Yeap. It is Paul or nobody. I do not see how the Republican establishment is different than Democrats establishment. Both of them will poop on me with regulation and tax. They always talk about how "unfair" the "rich" take advantage of the tax system. But they never complain about their monopoly on spending money and taxation.

On the voting. It is hard to accept that people will wait over an hour to hear the man speak but unwilling to spend 15 minutes at the voting booth. This doesn't make sense to me.

Many 'Paulies' aren't really republicans now,so many will stay home...which is their right.

Most with whom I have spoken do not say they will stay home so it could get interesting.

I have gotten a couple staying home, but most say either third party or write in. A few have even said Obama. I think I recall one saying vote for the repub candidate which they thought would be Romney.

I'm not an avid supporter of Paul like many other Paul voters are, but I still wouldn't vote for Romney or Santorum. So, I think you are gravely mistaken. Paul has managed to attract the young vote to the GOP and away from the Democrats, yet the Old Guard of the GOP want to push them away course I think that was the Paul strategy the whole time. The GOP thinks they will live forever, but they are demographically challenged. For every Hispanic that joins the GOP ranks, 2 or 3 join the Democrats, GOP needs to embrace Paul while they still have a chance and toss out the baby boomer Cold War mentality
