It's Still Possible - Call Ron Paul And Tell Him That You Would Support A Libertarian Run! Serious Post - Not Hype

So we all know Ron is making a special announcement on Jay Leno on September 4th. I know many of us are hoping it's that Ron is running Indy or third party. Some are hoping he will endorse Johnson.

I just got off the phone with someone very close to Ron and want to tell everyone that a third party run is possible. At this point that is not what the announcement is going to be. It's also not a Johnson or Romney endorsement, so says my well placed source. Again, take it worth a grain of salt, but I trust that this person is close enough to Ron to know.

Up until know I have believed that there was ZERO chance Ron would run third party. However, after my phone call I believe there is a glimmer of hope. It's too late for Ron to get on the ballot as an Indy, however Johnson has said in the past that he would step aside for Ron.

Now for the bad news..Ron does not think the grassroots would fully back him because of all of the Rand and Benton bashing that has taken place, but RON would LOVE to make a last major push for Liberty in the presidential debates.

WE HAVE TO TELL RON BEFORE SEPTEMBER 4th THAT WE WILL SUPPORT HIM AND FUND HIM AND BACK HIM. If he knows that, there is still a chance he could change his mind, and if Gary really will step aside for Ron, Ron may take one final shot as a Libertarian. There is no chance Johnson will be anywhere near 15% and therefore no chance Gary is going to be in any debates. However, if Ron is the LP nominee and Gary as VEEP (as much as I dislike Gary, I could accept that) Gary would be debating Biden.

It's a long shot, but apparently still simmering in the back of Ron's mind. We need to ask Gary to step aside and make sure Ron knows we will be with him all the way! When you to Gary's site it loads an automatic video that is all about RON PAUL. So Ron Paul might as well be the candidate.

To Quote Paul Ryan: LET'S GET IT DONE! Let's get to work guys and gals and make this happen. Make sure you tell your liberty friendly email lists and any other liberty boards you post on as well.

If this is true, someone spoke with Dr. Paul today. Here is what that person has to say. This is taken directly from the facebook link above...."I spoke with Dr. Paul this afternoon about continuing the fight by running on a third party ticket. I want to share what he said to me and let you know what needs to be done to make this happen. It can happen, but it's going to take some work. If you are willing to support this effort, please share this event and call in:

This specific event is being discussed here on DP...

I have no idea if this is real or not. It could be a scam to sign us all up for Amway or for Gary Johnson...However, if its true, things are getting very interesting. KEEP CALLING AND EMAILING.
The main mail box at the Johnson campaign is full, but you can still leave a message by pressing 0. The number is 801 303-7922

Also, Ron's DC office VM is full, but the 2012 campaign number is still taking messages- 703-563-6620

Don't forget to email also. And pass the word along to everyone.

Energized Ron Paul - 3rd Party Can Win If We Wake Up - 09/10/08


GBAmerica: This video was done in 2008. Now really think about this, 60% of Americans were NOT happy at all with either candidate (in 2008). Now? I would not doubt it that it is higher today. If we can get all four parties backing one! It's all about the message! Our liberties! (Green Party, Lib Party, Constitution Party, and you know some of the Republican Party will follow … Sarah Palin supporters … and Democrats that cannot stand Obama! We all know this!

Ron Paul 2012 - It's Almost Here!

Do it Dr. Paul

I will back you all of the way.

Someone from church just

Someone from church just called and told me that the mailbox for Ron's Washington office telephone number is full. Keep up the good work. Make sure you email too.

It's just as important to ask Gary Johnson to make a public statement about this. He mentions Ron in every speech and statement he gives. The front of his website currently loads a video that every visitor sees about...You guessed it..Ron Paul.

Let's fill up Gary's email and voice mail and ask him to make sure Ron knows he can have the LP spot if he wants it with no hard feelings from Gary. Make sure your liberty friends, your email lists, your facebook friends, your twitter friends, and any other liberty forums you participate in know to act quickly...Our window is very narrow.

