He's a quack. I think he has so many fanboys because he's different from other politicians and that's what everyone really wants right now: someone who's not a typical Republican/Democrat. Unfortunately, "anything different" doesn't necessarily equate to better...

No, I've supported him for a long time simply because he's the closest thing to a libertarian to appear in the Big Two.
The OP misrepresents his social positions. But most important to me is his consistent pursuit of limited constitutiona
government, & eschewing foreign adventurism. Paul differs from other not-one-of-the-usual-candidates, such as Ross
Perot, who didn't really differ politically from his competition. Paul actually represents something different.

It's perfectly fine to not vote for him, but one should do so for the right reasons.

How could he be considered a libertarian if he is opposed to the separation of church and state and to women's rights and gay rights?

Disputed claims such as those ought to be supported.
It would be like claiming that Obama is a Muslim, ie, it is an opinion which should not be stated as fact.
If I thought Paul would gut civil liberties, I'd drop him faster than Clinton (Bill, not Hillary) can drop trou.
We should note that many of his views on social matters wouldn't affect public policy because of constitutional limitations on governmental authority.
I disagree with on many things, but I'd vote for him because I believe the net effect of his being in office would be to advance social & economic liberty.

But worry not, he won't get the Publican nod to run for prez.
They'll pick another one of the usual bland statists.

Would Jesus vote for him?
Who cares?

I would like all of the quoted above (3-6, 9) explained upon in greater detail if possible. That is, "how?". I'm not going to debate or anything as it'd be pointless for me since I'm in Europe - yet I'm just genuinely curious.

I am puzzled why people would think there are reasons TO vote for Ron Paul. That is a head-scratcher, to be sure.

I don't know what "common-sense Constitutional government" looks like.
I haven't seen it as a general political agenda yet.
Btw, hello there, Lord Humongous.

- Smaller government
- Fewer wars
- Less foreign adventurism
- Lower taxes
- Limited constitutional government
- A doctor instead of a lawyer in the White House
The above certainly won't appeal to many, but those reasons are why some of us would prefer him to the competition.
