In today's fast paced world, how many actually see the damage they cause to themselves, their loved ones, and of course, their environment. Even Politicians are more often than not to try to "stay the course," which is nearly impossible for most people. The Average U.S. citizen has a good chance of changing their mind on key issues more than once. I bet you have even switched sides on something once you were better educated on the topic. What that particular subject was, is completely irrelevant.
This is the first time in my lifetime, I am seeing the GOP trying to block their strongest presidential candidate, none other than Ron Paul. I too was skeptical of the guy from my first chance to participate in a general election in the year 2000. Even then people were bad mouthing Ron Paul, saying things similar to what is still being said today. How Ron Paul doesn't seem electable? Nothing is further from the truth, in fact I believe it's the exact opposite. Dr. Paul is the most electable, out of all the candidates in this race, including Obama, who received my vote in '08.
