    Personally, I don't think that the American People really want leadership but rather to be left the hell alone.

    This would assure victory for Barack Obama, no matter how much the conservatives hate him.

    I hope he runs as a Libertarian, then we will know exactly how many of them are active.

    They didn't do that, no T.V. spots or any mass marketing attempts.

    If they want people like myself to take the time and vote for them, they have to try harder, get a marketing planner for goodness sake.

    Grass roots crap isn't enough.
    Couldn't you just look at his position on every topic? Do you base your vote off media ads?

    I like Ron Paul and I know his positions.

    He has a lot of good positions but both him and the Libertarian Party don't do enough to make a "splash."

    If they aren't advertising to the people who vote the most, they aren't going to get anywhere.
    The '08 election was a great opportunity to do that but they didn't.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    That would discredit anything and everything he has worked for.

    I like Paul, but there's a whole lot of house-cleaning that needs to be done on all fronts in order to bring sanity to our nation.

    To old and quirky, can't win. That might not stop him running. Perhaps as a thrid party candidate.
