    And what exactly has Ron Paul accomplished, anyway? Sorry, his pro-China/anti-Taiwan votes in the House mean I absolutely will NEVER consider voting for him at any time... it is in the same company as Barbara Lee in my book...

    No danger of him winning... if he wins the nomination, may as well give Obama a second term...

    I doubt he'll even run. But he was definetly correct in that statement. I especially liked how all of the CPAC audience booed when Trump said it. Made me smile ever so little.

    I have literally hurt my brain trying to figure out where you must come up with this stuff.

    It still hurts, I'm gonna take an aspirin.

    Paul has a small, energized, and surprisingly young fan base(including myself). He won't win the Republican nomination. Fox News wouldn't allow it anyway.
    Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    I would support Paul over Obama.

    Here I was all ready to like your post when I read this portion of it, and was stopped in my tracks.

    There is no reason except, with the possibly threat of death for anyone who is not mentally challenged to vote for Obama for anything above trash truck driver. He might be able to accomplish that job without royally screwing it up. But then I forgot for a moment about underground sewer worker. That might work.

    Paul has lit the "brushfires of freedom" within the Republican party. While he *might not be a president in his lifetime, he is a success by forcing the GOP to actually realize their own stated principles should mean something. The mainstream republicans only pay lip service to the constitution. They don't actually respect it with their actions. I'll make a generalization here (which always has it's few exceptions): The mainstream republicans inspire the old gray-haired old men and their subservient wives who all march to the tune of god and country regardless of the atrocities they commit to the constitution; meanwhile Ron Paul inspires the youth who still read and understand the constitution. The GOP is learning, or had better learn, from this. Otherwise they will have no future.

    But I wouldn't count the guy out in the next election. He has my vote and monetary contribution. I couldn't say the same for any other possible candidate. It is refreshing to hear a politician speak about his ideals, then to research that person's voting record to find he has never wavered. I can't think of hardly any politicians that can lay claim to such honesty.

    I was hoping to see a true Statesman emerge in the run up to the primary elections, and so far I don't see anyone who is a stand out.

    It's clear it has to be someone who could beat Obama or who ever gets the Democrat nomination in the case Obama keeps falling in the polls because he hasn't yet learned that pretending he's our dictator against the majority of American opinions is no way to win re-election.
    30% of anything is still a failing result. Last time around McCain placed 5th and won the nomination. The conservatives simply use this as an indicator of which way the nation is leaning.....and with McCain it proved to be the perfect reverse barometer. The Conservatives would have been far better off leaving McCain at the bottom of the totem pole. The nation ended up with two progressives running with both picked by the media instead of being properly vetted by THE PEOPLE, both candidates were purchased under the authorization of a false bill of ladening....as both parties were carrying a load of Manure instead of the advertised and intellectually honest statesmen they were presented as being. One was actually a progressive appeasement artist, the other Marxist, who attempted to do as promised, fundamentally change the United States of America by pushing one unconstitutional program upon THE PEOPLE after another, from the Stimulus Bill and Government take over off private Banks and Corporations to the Unconstitutional Health Care Legislation.

    I didn't say I would vote for Obama. I would vote third party. However, nominating Paul or Palin would result in a second Obama term and there is nothing you can say that would convince me otherwise...

    Please don't forget that everyone thought Clinton's days were numbered after 1994, and then the GOP royally screwed up by nominating Dole in 1996...
