    A foreign policy of non-aggression is always viewed in the media or our culture as insane, sadly enough.

    I've said it before, Paul is too old to be president.

    That certainly means that his VP pick has greater significance, but that doesn't mean he shouldn't run at all. A candidate should be elected on the merit of his platform.

    Besides, it's unlikely that Paul would die in office, even if he were elected to two terms. The dude rides a bike ten miles a day (or so I've heard, I oughta fact-check that one).

    Having a president die in office is traumatic in many ways, and it isn't something we should have to deal with if we don't have to. I would say even more worrisome than him dying in office would be if he starts to go senile. Do you really want to risk someone with senility having his finger on the button? I'm not saying he WILL go senile, but he's getting up there and it's a legitimate risk.

    Well obviously it's not a scientific study. It's based on volunteers, not random sampling.

    Re: Ron Paul vs Barack Obama

    Although Paul can use his deficit hawkishness against Obama well, what will gut his support is what he wants to do or thinks at least rhetorically is fine. Suddenly the reasonable approach becomes a nightmare, as Paul is then set to explain to the American people that its course over the past several decades has been incorrect. Obama, by virtue of this will be able to look at the American people and proclaim to be defending their way of life from someone willing to take it all away. Americans have to a significant extent become used to that course, and it will be hard to get them to give that up, and Obama would use that to his every advantage.
