Okay, I'm bumping this.

For one thing, the GOP is patronizing the liberty movement at this point and it's annoying.

For another, polls show that Gary or Ron get between 5 and 13% in a 3-way run, so there's at LEAST a reasonable amount of support for a 3rd party effort.

Obviously Ron won't take part because he just isn't interested, though it would be nice if he said "Screw this, I'm going independent" like Lieberman successfully did.

Interestingly the last polls have shown that Democrats are increasingly intersted in 3rd party liberty candidates. Ron Paul pulls more from Democrats than Republicans and Johnson't last New Mexico poll puls 7 points from Obama, 6 from Romney. Earlier polls showed more pull from Romney, by as much as 3:1 or even 4:1.

And when the GOP is out there saying "don't give up on us!!!" what they really mean is "we're not going to change, but we want your support anyway". Same thing an abusive boyfriend says.

Yes, you can still do everything you can to take over the GOP but until that happens, for the love of God and Liberty, don't let them win.

Four more years of Obama with divide government beats the crap out of 8 years of Republican rule as we now well know - "Don't cut the military, because $900B just ISN'T enough!!!" It wasn't that long ago when the military has an enormous $300B budget.
