Barr & Root think they'll get the Revolution & $30 millionSubmitted by Treg on Thu, 05/29/2008 - 15:59
Barr & Root watched us in the Revolution raise over $30 million for Dr. Ron Paul. They noted that he was principled libertarian, who had a principled disagreement with the LP over abortion and the immigration issue (sort of, he never mentioned the Blue Card solution).
These two think that the Revolution will now come their way. Why? They reason that we have no where else to go.
My question to you is..... Is that true?
It seems to me that we in the Revolution have made a choice. I am now a Republican Delegate, working on the inside. It is kind of funny, we have Barr & Root two hard core conservatives working the inside of the LP while this long time libertarian works inside the Republican Party.
Nevertheless, I do not think or feel that we in the Revolution are going to get behind Barr & Root. I may be wrong on this,..... so let me know your thoughts.
Also, I was happy to see liberal Mike Gravel join the LP. I hope other liberals and progressives join the libertarian party and the movement. The more who are exposed to the principles of Life Liberty & Property and try to consistently apply them, the better.
Here is the ticket I wish to see....and perhaps we in the Revolution should just FORCE the issue. Make a money bomb for it, videos for it, posters, bumper stickers, banners...etc. Call it Monkey Wrenching the voters Paul/Ventura 2008
Think about it. It kicks butt! Ron Paul / Jesse Ventura 2008
Paul/Ventura beats hands down Obama/Hillary
Paul/Ventura beats hands down McCain/Lieberman
Paul/Ventura beats hands down Barr/Root
The down to earth integrity of both Paul & Ventura will win any General Election. We could even set up a INTERNET VOTE for the General Election. A virtual Race.... we could have all sorts of fun running with this...
You run with it too... Treg
