View Full Version : 3rd Party Run: What do you hope to gain?

Okay I, obviously, love Ron Paul.

His stance on abortion, on debt, on money, on peace, on the death penalty, on global warming, on states rights, on how to carry a debate by focusing on the issues, etc...

But to those who advocate a third party run, what do you hope to gain? We do worse in open primaries than we do in caucuses, when it comes to a general election we will be destroyed.

The media has largely ignored us and they are going to continue to do so if we run a third party bid. Why not start saving and education for 2012?

(full disclosure: I own intrade shares and would benefit financially if RP did not make a third party bid.)
