...is circulating to get him to run 3rd party. Here it is. Please sign.

He or Gary Johnson are our only hope for a return to FREEDOM. If they run together we'd have it made!

The man has zero percent chance of winning, he couldn't even make second place when just Republicans were voting. The only thing him running will assure is that we get another 4 years of Obama.

oh for heavens sake give it up: what are you going to gain by keeping this nonsense going? He can not win, he will take votes away from your only hope, as you put it which is Johnson and if he agrees to allow the petition to continue he will look like a fool and damage any chance Rand has in the future...

Oh nita, it'll be a landslide for Paul. You know Romney and the 'other guy' can't beat Paul.

Ron Paul 2012 | It's NOT too late!
Cordial interview, but it is too late...
Would have been a phenomenal ticket though.
I would still have to opt for Gary Johnson at the Presidential slot - after all, Gary won
it through our Libertarian voting process, fair and square

I believe Ron Paul truly is convinced he can change the Republican party from within.
IMO I think it is a lost cause.

As others have mentioned, I think Paul suffers a bit from "minor" nepotism ...
He's very concerned about Rand's political impact in the future, of which I understand -
That's the basket Ron Paul's putting his eggs in now...

Peace
Vote Libertarian Party - Gary Johnson

Paul's effect is on younger people. 2016 will get very interesting.

Why young voters support Ron Paul AND President Obama is an enigma to me - the two are on complete opposite sides of almost every issue.
