that he has no desire to seek the LP nomination.
In contrast, Ron Paul is seeking the Republican Party nomination and
as far as I know he would appreciate all the endorsements he can get
from Republican organizations, especially libertarian-leaning ones.

not know the legalities but on the state ballot in

There’s no real need to change the bylaws since it’s easy enough to motion to suspend the rules.
If Ron is still very much in the race when our convention is held in May 2008, I’m prepared to support NOTA, and making a motion for a Ron Paul endorsement.
- The LP is not willing to roll over & play dead.

- Has the RLC endorsed Ron yet or not?
