Ron Paul is not a Liberal; he is a Conservative Libertarian.
A more traditional Republican, if you will.
As for the GOP Primaries, it is going to boil down to a two-man race between Mitt Romney and Ron Paul.
Rick Santorum has no money and no organization. He will be the next to go.
Newt has too much baggage. It's only a matter of time until it drags him under.
I have to say that Ron Paul has a better chance at the Nomination than Romney. He has virtually no baggage. Not to mention he has very strong support in Ohio, Texas and California; all very important states in the nomination process.
In a General Election between Romney and Obama, I have to say Obama will win. Obama has way too much ammunition and Mitt only has the support of the Republicans; you NEED INDEPENDENTS TO WIN THE PRESIDENCY!
In a General Election between Paul and Obama, Paul will win. He stands completely apart from Obama and truly represents the people. Obama has a plastic pellet to use against the Texas Congressman.
40% of the Country is Independent. A recent poll out showed Paul did better with Independents than ANY OTHER CANDIDATE, including the Incumbent President. He also has a Liberal AND Conservative fan base.
Despite my name, I only answer questions as unbiased and factual as I possibly can.
