I guess it must be the result of our public fool system that so few can analyze obvious numbers, and come to logical conclusions. Let's just focus on how to defeat Obama. There are roughly 72 million registered Democrats, and 55 million registered Republicans. It's clear the Republicans are going to need all the support they can get from outside the party. Only one GOP candidate can carry the GOP, Libertarian, Green Party, Constitution Party, the majority of the independent, and even 5-10% of the Democrat vote. Now we can argue, call each other names, and say derogatory things about the candidates, but in the end it comes down to rather or not we REALLY want to stop Obama. Ron Paul 2012!
