    It is from 1964 but still rings true today.

    Off to the Ames Straw Poll tomorrow and then the Iowa State Fair. Should get my fill of politicians for awhile. So far its Bachmann for me, and I'd be really happy with a Bachmann/Paul ticket.

    Never under-estimate the ability of a socialist army in stealing an election, especially with a Billion dollar war chest. The battle has just begun!

    so which one is it...is Ron Paul pathetic, or is he not in the leading group of GOP candidates...

    either way he did not come out of the debate looking good ...except to the loyal Ron Paul supporters, who also think that Iran is not a nuclear threat

    According to the Repub pundits, he is not a leading candidate. Yet, he is the ONLY ONE that has a realistic plan for or economy, budget and Foreign Policy. I know Ron Paul's appeal is still small yet his message needs to be heard.

    The leading GOP candidates are all BIG Government politicians with very narrow appeal. As beatable is Obama is, it is looking like the GOP will shoot itself in the foot by nominating a candidate that will only appeal to older white voters thus handing the election over to Obama.

    Have you heard Obama "Speak" or "Debate"?

    Anywho, Newt won that debate in a landslide.

    If nothing else, I was highly entertained last night.

    That would be the elderly appearing, hands shaking Paul.
    And I play the Dana Carvey clip because to me, Paul comes across as an angry old white dude!
    Maybe I am the only one that see's this???
    I doubt it.


    Who does he appeal to besides you?

    Really Franco, he would get annihlated against Obama.

    The Obama campaign has already set up their ATTACK machine to personally destroy Romney as they think he will be the candidate.

    He won't though, I now beleive it will be Perry & Bachman.

    RP appeal is across all ages, gender and not just the Religious Right like Perry, Pawlenty, Gingrich and Bachmann's. There are not enough Evangelicals to get a candidate elected!

    Yes, the Obama campaign is ramping up against Romney because he does appeal the the widest spectrum of voters and presents the biggest threat to Obama. If Obama had to run against Perry, Bachmann, Gingrich, Pawlenty, Santoreum etc., Obama would win by a landslide.

    I support Ron Paul because he is the most qualified and has real solutions, not just slogans! He is also what I would call a traditional Conservative as opposed to today's big government/limited freedom GOP candidates!
