Not going Vote for either.
I going to be laughing so hard if this guy is nominated and loses.
All the spamming for nothing.

I'd just be curious on what conspiracy the nutjobs come up with.

Well too bad. We had to listen to a sea of worship over St. Hope and Change four years ago.

And look at the mess he has made.

If you don't like it, don't read the posts.

Paul is too old, rigid and stubborn to be President.

Old, yes. But he has been saying the same things since the 1980's. It's not his fault that it took several wars and severe economic depression for people to listen to him.

And as for stubborn...wouldn't you be when what you have been consistently preaching and warning against for decades has all come to light.

We may not be there quite yet, but the numbers are shifting quickly upwards for Ron Paul.

If we look at all the polls:
RealClearPolitics - President Obama vs. Republican Candidates

In head to head against Obama polling:
Romney was a 2.0% underdog to Obama, now he's 1.5% behind.
Paul was 8.8% behind Obama, now he's down by 7.8%. (he jumped a full 1% in about a week.)
As for the rest:
Gingrich is -8.1%
Huntsman is -8.6%
Santorum is -10.0%
Perry is -10.6%
Bachmann is -13.4%

There's a very, very important thing to consider here. Because we are still in the process of the Republicans picking their candidate, it is expected that they'll poll lower than a standing president. This is virtually always the case because the Republican base is currently divided. Once you have your nominee chosen, you typically see their numbers jump by 5-10% vs the incumbent president. If we see Paul continue to climb in the head to head polls, what we may very well see: No matter which one wins the nomination, he will be coming into the general election with a lead over Obama.

Things are going in the right direction I think. If Ron Paul and Mitt Romney becomes a two horse race for the GOP nomination, Republican controlled media will have no choice in the matter: They'll have to actually discuss Ron Pauls ideas -- all of them. Even if he doesn't become President, that alone is a significant victory. Above all else, forcing America to actually have the conversation about the Fed and Paul's approach to strengthening the USA economically would be great!
