I'm afraid Ron Paul won't be elected for nomination.
Either that, or he might be killed if he gets too close to winning.
If Ron Paul gets killed there won't be any second chances for TPTB this time, it will be EXTREMELY obvious. There will be mass rioting and chaos, and those responsible will eventually be found and likely beaten to death by an angry mob.edit on 24-9-2011 by L00kingGlass because: (no reason given)

My biggest concern with Ron Paul is his stance on social health care and social security, meaning the lack there of. I am disabled by multiple sclerosis and cannot work. I have been fighting for Disability for the past 5 years. The day I get it will be the best miracle of my life. For those like me who can't work and NEED Disability, what would happen to us?

The person behind this post seemingly appears more racist than the idea behind the post itself, in my opinion. I think it was poor wording, my friend.

It is too bad this awesome video has less than 3,000 views. Our country might be screwed. However, the comments on this thread are so clear and insightful that I think, or at least hope, there might be a chance.

Yes, yes. Ron Paul is awesome, and he's going to change the world. I swear I've heard all of this stuff before. About 4 years ago, if I'm not mistaken. Don't get me wrong, I'm a Paul supporter. I sincerely hope that, if he gets elected, he does change things. BUT...one continuous rule still applies: power corrupts people, and complete power corrupts completely. I really hope for change, but I'm not holding my breath.

ATS suffers from what i call "Insulation Syndrome". You spend most of your time talking with people who are like you and believe the same things you do, therefore you have an inflated sense of how many people actually share those views. How does that apply to Ron Paul? As a woman with average friends all I have to do is ask "What do you think of Ron Paul". I generally get a "Who?" or an eye roll. His name only comes up among his political ardent who really seem to annoy conservatives in my town. I've found this to be true with almost every group of average people I have encountered. Big on the internet does not equal big in real life.
Start flaming guys, but the reality here is Paul will never win the nod. Assassination fantasies are pointless, the guy will never win and you know it. maybe he will run as a third party candidate and split the Conservative vote. Stop putting all your faith in this guy like he is the Messiah and move on to something productive because this bird is never coming off the ground guys.
