I thought there was gonna be a poll? Is there no way to actually embed one?

Anyways, I voted McCain in 2008, thinking he was actually something different than he was. I thought he was a real anti-establishment Republican, not a dyed-in-the-wool neocon. I also liked Sarah Palin's Tea Party-esque politics (although hated her persona). I was aware of Ron Paul, and I liked him, I just fell into that classic "he can't win" trap. Never again...

I voted Barr (much to my

I voted Barr (much to my current regret) just like I have voted for every LP candidate thus far. I wasn't sure I was going to vote for him, or write in Paul, until I stared at the table in the voting booth.

I held my nose and voted for McPain over Obama

Never again it is Ron Paul or Gary Johnson this time around!

Don't piss down my back and tell me it's raining!

If it is Johnson, I really

If it is Johnson, I really hope that he sharpens his message. He comes across as very diffuse and indecisive sometimes. Has he taken an absolutist stand against Iran sanctions for example?

I wrote-in Ron Paul. I didn't

I wrote-in Ron Paul.

I didn't vote in the primary, but I will this year. I've already registered Republican (*shudder*).

Paul in primary

Chuck Baldwin in general.

I voted for Dr. Paul in the

I voted for Dr. Paul in the Georgia primary and McCain for president. What a mistake. I sold my soul and will not do it again. I will write in Dr. Paul this year. I don't see any difference between Obama, Newt or Mitt, so it doesn't matter.

I voted for...

In CA Primary = Ron Paul
In CA General = Cynthia McKinney ( RP not on ballot )

"Great Men Do Not Seek Power, They Have Great Power Thrust Upon Them"


On both votes and the State I voted in! We should sync up!

I Voted For

In the Texas primary Ron Paul

In the general election Chuck Baldwin of the Constitution Party.

Live Free or Die

I wrote in...

Ron Paul!

"I don't know if the world is full of smart men bluffing
or imbeciles who mean it."

Paul in the primary, Baldwin in the general election

Michael Badnarak in 2004 general

Al Gore in 2000 general

I am ashamed to say I voted

I am ashamed to say I voted for Obama.

It's ok.

Don't worry! It's okay! We love you!

Don't blame me...

I voted for Dr. Ron Paul in 2008 (write-in) and will do it again in 2012 regardless of the primary outcome.

Wrote in "Ron Paul" and will keep doing so until

another real conservative with a real record steps forward.

That could be Gary Johnson, Rand Paul, etc.

Ron Paul

Ron Paul in primary

Baldwin in General

Paul in primary, Baldwin in general

If Ron Paul does not get the nomination, I will vote Constitution Party in November.


I'm glad that I did, too. Since the beginning of the new century, I've voted for Buchanan in 2000 and Peroutka in 2004.

Help prevent votes for Gingrich that people will later regret

BTW, here's a smackdown of Gingrich and the conservative Christians who support him:


Last time around:

In 2007, I caucused in Iowa for Ron Paul.
In 2008, I voted for Ron Paul's endorsement Chuck Baldwin (Constitution Party)

In 2011, I caucused in Iowa for Ron Paul. (I am also a soft delegate for Ron Paul)
In 2012, I plan on voting for Dr. Ron Paul, even if it is a write in.

Welcome to the r3VOLuti0n!


Paul then Nader

Caucused for Paul in Spring 2008. Voted for Nader in November 2008. Have never regretted either vote.

McCain~~~but never again

will we vote lesser of two evils.

2000 Gore 2004 Badnarik 2008

2000 Gore
2004 Badnarik
2008 Ron Paul (primary) Barr (general)
2012 Ron Paul
2016 Rand Paul




Bush 00' Bush 04' Ron Paul 08' in the Primary and Chuck Baldwin 08'...

I no longer vote after learning more about the black box but I encourage people to understand and support Ron Paul and be engaged with local political figures... one day we'll get back to accountable government and there is much that can be done other than voting every four years.


He was on the ballot in WA state and Ron Paul was not. I thought about writing in Ron Paul, but they (King county) do not count write in votes.

Ron Paul in the Primary

McKinney in the General Election... I didn't know about writing in candidates at that time.
