We must convince him to RUN FOR PRESIDENT! No more war!--no more debt! My brother and brother-in-law and myself and all my buddies are going to have to keep fighting this illegal, horrible war! Please Mr. Paul, run and fight for the country--not just your party!

Go to www.RonPaulWhitehouse.com (http://www.ronpaulwhitehouse.com/) and pledge to show your support for the most amazing statesman this country will have had for who knows how long (JUST IN CASE).


I admit, and am happy to do so: There is no reason to think we need to go iNDY until we see what happens between now and March 4th. He MIGHT start stomping McCain based on low voter turnout due to apathy since the media has 110% called it for McCain, and based on how horrible a choice McCain is and how much he is getting lambasted in on the air and in print, and at the 'watercooler'. Especially as Iraq of course continues blowing up and the economy gets worse. Here is my proof:


Thank you for your generous donation of $100.00!

Contribution received!

Thank you very much for your donation to the Ron Paul 2008 Presidential Campaign.
Your donation will allow us to expand and grow our campaign.
We depend on donors like you to help us spread the message of freedom, peace and prosperity through Ron Paul’s candidacy.
You will receive an email shortly with a confirmation number.

But after March 4th...

I'm out if in a month's time he continues to win 0 states and still has less than 15% support and yet refuses to go iNDY (I'll still write him in and spread the word, make calls, etc., but I probably won't donate anymore, and I'll be very sad).

Well, I can safely say...if donations dry up....Paul will be forced to call it quits, so please continue to DONATE.


my dad said he'd donate another 500 to Paul (IF he announces 3rd party) (he donated 200 on Dec. 16th--but that was when it seemed like he REALLY could maybe, possibly win the Nom. I would donate 500 the day he declares (even though it will hurt financially), whereas I can't afford to give anymore (I gave just over a 1,100 in Q4 to the cause--so shut up) for his Republican run; and gramps would probably wager another 1776.00

The 2nd and 3rd tier, broader-base of supporters aren't (many or most of them) going to donate MORE--if they already have once--because TO THEM it is obvious or at least nearly certain that he's not going to get the Nom from the Republican party (I'm not saying I believe that--but they DO). However, they would be very willing and enthusiastic about supporting him in an iNDEPENDENT run.

I've read it and replied elsewhere. Since this is the alternative forum, I'd just like to say this:

We STILL encourage Ron Paul via petition or something on the ronpaulwhitehouse website to go independent. It doesn't hurt to ask, as long as we don't pump tons of energy into it.

However, we only go in earnest when it becomes clearly impossible to win the GOP nomination. That is, when McCain has the 1191 delegates or more secured to take it.

Will do.

Republican party has faltered, sometimes you have to step out of the boat to save it. Besides, saving the country is more important than a party.

Ron Paul run as Independent would be a great idea imo. There is plenty of time for Ron Paul's message to spread and find more support. This will also send a strong message to Republican party and Ron Paul will remain in the news and make more news headlines, his message will stay very much alive and more Americans not happy with the choices available will gravitate towards it.

I've emailed once so far asking for an Indy run, I'm sure I'll do it again. I'm not very hopeful at this point, though. Maybe he'll run for Pres again in 2011. He'll start with a lot more name recognition, the grass roots will already be organized and have learned from this run. And we should have some other Ron Paul Republicans in Congress by then. I think he could have a real chance at winning the presidency with a second run at it in 2011.
