A funny thing has happened on the way to the 2008 US Presidential Elections, and itâ€™s all got to do with Web 2.0.
Ron Paul is a name many will immediately recognize, but for those who donâ€™t, Ron Paul wants to be the next President of the United States of America. Paulâ€™s platform is very, very different to most (if not all) of the other candidates, both from his own Republican Party and the Democrats. Paul is a classic conservative, a believer in small Government and a believer that the individual is more important than the State. Heâ€™s also anti-Iraq war, and in a historical sense broadly anti-interventionist as well; Paul is a candidate who believes the Monroe Doctrine is simply wrong.
Paul is also the underdog in the Presidential race, dismissed by the mainstream media and political pundits as nothing more than a kook with no hope at all. And yet if you believe online polls and surveys, Paul will be the next President of the United States. The secret recipe for Paulâ€™s every increasing support base is Web 2.0
