    Since it appears that Ron Paul supporters simply aren't going to give up on the guy until he's one day pushing up daisies, I figured I may as well contribute to the madness and ask a serious question: If it turns out that he somehow does not win the GOP nomination and does not appear on the Presidential ballot -- I realize this is crazy talk, but stick with me here -- are you going to vote anyway? And for Romney, I assume?

    Just curious.

    I've never known a paulbot to vote for anyone else. I have known them to write his name in.

    I guess that's where I'm going here. There's always the standard "anybody but the guy from the other party" voters every election cycle, but I wonder how many Paul supporters will look at Romney, stick 100% to their principles, and not vote for him.

    Well, PRINCIPLES are what distinguish LIBERTARIANS from the others who just want to win by voting for an "electable" candidate.
