Paul has a weak spot, and its kind of important. There is no question about his intelligence. He is second only to Newt Gingrich. His foreign policy philosophy is too trusting. The tyrants are out there, and they have a lust to expand. You can't just sit back and wait for things to happen. History proves that.
That's reversed, the base actually loves him while the establishment (who owns the media) hates him. They never count his high approval ratings, drops him from the more important debates, rarely calls on him, and he gets little to no coverage. All of this hate because he doesn't want to grease the wheels of the military industrial complex..and they, along with Big Pharma and the Housing Crisis are the reasons we have such a big deficit.
While I do not agree with Ron Paul on several issues, it is clear that of all running on the republican ticket he is the only one I feel has strong values that are consistant and is an honest man..............he is the only one running that will not sell his vote............ this is why he will not win on the Republican ticket, but he might do really well on a 3rd party ticket
If the idiot Ron Paul runs,Obama will definitely win. The GOP candidates are all a joke...They're going to lose in a land slide because their ideology is only supported by the minority tea party voters. The GOP,if they win, which I highly doubtful , will probably try to stop LibiGel from getting FDA approval. Their right wing belief is that sex should not to be enjoyed but only for procreation...They're the party that stopped the research of stem cell. Every investor better pray that the democrats win again if they want BPAX get approval by the FDA.....
Only reason for Paul or others to run a third party is to assure that Obama gets re-elected. Are they that self-serving and big ego'd that they care absolutely nothing for the country?! Unfortunately, probably so.
