I truly think Ron Paul will win. Every part of his campaign so far has been genius. He knows this is his last chance at presidency and he has obviously been preparing for this last shot. I think he has a few tricks up his sleeve still since he has been laying low since Rick dropped out. I think we can all agree he is a very smart man and he is going about this nomination in a very strategic fashion. Only time will tell.

I love your attitude, and I think if it becomes clear that the people's choice is Ron Paul and we don't all do everything possible to "reject" the notion that Ron Paul has no chance, then perhaps it's over. We need to keep spreading the word, and really find out who our family, friends and neighbors support, so if this election is stolen we have a frame of reference.

That old saying "never discuss politics or religion" is bunk, if there is ever a time to talk politics it is now !!!

Also I believe that Obama did have one good idea, and that is transparency! The idea that voting be private gives birth to secrecy and manipulation. I believe everyone needs to shout out proudly for whom they voted! No chance for monkey-business that way!

Ron Paul has a chance at the National Convention because of the delegates. I hope he does very well and is the nominee because he will eat Obama's lunch. It would be like a High School Basketball player playing a game against a NBA star. He has much more experience and is not a novice at this stuff. Go Ron Paul! We need him to be president if we are to have any chance of correcting this messed up system where our rights are being stripped away!

Absolutely, some of the nonscence going on with Ron Paul delegates is outrageous, and we all need to inform each other, cause let's face it, MSM is a false reality.

I would like to see him get just one televised debate with Obama and Mitt.
Let all the sleepers see there is a better choice.

Ron Paul is a big force

Ron Paul might be striking out in his pursuit of the Republican presidential nomination, but the activist energy his campaign unleashed in Minnesota is positioning one of his followers as the party's unlikely favorite to take on U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar in November.
Kurt Bills is a rookie state representative from Rosemount and a high school economics teacher. Until he made a late and unexpected entry into the race in March, Bills was never mentioned as a Republican prospect to challenge Democratic incumbent Klobuchar. But in recent weeks, an increasing number of Republicans have pegged him as the frontrunner to get the pivotal party endorsement at the GOP state convention in May.
"I think we're seeing Kurt Bills picking up some real steam in the last few weeks," said Noah Rouen, a Republican political consultant who hasn't endorsed a Senate candidate. Bills recently unveiled endorsements from more than 30 Republican colleagues in the Legislature, far outpacing the backing touted so far by the other two serious GOP Senate candidates.
Before Bills got in, Republican buzz was building around the campaign of Pete Hegseth. The young, handsome Army veteran from Stillwater has ties to national Republicans and a service record that includes stints in Iraq and Afghanistan. He previously served as national spokesman for a veterans group that advocated the 2007 military surge in Iraq, and appeared best positioned to tap into a national GOP donor base that will be vital to helping offset Klobuchar's huge financial advantage.
By contrast, the amiable, sleepy-eyed Bills looks and comes across as every bit the suburban public schoolteacher and wrestling coach that he is. But he's also a Ron Paul supporter, having endorsed the libertarian Texas congressman prior to Minnesota's presidential caucus in early February. Paul has since returned the favor, endorsing Bills for Senate. That matters, because in recent weeks many of Paul's well-organized supporters have been elected as delegates and alternates to the state convention - in other words, the people who will make the GOP endorsement.
"We're hearing that 40, maybe 45 percent of delegates, maybe more than that are going to be Ron Paul people," said Mike Osskopp, Bills' campaign manager. "It's going to be a significant number."
A spokeswoman for the Minnesota Republican Party said it was difficult to say how many Paul backers would be among the convention delegates and alternates, but their ascent has been the subject of much recent talk in party circles. Last weekend, Minnesota's Republican National Committeewoman Pat Anderson published several tweets about Paul backers "sweeping" delegate elections at several of last Saturday's district conventions.
"Ron Paul Libertarians took the Republicans out of the Minnesota Republican Party today," Katie Nadeau, a party activist, tweeted that day.
Hegseth and Dan Severson, the other Republican candidate, have sought to marginalize Bills by raising questions about Paul. It's a strategy that risks alienating Paul's supporters, but in recent days Hegseth has become more aggressive on the subject.
"What we say very openly and blatantly is that the Ron Paul establishment is taking control of the party," Hegseth said. "They've handpicked Kurt Bills, and they're hoping they can take over the party. We want to give voice to the people who are being boxed out, people who've worked for the party for 10 or 20 years and for the first time they're not going to be delegates."
Severson, a former state representative from Sauk Rapids whose views align more closely with Hegseth, said Paul's libertarian views wouldn't sit well with a larger sample of Republican voters. "He supports legal marijuana, he's not that big on the marriage amendment and he's not that opposed to Iran getting a nuclear weapon," said Severson, who ran as the Republican candidate for Minnesota secretary of state in 2010 but lost to the Democratic incumbent.
For his part, Bills said he believes he can appeal to both Paul supporters and Republicans with qualms about him.
Still, Bills has embraced several of Paul's pet issues. He wants to cut federal spending deeply, and has introduced legislation to make gold and silver coins legal tender in Minnesota. He wants the U.S. military to withdraw from Afghanistan in short order, and to reserve for Congress instead of the president the power to declare war on another country.
That raises red flags for some more traditionally minded Republicans. Paul Brandmire, a St. Cloud truck driver recently elected a state convention alternate, said he considers Paul's foreign policy views to be "dangerous and naive."
"You can't lock yourself in at home," said Brandmire, who supported Rick Santorum for president and is undecided in the Senate race. "You need someone policing the street, and that's what the U.S. is. Like it or not, we're the world's policeman."

