    The question is: Will you support the GOP nominee for POTUS yes or no.

    Was the reason for RP running on the GOP ticket just to get exposure for the Liberterian party Yes or No

    Did you ever support the GOP party Yes or No

    Would you rather have Obamamoa win a second term Yes or No
     

  2. Is this poll open to former Ronulans who have finally grown up and faced reality, or is it limited to the deluded diehards who still haven't abandoned the sinking ship?

    1) No.
    2) Don't know. Can't speak for RP.
    3) Yes. From about Jan 3, 1995 to about October 26, 2001.
    4) Against Romney, yes.

    No.

    No.

    Yes.

    It will make no difference from the standpoint of political economy, civil liberties, fiscal policy, foreign policy, scale of the federal state, etc. But if I had to answer yes/no, I would say yes.

    No. Why would i vote for a liberal big government big spender flip flopping say anything anybody wants to hear at any time gun banning health care expanding slimeball politician when there are far too many of them already?

    The reason for running was to try to win and have somebody in the office that might could do something to alter the destructive path we're on.

    Why would i support a party that would nominate mitt romney, see above

    i don't really care, the same people will be pulling the strings regardless. i'd rather tell everybody i can what is really going on right up to the end, and work against the two party system that works against me, rather than facilitate it by accepted the above described nominee

    Yes it's open anyone who supported RP at any time.

    The question is: Will you support the GOP nominee for POTUS yes or no.

    Why of course,if it's Ron Paul. And if it isn't RP

    Was the reason for RP running on the GOP ticket just to get exposure for the Liberterian party Yes or No

    No So you don't know if your canidate supports the GOP's stated goals for our country?

    Did you ever support the GOP party Yes or No

    Ron Paul is a republican Really? I'd say RHINO

    Would you rather have Obamamoa win a second term Yes or No

    No. I would much rather Paul be elected. So if he's not nominated who will you vote for?

    Gundude
    Thanks for your honest answer!

    Again no surprise

    Stubudd
    So you feel Obama is the better choice over Mitt? Or do you agree more with Obamamoa?

    I said i don't care. The same people will be pulling the strings with either one. These people that pull the strings work against me, and you, in a thousand different ways, intentional and unintentional. Even the "well-intentioned" stuff they do, like social security or 1000 other things, ultimately harm me and you in so many ways - i'm not going to work for them by supporting anything they.

    Gun to my head, romney or obama, i'd say pull the trigger.

    If you won't shoot me, i'd say whichever party has more control of congress, i'd want the other in the WH, since the best possible option is gridlock- either party will only take more and more from us if given the power to do it. That's an absolute fact. They have proven it over and over and over and over. There are no conservatives anymore. They'll take everything they can get- they'll take it all eventually.

    You're trying to talk me into voting for a yankee liberal- i'd say it's you that has the problem, not me. I want a poll of what kind of person votes for a yankee progressive when progressives are absolutely wrecking the greatest country in the history of the world. That's my poll question for you- what in the world are you thinking.

    You asked which i agree with more- i disagree with them both on almost everything possible. I disagree with using government to steal and control americans. They don't. There's not much else to say.

    1. No, not with Mitt Romney as the nominee.

    2. No, Ron Paul has been a Republican congressman for how many years?

    3. In every election I've ever voted in since old enough to vote I've always voted straight Republican.

    4. Yes if it means denying Romney (Obama's equivalent) another potential 8 years of destruction. I'd prefer Obama ONLY because it means we get a chance in another 4 years to get a real conservative instead of having to wait 8. *note-this does not mean I will actively support or vote for Obama I simply will treat Romney the same.

    Yes, anyone but O'bama!
    However, TWO RINO's in a row is getting old quick and turning blue holding my breath and my nose to vote for J.McCain and now Mitt in November,
    It's like when the doctor says,
    "son, that leg has to come off or you'll die!"
    And after being pissed off for a while, you realize that
    A wooden leg to walk on is far better than a wooden casket to sleep in.

    No. Because it will be Romney.

    No.

    Yes.

    No. But I don't think our future would be any brighter under Romney.

    1) Yes as I can accept reality.

    2) No. RP ran as a republican. RP's message is about shrinking our overly large govt, living within our means, ending some of our troublesome entangling alliances and getting back to the original intent of our Constitution which is personal liberty and prosperity. All parties should support those basic tenents of a free republic.

    3) Yes, out of necessity.

    4) No. ABO. The lesser evil as usual.

    1) Only if it is RP, not that RP as PotUS would make a difference in the long run but I will have a clear conscious.
    2) No
    3) Yes
    4) It won't make a difference in the long run.

    1. Not if I don't agree with their politics.

    2. I think he was running to try and push the GOP back to the days of non-interventionist small government pre Bush GOP, unfortunately it looks like the GOP prefers a more big government preemptive war type GOP, good luck with that.

    3. Unfortunately the GOP I want to support is the minority in the party right now. I don't look at it as supporting the GOP I don't think the neocons have a claim on the GOP they just have the majority right now. It will come back around to the non interventionist small government section of the GOP in time. I look at it as supporting small government principles when the GOP supports the same again I will support the GOP?

    4. If it comes down to Mitt and Obama I will sit back and prepare the best I can, I don't expect a huge difference just more kicking the can.
