November Results Predicted: Obama: 46% Romney: 38% Johnson: 16%Submitted by C_T_CZ on Wed, 08/29/2012 - 09:33
The GOP establishment apparently has a really, really difficult time understanding the term "blowback". I think it's a great opportunity for a lesson.
I hope the Liberty Movement can now put aside minor differences and throw all support behind Gary Johnson. Is he Ron Paul? Nope. Will he win? Maybe! But is he a good guy who deserves the sincere consideration of Liberty minded Americans- and importantly someone who respects and admires Ron Paul and his policies? Resoundingly, Yes!
The BEST thing that can happen in the November election is that Obama beats Romney, by a margin covered by Johnson.
The GOP establishment will spend the next 4 years bitching about Ron Paul supporter blowback - they will undoubtedly find our tough love medicine difficult to swallow. This will serve two critical functions. One, politicians only respect what they fear, and our votes snatching victory from Romney's hands will give them cause to reconsider their positions to gain our support. Two, if the GOP continues to spiral down the neocon hole of destruction, it gives the Liberty Movement a positive, constructive, and credible alternate path forward outside of the GOP, should we choose to take it.
edit: I changed the headline and also updated the post to say he may win in November, per feedback.
