Elections to determine the Republican nominee (challenger) are going on now. It's an awful system that allows to much medial influence and also allows a candidates showing in the previous state to build momentum in other states. Primary elections were originally scheduled days/weeks apart because of the time it took to travel to campaign hot spots. Now it just becomes a reality TV show. Presidential elections are in November and the winner will be sworn in to office in January.

Let's hope he does. He won't win but enough people will vote for him to show we're sick of the same ol' shit.

If anyone other than Paul get's the nomination then Obama will win. Guaranteed. Too many registered Republicans that would have voted for Ron Paul will vote for Obama. It'll be 2008 all over again. If Paul doesn't win the nom I could see him running as an Independent, not a Libertarian.
