    Ron Paul vs Barack Obama

    If the 2012 Election was today, and Ron Paul was the Republican candidate, would you vote him into office?

    Or........

    Would you re-elect Barack Obama?

    Who would you vote for and why?

    Who is Ron Pauls running partner?

    BARACK OBAMA. I detest Ron Paul's foreign policy more than I detest Obama's.

    Ron Paul, as if I even needed to say.

    I'd vote for Sarah Palin LOOOOOONG before I vote for Ron Paul.

    Re: Ron Paul vs Barack Obama

    Loaded question. I'd vote for a jar of mustard if it ran against Obama.

    I am not in love with Ron Paul. I don't like his foreign policy. His domestic policies are pretty good though, and when I determine who I vote for I usually go 70/30 domestic over foreign.

    I'd vote for Ron Paul, but he'd have to give up the "cantankerous old man" persona. Nobody wants to vote for a man who looks like the angry gray-haired next door neighbor who yelled at kids walking on his lawn.

    Obama in a heartbeat. I think Paul's domestic policy is completely unrealistic and his foreign policy is two steps short of suicide.

    Re: Ron Paul vs Barack Obama

    I think Ron Paul is a very likable guy. He is right about some things. However, being that I would just assume our National Parks were not sold off to developers to turn into a bunch of gated Vails, I don't think I could vote for him.

    I don't really support Ron Paul, in fact I despise his foreign policy. However I'd rather have him in office over Obama.

    Re: Ron Paul vs Barack Obama

    Of the vast array of policy agendas Paul would have, i only believe he could accomplish ending the war on drugs, and balance the budget.

    He cannot abolish the Fed.

    He cannot abolish the federal income tax.

    He cannot end SS or Medicaid/Medicare.

    For him to even win the Republican ticket, Dr. Paul would have to abandon the three pillars stated above.
