Conservatives and Republican elites in the state are divided over who to support for the GOP nomination, but they almost uniformly express concern over the prospect that Ron Paul and his army of activist supporters may capture the state’s 2012 nominating contest — an outcome many fear would do irreparable harm to the future role of the first-in-the-nation caucuses.
Is Ron Paul my perfect candidate? No. While I like a lot of his domestic agenda, there are aspects of his stance on foreign policy that I just don't see as workable in the 21st century.
However, out of all that are running, he's the closest thing to my perfect candidate, and I don't think I'm alone in that position.
Can he beat Obama? Absolutely, given the right circumstances and organization. A lot of folks are feed up with both "ends" of the alleged political spectrum, and are approaching desperation for a candidate that reflects their views--and they aren't listening to the party or the media any longer. But it will be an uphill battle with the media and the Republican party against him.
But no matter what, I'm going on the record that this election is, one way or the other, rigged against us. Prepare accordingly.
