Is Ron Paul "dead meat"?

    Ralph Deedsposted 4 years ago

    Aside from his unrealistic views on the role of the government, on the economy and the courts, the revelations of the despicable racist, anti-Semitic, homophobic views expressed in Paul's name in his newsletter should be enough to disqualify him from high public office. Even if he should win in Iowa the only possible useful purpose he could serve would be for him to run as an independent candidate thus assuring a victory for Barack Obama.

      I agree with his views on the Govt being restrained to Constitutional bounds.

      But the racist, NAZI, anti-Semitic views, are definitly a death blow.

      He will never get the nomination, nor would he ever get elected if he does get the nomination.

        How can you agree with his views of Constitutional boundaries but then say that a bunch of newsletters written 30 years ago by someone else?

        It was maybe 5 articles in a total of thousands (do we put the same standards on other news outlets?)

        Racist? Hardly. Austin NAACP leader Nelson Linder says he's "definitely not racist", but then had to make sure that his views "did not reflect the views of the NAACP". He delivered babies of all colors: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Rv0Z5SNrF4

        Anti-semitic? Give me a break. "Hey, let's quit giving billions to Israel's enemies, but also not give a few million to Israel!". If THIS is anti-semitic, then I guess I'm anti-semitic, too.

        NAZI?!!?!?!? Now you're just being foolish. Libertarian beliefs and National Socialism are 1000000% contradictory.

        I guess 4 or 5 articles 30 years ago are more important than the ONE document that founded our government some 200 years ago.

      Yes, this man is such a racist tha the president of the NAACP has said that he is "definietly not a racist". When are people gonna wake up and realize that Ron Paul is the last guy they want in the White House because he will actually RESTORE AMERICA! WAKE UP!! Quit letting the puppet masters who control the media, FED, NYSE, and the White House keep thinking for you.

          The racist newsletters are old news. They've been known to the media for over 20 years, they just chose to wait to unleash the new torrent of it a few months before his #1 victory in Iowa.

          Is he racist? Who cares. Even if he were, he wouldn't push racist measures through the federal government. In fact, he wants to repeal quite a few racist policies now: the drug wars.

                  Some call him a terrorist and and some a hero.

                  I am of the latter school of thought.

                  So you keep your flakes for heroes and I will take my great Americans.

      No. He's not dead meat. Let me make something VERY clear. Even if Ron Paul woke up dead from a heart attack tomorrow, it wouldn't matter. His views on liberty have created a spark in the hearts of generations to come.

      If he fails to become president, the Empire will collapse. This is our one last chance.

        Wake up - the government AND media are scared sh!tless of this guy. Every Republican candidate is attacking him, every major media outlet has ignored him (up until the racist claims).

        In an empire of lies, deceit, terror, violence, and theft, Truth and Liberty are the enemy.

          I cannot abide by that.

      I'm not aware of any claims of child molestation. Actually, I find Ron Paul preferable to some of the other GOP candidates e.g., Gingrich,Perry, Santorum and Bachmann, but that's not saying much.

      Why don't you think Paul should have to answer for racist, anti-Semitic, homophobic articles he published 10 years ago?

        Here, I'll meet you half-way. You support Ron Paul's obviously sensible and logical economic policies and I'll support welfare programs when we can afford them without monetary inflation, income taxes, and when we have sound money.

      If you Google: Ron Paul newsletters, you should see the racist comments published.  These comments are terrible, really.

      Also, if you haven't seen Bruno--Ron Paul freaks out at the thought of being in a room with a gay man.

      Paul's philosophy allows people to discriminate if they feel like it (including employers and business owners); however, this is not a quality that would be appealing for a President of the U.S.

      1. Evan G Rogers profile image84
        Evan G Rogersposted 4 years ago in reply to this

        ... Are you seriously using "Bruno" as a reference for someone's uncomfortable feelings towards homosexuals?

        Bruno whipped out his dick in a hotel room after asking Paul for an interview regarding his political beliefs.

        If someone did that to me - White, homosexual, black, asian, straight, redneck, lesbian, transgendered - I'd probably punch them in the face

        Oh, and speaking of "reading" the racist comments, compare the writing style to Paul's. They are clearly different.

              But it is hard to hold control of an army in the midst of battle, so Atlanta paid the price.

              I won't deny things were done which today would not be tolerated.

