Wash Post: Where will Ron Paul’s supporters go for the general election?


"Many mainstream Republicans have long viewed his supporters as a fringe element. But they face a gnawing question: What if Paul’s followers do not fall in line behind the eventual GOP nominee, who will need every vote possible to defeat President Obama in the fall?"

We will be at one of three places

on the White House lawn celebrating our victory, at the voting stations, or 3 planning our steps to victory for Rand Paul in 2016!!!!! They want to win elections, we win the people, elections are just frosting on the cake.

Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must. like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.-Thomas Paine

The R3volution requires action, not observation!!!!

As I said elsewhere...

This is the plan:

Step 1: Vote for Ron Paul no matter what.
1A) Ron Paul as GOP nominee ... OR
1B) Write in "Ron Paul"

Step 2: Be excited no matter what.
2B) GOP burns to the ground, we have a dictatorship that ends in 2016.

Step 3: Get ready to campaign for President Paul in 2016!
3A) Re-election of President Ron Paul!! ... OR
3B) Rand Paul for President (begin step 3B if necessary the day after the general election in Nov 2012)

Now you know the plan. Go execute the plan. :)

what im hoping

i really hope the majority of Paul supporters write him in or at the very least vote for Gary Johnson. Paul is polling nationally anywhere from what, 8-20%? Even on the low end, that 8% could be devastating to the Republicans in November. I'd love for RevPAC to somehow do a national poll as to what percentage would not vote for either those 3 or Obama. Of course I'm never going to give up on Dr. Paul winning the nomination.

I commented on it yesterday and wrote:

If I can't write in Paul, I will vote for Gary Johnson or Buddy Roemer. The GOP is done. They have ruined their party and the only hope left is for all the young Ron Paul supporters to get into govt. and rid the stench in local, state and national govt. This is the revolution. We will take over the GOP and will even change the name of the party because it has become a nasty stinking dirty word in America. America is ashamed of them and they have become the laughing stock of the world.

Where will we go?

To the ballot to write in Ron Paul.

I will do my civic duty

And go to my voting place. Where I will pull the lever, push the button, or write in the correlating area representing my candidate Ron Paul.
Then I'll go home, and keep track of the election on the DP or Drudge.
I won't watch network news, they shall never see me again, nor will I do Internet lame steam media, they too shall never see me again.
If ever I find my self presented the opportunity to state my opinion upon any subject by a local tv news crew I'll in all seriousness ask " Why would you think that I might believe you care even a little bit about what anyone thinks?".as far as America goes, well this election needs to get won for Ron or I don't hold high hopes for the ramifications and results of what happens next in America. Whatever it will be, it won't be freedom, happiness, or liberty.

Strainght to work

doing everything I can to make the corporate media and their hirelings irrelevant and unemployed. Since RP has been denied even basic press coverage for massive rallies and grassroots support while the rest have been given millions in free positive publicity for much less support and since the GOP has outright defrauded him of votes and voters of access I do not view any other candidate as legitimate. There is no doubt that elites simply put unelected and unqualified people into positions of power to fleece us. Any winner but RP is simply illegitimate, fraudulently installed, a puppet of the corporate media and elites who run them. We are ruled without our consent. I will consider myself living in an occupied country, tyrannized by global elites with no interest in the US, her people or our interests.

Do you know how Ron Paul

Do you know how Ron Paul never changes his positions or wavers on issues?

I'm the same way.

It's No One But Paul 2012! And I WILL write him in if I have to.

Sorry, but that's the way it is.

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

Ron Paul or NONE AT ALL!

We will not vote for any of the other 3 stooges running in the GOP race! SIMPLE AS THAT!!!

Where will Ron Paul’s supporters go for the general election?

Err, I'll be voting for Ron Paul...

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom — go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, an


real question is: Will the uninformed neo-con followers fall in line when Ron Paul becomes the GOP candidate for the Presidency?

They can't win without us and they can only win if we are guiding the ship. Do the math....lol

Thank you! I agree entirely!

If Romney is the nominee, (or Santorum, Gingrich, or Jeb Bush~~Jeb could actually be the nominee if the convention ends up as a brokered behind the scenes convention) then I will once again follow RP's lead and vote third party. I hope he will either run third party, or challenge the results . (But highly doubt the 1st scenario, so hope he challenges the results of the convention if need be. )
