Everyone Knows What Ron Paul Stands for, No One has Even Heard of Gary Johnson, That's Why Ron Paul Write in StrongerSubmitted by Sue4theBillofrights on Tue, 10/30/2012 - 14:49
I want to boil the argument for giving Ron Paul a strong write-in vote in the states where it will count to its most essential elements, in the most rational manner possible. Let us strip emotion from this debate.
A. There is zero chance anyone but Obamney will be coronated. The lefties have a strong candidate of their own, Jill Stein of the Green Party, who has integrity and the courage of her convictions even if you disagree with her politics. Tim Johnson will max out at 1% of the vote or 2% if he is lucky. It is a fantasy to think he will get 5% to qualify him for federal matching funds, and even if he did, it would not represent any "breakthrough" in the two party system. The Greens have already done this, and now have federal matching funds. It hasn't changed a thing.
B. No one has ever heard of Tim Johnson, much less knows what he stands for. In contrast, EVERYONE knows what Ron Paul stands for, because he has been repeating it consistently for years. Any news of a strong Ron Paul write-in vote will trigger people's memory of the Ron Paul message: Bill of Rights, End Middle East Wars/non-interventionism, Sound Money/End the Fed, No Bank-Bail-Outs. There is no mistaking, or later twisting, what a Ron Paul vote means.
C. The Ron Paul message was and is spreading by leaps and bounds. People I know whom I have been lobbying for a year have finally come around to Ron Paul, both liberals and conservatives, and now I couldn't talk them out of writing him in even if I wanted to. WE CAN'T STOP NOW.
D. The Liberty message doesn't transfer. Ron Paul IS the Liberty message. We worked for it, got bones broken for it, were mocked and ridiculed until it took hold. The Ron Paul Liberty message is a stallion charger snorting fire. You don't dismount before the charge and mount an untested nag like Tim Johnson. It makes no sense.
Ron Paul's write-in votes will be counted now in these states, according to state law and to attorney Richard Gilbert's success in obtaining settlements from states who now agree to count the write-in votes. It seems many state attorneys general have no interest in publicly fighting something as basic as counting write-in votes. It makes them look like jerks, and they face re-election like everyone else.
