I've not been able to fully verify this but...today, incorporation papers were filed in Texas for a Ron Paul 2008 presidential exploratory committee that would enable him to begin raising money.
Rumors are swelling at the news of this but one of those that is most intriguing is that Ron Paul's intention is to form a GOP/Libertarian/Constitution fusion endorsement run. Since members of those three parties can't get along in the same room it would be interesting to see if this were possible.
If Ron Paul is on the November ballot it will give me the chance to correct a vote I placed back in 1988 for George H.W. Bush. Had I understood that year that the GOP did not represent my views then Ron Paul would've received my vote on top of the 400,000+ others he earned.
If Ron is in fact running then voting for him would break three of my own rules for candidates for president:
1. Texans should not be allowed to run.
2. I'd have to technically vote for a Republican.
3. I never trust anyone with two first names.
So I'm a hypocrite. I'd support him in a heartbeat.
