Posted on 09/06/2008 8:49:47 PM PDT by gondramB

Speculation is that that Baldwin and Barr are stepping aside so that Paul can become the nominee of both the Constitution and Libertarian Parties The Montana Constitution Party has removed Chuck Baldwin from the ballot and is putting the ticket of Ron Paul for President and Michael Peroutka on the ballot for Vice-President.

This could really be significant in a close race. If McCain pulls ahead, its not likely to be by enough that he can afford a united 3rd party challenge.

This embarrasses me that I used to support Paul. If he knew what was really good for the country, he would step aside since the prospect of a Obama presidency would ruin this country.

Oh pshaw....

Paul’s following is the anti-war crowd.

He hurts Obama worse than McCain/Palin.

Agreed.

Ron Paul is no Perot factor that is for sure.

I know quite a few Democrats who hate Obama and would just love to vote for Ron Paul.

It also shows Paul as a liar since he said awhile back he wouldn’t run as a third party candidate.

On the other hand, there may be those that supported the other two but won’t support Paul.

If anyone votes for these interruptors now they never gave much thought to it anyway. Might as well vote for Biden.

Ron Paul doesn’t give a crap about this country. He only cares about himself. It’s all about Ron Paul. This election is going to be very close due to all the voter fraud currently being setup by the Kollege Kiddie Krusaders. Every vote McCain/Palin doesn’t get will hurt them. Paul is going to wake up on the morning of the 5th of November and listen to the goons in the MSM singing the praises of their boy, President Obama.

I used to be a Ron Paul supporter, but never agreed with his Iraq War stance, part of the reason for that support was due to Paul’s pledge not to go third party.

If he lied about that, then it’s over for Ron Paul.

How would that work if somebody was the candidate for two parties? Do they just combine the vote totals from each party? Or do the parties merge and present one name on the ticket? Talk about the butterfly ballot being confusing, imagine those poor old folks when they see the same guy’s name twice on the same ballot, LOL!

Ron Paul is a crazy old man. Nothin’ wrong with that, but he has no place on the ballot or meddling with the future of this great nation. Anyone who would vote for Paul and throw away a vote and therefore give it to Obama to “prove a point” does not love our country. Those individuals would be more accurately described as Obama-enablers.

It was over for Paul last Wednesday night, when the Barracuda was unleashed.

Yeah, I don’t care. I bet he gets about less than half a percent of the vote. Big whoop. McCain is going to be ahead by a good 5%.

If Paul does this then he lied when at a debate last year he said he has always endorsed the GOP nominee and implied he would do so again.

The only major announcement Ron Paul could make is how he’s going to return all those bedsheets hanging from overpasses.

They are trying to meet the magic number so that they qualify for matching government funds in four years. If they get the 8% of the total electorate then I’d bet 3/4 of it comes from the lunatic left.

I disagree. I think you underestimate the libertarian wing in the GOP.

Then again, in the words of that great poet and philosopher William Joel:

You may be wrong,
But for all I know,
You may be right

This libertarian leaning conservative is firmly in McCain’s corner after his nomination of Sarah Palin. Now, if he hadn’t nominated her, it would have been a different story for a lot of us.

Mark my words, McCain-Palin will win in a landslide. Obama won’t win more than 10 states.

It won’t be close enough for a third party to make a difference.

Heh JV! How have you been my FRiend? Thanks for the ping. Yes, I got a good laugh.

If Paul does not join the race, maybe he has written and delivered an official declaration of surrender to al Qaeda and he plans on telling the American public Obama has accepted our surrender.

Over in the sense that is Campaign was based specifically on his character, if he crawfishes on that, what is left other then a odd Congressmen from TX?

I’d hoped McCain/Palin wins, and Paul formed a new guerilla wing of the Republican Party, one that is Ultra Conservative and would have enough credibility to challenge some of the DC shenanigans.

“Vote for Ron Paul, because the delusional deserve representation too!”

Oh wait, I forgot about the Democratic party, never mind, there is now officially no reason to vote for Ron Paul.

Doesn't he have a house seat in Texas, wonder how his constituents feel about this?

Yea, you don't want to split up that third party vote.

If the Libertarians throw this election to Obama, they won't be getting the country running to them in the next election like the dream.

So there is a possibility of Paul reneging and running third party. And let's don't forget Nader.

Can this get any crazier???
