I don't know about you but I'll take the votes for Ron Paul any way we can get them.

Michigan has no political

Michigan has no political party registration system. If folks who traditionally view themselves as lining up with the ideals of the Democratic Party are willing to take the time to vote for Paul, I'd say it's proof that they aren't satisfied with the Democratic Party.

I live in Michigan and I'm all for getting my friends who voted for Obama last time around to vote for Paul in the primary. Most of the people I know who voted for Obama did so because he promised an end to the wars. There are eight months between February and November to turn these loaner votes into actual Ron Paul votes. And the more Ron Paul speaks the more clear everything becomes.

The Democrats don't want to let this cat out of the bag

People love freedom and won't want to go back

Government is supposed to protect our freedom, our property, our privacy, not invade it. Ron Paul 2007

Thats great!

That is a very dangerous plan for the Dems, it will backfire on them. They'll get caught up in the energy of the Ron Paul supporters and forget what the original plan was.

Don't under estimate the power of the force!!!

Why aren't Detroit Dems being told to vote for Karger?

Why aren't Detroit Dems being told to vote for Karger? Ol' Fred's the glamour boy of the Hollywood set. He's on the ballot in Michigan, and continues to dish out the most ferocious slaps to Romney I've ever seen.

ALARM!

TRAP!!!
They will use that against us ("a good portion of your votes are not real ones...)

WE SHOULD NOT produce attention for this story AT ALL!

define real votes

if it is an open primary (i assume it is)
anyone can vote for anybody

Of course the establishment will cry foul

But just as we can make good use of campaign donations from those we don't agree with, we can make good use of these democratic voters.
Michigan's open primary rules allow citizens this choice and I believe we should encourage it. Who knows, voting for freedom could be habit forming.

I'll take my Liberty, it's not yours to give.

To make Ron Paul out to be a spoiler

Ron Paul's biggest problem is having followers that don't join the GOP, and this is why the GOP is breaking it's own rules, and states are closing primarys so Democrats MUST vote for Obama and Ron will NOT get the support from his other party and Indy followers.

This is a "not so secret" weapon for Dr. Paul.

In addition to pulling in the youth vote, Paul brings in a lot of disgruntled democrats as well. There are a lot of democrats that are fed up with government, too. The one that are really noticing this is the OBAMA ADMINISTRATION. That's why you'll hear them be very mum on Ron Paul. Ron Paul would be their worst nightmare. It would be very hard for Obama to explain why the youth are flocking to old man Dr. Paul. It would be a powderkeg event.

You are soo right.

It's one thing for CNN and Fox news to ignore Ron Paul. But when MSNBC ignores him he is a threat to Obama in their eyes.

my comment from a similar

my comment from a similar post:

"awesome. i don't believe people can really grasp just how bad it is in detroit without visiting and observing the residential neighborhoods and old businesses. it is so totally screwed, it's unbelievable. cities in the third world look better. there are more boarded up, literally burnt houses and shops than there are livable ones. it's not surprising residents there would be fans of ron paul, even for opportunistic reasons."

Not only that. I strongly

Not only that. I strongly believe that neocons will follow noecon's radio hosts lead and will vote for Obama, rather than Ron.
Mark my words. None of the neocons will vote for Ron. If we have Ron nominated we can only hope for independents and some Democrats.
I have heard many times on neocon radio, that Obama will be better than Ron.
And the reason is that they are anti-american, because they are Israel-firsters. They twisted logic of limited government can't stand the possibility that US Gov. would not support Israel. If they only could see, that having true limited gov., would allow them to accumulate enough personal wealth, that they could send all the money they want to support Israel or whatever other idea they have. But no. In their view the Gov. has to do it. Neocons are truly evil.

Can you even imagine what would happen if Paul wins

the nomination?? I'd put my money on the neocons throwing in a third-party candidate as a means of taking Paul's votes. The GOP would rather have Obama than Paul, because they know that Paul will cut up their credit cards, kick them out of the house, and tell them to get a job.

Indeed. But I don't see how

Indeed. But I don't see how neocons could "take votes" from Dr. Paul... they would rather cut off their own noses than vote for a man of peace.

Gingrich Would Run Third Party

I sincerely believe that. He'd lose and then later try to rejoin the Republican party.

Trump/Bloomberg?

Trump has already said he will go independent if he doesn't like the nominee, I could see this as the establishment hail mary to try to keep Obama President in the event of Ron Paul winning at the convention.

Yup - We'll take votes any way we can get them...

Please - Go ahead and and vote for Dr. Paul.

Afterall - He could NEVER beat Obama!

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."

Detroit = Drones = May actually work!

OK, so this was a rabid group of Obamabots told to vote for Paul in the primary so he'll run Third-Party and steal votes from the Republican in November.

This means that they know OBAMA SUCKS in the minds of voters with brains.

The good thing here is that these Detroit Drones will do WHATEVER their Union Bosses tell them to do.

The GREAT THING is that this will BACKFIRE and many Dems WITH BRAINS will actually vote for PAUL, NOT OBAMA in the general.

Suddenly Detroit doesn't seem as distraught as I thought!

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

Paul vs. Obama

The greatest ideological political contest of the century. I can't wait. Little do these guys know that Paul would take it.

Personally

I don't care about party.
I vote for liberty.

For that matter, votes along that vein are ridiculous. Liberty should be simply a given. Lordy, how much we have tolerated this behemoth gov morass is beyond comprehension.

Righty-o! Time for us to quit

Righty-o! Time for us to quit tolerating it.
