    Ron Paul reminds me of Robert Kennedy. You just know they’re going to get a patsy to shoot him so yes, please protect him. He has the chance of being the greatest president since JFK.

    Wow! Nice video of the crowd waiting for him in California. He’s bigger than Bobby Kennedy was. Ron Paul is a very serious contender for the nomination.
