"As Ron Paul prepares to mount his third campaign for the presidency, he does so from a dramatically better position than he was is at the beginnings of his previous bids. In 1988, he was a Libertarian shouting from the political wilderness .... In 2012, Paul runs as an increasingly iconic Republican with a good many more allies inside the party and a claim to fame that most of his fellow contenders for the GOP nod lack: a job as a congressman that places him in the thick of national debates." [editor's note: An interesting progressive perspective on RP; of some value to libertarians as well - SAT] (04/30/11)
