Forget about Ron Paul's Chances of Being a Third Party Candidate via Americans Elect

The online organization is completely controlled by elitist, interventionists.

America Elect, as Irregular Times points out. is supposed to be neutral:
Americans Elect has a neutrality policy for itself as a collectivity and for its directors, officers and paid staff.
Does Americans Elect support any candidate?
No. Americans Elect, its directors, officers, and paid staff do not and will not support or oppose any particular candidate…
Rule 10.0 Free Speech and Neutrality. Until the Americans Elect ticket has been selected by majority vote of participating Delegates in the Nominating Round of voting, Americans Elect shall be neutral with respect to all candidates and shall not endorse, oppose, advance, or advocate any particular Candidate.
But the elitists may have other plans. More from Irregular Times (my bold):

Americans Elect Campus Director Nick Troiano, April 3:

Comcast News’ Robert Traynham: I assume you want experience as well. Right?

Americans Elect Campus Director Nick Troiano: Sure, absolutely. And there are many people experienced in politics.

Traynham: Name one.

Troiano: I mean, we’re looking at, look at Olympia Snowe, for example. She has served several terms in the Senate. Joe Lieberman. Jon Huntsman’s a former governor. On both sides of the aisle we are seeing people...
 Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild, Americans Elect Director, February 9
Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild: Hillary Clinton believed in a strong America.
Neil Cavuto: Would you want her on your ticket?
de Rothschild: I would want her as President any day of the week!
Mark McKinnon, who was formerly listed as part of Americans Elect “Leadership” and now is noted as part of their Board of Advisors, tweeted the following on April 3:
Mark McKinnon goes all out for Americans Elect and Buddy Roemer with Lawrence Lessig as VP
See those two Retweet icons over on the right-hand side? They’re the accounts of Buddy Roemer himself and of Taunton Melville, Roemer’s campaign treasurer. Get the Roemer-Lessig bumper stickers ready.


  1. So you've got a varied group of folks that are affiliated with Americans Elect mentioning a varied group of people, but not the same single person over and over again. And all in response to questions on who they'd consider folks that could be elected via Americans Elect, save the Twitter post, but that could have been a response to a question as well. And just because Ron Paul isn't mentioned, this is news? Also, FYI, I voted for Paul in the Republican primaries.

    And it also cracks me up that book-ending your post on the top is an ad for a Democratic governor's campaign, and the bottom ad is for some wacky money making guide.

    1. The "varied" group of advisers of the American Elect Board of Advisers is filled with persons who have made names for themselves in the name of the military, medical, psychiatric, and educational industrial complex. This is the hedged bet of the establishment. A bunch of hard core central planners if there ever was one:

      Go sell gullible someplace else. And I don't believe you ever voted RP.

    2. @Potty
      It cracks me up that you have had a blogger account all of 2 minutes before posting this crap.

  2. Hm... John "Death Squads" Negroponte is on the Americans Elect board of advisors.

  3. I think this is a reaction by the elites to the low voter turnout and frustration by the American people about both parties. This is an attempt to trick us into thinking we have a say in the matter again, while the elites get the shill they want.

  4. Here is an idea, get Paul the Republican nomination and push some nutty liberal on the Americas Elect ticket to divide the Democrat vote.
