This is perfect

We all know Santorum has no juice behind his campaign and no legs beyond Iowa. But if he beats Newt and Perry, he basically takes them out of the race, which opens the door for Ron Paul in South Carolina and the South, in general.

Perry has lots of money still, but not so for Newt...

Perry still has MILLIONS in his account, so he can afford to stick around for a while longer, but not so for Newt (unless he taps his OWN money, which I don't see him doing). And given the fact that NEITHER of these two will be on the VA ballot (or maybe several others), January is going to tell the tale.

But a STRONG win for Ron in Iowa, STRONG second place (or better...wink, wink) in New Hampshire would put Ron on a major roll through the south for sure!

He may best Romney too.

I can't wait for Tuesday

I took Wednesday off so I can stay up late :-)

Real eyes realize real lies

We want our country back

Every year is a year for Ron Paul!

After reading the poll results...

...I am very skeptical of this poll. It is what it is and Tuesday will tell the story, but some of the numbers don't make sense. We ALL know that Paul supporters aren't changing thier mind. Maybe 1 out of 100 might, but this poll says only 25% of Paul supporters are committed to Paul? I don't think so. That stat alone tells me this is bogus info.

Anyhow, the Santorum "surge" is I think a mirage. Doesn't make sense. A guy like Santorum going from nothing to top dog in one week...really? I call BS!

Let's keep working till the last minute, and not get down...I think Tuesday looks good for us!

It's now or never...time to hit the streets and spread the truth!

there were HUNDREDS of thousands...

...of zombie-like "evangelical" so-called "Christians" being TOLD this morning, FROM the PULPIT, to caucus for Sanitorium. Don't think they might not!!

(No offense to the religion, as I myself am a strict Fundamentalist, albeit not of the fascistic variety.)

It is better for us to have

It is better for us to have Santorum come in 2nd, because he has ZERO support in New Hampshire and will take steam away from Romney..

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

How I would answer the unelectable question

If I am unelectable then so is Romney because we are at a virtual tie and all the other candidates are less than unelectable because they are polling less than I.

Remember the poll is mostly

Remember the poll is mostly OLDER republicans.

Democrat 6%
Republican 76%
Independent/Other 18%

This is intense.

This is intense.

Gingrich's support

Went to Santorum. Thats what it looks like. He picked up the christian bigot votes.

I agree... it still will be

I agree... it still will be a battle to get those "old republican" voters who votes according to what the media tells them...

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

Yea, back to work

We are fooling ourselves if we think we are just going to "pick" up votes easily. It has and always will be an uphill battle. No one is just going to jump two feet in to supporting Dr. Paul. They have been trained otherwise. I doubt we lost a lot of votes, its just that when supporters of one establishment guy realize their guy is a conman, they just go to the next conman that the media presents, skipping over Paul.

Let's hope Santorum comes in

Let's hope Santorum comes in 2nd and beats Romney and Paul first..

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

Paul still leads.... !!

Paul still leads.... !!

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

But it's close enough...

...for the GOP establishment to steal it and give it to Mittens (or, even worse, Sanitarium).

I expect that turnout and commitment will favor Paul, giving him a big enough margin to prevent them from stealing it easily.

We can destroy Santorum in NH

Would be nice if Perry would pound him a couple of days in IA on the fact that he voted 5 times to increase the deficit.

Ron should do a family ad and a troops ad. His family is far greater than San Torum and everybody loves the troops
