If Romney, Santorum or any other Neo Con GOP candidate gets the Republican nomination, it will be hard for a RP supporter to get their vote (unless the impossible happened and the nominee did a 360 in their politics and Dr. Paul accepted being their running mate). Even if Ron Paul does not run third party, most Ron Paul supporters will write in the good doctors name as they did in the last election or vote Gary Johnson. Being liberty minded and against war type individuals, its in our awakened nature to make this type of vote. Its the only one you can do with a good heart for future generations, the only one with truth, no dirty money behind it, and its truly one of the proudest votes you can make as a free individual. It's not a vote for a party, to try to make history, or for a particular person; a Ron Paul vote is really a message of liberty and peace. By the numbers that voted for Dr. Paul in Iowa, that message is popular. If the Republicans don't hear this message it will be a huge lost for them. Because the majority of those RP supporters in this country feel and will vote like I do.
The Republicans need to face facts that they cannot pull votes from Democrats or Independents with any other candidate then Ron Paul. The Republicans would need those votes to beat Obama, especially if he is considering Hillary as a running mate. People want someone different then the status quo. People are seeing through the bling and the celebrity to find what America is really representing out there to the world and its not freedom. If the Republicans truly want a chance for a President in the White House, they really need to concede to the paradigm shift that is not only happening in the Republican party, not only in the hearts of Americans, but by the very souls of folks around the world desiring liberty. People want something different then debt, unemployment, the destruction of individual liberty and war. The Republicans have the chance to be that difference with Ron Paul and their blowing it. I guess they still want to be a party that's bought and paid for instead of one that could really represent a free people.
