Exactly what I have thought for the last 3 days

that's why I posted this question....

The FIESTA is over. Time to get back to WORK!

That is super rude and

That is super rude and uncalled for.

RP will not be announcing anything

except maybe a new book ....
this will just be a "now that you're out of the race - what are you going to do?" type of chit chat ....

will he ask RP to go off on the RNC and talk about ALL the corruption?

will he ask who are you going to endorse or support?

will Ron encourage the public to vote third party? Especially Gary Johnson?

will be good to see and hear Dr Paul - as always.

Gary Johnson 2012

Vote Third Party.

This ups our chances:

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul


then what is he going to announce on leno?? must be something big...maybe not 3rd party but gotta be something big!

Our founding fathers are rolling in their graves...the land of liberty needs a regime change!

Less than zero chance

There is less than zero chance of Ron Paul running third party. I am one of his greatest supporters. Even if he did run his chances of winning would be zero. What we need to understand is, this is not about any one person, it is a movement. My advice would be to now get behind Gary Johnson. Can he win? Probably not because the Democratic and Republican Party have the deck stacked against him. They hold all of the cards. But if he can poll 15% he will added into the debates and will make Romney and Obama look like crazy served on a silver platter. He will pull votes from Romney and Obama and then which every one looses we can say, "see there we told you that you could not win without us". We have to show both parties that if they expect to win they need us. We just do as they do and spin it our way.

Chances of winning are

Chances of winning are irrelevant. Chances of polling higer than 15% are all that matter. In that category gj doesnt even come close to rp. Lots of respect to gj though. He gives props to rp at every opportunity.

ecorob's picture

gj is cfr...

you want to get behind that?

you will gain NOTHING!

Doug Turner was Gary's general consultant, state director, and Campaign Manager for both his 1994 and 1998 election. Doug Turner is a member of the CFR and is listed as such on their website. He is currently listed on the "Leadership and Staff" page. This is Gary Johnson's closest adviser. Its reasonable to assume he would be in the same capacity during a Johnson for President campaign. That is just a little too close for my comfort. At the very least Gary Johnson is under the influence of the CFR.

Genuine Conservatives do not dance with the CFR and so until further notice I continue to have serious questions about Governor Gary Johnson as he prepares his likely bid for President of the United States.

cfr = nwo = gary johnson = nuff said!

Doug Wead "danced with the NWO" with George HW Bush

How certain are you that every member of the CFR thinks in lock step?

Peter Thiel attended the latest Builderberg meeting yet is a significant financial backer of our movement.

Maybe we have gone overboard on the secret society stuff.

Presidential politics is too rigged

The next part of our journey as liberty activists has to be the Free State Project:




I talked to Obama today who said he talked to someone

who said the moon was made of green cheese. FRONT PAGE!

Forgive me for disagreeing with you JML but

I think Newt would know more about that!

Well its true that dr paul

Well its true that dr paul has not yet responded himself. I guess its just as valid as some dude claiming to hear from doug benson that... Uh oh... Yeah...

You know i had to edit this because i think this was the point you were making. My appologies

Wishful thinking triumphs again.

Good video Israel. I have tried to make the same point in several posts about this but have also been down-voted. It will take some time before people calm down and get down to business again.

"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)

Propaganda and Lies

I'm so utterly sick of this movement starting to prefer lies and propaganda over the truth. I VOTED THIS UP because I prefer truth and honesty over propaganda. There's absolutely no evidence that Ron Paul will run 3rd party.

Gary Johnson

As a Ron Paul Supporter, I can say that I do not believe anyone has fought for the liberty of the nation and its people more than Ron Paul has in his career. I am as upset as everyone else here that Ron Paul was shut out by the media and the RNC. Although, I would definitely vote for him if he were to run 3P, it does appear that he is done. Unfortunately, some of you on here seem to have a messianic view of Dr. Paul. Again, he is a great man, but he is not a messiah or a savior. It is unfair to him to expect that he should stay in the race for YOU. Maybe he is just tired of all of the BS and after last week he has decided he is done. He would probably still get a bunch of crap from the RNC if he was to run 3P. Because some of you on here view him as the ONLY one, you will not consider anyone else for president. If Dr. Paul does not run, I will vote for Gary Johnson. He may not be RP, but I believe he is on the right track. I certainly will not vote for Barrack Hussein Romney.

I have posted a video below of Ron Paul and some of his supporters. Some of you can get a clue from this.



Just like that. My runnin' days was over.

"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)

What would you have him do?

Walk on water. Give it up and do not waste your vote by writing him in because they will only throw out your vote. Do some good and vote GH. They will probably throw those out also but he has a better chance now of upsetting their apple cart. A candidate has to have 270 electoral votes to win. Robme and Obummer are running neck and neck. Just think if GH won California, 54 electoral votes, he could throw the nomination into the house of Represenatives. Of course they would do the wrong thing and pick the wrong guy but that is already a known. They can not do anything right. But best of all GH would get to debate them and make both look like a fool. And who knows he could just win. It is far from being impossible. After all he is on all fifty state ballots. But I guess if given time the Repubs and Demos will find a way to get him off of some states. They are already trying that in Ohio.

Forrest Gump video

To clarify what I meant by posting the link of Forrest Gump, I was pointing out that SOME of the Ron Paul followers act as if they will not know what to do next if RP ceases to run for president. Once Forrest stopped running, his blind followers could not figure out what to do next. Ron Paul has led the way. It is up to us to continue with his message of the pursuit of liberty.

Yes I did get it. That is why I said Perfect.

I am glad you did.

Let's hope others catch on.

Clearly it's not over for Ron Paul

He is going on Jay Leno and his letter says thank you for your continued.
Someone who is not campaigning or someone who has lost and is going to retire would not be going on Jay Leno right before the presidential campaigns kick into full gear unless he they have a story they need to say.
Everybody I talk to dems and Indys all say Ron Paul should continue to run just so people can hear out story.
Ron Paul was ROBBED. People need to hear his story even if he dost get ballott access.
Our now campaign sloagen should be RIGGED. With a Romney R .
It's time we show the world how biased the media is .
How hard it is to get on the ballotts how hard it Is to have a voice.
Ron Paul needs to go on Jay Leno and tell the world that he is MAD AS HELL AND HE AIN'T GONNA TAKE IT ANY MORE.

We sound like the liberals when we whine.

Yeah, The GOP is full of cheats and backroom dealers and they break their own rules, but the truth of the matter is that RP only got 10% of the vote. The other 90% of the GOP doesn't agree with us. We are fooling ourselves if we think that we had the numbers to win. Let's face reality and quit whining.

Free and Brave
or Cradle to Grave
You can't have both

Daug wead

Just stated all we has to do is win Iowa and we would have won south corolina. We did have the numbers to win we were robbed.
They found the missing votes in Iowa and Ron Paul won.

The reason Iowa matters

Is if you can get 27 to 30 percent of the vote that gives you an average of how high you will poll in the general election.
Dems , Indys , and repubs
In a 3 way race Ron Paul will win 27 percent right now with out the media.

But his RUNNIN' days IS over.

He won't be running for any elected office again. That is the message.

"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)

I certainly won't vote for President in 2012.

All three candidate are pro-bigger government. Government is evil more government is more evil.

Does is make any difference who we elect to ride the dragon. Someone is going to be crushed. It's what dragons do.

Free includes debt-free!

You're high on crack if you

You're high on crack if you think GJ wants government bigger than it is now.
