In the latest Reason-Rupe survey, respondents who self-identify as Republicans were asked if they were voting today in the 2012 Republican primary for president, which of the following candidates would they favor? Ron Paul and Mitt Romney tied for first place among Republican respondents aged 18-29 with 19 percent each. Older Americans are most likely to favor Mitt Romney or Rick Perry. Young Americans are also more likely than older Americans to say they do not know for whom they will vote, at 22 percent.
My name is Daniel Herrera and I am the president and founder of Young Americans for Liberty! I live in Washington D.C and I am a HUGE Ron Paul supporter. I pieced together clips that expose the Patriot Act and I was going to play this during our recruitment day (This coming Saturday.) We also have 500+ constitutions to give out to people and I wanted some feedback from you guys. What do you think?
2012 Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul's 2008 campaign manager Kent Snyder died bankrupt at the age of 49 because he couldn't get health insurance due to a pre-existing condition. The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur explains.

They say that China will become old before it becomes rich.
This is because of the one child policy, at some point the ratio of old to young people means the population becomes top heavy. More people of working age will have to support those unable to work. Much of the wealth will go on dependency.
Looking at the most recent Gallup poll it looks like something parallel will happen to Ron Paul. His ideas will become mainstream when he is long gone.
The Times-Delphic - Young Voters favor ‘Refreshing’ Candidate - Ron Paul is, "more in-line with young people".Submitted by rp311 on Sun, 08/28/2011 - 22:18
It’s hard to believe it is that time again — campaign season.
One candidate who is popping up again from the 2008 presidential election is Ron Paul, a registered Republican who flies under the libertarian banner. Paul has become a favorite amongst students on the Drake University campus and across the states.
“I don’t just like him; I absolutely love him,” sophomore Benjamin Levine said.
Rachel Caufield, associate professor of politics and international relations, said she is not that surprised that students are supporting Paul.
“I think Ron Paul is refreshing, and as a libertarian he’s probably more in-line with young people,” Caufield said.
