Oliver Stone: I'd vote for Ron Paul over Obama

Oliver Stone told Rock Cellar Magazine that he would vote for Ron Paul over President Obama. This is notable because of Stone's status as a big time Hollywood director with massive influence and a cult following, and also because he supported Obama in 2008.  I wish the interviewer would have asked Stone if there were any plans to make a "Ron Paul" movie. Theaters would be sold out weeks in advance!  See the direct quote below:

"There’s no way that we can continue this spending spree.  In fact, I think in many ways the most interesting candidate – I’d even vote for him if he was running against Obama – is Ron Paul.  Because he’s the only one of anybody who’s saying anything intelligent about the future of the world.
Ron Paul "He’s the only one of anybody who’s saying anything intelligent about the future of the world." --Oliver Stone
How do we go on being who we are? We have an identity crisis here.  But as long as we keep running this fantasy through our minds that we can dominate history, it’s not a wild card, it’s a given!" -Oliver Stone
