If everyone who voted for McCain voted for Ron Paul, he might have even beaten Obama in the last election. He DEFINITELY would beat Obama and Romney this year if rather than voting for Romney, people voted for him instead. Of votes Romney gets probably only 1% are really excited about him the other 99% are all sheeple who are voting for the supposed "lesser of evils".
Unfortunately, I don't think this will matter unless we get some control and accountability in our voting.

'Obama, Romney - same police state': Third party debate up-close (FULL VIDEO) — RT
Yes. I was the one who started the thread about it the day before it took place.

Good for you, I missed your thread. There's another one this October 30, 9 ET, with the top two 3rd party contenders.

Second 2012 Presidential Debate October 30 in Washington, DC - Free & Equal
Free and Equal is wrong about the debate being so "historic". Ron Paul had one that was covered by C-Span before the last election.

It is a good thing that it is taped though. It would be nice to make it go Viral. Alex Jones is good at that. He does it by getting people to search certain keywords on the internet and with so many doing it the topic ends up being the most searched for thing. "Watch the 3rd Party Candidates debate for FREE" and including the link would be cool.

WriteinRevolution.com has the right idea as far as that goes. They have instructions at their site about how to make your write-in or 3rd party vote count. On their material they urge everyone to visit VoteFraud.org/2012htm.

They urge people to vote by absentee ballot and to make 3 copies. The original of which you'd send to your County Board of Elections Supervisor of Elections.

Then you'd download and print an affidavit from WriteInRevolution.com. Take it to a Notary and sign it after you are in front of the Notary. Then submit via email, fax oe snail mail a copy of both the ballot and affadavit to WriteInRevolution.

They say it is also a good idea to send a copy marked "copy" of your ballot again to the Board of Elections Supervisor WITH the notarized affidavit for Ron Paul or whichever 3rd party candidate you voted for. But this is optional.

If you can't vote absentee they say to take a picture of your ballot at whatever polling place you go to with a cell phone and then upload it to a computer and print it out and follow the steps above regarding who to send copies of your ballot and affidavit to.

Emily, I thought I was a hardcore Ron Paul guy.
You got me beat by a mile.


I just put my Ron Paul sign back out, after the last one got taken from my yard.
You know how hard it was to find another Ron Paul sign, now?
