Ron Paul: The Most Likely GOP Candidate to Beat Obama




Two recent Rasmussen polls show that Ron Paul is not only statistically tied with Obama (38% vs. 39%); he does better against the current president than any other declared or potential GOP candidate:

  1. Ron Paul 38%, Barack Obama 39% (1% difference)
  2. Rick Perry 40%, Barack Obama 43% (3% difference)
  3. Michele Bachmann 39%, Barack Obama 43% (4% difference)
  4. Mitt Romney 38%, Barack Obama 46% (8% difference)
  5. Sarah Palin 33%, Barack Obama 50% (17% difference)

What will Ron Paul’s general election campaign against Barack Obama look like? Here’s what Paul had to say about then-candidate Obama in June 2008:

  1. Obama wiped the mat with McCain and would do so with Ron Paul also. Paul has low charisma and some very odd views on science, foreign policy, entitlements, and Civil Rights. He's really just another plutocratic social conservative.

  2. I wish Ron Paul would debate with Obama, would make all you Paultards look silly. Obama would own this clown in every form possible.

  5. Reasons Ron Paul should run as an independent? There would be a lot of benefits according to this article. You may have already read it. Good or bad idea?

  6. Finally, a SANE candidate. Finally an intellectual. Contrast Ron Paul's quick and nimble mind with that of, say, a Bush W. and the difference is astounding.

  7. Ralph Nader asked the question after Obama was elected, will Obama be an Uncle Sam or will he be an Uncle Tom. Well, we can rightly say, da mastas be proud of 'im.

  8. The GOP is desperate to find a candidate to beat Ron Paul in the nomination process. Let's make sure the GOP hears us loud and clear! We need Ron Paul to win the Republican nomination.

  15. Obama fans are very stubborn. Please spread this video everywhere and show it to them. Obama fans genuinely think they can 'convert Obama', they don't get that he is financed by big business and not on their side. Put this on your Facebook wall.

  19. I'm not totally for ron paul, I still need to research him more and read his books, but it just seems totally suspicious that there isn't a lot of media coverage of Ron Paul.

  20. I always talk about the unity that Ron Paul offers. Everyone doesn't agree with everything he says, but everyone who knows about him agrees with something he says. Whether it's National defense: bring our troops home now, stop bombing everyone, and get our nose out of special interest, propaganda war, and have the strongest military in the world home and United protecting our borders. Iran getting a nuclear bomb is not the end of the world. Everyone has them. America and Isreal have very good anti missel equipment, so even if Iran(there are six or so countries that have them over there already, and we're not threatening them)would launch their nuke...it would get shot out of the air, and Isreal or America would drop 3 on them. America's been up against worse and she's made it through.
    Gay marriage and abortion: more elections are ran on these two issues, and frankly, it's none of the federal government's business. These issues should be handled by the church, or at the very least by the individual states, and the people that live there. Ron Paul has very strong beliefs, but does not believe the Federal Government has the right to impose those on any individual. It's called Freedom.
    Legalizing drugs: Although Ron Paul doesn't condone drug use, he once again believes th states should handle what drugs and what offenses should coincide with them. We have spent billions of dollars on the "drug war", and all it's done is increase the drugs we have here, and kill thousands of innocent bystanders...it works pretty much the same way as prohibition. The states should handle these issues based on their needs. This would take most of the money away from gang activity.

    Allowing states to do what they feel is necessary creates a free market society with natural competition. It allows people to see what works well and what doesn't, and also allows people to decide what kind of environment they want to live in. Don't like the way Wi or Ca does things, get enough people to agree things should be changed, or move where your opinions or beliefs are mirrored.

    These are just a few of the big issues that I feel people are having a hard time understanding, and some of the comments I've used that I feel have gotten through to some of them. Hope they help, and if anyone has some ideas for me, I'd love to hear them.
