    It is my contention that the GOP Convention is going to be 'brokered'. In other words, none of the 4 candidates will have enough delegates to win the nomination outright. The strategy of the Paul campaign has been in motion for the last 4 years, putting Paul supporters into EVERY state GOP machine and having Paul supporters elected as delegates to the state and national conventions. Should the brokered convention scenario actually occur, I believe Ron Paul will have enough delegates to take the nomination in the 2nd round of voting.

    So the question is this... If Ron Paul is the GOP nominee, will you vote for him in November?

    A fair question.

    IF Ron Paul were to get the GOP nod, the CHOICE on Election Day would come down to that between MASSIVE CLUSTERFUCK FAIL and Whack-a-doo PROBABLE Fail.

    I'd go with the less-than-certain fail.

    Yep. I'd vote for RuPaul and, if he were to win, then I'd PRAY that Congress reined-in his dumb ass.

    That answers the question

    If after a brokered convention, the guy who didn't win a single state gets the GOP nomination there would be a major puplic kickback against Paul

    If Paul outright won the GOP nomination, Obama would secure a victory

    If it appears Paul did not deserve the nomination, Republicans would stay home and both the House and Senate would go Democrat

    The one advantage I see in electing Paul over obama would be Supreme Court appointments. Yeah I'd vote for him, but with even less enthusiasm than I had when I voted for John McCain.

    UNDECIDED. A friend of mine says he WILL, to "send a message". I still may write in Truman or Ford.

    It would be more like him reigning in congress by vetoing the shit out of any bill that grows government by even one more fucking person.
