*Update 2.0*How many of you in here pledge to Never back Romney? *UPDATE 2.0*

Just curious as to how many patriots here plan to stand with us against the idiotic "ABO" (Anyone But Obama) the Obsolete GOP have been screaming at us to follow.

While we have a great chance of winning the nomination still, I plan to write Dr. Paul's name in if he doesn't get the nomination.

One thing is absolutely certain... Romney and the GOP will NEVER get my vote!

How many of you feel the same way?

Ron Paul Supporters Will NOT Vote for Mitt Romney

*Update 2.0*

Lately, we have seen many Romney operatives on this site and on the internet trying to sabotage our movement by attempting to guilt or pressure you into voting for the disgrace that is Romney/Ryan.

I think most of us in here know that Romney and Obama are essentially the same candidate with Marginal differences between them. The unfortunate reality is that one of these two horrible people is going to win the Presidency.

While there has been much debate on this site and throughout the Liberty movement about whether to write in Ron Paul or vote Gary Johnson, I think we can all agree that a Romney win would be a devastating blow for Freedom and Liberty in this country. Romney is an inherently evil and vile person who only lusts for war and control of every aspect of your life.

The simple fact is while I can never advocate voting for Obama, as I think you should vote for who you believe best represents you as an American, and I believe he does not represent me, I believe we should all stand together against Romney. At the very minimum at least 4 years of Obama with a GOP controlled congress, would be better than 8 potential years of Romney completely unchecked and prepared to reign terror and fascism in this country.

So whether you chose to vote for Johnson or write in Ron Paul, just make sure you tell everyone you know of the threat that a Romney win poses to this country and stay involved. The next 4 years are going to be difficult but if we continue to work together we vote in Liberty Movement candidates at the state and local level and have a chance at a Liberty Movement President in 4 2016.

So I ask all of you will you fold to the pressure of the Neocon/Romney machine or will you stand with the rest of the patriots in this movement against the American terror that is Romney/Ryan.


Romney/Ryan and the GOP have proven by their actions this entire election and especially at the RNC, that they neither want nor deserve our support or our Vote.

Ryan and Romney are a disgrace and an embarrassment to this country and everything it was built on.

I pledge to not only never vote or support Romney, but I pledge to convince everyone I know that a vote for Romney is a vote for Corruption, Fraud, hatred of our constitution and personal freedoms.

Frankly a vote for Romney is a slap in the face of everyone in this movement who worked their butts off to become a delegate only to get shafted! It's a slap in the face of the Vets for Ron Paul and anyone who served this country to protect our freedoms! It's a slap in the face of everyone who phone banked or donated to the movement, and you should be embarrassed and ashamed of yourself if you even contemplate voting for the disgrace that is Romney/Ryan.

I will encourage everyone I know to either write in Ron Paul or Vote for any third party.

You have a choice this November... The President of the United States is supposed to be a representation of you as an American and someone you can respect as a leader and should reflect your views. Anyone who votes or supports Romney is saying that their personal views are essentially lies, corruption, violence and the antithesis of everything this country was built on.

This is the most upvoted thread in the history of the DP and I am proud to stand with every patriot in here who has made this pledge.

Do not fold, We Are the Future of This Country. Step one is to remove every single NEO-CON from any position of influence.

Absentee for ROM PAUL !

A vote for Romney is a

A vote for Romney is a justification for what they have done. It's also saying you think Romney is actually different than Obama which any intelligent person knows is not true.

No confidence so no vote!

Romney no Diferent Than Obama

except maybe on abortion or gay rights....lol

The issues that the "news" tries hard to make relevant....oh, and welfare reform. LOL

The real issues, the big issues, the issue wrecking our nation are left completely unspoken. Screw these two puppets.

End the Fed, End the Military Industrial Complex, End the corporate banking, and corporate industry.

Restore America and American Values. If we can't win the prsidency, still get out there and vote, win every position from precinct leaders on up. Start taking governorships....etc. We will win this....there is might in right.

Nope, will NEVER support

Nope, will NEVER support Romney.




I'm tired of people saying my vote for Ron Paul (who I will vote for) is the same as a vote for Obama. No! My vote for Dr. Paul is a vote for Dr. Paul! We need to stop buying into the lie of only having two choices. I'm not blind to reality, but we have to start somewhere. The most sacred way a person can interact with their government is by casting a vote. I just can't see myself ever voting other than my conscious. Voting just to get rid of Obama instead of voting for who I truly believe should run the executive branch would be a terrible compromise and a slippery slope of ruin.

I am fully aware that Dr. Paul won't win, but my responsibility is to vote for who I think is best, as is yours. No person who truly understands liberty and what Dr. Paul stands for will ever vote for Mitt. Now in the meantime, I'm trying to show my friends that Mitt is no different than Obama. He's just the other side of the same coin. Wish me luck!

Voting Gary Johnson.

Voting Gary Johnson.

Obama's going to win regardless. No one likes Romney and even people who disagree with Obama still "like" him. Most people I encounter hate politics but identify with Democrats and like Obama even if they criticize him.

Same here...

GJ is not my top choice... but rest assured, when Mitt Romney loses the election by ~5% and GJ has 12% of the vote, our voices will have been heard.

Never Romney

Or any other neo-con

You Won't Pledge Not To Back Romney?

Please reconsider. Bear in mind his support for the NDAA.

pretty sure he is saying 'no

pretty sure he is saying 'no way' to supporting Mittens.

