He had the highest rating on the MSNBC internet poll after the debate on Thursday. The mainstream media doesn't consider him a 1st tier candidate, which is suspicious. It appears to me he has a solid following among people active on the net. He is popular on Youtube also. I have watched him interrogate Greenspan and Bernanke during Congressional testimonies. He seems very solid. I like this guy. http://www.ronpaul2008.typepad.com/ http://www.ronpaul2008.com/html/AboutRon_fx.html Brief Overview of Congressman Paulâs Record He has never voted to raise taxes.
