Enough with the suggestions about the third party candidate

"Enough with the suggestions about the third party candidate, I don't give a damn. I'm voting for one man. I am staying this course, and when this is over, whether he gets in the white house or not, those that stood with me, I know I can count on them and go into battle with them, because the next battle is to clean up the GOP..I WILL NOT QUIT!" - TMOT

RECENT POLLING: Gary Johnson at 13% in New Mexico, 5% Nationally

"Public Policy Polling reports that former New Mexico governor Gary Johnson is still in double-digits in his home state. Polling at 13%, Johnson’s support is remarkably widespread and draws almost equally from Obama and Romney in the state. In fact, as PPP notes, among partisan voters Johnson only takes a significant share of Republicans, but he wins 24% of independents, thus eliminating the President’s lead with that group."

Thanks for posting Trevor

It seems nuts to me that we have to explain to people here on the dp why they should support a candidate that has the ability to take the message of liberty to a national audience in the upcoming debates.

Nothin like some good ol spam

first thing in the morning. Thanks Trev.

De criminalize Liberty!

Spam is Good with Mustard

I ate some for lunch. Ron Paul and Gary Johnson are great for America, too.

TMOT Your a Champion!

A True Patriot and Champion of Liberty!

No Principles will be bent or broken!

End the Fed!

Freedom will Reign!

No principles bent or broken?

what principle is supported by discouraging support of the ONLY liberty candidate still in the race?

It's clear to me the only people left on the dailypaul are nutjob conspiracy theorists...and not a single one of you able to make a lucid argument against supporting Gary Johnson.

Oh there been plenty of arguments . . .

You GJ trolls are intent on ignoring them though.

You do realise that you are discrediting Gary Johnson and the big L Libertarian Party, by incessantly pushing GK onto us, when EVERYONE here is getting ready for Tampa, as TAMPA is going to be the Shot heard across the World!!, The World Media will HAVE to talk about it, Ron Paul, his deleagates, and his Policies, His name will be recoginized GLOBALLY. (sans a false flag)

Its RON PAUL OR RON PAUL Up to and more than likely After TAMPA!

Ron Paul deserves our support, He has been supporting US for over 30 years,
He is who inspired us all,
He is who has tought us So much,
He is the person who laid out how the economic system through fractional reserve central banking is stealing wealth from us every single day by inflation!
It is Ron Paul who deserves the Attention, it is Ron Paul's Principles that need to be Tought, SO PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF FREEDOM, LET US FOCUS ON RON PAUL AND THE PROMOTION OF HIS PRINCIPLES AND POLICIES RIGHT NOW LIKE WE ALL ARE DOING!

WE WILL NEVER GIVE UP! NEVER!

The Principle Of. . .

. . .staying the course.

Yeh, you'll really make your case and bring the masses of loyal Ron Paul supporters over to your camp by leveling insults against them.

Why doesn't GJ create his own site, "The Daily Johnson". Then you could bail out of here and avoid all of the "nutjob conspiracy theorists" and affirm each other over there. No doubt the site would be loaded in no time with all of his supporters.

“It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie...the greatest enemy of the State.” ~Joseph Goebbels

tried to do that

but the domain is taken...i'll be looking for another. but i won't let those of you who some how see Johnson as competition against Paul stop me from posting here as well.

you do understand that johnson is not seeking the gop nomination any longer right? you do understand that should ron paul get the gop nomination that johnson would drop out right? so why can't you support both especially when we need so badly to get johnson in the debates in order to continue to put the liberty message in front of a national audience.

You Do Understand That. . .

. . .regardless of whether Ron Paul gets the nomination and/or GJ drops out or stays in - the only name on my ballot for President of the United States of America will be RON PAUL.

I'm not on the Daily Paul to hawk votes for GJ. I'd even venture a wild guess and say that 95% of those who are on the Daily Paul are here for the same reason: One man - Ron Paul.

