Forbes: the GOP's Paul Problem Isn't Going Away. It Also Isn't a Problem

Establishment Republicans have been eager to get past the part of the election cycle where Ron Paul has played an outsized role. Rand Paul’s recent endorsement of Mitt Romney divided libertarians, but the Paul heir’s apparent capitulation to business as usual actually underscores how the GOP faces a more complex challenge to the ideological status quo..

Absurd Analysis

Ron Paul's revolution will continue to grow more popular with all Americans.

Every effort to marginalize, ignor, or placate Paul supporters is just as distined for failure, as are Rand's efforts to placate the elite republicans. Elite republicans have no respect for Rand and his grand announcement in support of Mitt - did not even make the MSM evening or morning news. Unfortunately, he has probably limited himself to be a one term senator from Kentucky. No gain what so ever, and no big plan or strategy.

Ron Paul knows what he's marching into in Tampa. Even the brokered convention that we are hoping for may have a negative result. Our delegates have to stand firm, and may expect "enhanced" dirty tricks, making what they have seen already seem small. One possible senario could be drafting Jeb Bush for president (I don't think the elites like Mitt either) and Mitt for VP.

We have Dr. Paul, his hopes and dreams for us, and our own determined will. To say we won't make a difference is totally absurd. We will change every party and the country.

Well worth the read! TY

Interesting and logical article

not too familiar with the writer's other works,

but seems like a pretty good breakdown, from an outsider's view.

definitely worth reading, and pondering over.

good find, LetUsUnite!

Ron + Rand = two-man wrecking ball

that will shatter the GOP and allow it to be rebuilt from the ground up. This article nails it. Thanks for posting.
