It doesn't matter what he introduces if he doesn't have the leadership skills to get people to support his ideas.
His poor record in Congress shows his complete lack of leadership skills and being able to convince people that his ideas are a good thing. You can't say he isn't trying to get bills passed...he has introduced enough of them...so what is the reason if not lack of leadership skills that they aren't getting passed?
Poor leadership isn't really a quality one looks for in a potential President.
If you think Ron Paul has good leadership skills...please prove it...show me anywhere he has led and been successful.

Ron Paul is there to rock the boat, and give rights and freedom to the American people,
Even if in his 4 years he would just bring the troops home, end the war on drugs and release the non-violent drug offender, cut Homeland Security department, and block any bailout of the banks and kick Bernanke out, that would still be a thousand times better than Obama or Bush.

But, we're missing another critical point: has anyone from the U.S House ever been elected President?

Oh, and you can get a whole lot more done with congress when you are the president.

And so do I. I would love for Ron Paul to be successful with SOME of his agenda, but much of it is far too extreme for me.

You know what the funniest part about this thread by Outkast Searcher is? ... He's literally telling us not to vote based on his 'usefulness' in the house (or lack thereof as he claims)...
