20,000+ Supporters to Ron Paul: Please Run as an Independent or Libertarian!

88 Responses




Dear Ron Paul,

You are at the right place and at the right time not only to educate Americans about the principles of personal liberty, sound money, free markets and a sensible pro-America foreign policy, but also to continue the Revolution and lead us to victory.

We the undersigned don’t want to change the GOP — we want to change America. We pledge to “write in” your name on the presidential ballot this November 6th no matter what happens until then. Please consider quitting the GOP and officially announcing your candidacy as an Independent. We pledge to assist you in every way we can.

Sincerely,

The Undersigned

Processing your request, Please wait....

    Unless somehow you feel you can do better, or that you’re NOT invited by Romney as a team member (fat chance), PLEASE run on the libertarian ticket….worst case scenario, it doesn’t affect where you’re at now. I’ve tried to push for you for years & people are finally starting to wake up. I will not vote for lesser of 2 evils anymore. If you don’t run I’m just sending a message by voting Ralph Nader or ANY independent not in the nazi or communist party, but I WILL NOT VOTE manchurian candidate ROMNEY OR illegal imposter communist OBAMA. How bout a Ron Paul & Rand Paul father & son ticket???
    CHUCK MISSLER on your cabinet OR running mate??? (Have you ever seen that guy’s resume on govt, business, world & ministry?)
    Alex Jones???? Jesse Ventura?
    Palin??? Reza Safa an ex-Shiite Iranian moslem (now christian) as advisor?? http://www.rezasafa.com

    Any person here not promoting a write in or 3rd party run is a troll. Why else would someone post comments like “you are throwing your vote away”? Because ..many comments here stink of coming from paid goons, meaning they are afraid of Ron. This campaign needs to grow some balls and realize that a write in is possible. A sneak attack of supporters at polling stations with “Write in for Ron” would do…I think the numbers are there if he can stand up an keep running. He owes it to us. This election will probably be the most important thing in our lives…We have too much riding on this..It is too big to fail.

    I don’t get it? Ron Paul is either right or wrong. If the country is really in trouble, how can I throw away my vote? I figure my vote is more important now.

    If Obama wins, will there even be a 2016 election?

    I wanted Ron Paul, but am not just going to abandon my country to make a point. Romney is not a perfect candidate and I hate making the “lessor of two evil” argument, but it’s more than that. This really comes down to, is it over? If you really think the US will fall and your last, final message is hey I will vote for Ron Paul, then maybe you don’t get it.

    It sounds to me like you have given up.

    I wanted Ron Paul, did not get him, so I got my name on the ballot in my district for committeeman and will work to support candidates that share Ron Paul values. Stop feeling sorry for yourself, and get out there and do something.

    Fellow Libertarians, don’t punish our children by allowing Obama to rule over us and destroy the constitution for another 4 years.

      Columnist Andrew McCarthy gives us what probably is the most important question regarding the upcoming presidential election: appointments to the Supreme Court.

      “If Mitt wins the nomination, I will enthusiastically support his candidacy”. For my friends who have hesitation on that score, I’d just ask you to keep these things in mind:

      1. Justice Scalia just turned 78

      2. Justice Kennedy will t
      urn 78 later this year

      3. Justice Breyer will be 76 in August

      4. Justice Ginsburg turned 81 about a week ago. In addition, Justice Ginsburg has Pancreatic Cancer.

      5. Justice Stephens has already said he would retire and is just waiting for Obama to be reelected.

      The next president could appoint as many as 5 new Justices over the next 4 years, or over the next 8 years if a new President gets a second term. This election is about much more than the ObamaCare Tax.

      Whomever we elect as president in November is almost certainly going to choose at least one new member of the Supreme Court, in addition to hundreds of other life-tenured federal judges, all of whom will be making momentous decisions about our lives for decades to come.”

      If you don’t think it matters whether the guy making those calls is Mitt Romney or Barack Obama, THINK AGAIN.

      So for anybody who is thinking of not voting because your favorite didn’t get nominated, or writing in a candidate who can’t win, imagine this:

      SUPREME COURT JUSTICE ERIC HOLDER???

    Help Gary Johnson get into national debates instead of wasting your times on a dead end. You have compromised our principles by deciding to go after write-in. The establishment loves what you are up to. You might as well go vote Obama or Romney.

    We knocked three sponsors of the Presidential Debate Commission off. We have seven more to go. Help us help Dr. Paul.

