No long faces Ron Paul supporters!

Gingrich beating Romney in South Carolina is actually a good thing for Ron Paul. The delegates are getting all split up and it's going to be very difficult for Romney, or anyone to get enough, which could result in a brokered convention. Santorum will be dropping out soon as he has no money or organization to continue much further and isn't even on the ballot in 4 states. Gingrich, who is also missing from the ballot in 2 states, is going to split votes with Romney and take delegates away from him as Paul continues to pick them up little by little.

This race is a marathon, not a sprint. The campaign has a plan. They have money, organization, and grassroots support in many upcoming states like Nevada, Missouri, Maine, Minnesota, Louisiana, Wyoming, Montana, South Dakota, etc. They never expected to do all that well in South Carolina or Florida, so this doesn't hurt his campaign much at all. He will be in the race all the way to the convention and possibly steal the nomination.

Who's Rick Santorum's

votes going to go to?

This is a long way from over,

This is a long way from over, but we need to double and triple down on our efforts. We need to work harder than ever before to counteract the media bias and spread the word of liberty and the good doctor.

I know a lot of people are already making calls, but if you're not PLEASE sign up for the phone from home program and start making calls ASAP. This is our only chance to do this. By 2016 it might be too late, and I don't believe Ron would run again. It would be up to Rand and I don't know if he's quite ready to have this put on his shoulders. Maybe in 2020 when Ron's 8 years are up.

Florida will be just as difficult.

Like South Carolina, Florida will be a tough place for Ron Paul. Here, there are just so many neoconservatives who will not consider alternatives to Military America.

As a Floridian, I grieve for my state but I have faith in our country and our purpose. Hang in there with me, Paulites.

Florida is winner take all states

Too high of a risk for Paul to put money and efforts in a state where the winner takes all. Even if he came in second it would all be for nothing. The best thing Paul can hope for to happen in Florida is for Santorum to win and take delegates away from the other two. Anyway sorry Florida but were moving on.

It is better to look dumb and not be, than to look smart and not be.

They want us to quit and go

They want us to quit and go away. Don't give them the satisfaction. There will be many lost battles along the way, but if you step back and consider the larger picture, we are becoming a force with which to reckon. We have and will continue to have victories as well. Be encouraged, my friends!

bump the encouragement!

Thanks for the encouragement! Your so right! Keep up the good fight everybody, truth is on our side!

We Can't Quit.......

With these 3 clowns opposing Ron,they WILL NOT BEAT OBAMA....So it's back with Rand in 4 years....

Ron Paul'08

Yes, It's a marathon

Think how long Ron Paul has fought, many of us just began fighting 4 years ago, and now more and more have jumped on board this year!

The further we get away from DC, the better. Newt is going down in Nevada. Romney is not a happy camper either. So he'll be attacking him again soon too, but probably not until Nevada.

I can't wait to see the new ads against Gingrich... oh lordy... is he in for it. From Paul, Romney and probably Santorum.

There were three tickets out

There were three tickets out of SC. Last place wasn't one of them. If we don't win NV it's over now.

You got it wrong

The saying is: "Three tickets out of Iowa, two tickets out of New Hampshire, and South Carolina picks a winner".

Worked pretty well in 1980, 1988, 1996, and 2000, but not so much in 2008 and not at all this year.

No, you're wrong

It's about the delegates, not the popular vote.

Remember, Gingrich isn't on 3 states and Santorum is out on 4. (Or vice versa, I can't remember) Virginia has over 500 delegates. They are going to be split between Romney and Paul!!!

Virginia has 49 delegates

And Newton is not on the ballot in 2 states (Virginia and Missouri).

It only takes a second to get the correct information so please take the time before you post.

Virginia has 101 delegates,

If it is true that Ron Paul's "ceiling" is really 15% or even 20%, then even if these other guys aren't going to be on a couple of ballots -- that won't really change anything.

It just means the Mitt Romney margin would either be more lopsided, or there would be some write-in votes (or a combination of both).

The big question to answer here is that last week Ron Paul was polling in 2nd-place in S.C. at around 20%, and it looked for a brief moment that he might challenge for the #1 spot. Instead two other candidates Passed by him, and Ron Paul's numbers dropped.

Why did that happen?
What happened to the N.H. "momentum"?


Thanks to the RP supporter who posted this wonderful clip!!


Here's how it works

We get the anti-Romney protest vote in Virginia. If Gingrich is still competitive and can't write-in, his supporters would rather Paul get delegates than Romney.

In SC, there was one pollster - ARG - that showed us at 20% and we were in third (Romney 29, Gingrich 25). ARG continued to show us higher than any pollster at 19 and 18 (as recently as yesterday). Other pollsters showed us between 11 and 17. We did underperform our average slightly, but we did so in Iowa too. There is nothing mysterious. We did get a small bounce after NH and held onto some of it, but some of the soft supporters went to Gingrich in the end. And don't ask how someone can switch from Paul to Gingrich - if you don't understand how the average low-information voter makes decisions you should talk to a few of them.


I knew Ron Paul wouldn't win SC. A win here was hopeful, but just not in the game plan. All I hoped for was that one of the unelectable people would win and take delegates from Romney to prevent him from catapulting to the front.

As it's been said...this is a long war and it isn't over. As I said in another post, George Washington lost many battles in the Revolution - more than he won actually if I recall - but he won key battles that helped win the war. That's what is going on now. So keep the faith. The race isn't over.

ThankS for the big picture.

We are kicking ass

that is all that needs to be said, if our numbers are up 300 to 400% in four years, that should go up exponentially in 4 more years. If we don't take it, we still keep educating as many as we can because Rand Paul is not going to be anyone to mess with. We are paving the way and need to drop the immediate gratification response that they have pushed into Americans brains.

The R3volution requires action, not observation!!!!

Also, Romney has a ceiling of

Also, Romney has a ceiling of 30-35%, and Gingrich got a "Cain" bump because people felt bad for poor little Newty that the big-bad media was coming after him so hard. In the long run, Newt's infidelities and ethics violations are going to prevent him from getting anywhere close to the Republican nomination.

Hopefully I'm wrong about Santorum and he stays in and keeps splitting the vote and thus the delegates.
