Ron Paul is gone.

He retired this year, it was all or nothing for the Presidency.

At least we can all (well most of us anyways) be happy for that. :biggrin-new:

I haven't really overlooked it. He announced this back in the primaries, IIRC.

I'm hoping that Rand can make some good in-roads. He's all the good stuff without taking that express train to Crazytown that his father likes to take.

It's nice to see them go but there is always an up and coming imbecile. LaRouche>Perot>Paul> ?

I called that way back when. I said RP knows damn well he won't be President but he could legally use RP for president donations to pad his several retirement accounts.

I could never get behind Ron Paul because whenever he started making sense he would go off on some crazy tangent about the "military industrial complex" and completely lose me. We'll see how Rand does, but he appears to be better grounded.

LaRouche was a criminal-a tax cheat who ran for President one year from behind bars.
I don't think it's fair to associate law-abiding crackpots like Perot and Paul with a guy like that.:friendly_wink:

Paul announced it back early in the cycle. In-fact Paul wasn't even on the Iowa ballot.

Paul never intended to win this time, in fact it was discussed that this was a means to help build a base support for Rand to run later on.

So I'm right then in thinking that the reason he didn't throw his support behind Romney was to prop up his son. He sacrificed the sovereignty of this country for the political gain of his family. Nice.
