Former presidential candidate and Texas congressman, Ron Paul (R) has a message for Mitt Romney ahead of tonight’s presidential debate. Paul said on Fox Business Network that the Republican nominee needs to, “make sure he sounds a little bit different than [Obama] and be convincing that his policies are a lot different.”

Paul said there’s a frustration among supporters who don’t see a difference between the president and Romney. He criticized Romney for being similar to Obama when it comes to foreign policy and the Federal Reserve, but also philosophically.

How will Ron Paul supporters vote in this election? Paul said, “Some will be angry

at the Republicans for the way they retreated at the convention and they might not show up. Some may vote libertarian, some may go with Romney, and actually, some of the young people because of foreign policy, may even go with Obama. […] I know one thing for certain, that they’re not all going to the one place because they’re very individualistic and they don’t see the consequences exactly the same.”

For the former candidate, it goes back to frustration over the two-party system and why there are only two candidates who are debating tonight. Paul has not endorsed Romney, and in fact, he says he hasn’t decided who he is going to vote for. Though, he added, “I don’t think anybody thinks I’m going to vote for Obama.”
