Republicans have for quite a long time allowed the Democrats to define them as the “against” party. Grumpy old white men against stylish, urban, open minded professionals. Rich people against everyone else. Red against blue. (And red is not a conservative color. “Better dead than red,” did not mean better dead than Republican. A “red state” is North Korea not Texas.)
The GOP has been one step behind, countering the Dem zig and zag. A party on its heals. This is a way to lose.
Say what you will about the Breitbart suite of online media. Are they over the top sometimes? Absolutely. But do they also do great reporting and interesting and valuable news? Without doubt. The attached article is an example of this.
I have been very open in my support for Ron Paul. I personally believe he is the last best chance for us to save the remnant we have of the Republic and from there reestablish it to what it should be. I also think that Ron Paul has an excellent chance of beating Obama. He might even have a better shot than Romney.
One of the biggest stories not being covered by the old media is the contrast in crowd numbers between the 2 GOP rivals. Ron Paul, week after week is getting crowds of 5,000, 6,000, nearly 10,000 to hear him speak. Romney can barely fill a college lecture hall. And this is why Romney’s camp is getting nervous.
I have watched Ron Paul for a very long time and one trend I see over and over is the split that emerges between people of roughly under the age of 40 and those who are older when his name is mentioned. I have no polling data to back this up, but young people seem to like Ron Paul and older people seem not to.
