In an interview with The Daily Bell, attorney and author Edwin Vieira, Jr. suggests that Congressman Ron Paul would be better off running for President as a fusion candidate of the Libertarian and Constitution Parties in 2012.
The full interview can be found here, but this is the key part about Ron Paul’s presidential prospects:
Daily Bell: How about Ron Paul?
Edwin Vieira, Jr: The Republicans will never nominate him. He is as dangerous to them as he is to the Democrats. Perhaps more so.
I hope that, after the Republicans and their lap dogs in the big media perform their usual “hatchet job” on him, Dr. Paul will run on a “fusion ticket” of the Constitution Party, the Libertarian Party, and whatever other third parties still desire their members to live in a free society. In that way, he might be able to find a place on the ballot in all or most of the States. If such a “fusion ticket” drew enough support, it would signal the impending death of the Republican Party. (And good riddance.)
Having decided not to run for re-election to Congress, Dr. Paul has nothing to lose, and can afford to go all out. And he could contribute nothing more valuable than to leave this country with a true “second” party. Then elections will become real contests between American patriots (the Whites, the traditional color of counterrevolution), and the fascist-socialist combine (the Browns and the Reds).
