    Never been a Paulite sp? per se but been thru radical times revamping a political party, but faced with a Democrat Obama or a Republican Obama aka Romney inside the beltway asswipes, I'm seriously thinking third party now.

    It has to be a quick move. But I think it could be done.

    I'm voting Paul no matter what, it's the only way I could look myself in the mirror.

    Ron Paul is NUTS. He is a dangerous person to even contemplate being President. His entire plan is to cut us off from the rest of the world and bury our heads in the sand. Libertarians are bat shit crazy.

    It would be the death of the GOP as national party, be careful what you wish for.

    I'm thinking Ross Perot and Clinton, for some reason.

    I think it could be done. He'll draw from both but didn't he promise he wouldn't run third party?

    Could Rand be convinced?

    I'm sure you've got something other than your opinion to back that crap up with, right?

    Cut us off from the rest of the world? REEEE-LEEEE?

    You are either IGNORANT of his position on foreign "entanglements" which means you are proclaiming support for someone with out basic knowledge of the man's positions OR you know full well his position and are trying to deflect.

    Nope. What he said was "I have no plans for that at this time." What a lot of folks are unaware of is that Ron Paul is actually in 2nd place in the delegate count. John King over at CNN inadvertently let that slip out last week. Should the convention wind up 'brokered', Paul may have enough delegates to win it on the 2nd ballot.
