2016 Presidential Race: Drafting One Liberty Candidate Isn't EnoughSubmitted by October2007 on Wed, 08/29/2012 - 18:58
I'm noticing a lot of posts on the DP asking "Who will be the next Ron Paul?"
Some of you are saying it's Rand Paul, Gary Johnson, Judge Napolitano, Tom Davis, Tom Woods, and Justin Amash.
For some strange reason the consensus on here is that we need to get behind one single candidate... I couldn't disagree more.
I realized a few months ago that trying to get a liberty candidate elected won't happen unless the masses understood our message... And obviously, the masses don't understand it... YET!
If we really want to end the Neo-con's grip, since the media won't do it, we need to educate the populace and one of the best ways of "waking" people up is through the presidential debates.
I'm sure most of you can relate because you discovered Ron Paul by watching the debates... (So did I)
You see, millions of people watch the presidential debates and I think we need to exploit that.
Forget about winning the presidency... Presidents can't do much without the support and understanding of the people. We need to worry about educating educating educating and more educating.
So here's my Idea:
We draft a Super Team of liberty candidates to run for president just to have them all on the debate stages:
Rand Paul, Judge Napolitano, Gary Johnson, Tom Davis, Tom Woods, and Justin Amash... Hell even Peter Schiff!
Just imagine what that will do to the narrative... It would be earth shattering!
Their TV commercials shouldn't be cheesy political ads, but smart educational clips about "blowback", sound money, the Federal Reserve, and many other interesting subjects... Remember it's all about education.
The Neo-Cons would crap their pants if they had to debate a bunch of our brilliant guys and chances are, they would be completely outnumbered on stage. That alone would send a HUGE message to the establishment.
That's when the crazy power-hungry lunatics will realize that their time is up and WE'RE HERE TO TAKE OVER THEIR PARTY!
So I suggest we work on drafting a super team of liberty candidates in 2016... The more the merrier.
Who's with me?
