Love and Politics: Why I Am Writing in Ron Paul on Election Day

Politics is admittedly a depressing affair these days. I can hardly think of any normal people who are enthusiastically supporting either Barack Obama or Mitt Romney. The misguided progressives who plan to vote for Obama on Tuesday do so primarily out of party loyalty and a fear of crazy Republicans.

Curiously, the last time I saw heartfelt passion in politics was at the Republican National Convention in August. One literally could not walk 20 feet in the convention center without spotting a Ron Paul button — on delegates, guests, even media. Strangers would break into grins and bear hug one another to the astonishment of wide-eyed neoconservatives, taken aback at how every other young person in attendance seemed to be a supporter of a 77-year old obstetrician from Lake Jackson, Texas.

During the roll call of the states, cheers broke out throughout the hall when Ron Paul’s delegate wins were announced. Although the party did everything in their power to prevent Paul’s name from being mentioned on the floor, it inevitably was, and no less than 26 times — one for each state where the campaign won delegates.

“You have to give Ron Paul credit for bringing all these young people into the party,” one Romney delegate told me. “It’s a shame the party hasn’t been more welcoming.”

The Maine delegation, unseated at the last minute since it contained too many Ron Paul supporters, led a walkout off the floor and marched on Level 3. As the march grew louder, chanting, “As goes Maine, so goes the nation,” it struck me: the vitality and passion I saw in the Ron Paul movement was unlike anything I had ever seen in modern politics. This was the difference between a spontaneous grassroots movement and an artificial establishment-choreographed sideshow.

Bump for a article that explains exactly why I wrote in Ron Paul

:-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

Neither major party or candidate is deserving

Ron Paul rEVOLution is beyond what and who are deserving because we know neither are, and yet one will be anyways.

So if one is going to be anyways, then it becomes a matter of picking one.. which in my case, Ron Paul did that for me.. he insisted on the GOP, remains in the GOP and now he has a freaking rEVOLution in the GOP, where many of us who were actually hurt by the GOP, RNC and Romney are still giving him the vote.. why? Because he's a perfect example of exactly what is wrong and we know because he wronged us, and it is Ron Paul republiCANs who are deserving of the opportunity to serve Romney.

I hope we see some good resolutions writen explaining how Romney is not acting with the constitution and how we can solve that, hopefully have congress pick it up, get Rand to bring power back to the people, for the majority of Republicans didn't want Romney, we got Romney and seems to me, it would be right to elect Romney to have Romney restore the republic.. something I have no hope in Obama doing at all.

I understand that others do not have it so easy as me.. they are not in the GOP and wish Ron Paul wasn't. They don't get it, and what they get, they are no different than the GOP they hate, misleading, lying, cheating, bullying fellow patriots to have things their way...they don't like Rand Paul, they are not part of the rEVOLution, they are part of a Liberty Movement which is nothing more than a astroturf, make a buck off some chump thinking they're fighting for Liberty.

Well, the fight is in the GOP. I've got a two year committment on my committee seat which I would prefer fighting Romney than Obama because it's not about 4 or 8 years for me.. It's about NOW.

Morning bump!

I wrote him in too...

because the romney group does not deserve to win the election, plain and simple. They've lied, cheated, and stole their way to the nomination and I will not stand for it. Therefor, everyone in THIS household is writing in the good Dr. plain and simple.

Its about principal, not the lesser of two evils. Screw the establishment.

YES! You are the true

YES! You are the true patriot here!

I didn't see this sorry!
