He wouldn't have a job for very long
Ron Paul should be retired already. Don't know how much more people expect from this man.

I begin with the principle that all men are bores. Surely no one will prove himself so great a bore as to contradict me in this. - Soren Kierkegaard
This implies he will also,Drugs are designed to dull our moral integrity. (Nov 1999)

No medicinal marijuana - create synthetics instead. (May 1999)

He is a pro-intervention, big military guy.On January 28, 2010 he formally endorsed Marco Rubio, Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate in the State of Florida.
He endorsed incumbent U.S. Senator John McCain, Republican of the State of Arizona for re-election in 2010.
Now, I understand and like Steve Forbes and wish he was our choice in 1996 (over Dole). I was excited about a long shot candidate who was an improvement over the others. Given the possiblity of Ron Paul, a metric shit load improvement over every other person on the big stages, Steve Forbes did not support him.
It is not pettiness that makes me dislike Forbes (e.g., "I supported Forbes but Forbes didn't support Ron Paul.") rather I am judging his character by the immoral act of endorsing Rick Perry over Ron Paul. Imagine the straight-laced Steve Forbes giving all his opinions about small government and freedom and empowering the individual. The Rick Perry endorsement is when he bursts out laughing and says, "Fuck you all - I was just kidding!".
Anybody who believes in just half of what Forbes has claimed, would have been a Ron Paul supporter. This isn't about 100%! It is about a sub-70% failing grade. Steve Forbes isn't close and I see zero point in having kind words about him.

Perhaps Forbes should buy a clue. It appears that he hasn't heard Ron Paul's call to END THE FED!
