We Will Not Forget: Write in Ron Paul for Our Beaten and Arrested Delegates in the States Where it Will Count

States where the write votes will be counted: AL, IA, WI, PA, CA, VT, NH, DE, OR

One thing that irks me about all the Johnsonites now swarming this site who say: "Get over it! You lost! Now vote for Gary Johnson!" is it's not that simple. A cynical calculation was made that "Those Ron Paul votes are now all OURS! Let's go in and swamp them and browbeat them UNTIL THEY SUBMIT, JUST LIKE THEY HAD TO FOR THE GOP!"

It's not that simple now because of guys like Alex Helwig, who found out that playing by the rules and winning means nothing to some people. He was arrested during the fracas at the Louisiana GOP and came out of jail with broken fingers.

It's not that simple because of Henry Herford, Jr., an elderly handicapped gentleman and newly-elected Ron Paul chairman who was pushed to the floor by off-duty Shreveport police goons hired by the leadership. He reportedly suffered a dislocated hip.

In a Missouri parking lot where locked out Ron Paulers finally held their own convention, a SWAT team was called to break up the peaceful assembly.

Over and over we saw no bottom to the contempt for a democratic republic exhibited by the GOP leadership, the form of government bequeathed to us by the Founders.

When we go into the eight states where write-in votes are counted without a candidate's signed declaration of intent (meaning we don't have to bother Dr. Paul, we can do it all ourselves,) we aren't just choosing to vote for the man who best and most CONSISTENTLY articulates our message.

WE HAVE OUR HEROES TO REMEMBER. Those who bravely waded into the uncharted waters of the GOP snakepit to contend with whatever they found.

Even after the convention the State was not done with Ron Paul, as 8 TSA agents descended on his party as they were boarding a private plane out of Tampa.

Lew Rockwell reports:

"After a long examination of the pilots and their credentials, the agents said they had to check the plane for explosives. One of the pilots noted that the plane, full of gas, was already a bomb. Then Carol Paul, who has a heart pacemaker, refused to be screened, and an aide started taking video of the whole rotten proceeding. At that point, the TSA backed down and let them through."

LOL nevermind Dr. Paul. It's Mrs. Paul who restored order with those boys.

This rich legacy of skulduggery and brutality provides enormous material for our write-in campaign for the states where it will count: AL, IA, WI, PA, CA, VT, NH, DE.

It makes me cry every time I watch the videos of what some of us went through. Just for exercising our right to participate in the process. I also feel like I AM THE ONE BEING ATTACKED.

You guys go off spend your time on this whole Johnson debate if you want. I will spend every last bit of time and energy I have until election day working on making the Ron Paul write-in vote get heard around the world, in the states it will count.

I for one, will never forget.

I checked...

... and unfortunately Ron Paul isn't on the write-in list for TX. I thought seriously about writing him in anyway because that would feel the best. However, I will likely vote GJ for the following reasons:

1. I agree with him on enough issues that I can support him in good conscience.

2. That ticket will be a good receptacle for those who refuse to accept the anyone-but-Obama/Romney dichotomy. Hopefully, the party that loses will do so by a smaller margin than what GJ picks up. If that's the case, I think everyone will know Ron Paul was the biggest reason for it.

You can still WORK for RON PAUL

write-in campaigns, though.. We can help pay for brochures, phone bank, lots of things...

Release the Sandy Hook video.

i don't know why this is

i don't know why this is getting voted down; in my view, anything that says "we won't accept the status quo anymore" is a good thing.

I will not forget !

and that is why i will cast a vote against Romney in November...

"If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin."
Samuel Adams

A vote AGAINST Romney isn't good enough.

To all of those who say anybody but Romney - there are a LOT of people in history that are even worse than Romney.

Pol Pot, Idi Amin, Joseph Stalin, Adolph Hitler, Ghengis Khan and Barrack Obama come to mind.

Cast your vote against Romney and FOR Gary Johnson.

That is

exactly what i plan on doing....

"If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin."
Samuel Adams

Bump!

Thank You!!!!!

'Blank the Ballot' is another option

...in those states which do not count write-ins.

This does not mean no voting. Go to the polls, be counted, and vote for the races, local or state, that present you with a choice.

But leave the presidential choices (and in Mass. the US Senate race) blank. Blanks are counted and they make it clear your choice was 'None of the Above'.

Blanks are counted? By whom? When was the last time you

heard it announced on the air in a meaningful way "X number of people didn't vote for President"?

