Hypothetically: Ron Paul doesn't get nominated, what about JohnsonSubmitted by brianb on Mon, 05/07/2012 - 06:02
I know no matter what the odds most of us here will support Dr. Paul.
But I also think we need to plan for all possible eventualities.
One alternative could be to nominate Paul to the American's Elect spot. Another would be to focus on Johnson.
It sounds like 15% is the magic number to be included in the TV debates. I for one would welcome Johnson in the debates if I can't have Paul to have a voice against endless war and debasement of our civil liberties.
He is apparently polling at 6-9% now according to NPR. I am sure we could push him to 15%.
It is also a question about our future. This is Paul's last run for sure if he doesn't get it then we need to find someone to rally behind going forward. That said I don't know about Johnson's integrity, I'm sure it pales compared to Paul. Still I'm rather tired of the two sides of the same coin.
