Proposed New Democratic Strategy: Vote for Ron Paul

Sometimes I amaze myself.  I never really thought of myself as much of a political strategist – duh! I’m a Libertarian after all.  But today – things are different. First, I re-registered as a (gritting of teeth) Republican so I can vote for Ron Paul in the primary.   Years ago I used to be a Republican – something for which I will surely go to hell – and I swore I would never do it again.  But I didn’t expect Ron Paul either – so things are different.  In case you are wondering I will change back to Libertarian instantly after I have voted for Ron Paul in the primary. BTW – In violation of the law – the BOE requires you to write it in on the “Other” line in order to register Libertarian.

So today we were out in Union Square registering people to vote in the primary and the Impeach Bush crowd (a fun group who do important work) from the Village Independant Democrats set up next to us. That’s when it hit me.

Democrats should re-register Republican to vote for Ron Paul in the primary in order to hand Rudy Giuliani a crushing defeat in his own back yard. And of course it will be that much more fun if Ron Paul is the guy that beats him because as we know, Rudy isn’t a fan of Dr. Paul’s non-interventionist foreign policy.

Think about it.

Rudy has already ready informed us he is the only Republican that can beat New York’s most hawkish Senator. Certainly not Ron Paul, a peace candidate who wants to abolish the IRS. I mean, the American people really LIKE war and taxes right? Ok then – so if Rudy isn’t the Republican nominee then Hillary will surely coast to victory next November. It’s not like Hillary will need the votes to win the New York primary.

As you might expect I am no fan of our junior Senator. But if you happen to be a pro-war, socialist you have to admit my logic is impeccable.

Rudy can’t get nominated without New York. He has assured us no other Republican can beat Hillary and America’s mayor wouldn’t lie to us, right?

So that settles it then. Democrats need to run out and change to Republican by October 12th. Then of course you have to remember to vote for Ron Paul in the primary – just to – as Miracle Max (almost) said – give Rudy a nice paper cut and rub lemon juice in it.

Have fun stormin’ the castle…..

    As much as I’d like to see a woman president, I don’t trust Hillary as far as I can throw her.

    Ron Paul is the only one who can beat Hillary.

    Well, I guess liberals are still not averse to voter fraud and rigging elections or attempting to steal elections. I guess if Republicans decided to switch to democRat and vote for Kucinich, you clowns would have a hairy fit, wouldn’t you? Hillarity will be toast by the time November of ’08 rolls around. All the Republicans have to do is tell the truth about her ideology. She’s a neo-Communist who loves Marxist doctrine. She’s trying to buy votes with promised giveaways…a democRat hallmark. Ron Paul is a ceritfiable moron who has no understanding of world affairs, as most of the posters here have proven of themselves. If you think the war on terror is a hoax, you are severely stupid and probably should be in a rest home.

    It is what all patriotic Americans need to do. Register GOP and vote for Dr. Ron Paul, if he doesn’t win than switch back to your respective parties.

    Dr. Ron Paul is the only candidate that actually honors his oath of office and desires to return true governmental accountability.

    Lanny – Thanks for your feedback. I agree the strategy may seem a bit idiotic.

    But when you look at a choice like Hillary v Rudy – can you think of a better description?

    One of the things I have marveled at with the Paul campaign is the broad political spectrum of volunteers he has attracted. It is why I have bristled when I read of Meetup groups where organizers marginalize those who don’t have the same political beliefs as them. I thought the purpose was to get Ron Paul the nomination/elected, or at least promote his ideas.

    Ron Paul has two kinds of “left wing” supporters: 1. Antiwar (and 9/11 Truth movement). While the Democratic Party has Kucinich and Gravel, neither has made it off the bottom. So much for the peace loving Democratic Party, when tragically their anti-war candidates can’t muster support. Ron Paul IS making headway, so it is worth investing time.

    2. Those who wish to hurt the GOP’s chances further by encouraging a disruptive influence in the GOP convention and debate to help the Democrat Party.

    Either way, I would accept help wherever I could get it. The mission is getting Ron Paul’s ideas out there, and getting him the nomination and the election is the gravy (IMHO).

