October surprise?Submitted by 89vision on Thu, 03/08/2012 - 09:19
Could Dr. Paul be the October surprise?
As it becomes increasingly difficult to see how Dr. Paul can win the Republican nomination, I think we need to start working on Plan B.
We need find a way to nominate Dr. Paul, for some other party (i.e. Libertarian) so that he will be on the ballot in November.
I know Dr. Paul has no intentions on running 3rd party, but I would like to remind everyone of the story of Cincinnatus. Cincinnatus was a Roman Senator who was living in retirement. However in a time of need, the Roman Senate went to Cincinattus and pleaded with him to become dictator (a Roman title), during the war. After the war was won, he gave all his power back, and returned back to his farm and retirement.
So maybe if we can get Dr. Paul nominated, then maybe he would change his mind and run.
