Can we get a "Ron Paul" chant going at the debate tonight?

I saw this idea on Twitter. Any way to make it happen?

We can send a message that we won't forget what the establishment did to Ron Paul and that the r3VOLution is still alive. There will be millions of people watching all over the country.

And if we can't do it at this debate, maybe we can do it at the next one (so we'll have more time beforehand to plan it).

I want to know why

people are still under the illusion that Ron Paul is running. HELLO!!!!??? He is not running. He quit months ago!
He will not be on the ballots. Write him in if it makes you feel good. Otherwise vote for someone that is running and on the ballot!

Formerly rprevolutionist

Since RP is no longer

a contender it would make more sense for a chant of Third Parties or something similar ... to disrupt their lame proceedings tonight.
Here are four of them listed in order of most states qualified ....
Gary Johnson - Libertarian
Jill Stein - Green Party
Virgil Goode - Constitution
and Rocky Anderson - Justice

Ron Paul is not involved anymore - in case you forgot.

This two party system is corrupt and should be disrupted.

That would be so awesome

You sly dogs!

Lets do this!

Then we can install stupid-seeming implants in the debate to submit dumb questions but to pose real ones.

Wasting Time

I don't know who I'm voting for. It's not Obama. Probably not Mitt. But if I'm going to waste my time tonight, I think I'll go to the Mariner's vs. Angels game. At least I'll get to see Weaver pitch. And maybe, just maybe he'll win his 21st game!

Obama's first words

"You all should've picked Ron Paul."

Aaand the debate is over! Winner - Obama

Maybe

Jim Lehrer could start it up. :-)

Ah well, nice wishful thinking anyway.

I'm afraid that this will accomplish hardly anything at all

On the grand scheme of things, this will accomplish nothing. Actually it is going to have a very negative effect. Just put yourself in the shoes of a neocon. The very same neocon as many of the DP users once were. Chanting "Ron Paul" will be considered as a "sore loser" reaction, a disruption and lack of respect.

Responding to an issue is better than reacting. I believe that "Bring the troops home!" or "End the wars!" are better since those address an issue that already resonates with many neocons. Or "End the fraud of the FEDeral Reserve". Even chanting "End the FED" produces "WTH is that" type of reactions from the many under the mind-control of the MSM.

We should be more sensitive to what produces real results. If the Liberty Movement is perceived as combative, it will be harder to win minds for the cause of Liberty.

A more effective idea to continue the Liberty Movement **READ

We need to have a Gary Johnson twitter bomb during the debate with the hashtag they will use, but with Johnson. <--- Everyone can do this!

Second, anyone in the audience who supported Ron Paul and his the message of Liberty should get a Johnson chant going.

Demand he be included, if we don't do this we will be letting Ron Paul down, and everything he has been doing for 30 years. He paved the way, and Johnson is stepping through. I mean Ron Paul endorsed him, it is now our duty as patriots to follow through and RUN with the message of Liberty as hard as we can!

THIS IS IT!!!!

Ron Paul did NOT endorse Johnson

Don't make things up.

Better Idea..Boycott the Debate!

Boycott Presidential Debate on C-SPAN, ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC and LiveStreams Unless Gary Johnson is Allowed In!

If not watching it is boycotting it then

count me in.

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.
Ron Paul - The Revolution

Setting a good example is a far better way to spread ideals than through force of arms. Ron Paul

Bring our troops home Now.

I think that would be the most effective chant.Imagine how awkward that would make both of the actors on the stage feel.But more importantly,we should be chanting that at a mass march on D.C.before the election and making videos go viral that remind obama and romney supporters that their votes for obama and romney will DIRECTLY cause more deaths of troops and civilians.

I understand

I understand why you want to do this, but it's not practical. I planned on doing the same thing. But then I realized that the best thing we can do for Liberty, is vote for Gary Johnson and get him in the debate! Ron Paul endorsed him, Ron Paul new he would not get the nomination. BUt what he did was something bigger than him, you, me, and everyone else. He was doing it for Liberty. Ron Paul truly is the Thomas Jefferson of our lifetime. And we must not let him and his 30 years of work go to waste. Let us prove the Ron Paul revolution was real and is only getting bigger and became the Liberty Movement of 2012! And lets get a liberty minded candidate into the White House, it's what Ron Paul wants I'm certain thats who he is voting for! It's OUR turn to take that torch from Ron Paul and RUN, RUN as FAST as WE can!

