In light of this current economic crisis I'm sure Ron Paul is thinking..... "I told you so". And what about McCain and Obama? They look like Laurel & Hardy. How did these two jokers become the presidential candidates is beyond any comprehension.

I really wish Ron Paul would've stayed in the race. I hate that the media gave him almost no coverage. I would've voted for him.

The same way Bush got another 4. Slimey political tactics and stupid voters. Don't talk about the real issues and make your opponent look like a fool.

Business News | Financial News | Personal Finance | Stock Market Quotes | Commodities Market | Currency Market - FOXBusiness.com has a poll on their main page asking who will look the smartest when the dust settles. The choices are:



Ben Bernanke, the Federal Reserve chairman

Henry Paulson, the Secretary of the Treasury

Warren Buffett, head of Berkshire Hathaway

Ron Paul, Texas Congressman and presidential candidate

Bill Gross, PIMCO chief investment officer

Who do you think is winning with 80%?

Read this piece by Paul for a bit of education: Commentary: Bailouts will lead to rough economic ride - CNN.com

I do not agree with everything on his platform, but when it comes to matters such as these, the man is an absolute sage. What a shame he couldn't gain a greater national voice. He needs to be heard.

To use an old GOP line... Ron Paul must be right, because FOX HATES his guts.

The one thing he does say is the 2 candidates are almost identical and a third party candidate should get the vote. See for your self


YouTube - Ron Paul and Ralph Nader on CNN 9/10/08

he is the only Republican I know of that makes sense. I have to say I like Nader of the remaining candidates. Like Ron Paul he is honest and For the People.

It's not Fox.. it's the entire Republican party that couldn't stand him.. they saw him as a threat to McCain, Romney, Giuliani, Huckabee, Thompson, so they cast him off as a crazy fool. I agree with many of his stances, but he just had a very bad way of displaying them during public debates.
