An Open Letter to Justin Raimondo.Submitted by Zak Carter on Sat, 04/07/2012 - 18:56
Greetings Mr. Raimondo,
I want to thank you for the great letter you penned to Dr. Paul.
I also wanted to tell you I think Dr. Paul can stay in the race for the GOP nomination, and I have hope for a brokered convention, but I also believe we should petition all of the "3rd" parties out there that have a patchwork quilt of ballot access. It would be a great story in itself if Dr. Paul were nominated by multiple parties across the country. He doesn't have to drop out of the GOP race for us to ensure he's on the ballot in November.
We can work to get Dr. Paul on a number of these 3rd party ballots while he still pursues the GOP ticket and maximizes the minimal media coverage his campaign receives. A bonus of this approach would be the internal media of each of these 3rd parties - combined it's somewhat extensive.
And so I'm asking you Mr. Raimondo, would you please consider speaking on my behalf and others who think this is a good way to ensure Dr. Paul's name will be on the November ballot? I think phone calls from you to each of the parties I've listed below and meetings if needed would be very effective. You'll find help if needed in this endeavor from myself and my friends at http://www.rp2012.org/ (I think you'll like our petition!)
In November 2008 Ron Paul was on the Louisiana and Montana ballots, lets shoot for 50 state ballots this time around.
In Liberty, Zak Carter
"In a true revolution... believe me the revolution doesn't occur within a single political party. A true revolution and those views will be reflected in the Republican party and the Democrat party and the Independent party and everybody in the country will be affected!" Ron Paul
(and yes I included the LP, even though I'm aware you stated Dr. Paul would have to ask for the nomination - I've also been told they can decline from nominating anyone and leave the convention open...ask them?:)
