A Plea For Unity in Attacking the Establishment in NovemberSubmitted by chris47601 on Tue, 08/28/2012 - 21:09
Ron Paul has said that he does not want to run 3rd party. Look folks. He's 76 and TIRED. His son's career is taking off and Ron is going to gracefully step aside. Why can't any of you see this?
He saw the writing on the wall and felt that his best chance to be influential was his last and that was to work privately with HIS party, the GOP, to make changes. He knows they won't stick to them, but it can't be said that he didn't try.
He wants to change the party from the inside out and bottom up. He has said that exact script over and over again, yet many of you insist that he is laying in wait, ready to spring a last second miracle win. It's not happening folks. He doesn't want it to happen. He is going to retire with his head high, knowing that he never compromised publicly.
That's great. But we don't have a retirement to ride off into right now. We have an election that is just 2 months away and we have to stop hanging our heads and collectively come up with the next best step to implement most of our needs this election! Pick a 3rd party candidate and vote for them. I don't care which one, but vote goshdangit.
If enough 3P candidates pull enough collective votes, maybe we can keep either main party candidate from getting enough electoral votes from winning. Then it can go to that crazy arsed Congress! What fun and chaos we can still create!
Join me in THIRD PARTY UNISON. Pick one. Anyone as long as they are on the ballot. Please!
