    Count how many hundreds of thousands of votes Ron Paul is getting across the primaries and caucauses... and then consider that the average Ron Paul voter will vote 3rd party or not vote at all before casting a vote for Mitt Romney or Santorum... Especially after the crazy statements from Santorum about conservatism meaning the government regulating whats going on the in bedroom

    So by alienating RP and his votes, the GOP is instantly losing at least half a million votes come election day

    I know I will be writing ron paul in if its not on any partys ticket and so will many others

    Most of the Ron Paul supporters Ive seen have no desire to be "reached out" to. They want Ron Paul or nothing. That's their choice.

    Mitt Romney is trying. He gave Ron Paul and his supporters kudos in his speech tonight. Not that that will make me vote for him. Regardless, it's not just about Ron Paul. It's about libertarian ideas. It just so happens that Ron Paul is the only one espousing those ideas in 2012.

    This post is an example of what is so wrong with the U.S. political landscape these days. People are so busy wanting to have their personal issues catered to, that they can't assess a situation and choose the greater good.

    The greater good is not served by electing Romney/Santorum/Gingrich over Obama, or vice versa.

    I disagree. Of course, that's not a surprise.
