Good questions....

I honestly would (and did) have similar fears if Ron Paul won the GOP nomination, but I'd say the immediate end of the wars and the end of prosecution of federal drug laws would make up for the possible risks of libertarian economic policies being blamed. Plus, I thought there might actually be a chance of us having a real recovery before Ron Paul's first term was up even if the short term chaos could potentially be higher. Plus I felt he was a long shot anyway, and I also felt this would be his last chance to run as president because of his age.

For your second question, I think a Ron Paul presidency would push harder than Romney would because a Ron Paul white house would care less about re-election. Where as Romney cares more about being elected/re-elected than anything else.
