7. I think we should do everything possible to encourage him.

The Corporate wing of the Republican Party will never give him the nomination, but the Teabaggers will love him. Whatever remnants of the Teabaggers remain by then, of course.

This could end up as a replay of 2012, with the 'baggers getting fed up & staying home after they watch the Corporatists kick Paul to the curb in favor of Rubio or Jebby (either of whom, in their deluded eyes, can solve the "Latino problem" while remaining corporate-friendly).

Paul should be encouraged strongly to run a third-party campaign after his inevitable Primary debacle, siphoning off large portions of the nutcase vote.
