Ann Coulter is good for raising the important issues to new levels and she loves controversy. You don't have to believe in evreything she says, but it gives you something to think about.
I also like Ron Paul and read his book. The book is full of problems that he laid out in detail, but he didn't offer any answers--at least in the book. The book was more education than an actual manifesto. He has discussed some good ideas in other media outlets, but most of the things that his followers believe he would do are not within the power of the president to do. Yeah I know, someone should explain that to Obama.
I also find it curious that Ron Paul seems to attract many left-wingers, as well as Libertarians. When he ran for president, his base was not made up primarily of Libertarians. I knew many people who I would call extremely liberal who would have voted for Ron Paul just because of their deep mistrust of the government. I think Ron is more of an anti-politician personality.
Ron Paul will not run for president again, but it looks like Rand Paul may do so in 2016. Rand Paul does not seem to attract the extreme left-wing personalities like his dad did. He is more of a Tea Party candidate, so at this point we do not know how successful he would be. I would like to see a rise of the Libertarian party. It is the best answer to as an anti-Progressive-Obama party. The Tea Party is a better fit for the Libertarian party, but the Republicans hold the conservative party power.
