Why Ron Paul draws big crowds but fails to catch on

•, By Nia-Malika Henderson
 At first glance, Benjamin Stolz would appear to be the perfect prize for Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul.
Stolz, a freshman at the University of Maryland, agrees wholeheartedly with Paul on a range of issues — from seeing foreign intervention as too costly to agreeing that government spending should be cut. Stolz, an enthusiastic 18-year-old who has never voted, also admires Paul’s frankness and the Texas congressman’s ability to draw diverse crowds.
And Wednesday night, Stolz attended his first political rally, waiting in a long line at the Ritchie Coli­seum in College Park to hear Paul speak, joining nearly 2,000 other students who chanted “End the Fed” as the candidate took the stage.

Some of RP's political views are too "different" than present-day American views to feel comfortable with. It's because present-day Americans are way different than Americans at the time of the founding of the United States.

Ron Paul is not dynamic and forceful. People don't realize that an emotional candidate or President probably would not be a logical one.

Ron Paul's age is a negative point in the eyes of many people. Yet, history shows that RP's experience in doing what is right, and understanding the points that would bring success to America, are far ahead of all other candidates and potentials.

So, as usual, it is the people who are working against themselves. And it is the big business fascists who are helping the people to work against themselves.
