    My thoughts exactly what will RP do when he's left out completely from every avenue to the WH! No GOP nomination and now the Liberterian party has kicked him to the curb!! Poor RP nobody wants him!:rofl:

    GJ is tough in immigration and did good for the great state of New Mexico. He's pro gun, pro individual rights, and anti big government. His record as governor is a helluva lot better than Obamney's.

    Absolutely, if he is the candidate most likely to beat Barry. If he is tied for Romney, I'd go Gary.

    But the pragmatist in me will have to hold my nose and vote for Romney if he is the only guy that has a chance to beat Barry.

    Maybe Ron Paul can now try a 4th party run for the presidency?

    IIRC, what he's been saying is that he currently has no intention to run, but won't rule out changing his mind in the future. That leaves the door open to the possibility.

    Maybe he's updated his statement and I missed it. Any chance you have a link?

    Anybody think any Libertarian nominee will get even one million votes in November against Romney?

    Or even one electoral vote?

    What are you smoking?

    Not sure,but the answer to your question might be found in the libertarian party platform.

    I think they will.

    I think a third party run by any libertarian candidate is a serious threat to the republican party's success in November.

    Too many people are upset with the "status quo" of government in general,
    and the republicans in particular.

    They want a change, and they mistakenly believe that a third party can bring about that change.

    The only change that they'll see is Obama go full socialist on the American people in his second term.

    All brought to you by Ron Paul.

    Not always. There are a lot of different opinions out there. That is just mine.
