More than once since expressing my support for Ron Paul have I been asked the question of who I am going to vote for when Ron Paul doesn’t garner the Republican nomination.
And more than once have I declined to answer. Ron Paul is not out of this race yet, and he has outlasted several candidates who were much bigger media darlings than Ron Paul will ever be.
The fact of the matter is, I don’t know if Dr. Paul can win this or not. This is the first ever election I’ve ever cared about to any appreciable extent, and it seems like every day I’m learning something new about how things work.
What I do know is that Ron Paul is not going to win if his supporters give up hope, concede to his opposition, and cast their lots with one of those other guys — McCain, Huckabee, or Romney. To my fellow Paul supporters, I encourage you to do what you can to get Paul the nomination and to win the election in November. Don’t lose heart at what our critics may say! And if you really want to make a positive impact for his campaign, I encourage you to sign up as a precinct leader in your community, getting the word out for Ron Paul! And yes, I’m practicing what I am preaching here; I signed up today as a volunteer and am looking forward to getting started.
I’m not losing faith in Ron Paul’s ability to win this election. I believe he is exactly what this country needs right now — most notably, he is the only candidate promising to withdraw from Iraq, not to mention his desire to do away with the Internal Revenue Service and other of Big Brother’s invasive arms.
Yes, the mainstream media may not like giving a true conservative time on the air — if liberal Republicans get the nomination, what’s the point in voting Republican? — but that makes your efforts as a Ron Paul supporter so much more important. And grassroots works… Our nation was founded on it!
