Skip to comments.Ron Paul doesn't pose a threat until he can break through to the senior citizen vote

In most polls Paul is neck and neck with the frontrunners among voters 18-35 but then is trounced with voters over 50 and especially over 65 where he garners almost no support.

Yes, if we can only convince the geezer set to accept heroin sold at 7-Elevens, legalizing whorehouses in every community and giving the finger to Israel and every overseas ally, Ron’s in like Flint!
IMHO, the key question is if/when Paul drops out, and whom he endorses..
He’s broken through to the blog pimps, I see.
Paul won't endorse the actual Republican nominee. My guess is he runs indie. Paul is not really a conservative and doesn't belong in the Republican party in the first place.
The threat Paul poses is if he pulls a Perot (no insult to Ross intended). Even shaving 1% from our side in a close election could give it to nobama.
This is is political swansong, and if he ran as an indie..he'd really hurt his son's future in the party, and I think the other son is running for the House. Nope..Paul will play nice this time.
Also, whule he's nuts on foreign policy, on fiscal matters he's pretty much spot on. So, maybe he'd like an Asst`Treasury Sec slrt, or even to a FedReserve post..that would asre make for some interesting meetings..
Last time it was Ralph Nader, Cynthia McKinney, and Chucks Baldwin.
I am voting for RP in the GOP primary, despite the fact I disagree with his foregin policy stuff.
He is the only one, the ONLY ONE, talking about dismantiling FEDZILLA
I'm pretty sure he didn't. I just saw him on the Fox News roundtable the other night and he refused to rule it out. He only said he had no plans to run as an independent - which is obviously what a current Republican candidate would say. I recall the table kind of laughing at how he parsed the statement to leave himself an out.
You make a good point about his son though. If he runs indie it really might hurt Rand's future in the party, so that might effect his decision.
I think I saw it on TheHill..I’ll do a google search..Ron Paul Third Party..you can try also..see what wecome up with..
Older Voters = well informed
Fear not my FRiend
As you know, Paul drones are not Conservatives. America's anarchists and malcontent radicals will pull votes from O'Zero more than any GOP'r.
Ron Paul photo’s are needed on this thread.
There isn't anybody.
You forgot the "end sarcasm" tag.
Are these the same people who strongly believe in Socialist Insecurity, Mediscare, and all the rest?
FYI..it’s on his own website...ronpaul.com...he dismisses any talk of a third party run...
Why would seniors support Ron Paul? They have the least to benefit from fiscal responsibility. Ron Paul’s foreign policy is untenable, but if we are going to be honest, the GOP’s fiscal policy is untenable as well. We are going to have a fiscal crisis unlike anything anyone can imagine and it is inevitable unless we change. I can’t support Ron Paul, but unless we start to get onboard with his financial message, aka cutting TRILLIONS NOW! then either my or guaranteed my children’s generation are going to suffer miserably.
