state. Why he isn't booted completely out of the Republican party for such a blatant attempt to lessen the chance of victory for the Republican Party's Presidential nominee is anyone's guess. He has also managed to get on the ballot in Louisiana now, but that state is not likely to be won by Obama. Montana is HOTLY contested though, and could make the difference in whether our next U.S. President is a war-hero or a Marxist who hangs around with the likes of Raila Amolo Odinga.

Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) will appear on Montana's presidential ballot as the Constitution Party's candidate, according to FiveThirtyEight.com.
The libertarian-minded Paul, who campaigned the GOP nomination, said that he wouldn't play an active role in Montana but also wouldn't object to the Constitution Party of Montana tapping him as its nominee.
Paul received more than a fifth of the support of Republicans in Montana's June primary, which was won by John McCain.
The state Republican Party also held a caucus in February. Paul came in second place, behind former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (R). McCain placed third.
McCain was tied with Democrat Barack Obama in the latest Rasmussen poll of the state, which was conducted in late July.
