Americans Elect: 3 Days Remaining for Ron Paul to be ONLY candidate to qualifySubmitted by jd925 on Fri, 04/27/2012 - 07:07
10 days left - It's probable at this time that no one will qualify.
-AE has raised $30 million
-They probably have already spent over $2.5 million to get ballot access in roughly half the 50 states so far.
-If Ron Paul qualifies we can get the attention of 466,000+ independent minded voters who liked AE on facebook and others to look more into Ron Paul
-Even if Ron Paul declines the nomination this is good publicity especially if he is the only one that qualifies.
As of now, Ron Paul needs 5,581 more votes from verified members in CA, TX, FL, NY, PA, OH, MI, WA, NC, VA.
Again winning the AE nomination can spur many more independent voters, Ron Paul's base, to look into Ron Paul. He can earn millions of dollars worth of media attention from getting the nomination and millions if he declines the nomination. Either way if spreading the message of liberty is important to you I think this is a great opportunity to do just that. Please sign up at: www.americanselect.org
If you are a state or national GOP delegate there may be potential conflicts of interest with the GOP so please be aware of your party rules and it may be safer for you not to participate. For others that are concerned please read below:
Note: “Ron Paul Rumor”
A rumor surfaced earlier this week suggesting that Americans Elect delegates might be “disqualifying” themselves from being legal delegates to support a GOP candidate.
This rumor, based on GOP Rule 11(b) and 15(c)(3), does not strictly apply to Americans Elect delegates as our Rules are not “state law” as referred to in the GOP Rules. But more importantly, AE participation is private and will not be released.
Bottom line: even if the GOP Rules Committee decided that the spirit of their rules required disqualification of those participating in the AE process, there is no way the GOP could enforce the rule because they would have no way to identify AE participants.
