I dare say... the support for Paul just wasn't there. The RNC threw him under the bus.
Not only the RNC. Fact is the media - domestic and international - almost completely ignored him when they found out that their rants against "radical libertarianism" didn't work out. Would love to see him as an independent candidate, but that's not gonna happen.
Marketplace economy is for everyone and the short period of time known as the german "Wirtschaftswunder" gives credit to the effectiveness of competition, freedom of choice and a big no-no to cartels and other abusive attempts to force consumer into a single corporation's food chain.
But some people don't want an economy for everyone but only for themselves. And we do know who the net tax profiteers and the creators of worthless prduction-free bond money are ...
Well, if a simple election had effect on all this .... elections would be prohibited and voters face death penalty.
