    If Ron Newsletters Paul isn't a republican, then why doesn't run as a libertarian and hold office as one?

    I don't buy it; he's a chicken"poop" if he doesn't run as what he claims to be.

    Ron Paul is way outside of the mainstream and there is only a small section of the population who agree with his ideas. That is why he only got 10% of the vote.
    I somewhat admire him because he is a man of principle, but I think his policies are simpleminded and disagree with almost all of them.

    I think he is usually the smartest guy in the room and hard to understand because of that. But really he is in line with the purest ambitions of the founders I believe.

    Please explain what you mean by simple minded. The dude is very very intelligent.

    Simpleminded meaning fools like you think he has good ideas.... just kidding

    OK simpleminded is not a good adjective. My bad for not thinking through what I posted. I think unrealistic and idealistic might be better, which I feel describes alot of the Libertarian thinking. For instance (you will love this) End the Fed, well it turns out the Fed does a pretty good job of fiscal policy and before there was a central bank the US economy went through frequent booms and busts. The Fed might be messy and secretive and conflcts with the Liberterian principles but it has been effective. Another example is his debate answer on how to pay for medical care for people who can't afford it. His answer was that charities used to do when he was a doctor. Well, that method no longer works as medical care is much too expensive now to think that local charities can pick up he tab for people who can't it.
    Of course his answer was much better than the audience members who cheered on the let them die policy.

    OK how do you judge a politician's intelligence? Usually if you agree with his ideas. Obama was editor of the Harvard law review, Romney has an MBA and a Law Degree from Harvard. Clinton was a Rhodes scholar. Nixon as suposed to be brilliant as well, while Reagan was supposed to be simple minded. No sure what any of this matters as I have found intelligence as it is traditionally measured has little correlation to sucess in any field.
