    It drove up the price of tin foil, for the making of all the hats needed by the vast numbers of the uber-whacko's that follow him like Jesus

    It was to address his stance on the issues, and a launching pad for his new organization, the Campaign for Liberty. It was also for he and his supporters to have a little fun, I wish I had been there. We need more politicians like Ron Paul in America.

    Yes, it's uber-whacko to think that limited government, non-interventionism, and sound money are better alternatives to our current system... :rolleyes:

    Still, he would have been welcome at the GOP convention, had he not distanced himself from the party first.

    He was invited to the Republican convention, but there were too many ridiculous restrictions. He did nothing to distance himself from the party, if anything the party tried to distance itself from him. You'd be surprised at some of the horror stories delegates for Ron Paul had to face at some of these caucuses, especially in Nevada where Ron Paul came in second in the primaries ahead of John McCain. But some Republicans have said it's not right that Dr. Paul hasn't endorsed McCain. But why should Ron Paul endorse somebody that he doesn't agree with on too many important issues?

    The bold part is him distancing himself. There are always restrictions at a Convention. The party controls the message. He chose not to tow the party line. I'm all for that, but sometimes you have to. That's why you joined the party in the first place. If Paul can't live with that, then he should find a new party.