To quote a different Paul...Paul Ryan..."Let's get it done.."

Ron Paul 2012 - It's Almost Here!

if they did a

run the Libertarian ticket money bomb I'd donate if Dr. Paul was on the ticket. That way he'd at least see we were serious about supporting him till the end. It ain't over till it's over. What say you Gary Johnson? Or Hell, I'd even support Gary Johnson if he explicitly stated Dr. Paul would be the Treasury secretary.


Go for 3rd Party Dr. Paul!

If Romney won the nomination at the RNC I probably would have voted for him as the Republican candidate. Since he stole the nomination, I can't. Such dirty dealing! Remember, Ron Paul supporters played fair and square, non-violently and respectfully - because that is the expectation Dr. Paul set for us. No one can convince me Romney had no idea of the dirty dealings. His supporters follow his expectations.

Here's the Reality Check of the RNC rule change.

Nothing about his leads me to believe Romney will be any better than Obama, their policies are basically the same. We have nothing to loose by backing the 3rd party candidate. Give 'em hell Dr. Paul!!!!! (Note: if Obama is re-elected, at least we're done with him in 4 years - we could be stuck with Romney for 8!)

His mailbox is full on DC number!

Good Job guys!!!:^)

Little Bit Farm


Wars not over folks. Different battle now thats all.


Blessed are the peacemakers

Ron Paul -- It's still possibe

We are behind you 100%!

Someone from WeAreChange in Kansas posted ugliness to Carol Paul

Here is what we are up against. This ugly statement was posted on Carol Paul's facebook page. This is why Ron Paul needs to be convinced that WE WANT HIM as President in any party!


Ryan D Hall shared Susan Wolfe's status.

Mrs. Paul, I hope you know that what is being said in these next few statements is how a lot of us feel :(

It's over. Romney is the chosen one, who will go up against Obama and who will lose.

I am convinced Ron never intended to have a chance. His campaign blew every opportunity there was to tell the rest of the country about him. They fucked over the grassroots activists - called them names like "ragamuffin" and told them to be polite and behave and to get along. They started acting exactly like the
campaigns they've been up against all this time.

As the grassroots activists' fingers were being broken and they were being assaulted, and they were being arrested, the campaign sat on its laurels - probably dying of laughter that there were dumbasses out there who were just freaking sheep enough to continue fighting for it.

His campaign for 2012 was nothing more than a way to keep the activists engaged just long enough to convince them to wait another four years for Rand in order to try to effect change.

I have been telling people for years...it's all a scam...a fraud. The jig is up. It's all a game. A show for the minions. And people are going to fall for it again. They are going to wait...wait for Rand...a Jr. Senator with no experience...and they will try to convince the rest of the country to support him...and they will fail. Because it's all a scam.

And next year, when the "Fed" is "Ended"...people will really think he accomplished something, when in reality, the Fed was ALWAYS supposed to end in 2013. It's the end of the 100 year charter. And it will probably usher in the final total complete collapse of the dollar, followed closely by the implementation of the global monetary system full-force.

This is how it's always been. It's how it always will be. It's Ordo ab Chao into the Novus Ordo Seclorum. That's all it is.

So I can totally understand the statement

"Ron does not think the grassroots would fully back him because of all of the Rand and Benton bashing that has taken place"

We need to convince him otherwise!

We are 100% behind you Ron Paul!

Ron should run as Gary Johnson's V.P.

No running foul of sore loser laws that way, and this close to elections, it's probably the only realistic option.

Also, Johnson's current veep is a nobody.

Support the Constitution of the United States

Mind you I don't care what his position on the ticket is.

I see I got voted down for making a harmless statement.

If it could be worked, a Paul/Johnson ticket would be out of this world. A win-win.

Support the Constitution of the United States

I will support Ron Paul FOREVER!

