Sounds like Ron might be a little jaded from all the trouble the GOP caused him in '08. I don't think it's so obvious that the Democrats won't nominate Bernie. Unlike Ron, Bernie's numbers are neck and neck with the lead candidate. There are a lot of people behind Bernie, and his campaign is actually like a more successful version of Ron's, despite the fact that the gulf couldn't be much wider between them on size of government and economics.
I think Ron will be surprised when Bernie wins. I have a lot of respect for Ron Paul but he can't know what the people want...damn the establishment political parties! It's time for a "Political Revolution" not just the R3VOLution that he and now his son are calling for...it's not as practical/appealing as Bernie...#FeeltheBern
Its funny but even though they are on an opposite spectrum on the role of government they still hit the same chords that have made them both popular. Staying out of the affairs of other countries by refraining on dancing to the beat of the war drums, and the major problems with corporatism plaguing the country, now if i could just hear sanders say that the patriotic act is an abomination i could go all in so to speak
I disagree. Ron Paul (like most Republicans, even though he is now a Libertarian) advocates a small government with minimum government interference while Bernie Sanders is all about large government and socialistic policies. Now by using the word 'socialist' I am not saying it's necessarily bad but at the core, Sanders policies are in line with a Socialist party.
Bernie won the popular vote in NH but Hillary has the Super Delegates which void the popular vote.
The reason why Bernie is doing better than Ron Paul did is because Bernie will give people more welfare. There are ALOT of people who are either on or would like to be on welfare and not have to actually work to survive. They have been convinced that the 1% owe them.
Paul is about teaching people to fish. Not giving it to them.
