And the same cast of characters tried to convince us Paul was a legitimate candidate in the Republican primary. He is never going to be President.

Goldman Sachs and the Military Industrial Complex have already chosen 2 candidates for us to vote for. I would rather vote for someone who isn't a sell-out. It still shows his message is quite strong though. He would be the most viable 3rd party candidate since Perot.

Doing better than anyone since Perot just means doing better than Nader's 2.7 percent. I would give him that, but never ten percent.

Pew gives Paul 18%.
Poll: Obama 44, Romney 32, Paul 18
Not surprisingly, much of the potential support for Paul comes from independent voters. Roughly a quarter of independents who say they would back Obama or Romney in a two-person race say they would switch to Paul if he runs, leaving the independent vote divided almost evenly between Obama (31%), Romney (33%) and Paul (26%). Put in other terms, Obama loses nine percent and Romney 17 percent of independent voters to Ron Paul if he decides to run.

Not only does Romney lose more independent voters to Ron Paul than does Obama, but a Paul third-party candidacy also threatens to steal away some of the conservative Republican vote as well. Fully 96% of conservative Republicans say they would back Mitt Romney in a two-person race against Obama. But that support falls to 77% in a three-person race, with 19% saying they would switch to backing Ron Paul. There is no comparable loss of support for Obama among either liberal or moderate and conservative Democrats.

I would love to see it just to screw the GOP for what they did to him. It would make the debates far more interesting. At least someone will have the ability to call out the others without being a hypocrite about it. Plus we might even have a debate about real issues facing this country while exposing both parties for the frauds they are.

Ron Paul has great ideas - every now and then. In between it's very scarry in that head of his.

He will never be anything more than he is.

Thanks to God.

What scares me about Ron Paul is his uncanny resemblance to Marshall Applewhite.

His stance on the size of our military. Very very scary to say the least. This guy is still living in the 1950's.

Yes, I'm quite sure that God is hindering Ron Paul's chances of ever being President.

Some of the **** you people "thank God" for is utterly ridiculous.
