Gonna be funny a few days after the election to come here and see all the Ron Paul write-in

people from most states saying "THEY DIDN'T EVEN REPORT MY VOTE IN THE NEWSPAPER!"

They will say "I did what everybody said to do and wrote in Ron Paul's name - but its not even reported in the news! I can't believe I got slighted AGAIN! Why did I even bother?"

And those of us who vote for Gary Johnson (which WILL be reported) will say "I told you so. You sure made a big mark that people will notice and that says something to the world..... NOT!

WHEN DID YOU LAST READ A NEWSPAPER with write-in tallies and a listing was given of ALL the write-in-votes according to who was written in?

NEVER.

On very rare occassion write-ins are counted and announced for very small races like school board. In exceptional cases small elections are actually WON by write-in candidates.

But when was the last time that you saw write-is counted and announced as to whom they were for in a Presidential election?

NEVER.

And why is that? Because people write in Pat Paulson, Donald Duck, The Tooth Fairy - people write all sorts of crazy things. And to actually announce "We had 30 votes for Mickey Mouse." would only encourage such foolish write-ins in the future.

So they MIGHT announce "We had x number of write-ins", but they will never tell us who they were for.

So why does anybody think that Ron Paul write-ins will be counted and announced?

It has never happened before and its not going to happen now.

Maybe because the press and government have been so fair with us in the past? (OF COURSE I'm kidding.)

Kind of funny, he/she went

Kind of funny, he/she went off line as soon as I posted to him/her/it...jetdry just won't work in this washer for some reason. It only makes an appearance and then, whoosh, its down the drain. Whats with that?

Happy to be

-13

Get over yourself

I don't get...

...all the down-votes for this post, as I actually AGREE with it for the most part.

Not a "legalize" type who thinks "GJ can win" or anything, but sure would like to see him gather in two percent or more, especially in boatloads of States where the Usurper "beats" Obamney by just 0.5--1.5%

FAIL

FAIL

Nothing funnier than disillusioned liberty lovers!

Yaeh, that'll be a HOOT!
Hey, know what's really funny? watching a liberty lover get harassed and beaten by a cop - good stuff! That'll teach them to not think and do exactly what I told them they ought to do!

How old are you? Six? I can't believe you would delight in the unhappiness of others, maybe you should just vote for Obamney, you seem to be cut from their cloth.

WE ARE IN THIS FIGHT TOGETHER - it would be lovely if we fought our common enemy rather than each other.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

WE ARE IN THIS FIGHT TOGETHER ???????

Apparently you haven't been reading the forum closely for a while.

there are those at this site that NEVER...

waver from Ron Paul and the Liberty movement...

you are so disconnected, did you not understand that when you came here?

did you think someone would change that?

apparently, the "we" we all speak of does not include you...else, you would understand who the "we" is here...

capiche?

What part of that don't you understand?

I agree that the write-ins

I agree that the write-ins for Ron Paul won't be reported. Most newspapers also won't report votes for the 3rd party candidates.

That all depends on the numbers...

...if it's a close race and GJ gets more than a couple points...what are they gonna do: report Mitt and Barack as both below 50%? Americans are dumb, but they can still see (I hope) that the sum of two numbers less than 50 is less than 100, and they might wonder "where's the rest?"

With a little luck, Libertarian Party total will be reported on TV on election night.

"Alas! I believe in the virtue of birds. And it only takes a feather for me to die laughing."

In a close race LP candidates

In a close race LP candidates never get even a couple of points.
Vote for Johnson if you think he's the best man, but don't vote for him because he's going to do well (he's not) or because the MSM will take notice (they won't).

does not matter one iota to us...

what matters is that the gop does NOT get the votes!

Mission Accomplished!

then just stay home and don't

then just stay home and don't vote at all. it has the same effect.

Other people...

Other people don't need to know you did the right thing. You are the only one that needs to know. Integrity is its own reward.

RickStone

Not sure about that

.. this one seems to crave attention.

But DID YOU DO the right thing? When you could have used your

vote to get closer to the 5% level and give the Libertarian Party more credibility?

if the Koch bros really wanted %5

for their LP they'd steer their co-opted tea party voters to GJ

What the??

The Koch brothers do not support the LP. They are Necons who funded the TeaBagger rallies as a psyop. How can you know so little?

Go to your county, get the numbers, and publish them yourself in your local paper.

Or do expect others to do all of the work for you.

As I repeat quite often, there is NO cohesion in this r3VOLution. If you plan to make a difference someday, you had better start by looking beyond your nose.

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

Absolutely correct

:-D

Integrity means having to say things that people don't want to hear & especially to say things that the regime doesnt want to hear -RonPaul

Yeah... thats not gonna happen.

Since I am voting for Gary Johnson - I am not likely to go an get that information from my county to publish in my newspaper.

And I doubt that 1% of Ron Paul write-in people will do it either - if the information is even available.

"Yeah... thats not gonna

"Yeah... thats not gonna happen"

this in response to being asked to look beyond your nose?

Maybe you ARE just a G.J. computer program?

I am ******** with a G.J. ******* machine?

The ones who count the votes

they will know the real tallies. That's who the message is directed towards. Writing in Ron Paul or leaving that line blank tells them that people are tired of voting on their fake candidates.

Voting 3rd-party sends the same message, only the intended audience is different. You should respect people's decisions to vote (or not) for the person he/she feels is the best for the job. If you want more gary voters, you have less than 4 days. Quit screwing around on an internet message board, go strap up your boots and start hitting the pavement.

They will record a vote for Ron Paul as "a write in".

They will record a vote for Mickey Mouse as "a write in".

They MIGHT tell us "We had x number of write ins".

But they will never say who they were for. Nor will they tally them except in a few states.

You continualy state problems

You continualy state problems but offer no thoughts or solutions to curtail the issue. Get real/get a life, most posters have ideas, do you?

they do in my state.

Then how many votes did Mickey Mouse get in 2008?

Did he beat The Tooth Fairy that year?
How many did Rasputin get?

(I'm betting they didn't tell you.)

Oh good grief, here you go

Oh good grief, here you go agian. When YOU see the Tooth Fairy and Rasputin tonight, please tell them we all said, "hi".
