Doesn’t the riffraff know that the rules are written to keep the establishment in power and not to undermine them?

ROn Paul, stealing an election one rediculous caucus at a time.

He’ll end up with enough states to be on the ballot, I’m guessing.

Ron Paul did a great job in Maine. Romney can learn from him or ring his hands and call his lawyers.

I wrote on this forum in February that in my view Ron Paul won Maine’s caucus. If Romney didn’t see the signs then it is an indication of bad things to come.

Paul actually won the caucuses there - the state GOPe leader just decided not to count certain counties so Mittens could win.

Ron Paul seems to me the only candidate who is not part of the government’s scam on the common people of this country

Never mind the fact that he's a loon. Which hardly becomes the "common people of this country" -- who are better than that.

ABO, the perfect is the enemy of the good, and any other excuses from people telling us to vote for Mutt. They all seem to apply to Paul as well.

Ron Paul killed the establishment ( or at least mortally wounded it) the establishment in Maine. Maybe he can do that at the Nationals.

“Never mind the fact that he’s a loon.”

Perhaps, but what differentiates one loon from another, in this case the frontrunner?

I don't know that I'd call Romney a loon. A disappointment, to be sure, but not a loon.

He needs 2 or 3 more states to be formally placed in nomination.

Green Papers has Iowa with 7 for Santorum, 7 for Paul, 6 for Romney, 4 for Gingrich, and 4 unpledged.

I don’t know if that counts as a “plurality” for Paul. If not then he needs 3 more states.

You should know that the convention system is for those who show up for it. Heck, politics is for those who show up. The battle is SUPPOSED to go to those who show up for it.
