    Apparently there's a rumor that he may run again.

    Obviously the political landscape is a lot different than it was in 07 and 08 in his last campaign.

    I don't really care what the liberals think about it, I already know they'll want him to run because they think he'll split up the conservative vote.

    I'm interested in how many conservatives here would vote for him, considering that at this point there's really no good conservative option.

    I mean, please tell me you wouldn't vote for Sarah Palin over Ron Paul :lol:

    I've only seen two Republicans mentioned so far that I'd vote for in 2012; him and Gary Johnson but I was a supporter in 08 so I'm not adding to the numbers in any way.

    A vote for Rand is a vote for Ron, so judging by Rand's overwhelming victory in the primary, Ron's got a pretty good shot.

    Ron Paul may be the one true decent option we have.

    Ever since his whole "anti Civil Rights" interview, I really haven't heard much out of Rand Paul. I sure wish he would get McConnel's dick out of his mouth....

    Palin is supporting Pauls son in his KY senate race.
    Palin is involved in Paulist politics.

    Paul will never be elected president, his best shot would be as vice president.

    Ron Paul 2012?

    I hear Ralph Nader is going to run again also

    They can fight it out over the 1% of the vote

    Rand will likely be in the senate this fall.
    Ky did vote for Palin/McCain.
    And Palin and her baggers are supporting Rand.
