THE JEENYUS CORNER
Suddenly, Ron Paul’s supporters are relevant.
You remember Ron Paul — that old Republican guy who ran for president. His non-interventionist foreign policy ideas were considered kooky during the Republican debates but have since landed him interviews on Fox.
He is the guy who barely cracked 10 percent in the primaries but managed to attract tens of thousands of people, from all walks of life, to his rallies during the primary season. People lined up to hear Paul speak about free-market economics and Constitutional government.
Yet his lively supporters were dismissed as “Paulbots” and “Paultards.”
But if breitbart.com, glennbeck.com, and others are correct, the Republican nominee, Mitt Romney, may have difficulty defeating Barack Obama if the Paulbots don’t fall in line and vote for Mitt.
Various commentators are pleading with the Paulians (and other libertarian and Constitutionally minded voters) not to split the vote and give Obama four more years.
I believe all voters should cast their vote for whomever they wish. But isn’t it curious that after being ignored by the media and abused by the GOP, the Paulians now are being courted (or harangued) because the GOP needs their support.
Based on comments on the Daily Paul, most Paulians won’t be swayed. They see the recent haranguing as evidence that, no matter what they do, Ron Paul and his supporters will be used as scapegoats if Mitt Romney — the man who has spent millions running for president for the last six years — manages to lose the election to a wholly incompetent incumbent.
One wonders: If Romney is the ideal moderate candidate who can attract hordes of independents to the GOP, why does he need the fringe Paulian/libertarian vote in order to win the presidency?
Until now, the media have ignored these “liberty” voters, presumably because they are a minority in the country. But now we discover that they are numerous enough to swing the election by sitting it out or voting third party.
If this is true, why hasn’t Romney vigorously tried to attract these voters?
If Romney loves the Constitution, as the Breitbart article suggests, why hasn’t he spoken against the detention provisions in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)? Those provisions allow for American citizens to be detained indefinitely without trial, even on American soil.
