    Ron Paul is excellent on fiscal issues and if put in the WH he will do much to set us on a path to repair our economy and the economic future of this country. Most conservatives, even Paul haters agree to this.

    I admit that even though I agree with RP on some of his foreign policy ideas, mauch of it is off the deep end.

    But.....the potus is not Caesar, he cannot just do everything he wants to. Just as Obama couldn't close Gitmo and end all of the wars like he wanted to, Ron Paul won't be able to simply shut down all of our bases over seas, pull all our troops out of the middle east or sit down at the table and cut a deal with Iran. Ron Paul also, much to the disappointment of many of his supporters, won't be able to legalize marijuanna.

    He will have the support of his party on fiscal matters and shrinking the government so those things could get taken care of pretty quick and right now, these things should take a higher priority right now.

    Judging from the damage that obama did, there is both a lot to fear from a Ron Paul presidency. There is also nothing to fear from a Ron Paul presidency because he's not going to be president.

    I don't fear a Ron Paul term in office, either.

    If he actually tried to do all the stuff he talks about now, I doubt he'd survive his first term.

    The only presidency Paul might ever serve is with some company, organization, etc.

    You cannot judge Paul on Obama. Obama and the Democrat party had complete control of the government and there are still some things, especially military things, that Obama couldn'tdo. The point is that Ron Paul won't get to do his radical stuff either.

    You are probably correct that Paul won't be POTUS, but my point is that so many are so fearful of a Pual presidency and there really is no reason to be.
