One more thing, what's pretty awesome is that I'm seeing several people on here that I would have thought to be liberal being big Ron Paul supporters. Just more proof that Paul can win the big election if he gets the nomination.
I'm actually a registered libertarian, partly because I'm so liberal on social issues. (e.g. basic civil rights, drug laws, abortion) and so conservative on economic issues like welfare, public services, spending, etc. While Paul and I might disagree on a few of the particulars (for instance I believe he is anti-gay marriage), he is still much closer to the majority of my values than any mainline candidate from either party
Paul didn't have much work to do convincing me on the message. What i've been impressed with is how much character and charm he has. He seems like a genuinely good guy, which I can't say for most of the candidates in ANY party.
