Ron Paul Suggests He's Voting for Gary Johnson

BuzzFeed: In a Fox News interview, Ron Paul suggests he could be voting for Gary Johnson. He basically rules out both Romney and Obama, and then goes on to say there's a third option on the ballot in enough states to actually have the potential to win the election. It seems to me he is suggesting he supports Gary Johnson without explicitly saying it.

Of course, in the full-length video, he also affirms that supporters of the Freedom Movement are very individualistic and will all make up there own minds. As much as I would love to hear Ron Paul say explicitly who he's voting for, I do applaud is intentions to have us all make up our minds for ourselves.

Quote:

"I obviously haven't announced in support for Romney, so that means that's very unlikely," Paul said. "And I don't think anybody think's I'm going to vote for Obama. So it's back to that frustration level in not seeing a dramatic choice in how the system works."

Ron Paul specifically said he had NOT decided for whom...

he would vote for POTUS; and, sadly, he did NOT rule out Romney. Congressman Paul made some specific demands that Governor Romney would have to meet, but Romney has no problem with agreeing to demands; he simply breaks his word as soon as politically expedient. Congressman Paul made it clear he was certain that Romney would not meet his demands and I am praying Congressman Paul is right. I really wish Congressman Paul would simply state he will not vote for Romney or Obama under ANY circumstances. Governor Jesse Ventura said it best, when asked, "If someone held a gun to your head and insisted you vote for either Obama or Romney, what would you do?" "I'd take the bullet," Governor Ventura replied. Pro-choice athiest or you, you have to love the man for that statement alone.

Abandoned Principles

Ron Paul cannot endorse Gary Johnson, for it would undue all of his pro-life and pro-marriage efforts (Johnson is an uber-liberal). As far as 3rd party goes, Virgil Goode is the only one. Virgil Goode 2012

Johnson isn't a liberal.

Johnson isn't a liberal. Virgil Goode is okay, but he stance on the drug war and his past support for the Iraq War makes me like him a little less then Johnson.

That being said, I won't discourage anyone from voting for either of them. As long as it isn't Romney or Obama. :P

Is TX now a write in state for RP?

My bet is RP votes GJ.

If I try to imagine Ron Paul

writing himself in, it just doesn't ring authentic.

OTOH, his voting for GJ seems much more likely.

I thought he made that pretty

I thought he made that pretty clear on tne "Tonight Show".

The 'yeah' was about GJ being in debates, not Ron voting for him

Ron specifically said in the same interview on Fox that he was NOT saying he would vote for GJ.

Yeah, I hate it when he holds backe

Respectfully...

Respectfully... WHO CARES WHO RON PAUL IS VOTING FOR!

Ron Paul made it clear that he wouldn't endorse any one candidate because it would inflict on an individuals fair opinion on who to vote for.(and partially because he doesn't want to endorse a libertarian candidate if he decides to run republican again in 4 years)

Ron Paul did the right thing by not endorsing anyone... We know who we want to vote for. Has no one learned Ron Paul's message to not follow but to lead?

A message without meaning falls on deft ears, meaning without a message falls on no ears, but a message with meaning is revolutionary.

I think

it doesn't really matter who Ron Paul votes for. I think everyone needs to look at the information they have and make their own decision.
This run with the herd mentality is what perpetuates the two party system.

If I was Ron Paul I would

If I was Ron Paul I would never admit for whom I was voting, becuase then he would be pointed at as the spoiler, for his endorsement would draw votes to that candidate and our movement would suffer. nah...if I were him I would not say a word...

If my need to be RIGHT is greater than my desire for TRUTH, then I will not recognize it when it arrives ~ Libertybelle

How Do you Know

he won't just vote for HIMSELF?

skippy

Who the fuck cares...

who Ron Paul is voting for...
he was cheated and defrauded out of his chance to speak to America on the main stage...end of story!

I'm voting Ron Paul...why?
Because he is the legitimate, legally qualified candidate
and is waiting for us to call him so...

I would agree that suggests

I would agree that suggests he may be voting Gary Johnson! There is no one else on the Ballot worth voting for that can win.

The only "suggestion" going on around here

Is the hypnotic state of mind you people must be in to interpret that quote to mean he is voting for Johnson.

The suggestion comes from the original poster - and the upvoters are the eager volunteers of hypnotic suggestion.

I can see where you are

I can see where you are coming from. I'd like to see more of what you are saying, since I see a lot of patterns of caused drone behavior as well.

I think a lot of this has to do with group think. In a political system where you are trained that voting is a matter of your life and all good things, you stop thinking as an individual, and the only thing that matters is getting others to believe what you want to be believed.

Arguments cease being the nature of truth - how do I know something so I can do something, knowledge is power; To how can I get others to believe like I want them to believe to do something, the group is the power.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

Headline is misleading...

He did not say there "is a third option.." he said there are other people. This could be Johnson, Stein, or Goode.

People need to get over the fact that Ron is just not going to tell us this year, like he did 4 years ago when he told us he was voting for the Constitution Party.

My guess is Ron is voting for Virgil Goode, but I am still writing in Ron Paul.

Ron Paul 2012 - It's Almost Here!

better hope ron paul is

better hope ron paul is certified. if not . you could invalidate your whole ballot. dnc/rnc will love you because they can invalidate your whole ballot if you mark your ballot and writing in an un-certified candidate= throw your whole ballot away. Think they will not? good luck. might as well stay home and vote on sims/ps3 where it might count.

i figured out the difference today between...

Romney/Johnson/obombya supporters and all of the rest of us, the majority Ron Paul supporters.

They all still have a hope in the insanity of Einstein's dilemma. Do the same thing over again...

We have faced down the devil and are ready to do battle.

They are weak.

Write in Ron Paul

Write in RP

while RP votes for GJ ?....makes sense! You just lumped RP in with the status quo....btw, ive been a Paul supporter for 12 long years and i, like Ron Paul...will be voting for GJ...the only vote that will count... ;)

Ron Paul is not going to vote for GJ

GJ is pro-choice, RP is not
GJ is for same sex marriage RP is not
GJ is for gitmoe remaining iopen, US ocvcupying with prisons other nations, RP is not
GJ is for some war, RP is not
GJ will work with the Fed, GP will not

RP is not going to vote for GJ.

GJ is for some war?

are you stoopid?

No politician nor should anyone say they are for no war..that is stoopid. Did you know that Ron voted to support the war in Afghanistan?

Did you know that Ron supported the Israeli's bombing Iraq in 1988?

Ron does support a just war. Gary opposes the Afghan and the Iraq war and opposes war against Iran.

And Gary DOES want to end the fed, repeal legal tender laws, return to sound money and eliminate the IRS. Get your facts straight you nut.

he sure as hell aint

voting for romney, like you are.

write in Ron Paul
