Nice points - but your thesis is illogical

You said: "Of all strategies, not voting, voting against Obama, voting against Romney, voting libertarian, only the write-in methodology shows the real scope of our power. Only this proves our numbers."

That is a lovely fantasy, but "our" numbers will never be known using this strategy. Most states referenced in the dozens of misinformation posts here will only count write-ins if there are enough to make a difference. Also, even if a state is confirmed to count write-ins, about eight, those are only if the computers register the votes. Also, in those very few states that will count - those numbers will not be known for weeks, possibly months.

So, who exactly is going to "show our numbers". In some preaching to the choir website? No one will know except us and after some digging. So, what is the point?

All that said, I have no issue with anyone choosing to write-in. I never have. But, those who choose to do that are doing so, hopefully, for good reasons and because they feel obliged to do it. Fine as well. However, anyone who thinks it will show support for Ron Paul or liberty to anyone else is deluded.
