We Have A Billionaire Willing To Fund A Johnson/Paul 2012 Ticket Update from Evan Cutler

Update from Evan Cutler
Tuesday Afternoon Update:

Ron Paul on Jay Leno Tonight - We have some Delegates in the studio audience during the taping right now (3:30 PM PST).

The site www.RonPaul2012.net was offline a bit today, but is back up. Sign and get your friends to sign. 2,000 new signatures in a day is great, but not enough!

I was contacted by two County Organizers for Ron Paul in Florida this morning. They say they have a Billionaire who will pledge a vast portion of his fortune to help any Presidential Candidate who will sign a campaign pledge stating what they will do in office, and promising to report progress and take responsibility for success or failure in the first year.

Romney and Obama have turned down his offer, and while the Billionaire was introduced to Rand Paul at the Sun Dome this weekend, he has not yet heard back from Dr. Paul. I forwarded the contact information to Dr. Paul via email and left a message at his home this morning. I also put those people in direct touch with the General Counsel for the Gary Johnson Campaign. I'll share more information on this on Thursday's call.

Many people have contacted me in the past few days. There is much information to share on Thursday's call.

Our Team Liberty Alaska volunteers are working hard and we are almost ready to open our new website and Facebook Group. I'll post the links as soon as possible--tonight, or in the early morning.

We've had over 100 new requests to join our Alaskans for Ron Paul 2012 Facebook group. However, we only accept Alaskans in that group, so as to keep our communications there private. The new facebook group for everyone in this effort will be open to ALL who wish to join, though negative people will be promptly banned.

Thank you to all who have taken up this call to Draft Dr. Paul to stay in the race! And to the many people who are each helping in their own way. I'll post more updates as they are available.

Evan's new website for this.

Gary Johnson has to work this out with Dr. Paul and Judge Gray

Participant access code: 811476

As posted before, I spoke with Dr. Paul Saturday about continuing the fight by running on a third party ticket. I will continue to share what he said to me and let you know what needs to be done to make this happen. It can happen, but it's going to take some work. If you are willing to support this effort, please share this event and call in:

We will also have at least one live stream over the Internet for those who can't attend by phone, and will again record the call for people who can't make it.

It's up to Paul now... Please Dr. Paul, we need you!

I can't help but think that things could not have been laid out better for this if it had been planned!

By the campaign refusing to fight the election fraud, the physical assaults to delegates, and ultimately the theft of delegates, it has effectively forced us "we the people" to get involved and also allowed the situation to get so disgustingly obvious that the fraud and corruption is clear to anyone who looks at it. Voters are desperate for an alternative!

The numbers are there. THE NUMBERS ARE THERE! Has everyone forgotten all the polls, CPAC, etc? Remember how the media has to hide the true poll results, report them backwards, etc to hide Paul's success? Ron Paul is the people's choice.

DON'T WORRY ABOUT STATES WHERE HE MAY NOT BE ON THE BALLOT! There are only a few, and with a well organized effort the thousands upon thousands of supporters and volunteers in those states could be put to work helping get votes in other states. For example, they could make phone calls, do work on the internet, donate money, call newspapers, radio talk shows, etc. This could work!

True, there was a fake billionaire before, but this time someone has actually met a real person (Rand met him). Even without the billionaire we have the numbers, but a massive infusion of "inspiration" money would be nice... it could be used to flood the tv stations with some of those awesome ads.

How is this up to Paul? As

How is this up to Paul? As far as I can see it, this has not much to do with Paul at all. This is the decision of the Libertarian Party and Delegates thereof. Gary Johnson was asked recently, and said the idea of Paul joining the LP ticket would be "problematic"

Technically you are correct

I don't know that the Libertarian party has actually officially asked Ron Paul to do this recently, as a result of these new developments, but the party has had a standing invitation for Ron in the past. Based on the negotiations that Evan has been describing seems that the party is positive about this and that the "problematic" aspects can be dealt with.

Hey, after the shenanigans the GOP engaged in at the convention it would seem "what can be done" has no limit LOL

Make it a Paul/Johnson ticket

and I'm voting for him!!

Frankly if Gary Johnson WOULDN'T step aside and hand the presidency to RP and take the VP slot, that'd be all I'd need to NOT vote for Johnson.
RP's liberty related work in any two year period dwarfs Johnson's lifetime work.

I said the same thing and wish that was possible,

Turns out it's not, or at least not reasonably feasible at this point.

I believe this is the third time

since 2007 that I have seen this kond of a story. Hmmmm...funny that the billionaire would come along so late in the game? Why do think that is? Could it be that it is because it's BULLSHIT!!!!!!!

