    Re: Will you vote for Paul or Obama?

    The known is better than the unknown...so Id go Obama. I was eyeballing Paul, but the more I saw, the more turned off I became. IF we were stablilized, had a good economy, weren't involved in these problems in the ME....then Paul could be an interesting experiment. But we aren't in that place here. We are in deep doo doo. I think Paul would give us more Poo.

    I'm voting for Ron Paul because Bernie Sanders and Dennis Kucinich won't challenge Obama from the left.

    I have a feeling you can't even come up with an example of his ideas that you disagree with. Certainly not one that would align with calling yourself "Very liberal".

    i wouldn't mind having someone like Paul as secretary of defense.

    he'd be excellent pushback against interventionism.

    I would welcome the GOP nominating Ron Paul and would love to see it happen.

    I also would like it to hit 85 degrees here in Michigan today.

    The second has a better chance of happening than the first. And the results would be much more pleasant.

    Every time I watch a debate or read articles about the current Republican candidates I think, "Here comes the circus."

    I see them all rolling up to the entrance of the debate hall in a vintage Volks Beetle, piling out one after the other in full clown dress and makeup.

    I started voting in the mid 60's. I voted Republican for most of my life...well, until my fellow Texan, GWB...and have since lost total respect for both the party and the ideological transitions that now drive so many members.

    I'll burn another vote in November and pull the tab for a candidate that won't have a snowball's chance in hell - the Libertarian Candidate.

    He's too much of an idealist. Cutting these departments sounds fine, but it's not like he'll have dictatorial power to just do what he wants. There's a little thing in his way called Congress. A President needs to be a pragmatist in order to get things done. This is where Obama's been ineffective, he's not a pragmatist and Paul is even less of a pragmatist.

    He won't. Under such a hypothetical scenario, I'd vote for the President. I could not support a candidate who would deliberately sacrifice the nation's interests, allies, trade agreements, central bank, etc. for purposes of pursuing an ideological crusade. Without doubt, fiscal consolidation will be required in the years ahead. That will require a more focused, efficient, and effective government. Some programs and services will likely need to be reduced/eliminated. That's still far from Paul's approach of wanting to radically scale back the government, as well as largely offload programs such as Medicaid on fiscally-challenged states. No modern economy can function without a central bank, yet Paul wants to eliminate the Fed. Finally, Paul failed the leadership test during the financial crisis. He opposed TARP, but provided no substantive alternatives to prevent a systemic meltdown of the nation's banking system. He had no solutions. For all his imperfections, the President would be a vastly better choice than Paul.

    Ron Paul does not believe a nuclear-armed Iran poses any national security threat to the U.S. He would end U.S. sanctions.
