Check out this question he was asked during the 2008 primary: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qlacFmRGPgI
Totally absurd thing to ask. No other candidate was asked that.
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.
Ron Paul Wins Presidential Straw Poll at CPAC
So? He won in '08 also, doesn't mean a thing.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

How is it that he hasn't even announced that he's going to run and already the same campaign pushing that it's impossible that Ron Paul get elected when he's already been elected to office a number of times??? I mean, this guy's got a track record for excellence, so I understand that Ron Paul is over-qualified to be president, but that doesn't mean that if he was given an HONEST chance, instead of this defeatist attitude that Ron Paul can't win...
He also can't get asked fair questions, he can't be debated on issues, he can't be allowed a fair shot because he represents a risk to the status quo... when he does get elected, the bigger worry is that he'll be assassinated before he can truly do any good.
The media can't stand that there's a REAL candidate that ACTUALLY has a level of integrity, and so the demonization campaign starts early.
There are way too many Hitler wanna be's that would would be emboldened to cause trouble if the US just minded her own business. Sorry but this disqualifies him from being a serious candidate.
Dont waste your time on this guy, he is not going to get elected.
HAHA... you are seriously that scared of the rest of the world??? Look, if the US wasn't out causing revolutions / chaos all around the world as the country has been doing, well, there wouldn't be the level of hatred of the US the world over.There are way too many Hitler wanna be's that would would be emboldened to cause trouble if the US just minded her own business. Sorry but this disqualifies him from being a serious candidate.
Well... verification of citizenship didn't stop Obama, what's different is that the majority of people no longer buy into the media smear campaigns anymore, so, just like how Rand Paul got elected in spite of being publicly accused of kidnapping, occult worship, faking his doctorate, Clinton and others campaigning against him, etc... he still managed a significant lead.
The media will keep pulling the trigger on these types of smears, but in the real world, these shots are little better then blanks as far as the the majority of people are concerned.
No, there's no way he will be allowed to win and take power... even though he's definitely got the potential to secure the winning number of votes.Dont waste your time on this guy, he is not going to get elected.