I doubt he thinks he can win. His intention appears to be to spread his message and build up a good platform for his son Rand in the coming years.

I was just about to say the same thing, if Ron Paul can make it to the point to have a televised debate with "thing 1 and thing 2" I believe he would have the American's support by a landslide. Debates are really telling, and I would hope every American would listen and react, it would be difficult to "cover up" such overwelming support I believe he would have.....

Agreed. I think a debate between Obama and Paul would be incredible. They both know their stuff, and speak from different sides of the equation. It would be fascinating.

Yeah, it really would be....although none of the hardcore questions I want addressed are likely to get answered...but one problem at a time...lol...

No matter the outcome, Dr. Paul will be a historical figure. I am honored to have been witness to this man, albeit only online.
Much respect.

Why do we give politicians these funds? I see so much support for various political parties and leaders; they will do this and that for us... So we give them funds hoping that they might just be honest or live up to their hype. Why give funds to some rich people when we could instead use that money to do good without them taking their cut. I do think Paul is America’s best choice but I think there is too much hope of politicians when instead people need to start working together.

I attempted to donate to Ron Paul's campaign but apparently you have to be an American citizen.

Of course, that seems totally right and for obvious reasons but I would argue that what happens in American politics affects the world, especially Australia since we have signed agreements with the U.S.. As an "ally" we can be called on at any time to be used for any sort of military assistance. I think it's called the "Booty Call Agreement" or something like that.

Since U.S. politics directly affects my life, shouldn't I be able to offer some contribution to the candidate I feel is best suited? Isn't that democracy?

I guess the "Booty Call Agreement" makes no promises to call us the next day, for us to make a booty call or for the U.S. to have any respect for us or allow us to have any dignity but we signed it anyway. Maybe they should call John Howard over to fix their economy for them.

i'd love to see Romney and Paul hold rallies in separate 50 or 100k stadiums, something really big so it's real hard to fake

Then just see the streets melt down while Ron Paul fills up no prob while Romney is sitting in a ghost stadium struggling to see where his "supporters" are actually sitting.

I'm in the UK but i have asked many of my US friends
"Have you ever actually heard 1 single person talk about Romney and how they support him?"

the answer is always NO, not one single person i've spoken to says anyone they know supports Romney, it's just a farce.

If there was a true vote i have no doubt that Ron Paul would landslide it.

edit: had to add the Mitt Romney parody lol

I agree that anyone who thinks Ron Paul doesn't have a chance has been listening to the MSM, even if subconsciously. Paul has more loyal supporters than any other Republican candidate has had thus far in the race, even though you wouldn't know it from what the MSM reports. Paul has consistently had many more people show up to his events than for any other candidate, which should tell you something. He knows that the establishment, including the MSM, is against his bid for the presidency, yet he has the tact and character to avoid the mudslinging, even though it would be true.

As much as I dislike some of his policies, I do prefer him over Obama or the other GOP candidates. Will he get the nomination? NOPE! But he will remain to be a difficult challenge for Obama now and during the general election, whether the mainstream media recognizes it or not (Actually, MSNBC commentators have made the point he is one of Obama's top challengers multiple times).

I have to say though, I only remember the 2000, 2004, and 2008 elections (I'm a young one lol) and this is by far the most interesting, entertaining, and at the same time annoying election in recent memory.

EDIT//

OK, the 2008 election was actually the most annoying. Nothing was more obnoxious than hipsters running around praising Obama (I too liked him, but didn't vote for him in the general election).

I wonder how they feel now.