                  Sherman was pure evil, and it's entirely ironic that someone would use his picture for an avatar while decrying racism and evil spirits of another.

                  Sherman had nothing to do with those slaves being left at the river and drowning. that was the actions of an officer in the rear, who understood the practicality of not being able to support thousands of refugees during the march, and sustain the army for the war.

                  It is noted by historians that Sherman talked to blacks all across the south and treated them with respect and dignity. he allowed those able to join the army and had told the rest over and over to not follow them they could not be sustained.

                  he burned everything and took all the food and supplies so that an enemy force could not amass on his rear and attack him. It is a legitimate act in war and many a European army used the same tactics.

                  You know I was suprised that the history Channel acually did a pretty good job on thier account of the march of sherman. And you can see that there are those historians that supprt and defend him, and those that call him a terrorist.

                  but in the end he was a man making the best decisions possible in his eyes, for the results he required.

                  And Evan.

                  You need to face the fact that in that day racism was rampant and thought to be natural. i do not like it either, but that is the time he came about in, and he was a soldier who fought serious enemies. the indians were not slouches and gave as well as they got.

                  So stop acting as if the wars were one sided.

                  I am tired of the BS which seems to infer indians were peace loving hippies who did not know war till the white man came... that is just flat wrong!

                  Evil.. you cry... while suppporting a man that supports the NEO-NAZIS?

                  Are you for real, evan?

                  I would use Martin Luther for an avatar also... even though he was not what one would call a good man. he was a verulent anti-Semite... but he had his pupose and was also a product of his time.

                  you need to realize that not all ages have had the peace and love we have had. yes i know we had awful wars last century, because of Marxist and thier ilk, but it was also a time of mad progress and advances, of re-writing how man should act toward one another and be.

                  For you to think we should put a racist ron paul, born in the racist 1930s America, into the Presidency to reclaim the old glory, is absurd.

        William Tecumseh Sherman should have been hung by a public jury. Under - believe it or not - Abraham Lincoln's direct orders, he launched total warfare against civilians of his own country.

        Note: during the War Between the States, Lincoln talked very confusingly. Depending on what action he was taking, the South was either part of the Union still (for example, when he delivered the Emancipation Proclamation)  or a separate country (for example, when he slaughtered the women and children, and burnt down the cities of the South).

      His anti-Semitism is strongly inferred, by the choice of accepting Stormfront and other Racist Anti-Senitic groups as outfront supporters. His accepting monies from them simply reinforced this belief. And I believe he refused to return the money when asked to.

      Just like when the Left accepts the Communists, comintern, and internationalist Socialists, we see that they are Marxists, also.

        "His anti-semitism is strongly inferred"

        ...Coming from someone with Sherman as their avatar...

        Sherman is personally responsible for genocide. His body should be dug up and defiled.
        "Sherman's theory of white racial superiority is what led him to the policy of waging war against the Indians "till the Indians are all killed or taken to a country where they can be watched." As Fellman (p. 264) writes: Sherman planted a racist tautology: Some Indians are thieving, killing rascals fit for death; all Indians look alike; therefore, to get some we must eliminate all . . . deduced from this racist tautology . . . the less destructive policy would be racial cleansing of the land . . ."

        Sherman was also a REAL anti-semite.
        "For example, in 1862 Sherman was bothered that "the country" was "swarming with dishonest Jews" (see Michael Fellman, Citizen Sherman, p. 153). He got his close friend, General Grant, to expel all Jews from his army."

        He was also VERY anti-black (no, the North did not fight for the purpose of freeing slaves):
        "Sherman biographer Fellman further writes that to Sherman, the Jews were "like niggers" and "like greasers (Mexicans) or Indians" in that they were "classes or races permanently inferior to his own."

            But regarding the Drug War - this is a huge reason why people continue to think negatively towards blacks. I don't think I'm exploding any minds when I say that most arrests for drug usage (which encompasses most arrests altogether) are in poor neighborhoods - and many black people live in poor neighborhoods.

            One of the most anti-racist stances a politician can take is "legalize it", and yet everyone is calling him a racist.

    Ron Paul; “If you try to catch someone that has stolen a purse from you, there is no chance to catch them,” Dr. Paul said.” Referring to a black male I presume.

    If that same comment was made about running to first base, running with a football or driving to a basket, I very seriously doubt anyone would call it a racist stereotype. True? 

