If he doesn't get the GOP nomination, will Ron Paul run as a 3rd party candidate?

I think that he will not.  As much as he may not like the republican establishment, he recognizes that Obama is a greater threat to this nation. Plus Obama is a much bigger spender than will be on the republican side and Paul's biggest message is fiscal responsibility.

Yes he will.  Conservatives aren't going to love the choice between a moderate in Mitt and a liberal in Obama. This is a real opportunity for Ron Paul. He might surprise some people.

I don't think he will. I think it's pretty much in the bag for Mitt at this point.  Obama and Mitt will probably have $1 billion a piece.  That certainly has got to scare off any 3rd party run.  How much money does the Donald have?
