The closer the first votes of the 2012 presidential campaign get, the more competitive longtime congressman Ron Paul appears to become.
It's a moment his famously fervent supporters have longed for. Plenty of others are asking: What's Ron Paul about, again?

Yep, he's still a moonbat truther who hates Israel.
Ron Paul is our McGovern or Kucinich, without the gravitas.
In their dreams.
Yes, SmithL, as a rock group once sang, “There’s A Moonbat Out Tonight”. Wasn’t a big hit, and I hope that Ron Paul isn’t either.
The danger with Paul is that he is not only anti-Israel, our one reliable friend in the Middle East (Obama got rid of Egypt and is trying to get rid of Israel, so they have something in common), it is that he is so much of an isolationist the he would allow our enemies to encircle us with hostile nations and bases to the point that we would not be able to carry on waterborne trade, nor even to keep enough of the sealanes opens to survive as a country.
If you look at the re-rise of marxist regimes in Latin America, after their having suffered serious defeats in the 1980’s and early 1990’s (Nicaragua, El Salvador, Peru, Chile, Argentina), now aided by Ecuardor, an emasculated Costa Rica, Mexico, Venezuela, Bolivia, Brazil, etc. then you will understand what I mean, and that applies just to our hemisphere.
The rest of the world is in even worse shape thanks to Obama’s cowardice and stupidity. All Ron Paul wants to do is to leave the field to our enemies who are growing bolder every day (Iran, Syria - no Spring there, boychek, Russia, Red China, North Korea, the Moslem Brotherhood and Al Qaeda all over Africa, and Red Chinese infiltration from Venezuela to Madagascar/Seychelles, and the US).
We need a leader who firstly, recognizes that there are these challenges, secondly knows who the enemy is, and thirdly, does something decisive about them.
Ron Paul is one of the “No-Nothing” offspring of American history, and would lead America down the road to destruction, with Obama cheering him on.
Ron Paul is the last free marketer left on the field. The rest are socialists
Shouldn’t you be outside spraying vinegar up in the air to break up the chemtrails?
So, that’s how you do it! And here I was thinking that I was laboring under a “systemic avoidance of reality!”
Paul’s standing up to AIPAC would likely win Republicans the American Jewish vote for the first time in memory.
I’ll let you review Ron Paul’s record on earmarks and then you can get back to me on his philosophy on the free market.
I already had my look. One look was enough for me.
Its an anomaly. Paul falls flat in S. Carolina.
If Paul were to get the nomination, it would end the Republican Party.
He’d get about 5% of the vote, and a third party candidate would get 45 to 55%, depending on who it was.
I won’t vote for Paul. The Paul-tards can take that straight to the Fed and bank it.
I think you’re right. At least you are unless the media full court press was able to sway an awful lot of people. The media would love very little more than doing that.
Ron Paul have a pretty good explanation about it. Earmark is better than allowing the Fed administration to decide where the money go