    Paul: “we can safely assume that 95 percent of the black males in [Washington, DC] are semi-criminal or entirely criminal”

    The correct way to phrase this would have been:  "In DC, we can safely assume black males are disproportionately represented in the area of crime."   

    Also , let’s not forget Jackson’s own confessed fear of  ‘his people.'

    Jesse Jackson (1996):: There is nothing more painful to me ... than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery, then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved. --

    Paul on Barbara Jordon:  She‘s a “moron “ and a “fraud“.  And, “her race and sex protect her from criticism.”

    I see nothing to nail him for here. I consider Pelosi a moron and a fraud. Does that make me a sexist? Obama is also spared much criticism because of his race. Remember the Jeremiah Wright & white police officer fiascoes?     

    Paul probably should have returned the stormfront money---NOT too late to stiil do it.  However, how long did it take Obama to finally denounce racist Jeremiah Wright?

    I find Ron Paul's radical pro-life beliefs quite laughable. Not only does he want to leave abortion law decisions to each individual state, he also opposes any kind of birth control that prevents implantation. If he had his way, abortion would be illegal and so would the pill, the patch, the ring, the morning after pill and anything else his magical God supposedly hates. He claims to support the Constitution, yet he has no problem with trying to fuse Church and State. Just waiting for the day America turns into a theocracy.

      Churches themselves fuse the two each and every day. But it does take a little studying to see this.

      Here is one way. Church wants to do this or that. Apply for grants to fund their this or thats. Ok, in order to recieve such grants, even from many, if not all, private funded grants, the church has to be recognized as a    what status is it,   let's see,   oh yeah,  501c3 ORGANIZATION.

      How could that possibly fuse the church with the government?

      Come on folks, and Ralph, I apologize here, I know your question was is so and so dead meat? The question should be are we dead meat.

      I love a debate. Really I do. But, this is no debatable matter.  This country is in the worst shape it has been in  in years. If you want the truth of the matter, I can't find ONE president that has a spotless record. One had this an one had that  one did this one did that. NO ONE is perfect.

      Of the politicians running, which do you think has the stability and the ability to lead this country in a positive direction?

      The past is the past. People have to understand this.

      I am almost positive that IF Mr. Paul wanted to he could himself dig up some dirt, sling it to the media pool and from there would quickly turn to mud. Tell me HOW this solves any problem? Mud slinging should be against the law. Period.

      Why can't we examine the candidates political records. Use them as a basis on forming an opinion or choosing which candidate to vote for.

      Abortion? Why is this ALWAYS brought up? Folks, the president can state his views but it aint up to him alone to make this decision. When are people going to realize this? Giving each state its own choice, in my opinion, would be the fairest. As each person is different, so are states. At least with each state having their choice, this gives the people of that state more of a chance to have more of a say in what THEY THE PEOPLE want.

      It is going to take each and person from politician to factory worker to teacher to homeless  working together.

      Racism? It is illegal. Slandering ones name should be as well.

                    You do know that Sherman was intent on winning the war quickly and decidedly, so the slaughter would stop?

                    Do you think he was in control of policy?

                    The Indians did as bad to us as we did to them, they were not lil poeace loving hippies when we met them, Evan. I know the Left would have all believe that indians were peace loving partying hippies before white Europeans came... but that is patently false.

                    They had thier own wars and conflicts going when we arrived and were more interested in technology than friendship, in powerful allies then friends.

                    By the time Sherman had come on the scene the way of those wars had been set. You do know how many conflicts with European powers we entered into in this nation, and the indians fought in them all, on one side or another.

                    Escalation occurred on both sides of the battle, and as in alot of wars throughout history, by the end it was a genocidal conflict.

                    Sherman was who he was, in the time he was... today that would be inexscusable... but back then it was a common thing in all races.

                    I would not accept those actions today... but that was a different age, Evan. And you were not there... so do not judge as to what is right and wrong by the standard of soft bellied Americanism in the 21st century.

                    History should always be taken in context, Evan.

                    And as for Islamic jihadis, I do not fault them really, they are doing what their prophet told them to in the attempt to get their Mahdi to come and bring their paradise.

                    I do blame Americans and westerners for not recognizing the facts of Islam and confronting it as it needs to be. And you can claim all would be peaceful in the middle east without America and Israel... but it would not be, Europe would simply be the target, untill islam killed., conquered, or was put down.

