Comment: Legitimate Strategy...

(See in situ)


Legitimate Strategy...

Yes, winning the most delegates is a legitimate strategy. The straw votes are meant to help republican insiders understand public opinion of their base. Ultimately, Republican insiders (active members) decide the nominee...it is a private party.

Unfortunately the "Republican base" is primarily motivated by media not by Republican values. This means that undermining the media domination of the election process will result in significant "blowback" during a general election.

To combat this, the campaign (not Ron Paul, because he's doing awesome) needs to simplify his message into easy to understand repetitive bullet points.

The media is going to crucify Ron Paul, you will only hear: the end of medicare, he wants to abolish social assistance, he wants to let the terrorists win, critisims of Keynesian economists...

It needs to be combated with logic and honesty, because those things are not true and we all know that Ron Paul is the hard road to avoid disaster.
