New Hampshire Primary

Tonight was a disappointment. With 95% of the precincts reporting,
  • Dr. Paul came in 5th with about 8% of the vote,
  • Hillary Clinton, who voted for the war, came in ahead of Barack Obama,
  • John McCain, that smug warmonger, won the NH Republican Primary.
Sadly, the people of New Hampshire indicated that they are in favor of, or indifferent to, preemptive war. I don't understand why people still think it's a good idea to attack nations that pose no threat to us.

I overhead a man say yesterday that he liked some of Ron Paul's positions but he wanted to win the war. He left the store before I thought to ask him who does he want to win: the Sunni, the Shia, or the Kurds? I don't think people realize what kind of mess we are in there.

On the positive side, the main stream media and the political pundits are stunned that Dr. Paul could receive so many votes, raise so much money, became a major political force on the Internet, and create a movement for freedom and liberty that is just beginning. This is tapping into something big, really big. Americans may not yet be ready for Dr. Paul's message, but they are starting to wake up. I just hope they do so before this country passes the point of no return.
