Will Ron Paul make an independent run in 2012?

The Daily Paul has the most wishful thinking opinion pieces up post-RNC:

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.

I hope he does..

After what happened at the RNC in Florida, I know barak obama and romney are the same, but just to get back at the RNC/GOP I'm voting for Obama!

But if Ron Paul were to go third party I would back him, unless he made his son vp then I would vote for Hitler instead.

Pretty much anybody but Rand and Romney.

No

he will not..

I am not psychic, but I have listened when he has spoken before.

So no independent run...

That has nothing to do with what I wan´t.

Tell Ron we need him NOW to go third party!!!

Tell Ron we need him NOW to go third party!!! The GOP think they can push us out, HA ha!!! Think again!!! PLAN B!!! TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE!!! WE HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE!!! THIS R3VOLUTION AIN'T OVER!!! LET'S DO THIS ASAP!!!
ALSO CONTACT YOUR LOCAL STATE COORDINATOR AND HAVE THEM TELL PAUL, THE GRASSROOTS SAY, GO THIRD PARTY!!!
WE NEED ALL STATES CONTACTING RON PAUL NOT JUST ALASKA!!!

I would be highly honored to

I would be highly honored to cast a vote for Dr. Paul on a third party ticket this November.

I reject both cancerous parties, and we could start a new movement to unit disgruntled democrats and republicans. With these two loser candidates - Obama and Romney - there is a lot of be exposed.

If it happens...

I would hope Ron Paul will take advantage of the airtime to call out Obamney and challenge them. If they don't allow him in the debates it will not only demonstrate their lack of confidence in themselves but would be a tremendous disservice to Americans, by denying them an alternative viewpoint on critical issues and unbecoming of a person fit for the role of US President.

If men are good, you don't need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don't dare have one.

IF this happens...

I just want to remind everyone that your max of $2500.00 money bomb donation limit has reset, and money will be needed by the campaign like crazy in a short amount of time, if you've never donated your max would be $5,000.00, (or 5,000.00 less the amount you donated to Ron Paul already.)

I doubt Ron Paul will do this, but keep the above in mind just incase he shocks us all!!!

DR PAUL, WE ARE ONLY

DR PAUL, WE ARE ONLY SUPPORTING OTHER CANDIDATES BECAUSE WE'RE LEAD TO BELIEVE YOU HAVE STOPPED CAMPAIGNING. WE WANT YOU TO PROVE US WRONG.

There is only one!

There is only one candidate worthy to be President. Until he says he is done, there is always hope.

i don't really care if he

i don't really care if he doesn't have ballot access at all, just getting above 15% in the polls and nationally debating would be an achievement in itself and would catapult the third party into the mainstream.

i am

a little confused, news went out that he will be on jay leno, then all of a sudden everyone started saying he has a "special announcement" is this true or just a rumor?

Don't know any thing for a fact.

But there is always hope!

agreed

;)

I will write Ron Paul in this

I will write Ron Paul in this election. I have been waiting since 2008 to vote for Ron Paul in this election and that is what I am going to do whether he runs 3rd party or not. Ron Paul or none at all.

You are a true patriotic American.

Like Dr. Paul, you don't run away when the going gets tough!

One in a million? So what you're saying is... there's a chance?!

At least we can continue to live in La La Land for a few more days.

BUMP!!!!!!!!!!

Hello!!!!Bump it every minute!!!!!!!I hope this is true!!!!!!Praying!

did you read the article?

they are saying how dumb all the "paultards" are running around saying Rp is gonna run third party. That article was not evidence, it was mocking us.

ok...

some of you are just as bad as all the republicans and democrats, whom you say don't listen, or aren't open to new ideas. I was just quoting the article from the OP. Some of you look just as "zombie" as the Romney camp by claiming that RP has a special announcement, or that you know for a fact from one of "your" insiders that RP is going to run 3rd party. Of course there is no evidence provided only speculation, and just like the ROMBOTS you shut down any thoughts or opinions that don't tow your idea of the "Ron Paul Party Line"

RP was our last hope now we have no choice but to watch the world burn or hope that enough people will awake for an intellectual revolution.

Quote from the article

"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."

Just got this from another thread

evan alask, 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.

Ron Paul 2012 - It's Almost Here!

Huh? Who questioned whether

Huh? Who questioned whether or not he was gonna be on the show? We KNEW that. It's on NBC's website. The question is where is the SOURCE for him making a special announcement?

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

But it is on the interweb. It must be true.

Have you asked Dr. Paul? Until he states unequivocally that he is done, then there is still hope for a better world in our lifetime. What is the harm in people having hope?

FRONT PAGE!!!!

who's runnin this frickin site??!?!?!?!?

I have to read about the God forsaken gop platform and some damned tax, but THIS ISNT FRONT PAGE????

when did this go from a Ron Paul site to another arm of the gop????

wake up administrators!!!! or this will be gone!!

The GOP

just spit on and LOST 30 plus percent of it's vote... Then there's the millions who NEVER would vote (R) anyway... If Ron Paul runs independent, we MUST stick together, and safeguard against any further fraud/BS.

"So we all know Ron is making

"So we all know Ron is making a special announcement on Jay Leno on September 4th" We do??? I don't know that and I have yet to find one single credible source to confirm this.

Second, Ron Paul is NOT going to run 3rd party. Mark my words...
