[QUOTE=Jetworks;4060811]What if you're willing to pay extra?
OT, as a longtime registered (moderate) Conservative, I find some of Paul's stuff to be genuinely appealing. As a whole, I find him tiresome and a bit wacky. I certainly don't see him as being influential in the next election beyond giving some of the more "electable" candidates talking points they wouldn't normally have considered.[/QUOTE]
This is exactly right. Paul at least brings something different to the table. None of these GOP candidates are worth a damn and all of them will lose if chosen to face the Obama train wreck.
But God forbid someone come to the table with something other than the same old tired crap that goes no where. The crap that took what should be the dominant party and reduced it to nothing in 2008. God forbid you come with even a little bit of outside-the-box thinking. How dare you, when in reality that's exactly what we need.
Love or hate his politics, there's one thing for certain about Ron Paul. He is in it to work for his own beliefs. He isn't there to win over mass appeal. He isn't in it for the lobbyists. He's in it because he has a core belief in defending The Constitution to a t.
Funny thing about this thread is the of all the current candidates, the views of Paul are by far most closely aligned with the opinions that WF has expressed here in the past. Maybe Ron kicked his dog.
