This is sad. I'm sorry, RP supporters. I really am. Paul did seem like a man after my own heart, in many respects.
We need to recognise, however, that as some doors close, others will open. Whenever we attempt to achieve progress, we can often find ourselves initially blocked; when what we really needed to discover was, that there is another way around the problem.
Look for it. You'll find it. Ron Paul was but one avenue to a potentially brighter future. There are others; and most importantly, they need to begin with you, and the people immediately around you; not the delegation of your sovereignty to someone else at a distance.

What you do not realize is it is either Ron Paul or Obama for president. Do you know why? The Ron Paul supporters will not support R-money and will take their votes to RP no matter what, which leaves Obama being elected again. If RP got the nomination, all the Republicans would rally behind him and give RP a good chance against Obama.
So the fact of the matter is that it is either RP or Obama, those will be your choices. I guarantee it 100%

Breaking - Ron Paul to end active campaigning. - CNN
Texas Rep. Ron Paul said in a statement Monday that he will end active campaigning in the GOP presidential race, but will continue efforts to win delegates at state conventions.
So, it looks like it's official, which makes me sad. ATS, what are your opinions on this matter?
The main question I have, why continue to seek delegates, when you are pretty much removing yourself from the nomination. Would someone be able to clarify if I am misunderstanding this?

Ron Paul Campaign: "I'm not campaigning anymore, I'm broke, we do horrible in Primary states, and we aren't even claiming to be after the nomination anymore...we just hope for a strong message at the Convention"
Ron Paul Supporters: "This is FANTASTIC news...it's a clear sign that Ron Paul is winning."
Just like last time, Paul bails on all his supporters. He could just as well have kept campaigning for delegates in states where they have not yet been chosen.
What happened to all those "unbound" stealth delegates?
What happened to "Ron Paul math"?
What happened to all the Paul Bots calling the rest of us idiots and delusional for pointing out the obvious?
your Great Leader has abandoned you.

Looks like Ben Bernanke put a little more butter on Ron Paul's bread at their lunch meeting the other day.
How quick was that? Bought and sold like a cheap suit.
