    Will he foot the bill for the White House from his personal funds?

    George Washington paid rent for the Samuel Osgood house.

    he'd do that just like he adhered to his own belief in term limits...

    not...

    and to his own distaste for earmarks...

    not...

    luckily it's not going to be an issue.

    True, the occumoochers would end up having to take personal responsibility for themselves. It'd really suck to be you.

    His promise to cut 1 Trillion in first year and have a balanced budget within 3 years is the only reasonable thing I've heard so far from the Republican candidates.
    This is the biggest issue the USA has.
    My vote would go for him.

    well, our massive increasing debt would slow down. and we'd probably let other countries fight wars for themselves. and there is a slight chance that we'd quit babysitting other countries (by supplying their military).

    but he won't be nominated by the republican party. reasons? see my first paragraph.

    Translation: Paul would roll back all the big government, socialist, new regulations, liberty infringements, unneeded agencies and damage done by the democrats under the Soetoro administration.

    He's got my vote.

    You call that reasonable? It would be as destructive as an A bomb.
