Ron Paul First GOP Candidate to Appear on Ballot in All 50 States

Good news. I hope he stays in even if he isn't the eventual nominee gives us someone worth voting for.

If you don't have enough voters to get support for yourself, it doesn't matter if you are first or tenth to be on the ballots of all 50 states.

Don't believe the media. I can say that over and over but it won't make much difference. There are those that know the truth and those that just don't care enough to find out the truth.

I think it is probably more important to win a few than just to appear on all ballots. You can believe what you want, you can reject what the media says, but you certainly can't close your eyes to the fact: he isn't going to be the nominee..

Whether or not he will be the nominee is too soon to call.

Just look at Santurom, the man with no organization, no money and yet, is the running up according to the media.

The point here is no one is the nominee yet. There still 4 people in the race. Soon to be three when Gingrich dropped out.

Don't forget that Cali and Texas combined of 327 delegates, and they are at the very end. Unless Romney can secure the nominee before that, then the race is on.

Either they are staying in because they know with just Romney and Paul, to pull from Paul or pull from Romney, as neither are gung ho, war mongering, religious nuts, willing to regulate morals.

Well you can't blame me when Obama gets his 2nd term come November I didn't vote for Romney and never will. People want a REAL alternative not more of the same. So whatever...if he isn't the nominee or not he is leading a movement either way.

Why can't we blame you?If Obama wins a second term it will be because a majority of people didn't vote for Romney.People who prefer Obama or don't have a preference between Romney and Obama have a perfect right to vote for Obama,vote third party,or stay home...but in the end all 3 groups will have contributed to an Obama win if it happens..thats just a fact.People can vote or not however they wish but its silly to deny the inevitable result of such actions.
