I tell you what. You quit bringing up Ron Paul's age and I'll quit bringing up how ignorant, inexperienced, stupid and immature your guy is. Deal?

You voted Democrat last election and have vowed to do so again this time. Why do you care?
You keep saying your guy is going to run away with it anyway, why the fear of a wise man with age to prove it?

That's just it. Ron Paul is about leading the USA, not the world.

And By God, we need a leader here.

Yeah...... well pal, you're delusional if you don't realize the POTUSA job entails FAR MORE than the USA. Always has....everyone knows that...'er, well most everyone.

Are you mixed up? I don't have ''a guy.'' I have never voted democrat. The only person I've discussed endorsing for President on this forum is Sarah Palin. - I'm sure you have mistaken me for someone else. I'll accept you jumping to a wrong conclusion and apology. - Hope you get it all corrected.

Oh, and I'm not the only one bringing up Ron Paul's age. Millions are. >> That part you did get correctly.

It doesn't bother me that Paul's age is higher than Palins IQ.

Sorry, I could not pass that up.

Ron Paul looks and sounds like an old man - which is exactly what he is.
Have you heard any of his speeches from the 80's? I don't think his voice has changed since then.

Regarding looks, the only thing that makes Paul look older than Perry or Romney is hair color. I just saw close-ups of Perry and Romney in a Politico article I was reading and neither Perry or Romney look very young either. In fact if they had white hair they'd look older than Ron Paul. Certainly Ron Paul is more FIT then they are. I think Romney and Perry both have maybe more wrinkles than Ron Paul does.

Whoa emily! This post is an irrational 'stretch.' Paul IS....and DOES look much older than Perry and Romney.

You've been doing a fine promotion job for Mr. Paul. Don't blow it all now....and lose 'your' credibilty.

Since when is it ok to judge someone based on age? Ron Paul is better qualified for the job than anyone who's held the office in the last 50 years, he's light years ahead of Obama who might be younger but is certainly nowhere near as intelligent as Ron Paul.

Ron Paul is a truly exceptional man, especially in Washington, and he has my vote if he's the candidate. He will surround himself with the best advisors available and set the Executive branch on the right track for the first time in generations.
