Ron Paul, now more electable than ever

Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, has a good chance of winning his party’s nomination and the presidency next year, yet few in the media (mainstream or otherwise) seem to notice.

Ensuring that voters understand this is essential to having an informed discussion about the direction the country should take in the coming years. This is especially true because of the frequency in which people write off the congressman since they consider him unelectable.

Before we begin, I should note that I write this as someone who does not agree with Paul on everything, does not belong to any group advocating his election...I also write this, however, as someone who shares his passion for promoting personal and economic freedom and as someone who believes he is probably the only presidential candidate from any party that has a chance of doing net good while in office...

Side Note: The Youth for Ron Paul at IU chapter signed up over 100 new students when they had their first table! Here's a photo of their first Call Out meeting: http://a2.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/297517_243550...

The talking heads know that

The talking heads know that Ron Paul is very electable this is why they try and marginalize him at every turn.

They've already received their marching orders on who to push onto the American people. And it isn't Ron Paul.

You would think people would have wised up by now and would be able to recognize when they are being led down the primrose path of more of the same.

Townhall Meetings a tad off subject

What's happening on the "townhall meetings" front? I haven't seen any videos and love to see what the "undecided" are asking Ron Paul and if they're waking up. Anyone?

Hear hear

I agree. This is how to take it to the people, and lining up a ton of these could give Paul a Reagan-style victory.

Michael Nystrom's fists can punch through FUD.

IU's groups are top notch

Check out the photo of their first call out:

I'll add it to the post...

Very nice from Mid West. Hope

Very nice from Mid West. Hope it spreads..

"yet few in the media (mainstream or otherwise) seem to notice"

This is the most glaring truth and the one that the general population needs to recognize.

It's OK if the media doesn't like him - it really is a good thing - stop letting the media think for you!

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.
Ron Paul - The Revolution

Setting a good example is a far better way to spread ideals than through force of arms. Ron Paul

pick your battles

The myth of mass media accuracy is a SUPERB target for a fight, but that's not the fight we're in at the moment. Right now we're working on a political primary campaign. Stay on (that) target.

(I'm assuming people here are wanting to get Dr. Paul elected; for any for whom that is not true, the above warning does not apply.)

What is begun in anger, ends in shame.

Send this fellow

a friendly comment. Let him see that supporting Ron Paul will win you a lot of friends around the Country.

Maybe there ought to be an orchestrated effort to Share (FB, Twitter, Google, etc, via "Like" buttons) these articles as a means of encouraging the authors to keep it flowing!
