Obviously/Hopefully we are all going to vote for Ron. Just for fun, who would you vote for, if anyone, if Ron wasn't an option?

I can't vote (not US citizen).

I would seriously think about taking a leaf out of Brewster's Millions ('85 movie edition (h ttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brewster%27s_Millions_%281985_film%29)) and setting up a 'None of the Above' campaign. Getting the money needed would be interesting. Hey! maybe something to do with the campaign if Ron doesn't make it!

Cheers,
ErikM :D

Well before I discovered Ron Paul, I believed the media's lies about Rudy being our great leader that led us through 9/11. I wouldn't vote for him, but he was the guy I wanted to see win.

Today however, if Ron Paul were to mysteriously vanish like he never existed, but I still knew the truth about everything else like I do now, I would probably want Romney to win, but again, don't like him enough to actually vote for him, but he'd be the guy I want to see win.

I would not endorse any politician who will not uphold the Constitution and the rule of law. Therefore, I'd vote for no one.

Good hypothetical. Kucinich would get my vote this go-around.

I didn't follow politics, and when I heard that Rudy, who did "great" things for NY, was running, I figured he would be a good candidate. I watched one debate, which happened to be the one where Ron talked about blowback. That's when I researched Ron and so on and so forth

It amazes me how many people would stay home.

If Paul wasn't on the ballot I'd probably vote for the Constitution Party candidate.

I had lost hope in our country so I would not have voted.
Ron Paul and all of you gave me that hope back. :)

RP woke me up from neo-conism, so I'd probably vote for Thompson.

To be honest, if he doesn't win the primaries, I would write in his name on the ballot if I could.

I picked "3rd Party Candidate" but in reality, I would write Ron Paul in in the general elections.

I would really think about Obama (though I don't agree with a lot of his views), but the Libertarian or Constitution Party candidates would probably win out.

I would write in Cornelius Dirt Fudrucker, though I really don't want the job.:)

Jesse "The Body" Ventura is not on this list? ;P

If Ron Paul NEVER existed, I'd probably still be in apathy land, not caring or voting for anyone. ok, MAYbe I would've voted for Obama, since I wouldn't have known any better. lol

If Congressman Paul weren't running for President, I'd vote for the Constitution Party's candidate. Their political platform (http://www.constitutionparty.com/party_platform.php) is similar to my own.

OKaaaayyyyyyyyy...can we let go of this BS ???

Lighten up, we are mostly Ron Paul supporters here. I am so pissed at the disrespect
shown to Ron on places like freerepublic that I even have felt like becoming a Hillary activist just to stick to these animals. But it's all emotions and that changes from day to day. Anyway I will probably vote for Edwards if Ron doesn't get the nomination. Republicans did NOTHING while they had all three branches of government. At minimum they should have tackled education reform and school choice vouchers. If not for Ron's revolutionary ideals I would say it's time to give the dems a shot at doing nothing for six years.

this isn't "if Ron Paul loses" this is "if Ron Paul didn't exist"

just for fun, because Ron Paul does exist, and is going to win

Constitution Party candidate, that is if Ron was actually never born. Why are people saying they would vote for CFR members? It is beyond my comprehension.

How can not voting for Ron Paul be "just for fun". I don't go home and ask my family what they want to do for fun for the weekend and they reply "Lets not vote for Ron Paul, please please please can we Dad". You need to seek professional help. :)

Kucinich, Obama, or not at all.

I'd really have to do more homework on the two, if I didn't care for them then I just wouldn't vote.

Not really comfortable voting in a lesser of two evils situation.

I marked that I would not vote, but that is only half true. I would do what I did in the last presidential election - go to vote but leave the presidential portion of my ballot blank.

Heaven forbid, if Ron Paul didn't exist I would still be in favor of the neocons. My views changed for the better when i discovered Ron Paul, and, slowly but surely, I'm also converting my family.

:)

But, in all honesty, had I not known of Ron Paul I probably would have ended up voting for McCain.

It's not like it matter though, I'm only 16 and I will not be able to vote in the next election.

I've always liked the idea of the constitution party, and I was considering registering CP, but the first sentence of their preamble nipped that one in the bud.

I'd probably vote for whoever the libertarians nominated.

I'm curious as to why you disagree with the Constitution Party's first sentence in its Preamble.
