Yes, Ron Paul is a terrific, principled statesman, who seems to correctly understand the import and importance of the Constitution. Yes, it would be great if the country could get behind him.
That is, if the man had any chance of winning. There's no more grassroots; there's no more ground-swell. It's over. For all we know, RuPaul could garner as many votes if ran for President. Hell, he would probably do some good if he ran, because at least he would take votes away from Obama.
Get this straight, a vote for Ron Paul, or those he endorsed, is a vote for Obama. Voting for Mr. Paul isn't going to teach McCain a lesson. It will elect Obama. And, Obama won't give a rat's ass that Paul supporters spoke with their vote. Ron Paul is Ross Perot, a.k.a. the vote stealer.
Only those who live in a hopelessly blue state can vote for Paulie, or those he endorsed, with a clear conscience. Anyone else who votes for him runs the risk of formal cooperation with idiocy. Yes, I mean to be offensive. For &@#! sake, Ron Paul is not a viable candidate.
