Convince Ron Paul To Make A Third Party Run

While it is a little known fact, there is currently an on-going effort to convince Ron Paul to make a third party run for the White House. A petition drive online is attempting to show Dr. Paul that there are enough Americans who want an alternative to the clones of Party A and Party B. (Click here to view the petition and/or sign it.)

In recent weeks Dr. Paul has been dropping hints (despite what the media have claimed; according to the media Dr. Paul has dropped out of the race more time than George Foreman has retired from boxing) that he would consider a third party run for president. However, he needs to hear that there are Americans out there who want him to do just that. To many of us wish to complain about Hillary/Obama/McCain, but we don't do anything other than complain. Now is your chance. Sign the petition, email Dr. Paul's Congressional office, his campaign office, and write him a letter as well. Call his offices - let him know that you want to see him run for president.

We need an alternative. Can he win as a third party candidate? Of course! Will it be an uphill battle? Of course, the machine that controls our nation will fight such a move tooth and nail. But just because it will be hard doesn't mean that it cannot be done.

"Merger" Update

After viewing Mr. Whitaker's campaign site, I see no indication that he has "merged" with another party or parties. His campaign site has a banner link to our main site, JeffersonRepublicanParty.com - he is not ashamed of us. As Mr. Whitaker continues to support the rest of the JRP in good faith, we will reciprocate the same toward him in like fashion. We wish him all the best in the 2010 Tennessee gubernatorial election.

As far as the so-called "United Jeffersonian Party" goes, the website that indicated as going live "soon", still has not emerged.

The Jefferson Republican Party is here to stay, and we will continue in our struggle to restore government to its proper place. Our desire is to work from the bottom up - that is to start at the local level.
