    Are you kidding? He's America's only hope. RepubliClowns? DemoCraps? Put 'em all together and they ain't worth 2 dead flies.
  2. Bloomberg for President. The only right independent non-PAC oriented choice.

    I'm for Ron Paul, the problem is everyone I tell outside of the ET community thinks I'm crazy. He has less than 1 in 1,000,000 chance of winning, but I feel it's worth a vote.
  4. Yup. Ron Paul '08 here. Hope he keeps building momentum.

    A prime example of the political naivete of the American voter.
  6. The following is from :

    Ron Paul Odds Have Been Slashed to 6 to 1: Now Favored Over Romney

    Public pushes Ron Paul odds down even further this week

    Forget those political polls. Throughout time (at least the last decade), oddsmakers have had an uncanny knack for predicting political races. It's not so much that they have a crystal ball, rather the lines adjust based on public action. When it comes to political betting, the public action is presumed to represent votes. The theory being that someone who is likely to vote on Mitt Romney probably won't bet on Ron Paul winning.

    The gambling public seems to believe that 2008 Presidential candidate Ron Paul stands a very good chance of winning, so much so that this past week odds on Dr. Paul have been slashed further from 8 to 1 down to 6 to 1, with the potential payout of $600 for every $100 bet. (see betting odds at

    This gives Ron Paul shorter odds than Mitt Romney. He's only slightly trailing behind John McCain (5 to 1 odds) and Rudy Giuliani (5 to 1 odds). Fred Thompson is the favorite among Republicans with odds of 4 to 1.

    We'll put an asterisk on this one since so much of the betting action on Ron Paul has been prompted by readers. Still, it is a reflection of ardent support for their favorite candidate.

    Things are too good in the US for a man with Ron Paul's principles to be elected. What is ironic is that the coming Depression could be averted by his policies and yet it will take a Depression for Americans to see that they need a man like Ron Paul.

    I am going to support him so that at least when my kids are seeing the devastation that the self interested Dem and GOP leadership have wrought I will be able to look them in the eye and say that my hands are clean.

    I just visted his site and gave his campaign financial support. It is the support the he has been receiving that is forcing the media to take him seriously. As we all know talk is cheap.
  9. I would support him if I thought he actually had a chance of winning. Unfortunately, he doesn't, so I won't waste my vote.
