If MsAphrodite will let me, I'd like to offer my opinion on Paul's support. It is very vocal and dedicated, probably more so than any other candidate. But I don't see it as being anywhere near large enough to win the Republican nomination. Sort of like the OWS of the Republican party.
Could he beat Obama? It's early to tell, no one has really attacked him yet as they have the other candidates. But at the moment Obama's looking a little weak against the GOP, and they haven't started to attack him yet.
Really, truly, honestly. I came into this thread to find out more about Paul and his strategies because I really have no idea who to support. I don't have the money to contribute to any of them. So I'm just waiting and trying to learn. And despite what some have said, I have no agenda. I'm not trying to push or destroy any candidate, because I don't know who I want to push or destroy.

Your well known as a Ron Paul naysayer, and I don't understand how you can't see that if any other one of those candidates get into the White house, things are going to get real bad real quick.
Look at the recent legislation that has been passed and suggested, including the Patriot act, the NDAA, NAFTA, SOPA & PIPA (which will be passed under a different name soon enough).
Can't you see what they are doing?
9/11 has been proven to be a false flag and you trust the establishment?
Your either incredibly ignorant or (I hate to say it) a paid shill, which I know you have been accused of before.
Good luck to you sir, because you will need it if you get your way.
And they will run on a republican ticket - and if they keep rigging it the people will rise up, that I am sure of.

You complained about people who have a dissenting opinion of Ron Paul, calling them paid shills.
I chimed in because I was offended that you would say such a thing.

There obviously isn't a way for me to respond to insults.
Maybe you could address some of my points, and we could discuss those?
Name calling on internet forums doesn't interest me.
Do you believe it is possible for Ron Paul to get elected? Do you believe that changing the Fed note over to Rothschild gold would cause a qualitative change in the economy? Do you believe that the "pure free market" could function in a world of international corporations that control almost all capital?
What is your specific argument against what I am saying, other than insults?

How are we still talking about this like it is real? He isn't winning anything. I mean, everyone knew from the beginning that this was the way it was going to go, so it was always delusional, but now that it is an absolute fact that there is no possibility that he can possibly win, it is incredibly frightening that people are still talking about all of this like it's real.
Doesn't it all seem slightly mentally ill, to keep going on like this, when we all know it is not going to happen? I am not sure how else to phrase what is happening on truth forums/radio/etc. It is indicative of severe psychological instability, going on like this.

Au Contraire, the Republican Party cannot win, and will cease to exist without the backing of the Ron Paul supporters.
