Just saw some hilarious GJ BS on here

Someone said that they were voting for GJ bc he was the lessor of the good candidate available.

Isnt that the same as voting to the lessor of two evils?

I dont give a flying F if write ins arent counted in some states, Ron Paul will get more in write-ins than GJ will on the regular ballot.

Even if write-ins arent counted in your particular state....be a man or woman of principal....thats why we are all here right? We wanted Paul to win the Presidency bc he has principals and values.

Where are your principals and values, damn cowards......

So many of you GJ people are most likely paid staffers, just like on the Rmoney facebook page before the convention.

Stop the BS.

Lessor of two good.....give me a break.

Grow a pair and pick up your proverbial rifle and vote like we all promised....Paul or no one....show the establishment what happens when you alienate and disenfranchise their own.

I'm not doubting you, but you

I'm not doubting you, but you might want to double check that they are in fact counted and reported. Most votes are cast into a machine where they are counted electronically. "Usually" unless there is a reason to recount the votes by hand, write-in's are not counted.

If you are correct and they will report on an actual RP write-in count, then I absolutely agree with your decision to write-in and I would do the same. I live in NJ, which is also a write-in state, but they do not count the write in's unless there is a reason to hand count them.

We have hand counted paper

We have hand counted paper ballots here.

Blessings )o(

The only states that do not

The only states that do not allow write ins are: nv, SD, OK, ar, la, and Ms.

You missed NM

Yeah, I know and you missed New Mexico...

8 States do not allow any write-in votes.

8 States have sore loser laws that prevent someone who ran in the primary from being a write in candidate.

24 States require a write-in candidate to sign and notarize paperwork to be a write-in candidate and it is unlikely that Ron Paul will do this.

10 States may allow a write-in candidate but the votes will not necessarily be counted or reported.

...And of the 10 states that do allow write-in candidate most will not count them unless there is a discrepancy in the vote or a re-count where each vote gets counted by hand.

"They won't get funds....look

"They won't get funds....look at what happened last week, Gj sued"
If a third-party candidate can get over 5% in polling, then YES, they will get funds. Gary Johnson didn't reach that threshold.


"Gj getting 4-6% of the vote will change nothing. Obama wins."
I think you missed the point of his post, we're looking at the bigger picture. At the effect it will have on 2016 and beyond

2016....ron paul or no

2016....ron paul or no one.

IF there's an election.

And if Ron isn't running in 2016, and there are good options,

like maybe Judge Napolitano, or such, then to you - it's still "no one?"

So from here until eternity, no matter how good a candidate may be, if they aren't the one and only Ronald Ernest Paul, then you aren't going to vote for them?

If he is not running....then

If he is not running....then sure....I'll vote my conscience. As of right now, Paul is an option in my state.

If he is....then.well....you know the answer to that.

There is no poll that suggests this

You've been here a week, why should people just take your word for it?

What poll suggests that Gj

What poll suggests that Gj will get more than 5% of the vote nationally? Or should I take your words for it??

If people like you stop

If people like you stop suggesting RP supporters should not vote for GJ, whose vote WILL be counted, and should write-in RP's name, whose vote WILL NOT be counted, then maybe we have a shot at making a statement!

The Liberty vote NEEDS to be counted!

lol

They shut out ron paul ON NATIONAL LIVE FN TELEVISION. What makes you really believe that any of our votes will be counted?

Of all the evidence of fraud and illegal tactics, what makes you really think anything other than an Obama reelection will take place???

I will write in paul anyway bc I promised I will and nothing will change that.

Well, then why vote at

Well, then why vote at all?...why even write-in?

bc my family and i defended our right to do so.

And if, by God, it is counted, I want the gop to see one more vote they lost.

Oh would you stop it with the

Oh would you stop it with the 'holier than thou' diatribes?! You and your family defended my rights? When? And I don't particularly give a damn about military service, if that's what you're referring to. Our military is paid, and voluntary. No one owes you anything, including respect.

