Ron Paul May Join W. B. Jones and John Hospers in the History Books, at Romney’s Expense

Written by Gary North on September 19, 2012

I’ll bet you don’t remember Walter B. Jones. I do. I’m a history buff, with a Ph.D. to prove it.

Back in 1956, a member of the Electoral College from Alabama was determined not to cast his vote for Adlai Stevenson. So he voted for Walter B. Jones, an Alabama judge. Therefore, Jones’ name is forever in the record books.

In 1972, a friend of mine was elected to the Electoral College. He voted for John Hospers, a libertarian and a professor of philosophy at the University of Southern California.  His name was Roger Lea MacBride. He was a lawyer. He even wrote a book on the Electoral College. He was also the heir of Rose Wilder Lane, the daughter of Laura Ingalls Wilder. Roger owned the rights to Little House on the Prairie. He even wrote some of the follow-up books in the series.

It’s legal. It happens every so often.

Two members of the Electoral College say they may vote for Rn Paul instead of Romney.

If the vote is close, then this will change American history.

But, so far, it’s not looking close.

  1. Oooh, I'm so rooting for Ron Paul's Revenge!

  2. Texas Chris says:

    If Ron Paul gets 2 electoral votes, and Romney loses by 1 or 2, the Ron Paul revolution will be violently purged from the Republican party. That will be bad in the short term, but in the long run could very well spawn the needed 3rd party.

  3. adamenochnoah says:

    Don't worry, the purging has already happened, & we are not going to be voting for Obama or Oromney…

  4. We're faced with the establishment of a marxist state in place of our Representative Republic and you're planning to make sure we get communism? There won't be any more elections, so what good is your 3rd party?

  5. So what good is preserving an election when the "choices" are forced down your throat? Continuing to pay the ransom in their good cop bad cop game is not going to fix anything. To fix it may actually involve – gasp – an inconvenience like suffering the temporary consequences of no long participating in their charade.

  6. why should he be purged more than half of those that claim to be republican are actually democrats why are they not purged they still vote democrat like mccain, mcconell , graham brown snow
