'It's awesome' to see Ron Paul in South Carolina

From The State:

SPARTANBURG, S.C. — Madison Evans cupped her cell phone with her sparkly blue fingernails and shot photos of U.S. Rep. Ron Paul of Texas during a campaign stop here Tuesday.

"It's the first time I've seen him, and it's awesome," said Evans, a 20-year-old Greenville waitress, subtly bouncing on her tiptoes with excitement.

"We young people are awake," said Evans, who posts articles about the long-shot Republican presidential candidate on Facebook daily. "We are all a big family when it comes to Paul. He's talking about peace. He's talking about giving us back our rights that have been stripped from us."

Evans is part of Paul's South Carolina following. It's a following that looks and speaks differently than those of the other GOP candidates.

Many are vocal, energized and barely old enough vote, painting their windshields with pro-Paul messages and honking car horns outside campaign stops like teenagers on their way to a football game.

Often, they are new to the political process, inspired by Paul's brand of live-and-let-live libertarianism.

"who posts articles about the long-shot Republican presidential candidate"

Long shot? The guy who effectively tied for second in iowa, got second in New Hampshire, and raises more money than anyone but Mitt? But Paul's the longshot? Stop buying into the Bull, Marc.

ummmm longshot?
I dont like the way the media always slips that in there regardin Ron Paul's chances of winning. Technically every candidate is a long shot except for Romney but the term is only used in conjuction with Paul.
ALSO when people boo Paul on his foreign policy views they are really booing the troop! I thought everybody was supposed to support the troops..or is that only when they are getting killed on the barttlefield? everybody knows the troops support Paul by a WIDE margin with their money so maybe people should start to pay attention to that and support the troops by supporting Ron Paul for prez.

No GOP candidate can win without Ron Paul Supporters! PERIOD! Mitt said he would have 'Signed 2012 NDAA' as president. He just lost all Ron Paul Supporters. The second the GOP rejects Paul by not electing him as their nominee, the Libertarian Party will put in on the ballet in all 50 states. Dr. Paul doesn't even have to run as a 3rd party. He will be written in and we will vote Ron Paul! It's you choice GOP. Ron Paul or Obama!

I am 39, a Christian conservative, and I am also for Ron Paul. The media thinks that we will support the "nominee". They couldn't be more wrong!

Ron Paul is my ONLY choice! That will not change.

The Election will be rigged, You will be told that you are the only lunatic that supports Ron Paul. The bought and paid for Media will convince you of this. The US will be fully absorbed in the Globalist One World government ran by the UN. Your gun rights will be taken away. All the blood sacrificed by patriotic Americans over the centuries to support and defend the Constitution will have been wasted. Because you were blinded by the circus called television. You may as well apologize to your grandchildren right now, for losing the most free and just country the world has ever known. Unless by some miracle of God, people turn off the tv and study the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and realize what we are about to lose.

Solamente Ron Paul puede salvar a los Estados Unidos y al resto del mundo.

Dios bendiga America!
