I consider Paul a libertarian over a republican. He has to run republican because it's the only affordable way to get votes. He would have to be a billionaire to run independent. Pretty much have to run on a GOP or Dem ticket.
I also don't think they could force Ron's hand. What are they gonna blackmail him with? The media can't even dig any dirt up on him.
To the creator of this thread. Don't base your vote on anyone here. Research it yourself.
If you insist though I will just say, Paul is your only chance to vote for something new. A vote for anyone else is more of the same.

Representative Paul will simply not be as effective as president as he needs to be to fix the problems. This would be like putting a $10,000 engine with high end computer control into a Ford Pinto with shot brakes and worn out suspension. Total waste of effort and inefficient use of resources.
If anything, I wish Paul would join his son in the US Senate where his voice would have more weight.
As for the fellow who posted "shame for not voting"... until the entire power complex in D.C. is changed, voting is futile. I simply will NOT vote for someone who I know will not do the job correctly. Lesser of two evils is still evil (to abuse an analogy).edit on 12-11-2011 by rogerstigers because: (no reason given)
