Ron Paul - the mysterious U.S. candidate
Also, check out this great article from a Charleston, SC newspaper:
Ron Paul is the Johnny Cash of American politics. For decades, nobody in Nashville disputed that Cash was the genuine article, but by the early 1990s he was forgotten by a music industry more concerned with newcomers like Garth Brooks and Travis Tritt. Later Cash went on to resurrect his career on his own terms, and while remaining country to the core, he attracted a diverse audience, many of whom didn't even identify with country music.
The same could be said of Congressman Ron Paul. Since 1976, nobody in Washington D.C. denied that the Texas Republican was the genuine article, but by 2007 he was laughed off by a political industry more concerned with "serious contenders" like Mitt Romney and Rudy Giuliani. Paul forged ahead on his own terms, and while remaining conservative to the core, he has attracted a diverse audience, many of whom have never identified with the Republican Party.
But what does Ron Paul stand for? In a word — change. Yes, the most overused word in the 2008 presidential campaign applies to no one better than the Texas Republican, whose 10-term congressional career has been spent in virtual solitude for refusing to sell out his principles for politics.
