    I've come to understand he is merely running an educational campaign to try to pull people back to a form of government that is sustainable and decent. I wish a better speaker could lead the charge, but it is what it is.

Trump actually does make a more viable candidate for President then Ron Paul or his son.

    Categorically, universally, only a complete moron would support Ron Paul.
    You are only saying that because you don't want small government. You want large government in social policy and ... maybe empire.

    Of course thats what hes doing. No sane person who actually wanted to win the presidency would expound his views. Thats something to say after you win.

    If there's one positive thing which can be said about Ron Paul, other than his ability to raise funds, it's that the man is near perfectly consistent. He doesn't just say some random dangerously stupid thing and then walk away from it. When he says something retarded, which is quite often, he stands by it forever. Integrity is one of his virtues.

    However, this means you can't count on him to bend to your 'circumstances' or other specific criteria.

    See? I'm right, again. Ron Paul is not trying to win the Presidency, as I said. He is only making a mockery of the election process.

    No hes not. He actually believes everything he says but he would have to be retarded to believe that he could win RIGHT NOW with those views. He a champion of real American conservationism. He could be a snake in the grass, say one thing, get elected and then completely toss it out the window and do what he really wants... Like every president for nearly the last 100 years.

    For me it's between him or Mitch Daniels

    Our full involvement in the Middle East for the past few decades has had little to do with Communism. Bin Laden already said why the United States was attacked. As long as we remain involved in the Middle East, recruitment by terrorist organizations will be on the rise. They want us out of their affairs. I think we should listen.

    How exactly is running for the Republican Presidential ticket a mockery of the election process?

    Re: Ron Paul for president

    In my opinion, Ron Paul is the last person we need as president. My own political beliefs aside, I feel that the nation is in no state for what I'd consider a "radical" individual. With the Afghanistan war, the economic crisis, and the various other foreign happenings in the world right now (ex. Libya, Egypt, Yemen, etc.), we need someone who is less focused on the big ideas, and more interested in fixing the problems of our time.

    I'm all for big ideas, and for big campaigns to essentially just make the world a better place. However, these things tend to fail, and right now I don't think anyone in the United States is interested in committing to campaigns like that when we have so many other problems occurring.

    Ron Paul, although I personally don't agree with his ideas nor his policies, is someone who could be better suited to be president during peace time, when there is more room for exploration and testing things out. To reiterate what I've said, there is just no room for a radical president, whether conservative or liberal, right now.

    "White nationalist" is a code word that racists use to seem legitimate. stormfront (NEVER capitalized... they deserve zero respect) is certainly a white supremicist site. It's claims to be white nationalist is a fallacy. Just a bunch of racists trying to con folks that they are not... and those folks are too stupid to realize that we all know it.

    Paul will never talk a racist as his VP, so Duke would never be on his ticket.

    As far as Israel being behind 9/11, that's nothing but insane conspiracy theory crap spewed and repeated by racists and anti-semites. You really need to stop listening to the moronic garbage that they spew.
