Comments: Dare I say it? Ron Paul is an attractive candidate (not that way)

I don't thiink I could ever vote for Ron Paul, for exactly the opposite reasons you find him attractive, apparently.

Right or wrong when it began, this war is too important to the future of the US to allow it to be lost or given up. The arguments he makes are reasons not to start the war, but not reasons not to fight it or to win it.

If Paul is the Republican candidate, I will not be voting Republican in the election, nor will many Republicans like me.

If Ron Paul turns out to be a real contender in the next year or so I will vote for him...the first time I will ever have voted Republican and certainly the first I've wanted to do anything but abstain (and did so) over the last several elections. Ron Paul may be a Texas Congressman under the Republican banner but seems more Libertarian than anything. Unfortunately he's seldom given an opportunity in the public debates but, fortunately, more and more are not depending on the media...namely tv...for candidate information. I may not agree with him 100% but anyone so interested in us, as a country, having less govt. and minding our own business...then tending to it, deserves more than a passing thought.

Ron Paul has no hope of winning the nomination. However, he can be a lodestone in that he may drag the party away from it's current Big Government Conservatism (a term which makes zero sense) back to fiscal sanity and less government intrusion in our lives.

You posted about Ron Paul. Nice Google bait. Influx coming.

Duffy-- good point. That would not be a bad thing at all.

Duffy is right on. Dr. Paul is not an attractive candidate and will likely not be elected. His ideas are brilliant though. We the people need to push the parties towards a more serious tone on liberty and spending restraint.
