People are always talking about Ron Paul because he is the light in a sea of corruption and people are very passionate about him!
I suggest you get use to it, ATS is only going to see an increase in Ron Paul threads until the election actually happens.

Seriously, I am sick of all these Ron Paul posts. You people are getting arrogant and brainwashed. More than the stupid Obama people and OWS combined. Come on, I don't want ATS to be littered with Ron Paul propaganda. Every time I go on there are at least ten NEW posts about Ron Paul in the recent posts sections. It's funny but I don't see love for any of the other candidates, not even a single Good Obama thread! So can you please put all of the Ron Paul stuff under one thread in the 2012 elections?? Like maybe this one??
So we can get through the Ron Paul clutter and make room for other stuff. Ron Paul? He's almost like a distraction.edit on 30-12-2011 by jjf3rd77 because: (no reason given)

Yeah, I know you don't like Paul and it wasn't a friendly comment towards us, but that was funny. You get a star.
As to the OP's rant, I feel your pain, as I don't feel a decent chunk of what gets posted really needs a standalone thread, but to answer your question - no other candidates really get many people excited. And I've seen a couple of decent Obama threads floating around.
That said, this is an election cycle, Paul's popular, and he is making some valid news that bears reporting on. Come on, would you seriously advocate ANY other subject being condensed on to a single thread? Do NONE of the other VERY common thread subjects that compare fairly to the Paul threads draw your same ire for some reason?
I know it's just a rant, but such requests seem very suggestive of "thought-crime" and smacks way too much of biased censorship.
But really 2012 election thread should be about the 2012 elections not ron paul. I've only seen a few candidates even mentioned. No Mitt Romney, No Jon Huntsman, No Rick Perry.
"Crazy" Bauchman was talked about for a time when she won Iowa Straw Poll. Then however, the Ron Paul people thought it was a conspiracy that she won cause Paul came in second and they thought that was impossible.
Newt's relationship with the banks has also been mentioned.
Ron Paul has his faults too and people just blew those away due to their extreme devotion to the guy.
I think Obama train left and those people jumped onto the Ron Paul bandwagon. They almost speak the same exact message, except Obama never really mentioned the constitution. GO Back and look at Obama's messages and Promises to the people. Then go and look at Ron Paul's messages. Besides for a few differences, they are mostly alike, it's scary.
