Romney's suicide note to GOP - picking Paul Ryan. Romney has given up on winning

This is written from an Independent and Independent voter perspective.

Summary

Paul Ryan does nothing to help win large swing states like Florida and Ohio.
In Florida, Ryan will definitely have a negative effect.
Ryan will have a negative effect on all states, except those already strongly Republican.
Picking Ryan is a panic move by Romney to try and shore up his base to limit the scale of his losses.
It does nothing to try and gain states from where he is now.
I think that picking Ryan will turn out to be a worse move for Romney, than McCain's pick of Palin.
It is basically Romney's suicide note, he has given up on trying to win, just lose less badly by shoring up his base.

Picking Ryan just confirms my prediction of Obama 347, Romney 191.
I don't think it is bad enough to make it worse, except in the differential of percentage vote.
It certainly does not make Romney's loss any less.

"In the end, more than they wanted freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all -- security, comfort, and freedom. When ... the freedom they wished for was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free."

Can anyone help get this article published in the press?

(or elements therein)

Politico
Buzzfeed
Slate
Dem sites
etc.

Any other places that Indie's read.
Huffy Post would be ideal.

Any other suggestions?

2 weeks to Tampa.
If it is published we can use a Politico/Huffy/Buzzfeed article on Conservative sites.
Or
Push to get it mentioned on more mainstream media sites.WaPo/NYT/Maddow etc
