Unhappy in MI

So I'm listening to Bill Press this morning on the way to work and he's telling democrats to vote for Romney because Romney would make it easier for democrats to win the general election. Some people calling in said they were voting for that reason, others said they're voting for McCain because they hate him the least. Have these people not heard of Ron Paul? To make matters worse I just saw an interview from Vegas where they asked Ron if he would run as a 3rd party candidate and he said very assertively, no. He basically said 3rd party candidates don't get treated fairly and don't have a chance to win. I want Ron Paul to win as much as anybody but I don't think his message has had enough time to get out yet. I think he could do really well as a 3rd party candidate in the general election and I hope he reconsiders if he doesn't win the nomination. His presence in this election so far has made a lot of people see how controlled our media really is, and he has educated us on many issues. Whether he wins the election or not, Ron Paul has made a big impact in this country and he just may have started a real revolution.

I'll go out on a limb here a second

I certainly dont want to put words in Ron Paul's mouth- or second guess him- so this is just my opinion. I hear him say things like "I have no intention of running third party" etc etc- but I honestly beleive that he's riding the Republican exposure- with the debates etc (as the only REAL Republican running he has every right to). Just because his fellow Republicns shun him and say that he's only causing division in the ranks is not a reason for him to leave as he is sincerely trying to return them to their original ideological dignity. If I were a betting man , Id say his plan is to milk the exposure he deserves as a true Republican until they , (even if he is #1 at the time of nomination) refuse to nominate him and then run independant- taking what by then will be a pretty nice chunk of the Republican base with him (me for one) and entering the final election phase that way. I just cannot see him saying "well- the Republicans didnt nominate me so thanks for your support- Im backing out of the presidential race". My crystal ball sees him riding this out to the end. Breaking ranks with the Republican party in the bottom of the ninth will make alot of people on the democratic side who arent really happy with their choices - take a closer look at someone who to their knowledge up until then was just another Republican. Of course he'd never come out and say that at this stage in the game- thatd just be political suicide- so he says "I have no intentions" and he dosnt- hes hoping against hope that his own party will return to their roots. Just my opinion...

The newsletter thing killed the 3rd party chance

It created a ceiling, of around 25 % - 75% of the voters will never support him, even if he was Jesus himself, because of that smear. If he would get close, you see all the OM bringing the issue up again.

The revolution should start considering alternative candidates to run third party for the general election.

Consider other candidates?

Never. He could die- God forbid- and id STILL write him in.

Custer led the 7th Michigan and then the 1st Michigan in mounted counterattacks. Riding in the van of each regiment, Custer shouted to the men, "Come on, you Wolverines!"
