‘Ron Paul is great, but won’t win the ultimate vote’

The U.S. presidential campaign is now underway in earnest, with the first contest to determine a single Republican nominee having taken place in the state of Iowa. In a tight finish, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney won the caucuses by just eight votes, narrowly edging out social conservative Rick Santorum. In third place is anti-war advocate Ron Paul. Iowa’s polls are largely seen as setting the tone for the nomination race, by weeding out candidates. The eventual Republican nominee will be up against Democrat President Barack Obama in November’s election. Former congressional aide and diplomat, Joel Rubin, believes it’s Ron Paul who stands out from the rest, but is unlikely to get enough support from his fellow Republicans.

I think Ron Paul would do the US a lot of good in the long run.

But I think if he gets into power and the title of President isnt just a sham, hard years will follow.

@THESLICKNESSEDM I don't think that the human race is capable of a Utopia unless it indulges in complete apathy. If I'm right then in order for everyone to get along, people have to become the most extreme narcissists imaginable. When you think about revolution, its almost impossible for a violent revolution to take place in a first world country without a civil war causing the country to annihilate itself. If people didn't vote it would express a majority decision for systematic change

So am I to understand that war is anti-isolationism? He doesn't have the support of establishment repubs because Ron Paul is not establishment. He is not status quo. He is for the freedom of the people and the constitution. It's time to give the power back to the people and make the government work for us, not the highest bidder.

Doesnt Mr Rubin recall that OBAMA in 2008, ran on the idea of closing down Gitmo and bringing the troops home???? Does he forget so easily?? OF COURSE Ron will win vs Obama, Obama has shown that he's just a gimp mouthpiece continuing the lobbyist agendas, of course people want the wars and the bullshit to end.

@jcox2099 Except people on welfare. I think he really needs to explain why a hands-off approach would be better for them.

Not wanting to waste loads of money and not to mention human lives does NOT make you an isolationist!
Ron Paul has said many times that he is more than willing to keep good relationships with other countries, but through conversation and trade rather than war.

This video is just another piece of misinformation.

The only reason Ron Paul wouldn't win would be because of cheating.

They're trying to keep him from winning the nomination by convincing us he can't win. It will only work if we fall for it!

Somebody really screwed up the title of this clip. Ron Paul is the only choice.

I gave up carring when people allowed their politicans, their news media, and they themselves were more interested in Kim Kardashians divorce, or Lindsey Lohans Parole, instead of demanding the 99%ers to be heard and mocked them as nothing but beggers and hipsters,

I no longer care, the revoulution can die, everybody else sold out, so I am going to do the same, I am going to vote for Romney, screw everybody else.

"Calling Ron Paul an isolationist is like calling your neighbor a hermit because he doesnt come over to your property and smash your windows."

Non-Intervention, Diplomacy. Not Isolationist. The isolationists are the ones who impose sanctions on countries and start wars with those countries… because war is only excused as a last resort of self defense. Every country no matter who they are has a right to defend themselves.pre-emptive war on the other hand, offensive wars, are wrong and immoral

Notice, the only military veteran, Paul, seeks a sensible, noninterventionist foreign policy, while the draft-dodging neocon club wants to be president so they can send our sons and daughters to fight and die for the offshore banks and MIC in yet another corporatist military adventures

Anti-war position would get him elected in the general election because he would be the only anti-war candidate on either side.

@AlanaPower111 Ron Paul is 76. In great health. He even said 1/26/12 that he'd challenge any of the republican nominee's to a 25 mile bike race and he'd also release medical records.

@ThaCoates Where'd you get that info?

DAKthe

@OpenTheTrollGate Even senior people like Ron Paul. When did our standards go from having to be an intellectual, to being a c+ college guy who parties all the time.
I don't want a dumb president. I want a smart president. And Ron Paul is the only really SMART president out there not being persuaded by money. He's a doctor, know's economics, and has served. He's a smart guy and I trust him.

DAKthe
Guest

@ThaCoates Show me the facts and I will believe. I'm pretty sure if people keep waking up he'll win.

DAKthe
Guest

@YouBeMadlol What I'm saying is people are waking up to the brainwashing being done by big media. And I don't resort to only, "cheating" all the time. I do a lot more research than most people do about politics and I like to educate my peers. And I love how even though we're for the SAME cause, person and views you still resort to bashing my intelligence and pretty much saying I'm brainwashed.

Please, take the butt plug out, take a nap and come back when you're in a better mood. (;

@Jononutoob True, but if the media in America actually educated the public on real issues maybe Americans wouldn't be so dumb. But then again the MEDIA is controlled…

Funny, there's nothing in my channel that would give away that I don't like the guy…
And condescending, 'holier than thou' Ron Paul fans always say things to me that fight them to a T, like this excerpt, 'Your vileness is probably an understatement.'
