Ron IS the world's best chance for the world, BUT HERE in the United States the Power Structure will not let him win.

One of the reasons Rand gave for his endorsement was that Romney openly opposed SOPA, ie an attempt to censor the Internet. I will be interested to see if Romney expands on his view as it is CLEAR that Obama will do anything in his power to give Internet control to the GLOBALIST OLIGARCHY.

I will explain, how it will end for USA, if Ron Paul will loose. Ron Paul is peaceful, normal republican, honest guy, who will make peace, who will try to restore prosperity in this USA ad it will be better for everybody - for the world, for US citizens, for republican party. Everything will be protected from bancruptcy, global world war and republicans will be richer too. If Romney would be nominated- this guy is evident scoundrel, liar, scumbag like bush or worse. USA will be ruined economically, his foreign policy is meddling to unleash global world war and after his rules it will be no usa. Republicans will be poor and nation will be poor ( naturally, if usa will survive )

RP recently came out and said he will not win the nomination and his goal is to bring his libertarian views back to the GOP as they have seemed to lost their "limited constitutional government values".

Rand has a future in the GOP and this is a smart move on his part. He did not forsake his father, after all his father won 14 times as a GOP member.
