Richard Gilbert, Lawyers For Ron Paul, Ron Paul On The Libertarian Ticket!

Iowa sent their ballots to the printer over a week ago and so have a lot of other states . . . how exactly are you going to get Ron Paul's name on the ballot? Are you going to sue the States that are already printing ballots and after you win in every state you are going to pay the millions of dollars to print new ballots? Can we please cut with the bulls**t on Ron Paul taking someone's place on the Libertarian ticket. No one in any position to have any real knowledge is saying this including Dr. Paul.

There may be a group calling themselves "Lawyers For Ron Paul" but there is only one lawyer and all his cases get thrown on on merit. Richard Gilbert, the lawyer, does not work for or with Ron Paul. He is an individual that spreads rumors and plays with people's emotions and strings them along and has a poor record of success in the court room. Richard Gilbert is a fraud and if you base your decisions or waste one second of time on anything he says then you are being played.

Ron Paul is no longer in the race, is not running, and will not be back in the race. Face the facts, have a good cry, pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and get back into the fight for liberty. If you help to spread these ridiculous rumors that Ron will be taking a spot from one of the duly elected Libertarian candidates on the ticket you are actually doing harm to the fight for liberty. KNOCK IT OFF PLEASE!!!

Will the Write-in Lawsuit win?

Have you been following the write-in lawsuit filed by attorney Richard Gilbert?

Richard Gilbert talks a lot about states not allowing write-ins being unconstitutional and keeps repeating that a law that is unconstitutional is null and void. I want to know what part of the constitution he is looking at that deals with the election of the president that makes it unconstitutional for the states to decide how to conduct their own elections? When I read the Constitution I find this:

From U.S. Constitution - Article 2 Section 1

The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America. He shall hold his Office during the Term of four Years, and, together with the Vice-President chosen for the same Term, be elected, as follows:

Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress: but no Senator or Representative, or Person holding an Office of Trust or Profit under the United States, shall be appointed an Elector.

"Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors"

According to the Constitution, the states don't have to allow the public to vote at all for president and their Legislature gets to decide how to conduct a vote if that is how they decide to appoint their Electors. Mr. Gilbert confuses what he thinks is fair play with what the Constitution actually says.

Deceptive titles aren't necessary

It's one thing to be angry, bitter and upset, but it is necessary to be deceitful just to get attention.
Regardless of your opinion of Mr. Reed, it's not like the guy is sitting on his ass doing nothing. Successfully or unsuccessfully, he's trying to be part of the solution and I haven't heard him ask for much in return. A little humility goes a long way sometimes... so does showing some respect.
If you have a problem with Mr. Reed share it him - there's no need to try to destroy the guy publicly especially when he's not aware to defend himself.


What is deceptive about the title? The post talks about everything that the title mentions.

Libertarian Party said no already

I don't have the link handy; however, the Libertarian Party has already said no to Ron Paul being on their ticket. Why? Because it violates their rules for this late of an inclusion. Unlike the Republicans they are actually following their own rules.