    What?! We need to support Obama. Helping Ron Paul get the Republican nomination would be the WORST thing we could, especially if Hillaronch wins the Democrat nomination. Ron Paul would really make Hillary die, since he out-does her on the anti-war thing. Plus a lot of Democrats hate Hillary more than they would even hate Ron “I hate government” Paul.

    This article is RETARDED. Nothing would be worse than Democrats supporting wRONg Paul…

    I believe it would be a prudent strategy for Democrats to register as Republicans to back Ron Paul, as Ron Paul is real opposition, unlike the establishment Democrats.

    On the Democrat side, you have Dennis Kucinich and Mike Gravel. However, since the perception that most Democratic voters have is that just because somebody is a Democrat, they are part of the opposition to the neocon regime, Gravel and Kucinich have far less of a chance at making it through the Democratic primaries than does Ron Paul of making it through the Republican primaries.

    Ron Paul’s appeal is that he is different than the rest of the Republicans, and so Dr. Paul isolates a base of supporters, whereas the rest of the Republicans divide up the neocon vote amongst eachother. When presidential politics first started for this season, I originally believed Kucinich to have the greatest chance, and I was going to devote my time to his campaign. As time went by, I realized Ron Paul actually has the greatest chance for success, and he is the only Republican who can beat the establishment Democrat.

    Quite the idea… the best part about it is, it is a win-win situation for those who want a legitimate choice come next November.

    Many Democrats aren’t happy with the “presumptive” nominee and that is already starting to show in Iowa and N.H… the less people who turn out to support her in her own state, the better! Plus, having Ron Paul as the Republican nom is the only conceivable “good” outcome for the right side of the spectrum in this election.

    A battle between Barack Obama and Ron Paul would be one worth getting involved in… Clinton vs. Giuliani makes me want to lose what little faith I try to hold onto in regards to the political process

    Too Much Freedom – I didn’t say Ron Paul wouldn’t beat Hillary – Rudy implied it when he said he was the only one who could beat her. (besides my brilliant strategy doesn’t work if the Democrats don’t see the advantage in it – so SHHhhhhhh!)

    First I must say I enjoyed reading your post…. I don’t think you will go to hell but then again those who vote for Rudy well the people have already been warned if you watched the debates and thunder cut his mic off…

    In regards to Hillary….. She was defeated once with her HUGE health care program and she was warned to back down by the gov….. She will never pass her big lie.

    In closing… We must defeat the: Clinton-Bush-Bush-Clinton tag team match. I can tell you other nations view American’s as dumb for even letting it go on this long.

    As a GOP member I’m will be proud to call Ron Paul… President Ron Paul then maybe in can sleep better at night knowing he would himself shoot anyone who went near the button.

    I think you are seriously mistaken if you think that Ron Paul would easily be defeated by Hillary Clinton. Absolutely not. Ron Paul is the exact opposite of Hillary Rodham Clinton. If he were to go up against HIllary Rodhame Clinton, it would be a choice between a waffling, tricky, multi-millionaire contessa that supports continuing the War In Iraq to a much more honest, soft-spoken (at times—), from-the-ground-up Wsetern Constitutionalist that means well in his ideaologies. The choice is an obvious difference so stark, that most of America would have an easy time choosing a candidate, and I hope Ron Paul wins the nomination without those with your plans.

    In the war on terror, Rudy is a person of interst, as are George W. and especially Dicktor Chaney. Hillary must be in on the hoax too , given (She may be evil but she is most certainly not stupid) Else why has she not yet demanded a more thorough 9/11 investigation? Why has she not demanded the heads of the Fascists in the Whitehouse? The simple answer is that there is honor among thieves. It just wouldn’t be polite for one devil to ask for the head of another. I personally don’t care how Ron Paul defines himself, his vision for the future of America is one all but the ruling Elite should hope for. We are where we are thanks to the Clinton/Bush dynasties. God help us if we are ignorant enough to vote for more of the same. Last chance guys Ron Paul.