                You're absolutely right, that is history. That's like saying that the UK and Germany could never be allies because in 1939...

                But we're also talking about why there is no peace in Palestine...not Israel. Who will remind Israel...that Palestine does not belong to them, and they (the Israeli's) have no right to be there. Simple, does not take a genius to remind the offending party, that they have no right to cross borders.

                  there is no Palistiine.

                  It was a town in israel/Canaan, and as the Romans left Jurusalem in 70 AD they said, hey we'll call it Palistine. There were no Palistinian people until 1967 after the war and they needed to create a pity party for the world to swoon over.

                  Lets get it straight... the palistinians are a made up people. let them go back to the countries who left them there. And that would be all the Islamic nation surrounding israel.

                  And lets get it straight that Israel purchased that property... they did not steal it.

                  "The cornerstone argument in the Arab narrative against Israel is that the Zionists in the 19th and early 20th centuries came to the Land of Israel and stole Arab land. This is a very simple assertion, easy to visualize, seemingly logical and amenable to a brief presentation: after all, Zionists did come from Europe to what was then Palestine, and the Arabs were already living there. So obviously when the Jews came they took Arab land.

                  Although there exists voluminous evidence to the contrary in Arab and Turkish and British sources indicating the exact opposite, it is difficult to present this contrary evidence and explain its importance in as brief and simple a manner as is done with the Arab assertion. There are too many variables: Arab demographics, Jewish demographics, Zionist agrarian reclamation technology, land purchases, crown land vs. privately owned land, absentee landlords, etc. This imbalance puts the advocate on behalf of Zionism and Israel at a disadvantage, even though the evidence supporting the Israeli narrative and contradicting the Arab narrative is vast and thoroughly vetted. For an excellent compilation and analysis of this evidence, see Kenneth Stein, The Land Question in Palestine, 1917-1939 (University of North Carolina Press, 1984, reviewed here and here).

                  However, there is one testimony from an unimpeachable source stating that the Jews stole no land, but rather bought land in vast quantities from willing sellers who were the legal owners of the land that was sold. This unimpeachable source is so unarguably innocent of any pro-Israel or pro-Jewish or pro-Zionist sentiment that there can be no rational question regarding the veracity of his testimony. That source is the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, the Hajj Mohammed Effendi Amin el-Husseini (1895 to 1974)."

                  http://www.ourjerusalem.com/history/sto … salem.html

                  No... there was no theft.

    Ron Paul's own words:

    "Racism is simply an ugly form of collectivism, the mindset that views humans only as members of groups and never as individuals. Racists believe that all individuals who share superficial physical characteristics are alike; as collectivists, racists think only in terms of groups. By encouraging Americans to adopt a group mentality, the advocates of so-called “diversity” actually perpetuate racism. Their intense focus on race is inherently racist, because it views individuals only as members of racial groups....

    "The true antidote to racism is liberty. Liberty means having a limited, constitutional government devoted to the protection of individual rights rather than group claims.

    "Liberty means free-market capitalism, which rewards individual achievement and competence, not skin color, gender, or ethnicity. In a free market, businesses that discriminate lose customers, goodwill, and valuable employees- while rational businesses flourish by choosing the most qualified employees and selling to all willing buyers. More importantly, in a free society every citizen gains a sense of himself as an individual, rather than developing a group or victim mentality.

    This leads to a sense of individual responsibility and personal pride, making skin color irrelevant. Rather than looking to government to correct what is essentially a sin of the heart, we should understand that reducing racism requires a shift from group thinking to an emphasis on individualism."


    This statement pretty much shows why year after year of 'spending money on being diverse' has failed.


    Here's another good one:

    "The racist effects of Davis-Bacon are no mere coincidence. In fact, many original supporters of Davis-Bacon, such as Representative Clayton Allgood, bragged about supporting Davis-Bacon as a means of keeping cheap colored labor out of the construction industry."

    This shows that his adamant fight against foolish Federal Government economic policies not only help the economy, but also help fight against racism.

                Ultimately, it boils down to this: capitalism is basically when you own your own stuff; and socialism is basically when more than one person claims ownership of something.

