      He doesn't want to legalize drugs, he wants the states to decide. He's not an isolationist, he is for open trade. He just doesn't want to keep killing civilians and hold down the military industrial complex. His followers are honest, and won't vote for 2nd best. If it means an Obama second term, it only increases the likelihood of a true constitutionalist to take over. It's not about slowing the speed of the car towards the cliff, it's about stopping and turning around. Romney is for the former, Paul...the latter.
