Iowa Caucus

According to caucus results, available at the Iowa GOP website, every COP county went either Romney or Huckabee, except for one Ron Paul county. Overall, the order GOP candidates came in was:
-Huckabee- with 34% of the total vote
-Romney- with 25%
-Thompson-13% of the vote
-McCain- with another 13%
-Paul- with 10% of the vote
-Hunter- with less than 1%
And I don't know why they had Trancredo in there; he dropped out. Ironically, he still got 5 votes.

Unless you do it by counties, and they the order is Huckabee, Romney, Paul and no-one else with any counties.

Concurrently, the Dem race was interesting, with Hillary convinced that this race was unimportant. She came in third; behind Obama and then John Edwards. Every other candidate might as well drop out with less than 1%. But that may be due to Democratic Caucus rules. If a candidate has less than 15%, his votes for that county go to someone else, or go no-where.

At any rate, I still support Paul, and have some more endorsements I'd like you to read:

“Congressman Ron Paul believes that our Constitution is the law of the land not decisions made by our Courts. As President of Our Nation, ROn Paul will obey and defend our Constitution.”
-Johnny Gardner, Director, Voice of the Unborn

“We support Ron Paul for President because he stands for what we stand for - eliminating the IRS, limiting government, stopping illegal immigration, bringing the troops home from everywhere, and restoring the Constitution to the people.”
-David R. Whetsell, President, STOPTAX.org

And the best for last...

“Ron Paul is one of the outstanding leaders fighting for a stronger national defense. As a former Air Force officer, he knows well the needs of our armed forces, and he always puts them first. We need to keep him fighting for our country.”
-President Ronald Reagan

  1. I find it hard to believe Reagan would have supported Paul's modern isolationism, especially in abolishing the CIA, etc.

  2. Wow, Will. Thanks for all the comments! I apreciate your feedback.

    1) Paul is not an isolationist. Isolationists want to have nothing to do with other nations. This is not Paul's stance. He simply doesn't support interventionism, or telling other nations how to live through occupational means.

    2) Reagan's strategy was perfectly non-interventionist when he dealt with the Soviets. The lesson we learn from him is to be prepared, but recognize that communism and (now) “Islamo-fascism” are failed systems. They will eventually fall by themselves, as the Soviets did, without us having to make bad relations by imposing ourselves on other nations.

    Yes, Reagan would approve of Paul's "modern" non-interventionist position. Can you prove that it has changed?
