The Kansas Republican caucus is all set for Saturday, March 10, 2012. All Republican presidential candidates are busy with all the preparations for the coming BIG EVENT! The Kansas republican electorate is eagerly waiting to find out how each of the candidates – Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul, will fare at the end of the caucus.
For Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum, it’s expected to be a close fight. Gingrich will not give either Romney and Santorum an easy win! This three-tier tight battle on the nomination will surely keep the Kansas Republican electorate up on their toes.
But what about Ron Paul? Ron who? He’s another moderate GOP presidential nominee trying to give Romney, Santorum and Gingrich a run for their money. Or so we hope.
Ron Paul is scheduled to speak at the Lied Center on Friday, a night before the much-awaited Kansas caucus after the Super Tuesday’s ten-states primaries, where he hopes to somehow get the Republican voters have a change of heart after listening to him talk about his idea of programs, agenda, priorities, etc. if he gets elected to the highest office in the country.
David Conway, president of the KU Youth for Ron chapter, believes that campaign sorties or rallies like this usually ends up with a lot of attendees changing their hearts and minds over their preferred candidate. Ron Paul’s campaign team hopes to get more votes from this rally and another one happening at the Tea Party Convention in Wichita on the same day just before the event at Lied Center.
It is in rallies like this where voters get to hear what these candidates will promise for them to get chosen as the final presidential bet. For Ron Paul, who’s hardly heard of, media events like these will get him some attention he so badly needs if he wants to remain in the race. It is important for Ron Paul to give an impressive speech in both events so he could sway rival’s voters to his camp.
Although, it looks like most of the Republican voters have yet to see Ron Paul’s value in this presidential race, there are some who have analysed each and every candidate and their platforms and arrived at the conclusion that Ron Paul will actually be a better choice than Romney, Santorum and Gingrich.
This is what they said :
For Ron Paul, the healthcare system is something that is close to his heart and mind as he has intimate knowledge on this, having his own OB-gyne practice.
He is anti-abortion and honors life as his profession dictated. For him, abortion is a matter that should be handled by the states and not the federal government. He delivers babies so how could he agree to abortion?
He had implemented a “sliding scale payment plan” for patients with difficulty in their finances.
His constitutionalist background allowed him to know the ins and outs of the constitution which is vital in the presidency.
Lacking in some candidates, honesty is something he is proud to have. People who knew him will attest to this.
The Kansas Republican electorate should see these qualities of Ron Paul so they can help choose the right candidate for the November 2012 Presidential election.
