Re: why wasn't ron paul elected?

when i see this guy, it seems he was the only genuine, sincere and exciting politician out there.
everyone else is a stupid puppet, who falls back on pre-scripted responses - installed only to carry out the demands of special interests and big government.
it speaks volumes that his own party sabotaged his election bid (which was the only one capable of toppling obama, and bringing them into power) - instead going with that unelectable flip-flopping joke that is mitt romney.
what a shame for the US and the world. i see all the time the US shouting about their freedom and democracy, but the US isn't even a legitimate democracy anymore.
even obama, who swore on bring the troops home immediately reneged on his promise and got smacked down from an idealistic change-bringer, to a status-quo figure once the real people in charge had a word in his ear.
LOL! you are officially a fool, I bet you're not even Scottish. I refuse to share my ancestry with idiots of your calibre.
Let me help you learn a bit about U.S Gov. The U.S gov is not a 'democracy', it's a 'constitutional republic' -- The founding fathers understood that DEMOCRACY is, in and out of itself, TYRANNY -- U.S gov is divided into three chambers: Presidential, Congressional/Senatorial, and Judicial; it is founded on the principle of the electoral selection of a countable,finite group, of individuals (representatives), voted by their constituents; representing, in theory, the best interest of each State -- partitioned, accordingly, by population and region. OUR FOUNDING FATHERS WERE AMATEUR MATHEMATICIANS.
Each State is independent to great extents; California can pass laws that contradict federal law; California has one of the largest constitutions in the world, it's existence, as well as Alabama's, is independent from that of the "U.S constitution" -- that term so commonly used amongst the usual talking heads. That means, each State, to some degree, has great level of AUTOCRACY. No democracy works like this, for one reason, the U.S is not looking out for the best interest of the majority, only of a powerful, influential, and affluent few. Deal with it.
How about we allow only HOME OWNERS TO VOTE? Well, that was the foundation of the Country; only a select few (white )men were allow to vote, and throughout history there have been movements to transcend the limitations of this doctrine to include minorities and lower class citizens with little income and/or education.
By no means is the U.S a stalwart of democracy, you were just fed this by ignorants. To believe that the U.S is a democracy is to believe that only Classical Physics can dominate the dynamics of the Universe; knowing full well, that Special Relativity dominates extragalactic physics.
