Ron Paul write-in vote alive and well

After the first Free and Equal third-party debate, a mighty jolt affected the Ron Paul write-in revolution causing many to consider Gary Johnson, but some refuse to change. Who is or has written in Ron Paul? Besides all those in active write-in Ron Paul forums, websites, and blogs, the mainstream media reported the CEO of Overstock.com is one.

Another is, Hamdan Azhar, Huffington Post, Christian Science Monitor writer who ended his Policymic article, “I love Ron Paul very much...I could never see myself voting for Obama or Romney so I might as well write in Ron Paul out of my dedication to his principles.”

Then there is Lorenzo, from a Nov. 2 Valente Journal entry, "Take a stand against tyranny! Take a stand against corruption! Against fascism! Against socialism! Against the occupation of other sovereign nations! Against your very own enslavement! I’m writing in Ron Paul because he understands the 1st 10 Amendments are our Bill of Rights, which are unalienable rights[power] given to us by our creator."

Sailing tweeted, "On TUESDAY let's get #WriteInRonPaul TRENDING!"

Many people argue whether writing in a candidate will be a wasted vote....

hmm

You said you will not vote.

Hmm.

Why do you come to my treads to slam my comments?
You are a non-voter right?

What is your beef?

YOU are a non-voter

we know that for sure

"Truth is Treason in an Empire that lies" - Ron Paul

Educate the masses, and win in the end.

This isn't your thread.

And I do not need your permission to respond to your posts.

That said, you said in another thread that Steph is your friend. You said you respect her choice. But what you are spewing at her is not respectful at all.

In fact, you have shown little respect for most people here, other than some token displays. Anyone can look at your history and see how you've been behaving.

You are correct that I will not be voting, so I guess that makes two of us since you won't be voting in our elections, either.

Whether I choose to vote or not is my choice. I think a voting boycott would make a louder statement than voting at this point, although I realize it would have more impact en masse. But I cannot decide for everyone else what they should do.

As for my having ~slammed~ you, it is not because you prefer Johnson. I do understand why some may be considering other options such as him since write in's for RP will not count everywhere, although I do not consider him a real alternative to Ron Paul at all and am very wary of GJ. But I have actually said very little to you about Johnson. Most of my comments to you since I've been back have been about your behavior.

You have turned so hostile and mean toward most people and it boggles my mind and I'm surprised MN has allowed you to carry on the way you have. It's like I've come back to find a different and very disrespectful person using your computer.

Thanks Jiminy Cricket

Very positive and respectful post. You could have gotten ugly and took the low road, but I feel your comment was quite mature and to be honored.

Thank you for defending me as well as many here. There is no reason why someone can't change and their past can't be wiped out. I believe the same for Tom. Start today to choose to speak maturely to everyone and I am sure things can turn around. But right now, many are leery.

Thank you.

I didn't see your post here before I posted to you above.

Thank you for your contributions and for writing and voting from your heart.

And thank you for the kind words here.

LL and I go back a ways here, so hopefully he'll know I'm fine with new beginnings.

You would understand the good fight

If you stayed here all along.

When folks like you give up and drift away...and then try to come back as activists -- do not be surprised when the door hits you in the head.

There ya go with your presumptions again.

There is life outside of DP. I do what I do. If it counts as activism, so be it. If it doesn't measure up to your standards, too bad.

I didn't come marching in here boasting activism, unlike you have been doing to people as you inform that that you're the ~real activist~ and insulting them with labels "pseudo-activist".

I am not in competition with anyone. That is not why I am here, and it is doubtful that most others are for that reason, either.

You chide Steph about not helping the Liberty Movement to grow, yet you seem to be doing your best to dismiss fellow members and run them off if they do not go along with you. That seems counter-productive to the growth you say you want.

Perhaps a little respect might help to further that goal. ;)

Legalize It Looks Like Your Article About Me Is Gone

Maybe you should remove it from your tagline since it goes to dead space now.

Article about me:
http://www.allvoices.com/contributed-news/11045886-ron-paul-...

Maybe you stepped way out of bounds with Stephanie and that was the price you payed.

