I would like to see some data on how many Ron Paul supporters didn't vote or did a write-in for Paul.
Ron Paul would have even done worse than Romney. Obama and his proagandists would have eaten him alive. The demographic tidal wave of minorities is what won this election.
Party Id D/R/I - 38/32/29
Romney Rep 93-5 Dem 7-92 Indies 50-45
You might ask the same for the Gary Johnson, evangelicals, and catholic voters .
Tidal wave? Baloney - Obama had a significant drop off in votes. 2008 was a tidal wave. The problem is exactly as this article states. The issue is who stayed home or who voted third party. I’d like to know what demographics stayed home and why and I would also like to see how much of Romney’s votes were eaten up by third party candidates.
I would like to know when we can expect more birth certificate, education records, tax info and Mormon-bashing stuff again on FR...
Conservative, Christian, male, high income/wealth/education, veteran, rural. I believe in small government, limited by constitutional restraints as our founders intended. I stayed home. Why? The slow boat to serfdom/socialism/collectivism is worse in many ways than the fast train. At least on the fast train things will fall apart quickly, and we can start over and repeat the cycle. Reagan was far from perfect (gun control/background checks, illegal amnesty, government growth, increase in federal power), Bush’s were horrible slide leftward, McCain was my limit. No more. I refuse to vote for anyone who loves big government and compromises with the socialists... Compromising my entire life has just led to a country I no longer recognize, and haven’t for years...
If you support Ron Paul did you:
1. sit out the election?
2. hope Obama would win?
3. not care if Obama or Romney won?
Also what is your opinion of Paul Ryan and other Republicans?
Thanks for nothing. as the gulags form trust me you will be in one too. You can explain to all of us how you were just being true to yourself. We won’t care and will probably never help you.
Jews sold out their own in Germany and Poland too
You don’t know me, military vet, three letter agency work, lifetime in defense in various unhealthy situations in various unhealthy parts of the world. Survivalist, networked with nuclear, biomedical community and know plans at all levels. Very well prepared and forgot more than you could ever know about how to survive anything from insurgency, nukes, engineered retrovirus, floods... If I gotta go it ain’t to the gulag, it is to the grave and I ain’t going alone...
Here is what jerkwad libertarians did in FL:
I’m a conservative, not a libertarian. Sara Palin, Ron Paul, and a couple of other potential candidates embraced Christian conservative values and I would have enthusiastically voted for them. Others like Perry were okay, and would have still got my vote. Mittens is an unrepentant socialist, based on past history. Don’t want. And no, I don’t care if he is a Mormon or a Buddhist, just values and past decisions...
I voted third party, but Romney wasn’t going to have my vote, so I don’t consider it a vote eaten up. His job was to earn my vote, and he failed. My right to vote is far too precious to be automatically given to a certain political party out of fear, it must be earned.
You can’t put a liberal in to fix a problem caused by liberalism. If someone is going to have to be held accountable for the next four years, I’d rather he be a proud liberal than a so-called conservative.
Thanks for the reply. Your answer makes sense though I don’t think Ron Paul will ever be Speaker of the House.
You’re more likely to be killed by a drunk driver or slipping in your bathtub than anything you think you’re prepared for. Idealism is only as valuable as it is practical. You, by your own choice, are no longer useful. Why are you here?
I would of liked to haven seen Paul Ryan as Speaker.
