“The point being that the Republican Party leadership wanted Bob Dole, even though he could not win the general election.”

And what? They used hypnotism on the voters? Thery rigged the votes in the rest of the primaries? If you think a man who is good enough in the eyes of the people cannot be elected because of powerful leadership figures, why bother pushing Ron Paul, if in fact the fix is always in?

We "bother" pushing our favorite candidate, Dr. Ron Paul, because we believe he is the best candidate.

We also believe that the grass-roots party membership is worth listening to, in spite of what the party leadership thinks.

I've been in the party long enough to realize the power brokers are self-serving to the point of promoting their favorite candidate regardless of his chances of actually wining.

The power brokers are pushing their own agenda which is not necessarily in the best interest of the country, or even of the party.

This is no longer the old days, with limited access to be able to get the word out. The information is available. There is the net after all. But at what point do you come to the conclusion that he indeed will not be the nominee? Is there a time when you you say “Okay, ain’t gonna happen this time.” or do you go way over into the beyond, and mount a 3rd party effort that at best will garner single digit numbers?

If indeed power brokers are keeping us from hearing Ron Paul, please, name them and give specifics.

If you think that “power brokers” are the ones in control, that is as good as saying the rest of us are sheep, incapable of deciding things for ourselves, and that we are unlightened because we are not supporting Ron Paul.

idiot Ron Paul

Please show a little respect.

He's an MD (baby doctor), Veteran, 5 kids, 18 grandkids, and the only US Representative that has been a consistent voice for constitutional government for almost 30 years.

He still a political idiot for not knowing that we are fighting the most important war since WW II and we must fight it until we achieve victory. Not only an idiot but a defeatist and a traitor.

An idiot is the one who ignores Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia is the engine that drives thousands of Western Mosques, schools, Islamic studies centers in universities and civil rights groups like CAIR and ISNA, all of which preach Muslim superiority over the Infidel in all religious and civil matters.

And they can only operate in the West with our blessing, (which they have.)

Saudi Arabia is much complex problem. The alternative to Al Saud the ruling royal family will be Al Qaeda terrorists.

That doesn’t mean we have to give them carte blanche to spread their hatred and supremacism on our own soil, which is exactly what they have right now.
