Ron Paul on Leno: Leaves door open for third party run

Ron Paul says "no not much" chance and brushes off the question with a joke that he must rest to get ready for 2016.


Once again he could have ruled it out 100% but since he did not there is still a chance.

If he had wanted us to stop talking about it he could have said that he had considered it and that he has now decided not to run third party. Then we would all have known not to continue barking up this tree.

Since he did not it is now up to us to double our efforts to convince him that the support and the money is there.

Some people here seem to be working very hard to discourage Ron Paul from running. I for one will only stop encouraging him when he tells me he has made his decision.

Please don't lie. Thanks.

Implying that RP is running 3rd party is lying.

Ron Paul stands for truth.

Please don't lie.

I agree. And since this is

I agree. And since this is otherwise maybe the LAST election in the country as we know it, it's all the more important to keep hope alive. Ron Paul 2012!

I personally wish he would...

...but somehow I am not so sure about it. One thing I do know is that he was used to wake us all up & I am sure no matter what he chooses to do with the remainder of his years, he will expect all his supporters to become active in every and any way possible.

I can almost bet that he will be speaking around the country for many future candidates! He will not disappear. He is not done waking the walking dead yet.

He didn't leave the door open

he was being very tongue in cheek. Actually literally! :)

Ron Paul is literally what was stamped on Samuel L. Jackson's wallet in pulp fiction. The pantywaists in washington won't have a Dr. Paul. He would run them over with a tank because he's a Bad A-- Mother-Grabber.

If people think one puppet (that's all they are-figureheads) could change the world for the better they are disillusioned. The elite run the world. Not the other way around. We need to effect change on a local level.

Dr. Paul is one cool dude. I have the utmost respect for the man. He opened my eyes. He's an inspiration and he actually has spawned a whole new breed of Dr. Pauls. I think it's wonderful.

More than anything I would like to see Dr. Paul inaugurated and cry my eyes out and yell President Paul! But I think he's done much better than most folks realize by teaching people to get involved and change the broken system.

We can all agree to disagree on some points. But we can all agree Dr. Paul kicks butt.

Well he did

Because he did not rule it out as some people claim. If it is not ruled out then the door must be open a little bit.

I totally agree with you and I don't think there is much of a chance of a LB win no matter if Ron Paul is on the ticket.

The reason I am for it is that it would invite a lot of new people into the tent. The GOP tent is just to small and many people would never vote for a Republican or take him seriously.

A Ron Paul third party run now would wake up more millions and send a clear message both to the rest of the sleeping public and to the establishment that the revolution is serious. What else can be done the next two months that would have anything near the same impact?

Since he did not rule it out there is a chance. Do you think he would run if 2 million people donated a total of 100 million to his campaign over the weekend? Of course that won't happen but it proves the point that it is only a question of how much support there is and how much we can convince Ron Paul that he should run.

How pathetic.

ARE YOU doing anything to get him on the ballot in your state and EVERY other state?


Why not?

How do you expect to win?

Why run if no one gets to vote for you?

You folks will never learn will you?

It is IRRELEVANT HOW YOU FEEL about Ron running 3rd party.

What matters is CAN he?

No, he cannot.


Because he can't get on the ballot.

It is too late.

Get it?

Hellooooo? McFly?

This is what Ron Paul always does:

Decision: no/yes.
_______ has Pros, here they are:

_______ has Cons, here they are:

Ron Paul said 'no' publicly to a 3rd Party run 8 years ago and hasn't changed his position. Since that time he simply has reiterated and articulated his points.

Fight the Ron Paul blackout on the Daily Paul (now 'P AU L'), put his removed poster back as your avatar:


Not sure what Ron Paul is planning. He says no to the prospect of a third-party campaign, but then goes on to explain the advantages of running third-party when both Republicans and Democrats are corrupt statists. Well, if he genuinely believes what he said - that the two parties "aren't all that different," and questions "what is left?" for those who have come to that conclusion - then he should provide the answer by running and giving the American people a choice.

It's only confusing to someone who doesn't comprehend that it is

too late to get on the ballot.

Then Be Clear

Then he should just say that, instead of being vague.

Double Ditto!!!
