A couple of million people liked Ron Paul enough to vote for him in the primary. Out of over 19 million, that's relatively small.

Lets review a bit, I was never a romney fan, but in the race, he beat the rest in the race by a large margin.

It's all documented history now.

This documented history will show that Paul was winning states early in the primary process, that the MSM didn't report it and that the GOP voters believed what the MSM was broadcasting into their heads.

Republicans shunned Ron Paul when they should have embraced him. Ron Paul was a conservative. Mitt Romney was Obama-Lite. Old Romney quotes were like current Obama quotes, and that's what Republicans thought could win??

My problem with the Libertarian and Constitutional parties is that most of their candidates are former Republicans that nobody cares about.

Didn't the Constitutional Party nominee this year support the Patriot Act when he was in office? What a joke!

Religious statists? You know that Paul was a very religious man, and everything he did in politics was based on his belief that Jesus Christ was his personal savior, right? It was his deepest core value from the way he described it.
Being a Christian doesn't make one a religious statist.

I thought it was clear that I was responding to the quoted post because it seemed to imply that there was such a situation, whether it be called fraud or not. I was asking if such a thing admittedly happend, but just wasn't a big deal. I never followed that 'event' much, other than Ron Paul's backers saying it happened, and you and the others denying that it happened. Never heard someone say that it happened, but it was no big deal.

Yes. "Sleeper" issues like stem cells and gay marriage played a huge part in the congressional portions of the 2008 elections.

"How would Jesus vote" is not a platform, it is a dangerous game that has cost the GOP many vital votes. Do not water down the message to become more moderate or democratic, instead just STFU on social issues and stick to small government, lower taxes and better economy.

The party is lost no hope
There is no way to educate ignorant people who for 2 generations, and trained by ex hippies from the sixties who run public education, to vote for anyone who will not give them stuff they do not earn.
thid includes all the damn dreamers, their chain immigration plans, the stupid people who voted for BHO and who in the last jobs report all had an increase in unemployment: Women, Blacks, and the youth under 30.

When I signed up I couldn't figure out how to change it and that was a choice so I went with it.

I'm not denying it happened. I don't know if it did or not. I'd just think if it did, there would have been charges filed. It happens.
