Not going to happen. I do

Not going to happen. I do have more respect for GJ than for all other candidates running with the obvious exception of Dr. Paul. But I don't vote for second place. I'm voting for Dr. Paul.

Because you prefer fourth

Because you prefer fourth place????

Seriously, that's where Ron Paul will place IF he does well. He could actually get bumped from that by someone lesser known but on the ballot in several states.

Unless of course, Romney is "tragically" hit by a bus, has a meteor land on him or gets crushed in his own car elevator. Personally, I'm praying for a lightning bolt.

I don't vote for MY second

I don't vote for MY second place was the implication, which was rather easy to understand in the context I wrote it. Down-vote for being a jackass.

There are a lot of things that can happen before, at, or after the convention. Romney could release his tax returns, or even worse, he could not release them. Investigations into his work time at Bain capital could yield new information. The economy could continue to collapse and people could continue to realize that the two parties are the same.

In baseball, when you hit a ground ball right at the short stop, who fields it cleanly, you still run to first base and actually TOUCH the base, even if you think you were thrown out.

Okay, but is Ron Paul going

Okay, but is Ron Paul going to run independent?

Why in God's name

would you presume anyone here knows that answer, or if we did that we'd ever tell you?

There are no politicians or bankers in foxholes.

But that's the only serious

But that's the only serious option for getting him on the ballot.

You've been unable to sell that turd here

spritzing it with perfume and rolling it in glitter won't help.

Reality? Do you actually

Reality? Do you actually think that GJ has a better chance of winning the presidency than Ron Paul in this election? He does not.

Yes, actually, at this point

Yes, actually, at this point I do.

Look at what would happen if Romney were run over by a bus and somehow Ron Paul was nominated.

Barack Obama would instantly whip out the Ron Paul newsletters which are unbelievably damning. I know, Ron Paul supporters don't believe it, but the people being asked to vote for him will believe it. They are in his name. They use the first person. They say things like "I tried to stop this when I was Congressman", etc, etc. They will take every voter he needs to beat Obama and it will pull the rug right out from under them.

If these weren't out there? Yes, Paul would have a better chance.

The glitter and perfume weren't enough

so you slapped on the 'Reality' label?

Ummm, no. Reality is

Ummm, no. Reality is reality because it is reality.

I understand

that's what the sign read. It must be true.

Reminded me of a Bacon quote ....

Gary Johnson?

Maybe next time. I think he's would be light years better than than the Obama/Romney tag team, but he's got some hard work ahead of him. Somebody, sometime, somewhere, IS going to figure out how to mount a successful third party run. Obviously, 2012 isn't going to be it, but someday...........

Get used to disappoinment Gary

Or why don't you hold your breath.

You people

bashing Gary Johnson sounds just like all the times Ron Paul got bashed by the establishment. What is up with this cult of personality thing?

Does anyone here think that

Does anyone here think that Ron Paul will endorse Johnson?

I would like to see Ron Paul

I would like to see Ron Paul endorse Ron Paul. I would also like to see Ron Paul ask Mitt Romney to endorse him.

Also Expected -

You will pay to buy a ticket for Paul " Johnson" Fest ...when a ticket to the event Ron Paul will be at is free!

I am!

I would vote for him if I

I would vote for him if I believed this was a real election .. and that the "tv" candidates weren't secretly handpicked by some unknown conspiratorial entity ... And if I believed that the voting process is not rigged ...

But. Neither statements are true in my opinion.

Only Ron Paul deserves my vote

The slogan press on has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race. No person was ever honored for what he received. Honor has been the reward for what he gave.

Ron Paul was secretly

Yepper

It must be him.

;/

the man is free to expect whatever he wants to . . .

expect, but there are--

98 days until the 1st of November; who knows what will have happened by then?

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

I actually wouldn't be

I actually wouldn't be surprised to see monkeys fly out of your butt.

The monkey feces being thrown around here must come from somewhere nearby.
