At least you didn't get to experience the feeling of voting for Obama in an election that didn't really count but Hillary is claiming victory for anyway.

Not that I'm speaking from personal experience or anything .

Oh well, at least I don't have to worry about the Ron Paul blimp stalking me anymore

I personally can't wait to rip down all the "Google Ron Paul" adverts at my university after he concedes.

Do you have to vote for the slots thing too, or was the solely a South Florida thing?

Is Rudy dropping out? Is this a concession speech he's giving?

First they ignore you.

Then they laugh at you.

Then they fight you.

Then you win.

Why are Ron Paul's supporters not showing up at the polls? It's a valid question.

A generation (several generations) reared on cheap credit, cheap 'gas', cheap electronic goods, cheap religion and cheap politics isn't necessarily likely to have developed the discernment necessary to recognise the truth when it finally presents itself.

I respect that we fundamentally disagree on Ron Paul, but I have certainly offered rather detailed reasons as to why I do not think that Paul is good for America that don't involve any of those criteria. It is because, fundamentally, I believe him to be the most reactionary of all the GOP candidates, which runs counter to my idea that we, as a civilization, need to move forward, rather than being chained to the past.

I do believe that we are approaching a point where the policies of the last 30 years are breaking at the seams, much like the collapse of Keynesian capitalism in the early-to-mid 1970s. However, replacing a failing approach with, in my opinion, a fundamentally wrong approach like Paul's is no solution.
