I doubt that Ron Paul even wants to be president, and he is likely using the election as a way to most effectively spread the message of liberty; while waking people up to the financial realities of the country. By participating in the debates, being interviewed, and making appearances, Ron Paul has so far prevented this election from becoming a painful rehash of politics as usual. He knows exactly what he is doing, and he will stay in the running as long as possible so that his message gets the maximum exposure.
Although I hope he will be elected, I think it might be better if he doesn't. That way when the election is over, he can keep giving em' hell from Congress; and the new breed of young, awakened, politically active libertarians will take the torch and ensure a revolution!

"Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. —“
It's our DUTY to ensure the government is changed at this point, because it's not doing us any good....
If Ron Paul is the only candidate capable of fixing it, then its also our DUTY to vote for him.
If he can't change things for the better, and no other candidates can, then it is our DUTY to find someone who can, and regardless of rules and regulations, ensure that person is the one in charge.

1. His stance on Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.
. He's a has been and an outsider.
3. His "past is troubling".

im afraid the time for politics is over in the US.. the time for revolution is at hand.

he complains bitterly about "politics" but he's playing in a political system.

If you're not going to do that, sit down and let Ron Paul run his campaign.
