Read Between The Lines - Ron Paul is voting for Gary Johnson

People. Ron Paul is not going to run third party. He would have no time to waste with the election just two months away and he would have said something at least a little encouraging if he was considering such a thing.

Furthermore he is voting for Gary Johnson. But he will never say that.

If he were to announce Gary Johnson was his choice and Obama won in just ONE single state where the margin was less than Gary Johnson received - the RNC would eternally blame Ron Paul and the Liberty movement.

Furthermore - even though Romney is bad, horrifically bad, he is not as bad as Obama - and Ron Paul will not be respondible for throwing the election to Obama - whether blamed or not.

He will never endorse Romney outright because, again, Romney IS so bad (but still better than Obama).

I am voting for Gary Johnson - just like I am sure Ron Paul is.

Romney not as bad as Obama?

I don't know about all that. Look how he treated a fellow, well-respected republican and long-time congressman. What would he do to the rest of us?

i think the point is about whether it's worth it

to pour MASSIVE resources into him and grassroot energy, as opposed to saving it for other uses, be it not a centrally run campaign but one on an individual level, or to simply conserve until someone who truly arouses enthusiasm comes along.. since gj is not a big offender to some of paul's central beliefs (except i'm not sure about right to life issue), whatever paul feels without telling others, i won't be surprised. the question has never been whether gj is better than the other 2. casting a vote is easy and either way he's not gonna win. the question ALWAYS has been whether he's worth it as the face of the franchise to ride as a vehicle to spread the message by pouring everyone's hard earned time and money into him. what many people had been saying is no he is not the best choice available, nor is he particularly informed compared to many other grassroots leaders' average standard in the paul movement. you don't even have to use a high standard like tom woods.

again LISTEN carefully and sink your mind to what i'm saying--it's about degree of worthiness and enthusiasm that follows.. it's not a simple yes or no. you're asking for massive devotion from people if you want them to cover the country just as hard as they did for paul--many people just don't feel enthused, but they won't give a plain "No" to GJ either, because AGAIN, it's not a yes or no question but DEGREE of over-achievement. please get it through your head once and for all and stop measuring in terms of yes v no

Reading between the lines is how the Leno rumor started.

I don't care who Ron Paul votes for. I will make my own decision. It definitely will be for a third party, but not GJ.

I hope Ron Paul writes

I hope Ron Paul writes himself in - like I intend to.

stop it

First, Ron Paul is already going to be blamed for Romney losing regardless of what he does with his vote. Second, in 2008 Paul backed Chuck Baldwin because Chuck Baldwin was a palatable candidate that he was able to get behind. He was not wishy washy or coy about who he was going to vote for in 2008. You are trying to create an endorsement from thin air that just isn't there. An endorsement by definition is a firm public declaration of support. Unfortunately that did not happen for Gary last night. So I wouldn't try to create it, its very dishonest.

They tried to bury us, they didn't know we were seeds. -mexican proverb

Ron Paul did not have a Republican Senator son in 2008, who he

is looking out for - nor did he have nearly the showing or likelyhood to throw the election that he has had this year.

Its a brand new ballgame compared to 2008.

AND I never said Ron Paul was giving Gary Johnson an "endorsement".
