Revolution Exit Strategies

Spokane seems to have given Ron Paul it's support, as far as caucuses go.

Now Huckabee is calling into question McCain's "dubious final results" in the caucuses - which may shoot Huckabee in the foot - and possibly push Paul to the final nomination...

But, really, does Ron Paul need the Republican Party nomination? (Read the linked article: seriously.) If the mainstream media has ties into the Republican Party, that could account for its advocacy of McCain. This two party system doesn't work and we, the people, are the only ones who can stand up to make a difference.
Those who feel the mainstream media is in charge of who we decide will be president should consider writing in their vote.

I know the argument is going to be "why vote for someone that can't win?" Now I ask you: Why vote for anyone if you can't, as a free citizen of this country, vote for the person that could bring us back to our constitution and the freedoms that our ancesters died to give to us? It's not about winning or losing at this point (and he still could win,) it's about fighting for the truth. People in history changed their government with kidnappings and bombs. The media is asking Ron Paul supporters to sway or back down on the issues, but supporters like us can stand firm, write him in on our ballots, and by doing so, wean ourselves from the need to be told what to do and how to think.

I, for one, will not be told who should lead our country and what I need in my own life.
I, for one, will use what freedom I have left to make a stand so that we can return to the principles that our founders believed in. They wrote our constitution to give the people the power to make their own decisions, knowing that freedom lies in self-government.

Preach it, Youssef! I will be voting for Ron Paul, regardless of whether his name is on the ballot or not.
