Is Iowa Caucus a Turning Point for Ron Paul?

By: Ryan Matthew Dernick

Moving into the cusp of a new year the “2012 Presidential Election Buzz” is fervently increasing. Ron Paul (R-Texas) tied with Mitt Romney (R-Mass.) for third in the Iowa Caucus Poll at 17.4% and Newt Gingrich (R-Georgia) is still leading the way.

There Can be Only One in The End

The crowds this past week at Iowa were very warm and uproarious especially for Ron Paul where many young supporters gathered to see him. It is great to finally see the tide begin to turn in favor for the septuagenarian Paul who not only has  a perfect attendance record in Congress, but is also consistent in his political platform such as auditing the Federal Reserve or ensuring that checks and balances will not fail the “American People” and most importantly limiting our military presence in the Middle East.

Unlike Mitt Romney who wrongly claimed that no president before Obama had cut Medicare, and that Obama favored pre-1967 borders for Israel. Or Newt Gingrich who said he opposed cap-and-trade, even though he once spoke favorably of it, only if combined with other measures to curtail carbon emissions. Rick Perry (R-Texas) again falsely alleged Romney of writing that the Massachusetts health care law should be a model for the nation, and once again made his cliché apples-to-oranges comparison in the hopes of making his Texas job-creation record look more impressive. Former IRS tax lawyer Michele Bachmann (R-Minnesota) recycled a bogus claim about projected job losses under the new federal health care law.

Time will only tell who the Republican GOP 2012 Nominee will eventually be but there are sure to be more unexpected twists along the way. That is what makes political campaigns so interesting especially near the advent of another Presidential election.
