I don't really like the fact that we need Ron Paul to fix us up. Who's going to save us when he's not there (exaggeration). There are a lot of issues me and him don't see eye to eye, like NASA and science funding, but he kinda is what we need right now. I think Obama would have been a great president in the pre-9/11 world, personally, but at the same time, who's to say the next president doesn't just undo what Ron Paul does or undoes. I really don't think anything good will come out of it if he got elected in some ways, because we need a political shift. Old people are basically fucking this country up with backwards mentality like SOPA, Patriot Act, NDAA, and all the shit that has come out in the last 12 years. It's good to see more young libertarian voters these days, but we need a sustained change in ideology, not just Ron Paul.
I also think Ron Paul still has a pretty good chance of becoming the republican nominee:
1. You know he's mainstream when RJ supports him :P. (I'll eat my words if you were a Ron Paul supporter in 2008)
2. McCain got the nominee when he only had 7% in Iowa. Iowa isn't a good indicator for republican nominees it seems.
I'll vote Ron Paul straight up if Obama signs SOPA. If Ron Paul isn't the nominee, I won't vote, or vote for a Libertarian independent.
If Obama rejects it and Ron Paul is the nominee, I'll have to think (leaning toward Obama). If Obama rejects it and there is a nutjob republican, I'm voting Obama.
