The Mouse that Roared: Why Ron Paul Won the Election

Originally posted by Romang.

In his blog today, Doug Wead (the historian and political operative who coined the phrase compassionate conservative) writes why Ron Paul won the election. Coming from inside the beltway, he pays tribute to Dr Paul's vision and the revolution and explains why it will eventally win. This is a moving piece coming from a place where we have normally been ignored and even repudiated.

It is an important sign that we are winning. It also shows how important Dr. Paul's book will be.

Well now, Republicans say, we have a nominee. That may very well be but there was only one clear winner in the confusing GOP nominating contest and it was not John McCain. The winner was Ron Paul. And the effects of his win will be felt for years to come.

Ron Paul made a classic political mistake. He told the truth. In debate after debate he pointed at his party, his president, his fellow contenders for the GOP nomination, shouting aloud like the little boy in the proverbial story, Sthey have no clothes and lo and behold, we looked and they didn"t. They were all naked.

He showed that the conservative movement has lost its way, its moral authority and its logic. He showed us that we have become a red team versus blue team. That since we have decided that this is a political war and all normal rules are suspended, conservatives can do liberal things to win it. Conservatives can run up big deficits if it helps their side win. They can dole out needless pork if it elects another Sconservative to congress. They can go to war if it makes their president look like a leader and wins him another term.
