    Ron Paul indicates he won't support the GOP nominee for Prez, because they love war too much.

    He also appears to flirt with the idea of running a third-party candidacy for prez, if the GOP elects an Iraq War loving candidate:

    I like the third-party idea, but we all know what happens to the Andersons and the Perots: a one-way ticket to obscurity.

    Actually, I wonder if the GOP has a lock on loving war for Israel. The Democrats aren't doing anything to STOP the bloody thing, and some, like the Jewish Chuck Schumer and the Jewish Joe Lieberman, are FOR it!

    So if he somehow pulls off the GOP nomination since that's where it looks to me like he's running, WHO does he support?:wtf:

    This is because he is not a real Republican! He sounds too much like one of those "Donkeys".

    That's the thing isn't it? How can he run as a Republican and say he won't support the GOP? Sure makes him look kinda sorta like a major hypocrite wouldn't you say?

    I don't think its hypocritical. Its principled. He won't support a candidate that loves the Iraq War, and in pro-war with respect to iran.

    Not if he thinks he's the only candidate representing "republican" values.

    Well if he thinks that, I think he's too much of an idiot to be President.

    You said it perfectly! He should have just ran as an independent and join the ranks of Ross Perot! Actually, I liked Ross Perot much more than Ron Paul. Ron Paul lives in a world of leperchans and rainbows,...he is not realistic on current events. He is a rock:eusa_wall: !

    Then he shouldn't run as a Republican expecting Republican support. I don't want a one-issue candidate, much less a one-issue President. And that is amplified in that I think Ron Paul's views on Iraq are quite wrong. So there we have it.

    He should have run as a Democrat.
