Ron Paul 2012
August 15, 2011 by USA Post
Ron Paul 2012, Ron Paul, once seen as a marginal candidate and a nuisance for the establishment, has emerged as the top Republican in 2012, giving voice to the liberal wing of the party and reflected frustration with the intricacies of international United States.
The Texas congressman came in second in a key vote on the first Saturday in Ames tests, coming within 152 votes of winning the first important vote in the race for the Republican nomination. Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota won the Iowa straw poll is not binding, but the strength of the organization of Paul and a restructured approach to social issues set out to be a serious player in the campaign.
“I believe in a very limited role for government. But the main reason that government exists in a free society is the protection of freedom, but also to protect life. And I mean all life,” he told a noisy crowd on Saturday.
“You can not have a relative value for life and deal with it. We cannot play God and make those decisions. All life is precious,” he said, opening his speech with an appeal against abortion to social conservatives who have a great influence here in Iowa caucuses, the leadoff hitter.
Saturday later, Paul won 4671 votes, or about 28 percent of the votes of party activists who attended a university campus for the political carnival all day
Paul Strait pushed second former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty to the third-leading Pawlenty on Sunday to abandon his attempt to challenge the president Barack Obama in November.
Four years ago, Paul sought the GOP nomination to discuss economic policy, freedom and the Federal Reserve. Since then, the feast of tea has increased and took over these issues, and some consider Paul as one of the godfathers of the movement.
“The country is bankrupt, and nobody wanted to admit it. And when you’re broke, you can not keep spending,” Paul said Thursday during a debate on Fox News.
It may lack the broad appeal that former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney or Gov. Rick Perry is calling, but finishing Paul said he could compete Saturday.
Paul usually does well in straw polls that, depending on the intensity of the fans and the organization. Its base helped him win the polls in Republican Leadership Conference in June in New Orleans in February and the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, and his supporters organized in line to secure strong finish in any contest you can find.
It is part of its effort to get rid of the idea that Paul is a marginal candidate.
2008 Paul’s campaign reached its rivals far better organized. This time, his advisers are preparing a more serious effort that draws on the frustrations of voters in Washington and fears about the economy.
His advisers are working within the system rather than against it. For example, the base camp for Paul Iowa poll was Romney the same location used in 2007. Romney won the straw poll after investing heavily on the deep pockets of prime real estate.
Paul points out that campaign won more votes this year that Romney won four years ago on his first try for the Republican nomination. This year, Romney is not activated during the poll campaign, but is looking at a launch of the campaign in New Hampshire, which hosts the first primary after the Iowa caucus, the first bat.
Paul, however, is outside the traditional boundaries of the Republicans. His opposition to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan defined as a dove. His skepticism toward the Federal Reserve has spooked Wall Street. And his libertarian views on gay rights to take the wrath of social conservatives.
Republicans also adjustments in foreign policy, arguing that it is the role of the United States to Iran’s nuclear program or the police to enforce an embargo with Cuba.
“Iran is Iceland, Ron,” said former Sen. Rick Santorum Paul during Thursday’s debate.
Paul also demonstrates a reliable foil for Democrats.
“In previous presidential campaigns, which could have pointed bangs extreme-type candidates and Ron Paul Michele Bachmann as an anomaly, (and) the straw poll in Ames does not mean much,” said Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida, chairman of the Democratic National Committee.
“But we’re looking at the base of the Republican Party now. The heart of the Republican Party is the far right,” he told CNN.
Paul, a doctor in 75 years of age, profession, not backing down.
“These survey results of straw, our growing number of surveys and our fundraising program strongly that our message is resonating with Iowans and Americans everywhere,” said campaign chairman for Jesse Benton. “Our message was the same in 2007 as it is today in 2011, but this time have quadrupled our support. This means that our message is spreading, our support is growing and people are paying attention.”
