And all this underhandedness and force-feeding of Romney is only serving to ensure another 4 years of Obama. The GOP is going to lose the election
either way, but Ron Paul actually stands a chance against Obama, and actually stands for a conservative view point, and actually embodies what the
"anti-Obama" sentiment that the GOP is counting on to win. Romney does not embody that sentiment, and Romney will not get that "anti-Obama" vote.
So, by cheating Ron Paul at every turn, they are only ensuring an Obama victory. Is it intentional? I think it is. I don't think they want a true
conservative to change the direction of the party, I think they like the fact that the differences between mainstream Dems and mainstream Reps are
getting blurred to the point that it doesn't matter who we vote for, the rich people benefit either way. We no longer have a "People's Party."
On election day in November, my vote will go to either Ron Paul or Gary Johnson if Ron Paul is not on the ballot. There are about 10-14% of the
population that feels exactly like me, and then there are 40% hardcore "R" voters that will vote R no matter what, and there are about 40% hardcore
"D" voters that will vote D no matter what.
SO, if the GOP puts up Romney, they will be losing to Obama by somewhere between 7-12% in November. It will be a huge loss. If they put up Ron Paul,
they will get somewhere between 45-55% of the popular vote and actually have a shot at winning.
If they can't see this glaring anomaly, and glaring opportunity to do something great for the country, then they deserve to lose.
