Here is the thing. People are scared to vote for Ron Paul. Why? Because voting for Romney, Perry, Gingrich, et al. is like voting at Burger King. You can have any variety of Freedom as long as it is what is on the “Menu”. Is that truly how you want to live your lives? Choosing from the “acceptable” choices?
A vote for Ron Paul includes one additional item, the responsibility that comes with Freedom. People are conditioned to assume that their failures will be cushioned by .gov.
As to the “Homeschooling” comment - that refers back to a previous thread on how “Homeschoolers” are out in force for Ron Paul. Must have gotten eaten in the wash.
Seriously - If Ron Paul were the Republican Choice @ a National Level - would all the “haters” vote for Obama?
No, they, including my self, would vote third party. Of course, Paul will probably go indy if he doesn't get the GOP nod.
A vote for Paul guarantees Iran the tools to ignite this world on fire....with his blessings.
He is a fool, his supporters are fools.
If you think that he is going to "give" you back you freedoms, you're sadly mistaken.
Freedom is taken, not given, wise up.
Yeah, because most people are sensible enough to know when to be afraid of a loony politician. Most people will never vote for Paul because of his insanely stupid foreign and defense policy views. Most conservatives are never going to support a man who thinks the traitor Bradley Manning is a hero and a patriot.

If that happened (and it won't), most will vote 3rd party. In general, I do not believe in 3rd party voting. For the most part I think it is a useless cop-out. However, in the case of Ron Paul versus Hussein, I might have to go 3rd party. The reason being is simple. Ron Paul will never get his domestic agenda passed. He will get nearly nothing done on that front. What Ron Paul actually could do is put in place his incredibly dangerous foreign and defense policies. Congress can't really stop much of what he wants to do on that front. So if we get Paul, we are likely to get the worst of Paul rather than the actual good stuff like his domestic and regulation cuts. All of this is just a mental exercise though. Ron Paul will never win the GOP nomination. He is just not even close to representative of most Republicans - which makes perfect sense considering the fact that Ron Paul is a libertarian and not a conservative.
