The "Revolution" doesn't need to "end" in order to facilitate this changing of the guard, but I think to keep calling it the Ron Paul
Revolution would be intellectually dishonest. He has said several times that this movement is not about him, and yet people still swoon to him instead
of taking matters into their own hands.
"Thank God we have Ron Paul!"
Yeah, well, what'll happen when he...uh..kicks the bucket?
Ron's problems were not so much his as some of his supporters. For all of the tinfoilers out there that chanted his name, there was a daily news man
to snap shots for a cover story.
It was ironic really. For people that were afraid of the "man" so much, they were brought down because they didn't have enough foresight to
recognize that they scared a majority of people.
But in another 4-8 years, we should be ready. My own personal choice for an immediate successor would be Gary Johnson. I've read and seen some of
what he has to say and he is a very articulate speaker quite capable of taming the Ron Paul crowd. The only thing I fear is if Obama can pull
something out of his (ass) hat at the 11th hour, then if Johnson even gets the nomination, he'll be immediately wasted.
