WorldNetDaily has given Ron Paul their Man of the Decade award. The very complimentary accompanying article calls him the "tip of the spear in a growing global movement toward liberty." The article claims no one else was even considered for the award.
WND’s “Man of the Decade” award is designated for the man who has,
over many years, done the most to represent goodness, perseverance,
manliness and character. The recipient should be someone prominent
enough to have had an impact on wider American and global opinion. Their
successes and failures for the year are to be weighed and considered.
There were no runners-up considered in the category.
