    No talk in here?

    He’s got legs. It’s possible.

    4.3 mil in one day, 6+ mil in one day. Probably raised more than any other republican candidate this quarter… not that I really care about republican candidates, but he’s getting it done where I thought someone like him would have 0 chance of getting a following 5 years ago.

    I’m a little shocked that places like the Poker Player’s Alliance, and gambling webmasters aren’t all over Paul. He’s the only national figure with a concrete stance on the issue, and 20 years of congressional voting records to back it up.

    No reason to regulate and tax. Your government has no business telling you what kind of games you can play in your own home, or how much they’d like to charge you for that activity. That’s where I’m at, anyway.

    Shocked they aren’t supporting Ron Paul?

    Come on OneGuy, while Americans might like to see an underdog. The American people and their organizations hate to commit to any politician unless they are one of the leaders in the polls and thought to have a good chance of winning.

    I love this one (no offense personally, but i just blew a fuse):
    I like my money too much to ever vote for a democrat.. simple

    Republican presidents, Reagan, Bush and Bush were in charge when about $7.5 trillion of all US debt has been run up. The national debt from George Washington thru Jimmy Carter was 1.1 trillion, Bill Clinton balanced the budget and created a surplus, Bush 2 blew out the budget.

    So, you like your money, but you prefer Republicans who spend the government deeper into debt, while pushing every policy/law that is designed to crush small business. Tax breaks for big Oil, subsidies for huge farmers and now changes to copyright laws making it harder for small inventors to protect their IP. Now these idiots give away Piracy, to settle a case where the US declared that free gaming markets are only required of countries that US companies want to sell to, but never the US.

    Thank G-D the Democrats aren’t running the country, imagine how much worse than these idiots from the Flat Earth Society the Dems would be.

    Actually, I am surprised how many people I have met who like Paul and have nothing to do with gambling.

    These are grass roots people – farmers and lower middle class folks.

    I don’t know that they will vote for him when it gets down to the wire – but they do say now that he is the first candidate who makes sense in a long time.

    Amcan: Agreed on the republicans syphoning off tons of money and ruining the economy.

    I used to be a most conservative republican, I now see I was wrong as can be. If you look back over the last few presidencies, the democrats were much better for the economy and the pocketbook.

    I like threads like this, but they always worry me – let’s try to continue to discuss without letting tempers flare please.

    Submitted for your approval. Or ridecule. :) He *can* win. Despite the fact that he’s disliked by big media/business interests, he’s likely raised more than any other republican candidate this quarter. Neither the repubs or dems want him around because he’s threatening to challenge federal corruption that took them all decades to build.

    x-http://thecaseforronpaul.com/ has some additional info as well.

    We’ll know more after Iowa, but I’ll go out on a limb and say he can take 3rd in Iowa. I think he’ll do even better in New Hampshire.

    No anger intended, just a lot of shock that people don’t look at the record.

    But this is the Politics forum, we have to expect a bit incitement, just not too mean/rude. Shall we try more of senatorial “My good friend from Georgia must still be drunk from last night!” ;)

    I do want to say, that while i disagree with the libertarian notion that “i have no responsibility to society, except to mind my own business”, i do like Ron Paul. Paul is honest, direct, seems open to discussion and has been pretty consistent throughout the years.

    I do know that if I was going out with a republican candidate for dinner, I would pick Paul, he seems to be bright, friendly guy.

    hey OneGuy, long time no see. I’m happy to vote Ron Paul into the Republican spot, not because he’d be an easy opponent, but because he’s the best of the party.

    Now, you know me better than that. :) I think most libertarians wouldn’t agree with that, either. I certainly have a responsibility. (and some tangible actions and expenditures to show for it) But, I’d prefer to send more money to charities I trust. The folks that tax in order to help others aren’t responsible enough with the money, since they have such little accountability. Smaller socialism works great, though. Families have been doing it for ages. Cities can even manage it to some extent.

    ty for the welcome. If I could see what I wanted, I’d want to see Gravel and Paul debate governmental roles. Unfortunately, they’ve pretty much already disposed of Gravel, and Kucinich is next. The rest look like big friends of corporatism to me, despite their small differences otherwise.

    Watching Paul closely as he is the “only” Republican I would even consider, and I actually like him more than any of the Dems. I’ve always associated more with the Libertarian point-of-view anyhow. Leave people alone to do what they want as long as they don’t hurt anyone else, and leave other countries alone as long as they aren’t threatening the US.

    AmCan, to make your point a little better, here’s a graph I found:
    http://zfacts.com/p/318.html

    Yes, the Republicans are the true tax and spend party.

    (note: the graph is cut off on the left, it spiked during WWII, and has only gone up in the Reagan, Bush and Bush years.)
