Unite or die! Romney, Obama, Johnson or Write-in Paul? Which helps our movement most?Submitted by Minarchist on Mon, 06/11/2012 - 21:10
We must unite or our movement will lose all its momentum and power.
Assuming Paul's calculations are accurate, that he will get no more than 500 delegates, we must assume Romney will be the GOP nominee.
So, then what? Our choices are:
1) Vote for Romney
2) Vote for Obama
3) Vote for Johnson
...a) Demonstrates this is a liberty movement, not a Ron Paul cult.
...b) Votes are counted.
...c) If Johnson gets 15% in the polls he can be in the debates.
...d) If he gets 5% (?) of the vote, the LP gets federal funding like the Demopublicans.
...e) A significant number of votes demonstrates the liberty movement is powerful and not just about Ron Paul.
4) Write-in Ron Paul
...a) Nothing feels as good as voting for the man.
5) Abstain from voting
Whatever we decide to do, if we all do the same thing it will have more impact.
So what should we do (
13-5?), and why does that choice help our movement the most?
