While Newt wins South Carolina, Paul campaign celebrates
I am sure many don't understand why the Paul campaign would be fairly happy with the results of the South Carolina primary tonight. Sure a stronger showing would have been a happier occasion but considering the portrait of Romney being the inevitable nominee has just been toppled, it is cause to not be too unhappy about their 4th place finish in the state. The other reason to not be crying in their soup may be quite interesting for many voters that are not aware of the current situation. Not only did Romney go down to defeat in South Carolina but he got beaten by someone that mathematically has no possibility of being able to win the nomination before the convention anyway.
You see, both Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum are not on several states' ballots as it seems maybe they were mostly running for book sales or better name recognition or possibly propping up their lobbyist credentials and...

Last evening as a captive audience of NPR, that I avoid as a rule. I listened to a talk show host interview an author: his new book was 'God's Jury-And how the Inquisitions Shaped the Modern World.' The Author spoke in some detail of the Spanish Inquistion at the time of Ferd. and Isabella. This man compared their Papal Confessors tactics with those of modern interrogation in the military and local police enforcement. He gave comparative situations from history and modern examples. He stated that Christians who were Jewish converts to Chritianity were their primary targets during the Spanish Inquisition. He was curious to me, what he was suggesting anyway, because my position is not that of the dispensationalist, but I do expect a more numerous conversion of the Jews to Christ. So does Satan who is behind the beast and false prophet

That if Gingrich and Santorum's ego's cause them to hang in dishonesly the 3-4 way choice will cause a brokered convention, where 'all bets and the will of the voters are off and cast to the wind. Then it is a battle and anything could happen and any candidate at that point could become the nominee that may not even have competed at wll this year.'
Dr. Demento or the Mormon? Really not much of a choice is there? In this case, Mitt Romney would be a much better choice. I would hope that he Or Mr. Santorum would be the Republican nominee. They would at least be credible candidates compared to Dr. Demento or the serial polygamist.
Your opinion is noted. The reality would appear to be that there are only two candidates for the GOP nomination as neither Gingrich nor Santorum are on the ballot in all 50 states. Only two candidates have the sufficient ground game in all 50 states to compete sufficient to acquire the necessary delegates to win the nomination. The choice is Dr. Paul or the Mormon.
What I find most fascinating about Ron Paul (and I'm not a supporter of his at this time) is that he appears to have by far the most diverse base of any candidate running today. I don't think he's going to win but if he did he'd probably be a pretty good president overall.
