Ron Paul: Really?

22 of the most recent 26 posts in this forum have had "Ron Paul" in their headlines. Yet virtually no serious political wonk has accepted Paul as a 'serious' candidate.

Do y'all honestly accept him as being a serious candidate? I mean, it's not like he'll be anywhere near the Repug nomination (if they can refer to the 'Democrat' party, I can refer to the 'Repugnican' party.) Some of his ideas are quite worthwhile but that doesn't have a damned thing to do with polling. So... Why do y'all think he'll have a real effect upon the election?

If he's no serious candidate then why do the likes of you bother making countless threads telling us he hasn't got a chance??

It's good though because you just make more and more people take notice and research to see what all the fuss is about..

I'm sure Ron Paul would thank you.

How is he not a "serious" candidate? I find him far more "serious" than most other candidates. In fact, while they're all concerned with slamming each other during debates, throwing slander everywhere, being accused of sexual harassment, he's still focused on the issues and how he's going to fix them. How can you say he's not a "serious" candidate when one of the top reported and talked about candidate, Herman Cain, is the biggest joke on the presidential elections.

Delegates win primaries. It was a little secret passed on by the campaign last election cycle. While votes matter somewhat, delegates can win an election for a candidate in some cases. Ron Paul supporters have filled many delegate positions across the country. Hang on to your hat, when these other candidates start dropping Ron Paul will be in the final 3 for sure.

This is a war of ideas.

Paul is the only candidate who doesn't seem totally hypnotized by the accepted ideologies of the mainstream.

If he doesn't run, then it won't be worth voting. And if he doesn't get a chance to go up against Obama, then we should either do a write-in campaign for him, or noisily skip voting.

What we are trying to do is send a message back into a system that expects all of us to accept all of its messages to us without question. It's a criminal system now, and the message we are trying to send is that we are onto them and no longer intend to play along.

The price to regain our support and cooperation would be total honesty. Paul may not be totally honest, but compared to the others he is an angel. That's why he is getting the support he's getting. People respond well to honesty. This is the weakest point in the criminal plan. Because they can't be honest and be criminals at the same time.

One of the most common criminal exploits in a neighborhood they are trying to move into is called the "protection racket." I quote Wikipedia:

A protection racket is an extortion scheme whereby a criminal group or individual coerces a victim (usually a business) to pay money, supposedly for protection services against violence or property damage. Racketeers coerce reticent potential victims into buying "protection" by demonstrating what will happen if they don't—they damage the victims' property. In most cases, the racketeers do not actually protect their client from anything but the racketeers themselves, and their "protection" is merely extortion. However, if their victim is seriously threatened by a third party, sometimes gangsters will protect their source of revenue.

This is exactly what is happening in America at this time.

How do the victims of such a racket regain the upper hand? In most cases, it takes real courage. Because almost for sure someone's going to die. As anyone who has looked knows, many already have. It takes a combination of bravery and finesse to win out against the criminal mind. We have one apparent advantage of this point. Certain portions of the military seem to be onto the scam. The Marines seem to be standing out in this regard. A lot of local police departments are not onto the scam, and are dutifully playing their role in finding excuses to arrest "enemies of the state."

The best way to turn the tables is to claim that you actually have control over something that is very dear to the criminals, and that they will lose it if they don't back down. In this case, it would be our willingness to fund their global police system, which consists primarily of US military bases. If we let them know that everyone realizes they are running a protection racket on the planet and that we no longer intend to provide them with their "muscle," they would back off. And if Paul gets a lot of support, or if their candidates get very little, that would be one way to send such a message. I think Paul knows about this and it's the main reason he talks so much about all our overseas bases and military involvements. That sort of talk scares them because it makes sense. So they've told the mainstream media to ignore Paul, hoping this will prevent his ideas from gaining any popularity.
