Let me be blunt
It should be blindingly obvious by now that Ron Paul is not going to be President. He’s not going to win a single state primary, and the two delegates he got out of Iowa may be just about all he has at the convention. He won’t have a prime-time speaking slot either.
The question now isn’t selecting a President, it’s what happens to the cause for liberty after Ron Paul.
The best thing that could happen for liberty would be for the entire Paleo-libertarian Rockwell crowd to be discredited by all of this.
