Overstock CEO: 'I'll write in Ron Paul' (Video)

After Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne made it clear he was not interested in President Barack Obama or Mitt Romney for 2012 president, he boldly stated that instead, he'd write in Ron Paul. What? Ron Paul?

A company who has over 1,200 employees, Overstock's Byrne slammed our current president by communicating that basically, Obama has followed in George W. Bush's footsteps. He did give Mitt Romney a positive moment when he said he could probably manage our current situation better than Obama, but he clearly communicated the Democrat and Republican candidates are more alike than they are different.

Texas Rep. Ron Paul would surely agree with the CEO, because recently he said in an interview on CNBC.com there is no need for a third party when we only have one party now, due to the similarities in Obama and Romney.

Byrne ended his recent Greta Van Susteren interview with his reason for writing in Ron Paul. "He's the only one who understands the Constitution and the benefits of a limited government."

YouTube commenters agreed with Byrne and showed their passionate Ron Paul support under Van Susteren's viral video:

Ron Paul leads...doesn't follow orders and the Orders he gets are from the Constitution...He will protect the people against corrupt politicians and banksters...on & on we can go about this..., communicated edisonoside.

swamplight79 Ron Paul was the only candidate with a consistent record and the courage to speak out against the unconstitutional, private federal reserve that is now completely devaluing our currency, according to plan, and dovetailing with another war that your propagandist news agency is promoting.

You, Greta---along with the rest of your co-workers---are traitors and decievers. Your news agency is not conservative---but imposters; enemies of conservatism and Liberty; liars wrapping yourselves in the flag.

NewSimpleadams Ron Paul would have been the near perfect president.

Author's questions:

Why did Van Susteren's recent video (above) asking "Why do you think Ron Paul should be president," go viral?

I wonder how many, like CEO Patrick Byrne, are still planning on writing in Ron Paul for president?

Why is the mainstream media interviewing and interested in Ron Paul now?
