He will *NEVER* get nomination from GOP. And he is as much of a Jesus freak as the rest of them. Ron Paul sounds smart, yes, but he will have to fight the same amount of bullshit in house and congress, as Obama is fighting right now. GOP would nominate Bachman before him, because she levels with the majority of their ignorant voter base.
Two party system is a complete failure, but for the most people it is 18 months of entertainment and not as much as desire for your candidate to win, but desire for the other candidate to fail.
