If you read all of the article, at the bottom it states he left the Republican Party before 1988 which is 20 years ago and became a libertarian.waveysmiley
And, after that, he returned to the Republican Party, running as a Republican against Democrats in the general elections.

He is certainly outside of mainstream Republican thought, and extreme in his views. If he is an embarrassment, some of his followers are more so.

Ron Paul is no longer considered a nutjob apparently.

Quote:

Pull US troops out of Afghanistan. Leave Iran alone. Legalise drugs. Get the government out of people's private lives. Say no to the bailout of Wall Street fat cats. As a menu of policy prescriptions, you might think that this all puts Ron Paul on the Soviet wing of the Democratic party. But you'd be wrong.


The 74-year-old Congressman from Texas, with his skinny frame and his hangdog face, is about as unlikely a poster child for the future of the Republican party as you are likely to find, but his ideas have struck chords with libertarian-minded college kids. Dismissed last year as the token nutjob in the line-up of Republican presidential candidates, his insurgent campaign proved surprisingly tenacious. Young people at music festivals wore "Dr Paul cured my apathy" badges, he spawned an internet fund-raising movement that had echoes of Barack Obama from the other side, and to this day he has a stronger YouTube presence than any other Republican politician.