    By writing in Ron Paul, you will in take a moral hazard and halt the growth of the liberty movement that he created. Vote for Gary Johnson. Listen to Doug Wead. For the sake of Ron Paul, at least find out about Gary Johnson’s track record. He was a Ron Paul Governor of New Mexico.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, the WRITE-IN RON PAUL CAMPAGNE is in first line not to win this election cicle, because of the VOTING FRAUD MACHINES! Its rigged and everybody knows it. Whats really matter is TO SPREAD THE MESSAGE OF FREEDOM-LIBERTY MOVEMENT and TO BECOME THE TENT. Through this WRITE-IN CAMPAGNE you”ll become stronger in order to TAKE-OVER THE REP. PARTY. This is the REAL GOAL, or should be, otherwise America will become a GULAG like it was in East Europe. THEY allready have the laws ( NDAA; PATRIOT ACT; etc. ) to do this. I”ve allready expiereced this, i”m talking to you to not make the mistake to get involved in other issues like: GJ;OBAMA;ROMNEY;DEBATES, nothing matters now other than WRITE-IN CAMPAGNE.

    Sincerly yours

      Disagree with your ending. GJ is on 47 states ballots. His votes show votes for the liberty movement and Dr. Paul. If you want to vote Ron Paul, you might as well stay home. Our national delegates’ votes weren’t announced in Tampa; do you think it will be even taken to account on national ballots?! Don’t fool me.

    I don’t know if it’s Horse Play or not? All I know is there were several Ivey’s on the list and I couldn’t find the name searching the list using edit/find on this page. I tried in all four blocks of signatures. I think there may be a lot more serious minded individuals nation wide than on this list? The Committee to Restore The Constitution almost pulled the carpet out from under the FED in the early 80′s! Find it in Archibald E Roberts’ book “The Most Secret Science”!
    It contains a blueprint for the solution to all of our problems with the FED!
    Your State, County, and City Governments can make the Federal Government
    do their bidding! That is the real answer! They can prohibit payments to the
    Federal Income Tax and make our elected officials do what they are supposed to do! Those are the channels to Fire a few of the ones that don’t want to work!
    You have to get the Morons and Idiots attention! It sure seems funny that the amount of all the bailouts is the exact same figure as the National Debt? What
    kind of a shell game are they playing? During the Clinton years the FED
    actually forgave some of the National debt. We’ve won two or three WARS in the Middle East! Where is the pay for that? The FED funded it out of Thin Air
    so I think it only fitting and proper that We The People pay them back the same way! When are We The People going to get smart enough to reduce the interest we pay the FED the same way they adjust our interest rates on savings to NOTHING? We The People pay them a constant and never ending FIXED 6%
    on the National Debt. This is a Two Way Street! They have fixed their own interest at 0 to .01%! Says We The People! They did it to themsleves by setting our interest rates! Put it to a vote of the people! Bring it up on the local level in every State! Vote them out of here! Ron Paul can lead the way!

    This is a big bad joke, because of the names on the signature list. So you people have to get serious about the issues. You are developing technology for misuse, I thought people were more serious and honest, I thought there would be true hope and truth among at least half of the population. Be serious, don’t make people waste time and resources.

    How many of the long list of public personalities are real? shal one go around pinching people’s skin or something like that?

    Hey I just wanted to gloat – I got my absentee ballots and wrote in Ron Paul.
    I just voted for Ron Paul and I’m proud!
    Only bummer – I forgot to scan my ballot and post it all over the social nets.
    It is so much better to vote for someone who you actually believe in,based on principles and policies , instead of voting for R or D, jerk#1 and jerk#2 just because of some b-s fallacy based on “they have a chance”.
    We will never end the bi-partisan singularity if we keep voting for one of the lesser 2 evils.
    And contrary to popular belief, if enough people vote for your candidat – then he has a chance too! Regardless of which party.
    It is our only way out of imho, and not only that , you feel so much better and are actually proud of how you voted.
    Voting dem or rep leaves such a bitter taste in your mouth…

    Dear Dr. Ron Paul,

    Many of us would follow you; right off a cliff if need be. You are the leader we have hoped and prayed for, for a VERY long time and we all have a lot of love and deep respect for you and what you have tried to do here.

    Once again the media has turned what should have been a true solemn turning point of our nations history into another boxing match between their two chosen candidates. To many of us, the media silence regarding you was telling. They want the American people to believe they have no choice; and it has already worked on many, as they have lost hope for (TRUE) change.
    The media did not want us to hear what you had to say. Your ideas were dangerous to their everyday workings. You threaten to expose too much. Understand this, lest we forget these are the same individuals who brought us JFK’s “wild ride” through Dallas Texas, 9/11, and dozens of other autrocities to frighten the average American into submission (too include our recent assasination of Ambassodor Chris Stevens) in their quests to maintain power.

    You are our fearless leader, many of us would follow you anywhere.

    Unfortunately a country gets the leaders they deserve… I cannot beleive we deserve another 4 years of Obama; so unless you run as a Libertarian, the only recourse is for us to put on our “sheeps clothing” and vote for Mr. Romney.
    It is imperative that we not risk Obama through the division in the Republican party.

    But say the word Dr. Paul, and we wolves will drop wool and come out.
    We will wait for you, Sir.