Instead you hear how many voted for the candidates and MAYBE how many voted. You would have to do the math yourself IF they even give it to you in a meaningful way.

And even if you did hear how many blanks there were - wouldn't you think "Gee how many senile, indecisive or forgetful people are there?"?

You wouldn't say "I bet those people wanted to vote for Ron Paul and counldn't."

Right on Sue! Write in Ron and Right America!

As many commenters are stating now, we should LEAVE the RINOs today on the 11th Anniversary of IX XI.

There is still PLENTY of time to have Write In Ron in ALL FIFTY STATES (I think I've already found MORE than 8 States with NO RESTRICTIONS on Write Ins - see http://writein2008.blogspot.com/ for links to each State's requirements - where you can find latest info.)

and I think I've come up with a way to have the unity you call for, Sue - Write In Gary as VEEP. Being on ballots in all 50 States is NOT an advantage for Johnson, because it puts his supporters at the mercy of the Crimocracy's crooked voting and reporting monopoly. He has a MUCH better chance at being elected as Write In with Dr. Paul.

Most states only need us to beg and cajole Dr. Paul to sign

the declaration. He might do it, he might not. Since teh GOP played so dirty I think we have extenuating circumstances.

I'd be willing to go on a video under my real identity and say "Please Dr. Paul we are begging you" in order to provide a record that it was our idea, not his.

States that got their delegates chewed over can make the strongest case (Nevada, Maine. Louisiana doesn't allow write-ins. So people from there can do work for a different state and make their voices heard that way.)

Release the Sandy Hook video.

An admission that there is only eight states left for write-ins

What are you proposing for the other 42 states?

Vote Gary Johnson.

It's sad to watch you people

It's sad to watch you people give the election to Romney and Obama when Gary Johnson is on the ballot in all 50 States. So many people are looking for another choice, and you guys are trying to silence the only real chance that they have to avoid more years of anti-libertarian presidents.

The best we can do this election cycle is send a message

and to hurt the GOP. Whether we do this by a write in with Ron Paul or by voting GJ, doesn't make much difference IF your vote is counted for them to see it. We should all vote for the candidate that best represents us, and that is undoubtedly RP, so if your vote will be counted do it, if it won't vote GJ.

In the long run the political change we need to make that is actually doable is to create a viable third party. It is the two part system that is the source of much of our political problems, changing leadership without changing the system accomplishes virtually nothing. However, more important than POLITICAL change is SOCIAL change. We need to get people to accept the principles of liberty and this is cultural and sociological change that creates political change, not the other way around.

Thank you for reminding us!

The local church(not a building -a people) is the missing link. The time to build is now.

Personally if it furthers the liberty movement I will call,

email, and canvass for these states.

Please read the below post before making all these decisions in haste. Sure the easy way would be to walk-in on election day and choose one of the cronies of the establishment, BUT

Can you please give us hard-core Ron Paul supporters a break because we are just getting our people back from Tampa, strategizing for what is next, and knowing we are not attending a funeral for Ron Paul, he still has a pulse and his body is still very warm before continually posting this stuff on here? I believe in freedom, but it does come with responsibility and consequences. I would think that most of you would think before you jump on the GJ bandwagon and tell all of us what "we need to be doing."

We are hearing this repeatedly, but none of us go off willy-nilly to support a candidate. Did you not see us in Tampa? This is not a fly by night deal, this is our life and our lifestyle.

People are needing time to think, research, pray, take a break and a breath. This is not an easy decision and all these ideas have been literally thrown at us:

1) Vote for Obama it will sink Romney and he can pay for what he did to us and this way we only have 4 more years
2) Vote for GJ it will show we are not fringe
3) Vote for Romney because we need to take Obama down at all cost because he is the worst president in history
4) WRITE-IN Ron Paul in all the states he takes write-in, it will show we are not fringe and we can sleep well at night
5) Talk to the electorate because they are what really matter

We have a lot to think about. It does not help getting GJ shoved down our throats. I trust that we will do the research and our due dillegence and will choose together the right avenue to take. What do you do if you are on fire, you stop, drop, and roll. If we just run off in one direction the fire may spread rapidly and we will go up in flames, burn ourselves to death. Noone wants this. We want to make the best moves possible for the long haul, the joining of others, and to not divide all the work we have put in for so many years. We want to continue to grow and wake up more of our country to the idea of freedom and what it really means. We do not want to self-implode. We will take the time we need, but we are not hastily going to support GJ without all the research. AND or that matter we are not going to jump ship in support of Romney or Obama without thinking this all thoroughly through.

