I'm shaking after listening to this!!
This is a rather brilliant scenario. It very well might work.
We need to continue building support and delegates.
the other guys are just pundits talking stuff to get listeners and readers to earn advertisement money.
Follow the leader. ;)

I still don't fully understand. If at the convention no one has enough delegates to get a nomination, and Paul then decides to go third party what happens to his republican delegates? We assume (I think accurately) they will not vote for anyone but Paul so does this mean the Republicans cannot nominate a candidate and will be out of the race because the number of delegates to too few? And then it will be Obama vs a third party Paul and no Republican Nominee running?

to me! Nice, really nice. I can imagine Dr. Pauls delegates walking out after the initial vote and a whole bunch of other delegates following them out the door! LOL Sweet!
And today he's going to finish the job that Reagan began.
Ron Paul supporters will remain loyal to Ron Paul.
The most important integrity FACT of this movement.
Proud to be a part of it.
(he calls it principle loyal...nice.)

Setting a good example is a far better way to spread ideals than through force of arms. Ron Paul
I used to flinch when I heard anyone suggesting "third party" because it meant no ballot access and a Ross-Perot-like billionaire bank account (which Ron Paul recently said he'd need).
I realize Ron Paul now is focusing 100% on getting delegates, while hopefully getting the media to admit at least 1 "victory" amidst the election rigging and fraud. This is Plan A.
But Josh Tolley lays it out so lucidly and optimistically that most of us who see the political voting process as crooked and convoluted can understand it easily. This is such an important video and message because it gives back to all of us who have become embittered and disappointed our optimism again!
Ron Paul, ever the optimist and sage, would say of Plan B that "he will cross that bridge when he comes to it." You can't expect to achieve something if you don't have 100% invested in it, and that's what he has now.
Don't worry, Ron Paul, we've got your back and we will fund you Perot-style if and when the time comes!!!!
We can't adequately fund a run for the Republican nomination. How are we going to fund "Perot-style" a 3rd party run?
When you speak for yourself, don't include the collective "we" in there, okay? Keep your sourpuss face on and continue to deny vote fraud exists, but leave "we" out of it.
Meanwhile, the rest of us will think positive. You're only bumming yourself out with your attitude.
My post was about funding a 3rd party campaign. But, per your request, I'll change the pronoun I used. I have a news flash for you it takes more than a positive attitude to fund a Presidential campaign. How are YOU going to fund the campaign in Perot fashion when YOU can't even adequately fund a campaign for the nomination?
as ron paul worries about america because he loves america, so may we worry about ron paul and point out where ideas are needed to solve problems.
GERMANY for LIBERTY !
The more controversy that spreads about this, the better. The campaign has plans even we don't know about, and this is fact. We can only speculate and we should speculate many different things, so anybody watching us has to keep guessing...
Also, anyone else love that he played some Zeppelin before the commercial?
I enjoyed the Zeppelin...
but that Ted Nugent song needs to be dropkicked. "Mr. Freedom lover" Nugent just publicly endorsed Mitt Romney while stating "but he prefers Rick Perry." uggggh!
That's because your not listening to what senior members of the campaign have been saying. Certain senior members of the campaign have already made known their plans:
Here we have Bruce Sein, Ron Paul’s Senior Policy Advisor saying that Ron Paul will “negotiate for policy positions, cabinet positions, VP running mate in exchange for delegates who… support Ron Paul….”
And here we have Jesse Benton saying, “that there’s a chance [Ron Paul Supporters] might come [Romney's] way…” if Romney “talks” to them about this or “talks” to them about that. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fpSdRWGoR5k&feature=player_em...
So at least 2 senior staff members are saying that you guys, meaning Ron Paul supporters, are going to compromise your principles and jump ship.
If this is also Ron Paul’s view, and I hope it is not, then ya’s better get ready to avoid Guantanamo because we're being suckered.
"When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace."
You hope it's not Ron Paul's view? You don't know Ron Paul do you? Apparently you don't know his supporters either.
You're obviously trying to cause a division here with your accusations. What a contradiction that you have a Jimi Hendrix quote about love and peace!
as the prize you are on the wrong site. If that were to happen the GOP will still lose because he won't get my vote nor 3/4 of other Paul supporters according to polls on this subject.
As there is more than one way to skin a cat, there is more than one road to the whitehouse. I see at least 5.
November 6th 2012 I voted for Dr.Ron Paul
"We must remember, elections are short-term efforts. Revolutions are long-term projects." ~ Ron Paul
Much as I would like to believe his scenario, I am afraid it isn't going to happen.
The delegates aren't the party, we are supposed to REPRESENT the party. But we are a relative handful of people.
The same goes for county and state GOP officials.
The larger number of grassroots Republicans, Independents, and Blue Republicans who favor Ron Paul are what really count.
And I have not seen any numbers that would even come close to winning a third party campaign.
Heck, we haven't even been able to turn those huge rallies into a primary win yet. What makes anybody think Ron Paul would win as an Independent?
Our failure to support the mainstream GOP presidential candidate will probably sink the GOP candidate. But that very logical, almost inescapable, conclusion hasn't caused most Republicans to vote for Ron Paul so far.
And convincing them to do that should be a whole lot easier than having them abandon the mainstream GOP nominee during the general election.
Its nice to dream. And of course I would support Ron Paul no matter what, but I am afraid that our ultimate success requires those many Ron Paul delegates to stay in and take over the GOP.
Not just hold their noses and bolt after the RNC in Tampa.
The Virtual Conspiracy
i still get a tingle up my leg
“Give a man a gun, he can rob a bank. Give a man a central bank, and he can rob a country and the world.”
Thats because the primaries and cacuses have been fixed.
But not on a scale that would show us in the majority.
It was just enough to convince people of the MSM created "fact" that Ron Paul is an unelectable fringe candidate.
I keep hearing, "I like a lot of what Ron Paul says. Too bad he doesn't stand a chance."
These casual swing voters who would support Ron Paul IF he were the GOP nominee are voting for Romney, Santorum, or just staying home.
And what are we going to do about "election fraud" in November that we aren't doing now?
Did anyone find anything about the registration date for third party candidate? We really have to find out about this before we can proclaim that we can take this after the gop convention. I , just like everyone else here, want the Doctor to win, but we need to do this by the book and not with misinformation.
The Truth lights the shadows of ignorance!!!

Good thinking ahead.
Ron Paul's win is going to take the entire country by surprise. No one has seen this coming except for us.
(good blog against Romney, BTW)
right here on DP and at both links under the video above.
thanks for reply, but when I click on either it says video unavailable. I work in it. Thanks
Has the video been removed? I cant find it anywhere.
Otherwise use this heading and search within YouTube;
BREAKING NEWS: Ron Paul Winning Nomination (Either Way)!
Ain't gonna mean nothin' to the voting machines.
Frankly the establishment candidates are so terrible and the primary process has been executed so poorly for the Republicans that it basically looks like the general election is being set up to "re-elect" (N)Obama.
I'm under no illusion that the two party system is a fact. We actually have a one party system that pretends to be two. Think through that carefully.
Thanks to Diebold and ES&S it looks like, based on the (fradulent) narrative being put out by the MSM, that the voting machines are going to be programmed to flip votes to Obombya come November. They're already flipping votes to Romney in the primaries. Gee...I wonder why they want a rich Wall Street type who isn't even a real conservative to be the nominee... hmm.. oh yeah maybe they're setting up for an Obama win in the General. huh.
Not being defeatist. Not giving up. Just acknowledging that the USA no longer has honest elections, and hasn't for some years.
