This is not entirely true. There are many "liberals" and "progressives" like me who are behind Ron Paul. This actually makes your point even more valid, actually. Not only will a non-RP nomination split up the GOP vote but it will also lose out on many left-wing votes.
Personally.. I view this as a "last chance" for this country.. if Paul wins it will exacerbate the movement of Libertarian ideas.. of small government and personal accountability. If he loses .. the movement likely dies, and many will feel hopeless, dejected, and overwhelmed by the bleak future prospects offered to this country: A ever consolidating, ever powerful, ever growing Federal Government that decade after decade will deteriorate the freedoms of this country until there is only our lives left to take.
