Source: Paul 'Republican No More,' Not Ruling Out Third-Party Run (tonight,JayLeno)
Breitbart ^ | 9-4-12 | Tony Lee

Posted on 09/04/2012 9:12:43 PM PDT by STARWISE

*snip*

Speculation about Paul’s intentions will intensify even more because Paul will appear on NBC’s “The Tonight Show” with Jay Leno on Tuesday night to make an announcement, presumably about whether he will make a third-party run or support Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson.

Evan Cutler of Alaskans for Ron Paul told those on the conference call that he spoke at length with Paul and his wife last Friday.

Cutler said Paul told him he has not completely ruled out a third-party run. Cutler said Paul did express concerns about ballot access and the money that would be required for such a run.

According to Cutler, Paul was “no longer a Republican as of Friday,” and for Paul to get his name on the ballot in all 50 states, Paul would have to be on the Libertarian Party ticket.

Good riddance. I wish you had never been part of the party in the first place. You really f’d up the nominations.

I always figured Paul for a Perot. He is a man who could care less about how much damage he does to this country, so long as he gets his 15 minutes. Wonder what Obama has promised him?

Paul is a senile douchebag. I used to have grudging respect for him, until his shameful Bradley-Manning-is-an-American-hero and Muslims-are-peaceful-unless-provoked-by-American-imperialism speech in Tampa. Gary Johnson is a phony “libertarian” who wants Obama to IMPOSE “gay marriage” on the states (so much for the 10th Amendment). HOWEVER....Romney’s cabal made a BIG mistake in changing the RNC rules from 5 to 8 states to put Paul on the ballot. It would likely have defused his massive ego enough to keep him away from Johnson, and would have added some needed drama to a horribly boring convention.

You mean he threatened the coronation. Ron Paul had absolutely no effect on the primary battle outside of Iowa for a week or so before Santorum shot up.

ABSOLUTELY! He’s a selfish, self-indulgent, whining, obsessive, one horse pony.

God help us .. and he’d probably take great pleasure in screwing up everything, splitting the votes .. and oh, by the way, the hell with his dear son’s future in the pubbie party, unless he’s part of this shameless conspiracy, too.

Good. At least he is out of the Party now.

Charlatan earmarks queen.

He has never proposed a solution to the Fed. He just wants to end it. He no better than Obama, all bark and no competence.

Ron Paul was always a Soros agent. He attacked the conservative Republican candidates and was used as Romney's attack dog during the debates.

Ron Paul was always working for Soros. He was always working to help get Obama reelected.

yahooo, Ron Paul is finally leaving the Republican Party.
If it were only so, I just don’t beleive him.
Ron Paul will never get the coverage in a different party that he does in the Republican Party, so will he ever leave?

I have had sympathy for some of Paul’s views but with his campaign’s attacks on Rick Santorum and word that his people were giving their passes to Code Pink people to disrupt the Republican convention, I think I’m through with him. His son might be a more mainstream, palatable presidential choice for those of the Libertarian bent.

Ron Paul is a fool. How can someone who loses a primary be able to run anyway? He should have just ran third party in the first place and maybe helped get a real conservative nominated.

God, such a dream, I hope it's true. Ron Paul on the ballot in all fifty states.. If there's anything to sink Obama faster, it's Ron Paul. War still going on, Obama risking soldiers in Afghanistan simply to remain a ‘wartime president.’ The nutroots will simply flock to Ron Paul. Oh, sure, liberal Romney will lose a few votes, mostly those who were protesting Obama’s lack of direction and effort, but Obama will lose the entire nutroots. The Code Pinkies, the Ganga Gang, they'll flock to Ron Paul and carry him high.

Shame we only have probably one of the most liberal Republicans ever to run for the White House. I mean, to the left of John McCain - that's something I never expected.

Run, Paul, run, take off with the libertarians! Scare the ever living daylights out of Obama, and push Romney to the right.

Unfortunately, this is only pipe dreams from the Ganga Gang. It will never happen. But a person can dream, right?

Well good. Whether he did it for the sake of the country or sake of his son’s future political career . . . glad to hear it. Gary Johnson who? Now to win VA with that Goode fellow. Unleash the PAC ads on him.

Then we’ll proceed to push Romney further to the right every day if he wins with Ryan’s help.

Romney and Paul partnered in their attacks on the other candidates in the GOP primary.

Then he tried to hijack the nomination process without winning delegates in the primary.

Boo hoo.

Had Paul run as a third party candidate, Baraq would have easily won with the 45% of the vote he has completely locked up already.

You may be right. I know many dems who are somewhat sympathetic to Paul, but could never vote for Romney. Still these 3rd party vanity candidicies are a boon for 0bama.

Beg to differ. Paul's supporters are more likely to vote for Obama than for Romney.

Fiscal issues are the only "conservative" issue the Paultards give a damn about. Aside from that, they are anti-war, anti-Republican and four-square for drug legalization.

Are you insinuating that its conservative to be pro-war of any sort? And if you are that much against drug legalization why dont you campaign for banning alcohol? Conservatives generally dont like big government, and in that respect Paul wasmore conservative than the entire Republican liberal party.
