Having lived in Central Iowa from age 14 until I was 42 (with time out for the Army) I have participated in presidential politics and party fundraising. Enthusiasm beats almost everything else. One must have a serious, viable candidate, of course, which is why all the Ron Paul and Howard Dean enthusiasm went nowhere. There are already organizations set-up and purpose-built to support former Gov. Sarah Palin in a presidential race. Can the same be said for former Senator Rick Santorum, former Governor Jeb Bush or the other likely 2016 candidates?
I don’t know and I don’t know who would be our strongest candidate and like I say, there are only two things I do know—that we must get serious about voter fraud and we must all hang together to defeat the Democrat after the primary is over.
