I agree with you, and even

I agree with you, and even Chris Wallace & Brit Hume mentioned that recently. But I look at the sentiment of republican voters. Most are undecided with the current crop of candidates. That's the group we need to tap into. But the only way to reach them is for the campaign to assert themselves into the fray -- otherwise no one will know Ron's positions fully.

In '08, it was similar, but the great success then was that that was Ron's first campaign with the advent of the internet. So young people like myself were able to look up youtube videos and forum posts and things like that. In other words, Dr Paul and his campaign didn't have to actively assert themselves as much, because we tech saavy people could just look him up and get a much better view of his positions than those sham debates would allow for.

Now he has that solid support, but in order to win the nomination he has to reach the average republican, and the only way to do that in my opinion is by getting more aggressive to make sure he is heard just as much as the others. The average republican voter just watches the debates and fox news and maybe one or two shows on other networks. For instance, I told one neocon that Ron Paul got the most donations from active duty military than all the other republicans combined and he said "what? i don't believe that. then how come fox news didn't report on it??" I bet if that fact alone were more widespread, Ron's numbers would increase quite dramatically.

As for us, yes, we are the most solid group of supporters for any candidate by far. But I know that most republicans are afraid of at least some libertarian positions, and the only way to assuage that fear is for Ron to explain and defend it like he does best.
