Romney Supporters Gradually TurningSubmitted by Riles Drey on Tue, 03/20/2012 - 17:30
I just recently spoke to a client of mine who knows I'm a big Paulista. He's been a Romney guy since 2007, constantly touting his business/executive experience and that he's the right guy to pull us out of the mess we're in. I don't know what prompted it, but he came into my office today and told me how his sales were down about $1MM year over year. He said we can no longer afford to play around the periphery with half measures, we need "radical change". Of course this was music to my ears, because the only one promoting radical change in this race is Ron Paul. I said "You already know where I stand on this, I think Ron Paul is the only candidate who can turn the tide against massive government overreach and crony capitalism. Romney has all of Wall Street in his back pocket. It will be very difficult for him to avoid taking marching orders from the very people who got him elected."
He agreed with me and said the only way he'd still consider voting for Romney is if he brought Ron Paul on as his running mate. However, in the absense of that possibility, he said he was now supporting Ron Paul.
Folks, this is an establishment Republican and he's now an RP supporter. We are winning, we just can't get discouraged and hang our heads when we don't get media coverage or when the establishment tries to derail us with fraud. We need to press forward with the movement because it's so much bigger than one man. The shills might be able to steal a few votes, but an idea whose time has come is too powerful to be stopped.
Keep the faith.
