I have been interested in the U.S.'s Republican's candidate nominating process for the office of the President this year.
At first I didn't think my favorite candidate [Ron Paul] had a rat’s ass chance in winning the nomination. Now I think that it is still against the odds yet also it is reasonably possible.
Some of the reasons I feel it’s an uphill battle is because:
1. RP seems to be limited as to his ability to compromise his values/positions (this is also a reason why I like the guy too)
2. The media appears to dislike him or otherwise desire to ignore him or discount him and otherwise stuck in this mindset (for whatever reasons).
3. The Republican Party’s status quo, leaders, and membership and taking into account those states won't allow independents to participate in their caucus/primaries
4. Ron’s age and physical constitution.
5. The taste and expectation for the general public for the welfare state and a higher state of government intervention in their own and others’ lives within the country (as well as their apathy or ignorance of federalism)
So if you were Ron's campaign manager what tactics/strategies would you use to win the Presidency from this point on?
