    Did you take a look at the exit polls from Iowa and New Hampshire?

    gotta say I agree Henrin. Among college students, libertarianism is the fastest growing ideology - I don't really have any numbers to back it up, but it's just something I've been witnessing around my own campus.

    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.

    So, Ron Paulís foreign policy is dangerous compared to war, war and more war?
    Which agencies do you find too important to eliminate?

    Ron Paul, but then, I'd vote for one of my local ex-cons over Obama.

This would be exactly what people like Haymarket don't want as it would be a sign the future of democrats is not the youth vote.
    Toss away the youth vote. The Democrats had to learn that lesson the hard way in the early 70s. We need to learn it again. Useless demographic.

    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.

    I don't think I heard of a progressive that supports Paul not mention how economically he is wrong (they usually bring that up). But I guess if he held their views on that part, he wouldn't be a conservative . I think the conclusion is that Paul is someone they can stomach as nobody else is genuinely anti-war, anti-fed etc... and beats the current status quo. Some people can also be single issue voters or something to that exchange. Also our foreign policy is apart of our economics so not entirely but i understand what you mean.

    Interesting poll results btw. I haven't voted yet.
