Correct me if I am wrong but didn't "they" (source) say that if The good Dr. wins Iowa they will just move to the second place winner?
If this is true then he will be forced to run as an independant which will make it much harder to garner the support.
Am I wrong?

Kent campaigned with us earlier this afternoon and went immediately afterward to a Ron Paul event and announced he is changing teams. Kent said to me yesterday that ‘everyone sells out in Iowa, why shouldn’t I,’ then he told me he would stay with our campaign. The Ron Paul campaign has to answer for its actions.
OK - the problems I've got with this:
1) She doesn't say WHEN Paul allegedly offered a large sum of money to work for his campaign (if he did) - I would assume that Paul originally approached Sorenson about being a campaign staffer when he originally booted up his Iowa campaign, as Paul had endorsed him for state government.
3) I'll waiting on Sorenson's response to the sell-out claim. But I'd have to say we probably would have heard of something before now - like a firing? - if it were true.

I'd guess the majority of ATS'ers are serious Ron Paul supporters, at least thats the drift I get. Regardless, if you are or not, it appears America is SO disgusted with corruption and business as usual, that it only makes sense to jump on the Ron Paul bandwagon. The powers that are, are finding that no matter how elaborate their plans, they are being foiled, and the news agencies with smear agendas are coming under fire from the public. When the news services have no sway, the will of the people shines apparent. I'm voting for Ron Paul, and I think Americans don't want to miss their one last chance to reclaim America. Though through it all, ultimatly it will be the will of God, in the bigger plan of how His prophecies reveal themselves. I know the atheists will take issue, but they are irrelevant anyway, in the grand scheme of things. Ten years from now, it will either be a better world, with a God fearing, respectful people or it will have sunk into utter chaos.
Try as you like there is a plan of what God will allow, and what the evil forces will be allowed to in the end, fulfill prophecy. From Genesis to today, it has already been written, and if a people will call upon God, they will be saved. Think long and hard on that, so far it's irrefutable.edit on 29-12-2011 by Plotus because: (no reason given)

I don't mean this to sound cold, or anti-Paul...so please understand that my opinion is simply meant as something for everyone to consider.
If you are a Ron Paul supporter, vote for the man regardless of anyone saying "he can't win" or "you're throwing your vote away". He is intelligent, has some great ideas and (IMHO) would make a great President.
If, however, you are not sure about Ron Paul, or think some of his ideas are too "different"...consider this. If nothing else, a vote for Dr. Paul is a smack in the face to the typical candidates, the current President and all the "powers that be". And that is exactly what our government needs...a smack in the face. If you are sick and tired of the same crap, the same infighting and want to send a message to all the "dead wood" in our government...send your vote to Ron Paul. Make the establishment shake in their boots!

Awesome interview on FOX with senior advisor for Ron Paul. No matter what she hits him with, he answers brilliantly, the interviewr seems to be quite uncomfortable in her chair a few time because he hits that nail on the head time and time again!!!
RON PAUL IS ON FIRE!!!

First of all, Paul’s campaign apparatus is dramatically superior to anything Buchanan ever had. His Iowa Caucus campaign is a well-oiled machine, and the envy of the entire process. They’re running the best commercials. They’re the best organized. They’re the most loyal. And look beyond Iowa, too. Paul wins straw polls all over the country, including CPAC and even at the 2011 Values Voters Summit. I know several of these people who are the masterminds of Paul’s organization, and these folks don’t put their phasers on stun when it comes to their opponents and know what they’re doing. They’re not kooks, they’re sharp cookies and losing is not an option in their strategy. They have no problem burning down the entire system, because they distrust it anyway...
...The more Rudy McRomneys the Republican Party serves up, the more popular someone like Paul will become. Frustrated voters will use Paul as a blunt instrument, or maybe even a sharp object, to attack a failed system with.
The Republicrats deserve Ron Paul. The ruling class created the Ron Paul phenomenon by its own actions. And the more they persist in being tone-deaf to voters’ angst, the more likely they are to suffer at his hands.
And as much as I disagree with Paul, I’d choose him over the Republicrat ruling class any day of the week, and twice on Sunday.
