I like Ron Paul's stance. However, he does look a LOT like Magneto from the X-Men movies AND Gandalf from the Lord of the Rings movies. Hmmmmm....
On one hand, he looks like someone we can trust. On the other, he's a megalomaniacal madman bent on conquest. Shucks, I just don't know. It is
funny how much he resembles that actor.
That aside, perhaps there is something to how one looks, especially politicians. Think about it. Charisma translates into positive (or negative)
feelings which translate into CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS. Sure, that's *obvious,* but it really has a lot more impact than most people think. While
there are many people (who end up getting a lot of power) who don't have much charisma, those folks get *appointed* to a position of authority when
their highly charismatic friends land the job, win the popular election.
Ron Paul looks both like Magneto and Gandalf. One is "evil" and one is good. I put quotes around "evil" because I'm sure some will identify with
Magneto and see things from his side of the fence. Either way, Magneto can perform "magic" as well as Gandalf. Ron Paul looks like a guy who might
have been a wizard or seer from the middle ages. Just having that "wizened" look about him will help him a great deal. He looks like an intelligent
man, and (of course) speaks like one.
I won't say whether or not I'd vote for him, but I would sure have to consider it.
