And wouldn’t you know it Ron Paul is rising in the poll’s. This saturday is going to be fun at the Iowa straw poll, bet you all can guess who I am voting for.[/quote]
Sure is. While I don’t think he’ll get elected he’ll probably do much better than last time. His poll numbers are already much higher than at this time in 2007 and it continues to rise. I’m a little surprised but so much the better.[/quote]
His numbers are better in some areas, not much different in others. But what’s the difference right? It’s not like he’s building momentum for 2016. He’ll be 76 on the 20th of this month. That means he’ll be 80 years old if he decides to give it yet one more try. So, who cares if he’s doing marginally better in some areas this time around? It matters not. I’m guessing the Paul fantasy ends with this primary season. [/quote]
He’s done an excellent job of spreading the message of liberty to millions. This will be his last term in political office of any kind. He’s worked hard all his life and deserves a rest. Others, either in politics, education, activism of some kind, or wherever will pick up the mantle. In fact, that is already being done.
In some ways I hope he does not get elected, in some ways I hope he does (though I’m not expecting it).
