If Ron Paul Made A Compelling Endorsement For Gary Johnson Would You Change Your Vote?

This is only for people who are writing in Ron Paul. I'd like to find out if Ron Paul could make the case for you to vote for Gary Johnson if he came out and expressed the need to unite the liberty movement in opposition to the two party duopoly.

Ron won't come right out and endorse anyone this time. I think he got too much backlash the last time he did that.

HE DIDN'T ENDORSE ANYONE LAST TIME.

He said people should vote third party and did not endorse ANYONE.

I'm seriously starting to think RON PAUL'S JOB IS TO DIVIDE THE OPPOSITION AND THIS IS PROOF - TWO CAMPAIGNS IN A ROW HE GAVE UP AND DID NOT ENDORSE ANYONE.

"every individual should make up their own mind"

Sooooooooooooooooo quit trying to make up my mind for me or change my mind for me. It is fine and well for you to state your mind, but it is high time for some of you guys to "let every individual should make up their own mind" and quit being coercive and degrading to the people that Ron Paul was speaking to.

Pathetic

Did i suggest you vote any particular way..
Can you show me any post anywhere I suggested you vote any particular way..or anyone else.
Have I ever tried to "make up your mind"..
bear, your words are complete fabrication, false and misleading..why is that so?
And don't you ever accuse me of being coercive and degrading to the people that Ron Paul was speaking to!!.

Don't take RP's words out of context, I posted his full and precise statement..you chose to down-vote it, so explain it to him , not to me, thank you.

You are right, that was pathetic of me

I didn't down vote your comment.

I appreciate you posting Ron Paul's complete statement, and I was wrong to state you were trying to get me to vote a certain way. Please accept my apology. I have gone back and looked at my comment and at your comment and I cannot say why I wrote what I wrote. It was uncalled for and I am sorry and a bit embarrassed as well. Thank you for bringing my error to my attention so I can be more careful.

Apology accepted bear

It's all past history, we are on the same team, the RP revolution.
I have to admit, I was surprised Ron Pauls views were down-voted by some people that won't or don't have the courage to explain themselves.

Yes, I ususally explain

Yes, I ususally explain myself without down-voting. Personally, I see no need unless there is a real need. Whatever that means :) Anyways thank you for accepting my apology and calling me out. Have a great weekend. If you have a chance, please stop by over here:

and let another one of our RP revolution team members know how much they are appreciated. I am appreciating you at the moment. Thanks again for great communication.

Well look at that!

A direct quote from Ron Paul got down-voted.

I think some people on here should take a long hard look at themselves.

He already DID that weeks ago. Ron Paul called Johnson...

..."A wonderful candidate who everyone should take a look at."

Those were Dr. Paul's words.

What more do you need?

THESE CRY BABIES couldn't care less about what Ron Paul

says.

They are stuck on his NAME.

NOPE

Stuck on Ron Paul's 2012 Platform which spelled L I B E R T Y.

How dare you call the Friends of Liberty cry babies.

I hear someone having a tantrum now, and it is coming from the one calling names.

Get over yourself!

I highly recommend you read your posts and follow your advice. It is pretty good, until it gets snarky.

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

Yah, I know

So now I am a cry baby snark snark :)

And I am dying laughing! Thanks :)

:)

Laughing together is SO much more fun!

(snark, WAHHHH!)

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.

Yes! Snark Snark

Yes, It is, thank you for laughing with me. Laughing is good :) I am sorry I was snarky, but the shark comes out when I perceive the record needs corrected and you may not have been along the same journey as I in that correction with the ally. I don't mind all the campaigning, but when people minimalize others or put out half-truths or misinformation (not all that ally) I see a need to correct the information. That ally could edit their post if they really wanted to correct the information. To me that says a lot.

I consider that comment an

I consider that comment an implied endorsement, but I don't expect anything more concrete. It was good of him to say anyway.

You are delusional, however

You are delusional, however you have the right to be.

Ron used similar language to describe Cynthia McKinney in 2008, and went on to endorse Chuck Baldwin. No beating around the bush, he endorsed him and supported him. However, he said nice things about McKinney and urged people to take a look at her. Using your logic one would have to assume that Ron supports the policies of the Green Party. Saying something nice about someone is not an endorsement...See recent comments of Chris Christie and Barry Obama about each other. :)

DO WE REALLY HAVE TO COVER

DO WE REALLY HAVE TO COVER THIS AGAIN?!

Stop

Stop complaining, and stop using all caps.

I really do hope all of you who write in Ron Paul will not....

come crying to the DAILY PAUL when the MSM blames you for Mitt Romney's defeat. The liberty movement will be completely dead in the GOP, as those who have been elected to party offices will be purged and there will be no place for you in the Libertarian Party, as there are as many petty Gary Johnson supporters as there are the likes of you.

Like Esau, you have traded your birthright for a bowl of soup.

Why does anyone

seriously care what the GOP thinks? Seriously, I don't get it.

ecorob's picture

you couldn't be more wrong...

we, in the liberty movement, are just beginning to store up our "capital"

the gop is dead, long live the new gop!

the neocons will die, we will see to that, we will join with like minded dems and indys to create a new coalition

you, too, bob, will join

the neocons and the socialists are dead...they just havn't realized it yet!

No.

Certainly not THIS election. My job is not done. When I got behind Ron Paul prior to primary, it was to the end.

2016 will be Justin Amash. If not, possibly Rand, maybe GJ then, or whoever proves to be the best Liberty/statesman running. Unless RP is back in the equation ;-)

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

Most of them will just kick a few more times in their highchair

and yell "Its not FAIR!" again.

If he was going to endorse

If he was going to endorse him, he wouldve already. He likes GJ, but not enough for an endorsement.

That tells me all I need to know, and I dont compromise my principals for anything or anyone.

Too Late.

Many people have already voted their conscious and wrote in Dr.Ron Paul, me included.

You spoiled your ballot

The mainstream media will have another "proof" the Liberty Movement is fringe by showcasing the bad showing for Gary Johnson.

You helped the Liberty Movement grow strong?
NOT!

Ron Paul was who we have supported from the start

"The mainstream media will have another "proof" the Liberty Movement is fringe by showcasing the bad showing for Gary Johnson. "

Gary Johnson was never "Our" candidate, Ron Paul was from the begining. So just because people didnt compromise and jump ship to a watered down version of liberty does not mean we are a fringe element, no matter what the Media tries to spin.

I want the world to know about, and research, Ron Paul and his philosophies and policies, not Gary Johnson's liberty-lite.

Ron Paul jumped ship

Not the liberty movement...

When did he announce an independent run? Don't you think that would have helped his write-in candidacy?

Ron Paul jumps for no-one!

Its about education, I want people to research RON PAUL, Not Gary Johnson, GJ didnt build this movement, Ron Paul did!
