Maddow crazy like a foxSubmitted by nathanv on Sun, 07/15/2012 - 12:56
People have been taking notice that RonPaul is getting more media coverage.
Well Rachel Maddow is licking her lips in anticipation of Ron Paul supporters repaying the RNC for the poor treatment they have endured this nominating process.
Most libertarians will not vote strategy in November, they will vote 3rd party or stay home...unless the media rubs salt in their wounds.
Libertarians are as frustrated with the Dems as they are the Republicans and maybe even more so with the Republicans.
Voting from conscious for candidates like Gary Johnson or another 3rd party candidate who lines up with our values has been errantly called a protest vote in years past....but what if there really was a protest vote? What if there was a big "THANK YOU" to the RNC from 15% of Republicans?...gasp..a vote for Obama?
Romney has sealed his fate by not throwing Ron Paul a bone, and I believe that in itself is enough to cost him the election. But the likes of Rachal Maddow and others could very easily get disenfranchised voters off the couch in November to drive home a Democratic victory by playing on the frustrations of her enemies.
By all accounts this presidential race is a coin toss...so while Romney is sniffing for morsels at the NAACP to edge Obama, any future efforts pandering to Constitutionalists may prove tacticly disastrous.
