I doubt anyone is going to kill Ron Paul. He'll just go by the way of Ross Perot. I really wish there were the perfect candidate out there. The selection looks pretty limited. I know here in Iowa there is a lot of talk about Ron Paul from some coworkers I have, but even my favorite conservative talk radio station seems to be afraid to really "endorse" him. I don't like the fact he wants to get rid of the CIA. That would weaken national defense significantly. The candidate that has my vote will acknowledge the threat of Radical Islam and its violent ways, uses the phrase "illegal immigrant" not "undocumented worker", and wants to lower my taxes, privatize social security, and not try to make my United States a socialist state.
Democracy works. If it didn't, you wouldn't have so many people who WANT to live here and WANT to blow it up when they can't.
DarkHeartRising, you ARE my friend in this forum! Im impressed with your "values" you seem to have and a "level head"!
im going to try and be polite about this as possible.
Nobody wants anything from the US. the US has absolutely nothing to offer the world. that is why they have the CIA and all the military technology in the world. The US has not enough natural resources to maintain its living standards, so you usee the CIA and your "National Defense" to go and take resources from other nations.
If you want to be the big bully of the planet. admit it, please dont hide behide phrases like freedom and national security, unless you say it the way it is meant. to take others freedoms and maintain it internationaly.
im not trying to pick a fight here, but it is just crazy to me to think that people are affraid of being attacked in america, when all america has been doing for the last 50 years is attacking other nations. Ron Paul knows that if he pulls his countries interests out of other nations then there will be no need to protect themselves from anyone.
Look at Canada, canada has more natural resources than the US could dream of, but we are not going around threatening everyone to stay out, and we dont need to. at least not for now.

DES MOINES, IA - Texas Congressman Ron Paul has won the first-ever online Iowa straw poll, capturing a commanding 44% of the over 6,000 votes cast in an online poll sponsored by Iowa Congressman Tom Latham's campaign. The results of the two-week online poll (located at: onlineiowastrawpoll.com) were announced one day before Saturday's Ames Straw Poll, which is considered by most as the first real test of a presidential candidate's organizational strength in Iowa.
