Trump is a joke. He's exactly what liberal/statist media wants from a Republican candidate, so they can embarass them. How could any Ron Paul supporter like Trump? He's ignorant, prowar, pays 0 attention to political policy and repercussions, and an asshole to boot. Who in the world would vote for him?

He's a recruiter for the Army Reserve.  It's more than possible that he's just trying to yank my chain...it's really hard for me to tell when he's serious.

Trump doesn't have any diplomatic skills whatsoever.  He would get us killed.

His purpose this go-round would be akin to Sarah Palin.  People would like a few of his no-nonsense views for about five seconds, in a hypothetical world.  His presence would require a few of the "serious contenders" to perform differently.  You could stand any asshole behind that Trump podium, and they'd have to address that asshole, as well. 

My dream darkhorse is David Letterman.  Now he would be a pleasure to watch, in place of Trump, and ultimately everybody would know it's a ruse.  But people just don't understand Trump is a..   I donno even what to call him.  He's a thing.    He's a joke.  He's like the political version of a funhouse mirror.  He would never even be there if people didn't want to look at a warped illusion. 

But putting "the football" in Trump's hands, fo' real.  No way.  Its not even remotely funny.

That would be a good choice. I also wouldn't mind seeing Howard Stern in that spot. All dressed up in a power-suit, business haircut, just play the whole part. Sure, HS would be more cartoonish than Letterman, but the words that came out of that guys mouth in a debate would be, well, memorable. To quote the last american indian, "His props would be as funny as bear cub slipping in stream, and his barbs would sting like thorns from blackberry bush, yet its fruit would be sweet upon my lips."

I voted for Huckabee in 2008

Dude.

What?  For me, it was a good thing, because it lead more or less to me becoming an anarcho-austrian.
When Rush Limbaugh, National Review Online, and all the other neo-con sources of news and information
on which I relied went nuclear on Huckabee, I started looking for alternative, "conservative" news sources, and found

Everyone started somewhere. I remember being a young kid thinking Jimmy Carter was the nicest man on the planet, with the best ideas in the universe. In my early 20's I was mostly neo-conish. I"ve pretty much tried it all at some point.

2008, I was a disillusioned ultra conservative Christian in college. Of course I voted for Obama. Then I read Atlas Shrugged, switched my major to econ, found Ron Paul, and learned a few things about politics., namely: we're fucked.

"Today, Paul has won the first of many debates in the 2012 campaign. This time his supporters are too numerous and important to both Fox News and the individual state GOP party leadership for them to again ban him from the debates regardless of how much they want to silence his freedom and free-market message."

"While it took a little while for the Republican candidates attending tonight’s debate to get going, the sheer diversity on the panel guaranteed some spirited answers, paramount among them Rep. Ron Paul’s steadfast adherence to civil liberties, which somehow concluded with him supporting legalization of heroin to raucous applause– highlighting the thick tension between conservatives and libertarians on the GOP."
