Another Ron Paul

Remember how I wrote that the Republican Party may nominate Ron Paul in 2012?

Well, Salon just published an article about an up-and-coming GOPer who is out to seize the Ron Paul mantle:

I think Johnson has an excellent chance of doing it. Despite his pro-choice, pro-gay marriage stances - all of which are guaranteed to alienate the party's Christian Right base - Johnson is so beloved by libertarians within that organization that he seems like the natural heir to Paulism. He has all of Ron Paul's assets (obvious intelligence, ideological purity, stalwart conviction)without any of the disadvantages (advanced age, history of questionable racial remarks).

Just a thought.

RON PAUL has ZERO history of racially questionable remarks. Get your facts straight, or you will be turning off his supporters in droves, not attracting them.
