Default Still think Ron Paul doesn't have a chance?

"There has been some major movement in the Republican Presidential race in Iowa over the last week, with what was a 9 point lead for Newt Gingrich now all the way down to a single point."

I still think Perry is going to have a comeback, and wind up with the nomination.

I know he has a chance. It's quite simple. If enough people vote for someone they have a chance. From what I have been seeing he has placed 1st 2nd or 3rd in most of the polls. With that said I believe that every one has their opinion about him but he seems like the only logical candidate to me.

Sadly in Iowa I would have to agree with you. If it has anything to do with the bible or corn they're on it. Perry can fukc up more than he already has and still win the nomination here.

I'll throw my vote away for him. . .

I pray he doesn't run as an independent cause that sets up a sure victory for Oblahblah.

I don't believe I could vote for Ron Paul. His domestic policy is phenomenal, but his isolationist foreign policy scares the hell out of me.
I pray he does not get the nomination.

x2. I agree that we need to worry about what's going on here before we worry about everybody else, but a sudden pull out would create a queef heard around the world.

I suggest that you go look at the definition of isolationism and of non-interventionism as they relate to foreign policy. There is a big difference between the two. After you understand the difference then go and look at Ron Paul's stance on foreign policy in his own words.

You will find that Ron Paul is actually a non-interventionist.

Which in our current world, would not work. If a perfect world we would let people fight their own wars, but the does not work anymore. Remember those 6 million Jews killed because we didnt want to go to war?

Sorry Charlie, I will not vote for Ron Paul. Love the guy, and I appreciate that he stands by his values, he is a great congressman, but I do not want to see him in the Whitehouse.

What is working with our current stance of pro-intervention?
