The dangers of idol worship... . People compiled all of their principles and fell in love with a man who embodied those principles. They expected that all they had to do was vote Ron Paul into office, and like a king, he would put the other branches of government back into their place, would get all new justices to the supreme court, would turn power back over to the states, and would eliminate the Fed. The truth is that no man could have done all of that within the constraints of the presidency. So now we have RP supporters talking about not showing up to the election or claiming that it doesn't matter who gets elected. Well, nothing could be further from the truth. Vote to help the best man win who actually can win with your vote.

I do not believe that most Ron Paul supporters are guilty of 'idol worship.' Indeed, most RP people think for themselves and are MUCH MORE informed that the average voter. By your logic, jdelligatti, no one should ever vote for a 3rd party candidate because they cannot win. In other words, vote for the lesser of 2 evils. As I see it, one of our worst problems is that our country has had only 2 major parties for far too long. Neither represent the people and both fail to address our real problems.

I was lukewarm toward Paul in the beginning. Same story you've heard before, I'm sure. .... it's just his foreign policy .... I don't like his stance on Israel .... I would rather fight these attacks on our freedom on other soil than ours. NO MORE. I was a Goldwater Republican when I was 8. I helped my parents with the campaign. I held my nose and voted for Dole and McCain. Never again. Research on your own. Vote your conscience. Listen to Eisenhower's farewell address.

After two long years of speculating, campaigning, hoping, and voting the Ron Paul presidential campaign has come to an end. At the end of this year, Ron Paul’s bid for the presidential ticket will be eclipsed by his retirement, after the completion of his four decades as a congressman. At the dignified age of 76 it seems unlikely that Ron Paul will make a fourth attempt for the presidency in 2016. And with Ron Paul’s certain departure from political life there stands a looming question of whether the Gen Y libertarian/populist movement can move beyond his legacy.

The Ron Paul Revolution...
