This is good news re: nullification, and it also strongly suggests that people are no longer turning to the "mainstream" for their news and views.

I would turn this argument around. If Adam and Barry next door are married, odds are that they'll be more protective of their relationship, and your husband won't be sneaking next door.

Suppose Ron Paul won the nomination and were elected; this would not be the only change, by a long shot. There are already many fans of Dr. Ron Paul and his ideas who are seeking nominations for Congress; it is reasonable to believe that they also would be elected. The composition of Congress would be changed somewhat. In 4 or 8 years of office, President Paul would demand from Congress some of the "big ideas" which he has been promoting for years - bringing our soldiers home (which he can do unilaterally), reducing the budget by $1 trillion immediately, shuttering several departments, competitive currencies, and so forth. He'd get pushback from Congress, but Congress would get pushback from those who elected Dr. Ron Paul; surely some of these ideas would be implemented. Contrast this with a Paul Ryan or Mitt Romney, candidates who propose nothing more radical than slight reductions in the rate of growth of the federal budget. You can see why supporters of Dr. Ron Paul are not getting excited by the dismal alternatives.
