He is not even listed in most major polls as a possibility.

No one can choose someone who is not a choice.

Two sides of the same coin. The powers do not allow choice, as you my choice incorrectly.

What a man believes upon grossly insufficient evidence is an index into his desires -- desires of which he himself is often unconscious. If a man is offered a fact which goes against his instincts, he will scrutinize it closely, and unless the evidence is overwhelming, he will refuse to believe it. If, on the other hand, he is offered something which affords a reason for acting in accordance to his instincts, he will accept it even on the slightest evidence. The origin of myths is explained in this way. - Bertrand Russell

The reason Ron Paul doesn't have a chance is he can never be acceptable to the retardican base, who are the majority of primary voters.

If he were a third party candidate, he could probably get a fair % in a general election, but prob not more than Perot got in 1992, even if he was as well funded. There are a lot of chokeholds on our election system in the US that bar 3rd party candidates from equal participation. (this is probably the only time I will even slightly agree with Jerome about anything: The two major parties don't want to share, and they are responsible for the current blocks against 3rd party candidates)

Ignorance is preferable to error; and he is less remote from the truth who believes nothing, than he who believes what is wrong.
