What brought you to Ron Paul?
I attended the 1988 Libertarian Convention where Ron Paul won the Libertarian Party's nomination for President over Russell Means. A lot of us were very suspicious of Ron Paul (as we were of Bob Barr twenty years later), but he was an Excellent Presidential Candidate. I am pro-choice on Abortion, but Ron Paul was always very conscientious about his position being a respected but minority position within the party. He didn't have to do that,... but he did. Very impressive.
