Actually, Ron Paul does rather poorly compared to other 2nd tier candidates in match-ups against Hillary and other Democrats. Brownback and Huckabee are both within single digits of Hillary. http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/favorables/election_2008_democratic_candidates_running_in_2008_presidential_election

I guess neocons and neocon-liberals are the picture of sanity then, eh?

Ron Paul has been around for a long time down here in Texas. The fact is, heâ€(image) s batshit crazy and always has been. He is sort of like a stopped clock,youknow, right occasionally, the rest of the time just disfunctional and totally wrong. Comment by RonCantrell — July 28, 2007 @ 2:30 pm
I've also read on this intrawebs that he's racists and an isolationist. Can you give more insight?

Darel, I sense your passion--keep it going. At the end of the day you will at least be able to to look at the man in the glass and say: "I did my part- I tried to part of the solution!" The rest... well, they can keep playing the propagandized "numbers game". As long as I vote with my conviction, I will have never wasted my vote. This in my opinion is the difference from a leader versus a follower. I hope some day, that my vote will give others permission to vote for their convictions and the not, the lesser of two evils. I don't need my past or present vote recognized in some politician's biography (ehh hmmm), it is in my heart always. Democracy is being allowed to vote for the candidate you dislike least. ~Robert Byrne

Well, I said yesterday the economy will wilt, oil will rise and bank stocks will get whacked. No doubt in my mind people will look for an alternative as time presses on, its only getting worse and the only one who told you about this is Ron Paul. 300 points today picked up a few more disgruntled voters, tired of counterfiet money being printed for these foreign causes. Wait a few more months and you will be amazed at the state of the US economy, brought to you by incompetent leaders not following the constitution. Illegal wars,and oil and military defecit spending does not make a good economy. Ron, if nominated will win in a landslide like Reagan, any other necon will lose in a landslide.

I agree Mataconis. But I am elated about the new group of Libertarians surfacing, and the growing group of Republicans who are awakening from their slumber, and remembering what happened in 1994. I'm so sad about our country. The experiment is way off course. Like Jefferson said, If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be. The people who vote in our country are ignorant. They vote for what they are told is in their own interests, not because they understand what the consequences or results of their vote is. Everyone is an idiot. What can we do?

I don't believe 30% of people are even aware of Ron Paul yet, so these poll numbers are encouraging to me. If he does win the nomination, people will know who he is and he stands an excellent chance of defeating Obama or Clinton.

To Amy Great point about generation Y. I just gave a speech at the College of Wiliam and Mary in Va about the reasons to vote for Dr. Paul. I had listed a free pizza party and did this event alone but with three others helping. We had 40 kids fill out the form for voting and i recorded clips of of youTUBE of Paul and the people loved him. Later that afternoon I went to a metal concert and the band speaks out about the New World Order I think I counted 120 at the show and the band who I know gave me 10 min to talk about freedom of speech and music and told them about Ron Paul... I had 52 kids ages 21-24 who gave me their contact info and they want to be a part of my extended Ron Paul group. Folks I'm telling you all you have to do is take action and spread the word and things will happen. The band and I are going to hold a concert for Ron Paul to raise cash. I know for a fact during the concert we raised just over $300 which is small but one of the members whipped out a laptop and kids were donating $15-20 bucks. The band members think they can help raise $4,000. Now keep in mind I'm a business owner in my early 40's. So Amy I share this with you and others to confirm Amy is correct about your earlier posting. To end Paul isn't a hard sell at all. Can you imagine what a hard sell Rudy would be to the y crowd? I simply introduced Paul as the coolest grandpa they would ever vote for. It seemed to work. In closing I'm really thankful for your postive ideas and views. You bring more to this post then Doug ever did. If your ever in Va you will have do dinner with my girldfriend and I. Live well, Darel

Darel- I have read NSPD-51, as well as the most recent EO signing on 7/17/2007. This topic would require its own thread!! Peace!

RE: RON PAUL, THE POLLS AND REALITY. I don't see the big problem with Dr. Paul's polling numbers. The fact that he is actually being mentioned alongside Hillary and Obama now(i.e. scary enough to be considered a viable contender - even if just to be shot down) is frightening the bejesuz kryst out of EVERY candidate - on both sides of the aisle. Remember, people of America, there are 15 MORE MONTHS TO GO before elections. If RP has risen this high exponentially in just two quarters, well... His polling numbers might be considered disgraceful if he was a media-drenched front-runner (yo, McCain!) but this is a Dark Horse, sprinting up the outside of the curve; someone who has been marginalized by the Darth Media whores who are bought out by the same corporations funding the front runners. He should realistically NOT EVEN BE ANYWHERE NEAR H OR O - but he is! I see that polling glass as half full. I'm a bigger cynic than most of the RP fanatics, but these polls are still STRAW (which is, to the young readers, another dumb euphemism meaning HAVING NO BEARING WHATSOEVER TO THE OUTCOME OF THE REAL ELECTION). If there are other obstacles at work - besides blood money/lies money funding the front runners and their saturation advertising, I'd like to know, sincerely. But basing the concept of winning or losing on STRAW POLLS is starting to twist my knickerbockers. Visit my Ron Paul Page and Leave A Comment - I'd love to hear from other supporters. http://www.thedunmore.com/Writings_RonPaul-PresidentialCandidate2008.html

Generation Y represents approx. 65 million; approx 30 million eligible voters. This is a huge potential Ron Paul base. Ron Paul knows this! http://www.newvotersproject.org/voting-101 Plainly stated, Generation Y's hate hypocrisy-- Like, wuzup with all that constitution stuff we had to learn, it's like not real. Politicians are bogus! These kids have been "zero-toleranced" to death. Individualism is important to them, E.g. tattoos, piercing, hair colors, (ironically they resemble a collective body). Privacy is important to them. They are intelligent non-conformists. They also have no fear of destroying and starting over. Just a few things to consider before dismissing Ron Paul's potential.

When I saw this poll, I almost jumped up and started celebrating. Not only did Rasmussen include him in a head-to-head matchup (which is usually reserved for only the top 3 or 4 contenders in each party), he came out with a 20% approval rating and lower negatives than Hillary Clinton! If 20% of the people already have a positive opinion of Ron Paul, despite the limited news about him, the campaign is doing much better than anyone could have predicted. In another six months, who knows how high that rating could be? 38% rated Ron Paul negatively, but I think we can safely assume that more exposure to Ron Paul's ideas and record could bring this number down, while the negatives for Hillary Clinton aren't going anywhere.
