As this population continues to grow and build credibility, the other parties will have to take note of this "movement" and adopt some of the proposed changes that Ron Paul advocates to appeal to the evergrowing Ron Paul supporters. Quite frankly, I don't care which candidate gets elected or from what party as long as they work toward those ends. But to answer your question, that is why I believe a Ron Paul vote is not a "wasted" vote. Vote for the candidate, the only candidate, that has an economic plan to fix the quagmire that we are in, and not for a candidate that has plans to deepen it.
I totally agree with everything you say & refuse to let the "talking heads"on either side scare me into voting for a person I don't feel comfortable supporting! I have to look at myself in the morning when I'm shaving, every day!
As of this moment, unless something new an earth shattering emerges, I plan on writing Ron Paul's name in & voting for him on 11/4. I don't agree with all his positions, but Obama is just a little to new & untested for me.(maybe next election when he's got a bit more of a record, but not now) McCain is just more Bush........& we all know it! Just look around you at the economy alone! I want GW Bush's policies, thinking, advisors, cabinet, speech writers......the whole stinking lot
thrown out on their butts!
