Do I just have 3 choices left for my vote

As I said in another post... I'm still praying for a miracle (and I'm not even religious). This country needs President Paul. If it doesn't happen, really I think I'm only left with 3 options:

1. Write in Ron Paul which is what I did 4 years ago. Doesn't count
2. Vote Johnson.
3. Say F the whole damn thing and stay at home

I really don't know what I will end up doing

There are lots of other third parties

Personally, I think the Constitution Party is a better fit for Paul supporters than the Libertarian party. Their party platform reads like a Ron Paul Manifesto, and their positions could reasonably attract the religious right conservatives. I believe they will replace the Republican party when it falls.

Here's why to WRITE-IN RON PAUL...

...because even if it doesn't count, it means that SOMEONE (hopefully a republican vote-counter) will have to see Ron Paul's name on your ballot.

It drives the point home that Dr. Paul would have beat Obama - while Romney will lose.

It's a protest vote which does NOT go to waste.

To my knowledge, computer vote-counting programs don't recognize write-in votes, so it means a human will have to see Ron Paul's name.

Here's the main point: Since most likely NONE of your mentioned choices will count in the end, why not make a statement?

AND of course - there always that chance because many states DO count write-in votes.

I WILL BE WRITING IN RON PAUL in November because I'll never have another chance to do so AND - because HE DESERVES IT!

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

Please - WRITE-IN RON PAUL...

...like I will be doing.

-Ron Paul

3 choices

Well, I have whittled mine down to two. Either Ron Paul wins the GOP nomination and I vote Republican, or Romney's drones carry on with their chicanery and Ron Paul does not win the nomination, impelling me to vote for Johnson.

I will say one other thing. After observing the primary and caucus rule-breaking, finger-breaking, lying and cheating by the GOP establishment; the GOP has earned my enmity for a long time, if not forever. They behaved as badly, or worse, as anything I would expect to come out of the Democrats.

Please don't stay home.

If there are liberty candidates on the ballot in your area for local or state offices, please go out and support them with your vote. We may have been screwed out of the presidential nomination, but we can still enact change at the lower levels.

My 2 cents: don't stay home

Write in Ron Paul or Mickey Mouse,
but let your voice be heard that you are not happy.

Staying home would just lump you in with those who don't know any better.

YOU know better.... but I feel your pain!

If you mean that your voice

If you mean that your voice will be heard in the sense of actually determining a presidential election, it won't. You have far, far more chance of being hit by a bus on the way to the polling place. If you mean that should be heard in terms of expressing your conscience, then we agree. For this reason, I'll vote for Johnson (if Paul doesn't get the nomination) at least if Johnson keeps saying the right things!
