Ron Paul is a Republican not a member of any other party. If he's not the nominee however I will write his name on my ballot.
That's why, unless Paul is the Republican nominee, you will function as an Obama supporter.
Hey. I am responsible for one vote. My own. I leave the consequences up to God. As for me, I WILL NOT EVER casty a vote for someone who wants more wars, less freedom and deeper debt. That means every one of them except for Ron Paul.
In fact, I could turn this around and say that you voting for Santorum, Gingrich or Romney is also a vote for the same policies that Obama supports. The Federal Reserve, the UN, international trade agreements, the IRS, one world government, authoritarian police state/loss of freedom, growth of government, etc.
It's a matter of conscience for me and I guess it is for you too.
As for people talking about Ron Paul running third party, have you ever noticed that he's never the one who brings it up but they ask him in almost every dabate or every interview?
The establishment is terrified of Ron Paul and his exposure of their failed policies.
