We are going to re-elect Obama by voting for someone else?

The Examiner: When Ross Perot ran as a third-party candidate, he took just enough votes to guarantee a Bill Clinton presidency. Today, the Ron Paul supporters who refuse to vote for Mitt Romney because he’s not “pure” enough may well guarantee an Obama re-election.

Today’s polling tells us that the election is going to be close. While one can interpret the polling data and the sampling methods to show a variety of results, there can be no disputing that the outcome is far from pre-determined and decided.

Given that reality, the votes of that contingent of rabid Ron Paul supporters are quite capable of being a deciding factor of the outcome of November’s contest. So Ron Paul’s supporters must ask themselves a number of questions:

Seems like all presidents should serve two terms:

The first one in the white house, the second one in prison.

I love my country
I am appalled by my government

For this election cycle, the

For this election cycle, the only positive left, is if Obammy wins, he's out in 4 years. And, the establishment will have to hire 2 candidates in 2016. Other than that, it's all the same.

"because he’s not “pure” enough "

OMFG. That makes is sound like Romney is just a little less good than Ron Paul. Like he's not perfect, but certainly worthy of our vote.

Romney's not just "not pure enough", he's downright awful. Anybody that supports NDAA, is against medical marijuana, and all the other crap that Romney supports that I hate, will never get my vote, even if it means handing it to Obama again.

'Cause there's a monster on the loose

At least the comment section

At least the comment section is worth reading.

I can't wait for the debates.

I can't wait for the debates. Obama...being the smooth talker he is...is going to smear the floor with Misfits face. One mention of Misfits advisors and cabinet it is all over for the spoild rich kid. How did George Dubsters work out for us the first time?

The election is not going to

The election is not going to be close. Romney does not have a chance now that he disenfranchised all the Ron Paul supporters. The RNC declared war on us in tampa. If they want a political war then they will get one. November will be payback time.

Truth Is Obama Is Better Than Romney, Libertarian-wise.

A look at Romney's foreign policy advisers makes it clear that he is not preferable to Obama. Foreign policy is a major area of concern for libertarians, and while Obama has not suited us on this front, Romney would likely be much worse.

As Walter Block says: "Gary Johnson is no Murray Rothbard. He is no Ron Paul. But compared to Romney and Obama? It is no contest. The counter argument is, a vote for Johnson is a vote for Obama. So what? I favor Obama over Romney in any case."

"Bipartisan: both parties acting in concert to put both of their hands in your pocket."-Rothbard

oh BS..... Obama is just as

oh BS..... Obama is just as bad at foreign policy. Obama bombed more countries then Bush. Only Bush bombed the ones he did a little more thoroughly.

Romney Would Go To War With Iran Much More Readily

In fact, were he president now, he would already have done so. After all, he has basically said that whatever Netanyahu says goes. At least Obama is pushing back against Netanyahu's insistence that we attack Iran and start WWIII.

"Bipartisan: both parties acting in concert to put both of their hands in your pocket."-Rothbard

I appreciated that Obama did not blow up the world

when Israel pretty much bequeathed it last year when they started all this b.s. about Iran. Obama told them to take a hike- thus http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/01/20/secret-service-in...


3rd party in every option .

don't blame us

Our votes don't count in the general election.. it's all up to the electoral college. It happened before that the popular vote was different from the electoral college, and they didn't go with the popular vote. might as well vote your conscience.

Does anyone know Kevin Erickson

the Minnesota delegate in the video? He spoke well and knew the facts. I see a potential liberty candidate.

The Obama vs Romney made for TV drama...

it won't make any difference WHO wins in this season's Reality show, titled "Presidential Election". Besides, Romney made it perfectly clear that he didn't want our votes. There was no reason to treat Ron Paul's supporters the way he did before and at the convention. NOW he calls for a life raft? Throw him an anvil on a rope, ACME! We can't "split" the vote, Romney has none. Half of zero is still zero, clown.

If you see something, say something, the government is listening.

Vote for Dems at every level

My congressman voted for NDAA

Republicans must be made to pay.

Famous Quote from Justice William O. Douglas

"The Constitution is not neutral.
It was designed to take the government
off the backs of people."

that is stupidity.... vote

that is stupidity.... vote libertarian at every level.

