Ron Paul Declares

Ron Paul announced his candidacy for the Republican nomination to be President of the United States of America on ABC's Good Morning America. "The time has come around to the point where the people are agreeing with much of what I've been saying for 30 years," he said. "So I think the time is right."

The evergreen libertarian leaning Republican is somewhat of a cult hero amongst libertarians and fiscal conservatives and will undoubtedly be popular amongst independents, more moderate Democrats including the fiscally conservative Blue Dogs. This is Paul's 3rd run at the nomination with his first in 1988 when he ran as a 3rd party Libertarian. The man known as 'Dr. No' earned acclaim for his unique swashbuckling style in his ultimately doomed but rather popular bid for the Republican nomination in 2008.
