Why do you ask?? simple...his anti war stance. Many voted for Obama hoping for "change." what did they get??? more of the status quo when it comes to our foreign policy. Obama continues more of what Bush started....and has expanded on it. He has continued the patriot act...and expanded upon it. He continues to spend...and spend more...and our country continues down the path to bankruptcy.
Ron Paul to those educated in politics has the respect of both sides....even if they do not agree with him...Why do they? Because he is consistent and you know where you stand with him. He has been saying the same things for 30 years....is a "libertarian" and not part of the STATUS QUO. He does not tow the party line or partisan politics. The Republicans gave him the nickname Dr. No.
He has already stated the very first thing he would do...and what he has the power to do as President is to bring the troops home...and he would do that guaranteed...not keeping them there for corporate interests.
Why risk Romney...or Gingrich or Bachmann becoming president?? Because I can guarantee you...if the economy gets a little bit worse....Obama is gone..regardless of who he is running against.
Lets send a message to the establishment Democrats!!!!!!!!! Lets rid ourselves of the status quo Republican. Lets stop the wars!!!!
