    I think we can only pray he gets in and stays alive. Not a gold standard, but gold and SILVER legal tender with the market deciding their value. He can be the Wizard of what Was.

    As a registered Democrat, I’ve always found Dr. Paul’s brand of conservatism fascinating in comparison to his FoxNews cohorts (Rove, Gingrich, Beck, etc.). Yes, I did vote for Obama, but it was not an easy decision if you consider the competition.

    Please keep in mind, I am a secular American who believes fully in every individual’s rights to worship and expression. I believe in the free market without reservation. But the idea of any candidate backed by an army of Bible Belters intent on the “re-Christianization” of America and sitting the Oval Office scares me to death. So for this reason, I saw no alternative but to shy away from Senator McCain (a fine patriot and law maker) and Governor Palin (a puppet of the GOP and a Grade A whack-a-mole), and support then-Senator Obama and his dogs, Beau and Biden.

    ***For those Christians reading this forum, crying atheistic intolerance, I present you the following scenario: President “Blank” is a devout Muslim/Buddhist/Sikh/Pastafarian/Mormon who wishes to pass laws and promote academic debate from the perspective of his/her religious scriptures written “Blank” millennia (I guess the Mormons are technically excluded from this group) ago. These scriptures posit the existence of an omniscient entity that can neither be proven, nor disproven, but contain a worldview antithetical to observed phenomena. Do you feel comfortable?

    I’ve spent the last hour reading up on Dr. Paul and his views (self-admittedly no expert). Although I’ve come to consider his view of social policy as disastrous (somewhere between Katrina and Fukushima), Dr. Paul’s voting record speaks to a man of great conviction of principle and dare I say, albeit cliche, “common sense”. Although his views are represented within the Republican Party, somewhat, Dr. Paul has the distinction of separating the political necessity of catering to a large base with the task at hand. That said, I vehemently support Dr. Paul’s approach to sustainable fiscal policy, monetary policy, handling the national debt (properly), and dismantling America’s neo-colonialist foreign policy (although as far as reproductive rights go, I don’t think anyone has the right to claim, scientifically at least, where and when life begins. If this were the case, wouldn’t the destruction of our ecosystem by means of pollution put an end to many other forms of potential life?).

    If Dr. Paul were to make a presidential run, I would most certainly vote for him (provided Sean Hannity isn’t up for VP). In this case, I wouldn’t be voting for a Christian politician, but a politician who happens to be Christian (and this I can live with). Unfortunately for Dr. Paul (and I think the entire nation), left-leaning individuals such as myself have never considered voting for a conservative candidate simply because of the GOP’s religious overtones to satisfy its base.

    Thank you for reading, and I bid you adieu with an enthusiastic,
    Ron Paul, 2012!

    Undecided??? WTF.. America NEEDS him to run.. no exceptions.. Regardless if he has a chance of winning or not, at least if he runs there’ll be more exposure of the REAL issues affecting our country.
