Stop pushing Ron Paul for VEEP. He won't do it. But he may run for POTUS. It's still possible. Don't be deterred.Submitted by RonPaulRocks1 on Mon, 09/03/2012 - 02:02
Despite comments from Doug Wead, we now have two sources who have personally spoken to Ron about running as the LP candidate. According to both sources Ron did not completely shoot down the idea.
However, people need to stop pushing Ron as VEEP. He is not going to do that, nor does he have to. The folks pushing this idea are misinformed about sore loser laws. They do not apply here, except in Michigan (where Johnson is already not on the ballot) and less than 4-5 other states. We are voting for electors, not for an actual candidate.
Ron Paul has indicated that he could be drafted if he thought he had enough grassroots and financial support. Gary has indicated, previously, that he would step aside for Ron.
We have stop pushing the dumb idea of Ron for VEEP and call and write Ron, Gary, and the LP and tell them we want RON.
Also, its important to let Ron know you will not be leaving the Republican Party, but would vote for him as the LP nominee. We also have to let Ron know we understand Rand has to do his thing for Romney, and no hard feelings from us. Ron is listening and pondering, let's let him know we are on board.
All the contact info for Ron, Gary, and all the leadership at the LP can be found on this thread.
