    Ron Paul. The One.

    The only libertarian politician who has been elected to U.S. congress. That's a fact.

    He's only pretending to be a republican. He ran as a Libertarian in 1988.

    ...and therefore he'll be remembered thousands of years from now. Just like Socrates.

    Yes. What other legacy from American politics do you think will be remembered several thousand years from now, after all the lies about Lincoln and FDR fail to withstand the test of history? Thomas Jefferson and Ron Paul. The Rise and Fall of the American Republic.

    The only way Ronnie's being remembered is if we put a Brüno DVD in a time capsule.

    Out of these options, Mitt Romney is the easy winner, but don't count out others like Tim Pawlenty in Minnesota. Though he hasn't yet said he will run, we know he will.

    He's providing value in exchange for the donations people like me send him. Whether working within the system is more cost-effective than armed resistance - that's a more complicated question.

    The government steals. Ron Paul's intentions are to diminish it.

    And "pulling oneself up by one's bootstraps" is an analogy for socialism: trying to get a greater outputs from a system (government) than its inputs. Capitalism is analogous to pushing away from something, thereby creating value.

    Re: Best Early pick for Republicans in 2012

    For what it is worth: I did not put Ron Paul(or Tim Pawlenty) on the list because there is a max of 10 poll options, and in Paul's case, he is really a Libertarian, not really a republican.


    Or to be more honest, I forgot both, but would have ran into the problem of 10 poll options anyway.

    I cannot believe I forgot my favorite nut Alan Keyes! I say "favorite nut" in a very complimentary way too...if he was speaking in this area, I would try and attend. He is a great speaker, and it really is too bad he is such a loony. Oh well, he will never get the nomination anyway(kinda like Ron Paul).
