Is Ron Paul giving up secretly

I subscribe to Ron Paul's email newletters, and he'd routinely send out emails to his supporters on an almost daily basis, talking about his latest exploits, what his goals and plans were, and generally what the status of his campaign was. I haven't seen an email from him in over a week, and I can't help but wonder if he's sort of "giving up" or if he simply sees the writing on the wall and isn't putting in the effort he once was. As an avid supporter, it's a little concerning. I don't want hate here, and welcome all to respond, I'm just honestly curious what everyone thinks this could be. Am I reading too far into it? Should RP just drop out? Thoughts?

What state are you in? Here in Nevada where we're having the caucus tomorrow, I am getting emails and paper mail from his campaign frequently... Though I have yet to see one of his ads on TV. I have seen Santorum and Romney ads (very dull and lame I must say), however.

Ron Paul never intended to win, secretly.

That much, I know.

Your right I also haven't received an email from him.

Don't worry he will continue on as independent as he full well knows he can't win the republican nomination.

Go Ron Paul!

Not sure if he's given up, but he's on Piers Morgan tonight at 9PM EST.

So...if and when ron paul steps out
can we finally stop the Paul for POTUS nonsense that has been going on for as long as I have been on ATS?

Or do we forever shun reality in the politics arena here?

well I dont think Dr.Paul is personally sending those. Perhaps his staff has taken a break and shifted their focus to more productive tasks that produce more campaign donations. I have noticed the slow down of emails in my inbox as well though. Regardless there is still plenty we can do!

I wasn't aware that you were required to read, and subsequently believe, any of the material posted on ATS. My apologies, kind sir. I'll inform the troops to "stop the Paul for POTUS nonsense" precisely for you. Thanks for the heads up.

I'm in Ohio, BTW, to the poster who asked.

It could be something to do with the fact that he's in the middle of some serious business or in the heat of things.

I wouldn't exactly say giving up. I don't think Paul ever had the plan of winning the election, I think he was aware of his chances. Possibly his position in Iowa and New Hampshire may have been good opportunities, but long term I think he understood that this was going to be a delegate collecting game. By the looks of it though it may not work well for him either way. I posted a thread ealier stating that Paul may very well have a chance to actually win Nevada, if so it would be the first state he's ever won over his history of presidential races. But looking at the polls now, Romney looks too far ahead.

Paul needs to demonstrate that he can win States, but this is becoming less and less of a reality.

Paul has stated on numerous occasions that he has no interest in going independent or third party, and why would he? He knows he'll have less of a chance if he went third party, but I believe the core issue would be that he'd end up causing the GOP more trouble. The last thing Paul needs is to have his name tied to the loss of the GOP candidate in 2012, he will never be forgiven. Paul doesn't want this, not if his son Rand Paul has prospects to the presidency in 2016.

He might, if he hooked up with the right VP, or even Presidential, candidate. He is, undeniably, popular, and would lend a great deal of aid to a ticket...

I've made no secret of the fact that something about the man bugs me... I've never been able to wrap myself around just what it is, either...

The cold hard reality of it is, he never had a chance, and I think he knew that from the get go. He ought to continue his work in Congress, and forget the whole Presidential thing.

Ron Paul himself can only do so much. He needs the backing of the voters. But most of them are to lazy to think for themselves and let the good old TV dictate them who to vote for.

As long as they chant "USA USA", everything is just dandy. Patriotic my a$$

He's hanging around to split the republican vote so Romney will get the nomination, then he will join forces with Romney so he can get a position in the Romney administration.

Personally, I would love to see RP as Sec of Treasury!

If you think any Ron Paul supporters or Ron Paul himself would join forces with Romney you're delusional.

I don't care how many posts you make 'linking' them.

If Ron Paul nonsense didn't clutter up the forums, it would be easier to ignore.

What kind of disinformation is this? are you saying Ron Paul giving up secretly? no he isn't.
In fact




"We have more IDs than Romney had votes in '08," said Paul's state chairman, Carl Bunce, meaning identified supporters who have committed to attend Saturday's caucuses across the state. He wouldn't give a precise number, but Romney's 2008 vote total in his big Nevada win was 22,649.
