Republican congressman from Texas(and 1988 Libertarian Party presidential candidate) Ron Paul seems to be doing pretty good for libertarianism these days. He's gotten more press exposure and more Internet buzz than any libertarian

Who do the "Libertarians" choose for their President over Ron Paul?

Is Ron Paul any different today that he was in 1988?

Are the same libertarians (small 'l' on PURPOSE) that campaigned for him then some of the ones who are pointing out petty reasons to not support him now?

Ron Paul in 'column A'. All top tier candidates in both major parties in 'column B'. Libertarian candidate (whoever that may be, I can't begin to guess) that is shut out of the debates, and treated like all Libertarian candidates in the past in 'column C' .

To me, this is a 'no-brainer'.

To someone who has struggled and fought for so many years to get the Libertarian Party where it is today and gained as much ground as they have (God bless them) and see large numbers of registered Libertarians sensing the possibility of Freedom in their lifetime getting as good a foothold as a Ron Paul Presidency re-registering Republican so they can vote for him - I can see their reluctance in seeing all their hard work come to naught (which is wrong - the Ron Paul Revolution could NOT have gotten as far as it has without principled individuals within the LP throwing their weight behind the 'Hope for America' campaign).
The one party that has been most accused of 'fracturing the vote' now find itself in a familiar role - only this time it's Freedom that it's detracting from - not the R's and D's.
