    they both have a very strong appeal to the younger voters

    as is typically true of the democrats, the republican party leaders will not allow the best candidate to run
    Only 2400 voted out of 10,000 hardly a mandate.......

    3 a : tending or disposed to maintain existing views, conditions, or institutions : traditional b : marked by moderation or caution <a conservative estimate> c : marked by or relating to traditional norms of taste, elegance, style, or manners
    4 : of, relating to, or practicing Conservative Judaism

    — con·ser·va·tive·ly adverb

    Thanks for the explanation. Explains a lot. My suggestion though would be to change hte lean if you don't want to keep answering such questions (not saying its right, just saying its likely the easiest way to save you trouble). "conservationist" isn't exactly a political lean, in the way the "lean" is generally looked at here, so you're likely to have many people confused. Indeed, even I noted your "little c" but wasn't positive what you meant by it, especially in reference to a political lean. Just a thought

    Thanks! I don't find any of the choices for political lean describe my political position as well as first meaning of conservative. If humanist were offered, that would be a better choice but I could only choose from what's provided.

    Is there any chance that Humanist could be added to the list of choices?

    He's no neo-con, that's for sure. He's not like one of your ilk, the big government, big deficit, big war, big brother type folk. He's definitely in the small, controlled, and constrained government camp. Traditional conservatism, or what conservatism used to be. Many people who call themselves "conservatives" now are in no way shape or form actually conservatives. They're actually for large, intrusive, expensive government. Mostly some form of statist. Ron Paul is not that, he is more of what you would probably call classical conservative.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

No thats not right, liberals think Paul is a racist. Plus with all the anti-liberals there, they cant possibly keep a cool head. Maybe just maybe Paul's message of freedom is actually finally being embraced or maybe Im drunk thats a possibility.

    I like Ron Paul.

    Some of his policy ideas are not a practical as other, but good for him!

    BTW -- if I like Ron Paul, what does that make me?

This is not an indictment on his views, though its part, nor the Republicans, but more one of the general political process and the American voting public at large.
    Barry Goldwater never had a real chance, but guess what? He brought us Ronald Reagan. I am looking forward to seeing who Ron Paul is going to bring us.

    It makes you pretty alright, as far as I'm concerned.

    FWIW, Ron Paul is probably the last Republican I'll ever vote for if they continue down this road. Oh well ...

    There's a large difference in believing that Ron Paul's general ideals could/should be the inspiration for a potential legitimate Presidential nominee and believing that Ron Paul himself can currently be a legitimate Presidential nominee.

    I think the majority of his general philosophy, if tempered a bit by some realistic pragmatism, could do very well on a national stage.

    I don't think Ron Paul can be the one to do it though.

    He will be 77 for the 2012 election. That right there will sink any chance he might have had, unfortunately.
