I’d never vote for Ron Paul as President, but I do love having him in the race.

I intend to get a lot of laughs out of him and his more nutty supporters. In that sense, he’s comic relief.

Absolute ZERO.

So limiting the federal government & protecting our sovereignty doesn't mean anything to you, I guess.

If Paul wins a couple of primaries I'm going to laugh my ass off at FReepers' heads exploding.

Thanks for your comments. I too enjoy the fact that Paul is in the race, despite the wailing and gnashing of teeth from those who prefer to continue sucking on the government teat.

for someone who is going to have an absolute zero impact on the race, a lot of papers, blogs, chats are about him. kind of makes you wonder. someone must be afraid that all classes of people are starting to pay attention.

Ron Paul’s effect on the election is to point out that there is one small-government conservative running.

First do not fabricate things that I did not say. Ron Paul did not invent "limiting the federal government & protecting our sovereignty " those are well known conservative values and I totally support it.

Second, idiot Ron Paul is not going to win any primary, not even close. So I will keep laughing at you and all Paul supporters as I am doing now.

To the degree that his views are normal Libertarian views, his positions are worth considering and he does force, at some level, his ideas. He certainly has as much impact as Ralph Nader and that’s not an insignificant impact. Without Nader, we would have had that nutroot Algore as President.

He's the only Republican who has actually walked the walk though. His record speaks for itself.

Second, idiot Ron Paul is not going to win any primary, not even close. So I will keep laughing at you and all Paul supporters as I am doing now.

Paul is polling strong in N.H. and it's possible he could come in 2nd in Iowa, after Tommy Thompson. He has a wide, cross-section of dedicated supporters. Although he may not win the nomination, it's possible he could win a primary or continually place 2nd or 3rd and go deep, which will have an impact on the front-runner. The GOP would have to let him speak at the convention, and whoever's the front-runner would no doubt court Paul's supporters.

“Thanks for your comments. I too enjoy the fact that Paul is in the race, despite the wailing and gnashing of teeth from those who prefer to continue sucking on the government teat.”

I’m a standard issue Libertarian and he’s a little off the wall for my taste — but I do agree with some of what he says and, beyond my personal views, I think that all points of view should be heard and discussed. What’s the downside of listening to everyone? I even like having Gravely in the Dim race and hope that Nader joins the fray as well.

Ron Paul’s impact is non-existant.

He is an irrelevant expelling of gas which only the DBM has taken note outside the internet and then only for an effort to construct the illusion of “division in the ranks”.

Keep in mind that the national GOP is scared of Paul. They have undermined him and cartblocked him in every one of his Congressional elections.

Paul has his own network of donors and he doesn't need the establishment's help. Perhaps instead of bashing Paul, the GOP needs to court him and co-opt a couple of his issues. Because if Paul's not in the race, who do you think his supporters are going to support? They're going to stay home or vote 3rd party as they always do since they feel they're not represented by either the GOP or the Democrats.

Well it is really not supposed to be.

Reuters picked it up from a Blog “Liberal Values - Defending Liberty and Enlightened Thought”

But it is just the sort of writing they prefer.

Which FReepers? Jim Robinson, the founder of this site, has no use for Rudy, as I’m sure you know. Rudy=Hillary. Actually, Rudy would be more dangerous, because we’d be pressured to get behind his proposals “for the good of the party” and all that, whereas we’d naturally fight her programs.

You and I both know that's complete garbage. I'm not going to waste my time posting the facts because you don't care anyway.

Thanks for all the links so anyone on FR can see what a nut case Ron Paul is. Not only will he lose the POTUS race big time, he is being exposed for the Cynthia McKinney lunacy he shows. Ron Paul’s days are numbered as a congressman. He is not fit to serve in our Congress because he believes we brought on the 9/11 attack ourselves, he believes we would stage a Gulf of Tonkin incident to attack Iran, he thinks the 9/11 attacks should be further investigated to see if it was an inside job by our government, his desire to legalize drugs, his desire to surrender to al Qaeda in Iraq (the al Qaeda that attacked us on 9/11)and if he had his way Saddam would still be in power to rape and murder the innocent. Because of these qualities he will be replaced in his district by a real republican and not a Libertarian running as a republican to get elected.
