Ron Paul Should Have Endorsed Gary Johnson

Ron should have endorsed Gary just based on his stellar record of fiscal conservatism as Governor of New Mexico.

This election isn't about social issues like abortion, it is about fiscal conservatism and civil liberties! Gary Johnson has a superb resume and is just as qualified to be President as Ron Paul.

I suspect Ron Paul is protecting the GOP and Rand Paul just like he did all year by refusing to confront Romney with OUR MONEY! It's too bad Ron chose to end his career in such a deceitful way. It is a huge stain on his otherwise flawless record of integrity.

Obligation was an obvious intent of your words.

You can spin it however you like I suppose. If you really meant to say what you just said to me then you SHOULD HAVE said it that way.

Your the one spinning it by inserting the word obligated....

get out of the second grade already.

You are a child so go ahead and take the last word, conversation is over.

I never said you used the word..

I said that was your obvious intent.

"Ron asked millions of us to endorse him and we did, don't you find it a bit arrogant that he isn't willing to do the same?"

Here you are calling him arrogant because he hasn't endorsed the guy you believe in.. You don't call someone that unless you feel he is doing something wrong by his behavior.

The fact remains is that you are stating that he has done something wrong and he hasn't so I know from what you write that you believe he SHOULD HAVE done what YOU thought was right.

The problem is that YOU'RE WRONG for thinking he owes Gary or you anything. Nobody forced you to back him.

So yeah.. Keep the lies coming.

If anyone is acting like a child it's people like you that feel entitled.

Endorsing someone is not stopping anyone from making a decision.

It only shows support for a candidate. I think this is one of the biggest misunderstandings about libertarianism. Persuasion, argument, debate, even name calling or insults are not counter to the libertarian ideal. Using force is another matter, but using persuasion and disagreeing with others is completely consistent with liberty.

I wasn't saying Paul would be unlibertarian if he was to endorse

Just that he didn't want to nudge us toward any specific candidate. He would have every right to do so if he wanted to however.

It is an enormous simplification to speak of the American mind. Every American has his own mind.
