Has The Ron Paul Effect Sunk Rudy & Hillary?
The power of the Revolution threatens to bury Neo-Con darlings Clinton and Giuliani

Ron Paul supporters have mixed views on whether the Congressman's 10% showing was a success or not, but the larger issue in the aftermath of the Iowa caucus has to be the question of whether the Ron Paul effect has sunk the presidential aspirations of the top two Neo-Cons in the race - Rudy Giuliani and Hillary Clinton.

The polling had Giuliani in the mid-teens in Iowa right up until last week but he ended up with a paltry 4% - meanwhile Congressman Paul was polling at around 6% but ended up with 10%. Which candidate took away Giuliani's support? Huckabee's success only explains part of it because the strong religious right support for him in Iowa has been there all along.

It can be argued that both Ron Paul's masterful schooling of Giuliani during the debates and his success in dividing voters has effectively torpedoed the former New York Mayor's campaign.

It is now common knowledge that Giuliani is completely broke despite the fact that he hardly spent any money in Iowa. It will be virtually impossible for him to regain any momentum, and it's largely thanks to Ron Paul.

The Neo-Cons would have loved to insert another Bush clone into the White House and carry on the imperial looting of the world while America collapses and decays under the weight of its own decadence but thanks to the Ron Paul effect it's not going to happen.

Their only other option was to run a dead horse against another arch Neo-Con, Hillary Clinton, but that too is on the skids.

Obama and Edwards' anti-war rhetoric has reached fever pitch and it's no coincidence that they turned up the volume after noting the exponential popularity of Ron Paul's meteoric rise after his anti-establishment, anti-war message catapulted him to the coattails of the Republican frontrunners.

The fact that Obama and Edwards saw off Clinton in what many judged to be a surprise result just shows how hurtful Clinton's pro-war Neo-Con sympathetic record has been to her.

We're not for a moment suggesting that CFR Obama or Bilderberg Edwards offer any kind of hope for America, they are establishment lackeys like all the rest, but the numbers clearly indicate the devastating blow the Ron Paul effect has dealt to the Neo-Cons' preferred candidates, Clinton and Giuliani.

Now that the Ron Paul Revolution has slapped the so-called "national frontrunners" upside the head it's necessary to take this one step further and ask the question, can Paulism go the whole hog and bury Neo-Conservatism for good?
