Answers to a few questions

Question:  Why are Libertarian politicians like Gary Johnson and Ron Paul so popular among college students? 

Answer:  Because many years from now, today's college students and their children and their grandchildren are the demographic who will still be stuck paying for all of today's spending. 

Question:  Why are Libertarian politicians like Gary Johnson and Ron Paul so popular among active military, and why do they receive such a large percentage of military political campaign donations? 

Answer:  Because active military members know that it is Demoblicans and Republicrats who are working hardest to get them killed, not Libertarians. 

Question:  In the recent New Hampshire primary, when Romney finished first, Ron Paul finished second, and Rick Santorum finished third, why did Rick Santorum claim that he actually finished second? 

Answer:  Because Santorum knows that Ron Paul is not a Republican, he's a Libertarian. 

Question:  When discussing whether or not Ron Paul will possibly run on a second-party third-party ticket, why don't the members of the Mainstream Media ever say the name of this party?  Why do they fear the "L" word? 

Answer:  Because their sources, their Rolodexes, their cell phones and their earnings potential all come from their access to Republicrats and Demoblicans.  And, as the C-SPAN crews recently recorded by accident, if a Libertarian is ever elected president, 2/3rds of the Pentagon Press Corps will lose their jobs.  Ditto for the rest of the Washington media.  There simply won't be much going on for them to write or talk about, once the initial cutbacks are in place.  Therefore, the Lamestream Media try to de-legitimize any parties except for the Crips and the Bloods.  Or whatever you want to call them. 

I hope this helps.

Ron has been doing very well for a distant second place. I'm not sure it's going to change anything.

Step 1 is winning the White House. Step 2 is appointing judges who respect the Constitution. Step 3 is rolling back Zero's nonsense. Step 4 is to begin unwinding the Old Deal.

Paul won't get nominated, wouldn't win if nominated, and wouldn't accomplish much of this if elected. He'd be too busy auditing the Fed and weighing our gold.

It took more than a century to get where we are. It won't be solved in four years by a fringe candidate.

Our government wasn't built for big changes. It takes emergencies to make small corrections, and the answer is polluted by politics.

Ron Paul would do better running for King. He should claim to be the second coming of Christ.

Nick,
One of the things I'm slowly learning about voting is that it isn't like helping to win a football game.
It's like a letter to the editor. Sending a message.

Also....there is no easy solution, no quick solution, and no painless solution. It's going to take decades.

Is the goal of this election to change directions, or to merely change drivers?

There is one party, though, where Paul could win the nomination.

This is gonna be a good year.
