To the Republican voters in the other 49 states, I sympathize with you. It must be painful to turn on every cable and broadcast network, read the websites and follow the blogs and realize that you mean absolutely nothing when it comes to choosing a GOP nominee for president of the United States.

Please, don't even bother. Iowa has it all under control, and what happens there, and in New Hampshire, will settle the race once and for all.

THE TRUTH ABOUT IOWA: Ron Paul Rocked The House Today

Grace Wyler|Jan. 2, 2012

Ron Paul is back in Iowa today, taking a victory lap around the state before voters head to the caucuses tomorrow night.

While his campaign has suffered some serious setbacks over the past few weeks, reports about Paul's 1990s newsletters and about his penchant for conspiracy theories haven't dampened enthusiasm here in the Hawkeye State. Paul, campaigning with his son, Sen. Rand Paul, have been greeted like rock stars, with hundreds of supporters turning out to rally in both Des Moines and Cedar Rapids.

In truth, Paul has already won. The latest Iowa poll shows the Texas Congressman neck-and-neck with Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum, basically guaranteeing that Paul will take one of the top three spots in the first-in-nation state.

But while Santorum will likely have a hard time carrying momentum past Iowa, the energy of Paul's rallies today suggest that the Paul Revolution isn't going away. The broad range of people who make up Paul's ragtag army and the depth of their feeling for the Movement suggest that this is a force that the political Establishment will have to contend with sooner or later.

In Des Moines, for example, supporters included a Texas cowboy, a Peruvian-born National Guardsman, and a troop of Iowa homeschoolers, all of whom have taken it upon themselves to promote Paul's White House bid with virtually no coaxing or coordination from the national campaign.

While a lot of Paul's fans were reluctant to talk to the media more than a few expressed concern about getting put on FBI 'lists' I talked to several supporters to find out just what it is that makes them so wild for Ron Paul.

Whats wrong with being on an FBI list? If your not doing anything wrong,than, whats the problem?
Ron Paul is a nut case and would be the worst thing that could happen to the American people.
Telling the truth is not against the law in any of the 50(57 according to Obama) states.

Well for one thing, you only have to be suspected of being a terrorist sympathizer and you can be held indefinitely without due-process according to the new NDAA. So when you ask what is wrong with being on the FBI watch-list, when you aren't doing anything wrong, why are you on the list if you aren't doing anything wrong, doesn't that seem a bit odd? Why would you want to live in a country where you can be on a gov't watchlist for living your life?
