Ron Paul can win

Ron Paul is on a roll, and his rock started rollin' even faster and stronger since Rick Santorum stepped aside. Thousands keep showing up wherever he goes to make an appearance. Not one or two thousand, Paul is averaging 4,700 attendees at his rallies. Some places the 12-term congressman brings in 6,000 people, whereas, most often the groups are more than 4,000. No longer can little hotel rooms hold those who come to see Ron Paul -- the doctor must have arenas for his crowds.

With all this momentum, yet lack of assistance from the mainstream media, can Dr. Paul still win the nomination as the Republican candidate to go against Barack Obama? He certainly thinks so, and most recently stated that on the Mike Church show.

His supporters also agree he can win the nomination as they consistently keep giving their finances to his money bombs. And his social networking following believes he can win, check out this popular YouTube comment by psovegeta: I'd still vote for Ron Paul even if I thought he was going to lose. You want to say I'm wasting my vote? My vote is my personal endorsement for the values I stand up for, not some cheap ass novelty lottery ticket. The kind of lottery ticket that you buy in joke stores that all say you've won but you can't redeem cause they have fake redemption instructions.

But why doesn't the mainstream media report about the thousands of attendees at his rallies? If thousands came to see Mitt Romney it would be reported, as in this story by the Los Angeles Times: Mitt Romney draws thousands at Idaho rally. By the way, that article mentions 2,200 people in attendance for Romney, don't forget Ron Paul draws double, sometimes triple that amount.

If the multitudes show up for the Dalai Lama it makes the mainstream news, as in this article by NBC San Diego: Dalai Lama Arrives in San Diego for Sold Out Shows. In case you don't read that article, I'll fill you in -- the Dalai Lama's event sold out with a whopping 2,700 at his show.

In sports there is a game sometimes where throughout the event one team is losing, but haven't you ever seen the losing team come from behind and win? Take a look at horse-racing there are those breathtaking moments where throughout the start of the race the long shot runs in the back of the pack and slowly starts gaining ground passing horse after horse for the victory. Could the same be happening for Ron Paul? Can Ron Paul still win the nomination?

I don't know about you, but I believe anything is possible. Victor Hugo once said, All the forces in the world are not so powerful as an idea whose time has come.

After this report was published, this tweet went out to many big players in the mainstream media that links back to this article: wgadget Boys, RON PAUL has a question for you-->…@jamiedupree @CNN @FOXNews @limbaugh@EWErickson @Talkmaster @Dickmorristweets
