Paul = No Vote in November

would also say of Ron Paul Ė he doesn't need to win. In his view
he is winning already. This is an ideological point he is making.
But here's why it's electorally significant Ė a lot of people, I
mean 41 percent in Virginia, only two people on the ballot, still
a lot of people voted for Ron Paul. A lot of those voters are portable.
They're not Republican Ė they're not dedicated Republican voters."
~ Tucker Carlson, Editor, The Daily Caller
It is time
for a groundswell of Ron Paul supporters to quietly, respectfully
but firmly make their position clear to the mainstream media and
the GOP establishment. Simply put, "No Paul on the ticket means
no vote for the GOP in November".
The Ron Paul
Campaign has the GOP establishment stuck between a rock and a hard
place even though they have not won a single state in the primaries
to date. Every Paul supporter knows the underhanded tactics used
by the Republican leadership at the state and national level as
well as the organized smear and news blackout campaign carried out
by the mainstream media.
For the November Election
As we move
into the last months of the GOP presidential nomination campaign,
most of the establishment media are now "making nice"
with Ron Paul and his supporters. He actually gets questions during
the debates, some press coverage and the other candidates seem friendly.
The reason is simple. The Republican Party desperately needs the
votes of Ron Paul supporters in order to win in November against
Heffernan didnít get the memo in her typical anti-Paul elitists
drivel titled Ron
Paulís Pointless Internet Presidency posted on Yahoo earlier
in the week but now this is the exception rather than standard procedure
for the press. The word has gone out to be nice and respectful to
Ron Paul so they can get our votes in November.
establishment has obviously done its homework with focus groups,
polling etc. and here is their situation. Although they have successfully
held back the Ron Paul campaign to date from threatening to win
the GOP presidential nomination, in the dirty tricks process they
have ostracized the substantial Paul voting constituency even more
from the GOP than before.
are far more than portable as suggested by Tucker Carlson, rather
they are toxic toward the GOP elites and very few will now support
any of the establishment candidates after the abusive treatment
given to Ron Paul as well as the crude attacks against Paul supporters.
I well understand these feelings of resentment, as I am a Ron Paul
supporter. There is no way I will vote for either Romney, Santorum
or Gingrich although I certainly prefer their fake rhetoric to the
Obama propaganda. If Ron Paul isnít the Republican nominee for president,
then the establishment nominee desperately needs the votes of his
supporters in order to beat Obama in the fall general election.
establishment knows the Gingrich and Santorum voters in the GOP
Presidential primary will eventually vote for Mitt Romney in November
if he wins the Republican presidential nomination at the GOP convention
beginning on August 27th, 2012. They also know and fear
that most Ron Paul supporters will not vote for the nominee and
will likely stay away from the polls in droves thus hurting the
other Republican candidates for the House and Senate as well for
state and local elections. Basically 15% of the GOP primary voters
will sit out the 2012 November election and this almost guarantees
the re-election of Barack Obama.
Donít Really Care If the Democrats or Republicans Win in November?
answer is regardless of whether Romney or Obama wins the general
election despite all the anti-Obama rhetoric by the Republican establishment,
little will change on major issues. Romneyís campaign promises are
identical to all other presidential campaign promises, much to do
about nothing. Neither Bush nor Obama kept their campaign promises
and neither will Romney.
we redouble our efforts in voting and funding the Ron Paul Campaign
up through the final primary and caucus.
in editorials, articles or discussions with the press or GOP leadership
always stress and emphasize your plans to stay at home on election
day, if a Ron or Rand Paul is not on the ticket.
at the Republican National Convention when the presidential nomination
is handed to Romney assuming he wins, we continue to stress "NO
PAUL = NO VOTE IN NOVEMBER".
then we wait at the convention for the personal phone call from
Mitt Romney following private preliminary discussions where Rand
Paul is asked to be the Vice Presidential candidate on a Romney/Paul
ticket after assurances Ron Paul will be nominated for an appropriate
cabinet level appointment such as Secretary of the Treasury or Defense.
Paul deserves some family time off following the years of campaigning
and educating the American people about liberty. He has done more
to advance the cause of limited government, liberty and free-markets
than any American since the time of the American Revolution.
Romney has spent the last 7 years running for President of the United
States so obviously he really wants to win. Romney and his advisors
must know without the 15% plus of GOP voters supporting Ron Paul
who unlike Gingrich and Santorum will sit the election out, that
he cannot defeat Barack Obama without our support. His only option
is to put a "Paul" on the ticket.
a Vice President Rand Paul is a great tactical victory, this is
only a battle in a long war for the restoration of liberty and legitimate
Constitutional government to the United States.
I was a young man in the military during the 1970ís, I well remember
the antiwar crowds shouting "Hell no, we wonít go" in
opposition to the Vietnam War. Today, 40 plus years later, Iím a
grandfather and maybe older and wiser but still willing to more
respectfully tell the same power elites running this country and
both political parties, "Hell no, I wonít go" again but
this time it is to the polls in November unless there is a Paul
on the ticket.
