Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. Psalm 24

Ron Paul. I think the most damaging of his policies would never pass and he wouldn't be the type to find executive end arounds to do them, however his push for them would likely get "moderated" versions in place which I think would be a good thing. This is more than I can say for Obama.
"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.
Ron Paul, nuff said or maybe a bit more.
Oh no, lower taxes. Oh no, more liberty. Oh no, more prosperity. Oh no, stop the wars.
'The whole universe is going to die!'
Ron Paul, but then, I'd vote for one of my local ex-cons over Obama.
"God is the name by which I designate all things which cross my path violently and recklessly, all things which alter my plans and intentions, and change the course of my life, for better or for worse."

"We all of us know down here that politics is a tough game. And I don't think there's any point in being Irish if you don't know that the world is going to break your heart eventually."-Daniel Patrick Moynihan, December 5, 1963
Obama. Paul may appeal to progressives because of his foreign policy and relatively liberal views on social issues, but in my opinion it is foolish to pick a candidate based entirely on only one half of the story. These progressives are forgetting economics entirely.
Interesting poll results btw. I haven't voted yet.
