People are in love with the idea of what Ron Paul says he represents. The basic problem is Ron Paul doesn’t represent conservatism. His foreign policy (such as it is) alone would get us all killed.

paul called Bradley Manning a HERO and a PATRIOT instead of the treasonous little $#$#^% he is. How do you suppose REAL military people feel about that one?

you may be right, but the Foreign Policy we have been living under right now gives NO COMFORT, nor did it under Bush - no candidate is offering any rational improvements for the Defense of our country, just platitudes. Our troops are dying in Afghanistan for no good reason. They were never allowed to fight to win and the ROE is absurd on any level. The rot permeates all of our Institutions, and even though I do agree with Paul on a lot of his opinions, he would still just be another captain on the new Titanic.

The most important, crucial, significant, lifechangning thing the next president will do, is to pick probably 3 new Supreme Court Justices.

Which presidential candidate would nominate 3 Justices who would most protect our Bill of Rights, Right to Bear Arms, Freedom from Unreasonable Search, States Rights, limitations upon the Federal government, etc ?

Also, Paul has never pretended to be a conservative - he’s a libertarian who believes that the POTUS shouldn’t have that much control over your every day life. It looks like we are having a war in our own hearts whether we want to be a free people or a controlled people who have been promised that famous security that Ben Franklin referred to way back when - in which case we will get neither freedom nor security if we sell out to the power-hungry criminals that have taken over our society.
