If Rand Paul Wins The GOP Nomination, And Jesse Ventura Runs 3rd Party What Do We Do?Submitted by zooamerica on Tue, 11/12/2013 - 22:10
Stand with Rand, that's what we should do.
I love Jesse Ventura, but I love my country more and know that he would ultimately cause the Liberty Movement to fail.
Hillary V. Paul V. Ventura
That would really suck for obvious reasons.
The conservative/libertarian vote would be divided and Hillary would win just like her husband did in 1992.

Will the GOP throw us a bone and let Rand win the nomination on purpose only to lose the national election by a plurality?
Would Jesse Ventura be stubborn enough to split the ticket?
"2016 is a long ways away."
No it's not! In political terms it's already 2014, which is only 6 weeks away. Come this time next year, the midterm elections will be finished and both parties will be in full presidential campaign mode.
If Rand wins the GOP nomination, I'm voting for him even though my vote won't matter because I live in the communist state of New York.
If Jesse Ventura gets on the ballot in all 50 states and is allowed to debate, we're screwed.
But I'm all for allowing a 3rd party candidate to debate! I don't want to be hypocritical, but I also don't want to see Hillary Clinton standing in the Oval Office.
