    I like Ron Paul. I don't agree with him but I understand his philosophy. I just feel there are too many of us now to make the libertarian outlook work. It is a kind of Utopia and trying to achieve any utopia never ends well.

      If he could manage to do even half a fraction,it would still be tons better than what the current Prez has (or rather, HASN'T) accomplished.

    People say Ron Paul is "nutty" because they can't attack him on any other issue. People don't understand real freedom anymore - they think we are free - but we really aren't - we are controlled by a corrupt government and bloated, selfish big businesses. People say they're against big government - but they really aren't - it's all they know. Ron Paul is a man of intergrity who practices what he preaches and has done so for the last 25 years. If you want more of the same old B. S. in politics - vote for any of the other candidates. If you want America to get back to what the coutry is supposed to be - vote Ron Paul in 2012. It's that simple....

        Hello Proud! It's me! John Cardinal Ratzinger is already the Pope! He doesn't need anymore on his plate. As for the Jester, well it is, what it is! I cannot wait for this dude to start talking about aliens and Dick Cheney! I'm sure he knows where the bodies are stored! He couldn't have been involved because he's a Libertarian, or could he? Hmmmm...

      Yes I do not use the term 'NUT' without thinking about it! I supported that NUT Ross Perot, until he started talking about alien abductions, and hitmen searching for his daughter at her wedding! How does a hitman search for someone, at their wedding? Yessir, that is a pie in the sky crazy dude, and I cant wait for about four or five of these debates...He's going to be talkin' about aliens too! Thanx.

    You realize that Ron Paul is a Representative in the US House (TX - 14th District), and NOT a Senator, right?

    Well I see the great state of California, has picked another would be loser! We will have to wait, until the election to actually confirm that he is a loser! Until that time, I see no reason whatsoever to let these losers here, off the hook. Rufus, and Paul Henry. Just 'Tards with a capital 'T'!

      Ron needs to be retired to the nursing home. The old fool really can't just shut up. We know what those folks in California snort through those straws.
