Vince Vaughn hearts Ron Paul

(CNN) - Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul received some celebrity love, care of Vince Vaughn Friday.

The actor and comedian introduced the Texas congressman at the Liberty Political Action Conference in Reno, Nevada.

"Vince is a great guy who loves Liberty," Paul campaign chairman Jesse Benton told CNN. "Dr. Paul is proud to have his friendship and support."

According to Paul's website, Vaughn invited Paul and his wife to the premiere of his 2009 film "Couples Retreat," and Vaughn endorsed Paul's 2009 book "End the Fed."

Vaughn is best known for starring roles in such films as "Wedding Crashers" and "Old School."

    No one is going to vote for Dr. Ron Paul because Vince likes him. They may consider researching him which is the number one considering factor that leads to his passionate support base. I which other people would do the same.

    Liberty to a libertarian means that we keep the rights that we're born with. It also means that the use of force (government) to take the fruits of someone's labor (taxation) is slavery. We aren't anarchists. We understand that government has a vital role in society. But we understand that when the government does anything, it does so by wielding the threat of violence (arrest, prison for not paying taxes) against her citizens. The use of violent force against another is immoral, and therefore, we fight to use that force as little as possible.

    Come on people. Let's not make Republicans look stupid! We need a real leader and I'm sorry to say Ron Paul isn't it. He may have some good ideas for some things, but foreign policy is another thing. Step out Paul and let a real Leader step forward. We have to beat BHO if America is to come out stronger.
