    Ron Paul has stimulated a serious dialog and brought subjects to the forefront that would not have been otherwise.

    The reality is however he will not be elected President in 2008. He’s more like a right wing version Ralph Nader who though principled is not electable.

    We are now beyond pontificating and positioning the plank and are trying to select a nominee however mediocre the two top candidates are. Dr. Paul’s contribution window for contribution has closed and for him to stay in the race reflects either his ego OR being out of touch with reality.

    The same thing likely applies to Mike Huckabee although with one win under his belt and the potential for one or two more its reasonable for him to at least wait until Tuesday. Had McCain not risen up like Lazarus I’d say Huckabee was toast long ago.

    Both of them siphon votes from one or the other top two candidates and make it even harder for a clear cut winner. As John Edwards did for the democrat party, those that are clearly unelectable like Ron Paul should drop out.

    “those that are clearly unelectable like Ron Paul should drop out.”

    “Clearly unelectable” includes McCain and Romney.

    In the dark days of the Revolution, by this “logic”, General Washington should have packed it in because the war was CLEARLY unwinnable.

    Dr. Paul will be in until the last primary, telling the truth about what the establishment GOP has done to America and Americans.

    I don’t see Paul getting the nomination… but then again, I damn sure didn’t see MCCAIN getting the nomination just a month ago. I don’t buy this notion that you’re duty-bound to withdraw if you’re not perceived as the front-runner.

    If people doing better than Paul were dropping out, that would be one thing… but Paul is LEADING all the other candidates who have dropped out. He’s placed second in both Nevada and Louisiana… and Louisiana raises eyebrows because it was (of course) ignored by the MSM as well as this blog, and Paul probably would have won outright had the state party not changed the rules at the last minute (a challenge is still pending, Paul may wind up winning that state after all).

    At the end of the day, the real barometer for staying in a race is fund raising. Edwards is dropping out because his backers are abandoning him, and his money has dried up… at this point a continued campaign would just be racking up debt. Paul, however, is hanging with the front-runners in money and is seeing his fundraising ACCELERATE in recent weeks. More candidates are dropping out, which means more possible protest votes from people who aren’t satisfied with either McCain or Romney. I don’t see why Paul would drop out before the convention, much less before Super Tuesday. It will probably come down to him and McCain, and it’ll be interesting to see how many votes and delegates he draws in the late states once that happens. That’s when he really gets the clout he’s looking for at the convention.

    The most informed intelligent comments in general come from people who support Ron Paul on the PP as well as my blog. I find it interesting how the media and some people who post on the PP always portray Ron Paul supporters as extremist and take comments from a few and use it to attack him.

    It would be like taking comments from Debbie and saying she represents the majority of people who supported Thompson.

    She doesn’t?

    (I pretty much lump most Huckabee folks in with GOPeach too, for that matter)

    Just this morning on CSpan, it was reported that the Dem campaign committee has about $30 million versus the GOP campaign committee’s $2.5 million.

    Huckabee in his euphoria after winning Iowa, made a push to raise $1 million in a week, but only got to $900,000. Last week McCain had to leave campaigning in Florida to raise money.

    TODAY alone, Ron Paul will raise more than $1 million.

    We have organized.
    We are a movement.
    We are the real conservatives.
    We never thought Dr. Paul would win.
    We have been truly amazed at what we have achieved.

    We know the current financial chaos, long predicted by Ron Paul, is going to bring a lot of PAIN into nearly every American household, who now knows who to blame.

    Hint: It ain’t us.

  7. StevePerkins says:

    Wow… Paul’s Q4 fundraising was almost TWICE that of McCain. He’s also the only candidate who’s fundraising results keep increasing rather than declining.
