The Reason for a Ron Paul Write-in the Vote BombSubmitted by SemperFi on Fri, 09/28/2012 - 08:59
In response to criticism over my proposal for a Ron Paul write in the vote, everyone needs to see that it is more than just a gesture of protest.
A Ron Paul write-in vote will demonstrate how big we RP supporters are as voting commodity. Think of the write-in bomb a boycott to bring the Neo-cons and faux-libertarians to heel, and make them see they will have to make some serious and sustainable changes before they will get our vote. Plus, that we will continue to recruit more hard-core RP libertarian voters who also will withhold their votes from the RINOS.
So the goal is to build a large base of serious voters who will exercise political power by NOT voting for the lesser of the two evils, in effect, create the split-vote crisis the GOP sought to avoid by disqualifying Ron Paul's delegates at Tampa from nominating him.
A non-vote deliberately withheld is just as devastating as a split one.
