Like many other libertarians, I’m very enthused to see Gravel join the libertarian party. Like he says, the democratic party doesn’t really represent his views.

Though I don’t believe that running on the libertarian ticket will give him a chance to win, when libertarians are already so highly focused on Ron Paul’s campaign. Nevertheless, Gravel for president is our second best choice.

But unfortunately, if Ron Paul wins the nomination and Gravel is still in the race on the libertarian ticket, we couldn’t get a Paul-Gravel vote. (Or could we?)

Ron Paul may be running for the Republican presidential nomination. And he has, after all, been the Republican congressman in the House of Representatives since the 1970s. But I’m sure many people out there like myself are thinking “But he’s not like any other,” or even “I can’t believe I’m going to vote Republican!”

But as a matter of fact, Ron Paul is a libertarian. In fact, he ran for president as a Libertarian in 1988. And still today, his foremost philosophy is to uphold the Constitution, give people their liberty, and keep the government out of people’s lives.

Ron Paul says that he “has no intention” to run under the Libertarian ticket in 2008 (if he doesn’t get the Republican Nomination). But in the unfortunate case that he doesn’t win the nomination we will certainly hope he does.

I suspect that there are a lot of voters out there who are fed-up with the face of the Republican party today (I’m one of them!), but to vote for Ron Paul is not to vote for republicans – Ron Paul is for the people and he is not partisan.

One advantage of running under the Republican ticket is that if he wins, that basically eliminates all the other (real) Republican nominees from the race. However also, if he loses and runs under the Libertarian ticket instead, it is suspected that he will then take a greater part of the Democratic voters, giving the Republicans another chance.

That’s why it’s so important that Ron Paul wins the nomination. Though as much as it shouldn’t be, this is a big game, and there are big and powerful players out there pulling strings to get the Republican president that will satisfy their needs just as Bush has. It will take a tremendous amount of support (as there is!) to overwhelm the powers and bring democracy back to America.
