Skip to comments.Ron Paul: 50-50 Chance I'll Run for President
Posted on 12/13/2010 8:21:59 AM PST by Responsibility2nd
Republican Rep. Ron Paul, known for bucking his party in favor of his libertarian principles, says there's a chance he'll make another run for the presidency.
"I'd say it's at least 50-50 that I'll run again," Paul told the New York Times in a profile of the 75-year-old congressman. His decision will reportedly hinge in part on how the economy fares.
Paul won less than 2 percent of the vote in his 2008 Republican primary presidential bid, but he won a dedicated fan base that supported him strongly online and financially. He is often credited for spawning the Tea Party movement, which swept into office this year more congressmen that hold his stringent libertarian views on issues like fiscal policy, including his son, Sen.-elect Rand Paul of Kentucky. (The Times notes that Ron Paul and Rand Paul will be roommates in Ron Paul's Virginia condo while they serve in Congress together.)

What a joke.
100% chance your supporters will again be potheads.
There is also a 90-10 chance he will fail in his bid for the GOP nomination.
Ron, save your money.
Oh goodie /s
are you kidding? he makes more money doing this then anything else.
(Obama's best 2010 hope.)
This buffoon doesnt go away
I have to tell you, I know a lot of college aged and kids in their 20s who were raised in conservative homes who are Ron Paul supporters. These kids are NOT pot heads. Two of them are my boys. They are both smart kids--engineers both of them. They don't do drugs and they follow politics closely. One of their friends ran the Ron Paul campaign in Iowa this year. I know several other young people who like Ron Paul, too. It's bizarre. I keep trying to point out how weird this guy is, but they won't see it. I think that the thing that draws these kids to him is the fact that they see the Republican party as being almost as bad as the Democratic party.
Sarah Palin, Herman Cain, Mike Pence... I vote GOP.
If Huckabee, Romney, or some other RINO gasbag designed to specifically leave Zero in office for four more years... We're pretty much f*cked anyway.
90/10 chance I’ll vote against ya
Please spare us Ron.
There may be a 50-50 chance that he’ll attempt to run, but there is less than 1% chance that he gets the nomination of any legitimate party.
I think they also see him as some kind of deep thinker, a philosophical genius if you will. His recent remarks though concerning Julian Assange shows what an idiot he and his followers are. He may have some valid points with fiscal issues, but when it comes to security, the military, and pretty much everything else, he's a nutcase.
He’s a right-wing Leftist.
(yawn....) That's like saying there's a 50-50 chance that water is wet.
The Tea Party is NOT a party.. it is a Caucus..
it was not formed it just.... WAS!... and coalesced together..
