On Whether to Vote For Romney or NotSubmitted by ultimation on Wed, 08/08/2012 - 23:01
I do not know how many people there may be that have not decided how they will vote should Ron Paul's name not appear on their respective state's ballot this November. Perhaps because I am a recently "converted" Ron Paul supporter this decision has been harder for me than the long-time supporters.
But for those who have not decided I have a suggestion. Do we want to act in such a manner as to help more freedoms being taken away from us? Of course not. We all aim to see liberty restored in this nation. But would a second Obama term necessarily set us back? Even with a Democratic President in office, a conservative Congress and Senate could keep things in balance. It would also keep people awake in both parties and increase the chance of a Liberty President next time around.
We have already seen the R3VOLution take hold at the local and even state levels. Liberty minded candidates are winning State representative and local positions. Eventually governors are going to be in support of the revolution. We're even winning national Representatives already. Ted Cruz, although not 100% Ron Paul is expected to win his election. I have heard of other names likely or possible to win in November.
A second Obama term might not mean a loss of liberty during that same time. Many states are refusing to set up healthcare exchanges.
Anyhow, just some thoughts. I'm not completely ready to announce my decision myself, either. Sound logic? Am I off my rocker? Let me know what you think.
NOTE: I might have not been clear about my suggestion, gauging from the current # of negative votes. I'm suggesting that it's ok to vote 3rd party, write-in, or abstain from voting ONLY on the presidential ballot, and only in the event that Ron Paul's name is not on said ballot. I am not advocating a Romney nor Obama vote. Now if that's what you thought I meant then feel free to keep voting this thread down, but I'm actually saying that I don't think I could stomach voting for Romney if his name is on the ballot.
