    You are right on both counts I am a dreamer, and I won a contest in an English class for the longest sentence.

    Ron Paul always does well at these types of events, just like Jessie Jackson always polled well in the democrat straw polls...not like anyone would ever seriously set him forward as the party nominee...

    I was hoping to see a true Statesman emerge in the run up to the primary elections, and so far I don't see anyone who is a stand out.

    It's clear it has to be someone who could beat Obama or who ever gets the Democrat nomination in the case Obama keeps falling in the polls because he hasn't yet learned that pretending he's our dictator against the majority of American opinions is no way to win re-election.

    I really wouldn't read too much into this. Ron Paul seems to perform well in everything... EXCEPT winning any actual elections. Oh well.

    Christi, who gets a lot of press, doesn't poll well. To me, I agree this does not mean much.

    Whatever. I can translate the above to mean this: my sympathies were just too good for the general American public who in no way shape, or form, could uniformly agree with the man.

    Except for the fact that Ron Paul has actually accomplished things for liberty and Jackson is a rabble rousing asshole.

    I like Ron Paul, and find him refreshingly honest. I think it is good that he is in there making noise.

    However, it's sorta like this: I'll be listening to him speak, nodding my head, and thinking "Yeah, that's right!"

    Then, all the sudden, he goes WAY off the deep end and gets really extreme, and my jaw hits the floor and I think "Oh hell no!"

    To put it simply, I think this is why he just isn't really electable. There are too many issues on which his views are too extreme.
