If not Rand, then who? Do we start over? Not me

I got started politically at the age of 36 during the 2007 start of the primary season.

I remember writing "who is Ron Paul" in window paint on the back of my car window.
I remember always having a healthy supply of yard signs in my trunk, and a pocket full of Ron Paul stickers and slim jims.

I remember explaining who Ron Paul was to everyone who would listen, and even those who would not.

I remember being frustrated daily trying to introduce Ron Paul and explain why he was ignored by the media.

I remember making youtube videos to promote Ron

I remember the fight I was personally involved with and video taped at the Texas Straw poll http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YDnWT4gCJSE

I also remember how releaved I was in 2011 when I didnt have to do most of those things to get Ron Pauls name out because he was already a popular figure, and most people knew him.

I don't really want to start over again. I know lots of people are for Rand like I am, but there are others who are against him for one reason or another.

My question is to you
are you sitting this election out since Rand is not your man?
are you going to start from scratch again with another unknown candidate?
are you going to eventually vote for Rand once you have made your point that he needs to earn your trust?

If not Rand who?

Its Rand or bust OP

if he doesn't get in, keep your fallout pack stocked and ready to roll. I know I will have one for me, my wife and my son. When the chit hits I am going on foot if Rand doesn't make it in. The Rand bashers seem to want him to thread a needle in a game that is rigged, I chose other battles and trust Rand inherently. Rand is not one we have to scrutinize or battle, until we learn that we are screwed. We have obvious enemies all around us.

The R3volution requires action, not observation!!!!

Ron Paul has given me

Ron Paul has given me knowledge that I hadn't had before. For that he'll always be THAT person, to me. But.... I learned so well from him that I have given up this dream about the "right" government being the worlds savior.. It's not real, it's all an illusion with puppets and fake cheers.

I learned that coercion is not the only way. That only in a Voluntary society will we be truly free..

So, no I won't vote for Rand, not just because I don't agree with him on about a quarter of his platform, but because I don't believe in Government anymore. I'm moving past it.

Jesse Ventura

Needs work to get on the ballot but he would inject excitement and independence into the mix. You know he would get loads of media attention and he can handle the bs without fear because he is not in anyone's pocket politically. He really would be a revolutionary on the stage.

Chris Christie. Just kidding!

Chris Christie.

Just kidding! Although he would appeal to many obese people.

Jeb Bush.

Seriously, the GOP is just joking America.

Rick Perry.

Now that's not funny.

Newt Gingrich?

That is funny.

Watch Mitt Romney run again!

The GOP has been stupid, but they're not THAT stupid.

Scott Walker?

Amnesty Baby.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.
