I don't get you guys. The amount of support, votes, credibility and respect that Ron Paul received all around in 2012 compared to 2008 shows that the Ron Paul movement is growing, and will almost certainly continue to grow. You can compare the amount of votes he got in '08 to '12 and show that in most places his support has at least tripled, sometimes quadrupled.

The people who comprise this movement are generally quite educated, passionate, peaceful, and dedicated to their cause.

All this being said, it amazes me how easily most people dismiss the importance of the Ron Paul liberty movement. If it shows growth over the next 4 years that is even remotely like the growth from 2008 to 2012 - and there are many reasons to believe this will happen - this movement is going to play a huge part in the American political discourse and elections at every level for decades to come.

Even if I didn't support Ron Paul - which I do despite minor reservations I have over some of his propositions - I'd find a rally of his supporters to be a very interesting and noteworthy event.... The ideas shared there will only become more important and relevant to American political discourse as the years go by. And based on how much the Republican Party has already been influenced by Paul's fiscal conservatism, limited government, anti-Fed stance, that makes the Paulites a force to be reckoned with.

Stop.

You clearly have never encountered a true Ron Paul fan, what you have seen are Ron Paul supporters, but you have never encountered a Ron Paul FAN.

Ron Paul FAN's are some of the dumbest most idiotic people you will ever have the misfortune of meeting. Luckily for the world they exist only online in chat forums or in youtube video's, but when these people go out into the real world all they do is f*ck up the credibility Ron Paul has. These people literally go around and badger the f*ck out of people and any unfortunate reporter in the area asking them the most ridiculous and stupidest questions there are.

Democrats and Republicans have their fair share of dumba** fans, dont get me wrong, but Ron Paul fans are a special kind of f*cked up in the head who are single handedly doing more damage to Ron Paul's campaign then ANYTHING else right now, and thats why nobody will take him seriously, because from the outside he looks like a crazy person whose support only comes from other even more crazy fans

If you think this movement is really important ask yourself something. What would happen to this movement if they didnt have Ron Paul, do you think these supporters would organize and find another person to represent their views and rally behind and campaign for and donate money to? Or would they simply fade away and wait for the next bandwagon to jump on?

Gary Johnson.

He lacks charisma and takes a lot of sh1t from people. Just look at this interview. Dude was a complete @sshole to him and Gary Johnson did nothing:
