If a successful businessman who was also a staunch advocate of gun rights were to run for a political office, even the Presidency, would you vote for him simply because he wasn't a politician?

Most likely, but

as Bauer mentioned, there are other issues to consider as well, foreign policy etc.

In 2008

we had the "hopey, changey" thing (to quote Sarah Palin), with a great political organization. On the other side we had a fine man with a limited resume; little to no economic experience or knowledge, and limited domestic policy experience. Now, here we are.
We need a well rounded candidate with wide knowledge and experience, firmly grounded in the constitution and in what's reasonable and possible to do in cooperation with Congress. Do we have any possibilities? I believe that we do, but rather than me advocating for someone I'd rather have input from all the members, so we can all benefit from each other's background, experience and knowledge. I have a great deal of respect for you people, and enjoy learning from you.

I think that Huntsman

would be a good pick but he is cooling his jets in Beijing and I am not sure that a lot of people could get past the fact that he is a Mormon but then again we elected a Muslim so why not?

voted for Ross to..

Think he's getting a little long in the tooth now, but the old boy had some stuff..

Ron Pauls son Ran reminds me of Ross.. One of those little guys who wont take anything off of anybody..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.