Jason

Happy Libertarian

The GOP won't see another vote they lost because yours

won't be counted.

Not sure why you can't grasp that fact.

Dude!

Dude! Re-read your comment just above my last comment.

im sorry, did I mess

im sorry, did I mess something?

Yeah, the part where you said

Yeah, the part where you said this:

"What makes you really believe that any of our votes will be counted? Of all the evidence of fraud and illegal tactics, what makes you really think anything other than an Obama reelection will take place???"

You're telling me it won't be counted anyway, even if you write RP in; so again...If that's how you truly feel then why even write-in? I don't get it? Why play along?

I dont really know why

But thats what Ive decided to do.

Im doing that bc I promised to a long time ago. I am a man and I stand by my promises.

OK and as long as we're both

OK and as long as we're both "playing" along; we should at least do the best we can do to be heard.

I Know GJ's votes will at least be tallied and reported on (truthfully or not)...Out of the 10 states that actually allow write-in candidates, we can only guess if the write-in's will be reported...let alone counted. Most likely they will not even be counted...most likely they will just be pushed aside, unless a hand count is needed. And nobody will know if you wrote in RP or Tim Tebow.

LOL

Donald Duck or Captain Picard???

I love Ron Paul, but he is

I love Ron Paul, but he is not an official candidate. A write in vote for RP will not help our movement. No news network, newspaper or website is going to report the next day..."Ron Paul recieved XX% of the write in vote". Not because they are biased, but simply because your write in vote WILL NOT be counted!

A vote for Gary Johnson WILL be counted and will show our srength.

We need to show our strength!...WE NEED TO BE COUNTED!

I dont think I have ever played the TROLL card, but

I think lastbill is just trolling. Look how aggressive and divisive this person is, and has only been a DP member for less than 8 hrs... this is a junk post.

But yep I agree, methinks somebody made a second account on the dailypaul...

lastbill = ecorob maybe?

ecorob "left" at the same time lastbill joined, both are aggressive/divisive and heavily anti-GJ

Time in forum has nothing to

Time in forum has nothing to do with anything.

I was looking here since later 2011.

Registration was locked here for a long time during august. I'm sure a mod can tell you how long. I wanted to be a member but couldn't.

The only ppl that were divisive were Gj folks after rand endorsed rmoney. After that...they flocked here in droves spreading BS and confusion.

I believe in liberty and freedom. I believe that we should sty out of other countries business and squabbles. I believe gitmo should be closed. I believe small groups of elites should t be able to dictate policy...like cfr.

Too bad Gj doesn't believe the same.

I dont know what you mean. I didnt flock here at that time...

I've been here for over 4 years.
And yes, amount of time here does mean something, its a way to guage what a person has said in the past. So far, your "past" here shows you to be someone who stirs up trouble.

I only meant the people who

I only meant the people who flocked here right after Rand endorsed rmoney...remember that?

I am only stirring up trouble if the "pot" is idiotic GJ stuff abouttwo things:

a.)Electing him above both main political parties.
b.)setting him up for the future against the main political parties to somehow gain more momentum later.

If that "pot" is brewing, then I can see trouble when I interject my views.

What did RP say? "truth is treason in the empire of lies"

Right now, the current climate on here is RP is gone and buried and now jump on the GJ train. He isnt exactly what we want but he is good enough for me. GJ is the future and w should look past his questionable things that make if only 98.2% RP.

Right now, this site has become....anyone but Paul bc he cant win....gee, we heard that for years.

I Promise....I am not a troll here to incite a response of negativity.

I am here to contribute to a RON PAUL website.

Ron Paul is at it now!

how dare he say Gary Johnson should be at the debates!

I think he should be in the

I think he should be in the debates. I think he is an OK candidate. But he isn't enough to pull me from my decision I made a long time ago. Rp is the only person that can beat obama. The nomination was stolen from him.

Gj will not be on the debates bc the establishment doesn't want him to be. They couldn't block Rp from the debates bc that would've been obvious. Since Gj is unknown, they can block him and no one will miss him.
