As soon as Ron Paul becomes a viable canditate, getting more than all the other repub. canditates, he will be scrutinized by the media so much that he will drop back amoung the last place. Romney is most electable, just because he knows how to duck and cover when it comes to politics. He also carries himself in a presidential way. Unfortinuately this matters more to the undecideds than the issues. There are several good repub. canditates other than romney, that is the problem. If it were only Romney and Newt, for example, then Romney would be way behind in the polls.

Romney can't beat Obama. He will get destroyed on his tax records, destroyed on his Bain Capital management, destroyed on Healthcare, and the strict Conservatives, like the ones supporting Paul will not roll over to Romney, they will roll over to Independents and 3rd Parties. The disgruntled Democrats won't support Romney, they'll go back to Obama, and the mainstream Republicans will support Romney, but they won't be excited, and they won't turn out at the polls in the record numbers it would take to get a win. Face it, Romney can't win!

BUT Paul on the other hand. Paul will automatically get the Republican support, so Romney's followers do transfer to Paul. Liberals like Colbert and Bill Maher have said they like Paul. Blue Dog Democrats are closer to Paul than they are Obama. Paul can get support from both OWS and Tea Party folks. The young crowd will show up in mass to support Paul, and once Paul has the support of the Republican establishment, his fundraising will be able to compete with Obama's fundraising.

Paul is the only one that stands a chance in November.

The next president will be either Paul or Obama. It will certainly not be Romney or Newt, even if they get the nomination.

Thank you TCmike although I will continue to support Ron Paul for his beliefs and not the way he carries himself, but I can see what you mean. Mitt Romney just looks and sounds like a cutout of what a president is supposed to be. Thanks again for elaboration!

Who is Ron Paul?
I heard rumors there is some man, not as old as flag,
but speaks of the same freedoms the flag represents.

In my opinion (a phrase you should perhaps consider adding to your OP, as it all seems to be opinion-based), I don't see several good republican candidates.

If I am to be honest, my conscience will only allow me to vote for one of the current candidates, the very one you are saying people will not vote for. A bit ironic, though I do get what you are saying.

But that's just my opinion.

The reason for this thread? As for Ron Paul being elected. The only thing that will stop that won't be some million dollar liar who should get out of politics and maybe go to Hollywood. Our future and our country's future is not a sound bite or a movie script. The only thing that will stop Ron Paul from getting elected will be a bought and paid for rigged election.

Ron Paul is unlikely to win and I’m not sure if it’s because of…

A. Media bias -Lack of corporate sponsorship
B. The way votes are counted
C. The inability of some Republicans to fully consider that: whoever they choose needs to get elected president (as opposed to Republican Candidate again!).

But To Me…
All that matters is the American people get a president with a genuine voting record for his political principles, and who is defiant against both the loss of civil liberties (in the name of an invisible “terror” which kills less than lightening!) and accepting money for policy.
I also like him because he has received relatively little, from government lobbyists, and so seemingly, much more from real human beings than any other candidate.

Wait. What?

The only reason you think there are no good republican canditates is that the liberal media has already made up your mind for you. Think about if they took such care with their questions of the liberals and democrats as with conservatives and republicans. The media, tv, newspapers, are not unbiased like they should be, instead they are liberal now if you haven't noticed. So that means democrats will not be called on the carpet for their mistakes like the media will do to any republican canditate. Journalism has sold out to the liberal and socialist view somehow.

I'm pretty sure you are right on that one. Ron is now running second place for the Republican nomination, but you would think he didn't exist according to his coverage.

As far as being unelectable, I don't buy that. Romney is handsome, but that's as far as it goes. He's owned by big money, changes his mind as he wishes, and is a Mormon --- which to me means he isn't bright enough to figure out that his religion is false, contrived by a well-meaning young man in 1830. His own holy books contradict each other, so it's no wonder Romney does, too. He has a lot of Mormon support, and you can believe it would help his religion in Salt Lake City to establish their credibility and increase their membership. My guess would be that the Mormon church is behind some of the big money he is getting.

Come on people, if you keep saying the guy in second place is unelectable, people might start to believe you!

Don't get me wrong, if Ron Paul beats Romney and all others I'll vote for him without thinking twice. The Ron Paul supporters are die-hards that are energied and get out to vote for him. If the other canditates had supporters like that the polls would be way different.

I hope you understand that the "liberal" and "socialist" agenda may have more supporters here on ATS than you may realize. I myself strongly identify as a communist (which has never been attempted). To just label something socialist to describe something you don't like is a mistake. Socialism does not mean a dictatorship. Heck, a Socialist system doesn't even need a government.

I understand it's pretty odd that I support Ron who is the biggest advocate of the free market system there is, but the way I see it we either need to tear off all of the post-it-notes on the constitution or burn that mofo now...
edit on 20-1-2012 by boot2theface because: (no reason given)

I agree with you, but further discusing Romney and his mormanism is getting off the subject. If that is the case why don't you dive into the doctorines of black liberation theology, of which Barack Obama was a member of for over 20 years.

For people with BRAINS who USE them, then Ron Paul is the ONLY electable guy in this field of CLOWNS.

Emphasis on "BRAINS". Lets hope voters actually USE THEM this election...

Paul will automatically get the Republican support


No he won't, neocons won't vote for him, big business republicans won't vote for him, fundamentalists won't vote for him (most of the won't)
