From day 1 of his 2012 campaign I've been cheering Ron Paul on, posting supportive videos to my facebook page, and debating with the naysayers online and in person. I would love nothing more than to see him win the election and start working towards fixing the many problems in America today.
But then there's this tiny, cynical, part of me that thinks Ron Paul is SUPPOSED to win, and it's all just another part of the story line of this soap opera/mockumentary, and he is just gonna keep moving things forward for "TPTB".
Alot of people feel very discouraged that Obama didn't live up to the hype surrounding his 2008 campaign (myself included), not to mention the broken promises. The general public, while not always the brightest, could very well have been reluctant to buy into another "savior" being marketed to them as the next potential POTUS, so maybe reverse psychology was the name of the game this time around.
Perhaps the viral/grassroots nature of his campaign combined with the blatantly unfair media coverage is by design. When you were a child, if your mom told you that you can't have something, or you aren't allowed to do something, that's all you wanted to do. Maybe when they repeat the mantra of "Ron Paul can't win", they are in fact cuing us to say "Oh yeah? We'll see about that! VOTE RON PAUL!!!!!"
The icing on the cake will be when he splits from the GOP after the convention and wins as an independent third party candidate. Surely once that happens no one will suspect a thing! Everyone will be celebrating "We beat the system, rEVOLution!!! WOO HOO!!" Only for Ron Paul to then let us all down like Obama did.
Obviously, I will continue to believe in RP and show my support the best I can and stay positive until the day this theory is proven correct. I'm just prepping myself to not be too let down or heartbroken if it happens.
I wouldn't be scared. He didn't come out of the woodwork. He's been around for a long damn time. If he gets elected and turns to be a liar (which he wouldn't), you can't blame yourself. You'll just learn that literally nobody can be trusted.
Until then, support him and believe in him 100%.
