This is the impact from the Ron Paul 2008 campaign. Better than I ever imagined. Let's keep the juggernaut going!

I hope it burned their fingers to type it, after the crap they wrote about him.

nights not over. The larger the margin of victory, the better it will be. Also I can't wait to hear Conway's concession speech lmao...he will defintiely talk about how he doesn't regret anything at all in the campaign.
