Did Paul just disperse our movement into oblivion?Submitted by Boru on Wed, 09/10/2008 - 13:43
I don't know if all the Barr-hate is organized or not, but it sure is convenient.
The Revolution was an unrelenting monster headed toward DC, but once the path got narrow enough, Paul threw up his hands and said "You shall not pass!" and cast our energies down into the oblivion of pinning our hopes on third parties? With absolutely no actions for Ron Paul's name to be put on any ballot?
So what if Barr wasn't there. Isn't there something more pressing? Why aren't there a dozen "WTF do we do now!" posts? Instead, we have a dozen "Grrr, Bob Barr is evil" posts. Thou protest to much about Barr, me thinks.
Is there ANY plan to put Ron Paul's name on any ballot? If RP is gunning for the LP ticket great (that would justify why Barr isn't there). If so, why bother ask us to support third parties...when we really need third parties to send all their support to Ron Paul?
