Ron Paul won a poll on who they would like to see as our next President.

This is why I will only vote for Ron Paul. He was also one of most Google last year.
Why would you vote for anyone else?

  • I think it is an interesting turn of events. I don't know why people were booing though. Maybe those were the diehard Republicans..you know the same old same old...and are threatened by the possiblity of a serious Ron Paul run.

  • the booing came from the New Republicans ( Neocons) they believe in the war.

    The real Republicans believe in small government, and not in this war.

    The neocons are afraid of him. Ron Paul will cut the money train.

    sweet you did not have to delete your question.

  • The great part of all this is that Ron Paul is starting to be listen to.
    He was asked to come on to all the talk shows after the election, the same people who called him nuts are now going to him for answers.

    This should tell how the media controls who you vote for! that is why you have to do your own research.

  • Wait. Watched the part where he was coming on, his whole speech, AND the part where he was going off. Ron Paul did not GET booed ! The crowd was cheering for the things he was advocating, and booing the things he was criticizing.

    They booed when he decried the principle that it is America's job to "make the world safe for democracy", and they booed a recent White House position about assassinating former American citizens.

    I'm not a dyed-in-the-wool advocate for Ron Paul, but let's have some TRUTH to criticisms of him, please.

    And it is indeed wonderful that he is getting listened to. ... END THE FED !!!
