Skip to comments.Could Ron Paul Take Down Sarah Palin?

Long before the tea party movement grabbed half a dozen Senate seats, before its early proponents ever even dreamed of wearing Colonial-era garb in public, there was longtime Texas Republican Ron Paul, the one guy in Congress trying to abolish the Federal Reserve and shrink the government into near nonexistence. Paul won a devoted-bordering-on-cultish following during his 2008 presidential run, one which, obviously, didn't work out. But now Paul is telling the Times that "its at least 50-50" that he'll try again in 2012, and this time, with the movement built largely on his libertarian philosophy now a real force in American politics and expected to be decisive in the Republican primaries.

KOOK PAUL needs help to tie his shoes.
Suicide is not a viable foreign policy...
until he wakes up to that point, he’ll remain a KOOK!!!
Isolationism is a foreign policy adopted by a nation in which the country refuses to enter into any alliances, foreign trade or economic commitments, or international agreements, in hopes of focusing all of its resources into advancement within its own borders while remaining at peace with foreign countries by avoiding all entanglements of foreign agreements. In other words, it asserts both of the following: 1. Non-interventionism Political rulers should avoid entangling alliances with other nations and avoid all wars not related to direct territorial self-defense. 2. Protectionism There should be legal barriers to control trade and cultural exchange with people in other states.
Nonintervention or non-interventionism is a foreign policy which holds that political rulers should avoid alliances with other nations, but still retain diplomacy, and avoid all wars not related to direct territorial self-defense. This is based on the grounds that a state should not interfere in the internal politics of another state, based upon the principles of state sovereignty and self-determination. A similar phrase is "strategic independence". Historical examples of supporters of non-interventionism are US Presidents George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, who both favored nonintervention in European Wars while maintaining free trade. Other proponents include United States Senator Robert Taft and United States Congressman Ron Paul.

Dr. Paul is a non-interventionallist, not a isolationist - there's a difference.
You heard it hear first: Paul will surge from 0.8% of GOP delegates to as much as 1.6%, minimum. Take it to the bank.
Not any more than a Red Rider BB Gun could take down an F-22.
You can dream. I'll just laugh. Give it up, pissant.
Exactly..LOL! Actually, what will destroy Sarah is having her hair fixed by Bristol in the field, that there is a showstopper, the end, she might as well pack it up and go back to Alaska and stay and call Barbara Bush and tell her thanks for the advice....ROTFLMAO!
Palin might not run, and she might not win the primary if she does run, and she might not win the general election if she does win the primary... but no matter WHAT happens with Palin, it’s not going to have ANYTHING to do with ANYTHING that Ron Paul does or doesn’t do.
That’s the only way I have ever heard him speak of our troops.
In a word, NO
I like to see a debate between the two it would be like watching a cage match between a grizzly and an old goat!
Gov. Palin has my vote, if she wants it.

Find me one statement I’ve ever made in support of Ron Paul for President. It does not exist.
Dr Paul was just appointed to the very position his country needs him in now.
And that position is NOT president.
I thought that Friday was the day for the Official Silliness Thread.
Problem is Ron Paul attracts all sort of whackos
Aka 911 truthers
Rats would crucify him using these whackos to paint all
republicans as crazy
Be Christine O’Donnell times 100
