I want to see you would support Ron Paul for four positions of power in US government. Just an experiment.

If I could slice him in half and take his domestic ideas and throw away the foreign policy part, then yes.

I don’t support Ron Paul for any political office because he is book wise and world stupid.

Another example - Jimmy Carter - a Navy Nuclear Engineer, and a idiot politician

I refused to vote Libertarian because they were not powerful in their own rights to deal with the Liberal Left. Now that the Republicans have seemingly lost all credibility I am beginning to think that Libertarian is the direction to go.

He needs to become a spokesperson for his causes. The one’s that work that is. I like some of the guy’s ideas, but he’s a bit whacked out on others. :D

Here's a quote from Howard Dean:

"I think if our policies don't change it's about as inevitable as you can expect because we're unwilling to talk to them and every week we're passing more sanctions and rules and intimidations and accusations and provocations," he said.

"We're surrounding Iran and there's very, very little understanding of that history, the American people don't know how we have been involved since 1953 in interfering with their government and it has hurt us," Paul said. "We're failing in Iraq and our government would like to have a distraction from that so they are blaming the Iranians."

Except that's not a Howard Dean quote it's a Ron Paul quote.

I’d support him in anything he decides to do. He has rock-solid principles and understands the issues that face the country and confronts them, whether it makes him popular with the special interests or not.

At least he believes in Constitutional government, like it or not.

Many of those who hate him don’t really care for the Constitution either. Not really, not when it comes down to it.

Yes on all. He would have never bailed out any company. He would have allowed the free market to freely dictate its existence.

I just want 0 out of office ASAP. Any pray John Lame McCain won’t run. He was our 08 Dole.

Easily for Governor. Thats the one place his WOT views wouldn’t matter. And unfortunately in Texas, we need a non-globalist (Trans-Texas Corridor), non-intrusive (forced vaccinations) politician. However, that being Perry’s record, I trust him a whole hell of a lot more than any Texas politician with more than 1 last name, and especially more than one who will support their gender over their ideology. We need a new Sam Houston.

If he wants to run on his personality, no. This is because he cannot win, and even if he could, he could not run the government on his own.

This is why he has to run other people in lesser office, but with his ideas.

No third party or outsider can bear to do this—to build their party momentum before they even try for the presidency. They always make the same error, which is why they always fail.

Were I to advise Ron Paul, the first piece of advice would be to name his party after his philosophy, not himself. The second piece of advice would be to strongly sponsor—throw all your weight behind—a dozen House of Representative candidates. A mid-term election is better than a presidential election.

Run them in places where both major parties are weak, and make all of them publicly swear to a “Ten Commandments” of government—that looks like the Contract With America. Simple, concise and popular 10 issues only. Make it so people in other States *wish* they could vote for a Ron Paul candidate.

With luck, he could get three or four into office. And that is not enough at first. But they must be a disciplined caucus, and work as a team on all issues. Even though they are congressmen, they are not yet national—all they do they do for the folks who elected them.

Yes, to put it bluntly, both poll driven and stubborn as mules with their core ideas. They stay away from both Democrats and Republicans, who are very skilled at corrupting novices to government. If they are approached by anyone, it is as a group, not individually.

They must be very, very disciplined to survive. But the election after that, if they have made themselves respected by their voters, they will need less support—and can give more support, hopefully to get more congressmen in those same States.

Once a critical number of party congressmen have been elected, the party has finally become national, because it is the “marginal vote” between the two major parties. From this point, it begins to win, because without its backing, neither of the two major parties has a solid majority.

The majority of issues congress deals with are petty and unimportant, so the Ron Paul congressmen can build up IOUs for supporting things they don’t care about. In exchange, they have an unfair amount of leverage to advance their issues.

Suddenly, the White House is not so far away after all.

Of course not, he just would have written the bill, added riders to pass out all the money, then gave a symbolic vote against it while winking to the bailed out companies knowing they where getting the dough based on his actions while he symbolically opposed it.

I love Ron Paul’s domestic ideas, but on foreign policy he’s a bit too isolationist. Sometimes you have to fight for your interests and self defense half a world away.

I assume that’s to say that there are very few.

I have to say that there are, in all probably, 0 9-11 conspiracy theorists on FR. However, there are some Paul supporters on FR.