Just my thoughts I would like to share.

I will

be voting for GJ as well, however I seriously doubt Ron Paul has specifically endorsed anyone.
Possibly you could infer it, but the actual words with "Endorse" among them, I don't believe have ever left his mouth for this election.

I think Gary is better than the 2 on the debates tonight.

Since I am allowed a vote of conscience, It will be for Ron Paul on Nov. 6th.

One word that describes you? "Consistent." - Dr. Ron Paul

NO ONE can write "Ron Paul"

NO ONE can write "Ron Paul" in on the ballot in Colorado. I've never heard a more ignorant suggestion in my life. Grow up and educate your self about the political process instead of trying to sound like a principled soul.

Colorado has Amendment 64 on the ballot which would legalize marijuana in the State.

ANYONE who makes illegal markings on the ballot risks having the entire thing invalidated. I would guess that most people who would vote for Ron Paul would also support Amendment 64.

So anyone willing to follow your stupid suggestions risks having Amendment 64 lose due to invalidated ballots from idiots who read posts like yours and think that they can just write whatever the heck they want on the ballot.

Is this what you want? Do you really want people's ballot to not count? Or are you just ignorant to the political landscape and choose to sound like a moron when suggesting people chant or write in Ron Paul.

Take your 9 month account and head on over to RedState where you can spew all the garbage you want.

My old johncarter44 pre-dates my new one so I've been here longer than what you stated, the state I currently live in allows for Write-In Candidates.

Well don't tell people to

Well don't tell people to chant "Write In RON PAUL" in a State where you can't write in Ron Paul....

Geez....

So annoying seeing all these comments on DP when many people already know that there are many states that can not physically write Ron Paul on the ballot.

Write-In if you can in your state if possible

I didn't say chant, and if I was in your state I would do the same for my vote to count for ending Hemp Prohibition.

You replied to a comment that

You replied to a comment that referenced a chant of 'Bring Our Troops Home' and said Write In President Paul while posting a link to a chant -- all while on a topic of chanting.

If you weren't advocating a chant of WRITE IN PRESIDENT PAUL then I have no idea what you were even saying on your post.

And what really gets me is all you people saying to write in Ron Paul. We all know that will serve no purpose and is actually damaging to the cause if you convenience people to write-in when their state does not allow for such tactics.

The 'Holier than thou' mentality is far more damaging than helpful. Quit giving out political suggestions on a national forum when your suggestions are harmful to other people in the Country. How would it make you feel should some of them actually listen to you -- only to have their ballots and votes invalidated?

No one can beat the facts except by us being silent.

When Jack Herer ran for President

He autographed his book for me and wrote as follows: 9/19/92

"Keep learning & teaching this Hemp knowledge non-stop till total victory. No one can beat the facts except by us being silent. Be loud. Love Jack"

Careful about comments encouraging write-ins!

That's incorrect.

Why even risk your ballot by doing a write in? More importantly, why risk other people's ballots, by encouraging them to do a write in? You get to send the same message to the establishment, and you help position the Liberty Movement in 2014 and 2016, by voting for Gary Johnson.

Idiot. I found this link

I found this link quicker than you typed your post I'm sure.

By August 2016, a write-in candidate for President must file the following with the Colorado Secretary of State Elections Division:
[1] An Affidavit of Intent for Write-In Designation And Declaration of Qualification for the presidential candidate. Notarization Required.
[2] An Affidavit of Intent for the vice-presidential candidate. Notarization Required.
[3] The Acceptance of Presidential Electors form. 9 Electors Required.

Did Ron Paul do any of those things?

NOOOOOO!

So can you write in Ron Paul's name on the ballot?

NOOOOO!

And Amendment 64 is far more important that a protest vote that will not count.

I don't care. I'll vote for

I don't care.

I'll vote for him no matter what.

People vote for Donald duck every election, I doubt he did paperwork.

I typed that faster than you can take a long walk off a short pier.

Idiot.

Same here.

I'll write it in bold across the front of the ballot. RON PAUL!

Nonsense.

Nonsense.
