"At this time Ron as absolutely no chance of winning...it is currently between Obama and McCain....and Obama is now slightly ahead. A vote for Ron would not only be a wasted vote, but it might as well be a vote for Obama. Instead of calling me and asking me to vote for Ron, please call all of your supporters and ask them to vote for McCain. Ron sides more with McCain than with Obama and by asking the supporters to vote for him at this point is going to hurt the country".
...and obviously it did....I have to wonder if the outcome would have been different if all that voted for Ron had voted for McCain.
Well, the very fact that McCain lost because of all the people that voted for Paul or some other third party or just stayed home should tell you something about how wasted YOUR vote for McCain really was. Not because he lost, but because people are so tired of trusting in a party that talks out of both sides of it's mouth and is, when it comes right down to it, is as bad as the Democrats.
If I had to make the same choice again, I would vote for Paul again
List? Well, let me just say regions. I've never lived there, but from what I know the Western Mountain States would be real American (New Mexico and even Colorado is starting to go downhill with all the sewage that is moving out there from Mexico, the Northeast and Kalifornia). The Southern States (avoid South Florida and any of the big cities like Houston, Austin, Dallas, Atlanta, New Orleans, etc.) and....Alaska. Avoid the Northeast, Midwest and, as you know, Left Coast. A better list would be to look at the election map of 2000. Avoid blue states and counties. Seek red ones
