OMG NO NOSECONES
Just saw this, this evening. I am pleased.

Exploratory Committee - whatever that means.

Text from link:

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Texas Rep. Ron Paul plans to announce the formation of a 2012 presidential exploratory committee at an event in Iowa.

Drew Ivers, Paul's 2008 Iowa caucus campaign manager, says the Republican congressman will announce his plans Tuesday at a Des Moines hotel. An exploratory committee would allow Paul to raise and spend money toward a 2012 candidacy.

Ivers says Paul also plans to name an Iowa campaign team. Paul finished fifth in the 2008 caucuses and has visited Iowa seven times since. The Iowa caucuses traditionally lead off the presidential nominating season.

Paul is a favorite among libertarians and enjoys strong backing by many conservative tea party supporters.
Happiness is zero-gee with a sinus cold.
There's still a bunch of Vote Ron Paul signs up around.

I guess they'll change the numbers.

Can we not have the paul supporters spamming up every political forum this election, at least?

I hated that in 2008

Gunpla is amazing!
I appreciate his anti war stance but his policies scare the hell out of me.
@Acebrock: Ron Paul /b/?

[up] Oh, it was a filter or something that got set up last election. Turned "sup" into "Ron Paul", then it spread to other parts of the net.

I like Ron Paul. I'd vote for him unless Morgan Freeman ran as the Democratic candidate.

Better than a Trump ticket.

If Trump becomes president I give up on this country.

Both the Pauls are libertarian whackadoos who got co-opted by the GOP when they got too popular. I wouldn't cast my lot for them if Newt Gingrich put a .44 to my head.
If I were to write some of the strange things that come under my eyes they would not be believed.

Luckily for me, I've already given up on this country.

Paul 2012!

Besides, he's the only presidential candidate who got an A+ Rating form Gun Owners Of America in 08'. Maybe he can fix how backward Cali is. Probably not, but he can try.

Ron Paul was on Colbert Report this evening. Hilariously even my incomplete one course in economics was enough for me to tell 90% of his beliefs are either bullshit, or entirely insane.
Going Forth!

[up][up] Please tell me his entire gun policy isn't "GUNS FOR EVERYONE YEEHAW" and then fires in the air with his revolvers while dancing.

Judging by Paul's record, he is not full of bullshit. I admire that quality, one that is lacking in most politicians. Are his beliefs insane? Maybe.

All the more reason for me to want him in office.

I'd suggest y'all follow the money trail that the Pauls took to get this noticed...

I kind of want the whole thing to fall apart, that's part of why I suppose.

It would certainly be fun, in a "watch the flames / car crash / whatever" kind of way, if Ron Paul became President. Of course, it would probably be a good idea to relocate somewhere distant in order to watch in safety.

He's right about some things, but crazy wrong about some others.
A brighter future for a darker age.

Question: Why does Pual think it's a good idea to go back on to the gold standard, when the value of all the gold in the world is far less than the total of all US currency?

He'll probably get his son to be his running mate and it would create another Mc Cain/Palin ticket (Rand's anti-environment beliefs are just the beginning).
They see me troll'n
I never got the Gold standard shtick anyways. Since Gold would just end up another form of fiat, since Gold can't support the world economy without becoming such.

To hell with Ron Paul.

Phil Davison 2012!

Barkey: Besides, he's the only presidential candidate who got an A+ Rating form Gun Owners Of America in 08'.
That's because, being from the ALP, his policy answer on every question is “KILL TEH GUBMINT 1!1”. In a few areas like gun control, that lines up with reasonable policy, in most others (like… The existence of policemen, for instance) it lines up with absolute bark at the moon crazy.

It's kind of like Sharia, basically, except even more kneejerk.

Eric,

[up][up] Honestly, I'd like a decent explanation too. My economics professor was for the gold standard and for the life of me I can't see why. Something about the supply of gold in the world not changing much, therefore its value wouldn't change. He conveniently didn't mention how the value of gold has gone up and down like everything else in the world despite this.
Pro-Freedom Fanatic
Ron Paul is right about guns, weed and war/international intervention.

His economic beliefs are sorta crazy, but he's very pro-gun, honestly pro-weed and a free speech nut.

I do not like him because he's pro-life and wants a gold standard. Still, I prefer them to anti-gun and anti-weed guys.

I see the Awesomeness.
Wouldn't his powers mostly be restricted to foreign policy and vetos?
