The reality is that Ron Paul is kicking ass in Iowa right now! You're damn right we're enthusiastic! Half my paycheck went to getting Ron Paul superbrochures, and the next one is going towards the December 16th moneybomb!
It's wonderful how enthusiastic Paul supporters are, but concerning they ignore reality.

Because in many states, like Iowa, you actually have to be registered as a Republican to vote in the Republican primary. This kills Paul's chances.
You may register and vote on election day. To do so, you first must go to the correct polling place for your current address on election day.
In both parties, a caucus participant must be a resident of the precinct and be at least 18 years old as of November 6, 2012 (born on or before November 6, 1994). Participants must actually attend the caucus in the precinct in which they live - there is no absentee voting. In addition, participants must be registered to vote with the party whose caucus they are attending. Both parties allow participants to register, update their registration, or change party on caucus night. The parties are then responsible for returning the voter registration forms to our office. As of mid-November, both parties have already produced the lists they will use to check in voters on caucus night. You may always register to vote or update your address or party with our office, but if you do so between now and January 3, it is possible that your party may ask you to complete another registration form on caucus night.
Others in the crowd, filling out voter registration forms after the event was over, could be heard lamenting checking, "Republican," on the form. For them, it wasn't the party, but the candidate who has won them over. Whitney Jackley, a Cedar Falls precinct captain, was one. "I never thought I'd ever be a Republican," she said. "I voted for Obama."

I look at it like this, if you want to send a BIG message to our political and corporate leaders that we'll no longer stand by and continue to have a political systems that is bought and controlled by bankers, neocons and the corporate elite, vote for Ron Paul.
If you want to continue supporting politicians who are using your tax dollars to bail out bankers and corporations, neglecting the middle class, ignoring the dire economic crisis were facing at home, and continuing our occupations and wars overseas in the name of national security , just keep on voting for the same lying, self-serving politicians you think have your best interests at heart.
