    Is he planning to run as a independant?

    If not, what he is doing with all that money he raised.. I never see him anywhere but the debates..

    Last I head him comment on it, he wouldn't give a definitive answer but said the chances he would run as an independent were "slim."

    Not just yours. I think he might run as an Independent as well, although in statements I heard he said "that is not in the campaign strategy whatsoever, and I don't plan to do it." There's still a chance he will get the nomination, I understand he plans to crank up his campaign in critical times... in order to save money, instead of spending himself to death like the SIX OTHER REPUBLICANS that already dropped out.

    Go Ron Paul, do it for America.

    I'd think he'd run a third-party campaign. That's what stockpiling the money for since he, at least, if not his zealots, understands that he isn't ever going to get the nomination. (can't do that with 4 delegates, can he? though of course he'll get a few more).

    He'd be the worst possible thing to happen to this country, not just because of himself, but because of the people who support him and who would be emboldened.

    your taken a donation from one white supremacist and ignoring the legions of good and decent Americans that are the driving force of the Ron Paul campaign

    Taozu? You mean Taoman? Sorry, he isn't really up to the task. I am entitled to my opinion, you know. Just because you hold yours' neither makes it mainstream or acceptable to others.

    As for libertarian. I hold many libertarian views. I just have issues with the concept that government isn't supposed to do anything.

    And, luckily, most people aren't quite willing to break everything apart and hope for the best.

    Wrong. Mainstream is not a synonym for acceptable. Acceptable means believable... so mainstream is disqualified.


    Ron Paul wants the government to defend our borders, ensure the welfare of its CITIZENS, and protect a free market economy. Inform yourself, please. I mean enough with the blatant disregard for the truth. In no way does he advocate "no government." He advocates "limited and effective government."

    Sounds like what the colonists did when Britain tried to take away the continental currency.
