    Much to my personal dismay, he won't win the nomination because he's almost nobody's #2 choice amongst the current progressive/socialist GOP neocon wankers.

    All the money in the world isn't going to change that.

    I thought the reason Paul was un-electable was because he was a racist old man who hated poor people.

    Ron Paul is not going to lose because of a lack of money. Ron Paul is going to lose because of Ron Paul. He embraces a far right, and by far right I mean a libertarian-based, domestic policy and then sides with figures like Cynthia McKinney--going so far as appearing on Iranian television to denounce Israel--and Michael Moore on issues of foreign policy.

    His tendency to blame America almost exclusively for the worlds ills coupled with his complete lack of ability to rationally articulate his positions makes him simply unable to connect to mainstream Republicans, and remember he is seeking the GOP nomination. He may be gaining ground among independents and liberals, but ultimately that is irrelevant in a GOP primary.

    I am conflicted with Ron Paul, because I was a early supporter. I believe he is the only candidate bringing attention to the issue of the unregulated Federal Reserve, but I cannot reconcile his extremist, 911 truther-type conspiratorial mentality that Ron Paul spouts off in senile-like rants of vague suggestions of the government keeping you from fleeing the country to Mexico.

    Excelent diagram, and I want to use it in my web site, but I agree with first reply: no money will help us in their circus. they print it, and they are a steady customer, we are an outsider, no matter how much we can come up with. we need a strategy that I define, only that will work: imagine people in USSR would have waited for cues on state media? establishment media is the enemy, and Ron Paul is not helping by participating on that circus - he does not need them, they need HIM for credebility. I wish he understands it and slams them in the face at the right time by saying something like what I just said.

    he won't win because he's for reducing government and staying out of other country's affairs. neither party wants that.

    I doubt you were ever a supporter because you are spouting lies and half truths to make your case. You just threw that part in to lend yourself some credibility. At least be an honest hater. :eusa_liar:

    I've been on the message board for at least three years, go back and look at my posts. Listen, I am still going to vote for Ron Paul, but my point is he isn't going to be elected because he refuses to temper some of his more radical views.

    He does himself no favors excepting donations from white supremacist groups and then go on Iranian government television to renounce Israel and compare them to Nazis in their dealings with HAMAS and 'Palestinians'.

    Oh, and it is all just coincidence. All this support from White Nationalist organizations and his open renouncement of Israeli and American influence in the Middle East, the racist newsletter...

    Again, Ron Paul is going to lose because of Ron Paul.

    He is not a leader. Let me ask you a question: out of the decades Ron Paul has served in Congress how many pieces of legislation has Ron Paul authored and passed?

    But if you are going to call me a liar at least do the a little homework.
