I think that the popularity of Ron Paul is a good sign - that people are starting to realize something's wrong - but he is not the "saviour" people make him out to be. Frankly, there will not be a saviour. One guy can't change anything, even if he's elected president.
Change is only going to happen slowly, painfully, and with a lot of major failures along the way. And it won't come from the top down, i.e. a presidential election. It will come from people like us, and spread outwards. Most white people just don't have the patience or the guts to go through what's necessary, but as things get worse more people will put the nose to the grindstone. And we'll be there to tell them, "Hell son, you think you've got it bad, why in MY day....."
