But it's like the last UK General Election.
We had most of the country by a fairly large majority talking about how they wouldn't vote Labour again because they ruined the nation in many ways
over 13 years of power and don't have the interests of the people in mind. This went on for months leading to the election.
People such as myself voted for the first time because we wanted a change and that looked set but then results came and lo and behold, no clear winner
because the people claiming to not vote Labour again voted for them as the safe option while the idiots surged to try and vote in the Liberal
Democrats despite their ridiculous and unworkable policies.
We've had a Coalition government ever since who argue with each other because the Conservatives and the British people don't want to be part of
Europe while the Lib Dems are still pushing to get us into Europe and adopting the Euro as currency.
Translate that to US politics. Lets say Paul has a majority of support in the run up to the election but when it comes down to it, people vote Romney
anyway. What then?
And either way, whether Paul wins or not I still think the Republicans are trying hard to not have anyone worth electing as President running against
Obama purely so he can have another 4 years to screw up and then the Republicans can swoop in and mop up in 2016 with whoever they want to back.
