(Roger Stone/The Stone Zone) – In 1977 as Treasurer of the National Conservative Political Action Committee, I went to Houston Texas to work in the Special Election campaign of Ron Paul, the first time he was elected to Congress. I have long admired his faith in and consistent support of the US Constitution and the proper limits of government. I have also always admired his willingness to go against the grain and sometimes tell the unpopular truth.
[Congressman] Paul was a little disingenuous when he told the Washington Post that he would decide about an independent candidacy for President after the votes are counted at the National Republican Convention in Tampa. Congressman Paul knows full well that the Libertarian Party will choose it’s likely nominee, former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson, at their May Convention in Las Vegas. The Libertarian Party nominee will be on the ballot in all 50 states as they were in 2008.
Paul has clearly committed himself to attending and participating in the Republican Party Convention in August. Americans Elect will have designated their nominee who could also very well have ballot access in 50 states by June precluding another national ballot position from the Texas Congressman. Ron Paul knows full well that an effort to achieve 50 state ballot access – or anything like it – launched after the Republican National Convention is not legally, organizationally or financially feasible.
The real question is; where will the Ron Paul vote go? – in what may be the closest election in American history.