    My 2 cents.  Raul Paul has a lot of interesting Libertarian views.  But, he's not a real Republican and though he will probably (not sure since Santorum is heading up and Romney might pull it off) will win Iowa, he will never win New Hampshire or South Carolinas.  Another issue is the people who are voting in these GOP caucuses.  They do not represent all of the Republican party and they especially do not represent the voting population.

    Since Paul's views are so far from the mainstream, he will never win the Presidency.  That has little to do with him being an alleged racist or homophobe.  It has more to do with the fact that the both sectors of the Republican party (old school and Tea Party) want nothing to do with him.  Fox has belittled him every shot they've gotten and will continue to demean him. And since Fox is the voice of the Republican party (for good or bad), that spells bad news for Ron Paul followers. 

    Ron Paul has views that would change America society and politics forever and no matter what the GOP tells you, they would never allow that.  They want change, but the change Paul is talking about would turn the government on its head.

    He will, most likely, be the 3rd party nomination.  Sadly, we might get Donald Trump in that role as well. sad

      Right now, the caucuses are,  for the most part, pure right wing conservatives who don't give a rats ass what the Democrats say.

      And no, it's not Paul or 4 years of Obama, since in my opinion for reasons I've stated above Paul has a minimal chance of winning.  And by minimal, I'm being polite since it's less than that. 

      And, I'll just say, I don't hate the idea of 4 more years of Obama.  I hate the idea of 4 more years of the House and Senate as is.  All of them seem incompetent and no president can withstand a lockout like they've shown since it is up to the House and Senate to create laws, not the president.   The President's job is to discuss with them, they design and approve the bill then he signs it into law.

          That would be a sane idea.  I've always wondered why they would allow one state to take control over the system over another.  As a former resident of California, it always baffled me as a youngester that few politicians catered to us.  Now that I'm much older, its clear that California's caucuses and primaries are so late in the game that no one really cares, even though California's electorate is very significant.

          But, what is this "fairness" you speak of?  This is politics we're talking about right?

I always knew that even if he did win the  GOP nomination, his chances against Obama is slim to none basically because this guy is whacked out of his mind along with a few other GOP contenders.

      EF, was their something in particular in Kirchick's piece that you found hard to believe or that you disagreed with? I thought it was quite convincing, especially after reading verbatim quotes from Paul's newsletter which he's now trying to disavow. He's really quite an uneducated, superficial thinker, a medical doctor who pretends to be an expert on economics and political theory. He should have stuck to delivering babies.

        I re-read the article and the other one it linked to (the Angry White Man one - http://www.tnr.com/article/politics/angry-white-man).

        I have no idea from reading the articles whether Ron Paul actually did make those comments in his newsletters, or was simply unwise/naive enough to let articles written by other people through unedited. As James Kirchick admitted, there was no by-line and Ron Paul denies writing them, so we may never know.

        The fact that the article spent the entire time talking about Paul's alleged racist remarks and his "conspiracy" leanings without examining any of his policies on their own merits does however speak of a hatchet job to me. I've read enough of them in my time for my hackles to rise instantly whenever I read another one.

        I think that Ron Paul's attempt to join mainstream politics is doomed to fail - either because the hatchet men will carry on digging and will make up stuff if they can't find enough real material, or because he will eventually win the vote but find that he has to sell out because some of his allies have ideas that are incompatible with his.

        Addendum: Even if none of what I said in the above paragraph comes to pass and you end up with a President Ron Paul this year who is actually able to implement his policies, you would end up with a radically different society - one that is far more socially conservative as well as fiscally so. Not sure if many people are ready for that, even libertarians.

          Very true. Many people don't realize how radical Ron Paul's ideas are. He wants to erase 200 plus years of legislation and Supreme Court decisions affirming the laws' constitutionality. We live in a complex, interconnected country and world. There is no turning the clock back, not very far at least.

          I have never accused Paul of being a racist personally. He comes across as an honest, decent person. However, criticizing him for the contents of a newsletter with his name on it is fair game. Look what they did to Obama simply because he was a member of a church whose minister was a radical black activist. Moreover, Paul's opposition to federal legislation designed to prevent racial discrimination is badly mistaken, in my opinion. I lived through the civil rights revolution and worked in a major corporation before and after. The legislation brought about major, badly needed changes in hiring and personnel practices affecting women and minorities.

    Ron Paul isn't dead meat. He could be a strong 3rd party candidate, stronger even than Teddy Roosevelt when he ran on the Bull Moose/Progressive ticket.