Either that

or TPTB desperately want Paul to go third party. LOL, its probably both. Thank the Lord, Ron Paul is too wise and too humble to fall for that trap.

Late in the game is better than not in the game

And the game isn't over yet by a long-shot. You still in the game? I am and I know this time isn't bs because Evan Cutler doesn't bs and has an impeccable reputation in Alaska as being at the forefront for Dr. Ron Paul every single step of the way since 2007.

November 6th 2012 I voted for Dr.Ron Paul
"We must remember, elections are short-term efforts. Revolutions are long-term projects." ~ Ron Paul

Actually, going third party

puts us OUT of the game. We are only in the game if we are in a position to threaten their power. Believe me, we are no threat as a third party. It is just NOT the system that they told us it was in grade school civics or social studies. That is all an illusion.

If the establishment agreed

If the establishment agreed with you, they wouldn't constantly demonize third parties but falsely claiming that a "vote for Johnson is a vote for Obama" etc.

They have that under control

No, they don't want people to vote third party, but they have things pretty well under control. It is EASY for them to bury our movement as a third party movement, that is the point. Blaming us for an Obama win would just be icing on the cake. As it is, they do control people well enough through the media to neutralize any threat. And there is always vote-flipping to fall back on. We can not kid ourselves about that. Third party will not be a viable option for us until after the majority wakes up. People are nowhere near ready to vote for someone who isn't even in the debates.

This reads like a Nigerian billionaire bank account email!!

This reads like a Nigerian billionaire bank account email!!

"Dearly beloved sir,

"A Nigerian quadrillionaire needs to deposit the sum of $100,000,000,000,000,000.00 in your account to avoid a government audit. For this act of trust, the Nigerian quadrillionaire is willing to pay you 10% or $10,000,000,000,000,000.00.

"All that is required on your part is your account and routing numbers.

"God bless you. God really, really, REALLY bless you!!

"P.S., this Nigerian quadrillionaire further gives you permissions to fund the Gary Johnson/Ron Paul presidential campaign to the tune of ONE BILLION DOLLARS, to be paid from his remaining $90,000,000,000,000,000.00.

"Feel free to withdraw the billion while the Nigerian quadrillionaire's money is in your account. Don't worry. He can afford it.

"Once again, God bless you!!"

"Cowards & idiots can come along for the ride but they gotta sit in the back seat!"

Where was he eight months ago?

We could have used some money then.

It ain't over yet people!

Negotiations have been going on for about a week now! You want Ron Paul? Support this effort!!!@

Blessings )o(

What is there to negotiate?

And how does a billionaire donate more than the maximum of $2600 - or whatever it is?

And - if this billionaire plans to start a PAC - how could they make some kind of contract with the candidate first?

Ahem... Addleson and Wife ring a bell?

Hello? They gave over 10 million to Romney I think it was combined to SuperPacs.

Think positive: Ron Paul in the Whitehouse!

November 6th 2012 I voted for Dr.Ron Paul
"We must remember, elections are short-term efforts. Revolutions are long-term projects." ~ Ron Paul

Remember Leppard that bought the full page ads or Ross Perot

that bought blocks of airtime during his campaign. SuperPacs ring a bell?

November 6th 2012 I voted for Dr.Ron Paul
"We must remember, elections are short-term efforts. Revolutions are long-term projects." ~ Ron Paul

Oh - And Perot was the candidate...

And they can spend as much on themselves as they wish.

A candidate can't collaborate with a SuperPAC

It is just a bad idea that doesn't even make sense...

So, the candidate has to sign some document with the billionaire first? That is exhibit A proving collusion.

It sounds pretty fishy to me.

Bring it on...

Bring it on, let's see it. Put up or shut up.


This is only serving to give

This is only serving to give us false hope. Ron ain't gonna do anything....except for a last-minute half-hearted endorsement a week before the election (when it no longer matters). This is a sad repeat of 2008.

Sad indeed.

First, I agree that Ron Paul will not accept a third party or independent ticket. But, if you need his "endorsement" to know what to do that is very sad. All along he told us he will not tell us what to do - not his style. We are not collectivists. Use your own judgement.

Personally, I see no alternative than to vote for Johnson.

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain

We agree on Johnson. I think

We agree on Johnson. I think it goes deeper than that, however. Ron is holding back for some reason.

for Rand, ughhhh

for Rand, ughhhh

Probably....but what explains

Probably....but what explains his similar behavior in 2008? My best guess is that alternatives were so terrible e.g. Barr but who knows?