...if he runs he will have my money, my time, and whatever influence I can muster...

i don't care what label he falls under

i don't agree with benton...i'm not voting for benton

Front page bump

Front page bump

Those who are just pushing Gary Johnson

while having Ron Paul run instead of him is even a possibility -- you're not fooling anyone.

It's not about the party, it's about the man.
And Ron Paul is THE MAN.

Ron Paul for Prez of the Libertarian Party.
GJ, step aside & be his VP.

bump up

why isn't this on front page

I think he could win.

He's more likable and popular than Perot ever was, he could grab the independents, the disheartened Obama supporters, the Republicans who, deep down, hate Mitt Romney and think he's a mistake at best, and a shill meant to lose at worst. Some Dems could be won over by his anti-war stance -- he just needs to explain his social policy ideas to them better.

The only people that want Romney are the Israel First, Muzzie Hatin' Neocons because they know he will bend over for Nodding Yahoo and destroy the world if Bibi asked.

The rest of the GOP will vote for whatever white guy they think has a better chance of beating "The Secret Muslim/Marxist Agent Occupying the White House." If they think their vote will be wasted on Romney, they may join us to tip the scales.

The only problem I see is the "Sore Loser Laws." If they are a real thing, Ron would have to be VP to Gary.


the liberty movement needs a third party RP run before they will understand what we are up against. I'd hate to see all of that effort wasted, but it seems that some of us still have some lessons to learn about how to fight smart. When he polls over 20% and still isn't in the debates, maybe people here will wake up and start understanding why the strategy that Ron Paul has given us is the best strategy. Ron Paul can't do the work for us, but we can accomplish great things if we don't let ourselves get distracted by all of the silly strategies that are based on the premise that our democratic system is more than an illusion. If we unite and push forward with confidence, we will start winning the PR war and the political war because they will expose themselves as they fight us.

Thanks for your great comments, from other comments, loser law

doesn't apply in presidential election. Yeah!!! Sarah Palin likes Ron and with the way Romney/RNC/GOP took over and unfairly treated Ron and his delegates plus changing the rules in 2016, let us hope that Sarah and tea parties across the nation would vote for Ron too!


bump up

isn't this more important than Wead's comments on Romney gossip?

Whatever Dr Paul decides

I'm with him 100%. If he sees any possibility of Romney falling before Nov due to his involvement with a number of scandals, he may keep to the sidelines with hopes of snatching the nomination, but I don't think it's even possible anymore now that they denied his nomination at the RNC. They would just but another Romneyesque in his place.

If this country ever needed a 3rd party, now is the time.

He Can Run on the Libertarian ticket now, We can't afford to

wait and see if Romney will fall. Now is our time and all we need to do is get Ron on the Libertarian ticket so he can be in the national debates. Wow, can you image the viewership with Ron, Romoney and Obama all on stage debating each other. I bet we can count on Ron to perform his best at these debates, I don't think he would hold back anything. Once the American people had a chance to hear Ron and compare him to the other two, no doubt he could win this election!


2008 is NOT 2012

This is propeganda and a LIE brought to us by LIARS who want to protect the GOP.

Granger, Why Don't You Believe This Post? Ron Paul never ruled

out running 3rd party. You can still stay in the Republican party and vote for Ron this November. I think Ron would run 3rd party and only needs to know he has our support. Gary has said he would step aside to let Ron run. We could very well win this election. Ron could also be in the National Debates because he would poll above the required percentage. It would be an excellent opportunity for Ron to spread his message to millions whom will be watching the debates now that the election is only a little over 2 months away.


They are probably supporting Romney now.

Their committee seat means more than liberty.


For Liberty's sake!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bumping from 3rd Page - Mods This Really Needs to Be Front Page

and at the top. We have a chance to encourage Ron Paul to run 3rd party and we can't do it if his supporters don't see this MOST IMPORTANT POST! Thank you.


lotsa meaningless topics

being pushed instead of this
