Ron Paul’s path to victory or third party

I will not waste my vote on flip-flop Romney.

It's better to have the people you can't trust in front of you than in your camp.

If Paul and Gingrich can't block Romney,I hope Paul runs as a third party so I can vote for him.

What Now? Ron Paul’s path to victory
By Doug Wead

"Okay, Rick Santorum is out. What does it mean for the race to the GOP nomination? And what choices does the Ron Paul campaign now face?
You can help us decide. Here are some options. And you don’t have to chose just one."

1.Make an all out effort to go for it.

2.Become the anti-Romney candidate and try to gather in all of his opponents.

3.Work with Gingrich to block Romney.

4.Stay in the race but don’t antagonize the GOP leadership.

5.Seek a deal with Romney while it still matters.

6.Be prepared for a separate “Liberty Convention” in case Romney wins the nomination and shuts us out.

7.Prepare for a Third Party run.

inShare inShare0 In the wake of Sen. Rick Santorum's departure from the presidential race there are signs that some evangelical leaders are refusing to jump on board the Mitt Romney bandwagon and are turning to Congressman Ron Paul instead.

The Texas congressman spoke to several thousand people last night at the Will Rogers Auditorium in downtown Fort Worth but met quietly afterward with evangelical leaders.

Why Ron Paul? And why now, when the race is being declared "done" by the mainstream media?

"Because you don't give away your support without getting something in return," says a former congressman who has been at the heart of the Christian right movement since its beginning. The longer that Ron Paul and Newt Gingrich stay in the race, the more likely that Romney will be forced to take an evangelical conservative as his vice presidential nominee.

Why not turn to Speaker Newt Gingrich, a Catholic who is a former Southern Baptist, with views that resonate with evangelicals?

"If we had to do it over again, we should have gone with Gingrich," one of Santorum's supporters told me today. But if we switch to Gingrich now we risk another drop out."

Meanwhile, the Ron Paul campaign, with cash on hand, has begun airing television ads in Texas and launches another “moneybomb” this weekend.

"I have one question for you," one of the ministers reportedly said in the private meeting last night with Ron Paul, "Are you going to drop out? Or will you stay in all the way to Tampa?"

"I'm in," the Texan replied.

"That's all I need to know," the minister said.

The evangelical community began reaching out to Paul almost immediately after Sen. Rick Santorum dropped out of the presidential race.

Yesterday, Pastor Steven Andrew of USA Christian Ministries announced his support of the congressman, calling for a day of prayer and fasting. Andrew released a statement saying that, "After Santorum, Ron Paul is the most God-fearing presidential candidate [and] the Republican Party should endorse him." Andrew said that "If Republicans don't give a Christian candidate, Christians should look elsewhere — even to a third party."

Christian Newswire ran an article yesterday saying that Christians like the fact that Ron Paul "opposes tyranny, would cut the deficit and is prolife."

A prominent television evangelist, speaking on the promise of anonymity, says that there was great disappointment in Rick Santorum's withdrawal from the race. "No one faults a man for being a good father, and dropping out to take care of a child, but it hurts many of us very deeply. We were counting on him to lead our cause."

Wyoming businessman Foster Friess, who was a major contributor to the Santorum super PAC, has publicly said he will now help Mitt Romney.

Meanwhile, evangelical leaders are skeptical of any of their brethren who are now pledging to Romney. A Gingrich supporter who is quite vocal about his disappointment with the Santorum campaign suspects that evangelical leaders who supported Santorum, did so in return for donations to their nonprofit organizations. "They will now try to repeat the same thing with Romney and are already in the news laying the foundation for their appeal. It is appalling."

But the rank and file evangelicals are not for sale and many seeking an end to the corruption in Washington see Ron Paul, a born again Christian, as their best voice of protest and the best way to force
Romney to deal with them.

Steve Scheffler, president of the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition and a GOP national committeeman, is dumbfounded that the Romney’s campaign had so far made no effort to reach out to evangelicals.

"The presidential race is likely to be truly competitive . . . in about a dozen states, including Iowa, and the Republicans will need to motivate people to volunteer at calling centers and put up signs. I don’t think there’s much room for error,” Scheffler said,

Meanwhile, the Ron Paul people continue to fill the vacuum. In Iowa they are helping Scheffler and other Santorum people get re-elected to their positions. They can afford to be generous. They have everything else.

Says Brian Jacobs, a former consultant to Billy Graham and to evangelical leaders such as Kenneth Copeland, "Ron Paul is a born again Christian who is untainted by this corruption that has engulfed Washington. It should be no big surprise that evangelicals are discovering him.”

Might it be Good for all of us & for Francis to Read about the "Gruesome Death of Arius"?

  I have read the letters of your piety , in which you have requested me to make known to you the events of my times relating to myself, and to give an account of that most impious heresy of the Arians , in consequence of which I have endured these sufferings, and also of the manner of the death of Arius . With two out of your three demands I have readily undertaken to comply, and have sent to your Godliness what I wrote to the Monks; from which you will be able to learn my own history as well as that of the heresy . But with respect to the other matter, I mean the death, I debated with myself for a long time, fearing lest any one should suppose that I was exulting in the death of that man. But yet, since a disputation which has taken place among you concerning the heresy , has issued in this question, whether Arius died after previously communicating with the Church ; I therefore was necessarily desirous of giving an account of his death, as thinking that the question woul
