I really want our country to be better for the next gen, and I do not feel like we are doing a good job right now.

    That said I don't believe Ron Paul has a chance to win the nomination.
    I feel Ron Paul has a fighting chance and said after the Arizona debate that he is second in delegates, even though there is no accurate count. Also the mainstream media tries to ignore Paul. If he wins a poll they take the poll down. If he finishes second they don't mention him. Just because the media doesn't recognize him doesn't mean the people aren't.

    He does have a chance, but not much of one i am afraid. He still has a tough road ahead of him. The things you mention above is exactly why I feel the way I do. I also feel he would have an absolute miserable time trying to get anything passed that he would like. If this ends up being the case he will be ineffective as a leader and we will still get nowhere. It's going to take lots of support from the people of this country and backing of his peers. I am not convinced he will get either. Hope I am wrong.

    I don't think you're wrong. All his opponents will have to do is to run a scare campaign to convince the voters that terrorists will invade their living rooms if we cut back military presence like he wants to do, and that the druggies will take over the world if we end the war on drugs. That, and painting him as a "liberal" because of his stance on the authoritarian issues of abortion and gay marriage, and he'll never make it.

    It makes me sad to think that this is how politics work. The guy who is the most honest and most consistent gets screwed. Everyone of the candidates have lied or appeased the people of the state they were in except Ron Paul.

I went back 3 pages and didn't see any poll like this. Who do you support out of the remaining GOP candidates and Obama?
    Paul is a bit nutty on some issues and has no chance of winning. While I'd vote for a dead hamster over the polished turd in the white house now, I support Romney since I believe he has the best chance of flushing the turds, tards and class warriors out of the oval office

    Yes, he does, but how does he feel about the Obama administration?

    Re: New Here

    You know, the new guy actually posted a thread that stayed on subject for two pages and showed us something that we hear everyone saying but never see proof of. Paul doing well against Obama. It is very interesting that Paul is as popular as he is but does as poorly as he does in the primaries. Mind blowing.
    “Mr. Speaker, I once again find myself compelled to vote against the annual budget resolution for a very simple reason: it makes government bigger.” ― Ron Paul
