Note to the "Write in" crowd

This is for all those who intend come hell or high water, by whatever means available, to write in Ron Paul's name on their ballot for president.

While I admire your steadfast adherence to principles, quite frankly you have no clue as to what the hell you are doing.

For starters, not one single vote for president or vice-president will be cast on November 4th. In fact, most likely the only people this year who WILL cast a ballot for president or vice president will be either a Republican or a Democrat, who is already pledged by law, to vote for McCain/Palin or Obama/Biden.

The people DO NOT vote for President. The Electoral College does.

If you write-in Ron Paul's name on your ballot, if you can manage, the entire ballot, including your other votes for other offices, will be thrown in the garbage. Additionally, if it were counted at all, it would be counted as a vote for RP for ELECTOR from your state. (assuming he would win a majority of the state, he would get to vote for Pres and VP in December)

But since most states require a vote for a FULL SLATE, as opposed to only one person for Elector, then the ballot will likely be tossed in the trash anyway.

I support Dr. Paul, and I wish he could be President. But barring making him Speaker of the House, and impeaching both the newly elected goons, or convincing the Electoral College to vote for him, it ain't gonna happen.

It isn't a protest. It IS a 'wasted vote' because it will be in the trash. There aren't nearly enough people who will do it, for it to even be noticed.

On top of that - RP has asked us all not to try to write him in. How about we listen to him hunh?

Democrats & Republicans Hope We all Write In Ron Paul

The Democratic and Republican Party kingpins hope we all write-in Ron Paul for President so that our refusal to vote for them will not be reported in the media and will be invisible to the American people. That is why Congressman Paul is hosting the news conference tomorrow to encourage his supporters to vote for one of four alternative Presidential candidates who will be on the ballot. He wants our votes to be reported and be very visible to everyone.

An uncounted vote for a

An uncounted vote for a principled man is infinitely more logical than a counted vote for an unprincipled man.

Fill up their trash cans

Ok, so they trash my write in vote. So what? Let's fill up their stinking trash cans! They might have to make several trips to the dumpsters, but when they're locked up in the "detention centers" for their "safety", they might begin to understand why we stuck to our principals to the end.

It is our cross to bear. Jesus knew why he was going to the cross. To die for us. He didn't compromise at the end and neither will I.

Write in Ron Paul even if it goes to its death in the trash.

Writing in Ron Paul would definitely be very satisfying

I'm voting third party. It's less "voting for lesser of evils" rather than expressing my lack of confidence and trust in our nation's future leaders. If enough people do this, others might begin to wonder why so many people see no option in voting democrat/republican this year. Maybe they'll realize how voting for a lesser of true evils is voting for an evil nonetheless, and that their options are not likely to change until the voters change their "they both suck but what can I do" type of defeatist mentality.

Writing in Ron Paul would definitely be very satisfying, but not practical, because the vote won't be counted and I won't express my dissatisfaction in voting for either candidate. It won't contribute to anything significant beyond my own self indulgence.

I'm goin got make this short

and sweet. Since people obviously still don't get it.

NO ONE IS VOTING FOR PRESIDENT IN NOVEMBER.

A write in for Paul as president is a NON VOTE. It isn't even a question on your ballot.

DO YOU GET IT NOW?

So,

JM
for whom do you intend to vote?

JM

Not Relevant

but it won't be electors for Obama or McCain.

Wait! After listening to the same crap for months, YOU and .....

.......only you have made me see the stupidity of voting for the only Presidential candidate with principle and ethics. Thank you! You alone have convinced me to vote for Obama, because I don't want to waste my vote on some guy who has never lied to me in the 20 years I have known him. Instead I will gladly vote for some guy I have never met, who changes his opinion more often than most people change thier underwear. Because Obama will win, since I voted for him it means I am a winner too.(Please get your facts straight. Dr. Paul has said that he does not encourage people to write in his name, since it does not do any good. But he does not DISCOURAGE anyone from doing so. I respect you enough to not attempt to persuade you to vote a certain way. Please give me the same courtesy.) This is not a protest topic, it is a wasted topic. Thanks anyway.

I don't support Obama OR McCain

All I'm trying to do is get people to understand that they don't understand how this process works.

If you do, and you don't care about the down ticket races/issues, and you really feel like going through the trouble of having the ballot thrown in the trash or disregarded, don't let me stop you.

The mindless "write-in" however is exactly OPPOSITE of what Dr. Paul has asked of us. But like I said, if you like exercises in guaranteed futility that actually aren't even geared in the slightest to your goals, be my guest.

just because

just because paul would be a better president than baldwin/barr/nader/mckinney, doesn't mean you should write him in.

i say vote your integrity on all available choices. otherwise, you might as well write in mickey mouse.

Write ins won't be counted. Vote third party, all lesser evils

Ex neocons, fundy extremists, global warming beleivers, and people who actually care about our enviroment (OH MY!) evil throughout the third party tickets! So don't vote.

What's wrong with voting for a lesser evil?

You're probably going to say "It's still voting for evil."

That may be true, but would you rather have more evil or less evil? The choice is clear. Not making a choice is just allowing others to decide your fate. Where is the sense in that?

Really? "Not making a choice is just allowing others to decide your fate"? .. and making a choice not yours isn't doing the same...?

As if the so-called lesser evil will somehow move us in the right direction.. as if you can even judge which is the lesser evil.. Do you think propping up a "civil national defense force" just as well funded as the military will be less evil? Even if you believe Obama's intentions are good - how will setting that up help move us in a right direction.. it could make things even worse..

If we keep voting for lesser evils then we will continue to be paddled back and forth..

Suck it

“Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost.” -John Q. Adams

Maybe you should look him up some time, while you're looking for the definition of "principled."

That would be fine if a write-in

was actually a vote. But it's not. It won't be counted or reported. It's not a vote.

Exactly

Why else would you be trolling the Daily Paul?

Do you want that I should taunt you a second time?

Hey

Votin' for the status quo is a wasted vote and don't forget it.

Besides, what makes ya think that your vote counts anyway? Can it be proven? The only way would be to follow it through all of the channels!

I won't vote for my own demise!

ah, the freedom to waste ones vote.

but thats too simple an answer.

maybe paul should of been or still should be in it to win it, so we could vote for him.

but that would be mean to say and he has fought for freedom longer then ive been alive.

maybe he should be a leader and take a stand. being more direct would be nice. he is playing the middle ground and it is frustrating.

note for you, i will do what i want this november. i suggest you do the same.
