He also wins almost every straw poll. Not to mention his supporters do not leave him like the others. He doesn't ever fall in the polls, just a steady gain. I agree the system is rigged, and like you I sometimes feel hopeless about it. I won't give up on Ron Paul though. If he isn't elected I see no hope. We will just get more of the same if he isn't. I don't agree with everything RP says, but you can see his 30+ year voting record, and he votes with principles, not for lobbiest or money.
I do not feel hopeless about it, I am grateful for what I do have..and enjoy my life despite the state of politics.. as I know it could be a lot worse... A LOT. More later
