Ron Paul Seals Position as Romney Alternative


Manchester, NH (PRWEB) January 11, 2012

U.S. Rep. Ron Paul tripled his 2008 vote totals Tuesday, capturing a strong second in the New Hampshire Primary, reports Revolution PAC. Exit polls showed voters prioritizing moral character and true conservative positions, as well as independent-leaning voters, selected Rep. Paul over his rivals.

As Rep. Paul stated in his victory speech tonight, noted Revolution PAC Chair Gary Franchi, his campaign is about presenting a real challenge to the status quo. He continues to show a strong and necessary crossover appeal with independents and disaffected democrats. We congratulate Congressman Paul on his outstanding success in New Hampshire.

Rep. Paul stood at 23 percent of the vote with more than 90 percent of precincts reporting.

As candidates prepare for the South Carolina Primary January 21, polls continue to show that only Paul and Mitt Romney can prevail over incumbent Barack Obama. In a head-to-head matchup with Obama, independent voters prefer Paul, a CBS News poll suggested on Monday. A total of 47 percent of independent voters said they would choose Ron Paul compared to 45 percent of independent voters choosing Romney against Obama.

Reinforcing what is shaping up as a two-man race, Paul and Romney are the only Republican candidates who have successfully secured positions on the primary ballots of every state, reported South Carolinas The State newspaper Tuesday.

Revolution PAC is supporting U.S. Rep. Ron Pauls campaign for the Republican nomination and consistent, constitutional message with targeted TV advertising, direct mail campaigns and innovative Web promotions complemented by billboards and radio ads in key primary states. Unlimited donations by individuals, businesses and organizations are being accepted by Revolution PAC to support that effort.

Mitt Romney As Vice President?

Do we still remember Mitt Romney? Soon after Romney lost the presidential race, people stopped talking about his capabilities forgetting that he was second in the presidential race not the last one. Many people believe that Romney is much more capable that McCain in certain domains, and thus should be considered for the post of vice president, if not for presidential post. In fact, McCain has no reason to consider Romney as the only best candidate for the vice president post but Romney could prove to be the best.

In many aspects, Romney is much powerful than McCain. For example, McCain has always accepted that he needs to improve his expertise for economical issues, while everyone knows that Romney is very strong in the same. One can not say that McCain knows least about economics, but his viewpoints are somewhat low with his only admirable government.

If we consider the work of Romney in private sector, we can notice that he has proved himself a champion when it comes to economy.

His ideas have been breathtaking, budget cutters and corruption eradicators.

Among all the prospective contenders for the vice president post, he is the one who has rare experience of running his own business.

Let us look at what his company, Bain & Co.; a consulting firm, did in 1980s. This company, from the very beginning, worked very hard in that period and established itself in the market with a can-do attitude. Now this company is considered to be a giant consulting company in USA. Romney has also been interested in free trade and shows leadership. In Michigan, he was far more successful that anyone else to attract voters on the basis of free trade. Apart from this, Romney manages to bring talented executive in politics so that the country can be benefited to the maximum.

Considering all this, McCain can give our country a better vice president.