The only way I would consider it is if RP himself made a convincing case. Even then it's not guaranteed. Right now my plan is to either write in RP or vote GJ, depending on the ballot situation. I would love to have every last ron paul supporter either do one or the other, but do it together so that the maximal impact will be felt.

that having been said, do what you think is right. we're not called libertarians for nothing. :)

fwiw, none of my friends or acquaintances have even tried to convince me to support him. most of them ask me whether I'm writing Ron Paul in. Good to know I've made my point over the last 4 years. :D

I Remember

Voting for McCain in 2008, walking back to my car and on the way, getting physically sick. I vowed then and there I wasn't going to vote for the lesser of two evils ever again. I'll stay home.


Why not vote for Dr. Paul? You don't need the RNC's permission to vote for anyone. Do what you want! That's liberty after all; you are free to do anything you want so long as it doesn't infringe on someone else's right to do the same!

I am thinking we need to be

I am thinking we need to be the ones to bring Romney DOWN! We could be seen as the king makers of the next election? Let's post, blog, comment about how bad Mitt would really be! Let's have the next candidates pandering to US for our support!

Reasons to NOT support MITT!

‎1. Romney is an aloof impersonal millionaire that connects only with other millionaires.
2. A vote for Romney is a vote for socialized health care as he WROTE the blueprint for ObamaCare!
3. A vote for Romney tells the RNC that you will support any moderate, liberal, socialist candidate they put in front of you, which guarantees MORE of them!
4. Romney thumbed his nose at grassroots conservatives and Tea Party people at the convention with an unprecedented power grab, taking ALL the power to himself to change rules against the will of the voters, this is a very troubling signal.
5. Romney bought support, broke the rules, and outright cheated his way through the primary, another troubling signal of how he would govern!
6. Romney was one of the first governors to sign an assault weapons ban.
7. Romney swore to protect a woman's right to "choose".
8. Romney raised FEES on guns by 400% in MA.
9. Romney signed a law legalizing gay marriage in MA.
10. Romney did not run for reelection in MA because he would have lost having a record low approval rate of only 34%!
11. A Romney win means that the soonest we could have a real Conservative president again would be 2021!
12. Romney touts his "business" experience, but only "saved" the Olympics with a 125 million dollar government bailout from the DOE.
13. Romney touts his "business" experience, but when tasked to "fix" health care in MA, he turned to government, like a democrat, instead of to free market solutions, like a Republican.
14. As a "Republican" governor, he appointed ONLY 9 Republican Judges, and 27 NON-Republican judges! (14 DEMOCRAT and 13 no declared party). This record means he WILL appoint LIBERAL SC Justices!
15. Romney still refuses to release his 2009 tax return, this is the year the IRS held an amnesty for tax evading overseas accounts.
16. Romney refused to seat elected delegates from MA, LA, OK, CO, OR, because they preferred Ron Paul, in doing so he pissed off at least 10% of the Republican party SEALING HIS FATE !
17. Holding the Guinness Book of World Records in FLIP FLOPPING, Romney has held at least three positions on EVERY issue, and ANYTHING he says during the campaign is strictly to get your vote, he means NONE of it!
And this is just a FEW things! As a Christian, lifetime Republican and Tea Party member I will do all I can to defeat Romney, the future of the GOP and our country depend on it! Vote for the ONLY Conservative in this race, Gary Johnson!

it was $410 million in our

it was $410 million in our tax dollars according HIM in his own words in the video I saw.

I will never vote for a Romney

I voted and worked for the Bush campaigns, and I will never do that to my children again.

Empty suit

As far as I know I can't vote for an empty suit!
No Way!
No How!

Anyone but Romney.... I

Anyone but Romney.... I Pledge to campaign against him.....

Republicans against Romney?

Anyone want to start a PAC? I will gladly write letters to independent voters in swing states detailing the reasons why I, as a Republican, will not vote for him. The fossils of the GOP may think that they can bully us into conformity, but I know that my actions as an individual can do more than 10,000 of them merely "showing up" at the ballot box.

I've been giving this some

I've been giving this some thought over the last few days, and I'll be interested to see how the liberty movement responds. (likely there will be many different ways.)

my thoughts are that this is *exactly* like a pro wrestling match in the sense that both opponents work for the same people. the ultimate goal is to get you emotionally invested in pulling for one actor or the other for whatever reason available.

whether the sheep-herders in charge of the Republican party are aware of this is moot. they are either in on the show or they are some of its most ardent, believing fans. getting their goat by making sure romney loses would be satisfying, but ultimately misdirected, in my eyes. if they are in on the charade, then they'll be more than happy at our involvement in the process. we wasted energy fighting a paper mache candidate. if they are ardent believers, we get the satisfaction of ticking them off, but in the end they will remain tied to the money flow coming from the larger interests.

one way or another, our efforts will be best served educating and convincing our friends and neighbors of our views. I believe this is what led to RP becoming so popular, and it's what converted me from an apathetic sheep to an involved citizen.

Under no circumstances will I

Under no circumstances will I vote for either Romney or Obama.



Save your gas money and stay home...

they'll just flip your vote anyways...

Ron Paul Was Right

I already pledged not to but...

No oaths necessary.

I would rather make a Declaration of Independence and elect Dr. Ron Paul the first leader of the United States of Liberty.
