Ron Paul probably shouldn’t expect a presidential endorsement from Florida Rep. Allen West. The Republican congressman had some strong words for the candidate Saturday, two days after Paul suggested during Thursday’s GOP debate that Iran be allowed to develop a nuclear weapon because so many other countries already have them.

By far the oldest candidate in the race at 75, Ron Paul is suddenly a top contender. He has a lot of younger supporters, mostly because he favors legalizing pot , and adopts the sort of extreme intellectual positions that have also drawn college age kids to "pure" philosophies like Communism and Ayn Rand's Positivism for generations.

To bring about radical and permanent change in any society, our primary focus must be on the conversion of minds through education. — Congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul Sigh. Somebody needs to say this. Does Ron Paul have a lot of interesting ideas he puts forward as a presidential candidate? Yes.
