Outkast makes sense here and it's a true shame if it is coming to that because of the fanatics. There IS such thing as getting TOO into something to
the point the original idea/s are killed for good. If he is backing down due to that, I wonder if those fanatics would realized they themselves had a
hand in defeating it all? What a sad sad shame.
I wanted to share part of the email (omitting the grass roots fundraising part as it has no place here) I just got from Pauls Cheif Strategist Jesse
"Every day, I see firsthand how humbled and encouraged Dr. Paul is to have the enthusiastic support of so many who are committed to revitalizing our
Let me be very clear. Dr. Paul is NOT dropping out or suspending his campaign.
As Dr. Paul has previously stated, he is in this race all the way to the Republican National Convention in Tampa this August.
And he is deeply grateful for every resource he has been entrusted with to run an historic campaign that continues to defy all expectations.
Looking ahead, our campaign must honor that trust by maximizing our resources to ensure the greatest possible impact at the National Convention.
So while our campaign is no longer investing in the remaining primary states, we will continue to run strong programs at District and State
Conventions to win more delegates and alternate delegates to the National Convention.
To this end, our campaign has several positive and realistic goals:
1) Having recently WON Maine, we believe we can win several more states.
2) We will win party leadership positions at both the state and national levels.
3) We will continue to grow our already substantial total of delegates.
We will head to Tampa with a solid group of delegates. Several hundred will be bound to Dr. Paul, and several hundred more, although bound to
Governor Romney or other candidates, will be Ron Paul supporters.
Unfortunately, barring something very unforeseen, our delegate total will not be strong enough to win the nomination. Governor Romney is now within
200 delegates of securing the party’s nod. However, our delegates can still make a major impact at the National Convention and beyond.
All delegates will be able to vote on party rules and allow us to shape the process for future liberty candidates.
We are in an excellent position to make sure the Republican Party adds solid liberty issues to the GOP Platform, which our delegates will be directly
positioned to approve. Our campaign is presently working to get several items up for consideration, including monetary policy reform, prohibitions on
indefinite detention, and Internet freedom.
Finally, by sending a large, respectful, and professional delegation to Tampa, we will show the party and the country that not only is our movement
growing and here to stay, but that the future belongs to us.
Dr. Paul will begin this new phase of the campaign this Friday by speaking and holding several events at the Minnesota State Convention. He has also
recently accepted an invitation to speak at the Texas Convention, and we are busy scheduling appearances around other State Conventions later this
month and into June.
As Dr. Paul stated in his message yesterday, this fight is NOT over. We will continue fighting and expanding, and “we will not stop until we have
restored what once made America the greatest country in human history.”
Hope that kind of sets what Ron's planning. His plan kinda makes sense. Even he knows he won't win but it's the ideas sprouted FROM his running
that hopefully will stick with people and help somehow in the future.
