    As one of the readers of this article stated so well, "Sure hope he decides to run. He is the only one worth voting for."

    Ron Paul: 'Too early' to decide on 2012

    By Michael O'Brien - 11/14/09 04:46 PM ET

    It's "too early" to say whether Rep. Ron Paul will run again for president, the Texas Republican said Saturday.

    The libertarian congressman told a crowd in Iowa, the starting point for a presidential campaign, that he is simply focused on reelection to the House.

    "It’s not on my mind, it’s too early, and I will be filing for my congressional seat,” Paul said in an interview with IowaPolitics.com.

    “I don’t have any plans made," he said.

    *Boggle* The last I knew, RP was a Republican. Did I miss something? I realize he's got a lot of Libertarianlike ideals, but he's not a member of the Libertarian party, is he?

    RP has been a card carrying Libertarian for years. We don't discriminate against Republicans . . . or Dems.

    If one is a libertarian philosophically, then a small "l" is used as this article did. When one is a member of the Libertarian Party, as I am, one uses a large "L". However, when to anyone who is philosophically libertarian a small "l" can be used any time.