    Scincerely,
    a pro-life, environmetalist, prior-military, over taxed & dollar stretching, inflated student loan paying, given up on dreams of ever home owning, American manufacturing, averge middle aged Anglo-Saxxon, God fearing, Ron Paul preaching,
    Libertarian
    (who registered Republican just to vote for you)

    PS.
    If the Republican party didnt want you, we still do; their loss, they just dont know it yet.
    Now do what we Texans are raised to do. Dust your self off and get back in there —- COWBOY UP!!

      Way to show support there chief. So you support Ron Paul untill they cheat him and then you join in the kicking while hes down? Nice. So if you are not for us, you must be against us…. you have played right into their hands; thats your submission to the liberty movement. Friends like you, who needs enemies?

    I’m glad that this website is back on the “air.”

    Those who attempt to dismiss WRITING IN “Dr. Ron Paul,” because of various reasons, supposed “Illegality” being chief among them, simply don’t “get it.” This is about AWARENESS, good folks, not about who counts the votes, or even about whether the votes count at all!

    Congressman Dr. Ron Paul himself, has said (I’m paraphrasing him, here), that no standing army can stop an idea whose time has come. I plan to write in Dr. Ron Paul’s name on Tuesday, November 6th of this year, 2012, and I am so glad to read posts on this website (and on any other website and anywhere else) where people stated that they already have done so on their absentee ballots (thanks to karen oneil and husband!). Please just make sure to document it with your cell phones or other device!

    Please let us all choose to RESTORE AMERICA NOW! Please let us all choose to VOTE FOR CONGRESSMAN DOCTOR RON PAUL FOR PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, on Tuesday, November 6th, 2012! Even if we have to WRITE HIS NAME IN! For the sake of our country. For the sake of our world.

    This is stupid. I have been a big time Ron Paul supporter for years. However, this accomplishes nothing. He is not running. There is no time to get on the ballots and writing him in does nothing. He cannot win and a few trivial votes won’t change anything.

    You want to continue this revolution, then you need to support Gary Johnson. If could get his name in the spotlight, get in the debates, he would have a real chance of carrying on the torch of liberty. That would be a far better message than a few thousand votes for Paul that won’t even get mentioned in the results. And who knows, Johnson might win if he gets a fair shot at the debates.

    There goes 20,000 votes that could have gone to Gary Johnson to tell the Republican Party that there ARE people out there who want liberty. Instead they will go in the trash. A vote for Gary Johnson won’t get him the victory, but it will show up in the count as people who want freedom as opposed to the write ins for Ron Paul that just won’t show up at all.

    Ron Paul supporters, don’t black yourselves out, vote for Libertarians to send a message to the two parties that you are willing to vote, just not for them.

    I want to write in a vote for Ron Paul for U.S. President in this year’s general election, but Utah won’t count such a vote unless Dr. Paul registers as an official write-in candidate here. I’ve tried to contact his official campaign twice about this matter, but I haven’t managed to get a response yet.

    Not going to happen people.

    Even posting this and giving the write in crowd any glimpse of hope that this “write in” method is mathematically possible will work is ridiculous and harmful to the Liberty movement that has shifted to supporting Gary Johnson. Even if he does do this, it’s to late to form a party and get registered to be on the ballots, much less participate in the debates.

    Scott above is right, Ron Paul would never jeopardize losing his Republican seat after he has fought so hard to gain ground and a voice within the GOP. Running on, or even showing support for a 3rd party candidate would cost him his position.

    The GOP party would love nothing more than to kick Ron Paul out all together. But he needs to remain in the GOP to help his son and other liberty minded politicians bring legislation to the table that will gain support from the GOP and actually make its way to a reasonable vote, but this can only happen if he is on the R team. It’s a duopoly in congress and you have to play their game by their rules, and Ron Paul figured that out a long time ago. It’s a noble mission, and it means that sometimes you have to compromise so you can stay on the team.

    He has shown us the way, it’s up to us to carry the torch.

    the state of Illinois gives me no options, I am unable to write in Ron Paul in my state because of its ridiculous “sore loser law” which states that I am unable to vote for any candidate who lost the primary. I now have no choice, I have problems with Gary Johnson’s pro life and foreign policy. I was hoping to write in Ron Paul. I need him to run as an independent so I can vote my conscience.

    So many people are discouraged with the two party system. So many people simply do not want to chose between the lesser of two evils. An unknown factor is how many registered Democrats will write in Ron Paul. I am a registered Democrat that will be writing in Ron Paul because that is the right thing to do.

    This will not happen and I hope it doesn’t either. America is ran by the two parties, if we do not change them, we can not change America. It’s like saying I want to drive my car but don’t want to put any gas in it. If we try to change the system from the outside we will lose, we must take the gatekeepers position and change it from the inside. Ron Paul understands this and that is why he will not change parties, he is responsible for the liberty movement changing the GOP and he isn’t about to jump ship now.
