An Open Letter To Our Leader, Ron Paul

I was 50 years old before I voted for the first time, such was the apathy and complete disillusionment I suffered from.

Not even the atrocities of Clinton and Bush moved me to join in the fight for liberty.

But you did.

One man willing to stand up against the lies was all I needed. You have awakened entire generations to their true birthright as Americans, and as human beings.

So I worked my precinct, and was at the Nevada state convention where we took over the republican party in the state. While we were busy forcing the Romney people to go third party, you were busy packing 10,000 people at a time into arenas. It began to emerge in all of our minds that we could actually win, and get the chance to live in a free country.

And suddenly, you were gone. The campaign ended, and we have been left to fend for ourselves. 17 brave heroes from my state risked everything to vote for you, even though they knew they had been beaten.

Why did you leave us just when we began to win this fight? Every one of us knew that the tree of liberty requires the blood of tyrants and patriots, and we were ready to bleed with you. In fact, many of us already have. And it's okay. We love our country, and we want it back!

Some analysts say it was all about setting the stage for Rand in 2016. Dr. Paul, will there be an America to save after 4 more years of Obama committing genocide against the middle class? Will American sovereignty even exist, or will we be under the bootheel of the globalist-marxist thugs?

The nation that was hungry for change in 2008 and could not hear you has heard you, and we are ready. They are more than ready, they are STARVING. There will never be another moment in our history like this.

Americans everywhere know that between Romney and Obama, they have no choice. It has never been more obvious.

Please give them a choice. Give US a choice, the tens of thousands who bled for you and are ready to give more.

Please call Governor Johnson and accept his generous offer, and get your brave soul back in there one more time and make those tyrants bleed.

We need you sir. The nation you have given your enire life to, needs you, or it may be no more.

Please lead us to freedom, before our chance is gone.

We love you and thank you from the bottom of our hearts for waking us up, and for all you have given on our behalf.

Let's finish this thing. We are with you. ALL OF US.

Why don't we all just move to one state take it over completely


We have a huge army. Why don't we all just move to one state or perhaps a couple take it over completely peacefully of course and legal. :) Why not Texas? It has the ocean, lakes, farming, lots of land, etc. We can give the government a lot of headaches until we get what we want. Perhaps even leave the union and create our own country. If we can't change the country, let take over states one at a time. Change state policy, nullify unconstitutional laws, and do some good.

I agree. The only thing

I agree. The only thing binding the states to the federal government is the Constitution. The federal government's complete disregard for the restrictions of the Constitution express a direct violation of each state's sovereignty, and, as such, no state is legally bound to be a part of this republic. Of course, we all know that the Declaration of Independence specifically iterates the concept of the consent of the governed, so we have that right no matter what the federal government or Abraham Lincoln does or thinks.

P.S. Texas certainly sounds more practical, but after witnessing the utter passion and success of those in Maine, I can't help but keep that as a viable option as well!


Ron Paul never quit.

Ron Paul never quit.

In fact, I could argue that his supporters quit before he did. They started pushing Gary Johnson while people were still fighting in their states to get seated as delegates. By the time the delegate fights were over, they had no support from us here in the grassroots because those that didn't fight for a seat had written off the campaign.

I can't imagine why Dr. Paul would want to pick up the torch and run again just to get thrown under the bus another time by his supposed supporters.

Blessings )o(

I can imagine

that he will never quit. He has more support than he has ever had, and has not quit. I can't imagine Dr. Paul thinking for a minute that we threw him under the bus. I imagine he is very proud of us and has said so. Now, if you are speaking of Rand, Justin, Bills, and others, I understand how he might be weary of such stupidity.

I suspect the only deterrent, would be Rand's future, but he will be toast anyway, because he cannot deliver the liberty vote to Romney. We, and Rand, have nothing to lose.

It's a win, win, no harm no foul; the message get's out and voters have a choice. I am for the 3rd party run.

What is Gary Johnson's offer?

Awsome letter, well stated.

Aaron Russo, Nikola Tesla, Ron Paul, I'm jus' sayin'

I believe Gov. Johnson offered...

to give top billing to Dr. Paul on the Libertarian ticket and take VP instead. No idea if he would still do that.

Considerations for the 2012 U.S. Presidential Race from the Mind of a Political Independent-Use this tool to educate the unconverted and prove support for Dr. Paul among Independents.

Couldn't Ron get on stage in a debate

with Obama and Romney if he ran third party and got more than 15 percent in a national poll? I might be wrong, but thats what i've heard.

Excellent letter btw.

Its an emotional time...

I think a lot of people feel pretty down after putting so much effort into the campaign and getting crushed at the convention. I think it's easy to want to stay down and not get your hopes up for fear of having hopes slashed again.

But what I am really feeling... I hope more than anything that Ron Paul runs 3rd party and gives us a chance to expose how corrupt this whole thing really is.

It Is Time For The Ron Paul Revolution To Move Beyond Politics

Aye for that RP for 3rd Party or VP.

Also there is a good article about RP here.


"When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. When the government fears the people, there is liberty."

I agree

winning is a long shot, but the more I think about it, if he ran for 3rd party and exposed the corruption in its entirety, we could finally have truth/corruption in American politics documented. You have shook the foundations of multiple generations Dr. Paul. Thank You.

Bob, Please post this on Dr.


