again, that it the question and the chances are pretty slim Paul will run on a third party. I think it is pretty sad he will not win his own state and maybe come in third.

But in reality, Dr Paul has never been elected to a statewide office, only representing one sole district. I'm sure that most Texans had probably never heard of him until he ran for the Presidential nom.

If forced by gun to vote for one of the 2, it would be Santorum.... if I had to vote without force behind it or if there were a 3rd choice on this poll, Ron Paul without a doubt

But why do people have to be limited? That is the entire problem, people making their own rules for others to follow. I would vote for Ron Paul and would settle for Gary Johnson.

"Never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense". Big government candidates don't make good sense. For the most part, their policies do not work in the long run.

You are probably correct. Seems strange in a sad way that the most conservative man in Congress isn't well known.

The way that I first heard about him was when I was going to get my coffee early one morning in Corpus Christi. There were about 2 dozen or so supporters at a busy intersection with signs that said "Ron Paul Revolution" in 2008. After that, I noticed his name more often in a small section of the San Antonio paper that documents how our "local" representatives voted along with about 4 others. Texas is a large state. We tend to only read about our local US reps.

The only Republican I could have voted for was Jon Huntsman. There was a true moderate who was willing to work across the aisle and respected by people in both parties. It was one person who Republicans wanted no part of. Truth is, I could have easily voted for Huntsman over Obama if he was the nominee and put on a good debate.

Just shows you how extreme modern day American politics has become.
B.S. You would have voted for Oblama no matter who was running against him. That's how it always is with you lockstep liberals.

News: We conservatives don't care who you think we should nominate to be President. Worry about your own party. You've got a big problem to deal with yourself--Oblama's record of failure.

you are completely right. We lived in Tx for 13 years and had no idea who the guy was. He never did much of anything, is from a very small district and this is why he probably will not even come in second at the primaries. I have lived a lot of places and we always at least had heard about our state reps, whether we knew much about them of not. We still have friends and a few relatives in Texas, they do know who he is now and are not supporting him at all......
