Ron Paul rockstar

I recently responded to a comment posted on Business Insider which purported that Ron Paul hadn't won a single state and was basically a loser. We all know from any of the recent events that we've gone to, that the groundswell is getting enormous -and exciting (and that Aimee Allen song seems to get better each time). It seems like every event has folks running, many for their first time, for local positions, delegate spots, or talking about the latest Ron Paul republican that is running for this or that. I hope you don't mind me sharing a short response to a negative post -and, if you feel that it's applicable, feel free to use parts or modify as needed...

Funny, for a loser, he was able to win his congressional seat back in 1996 when Newt and Bush went out of their way to fund and promote his opponent (http://www.examiner.com/article/newt-gingrich-tried-to-preve...) -and kept that congressional seat ever since, usually with over 80% of the vote. He went on to pass the Audit the Fed bill, one of the most important legislative accomplishments in modern history, exposing the Federal Reserve's plundering of over $16 Trillion over 2 years (compared the a total national debt of ~$15 Trillion) backdoored to connected bankers, bankers wives, and foreign entities.

He's now, as a candidate for President, won Iowa, Maine, Nevada, and possibly 8 or more other states -and managed to stay in the black throughout the whole process. Thousands have been attending his rally's over the last month which end up looking more like rock concerts -with a lone 76-year old man as the rockstar. Upwards of 10,000 came to see him in Northern California a couple weeks ago and over 5,000 showed up at Cal State Fullerton with no more the 48 hours notice. As many as 100,000 are rumored to be showing up to an upcoming actual Ron Paul rock concert in Florida. Drive through Austin, California, or Arizona and you'll see Ron Paul signs. Good luck finding a sign or so much as a sticker for any other candidate. Recent caucus conventions in Missouri, Maine, Oklahoma and Arizona (among others) have been among the most exciting events of the whole political season -fist fights, fakes delegates, faked documents, helicopters, police, and arrests, long-term incumbents embarrassingly booed off the stage -and all of it caught on camera. But, sure, Paul is the loser...
