Conservatives and Republican elites in the state are divided over who to support for the GOP nomination, but they almost uniformly express concern over the prospect that Ron Paul and his army of activist supporters may capture the state’s 2012 nominating contest — an outcome many fear would do irreparable harm to the future role of the first-in-the-nation caucuses.
I find it hilarious how these "Conservative and Republican elites" are panicking at the possibility of losing control over the masses.
It's about time these "elites" got their butts kicked and dragged through the streets to the stocks. Under their leadership(I use the term loosely) the Republican party has become nothing more than a pale version of the Democrats, who in turn have become Progressives, or Socialists, or Marxists.
These elites would continue to have vast influence over the likes of Romney and Gingrich, better known as Tweedledum and Tweedledee, but would have none over Ron Paul.
I have no idea whatever if Ron Paul is nationally electable or not, but if the rest of America is as fed up with the Washington insiders and the Washington elites as the average Iowa citizen, I can understand why chicken little is panicking.
Since the choices offered by either party in the last few elections has been hardly more than a personality selection from the same bucket of totally controlled robots, I have often threatened to write in Mickey Mouse as my choice for president.
Maybe this election I actually will.
