    Once a fringe candidate, Paul shaping 2012 race - Yahoo! News

    glad he is getting a little bit of attention...far less than he deserves though.

    He has some good ideas, but his foreign policy and ideas on the military are very idealistic as opposed to realistic. Also, I find it disturbing that he doesn't have the balls to run as a Libertarian instead of a Republican since that is obviously what he is.

    Because the Libertarian Party is a joke? Perhaps, but I still find it rather devious which, as you should know, is dishonest.

    Paul has the Ability to say some very smart things. I love his ideas about auditing the Fed, However His Isolationist Foreign Policy Ideas are not Practical in a Global Economy.

    The dude never fails to ruin a good speech with one or two wacky statements. Not a real contender for the WH, and everyone knows it.

    Where has realism gotten us so far? 5-9 wars with no end in site, around $4 trillion spent, thousands of American lives and over a hundred of thousand of civilian lives.

    Unless Paul wins the Presidency, don't expect the next President to end this mess during the the next term.
