I’ve always liked Ron Paul. Not sure I’d want him as president due to his EXTREME isolationist tendencies with international matters(this is coming from someone who tends to be a bit isolationist). However, he’s dead on accurate when it comes to all matters domestic. One thing that REALLY hurts him is he’s a horrible public speaker.
The other candidates are good at lying. They know if they lie on the hard question people will give them a pass. Look how many times Newt, Mitt and Obama has changed position.
The truth is if Ron Paul would change position on foreign affairs and illegal drugs he would be the next President. Lies are acceptable behavior for Presidents ie: Bill Clinton. That is why Paul will never be President.
