Why Republicans Don't Support Ron Paul

I clicked on the Magic Eight Ball in the middle of the blue bar and discovered this:

...Let's start with his supporters (of which I am one if you couldn't tell). If you read this from Dale Carnegie's famous book called How to Win Friends and Influence People, you will quickly notice afew of things we are doing poorly when reaching out to this group of future Ron Paul supporters. The two biggest are--Never Criticize, Condemn or Complain, and the second is-- Show Respect for the other people's Opinions--Never tell someone they are wrong. There are others as well, and if you read the link, you'll be quick to notice them. Remember that the Republican Base is not our enemy. If Dr. Paul has a chance of winning the GOP nomination, we need to INFLUENCE them.

Think about how you feel when you someone calls you a "Paultard." Don't you immediately close off and want to attack? Has anyone who ever used this term had any influence in the way you think other than strengthen your resolve to defend what you already believe? When Dr. Paul addresses the issue of "how would we feel if China were building bases in Texas" to explain his non-interventionist foreign policy, we applaud. What's the difference between this example and what we do when we attack our fellow Republicans (even if it makes you cringe to think of yourself as a Republican, you are one now if you plan to vote for Dr. Paul--and if he wins and shows people what a Republican actually stands for, you'll probably stay one for life)? How do you feel when they attack you?

The Republicans are our friends, so dont say anything negative to them while they are having your wrist twisted by an off duty police officer, or when you are elderly and thrown to the ground for practicing Roberts Rules, or changing rules at the convention in favor of a statist idiot. How quickly we forget how WE were treated by the media, by law enforcement, by the GOP. While attacking individuals may not pay off, there are plenty reasons not to be polite to those who stand against our constitution.

Always remember:
"It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds." ~ Samuel Adams
If they hate us for our freedom, they must LOVE us now....
