    Whenever I ask someone, would you vote for Ron Paul, they say "who?". I don't think he has much of a chance to win as long as the media is blocking him out.

    nope, nope, nope!!!

    my mom is a public school teacher and I'm applying for government jobs after graduation, so I'm certainly not cutting out MY chances by voting for someone who wants to cut back on federal programs and such!

    (plus- I see social services as being beneficial to the country)

    of course, I don't really like any candidate so it goes, I guess!

    I will not. I have heard of him; he gets a lot of guerilla marketing aruond these parts. So much that I actually looked him up (as much of the guerilla marketing does not explain who he is and what he is about). His political opinions are not compatible to mine. Honestly, he doesn't have great poll numbers. And maybe it's because he's being shut out by the media. But it probably also its because he has very many strong opinions- pro-life, anti-social services, nonintervention, etc- that someone is much more bound to not vote for him. It makes his fans that much more fervent, but I'm confused as to his "main" platform. Perhaps he is a victim to the Republican-Democrat system and the fact that the values often come packaged in only two variations. But I think he's just too radical to really appeal to enough of the middle ground.

    Not that I am his target audience.

    I would, but I can't.

    The only reason I'd give money to him is because it'd be nice for a president not to be through and through bought by commercial interests. But, I don't expect it to happen. The nature of democracy is to vote for whoever will send money your way by taking it from whoever won't affect their ability to vote. Very very little will get in the way of the business-government monopoly on public opinion and fear mongering, so... very little will change, no matter who tries.

    After living in Idaho where they have cut back on social services and education to the point that their school's are falling apart and homeless people are beginning to crowd around dumpsters, I don't believe in that whole Libertarian creed, "Charity is the answer." Call me a socialist or fascist, but after seeing these conservative/libertarian practices in action, there would be no way in hell I would vote for Ron Paul. Every ideology sounds good on paper, including Ron Paul's, but when it simply doesn't work, then it doesn't work.