Which part of that are you not comprehending?

TMOT STFU

This is about the liberty movement and there is only one goddamn candidate who can get on the debate stage and talk about that and it's Gary Johnson.

I'm glad you bring this up.

I'm glad you bring this up.

Because the choices are:

Barack Obama - Fascio-Socialist Party

Mitt Romney - Socio-Fascist Party

Gary Johnson - Libertarian Party

You know, we just can't talk about this enough if you think about it. What do you think Michael?

"Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of liberty." - Thomas Jefferson

The way I see it,

since it's now obvious Ron Paul will not be nominated regardless of how hard the delegates fight in Tampa, whom you vote for for president is really your business. However, if the majority of us aren't going to get behind Obama or Romney (the only two with a chance to win), I see no reason why our movement should get involved at all in the presidential race. Just vote for whomever you want to for president and let God sort it out.

However, that doesn't mean we should stop campaigning, having moneybombs, etc. There are at least a dozen candidates running for Congress that support at least 85% of Ron Paul's political positions. While, none of them are as pure as Ron Paul (nobody is btw), they will get the Fed audited, demand a declaration of war by the Congress if the president wants to attack someone, end the TSA, protect internet privacy, get serious about cutting government spending, and many of them want to end the IRS. But, in order to do that, we've got to get united behind these candidates.

We have only begun to fight. Ron Paul's presidential campaign is only the end of the beginning.

Define "pure". Pure

Define "pure".

Pure Austrian? Pure Consitutionalist? Pure Libertarian? Pure social conservative?

Dixie,

you do realize, that Dr. Paul just needs a few hundred delegates to defect on the first round in order to blow this thing wide open, right? He's that close. And if I were him I'd be working on that and keeping a low profile too. I'm all for not giving up, but we do still need to fight to the last breath to get it done THIS year. btw I'm a paleocon too.

I understand.

But, most of us aren't delegates and won't ever have any contact with Romney delegates. Ron Paul has already for all practical purposes stated that Mitt Romney will be the nominee. I really do not believe he's just playing opossum. My point is we shouldn't put all our eggs in one basket. After two and a half months of conditioning, it shouldn't surprise or disappoint anyone if Dr. Paul doesn't win, but, it shouldn't slow us down either, since unlike in 2008 there are quite a few candidates worth campaigning for.

That's POSSUM

Not "Opossum"...just sayin...are you really from Dixie? LOL!

The GOP

is the only vehicle that will allow a true patriot candidate a place in the debates. It is the only vehicle that will give us a peaceful chance of changing things, period. I say this as someone who would rather not have to deal with the GOP, and has gone third party in the past.

I, Too, Voted Third Party

...in the past. Ron Paul once put his hopes in third parties.

I trust that he has studied the political landscape for decades, knows way more than he can say or many give him credit for. When he says changing the GOP from inside is the only way, I believe him.

I would love to know what was said to him by one third party candidate that he found so offensive he kicked him out of his office. I have a good idea.

Puritans - Separatists

Chances aren't exactly good that we will excoriate the GOP in the near future. The Puritans tried something similar many years ago.

We're too independent; we're for freedom - we won't let those tyrants rule our lives.

We will have to separate ourselves from them - when the time is right.

People don't realize

how many traps Dr. Paul has avoided so far. His base is inexperienced and doesn't see the icebergs and whirlpools that Dr. Paul has avoided as he steers this ship. He is trying to lead us through the one, narrow strait that has the possibility of getting us to our desired destination.

Ron Paul has made some terrible decisions

(jesse benton - need i say more) I don't trust him to make the best decision. What I do trust is the message and there is only one guy able to get it in front of a national audience and that's Gary Johnson.

And the "Relevator" becomes "the IRRELEVANT"...for the 3rd time! Hahaha!

Of

course you don't. I'm sure Johnson will do a better job explaining the Fed to a national audience (sarc). Good luck with that.
