    Hillsdale and Branch

    Forgive me if this has already been asked and answered, but I'm just getting home from work and getting my first look at the results.

    Hillsdale did incredible, 17% voted for Paul, next door in Branch Paul only pulled 6%, and in surrounding areas he didn't do much better. Both counties have similar total votes, so why did the localized spike not carry over to the next county?

    Still digesting,

    I asked the same earlier and it looks like we found the explanation- a very Libertarian minded college that teaches Austrian economics is in Hillsdale.

    A bit old response, but they did good IN SPITE of the College. It's really a NeoCon college, and I say that after living there for 17 years and thinking the same thing you did before I moved there. See my follow-up from 2008 from the thread you reference also

    Brad Birzer teaches there - he's Ron Paul 100% through and through. But yeah, that monthly newsletter I get certainly proves there's a big Israel first contingent in the leadership.
    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.
