As much as we complain how would Ron do if he was suddenly thrust into the spotlight? He is a genius when he has time to compose his thoughts and spell out his answers, but let's be honest being "quick on the draw" is not his strong point yet that's what he's going to have to do if his ideas suddenly come under fire.

I really started to wonder this after I read his plan as I think potentially this could start to get him some more questions at the debates, especially once it comes down to a 2-3 man race which it likely will soon. He's made it clear he want's to get rid of things alot of people believe are good and needs better answers than just "Liberty", "Freedom", etc, ie like the DOEnergy, he needs to point out the fact that it was created to reduce oil dependency then fire back with the stats that say our oil consumption has grown drastically every year, ditto with DOEd, created to help schools yet test scores are still dropping. Basically I just hope he's armed and ready with facts and not just philosophical beliefs as I think he will get ALOT of credit for being bold and putting out a concrete plan, his answers need to be just as concrete.

I'm hoping he's got all the talking points associated with his new plan down to a T. I guess we will see tomorrow, won't we? I predict a grand debate performance with just a little bit more time given to Ron than normal.

Ron will be fine. He's been thinking about what he's talking about for 40 years. The guy's sharp as a tack.

███ knows his stuff. If he doesn't get the nomination it will be our fault for not campaigning hard enough. I'm talking about actual campaigning; door-to-door, phonebanks, fundraising, etc.

More importantly, are we ready? We will only get one shot.

He's never been more ready in his life.

You must not watch many of his media interviews. He goes into great detail when time permits. And he does all his speeches and media appearances without notes or teleprompters and all off the top of his head.

He's far more ready than you're giving him credit for.

Yes, did you see him with Wolf Blitzer today. He handled being on the spot perfectly. His last few debates have been very good as well. Ok when they actually let him speak.

I believe frothy and huntsmann won't be there tomorrow, that should get Ron some more speaking time too.

Ron Paul is more ready to be the frontrunner than any presidential candidate of the past 30 years. His ideas are consistent and logical.

Look... if you had one shot, or one oppurtunity to seize everything you ever wanted, in one moment...
Would you capture it, or just let it slip?

HE HAS TO BE. He's the only person up there that can solve our problems.

Yeah, actually, he's better unscripted and live off the cuff -- he just needs more than 30 seconds and he needs to slow down and speak more deliberately.

If RP becomes the front runner or, worse yet, wins the nomination then it suddenly gets really hard. We won't know he is the front runner first. We will find out last. We will be hit with an absolute tsunami of everything the other candidates have. Instead of picking on each other, Perry and Romney will each unleash tens of millions against us. This site will become over-run with sock puppets and agent provocateurs mixed in with new converts who don't know any better.

At each event, at each turn, the internal party machinery grown on the pus of insider relationships and donor money will rail against us.

They have not yet begun to fight.

If you went through this last time you know that you have to put in the hard yards now. Do you know Roberts rules? Do you know where your precinct leader walks his dog? Are you a precinct leader?

Are you prepared to fight tooth and nail for your precinct. They are. Their careers have been built on it. They designed the system, they defend it.

They really do fear us. They are trying to contain us at the moment but they will try to drop the hammer, hard, the moment RP looks like he might win.

He is ready for it. Are you?

If we convince America that Ron Paul is the only one who can solve our economic problems then he'll definitely be a front-runner

We have to create a need for Ron Paul

A'ole Pilikia.:)

Ron is solid on this -because it is not Ron, it is liberty. I'm absolutely sure Ron would be the first to tell you that. The guy knows the message to and fro. And everyone knows the message is golden.

Ever vigilant and no worries.
