Default Will it lead to a brokered convention?

Ron Paul has now secured a majority of delegates in 5 states.

Massachusetts
Iowa
Maine
Louisana
Nevada

This should guarantee him a seat in Tampa. It's going to be an interesting convention, for sure. The GOP is never going to be the same.

Ron Paul will never get the nomination and if he did he would lose miserably and give that jackass 4 more years to finish his work.

Unfortunately Ron Paul is about 30years too old to help save this country.

Could be true but it would be nice to vote for someone you believe in!

Never say never, stranger things have happened.

Lose miserably based on what, your opinion?

Since Paul polls higher with Democrats and Indy voters than Romney, then the only way this could happen is if Republicans voted for Obama over Paul or stayed home. Do you honestly think that would happen? If it did happen that way then they deserve four more years of Obama.

If that's how it really shook out I think it would be ok.

You gotta figure you have people that will vote Republican no matter who it is. You have people that will vote Obama no matter what. Then you have the variety of in betweens. You have people like me that sure as fukc won't vote for Obama, but really don't want to vote for Romney. So in that case I guess if someone else were in there besides Romney, from someone like me, it would be an automatic -1 for Obama instead of a possible no vote either way.

Although I'm sure I'll vote no matter who it is. But we have covered that topic before...

Yes, my opinion. While he has some great ideas, and I like his morals and ideals, he has about the same amount of ideas that are WAY too out there for most of the people to vote for him. And his total lack of a foreign policy.

Ever think he polls high with Dems because they want him to get the nomination so it would make Obama a shoe in?

Also, I think we are getting there as a nation to support someone like Paul, but just not yet. Look at all the old school that are losing their seats right now to tea party backed . I know it happened in Indiana and it looks like its going to happen in Texas ect. THAT would start to really get the tide turning and in another cycle or two get someone to be able to run for pres that previously wouldn't be able to.

We are headed in a better direction and I give Paul a lot of credit for that. In that respect he has already won. The Republican party is being over run with liberty minded individuals. I just hope that they don't sell out once in office like many did in 2010.
