Defend Liberty, Draft Judge Napolitano For President In 2016
Forbes ^ | 12/04/2012 | Lawrence Hunter

Posted on 12/04/2012 11:26:02 AM PST by Bull Man

Although Ron Paul has yet to be specific about what’s next for him, it is highly unlikely he will run for president again. So then, what’s next for the Liberty Movement now that it won’t have presidential candidate Ron Paul to hug anymore?

The Movement that Ron Paul built lacks only a true and steady successor to hoist sails and steer it on its way, plugging his ears to the siren song of the Republican Establishment that would lure him onto the shoals of partisan accommodation. -snip- The next Liberty-Movement candidate, therefore, must be prepared to give the run his all, fight like a tiger to the end but also be willing, if necessary, to accept a strategic defeat to position the movement to win the next time around. This will require a long-term investment, both by the candidate and by his backers.

This is why Revolution PAC intends to organize a grass-roots campaign to draft Judge Andrew Napolitano as the Liberty Movement’s new helmsman, a man who really could win on principle in 2016 and who everyone in the Movement, and many people outside it, can rally round enthusiastically.

Next week, Revolution PAC will announce the formation of a committee to draft Napolitano—the person Ron Paul said he would choose as his running mate—to pick up Ron Paul’s mantle and run as a Republican in 2016 for President of the United States. The Committee will launch its Draft-The-Judge Campaign with a nation-wide petition drive gathering signatures to demonstrate a groundswell of support for Judge Napolitano’s candidacy.

I have no problem with the judge at all, but as far as his running mate goes, I do not want ANYONE in the GOP. I am done with that pile of crap party.

If someone such as West, Palin, Ryan, or DeMint wants my support, then they will have to leave that party.

To Hell with the GOP.

Me too! I had to re-read it 3x, to make sure that it wasn’t Fat Sis.

Hells bells, I’d vote for The Judge & Paul Ryan.

And the GOPe is going to allow someone with conservative principles to gain traction leading up to 2016?

Not on your life.

It’s third party or nothing.

He’s too honest. The New Amerika will only elect crooks and sexual deviants.

Never going to happen. Napolitano would tell the truth about the Fed and the national debt, and the coming crash of entitlements. Anyone who tells the truth cannot get elected President in this country.

It is too late for that. There will not be a 2016. Sometime between now and 2015, there will be a movemet to allow obama a third term and if the Republican Party runs a candidate, it will be someone the Democrat Party, a/k/a the media approves. Recall 2008 and 2012? The Democrat Party perfected how to steal elections in 2012. This will be further demonestrated in 2014. Even so called free elections are a thing of the past in the United States.

And Stuart Varney for Secretary of the Treasury.

I can’t stand Fox News and its army of idiot pundits, but these are two guys I respect.

He’d make American Conservatives happy as long as the Republicrat Party has nothing to do with it!
