Well the primaries will be under way in a year. While I have major disagreements with him, I think Ron Paul is pretty much our only hope of avoiding total destruction during the period from 2012 to 2016. That means the most dangerous people in America right now are Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin and, perhaps worst of all, Donald Trump.
I'm convinced that if he gets the nomination, RP will stand a good chance in the general election since he will create a real contrast and make people feel like they have an opportunity to vote for an actaully good candidate as opposed to the lesser of the two evils. Getting the nomination will be the hard part. I am encouraged by the fact that the media seems to be a lot more friendly toward him than now than they were in 2008.
The country has changed intellectually since the last election and is potentially more open to his ideas now than it was just two or three years ago. The neoconservatives' grip on the Republican party has also weakened since the last election, which is another plus. What do you guys think?
