Ron Paul Republicans Take Over the SenateSubmitted by Fantasia Razorhiney on Fri, 11/30/2012 - 13:17
November 5, 2014
Yesterday’s Senate races ended in a surprise outcome causing many of the old Republican guard to question their future in the GOP and left Democrats wondering just how this happened. There were 33 of the 100 Senate seats up for grabs and Ron Paul Republicans took every one. Blue state ran red as Republicans took Oregon, Delaware, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Mexico and Rhode Island with an unquestionable majority of the vote. Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada was effectively trounced ending his 27 years in the Senate.
With 2014 elections solidly in the hands of this diverse but united and focused group, Washington speculation is running rampant over their possible influence in the 2016 Presidential election. With so many on the hill now scrambling for the new libertarian vote by adopting the Ron Paul Philosophy, it is without a doubt they will be the major players in 2016.
So exactly how were these Libertarian learning Republicans able to change the face of politics today?
Let’s fill in the blank and make this fictional future article a reality. Can we make this happen? Can we work together strengthening the grassroots effort? What is the strategy? What can individuals do to help? Who are our candidates? My fellow RP ideologist lets finish this articles and write a new history. What do you think?
Edited to add:
I did not realize my post would illicit such negative responses. I was attempting to mock the media and at the same time start dialog or people thinking about this subject. I don’t care what party the person represents; who we are supporting as long as they are supportive of the Ron Paul ideology. So in hopes of moving this forward below is a list of the states with Senate seat races in 2014. To get an idea of what I was hoping for I went ahead, took a leap of faith and added a name I’m assuming most here would agree with, some impressive young Congressman in Michigan. I think it would be great if we could encourage those people to run for Senate who we know represent what we would like to see in the Senate. Anyone know what state Judge Napolitano lives in? The second list is incumbents and challengers who are running at this time. Is there anyone on there already who is worth backing? I have started looking at some of them and to say the least scary we have work to do!! Add your input, lets discuss and debate this, I’ll update names.
