    What are the chances, in your opinion, that we elect Ron Paul as president in 2012?

    Do you think he'd run as an independent or republican?

    That is an interesting question - I'd say very little.  I don't think he is "main stream" enough, nor can he get backing by those who are.

    Arrrgh!  This is TWICE now - your questions are so provoking that I can't stop answering them - even if this is not a great answer.

    I think you need to come over for coffee sometime.

    It will never happen.  He is a great man, but several things are against him.  In addition to all the political and cultural reasons, he is getting along in years.  I doubt if he will even run.

    He doesn;t have the money to run a successful election. If he did, I'd be in the US now.

    Ron Paul has about 0% of winning in 2012.  He just doesn't have enough voters that will back him.

    Have a good day.

    Zero. I used to be a Ron Paul fan, but he has just gotten stranger with the years.

    Nobody thought Obama would win in 2007.

    So you can't Dr. Paul out either!
