it doesn't appear to me that the Republicans are trying to win the election this year...it seems completely obvious that if they were then Jeb Bush would be participating and front running...much like his Brother and Father...both of whom are former Presidents.

I think the Republicans are just about beating Ron Paul and sending him into a quite retirement.

But we all know people are predisposed to believing in lands of make believe. a little hope never hurt anyone.

RP doesn't have the support of the GOP base...and he also wouldn't get enough Democrat votes. In short, he doesn't stand a chance I'm afraid.

In 1992, Ross Perot received 19% of the popular vote. Ron Paul is much more popular than Perot ever was. If Dr. Paul runs as a 3rd Party candidate and MSM allows him to debate with Mitt and Barry on national TV as they allowed Perot to do in '92 then I do believe he can win. The average American needs to realize that the GOP/DEM illusion of choice will get the country no where and if we truly want change it is time for a 3rd party candidate to win the Presidency. Many Americans are waking up to this.

this is the key to have Romney Paul and Obama all on the stage at the same time. Which of these guys is not like the other. I think dems and repubs will both start noticing they can't tell which is which between Romney/Obama. And Ron Paul looks good in this case.

I'm all for a Ron Paul third party run...in fact...it's all set up for him. I may do a thread on that later.

He is trying to get the Republican nomination for a reason...he has more support on the right than he does the left.

And a lot of Republicans just don't like Romney, who will most likely be the nominee...so Paul will pull those people from the Republicans.

People keep saying Ron Paul will pull a lot from the Democrats...but open primaries are not showing that at all.

Good point, CRAAAAAAAAAAAAAPY video.

How many times/ways can you say one thing? "RP will win election because most of the GOP delegates will support him even if he doesn't get the nomination"

and the fact that "no one is talking about it"


HE MADE THOSE 2 POINTS FOR ALMOST 20 MINUTES. terrible radio show host IMO.

I'm all for RP winning, believe me, but the video was just annoying.

Great video.

It seems to be well understood by people who know politics, realize the next POTUS will be Ron Paul or Obama, just by understanding the math. With that said I am praying and hoping he takes advice from the people around him and goes for the independent nomination.

Do you see any other nominee that could get democrat votes other than Ron Paul, seriously?

Not many choices here and you should know. It's either Ron Paul or Obama, there is no other alternative. So if Ron doesn't with the GOP and doesn't go third party, we all know who's gonna bring more CHANGE to the constitution and American rights.

I will support and vote for Paul if he runs independent. I will never vote republican or democrat again, they both have sold out the American public. Both parties are too big to fail, so what a joy it would be to see them fall.

I am surprised to see that some people here believe that an election result is decided by the actual votes cast...

Surely you can see how RP has been kept away from any possibility of ever being the GOP candidate when he is obviously the peoples choice, do you really think they would let him be elected as a 3rd party candidate?

Seriously, some people here need to wake the # up, Obama has been picked for a second term, and by the end of that there will no longer be elections in the US so it wont matter

He hasn't even win a caucus yet, what makes you think he will get the nomination?. Delusion.

Actually the GOP controlled the WH 5 out of the past 8 terms. I know 5 out of 7 sounds better for your point but the 8 th is past halfway. And no 3rd party will ever win no matter how many Paulites make up Internet posts to get his name on somebody's screen.Youre headline is an outright lie no matter how nice it would be if real.
You see this making up of posts all over the net. Paulites smother Yahoo Q&A with this stuff every election cycle. If he gets the nomination great but no way he's taking a 3rd party win and Perot was paid well and his ego stroked to get klinton into office.

What Perot did was borderline treason

If it weren't for the 9 people in ron paul's back yard that voted for him......he wouldn't even be in congress....paul doesn't have a shot in hell to win the nomination. no one but his lunatic pot smoking followers support him.

Besides which,BHO has already been selected for a 2nd term.The dissaray of the GOP who know full well how hard even a cohesive campaign will be should make that obvious.That idiot McCain proved that in 2000

This belongs in the joke section.

Seriously.

He won't run third Party, his son is climbing the ladder in the GOP. The GOP head declared Ron Paul a "Good Republican" when prodded on the subject on numerous occassions.

He'll be lucky if he gets a speaking spot at the convention that isn't at 1am when the crickets are chirping.

Whenever I see these thread topics claiming Ron Paul will win the nomination I am convinced many Ron Paul supporters are completely delusional. What planet are these guys on? Paul is up to a whopping 50 delegates now. Romney has ten times that number. Santorum has five times that humber. Gingrich has almost three times that number. But somehow we're supposed to believe that Paul has Stealth Delegates, unknown and unseen by the rest of the world, who will come out of the woodwork and give the nomination to Paul.

Not that I'm happy with any of the other candidates. Like another poster here said, they don't seem to be trying very hard and the field is dismal, so dismal that I might even buy into a conspiracy theory on that score giving the election to Obama.

But Paul winning? Get a clue, people.

Ron Paul is just an interesting curiosity, he's not part of the political machine and unfortunately that rules him out as a viable candidate. People will elect from the standard two choices, will probably pick a Republican, and... here's the sad part- will expect things to change because of it. We're like a kid standing in front of an adult that has both hands behind their back, they're asking us if we want the left hand or the right but we're clueless that behind their back they're only holding one object and they're just going to move it to whichever hand we choose, thus giving us the illusion that we just picked something.
