No, I'm sorry but he will NOT win.
..because it takes a whole lotta "attaboy's" to overcome one "uh oh".
He shot himself on the foot when he said there should be a nuclear Iran, and that didn't go well with many.
Also, he may have the intelligence to be President but his demeanor and personality are a little too much on the "push over" side.
He is too much of a kind sweet Uncle, (translation: not tough enough).
That alone will keep from voting for him.
What the hell are you talking about? He has his opinions, and he sticks to them. What kind of a
"push over" would have a perfect voting record in the Congress? He is the stark opposite of a pushover. He doesn't change his views to match the
public and become popular, he sticks to his views and the public are the ones changing their views to match his.
The people are waking up and realizing that the wars need to end, and Ron Paul knows this. That's why he doesn't want to invade Iran, he never said
"there should be a nuclear Iran" as far as I know, he just says that we shouldn't focus our military efforts on their country because sanctioning them
will be the thing that instigates another brutal war or another terrorist attack.
He is definitely worried about them using their nukes if they develop them, but his stance is basically that we need to quit finding excuses to fight
wars, and that we need to leave other countries to deal with things themselves and mind our own business.
Another good point Ron Paul always makes is that the Soviet Union had over 30,000 nukes during the Cold War, but we never invaded them. Now Iran
potentially developing a couple nuclear weapons (which based on what Ron Paul claims members of the CIA told him won't be for many years) is enough
for the American people to say "Look, they're going to nuke people! We need more war!"
It's pure propaganda, and the people are eating it up again. It's just another excuse to keep us in the Middle East. Do you guys notice a similarity
between this and the justification for the Invasion of Iraq? WMDs? Where the hell were those things? It's the same situation all over again but the
people can't even see that.
