    So, if people just stopped with this ASSUMPTION that Paul "can't win" then not only CAN he win... but he WILL win. Of course the Ron Paul demonization campaign is going to come into full swing pretty soon.

    Guy wins all the polls, all the debates, has REAL demonstrable integrity (something which makes him unique in this day), but the media won't address where he's turning heads, but instead of saying he can't win, they just report on those times that he wins and mention all others running.

    It'd be like the media reporting on the super-bowl the day after without ever mentioning the winner.
    What polls...the online/phone call/text ones that his loyal supporters band together to win every time? He does have an engaged following. I'll give him that much.
    Anyone who says Obama was wrong for the way he went after Bin Laden, and killed him, is not going to win either the primary or general.
    They should get behind Cain now, before someone like Romney wins the primary and loses the general. Cain is the only shoe in to beat Obama.
    However, he has to get the nomination first.

    You are forgetting about Daniels and the fact that if Cain is nominated, a lot of the repub base won't go out and vote during the general election, unless he panders to them and goes on a triad about gay marriage and abortion, in which case he'll lose the general election anyways.

    God Mellie! Put duct tape over your mouth!

    I know the media is pushing that, but they need to stop. You're right that it would be a guarantee win for Obama so hopefully conservatives will throw that idea under the bus.

    I think the peole who don't plan to vote for Obama, will vote in the general, no matter who is running.

    some candidates - specifically Romney and Newt - would increase third party turnout.

    There aren't enough of those people to put any repub in the office though and social-conservatives tend to just not vote if they aren't going to be herd by either side.

    And then he would lose the general election.

    you might not like it, but those are the people who decide national elections.

    And as a libertarian, you should agree with Romney that the constitution doesn't ban states from doing what Mass did, just the federal government.

    EDIT!

    I just had an epiphany and I take back my opinion on social conservative not turning out to vote. I just realized why people have been hard at work combining the social right with the republican party which is to solidify power in the right in order to keep real capitalism from ever taking root in the population. It genius and disturbing.

    I have no problem with the constitutionality of RomneyCare.

    Opposite problem. He's phenomenal. He's everything I think of when I say "Presidential material". I'd vote for him twice if I agreed with him on a single damned thing.

    I'm putting this in my sig line. Hope you don't mind. I couldn't put it better myself.

    Is Herman Cain going to be the Ron Paul of this election cycle...the candidate with lots of annoying supporters on the internet and no real support among the electorate? It's starting to seem that way.
    Just because I might be annoying doesn't mean the rest of his base will be.
    I just love the man and can't help myself. He is the one man who could get this economy back on track and pulling away from China. They are about to over take us.
    InTrade? Was it recent? I thought Cain was moving up there, or maybe I'm thinking of something else.

    Our dear corporations did that to make an extra buck or two
