2012 Contingency PlansSubmitted by bostonJumper on Wed, 08/01/2012 - 12:39
One of the biggest things that's been troubling me is what all the Ron Paul supporters will do IF he does not secure the Republican nomination in Tampa. I see the majority of supporters doing one of three likely scenarios:
1) Some write-in Paul's name
2) Some vote for Gary Johnson
3) Some abstain from voting altogether
The worst case in my opinion is that we all split off in different directions and therefore don't have as big an impact as we can and should.
Personally, I feel the third option is terrible and that Gary Johnson may be the best alternative (perhaps even Ron Paul could be offered a position in his administration). Regardless, I would like to see some discussion on the topic so that we can come to some type of collective "contingency plan" IF (and trust me - I still haven't given up hope) Ron Paul does not secure the nomination coming out of Tampa.
In addition to discussion, is there a way on DailyPaul.com to conduct polling to see where people's opinions are?
