I think America is ready for a change. The GOP is not significantly different from their democrat opponents - I'm amazed how they hate each other more than any time I can recall, and yet are so much the same!. The challenge is the media has to cover him so Americans/voters can hear him. The media (left and right) went out of it's way to hide Ron Paul. But when people heard what he had to say they liked him. The idea of following the Constitution had appeal on both sides when they could see that most all the problems we have today can be traced back to not following the Constitution. Our elected leaders take an oath to protect and defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic, and they are the enemy.
