His ‘it’s our fault terrorism exists’ attitude is a huge deal killer no matter how persuasive his domestic arguments might be.

They then will be able to successfully attach the stigma of crazy to the tea-party movement via the proxy of Ron Paul.

Hey, we don't need the enemedia to attach the Ron Paul stigma to the TEA Party movement. Freedom Works and Dick Armey have already done that.

Picture it ... tens of thousands of TEA Party patriots on the grounds of the Washington monument April 15, 2010 around 8:45 PM. The final main speaker is none other than Ron Paul. Blaring across the grounds we hear words like imperialist nation ... two bad wars ... bring the troops home from foreign nations.

No, it is not a dream. I was there and heard it with my own two ears and let out more than one resounding BOO! It was so loud one of Paul's nuts came out into the crowd looking for the person booing.

Ron Paul for ........... dogcatcher? OH HELL NO!!!

No need to yell, and Paul would be an extension of the sentence you speak of....

He would be liked by the Military cause he is not in to this Nation Building NWO crap that so many so called Conservatives seem to embrace. He would only wage TOTAL WAR when declared by Congress. I think he would be a great CIC.

We ideologues fail to realize that most people are not ideologues.

Many people would not vote for Ron Paul due to his age. His appearance shouldn’t matter; but it does.

As far as issues are concerned, Ron Paul would need to balance his rhetoric on the Fed and Iraq with some cogent remarks about taxes and spending.

People understand and care about taxes and spending more than what they see as esoteric issues.

Can I help?

Who believes America is an imperialist nation more?
Who thinks America is "occupying" foreign nations more?
Who believes 9-11 was an inside job more?
Who wants to bring all our troops home from foreign soil more?

“Of the candidates mentioned he is the best.”

Of all the candidates mentioned, he is the only one that could predictably be expected to call for repealing Obamacare. Would ANY other candidate propose downsizing anything? The country will not survive if we cannot elect a president who is willing to reign in spending.

Pataki is leading an effort. The mainstream Republicans seem to be running away and hiding in the tall grass.

I voted for Dr. Paul in the primary, and I would gladly vote for him again. There is no other candidate who understands and stands up for the Constitution than Dr. Paul. PERIOD.

With McCain you'd have had it, but with Obozo you've got it.

Dr. Paul would make an excellent Secretary of the Treasury....under the RIGHT president.

Gingrich is a twit who appeals only to ‘establishment’ Republicrats like Hannity who continuously spotlights him as a guest, along with Carl Rove.

I've said several times on here that I would go for Ron Paul as Secretary of the Treasury in a conservative administration.

But no way would I support him for president. I agree with him most of the time on economic matters. However, he's too loony on an overall scale to hold the top spot.
