He's been winning straw polls for a long time, but he still lags in the other polls..

I like Ron Paul's position on the Federal Reserve Corporation. He wants an audit. I'd like that. I'd like to know the names of the Federal Reserve Corporation's stockholders and see copies of their interest checks. I'd definitely vote for him if he could get the nomination, but that is probably a pipe dream.
Good GAWD, get off her back, she NOT RUNNING!
Perry is making strong speeches, Romney is front running by being relatively quiet, Herman Cain is a strong advocate of strong free enterprise, and it is early on with Obama looking like he is doing a tail spin toward the earth.
To think that a majority of American voters is going to see Dr. Paul's message of Constitutional principle, and not consider whom he got into bed with the last time around is fooling themselves. Think about it, Paul's most go to interviewer is Alex Jones.....ALEX JONES for Christ sake!
God help us.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

I like Paul, I think he's got a better chance this year due to a number of reasons I've detailed elsewhere. That said, he won a **** ton of straw polls in 2008 and that didn't get him within sniffing distance of actually winning. This is next to irrelevant.
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
This is completely excellent news. It really makes my day.
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
Despite Governor Romney's building a lead following the recent debate, the field is fragmented. Opportunities exist. Clearly, some candidates have stumbled (Pawlenty and Gingrich). Some have demonstrated little gravitas (Santorum and Cain). Congressman Paul's big risk is that he lacks the capability to transform a vision that enjoys passionate but narrow support into one that contains broad-based appeal. Among other things, unless he develops concrete policy ideas to translate his vision into substance, he is not likely to succeed in that task.
After the We the People Act, I don't think I could ever support Ron Paul. Especially with sodomy laws still on the books in half the states in the country. He argues liberty on one hand, but has no problem letting each state government stick its head in the bedroom if they so desire. In the state in which I currently reside, I would go to prison for 5 years if Ron Paul had his way.
