Should I date someone who supports Ron Paul?

So, in a rededication to being social, I've embarked on another round of OKC adventures.
One guy, who had a few outlying answers, but otherwise looked interesting, also mentioned strong support for Ron Paul and his effect on politics.
I'm torn. On one had, this makes me worried about both his analytical skills and his empathy. On the other, meeting people is such a crapshoot and it seems silly to disqualify people too easily.
People of metafilter, two questions then:
- Am I being to harsh about Ron Paul? Are there thoughtful, empathetic people who support him? (I also hold this uncertainty about people who like Ayn Rand.)
- When trying to sort through the hundreds of people on OKC, is it better to cast a wide net for unexpected results, or go for the close match?
