The truth is he has been running for president since 1988 and has never come close and is more of a libertarian than a conservative.  I don't need to be set free I already have and that is why I am not a RP groupie.  You can only be a leader if you convince enough folks to follow you and he has failed over and over at that.  He will never be president period.
Last word for me on this absurdity.

As long as he will never again be a third party candidate, I'm happy. Maybe we can get Ralph Nader to make another run at the Green Party to offset the stay at home conservatives.

A vote for Ron Paul is a vote for Obama

A vote for Newt is a vote for Obama

A vote for Santorum is a vote for Obama

A vote for Mit is a vote for Obama

::headscratch:: so, how are y'all who are voting for these guys gonna accomplish anything other than getting Obama reelected?)

By not staying home and voting for the only human who has any possibility to defeat him, the GOP nominee. What happens in the primary is not what counts towards defeating Obama. Support someone in the primary and then you have two choices Obama or the GOP nominee, a conaervative 3rd party or non vote IS one chalked for Obama.

Nah voting for the GOP nominee in the general election, WHOEVER he is, is a vote against Obama. There is no other vote that counts against Obama. Third party or non vote is without a doubt a vote cast against Obama's opponent. VOTE for  or against Obama. It's easy.

Every vote cast or withheld has impact on whether Obama is re-elected or not.

They are smart enough to know that all running are career politicians including Paul.  That is why they are not excited.  But the real battle is still to get conservatives (notice I did not say republicans) in charge of both houses.

Really? If you're so smart then why didn't you know that Ron  Paul spent 50 years as an OBGYN or that he went back into the private sector for 10 years after his first two terms in Congress?

Don't do much research do you?

Good that you gave your last word because most of what you say is wrong anyway.

Ron Paul ran for president in 1988. Yes, but hten he went back into the private sector. He ran again in 08 like Romney and now he's running in 2012. So though you're not going to respond, I will say it for you. You stand corrected.

Here's another one fer ya fella. Though Santorum won the non binding straw poll in Minnosota, Ron Paul got all but one of the delegates. HE got all of them from Alaska. Nearly all from Nevada. Most from Iowa. Did your venerated New York Times or your other valued mainstream media sources tell you that? Oh wait. You won't answer because I'm a 53 year old Ron Paul groupie

In short, Paul is running a distant 4th in delegate count.
taller, better looking and smarter . . .

They turned me loose from the nervous hospital.  Said I was well.  Mmm hmm.

Suffering for your beliefs is called faithfulness, making others suffer for your beliefs is called being a jerk.

His cross, like the ark in the wilderness, is the center around which his people are to encamp; so that they cannot separate into factions, or withdraw from each other, without retiring at the same time from the presence of the cross.

this one seems the most generous to Paul and it shows that he is yet to win the most delegates of any of the states to select delegates.

I said I would not talk with RP groupies any more but this is just crazy.  How do you figure RP is second in delicate count.  He has 46 and is dead last.  You have to win some states to get a lot of delegates and he has not done that.
