Ron Paul Storms Iowa

As I have been saying, this thing is NOT over -
Now three people have won Iowa during this primary season. Last night, Ron Paul’s delegate finagling strategy paid off as he guaranteed himself at least half of the delegates in Iowa and Minnesota.

Remember, back in January, Mitt Romney was declared the winner of the Iowa caucuses by eight votes. This official declaration was made by the state Republican Party chairman, Matt Strawn, despite ongoing discrepancies in the way that county commissioners and the state commissioners were reporting vote totals. Rachel Maddow has some of the footage of the news stations that night re-learning how to cover the complicated Iowa voting system (the video seems to be going viral, btw, as at 9 a.m. the video only had 300+ views, but as of 10 a.m. was pushing 9,000).
The Real Effect
Considering that the Republicans are starting to get behind Marco Rubio, a man that according to the Constitution (You know that thing that Republicans love to wipe their rear-ends with when it comes to curtailing their actions? Patriot Act, wiretapping, etc....) is INELIGIBLE to be vice-president, I fully expect the red criers to suddenly support 'popular election' and not the system that's in place. (Delegates)

The fact of the matter is that just like the Democrats, most Republicans support freedom right up until they disagree with it. Coincidentally, that is not freedom or justice or whatever, but a Constitutional dictatorship.