Please post this on Dr. Paul's and Gary Johnson's FB page if you haven't already. I also hope you have sent it to Dr. Paul's office.

Great letter, thanks!

Why did he leave?

The campaign accepted no donations from corporations. The campaign money came from wee the people. When the campaign counted Pluality, they stopped campaigning to not waste our money.

What was th point in feeding a MSM beast that never told the truth, censored Ron paul, his results, lied, cheated, hid the truth?

Ron paul could have spent money going into massive debt and still, they would have lied, cheated and worked to censor him and STOP the rEvolution. So Ron paul decided to not spend the money, since he achieved plurality.

The campaign did continue to work with volunteers in a state level, where we where having conference calls, sending emails, and messages through some meet ups.. and this lasted all the way through Tampa.

I hope you understand, Ron Paul didn't abandon you, he had achieved pluraity and since MSM refused to report that.. it seemed senseless yo waste the money trying to be news, when they MSM refused to air any of it,

Off Topic...

Finally pissed off enough to spread the word of Dr. Paul
Here's song I wrote for a close friend and wounded Iraq war veteran:

Yeah, but take the...

Bachmann advice! Flip it upside down and it will get rid of the devil and say 999! LOL!

Off topic? Want doesn't sit well?

Yes indeed, a Ron Paul as VP

Yes indeed, a Ron Paul as VP would be the final straw, and bring me to vote for Gary Johnson.. otherwise, I must go a different route.

We need Gary to let Paul be the President so

he can debate Obama and Romney. Otherwise as far as a team goes it would not matter who would be the Presidential candidate.


Ron Paul Would Run as President as Gary steps aside to allow it

as he said he would. Now, we just need to confirm that he is still willing to do this. Hopefully, Ron and Gary can work something out for Gary. Not everyone would do this as their egos would be in the way but Gary is to be admired for offering Ron the Libertarian ticket for president.


All the better

All the better


Gary Johnson and Ron Paul on the same ticket.

If nothing else I could vote with peace in my heart!

Finally pissed off enough to spread the word of Dr. Paul
Here's song I wrote for a close friend and wounded Iraq war veteran:

Great speech brother

Brother, that was one great heartfelt speech you just gave for the cause of Liberty. I hope the good doctor accepts your plea.
A Paul/Johnson bumper sticker would look rather nice adjacent to my 2008, and 2012 stickers on the back of my vehicle, along with my yard signs too.
I met a gentleman a few days ago, we both were exiting a restaurant at the same time, He saw my Ron Paul stickers and said how disappointed he was at the RNC/GOP for the way they treated Dr. Paul during the convention...His final departing words were "I'm writing in Dr. Paul come November"...I am sure we picked up some others after what they did in Tampa.

Beautifully writtenn

So according to some resources, he still had millions on him when he stopped the rallies. I have no idea what the rallies cost, but they gave so much motivation to everyone that it's making me thing if the rallies had continued, we would've had enough motivation for the delegate strategy to work, and win all the states we did indeed won without the RNC cheating.

I doubt Dr. Ron Paul would run third party though. It would be awesome, but it would reduce all future running chances to zero and possibly the RNC would abuse this to label Ron Paul supporters as libertarians and completely bar us from taking over the party.

"Truth is Treason in an Empire that lies" - Ron Paul

Educate the masses, and win in the end.

Is it too late for a run as an Independent?

Not associated with any political party because they all have their issues which become baggage for the candidates fronting the party.

Just apply for independent ballot status on every state.

Ron Paul could WIN as an independent due to all of the discontented members within EVERY OTHER political party.

DO it Dr. Paul!!!

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."

Front Page Please Mods, This Is the Open Letter Asking Paul to

Run 3rd party. We need everyone to see it so they can vote it up and comment if they want to. Ron Paul 2012 is still possible!!! Let's shock everyone and do this, let Ron know we are 100% behind him to win this election.


Awesome letter!

Let's get this PARTY started Dr.Paul!

What is the "generous offer?"


"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)

That Gary Johnson will step aside so Ron can run as President on

the Libertarian party which is on the ballot in all 50 states. The Libertarian party confirmed with a Ron Paul supporter several months ago they wanted Dr Paul too.


In that case...

Although it will be seen as an exciting possibility I do not believe it will happen. Even if it did my argument that the votes will be stolen and given to one of the ruling duopoly still stands. This is what they did during the primaries with the votes of Ron Paul, Santorum, and Gingrich.

There is no possible way for the oligarchy to give up the Presidency. I believed that Ron Paul would miraculously win the nomination but he didn't. I have come to believe now that God has another plan.

The paradigm that has emerged is not the one of the future as I believed but one from the present system of things that we are transitioning out of. I though we were going to see a foreshadowing of the coming Kingdom of God but we have seen a shadowing of the crucifixion, resurrection and ascension of the Lord Jesus Christ with the responsibility to carry forward the message of liberty being passed to the followers of Ron Paul just as it was passed to the followers of Jesus Christ.

This means that the warnings Ron Paul has given will all come to pass and it is now the role of his followers to become Ron Paul and to prepare for the coming collapse of the economy and the eventual destruction of Jerusalem in the coming Middle East War. I believe that the oligarchy want to grow this into a world war but I believe that God will not permit this to happen. The end will come when Jerusalem and the Jewish State is destroyed.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)
