Despite Mitt Romney's huge lead, Ron Paul revolution persists

Ron Paul has the proverbial snowball’s chance in Hades of becoming the Republican presidential nominee this year. Compared to presumptive front-runner Mitt Romney (switching clichés) the image of gnat vs. elephant comes to mind.

Texas congressman Paul has yet to win a primary election or caucus. Romney has accumulated 10 times as many delegates as Paul (847-80). And yet long after the withdrawal of Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich (both
of whom had won more than twice as many delegates as Paul before quitting), the dedicated libertarian keeps on keepin’ on.Should Romney be worried about Paul, nipping at his heels as the former Massachusetts governor pivots from the primary season to take on incumbent Barack Obama?

As he’s said many times, Paul is promoting a movement as much as a candidacy. In a nutshell, that means anti-big government and anti-war, eliminating five federal depa

  • A vote for Paul is a vote for Obama, unfortunately because he'll be a write-in at best.

    I'd rather Paul than Romney by a mile, but it's not going to happen.

    Paul's whole thing about getting rid of the department of education is a bit scary, I must admit.

      Actually Romney and Obama are identical and both funded by Goldman Sachs.

      So you are exactly wrong.

      Are you high? I never said they weren't both corporate shills. In fact, I said I'd prefer Paul... Your comment was out of left-field.

      Best to actually read my comment before you talk.

      I made two claims:

      1) RP is a write-in at best

      2) I'd prefer RP over Romney

      What am I "exactly wrong" about, precisely?

    • @RP2012 BP has contributed more money to Bohama than they've contributed to any other U.S. presidential candidate throughout their corporate name mutations.

    • @jum_runky "Paul's whole thing about getting rid of the department of education is a bit scary, I must admit." Maybe if the DoE was eliminated our young people could be competitive with the rest of the world again.

      They're competitive already -- at least on paper.

      I'm all for small government, but there are a few places federal oversight is necessary, and, in my opinion, education is right up there with roads and sewers.

      Education, defence, infrastructure and policing should be covered on the federal level. Everything else should be up to the individual state.

      Makes sense. All blacks and lefties flocking to Ron Paul.

      Back to sleep.

      Romney has so far only promised MORE of a "Hope and Change" agenda also. Of course he's not calling it that. Keeping a Moderate stance, and the fact that everyone else has dropped out has been all the "help" he needs.

  • Old Ron ain't perfect, but how anyone could consider the other candidates is mind boggling, it is the same story if any one else is elected, they're puppets. Kennedy was the last president to come in and try to change things. Seems to be a higher power at work.

  • so tired of hearing about this idiot. Paul lost!

    Half of the delegates he has, do not even represent the actual votes cast for him. He planted his minions in the caucuses where despite other candidates winning those votes the delegates intend to vote for Paul. A cheater and a liar is not fit to be President.

  • The arrogance he has is mind blowing. That which he and his minions accuse everyone else of he is committing daily. Ive yet to see any proof justifying Paul being put on a pedestal... apparently invoking the Constitution and doing NOTHING for 30 years is all one needs to be called a true statesmen and a better man than our Founding Fathers! Oh wait you will hear his kind say "he voted ..." and said this and that on the House floor, yes well that is HIS JOB!!! Show me what he has done o More..

  • Will you Ron Paul moonbats please let it go? The man is never going to win - ever. He can wave his arms and go on whatever rambling maniacal rant he wants - its over. So get on with your conspiracy theories about why he lost now and give it up.

    • @thebigniv Ron Paul has just broken 200 delegates from this weekends delegate selections in nevada. The race is far from over. Ron Paul has taken the majority of delegates in 5 states, with another 275 still up for grabs in states which had elections. Look for brokered convention come tampa.