What's the difference?

What's the difference? Romney and Obama are equally loathesome candidates.

Do you see the divide an conquer strategy this is ...

....turning into. A split within the republican party ?

Is this how they kill the liberty movement ? by masses of scared dim-wit conservatives who nominate a president who doesn't have a conservative bone in their body ?

The election for president does not matter, it is pre-decided by a few corporations and their trusted advisers.

Now this is rich.

You post this wanting us to back the same people that spit in our faces, cause your little tin god can't cut it without us and you call us "rabid Ron Paul supporters", calling us names is no way to make friends, or get votes. I'll never go to the "dark side".

A Vote for Romney Guarantees WAR WITH IRAN

This should be an easy issue.

Any vote for Mitt Romney guarantees WAR With Iran period. The consequences of this will be devastating. Can you say $6.00/Gallon Gasoline? Do you want a WWIII scenario with U.S, Israel, and Britain on one side, and China, Iran, Russia, and possibly Venezuela on the other?

Mitt Romney is a total 100%, Federal Reserve/Wall Street/Global War puppet.

Now, granted, so is Obama as well, but at least he has deliberated somewhat before plunging us into a full bore tragedy of mass violence with Iran, that will totally sink the Economy (among other heinous and immoral consequences).

This is the time to reject both Political Parties here, and finally vote your conscience. A large vote away from the two criminal Parties, and instead in favor of Gary Johnson (Libertarian), or Rocky Anderson (Constitution Party), or Dr. Jill Stein (Green) is the only way to begin to bring about a different Dialog in this sick Country, and begin to put pressure on the Establishment.

It is time to turn off the damn TV, Vote 3rd-Party, and show the World just how many people in this Country reject the path that we've been put on by the current owner class.

But the very worst possible conceivable choice here would be to put just a 'prettier version' of Dick Cheney back into office all over again -- which is what Mitt Romney is.

SteveMT's picture

Will it matter if Romney gets elected? That is the question,....

and the answer is no, IMO. They are both owned by the same puppet-masters, so there will be no difference.

As soon as Romney stole the nomination from Ron Paul (Now there's a name that not mentioned much around here lately), the result of this election became meaningless. It's either going to be: meet the same boss, OR meet the new boss, the same as the old boss.

Funny how we are considered the deciding factor

Why don't they lambast the majority of citizens who never or seldom vote at all?

Just because I won't vote for Hitler doesn't mean its my fault Stalin stays in power!--Who put him in office in the first place 4 years ago?!?!?! Not me!

Awesome analogy with Hitler

Awesome analogy with Hitler and Stalin!

Does anyone here

Does anyone here really care if it's Obama or Romney?
They are the same thing.
If you vote for Romney you will still get Obama.
Obama signed NDAA, and Romney said he would too.
What's the difference between Obama and Bush? Nothing.

So, as a long time supporter of Dr. Paul and based on the fact that the Republicans did everything to "black out" the good doctor, I say we might as well get some satisfaction of knowing we deprived those Scallawags, errr I mean Republicans the White House.

Interesting how MSM will now use the good doctor's name, now that they have their "chosen one" nominated.

most people who voted for Perot voted republican afterward

They are counting on Paul supporters doing the same.

But things are different this time. More people have caught on to the two party illusion, they are more informed, they are less susceptible to mainstream media...all thanks to the internet.

The power that be are playing their only hand with a straight face...outlast our resolve.

Thus, it is we who must say "Never again!" But in the context that we will never again let our desire to fit in socially as other discuss whatever story they yet to distract us with.

Further we need to learn from Ventura in asserting our beliefs in common discussions. The net to his rhetoric is preparation...the guy knows the facts.

You can't make this up

I guess the only difference

is the name. Kudos to the man asking the question.

The question I'm asking is

The question I'm asking is how much does the Romney Campaign pay you? ... because no real Paul supporter would be here asking us to reward Romney and the Republican party after what they did to Ron Paul and the delegates we sent to the RNC.

what wasthe difference between Clinton and Bush? nothing

What's the difference between Obama and Romney? Nothing

Go away.
