What if Romney gets the nomination?

EDIT: Feel free to vocalize your dissent with an actual thought out response, instead of taking the easy way out by down voting and then moving on. Down vote, and then tell me why.

Has anyone considered their actions if Romney "wins" the nomination?

It's fair to say that the RNC will break every rule and play every trick to give Romney the nomination, so it shouldn't be a surprise if he gets it. I hope there is a fight on the floor, and I hope the real delegates give the RNC the biggest possible headache. But, one must consider the very real possibility that Romney walks away with it (as Romney himself said to Ben Swann that he is not worried at all about getting the nomination, therefore there is trickery afoot).

Personally, as soon as the announcement comes out for Romney being the nominee, I am throwing 100% of my support behind Gary Johnson. Johnson endorsed Ron Paul in 2008, and said during one of the debates this cycle that he would choose Ron Paul as his VP. Since then, he dropped off the Republican ticket and is running as a Libertarian with Judge Jim Gray as his VP. GJ and RP have nearly identical platforms and, IMO, GJ is a better debater.

Best of all, he'll be on the ballot in all 50 states.

He'll be in the debates if he gets more support (assuming he is included in polls). The revolution is not about the man, but about the ideas. I believe that with RP getting out of politics, the torch of the revolution falls to Gary Johnson.

But that's just me. I recommend you research GJ yourself and decide what you want to do. Abstaining if Romney gets the nom does nothing, IMO. Supporting GJ and building his base will send a message.

If that happens the GOP votors will be in a frantic panic

when Obama and 90% of the MSM unloads goodies such as criminal offshore banking accounts and other nefarious activity that will cause Romneys numbers to plummet like a lead weight dropped from your hand.

I can't wait to see this because you know in Obama's lust to retain power he has already probably used the IRS,CIA and Justice Dept to scour the planet to get every speck of dust on Mitt. I just hope it happens sooner than later.

Crazy prediction: Mitt Romney will suddenly get some kind of health problem or family crisis that will cause him to drop out of the race dragging his little yes boss boy Ryan with him. We should be prepared for this crazed prediction because those GOP voters are going to raise hell when they finally realize they are doomed with Romney/Ryan.

November 6th 2012 I voted for Dr.Ron Paul

That is an interesting prediction.

I think the GOP has too much pride to get rid of Romney after the convention, though.

If he gets it, Obama will get

If he gets it, Obama will get a second term and then probably be known as the worst president in american history as he presides over its fall.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

probably campaign for

probably campaign for johnson, he is not ron paul but it is closer than obama or romney, and i would rather vote for someone closer to my beliefs than not vote or write in which they probably wot even look at even if they say they report them, but lets just hope that we will be victorious on the floor today!

For me, it's very simple.

If Willard (can't honestly say "win", so I have to say) is thrown the nomination, Obama gets another 4 years.

My action in November? Write in Ron Paul.

BTW, Having already done own research on GJ... NO WAY! The Liberty torch falls to GJ? Seriously? NO WAY! It might have, had he thrown in with Dr. Paul. He didn't. He's done.

You say you would have been with GJ had he ran with RP, but since he didn't, you don't like him?


I'm saying I did my homework and learned I don't care very much for GJ. His not going with RP only showed me GJ's true colors.

If Romney wins the nomination, I will either write-in Ron Paul or will vote Obama (simply because Obama is better on foreign policy, civil rights, and is not as much of a corporatist).

No, Dr. NO

If you vote for Barrage O'Bombers then the blood of HIS crimes will be on YOUR hands. Please, for your own sake, think this through.

Never forget, voting is violence, and the only moral use of subterfuge, duplicity, and violence is in defense of the innocent.

Write in The Good Doctor, vote for The Iron Man or one of the Commie Greens, but please do not vote for Bario Bush (or for Slick Willard, for that matter, but mercifully, you already seem settled on that one.)

Romney already has the no,mination in CA

Our sec of state has Romney listed as THE GOP nomiee. I write her three weeks ago and asked how Romney got that, no response, but i assume if she did respond it would be to say he won CA and so goes the nation.

