I'd like to know how you know what the majority of the Republicans are thinking/doing. You have used that phrase in many of your threads, but how can you make that claim?
I talk to many people at the state GOP level and there is one clear consensus that I have noticed.....there is NO consensus!
This has to the most fractured I have ever seen the GOP because many of them believe that Romney is the sacrificial lamb that must be put to rest before the "real candidates" can make a run in 2016. They need to get rid of Romney so that he will not be a burden the next go-round.
The REAL question is how is it that the OP has been outed as a Romney shill/disinfo agent so many times ....and yet is still allowed to post his garbage on ATS?

It's hard to take you seriously when you write many paragraphs questioning things that I have already explained.
So you are posting something that I already knew as a way to show me that I already knew it? Gee that makes sense. The fact that Ron Paul is retiring is already known. You are not breaking new ground here. You are not "informing" people. This is why I posted the link from LAST YEAR that said Ron Paul was not running for Congress again. And again- I have to point out that what you are ranting about now has nothing to do with the OP. This is your thread- your topic- and yet here you are obsessing on Ron Paul some more. You really are pathetic.
Why do you really think I posted the news story about him endorsing someone? It's to show you that he's retiring!!! There's no hidden message there.
But you just did avoid answering my question. I believe I first asked, "What Ron Paul supporters believe to be the future is for Ron Paul?" Then I added, "What do YOU personally believe the future is for Ron Paul?"
You answered with a BS answer, "Only Ron Paul knows what the future is for him." If you follow someone as closely as you claim to follow Ron Paul, then you can read between the lines and draw your own conclusions. Or you can have some shred of hope that he will run again!
This has little to do with Ron Paul and what he plans himself, because as told off by his supporters, the message is supposedly louder than the man himself! Especially after Ron Paul urged his supporters to play by the rules and never even publicly acknowledged the delegate numbers that they spout about. Do you really believe Ron Paul has a future in politics? I'm not sure. It sure doesn't sound like it otherwise you would have answered the question five posts ago and try to back it up with Ron Paul talking points...
If you truly believe in his message then you would hope he runs again right? Even though he is retiring at the end of this year probably after his August festivals.edit on 17-7-2012 by jjf3rd77 because: (no reason given)

This statement clearly shows just how foolish you really are. First off, "reading between the lines and drawing a conclusion based on what I see" is called speculation. It is not fact, it is a guess. As I have already explained to you, I don't play the speculation game. That is something foolish people do when they are more concerned with being right than simply making a point. I have no hopes Ron Paul will run again. He is pretty old. If you paid any attention to any of my previous postings, you would already know that I said well over a year ago that IF Ron Paul were to become President he would be a one term President. There would be no re-election for him due to his age. So if I said that over a year ago, why would I have some hope that he will run again? So you see- your point makes no sense at all.
