Ron Paul to Run for President
 
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]I certainly dont agree with all his views buts he is the most ingenuous person (much less a politician) I have ever heard speak, and the only politician I have ever liked. Candidates and networks are going to be forced to take him much more seriously this time, not because his likelihood of getting the nomination is substantially increased, but because a large faction of Independents and Republicans absolutely loves this guy and the ideology and sincerity he brings to the table.

From his wiki -
[COLOR="DarkGreen"]In the late 1960s, Paul and his wife moved to Texas, where he continued his medical work. Trained in obstetrics and gynaecology, Paul then began his own private practice.

I dont think we've ever had a president that was a gynecologist.

I'm a big fan of his, and I supported him the last time around.

Now, along with former NM Governor Gary Johnson also on the table, there are TWO anti-war libertarians running for the nomination in the GOP. And that's a damn good thing as far as I'm concerned.

Ron Paul is a good guy, but he just doesn't have broad appeal. And for good reasons. The thing that makes him appealing to many, his Libertarian platform, would be a major weakness when it comes to foreign policy, education reform, and the role of the Fed. His solution to nearly everything is to drastically reduce the role of or completely dismantle government. That's just not practical. If Ron Paul were president, we don't ever catch bin Laden.

A lot of his rhetoric sounds good to the average voter, but when you boil it down to actual policy and how it affects our everyday lives, some of his positions are really kind of dangerous, in my opinion.

LOL. Perennial candidates Ron Paul is running? Noooo.

He will be interesting and entertaining at the GOP debates. Honestly though, I don't understand why he keeps running as a Republican. He will never convince enough of them to vote for him.


Ron Paul 2012!

[B]Ron Paul 2012![/B] [/quote]

[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]I dont think he is running with the thought that hes gonna get the GOP ticket. Hes running because he is shaping the GOP ticket. [/FONT][/COLOR]

[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Whats attracted new conservative to the republican party and whats helped re-energize the republican party is the Barry Goldwater/facially conservative/personal freedoms/Tea Party like ideology that Ron Paul has largely become the spokesperson for since GW took his second term. The November 2010 elections were shape by this ideology and hopefully the congressional and presidential 2012 elections will be too. The HUGE strides he made for the fiscal conservatives and civil liberty types in the last election are now coming to fruition, hopefully his rhetoric this time around will resonate even louder for future legislators and legislation. [/FONT][/COLOR]

[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Also depending on who gets the ticket I think he stands a good chance of being nominated for security of state or another appointed position….. possibly even vice president. [/FONT][/COLOR]

I know its because of Bush. Obama's failures are all because of Bush. Obama does no wrong because of Bush. Bush made him do it. The buck stops with Bush. Lets beat around the Bush. Bush made me do it. Funny when it was killing Osama it was Obama only but everything bad that happens is because of Bush.

Bottom line is Obama is getting my vote unless the Repubs can put someone fresh up with some good ideas.

Newt is a big fat effing loser, Mitt Romney ehhh fox hates him cause of health care so he wont garner any support, Ron Paul the isolationist, Pawlenty is plain garbage and not strong enough, Huckebee F*ckabee, so far the field is extremely weak. Palin and Trump just make me giggle. Not looking too good.

I didn't say it was because of Bush. Bush actually contributed to the current economic recovery by getting TARP passed. As much as Tea Party types and so called fiscal conservatives bitch and moan about the deficit, had it not been for TARP we're facing one helluva unemployment picture and tons of banks would be out of business. Not to mention GM bouncing back and about to reclaim their spot as number auto maker. So I think TARP was a policy success.

See, I gave your boy some props.

ya know its kinda funny cause i saw alot of old Bush cabinet people and advisors out heavily touting Bush policy this past week. Ole Ms Rice and All time liar Karl Rove even said Bush was the reason Osama was killed. Man, thats rich coming from a White House who spent most there time fighting an unjust war in Iraq and the other half other time making excusing of why were in Iraq. Wow I laughed my ass off thinking how poorly the Bush adminstration failed at killing Bin Laden.