I have worked hard to get Ron paul THE nomination, and that's how I have a committee seat. While I prefer Ron Paul, if Romney steals the nomination, how it will work for me and my committee, is it makes us ALL equals as no one wanted Romney.

So I think for me and my committee, we will spend the next four years building a Ron Paul platform and vetting Ron Paul Republicans for offices and as delegates.

Yes I have.

But I'll cross that bridge when it comes.

Free includes debt-free!

he is the only candidate (on the ballot) who will not bomb Iran.

Romney steals the GOP "nomination"...

The nomination of Mitt Romney must turn to ashes in his mouth! Every possible means to publicise the stealing of the nomination, and the abuse of the Ron Paul challengers, must be pursued. Appropriately titled websites, blogs, and facebook pages e.g. "Romneycrimes.com", "GOP-GreedyOldPirates.com","Romney for President--of the criminal element in our society", and so on must be set up and popularized.

Those truly filthy, sociopathic personalities feed off the admiration and support of others. Deprive them of that support! Supporters of Romney (or O'bomber) must be seen to be the ignorant, intolerant, and misguided "sheeple" that they are. Continue to spread the truth, not only through Ron Paul and his books and articles but other Constitutionalist, libertarian, or paleoconservative organizations, academic centers, advocacy groups, and appropriate single-issue groups that you can find. Avoid cheap (neocon) imitations. Tell all who will listen how we--and the American people--were ROBBED of a Ron Paul Presidency to accomodate the powerlust, greed, and warmongering brutality of Romney and his criminals. If we do this as well as we have been doing, the America, and perhaps even the world, will be a very different country in 2013 and beyond than it has been in the past.

Everyone will be asking if Romney can do this to his fellow Republicans, what WON'T he do in the oval office? Ithink that we can emerge from Romney's dog-and-pony show having them see that the Ron Paul challenge was the least of his problems going into the so-called election and beyond, whether Gary Johnson beocmes a credible third-party alternative or not!

Gary Johnson is nothing like Ron Paul. I will not be supporting him. I will most likely abstain this year if Ron Paul does not get the nomination.

The Pop Vote is just a psychological weapon to weaken your

resolve in the fight for freedom and liberty.

Don't settle and don't give up.

Use that discontent for meaningful rEVOLution baby!

Fight the Ron Paul blackout on the Daily Paul (now 'P AU L'), put his removed poster back as your avatar:


Fine by me. I disagree that he's nothing like Ron Paul, but if that's your conclusion then so be it.

I just don't want people to get so caught up in a Ron Paul cult of personality that they fail to explore the "what's next" option if things don't go the way we want it to. Thinking several steps ahead keeps the liberty movement from being derailed.

EDIT: I wasn't going to go here, but I actually can't help myself. Do you truly, honestly believe that they're nothing alike? End the fed, end the drug wars, end foreign aid, end overseas intervention, strengthen defense at home, end the IRS, end social welfare programs.... I mean, that's a lot of shared platforms. Do I also need to remind you that Paul ran for president the first time as a Libertarian? So, to say they're nothing alike seems like a little bit of purposeful dissonance on your part in order to convince YOURSELF they're nothing alike so that you have a clear conscience abstaining.

Look at my profile. I've been a DP member for 9 months. I'm not a GJ troll. I've done my homework and decided what my next move is if Paul doesn't get the nomination, and I believe it's the right one.


"Once you go Matt..."

Thanks for your excellent response, particularly WITH EDIT!

I "begrudgingly" voted for Ron Paul in 1988, even though I had hoped to be voting for Russell Means.

I "begrudgingly" voted for Chuck Baldwin in 2008.

While hope may live for a few more hours perhaps, it appears I'll be "begrudgingly" voting for Gary Johnson next.

From a playership view that runs from 1974 (first registering Republican) and 1976 (switching to the LP), 2012 still doesn't quite feel like the end game. This fight has advanced astonishingly quickly in the last quadrennium, but we still have a long way to go.

"What's next" is ALWAYS a pertinent question.
