Nobody expects him to win. Not even him. It would be quite a shock, after this many attempts. Ron Paul realizes that he's not really campaigning for himself to be president, but rather for an alternative view of how government works and what it should do. For a movement, and a revolution. For an alternative view of how society works, and what it means to be human. I am thrilled for him because he got the youth vote in Iowa today. The new voters came out for him. Probably because of that Big Dog ad, in combination with Dr Paul's willingness to legalize pot. Strange bedfellows indeed. Societies shift according to the ley lines of the culture.

It's pretty amusing to hear the rest of the candidates talk mainly about defeating Barack Obama. I would and will vote against all of them in favor of Barack Obama. Newt makes me wish desperately for a moral atheist candidate. The others I can't even remember. I wish for Palin. She'd at least make big enough gaffes to make me spit out my food.

Don't worry, I'll turn off the radio, soon. I have to say I really do enjoy hearing the candidates speaking to their own people at these events. I learn a lot more than I do from statements that have been honed for the mainstream news.

QUOTE OF THE DAY
We're all Austrians now.
--Ron Paul

(Austrians = opposite of Keynesians. This quote of course taken radically out of context, he is speaking of some time in the future when Keynesian economics is no longer broadly accepted and applied in America.)

And wow, Ron did VERY well this time. With Mitt winning by EIGHT votes, do you think a recount will be demanded?

Mitt beat *perry* by 8 votes, not paul. Paul was behind by 4 or 5%.

Actually, I believe you're confusing Rick Perry for Rick Santorum. From what I understand, Perry did very poorly and is about to drop out of the race, while Santorum somehow did relatively well (which ultimately means nothing because he doesn't stand a chance in hell in the general election if he ever got the nomination).

Ah. I think you're right.

Yes, I know. I didn't say Romney beat Paul by eight votes. Two sentences, two comments. Perhaps they should have been separated by a couple of line breaks.
