Call The Libertarian Party And Tell Them You Want Ron Paul!

If you have now contacted Gary Johnson and Ron Paul yet, their contact info is on this thread: http://www.dailypaul.com/252536/its-still-possible-call-ron-...

It occurred to me that for this really to happen - the LP is going to have to be on board as well. So let's call them also and let them know that we want Ron Paul. If you are a republican tell them so, and that the LP will get your vote this year if Ron is at the top of the ticket. Gary has said in the past he would step aside for Ron, however I believe the LP can do it with or without Gary signing on. It would be much better if he is still on board with the idea. Tell them you know it's unusual, but that this is a very special circumstance and a great year for a STRONG candidate. Especially because of how the GOP treated the Ron Paul people. Remind them that Gary mentioned he would step aside for Ron.

Some states give you major party status for getting as low as 5% of the vote. The LP knows this, if there is a way to make this happen they will want to do it. Both the LP site and Gary's site feature videos from Ron Paul as the first thing you see, so let's make it happen!

Call and email the LP. Pass the word along to your friends, family, email lists, and other Liberty boards that you post on. If you know any of the leadership below contact them personally. I know a few and that is what I plan to do. If you have the time, contact them all. Be polite and respectful, but let them know that you want Ron Paul.

I believe that this would be

I believe that this would be a dishonorable and probably illegal thing to do. If he (Paul) wanted the Libertarian Party nomination he should have asked for it when it was available. I don't know anything about this Gary Johnson fellow, but he and the Libertarian party already have an agreement/contract with one another and it would be dishonorable for either party to break their contract. Paul stayed in the party that treated him horribly…that was his decision to do so and Mr. Johnson should not be the one to have to pay for Dr. Paul's decision.

There is nothing dishonorable

or illegal if BOTH sides mutually agree to void a contract. It can and does happen all the time. It can only happen if both the Libertarian Party/Gary Johnson and Ron Paul agree to do this together. I think all would stand to gain a great deal. The Libertarian party because they would gain the instant recognition and growth and legitimacy they've been striving for for years, Gary Johnson would be seen as a hero and could set himself up for future runs and Ron Paul and his supporters will have a new outlet to put all of their energies and enthusiasm into and continue to grow the liberty movement in leaps and bounds. Not to mention how awesome the debates would be! It is both Romney and Obama's worst nighmare!

I say let's do everything we can to make this happen!! Contact the people listed and respectfully request they do this. It could be the absolute best thing for everybody!

hell id be happy

even if he was vp to johnson. he would give johnson alot of good advise at least.it would be up to johnson to take his advise. but he would be a fool not to.
