The dangers of idol worship... . People compiled all of their principles and fell in love with a man who embodied those principles. They expected that all they had to do was vote Ron Paul into office, and like a king, he would put the other branches of government back into their place, would get all new justices to the supreme court, would turn power back over to the states, and would eliminate the Fed. The truth is that no man could have done all of that within the constraints of the presidency.
So now we have RP supporters talking about not showing up to the election or claiming that it doesn't matter who gets elected. Well, nothing could be further from the truth. Vote to help the best man win who actually can win with your vote.
