Ron Paul

I had to write him in!

Chuck Baldwin

Chuck Baldwin

I was forced to

Write him in here in California,as was My Wife and 84 year old Mother.She Bragged to one of the polsters on the way out "That's the First time in My life that I've written in a Candidate but I was happy to do it for Ron Paul" haha

Was too young to vote, but I

Was too young to vote, but I would have voted for McCain back then (I was a bit of a neocon in those days). I remember liking Fred Thompson in the primary, and McCain was my number two (wow, I've come a long way haven't I?)

yes you have brother

Don't worry we're all immigrants here. This is the great "American experiment" revival happening right before our eyes.

Humility is a great characteristic

We've all come a long way in 4 years.

I proudly voted for the Black candidate in 2008

Cynthia McKinney ;)

may as well vote for the other black socialist, the one who won

i can't imagine why anyone who supports ron paul would vote for that marxist.


Well first of all, I know she is NOT a marxist LOL

On September 10, 2008, McKinney joined a press conference held by third-party and independent candidates, along with Ralph Nader, Chuck Baldwin, and initiator Ron Paul.[74] The participants agreed on four basic principles:

* An early end to the Iraq war, and an end to threats of war against other countries including Iran and Russia.

* The safeguarding of privacy and civil liberties, including a call for the repeal of the Patriot Act, the Military Commissions Act, and FISA legislation

* No increase in the National Debt

* A "thorough investigation, evaluation and audit of the Federal Reserve System."

Ron Paul

No write-in either. He was on the Montana ballot.
Felt good, too!

What Party line?

Was he on?

Ron Paul was selected by the Constitution Party in MT in 2008

Ron Paul obtained 2.2% of the vote in Montana, which is the best result of any third party candidate in any state. He also obtained 0.5% in Louisiana, putting him ahead of any other third party candidate in that state. Ron Paul obtained 17,006 write-in votes in California.

Ron Paul was reelected as Congressman for the 14th District of Texas. He did not have an opponent.


John McCain: 50.1% (236,513 votes)
Barack Obama: 46.7% (220,301 votes)
Ron Paul: 2.2% (10,230 votes)
Ralph Nader: 0.8% (3,570 votes)
Bob Barr: 0.3% (1,300 votes)

In Montana, the Constitution Party of Montana used to be an affiliate of the national Constitution Party until July 2006. Since then, it has been an independent party. This year, they selected Ron Paul and Michael Peroutka as their presidential candidates.



Chuck Baldwin

I voted for Chuck Baldwin of the Constitution Party because Ron specifically told his followers to do so, pointing out how worthless write-in's are. A write-in vote is a protest vote that accomplishes nothing. A third-party vote is a protest vote that at least helps grow the party for future endeavors. I never understood why people wrote Ron's name in.

same here.....Baldwin

But later regretted not writing in Ron Paul....


Me, too.

Baldwin was on the MO ballot and write-ins weren't counted.

Ditto Ditto

Same here in NY, but I do regret not writing RP in.

This is painful

I was a stupid idiotic NEOCON and I voted for McCain/Palin.

McCain for me too

I thought he'd spend slightly less than Obama, and held my nose voting for him. From then on, I've voted on principle for a vote I felt good about, even tho so far only 1 person got elected (Coburn) in OK.

Don't you feel

better having gotten that off your chest? It's a new day and your eyes are open now. No need to look back anymore.

Hey I voted for Bush

TWICE!! So who am I to judge lol

Welcome LiveFreeOrDie!!

Guilty as charged! :( But a DIE-HARD RP'er as of Summer 2007!

Hey, Kerry was a LYING, Pompous arse! I learned NEVER to believe a word uttered out of a Democrat in 2004.
I hated Bush, but still pulled the lever.

but then during the very first debates in the Summer of 2007 there were 3 AMAZING candidates: Kucinich, Gravel and RON PAUL!!!

I became OBSESSED with Ron Paul in 2008, to the detriment of everyone around me! Never donated or volunteered for a campaign before then.

I may be a vegetarian, but I'll defend to the death my right to eat meat!

the same kucinich who endorsed obama and obamacare?

i'll never understand how a ron paul supporter can stomach kucinich.



oh man I felt bad for voting for the 2000 "no nation building" bush. Fool me once but you can't fool me again. I'm glade you got that off your chest I know that had to be a huge burden to bare.


Here =(


... oh my!

Plano TX

I voted for..

I didn't know anything about him, but I just had a certain positive feeling about this guy named Ron Paul, so I wrote him in because I didn't like the other 2 guys.

I wish I had woken up completely back then in 2008 because it took me until last May to swallow the red pill.

Go Ron Paul 2012!
