Understand that I was posting it not to cast doubt on the idea of him running third party, but just on the write-in aspect. Although, if Richard Gilbert’s Lawsuit is successful, even a write-in campaign could be successful. In theory, if the lawsuit is successful, Romney could be unnominated, though this seems unlikely. Ron Paul spoke these words in 2008.

A Write-In Campaign for Ron Paul? No

Here is what Ron says: “I don’t think that’s very productive. Supporters can do it, of course, but in most of the states it won’t count. And if they can change the rules in a primary and not count all the votes, imagine what they could do with write-in votes!”

Since that was a statement released in 2008 and despite the fact that it could apply even more strictly in the complete lack of voting power due to the farce we live in today, I would not post the statement using the present time. It was very appropriate to add the date the statement, though a short elaboration of your own take on how that would apply today would have helped to better ease the statement into the current context.

Sure Ron Paul might be of the very same or similar opinion, but making assumptions on a statement that is 4 years old and was related to the notorious fraudulent elections scandals during the Bush era, would not give Dr. Paul the ability to confirm, change, or otherwise comment on what he stated back in 2008. Although he’s a man of consistent views, all assumptions are always dangerous and impolite.

That said, personally I am not of the opinion that Dr. Paul would ever be calling for a write-in (for several reasons) directly, but the prior statement he made on Jay Leno’s show would allow anyone to deduce whatever they feel most comfortable with since Dr. Paul stated that everyone should vote their conscience. Obviously as always the above it’s just my 2¢ opinion.
