If you read the comments on the Ron Paul on Delegate Math article, 99% of them are people saying they will vote for Ron Paul and NO ONE ELSE! If the GOP and/or its ‘loyal base’ choose to ignore this, Obama’s re-election will be on THEIR HANDS. They have been warned. They have been given ample opportunity to make the Paul supporters and campaign feel welcome. Paul has been proved to be the most consistent, sincere, and among the most electable (check out the polling data of Paul vs. Obama) of the GOP candidates. There is absolutely no excuse for the GOP to ignore Ron Paul and then blame him for their likely mistake.
Romney, of course is not consistent, and maybe not even sincere. His electability is widely known and accepted, but is mainly based on the media template that he is electable. Take that away and Ron Paul would surpass him.
Santorum and Gingrich on the other hand are among the most divisive, inconsistent, and insincere possible candidates of the original 9, and recently Santorum has been talking of having Gingrich as his running mate. Can you say ‘more epic of a FAIL than McCain/Palin 2008’?
Here is the comment I left on the article:
This is amazing! One negative comment out of 77 (now 78). And even that one was just bringing forth legitimate grievances and offering constructive criticism.
Just goes to show you how resilient and powerful grassroots can be, and how much leverage the Paul campaign has amongst both voters and potential delegates.
It is disappointing each time Paul doesn’t win, but that was never the strategy. Most of the votes so far have been STRAW POLLS. Now, the media can spin them enough to translate those straw polls into delegate counts, but only if we let it!
Those of you that are delegates: NEVER LET UP! NEVER GIVE IN!
Those of you that would like to be delegates: STAY LONGER THAN THE OTHERS!
Those of you that have voted already: THERE ARE OTHER WAYS TO CONTINUE YOUR SUPPORT!
Those of you that think the Paul campaign has failed: MAKE SURE YOU KNOW THE REAL STRATEGY AND GAME PLAN: DELEGATES!
Those of you that feel used by the campaign: THIS IS ABOUT MORE THAN WINNING, IT IS ABOUT THE MESSAGE: BOTH OF LIBERTY AND OF TELLING THE ESTABLISHMENT THAT WE ARE SICK AND TIRED OF THE CROOKS AND MORONS THEY KEEP SENDING OUR WAY!
Those of you that have yet to vote: PLEASE DO SO WHEN THE TIME COMES, AND LOOK INTO BECOMING AN ORGANIZER, VOLUNTEER, OR DELEGATE!
Ron Paul 2012!
