A libertarian (including Ron Paul as a LPer) has never gotten this far in national politics and has, as a result of Ron's major party campaigns, got libertarians in party apparatus all over the country. A platform has been built not only for a potential if unlikely win in 2012, but also for future candidates. This took millions of dollars and lots of sweat.
Feel free to support and vote for Gary Johnson after Tampa if we don't win. But don't try to drag Ron back into the shadows. We have worked too hard.