November 6th 2012 I voted for Dr.Ron Paul
"We must remember, elections are short-term efforts. Revolutions are long-term projects." ~ Ron Paul

Thanks Pollman, I would have liked....

to keep that article up, but it was about someone who supported Ron Paul. No longer is that true, so therefore the article had to come down. I am very sorry for misrepresenting Ron Paul. I had no idea one of his "strongest supporters" would turn and become so lethal.

I totally respect those who have chosen to go with Gary Johnson, trying to keep liberty alive, but in this case, the person I wrote about misrepresented both candidates and I will not promote or be associated with that kind of behavior.

Thank you to those of you who are representing with respect, I am sure that is what both Johnson and Paul would want.

Thanks, Stephanie Ealy

You didn't do anything wrong Stephanie

You did the right thing. Some people do not understand the old adage:

Don't bite the hand that feeds you.

most write-in will not be counted or even reported

Is that how you want to show America and the entire planet how strong the Liberty Movement has become?

Ron Paul absolutists want to drive the Liberty Movement to its grave!

Steph my friend.
Sorry - I speak from heart.
I state reality and not dwelling on the past.

Even God can't change the past.

LL you were a devout RPer

But now you are a devout GJer. That's fine, but please respect other's decision to stick with the good Dr. Many will not be moved, and will vote for the BEST candidate in their eyes.

I respect your new stance, I hope you will be able to respect others who believe there is no one who could run this country like President Paul.

My friend

As many of my friends point out that Ron Paul write-in absolutists are now worse than the war loving neo-cons.

We activists can't grow the Liberty Movement when we face the obstacles from these pseudo-liberty folks.

I have zero respect for people who undermine the growing Liberty Movement.

I have zero respect for people who attack a Liberty candidate Gary Johnson.

I have zero respect for people who decided to drive the Liberty Movement to its grave... with one good doc whose son not just endorsed 'Bomb Iran' Romney but is actually campaigning for him!

Tom you are going overboard to label

people because they disagree with your NEW decision.

Please respect others and they will do the same.

Seems like you, Tom, are fast and furiously losing respect on the DP because you do not show others respect.

Step back and take a minute before you post your comments that sound very absolute and rather lethal at times.

Relax Tom, everyone can agree to disagree, but perhaps you will not allow that?

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

down-votes from the 12 trolls here do not

--affect my activism.

Please Steph understand that most of the folks down-voting my comments and posts get banned over time.
I used to be a volunteer mod here for around two years.
This site is open for any idiot to register and post.
Some are in the camp of the enemy.

Do not fall "in love with the trolls here"

Hmm

I vote your divisive, and agressive post's down! Check out how long I have been here. Stop pretending you are only getting down votes from trolls and, Romney supporters, Obama supporters or other Non-liberty lovers.

Ive never been banned. You have though, from being a Moderator.

I dont think I (hopefully) , would ever get banned, because, I believe in Liberty, that is, people can CHOOSE to do as they please, as long as they dont infringe upon the rights of others.

Which also means, you can post as many unhelpful comments as you want, And Ill down vote them as much as I want, and if it comes to it, MN can ban you as quick as he wants, as, It is ultimately, His site!

Ron Paul for President's picture

Your presumptions of others,

condescending attitude, and insults really do nothing to make a positive impact.

So then, why would you

So then, why would you advocate that people write in GJ in Michigan? Kind of a waste of time if they won't even count it.

Blessings )o(

I actually know some folks next door in Michigan

Who already wrote-in Gary Johnson.

Gary Johnson is the future of the Liberty Movement and we show how strong we are by standing with him against the evil machine.

Do not dwell on the past.
How many folks out there still write-in Barry Goldwater and expect for things in America to change?

Think about it.

And no.
Rand Paul is not a friend of Liberty.

And none of what you just said addresses the question. If you believe that write in votes won't be counted, then why do you encourage people to write in GJ in Michigan?

great article!

Thanks Sailingaway are you...

Thanks Sailingaway are you the same sailing from the tweet in the article?

Yes, and when I posted it here and at RPF I made sure to include

my now famous tweet!!

Thanks for the tweet

It was the perfect addition to the article! =) I love adding tweets.
