Ron Paul may not have as many supporters as some of the other candidates in this year’s Republican nominating process, but those he does seem to be well-funded and very dedicated. Those facts may play a major role in the re-election of Barack Obama in November.
Like Ross “Where the rubber meets the road” Perot, Ron Paul has never seen a TV camera or a microphone he didn’t like. That coupled with his crusty “My way or no way” attitude may very well cause him to continue on for what he is actually seeking; attention, pure and simple.
If he feels that another four year of Obama would be better than four years of Mitt Romney (if nominated), a campaign as an independent might make some kind of sense. However, if he gets in just to play the role of spoiler, in order to stroke his ego and maybe get even with Romney for keeping him from getting the nomination, he will be doing his country a grave disservice.
Is revenge really that sweet?
