They ignore Ron Paul because he's as different from the other GOP contenders as Obama is. Ron Paul does not 'fit' into the 2012 GOP. (and this is
GOOD thing.) His ideas do NOT coincide with what Republicans across this country THINK they're supposed to support. In 2012, the word "Republican"
means Anti-Obama, Family Values (read anti-abortion and anti-gay "family values"), and the Dream of Theocracy. Santorum is the closest thing they
have to someone who would force those values on the rest of the country and that's what the GOP and the voters seem to want to do. (Santorum raised
$1M in 18 hours after Iowa)
Paul represents something ENTIRELY different. And unless he can convince the Republican voter that he is the man, they're going to vote for Santorum
(for his agenda) or Romney (for his electability and ability to beat Obama.)
It is my opinion that Paul should QUIT trying to compete with the GOP contenders, who are SO different than he is and run as an Independent. NOW
before the primaries. The more he is slated against Santorum and Romney, the more he will lose. Paul is like a fox in the henhouse, running for the
position of lead hen... I don't think this is going to work for him.
Of course they ignore him. Some may think his differences make him stand out and that's true, just not in a good way to many brainwashed GOP voters
and the media. I think he should stand apart from BOTH parties if he wants to take a new road.
