Title: Ron Paul supporters handing out document asking backers to have Adam K. arrested

 Seriously, people? Are you kidding me? I thought Benton's shit was enough, but this goes beyond that.

 I think what really pisses me off is what they want to see happen to him. Asking him to leave just because you disagree with him is one thing, but having him arrested? They want to subject him to the same punishment that he obtained for the crime of dancing at the Jefferson memorial. Wow, guys. You know what? If that's the shit they want to play, then consider me done with the movement from here on out. I will gladly burn my voter card tomorrow, regardless if Dr. Paul wins the nomination by the grace of God or not.  

 What a bunch of bullshit.  

 Someone in the 'comment' section makes a good point. They're probably afraid that Kokesh will beat the shit out of Benton, which, honestly, I can perfectly understand.

 Come on, Seth. Doesn't this make your blood boil just a little bit? Adam has been constant in defending the good doctor, and for his supporters to treat him like this is just deplorable.

Yeah, the people around Ron Paul just really, really hate the grass roots.  Its so bizarre.  It really does make me question Ron Paul's judgement as far as whether or not he can bring himself to 'clean house' when necessary.  We could have had an amazing campaign.

But yeah, after writing Ron Paul in or whatever, go ahead and burn the voter card.  If you're here, you know that stateless solutions are the only ones worth spending time on.

It was almost inevitable. From one of the comments to the article:

Quote
The liberty Movement is not exclusive to libertarians. We have conservatives, moderates and even some liberals who are a part of this movement so of course their will be some disagreement among us...

Also, from what I read, Ron Paul 90% of the time identifies himself as a conservative and/or constitutionalist, not a libertarian.

I stopped getting incensed over politics the day I converted to anarchism.

Quite a liberating feeling isn't it.

 I don't think my state allows people to write-in names. We seem to conform to electronic voting only.

Yeah. It looks like I'm right. My state is in the red:

Writing in a candidate is more pointless than voting as a whole.

My state doesn't let me vote in primaries as an independent.

 Most states are like that. People who identify with a third party are only allowed to vote in the general Nov. election. I'm a registered Republican who wanted to have a shot at electing Dr. Paul as the nominee, but that option failed miserably.

"Writing in a candidate is more pointless than voting as a whole."

 This time is a bit of an exception, though. If every Ron Paul supporter writes in the good doctor's name in states that allow write-ins, he could pull off an event that would make Ross Perot's 1992 results look like child's play. Hell, there's still a chance that Ron could run as an independent, and that alone would suck votes from both Obama and Mittens.

It's "pointless" because oneís solitary vote, always counts for only one vote; it never does that and additionally determines the votes of others. Now if someone's vote could somehow supernaturally determine the votes of others, it would would be a different matter, for only that person; but that's a different story.

Also, Ron Paulís support nationally is some distance from the 19% Ross Perot received in 1992.
