Ron Paul ends his hunt for votes


Rep. Ron Paul of Texas said Monday he will not compete in primaries in any of the states that have not yet voted — essentially confirming Mitt Romney will win the Republican presidential nomination.

Mr. Paul said he will continue to work to win delegates in states that have already voted and where the process of delegate-selection is playing out. He said that’s a way to make his voice heard at the Republican nominating convention in Tampa, Fla., in August.

“Moving forward, however, we will no longer spend resources campaigning in primaries in states that have not yet voted,” Mr. Paul said. “Doing so with any hope of success would take many tens of millions of dollars we simply do not have.”

He did encourage his supporters to still turn out and vote.

His decision not to compete for new votes in other states leaves Mr. Romney as the only candidate still actively fighting for voters’ support in the 11 states still to vote. That list includes the biggest prizes on the board — Texas and California.

Ok, everybody - IF you did NOTHING to support Ron Paul, in his Campaign for President, in 2012 - YOU MAY EFFECTIVELY THANK YOURSELVES FOR ANOTHER 4 YEARS!, OF THE INCREASINGLY CORRUPT STATUS QUO, AND ATTENDANT LOSS OF LIBERTY - NOT TO MENTION - FOUR MORE YEARS OF (GW)OBAMNEY! I've already donated $200.00 - $100.00 on President's Day - Feb. 20th, and $100.00, on Tax Day - April 15th - so, if you've done more than that, by volunteering, or donating FIAT CURRENCY - congratulations!  IF you haven't - RE-READ THE ABOVE. I will be making another donation on May 17th, an early donation, that otherwise would have been made on JULY 4TH, 2012.  I will also likely make another donation on JULY 4TH, 2012.  WHAT ABOUT YOU!?
