Please stop with the Ron Paul attacks and Gary Johnson "Endorsments" Please!Submitted by stoffer4freedom on Mon, 05/21/2012 - 23:04
Look, I understand these past few weeks have been utter confusion and it's ticking some people off. But please stop with attacking Ron Paul! And please stop with attacking Jesse Benton. Ron Paul selected Benton to run his campaign, so when you attack him, you are indirectly attacking Ron Paul. You are essentially saying, "Ron has all the right ideas and he's been consistent for over 30 years...but I'm not sure he can pick the right people for his cabinet". THIS NEEDS TO STOP!
I for the time being, believe Jesse sent this email out for a specific reason...a sort of throw some bait out to the media and catch them at their own game. But, I can't be certain...nobody besides those very close to Benton knows the true intention of the email.
With that said, for some of those still a bit confused on here RON PAUL HAS NOT DROPPED OUT!!!!! He has only stopped spending money on primaries that are coming up and has instead focused his attention on the Delegate process. He has stopped spending money on the beauty contest and is instead putting his money toward gaining as many delegates as possible to go to Tampa. If you ask me, that's pretty brilliant.
Finally, since Ron Paul has not dropped out, I please ask that you stop making articles about trying to vote for Gary Johnson. Yes Johnson is a very good man, and I assume that if Ron wasn't running, Johnson would have the "Paulbots" on his side. But Ron Paul IS STILL RUNNING! And when you come on to the dailypaul (which is now one of the most highly visited political website in the world) and try to promote another Presidential candidate, regardless of his beliefs and ideas, it makes us look...well unsure of the Doctor.
*When I refer to "you", I am referring to all previous and most likely future posts and comments bashing Benton, or Paul, or promoting Gary Johnson
*I know some of these posts bashing Ron, and Benton, or promoting Gary are trolls trying to dismantle the movement. I'd like to take the famous Anonymous motto...trolls, "we do not forgive, we do not forget, expect us"
