Yes, yes, and yes. I still continue to believe that Ron Paul will win. He has in a way, he will always be the person that I look up to and has changed my life. Yes, Trump has some authoritarian leanings, but he was the closest to all candidates on both sides, (with the exception of Rand of course, who was my first pick...it's just not his time, and he is a great asset to the Senate.) The_donald subreddit was powerful, just like these forums were in 2012 and especially 2008, but as most of us have learned, huge rallies and online support doesn't translate a large amount of votes. I had the fuzzy feels on election night, but one thing i've learned is not to get your hopes up, even though I knew Donald was going to win early on in the evening, I was still pessimistic, but I was so devastated with the voting results despite the money bombs, straw polls, fund raising, and memes that we pumped out. It's been 10 years for me. I fought hard for RP, and I still do, ...we have a long way to go, but I think this is a start. This thread brought one of the biggest smiles on my face on election night.
One comment made me chuckle "Donald Trump is Ron Paul's Revenge on the Republican Party"
