    Well, shoot. I guess I’ll make this the Ron Paul town hall thread.

    Man, that was great. Those other clowns are nothing compared to my man Ron Paul.

    Terrific Scott. For honest citizens like you and I, the Bush Administration and the Democratic Congress have punished us with the “Patriot Act” and warrantless wiretaps. For Mark Grossman, Richard Perle and Doug Feith, serial leakers of nuclear information to Turkey, Pakistan and God Knows who else, their punishment
    is…to be banished forever to accept lucrative consulting assignments?

    McCain seems to broadening his lead according to the polls…..This is AFTER he said that he didn’t care if we were there (in Iraq) another 100 years…..and even specifically referenced the continued and continuing troop levels in S. Korea…..as though it was something to be proud of…..

    Does this mean that (A) this hasn’t gotten around and McCain is just continuing his momentum….or (B) the idea of a 100 year occupation of Iraq is actually desirable (or at least reasonable) to these people…..

    Bear in mind the following:

    Libertarians, Minarchists, and even anarchists elected to go to this state because of their basically libertarian views…

    Pat Buchanan….on a largely “Come Home America” (troops out now) platform (granted also anti immigration) did very well in this state in both 1988 and 1992……are these Buchananites now following McCain? If so, for what possible reason?

    McCain scares me, he’s another clueless warmonger, it once again illustrates that the only republican who could beat Obama or Clinton would be Ron Paul but the republican supporters cannot see this and will instead elect to go with a dead horse like Romeny or Hukabee.

    Further…..Rassmusen had RP at 14% Saturday (about 4 pts over other polls)…today they have him at 8%. Oddly, over 80% of RP supporters are wholly committed to RP as opposed to about 65% of other candidates supporters are committed in their support. Thus a drop from 14% to 8% (about 40%) seems implausible….. Clarify…

    Unfortunately, Ron Paul has suffered from the rise of Huckabee and McCain. The media has flocked to those two and this has stolen
    much of Ron’s thunder. If he can’t get at least a strong third in New Hampshire, it’s time to gear up for a Third Party run.

    Off topic of sibel edmonds but in light of the recent incident in the strights of hormuz it’s worth noting what ron paul has said many times

    This would account why RP is NOT rising in the polls.

    This does NOT explain why he is dropping.

    I’m not that confident he wants to run third party….if so, would it be Independent…..Libertarian…..Constitution….It might mean he would have to give up his congressional seat….Would he run as a Republican for his House Seat….and an Independent in the Presidential? Could he do this…. Would he run for BOTH the presidential and his house as an Independent…. At 72 does he need this shit?

    Could he get into the debates?

    The media would likely set some sort of standard that would exclude him. They, of course, would gladly put Bloomberg in it if he were to run. Look at all the free coverage he has received. They like to hype some of these people before they even announce. They pretty much beg some of them to run. I think the hype machine has been behind Hillary and McCain for over a decade now. The other anointed ones have been receiving hype for a number of years too.
