Ron Paul: ‘Hard to Say’ When He Will Win a Caucus or Primary




abc TW Ron Paul 1 jt 120205 wblog Ron Paul: Hard to Say When He Will Win a Caucus or Primary

ABC

Coming off of a back-of-the-pack finish in the Nevada caucus Saturday night, Ron Paul said Sunday morning that it is “hard to say exactly when” he expects to score a victory in an upcoming caucus or primary.

“Of course you set [your target] for victory, but you have to live within the real world,” Paul told me on “This Week”. “But we have three or four caucus states that we believe our numbers are doing pretty good and we have to wait and see and keep doing exactly what we’re doing.”

Paul, who is the only 2012 GOP presidential candidate who has not won a primary or caucus, said despite his losing record, he has already achieved his goal igniting a “big change in this country.”

“There is an intellectual revolution going on with the young people,” Paul said. “It has not been translated into an absolute political change, but, believe me, there is an intellectual revolution going on and that has to come first before we see big political changes.”

The Texas congressman criticized his GOP rivals, particularly frontrunner and Nevada Caucus winner  Mitt Romney, for having no “firm convictions.” Paul said Romney’s economic positions were “flawed,” but that the former Massachusetts governor is apt to change his tune if it means capturing some of Paul’s supporters.

“I think Mitt can change his mind,” Paul said. “He’s changed his mind in the past. If he hears from our young people and voters and we continue this, yeah, he’s going – he’s going to change his mind, if there’s a political benefit to it.”

With Romney’s support still hovering under 50 percent, capturing some of Paul’s devout and substantial base of followers could put the wind at Romney’s back going into the general election.

With 71 percent of the votes tallied, Paul sits at third in the Nevada Caucus, about 1,000 votes behind Newt Gingrich, and falling behind his second place finish in 2008.

Paul said his third-place finish in Nevada was a “disappointment,” but that the poor showing would not put an end to his campaign.

“On the positive side, we will get a bloc of votes. We will still get some delegates,” he said. “And we still will pursue, you know, our plan to go into the caucus states.”

Colorado and Minnesota are the next states to hold their GOP caucuses, both of which go to the polls on Tuesday.

Not with the Globalist polling meters.

However with people coming out 4 to 1 in support of Ron Paul versus the other shills the only thing that is going to matter is the nomination election results.

The shills simply implode too quickly anymore.

Sure, everything is a conspiracy! In all nine states right now that he has lost! Truth is, his core appeal is to stoners who want to light up a joint and inject h+eroin. Most of his supporters could care less about the Fed, they just want to get high.

Yep, all his core appeal is to stoners who want to light up a joint and inject h+eroin. Most of his supporters could care less about the Fed, they just want to get high.  You are pretty much proof of that as it is pretty obvious that drugs or something has screwed up your mind.

You don't even care about the FED,  as long as a multi-racial is sitting as President you could care less about the FED's system of debt-slavery.   As long as American-Idol keeps going on banker tyranny just doesn't sink in.

Wrong, I don't care about the Fed no matter who is sitting in office!  You want to change things in this country so people have more opportunity, than the first thing you do is go to public financing of campaigns and end lobbying.  Anyone who knows anything will tell you that.

Public financing just means you can't give your whole dollar to the Democrat Party but must be split between the Republican, Democrat, Libertarian, Green, Constitution, Reform, Socialist, Communist, A3P, Working Families parties.

So 100 cents divided by 10  =  10 cents required to go to all parties, whether you want to or not !!!!!

Who wants 90% of their money working against them ?

Wrong again!  It means people like the Koch Brothers can't donate anymore than you or me and therefore, won't have anymore clout than you or me.  Money buys influence!  I shouldn't have to tell anybody that.

I would love to see all parties hold their conventions and then take center stage for the Presidency or any other elected position.

However if the Dixiecrats, or Whigs can't fund themselves their should be no wealth-redistribution to support parties that don't represent anybody.

It's bad enough the Republicans and Democrats do that.    Shocked

Volitzer, did you hear what I said?

Meaning if you want more time for third parties, that is the ONLY way to change the process.
