ConsevativeHQ: Reagan won with the 'Reagan Democrats', Paul will win with the 'Paul Democrats'Submitted by emazur on Wed, 01/11/2012 - 18:06
"Ron Paul is Now the Conservative Anti-Romney Candidate"
But Ron Paul? We have been told even more adamantly, and with greater certainty, that hell will freeze over before Ron Paul wins the nomination, that he has reached his ceiling in votes, that voting for him is a wasted protest vote, that his foreign policy is to the left of Obama, not to mention that he is a disgusting and crazy racist, yada, yada, yada. And that was before they thought he was a serious threat to the established order.
The most amusing diatribe in recent weeks was the accusation that Paul was ruining the primary and caucus process with his appeal to young people, independents, and (gasp!) Democrats. We can’t let people like that into our country club! But, of course, St. Ronald Reagan did exactly that to achieve overwhelming victories, and we still refer to “Reagan Democrats,” most of whom have probably not voted Democratic since Reagan converted them. But that was then, and now is now.
