The Saying "Ron Paul is not electable", so often repeated by the Lame-stream media and among the GOP, is starting to lose ground as the constitutional Congressman of Texas gains momentum along the campaign trail. However, is there a GOP plot to derail Ron Paul from the campaign trail, and oust him from the Republican party?
In an RT News interview, Julie Borowski, a Ron Paul supporter explains the reasons Ron Paul is so popular among the younger generation of voters, and a real thorn in the side of the GOP establishment party.
When asked why it is that the oldest running candidate's message resonates so well among younger people, Julie replied:
"Yeah, it is kind of strange to see a 76 year old man very conservative, very religious, get so much support from young people. And I think one of the reasons is because Ron Paul tells it like it is. He doesn't sugar-coat things. He has a consistent record. He's gonna do what he says. In his plan to restore America, he wants to cut $1 trillion dollars in the first year alone. He's talking about big ideas, and the other candidates are not."According to RT News, there seems to be a threatening force among GOP Republicans to push Ron Paul out of the campaign, and from the Republican party. The fear by the GOP that Ron Paul may actually win has pushed them to send out a petition calling for Ron Paul to drop out of the campaign, and to leave the GOP.
The Petition states in part:
We have had enough of the stupid demands of the those who support Ron Paul for President. The time has come for true Conservatives to Rise Up and Take a Stand!In the petition, threats were also aimed at Senator Rand Paul, promising to replace him with a true Republican as well. It is apparent that the type of Republican would then have to be one more in line with the status quo.
It is our Duty to Defend the Integrity of the GOP! These radical leftists that back Ron Paul will not get away with demanding the GOP nominate Ron Paul or else!
Therefore, the REAL Conservatives of the Republican Party hereby DEMAND that Ron Paul END his Presidential Campaign at once, and Exit the GOP along with his radical cult followers/supporters!
When asked if this type of threatening language would work against Ron and his supporters, Julie said:
"No, what is going on right now is there is an ugly fight between establishment Republicans and true conservatives. Ron Paul is a threat to the establishment. He is dangerous to the status quo. And they don't want to have a debate over one policy, and so what they're doing is they're trying to marginalize Ron Paul and his supporters, calling us racists, anti-Semitic. Calling us Leftists - basically name calling with no facts to back it up."RT points out in the interview that one of the complaints being brought against Ron Paul is that he is pulling votes away from the other candidates. (Isn't that the goal of each candidate?- to pull enough votes away from the other candidates in order to win?)
While there are those on the establishment side hurling threats, there is also another strategy being proposed by republican supporters like former CEO of GE, Jack Welch, who simply want to drive Ron Paul out in a very gentle way, so as not to offend his supporters in hopes that they will then turn to whichever Rino Republican is left to finish the race.
Mr Welch had this to say in a news clip aired on RT:
" Ron Paul is going to leave exit-left on this stage sometime down the road before August, or in August, and their GOP doesn't want to lose those wonderful voters that he's brought on board, so how well they treat Ron Paul going forward is a very big deal." (or big F'n deal if you're Biden)
Julie Borowski states how for years the GOP has tried to gain the support of younger voters, and now that Ron Paul has started a fire in the hearts of younger voters to join the Republican party, the establishment Republicans are now marginalizing them and resorting to name calling. She said " That strategy is probably the dumbest thing I can think of."
While Obama brought in many young voters in 2008 with his "Yes We Can" rhetoric, it is Ron Paul with his "message of freedom" that will win the hearts of the younger generation in 2012!
