Ugh. That would ruin everyone's best laid plans.
If FL loses half of their delegates that's a good thing for us.
That is true, but what is BAD for us is the push all other early states would make to get to the front of the line. We aren't going to see any exponential rises in the polls, until each other candidate is vetted and tossed aside as a zilch.
A rush forward greatly helps whomever the establishment and the media deem to be the "front-runner" and the Candidate of the Month.
well, i'll be there, whatever day it is. so long as they don't jump ahead of NH and IA (which i believe is not within the rules of the party), we should be fine. if we don't come out of NH/IA very strong, it won't matter what happens thereafter.
This is just a ploy by the GOP.
They see their stars failing in the spotlight, and they are doing anything to push a face in front of the camera to take away from Dr. Paul's momentum.
Before this announcement, I believed slow and steady wins the race but now:
Ron Paul has to start speaking out at debates, has to interject when questions are asked on the real issues!
This one upsmanship about primary dates is silly. Primaries are now a full year before the candidate will take office.

This is terrible news if true. We have pretty much no chance in Florida. I hate to be a conspiracy nut, but this sure seems suspicious when we are doing so well in Iowa.
