Ron Paul would have lost to Obama with crazy numbers. He wasn't popular in the real world. Just in the political minority at college campuses,
conspiracy theorists, and Tea Party groups. The average person had no clue who RP was.
To say Ron Paul wasn't popular is a huge overstatement. He packed not only campuses, but stadiums of people who came to listened to him. In my home
town (Baltimore) which is heavily Democrat, I saw more signs for Ron Paul then Romney or Obama.
How many people knew who Barack Obama was before the media bumped up his coverage? More people knew about Ron Paul even when the media tried
everything they could to stop his popularity growth. The media plays the biggest role in who will become the next President. Hopefully with the
internet becoming the bigger source for information, this will change.
Paul was never trying to be president. He was setting up a career for his son, hiring his other family and giving them campaign jobs with huge
salaries and setting up his own retirement fund. He played all his supporters.
Well maybe your right, but then that means he's been working on his son's career for over 30yrs of service and sticking to his guns on topics that
only he has brought to light in the world of politics.
Personally, I've always believed that Ron Paul knew how the media is ran, (in fact he told that to their face) and knew he would not be given a fair
chance to win with the GOP. However, by running on the GOP ticket he would be able to get his message out to the younger generation in hopes of
reforming the GOP to what it should be doing. It was always the message that mattered the most. Only those who got the message can understand that to