I will work tirelessly on the write-in campaign if it furthers the liberty movement. the jury is still out for me. Sure it would be easier to walk in and put my name on the ballot for one of the above, BUT I personally have a lot to think about and will not make my decision in haste.

Please pray for Jim Uprichard the National Nevada State Delegate.

If I was in a state that

counts write-in votes. I would totally do it. Sad I cannot. I want my vote to show up and be counted.

It's time! Rand Paul 2016!

"Truth, Justice, and the American Way!"

Why?

"I want my vote to show up and be counted." Why?

Free includes debt-free!

What do you plan on gaining by

writing in?

And writing in doesn't constitute as forgetting about Ron Paul. That's rather offensive to say honestly especially here.

Guess you are not reading the comments

As I said (I will repeat myself for you), neither can win. Therefore the question becomes what sends the strongest, clearest, and most un-muddled message? A slight bump for a fringe candidate who nobody knows, or an 8-state phenomenon for the man who has been filling college stadiums by the tens of thousands?

Release the Sandy Hook video.

You're being defensive now.

I was simply asking a question. That, and finding your statement in the OP very untrue and unessessary. I know plenty of people who are diehard RP/liberty supporters that are gearing towards GJ. You're bashing the wrong people and seem quite justified by creating a division amoung us. Commentos of others or not its not cool. Not cool at all my friend.

IMHO...I don't think either is wrong but be realistic about a write-in being counted if your basis is to proove to the world the liberty movement isn't fringe. It is anything BUT --There was plenty of evidence the GOP establishment engaged in election fraud that will not allow such a statement to take place. California will be one of those states. The vote counters will flip or trash the vote.

If the only reason you have to write-in is a means to live with yourself at the end of the day than go for it. Just don't bash those who are going a different route as any less of an RP/liberty supporter than you. We are all on the same side.

Ron Paul does.

Especially if Gary Johnson is the establishment candidate for the LP. I will work tirelessly to talk to the other states and let them know how to write-in Ron Paul.

Are you now denying that you have waved the bloody shirt?

?

Free includes debt-free!

Since Ron Paul cannot win this choice is illogical

Since Ron Paul cannot win this choice is illogical it is purely emotional.

Free includes debt-free!

Just like Gary Johnson cannot win. This being equal the

question becomes what sends the strongest, clearest, and most un-muddled message? A slight bump for a fringe candidate who nobody knows, or an 8-state phenomenon for the man who has been filling college stadiums by the tens of thousands?

Who has stood on the house floor NEARLY ALONE, and defended OUR right to a jury trial and OUR Bill of Rights. Who alone has taken on the evil Fed and now has it on the run.

Who told the TRUTH to a million-person televised audience, and was mocked by Rudy Giuliani, when he said the idea of being attacked for your freedoms is RIDICULOUS. We are attacked because we are OVER THERE.

Everyone knows the things that Ron Paul has said and a write-in tidal wave will AFFIRM that we say YES! RON PAUL! RON PAUL! RON PAUL!

THIS is where we must focus our efforts, not in some la-la land of "Johnson can win." You guys are nuts.

Release the Sandy Hook video.

There is no message. It is a fantasy.

No where, ever, on any major media station, ever, will the number of votes cast for Ron Paul be presented. Most likely not even the number of "other" will be seen on television. Primarily, because while write-in votes are "counted" by the computers, the actually per candidate tally is not done until days later and after someone pays them the money to do it.

No one is going to pay them the money. No write-ins will be counted, and if they are, they will not be announced. The only way a state would go through the expense and time is if by some miracle the "Other" tally is higher than Robomney's count.

I'm glad it will make you feel good -- but that is all it will do. Everyone here saying "send the GOP a message" are the deluded ones. There is no message. There will not be a count. There will be no opportunity to show the nation how dedicated and principled we are. All they will say is "Conservatives didn't show up to vote for Romney". Some will blame it on Christians. Whatever...sorry to say yours is a nice fantasy, but completely without reason or rational evidence.

"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

Oh sure

Yeah, because Gary Johnson can totally win.

"Truth is Treason in an Empire that lies" - Ron Paul

Educate the masses, and win in the end.

Like I would ever vote of GJ

Or BO or MR.

I don't have a voting fetish. I vote when it is logical. I do not believe my vote will send any kind of message.

Never has.
