    Yep, and so should Palin. It will help Obama win again.

    I don't want Paul to run for the same reason Luissa does want him to.

    Ron had less effect on the '08 election than did Perot in '92 or Nader in '00.

    Basically, he didn't raise the bar or change/focus the discussion or siphon votes.

    So what the hell makes anyone think that he'll do something groundbreaking a second time around, when historically outlier candidates do progressively worse each time they run? It's nothing but an ego trip at this point, same as it was for Nader. He's gotten used to having his name in the national news and op/ed pieces, and wants to keep it there.

    he is still always on fox, cnn, abc, etc doing interviews and such on economic and domestic policy. I voted for him and got probably at least 50-100 people at my school & family to vote for him last time, but I really don't think he should, instead he should take an economic advisory role which is his strong point. if you had him and peter schiff in charge of ecnonomic policy of the country we would be in a million times better shape.

    Just one more guy I will have to beat out at the polls when I announce that I'm running for President. Ya'll save your excess money for my political fund when I begin to pass the hat around when the weather gets a little bit warmer. Nobody comes down to the corner to listen to my speeches because right now it's too cold outside. They will quit walking by and laughing when the weather gets warmer and they hang around a few minutes to hear what I have to say. Look for a bumper sticker at your local 7-11 beside that little container that will say "Quarters for BBD. Our next President." Please, don't take one of the bumper stickers unless you put a quarter in the can. Those things cost 80 cents each to print up! Get me to DC and I'll get the economy rolling again and a job for everybody who really wants one.

    The shit you post around here makes me sick to my stomach to associate myself with you, as a fellow Paul supporter.

    You're the kind of moron that gives the Paul movement a bad name.

    You're an uninformed, mindless idiot. You've made several posts that have proven this.

    You're a liability to the movement.
