If Paul loses, would you vote for Romney to beat Obama?

Sorry if this has been posted before. I'm too lazy to search for this post elsewhere so...a co-worker of mine is convinced that all Paul supporters will end up voting Republican, regardless of who gets the nomination, simply to defeat Obama. Please, take a few seconds to post your response to this:

What say you, Paul supporters, would you sacrifice your principles simply to prevent a Democrat from being re-elected?

I realize this question is a waste of time for everyone on this site. I am not a troll, I am just too lazy to search for a similar thread.

The Time For Compromise Is Over.

No. Liberty or death.


if it was Obama or Romney i would vote Obama because i prefer 4 more years instead of 8+ before we have a real president.

But if other options certainly Gary Johnson who has a great record as Governor.

Why don't you check out the most upvoted DP post of all time

You should find your answer there...

Hell no

I will vote for Johnson if Paul doesn't win. I don't trust him as much as Paul but I like his record in NM.

Obama -- because hes out in 4 years

If Romney wins, the GOP will be all behind him come 2016 for another four years....

That means our R3VOLution will be put on the shelf until 2020.

I am sorry, but I can't wait that long.

Lets get on with the coming battle. The GOP elite have Jeb Bush/ Rubio all picked out.

We have Rand Paul/Napolitano all picked out.

What we are doing, climbing deep inside the GOP, is fighting THAT fight right now.

Think about it.

I'm tired of hearing this shit

Seriously do we really need this shit right now, I am for RON PAUL TO GET NOMINATED AS THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, your post is irrelevant

Tell your co-worker

I voted Republican since I made the mistake of voting for Jimmy Carter, I always voted Republican as well as my wife. They will lose 3 votes from this household, that were straight republican in 2008.

We will write in Paul no matter what, my neo-con days are over.

Voting means taking

Voting means taking responsibility for that vote. I won't be responsible for either of the two evils being elected. Only Ron Paul will get my vote. If you vote for O'Romney you are wrong.

Romney is Obama with a clean slate.

And even worse, no chance to replace him in 2016. There's nothing that could make me vote for Romney. Not even a "coming to Jesus moment".

I would love to see him fix himself, and would even welcome him to help us, but I would need to see 20 years of him putting out good fruit before I'd give him a vote.

Is there a real difference?

On the issues that really matter there appears to be no significant difference between Robamas two faces. Just putting a Republican "brand" on Obomney does not make him become a limited government constitutional Republican.

All Romney needs to do to get our vote is show us he would apply the constitution to every decision, maintain rigorous fiscal discipline, place the rights of individuals above convenience of government agencies, eliminate the IRS, and work to remove all vestige of government that has no basis in the constitution.

Lets see
NDAA - Would sign in a heart beat.
unconstitutional war- target Iran
IRS remain and simplify but not reduce taxes
Uses Paul Ryans budget that makes no cuts to budget or reduces government size.
No elimination of agencies that have no basis in the constitution
Romney care forced participation and left the costs to future administrations.

How is he better than Obama and we can always write in Ron Paul, vote for good rather that two equally evil.

If the economy goes south in

If the economy goes south in the next presidential term then the party in the White House will suffer, either party. If we are trying to take over the Republican party for 2016, then it would be preferred that the Democrats are in office when any serious recession takes place. Matters not what the party in power does, a serious recession always results in rejection of the party holding the White House.

To people saying you'll write

To people saying you'll write your name in... In my state write ins Are NOT counted if the candidate doesn't declare for write in status. You might as well vote for governor Johnson. Consider this. What is the law in your state?

FYI I know this bc I wrote christine the witch o'donnel in for county sheriff in DE. I looked at the results and was a bit disappointed.


No,I cannot wait...

Until the SHTF so we can clean it up a bit.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

Hell to the NO!

Hell to the NO!


What would be the point of voting for the same policies that got us into this mess?



I will be writing Ron Paul

I will be writing Ron Paul in, but, if there was a gun to my head and I could only choose to vote for Romney or Obama, I'd rather the devil I know than the one I don't as another poster responded to a similar comment of mine...


NO.. and that's the point. This whole "getting behind Romney to beat Obama" crap is part of what is wrong in politics. We need to vote for someone who will represent us, not play a team sport. If Obama wins, we lose. If Romney wins, we lose.

No Way !

I will write in Ron Paul, which is legal in my state and is counted !


If you mean

loses the GOP nomination, then no, I will not vote for Romney. I will write in Ron Paul's name on the ballot.

They are the same.

Why would I vote for either one? Left wing/right wing...one bird. Paul is not one of them. Only Paul!



I'll write in

Chuck Baldwin.

explain to him it like this

tell him to think about how he feels about obama, then tell him to imagine having that feeling every time he thinks of romney too. then tell him that's how we feel.

Tell your friends

if they think starting wars with other countries and killing innocent people is cool, then go join the military and take their fucking asses over there and kill baby! Leave the Presidential voting to us.
