I hear your enthusiasm. I feel your idealism...

and your wrath as well.

Ron Paul is a lame duck. He has two months left to be a Congressman for the State of Texas. If he wanted us to vote for him, he would have changed party and become a libertarian when that window of opportunity was open earlier this year. He opted not to do that. He is going to finish out his term in office and then become a private citizen. Like you, writing in Ron Paul does appeal to my idealism, but my pragmatism and realism have won out over my idealism for Ron Paul.

I believe that Ron Paul will either vote for himself as a write-in, like you did, or he will vote for Gary Johnson. At least I have increased my odds of being 50% correct.
