Why do people say that Ron Paul does't have any electability?
The polls always show him way behind and he never comes close to getting his own party's line.
Some of his debate and interview answers as well as some of his supporters' attitude hurt him with the majority of Americans.
The reason is simple, he's not Conservative enough to be elected by Republicans, and he's not Liberal enough to be elected by Democrats. Mostly the vote he is shooting for is right of center. Unfortunately for him, it will only garner the 12% - 20% of undecideds, and take those votes away from the Republican contender, just like Ross Perrot did in the 90's electing Bill Clinton.
The only thing solid Paul brings to the table is his stand on Fiscal Policy, other than that, his Social stands are way too liberal.
Because he has the most common sense and common sense will never win in the American political system. Once someone starts making sense, that person is immediately inhibited. Common sense strikes at the very core of all those politicians who line their pockets with deceit. And those politicians will do everything in their power to keep their silver spoons attached to their lips.
The only "people" who say this are the media, the politicians, and ordinary victims of propaganda. The former two mentioned say this because their bosses do not want Ron Paul in office and want to make every attempt to railroad voters into voting for a pre-selected candidate. Throw your TV out the window, don't listen to others, and vote for who you think should be president based on their platform. I want to point out that this will probably be Paul's best chance to ever get elected given what he's up against. Voters have realized (yet again) that the ordinary Democrats are not much better than the Republicans. They should (should!) start looking outside the typical party platforms and seek out what were once called "fringe" candidates.

With politics headed its own way once again after an election the opposition wishes to offer Sarah Palin as the answer. Is it time the American people stopped swallowing the warmed over platforms and knee jerk issues and took the country back from the Banks and Big Business?

I just stumbled on this story and am really impressed. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/11/2 … 09102.htmlThe story is about Ron Paul's stance that the fed should take a hands off approach to medical marijuana, that it should be down to the states. My only worry is that Obama campaigned...

The Republicans are sworn to uphold the constitution. The constitution requires, under the 14th Amendment, that the debts of the United States are guaranteed. The Republicans appropriated the money in the budget. They voted for the debt. But now, they want default. That should be seen as...

I have noticed out of all of the pictures of the Arizona debate, only 2 had Ron Paul in there. In fact, most articles about that same debate don't even mention Ron Paul. What is it that they don't want people to know? I guarantee if Mittens or anyone else had over 1,000 Vets and active duty...
