ELECTION STRATEGY: Plan BSubmitted by Likkerish on Sat, 10/20/2007 - 19:46
On the Digg site that references the new Ron Paul Radio Spot Fundraising campaign:
a reader asked a reasonable question.
"What are you all going to do when Ron Paul doesn't win in the primaries next year?"
I wrote the following:
There is one alternative that many people may not have considered.
Ron Paul's not winning the nomination will not be for lack of support, which would be bound to grow if all the primaries had not been manipulated to give his campaign less time to get his message out. That support is massive, even though it does not control the Republican Party machinery. It will mobilize not just behind Ron Paul, but behind those individuals in the Revolution who will run for congressional office in 2008. So, the composition of Congress could change considerably in the direction of the Liberty Movement when the new Congress is seated in January 2009.
This same support could coalesce around a "FORMAL WRITE-IN CAMPAIGN" that would target not all states, because some do not allow for write-in votes, but key states with the goal of winning electoral votes sufficient to throw the election into the House of Representatives, because no candidate gets the required majority in the Electoral College. Should this be the case, it is important to note that the new Congress seated in 2009 will make the decision regarding who wins the election.
It is important to note, also, that most states require that a write-in candidacy be formally registered before a certain deadline, otherwise the votes will not count.
BOTTOM LINE: Even though, Ron Paul would decline to run as a third party candidate, he could be drafted by the movement as a Write-In Candidate. This could make the election very interesting, indeed, don't you think? Think of the news coverage of this groundswell of support for Paul in opposition to the manipulations of the voting process by those who have hijacked the Republican Party. It would be a peaceful "V for Vendetta" type, popular uprising, the likes of which have never been seen in the history of this country!
