I agree with your patriotic views and hopes for our country but, I don't think that Ron Paul is the man to lead us. Ron Paul reminds me of Ralph Nader, good man, smart, loves his country But, not enough people will vote for him. The thing is, Ron Paul scares the hell out of people, he's too old, he'll cut the military, no Welfare, kill Medicare, (whatever) and don't forget about that legalizing drugs thing. The U.S. is split about 48%-48% (Dems vs Repubs) and based on Paul's previous showings there is not any way Paul will pull enough votes to come close to defeating Obama. Once again, good man, noble, patriot, smart, but, he just can't get the votes. At this point in time our ONLY hope at defeating Obama is Mitt Romney, like it or not. Our number one priority is to remove Obama from the White House.

The issue that I am concerned about is not whether he has a belief or not. Of course, he and everybody on this planet has the right to believe in anything they want to. It is the individuals ability to rationalize which is reflected by such beliefs and that is my main concern with Ron Paul. As you mentioned though: If he can keep it out of the office and switch mind sets between rational and irrational when at work and at home respectively, then I have no real problems with him. His policies seem solid and ideal for what the world needs right now.
Romney believes that God, in his physical form, came down from planet Kolob and had sex with Mary to create Jesus! Now, that's a belief you can not believe in if you even pretend to be a Christian!
Secondly, Reagan, rarely went to church but many think he was a big bible thumper.......
If you want a "faith based" leader join the Catholic Church! This is a problem with Americans who think that an unofficial religious litmus test gets good leaders ... wrong again...

So, I'm not American, but I have a lot of interest in American politics...
Say RP does not win the GOP nomination and is out of the race for good... I heard that Roseanne Barr is running for pres, and honestly, I think she would be a great alternative.
Now about RP, I have had arguments with Americans who support Obama, and then I tell them "so, you're a fascist?" then they get all offended by that (as if I just slandered them or something), then I have to explain to them that if they support Obama or Romney, they are technically a fascist, because only Ron Paul is not bought by the bankers and corporations. If Obama was not a fascist, why does Monsanto run the FDA? Why does the CIA run the FBI? Why does Goldman Sachs run the Treasury Department?
So if people really DO support Obama or Romney, they should embrace being called fascists, otherwise they just look foolish. I suggest RP supporters to use this strategy, because you will see just how effectively you will get people to look at their own positions, and possibly changing them. People should be making signs and banners and stuff, let the brainwashed public know that they are supporting a Nazi scheme and that if they continue to do so, they should be ashamed of themselves for betraying the very principles that made America so great for so long!
