He's quite adamant that he's non-interventionist, not isolationist.

If the Republicans were to nominate a libertarian-leaning candidate (not Ron Paul) I think they would have a good chance of pulling in many from the civil liberties wing of the Democratic party. Concentrate on ending the wars in the Middle East, ending the drug war, reigning in the civil liberties abuses which have been propogated by both parties since 9/11.

Unfortunately, I don't think such a candidate has much of a chance in the Republican primaries.
What's wrong with Paul?

I ask because I know a little about him, but from what I hear him say, he has his head on straight.
I've heard that he's "a loon", but I don't know why. The only "bad" thing I've heard him say is that he's for pressuring North Vietnam to give us the rest of the MIAs back. I suppose that might be a bit conspiracy-ish, but assuming there are any of our soldiers are still in prison over there, I'm for bringing them home. <shrug>

If that's the worst his critics can come up with, he should win by a landslide.

What do you define as "reasonable"?

Might be too soon though.
Nothing in his Wikipedia entry makes me want him to not run, but that's all I know about the guy.

Re: 2012 Presidential Election

Ooh... I wonder if he'll pick Rand Paul as his running mate. That right there might let me get my 2012 presidential voting decision over with.
