First, I apologize for my post last year that Paul doesn't do TV well. Second, I want to say that I sent in another donation to Paul's campaign. He is the only hope to change the deeply corrupt Washington cartel.

I don't agree with all of Paul's ideas, but I doubt the rest of the Washington political machine would let him implement them with any real permanence. That being said, I think the only real chance to force a fundamental sea change for the better in our government is to elect Paul. However, the Republican party, the corporate interests that benefit from our current system, and the media will never let that happen.

Pathetic! - It's really hard to tell who are the most delusional...the Obama people or the Paul people. But, Obama is in the 'house'...and Paul can only be a visitor.

Ron Paul is making inroads with Hollywood.

Andrew Breitbart, thanking Vaughn and Manilow for their independent thinking and coining the phrase “creeping emancipation,” which sounds like something you need to swat off of yourself but may actually mean that we will see increasingly delightful odd couples of conservative and libertarian thinkers hobnobbing with the newly openly conservative and libertarian Hollywood elite.

If those 'kooks' ...the Hollywood leftest, support a candidate (clinton, obama, global gore, etc.) that's not a solid, nor advantageous backing, that's proof that 'said' candidate is dangerous for America!

Why do conservatives insist on trying to link libertarians and conservatives?

What are Libertarians trying to conserve? We want to change everything.

what are you missing? The Paul supporters are trying to tell us paul is a conservative and you are saying Libertarians want to change everything, but many tell us Paul is a true Libertarian: which is it?

Paul calls himself, a Constitutional Conservative, as opposed to a NEOCON, or a RINO.

To win over the conservatives he is saying that. Paul is very close to a true libertarian but he is also personally conservative. It is a mistake to call libertarians politically conservative IMHO.

So my question to Ron Paul supporters: If government and the media are so corrupt, why would think for even a minute that Ron Paul would make it out of the Primaries?
