Whether he thinks so or not, he, along with the Tea Party, is doing a pretty good job.
Who cares about the Republican Party. The R's and the D's are the ones that made it a "one-party-or-another" system. So what if they have to change their mainstream message.
We have a country to take back from the elite crooks who have been robbing us blind our whole lives.
If the Republican Party does not matter...why doesn't Dr Paul just leave and run as a Libertarian......Maybe because he would get even less attention than he gets now?? Just askin....
Well, first off, the Republican Party is the party of Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry, John Taylor, and many other libertarian fore-fathers.
To be quite honest, the people who should be out of the R party is everyone BUT Ron Paul. They should all form the "WE LOVE TAXES AND KILLING YOUR CHILDREN FOR OUR PROFIT" Party.
(yes, the party name SHOULD be in all caps: it's more annoying that way)
Steve, you pose an interesting question.
It is my opinion, Steve, Ron Paul is not hurting the Republican Party. Very few of his followers will support the GOP ticket when he drops out of the race. Most are Libertarians, opponents of the Fed, isolationists, and pacifists who are totally out of step with the rest of the Republicans and they are not likely to transfer their loyalty en masse to the final party ticket. This means only the racists will remain because they have no where else to go.
Just my opinion, Steve, just echoes from an empty vase.
IF he had an ounce of integrity, he would be running as a Libertarian.
If he had an ounce of integrity he would have known what was in those newsletters......oh..he did. Nevermind.
Actually the original Republicans (the Anti-Federalists) are RIGHT up Ron Paul's ally.
I think it's the rest of the party who has no integrity. They should all be in "the Chicken Hawk Party". Along with Obomba.

So, after Paul wins the presidential campaign in 2012, he'll run the next four years as a Libertarian.
I thought of you the other day! I was watching an older Daily Show and the guest that day started talking about Ron Paul. I can't remember who the guest was but he was fun to watch, very vibrant personality. He was talking about how the Republican party isn't about small government, just small government for democrats, they still want big government, just for themselves only. It was a fun watch and I think John didn't quite know what to say to the guy cause it wasn't exactly easy to argue (or not like the guy really)
I wish I could remember the guys name
I think Newt's missionary position with various women will hurt more
and of course, you would know! what hurts women, I mean!
Missionary is not the position I'm worried about.
And the recipient isn't women.
It's our country!
I don't believe RP is hurting the GOP at all.
I think his presence in the campaign is refreshing and important.
In a very real way, he is pointing out how far the GOP has drifted from its roots.
The party is deeply divided. Schizo to the core.
No wonder they are having such a hard time rallying around a candidate.
They don't know what they stand for or even what they stand against!
Ron Paul during last night debate said that the blockade of the USA at the Straits of Hormuz is considered an act of war by Iran. That was the first time I ever heard him speak and now know why him and Santorum are being used as foils by the GOP to make the Grinch & Romney look better.
I hope the the Grinch wins the GOP primary - he is sure to lose against Obama.
Ron Paul cannot run as a Libertarian. He signed the personhood amendment. That is why he is a Republican, IMO, because he is anti-abortion.
Libertarians stand for freedom for the individual. He fails on that issue.
In that, he stands right with the R's. They are not for freedom, and should stop with that canard!

this guy is giving a perspective that needs to be heard Specifically, on all the metrics that a year ago everyone accepted as useful indicators of political standing, Ron Paul is not just a front-runner but a strong one.First, and most directly, he does extremely well in polls. The organization of...

I just stumbled on this story and am really impressed. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/11/2 … 09102.htmlThe story is about Ron Paul's stance that the fed should take a hands off approach to medical marijuana, that it should be down to the states. My only worry is that Obama campaigned...

Is Ron Paul giving birth to a movement that can develop into a full fledged political party?Maybe attracting real independents not the pseudo independents that are really just to the left of the democratic party or to the right of the republican party?
