I would just as soon people leave the Republican party, and do not vote for any Republicans. Among other things, Ron Paul does not believe that women should have the right to their own bodies. If you are a white male Christian, Ron Paul is probably a good candidate for you, but as a white male Christian, I wouldn’t vote for him.
With that said, if you won’t agree then at least I hope you’ll accept that for all my disagreement with Ron Paul, he is honorable to his own beliefs, and it would be preferable that he win the Republican nomination than any of the other candidates running.
Update: Daniel Larison observes the imminent crack-up of the Republican party.