    Heck, he might even make history with a 3rd party win (it's a long shot, but still...).

    But he won't get the GOP nomination. He won't.

    Why not? Because Paul actually believes in cutting the size of the federal government, even the bits of it that conservatives love. He would cut funding for the War on Drugs. He would stop the war on terror, bring the soldiers home, and close our bases overseas. He would cut foreign aid to everyone, including Israel. He wouldn't support legislation to ban gay marriage (but probably wouldn't support legislation to legalize it either, so that one's a wash...) He'd try to overturn the NDAA (you know, the one that lets the Army throw Americans in jail indefinitely without due process as long as someone accuses them of being a terrorist? The one that practically everybody in Congress voted for?) He'd try to overturn the Patriot Act.

    And because of all of that, Candidate Paul would pull a lot of votes away from Obama's erstwhile supporters. Lots of the people who can't support Obama anymore, but also know that whoever the GOP puts up would be worse, will vote for Paul. But also because of all that, the GOP won't nominate Paul for president, because the GOP actually loves big government when it blows stuff up overseas, when it sends money to support Israel (not so much because they love Israel but because they believe that Israel's existence is proof that Jesus coming, just stopped for gas and a quick bite on the way here) and when it oppresses gay people. Paul would stop blowing stuff up overseas, stop sending money to hasten the Rapture, and doesn't seem to care about gay people one way or the other, so the GOP will vote in a Santorum or a Gingrich or a maybe even a Romney (who seems to have overcome Romneycare and Mormonism to become the GOP frontrunner).

    So the only way Paul can win the Whitehouse is by running on the Libertarian ticket. They'd take him in a heartbeat if he'd join them. The only non-libertarian thing about him is he doesn't like abortion (which might just get some of the Rapture fans to hold their noses and vote for him in spite of the Israel thing).

    I'm predicting a three-way contest between a weakened Obama, a laughable GOP stuffed shirt that would make a better punchline than a president, and long-shot Ron Paul running as a Libertarian (and Ted Nugent will probably support him at first, and then turn on him at the last minute, as he did with Jon Coon's campaign for one of Michigan's senate seats in '94).

    I think it would be great if there were such a 3-way contest, and it'd be even greater if there were no clear majority in most states, and the 3rd party guy took New Hampshire and Alaska. And maybe Montana.

    It might shake up the people and let them realize that they can vote for someone who doesn't have a D or an R after their name.

      It could happen that way. Ron Paul running as an independent would also pull votes from Romney, assuming he's the GOP nominee. I'm not fond of third party candidates. If Ralph Nader hadn't run Gore would likely have been elected instead of Bush.

        Dude, Gore probably was elected instead of Bush. We'll never know, because 1) Gore sued for a targeted recount instead of a real recount 2) W's countersuit delayed things long enough for 3) the Supreme Court of the US to halt the Florida recount and hand Florida's electoral votes (and the election) to W.

        If Gore had cared more about counting all the votes correctly than about winning, he would have sued for a real recount from the start, and maybe Florida would have been able to do one.

          Paul would be substantially different from W: he'd be more anti-war and pro-due-process than W or Obama.
          He'd also be more anti-Social Security, anti-Medicare, and anti-SCHIP than W.

        I'm sure Michigan only lets us vote in one primary, but I seem to remember that it doesn't matter which one you vote in. I really don't get that, as it seems to me that each party should make its own rules about who may vote in its caucus/primary/whatever they use to pick their state's candidate, and the government ought to have nothing to do with it. (Another reason to support Paul?)

        The problem is that for every Libertarian idea I love (not wasting money on a war on drugs, for example) they have an equal and opposite idea that I hate (like dismantling Social Security, for example).

        I haven't found a candidate in 2012 that I wouldn't have to hold my nose to vote for.

          Michigan is a CLOSED PRIMARY system.

          This means that you have to be pre-registered in the party that you wish to cast your vote in.

          This means that, if you wished to vote for Ron Paul in the Republican Primary, you'd have to immediately announce yourself as a Republican now (or maybe you missed your due-date) and then you can vote.

          Only after a 2nd-Term president leaves office is the primary TRULY closed. You'd actually have to pick which primary to vote in. After the 1st term of a presidency, it doesn't matter because that president will almost always be the candidate.
