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!

Hello moderator...

You know the little check box that says "Promote to front page"???

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.


I'm starting to question whether the mods are awake.

I hope Ron Paul goes for it

It would really energize the movement.

Why isn't this Front Page yet?

I don't know about you guys, but I am not ready to let go yet...Come on Ron Paulers...just one more time...

keep going

People are posting gossip and stuff from 1990 instead of making this a priority

Ron Paul can't run 3rd party, independent, or write-in.

Ron can't run 3rd party, independent, or register to be a certified write-in candidate because of GOP Loyalty Oaths that he took. It's time for Ron Paul supporters to face the fact that Ron Paul is retiring and to look at other alternatives in the General Election in November.‎

"In order to be on the GOP Primary Ballot in at least 11 states, including Texas, Ron had to pledge that he would not seek the presidency on another ticket if he failed to secure the GOP nomination." - Jesse Benton, 2008


Anonymous Libertarians

This doesn't mean anything

1) Its 2008.
2) If this were true and mattered, the talking heads wouldn't have asked him if he were running 3rd party 6,000 times.

Oath or Contract?

Is an oath a contract? I believe it is an oral contract, and breech of contract by the GOP releases him from that Oath or Contract, the breech of contract is implied, as they cannot allow him to run for candidacy and then act to blockade his run with, banning signs, rigging ballot machines, denying him speaking time, changing the rules, ignoring Roberts Rules of Order,Scripting the votes for rule change etc. this would not be "allowing him to run" in fact it is quite the opposite, it is impedeing his run for Candidacy. This means said contract is null and void. That my friends would stand up in any court of law, as would the busdriver making laps, Obama's false birth certificate, and the ballot machine rigging in Illinois. Someone has to it take to the RNC in the form a disqualification for Romney.That would only leave... Ron Paul 2012. (Then Reality sinks in) We are run by a corrupt group of elitists, that puppeteer all of the politicians, and for fear of life and limb, or haveing to live at an average wage, They will do as they are told. Raise taxes collect taxes Squash any dissidents (thats us)throw us a bone, thats it. The Story of your enslavement continues, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xbp6umQT58A

Love of God , Love of Country, Love of family, Love of Life, Love of Liberty. I would take a bullet for this man.

Pledges can be broken....

In case of a national emergency....and, I would say America qualifies.

Somebody started a facebook event

Somebody already started a facebook event for this.

Here is Gary Johnson's facebook page.
Maybe a little persuasion here also?

Support: of course

Dear Ron: I will give $1000 if you will commit to go on national TV and tell the people:

  • You intend to release "criminals" and clear the records of those who only harmed themselves.
  • You intend to abolish the federal departments and agencies as advertised.
  • You will assert our ally status with Israel and commit to their defense only.
  • All the rest of your platform

God Bless

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

I hope

That he does run but I'm not holding my breath.... it would be amazing

Ron Paul Reads the Daily Paul. Front Page this so he can See it

Ron Paul isn't going to be able to see our support if it's buried in the 2nd or 3rd page of the forum. Please front page this so we can guage support from everyone.

I think they all want to see Ron Paul as Prez of the Libertarian Party. Gary? Your gracious offer now, please?

We Can Count on A Lot of the guests being trolls for Romney and

Obama because they are going to watch us closely to see what Ron and his supporters are up to. The last thing they want to see his Ron run 3rd party because they know both of them will lose voters. For that many guests we sure do have a lot of people interested in our movement, wouldn't you say. Ron Paul's message is popular and we have a good chance to win this election for him.



look at all the unimportant BS posts, when this is what we've been fighting for all this time

That's why I post my ideas here

...unfortunately, only about 3 people even read them. One would think that after this week, people would be more receptive to real ideas than to the multitude of whining and OMG stuff. :(

Even if we didn't want to do

Even if we didn't want to do this to save the United States, we need to do it for the worlds sake.

Ron Paul 2012

At this point, and with enough of us planing on writing in his name, he pretty much is running whether he agrees to it or not. Wouldn't you say?

I Agree with you a lot of people plan to write in his name.

However, there are states that do not count write-ins. That is why Ron's best chance of getting elected is to go with a party who is on the ballot in all 50 states. The Libertarian party is available to Ron if Gary still agrees to step aside.


He always said he would listen to his supporters...

Well lets tell him what we want, and that is a RON PAUL WHITEHOUSE!!!

Good Idea

I really hope he does a third party run!

Check out the first FREE restored name Scriptures at:
Praise YHWH!

I doubt seriously Dr. Paul does not comprehend that we

trust and support HIM but we have trepidation towards Rand, and their is near universal loathing for Benton.

Benton has never given any hint that the feeling isn't mutual, and has made no effort to convince us otherwise.

Rand on the other hand has managed to walk a tight enough rope that he might skate by.

Rand Paul

Rand is no hero: but then I am sure that's pretty much OK with him as long as his dad is. You can't be a Ron Paul by trying to be like him: it has to be spontaneous. Have to say though I was disappointed once again in how he wants the position without the work as seen in the Wolf Blitzer interview where he tossed a golden opportunity to kiss up some more.

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

Ron Paul just "Loved" the way people badmouthed his son & Benton

He saw the ugliness going on and he was very displeased about it.

Regardless of what you think, neither Benton nor Rand hindered anything in his campaign.

It was the GOP and the vote and delegate fraud/rigging.

Ron Paul drew massive crowds, the publicity was great. He gathered thousands of new supporters, he was booked on a lot of news shows.

Stop blaming his son & the campaign and move on.

BTW, I don't "loathe" anybody or have any "trepidation."
But I DO love Ron Paul.

A lot of people took out their frustration on Rand and Benton

In reality by doing this they insulted Ron Paul.

Ron Paul chose these men and trusted them to do the job - and they did a wonderful job against all odds. Calling them names is calling Ron Paul names, simple as that.

However people should be excused and forgiven. They only did it because of their own frustration with the corrupt system.

Hopefully we can now move on and see that we need every freedom loving person as part of this revolution. We should push away nobody and accept and respect that we all fight the best way we can. When we do this we will win.

Oh, please. Ron's a grown man

Oh, please. Ron's a grown man and Benton DESERVES most of the criticism aimed at him as does his son, Rand. Ron knows full well that he bears part of the responsibility for Benton's actions since he hired him. Rand is his own man with no DIRECT bearing on Ron's 2012 campaign, but I'm quite sure there's an INDIRECT political connection with Rand somewhere. NO ONE is above just criticism including Ron, Benton, and Rand. With that said, nearly ALL of us greatly appreciate Ron's effort and would like to see the process carried through to its completion in the general election. Sure, many of us are disappointed in Benton's reckless actions and rightfully so. We have MONTHS of such examples as proof in addition to questionable associations. However, the ultimate choice is Ron's to make. Is Benton or the country more important? I'm quite sure that Ron is capable of objectively deciding which is more important, the country, Benton or his personal feelings. Ron's been in politics a LONG time to be as thin-skinned as some of you imply with your words. We appreciate Ron very much, but sincere appreciation doesn't mean someone is above just criticism.

Let's move on, Ron, and win this thing for the sake of our country or at least give the GOP and Democratic parties one hell of a scare! On PRINCIPLE, I'm with you ALL the way through the general election .... and beyond.

I Agree with your comments here Lars, thanks for putting it in

writing for all to see. As it has been said before, even by Doug Wead, there were things that only the campaign knew about so they could not let us know everything or it would decrease our chances of winning.
