Monday Open Thread: Questions For Ron Paul Supportersby Doug Mataconis
The posts about Ron Paul’s campaign have brought numerous visitors and comments to The Liberty Papers over the past several months. Some have accused some of is, me in particular, of being overly negative about Paul’s campaign. The truth is, I’m overly negative about the state of the GOP to the point where I doubt that it can nominate someone who thinks like Ron Paul at this point.
Nonethless, I’d like to take today’s Open Thread as an opportunity to ask the Ron Paul supporters out there some questions.
1. Other than Ron Paul, is there any Republican candidate for President currently running that you could support in either the primaries or the General Election in 2008 ? If not, what would you do on Election Day 2008 if Ron Paul fails to win the Republican nomination ?
2. If you do think he will win the nomination, how do you reconcile his current standing in the national polls, no higher than 3%, with that belief ?
3. Are you supporting any Republican candidates for office (i.e., candidates for Congress, the Senate, Governor, or local offices) other than Ron Paul ?
4. If Ron Paul doesn’t win the nomination, would you stay involved in the Republican Party
I’ll be interested to hear everyone’s responses.
