    Default Huffington Post: Ron Paul Can Win

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/robin-..._b_939993.html

    Talks about Churchill, Labour Party, China & Long March of Mao, etc. to frame the discussion of an idea whose time has come.

    Specifically, on all the metrics that a year ago everyone accepted as useful indicators of political standing, Ron Paul is not just a front-runner but a strong one.

    First, and most directly, he does extremely well in polls. The organization of his grassroots support is not just excellent; it is remarkable, by historic and global measures. His ability to raise money from actual voters is second to none. His appeal to independents and swing voters is an order of magnitude greater than that of his competitors. Secondarily, he has more support from military personnel than all other candidates put together, if measured by donations; he has the most consistent voting record; he has the magical quality of not coming off as a politician; he oozes integrity and authenticity, and, as far as we know, he has a personal life and marriage that reflects deep stability and commitment.

    ..

    If Paul wins, it won't be because he is the kind of candidate Americans have always gone for. It will be precisely because Americans have collectively decided on a dramatically new way of doing business -- a new political and economic paradigm -- and then he'll not only have ceased to be a long shot; he'll be the only shot.

    It's hard to tell if the idea that Ron Paul cannot win in 2012 is more ignorant, in its complete lack of historical sophistication, or more arrogant, in its claim to certainty amid all the complexity of 300 million lives and the myriad issues that affect them.

    Wow, when I saw "Huffington Post" I automatically read your thread title as "Ron Paul Can't Win".
    I had to read that headline a few times to make sure I wasn't seeing things.
    Nice

    Send this to you liberal friends. But, if you're surrounded by neocons as I am, this just reinforces the idea that Ron Paul is a liberal because, "if someone at huffpo endorses him, why would any conservative?"

    They are saying that the idea that the media puts forward "He can not win" is the ignorant/arrogant view. Arrogant in that it believes it knows the way 300 million people will vote and think etc.

    Wish this article would go viral. Someone should email it to Bill O'Riley an Dick Morris.

    I believe this article is from the same fellow who started the Blue Republicans is it not?

    Yes it is. He's doing a good job for us, and I'm surprised they haven't shut him up over there at Huffpo yet.

    Been bugging me awhile, why would the GOP NOT want the Blue Republicans. It was the Reagan democrats that won those elections was it not?

    I would compare Ron Paul's becoming presidency more to James Garfield than I would to Churchill the blood lusting man.

    This "hack job boot licker" is saying those who believe Ron Paul cannot win are ignorant or arrogant. He's the guy pushing for the Blue Republican movement to vote for Ron Paul on Huffington Post.

    Ron Paul knows how to make coalitions to find topics that people from all parties can agree upon. Ron Paul doesn't compromise, and that's why he's never voted to increase taxes or raise the debt ceiling.

    If the person wants a silly example for their silly view, you could point out liberals like eating food every day.

    I think maybe you need some sleep; you read into that the wrong way. It was one of the best written pieces on Dr Paul that I have read all year. You joined the forum THIS month and have over 1000 posts...? Get some rest and then read the article again, you'll enjoy it.
