Ron Paul Should Have a Third Party Run and Not Take Republican VP Spot

In a petition at Change.org, Ron Paul supporters are “outraged” at the treatment that Paul’s candidacy has received from the GOP at the local, state, and national levels, press blackouts, and dirty tricks at the caucuses. Because of this, they are urging Paul supporters not to vote for the eventual Republican candidate if Paul or his son, Kentucky libertarian Senator Rand Paul, isn’t nominated as the vice presidential candidate. Although I agree with the sentiment behind the petition, the GOP will likely not give either Paul a VP nod, and it would probably not appease Paul supporters anyway. So what will Paul supporters do in November?

The petition is absolutely correct, however, when they point out that Paul supports make up about 15-20% of the Republican Party, and GOP hostility to their presence at caucuses and their libertarian leanings is a recipe for disaster if the GOP thinks that they can win the presidency without a significant percentage of their votes.

And America should have many third parties - third parties having the same laws applied to them as the so called 2 major parties.
